Close of the Spring Session-An Inter
The spring session of this school
closed on Friday, the 28th ult
There were no public exercises
but a number of visitors attended
the private examination. Stat
Superintendent Thompson came
from Columbia, by invitation, and
was present the whole day.
The exercises in the morning began
with an examination of the primary
department in charge of Miss M. R.
Blain. There were during the
last month forty-4ve pupils in this
department, divided. Into four
grades, the lowest grade having
begun with the alphabet this year.
These pauis gave marked evidence
of progress, and bore witness to
the zeal, fidelity and ability of their
instructress. Miss Blain has had
long experience, and has ever given
the greatest satisfaction. ''oo
much praise cannot be awarded her
for her success in organizing an.d
instructing this large number of
The primary scholars having I
been dismissed, the examinations
were continued in the main build

pal, Mr. Davis. The grammar

live pupils, divided into four grades,
each grade distinct from the others.j
It is in charge of the principal and
his assistant, Miss Emily Oboar,
who has proven herself admirably
fitted for her duties, by culture
and a rare devotion to duty. To
her was entrusted the study-room
of the girls, though both sexes
The fourth grade was first passed
in review, and created much in terest
by their promptness and enthusi
asm. The spelling match between
this grade and the third,- or next
higher, was much enjoyed. Want
of time prevented final victory on
Then the third grade was called
up on arithmetic and other studies,
and briefly reviewed. These pupils
did very nicely, also. The second
grade thel, followed aid answered
correctly the questions put to
them at random. They passed a
very good examination on arith
metic, and could have gone much
further had time allowed. But
the sun had passed the meridian,
and it was found necessary to
abridge the exercises, much to the
regret of the principal.
The first grade was then
called, and its work began in
the reduction of a large com
plex fi action, so arranged as to
embrace all the rules and reasons
in common divisor, common
multiple, common fractions and
decimals. It was reduced step by
step, the reason for every rule
being carefully and succinctly
stated. Indeed, the principle upon
which the school has been con -
ducted is, that there is a reason for
everything, t Lat the pupil
must give h.,, .'1 0. u Leeem~ed
as missng tL . ..is .
amuinationi was very satisfactory.
It was followed by a review in
algebra, in whiica ex Lmples wvere
cnosen to show that the pupjils had
a conception of mathematic al
truths and principles, and were
not working by a thumb and rule
line. This being concluded, the
day was too far spent for anything
more than a spelling match between
the first and the second grade, which
resulted in a tie between two of
the young ladies, one of each grade.
This was conducted by Comnmiss
Sup .rin tenden t Thompson then,
by request, mn.Lde a ferv very happy
remarks to the scholars, congratu
lating both them and himself on
the success of the system. He
brought down the house by saying
that lhe had just discovered that
he had made the mistake of his
life in teachir g only boys. This
school wvas a complete success as
an experiment in the co-education
of the sexes. Hie paid a handsome
compliment to Mount Zion in the
days of Mr. Hudson, and expressed
his belief that a prosperous career
was again in store. After a few
words from the principal the school
A most pleasing episode was the
presentation to the principal, by
the - pupils of the school, of a
handsome lounge, a centre table,
a ouspador and a fan. The pre-.
Sanltation was made, on behalf of
the scholars, by Master WV. 0. Rion,
in a very graceful little speech. It
was accepted with many thanks by
the principal, who remarked that
no other gift could have possibly
been more acceptable. The long

TOTAL ABSTINENCE SAVING WI:E TILL IT
There is a curious story about some native
wines which are extensively advertised nowa
clays, and have only recently been put upon
the market. Dr. Underhill. the well-known
grape-grower of Croton Point, died in 187r.
Sole of his heirs entertained temperance
views of such extreme kind, that they were
unwilling to allow the stock of wines then on
hand to be sold or any more to be made.
The grapes have romletimles been senlt to
market, and sometimes left to decay upon
the vines. It is only no0w that tihe othIer heirs
hiave succeeded Jo arranging for a settlement
of the estate and the sale of the u ines on
hand. Among these is a wvine of the 'intage
of 1864, described as a "Swcet Union1 P'ort,'
but suggesting thle Imperial Tlokay more
than any other Eulropean wine0, and beCing
wholly unlike anIy other winle of American
growth. Its pukrity', age and mellowness are
renmarkable. and both phlysicians and wine
fanciers have a special mlterest in it as the
oldeCst natkive wino now accessile in ally con
siderable qualfntit y. Tile whole stock is in thle
Ihands of tile welIl-known whlolesaile grocery
honse of tile Tihurbers.-N. Y. Tike
Nov. 19. 16'77.
The above speaks for itself, bult we would
add thant tis is tile pure juice of the grape,
neither drugged, /ignored nor watered; that it
has been ripened and mellowed by age, and
for medicinal or sacramental purp)oses it Is
unsurpassed. It can be obtained from most
of the leading Druggists throughlout the
United States, and at wholesale from the
undersigned, who wvill fonivard descriptive
