In the English Language a particular attention is paid to accuracy in Ipelling, and all the pnm'nar rules, and the grtartlt pains tak - .n to rna - 1 1 c - rhe pupil to read with a true pronunciation, nd a due regard to the liop. In Penmanship a like careful regard is - rrrd to write ith freedom nnd eofe, from examples felctd from rh a'.ult penmen ; and when fufhciently initiated into this u.'efulart, they are, ir.ftead of being confined loa fojmii copy line, exercifed in tran - fc ibin tpiitohry 'nd other precedents, from the molt eiteeme'd Fne,liih authors, and their own abilities occtjtonally put to trial, in inditing and im proving thtir taile land fancy for ornamental Ihokes in penmanfhip, their performances examined and coirc'cled in their prefence, and every endeavour put in paclice to make them fenfible of, and avoid all improprieties in dic"fion, and all inaccuracies in writing ; and in Arithmttick they are well grounded in the tables and principles of each rule. An edifying talk will be given, each time they go from fchool, to be rehearfed oh' their next attendance, and a part of one day in the week will be appropriated for a general repetition ; and for their more fpeedy improvement under his tuition, their bool, copies, pens, Sec. mall be fo prepared, in the fchool intervals, that they may, on their next itt - ndancr, apply direclly to bnfinefs. His Public School will abfolutely be limited to twenty p'pils, in the morning, and the like number in the afternoon ; a regulation which will enahle him to do the preatelt jurHce to each, and whereby hey may make a much greater proficiency than they probably wculd by attending a whole day at a numerous fchool. School hours from half after Tight to half after Eleven, in the morning, and fioni Toto Five, in the afttrnoon.
