FEMALE SCHOOL, AT MANSFIELD, NEAR PETERSBURG, VIRGINIA. Having opened a School at this place for the education of our daughters, we are desirous of having a few others as companions in their studies. The number, however, shall in no case exceed TWENTY, experience having taught us that much evil arises from the collection of young females into large boarding schools. We have observed that jealousies, rivalries, evil speaking, and all the wicked tempers of the heart, will arise even where there are a few together; and, to keep them down, there must be a constant and watchful supervision, which cannot be expected in large seminaries.
We have no public examinations, (holding them to be deceptive, and injurious to solid improvement, and the occasions on which bold ignorance and fool-hardiness most generaily outstrip and bear the palm froin the best, though modest and bashful scholar,) but try to educe study from the pleasure of learning and the love of knowledge.
We utterly discard the foolish and destructive practice, followed only to fatter parents, of attempting to Leach every thing, even the abstrusest sciences, in a few weeks, to tender and immature minds, scarcely' able to endure the labor of the plainest studies. Our object is to give a thorough and expanded instruction in ihe main branches of a liberal education. When this is accomplished the pupil may advance with some chance of success and some pleasure, into the languages and higher branches of science, which we instruct them in so soon as they are prepared to attend to them.

HUGH A. GARLAND, Late of Mecklenburg, Va. Having placed one of my daughters the last five months with Mr. and Mrs. Garland, it affords me pleasure to embrace this opportunity of testifying to their ability and faithfulness as instructors, and to the
parental care exercised over those entrusted to their charge. I paid Mansfield several visits during the session, and always found my child entirely contented. Indeed I have never seen a better regulated family. All the young ladies, (and there were ten or twelve besides Mrs. Garland's daugh. ters,) seemed perfectly at home-lo be as it were a family among themselves--and as cheerful and happy as they well could be. The improvement of iny daughter was fully as great as I either expected or calculated on. Richmond, Angust 23, 1839.
