T HE Trustees of this Institution take pleasure
in announcing that they have made ample ar
rangements for its conduci during the presnt year.
Mr. WILLIAM McCASLIN and Mr. ERASMUS
YOUNGBLOOD, two young gentlemen of fine
Classical education, have the School now in charge.
Both 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
instrutthoroughly in every branch required for en
trance into our colleges, North or South. As it is
not probable, from the delay wo 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 friend.i
of the School, that they will come forward and en
ter their boys immediately. The full Scholastic
year will bo taught.

Tennessee, and is six years old this Spring. Hie
was sired by Imp. Sovereign, his dam was Celerity
by Imp. Leviathan. Celerity's dami was Patty Puff
by Pacolet; Patty Puff's dam was Rosa Clack.
For pedigree and performnances GAMBLE will
compare with the best horses of his damy. H~e com
bines strength and action with fleetness and endu
rance. He ran in Charleston in February 1853 the
best race of two mile heats ever run over the
course, and but for an unavoidable accident would
have distinguished himself as a four miler.
