NEW YORK CITY.

-:0:

This INSTITUTION, which has enjoyed a high and wide reputation ever since its foundation in 1838, has now received from the Legislature of the State of New York a regular College Charter. The aim and purpose of the President and Trustees will now be to raise the standard of Ladies' education, and to afford the best facilities for acquiring a thorough and complete training, not only in those studies and accomplishments which are generally comprised in female education, but also in the classics and physical sciences ; in short, to bring the course of study as nearly as possible to the level of that of our young men's colleges.

With this view, provision has been made for the pursuit of the Greek, Latin, German, and French Languages. The classical course is made optional after the close of the Sophomore year, so that pupils desirous of pursuing more fully other branches, either in modern languages or natural science, may have the opportunity of doing so.

The fine arts form a separate and independent department of study, under the personal charge of Mr. F. B. CARPENTER, and the supervision of Mr. HUNTINGTON, President of the National Academy of Design. Drawing in outline forms part of the regular course, but painting in oil or water-colors is not included, and is to be prosecuted by special studies.

Physiology, and several allied branches, are to be formed into the Department of Home Philosophy, the aim of which shall be to teach, on the widest scale possible in such institution, the applications of science to the conduct of every-day life.

In conformity with the plan in the OLD RUTGERS INSTITUTE, the COLLEGE will still maintain an Academic and a Preparatory School, at which children and young girls may study under the same system and influences as those of the COLLEGE itself.

The Terms in the Preparatory Department are $100 per year ; in the Academic, $150, and in the College, $200, with the exception of the Senior year, when the expenses of graduation are added to the annual rate, so as to make it $250.

For further information, application may be made in person or by letter to HENRY M. PIERCE, LL. D.,
