Great attention is paid to the morals and manners of my pupils, who all reside in my family, and form a part of it. None others are admitted. The number ia limited, forming a aelect society within it-aeW; not too numerous for a proper and Bcinute attention to each pupil, enabling me to adapt the instruction and discipline to their respective dis-positioni and characters.  The rise in the price of all articlea of consumption necessarily increases the exj^ense of such an establishment, and calls for a corresponding increase of price. This will be for all scholars entering hereafter, one hundred and eighty dollars, payable half-yearly in advance, for the scholastic year often months, for tuition, board, fire, candles, and washing. No pupil will be admitted for a shorter period than the scholaatic year; and there will be no deduction for absence. Each pupil furnishes his own towrls, mattress, and bedding; or a separate charge of seven dollars is made for mattress and bedding.  Such are the outlines of my seminary, which being established within a short distance from the District of Columbia, I hope to avail myaelf of many of the advantages of proximity to a city; at the same time, to escape, as far as practicable, some of the disadvantages resulting from training the youthful mind in the midkt or in the immediate vicinity of a town.  This institution will be open for the admission of new pupils on the 15th of January, 1837.  WM. BRENT, Jr.  Ossian Hall, near Alexandria, Dec. 38, 1836.  I beg leave to refer to—  Wm. T. T.
