Commodore Morris.)
MISS HEANEY, of Buxton, Massachusetts,
Principal Instructress, respectfully invites the
attention of ner friends, and parents and guardians
interested, to the re-establishment of her Academy,
hoping in their favor for the early entrance of the
hoarding 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.
Miss 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
jiermaiient in this community, and encouraged
in frtiQt tlmt bnr fnalr u/?ll s?i-a Innir Ka Atttivrnd litr I La
support it bespeaks, resident instructresses and other
professors of the highest skill and character will a!
ways be engaged for any required aid; while Miss
Henney, as Principal, will instruct her pupils individually
in whatever pursuits of learning or accomplishments
they may fngage.
The government of these young ladies will be
that of home education of daughters, of her early
study and much experience in Miss Heaney'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 fumily mode of living, us of tuition, study, employment,
and recreation, those only which arc due
to insure the entire welfare of daughters by maternal
education and care.
Young ladies may thus be residents in Miss Heaney's
Academy, having instruction for any acquirements
desired, exclusive of others, and may have
that leisure and intercourse with society, to which
the attention of parents, guardians, or Miss Heaney,
may be duly given.
Morning exercises of instruction in the English
and French texts alternately, reading, elocution,
grammar, composiiion, geography, history, belles
leares, arithmetic, &e., including plain and elegant
penmanship, linear drawing of maps, Ac., elements
or music in singing, and the primary exercises of
i.uncing, especially these most improving the demeanor
and health of the young.

cepting for hemp fully prepared for spinning, and

es will be ready to give all information, in their power,
en to enable contractors to have their hemp properly

WASHINGTON CITY DYING ESTABLISHMENT?
F. Wiieatlet, of Georgetown,
would most respectfully inform the citizens
of Washington and vicinity that he has taken the

avenue, south side, formerly occupied by J. Berkley,
where he invites his old customers, and as
many new ones as may be pleased to try his skill in
the art of dying silk, woollen, and cotton goods, and
cloth dressing. The preference which has been
given him by a large portion of the citizens of
Washington, in carrying their work to Georgetown,
has induced him, for the convenience of the public, and
with a view to enlarge his business, and by an exhibition
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
every material and texture cleansed, bleached, or
dyeu, and the border preserved.
He conceives 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
end complete dye-house, and is prepared to do
all kinds of work with despatch, and in a style not
to be surpassed in una country, ne especially cans
tiie 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
arc 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 cleansing
and dying curtains; and he would call the attention
of boarding-house keepers, tavern-keepers, and
others having curtains to cleanse or color, to the
present, as a more propitious time than the fall.
The work can he done better in good weather; and
there is leas hurry in summer. May 6?dim*
