From "The Keystone", Harrisburg, Wednesday, July 4, 1838.

YOUNG LADIES' LYCEUM INSTITUTE.

THIS SEMINARY is located on the banks of the Little Chiquesalunga, about half a mile south of the village of Mt. Joy, in view of the Philadelphia and Harrisburg rail road, about seven hours ride from the former, and two hours from the later place; with both of which and with Lancaster, there is daily communication.

The Principal and proprietor of this institution has, for about fifteen years, conducted a Female High School in the city of Philadelphia; with what success, it may be seen by the subjoined testimonials. He has, at least, no expectation of lowering the standard of

Female Education in the new establishment, or of remitting any efforts, on his part, to place it on an equal standing with the best Female Seminaries in our country.

It is his object to educate, thoroughly and practically, the persons, the minds, and the hearts of the youth entrusted to his care,--as physical, intellectual, social, and moral beings. And whenever time and capacity admit, to render them competent to exercise moral discipline, and to impart instruction with effect to others.

The experiment of one year has clearly proved that the new arrangement, in a healthful, pleasant, and even delightful district of the country, removed from adverse and often controlling influences, will afford him far better means for affecting these desirable objects, than could be enjoyed in the sphere of his former labours.

TERMS.

1. The school year will be divided into two sessions, of five calendar months each, the first commencing on the first of May, and the second on the 1st of November. No admission for a shorter term than one session.

2. The charge for board, washing, lights, fuel, and tuition in the English and classical studies, will be, per session, payable in advance, $80

3. The extra charge per session will be for Music, 20

For drawing and painting, French and Italian each 15

Charge for bed and bedding, 5

In the discipline of the Seminary, the members are contemplated as physical, moral and intelligent beings. Hence the rules are comparatively few all concerns of minor importance being matters of mutual understanding rather than of law and penalty.

It scarcely needs be added, that moral suasion, in some of its various modes, furnishes the chief, and almost the only means of discipline employed in the Seminary; the salutary influences of which greatly contributes to the mental improvement, kind feelings, content and comfort of its members.

4. Besides the usual object of making thorough and practical proficients in the useful and liberal studies, one feature of this Seminary is its adaptation to educate Young Ladies for teachers. For this purpose, lectures are given on the nature and objects of education, and the modes of instruction,--also on the principles and methods of moral discipline, with practical exercises. Young Ladies desirous of possessing this truly liberal and

interesting accomplishment, may here avail themselves of it, by spending a session or two in the institution after completing the usual course.

N. DODGE, A. M. Principal.

TESTIMONIALS.

From a personal acquaintance with the Rev. N. Dodge, A. M., as well as from his well-known successful devotion to Female Education, we take great pleasure in expressing our entire confidence in his ability, and in his fidelity in the discharge of his professional duties. His plan of instruction is that which best secures the certain and permanent

improvement of his pupils, based as it is on strictly philosophical and Christian principles.

While we regret to lose from the profession, in this city, so valuable a coadjutor as Mr. Dodge, we would congratulate him in his going to a community which will doubtless appreciate his worth, and where with the Divine blessing, success will continue to attend him in his enlarged sphere of operations.

TO THE SUN

On beholding a morning beam on my prison wall.

By TH. J. SUTHERLAND.

Now a prisoner at the Garrison, Toronto U. C.

Why thus obtrude thy glittering ray,

Within my barred and dreary cell;

But to the free proclaim "to day"

My darkness thou canst not dispel--

I, here, no day nor night would know!

No dazzling sun beam--quickly go!

Go, shed thy light o'er half the earth,

And gild the lofty mountain's top.

Awake the grove to music's mirth,

And let the hind the herbage crop--

Call forth the ploughman to the field,

And bid the soil its plenty yield.

To shed thy light on Ocean's wave,

Where loud terrific waters roar;

There thou some shattered bark mayst save,

By showing forth the wished for shore;

And let the shipwrecked seaman gain,

The port long strove for but in vain!

Go bid awaken to the drum,

The soldier armed for fields or strife;

Arouse the citie's busy hum,

And call the living mass to life--

Where gilded crime is need of praise,

And what is hid by wealth's proud blaze.

Go wake the slumbers of the maid,

And break the lover's dream of bliss--

Merchants recall to schemes of trade

And let industry sleep dismiss--

Go bring the miser to behold,

And count again, his mass of gold.

But shed for me no beam so fair,

Nor pierce with light my casements gate;

From every ray my dungeon spare,

Nor make me conscious of my fate,--

Whilst bolts and bars prescribe my lot,

Let night and darkness shroud my cot.

To the Public.

In the latter end of September last, the undersigned arrived in the city of New York from Ireland at the instance of her unmarried brother, Charles Henry Sodan, a saddler by trade, and about 22 years of age. On her arrival in New York, he had left that place for Pittsburg, where she arrived in February of the present year, and learned to her sorrow that he left there in the month of January preceeding. She has not heard from or of him since; and hereby requests a benevolent American public to aid her in the discovery of his present place of residence.

If the said Charles Henry Sodan is living, and this notice should meet his eye, he is requested to write immediately to her, and direct to care of John C. Case, Washington Pa.

>>>Editors of news papers are requested to give the above a gratuitous insertion, and oblige a female stranger in distress.

The Housekeeper's Book.

THE Housekeeper's Book, comprising advice on the conduct of Household affairs in general, and particular directions for the preservation of furniture, bedding, etc., for the laying in and preserving of provisions; with a complete collection of Receipts for Economical Domestic Cookery. The whole carefully prepared for the use of American Housekeepers. By a Lady, second edition. The following is one of the many notices which the work has received:

THE HOUSEKEEPER'S BOOK.

The first edition of this very popular works was exhausted very soon after its publication, and so much time was consumed in making the additions for the new

emission, that the housekeepers were getting impatient; we trust that an edition of five thousand copies will furnish a sufficient supply for some months to come.

This book has brought "golden opinions; of all sorts of people. Those who pride themselves on the neatness of their domestic arrangements, find much that is useful to them under the head of "General Observations, on commencing Housekeeping." "Household Duties and Operations," "the Kitchen," "Preservation of Plate," and "Preservation of Beds, Carpets, &c." The economist, as well as the epicure, prizes the book for the immense number of excellent and economical receipts for Cookery which it contains. The victualler studies, the part relating to cutting up animals according to rule.--Those whose education has been neglected in respect to the general accomplishment of carving, make the Housekeeper's Book their text book, and pore over the ingenious diagrams which it contains like a sophomore over a proposition in Euclid. Young ladies procure copies of it in order to perfect themselves in the culinary art, and in the management of flowers and plants in a room; hotel keepers present a copy to each servant at the time of engaging him, just as our grandmother used to give us a copy of the "Whole Duty of Man," to each of the children on setting out in the world; and an oyster shop keeper, might make a little fortune out of the receipts for scalloped oysters, on page 104, like the man Salim, in the oriental story, who made his fortune out of a receipt for compounding sherbet. No wonder the book sells. It is truly a cash article--Weekly

From the Lycoming Gazette and Chronicle.

STANZAS.

A CHILD—it seems but yesterday,

And yet whole years have passed

Since I was but a tiney thing,

Old time speeds on so fast;

The moss grows o’er our cottage roof,

The ivy clusters wild

The same, yet not as loved by me

As when I was a child!

A child—how much this heart hath felt

The bitterness of change,

Grasping at something new and dear

Yet finding all things strange;

Since by the hedge row’s fragrant side

My steps were wild and free

And the sweet flowers of evening time

Had each a tale for me.

I gather flowers at evening now,

They have a fragrant breath,

Yet ‘neath their tender petals hid

I find the seeds of death;

I could not mark the cankering blight

So carelessly they smiled

Along my path at matin hour

When I was but a child!

A child—how many happy thoughts

Come rushing back with power,

How many faces that I loved

In young life’s morning hour;

Yet deeply have I had since then

The bitter truth revealed,

That they who wear the sunniest smile

Have blackest thoughts concealed,

A child—it seems but yesterday,

And yet whole years have past

Since I was but a tiney thing.

Old time speeds on so fast;

And now I bear the weight of age

And feel time’s festering dart,

Who leaves his furrows on my cheek,

His frosts within my heart.
