some scientific and practical profession without
pursuing the ancient languages. It embraces a

Mecnanics, Engineering, Chemistry, Astronomy,

Observatory.) Higher Mathematics, etc.

intendence of Prof. G. b.between Stone, , has been com-
pletely reorganized and brought to a high state of
efficiency. Students are admitted to the lowest
clasa thte age of elven years, and to more ad-
vanced classes according to their attainments.
