The Trustees of this Institution, have the
Treasure of announcing to the public, and par
ticularly to the friends of education, that they
tve engaged Ira B. Newmax, as Superinten
dent and Principal of their Academy.
The Trustees invite the attention of parents
.nd guardians, who have children to send from
mine, to this Institution. They are fitting up
he building in the first style, and its location
from its retired nature is peculiarly favorable
lor a boarding school. It commands a beauti
ful view of the Delaware river, near which it
is situated, and the surrounding scenery such !
as the lover of nature will admire it is easily
accessible the Easion and .Milford Stages pass
it daily, and only 8 miles distan from the latter
place, and a more salubrious section of coun
try can nowhere be found. No fears need be
entertained that pupils will contract pernicious
habits, or bo seduced into vicious company it
is removed from all places of resort and those
inducements to neglect their studies that are
furnished in large towns and villages.
Board can be obtained very low and near the
Academy. Mr. Daniel W. Dingman, jr. will
-jake several boarders, his house is very conve
nient, and students will there be under the im
mediate care of the Principal, whose reputa
tion, deportment and guardianship over his pu
pils, afford $ie best security for their proper
conduct, that the Trustees can give or parents
and sruardians demand.
The course of instruction will be thorough
adapted to the age of the pupil and the time
he designs to spend in literary pursuits. Young
men may qnalify-themsclves tor entering upon
the study of the learned professions or for an
advanced stand at College for mercantile pur
suits, for teaching or the business of common
life, useful will be preferred to ornamental stud
ies, nevertheless so much of the latter attended
to as the advanced stages of the pupil's educa
tion will admit. The male and female depart
ment will be under the immediate superlntend
dence of the Principal, aided by a competent
male or female Assistant. Lessons in music
will be given to young ladies on the Piano
Forte at the boarding house of the principal, by
an experienced and accomplished Instructress.

A Man xbhois afraid of Hard Cider." Wo
learn through a gentleman who was present at
the late public meeting of the Morns County
Temperance Society, that a leading VanBuren
politician, during the course of a speech m be
half of the benevolent objects of tho society,
ventured to express much sorrow that a certain
political parly, which had adopted the use of
"Hard Cider," should pursue a cours'e that
must prove disastrous to the Temperance cause,
and probably throw it back some years, with
other remarks of the same purport. The dis
tinguished President of the Society roso-wheu
the speaker sat down, and remarked lhat Iik
had neither time nor inclination to follow him
with a reply, but begged leave to rekte an an
ecdote. A lew days since, said he, a gentleman
whose feelings appear to be sorely grieved that
certain-politicians should pursue a course to ren
der "hard cider" palatable, dined in Morristown.
As there was nothing on tke table to drink
stronger than cold watei, this political temper
ance man called for a bottle of brandy, and
drank repeatedly and freely, difring his meal :
and this brandy drinker, ontimre'd tho Presi
dent, is my worthy friend whose stomach has
been so turned against " hard cider." The ef
fect of this simple anecdote upon the audience
may readilp imagined. The gentleman started
to his feet under evident embarrassment, ejacu
lating " I take brandy only as a medicine f

Tiic Good Ca.Hse in Revr Jersey.
The Newark Daily Advertiser says :
West Jersey is all alive. Nothing compar
able to the enthusiasm which is prevailiirg there
has ever before been. experienced in that dis
trict. There were no less than three out-door
gatherings of the people last week. The mee
ting at Bridgeton, Cumberland county ,011 Wed
nesday, comprised 2000 freemen, and was ho
nored with the presence of 500 ladies Mr.
Baer, the Blacksmith, Col. McKenney and
Dr. English, were among the speakers. Sev
en original Van Burcn men were severally
introduced into the meeting in the space of an
hour, as converts to Harrison and Reform, (j.i
the next day there was another immense as
semblage at Woodbury in the adjoining couiv
ty, which was addressed by the same speik
ers, and by Josiah Randall of Phifadelphin.
During the speech, of the Buckeye Black
smith a wagon containing an anvil made i:
appearance on the ground. Baer's eye kin
dled at the sight, and rushing towards it, h
seized the hammer and made the sparks fly f
A friend who witnessed the scene, says thi
way ,ten pound ten' was beaten by him and a
fellow craftsman, amid the shouts of a multi
tude was a caution !" Another meeting was
held in the evening at the Court tlouse, when
Mr. Mc Ilvaine addressed the People.
On Friday, our friends in Burlington Co,
assembled by thousands in tho woods near
Vincenttown, Mr. Southard, Mr. Miller, of
Morris, the blacksmith and other distinguished
speakers being present. In till these meet
ings, the most conclusive evidence was given
that West Jersey will give a sweeping majority
for Harrison and Reform. Our friends there are
in the highest spirits.

With all the professions of sympa
thy for the people by the present ad
ministration, it was hardly to be ex
pected that Mr. Van Buren would at
tempt to revive imprisonment for debt
Yet such is the fact. The 29th sec
tion of the " Standing Army Bill," has
this clause in ifc" and when any
non-commissioned officer or private
shall be adjudged to suffer imprison
ment there being no such goods and
chattels to be found whereon to levy
such fines, the marshall of the district
or his deputy, shall commit such de
linquent to Jail during the term for
wiiioh he shall be so adjudged to im
prisonment, or until the fine is paid,
in the same manner as other per
sons condemned to fine and impris
onment at the suit of the TJ. States
may be committed."
We hope the advocates of Martin
Van Buren will henceforth cease to
call him the friend of the poor. Her
is a plain provision to put a poor m vi
in jail, if he is scumfcrrunate as ut.f :
have enough money to pay a fine I'.;
doing military duty, from.ten to thii?;
days twice a year, and that too. per
haps out of the bounds of his own
state. Ho is ranked too, with all kinds
of criminals and offendersof the U. S.
laws, and may be dealt with as "other
persons condemned to fines and im
prisonment at the snit of tho' United
States!" Somerset Whia
