THE PICTURE OF EDINBURGH;
Containing a Description of the City and its Environs, with a par-

ticular Account of every remarkable object and Public Establishment in the Scottish METROPOLIS. By J. STARK.

The design of this work is to give an account of every thing connected with the Scottish Metropolis and its Environs, worthy of the attention of Strangers, or interesting to its Inhabitants; and, from the sources from which the information has been derived, the Publishers flatter themselves that it will be found superior in many respects to any other publication on the same subject.

MRS GRANT's ESTABLISHMENT FOR THE EDUCATION

OF

YOUNG LADIES.

The success which has rewarded MBS GRANT's exertions during the several years she has been engaged in the Tuition of Youth, encourages her to continue to devote her time and attention to the instruction of the younger part of her own Sex, in the various Branches of Liberal and Polite Education.

Principles of Moral and Religious conduct are steadily and attentively instilled into the minds of her young Pupils, and every possible care bestowed in promoting their intellectual advancement and improvement. From the system adopted at Park-House, and the arrangements which are made in the superintendance, Mrs GRANT is enabled, not only carefully to watch over the Health and Morals of her Pupils, but likewise to excite them to emulation in the acquisition of useful knowledge, by distinguishing, and particularly rewarding, the proficiency of each, as well as to gain information in regard to the various dispositions of their minds, by encouraging them individually, as they deserve it, to her confidence and friendship. From the age of Fourteen, she introduces them occasionally into Society, if desired, with a view to the formation of their manners. Mrs GRANT thus endeavours, in the plan which she pursues, to combine all the essentially useful and solid acquirements with the more feminine and ornamental accomplishments, so as to ensure to her young Friends an opportunity of acquiring an Education, in every respect liberal and complete, and such as may tend to render them, in after life, both rational and intelligent, as well as agreeable companions.

The salubrity of the air at Croydon--the beauty of the surrounding Scenery, and it proximity to London-are advantages deserving attention, and too well known to make it necessary to dwell upon them.

MASTERS of the first eminence attend at the Establishment.
