the teacher to communicate instruction m eilti

admission into the Freshman class of the Uni

erence to the publication of the Faculty, are,
English Grammar Arithmeiic, and Geography,
Four Books of Coisar’s Gallig War; The Bu
colics of Virgil, and six hooks ot the A'.neid ;
Sallust, and several of Cicero’s Orations; Ja
cobs’ Greek Reader, and Latin Prosody. i
Particular attention is paid to Elementary
Principles; and Reading Writing, and Spell

Small hoys are not lobe considered as rxclil

has sent a number of students to this institution,
who, if not always perfectly prepared for admission,

justify. It is characteristic of him to state, with the
utmost frankness, to all whom it tnny concern, what
he believes t«» be the progress mode by the [upils

For llie Frluenlioii of flic Blind,
THIS 1 iiKtitu>ion commenced its second ses.
sioii the g"Ci>nH Monday in March, and
the operations of the Institution have been very
much embarrassed on account of (lie absence
of the regular agent, and the losses in subscrip
tions, &c. It gives us great pleasure to state
that the friends of the Institution have riot for
salien it, hut have liberally co-operated with
the Principal in liquidating its debt, and making
preparatory arrangements to commence the
second session. 1 he second session will end
the last ot July, allowing the pupils to spend
August and Sepremher at their homes. Ten
pupils will be instructed at present, and it is
believed the school will gradually increase as it
becomes more and more extensively known.
As this Institution is intended to embrace all
the branches taught in academies for seeing
persons, the Principal has engaged the ser
vices of teachers of experience and thoroughly
acquainted with all the branches in this In
stil ution.
Mr. T. S. NEWELL, a graduate of the
Ohio Institution for the lllind, will act as Pro
fessor ofVocnl and Insirumental Music.
Mr. II. CHAPIN, as Piofe3sor of the Arts
and Sciences.
Instruction will be given as soon as practi
cable, lo a aelect class by the Principal in
Ancient and Modern History, Literature, &c.
The Teachers just mentioned, devote their
services to the Institution at a very moderate
salary being actuated more by the interest they
feel for Hi.- blind, than any pecuniary consid
The following course of study and regulations
have been adopted lor the present session:
The Scholars are required lo rise at the
ringing of liic bell at half post 5 o’clock in the
Morning : from 6 to 7, instruction in Vocal
Music; breakfast at 7; prnyers immediately
after breakfast ; from that time till 8, the girls
are engaged in arranging the rooms; fiom
quarter past 8 lo quarter past 0, Arithmetic;
from half-past 9 to naif-past 10, English Gram
mat; three quarters past 10 to three quarters
pnst 11, reading til-- raised print ; from I'd to I
Geography and Writing; dine at 1. In the
Afiernnon the girls are engaged in learning to
make fancy works: instruction on I he, Piano, and
raised print nre attended to till 6 o'clock P. M.,
at which time the pupils take supper: prsyeis
immediately after supper. Pupils are expected
to attend church, and are taken to whatever
church they wish to attend in the city. From
2 to 4, on the sahhalh, the pupils will be as
sembled to hear reading of sacred history, or
a lecture from some interesting passage ol
scripture, calculated to direct their thoughts to
a perusal of the bible.
The Principal would here state tlmt the In
stitution is entirely dependent for support on
I individual contributions ; notwithstanding this,
if its patronage should be equate that received
during the last year, there will be no difficulty
til going on ; and ns our agent, whose family
has been ill, is expected soon, he will he re
quested to visit all the counties in the State,
for the purpose of laying the subject before
the citizens generally.
The cost to those who are able to pay will be
$150 per year; and as many indigent blind,
will be received and educated as the funds re
ceived will support, we request the editors of
the diHerent papers who may read lhis adver
tisement, to insert it in their columns.
The Principal of this Institution would be
obliged to persons having children or relatives
blind, to write immediately, staling the age,
capacity, circumstances, &c , wishing to re
ceive a situation.

Congressional Globe and Appen
Congress at its last session, through the
Joint Library Committee of the two Houses,
having authoriz'd a large subscription for the
Congressional Globe and Appeedix; and
the Senate, by resolution, having directed the
mode or preparing the reports of its proceedings,
and authorized the Secretary of the Senate to
contract with the undersigned, stipulating that
the reports when!written out shall be subject
to the revision of the speakers, the Conchies
fiiONAL (ilobe and Appendix is now offered
to the public, not only ns an authentic, but as an
official report of the proceedings of Congress,
made under the eye, and published by authority
of the body.
The undersigned originated the mode qf jour
nalizing the proceedings of Congress, which,
thus adopted, is to be perfected with the aid
and under the supervaion of Congress. Their
publication was the first and only one that gave
each successive step in every measure in both
branches of Congress ; a brief of a II the debates;
every important vote; and an Appendix, inclu
ding at full length all the revised speeches de
livered during the session.
The work, as it is now to he conducted by
them, will be found a most perfect political his
tory. The Senators from the States and the
Representatives from every section of the Union
bring with them into Congress a knowledge of
the feelings, sentiments, and interests of their
several constituencies. Public opinion and the
public information, as it exists among those
they represent, are embodied by them; and in
the crucible of Congress the wisdom of* our
times is brought to its test, and is there con
centrated, in directing the political movements
of the whole country. The impu'ses thus giv
en through Congress from every quarter react
upon the nation as a whole, and all its compo
nent parts are made to move in cooperation.
The press cannot be more usefully employed
than in condensing and again spreading abroad
the intelligence of our free country, tending to
such happy results through our almost miracu
lously adjusted Male and National institutions.
Having identified ourselves wit.li the plan of
advancing the usefulness of Congress by pub
lishing full arid impartial reports, and having a
large mass of the Conuhkssignal Globe am
Ari’HNDix, issued during the last twelve years,
which would lie impaired in value to 11s and
utility to the public if the work were discontin
ued, we have a double motive to prompt us to
extend it through a new series. We are re
solved, if possible, to give it permanence, and
to hand it down to successors ns a standard
work, worthy ofbeing maintained and improv
od. VVu shall enter upon our new undertaking
without being distracted or burdened by any
associate labors of the press; and, thus encum
bered, shall hope to make the new scries a step
in advance of the former in all points of execu
tion. With a view to accomplish this, we
shall be (one or the oilier) in attendance on Con
gress. •
The reports will not be affected by nnr party
bias. We believe every member of Congress
will bear witness that our reports are full and
The Congressional Globe is made np of the
daily proceedings of the t wo Houses of Congress,
and printed on auperhrie double royal paper,
with small type, (brevier and nonpareil,) in
quarto form, each number containing sixteen
roj al quarto pages. The speeches of the mem.
beis, in this first form, are condensed—the full
report of the prepared speeches being reserved
loi the Appendix. All resolutions,motions, and
other proceedings, are given in the form of the
Journals, with the yeas and nays on every im
portant question.
The Appendix is made up of the President’s
Annual Message, the reports of the principal of
ficers of the Government tlmt accompany it,
and all speeches of members of Congress writ
ten ou', or revised by themselves. It is printed
in the same form as the Congressional Globe,
and usually makes about the Bame number of
pages during a session.
During the first month or six weeks of a ses
sion, there is rarely more business'done than
will make two numbers a week—one of the
Congressional Globe and one of the Appendix ;
but during the remainder of a session, there is
usually sufficient matter for two or three num
bers of each every week. The next session will
be unusually interesting; therefore, we calcu
late that the Congressional Globe and Appen
dix together will make near 1500 large quarto
pages, printed in small type—brevier and non
pareil. We furnisli complete Indexes to both
at the end of a si asion.
VVe have on hand the Congressional Globe
and Appendix for the lost fifteen sessions of
Congress, making together fifteen large royal
quarto volumes, which wo will sell, unbound,
lor $41 ; nr bound, with Russia backs and corn
ers, for $50. Those who want the back vo umes
should apply for them immediately, ns they are
in demand. Congress subscribed for 341 com
plete sets during 111 a two lust sessions. The
proceedings of Congress fivr the last nine years
cannot be procured from any other source—
Gales & Seaton having stopped printing their
Register of Debates in 1“37.
VVe will endeavor to print a sufficient num
ber of surplus copies to 3tipply all that may be
miscarried, or lost in the mads; but, subscri
bers should be vety particular to file tin ir pa
pers carefullv, for f ar that we should dot be
able to supply all the lost numbers.

For one copy of tlie Appendix 1 0(1
For six copies of either, or part of bolh 5 00
The nuinty niny be remitted by mail at our
risk. The safest and best way to remit is, to
pay the amount to the Postmaster where you re
aide, and take from him a receipt, according to
the following fot in :
“Post Office,-,184 .
“Received from A B-dollars-cents
for the Globe, from which I have deducted one
per cent., and charged myself, in my account
with the General Post Office, with the balance.
The Postmaster of Washington city will pay

ton the back of this receipt,
“-, Postmaster.”
The rules ot the General Post Office Depart

paid here, when the ainnnnt does not exceed
#10. When it exceeds $10, it is best to remit
as much as possible in hank notes, and the Post

master’s receipt should be sent directed to uj,

To llic People.
The sP8Rion of Congress, which is about lo
tf rminate, will be iong and gratefully remem
bered by all true republicans for the triumphant
success of many of their cherished principles
and measures. While we heartily rejoice at
the triumph of the princip'es which it has been
our constant effort lo advocate and defend j
and from which no prosperity, no adversity, can
swerve us ; we cannot be unmindful of the at
litude in which we are placed by a recent vote
of both houses of Congres#:—we allude to the
contemplated wilbdrawal of their patronage
from the newspaper press. To this decision
we cheerfully bow, sensible as we are of the pa
triotic motives which have led to it. But we
trust that this decision of Congress increased
rather than diminishes our ciaiin to the support
of a hglier power—that of the people ; and to
them we confidently appeal to aid us, by llieir
patronage, in sustaining at the seat of govern
ment a journal that is inflexible devoted to their
interest and the true interesls of the country.
It is known to every one, that the chief source
of sustaining a newspaper is not the magnitude
of its subscription list, so much as the advertis
ing patronage which m^ybe bestowed upon It.
In large commercial cities, indeed, the latter is
usually the concomitant of the former, as it be
comes the obvious interest of mercantile men
to advertise in those papers which are the most
extensively circulated. Washington, however,
is differently situated. Depriving of the adver
tising patronage incident to a mercantile com
munity, and burdened with peculiar and enor
mous expenses which are not elsewhere incur
red, nothing but a very long list of subscribing
patrons can sustain a paper in usefulness—if,
indeed, even inexistence. The proprietors of
the "Union” have hitherto spared no pains, and
no expense, to make their paper worthy of the
metrop ,1 is, and worthy of the suppoit of that
great party under whose banner they ore enlist
ed. in publishing the most full and ample de
bates of the two homes of Congress, it is be
lieved, ever before attempted on this continent
in a daily newspaper, they have secured theser
vices or the best reporters winch the country
afforded, but at the enormous cost of $12,000 or
$15,000 per year. I'heir extensive foreign
and domestic correspondence is another large
item of expense, but the instructive usefulness
of which is so highly commended and apprecia
ted as to justify ulmost any outlay to attain it.
Still, it must be evident that these heavy expen
ses cannot be borne, unless the subscription list
is commensurate to the undertaking ; and al
though we can boast ot 15,000 subscribers, (in
cluding daily, tri weekly, and weekly,) vet this
list must be still considerably enlarged to enable
the proprietors of the “Union” to sustain all its
usefulness, and to insure them against pecuni
ary loss. Invoking, then, again, the aid and
support of all true friends of republican gov
ernment, and pledging ourselves to renewed
efforts iu the cause of the glorious principles
we cherish, we offer the following proposals :
Will be published, as heretofore, at $10 per
annum, payable in advance. Its character hith
erto lias been almost exclusively political. We
purpose in future to devote a portion ot its col
umns to domestic news of general interest, and
to miscellaneous literature, which, without im
paring its political influence, may render it the
more acceptable to an extended class of read
Will be published every Monday and Thurs
day, during the recess of Congress, at $5 per
annum. This contains all the matter contained
in the "Daily Union," except local advertise
ments. During the sessions of Congress three
numbers, instead of two, will be issued, without
any ex'ra charge to subscribers.
Tlic JGiilui-gcmciit of tbe Weekly
Is issued every Saturday ; and as arrange
ments are in progress to enlarge it to near dou
ble its present size, we shall soon be enabled to
give nearly svery article which may appear in
the daily and seini weekly editions, at the ex
tremely low rate of $2. We propose also to
give, in this edition, a complete synoptical sum
niary of the proceedings in both houses of Con
gress thus rendering the “Weekly Union, a
most valuable channel of information to all
classes of our country. But, to remunerate us
for this enterprise, an extensive subscription list
is absolutely indisperisible.
We seize this opportunity to add that some
delay has taken place in putting our paper to
press, which has prevented its early delivery to
our readers, and consequently circumscribed its
circulation. We shall make arrangements to
remedy Ibis defect-, and to obviate this objection.
After the present week we trust that no com
plaint will he made upon this subject.
In addition to the foregoing, we have resolved
to publish; during the session of the national
legislature, a "Congressional Register," to be
issued weekly, and to contain a full report
of tlie daily proceedings and debates of both
houses. Indeed, the arrangements which we
have made wiili the very best corps ot reporters
will enable us togive even more full and extend
ed reports tnan we have produced during this
session, superior as we claim them to be to any
preceding ones. The Register will be made up
from the daily reports in the “Union,” carefully
revised by an experienced editor, and will con
stitute a complete nnd authentic record of the
session. An appendix will be added, uniform
with the llegister, anil to be sent gratuitously
to subscribers, comprising a list of the acts
passed during tl|g session, with a synopsis ot
their contents, and a reference, when necessary,
to previous legislation. This will form the most
complete history of the sessions of Congress,
and will be furnished at the low price of sev
enty-five cents for the next session.

Vegetable Tonic and restorative
Health—“ The. poor man's riches
— The rich man's Hiss”
TIIE Pioprietor of this Medicine, actuated
by a desiru to benefit Ins fellow beings,
offers to the I’ublic the result of an extensive
practice and a thorough investigation uf the
laws which govern the human system.
He is well aware of the odium which is at
tached by Phj#cians to all remedies, the coin
position of which they are not acquainted with,
yet lie is not satisfied to withhold this valuable
medicine knowing that it will stand the test of
experience, and that those who use it, will not
have occasion to complain that it has not bone
fitted them. He is fully satisfied, tkut these
Bitters require only to become known, to be
universally appreciated and extensively used.
For it cannot tie denied by those who have be
come acquainted with their singular virtues,
that they possess a pre-eminence over all others
now in use, for the diseases which they profess
to cure.
In proof of their extraordinary curative pro
perties, upwards of Onb Thousand Cbrtif
icates, from the most respectable Citizens ia
different sections oftlie Union, might be appen
ded ; but the high reputation which my Vegeta
ble Pills, (known as Spencer’s Veoetabi.k
Pills; have acquired, is all sufficient to recom
mend my Bitters to the special notice of the
They are purely Vegetable and may^e tn
ken with perfect safety by all ages and sexes
in youthful, adult and declining life.
They Cure Dyspepsia and I-iver Com
plaints by cleansing the stomach and bowels
of every thing injurious to health, regulating
the various secretions ; and by their manifest
and sensible action upon the chyle, they purify
the blood, invigorate the circulation, strengthen
the digestive organs, and produce a healthy ac
tion, throughout the system ;—Loss of Appe
tite, Heartburn, Headache, Flatulency, Palpita
tion of the Heart, Restlessness, 111 Temper,
Languor and Melancholy, which ore the usual
symptoms of Dyspepsia and Liver Complaint,
will all disappear as a natural consequence ol
its cure.
They not only Cure HvsPErsia and Liver
Complaint, but they have almost a mirnculous
effect in curing Sick Headache, nnd iill Ner
vous Affections. They are peculiarly adapted
to remove all these complaints, not bv constant
ly pliysicing, bat by strengthen.ng the system.
No greater mistake can be made than to sup
pose that Dyspppsia, or any other disease ari
sing from debility, can bo cured by frequent for
ced action on the bowels with purgative medi
cines, without having a proper tonic to^accom
pany them. When these complaints exist, the
system is already too weak, and every addition
al dcse lends to make it more so. Spencer's
Vegetable Pills possess tonic and restora
live properties independent or their purgative
effects, and are believed to be the onlj ptirga.
live Pill in existence that possess these impor.
tant properties. Spencer's Bitters also ac
ting as a still more effective tonic and restora
tive, strengthen the digestive organs, and as
sist them to perform their functions as nature
designed. Hence they are found to be effica
cious aho in those Diseases peculiar to Fe
males, which arise more frequently from weak
ness than any other cause. The aged and in
firm of both sexes, and persons of sedentary
habits prone to costiveness, and those who have
suffered from loss of nppetite, have experienced
great benefit from them. In Convalescence
from Fevers, and other acute disorders, they
restore strength ; and individuals afflicted with
Nervous Headache and other derangements of
the nervous function have been entirely cured
by this medicine
In Fever and Ague and Chills and Fever,
they surpass every thing known in rooting out
the last seeds of tins worst of maladies. The
Proprietor lias known hundreds of cases, from
six to twelve months standing, who had used
almost every thing they could think of, but
were cured only for a few days at a time, when
tlfe chill would again return, but who have been
entirely cured by using this Medicine, and have
declared it to be the most sovereign and last
ing remedy they evey heard of. In fact the
Proprietor has never known them to fail curing
the very worst cases when used according to
the directions.
By removing the local inflammation from the
muscles and ligaments of the joints, these Pills
and Bitters have been known to cure Rheuma
tism, permanently in two weeks.
For Warms, they are superior to any of the
common vermifuge medicines, as they prevent
that cold 6tate of the stomach, and dislodge
from the bowels all the slimy matter to which
these creatures adhere- Aiso olsthma, by re
lieving the lungs and air vessels from the mucus
which even slight colds will occasion, which if
not removed becomes hardened and producef
this disagreeable disease. Diarhcea, Dysinte
ry, and Cholic, by removing all those bad hum
ors by which these complaints are occasioned,
and by their singular action on the secretions os
the mucous membrane. Scrofula, Scurvy, Ul
cers and Inveterate Sores, by the power they
exert in purifying the blood and all the springs
and channels of life. Scorbutic Eruptions and
Bad Complexion by their alterative effect upon
the fluids that feed the skin, the morbid state of
which occasions all eruptive complaints; Sal
low, Cloudy, and other disagreeable Cemplex.

very short hmr, will make an entire cure o.
Erysipelas, Sail Rheum, and a sinking improve
ment in the clearness of the skin. '1 he worst
cases of Common Colds and Injluenza will most
always yield to one or two doses of the Pil/s.
And as a remedy for that distressing malady,
the Piles, too much cannot be said in their fa
vor, for by using this medicine in very mode
rate doses, it has been known to cure the worst
ot cases, and that too, of those who had tried
almost every other remedy that could be pre
scribed within the whole compass of the Mateo
riaj Mediete.
Females who value good health, should nevs

Elderly Persons make it a rule to take

New Terms «;' Advertising.
The accumulation on our books of debts dtic
us in other counties, and in other States ; anp
the great difficulty attendant upon their collec
tion—to say nothing ot the tax thereby imposed
on us, and the losses we are forced to sustain,
by many of our distant debtors neglecting to
send us the amounts they may severally owe_
forces on us the necessity of adopting a mods
of computing the cost of publications to be
made in our columns, which can be easily under
stood, and which will enable our patrons to en
close, with their advertisements, the money to
pay for them. Our new terms will not vary,
materially, from the old ones ; and where there
is any chango it will be found to be in favor
of the advertiser :—For example, we propose
to make 80 words, or less, one square ; more
than 80, and less than 160 two squares; more
than 160, and less than 240 three squares, &c.
Under the old system the square averages about
75 words.
The price of advertising will not be changed;
the change in the mode of computing the quan
tity of matter in advertisements, is adopted spe
cially with a view to relieve ourself from the
evils of the credit system.
These rules, we propose, shall apply in all
cases where the persons making publication re
side out of this city, except they be Sheriff*
Coroners, Registers in Chancery, Clerks ot
Court, or other public officers
Where we open an account with officers of
.court and others of that elass,we reserve to our
self the right to charge the old prices. ‘
