Rrrra./i "nil English snniuaryfor Voting IaiiUcs, corner
of E aiul 9/fc streets, Washington city.
THE location of this seminary is one of llie most
desirable in the city, on account of its healthy
and airy position. The house is large and commodious,
with ample grounds and other facilities for
amusement and recreation. The principal, so well
and favorably known in thia city, and in New
York, from her long experience in leaching, hopes
to give entire satisfaction to all who may confide
their daughters to her care. She is a native of
Frnuce, und familial' with its language and literature,
and conversant with the best und easiest modes
of imparting to her pupils u perfect knowledge of
that language, so that they can not only read and
write, but speak it fluently. She has secured able
asristants for various departments, so that nil
brandies of an English as well us French education
will be thoroughly tuught. Pupils who reside in
the family have the peculiar advantages of hearing,
and conversing ut ull times in the French lunguuge,
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 brunches, includes all the higher
Btudies pursued in the most approved northern stm
inaries. Tlir discipline is mild and affectionate, yet
decided, and in 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.
Ah sound physical, moral, and intellectual improvement
and culture, arc 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 he 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 the first
department in French or English, are $10;
together, $15; in the second department first
class French or English, $8; together, $12; in
the Becond class French or English $7; together
$10, in the third department, first class, Krcnch
or English $G; together $9; i i the second
rluss, French or English $5; together $8; Latin $4,
other languages, druwing, painting, und dancing;
at professor's charges. Pupils can he entered at any
time, and will be charged only from the date of their
rntiance. No deduction will be made to those who
absent themselves after commencing a quarter, unless
prevented from attending by sickness. Bills in
all i uses to be paid in advance. Every attention is
paid to the religious as well ns moral nnd 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
nebct, under the care of a teacher. They will attend'the
Episcopal church with the Principal, when
no other directions are given. Any other informaion,
and the most satisfactory references will be
'iten on application to the principal.

SEALED PROPOSALS (endorsed proposals for

31st day of May next, tor furnishing and delivering
l- at the navy-yard, Charlestown, Massachusetts, on
h or before uie first day of July, 1846, four hundred
ig tons of water-rotted hemp.
r- This hemp must be equal to the Riga Rein hump
s, now at the navy-yard, Charlestown. In deciding
upon offers, preference will be given to American
hemp, if offered at equal or lower price than may be
usked for foreign hemp. The hemp must be subject
to inspection and approval at the novv-yard,
>f Charlestown, Massachusetts, by persons to De ap*
pointed, by and under instructions from this Hu*'
ieuu, and none will be received which shall not
>f pass such inspection.
Persons who may wish to furnish hemp perfectly
>f free front tow, and ready for spinning, can forward
i- separate proposals lor sucn nemp; wnicn ncinp, it
>t the proposals should be accepted, must, like the other,
be subject to inspection and approval at said
li navy-yard before it will be received,
s Persons making offers must state the price asked
i- per ton of 2,240 pounds, delivered at said navyyard,
and must forward with them an obligation
r from two persons of sufficient property to become
e sureties for the fulfilment of the contract to be ens
tered into, in one-third the amount of said contract.
To diminish the hazard to contractors of forward>f
ing hemp from the western States, which may not
i, be of proper quality, or sufficiently well prepured,
0 the Secretary of the Navy has appointed two agents,
g who will, when requested, inspect hemp that may
be prepared and intended to fulfil contracts to be made
1 under this advertisement. One of these agents will
I, inspect the hemp that may be sent to Louisville,
s Kentucky, and die other that which may be sen
to St. Louis, in Missouri. These agents will be
e furnished with samples of the Riga Rein hemp, exd
cepting for hemp fully prepared for spinning, and
>- with the means of testing the strength of hemp, and
II will be ready to give all information in their power,
e to enable contractors to have their hemp properly
e prepared, and to ascertain the strength and characd
ter of it, before the expense of sending it to the nad
vy-yard is incurred. It must be distinctly undere
stood, however, diat the inspection and opinion of
r these agents is merely to diminish the risk to contractors,
by furnishing useful information. The ont
ly inspection by which the hemp can be finally rei;
ceiveu and paid for will be that at the navy-yard
t; where it is to be delivered.
i- In addition to the bonds which will be required
i, for the faithful performance of the contract, ten per
centum will be deducted from the amount of all bills
for deliveries, and retained until the completion of
"" the contract, as additional security for its performance.
The remaining ninety ;>er centum will be
paid within thirty days after bills, duly approved,
*' shull be presented to the navy agent at Boston,

the attention of gentlemen to the superior manner in
which coats and pants, and gentlemen's apparel

is warranted to stand, and not in the least to rub.

and dying curtains; and he would call the attention
of boarding-houae keepers, tavern-keepers, and
