family use. and has l*en attested too by thousands of the
most respectable families in the Union.
This Machine makes the celebrated " Double lock
stitch," the only one made by machinery that meets all
the requirements of Family Sewing. Each stitch is tied
twice, so that every one is securely fastened and wholly
independent of all the other stitches for strength, so that
if the seam is cut or every fourth stitch broken, the sew
ing must hold good while the fabric will wear. The
machinery which makes this stitch is a marvel of sim
plicity, requiring no mechanical skill to manage it, nor
does it require adjustment more than the mere change of
thread and needles to adopt it to the character of the
work to he sewed—coarse or tine as the case may be. It
will sew gauze laces, and all varieties and kinds of fab
rics between and including heavy beaver cloth, without
changing either needles or thread equally well, and re
turn to cither variety of work with perfect satisfaction.

" To be, or not to lie— hat is the question !
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings ahd arrows of outrageous opposition,
Or by taking up arms against a sea of printing ink,
And opposing, end them."
tTtHE proprietor of the Argus takes occasion in adver
I. rising his Bindery to indulge in an uncalled lor Hing
about a " sort of a concern," which is hoping " to delude
the public." .Vs 1 have opened a Bindery ou my own ac
count. the inference is that if the public bring their
binding to me, they are in no danger of being defrauded.
For two years I hare worked for Mr. P ARSONS, and he
has taken great pains t sitisfy the public I was the " best
Binder in America," as the columns of the Argus will
testify. Has lie been all that time " deluding the pub
lic?'' If I hlu'e been engaged in a fraud, lie lias been the
principal. But I refer to my Work during that time as
evidence that there has been no fraud [ttiieiieed.

business, I have resumed business here on my own ac

The Collegiate year is divided into three terras of 14

No deduction will be made for absence, except in ease
of protracted illness of over two weeks.
Instrumental Music will not, as heretofore, be taught in
the Institution, but by special arrangement—a class will
be taught in a hall adjoining the grounds of the Institute,
by the Teacher ot Vocal Music.
This arrangement has been adopted for the past term,
and experience lias proved it to be eminently superior to
the plan pursued in former years. Special "pain-i will Ih>
taken to secure the greatest progress of those wishing to
take lessons in this branch. Terms will lie as heretofore :
Tuition on Piano Forte, per term flO 00
Use of instrument for practice 3 00
Pupils boarding in the Hall will furnish their own tow
els, Ac., and the table silver a* their option. It is desira
-1 ble that they also furnish their own bed and bedding
when it is convenient, but when otherwise, these will be
furnished at a slight charge.
It is strongly recommended that students from abroad
| should board in the Institution, as better opportunities
for advancement in study are thereby secured.
.Xormal Department —Special exercises are arranged
without extra charge for tnose preparing themselves as
Teachers of Common Schools. Prof. C. K. COBURN, the
able and well known Superintendent of Common Schools
in the county, has kindly consented to organize the Tea
cher's class, and direct the course to lie pursued.
He will also be present to conduct its exercises as often
as practicable, and will deliver frequent lectures on the
Theory and Practice of Teaching, as also on other subjects
connected with Normal training.
Those persons, therefore, intending to engage in teach
ing for the winter, will find it greatly to their advantage
to be present during the Fall term.
Prof. Coburn's connection with the institution is not
snch as to in aiiy way interfere with the discharge of the
regular duties of his office.
No pains will be spared, on the part of the Faculty and
Trustees in sustaining'the high repnlatation the institu
tion has hitherto enjoyed, and in rendering it more wor
thy of future patronage and support.
