THE Summer Session of these Institutions cont
MAY, and continues five months. A fund of
$l3OO has been procured, to be applied to the
purchase of a superior philoscptical apparatus and
a stsndase. library. With these facilities for in
struction, the Principals and Trustees of these In
stitutions eller to all, and especially to those seek
ing to qualify themselves for teaching, advantages
equal to those enjoyed by the academical student
in our colleges.
These Institutions are in the lame• village,
though entirely separate, and some distance apart,
thus affording to parents the opportunity of send
ing their sons and daughters together. Believing
that the same principles sought to he carried cu;
in our system, should, and will
eventually, extend to the highest branches of a
liberal education, the Principals and Trustees view
what they have done only as the nucleus of fur
ther and more extended efforts, which, as they
proceed, will enable them to afford to all clauses,
a liberal course of education, at an expense more'
commensurate with the limited means of a large
number of the youth of our State, who are enga
ged in the praise-worthy endeavor to obtain an
education. And with this expectation, they.eom
mend their Institutions: to the patrontge and kind
assistance of all friends of a sound, liberal and
general education.
