The Collegiate year is divided into three terms of 14

No deduction will be made for absence, except in case
of protracted illness of over two weeks.
Instrumental Music will not..as heretofore, be tnnght in
the Institution, but by special arrangement—a class will
he tnnght in a hall adjoining the grounds of the lustitute,
bv the Teacher ot Vocal Music.
"This arrangement has been adopted for the past term,
and ex j eri lice has proved it to be eminently superior to
the plan pursued in former years. Special pain* will lie
taken to secure the greatest progress of those wishing to

It is strongly recommended that stndent3 from abroad
should board in the Institution, as better opportunities
for advancement in study are thereby secured.
Normal Deportment —Rpecial exercises are arranged
without extra charge for those preparing themselves as
Teachers of Common Schools. Prof. ('. R. COBURN, the
able and well known Superintendent of Common Schools
in the county, lias kindly consented to organize the Tea
cher's class,'and direct the course to be 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 tor the winter, will find it greatly to their advantage
to be present during the Fall terra.
Prof. Cobuni's connection with the institution is not
such as to in any 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 repulatation the institu
tion has hitherto enjoyed, and in rendering it more wor

" To be, or not to be—'hat is the question !
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous apparition,
Or by taking up arms against a sea of printing ink,
And opposing, end them."
THE proprietor of the Argus takes occasion in adver- j
ti.-ing lib Bindery to indulge in an uncalled for fling
about a " sort of a concern," which is hoping " to delude
the public." As I have opened a Bindery on 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 have worked for Mr. PARSONS, and he
ha- taken great pains t > satisfy the public I was the " best
Binder in America," a the columns of the Argus wil
testify. Has he been all that time " delnding the pub
lie If I have been engaged in a fraud, he has been th j
principal. But I refer to my work duriog that time a
evidence that there has been no fraud practiced.
Having served a long apprenticeship at the Bindery
business, I have resumed business here on my own ac
count,as I know of nothing which prevents me from fol
lowing a legitimate and bawful calling for my support.—
I shall endeavor by good work and attention to my busi
ne-- to give public satisfaction.

A few of mady reasons why the SEWING MACHINES
of LADD, "WEBSTER & CO., are prefcrcd above all
1. They are so remarkably simple in their construction.
A child can operate them and understand the mechanism
2. They are tlie strongest Sewing Machine made. It is
almost impossible to break or get them out ot order.
3. They are sure in their operation; finishing the
work in a uniformly perfect manner.
4. They make a light lock stitch, alike on both sides of
the work, which cannot be unraveled.
5. They stitch, hem, bind, fell, run and gather, with
6. They sew equally well the lightest and the heaviest
7. They sew over the heaviest seams without changing
the tension or breaking the finest thread.
8. They use any No. of Cotton, Thread or Silk directly
from the spool.
'j. They use a straight needle ; carved ones are liable
10. The needle has a perpendicular motion. This is
absolutely necessary for heavy work.
11. They have a wheel feed; none others are in constan
contact with the work.
12. They run easily and almost noiseless•
13. They are not liable to oil the dress of the operator.
14. They do not require a screw-driver to set the needle.
15. They do not have to be taken apart to oil or clean.
16. They arc capable of doing a greater range of work
and in a moro perfet manner than any other Sewing Ma
chine : as is proved by the result of our challenge for a
trial, which has never been accepted.
