DEMOCRATIC REVIEW. ,
OREATI.Y REDUCED PRICE-FROM TO *3 PER ,
ANNUM.
single cott, twenty-vive cents. (
PROSPECTUS OF THE SEVENTEENTH VOLUME. J
THE price of the Democratic Review has j
heretofore been too high?not for its size, cost, |
and character, but for the means of tens of thousands
of readers who would be glad to receive it, |
and among whom it is highly desirable that it <
should circulate. For the purpose, therefore, of ,
largely widening the range of its usefulness, and of ,
multiplying the numbers of those to whom it may <
be accessible, it has been determined, simultaneous- i
ly with the great reduction in the expense of the
postage, to reduce its subscription price also, from ,
fire to only three dollars; and when several unite ,
in subscription, to as low as fS 50, or even to |2 30 t
per annum. I
This very large reduction in the receipts (accompanied
with but a comparatively small diminution \
of its expenses) involves, of course, an entire sacri- ,
fiee of profit upon it, unless compensated by a vast <
multiplication of its subscribers. There will be at |
the outset only a small reduction in its number of
pages; soon to be restored to its old number, without
increase of price, when the anticipated success
of the experiment shall justify it.
The ptWaits of distinguished democrats will be
continued, engraved in Deuer ana more cosny siyic i
than heretofore. ]
The postage will hereafter, for any distance, be i
only Jive and a half cents; it has heretofore been, for ]
over 100 miles, eighteen cents. i
Wo look for an extension of circulation to be I
reckoned by lens q/' thousand*, as the result and compensation
of this great reduction of price. Every <
friend of the work, and of the democratic principles i
and cause, is confidently appealed to, to exert him- I
self with an active interest to procure it subscribers; i
both to extend its usefulness, and to carrv it sue- I
cessfully through the crisis of this great reduction of i
its receipts.
Those who have paid in advance for the coming I
year, will receive it, at the reduced rate, for a year
and a half.

Four copies, 11 00 | Thirteen copies,.. 30 00
It will thus be seen, that when thirteen copies are
ordered at once, the price is brought down to alrout j
10 each. For six months, half these rates. |
These rules afford high inducements to agents
and others to interest themselves to procure, subscribers.
r
The cash system and pat/m nt in advance must be ^
uncompromisingly adhered to. The past relaxation
of it has caused an accumulation or not far from
$40,000 of debts due to the work. Hereafter, this
must be wholly reformed; nor must either the most J
eminent political friend, or the most intimate personal '
one, be displeased on experiencing its application,
in the stoppage of l heir numbers, if they neglect '
this rule; the vital necessity of which, at the prea- '
ent reduced rates, must be obvious to all.
No communications will be taken from the post
office unless free of postage.
All communications, both on editorial and publishing
business, must be addressed henceforward to
I he undersigned. Those relating to the settlement i
of the past debts due the work will be anil addressed
to Mr. H. Q. Langley, 8 Ador house, the past ar- 1

their termination.

fork, from her long experience in teaching, hopes
o give entire satisfaction to all who may connde
heir daughters to her care. She is a native of
France, and familiar with its language and literaure,
and conversant with the beRt and easiest modes

he aim of the principal not so much to crowd the
nemory with words, as to draw forth and train the
lystematic and vigorous action, the observing, re
lecting, and active powers of the mind. The
ihargrs to those who reside in the family are, for
>oarti and tuition in all the branches of French and
English, $3(10 per annum for a single pupil; but
vhen two or more are entered at the same time, a

are ever inculcated. Those residing in the famly
will attend such churches as their parents may
lei :ct, under the care of a teacher. They will atend
the Episcopal church with the Principal, when
to other directions are given. Any other informaion,
and the most satisfactory references will be

Frederick white sulphur springs
?situated six miles east of Winchester, Vs.,
and one mile and a half from Stephenson's depot,
on the Winchester and Potomac railroad?are now
open for the reception of company.
This water is inferior to none in the State, as it
holds in solution sulphureted hydrogen, iodine, and
magnesia, imparting tone to the system, and acting
as a powerful alterative, as numerous visiters can
testify, having been visited for the last fitly years,
and, had it not been for its contracted accommodations,
must hove been among the first watering
places in the Union. For the last five years, the
improvements liave been increased so as to accommodate
between two and three hundred visiters.
The proprietor hna endeavored to put this watering
place on a footing with the most tushionubleand
comfortable places of the sort, in a plain style, and
will use every exertion in his power to make his
visiters comfortable.
It is easy of access for all the Atlantic cities. Persons
leaving Baltimore in the morning cars will arrive
at the depot at 3 o'clock the same day, where a
coach will be in readiness to take them immediately
to the springs.
The proprietor feels thankful for the encouragement
he has received from the public, and will use
every exertion to merit a continuance of it, by making
those comfortable who may give him a call.

delay incident to the formation of new . Classen, and
especially to the examination and proper disposition

have been formally resumed, parents are earnestly
requested lo send (heir sons as early as possible in
the week preceding the first day of September. A
daily attendance by the pupila during this week, of
from two to three hours, will greatly facilitate future

University of Paris, and a teacher of experience.
This gentleman will also give instruction in drawing

accomplishments, may be seen at the residence of
the subscriber, corner of J8th and 1 streets.

of the principal, of winch Professor Dovilliers
will be a member, and in which, as far as practicable,
the French language will be the medium of conversational
intercourse.
Parents residing beyond the limits of the city,
either within the District or elsewhere, who
may desire for their sons an opportunity of
enjoying, in the prosecution of their studies, the singular
advantages peculiar to the metropolis for developing
and stimulating the intellectual powers, as
well as for acquiring varied useful information, may
be made acquainted with the character of the High
School by consulting any of the gentlemen whose
names are appended, and of whom all (except those
