Several professions will occasionally be found abbreviated, for the purpose of
avoiding the doubling of a line; such.as LBRR, for laborer; CABMKR, for cabinet
maker; BLKSMTH, for blacksmith; CARP, for carpenter; BRKMKR, for brickma-
ker; &c., &c.; but the profession intended to be represented by the abbreviation
will be so obvious as hardly to require elucidation.
Note.-In the following, the directions are, for the most part, brief, plain,
intelligible, and to the point. I have striven to obtain the proper spelling of
names; and in searching for a name, the inquirer ought to know its proper
spelling. A person, for instance, looking for Commons, ought not to look among
the Cummins’s; for Neilson, among the Nelson’s; for Macdonough, or Mackoy,
among the McDonoughs and McCoys; for Walsh among the Welch’s and Welsh’s
and vice versa, and scores, or hundreds, of other like cases of synonymes as to
The cause of censure, in a large majority of cases, is attributable solely to the
want of a knowledge of the correct spelling of the name sought for; therefore,
you must know how to spell the name, else censure not if you do not find it;
mind this, in part, as you go along.
Observe, that the letters I and J, U and V, are not interchangeably arranged,
but I and U take the precedence of J and V.

This Institution, for the last six years, has been devoted to the
instruction of Gentlemen in
upon principles practically adapted to business purposes, the
pupil being conducted through the bona fide operations of the
Counting-house, without a Text-book or Lecture.
N. B. The ability of each pupil to discharge the duties of an
Accountant, in charge of the most complicated books, or to sustain
an examination before a conimitte of accountants of his own
choosing, in every case, is guaranteed.
Tuition Fees in advance; the pupil having the reserved right
of reviewing, during life, free of charge.
Special attention given to those wishing instruction in Steamboat
Book-keeping, and just as practical a knowledge guaranteed
as can be obtained on any boat
Complicated entries adjusted, and counsel given in the
opening and closing of Books, either at the room, or place of
The undersigned, pupils of Jonathan Jones, take great
pleasure in stating that many of us had attended other Schools,
previous to entering this Institute, without receiving any practical
knowledge of the science of Double-entry Book-keeping.
But after attending a full course, we found Mr. Jones’ mode of
instruction to differ in this important particular, viz: Each pupil
is conducted through the operations of the Counting-house,
by journalizing posting, and balancing from 20 to 30 sets of
Books, adapted to the precise forms used by us in actual business
—and we do most unequivocally declare it as our opinion,
from what we have seen, that any young gentleman of ordinary
business habits, can acquire just as thorough a knowledge of the
accountant’s duties under Mr. Jones’ instruction in four or six
weeks, as it is possible for him to obtain in the most extensive
business house in the same number of years. For further particulars,
enquire of us in person.
And four hundred more.

This Institution, one of the most useful female establishments
in this city, has been in successful operation for more
than a year, and in that period, has produced some of the most
elegant female writers in the west or elsewhere, and is now patronized
in a degree, unknown in chirogiaphic institutes in
this city, it being a deplorable fact, that the more solid and
useful branches have, heretofore, been most sadly neglected, in
the education of polite females; and the more frivolous and frequently
useless branches substituted in their stead. From
which circumstance, it is not uncommon to see a fine lady, otherwise
highly accomplished, hardly able to write her name intelligibly,
(being entirely ignorant of accounts;) whilst the
facility and ease with, which a lady may acquire those branches,
leaves them without even the shadow of an excuse.
English Grammar will be taught to Ladies in classes of twenty
or upwards, whenever organized.
Ladies and parents are invited to call, and examine the progress
of pupils for themselves.
