GRAMMAR takes the prominent position in the following pages; and in the Second Volume a complete Treatise on NATURAL GEOGRAPHY will occupy a similar place. For the preparation of these Treatises, the highest available talent has been engaged. While in the Grammar Class the student learns to express his thoughts with propriety, he may (to quote the words of a self-taught correspondent), “in the Papers on Puysi. OLOGY, find information on the natural laws he ought to obey ; from the Articles on the Physical History or Man, gain a knowledge of his race; from the Tales he may obtain the outlines of History; and from the TRAVELS, an idea of interesting spots in other lands." The delightful articles by the deservedly popular author of our Papers on Zoology, will unfold the wonders of the Animal Kingdom; while the intimate nature of the inorganic world is taught by our Professor of CHEMISTRY. The appearances and changes in the Heavens are described and explained under the head of “CELESTIAL PHENOMENA;" while the aspect of the Earth, and the variations of its atmosphere, are treated in corresponding papers on TERRESTRIAL PHENOMENA.

· The Mathematical Classes, under the able superintendence of Mr. Reynolds, have been eminently successful ; while the competition for Prizes in the General Department has far exceeded our expectations,

Not only to gain success, but to deserve it, will, we trust, be the object of ourselves as well as of our pupils; we both have prizes to win the good opinion of each other. Our Pupils have already thanked us; it is now our turn to express our gratitude to them. This we do heartily; and in doing so, are earnest for the future.
