by and under instructions frem this Bureau,
and none will be received which shall not
pass such inspection.
Persons who may wish to furnish hemp perfectly
free from tow, and ready for spinning, can forward
separate proposals for such hemp; which hemp, il
the proposals should be accepted, must, like the other,
be subject to inspection and approval at said
nuvy-yard before il will be received.
Persons making offers must state the price asked
per ton of 3,240 pounds, delivered at said navyyard,
and must forward with them an obligation
from two persons of sufficient property to become
sureties for the fulfilment of the contract to be entered
into, in one-third the amount of said contract.
To diminish the hazard to contractors of forwarding
hemp from the western States, which may not
be of proper quality, or sufficiently well prepared,

to St. Louis, in Missouri. These agents will be
furnished with samplea of the Riga Rein hemp, excepting
for hemp fully prepared for spinning, and
with the means of testing the strength of hemp, and
will be ready to give all information in their power,
to enable contractors to have their hemp properly
pre|>ared, and to ascertain the strength anu character
of it, before the expense of sending it to the navy-yard
is incurred. It must be distinctly understood,

for the faithful performance of the contract, ten per
centum will be deducted from the amount of all bilh

MRS. DAVID H. BURR'S
French and English seminary/or Young Indies, cornet
oj c. ana wn srrteu, muiungion an.
THE location of this seminary is one of the mos
desirable in the city, on account of its healthy
and airy position. The house is lane and commo
dious, with ample grounds and other facilities foi
amusement and recreation. The principal, so wel
and favorably known in this city, and in Nea
York, from her long experience in teaching, hopei
to give entire satisfaction to all who may confide
their daughters to her care. She is a native o:
France, and familiar with its language and literature,
and conversant with the best and easiest model
of imparting to her pupils a perfect knowledge ol
that language, so that tney can not only read and
write, but speak it fluently. She has secured able
usristants tor various departments, so that all
branches of an English as well as French education
will be thoroughly taught. Pupils who reside in
the family have the peculiar advantages of hearing,
and conversing at all times in the French language,
and of perfecting themselves in the science of music,
being under the surveillance of an experienced
teacher. The course of instruction, besides the
usual elementary branches, includes all the higher
studies pursued in the most approved northern seminaries.
The discipline is mild and affectionate, vet
decided, and is maintained by appeals to the affections
and conscience of the pupil; it is desigued, by a
proper development and cultivation of the bettei
qualities of the heart, to bind more affectionately tin
pupil to her teacher, and by it to secure obedience
As sound physical, moral, and intellectual improvement
and culture, are the great objects desired, it ii
the aim of the principal not so much to crowd the
memory with words, as to draw forth and train the
systematic and vigorous action, the observing, reflecting,
and active powers of the mind. Th<
charges to those who reside in the family are, foi
board and tuition in all the branches of French and
English, J200 per annum for a single pupil; bui
when two or more are entered at the same time, t
liberal deduction will be made. The additions
ckarges per quarter are for music, piano, and guitar
115; use of instrument, fS 50; vocal music, fp. Tc
iay scholars, the charges for tuition in the firsi
department in French or English, are $10
together, $15; in the second department firm
class French or English, $8; together, $12; ir
the second class French or English $7; togethei
*10; in the third department, first class, French
or English *6; together $9; in the second
class, French or English $5; together $8; Latin $4,
other languages, drawing, painting, and dancing:
at professor's charges. Pupils can be entered at any
time, and will be charged only from the date of then
entrance. No deduction will be made to those whc
absent themselves after commencing a quarter, unless
prevented from attending by sickness. Bills in
all cases to be paid in advance. Every attention if
paid to the religious as well as moral and Intellectual
instructions of the pupils, but no sectarian peculiarities
are ever inculcated. Those residing in the family
will attend such churches as their parents may
select, under the care of a teacher. Tney will attend
the Episcopal church with the Principal, when
no other directions are given. Any other information,
and the moat satisfactory references will b<
given on application to the principal.
