twelve years, and is believed to be equal to any
Actulemy in the State in affording facilities to
young men for acquiring a thorough academical
education, either for business or for college. lie-
ing situated in a very pleasant neighborhood in
the country, the pupils are removed from thoso
temptations to idleness, dissipation and vice, which
are the bane of similar institutions in town; and
the whole surrounding vicinity will vie with any
place in the State for healthfulness, and for the
hiyh tone of morality pervading the community.
The buildings, recently, have been greatly im
proved, and are orge, appropriate and commodi
ous, constructed according to the latest and most
approved models of school architecture ; and are
believed to combine all the essential requisites for
the advantage and convenience of both learnerand
teacher. Pupils from a distance are required to
