The Trustees of this Institution, have the
pleasure of announcing to the public, and par
ticularly to the friends of education, that they
have engaged Ira 33. Newman, as Superinten
dent and Principal of their Academy.
The Trustees invite the attention of parents
and guardians, wbo have children to send from
home, to this Institution. They are fitting up
the building in the first style, and its location
from its retired nature is peculiarly favorable
for a boarding school. It commands a beauti
ful view of the Delaware river, near which it
is situated, and the surrounding scenery such
as the lover of nature will admire it is easily
accessible the Easion andMilford Stages pass
it daily, and only 8 miles distant from the latter
place, and a more salubrious section of coun
try can nowhere be found. No fears need be
entertained that pupils will contract pernicious
habits, or be seduced into vicious company it
is removed from -all places of resort and those
inducements to neglect their studies that are
furnished in large towns and villages.
Board can be obtained very low and near the
Academy. Mr. Daniel W. Dingman, jr. will
take several boarders, his house is very conve
nient, and students will there be under the im
mediate care of the Principal, whose reputa
tion, deportment and guardianship over his pu
pils, afford the best security for their proper
conduct, that the Trustees can give or parents
and guardians demand.
The course of instruction will be thorough
adapted to the age of the pupil and the time

The application of the principal of PURGA
TION being allowed to be one of the greatest
utility in the cure and prevention of disease, it
is of "the utmost consequence to as certatn what
medicine is capable of producing the effect de
sired, in the easiest, and at the same time in
the most effectual manner, It has no longer
to contend with the blind prejudices of the
public ; it is only with those low who are still
determined to be "killed according to rule,"
like the people of old, " who would have" a
u King to reign over them." But, thanks to
the circulation of newspapers thanks to the
frenerai diffusion of knowledge, which enables
nineteen twentieins oi me vsvrurj iu ieuu
and judge for themselves now we no longer
believe in swallowing . that d eadly mineral,
Mercury professing to cure, but uuiversally lea-vino-
us in a worse condition after its use.
We no louger believe in the absurd notion
that Inflamations of any kind cafii be cured by
abstracting our life OUR BLOOD, it is now
understood that an Inflamation is a wise ordi
nance of Nature a signal that she requires the
assistance of purgative medicine to ease her
of tho oppressive burden, which she proves by
the high fever and the strong pulse, is wanted
to be removed. In other words, the body calls
for a VEGETABLE CLEANSING.
Brandreth's Vegetable Universal Pills require
skill in their administration ; the printed direc
tions only have to bo observed and they des
cribe the just proportion of the dose to the
magnitude of the disease to be cured.
Let all persons read the following opinion of
a gentleman who well knows the quality of
these Pills :
This medicine is acknowleged to be one of
the most valuable ever discovered, as a Purifi
er of the Blood and Fluids. It is superior to
Sarsaparilla, whether as sudorific or alterative.
It stands infinitely before all the preparations
or combinations of Mercury. Its Purgative
powers alone are of incalculable value ; for
those Pills may be taken daily, FOR ANY
PERIOD, and instead of weakening by the
cathartic effect, they add strength, by taking
away the cause of weakness. There is no
good Mercury does, which these Pills do not
likewise; but they have none of the miserable
effects of that Deadly Specific. The TEETH
aienot injured; the BONES and LIMBS are
not paralyzed no; but in the stead of these dis
tressing symptoms, new life and vigor is ani
mate and evident -in every movement of the bo
dy. BRANDRET'HS PILLS are indeed a
Universal Rfjikdv for thev cure opposite dis
eases ; they cure INFLAMMATORY and
CHRONIC RHEUMATISM! They cure
DIABETES and STRANGURY ! Thev cure
DYSEENTARY and CONSTITUTIOOAL
COSTIVENESS ! They will cure all these
apparently opposite diseases, because they
Cleanse and Porifv the Blood ; provided
however, Nature is not beyond all Human As
sistance. For years this medicine has been be

er it has been introduced, it has superseded all

Pcblic Opivion from whose decision there is no
appeal, has been so often and so loudlv manifested
in favor of BRANDRETH'S VEGETABLE U
NIVERSAL PILLS, that it is not surprising there
should be found in almost every city, town, and
village in the United States, persons so depraved
at heart, and so utterly devoid of the principal of
moral rectitude, as to manufacture a spurious arti
cle, and palm it ofTon the unsuspecting public as
the genuine medicine, from the result of which so
many happy results have been accrued to humani
ty. It is painml to trunk: mat an mestimaoie good

New Volume commenced wilh the May Number.
TlIE Ladies' Companion, established in May,
1834 a popular and highly esteemed magazine of
General Literature and the Fine Arts ; embellish
with o-orgeous and costly engravings on steel,- and
the Quarterly fashions ; and also with Fashiona
ble and .popular Music, arranged for the Piano
Forte, and Guitar.
Since the publication of the number for Novem
ber, the demand for the Ladies' Companion has
been unprecedented and beyond the most sanguine
anticipations. At the commencement of the vol
ume an additional number of copies were printed,
which was considered at the time adequate to sa
tisfy all the orders which might be received, and
leave a considerable number on hand for subse
quent calls. The publisher is more than gratified
in stating that the whole of an edition of six thou
sand, five hundred copies, was completely exhaus
ted before tho issuing of the third number of the
volume ; and, consequently, he was compelled to
reprint a second edition of two thousand copies,
making the circulation of the Ladies' Companion
eight thousand five hundred, at the termination of
the tenth volume In consequence of this great
and unparalleled increase of new subscribers, he
has determined to commence the new volume for
the ensuing year with thirteen thousand : hoping
that he will thus be enabled to supply all the de
mands for tho Ladies' Companion, as well as those
disappointed in commencing wilh the tenth vol
ume. The proprietor feels grateful for that en
couragement which has been so lavishly bestowed
upon his magazine, and at the same time he begs
to assure the readers of the Ladies' Companion,
that it is determined resolution to meet it with a
corresponding liberality to merit its continuance.
The work appears in beautiful new type, printed
on the finest paper ; smoothly pressed, and neatly
stitched in a handsome cover.
The Ladies' Companion contains a larger quan
tity of reading than any other magazine issued in
in this country, and its subscription price is only
three dollars 'a year, while the great combination
of talent secured for the coming year will render
it unequalled by any other periodical.
Splendid Steel Engravings, prepared by Mr. A.
Dick, ornament the work one of which accompa
nies each number. These plates are entirely new,
and are engraved at a heavy expense by one of the
best arstists in America, expressly for the maga
zine. The designs are selected with a view of in
teresting the general reader, and enhancing the
value of the work, for its superior pictoral embel
lishments. It is with pride the proprietor announ
ces that the Ladies' Companion is the only maga
zine published, in which new and elegant steel
plates appear regularly. Those accompanying
other monthly periodicals, are generally firstworn
out in annuals. In addition to the engravings
mentioned, a correct plate of the Quarterly Fash
ions for Ladiest will appear in the June, Septem
ber, December, and March numbers, independent
of the usual embellishment. It is the determina
tion of the proprietor, that these fashion plates
shall appear m a style hitherto unknown. It lite
rary character will undergo no change, as it will
remain under the charge of the same Editors a3
heretofore. Articles from the pens of the most
distinguished writers, will appear in the forthconv
ing numbers, among which may be enumerated the
following: Mrs. Holland, Emma C. Embury,
Lydia H. Sigoumcv, Frances S. Osgood,
Ellet, Caroline Orne Seba Smith; Mrs. Hairing

The Musical Department of the Ladies' Compa
nion has ever commanded a large share ol atten
tion. and has been looked upon with no little in
terest bv its readers, and more especially the La
dies, whom the nublishcr is anxious to please. It
will continue to be a subject of more than usua
care to him, and to the Professor under whoso su
pervision it is placed, to make that portion ot the
magazine deserving of the countenance of every
lover of music.
Tac Work in General. Of every department an
equally careful supervision will be strictly oxer
cised by the Editors, and all appropriate expendi
tures will be liberally bestowed, as it is the de
sign of the publisher, with the aid ot his contnbu
tors and the advice of his friends to make the La
dies Companion distinguished for the beauty and
accuracy of its typography, the variety and high
tone of its literary articles, the quality and value
of its music, and the unequal splendor ol its pic
toral embellishments, and the accuracy of its quar-
nunciation had ever been made, and public indig- j terly fashions. The proprietor pledges himself to
nation never "been expressed.
Since, however, this destructive evil still exists,
and neither the fear of God, nor of earthly punish
ment, can entirely put it down, it becomes my im
perative duty again and again to caution the public
against purchasing pills of a druggist, professing
to.be Brandreth's Pills for as under no circum
stances is any of this class made an Agent, it fol
lows of course that the Pills sold at such places
professing to be Brandreths Pills are universally
base counterfeits, highly injurious to the health of
rCP Established Agents for the Genuine Bran
dreth's Vegetable Universal Pills, are Invariably
furnished with an engravod certificate, signed, JB.
XSKAR'DKETH; OT. . in my own hand
writing. This certificate is renewed every year
and when over twelve months old, it no longer
guarantees the genuineness of the medicine. It
would be well, therefore for purchasers carefully
to examine the certificate, the seal of which is neat
ly embossed on the paper, in order at least that the
safeguard of imposition may not at least be suscep
tible oi imitation.

use all honorable means to maintain the superiori
ty which the Ladies' Companion has obtained.
For five years he has steadily pursued a course of
improvement, and he flatters himself that his pre
sent facilities are such as to give the work eminent
advantages over ah other publications
From the foregoing it will be perceived that the
Ladies' Companion embraces every department
within tho range of Belles-Lettres and the J? me'
Arts: and no exertions or expense will be deemed
too great to render the work equal to any other
extant. I he flattering and general testimonials
of nearly every contemporary journal in the United
States, and in fact, many on the other side of the
Atlantic, have strongly asserted the undeniable
claims of tho Ladies' Companion to the support of
the public generally. There is no work that give
its readers such a great return for their money.
