REM ARKS. This Institution has been in operation but little over a year. The Principal has been successfully engaged in con- ducting a Female Seminary in Lexington and a neighboring town or the last fifteen years. It is his purpose to make the Institution over which he presides, permanent, and of commanding excellence. No pains or expense will be spared to furnish the greatest facilities for imparting instruction. The studies of pupils will be adapted to their capacity and progress, and the course of instruction in every department peculiarly thorough. Each Department will have its own responsible head, while the Principal, in addition to the duty of personal instruction, will exercise a watchful oversight of all the parts, so as to give efficiency and unity to the whole system. To aid in the accomplishment of this object, the Principal has engaged the services of Rev. EDWARD WRIGHT and LADY, who will enter the Institution at the opening of the ensuing half session, to commence on the first Monday of February, 1847. It will be the aim to train the mind to patient and independent investigation, which can only be secured by great thoroughness in the first principles, com- mencing with the simplest elementary forms of truth, and advancing to a complete and liberal view of the whole sub- ject, suited to the intellectual capacity and development of the pupil. As a general rule, boarding scholars will be expected to reside in the family of the Principal. When all the appli- cants cannot be accommodated by the Principal, as has been the case for the last year, he desires to be consulted, and will cheerfully recommend suitable boarding houses. Long experience has shown that this is the only course which can result in advantage, either to the teacher or scholar. The Principal cannotbecome responsible for the improvement of scholars unless they are so situated, that he can in some meas- [ 10 ] ure, direct their associations and employments, out of school as welf as in it. The intercourse of the pupils with each other, and with their teachers, will, on all occasions, be con- formed with the usages of refined and educated society. The government, both in the family of the Principal and the School, will be strictly parental, aiming at the cultivation of the conscience and the heart. Parents and guardians will be furnished with a monthly report exhibiting the scholarship and deportment of each pupil. ANNUAL COMMENCEMENT AND VACATIONS. The Annual Commencement will hereafter uniformly oc- cur on the last Friday of June, in each year. The closing week will be occupied with a thorough examination of al the classes, and will terminate with an Anniversary Address. The Anniversary Address for the current year, will be de- livered on the day of June, 1847, at 8 o'clock, P. M. in the second Presbyterian Church. The Senior Class will then receive such testimonials of scholarship, as are usually conferred upon young ladies who complete the prescribed course. The Principal Vacation begins immediately after the commencement and continues until the first Monday in September. The Academic Year consists therefore of one session of ten months. Scholars will, according to this ar- rangement, pursue their studies continuously through the year, without any reorganization of classes. There will be a recess of two weeks near the middle of the session, usual- ly embracing the Christmas week. No pupil will be admitted for a less time than one session, and we wish it understood that in order to insure the highest benefits of the Institute, it is indispensable that pupils biegi with us early, and continue through the course without in. terruption. In view of such advantage we have added a Primary Department, at a reduced price, to which the en- tire time of one of the teachers will be devoted, affording peculiar facilities to such as may enter it. C I RC UL AR. Deeply impressed with- the importance and practicability of elevating the standard of Female Education, I have been endeavoring for some time, in connexion with a few friends, who, as well as myself, saw and deplored the evil, to mature a plan for the accomplishment of so desirable an object. It is, I believe, a universally admitted fact, that most of the young ladies of the South and West, close their academic course just at that period when the intellect reaches a matu- rity and development, necessary to a thorough investigation of the more difficult sciences. From this cause, the gradu- ates of our best Female Institutions are only partially edu- cated, To remedy this acknowledged evil, I propose to open a higher department in connexion with the LEXINGTON FEMALE: INSTIrUTE, affording peculiar facilities, which I presume have never been equalled in the West, and rarely if ever surpass- ed in the East. Instruction in this department will be given wholly by lectures. It will consist of two courses, each of eight months continuance, embracing all the higher branch- es of education. This department is intended, mainly for young. ladies who have completed their course in other insti- tutions. Those who attend the double course, and sustain a satisfactory examination, will, at the close, receive a testimo- nial of scholarship in the form of Diploma. The course of lectures will commence on the 2d Mondav of September, 1847, and close the last week of April, 1848. Three lectures will be delivered daily, of one hour each, be- tween 9 A. M., and 12 M., upon which the class will be re- quired to take notes. The afternoon will be spent in writing out more fully, the subjects of the lecture from their own notes taken at the time. The class will also be subjected to a daily examination on the lectures of the previous day. [ 12 ] The following gentlemen have consented to deliver the course: SUBJECTS. LECTURERS.

Natural Theology 4Evidences of Christ'y "' - The course as thus marked out, is extensive and liberal, and cannot fail to exert a decided influence over the female mind, and through that powerful and pervading agency, se- cure the most happy results. Surely such facilities as this department thus organised, will afford, cannot elsewhere be found. Most of the Lecturers, are gentlemen of high intellectual attainments, of long establish- ed reputation, so much so, that it is needless to do more than mention their names. To the citizens of Lexington and the State, and indeed to the entire South and West, we make our appeal. Will you lend your aid in the effort we now make to elevate the standard of Female Education If you wvill, then success will be certain. No pains or expense will be spared on our part, to furnish every facility in the way of suitable buildings, and all needful apparatus. As this department of the LEXINGTON FLALE ImsTrIT will not be opened until September, 1847, we invite corres- pondences with those who favor our object, and desire their daughters to enjoy its advantages. Please address the Prin- cipal of the Institute, Lexington, Ky. Young Ladies in this department, will be allowed the privilege of mingling in society, under proper regulations and restrictions.
