Mr. WILLIAM McCASLIN and Mr. ERASMUS
-YOUNGBLOOD, two young gentlemen of fine
Classical education, have the School now in charge.
BoWth Trustees and Teachers flatter themselves with
the belief that their School will not have its superi
or in the State. Either Teacher is qualified to
instruct thoroughly in every branch required for en
trance into our Colleges, North or South. As it is
not probable, from the delay we have unavoidably
encountered in opening the Academy, that we shall
have at any time during the year an inconveniently
large number of Students, those who do come will
enjoy the great privilege of constant and careful su
pervision. Parents will at once see this advantage
in its proper light.
We respectfully ask of our friends, and the friends
of the School, that they will come forward and en

year will be taught. Terins.
