for subscribing to and reading the New York

Important Additions llmproYenentf
Autumn Term to Commence August 17
THIS Institution which has been in eur
cessful operation for ihe past ten year ,
is about undergoing a very important rer
ovation, in order lo place it on a more sta
ble basis than ever, and present facilities
which are not surpassed by ordinary Acad
emies in Northern Pennsylvania. Among
the improvements will be a large three
storied building which will give much ad
ditional room and gteater conveniences lor
boarders ; a commodious hall for a lecture
room and public exercises, convenient clas
rooms, a library and reading room contnin
ins a cabinet of minerals and curiosities,
bath rooms, &c. An experienced and
thoroughly qualified classical teHcher and
lectnrer will be at the head of the Board of
Instruction, but the Principal will have the
general superintendence of the institution
and assume a share ol the duties of teach
ing. Regular lertojes will be delivered
upon various scientific subjects, as well as
upon the theory and practice ol teaching,
and a Normal Class of young men and
women who wish lo qualify themselves ior
teachers' profession, will receive especial
attention and assistance.
The course of Instruction in the sehool
will be thorough and systematic, calculated
in embrace Ihe various branches of a prac
tical education. Ample provision will be
made for Ihe study of the higher Mathe
matics, the elucidation of Physics, and the
Natural Sciences, by means of suitable ap
paratus, and for the study ol the latin,
Greek, and German languages, to enable
students to qualify themselves for commer
cial and scientific pursuits, or to enter any
class at college.
The conntiy location of this Semina-y in
a plessant village, in a healthy and flourish
ing neighborhood, well known for the ele
vated tone of its moral sentiment, and
where the pupiN are not surrounded by
those demoralizing influences, and lemp
tations found in our cities, larger lowns and
many other localities, with no outside in
fluences to divert their attention Irom liter
ature and the work of mental culture, pre
sents attractions and inducements to con
siderate parents emulous students, seldom
found surrounding large schools and acad
emies. The Literary Society ako, or.e of the old
est and best conducted in this section of
coumry, presents an attractive feature and
useful auxiliary, to a practical education.
The improvements will be under the
immediate charge of an efficient Board ol
Trustees, appointed by Ihe Seminary Com
pany, and will be completed in time for
the Autumn terrr, to commence the 12th
of August next.
While thankful for past patronage we
winh lo merit a continuance of similar .ra
vors, and as we intend lo include a higher
grade and wider range of insi.roc'ior:, we
retpectfully solicit a careful examination
into our facilities and claim.
Boarding, washing, tuition, lights and
incidental expenses, for one quarter of
eleven week, will be Thir y Dollars, one
half payable in advance the o'.her half
and all tuition bills will be expected prompt
