entertained, as it is supposed that he is ex

ultimately, however long he may prolong it.
He will not dare return to the city of Mexico,
is the universal opinion, until some success
should crown his efforts to redeem his thou
sand promises to the deluded people and
the clergy, the latter being now his only
backers.
Command of the Mexican Army. — It is
generally reported that the Mexican govern
ment have removed Gen. Santa Anna from
the chief command of the army, and appoint
ed Gen. Valentine Canalfzo as his succes
sor.— Vera Cruz Chronicle of the 28 th ult.
By a person just arrived from Oriza, we
know that Gen. Santa Anna had arrived
there with about 200 dragoons, and imme
diately commenced recruiting, having un
der his command about 6000 men of the fu
gitives from Cerro Gordo. He also assures
us that a correspondence had been seized
by the authorities at Mexico, addressed by
a great personage toSenor Rejon, offering a
certain sum if he would bring about an ear
ly peace, and to place all the requisite means
at his disposal.

ST. MARY'S
FEMALE SEMINARY,
ST. MARY’S COUNTY, Ml).
Trustees take pleasure in announcing to the
JL public that this institution is now, in every re
spect, prepared lor the reception of pupils. Origi
nating in the patriotism of the Legislature and
founded by the patronage of the State, it presents
advantages and attractions rarely enjoyed by similar
establishments. The beautiful and commodious
building is situated on the commanding site of the
old Provincial capital at St. Mary’s, remarkable a
like for its beauty, its bcalthfulness and its liicility
of access; and affords ample accommodations for at
least eighty boarders. In the same spirit of tolera
tion which first emanated from that sacred spot, it
has no especial connexion with any favored sect,
but is conducted upon the most liberal principles of
[Christianity, the moral and religious education of
children ol different persuasions being equally
though carefully attended to.
The sleeping apartments arc divided into rooms
1 designed fur the accommodation of from two to four
persons each. Immediately adjacent is a bathing
and wash room abundantly supplied with both warm
and cold water; whilst within less than an hundred
yards there are conveniences on a clean and hold
shore for salt water bathing during the summer sea
son. The hoarding department is under the control
of a gentleman in whose character, management
and attention, aided as he will he by his amiable
wife, the trustees have entire confidence. The pu
pils, however, will he at all times under the imme
diate care of the teachers, who have charge of their
religious at? well as intellectual education, in mak
ing their selection, the trustees have not only been
fortunate in obtaining ladies of the highest qualifi
cations and accomplishments, hut also of different
creeds, so that it will he the duty of each to impart
religious instruction to the children of their respec
tive persuasions.
Although the remarkable bcalthfulness of the
situation would seem to render the precaution un
necessary, yet to obviate an objection which some
parents in the more elevated regions of the Slate
might have to sending their children to a tide water
section, the trustees have resolved to allow but one
vacation, and for that to embrace the only season
during which malarious sickness prevails even in
the least favored parts of the county. The scholas
tic year will terminate on the first Friday after the
15th ol July, and the regular course of instruction
he suspended for two months thereafter.
The Seminary is already of convenient access both
by the Potomac and Patuxent steamboats, and will
soon become still more so by the completion of a
wharf immediately on the spot, at which a steam
boat is expected to call at least twice a week.
All the instruments and apparatus necessary for
the illustration of Chemistry, Astronomy, and the
various other branches of natural science, arc fur
nished without extra charge ; and indeed the insti
tution being established entirely for the public good
and not for private or individual emolument, there
are as few charges as possible and all reduced to the
very lowest rates.
Applications for admittance or other information
should he made to the Principal.
