HPHE undersigned, who was educated
in Hamilton College, New-York,
having taken the Male Department of
this Institution upon his own responsi
bility, will devote his undivided atten
tion to promote the interest of his School,
and accelerate the progress of his pupils.
He has taught the Classical Department
of the Fayetteville Academy during
three years; and has had charge of. -the
Washington Academy during the last
eighteen months, assisted by Mrs. San
ford in the Female Department. He
therefore hopes, from his long experi
ence and success in teaching, to merit
and receive a liberal share of public pa
tronage. Believing a moral and rigid
discipline not only conducive to the in
terest and future welfare of the Student,
but likewise to the prosperity of the In
stitution, he takes this occasion to ob
serve, that every species of vice, immo
rality, and insubordination, will meet
with exemplary punishment. The well
known morality of the citizens of this
place, the facilities of intercourse by
Stages to every part of the State, and
the cheapness of Board, all concur to
render the above Institution worthy the
attention and patronage of a liberal and
enlightened public. The Classical course
of studies will be preparatory to an ad
mission into the University of this State.
He will supply the Students with all
kinds of Classical and English School
Hooks, as cheap as they can be obtained
in New-York or elsewhere. The Aca
demical year is divided into two ses
sions, consisting of five months each;
and at the end of the first session there
will he a vacation of two months. The
following are the terms of tuition per
