Tiie Trustees of litis Institution, hare the
Treasure of announcing to tlio public, and par
ticularly to lhe friends of education, thaS they
hare engaged Ira B. Newman, as Superinten
dent and Principal of their Academy.
The Trustees invite the atiention of parents
and guardians, who have children to send from
home, to this Institution. They are fitting tip i
the building in the first style, and its location i
iruiii us reureu nature is peculiarly iavoraoie
for a boarding school. It tommands a beauti
ful view of trie Delaware river, near winch it
is situated, and ihe surrounding scencTy suclt
as the lover of nature will admire it is easily
accessible the Easton and Milford Stages pass
it daily, and only S miles distan' from the latter
place, and a more salubrious section of coun
try can nowhere be found. No fears need be
entertainedlhaf pupils will contract pernicious
habits, or bo seduced into vicious company it
is removed from all places of resdtt and those
inducements to neglect their studies that are
furnished m large towns and villages.
M Board can be obtained very low and near the
Academy. Mr. Daniel W. Dinsrman. ir. will
SW t, 'ml
take several boarders, his house is very conve-
ihient, and students will there be under the ira-
Imediate care of the Principal, whose reputa
tion, deportment and guardianship over hi3 pu
ns, aflord the best security for their proper
conduct, that the Trustees can give or parents
land guardians demand.
The course of instruction will be thorough
adapted to the age of the pupil and the time
he designs to spend in literar' pursuits. Young
men may qualify themselves for entering upon
the study of the learned professions or for an
' advanced stand at College for mercantile pur
suits, for teaching or the business of common
life, useful will be preferred to ornamental stud
ies, nevertheless so much of the latter attended
o as the advanced stages of the pnpii's educa
tion will admit. The male and female depart-
M ment will be under the immediate superintend-
dence of the Principal, aided by a competent;

"Coma spirit of Creation's King,
Who oVrtlic woild from chaos sprung",",
Thou'st walch'd with animating wing,
When morning Mars in union sang ;
And with thy calm renewing breath,
Come, rouse our souls from endless death.
Nature's ascending at thy call,
" Thy rapturous call of love divine,"
And laid aside her rigid pail !
Andlo1 how blight her gaimcnls shine!
From darkness let ray soul arise, .
To soar wuh seraphs in the sties. -.y
Ah' see the fragrant flowers unclose
Their beauty in earh verdant mead !
Behold the sweetly scented rose,
In matchless clow begins to spread 1
Come Sharon let thy rose be prcss'd,
To my benighted weary breast.
Lo ? scenes of clear ecstatic glow,
Where ever 1 direct my view
And see ! bright Plicxbus lustres throw
(O'er all things.) from Uie morning dew-
Come u Son of Righteousness." and shine
On this benighted soul of mine.
Melodious music fills the grove,
O ! how delightful to my ear
The matin songs the strains of love,
Rapturous, salute tiic "new-born year."
Do thou my feeble heart, now raise,
To heaven thy morning songs of praise.

Have I one friend on eanlt who'de sorrow,
Or, would shed one lonely tear:
Should I be earned oiT to-morrow.
Shrouded on ih$ silent bier i
None would weep for me sincere.
How sad and lone'y Pm forsaken,
On this earthly bail below ;
Void of a mother she in taken
To the grave whore all must go :
Yea that's certain j
All of us must lie as low. ,

Where transgressions are forgiven,
Where temptations ne'er can come ;
Sinners once must meet their doom.
0 ! pity then the orphan stranger,
Who from place to place must Toam;
For he is always exposed to danger,
And deprived of lriend, or home ;
Yes, kind faiher
He's depriv'd of, friend or home.
This world is but an empty bubble,
Where I rest, yet discontent ;
Since my misfortunes are then double,
0 1 my grief I give it vent,
Willing to be penitent.
Yes, I'm here, and still I languish,
Feel confused and forlcrn ;
I'll now come out and own my anguish,
From the moment I was bom ;
From the moment I waa boro.
0 ! pity then the orphan rover,
Who from phce to place must roam.
There is a gulf we must pass over,
Ere we reach that heavenly homo,
We must watch then
For the son of God will come.
