MANY PROMINENT PHYSICIANS in the
city of New York and other places, finding that'll

the use of this medicine; and, after witnessing its

ment of all the diseases for which it is intended,
but in some instances accepting the agency of it
to facilitate its introduction into more general use
by the Faculty.
The inflame of this composition upon the fe
male constitution is of the most friendly kind;
the most delicate and feeble female need have no
tear in its use for any length of time, for it con
tain any mercury, nor any article which ran
p.tove in any way injurious, being made entirely
of vegetable extracts, and prepared to taste like
a pleasant cordial.
'The modes operandi of this remedy, in the cure
of this class of diseases, is through the general
economy of the system, with the peculiar deter
mination to the female organs.
ADDITIONAL PROOF of this Catbolicon
being worthy of the confidenc, of the afflicted, as
a Sueresgul, Safe and Cheap Remedy, will be

observations touching the nature and symptoms
of the diseases, to which the attention of Ladies

mences on WEDNESDAY THE 4TH DAY OF
MAY, and continues live months. A fund of
$l5OO has been procured, to be applied to the
purchase of a superior philoscphical apparatus and
a standard librai7. With these facilities for in
struction, the Principals and Trustees of these In
stitutions offer 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 same village,
though entirely separate, and some distance apart,
thus affording to parents the opportunity of send
ing their sons and slaughters together. Believing
that the some principles sought to be carried out
in our common school 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 classes,
a liberal course of education, at nn 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 cam
