VTOTICE is respectfully given, that a
Public EXAMINATION, in the
Quanky Academy is to commence on
the 23d of July next, and t o be continu
ed that day and the two following, dur
ing the usual school hours mid that
2 Rhetorical Exhibition,
Is to take place on Thursday the 2Gth,
to begin at 9 o'clock, A. M.
On Monday the lower, and on Tues-
j , -
day the higher branches of English edu
cation ore to undergo examination
and, on Wednesday, mathematieks, phi
losophy, and the languages. Previous
to the Exhibition, or on Thursday morn
ing, will be read the respective merits
or demerits of the scholars, as evinced
from ihc Examination; also, a report of
conduct and progress during the whole
of the preceding session, or the result of
weekly notices on the School Register,
of each individuals standing. Honors
and Premiums, then, to be conferred on
scholars who have especially distin
guished themselves. !
To the above Exercises the Trustees
and Principal solicit the attendance of
the Parents and Guardians of the youth
committed to their care, and of other
gentlemen and ladies friendly to the pro
motion of literature.
Our Institution first went into opera
tion in January last with about twenty
scholars, and has since increased its
number to upwards of forty. Previous
experience on the plan of Mutual In
struction, or that of the Monitorial and
Lancasterian combined as circumstances
required, connected with the facilities
afforded by having a uniformity of the
most approved school books, have ena
bled the Principal, the Rev. Sidney
JVcllcr, A. M. to conduct the School
himself, with no assistance except that
of his scholars. Should any, not ac
quainted with the above plan, doubt the
facility which it affords an individual for
teaching a large number advantageously,
let them not hastily decide against (what
is thought by many whose opinions are
entitled to deference) an improvement
in education; but as one means of get
ting light on the subject, let them attend
the coming Examination and judge for
themselves from the effect of the plan.
The next term (to continue about four
months) is to open after a recess of a
few days, or on Monday, the 5th of Au
gust. RICE B. PIERCE,
JOHN PUR NELL.
N. B. As there is a prospect of a
further accession to the School next ses
sion, therefore, in order to lighten the
task of the Principal, a suitable compen
sation would be made to some young
man, coming well recommended as to
morals, who might he qualified as
And who might wish to improve him
self in study, and as a teacher on the
above named plan of Mutual Instruc
tion. THE TRUSTEES.

considerable additions have been made
ior the comfortable accommodation of
visitors. The Stage from Petersburg,

passengers to our doors. Three large
and airy rooms will be exclusively at

sical Instruments, Chess-men, aselection
of Books, Baths, (warm and cold) an
assortment of wines, &c. and every de-
sirame article lor the table, are provid
ed, bo that these Springs will be as de
sirable a retreat for the invalid, and for
those who desire to escape disease, and
to enjoy pleasure, as can be found in our
State. The Mineral qualities of the
waters have not been analysed; but their
benelicial ellects on those who have used
them, in restoring lost health and in giv
ing iresnncss and bloom to the com
plexion, are not doubted; and speak
more than any analysis could possibly
do, in their favor. Grateful for the en
couragement received the past season,
when they labored under all the disad
vantages incident to new undertakings;
and convinced by experiment that they
can come up to what they promise, the
Proprietors will continue to exert them
selves to secure the confidence of their
friends, and to give satisfaction in every
department ot their establishment.

Accident. A little child of Mr.
Alfred Hicks, of Orange county,
lately came to its death by a
means which, we think, should be
a caution to parents. While run
ning about w ith an open knife in
his hand, it fell on the point of the
blade, which passed through the
skull, immediately above the eye
ball, into the brain. The child
survived but a short time.
