The undersigned take pleasure in giving their testi
mony to the merits of this School, and its high claims
to the public patronage. The teachers are all highly
qualified for their several departments, by learning, ex
perience, zeal and tact. Thoroughness is the term by
which we would designate -Mr. Gould's method of teach
ing. He is a scholar, and unusually well qualified to
give instruction in every department of science.
Miss Kellogg is an accomplished and successful teach
er. Her drawings and paintings are not surpassed by
any of the kind ever seen in this vicinity.
Mrs. Gould's musical education, acquired in Europe,
under some of the most eminent masters her long ex
perience and success, entitle her to rank among the very
best teachers of music in our country.
We feel justified in saying that few Schools present
equal advantages for obtaining a thorough education,
and at a moderate expense. -

The flag tells of safety as gaily it waves.
The rails are all clear, and the Monarch's ahead;
See forth from his nostrils the deep glare of red.

Hurrah! then hurrah! we are off by express.

Our frame not laligueu, nor oppressed is tne neari.
With fire and spirit right onward we press.
Hurrah! then hurrah! we are safe by express.

GREENSBORO' FEMALE COLLEGE.
THE next session of this Institution Unit begin at 9
o'clock, A. M.. on the last Wednesday of July. It
is extremely desirable that all the pupils shall be present
at the selection of rooms, .and the classification of th
scholars, which will take pUce at that time; -
The College will be provided with a competent eorpi
of teachers, and many improvements maue in thedotoeSJ
tic arrangements. .
The departments of the ordinary English course
Mathematics, Natural Sciences, Ancient and Modern
languages , are under the immediate inspection of the
President, who also gives instruction in some of these"
branches. He is aided by a Professor and three Ladies
The department of Music is committed to Professor
Kern, whose reputation gives every guarantee that it
will be managed with ability. He is assisted by two ex
For the acquisition of the elegant accomplishment of
Oil-Painting the College at present affords superior ad
vantages. There is probably no where in North Caro
lina a gallery, of paintings equal in beauty of execution
to that produced by the pupils during the last year, and.
exhibited at Commencement. .
The domestic department is under the management of
Thomas C. Blake, Esq., and his Lady, late of Fayette'
Ville. Mr. and Mrs. Blake have reared a family of
daughters and have thus large recommendations to the
confidence of the community.
The Board of Trustees, with a liberality becoming
those who have charge of so flourishing an Institution
have determined to add immediately to their present no
ble edifice, a building which will give such room that
more quietness and better discipline and instruction can be
secured. The pupils will not be crowded in the dormito-
rics. The Trustees will proceed also to enlarge and
beautify the grounds and introduce such a system of ex.
ercise as will promote the health of the pup-'',
There is perhaps ro healthier place in North ftf olinsl
or Virginia than Greensboro.' The inhabitants : i the
town are remarkable for general morality and industry f
tne location of the College surpasses tbat of any Insti
tution which the undersigned has ever visited, and he
has seen all those of most note in the country ; and the
situation in the central part of the State makes it easy
Attention is paid to the manners of the pupils, and
every accomplishment desirable for a young lady to ac
quire may be obtained here. While the ornamental
branches are cultivated, they are not made to constitute
the staple of the education- which we endeavor to impart
to our pupils. A high, intellectual training a thorough
discipline of the mind is sought to be attained as of first
importance after the cultivation of moral and religious
The Trustees and Faculty make every possible effort
to prevent extravagance. The regular College charge
arc moderate. The next session will consists of live
months. For Board and Tuition in the ordinary English
branches, and in Latin or Greek, if desired, the charge
is $60; for Music $20; for Oil Painting $15; for
Drawing 5$ ; for French or any other modern language
