to the Exhibition, or on Thursday morn

from the Examination; also, a report of

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
Lancastrian combined as circumstances
required, connected with the facilities
afforded by having a uniformitjT of the
most approved school books, have ena
bled the Principal, the Rev. Sidney
J Feller, A. M. to conduct the School
himself, with no
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 lo open after a recess of a
few days, or on Mondav, the 5th of Au

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

morals, who might be qualified as
