Thb Pittsboso' Academy. We are mufch pleased to know that the Pittsboro' Pittsboro' Academy is acquiring the reputation reputation thitt it so much deserves, and that pupils are attending it from several several of the adjacent counties. On last Mondav we were pleased to meet Mr. W. H. Watkins, one of Randolph's enterprising manufacturers, who had come here to enter two of his children at our academy, and we hear of others cominsr. And there is no reason whv our town should not now have one of the most prosperous schools in the State, for certainly there cannot be found a more accomplished educator than the present mincinal of our J. x academy. Our climate is remarkablv healthy, board is cheap, we have a . , -. -. -. -. ... moral coramnuity, and everything is favorable for building up a large school. Pittsboro' has been famous for its good schools for nearly a century. century. The elder Binghaui (grand father of Maj. Robert Bingham) taught here about the be2rinnfrir of the present century, and since his day other distinguished educators have taught here, among whom were Love- Love- joy, doss, McGilvary, Brantly, &c. Many nroniinpnt. rifirpns of onr SfnlA received their academic education at this place, among them being two Governors, Owen and Manly. We hope that some of the present pupils of the old academy may become as distinguished in their careers.
