Lectures on History, on Natural Science, and on various Branches of Philosophy. The Institute is furnished with a good apparatus — philosophi- cal and chemical — and with abundant means of ocular demon- stration in Geography, History, Astronomy, and other scien ces. It will be seen by recurring to the list of our teach- ers, that we carry forward this system of instruction upon the principle of great division and subdivision in labor. Each department of study has its responsi- ble head; while the Principals, in addition to the du- ties of personal instruction, labor, by a watchful over- sight of all the parts, to give efficiency and unity to the whole system. It would be a serious mistake, however, to suppose that the education we contemplate is limited to any course of mere instruction, however systematic or complete. Our plan embraces physical and moral as well as mental culture ; and any thing short of the most assiduous attention to the health and general character of our pupils, would prove us unworthy the high trust reposed in us, when a child of tender 10 years and unformed character is confided to our sole charge. We wish it to be understood, that in order to en- sure the highest benefits from the advantages of the Institute it is indispensable, that pupils begin with us early and continue through the course without inter- ruption. And this we say in reference alike to any practice of deferring entrance until the foundations of an education for better or for worse have been laid elsewhere, or of delaying entrance at the opening of the year until some part of the terra has elapsed, or of leaving before the year closes, or of frequent and long visiting at home or elsewhere during term time. The importance of these suggestions is duly felt in our Institutions for the education of young men ; and an impartial public sentiment will not long, we are persuaded, judge it any more fit that a young lady should lose a considerable part of the much shorter period allotted to her education. Our course is tho- rough, and our standard such as cannot be reached in a less period of time than we have here assigned. While the above is an accurate outline of the regu- lar course of instruction here, it is proper to state, that pupils who have made considerable advancement elsewhere, will be allowed at the option of parents or as may seem to us best, to fall into classes above or below those of the year, to which she more properly belongs. In conducting the education of those committed to our care, we studiously avoid all appeals to the prin- 11 ciple of emulation. So far as relates to deportment and scholarship, each young lady is referred to a stan- dard of perfect punctuality and correctness ; in regard to her attainments, she is compared, not with her as- sociates, but with herself — with what she is capable of doing, and what she is expected to do. This is done daily, in the recitations ; weekly, in the report given in from Teacher's meeting ; and monthly, in a writ- ten record, made by the teachers at the close of the month, which indicates the advancement each pupil has made, and which is preserved for the inspection of the parent or guardian only. No member of the Institution is permitted to pay or receive visits on the Sabbath. Public worship is attended in the Chapel of the Institute on the morning of that day — and in the evening a Biblical Exercise or familiar lecture, at which all are present. The Academic year commences on the 2nd Mon- day in October, and terminates on the 15th day of June. Pupils who can more cenveniently come at the opening of College in Columbia, will be received at that time without additional charge. The first session of the term or academic year, will close on 14th February. Each session payablo in advance. The Institution will be open five days of the week, during the hours of recitation, from 6 A. M. to 5 P. M., to the inspection of Patrons and those interested in the cause of Female Eduaction. 12 TERMS.
