JOHN EVANS, A. M.
LATE of THE UNIVERSITY of EDINBURGH,
UNDERTAKEs to board and educate YOUNG GENTLEMEN in the
ENGL1sh, LATIN, and GRErk LANGUAGEs; including also Re A D
ING, WRITING, ARITH METIC, MERCHANTs’ Accounts, ENG lish GRAMMAR and CoM Position, GeoGRAPHY, CHR onology, HisToRy, Civil and Natural, Use of the Globes, the MATHEM Atics, Theoretical and Practical, together with other branches of polite and useful Learning. This course of Education will be accommodated to the Age and Taste of the Pupil, keeping in view the particular sphere of Life in which he may be destined to move. The advantages of a limited number of PUPILs are obvious to all. The acquisition of Knowledge is facilitated by the TutoR's own immediate inspection, whilst the number of the Pupils is sufficient for the excitement of emulation, without hazarding their morals by those vices which are too frequently attendant on larger schools, notwithstanding the utmost vigilance of their masters. But on these advantages accruing from a limited number. of Pupils, it is not necessary to expatiate. The enlightened Parent is apprized of them. The affectionate Parent wants no inducement to embrace them. As to the treatment of THE PUPILs, the utmost Attention is paid to their Health and Comfort, whilst the greatest vigilance is exercised over their Morals and Improvement. Parents who honour MR. EwANs with the charge of their sons, may rely on his exertions to secure to them Knowledge and Virtue, the two great objects of Education. “Education (says a modern writer) is an apprenticeship for the employments of Life. What are these employments? Good Husbands and Wives—Good Parents and dutiful Children—affectionate Relations and Friends, useful Members of Communities, and benevolent Citizens of the World.”
The expenses incurred by Parents in the education of their offspring will never be regretted. A blessing of greater magnitude cannot be rendered them by any earthly benefactor. The minds of Youth, imregnated with knowledge and with virtue, amply repay those who H. been the means of furnishing them with such treasures. Into the parental bosom it will be returned an hundredfold. The seeds of felicity, thus sedulously sown at an early period of life, promise an abundant harvest. The Pupils have access to a select LIBRARY. On every useful topic, and especially in the department of History, those productions will be pointed out to them, which both for style and sentiment are the most deserving of attention. By the early acquisition of a discrimi. nating taste, not only time and expense are saved, but the improvement of the individual is effectually promoted. Two Guineas will be expected from every Pupil at his first coming, towards of the expenses attending the purchase of books. A small charge also is made for the use of an elegant Apparatus, including an Electrical Machine, Air-pump, Galvanic Trough, System of Mechanics, Orrery, Optical Models, &c. by which are performed the leading experiments !o. PHILosop HY. Terms—Forty Guineas per Annum, which, considering the extensive circle of education which the planembraces, cannot be deemed immoderate. An additional charge of Ten Guineas per Annum, is made to a few ELDER Pupils who, (if desired) upon finishing their Education, have a Room assigned them where they sit together, and where Lectures are given them on Log IC, AND R HETor Ic ; MoRAL PHILoso PHY ; AND EVIDENCES OF THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION. The Room which these Young Gentlemen occupy is pleasantly situated, and is hung round with MAPs and CHARTs, as well as enriched with a select number of volumes, calculated to facilitate the purposes of their Education. ach Young Gentleman is expected to bring with him a whitehandled Knife and Fork, a Silver Spoon, and half a dozen Towels. No Entrance required.—Payment Half Yearly. N. B. FRENch, DANcing, DRA wing, &c., if desired, will be taught by proper Masters, at the usual Terms. There are Two Vacations—a Month at Christmas, and Six Weeks at Midsummer. A Quarter's Notice is requested when any young Gentleman is to be removed from School.

MR.

We cannot lay down this interesting volume without recommending it to our readers' attention. Its hearty support in the cause of Yor Tue, and the admirable lessons it conveys to the mind, render it highly useful to the young student, while the variety of its contents, and the superiority of its Extracts, will repay the attention of those at A MQRE Anvanced age who may think their dignity compromised by reading a work chiefly calculated for the improvement of the rising generation. —European Magazine, Oct. 1818.
