TO OUR PATHOFS. 



■►♦♦- 



It is our earnest wish to furnish facilities for obtaining a sound 
Education at the lowest practicable rates. 

Hence, when we issued our Catalogue in June, though the cost of 
living had greatly advanced, we added but twenty-:^ve cents per week 
to the price of our Board, and allowed other charges to remain as they 
were. Many then thought we ought to add more, Init we were un- 
willing. 

Since fixing these terms, so rapid and unexpected has been the 
risp in every thing, that we are satisfied we cannot, by any means, sus- 
tain ourselves at present prices. We are, therefore, obliged to make a 
further advance on Board of Twenty-Five Cents per Aveek. On;' 
charges, therefore, for Board, Wasiiing, Room-rent, and Fuel, will lie 
S3, 00 per week. This makes a difference of but Siil,()(l a year in our 
terms from those of last year, which we think v«)u will regard as a 
trivial advance in view of our increased expenses. Wo hope, tlicrcforc, 
that none having commtMu-ed our course, Avill bo prevented, by thi<, 
from completing it, ami that none having meditated entering our Sem- 
inary will be turned aside.

WiLLiAMSPORT IS ouc of tlic luost bcjiutiful jiiid liejiltliv pliices ill the State. 
It has never been subject to epidemies of any kind. ^Faiiy coiniii;^: to tlie Seliool 
sicklv, have returned fullv restored. Tlie h)cation is central and accessible 
from all quarters. The Railroads, now completed, bring- us within a few hours 
ride of Elmira, Lockhaven, Danville, ]\)ttsville, IIarrisbui\u-, lloUidaysburo-, 
Philadelphia, I^altimore and New ^'ork. No more desirable ])ositiou for a 
Seminary of Learning can be found. 

oil G A NTZ AT TO N. ' 

The School is organized on the most approxcd j)lan of the best Institutions 
of New York and New England. It embraces both sexes, iiuder the same g()\- 
ernment and instruction. The President and the other membci-s of the l-^icultv 
occu[)3' apartments in the building, eat at the same tal»le, and Innc a constant 
oversiiiiitof all the Students. 

The ladies" private and })ul»lic I'ooms are entirely separate from th(^ others 
and there is no association of the sex(s but in the ])i-eseiice ot' their instructors 
yV/e Jjddics (uul ( iviitlmu a hiirc Ic.^s J ncdoin <>J infcrci'iirsr Invr thdii nt honn'. 

The happy influence, nuifudlhi rxprfcd, in their siight association in the reci- 
tation-room, at the table, and in the i)ublic (vxei'cises of the (yhap<'l, is to be seen 
in the cultivation of a cheerful and animated disposition,^ — in the foi-mation of 
L^ood habits and manners, — in ardent (h'votion to study, — and in the attainment 
of high moral character. These with many other valuabh' results, have estab- 
lished the fact, that the best i)lan for a School is. accoi-ding to the evident de- 
sign of Providence in the constitunon of societw on the basis of a well vv<>\\- * 
late(b (Christian famih'.

The luiildiiin-s will ;i(et)iniiu)(l;ite (two in a i-ooni) about two huiulred stu-

water. The rooms are lart;e and well ventilated. In the entire arrangement 
of the buildings, great care has been liad for the comfort and health of the oc- 
cupants. The grounds contain about seven acres, afloi-ding suthcient room for 
exercise and play.

Tlu' discipline is mild, but tirm and impartial. While every encouragement 
will be given to the orderly and studious, and due allowance be made for youth- 
ful indiscretions, yet the lawless and refractory cannot long remain among us. 

RELIGIOUS SERVICES. 

r:very Student is required to attend religious services at the opening and close 
of school, each day, as well as public worship morning and evening everv 
Sabbath, at ,sar/t place as jmrentfi or (/aanlian.s iiiai/ designaic.

f^cefarian comment, in the morning and evening services of the cha])el. The 
whole school read in concert. 

L I T E R A R Y S O C I E T [ E S . 

Hesides the regular weekly exercises in (A)mposition and Declamation, there 
are three tlourishing Literary Societies in the Institution : the ^'Belles Lettres '' 
''(;ammaEi)silon,'' and ''Tripartite Union, '^ each of which prepares and reads 
to the school a j»aper once a month. About UOO volumes are in the Societies' 
Libra I'ies. 

MERIT AND DEMERIT. 

A strict weekly record is kept of all the exercises of the school, from which 
record the students will be graded.

WILLIAMSPORT DICKINSON SEMINARY.

A record of demerits is also kept. Tardiness, unexcused absences from required 
exercises, and all disorderly conduct will subject the student to demerit maj-ks. 
Three such marks may bring a private reproof before the Faculty ; six, a reproof 
before the Ladies or Gentlemen, as the case may be ; nine, a public reprimand 
before the whole school; and twelve may send the offender away. Sessional 
Reports are sent to parents when requested. 

TO YOUNG MEN. 

Several steady young men can have employment the Institution, and thus 
meet a large portion of their expenses. 

Schools also can be had by Ladies and Gentlemen who desire to teach. Ap- 
plications are made from a distance for competent teachers. 

A WORD TO PA 11 EN TS. 

1. Try to have your children here at the commencement of the term. The 
('lasses are then formed and it will be better for all concerned that the student 
start regularly Avith his class. 

2. If possible, do not call them away during the session. Absence, if only 
for a few days, disarranges the class, and is generally the beginning of irregu- 
larity on the part of tlu; scholar. 

W. Do not allow your children to leave the school before the examinations, 
unless it cannot be avoided. Serious inconvenience, to all concerned, often 
arises from a neglect of this caution. 

4. Su[)ply them eery sp<(rhujli/ with sju-nding money. Parents cannot ])e too 
cautious on this point. 

5. Select for your child one of the Instructors, as a Patron, to distribute his 
funds. In this way a more judicious use of vour money will be made, and your 
child be kept from many temptations. 

N. H. — These two last suggestions are to lie I'egarded as establishe<l rules of 
the school. 

j><!0?"Students not, l)oai-ding in the Institution, must ol>serye the following 
additional rules : 

1. Attend Eyening Prayers. 

'2. Must attend all the Seminary Exercises punctually.
