In a late number ofjnur paper, yon expressed tho intention of making some remarks upon the subject. No such remarks have appeared, to my' nnwlcdgo. Therefore, as I have no per sonal connexion with the Institution, cither by nfiice or patronage, and no other interest in il than Ihat of a citizen, I believe I may trust myself and bo trusted by your readers, when I say that the recent examination was among the most substantial and satis factory I have ever witnessed in any insti- lution.

I here havo been conni cted Willi it during that lime, one hundred and forty-four pupils, front ten or twelve difi' rent stales and provinces, under lb" pare nflhe Principal and eevoral asociate teacher. It was establi-hed bv the efforts and fund nf private individuals'. By t In" in a handnnu" and convenient edifice has been erected, in a central but unexpo. cd iiua'inn, and c inveniendy connected with the Boarding Establishment, which', uiilil now, has been under ihe superintend ence nf Hon. Win. A. Gri-wold. Mr. Griswohl now retire from il on account of ill healih in hi- family. Il was llio design nflhe founders to vs. tabli-h such a school, n. in l hrir view, tho public wants demanded a school, wh eh would be wo thy of, and would cnmmind the ntt i niiou of young Ladies in our S'nte , in tho latter pirtion of their term of pupilage. 'The coti'se of .-tody U intended thor oughly lo discipline the mmd- of the pupil. In bring nut and strengthen by ex 'rc.l.-n all their facubie. so as to give Ihe pupiH such a control over her own mind a, ena bles her to place it upon any subject and retain it there al ple.vorc: in other words, to give her the power of thinking decrlu and coireithj. To attain this strength of mind and ibis power of conlroling it, niath-pmaiic-' and language are pursued to somo extent. the progress of the pupils in those studie- i onward and thorough ; and il is found lo produce on their minds tho same results which are denied hylbe young men in our colleges from pursuing the samo ohd studie.. 'The moral discipline of ibis Institution is iich as it nughi lo be, firm, affectionate, and equable. It is in'onded to give the pupil c nstant and healthful employment. No young lady, coming to the fdiool for the sake of improving her mind, heart, or manners, ha ever hicn dissatisfied. The pupils are constantly under the care nf their teachers both in and out of school hours. On staled evening, and on some other occas'ons, they see, nnd associate with, company under such regulations as every judicious parent will approve. The general intcroslsof the Seminary arc under the superintendence of a Board of Trustees. Its expenses arc so low as to place its advantages within the reach of vlmost any family. The Boarding Estab. lishment will hereafter be conducted by Mr. D. A. Brama.n, a gentleman of liberal ed ucation; nnd from personal acquaintance, wo feel authorised to say, Ihat Air. Braman and his lady possess largely the requisite qualification, bolh of head and heart. for such n charge ; and ihat their family circle will be such an one as every parent would wish to havo his daughler placed in. In respect to religious belief, ihc rules of thu Seminary arc snfiicicnlly tolerant and liberal. All the pupils ore required to at lend public worship somewhere on tho Sab- balh, ond generally do attend under tho care of their icacliers, unles otherwise directed by their parents. No ono how ever is constrained to ntlend a place of worship which she does, not choose. But I perceive, sir, that I am extending my review Tar beyond the limits intended! In justice I could not have said less in jnstico to the Insl'Musnm, which is at onco on ornament to our town and state, I ought to say much more of its harmonious and efficient operation in making thorough tchnlarn. But I will nut add. Its well filled halls already bear amplo testimony thai an enlightened community arc begin ning to know, appreciate, and improvo itt advantages. 0TAi
