in announeing that they have made ample ar
rangements for its conduct during the present 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
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 shaH
have at any time during the year an inconveniently
large number of 8tudents, 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
D the School, that they will come forward and eu
ter their boys immediately. The full Scholastic
year will be taught.'Terms.
