REV. CHARLES A. RAYMOND,
7 IIE Second Session will commence on the
- 9th of January 1852.
The Trustees congratulate them'selves, their
friends and the public, filn winat they now con
sider the permanent establishment onf an institu
tion of learning of so high a character in their
District. The benefits witicl their own children,
with others, have experienced during the past
Session, enables themtn with the gre:ater confi
-dence, to recommend the Institution to the pat
ronage of the community.
The School wma opened on the ISth of Sep
tember last, with thirty-.ne 'upils, and has
since been gradually increasing. It is confident
ly expected that the rnnber in attendance will
be greatly increased during the next Session.
The ltstitute building now contains seven
-rooms, all of which have been built, and are
used, for.purposes of insttruction.
A finne apparatus; a large collection of Maps;
Anatomical Charts, Glubes, &c; a Museum of
Natural Uistory; a Cabinet of hiinerals and
Shells: furnish -unusual facilities for acquiring
a practical knowledge of the differeut branches
of Scienee. a

The Aeadetnictl -yar is divided into Sessions
of 14 weeks e-. it; i-- of great importance
that the student be present at the commence

All bills for Tuition, &c., are payable at the
close of each Sessiwin.
Books, Stationary annd Mtsic, can be obtained
in the Village at reasonable prices.
The Department of Music is tunder the super.
visnioni of one of the most acceurate and accomn
plished teachers in the State; atnd it is believed
that utnusual facilities are aflhrded for tenjitrmng
a thorough knowledge of thnis difficult science.
In addition to regular private lem'ons, thne pupils
in this department are divided into classes, and
taughnt on the plan of Pesitaliizri.
They devote much time to exercises, adapted
to train the car, and the voice, annd to impart an
easy and brilliant execution.
If they puratue the prescribed course of musi
cal instruction, they aequtre the. art of reading
music withe facility.
They arc required to be regular and systemat.
ie in practising daily at thte instituate.
The training and cultivation of the voice,
receive an unusual degree of attention. Thc
science of Elocution is here applied, in develop
ing the voice for singing, with great effe~ct.
The Institution hias been almost weekly visitec
by a large number of the lmadies and gentlemet
of our village, who have invariably expresse<
the highest-degree of satisfaction, at what the:

" WHERE this evening, Charles" asked
r lovelv married woman of her husband. Thi
tone was slightly sneering though she smile4
as she spoke.
" I ani on the visiting committee, and hav
to call on a sick brother," answered Mr.
as he put on his gloves.
The lady pouted.
He took up his hat and approached he
with a playful smile.

"I did not, till I became a Son of Tem

of benevolence, and opened to me a field fur

asked with a toss of her pretty head.
"A young married man by the name of

I learned by a tioto I received fram the Worthy
Patriarch, while I was at ten, is discovere.d to
be quite ill. He has been absent from the
Order for several meetings, but as no one
reported hint ill, I was not aware of it till
now. As he li'es in the next street, I must
go and see him."
" Wlat is he ?"
"A Son of Tempernnece."
I wnean his trade !"
'Then you mean hov respectable is he ?
We Sons of Temperance know no distine
tion of trade within the Order. We are all
brothers and friends,. lie is a mechanie-a

"I had rather not have her."
"Why not go into your father's? I will

"Then pass the time in reading."
"I shall go to bed." %
This was said so very positively and an
grily that her husband said nothing more ex
cept " good evening."
She waited till she heard him close the
treet dootr, and then sprang tip anid begAn
to pace the room. The cricket was in the
way and she kicked it out of her way. The
wo'rkstanid was on obstacle tothe free exercise
of her limbs, and she tilted it over. For full
five minutes she continued in this amiable
mood, during which papers strewed the floor,
chairs were laid on their backs, and the poker
and the shovel took a turn or two of cachuca
about the room. At length she threw herself
upon the sofa. and played the devil's tattoo
with her little heft foot till she wvas tired.
She then pulled a feather fari to pieces, and
east the Iragmnents around her; took up a
book and glanced into it, and flung it to the
farther side of the room, greatly to the peril
of a splendid mirror,nand to the uitter demoh.

she had too just an appreciatiotn of her owri

all of which she thought it was her right te

corner, lest somebody should want a bite.

"Then all is well for us," she answered,
gratefully. " lie is my husband, sir. He

to her. " The fund was in part his own con

It is never regarded in the light of alms."
" But he felt that it was sir, and he is
prond. Well, sir, we struggled on till to
day, when lie proved worse, and nothing to

the Division, and so I put on my bonnet
when lie was asleep and went straight to his
house. He received me kindly, and said my

that's only an hour sinee, and here you are
already, sir, come to see him."

pressions of the deepest gratitude. .1 enter

many words in buying and selling, and wher
too many words are used, there is almost al.
ways a lie somewhere.
THE WOaD oF GOD.-"A neglected Bibk
is the melaneholy proof of a heart 'alienated
from God.' For how can we have a spark
of love to him, if that book, which is the full
manife-station of his glory, be despised1
And yet a superficial acquaintance with it ii
of no avail. If our ear were bored to the
door of the sanctuary; 'if the words never
departed from our eyes;' yet, except they
wero 'kept in the heart,' our religion would
be a notion, not a principle; speculative, not
practical; conviction, not love. .Nor even
here must they possess the mere threshold;
let that be for the world. Let the word be
'kept In the midst of the heart.' here only
can it be operative; for out of the heart are
the issues of life. Here it becomes lively
and substanial truth. Here, then, let a home
be made for it-a consecrated sanctuary in
the most honored chambers, 'in the midst of
the heart.' This inhabitation of the word is
a convenient promise-the test of our inter
est in the Lord and in his people. This
'keeping of the word' will be 'life to those that
find it.' Vigorous and healthy will be the
soul that feeds on thiq heavenly manna.
We shall not then bear our religion as our
cumbrous bondage; we shall not drag on in
Christian duties as our chain. Goodliness
will be an element of joy; the functions will
be free-and lively; the spirit will feel a vital
blow; the mind will be enriched with Di
vine wisdom; the heart will be established
with gospel grace."-C. Bridge's Comm. oi
"0 let our hearts obey
The gospel's glorious sound,
And all its fruits, from day to day,
Be in us and abound."
BEAUTIFUL FIGur.E.-Two painters were
employed to fresco the walls of a magnifi
ient cathedral; both stood on a rude scafodd
ing constructed for the purpo! some forty
feet from the floor. One of t' .n was so in.
tent upon his work that lie uccame wholly
absorbed, and ir. admiration stood off from
the picture, gazing at it with intense delight.
Forgetting where lie was, lie moved back
ward slowly, surveying critically the work
of his pencil, until he had neared the very
edge of the plank upon which he stood.
At this critical moment, iis companion
turned suddenly,.and, almost frozen with
horror, beheld his imminent peril; another
instant, and thle- enthuisiast wo id be pteigi.
eeedeath wa'. quallif- ure-- S uegl~i
e regained-his presence of -mind, and seizing
a wet 'brush, flung. it- against the wall. spat
terine the- beautitul picture wvith unwightly
loteles of coloring. The painter flew for
ward, and .turned upon his friend with fierce
iprscations; but startled at his ghastly
face, he listened to the recital of danger,
looked shudderingly over the dread space be-.
how, and with tears of gratitude blessed the
hand that saved him.
So, said a preacher, we sometimes get ab
sorbed in looking upon the pietnres of this
world, and in contemplating them, step back
wards, unconcious of our peril: when the
Almighty dashes out the beautifull images,
nd we spring forward to lament their des
truetion, into the outstretched arms of mercy,
and are saved.
DANGE.R OE IOSPERITY.-As long as the
vaters of persecution ire upon the earth, so
long we dwell in the ark ; but when the land
is dr, the dove itself will be tempted to a
wanering course of life, and never return to
her house of safety. Many are not able to
suffer and endure prosperity; It is like the
light of the sun to a weak eye-glorions In
deed In Itself, but not proportioned to such
an instrument. In the tomb of Tarentia cer

were over, and he haid nought to do, but
lounge as best he could through life on half

Lieutenant appeared not to notice the intru

unbanched gaze stared. This was too nmuch

his sleeve, and displaying a very broad and
ugly scar. " I didn't get this for nothing, fot

The Republic of Great Britain.
The following from the New York Sun is
indicative of progression with a vengeance:
"A cotemporary falling in with an idea
which we have frequently advanced-that
Great Britain and Ireland will yet form an
United Republic, nominates Richard Cobden
to the Presidency, and mentions the name of
Smith O'Brien in connection with the Vice
Presidency. Though our cotemporaries are
free to speak their preferences for particular
candidates, yet we think our nomination
Lord Palmerston-iq, under present circum
stances, the most judicious. Palmerston,
unless he commits some blunder, possesses
the most elements of success of any man in
the three Islands. In the first election for
President of the United Republic of Great
Britain and Ireland, it will be necessary, to
conciliate the aristocracy, to put in nomina
tion a liberal member of their own order, who
is also 'strong' with the people.
"A candidate of pure Plebeian stock like
Cobden, will not run near so well in the first
two or three Presidential elections as a lib
eral and able man of aristocratic birth and con
nections. It will take some years af.er the
Republic is established to educate the peo
ple up to the standard of pure democracy.
"The reverence for distinction of birth and
fortune must be more generally eradicated
from the popular mind in the British Islands,
before the Cobdens and Briahts can combine
the yote of the people. CotIden, at present,
could probably carry Manchester, and the
vote of the English manufacturing towns,
but he is not strong with the country De
mocracy. There are many other things,
connected with the social condition of the
British Islands, to which we might refer in
support of our opinion that Lord Palmerston
will be the most available candidate, should
he live until the republic is proclaimed.
" As to the Vice Presidency. Ireland would
undoubtedly, be entitled to fill the office,
and Smith O'Brien would be a popular can
didate; but as Ireland will be formed into a
sovereign state, with an independent Legis.
lature, it is more probable that Smith O'Brien
will prefer being first Governor of the Eme
rald State. For stern Republiani.mi, and a
thorough practical acquaintance with the Re
publican system, there is no Irishman, or
Englishmen either, to be compared to John
Mitehell. He would be the best man, there

THE DE.x COT'oN.-We have recently
received some aecount of sales of the Dean
Cotton of last year's crop. These sales
have fully .sustained tho previous reputation
of this cotton, having been made at at ad
vance of 25 to 30 per cent. above the best
qualities of the ordinary cotton. We under
stand that most of this cotton has this year
been purchased up from the few of our plan
ters who have raised it, by a gentleman who
came out from Massnchutsetts last fall ex
pressly for that purpose. While other cotton
was selling here at six or seven cents, he gave
10 to 10 1-2 cents for the Dean Cotton.
Some lots have been shipped to Boston and
there sold at 12 to 12 1-2 cents, while the
best qualities of other cotton was selling
there at 8 to 9 cents. This we believe, is
conclusive evidence of its superiority. Those
wvho have raised this cotton assure us that it
is more productive than the common kind,
and that they would much prefer to cultivate
it even at the same price. It can be picked
out much faster and is liable to less waste
from rains and winds.
There has been great demand for the seed
of late. Mr. Dean wvho introduced this cot
ton into use and who now resides in this
city, is taking measures to have a sufficient
supply of the seed another season. We be
lieve he has now a small quantity on hand.
SLEEING IN CaURCH.--It is a matter of
record that, about .one hundred years ago,
an Indian was conducted by a pious deacon
to witness the service of the sanctuary on
the Lord's day. When the services were
ended, the citizen, on their way homeward in
order to impress upon his -tawny friend the
superiority of Christianity over heathenism,
entered into a detail of the money appropri.
ted by the congregation of which he was a
member for the support of public worship,
the erection of the house, the salary of. the
minister, &e. To all this the son..of thb

Mr. T. . Bell, who, during the late-politi.

Yorkville Misciellany as a c-operation Jour

ders the following admonition:
" In making this announcement, we would
beg to be indolged in giving to our readers
a few observations on two sub-eets. Not
withstanding tli storm through' which opr

by, do not conclude that it may not ibgain
be blown back upon us. We caution you.
to guard well your next-Legislature. Sea

enforced through your Legislature. -Tfie

up by legislation. Think well therefore. on
this subject. Preserve your organization,
and regard him an enemy who attempts to
distract it. Let aspirants to office know that

_We had hoped to see other signs than
these from the party which claims to be. tri
umphant in the State. Instead of earrying
these party divisions into our next elections,
we had anticipated some effort from these
who considered themselves in the. majoritt
to heal them, and thus present an unbroken
front to our common foe. But not only
from Mr. Bell's yaledictory, but from-othor
indications, we are led to believe that those
who in the laite eoitest opposed secession0
-and advocated co-operation as the most ef.
feetive mode of resistance, have determine'd
to renew the strife, and to give office 'and
power to men only of their own party.-TIie

yesterday after noon. Mrs.'Emily Norton,

afflicted for some years with a disease of-the

several diseased teeth, and came to this city
to have the operation performed by her for

last year taken chloroform with happy effect,
under his care, and now Insisted upon having
it administered preparatory to the operation.
She was allowed to inhale the chloroform,
in avery small quantity for several minutes; -
and almost while she was saying she fNlt no
