From and after the 30th June, 1851, the mode
of computing the rates upon inland letters-i. e. let-
ters from one office within the United States or Terri-
tories to another, and also upon letters between the
United States and the British North American provin-
ces— is to be as follows, to-wit: Single rate, if not ex-
ceeding half an ounce; double rate, if exceeding half
an ounce, but not exceeding an ounce; treble rate, if
exceeding an ounce; but not exceeding an ounce and a
half; and so on, charging an additional rate for every
additional half ounce or fraction of half an ounce.

The mode of computing rates upon letters to Great
Britain, and to all other foreign countries, the British
North American provinces excepted, will remain as at
present, under the act of 3rd March, 1849, and agreea-
bly to instructions appended to the table of foreign


1st. Every letter or parcel, not exceeding half an
ounce in weight, shall be deemed a single letter or rate.

2d. All drop-letters, or letters placed in any post-
office, not for transmission, but for delivery only, shall
be charged with postage at the rate of one cent each.

3d. Each deputy postmaster, whose compensation for
the last preceding fiscal year (ending the 30th June, 1851,) did not exceed $200, may send through the mail
all letters written by himself, and receive through the
mail all written communications addressed to himself
on his private business, which shall not exceed in weight
one half ounce, free of postage. This does not authorize
them to frank any letters unless written by themselves,
and on their private business only; nor does it autho-
rize them to receive free of postage anything but writ-
ten communications addressed to themselves, and on
their private business.

rates, above laid down, must be charged for the excess.

2d. Newspapers, periodicals, magizines, or any other

wrappers, or in covers or wrappers open at the ends or
sides, so that the character of the matter contained there-
in may be determined without removing such wrappers.

cal, pamphl t, or other printed matter or paper con-
nected therewith, any manuscript of any kind by which
information shall be asked for or communicated in wri- ting, or by marks or signs, (except the bills and receipts
of publishers, as provided by law,) or the directions
herein prescribed are in any other respect not complied
with, the same becomes subject to letter postage; and
it is the duty of the postmaster to remove the wrappers
or envelopes from all printed matter not charged with
letter postage, for the purpose of ascertaining whether
there is upon or connected with such printed matter, or
in such package, any matter or thing which would au-
thorize or require the charge of a higher rate of postage

It will be observed that except in respect to books, the
postage on all printed matter to California and Oregon,
is the same as to any other part of the United States.

*Notes.—Each newspaper, or periodical, not exceeding one ounce and a half in weight, when circulated in

3d. By a joint Resolution of Congress, the Congres-
sional Globe and Appendix may also be sent free through
the mails so long as the same may be published by or-
der of Congress.

4th. Postmasters are not entitled to receive newspa-
pers free of postage under their franking privilege.

5th. If the publisher of any newspaper or periodical,
after being three months previously notified that his pub-
lication is not taken out of the office to which it ii sent
for delivery, continue to forward such publication in the
mail, the postmaster to whose office such publication is
sent will dispose of thesame for the postage, unless the
publisher shall pay it; and whenever any printed mat-
ter of any description, received during one quarter of the
fiscal year, shall have remained in the office without be-
ing called for during the whole of any succeeding quar-
ter, the postmaster at such office will sell the same and
credit the proceeds of such sall in his quarterly accounts
in the usual manner.

6th. Quarterly payments in advance may be made
either at the mailing office or the office of delivery.
When made at such mailing office, at the commence-
ment of a year or of a quarter, (as he may elect,) the
publisher must prepare and hand to the postmaster ready
for signature, a receipt for each post-office to which the
papers to be sent for delivery—stating the number of
papers to be sent to such post-office and the amount of
postage to be paid thereon; also, giving the names of
each of the subscribers. Upon the payment of the post-
age, the receipts must be signed by the postmaster at
the mailing office. The publisher will then direct such
receipts to the postmasters at the offices of delivery, and
they will be received there as evidence that the postage
has been duly paid. To entitle them to pass free through
the mails, such receipts must be left unsealed, endorsed
“Post-Office Business,” and directed to the postmaster
at the office of delivery. The post-masters to whom such
receipts have been sent, will be thereby authorized to de-
liver the papers mentioned in such receipts to the sub-
scribers therein named without further charge for port-

When periodicals are printed not oftener than once
a quarter, and are sent from the office of publication to
actual subscribers, the amount of postage being marked
thereon as prepaid, at the mailing office, and the name
of that office with the date of mailing being written or
stamped thereon, will be sufficient evidence to warrant
their delivery without further charge :—Such periodicals
may be prepaid by stamps.

must be prepaid 21 cents, when the Atlantic conveyance
is by U. S. packets, and 5 cents when by British packets,
except from California or Oregon, when the sura to be
Pre-paid is, in the former instance, 26 cents, and in the
latter, 10 cents.—Thus in the one case, the Atlantic Sea
postage is to be collected at the mailing office in the
United States, and in the other left to be collected to-
gether with the British transit and other foreign post-
age, at the office of delivery. Between Great Britain
and Oregon and California, the single rate of letter post-
age is 29 cents.

Periodical works and pamphlets may be sent from the
United States to the United Kingdom, and vice versa,
at 2 cents of United States postage each, if they do not
exceed two ounces in weight; and at 4 cents per ounce,
or fraction of an ounce, when they exceed that weight,
to be collected in all cases in the United States; and the
same will be subject to an additional like charge in the
United Kingdom. When sent to foreign countries.
without passing through the United Kingdom, they will
be chargeable with one cent an ounce or fraction of an
ounce, United States postage, pre-payment required.

Single rate of letter postage to or f mm Bremen. by
the Bremen line, 10 cents—pre-payment optional.—
Newspapers, each 2 cents United States postage, pre-
payment required. Letters and newspapers to other
parts of the continent may also go by this line, subject

☞N. B.—All Letters to and from Foreign Countries (the British North American Provinces ex-
cepted) are to be charged with single rate of postage, if
not exceeding the weight of half an ounce; doubl rate
if exceeding half an ounce, but not exceeding an ounce;
quadruple rate if exceeding an ounce, but not exceeding
two ounces; and so on, charging two rates for every
ounce or fractional part of an ounce over the first ounce.
As this rule differs from that followed in respect to do-
mestic letters, great care is requisite to prevent mistakes.
Postmasters should bo careful, also, where the postage
is prepaid, to collect the proper amount. They should
be particular to notice the route indicated on the en-
velops of letters and to collect postage accordingly.
Letters mailed at some offiees, marked “via England”
or “via Prussian closed Mail,” for the German States.
are frequently taken upon the pre-payment of Bremen
rates, and those marked “via Bremen,” at Prussian
closed mail rates, &c. Refer in all cases to the Postage

The Editor, on his arrival at St. Louis, found it very
inconvenient to search out the residence of persons with
whom he had business; which induced him to think of
publishing a Directory and Register , to number the
houses, and to name those streets not heretofore named ;
He made his intentions known to some of the most in-
fluential citizens of the town, who encouraged him to
proceed.——The work is now finished and it is hoped, will
give general satisfaction.——Every well informed person
must be sensibly impressed with the great utility of a
work of this nature, in a town of such importance as
that of St. Louis; being the commercial metropolis of
the state and the emporium of the trade of a greater
extent of country, than that of any other place in the
western region; and is, from its convenient situation,
destined to become much ’the largest town on this side
of the Eastern Mountains.——The labor attendant on
the collection of the necessary information for this under-
taking was very great, more particularly so, as it is the
First publication of the kind attempted in the State
of Missouri. It was at first contemplated to insert a
digest of the Ondinances of the Corporation, but on
examination, they proved too voluminous, and the Con-
stitution of the United States has been substituted in
their stead, which, it is hoped, will give general satis-
faction. In addition to the names of the inhabitants
will be found descriptive notes on St. Louis; the Con-
stitution of the State of Missouri, and a variety of use-
ful information particularised in the “List of Contents.” The reader is requested to examine the “Directions to
the Reader,” at the commencement of the names, in
order that every part may be clearly understood.

The editor takes this opportunity to thank those
gentlemen who so kindly furnished answers to his many
queries, during the time he was engaged in the collec-
tion of information.

Notwithstanding great assiduity and pains have been
used to make the work as complete as possible, no doubt some errors will be found: These, he feels confident, will
be overlooked by an indulgent public.

As the editor lias incurred considerable expense in
accomplishing this work, and as it promises bo much
convenience and usefulness to the citizens, he flatters
himself that it will meet with a ready sale. To those
gentlemen who have patronized him, he tenders hli
most sincere thanks.

Notes of St. Louis.

St. Louis, Missouri, is a flourishing incorporated post
town, pleasantly situated on the right bank of the Mis-
sissippi river, 18 miles below the junction of the Mis-
souri, 190 above the mouth of Ohio; and about 1200
above New-Orleans. It is the seat of justice for St.
Louis county, and is in a township of the same name. In latitude 39’ 38’ N. and long. 12’ 51’ W. from Wash-
ington City. It is the largest town in the state, of which
it is the commercial metropolis. The site is elevated and
has a decided advantage over any of the other towns, on
account of its being a bold shore of limestone rocks,
which repels the floods. Such situations are very rare,
as the Mississipi is almost universally bounded either by
high perpendicular rocks or loose alluvial soil, the latter
of which is in continual danger of being washed away
by the annual floods. This spot hasan abrupt acclivity
from the river to the first bottom; and a gradual one
from it, to the second; the first bank has a view of the
river and the numerous boats ranged along the shore and
moving on its waters, and is elevated about 40 feet; the second bank is 40 feet higher than the first bottom, and
affords a fine view of the town, river, and surrounding
country. St. Louis extends nearly 2 miles along the
river, and the country around, and west of it for the
distance of 15 miles, is an extended praiiie of a very
luxuriant soil, beautifully undulating, and covered with
shrubby oak, and a variety of other small growth.

St. Louis was first setted by Mr. Peter de Laclede
Liguert, who had obtained, at New Orleam from the
French authority, the exclusive privilege of the Indian
trade on the Missouri river. When be firat came to the
Illinois country,* there was on the west bank of the
Mississippi river, only the weak and small settlement of
Saint Genevieve; its distance from the Missouri wms by
no meains suitable to his views, and he was determined
to find a more convenient situation;——he, therefore,

* At this early period, the country on both sides of the Mis
sissi pi, wask known as Illinois, and was first settl d from Canada
by the wny of the lakes, and the Illinois and other rivars.

visited all parts of the country and found that the spot
on which the town now stands, was best calculated for
his contemplated parposes, as much by the richnes of
the soil as by the short distance by land to the Missouri,
Marameo and other neighboring Btreams, but principally
for the beauty of its elevation, which undoubtedly, is
without parallel in upper Louisiana. M. de Laolede,
considering there advantages, settled himself and had
the first trees felled on the 15th February. 1764. He
frequently told his friends, that he was commencing the
foundation of a town which might prove with time, to
be one of the greitcst in America. Shortly after the
beginning of this settlement, several inhabli’an:s from
Cahokia and fort Chartres, ccome and settled themselves,
M. de. Laclede encouraged and protected them against
the Indians, over whom he hud great ascendeney. These. new setters, Indians and Missouri trawl rs, (batnien,)
gave to this new setlemcnt, the name of Laclede’s vil-
lage,“ thiuigh the latter never would cons nt to it, and
caused it to be in all the official documents, nainal “St.
Louis,” which at length prevailed, lie made choice of
this name in honor of Louis XV thin kinir of France.

Since that psriod the progress of civilization and im-
provement is wonderful. It is but about 40 years since the
now flourishing, but yet more promising state cf Mis-
souri was but a vast wilderness, many of the inhabitants
of this country, yet remembering the tune when they
met together to Kill the Buffalo at the same place
where Mr. Philirsan’s Ox saw and four mil is now
erected, and on Mill Creek, near to where Mr. Chou-
tean’s mill now stands.— What a prodigious change has
been operated! St. Louis is now ornamented with a
great number of brick buildings, and both the scholar
and courtier could move in a circle suiting their choice
and taste.

By the exertions of the Right Reverend Bishop Louis
William Du Bourg, the inhabitants have seen a fine
brick Cathedral rise, at the same spot where Stood form-
erly an old log Church, then sufficient, but which now
would scarcely be able to contain the tenth put of the
Catholic congngation : This elegant building was com-
menced 1818, under the superintendence n Mr. Gab-
riel Paul, the Architect, and is only in part completed :
as it now stands is 40 feel front by 135 in depth and
40 feet in height. When completed it will have a wing
on each side, running its whole lenght. 22½ feet wide and
25 in height; giving it a front of 85 feet. It will have
a Steeple the same height; as the depth of the building
which will be provided with Bevural large befis expected
from France. The lot on which the Church, College, and
other buildings are erected, embraces a complete square,
a part of which is used as a burial ground. The Cathe-
dral of Saint Louis, can Last of having no rival in
the Unit d States for the magnificence, the value and
elegance of her sacred vases, ornaments and paintings;
and inded few Churches in Europe possess anything su-
perior to it. It is a truly delightful sight to an Ameri-
can of taste, to find in one of the remotest towns of the
Union a Church decorated with the original paintinyi of
Raphael, Raphel, Guido, Paul. Voronze and a number
of other by the first modern masters of the Italian, French and Flemish schools. The ancient and precious
go’d embroideries which the St Louis Cathedr possses,
would c irtainly decorate any museum in the world. All
this is due to the liberality of the Catholics of Europe, on
who presented these rich articles to Bishop Du Bourg, on
his last turn through Prance, Italy, Sicily, and the Ne-
therland. Among the liberal benefactors could be named
many princes and princesses; but we will only insert the
names of Louis XVIII, the present King of France and
that of the barorness Le Candele de Glyseghem, a Flem-
ish lady to whose muniflcence the Cathedral is particu -
arly indebted; and who even lately, has sent it a fine,
large and elegant Organ, fit to correspond with the rest
of tin decrations. The Bishop possesses, besides, a very elegant and valuahla Library, containing about 8000
volumes, and which is without doubt, the most complete,
scientific and literar repertory of thewestern country,
if not of the western world. Though it is not public,
there is not doubt but the man of science, the antiquary, and linguist, will obtain a ready access to it, and
find the Bishop a man endowed at once with the ele-
gance and politeness of the courtier, the piety and zeal
of the Apostle, and the learning & a Father of the
Church. Connected with this establishment is the Saint
Louis College, under the direction of Bishop Du Bourg
It is a two story brick building, and has about 65 stu-
dents, who are taught the Greek, Latin, French, English,
Spanish, and Italian languages, Mathematics elemen-
tary and transcendent, drawing. &c.—There are sever 1
teachers. Connected with the College is an Ecclesians-
cal Seminary, at the Barrens in St. Geneviave county,
where Divinity, the Oriental languages, and Philosophy,
are taught.

St. Louis likewise contains 10 common schools; a brick
Baptist Church, 40 feet by 60, built in 1818; an Episco-
pal Chureh of wood; the Methodist congregation hold
their meetings in the old court house; and the Presbyte-
rians in the circuit court room.—In St. Louis are the
following Mercantile, Professional, Mechanical, &c est
ablishments, viz : 46 Mercantile establishments, which
carry on an extensive trade, with the most distant parts
of the Republic, in merchandise, produce, furs and pel-
try; 3 Auctioneers, who do considerable business: each

several promising gardens in and near to the town.

By an enumeration taken by the Editor of this work,
in May, 1821, it appears that the town contain- the fol-
lowing number of dwelling bouses, viz:—
154 of Brick and Stone, and 196 of Wood, in the North parl of the
town, and 78 of Brick and Stone, and 223 of Wood, in
the south part: making 232 of Brick, &c. and 419 of
Wood, and a total of 651 There are besides the dwell-
ing houses, a numbercf Brick, Stone,and wooden Wait
houses Stabljs, Shops and out houses—Most of the
houses are furnished with a garden, some of which are
larg and under good cultivation. The large old fash
ioned dwellings, erected by the French inhabitants, are
surrounded by a piazza, which renden to m very plea-
sant, particularly during the beat of summer. The
“Steam-Boat-warehouse”, built by Mr. Josiah Bright,
is a large brick builling, and would do credit to any of

St. Louis was incorporated by the Court of Common
Pleas, at their November term, 1809, when the country
was known as the Territory of Louisiana; under the
following limits, viz.——“Beginning at Roy’s mill on the
bank of the Mississippi river, thence runing 60 arpens
west, tbence south on said line of sixty arpens in the
rear, until the same comes to the BarriereDenoyer, thence
due south until it comes to the Sugar Loaf, thence due
east to the Mississippi, from thence by the Mississippi
along low water mark, to the place first mentioned.” The bounds of the town, as it respects the taxing of the
inhabitants, is confined to the following bounds viz:
commencing at the mouth of mill creek, (where it enters
the Mississippi river,) thence with the said creek to the
mill dam, thence with the north arm of mill creek to the
head of the same, thence by a line, running parallel wih
the Mississippi river, until it intersects the north boun-
dary of the corporation.

The town is governed by five Trustees, who are elect-
ed on the 6th December annually, by the inhabitants.
There is also a Register, whose duty it is to sac that the
Oidinances are enforced; an Assessor and an Inspector
of lumber.

The Board of Trustees has passed a number of very
wholesome Ondinances for the establishment, and supporr
of order, all of which can be seen in the Ordinance
book, in the office of the Corporation, South B. street,
above Main street, which is open. every morning, Sun-
days exepted, from 10 to 12 o’clock.

The assessed amount of taxable Property in the Cor-
poration of St. Louis, for 1821, is about $940,926, which
gives about $3763 tax.

Eight streets run parallel with the river, and are in-
tersected by twenty-three others at right angles; three
of the preceding, are in tha lower part of the town, and
the five others in the upper part. The streets in the
lower part of the town are narrow, being from 32 to
38 1-2 feet in width; those streets on “the Hill,” or
upper part, are much wider. “The Hill,” is much the
most pleasant and salubrious, and will no doubt, become
the most improved. Ths lower end of Market street is
wel paved, and the Trustees of the town have passed an
Ordinance for paving the side walks of Main street, be-
ing the. second from and parallel to the river, and the
prin ipal one for business. This is a very wholesome
regulation of the Trustees, and is the more necessary as
this and many other streets are sometimes so extremely
muddy as to be rendered almost impassable. It is hoped
that the Trustees will next pave the middle of Main
street, and that they will proved gradually, to improve
the other streets; which will contiibute to make the
town more healthy, add to the value of property, and
make it a desirable place of residence. On the Hill, in
the centre of the town is a public square 240 by 300 feet,
on which it is intended to build an elegant Court-House. The various courts are held at present in buildings ad-
jacent to the Public Square. A new stone jaill of two
stories, 70 feet front, by 30 deep, stands west of the site
for the Court-House.

Market street is in the middle of the town, and is the
line dividing the North part from the South. Those
streets running north from Market street, have the ad-
dition of North to their names, and those running in the
opposite direction, South, for example, North-Main
street, South Main street, North A.&c. street, south A.
street. The houses were first numbered by the publisher
of this Directory, in May, 1821.

The fortifications, erected in early times, for the de-
fence of the place, stand principally on the “Hill.”
They consist of several circular stone towers, about 15
feet in height, and 20 in diameter, a wooden black
house, and a large stone Bastion, the inteiior of which
is used as a garden, by Captain A. Wetmore, of the
United States army.

Just above the town are several Indian mounds and
reninins of antiquity, which afford an extensive and
most charming view of the towns and beautiful sur-
ronnding country, situated in the two states of Missouri
and Illinois, winch are separated by the majestic Mis
sissipi, and which is likewise observed in the scene as she glides along in all her greatness. Adjacent to the large
mound nearest to the town, is the Mound Garden, be-
longing to Col, Elins Rector, and kept by Mr. James
Gray, as a place of entertainment nnd recreation; the
proprietor has displayed considerable taste in laying it
out in beds and walks and in ornamenting it with flow-
era and shrubbery. In short it affords a delightful and
pleasant retreat from the noise, heat and dust of a busy

There is a Masonic Hall in which tho Grand Lodge of
the state of Missouri, the Royal Arch, and the master
mason’s Lodges are held. Connected with this excellent
institution is a burying ground, where poor Masons are
interred at the expense of the Fraternity. The Council
Chamber of Gov. William Clark, where he gives audlence
to the Chiefs of the various tribes of Indians who visit
St. Louis, contains probably the most complete Museum
of Indian curiosities to be met with any where in the
United States; and the governor is so polite na to per-
mit its being visited by any person of respectability at
any time.

These are two fire engines, with properly organised
companies; ona of which is in the north part of the
town, and the other in the south, every dwelling and
store has to be provided with good leather fire buckets.

Mr. Samuel Wiggins is the proprietor of two elegant
and substantial Team-Ferry Boats, that ply regularly
and alternately, from the bottom of north H. street,
near the Steamboat Warehouse, to the opposite shore.
The givat public utility of this mode of conveying per-
sons and property across the Mississipi needs no com-
ment, but gives the enterprising owner of them, a high
claim to the patronage of his fellow-citizens. The river
at the ferry is 1 and an 8th mile in width. Opposite
the upper part, of the town and above the ferry, is an
island about one mile and a half in length, containing
upwards of 1000 acres; it belongs to Mr. Samuel Wig-
gins. A considerable sand bar has been formed in the
river, adjoining the lower part of the town, which ex-
tenda far out. and has thrown the main channel over on
the II inois side; when the water is low it is entirely
dry, and is covered with an immense quantity of drift
wood, nearly sufficient, to supply the town with fuel, and
only coats the trouble of cutting and hauling; this is of
great consequence to the inhabitants of St. Louis, par-
dcul uly as the giowth of wood is small in tbe immediate
neighborhcod, on this side of the river. Wood is likewise
brought down the river in large quantities for disposal.

Population in 1810, 1,000; in 1818, 3,500; and at this
time, (1821), about 5,500.——The town and county con-
tains 9,732. The population is much mixed, consisting
principally of Americans, from every part of tho Union;
the original and other French, of whom there are 155
families, and foreigners of various nations; consequently
the Society is much diversified, and has no general fixed
character.——This, the reader will perceive, arises from the
situation of the country in itstlf new, flourishing. & chang-
ing: still that class who compose the respectable part of the
community, are hospitable, polite, and well informed.
Ana here, I must take occasion, in justice to the town
and country, to protest against the many calumnies cir-
culated abroad to the prejudice of St. Louis, respecting
the manners, and the dispositions of the inhabitants.
Persons meet here with dissimilar habits, of a different
education, and possessing various localities. It is not
therefore surprising, that, in a place, composed of such
discordant materials, there should bo occasional differ-
ed difficulties.——But, the reader may be assured.
that old-established inhabitants have little participation
in transactions which have so far so much injured the

St. Louis has grown very rapidly; there is not, how-
ever, so much improvement going on at this time, owing
to the check caused by the general and universal pres-
sure that pervades the country.——This state of things
can only be temporary here, for it possesses such per-
manent advantages from its local and geographical
situation, that it must, ere some distant day, become a
place of great importance; being more central wirh
regard to the whole territory belonging to the United

States, than any other considerable town; ami uniting
the advantages of the three great livers, Mississippi,
Missouri, and Illinois, the trade of which it is the

“The Missouri Fur Company” was formed by several
gentlemen of St. Louis, in 1819. for the purpose of trad-
ing on the Missouri river and its waters. The principal
establishment of the Company is at Council Bluffs, yet
they have several others of minor consequence several
hundred miles above,——and it is expected that the estath
lishment wll be extended shortly up as high as the
Mandan villages. The actual capital invested in the
trade is supposed to amount at this time, to about
$70,000. They have in their employ exclusive of their
partners on the river, 25 clerks and interpreters, and 70
liboring men.

It is estimated that the annual value of the Indian
trade of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, is $600,000.
The annual amount of imports of this town is stated at
upwards of $2,000,000.——The commerce by water is
carried on by a great number of Steam Boats, Barges
and Keel Boats.—— These centre here after performing the
greatest inland voyages, known in the world. The prin-
cipal articles of trade are fur, peltry, and lead. The
agricultural productions are Indian corn, wheat, rye,
barley, oats, buckwheat, tobacco, and other articles com-
mon to the western country.——Excellent mill stones are
found and made in this county; stone coal is abundant,
and salt petre, and common salt have been made within
a few. miles Within 3 or 4 miles are several springs of
good water, and 7 milessw.southwest is a Sulphur Spring. In
Uie vicinity are 2 natural caverns, in lime-stone rocks;
2 miles above town at “North St. Louis,” is a Steam-
saw mill; and several comtnen milts are on the neigh-
boring streams. The roads leading from St. Louis are
very good, and it is expected that the Great National
Turnpike, leading from Washington, will strike this
place, as the Commissioners for the United States have
reported in favor of it.

The American bottom is a very beautiful, rich and
extensive tract on the east side of the Mississippi ex-
tending from the Kuskaskia to witlhin five miles of the
Missouri, being about 90 miles in length by from 2 to 8
in width; opposite to St. Louis it is 7 miles. The St.
Louis market is principally supplied from the state of

The Indian agents and traders, the officers of the army
destined for the upper military post, and the suiveyors
make their outfits at St. Louis, which puts a great deal
of cash into circulation. Here is a Land office for the
sale of the United States’ lands in Illinois, Missouri and
Arkansaw. a bank with a capital of $250,000. There is
a Theatre of wood, but the foundation has been laid for
a brick one, 40 by 80 feet, which, owing to the present
stagnation in businss.south side. will not be completelvtry soon.
Lumber of various kinds is brought here from the Gas-
conade and other rivers; brick and lime are made; and
stone, sand, and every other material for buildkg, are
abundant. Two stages run from this town; one to Ed-
wardsvilie, and the other to Franklin. Colonel Chou-
teau’s mill dam in the rear of the south part of the
town, is a beautiful sheet of water, affording plenty of
fish and water fowl; it has outlet to the Mississippi,
below the town.

It is contemplated at some future day to open a dinect
intercourse with India by tin’ Missouri and Columbia
rivers. In the course of a few years the Illinois river
will be most probably connected with lake Michigan,
which will afford incalculable aavantages to this place,
as it will open a direct water communication, when the
New York and Pennsylvania Canals to the lakes are
completed, to Montreci, New York and Philadelphia.

Directions to the Reader.

The reader will please to observe the following gene-
ral rule for finding the numbers on Houses’:—In those
sheets that run north and south, Main street, for in-
stance, the numbers begin at Market street, running
north and south, the odd being on the east side; in the
cross streets the numbers begin at the river, the odd be-
ing on the north side.

For the names of streets, see “List of Contents.”

As the pronunciation of a name will often admit of
various modes of spelling it, the reader is requested not,
to relinquish his search, should he not find it at the first
attempt; but to seek for it under every possible variety
the ear may dictate—d. h,stands for dwelling house;
c. h.for counting house; nnorth; ssouth; eeast; wwest; and st.street.

Where the word street is not expressed it is to bo un-
derstood, as north Main—means north Main street: and
south A—means south A street.

General Intelligence.

From numerous communications, of similar impart,
received during the list two years, we deem it expedient
to furnish this Foimula of Intelligence for whom it may

Question 1st. What does a full Collegiate course in
your Institutute cost?

Answer. For the particulars touching this course,
please refer to page 58, the cost of which is $65.

Question 2d. Can I enter for the different courses
separately, such as for Book-keeping, at the price
charged on page 56, Penmanship page 58, &c. &c., or
am I obliged to enter for the entire course at once?

Answer. Gentlemen can enter for either of the
courses separately, at the regulir charge ;but it will
be a great saving of time to the pupil, if he design to
graduate for him to enter for the full course at once, as
each department is independent, and under the control
of its respective Professor, with the hours of instruction
so a ranged as not to conflict with each other, and thus
enable the student to appropriate his entire time to

Question 3d. What time does it usually require to
complete a course in Double-entry Book-keeping, or a
full Call giato course?

Answer. The time requisite to complete a full course
in Double-entry Book-keeping, by a young gentlmen of
Industrious business habits, (and no others make Practi-
cal A.ooountan.’s under tuiy circumstances^ writing a
fair business bund, and competent to perform the ordi-
nary calculations of an Accountant, will not exceed
eight wojks, and may not require more th;in six ; th
induction being imparted individually and not in
cass, each gen:L’inan having his respective desk, hi-
progrees will therefore be commensurate with his capa
city for receiving instruction ;ind his previous experience
in business routine. A full Collegiate course wij require
about double this period.

Question 4th. When can X enter to the best advan-

Answer. At one time just as well as another.—

[missing figure]

This institution is in perpetual session.

Question 5th. What can Boarding be obtained a
per month?

Answer. From $10 to $15 per month; good Board-
ing can at all times be obtained in private families a
$12 per month.

Question 6th. What are the prospects for a situation
provided I am qualiikd for it?

Answer. A young gentleman of good moral charac-
ter, of industrious business habits, and not too proud to
work, and willing to accept what offers, has never been
known to bs in want of a situation in this city; and no
young gentleman answering this desciption, fully quali-
tied, has ever failed to receive a proper remuneration for
his services—though all of this is indepmdent of our
contract as Teacher und Pupil. By that contract, we,
parties of the first part, are firmly bound, and by these
presents, do cov nant and agree to,complete and in every
eipect to qu:.liiy each and every Pupil to perform the
duties of an Accountant in charge of the most complica-
ted Books, or to sustain an examination before a Com-
mittee of Accountants of his own choosing—but no fur-
ther. The Pupil, party of the second part, covenants
and agrees to conform to the rules and regulations of the
Institution, and to consecrate his best efforts to the ac-
coinplishment of the objects for which he has been reg-
istered, during his entire course of instruction—but no
further. Then this agreement to be in full force ; but
if otherwise, it shall be void. Thus the Teacher and
Pupil are both free in all matters disconnected with in-
struction. This is as it should be. Our Pupils arc our
“Finger Boards,” and, as we have constant applica-
tions for young gentlemen answering to the above de-
scription, we arc quite certain to seiect ?uch only as by
their superior qualifications point to

In the permanent establishment of an Institution,
devoted exclusively to the instruction of gentlemen, in
a selece and limited number of the most imp irtnnt and
j^eful branches of aGe era] Education—confining its
operations mainly to those branches, which experience
has lonn s nee proved cannot be successfully tawjht in
connection with the great variety of studies requisite to
a sc enlific and liberal Education—it hop bean the un-
’l e able pinion of the Principal, that such an Acade-
my would Le of piblic utility, an efficient aid to the

“Common “Common School System,,” and an acceptable auxiliary
to our deservedly popihr “Literary Institutions,” in
their most laudable efforts ; while, at the same time, it
would reich a certain class, and effect nn important end,
in a commercial community, which couid not be accom-
plished in any other way.

The practicability of directing the eduation of a
young gentleman with reference to that pursuit, which
nature or inclination may lend him to choose, and thus
oreate a firm basis for an inte ligent, rational and sys-
tematic deposition of bis time, his talents, ur his capital,
is becoming mure npp *rent to aJl; and hence the increas-
ing demand for Mathematical and Law Institutes—

tions culled into being by a necessity growing out of the
very organization of society, and the diversified demands
and reciprocal duties of a business community. For the
correctness of this conclusion, apart f^m our own expe-
rience, we have tuc highest authority. In an address
on this subject, of more than usu;l interest to young
gentlemen, .iiulgo Walker (an eminent member of the
’Cincinnati Bar) remarks:

“The result to which I would conduct your minds is,
that tO the Merchant, Knowledge is Capital. If it
bo a general truth in human affairs, that knowledge is
pjwer, I hold it\to be pre-eminently so in regard to mer-
cantile pursuits. Without it, all the capital of a Gi-
rard or an Astor, would not make a merchant; and
with it, as the princip il thing, capital soonfo.lows as an
incident. Accordingly, the Jirst duty of every person
destined for a merchant, is to prepare himself, by a
suitable education, for an intelligent discharge of his
diversified functions—just as much so. aa of a lawyer, a
physician, or a clergyman; and to this end, there is
Just as much nebd of commercial schools and col-
leges as of any other—and these, I rej >ice to say, we
are beginning to have in a our commercial cities. We
have, too, commercial diotiopaiiaa and magazines—a
distinct commercial department fur—cham-
bers of commerce—boards of trade—reading rooms—
and best of all, library associations. All these things
bear gratifying testimony to the increased interest taken
in mercantile education. And why shouid it not be so ?
Why should not the mercantile profession stand side by
side with the other so called liberal professions ? There
is, in truth, no good reason, whether we look to its dig-
nity, difficulty, or utility.

* * * * * * * *

“It has been said by close observers, that, in this
country, nine merchants out of ten, fail in the course of
their lives. I know not whether this be strictly true.
It is enough for my purpose to know, that failures are
far more frequent among merchants than among any
other class of business men; and that every few years
there occurs a general crisis, or revulsion, sometimes con-
fined to one country only, and sometimes embracing the
whole commercial world, in which bankruptcies become
the order of the day. Those who seemed roiling in
wealth are suddenly reduced to beggary—the breaking
of one house drags down another, though p-Jrhfipj
oceans intervene. He, who could borrow his millions
yesterday, cannot get credit for a coat to-day. Banks
break because their debtors are broken; even the day
laborer has not the wherewithal to pay for his food, be-
cause that which he took as money has become worthkss
on his hands; in a word, the vast fabric of commerce is
overthrown, and all is chaos and confusion. Anon, a
new race of merchants appear. The darkness which
brooded over the f nee of the deep is gradually deposed
—business finds or makes for itself new channels as be-
fore—capital increases—credit expands—there seems no
end to the swelling prosperity. Every body can in-
crease his _ expenses, because his books show that his
profits are increased. The last revulsion is forgotten in
the halcyon times—the warnings of expjrience are un-
heard in tho general rush of business—f irtunes are
made in a day—nothing is required but courage and
luck. Surely these are glorious times ! Yes—but wait
till to-morrow. The bubble has burst. There is another
crisis—another revulsion—another deluge of bauki
—and so on, almost periodically.

“Let us explore some of the causes of this great evil of

“One of the most prominent causes, especially in this
on-rushing country of ours, is a prevailing eagerness for
rapid gains. Our young merchants have not patience to
begin at the bottom of the ladder andascend regularly to
the top. They must go up by a few rapid leaps. Instead
of beginning in a smafl way. and enlarging their busi-
ness gradually—themselves growing up with it—they
dash at once into a largo business, before they are fitted
for it. I speak not now wi;h re peet to capial; for. if
they bad c\er so much, this is not the way to begin, but
I the way to clo^e a commercial career. The great want is capacity to manage a large business at the outset, wh.ih
never can le acquired by a mevo apprenticeship. L
must be tho work of actual experience at the of
business, and not in any subo dinaie po-iiion. Tute two

An Outline of the Plan of Instruction in the Art of
Double Entrg Book Keeping, Commercial Law.
Commercial Calculations and Penmanship.

There has been, in the mercantile community, a uni-
ve sal prejudke of long standing, touching the art of
Double-Entry Book-Keeping, as ordinarily taught it
he “literary and Scientific Institutions” of out day
wbieh the inoompetency of many who have attempted
o te.ieh Book-Keeping theoretically, as well as the ue
fecta peculiar to th ir systems, have naturally enough
e ited. This prejudice is both well founded and jusl ,
bu: if tho e hwi in ions h >ve mi-take > l;oiu 1—i i:trv
Book-Keeping (a practical art) for an abstruse, compl x
and difficult science, and delivered long printed lec-
tures upou its “Speculative Ihcory,” or lequiied she
student to memorize arbitrary rules, and finally f. iled in
the end to ac*omi>lish their object, doea it hence folLm
that we are to have no improvement in the art of teach-
ing ? or, are systems founded upon enii ely different
principles—principles diametrically opioodto tho-e in
their Learing and practical application—subject to the
samefite, and that, too, without a fiir trial? This
conclusion is disingenuous, illogical and unjust. It is
obvious to every intelligent practical accountant that his a thejry as well as a practice to be
acquired, and to that young gentleman aspiring to the
highest rank as a scientific and practical accountant,
much will depend upon the demonstrator of tho>e prim i-
plfli which aro to govern him in the performance of hi;
duties, ’ihe utility of Double-Entry Book-Keeping, in
the management of accounts, is no longer questi ned.
Its perfect adaptation (with proper forms; to mercan-
tile, steamboat, manufacturing, and joint stock opera-
tions, has been so fully tested, that but few business
men now consider thjir capital safe, where the books of
the company aro not kept by double-eutry.

The only question is, how are young gentlemen, inex-
perienced in the management of accounts, by double-
entrw—though familiarized with the general routine of
business—writing legible hands, and competent to per-
form the ordinary calculations of accountants, to be
qui lifted as practical book-keepers for the pe formance
of their duties in the counting-lum.-e ? Or, in o he
words, where is a supply of practical aoeonntanl
to the demand, to be obtained? To this we unhe i ai
ingly reply, They can only be taught, trained and
qualified by practical accountants, who understand the
entire routine of the counting-house, its duties and re-
quirements. Hence, no literary institution, scho 1 or
college, ever did produce a single practical accountant,
oompe ent to assume the charge of a sot of books, upon
the ordinary class and text book plan of instruction.

But if inexperienced theoretical teachers fail to supply
the counting-house with practical book-keeper, and ihe
demand for such services induce experienced practical
accountants to adopt teaching as a profession—if they
organize an institution, with all the facilities known in

the actual performance of their duties—if they teach
young gentlemen, of good burines habits, to perform
their duties just as they have been taught, and use the
eiaot forms and auxiliaries approved and adopted by
our leading mercantile houses—e;uiy any intelligent
business man question their ability to produce just as
thorough practical accountants as those raised in the
counting-house? Equally obvious wi.l it appear to
every unprejudiced, ob-eving business mm, that if a
gantleman, of good businees habits, ba required to take
a, Bl rtter, containing every variety of entry that can
possibly occur in the ’’counting-house,” and put it
through Cm its proper shape) the Cash Book, Journal
ind Ledger, and give all the reasons involved in the
opening, journalizing, pa-tiug, taking off the monthly
rrials. and finally in the clewing of the Books, hi must
be competent to propeily open, successfully conduct, and
aorrectly close any set of Books, under all and every cir-

In this particular the operations of Jones’ Commercial
Oolle^e are peculiar; instead of placing in the hands of
hhe pupil a treatise (such as Bennett’s or Colt’s Bjok-
Keeping) containing lectures, rules, Ac., to memorize or
to copy, a practical book keeper demonstrates the legi-
timate design of Debit and Credit, and then brings those
principles to bear upon actual business transactions, such
.is occur in every counting-house. The student being
first taught the true nature of the relation that exists
oetwce.i the Merchant, the Saliaman and the Book-kcp-
ar, copies his Biottor, journalizes, poets, takes his month-
ly Trial Balances, &c., and proceeds in the practical dis-
obarge of his duties as though hs were conducting a set
of Books in an extensive establishment.

The practicability of this course, its superiority over
all others, and its perfect adaptation to the making of
thorough Accountants, have been fuily tested in this com-
munity during the last thirteen years. Hundreds of
young gentlemen out of empljyment, mechanics unable
to follow their pursuits, Sa.esmen, Second Clerks, Ac,
have been qualified, for the Counting-house and Steatn-
b jat C erkship, and placed in situations worth $600,
$800, $900, $1200 and $1500 per annum—to whom per-
sonal reference will be given by calling upon the Prin-
cipal, at the Book-Keeping department; but for the con-
venient of thoie who may desire a more comple e and
extensive outline of the plan of instruction, or a personal
interview with those who can speak from personal expe-
rience, he begs leave to refer to the Report of tho fol-
lowing Practical Accountants.

Report of Practical Accountants.

The undersigned, pupils of Jonathan Jones, believ-
ing a more general knowledge of his peculiar mode of
imparting instruction would be of public utility, and en-
able every young man, of good business habits, to realize
i hj importance of taking a thorough course of Double-
Entry Bcok-Keeping in this College, before entering up-
on a business career, take this method of informing tho^o
who may not be acquainted with the deugn of this In-
stitution, and wish to acquire a practical knowledge of
accounts, tnat the plan of instruction adopted differs es-
sentiaily from that ordinarily used in schools and col-
lege-?. Instead of memorizing a set of arbitrary rule*,
and studying long dissertations upon the theory of Book-
K.eping, the young gentkman is at once introduced to
tho practical discbarge of an accountant’s duties, by
transcribing his Day Book, journalizing, posting, taking
his monthly trials, &c. Thus ho proceeds as though he
were in charge of aset of Books in an extensive establish-

“Year after year (in epitomized forms) he continues
the opening, conducting and dosing of Books under all
the variety of circumstances that can possibly occur; he
beholds himself a merchant, with limited resources; he
enters into numerous speculations, but, finally, encoun-
ters extensive losses and is foreclosed with heavy insol-
vency—he then becomes associated with a capitalist in
busine;.?, and resumes his accustomed duties as an ac-

In conclusion permit us to state, that a great number
of Mr. Jones’ pupils are in charge of Books in responsi-
ble stations, as practical accountants, in this city with
whom-many of us are personally acquainted : from the
manner in which they discharge their duties as practical
and accomplished Book-keepers, and from what we know
ourselves, we do most unequivocally declare it as our opi-
nion, that as thorough and perfect a knowledge of the
accountant’s duties can be obtained in this School, as it
is possible to receive in any counting-house in any num-
ber of years—the operations being the same to all in-
tents and purposes. For further particulars, apply to us,

Steamboat book-keeping.

From the simplicity of tho practical forms now in use
for Cash Book, Freight Book, Passage Book, &c.—the
limited variety of transactions and uniform manner of
adjusting cacti respective Trip’s work, in the ordinary
routine, consequent upon doing a cash business exclusive-
ly—many have been led to suppose Steamboat Book-

keeping to bo a very simple and easy thing. While to
the thorough accountant and experienced steamboa
clerk, such is the fact, in a great majority of eases tin
precise reverse holds good. That is—Steamboat Book-
Keeping, without a knowledge of the Mercantile, is more
complex, varied and difficult thnn Mercantile Book-
Keeping in the ordinary pursuits—and why should (I not
bo so? Steamboats incur responsibilities, contract debts
and deliver goods without pay, just as merchants do;
they often speculate just as m rchantsspeculate, and no:
unfrequently negotiate bills of exchange, lo “raise tin
wind,” or “to make ends meet, tindercircum thoes that
would make a “Levee merchant” b’ush. I have known
a gentleman to purchase a steamboat without a dollar
in band, drop her down to the wharf, “stick up his shin-
jild” for N. 0., get a full cargo, step into one of our of-
fices, effect an insurance on his ’-freight list,” negotiate
a bill of exchange on his agent in Jsi. 0. to pay charges
and outfit here, make a successful trip or two, pay for
his boat, and in sixty days on the look—out for a similar
speculation; such, and three times as much more of a
kindnd nature, not unfrequently falls to the lot of a
man but partially familiarized with the management of
accounts, to blunder through. Understanding the na-
ture of one account, he has left him an alternative, that
is, to throw all transactions into his Cash Account, Reca-
pitulate, and hand over a “Cash Memorandum” to his

This clerk turns over a new leaf, counts the actual
oaah on board, and commences his work on “a clean
.-beet,” but pays no further attention to the “Cash Me-
morandum” fit being no part of his business.) The m>
rnoiandum is soon misplaced or lost, debts due the boat
remain unbulUwted, bi Is against her commence coming
in—of which there is no entry in the books. The season
advancing, and the receipts falling off, the owners eon-
dude to “tie up;” whereupon the following interesting
conversation takes place, viz:

Owners. Well, Capt. ——, what’s the word?

Captain. Gentl men, wehavehad a fine run, a splen-
did business, carried more freight and passengers, made
better time, burned less wood, carried a smaller crew,
had the best steward in the trade—indeed, gentlemen, it
is acknowledged by all hands in port and out of ]x>rt,
high water or low water, that she is emphatically “the

Owners. Good morning, Mr ——, (clerk); what’s the
good news with you?

Clerk. Good morning, gentlemen. “Right side up!”
Only give this boat a fair chance, and she’ll stack you
up a cord of it.”

Owners. What do you mean by a fair chance Mr—?

Clerk. Let the owners square off old debts up to date.
put in an extra boiler, paint up and put her in first rate
limning order, and let Capt.——manage affairs to suit
his own notion.

Owners. How much short will the boat be, after pay-
ir g i-ff M far as >h> is n w allo?

Clerk. Can’t tell exactly: indeed, a Philadelphia
lawyer couldn’t tell, from the manner in which there
books have been kept, up to the time of my taking
change of them; bills are coming in every trip but, so
far as known, about fourteen hundred dollars will be the

Owners. Wei ! Well! well!! This will do pretty fair for
“green hands” at steamboating. A splendid boat—a
fire and popular captain—an economical steward—had
a splendid run, and made lots of money—but no cash on

This might be thought a fancy sketch by some, (with
a few thousand dollars in pure cash) just ready to em-
bark in a steamboat speculation; but it is our read and
candid opinion, that if “an infallible medium” were to
issue a “narrative.” containing the History of steam-
boating and the Lives of steamboat owners, (especially
of those so unskilled in the management of accounts.) the
facts disclosed would prove that hundreds of captains,
pilot’s, engineers, etc., etc., had been ruined or rendered
bankrupt, and thousands of dollars squandered, by in-
competent, inexp rienced and careless steamboat clerks. But we are bappy to know that an important change i

Commercial Law.

The practicability cf adopting Corurnercial Law as an
important branch in a liberal and useful education will
be apparent to ail, and the absolute necessity of making
it a constituent part of “a business man’s education"
grows out of the nature of the relation, that eommercinl
usages and the mercantile profession sustain to the pro-
fession of law.

If R geirl. man choose to adopt the mercantile profes-
sion, Mi’oulil he not know what constitutes a bargain in
the eye of the law? with nil that relates to a contract of
sale’/ how far, in making a bargain, he may rightly
avail him If rf knowledge, which he knows the other
does not p:wscss, without informing him of it? In other
word.-, should he not know where is the dividing line
between f ir dealing and cheating?

If a merchant buy goods in a distant market, should
he not understand lib own rights, and also the duties and
responsibilities of common carriers?

If (as most prudent merchants do) he effect an insu-
rance upon bis goods—if, in the regular course of trans-
portation, or while in th: warehouse, or when on sale in
the store, those goods are subject to various perils—is it
not absolutely necessary for him to understand his own
duties, and a’so the responsibilities of the Underwriters?

If, to meet the demands for an increase of capital, oi
to supply themselves with additional counsel or assist-
ance in trade, merchants find it convenient to associate in partnership, should they not therefore be
well acquainted with their respective legal rights, duties
and guarantees?

Indeed, the two professions are so intimately connect-
ed, and their reciprocal duties so marked, as to puzzle the
intelligent business man to determine which is the great-
est “lioor,” or the most unfortunate victim—a lawyer,
unskilled in I he management of accounts, acting as
“Master in Chancery,” or a merchant, unfamiiiiimed
with the laws of trade, embarking in various complicat-
ed speculations or incurring high responsibilities. -Ah!"
remarks a casual observer, “would you require every
merchant to be educated for a lawyer? “I answer, (says
Jud^e Walker,) that while there “is a vast field of law
which I would advise the merchant not to meddle with,
I would have him study the general principles of mer-
cantile law, for the same reason that 1 would have a me-
chanic familiar with the tools of his trade. Indeed t’o
essential do I deem this kind of kriowledge to every mer-
chant, that, were I educating my son for that pn fission,
I would set apart at least two years of his noviciate ex-
p-eesly for this study ; nay rnort—so much do the two
professions run into each other, ejpjciaJy in commercial
cities, that if I were educating my son for the law, 1
should desire to have him spend at least the same period
in a good counting-room. I sp:ak now from my own
ional experience. After having occupied more
than the usual lime in preparing to practice law, when
I entered upon Ibe praeuee, the most serious want I en-
countered was the want of a more accurate knowlxlgt
of those customs of merchant*, which constitute an Iwpc
a part of mercantile law. But while I make this con
fession, let me say, on the other hand, ’hat a som whsi
extensive p"ofesstona tntercour.-e v,\ h the Inercanmi
clnsa. has often caused me to fe I artouished at, theii
profound ignorance of their legal righto and duties, al-
though to that very ignorance I was indebted for th
reel of my professionnl services."

N. B.—The foregoing prices are founded upon a prin-
ciple of charging a gentleman for “instruction impart-
ed,” and not for tllc; 1’I11C uo m;*y attend, or the course
for which he may be “registered ;” and a deduction, in
all oases; will be mule for "previous knoictedgc." T\
a young gentleman, writing a legible hand, a deduction
will be^nade of five dollars, to one competent to per-
form the ordinary calculations of an accountant, a de-
duction will ba made of ten dollars; and in like propor-
tion for what may be known in Book-Keeping and
Commercial law.

An opportunity is thus given (to those who write a
legible hand and can make the ordinary arithmetical
o Initiations taught in common school-) of obtaining a
practical business education, for fif y dollar.-.

The time required to complete a full collegiate course
wil. not ex c d sixteen weeks, and may not require more
hon twelve; tha hours of iustruotion, in the respective
departments, being so arranged as to give eaoh gentle
in i.n a command of his entire time; 6.U progress will
t lerefiire, de^nd upon his application to studies and his
capacity for receiving instruction.

One, somewhat ’-posted up” touching Men and things. would, at first view naturally enough presume it but an easy and pleasing task, to teach another a tiling, which that person’s own Professional duties—the duties be owes to his Creditors—the duties he owts to his i’ami y as well as his own personal interest and reputation require him to know. Acting under suih mistaken n dions, and from a well matu’ed conviction, that none but a thorough Accountant, himself skilled in the prao- tioal duties and personally familiarized with the entire routine of the Counting-llouse. could suecssf’ully train young genii men for the perfo-mance of their duties as practical Book-Keepers, the Principal of this Institution KpjncJ Jones’ Commercial School of St. Louis, early in 184’, Vv0$ A nkw akd stkictly oltkilxal plan of im- parting instruction. Although that plan differs, in every essential particular, from those of its pradeoetton aod Ootemporanos, who had attempted, or, were endea- voring through the use of Bennett’s, Colt’s, l’ostei’s, and other works on B.ok-Keeking, to qualify young gentle- men as practical Acroun’ants, and invariably failed in their efforts, this school for along time seemed destined to share the same fate, but of late years things a mb to have changed, and the no’ions if business men have changed with them. Tb n it was nnivenaUy main- t lined that young gent] nun phouW go to tlie (’imnting- lltuse in orde- to be educat.d for btis’ne s pursui’S. Now it id pretty generally held t> be eanwnoiallj nece ary, that young gentium n be educated for the Counting-House just atmuofa so at for any other proftmioa mpursuits. For thirt e. c nsccu ie years we have lab. r ad in this City for the tconmpli bment irf b single object viz: The formation and permanent establishment of a reliable reputation as a Public Accountant, and Successful Educator. That has been our highest aim and this ur only Pn f ssion. How far we have succeeded in making an impression u>oii the business, community, we Lave our “Liviug Epistles” to say: mure than two hunircd of whom in this City are recognised as practical Book-Keepers and receiving as ample remuneration for heir serviees as those who have been qualified under any other circumstances. Our Rooms are open to the pub io liming business hours, and we have at all times adeavorcd to cultivate the friendly acquaintance (f Practical Accountants, knowing lull well that they only are fully prepared to appreciate what is if utiliiy. and reprobate that which is usiless in a business tducation, md we say without fear of contradiction that n ienced business man. or Practical Accountant, c n visit iur Rooms and become acquainted with our peculiar mode of imparting instruction and detect the flight Jifferenoe between our operations and those of tbe Counting House in which he was educated, and notwithstanding all this, there are some good men in thiscommuni y, gentlemen of reputed intelligence and high moral character, who are deservedly popular in their profession as Practical Accountants, that think they are doing thtii young friends a kindly office by indiscriminate y branding Commercial Schools and ColLges “Humbcgs"1I i(’or such we have never held unkind f clings.

Epistolary Penmanship.

Bt S. D.Iiavden, .

To write a plain, legible, chaste and uniform “Letfcer-
Hand,” is a dehirabb nccomplishinent in the eduoalinu
“f every Lady. But how few acquire this invaluable
art in our best Engli-h and Ciauwcttl High Schools?
This is owing to the fact that Teachers themseh
not given the subject the attention requisite to innsti r 1
praeucai system, snob ns mny be taught with suceew.
Many mite beautifully themstlves, who utterly fii! in
an attempt to enable others to execute with simi ur eiise
and cleganc., and it may be asked, why witsof We
imlusiliitinglv r. ply, their system are to them inlu’/ivr.
Penmanship, as a maebaoieal nrt, is the result i>fn com-
bined motion of the arm, the wrist, and th QngeiF. No
one but an artist can be taught to write by imitation
alone, while all may 1l> taught a beautiful hand by 0

vinced u- tlmi i’ is but :i” ea.-y task to teach a person a
Ching which it is his interest to know, or to enlist the co-
operation of n class deservedly popular for thcii enligbt-
ned liberality and qnl.igtd views of jrogrcssive im-
provemeDts and practical r. forms.

The only questions with us have been, Is it practicable
and of public utility 1 Can we accomplisn. the object
with credit to ourse.vcs and with profit to others ?

Is it practible and of public utility? From
well digested and universal y conceded prt mises, we an-
bicipate but little difficulty in maintaining the affiimatrr.
against thu possibility of Fuooefful contradiction. The
leading detign of education be ng to qualfy its recipients
for a practical performance of the duties of life, it only
remains for us to saw that many of the duties of life
devolving upon ladies, require a, knowledge of accounts,
and we shall have accomplished our object.

For us, even in ihidcountry, to see a Lady, as a natural
guardian, aesuwe the administration uf a large estatt,
otm tea no unusual surprise, though the may be totally
ignorent touching, the management of accounts, and un-
familiaiized with a general business routine. Waiving
the numerous embarrassments, always consequent upon
a tiansition from the Control of one kind of business to
li: i 11 another, so different in Us nature and require-
ments, “hat most be the r su.t ? Again, if the accu
lnulation .n of that estate required yean of persevering
application to business, with tact, talent, and practical
knowledge of accounts, is it. presumable that a lady
wholly destitute of a “business education,” can Succees-
fuily and profitably direct its affairs? Do not exper-
ience and obsrvation too frequently prove that she and
hera lie*-ome >m easy prey to “Interested Financiers,” for
the want of this very species of infoimation ? We only
,1 sire to direct public attention to a few of the leading
p incit-lee which have actuated us in the commencement
f ;.n enterprise, though uew in this countiy, none the
irs important, as experience has els.wh^re proved. It is
no unusual oocuiTenoa in Philadelphia, Liveipocl, or
Paris, to we a lady of the highest respectability in full
charge of a set of books; and why thou d it not be the
ease in this ci:y, where a. number of ladies have distin-
guished ihrui-vlvi s in the mercantile community, as
quully buoo a 1.1 as gentlemen, in oouunasding the
trade and in fettering their means.

Can we acc0mp1iH llli: object with cremt to
oii^e: vks and tkokii’to 0tbkb8? Although, during
ill ’ [1:1st ten years, we have been often sollicittd by
Indus f r instructing in Book-Eeeping, until the present
wv have Invariably declined, cwing mainly to two

First. Our efforts to form a reputation at a successful
tencher was an experiment in the estimation of the
business community of questionable utility, owing al-
gether to the fact tnat numerous unqualified and inex-
perienced teachers had extorted large sums I r pretend-
ing to d” what they could not accomj li-h. It was a
most unive sally dolared, that no one oould be qualified
in a schoi 1 f-;r the practical peifurmanes of an account-
aot’a dute

We were once four months in this city without recciv-
a tingle pupil, and we state nothing more than an
examination of our oatalogne, for the last four years,
will prove to be Strictly true, when we thus publicly de-
clare, that we have compelled this community lo ac-
knowledge the genuineness of oar credentials at a Pro-
fessional Teacher, and to uvwi amply and sa tafaotorilj
compensate us for our services while doing so : and we
might furthermiire state, (did not m d irty 1 irbid,) tha,
we have revolutumiecd popular sentiment upon tbtfaob- jjot, and eBtahlwhed an institution upon a penoaneni
hiisis for the education of gentlemen for business pur-
suits, not BurpaaBed, if equaled, by any Commercial Col-
lege in the United States.

And how have we accomplished our objeei?

We bave taken mechanics f 0111 the Workshop, and
lAtemn m from behind the counter, and qualified them as
luntants fur th.- situation they now hold—
m ) e than one hundred and eighty of whom ;:re n w in
bis city, performing their duty Jurf as practically, and
receiviug just as good salaiieu as those raised in the
Counting-house. And it is our unwavering opinion, that
we can ummplishjust as satisfactory retulta Ly the in-
struction of ladies.

Secondly. We have not hitherto had the facilities
l’t.r titling up such apaitmtnts as we thought would bt
in keeping with the class, of pupils wLu Would be
likely btnefitted by such iiutiuctioi.; I ut we flatter cur-
stlves in the belief that ;:11 sutb cXjections will disap-
pear upon a vitit to the “Young Ladies’ Cotlegiate In-
stitue. The rooms are entheiy digetumcua, and the
hours of instruction are to am n^ed nt not to cunfiin
with “Jines’ Comintrcial College,” and “fcttwart’e
tsathematical Institute."

Ladies may enter for the above courses separately or
the entire number; but in no ease \wll payuittit be ex-
acted for any but the branches in which tue lady may
nave received instruction.

The Tuition Fees in the respective Departments are
the same as charged in Jones’ Ceuimercii.l College and

and uniformly payable in advance, ’ihe importance of
Liii rule wi.l appear evident Ui all, as our charge is not
