FOE YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN
BITTER die in the cradle than live to no . pur
pose, or-use iu the world.
The young man or woman Who sees nomore
in life than personal elevation or aggrandize
ment, is the pitiable victim of a thin delusion.
The youngman or woman who neglects to.
obey every generoms - iiipulse from youth up, is
like the grub winding, and swathing itself in
a silken shroud, away from the blessed light,
and air. For generous impulses are the fre-
quent sunbeams glinting from heaven to earth ;
and playing around the hearts of men and woi_
All should bear this in mind : that no young
man, though he be rich in millions, is so liar
th.t he can afford to dwarf body, soul or mind,
by neglecting even The mast - OT tne auras pm
cadent to the development - of a true_ manhood.
There is no poverty like that of
The true man, though coarsely fed and clad,
is a prince among nature's nobility, while a
mean spirited prince is a contemptible beggar
'and pretinder among . ctinventional nubleit..
Every young man shoOld eirive first, and to
the last, to attain to the full.moral_stgture . of,a
meay. For this includes everything that can
go to establish enduring repute.
Fame is oftener miscalled than won. Great
ness is constantly misapprehended: 41: great
intellect does not make a man . great. But the
quality 'of greatness inheres-in a tree union of
superior intellect and moral excellence.
Thus ASRAEIAII Liscotit, more than• any of
modern American publiciete; deserves, and will
receive the award of - greatness in American
history. He -was, among men, .preeminently
nonscientious and good.
He had not the mighty intellect . of Webster,
nor the,subtl,rty -of either Calhoun or,Sewardi,
but he has a higher place in history than ei
ther, fer he had but one ambition in life—to he
the benefactor of his kind.
,this he lived very mesa the
people; joyed in their joy, grieved 'when they
grieved, in all things sympathized with them ;
and finally died for them „ •
Martyrs are not too plenty, even nowadays.
And we can pay Lincoln no higher compli;
went than to say that his life was pure and un
selfish, and hie death as noble as that of the
noblest of those who fell ,in the hour of battle.
The record of this great man, from hie boy
hood to his'death, fa a record of persistent en
deavor to attain to the true_ stature of a ar.st
His example ought to be a life-lesson to ev
ery young man. When we say that don't under

to be President. Lincoln as little expected to
be President as Autocrat of the Russia'. But
the Presidency was an incident of his life-labor,
not the object.
The man who makes public position, empty
honor, wealth, he object of life, will die of
moraland.agiritnat penury and want.
To ant from righemotiies, unbiased by sel
fish ambitions, is to put money at compound
interest. The man who makes it a rule to do
right, and abide the consequences, makes a
great pace toward true manhood.
Such a, man cannot hope to bpve the good
opinion of the selfish, the unprincipled, - and
lie breakers of the laws.-- But be will, in his
'Soul have outlived the fear of man. '
Set out in life with your face toward the-nn•
dying light. Put all doubtful enterprise be
hind you. Resolve to be true to your "higheet
impulses. Tike the responsibility.
Yon have to answer for yourselves, `to eon-
Faience; to your Maker. No man can appear
fur you. Therefore the question is not, ."Did
my father, or grandfather, walk thus, or so,
"or so believe and practice ?"- but rather—" Is
this Right, or Wrong? Is that true, or false?"

Time is the property of no man. •No • man

Success is not the creature of foitnitbus cir

have only seven vessels, it is, of course, impos
for them to make the blockade efficient,
and -blockade running will soon be in a high

The.Trusteet of the Academy are much gratified in
being able to announce the unexpected prosperity of
the Lustitution, under the vigorous administration of
its present efficient Board of Instruction. Its rank and
patronage are now very far in advance of what the
School has enjoyed for many years.
With entire confidence It can now be recommended'
as an excellent place for obtaining sound mental die
cipline, and a thorough preparation for College, or
the duties of real life.
The methods of instruction are those used by all
good edudators and such as have stood the severest
tests of experience in the best Academies and.[Colle.-
gee of the land.
The great aim of the Faculty is to make thinking,
self-hiapfal, as/Preifttat schoiars. They do not by
over mach " showing" and " helping" render their
pupils Mental Cripples for life; nor by the "pouring
in proem" give them an incurable intellectual dys
Miss Fannie &Bash, A 8., the new member of
the Faculty, is a-graduate of Williamsport Dickinson
Seminary, and comes to as very highly recommended
by Prest. Mitchell and Prof. Ferree of that celebra
ted Institution. Other instructors also add their tes
timonials to her worth, ability, and success as a Tea
cher. She is peeuliarly fitted to impart superior in
struction in all-branches of Mathematics.
Miss WOod, de new Teachet of Mastic is from
Massachusetts, is highly recommended as a Teacher
of Vocal as well as Instrumental Music, and will I
prove, no doubt, a valuable acquisition to the School. '
The Discipline is mild, when mildness will secure
cheerful obedience and earnest study, but firm and
unyielding iihi7n — fliiiiteSs seems to be necersaryr
Every scholar is expeeted to do his duty. The Tea
chers, not the students, govern the school. ,(
A Merit Roll, showing the standing of every stu
dent in Scholarship, Deportment, &c., is accurately
kept, and publicly read at the close of each dm.
Parents can examine this at any time, and ascertain
what progress their children are making. And School
Directors may know how to find teachers worthy of
A Roll of Honor. consisting of the 25 students
whose names stand highest on the .Merit Roll. is
formed and publicly read at the close of each term,
and also published in the Agitator.
Numerous and valuable Prizes are offered for Schol
arship, Composition, ite. Five were competed for
during the Fall Term. Still more will be awarded at
the close of Winter Term. • These exert a powerful
and beneficialinfluence upon a large majority of the
students, inciting them to bard [study and willing
obedience. Among these, perfect recitations are the
rule—failures very rare exceptions
The Junior Department shall _receive more often'.

Spelling and Reading will bo required of every
student as a regular exercise.
Brownell's Natural Spelling Teacher--a new meth
od—will be used by all the advanced pupils. The
others spell orally.

and so badly - taught, will reoeivt much -more than
Composition and Declamation are madea speciality.
The methods used during the last term have proved
very.successfulAnit wilt be greatly:is/proved, . .
Original Essays are-required of all the older sehol
ars or as often at least, as once in two weeks, upon
subjects assigned by the teachers. From this there
need be no appeal. No excuse will be received.
The Faculty believe that without the ability to use.
successfully, the tongue and the pen, no person can
be more than half educated.
Calisthenics.--In order to care for the Health of
the students, Watson's celebrated system of Calis
thenics will be introduced. Alt the students will ex
erotic therein occasionally under the direction or the
teachers. • •
A Course of Lectures will be delivered in the Acad.
*my during the Winter term by good speakers. -
The Graduating -Course - is AS good as the best.
Those oompieting it receive Diplomas.
_Many_ improvements and incentives to diligent
study and correct deportment cannot be here men

In - raildroryinstexcellent preparation. Several years
of residence - on the banks of a Southern river, and of
close application to literary work, had so thoroughly
exhausted my nervods system and undermined my
health, and had become a martyr to dyspepsia and
' nervous-headache, recurring at short intervals, and
defying all known medicines in the Materia Medrca.
I had come to the conclusion that nothing but a total
change of residence and },ursuits would restore my
health, when a friend recommended Hostetter's Bit
ters. I procured a bottle, as all 'experiment : it re
quired Out one bottle to C01317/120 me that I bad found
out the right combination of remedies!. The relief It

since I tried HiCstetfetter's Bitters,-and it is but Just
to say that I found the preparation - all that it visit"
to be. It is a Standard-Family Cordial with 111, and
even as a stimulant ; found it batter than anything
else; but we use it in all billious and dyspeptic cases,
from fever down to ague. If what I have now said
will lead any dyspeptic invalid to a sura.ramedy, I
