Opposite President's Square, I street, Washington,
(house of Col. Bomford, between
the residences of Mrs. Gen. Macomb and
Commodore Morris.) <
MISS HEANEY, of Boston, Massachusetts,
Principal Instructress, respectfully invites the
attention of her friends, and parents and guardians
interested, to the re-establishment of her Academy,
hoping in their favor for the early entrance of the
boarding and day scholars she may receive, and for
whom every arrangement is made to insure, by her
own unremitted attention, thorough instruction, and
improvement in elementary and elevated learning,
with the beet advantages of residence.
Mies H.'s Academy, being so eligibly placed in
the quiet neighborhood of many well-known families
near the President's House and the Departments,
in the family residence many years of Col. Bomford,
spacious and convenient, with its large garden
and pleasant scenery, is esteemed the most desirable
in the vicinity for the charge. Miss H. resumes the
useful and liberal education of young ladies.
Employing her best abilities to make her Academy
permanent in this community, and encouraged
to trust that her task will ere long be favored by the |
support it bespeaks, resident instructresses and other |
professors of the highest skill and character will al '
ways be engaged for any required aid; while Miss J
Heaney, as Principal, will instruct her pupils individually
in whatever pursuits of learning or accom- J
plishmenta they may engage. ;
The government of these young ladies will be J
that of home education of daughters, of her early
study and much experience in Miss HeAtiey's
charge of pupils in Boston, Washington, and elsewhere;
simply for the best individual improvement
of the talents, moral and mental culture of such .
youth; regulations and order prescribed for them in
this family mode of living, as of tuition, study, em- ployment,
and recreation, those only which are due 8
to insure the entire welfare of daughters by mater- ?
nal education and care. '
Young ladies may thus be residents in Miss Hea- 8
ney's Academy, having instruction for any acquire- 8
mcnts desired, exclusive of others, and may have
that leisure and intercourse with society, to which 8
the attention of parents, guardians, or Miss Hea- 8
nev, may be duly given. t *
Morning exercises of instruction in the English
and French texts alternately, reading, elocution, c
grammar, composition, geography, history, belles 1
lettrea, arithmetic, &c., including plain ana elegant e
penmanship, linear drawing of maps, dbc., elements ^
of music in singing, and the primary exercises of 8
dancing, especially these most improving the demeanor
and health of the young.
Introductory class, $6; junior, $8; senior, ?10- I
Tuition in the Latin, Italian, and other languages,
may be given per auarter. f
Music, vocal and instrumental, $10, $12, or *15,

colors, flowers, landscapes, heads, portrait and miniature,
as above.
Dancing tuition at professor's lessons, $6.

ceptable to them. A letter to him at any time, post

'VencA and English seminary for Young Ladies, corner
of ? and 9Ih streets, Washington cite.
rHE location of this seminary is one of the most
desirable in the city, on account of its healthy U
nd airy position. The house is large and commoious,
with ample grounds and other facilities for
musement and recreation. The principal, so well ' 0
nd favorably known in this city, and in New
fork, from her long experience in teaching, hopes '
3 give entire satisfaction to all who may confide *
heir daughters to her care. She is a native of "V
'ranee, and familiar with its language and liters- 1U"
ore, and conversant with the best and easiest modes wnl
f imparting to her pupils a perfect knowledge of n,U!
fiat language, so that they con not only read and stor
rrite, but speak it fluently. She has secured able nvei
sristants for various departments, so that all fV~~
ranches of an English as well as French education Ject
rill lie thoroughly taught. Pupils who reside in "l*1
he family have the peculiar advantages of hearing,
nd conversing at all times in the French language, feel
nd of perfecung themselves in the science of music,
eing under the surveillance of an experienced wel
sacher. The course of instruction, besides the Per.
sual elementary branches, includes all the higher
tudies pursued in the most approved northern sem- .
laries. 1 he discipline is mild and anecuonate, yet
ecided, and is maintained by appeals to the anec- ""lions
and conscience of the pupil; it is designed, by a P?r
roper development and cultivation of the better tt<
utilities of the heart, to bind more affectionately the <-'?a
iupil to her teacher, and by it to secure obedience. . 0
is sound physical, moral, and intellectual improve- "HL
(lent and culture, are the great objects desired, it is *
be aim of the principal not so much to crowd the an"
memory with words, as to draw forth and train the 'we
ystematic and vigorous action, the observing, reecting,
und active powers of the mind. The *,en
harges to those who reside in the family are, for "ot
oard and tuition in all the branches of French and ?1u
English, $200 per annum for a single pupil; but 'a<*
/hen two or more are entered at the same time, u enjj

an(j cloth dressing. The preference which has been
given him by a large portion of the citizens of

an(j with a view to enlarge his business, and by an exhiwjH
bition of superior work to extend his reputation, to
take a stand in the metropolis, where he is prepared
or to receive and execute all manner of ladies'ana gen|
tlemen's apparel in a superior stile. Shawls of
every material and texture cleansed, bleached, or
dyea, and the border preserved.
He oonceives it unnecessary further to commend
, himself to the public, as he has long been known
and extensively patronized from every part of the
country. He has lately built and fitted up an extensive
and complete dye-house, and is prepared to do
, all kinds of work with despatch, ana in a style not
ins 10 k* urPM*e^ 'n tb'* country. He especially calls
' * the attention of gentlemen to the superior manner in
which coats and pants, and gentlemen's apparel
generally, are done. The shape and set of the coat

i? warranted to atand, ana not in the least to rub.
All kind* of work will be thankfully received, and
done on moderate term*.
N. B?The preaent is the beat season for cleansing
and dying curtains; and he would call the attention
of boarding-house keepers, tavern-keepers, end
