MRS. DAVID H. BURR'S
jPbrtiWi and English seminary for Young Ladies, corner
r of E and Qth streets, Washington city.
rpHEJocnlion of this seminary is one of the moat
I A desirable in the city, on account of its healthy
mid airy position. The house is large and cnrnmodioua,
with ample grounds and other facilities for
amusement and recreation. The principal, so well
and favorably known in this city, and in New
York, from her long experience in teaching, hones
to give entire satisfaction to all who may confide
their daughters to her rare. She is a native of
France, and familiar with its language and literature,
and conversant with the best and easiest modes
of imparting to her pupils a perfect knowledge of
that language, eo that they can not only read and
write, but speak it fluently. She has secured able
asrislants for various departments, so that all
branches of an English es well as French education
will be thoroughly taught. Pupils who reside in
the family have the peculiar advantages of hearing,
und 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 sem
inarirs. The discipline is mild and affectionate, yet
decided, and is maintained by appeals to the affections
and conscience of the pupil; it is designed, by a
proper development and cultivation of the better
qualities of the heart, to bind more affectionately the
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 is
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. The
charges to those who reside in the family are, for
board and tuition in all the branches of French and
English, $200 per annum for a single pupil; but
when two or more are entered at the same time, a
liberal deduction will be made. The additional
charges per quarter are for music, piano, and guitar,
$15; use of instrument, $2 50; vocal music, *5. To
day scholars, the charges for tuition in ine first
department in French or English, are $10;
together, $15; in the second department first
class French or English, $8; together, $12; in
the second class French or English $7; together
$10.; in the third department, first class, f rench
or English $6; together $9; in the second1
class, French or English $5; together $b; Latin $4,
other languages, drawing, painting, and dancing; i
at professor's charges. Pupils can be entered at any
time, and will be charged only from the date of their
entiance. No deduction will be made to those who
absent themselves after commencing a quarter, unless
prevented from attending by sickness. Bills in
all cases to be paid in advance. Every attention is
paid to the religious as well as moral and Intellectual
instructions of the Duoils. but no sectarian neculinri
ties are ever inculcated. Thloae residing in the family
will attend such churches as their parents may
sel set, under the care of a teacher. They will attend
the Episcopal church with the Principal, when
no other directions are given. Any other information,
and the most satisfactory references! will be
given on application to the principal.
To mail contractors, apjilicavts for the appointnxenl of
Postmasters, Sfc., &fc.
THE undersigned having been associated with
the General Post Office Department for more
than twenty years, and being perfectly familiar with
its details of business, now offers his services to such
of his old friends the contractors, as may be disposed
to patronize him, to transact any business which
they may have from time to time with the department,
and on such terms as will not fail to be acceptable
to them. A letter to him at any time, post
paid, will Ire promptly attended to.
To applicants for the appointment of postmasters,
he will, upon the remission of a fee of $5,
postage paid, see that their petitions or recommendations
are received and on file at the department^ or, if
not, give them due notice thereof, and also give attention
to their interests until the decision of the
Postmaster General is made, and then notify them
of the result, be it favorable or adverse. It must be
certainly no small satisfaction, after the trouble of
procuring such testimonials, to be assured that they
have been duly received and brought to the notice
of the appointing power. To such as may favor
him in this particular branch of his agency, he cannot
fail to give entire satisfaction.
The undersigned will also attend to any claims or
other buainass which may be intrusted to his care
and supervision, before any of the departments of
the general government.
