FULFORD BOARDING SCHOOL IS SITUATED in Montgomery Co. Md., about one mile from SANDY SPRING FRIENDS' MEETING HOUSE TWENTY-EIGHT miles, S.W. of BALTIMORE, TWENTY, N. of WASHINGTON, D.C, THIRTEEN, W. of LAUREL DEPOT on the BALT. & WASH. R Road, and FIFTEEN, S. OF HOOD'S MILL on the BALT. & OHIO R. ROAD.

IT WAS COMMENCED, in 1848, with a small number of pupils, but under the impression, that faithful attention to business would ensure success, in a SITUATION SO FAVORABLE; -unsurpassed for PURE AIR, and PURE WATER, and in a neighborhood, noted for the Intelligence, Morality, and Good Health of its inhabitants.

THE PROGRESS of the school soon surpassed our most sanguine expectations; requiring large additions to the building, &c., which are now so nearly completed, as to furnish ample accommodations, for more than THIRTY BOARDERS. DAY SCHOLARS are not admitted.

THE SCHOOL YEAR Is divided into two unequal Terms, (as shown on the title page,) for the following reasons: 1. A single Term, would bring the Vacation into the latter part of Summer, when the Country is preferred for Health. 2. A Summer Term of five months, includes much weather that is too cool for the summer clothing only. 3. A long Winter Term, for the more difficult studies, with a short Summer Term, for the less difficult, admits of a much better arrangement of the

COURSE OF INSTRUCTION. Reading, Spelling, and Defining; Mental Arithmetic; Penmanship, and Letter-Writting or Composition; Phonography; and Elementary Drawing; receive particular attention throughout the year. In addition, these, are taught,

DURING THE WINTER TERM, English Grammar, and Derivation of Words; Arithmetic, and Book-Keeping; Practical Surveying; Algebra; Plane and Solid Geometry; Demonstrating Surveying; Mensuration; The Application of Algebra to Geometry; Plane and Spherical Trigonometry; Conic Sections; Natural Philosophy; Chemistry; and Astronomy.

THE AIM IN TEACHING, Is not to hurry the pupil through Books, but to make his information accurate and practical; and, to Discipline his mind, by cultivating the Memory, developing the Reasoning Powers, elevating the Taste, exciting a Desire for Knowledge and pointing out the means of acquiring it.

IN ACCOMPLISHING THIS, READING and WRITING are taught according to regular systems, which the principal required in Philadelphia, under the instructions of L. G. WHITE and A, COMSTOCK, Professors of Eloction; and M.A. Root and B, EIKEN, Professors of the CARSTAIRS System of Penmanship.

"NAYLOR'S SYSTEM OF TEACHING GEOGRAPHY," has proved to be a most efficient aid to memory, in learning names and numbers, not only in Geography, but in Astronomy, Anatomy, and Chemistry.

IN GRAMMAR, ARITHMETIC, AND MATHEMATICS, the PRINCIPLES are fully explained, illustrated, or demonstrated; and the pupils are required to recite with precision and fullness.

NATURAL PHILOSOPHY CHEMISTRY, and OTHER SCIENCES, are elucidated by LECTURES AND EXPERIMENTS; and frequent occasions are taken to draw attention to the
