In what we have Mid we do not desire to be understood as reflecting, in the slightest degree, upon Mr. j Kdson, on whom rests the entire government of the school; for none labors more assiduously, and few.

But happy, indeed, are we to be able to ay that thit and all kindred obstacles have been to a large extent triumphantly surmounted by the I unremitting labor and uiiwearing exercite of thoie really tine abilities potS'tted by thit highly accomplished young lady. For rare it it indeed that we find 'an examination furnf?hiii?r abundant and satisfactory evidence of the mark'd | improvement of pupil*.
