State Uauiier.
We saw in the State Library, yesterday, a
beautiful banner, which the Governor hasdi
retied to be sent to tbe Crystal l'alace at New
York in compliance with a request made by
the managers of that exhibition. It is made ot
• kroad stripes of white and mazarine blue satin,
with rich silver fringe and elegant light blue
drapery, wihch is held up by the beak of a
handsome silver eagle at the top of the staff.—
Od one side are the coat of arms of the S;a’e,
enclosed in a wreath of oak leaves; a beautiful
large star, with gilt rays, representing the State,
whose name, “Virginia" is inscribed below—
On the other side is the U. S. coat ot arms, en
circled by a wreath of laurel leaves; with thir
ty-one golden stars sown over the banner, and
tiie word “Union" inscribed below. The pain
tings are very fine—and the whole affair does
credit to the artist, Horstmanns, at Philadel
phia, and to Col. MunforJ, by whose direc
tions it was manufactured.—Rich. Ei«y.

Treasury Circular.
The Secretary ot the Treasury has issued
an important circular, under date of August
25th, in which the law is defined in relation to
the imports of Merchandise into the ports ot
the United States and the duties of Revenue
officers pointed out. The law is important to
all persons connected with the revenue service,
whether as government employeesjor as impor
ters of goods. The Secretary directs that in
relation to goods imported from interior coun
tries remote frcm the seaboard, and having no
shipping ports of their own, through the sea
ports ot other countries, the “period of exporta
tion,” in such cases, at which the actual market
value and wholesale price of merchandise in
the principal markets of the country whence
imported into the United States, is to be ascer
tained and estimated as the basis of dutiable
value, is the date at which the merchandise in
question leaves said interior country, destined
1,1 g°od faith, and in regular and usual course
of trade, for shipment to some owner, con
signee, or agent residing in the United States;
of which satisfactory proof must be exhibited
at the time ot entry.
1 hat period will be established ordinarily by
tne date ot authentication of ihe invoice by
the consular certificate.
In the absence, satisfactorily explained, of
the proofs above ind*cated, showing the date of
exportation from the foreign country, other evi
dence of that fact may be taken by the ap
praisers. J r
The law require# that there shall be added to
Ihe “actual market value of wholesale price”
of imports, ascertained a# above, in order to fix
the dutiable value, “allcost# and charges, ex
cept insurance, and including in every case a
charge of commissions at the usual rates.”
These charges are,
First—1 hey must include “purchasing, car
riage, bleaching, dyeing, dressing, finishing
putting up, and packing," together with the
value ot the sack, package, box, crate, hogs
head, barrel, bale, cask, can and covering oi
all kinds; bottles, jars, vessels aud demijohns.
Second—Commissions at the usual rate,
but m no case less than two and a half per
cent.; and where there is a distinct brokerage,
or where brokerage is a usual charge at the
place of shipment or purchase, that to be added
likewise. ,
Third—Export duties, cost of p acing car
goes on board ship, including drayuge, labor,
| bill of lading,lighterage, town ilues, and shn -
: ping charges, dock or wharf dues; and a!*
charges to place the article on ship-board, anu
tire insurance, if effected tor a period prior to
ihe shipment of the goods to the United Mates.
Freigh from the Ioreign port ol shipment to
the port ol importation is not a dutiable charge:
but vs hen goods are transported from an inferi
or country for shipment to the l. mtcu Mu^es,
the cost of transportation to the fore gn port ot
shipment mu>t also be included among the du
tiable charges.
Invoices of goods actuaiiv purchased, must
exhibit the true cost. Other invoices must
show the market value. In the matter ot ap
praisement. appeals may be made to a mer
chant aud an appraiser at large. 1 lie rates ot
foreign currencies are fixed by law, and these
; specified rates are to be taken in ^ ail cu>e>
' where the duties are estimated, unless other
wise specially ordered by the Department.

Commencement lor conferring degrees will be
held. .
The ensuing session will open on the 2bUi
of September next. The charges are :
For Tuition per session of nine months. - Si 0 00

To those who do not board in College the
charge tor Tuition is the same, and lor the use I
ot room, furniture, library, &c., $25 per session.
There is an admission lee ot &IU and a small
charge each session for contingencies. Fuel
and "lights furnished at cost, ami washing at
37'. cents per dozen. The necessary college
expense* ot a boarding student will not exceed
SsijjO or *120 per annum. Ail the bills are pay
able one-hail at the beginning and the balance
at the middle o! the session.
With a view ot giving to the different de
partments ot instruction a wider extension,
and at the same time ol meeting a public want,
by rendering the advantages of the College i
available to a larger number and a more va
riet class of students, some important changes
have been made in the order and arrangement
o; the studies. A new course has been adop
ted, styled the Scientific Course, and the degree
ot Bachelor of Philosophy (B. P.) attached to
it. It will occupy about three years, and will
embrace ail the studies ot the regular course
tor the degree ol Bachelor of Arts, with the
exception of the Ancient Languages. This
course will tie specially adapted to those who j
| wish to obtain what is caiieu a practical euuca- j
ion, a- the mathematical ami scientific studies
will have greater prominence than usual, par
ticularly m their application to the arts and
business ol life. Those who may wish to be
come practical surveyors, engineers, or agricul
turists will be enabled, with the advice of the
Faculty, to select their studies with special re
lerence to those objects, and will receive toe
aid of lectures and illustrations. The doors of
the College will, also, be opened to those who
may wish under its general regulations to pur
suear.y branch o! study for any length ol time.
They may, under the direction of the Faculty,
select such subjects as are suited to their views
and objects in lne, and, on examination, may
receive a regular certificate ot their standing
and proficiency in the same.
The number of officers and instructors has
lately been increased, and others will be added
as the wants of the several departments may
require. . ril. . ..
Measures are in progress* for filling immedi
ately the chair ot Chemistry, Geology, Miner
alogy, and Botany in a manner that will
add greatly to the interest and profit oj those
stud.es. _ ,,ii
The Preparatory Department has been placed
under careful and etficient management, in a
building which has been handsomely tilted up
\ for its reception. It lias an able and experi
! diced teacher, and is under the general super
vision of the Faculty. It will thus afford the
I best advantages lor laying the foundation ot
j a thorough Classsical and Mathematical edu
cation. . , | ,
Boarding pupils will be received under the
immediate care and direction ot the 1 unci pa!,
! and a* about the same expense as regular Uol
i ege students.
The buildings have recently undergone tho
rough repairs, and the grounds are being laid
out and improved in a manner that will add
much to the convenience and attractiveness ot
its already beautiful situation.
It is believed the College never presented so
strong inducements as it now does to your-g
* men who desire to obtain a thorough and liber
al education. J- s. bacon,

mer personified in Ormuzd or the spirit of good,
and the latter in Ahriman or the spirit of evil
of the Persian theology. It is a work ot great
