A POET'S ROMANCE AND REALITY.
The Howilta are all porta. William, Mary, and
Richard, are well known by their writings, and what
is mora, they red oca thair poetry to practice. Among
(he schemes entertained by litis family and their
friends, was the settling or a colony in Australia,
upou poetic and peace principles, and uttagnnist to
worldly wisdom and the working-day world. A
fertile tract ante obtained some two or three years
ago by the Utopians, and Richard Howitt and
family, with aeveral others, all of the eociety of
i . Friends, left the rugged shores and change fhl skies
of England, for the ever-blooming fertility and
cloudleaa skies of the southern hemisphere. William
and Mary, with some additional eofonisu, were to
join them >n their paradise after a time. The first
tidings the world at large hae of the success of the
endeavor?and ail the world were its well-wishers?
comee in the form of a lyric from Richard, which
telle ua very plainly that the first generation will
aing the songs of exile, though their posterity may
have no "old impressions" to mar the delights ot

MRS. CAUDLE'S CERTAIN LECTURES.
uctcbe in.
Mr. Caudle hot remained dawn ttiArt till pott one, with
a friend. \
"A pretty time of night to come to bed, Mr.
Caudle. Ugh! Aa cold, too, aa ice. Enough to
give any woman her death, I'm sure. Whatf 1
ahouldn't have locked up the ooala, indeed? ft I
hadn't, I have no doubt the fellow would have staid
all tight. It's all very wall for you, Mr. Caudle, to
bring people home; but I wish you'd think first
what's for supper. That beautiful leg of pork
would have served for our dinner to-morrow; and
now it's gone. I can't keep house upon the money,
and I won't pretend to do it, if you bring a mob of
people every night to clear the cupboard.
"I wonder who'll be so ready to give you a
supper when you went one; for want one you
will, unless you change your plans. Don't tell
me! 1 know I'm right. You'll first be eaten up,
and then you'll be laughed at. I know the world.
No. indeed. Mr. Caudle, I don't think ill of
everybody; don't aay that- But I can't tee a
leg of pork eaten up in that way, without asking
myself what it'# all to end in if auch things
go on? And then he muat hare picklee, too!
Couldn't be content with my cabbage?no, Mr.
Caudle, 1 won't let you go to aleep; it'# very
well to #ay, let you go to aleep, after you're kept me
awake till thia ume. Why did I keep awake? How
do you suppose I could go to aleep, when I knew
that man waa below drinking up your substance in
brandy-and-water? for he couldn't be content upon
decent, wholesome gin. Upon my word, you ought
to be a rich man, Mr. Caudle, you hare auch very
line friends. I wonder who givea you brandy when
you go out!
, "No, indeed, he couldn't be content with my
\ pickled cabbage?and I ahould like to know who
makes batter?but he muat hare walnuta. And you,
too, like a fool?now, don't you think to stop me,
Mr. Caudle; a poor woanan may be trampled to
I death, and nerereay a word?you, too, like a fool
,?1 wonder who'd do it for you?to insist upon the
girl going out for pickled walnuts. And in such a
night, too! With snow upon the ground. Yes;
you're a man of Ana feelings; you are, Mr Caudle!
but the world doea'nt know you aa I know you?
fins feelings, indeed! to send the poor girl out, when
1 told you, and told your friend, too?a pretty brute
pa is, I'm sura?that ths poor girl had got a cold,
and chilblains on her toes. But I know what will
be the end of that; she'll be laid up, and we shall
pays a nice doctor's bill. And you'll pay it, I can
{ tell you?for I wont.
[ f "Wish you were out of the world? Oh ! yes, that's
i ?J1 very easy. I'm sure I might with it. Don't
| swear in that dreadful way ! Ain't you afraid that
fhd bed will open and awallow you? And don't
awing about in that way. Thai will do no good.
Xflat wont bring back the leg of pork,?and the
brandy you're poured down both your throats. Oh,
Know u I i in sure 01 n. i oniy reconeciea ll
yrhnn I'd got into bed,?and if it hadn't been ao cold,
vould have aeen me down ataira, again. I can tell

passed?that I left the key in the cupboard,?and I
lutow it?-I could aee by the manner of your coming

However, there'a one comfort: you told me to

UNFORTUNATE DIFFERENCE OF OPINION.
It la bad enough to aee the Violence of political:
feeling, which too often etire up the worn paeaiona,
and array* brcthrea and kinamen againwt each
other. But thia ia a neeeaaary evil, and one which
we can reasonably tolerate, when wa reflect on the
greater aecurity of fVee institutions under a full
tnough excited discussion of public interacts. The
storm may alarm ua for awhile, but it will paas
away and leave the political atmosphere much purified.
A little popular excitement ia far to bo preferred
to the dull, heavy, fatal eubmieaion to tyrannous
axacuone, however we may be lulled to reel by
the sweet comforts of peace.
However objectionable may be these political discussions,
they are nothing, in our minds, when
compared to the horror* of excited religious collisions.
We have been led into this train of thought
by the proceedings of the Board of Baptist Missions
held in Providence, R. I. We copy the following
from the N. Y. Express:
"Other speeches were made by northern and southern
gentlemen, when, at s late hoar, the Rev. Dr. Meginnis, of
Hamilton, N. V., Introduced the following resolutions as a
substitute for Dr. WajrlaedV :
"Whereas the American Baptiet Home Missionary fioclety

Horn we ooo number of reverend ministers at
the North, whose hole mission should teach
them to have charity and love for their fellow-ehristiene,
to cultivate the work of peace and good will,
apd to bind together the moat distant aections of thu
christian land hy the) strong cords of religion and
love?we see these "men or God," to whom the
people should look for nohiemodels of excellence,
lifting every effort (and, unfortunatsly, succeeding)
in bringing about a division between tba northern
and southern Baptists. These self sanctiied Pharisees
set themselves up as belter and purer tlmo their |
neighbors, and profess to be horrified at a communion
with the pious ministers of the South, whose
inexpiable offence is the misfortune of owning pap
staves. Have these northern fanatics no regard for frot
the memory of Washington and Madison;?southern q
slaveholders, whose noble deeds of public good and |,a(j
whose private charities and pure christian lives have |eft
placed them on a level with the greatest benefactors ^
of the world? When war swept over the land, and u
the God of hosts was appealed to by this Union of "
free Slates, was the question of owing slaves for a
moment allowed to cast a single doubt over the WI
patriotism of the southern people? Did the northern
people, under the puritanical spirit which now
sways too many of them, refuse the assistance of a|llJ
the brave sons of the South, who rushed, at a ra||
moment's warning, to the defence of the north- me
ern frontiers? If, then, our motives were aane- ,j,e
tioned and our sympathies appreciated at that t|,e
time; if, in appealing to the God of battles, the _
people of the whole Union, not excluding southern t{^
slaveholders, knelt together around the altar of ]
their country, and, with one heart, besought the wj,
blessings of Heaven upon our righteous cause, tj,e
what has sines occurred to place a mark of condem- ?f
nation on the southern people, to make them amena- nut
ble to northern puritans, and, by excluding them t;le
from a communion of religious feeling, to sow the p?,
seeds of disaffection to the Union? Whence do the pre
self-righteous ministers of the North derive the au- .lro
thority to dictate terms to their southern brethren? w|,
to banish them from all participation in the board of (t,e
missions, unless they wipe out the "damnable spot" trje
of slavery? Are not the people of the South, on the tjor
whole, as virtuous, as patriotic as the people of the a8?
North? Do they not obey the laws and sustain the 4;.
constitution of the Union? Do they not worship pjj,
Qod as reverently, and practise the Christian vir- ?re,
tuea as scrupulously as their fhllow-citizens of the
North? Why, then, at thia lata day, do we aee y,.
our southern people denounced Tor a heinous t;,e
sin ia the eyes of God and roan, our ministers Ujr
cut off from n general association for the good j
of the church, and one of the links of the na- ?r
tional Union weakened? Not long since, a simi- 0f ,
lar movement was made in the Methodist church, cja|
by which the North and the South were eepara- tet|
ted in feeling. That has been followed up by the j
present action of the northern Baptists; and it is impossible
to say where the work of dissolution, so her
rapidly progressing, may terminate. The jealousies ,uc
of rival religious institutions may create embittered terl
feelings, an a, in the end, destroy the highest incen- pre
lives to the love of the Union. It is evident, that gt,
the fanatic spirit of abolition, which has thrust itself <]
into the political canvass, has reared its horrid crest y0||
in the bosom of the religious community of the ?
' North. If not arrested, it will poison all the better thai
feelings of our northern, brethren, and engender a ofti
bitterness of language and action, that must prove 'ei1
fatal to the peaee ana union of the States. We in- "]?j
voke our northern neighbors to pause in their mad ube
career. The people of the South are devoted to the act
Union?they revere the constitution of their fhthers, bFJ
and will die in its defence; but they cannot, with m(i
composure, see their dearest rights assaulted, their eri
elevated motives aspersed, their worship of the Cre- gra
ator insulted. In the name of religion, of free insti- |roj
tutions, and of the blessings of enlightened society,
we pray that the northern people may not continue rig)
in a course, which may render a dreadful alternative cur
necessary to our safety.

IMPROVEMENT IN SUGAR-MAKING. i
A new process for the manufacture of sugar has >t|>(
recently been introduced into the southern States (0
and the West Indies. It is the invention of a French ^
chemist. We had the pleasure about a year since
of visiting an estate on the south aide of the island J^ut
of Cuba, where the apparatus for this new process
of manufacture had just been erected under the su- (
perintendence of the patentee. The whole process (ja(
was kindly explained to us bjr Mr. Lapice, of Mis- nt j
siasippi, the agent for the United States. The de- to|)
tails could not be made intelligible to our readers,
without drawings of the different parts; but the in- [D|!
vention, no doubt, as soon as it is generally intro- thj
duced, will work quite a revolution in the manufacture
of this most necessary artic|e of domestic use.
The process consists, substantially, in boiling the for
juice by steam, instead of in kettles, as in the ordi- j
nary procesa. The product is fully equal to the ren
beat clayed Havana sugar; and for all practical pur- 0f,
poses is as rood as ordinary lump sugar. It is
claimed that by this mode the expense of manufac- ,
ture is greatly reduced?the time shortened, and an ^
increased yield of 20 per cent, effected. hai
The New York Journal of Commerce, in speak- t[,e
ing of a sample of new sugar, which had been
shown them, says: "The new process is working uni
wonders in the sugar of Louisiana. We have at
our office a sample of three hundred packages, made 0f,
on one plantation, which is whiter, and on the whole jq
more beautiful, than any sugar ever imported from ov(
the West Indies. The expense of the new process ,u.
Lb no more limn that of the old, except for ma- tj,e
chinery. Tliia parcel of sugar woe received at Phil- ant
adclphia, and moat of it aold there at 9J cents per ?a(
pound. A small portion of it has been brought on J^r
here, and aold at 9| to 92 cents per pound. The ins
highest sale of St. Croix sugar yet made, was at 9J .,jc
cents." co.
Whether this is manufrctured on the plan above ear
alluded to or not, we cannot say; but we are certain, t),e
from what we seen, that the sugar manufactured by _e
that process will fully equal the sample here spoken
of- tioi

Conducting the electric fluid across riverb. ,n ,
?The particulars of the plan by which Professor 0f,
Morse naa conducted the electric fluid across rivers, wai
by means of the water itself, are given by him in a but
letter to the Secretary of the Treasury, at Wash- cht
ington. The facta which led to the discovery, and we
which we have before seen published, are as fol- jes
lows: In the autumn of 1842, at the request of the j
American Institute, Professor M. undertook to give we,
to the people ef New York a demonstration of the anc
practicability of his invention, by connecting Oov- bot
ernor's Island with Castle Garden., a distance of one wa
mile. For this purpose he laid his wires, properly \
insulated, beneath the water. He had just com- tj,e
menced operating, and received two or three charac- fro,
ters, when his intentions were completely frustrated
in the destruction of a part of his conductors by a tbe
vessel, which drew them up on heranchor, and cut jntl
them off. It was during the subsequent night, gpj
whilst suffering mortification at this failure, that he art
conceived the plan of arranging his wires along the i
hanlra nf nvpr an na In miiM tkfl WAtPr ltMflf in
conduct the electricity acrow. An experiment wa? jRt(
made eoon after at Washington, on the canal, with an,
aucceaa; and a aeries of experiments, made laat fall, (
developed the law governing the passage of the elec- rej
t entity. tac
The conditions of this law are, that electricity ^
creaeee the river, and in quantity in proportion to pjp
the s'tfe of the plates in the water. The distance
of the plates on the same side of the river
from each other, also affects the result. The exCrimenta
made were hut a abort distance, in which,
wever, the principle was foliar proved to be cor- '
raet. It hee been applied, under the directione of riv
Maasra. Vail and Rogers, across the Susquehanna thr
rirer, at Havre de Grace, with complete aucceaa, a pn
distance of nsarly a mile? I'kil. Daily Ktytlont.

LATER FROM MEXICO.
If the arrival yesterday of the schooner Yu call,
from Vera Cruz, we have received full hies of
iers to the 21st from that city, and to the 17th
n the city of Mexico.
ieneral Almonte had arrived at Vera Cruz, but
I not gone ou to the capital when the Yucatana
There were at Vera Cruz four American, two
uiish, one English, and one French, men-of-war.
The joint committee of the Mexican Congress, to
icli hud been referred the subject of Texas, rated
at length on the 7th instant. The report is
Dcument marked with the usual characteristics of ,
xican verbosity, prolixity, and bombast. It
tses the United States in choice Castilian, and
Is us many hard names, comparing the governnt
at Washington to ancient Rome, which, in
name of liberty and republicanism, subjugated
world. After many brave words about outed
rights, honor, Mexican courage, and the like,
reports conclude by recommending two projects.
The first is precedetl by a preamble, declaring that,
ereas the United States have resolved to annex
territory of Texas: and whereas such a mode
appropriating foreign territory to which other
ions lay claim is a monstrous innovation upon
peace of the world and the sovereignty of other
vers: and whereas this act had long been in
Iteration, even while the United States were
fessing peace and (Viendehip for Mexico, and
ile the latter respected and observed scrupulously
terms of existing treaties between the two couns:
and whereas tha said annexation is a violai
of every conservative principle of society, an
suit upon the rights of Mexico, an insult to her
nity as a sovereign nation, and menaces her indedence
and political existence, therefore, the Conns
of the Mexican republic solemnly declare, that
law of the United States for the annexation of
taa to the American Union, in no respect impairs
rights which Mexico possesses and will raaini
to that department.
furthermore, that the United States having disreded
the principles upon which are based treaties
unity, commerce, and navigation, and more espe
ly ot Dounaary, tyongresa consiucre mem tiuibby
the United State*.
Lnd finally, that the unjust usurpation of which
i sought to make Mexico the victim, makes it
duty to take up arm* in her defence, to oppose
h usurpation, and with the fall and rightful damnation
to use all her resources and power to
vent |the annexation decreed by the United
tea.
["he second consists of four articles, which are as
OWSt
First. The Mexican nation calls upon har sons to defend
r national iDdepFuueiice, inreaonea oy me uaurpauun
lie territory of Texas, which it (ought to be conaummaby
a decree panol by Congreaa and aanctioned by the
ident of the United U atei.
Second. Therefore the gore nment will comider itself at
rty {jiodra poner) to call forth ita entire permanent and
ae military force, agreeably to the authority given to it
exiating lawn.
Third. For the pi-enervation of public order, and the
ntenance of her institutions, and, if neceaaary, aa a rere
forthe army, the government, in virtue of the power
nted to it on tne 8th of December, 1844. may levy the
ipa to which aaid decree refera, under the name of de(era
of Independence and the lawa.
Fourth. With a view to the efficient maintenance or the
ita of the republic, the government ia authorized to proe
all extraordinary reaourcea which may be deemed notary,
making known to Congreaa the neceaaary atepa to
aken, conformably to the constitution.

rhe public journals are still excessively bellicose;
I, from what we can perceive, there is a very
ing indisposition on the part of the government
surrender Texas. Still, though Mexico may
ster, and even declare war, it will be mere child's
y. She is utterly destitute of resources?witha
dollar in her treasury?with a disaffected and
contented population, ripe for another revolution
ind a disorderly soldiery, ill paid, ill fed, and ill
d, who have already, we are credibly informed,
Monterey and elsewhere, exhibited strong sympts
of mutiny. We publish, therefore,* the above
vnacious manifesto, rather as a part of the hisy
of the times, than because we apprehend anyng
very serious from its high-sounding phraaeol/.
The only way in which Mexico can annoy
is by crippling onr commerce in the gulf; ana
this it behooves our government to be prepared.
Vmotiibr Earthquake.?Our readers doubtless
iember the details we published a few days since
t frightfully destructive earthquake which was ex-ienced
st Mexico on the 7th inst. We have now
add a repetition of this awful disaster in the oapion
the 10th inst. Our examination of the papers
i failed to enable us to discover many details of
i amount of ruin and desolation occasioned by
convulsion; but from the fact that the journals
ite in describing its effects as terrific, we presume
i destruction must have been great. The Diario
the 11th states that the earthnuake occurred about
o'clock, a. m., and lasted forty seconds; that it
srthrew many new buildings and many others
it had escaped the former visitation; that most of
: inhabitants, stricken with terror, left their houses
I took refuge in the open fields and public squares,
isingthe night without shelter and in the utmost
isternation. The "Veracruzano" of the 14th
tant, states that private letters furnish a gloomy
lure of the desolation that has fallen upon MexiThe
"Hesperia" of the 12th states that the
thquake of the 10th completed the destruction of
cupolu of Santa Teresa, and increased the dami
done to the churches of Santo Domingo and
t Francisco. But for the shortness of its dural,
the entire city would have been laid in ruins,
ixico did not suffer alone. The shock was felt
i number of towns and villages within a radius
everal hundred miles. At Puebla the earthquake
experienced on the 7th, about 4 o'clock, p. m.,
, its effects were comparatively slight. Several
irehee were injured, and many private edifices
re greatly damaged; though none were absolutely
troyed.
It Acuartillo and Toluca the effects of the shock
re more considerable. At Guadalajara, Morelia.
I Vera Cruz, the earthquake was experienced
h on the 7th and 10th, but on neither occasion
s the injury very serious.
IVe perceive that the agency for the payment of
Mexican debt to Great Britain has been taken
m the house of Lizardi in London, and transferto
Schneider & Co. The Ditx XIX applauds
acr, declared that Messrs. Lizardi sacrificed the
jrest and credit of Mexico to their avarice and
rit of speculation, and considers their removal an
of justice and propriety.

MATAM0RA8.
rhe steam schooner Augusta, Captain Gillitt, ared
at- this port late the evening before last, in
ee days from Matamorns. She brought no pars.
From a gentleman who came passenger in
i Augusta, we learn that before he left Matamoi,
news had been received there that the Mexican
ngresa were considering a bill to close the porta of
it country against all American vessels. As it
is known that a large majority of the Congress was
favor of hostile measures towards this country, it
presumed that the bill has ere this become a law,
it has not already gone into operation. Troops
ire being sent to the mouths of the Braeos, Santit>,
and del Norte, under ths direction of General
ista, commander-in-chief of the northern forces.
?out 3,500 troops were stated to be at Monterey,
is possible this news may be unfounded ; for in
i present precarious state of our relations with

LATER FROM CHINA.
The ship Helena, Captain Benjamin, from Cani,
37th January, arrived yesterday. She brings
ven days later.
The Helena left this port the 9th of June for Coimbo
and Callao, ana arrived at Canton previous
January 13. On her way to Valparaiso she put
to Rio Janeiro to effect some necessary repairs to
r foremost, having sprung it at sea in a heavy

Honokono, Jan. 33, 1845.?Her Majesty's Ship
eetal. Captain Talbot, returned to port yesterday,
is brought from Whampoa another instalment of
e indemnity money, amounting, we hear, to three
illions of dollars. The money has been paid in
reee, now at a premium of from 5 to 6 per cent, in
ilia, so that John Bull will pocket something like
10,000 by the transaction.
There are various statements as to the ultimate
stinalion of this valuable freight. We think it
ost probable that one of the small frigates now in
e harbor will carry pott to Singapore, to be shipd
by her Majesty's ship Onmbrian to England,
d the other moiety will be taken to India and
ought back in rupees. It is rumored that the
jincourt will carry the specie u> Singaporte; but
s can scarcely believe that such a large ahip will be
tployed on this service.

from s ClrcuUrJoi tbelBsptiit Missiou in China. n
"In our last annual letter we mentioned that we
were encouraged to believe that the Spirit of the
Lord was at work with a number of hearts among
this great heathen people, who had been for some
time under the regular preaching of the Gospel in
their own language. Our hopes have been more ul
than realized, and eighteen Chinese have been al
baptized during the year, upon a profession of their
faith in Christ. Ail these were received into the
church after repeated and careful examinations, both
private and public. Some of them are men of high
attainments in their own literature, and have already
proved of great usefulness to the mission. Of these
eighteen, only one, and he the least promising, has 01
been excluded from the church, while all the others r<
give evidence of holding on to their profession. We
now have between twenty or thirty cases of interest- "
ing inquiry, atTording more or less encouragement.
"We have thirteen native preachers daily at work ?
at Hongkong and the neighboring towns and villages
on this and other islands, ana also on the inaiu- w
fund, preaching the gospel, and scattering far and ,
near tens of thousands or Christian books and tracts.
The truths of the gospel are evidently spreading and 0
taking hold of the minds of multitudes all around
us. Our Chinese Sabbath congregations at the chap- 7
els are remarkably attentive, and sometimes crowded b
to excess."
The mandarins of Rowloon had granted the mis- c
sionariee the undisturbed use of two of the temples h
of idolatry in town for a dispensary, rent free, and h
at the same time granted full permission to preach y
the Gospel and distribute tracts, which privileges
they had availed themselves of with great effect. a
There has been much less sickness in the colony J
during the past year than duiing 1843; and many h
improvements, such as drains, roads, Ac., are in c
progress, and which are calculated greatly to benefit
the health of the place. a
A8HINGTON CITY DYING E8TAB- tl
LISHMENT.?P. Wheatlet, of George- ti
town, would most respectfully inform the citizens 8
of Washington and vicinity that he has taken the t<
stand at the corner of 11th street and Pennsylvania l!
avenue, south side, formerly occupied by J. Berk- tl
ley, where he invites his old customers, and as
many new ones as may be pleased to try nts skiii in a
the art of dying silk, woollen, and cotton goods, and E
cloth dressing. The preference which has been E
given him by a large portion of the citizens of
Washington, in carrying their work to Georgetown, I
has induced him, for the convenienceofthe public,und F
with a view to enlarge his business, and by an ezhi- F
bition of superior work to extend his reputation, to
take a stand in the metropolis, where he is prepared
to receive and execute all manner of ladies'and gentlemen's
apparel in a superior stile. Shawls of 1
every material and texture cleansed, bleached, or
dyeu, and the border preserved.
He conceives it unnecessary further to commend
himsolf to the public, as he has long been known P
and extensively patronized from every part of the
country. He has lately built and fitted up an exten- '<
sive and complete dye-house, and is prepared to do
all kinds of work with despatch, and in a style not sl
to be surpassed in this country. He especially calls a
the attention of gentlemen to the superior manner in e
which coats and pants, and gentlemen's apparel
generally, are done. The shape and set of the ooat
are not in the slightest degree injured; and the color
is warranted to stand, and not in the least to rub.
All kinds of work will be thankfully received, and
done on moderate terms.
N. B.?The present is the best season for cleans- 11
ing and dying curtains; and he would call the alien- ''
tion of botrding-house keepers, tavern-keepers, and n
others having curtains to cleanse or color, to the
present, as a more propitious time than the fall. 11
The work can be done better in good weather; and e
there is less hurry in summer. May 6?dim* "

MEDICAL DEPARTMENT.
The plan of instruction in this department ol
lie University presents peculiarities to be found
n no other School of Medicine in the Union. The
ectures commence on the 1st ol October, and terminate
on the 4th of July ensuing.
Owing to the length of the session, which emraces
a period of nine months, three Professors are
nabled to perform all the duties which in other
nedical institutions are usually assigned to six;
nd the students are seldom required to attend more
ban two lectures on the same day. By tiiis arangemeut,
the students have an opportunity of beng
well grounded in Anatomy, Physiology, and
ither elementary branches of Medical Science, beore
they investigate their applications in connexnn
with the study of the practice of Medicine and
lurgery.
Immediately before each lecture, the students are
objected to a full and rigid examination on the
ireceding lecture, or on portions of approved textooks.
It is apparent that the plan, of which the
lutlines have been briedy stated, is one which alows
the student to commence as well as to comilete
his medical studies in the institution; and preents
a happy combination of the advantages of the
ystem of instruction by pi ivale pupilage and thai
if public lectures.
Any person of approved moral conduct may
ifl'er as a candidate, and receive the degree ol
II. D., without reference to the time be has beer
-ngaged in the study ol medicine, or of joining the
cliool, provided he undergoes, in a satisfactory
nanner, trie various examinations presci ined oy ine
nactmrnts.
The Professors are:
Robert E. Rogers, M. D.. Professor of Chemistry
'harmacy, and Materia Medica.
Henry Howard, M. D., Professor of Pathologj
:nd Practice of Medicine, Obstetrics, and Medica
urisprudence.
James L. Cabell, M. D., Professor of Anatomy
'hysiology, and 8urgery.

ST. MARY'S HALL.?In approaching the cloat
of the eighth year of this institution, the Bishop

lepartment will be made; and nothing spared tha
aithful labors or that fervent prayers can do, t<
nake it moat effectual, with His blessing, as a nur
lery of the church, to train up Christian women.
The regular course of instruction at St. Mary'i
Sail will include a primary department, and a Junior
t Middle, and a Senior Class. The studies of eacl
if the three classes will occupy one year. Appli

|*/TRS. FLIE8CHMAN has the honor to ani
JVJL nounce to the citizens of Washington and
i Georgetown that she has engaged the invaluable
services of MADAME KORPONAY as instruct,
reaa in her establishment.
The departments to which Madame Korponav
i shall chiefly devote her attention are Jlfuric and /tsif
ion and German Literature. The miscellaneous edt
ucation pf Madame K. most peculiarly qualifies her
1 for the successful discharge of those interesting du>
ties. A nativp of Italy, any is intimately conversant <

r cent or Florence: a German by descent, as well as
' education, the beautifbl, expressive dialect of liar
maternal parent is alike familiar to her. Indeed,
t both those fashionable languages are spoken ana
' written by Madame Korponay with thepurity of a
native ana the accuracy of a scholar. Her distinction,
also, as a musician, is not inferior to her ao
" compliahmenta as a linguist?having completed her
* musical education under the celebrated Thalberg,
with whom she was a favorite pupil.
