Freehold Institute. — The Institute was founded in 1844, and passed into the hands of its present head in 1868. It is situated on the outskirts of one of the most pleasant and healthy towns in the United States, and has enjoyed remarkable immunity from epidemic or even local diseases. The standard of its scholarship may be judged by reference to the list of honors taken by its graduates at various colleges, as given in the Catalogue for 1877-78. Equal success has been met with in the English and Business Departments, the graduates from which occupy responsible positions throughout the country. Its instructors are all College graduates and men of many years' experience in teaching. The table is not surpassed by that of any other school in the country.

There are three large buildings heated by steam and lighted with gas. The two principal ones, both of brick, three stories in height, one of them new, afford ample accommodation for seventy-five boarders, without crowding, in handsome, well-lighted rooms. The gymnasium, bowling-alley, and a large, well-shaded campus, afford every opportunity for exercise. There is a good school library, besides that of the Clio Debating Society, and those of the teachers, which the students are welcome at all times to consult. All the students are expected to attend the Bible class, conducted by the Principal on Sunday morning, but can attend any one of the five churches in the town which their parents may prefer.

The Institute has but one standard of teaching — hard, earnest work, teacher and scholar laboring together, encouragement to bright boys, help and words of cheer to dull ones, a spur to the idle, and a quick exit to the vicious and dangerous, — these are the means which have crowned the last ten years' labor with such gratifying results. Success without labor is an impossibility, and the recognition of this fact is the one end diligently sought to be attained in the course of instruction at the Institute. For catalogue and information, address Rev. A. 0. Chambers, Principal.

Academy of the Sacred Heart.

German-American Academy and Boarding School (German, English, and French Academy). This institution, as is indicated by its name, strives to effect a union in its system of education between the best forms of German and English culture. It seeks to communicate to its pupils the necessary amount of knowledge suited to the circumstances of American life, introducing them also into the sphere of German mental culture, and is, therefore, equally adapted for American and German children. The institution consists of five distinct graded classes and a Kindergarten.

The Kindergarten, intended for children from three to six years of age, presents to them not disciplinary instruction but practical knowledge. From this department the child passes into the Primary class, which combines the more advanced instruction of the Kindergarten with the elements of English and German education. In the succeeding or Lower Class still further advance is made in this elementary instruction, while in the Middle Class, Reading and Writing are made subordinate to the other branches. Arithmetic and Grammar are extended, and the study of French is added. The Upper Class affords pupils the instruction and accomplishments which will be needed in active life.

In the Academic Class the main objects of instruction are Mathematics, Natural Science, and Bookkeeping, special consideration being given to English, German, and French Grammar and Literature. Thorough instruction in all needle-work is given to girls.

A Boarding School is established in connection with the Day School, into which the sons and daughters of respectable families will be received, conscientious care being given to their moral and physical education and the formation of their characters.

The first quarter begins in September, the second in November, the third in February, and the fourth in April.

Hopewell Female Seminary. — The valley of Hopewell is noted for the high moral tone of its inhabitants, which renders it peculiarly desirable for a Boarding School; this, combined with its pure air, excellent water, and ready access to our great cities, renders this village unsurpassed by any of its rivals, as a suitable place for the education of youth.

The building is thoroughly warmed by the best of heaters. The Study Rooms, Music Rooms, and Recitation Rooms are carpeted, promoting cleanliness, quiet, and a home- like aspect. The sleeping-rooms are finely ventilated and arranged for two occupants each.

The Principal has had many years' experience in preparing young ladies for the duties and responsibilities of life, and care is exercised in the selection of teachers, that the moral influences be such that the character of the young ladies shall be improved and elevated by their companionship. The discipline is mild, but firm. It is the constant endeavor of the Principal to render the Seminary, not in name only, but in reality, a home for the pupils committed to her care, and to that end all the rules of the Institution tend.

Pupils sustaining a creditable examination in the Literary and Scientific courses, and at the same time preserving throughout correct and lady-like deportments will receive a diploma in consideration of the same. They can also pursue the study of the Languages in connection with this course, or adopt a Select course, pursuing such studies as their circumstances may make desirable, and reciting in such classes as their advancement may permit.

Pupils, on entering school, will be admitted to that department for which they are found prepared, and promoted as they are able to pass satisfactory examinations on the different branches pursued. The course of study consists of a Primary, a Preparatory, and a Senior Department. The Senior Department embraces a Literary and Scientific course, and a Classical course. Board and tuition in Literary and Scientific course, per year.$175.00. Hoard and tuition in Literary and Scientific course, French, Drawing, and Music, per year, $225.00.

Fr. A. Mollenhauer's School of Music.—Established 1864. Not only in name but in reality will this be found a thorough School of Music. Devoting all his time, talent and energy to this end, Mr. Mollenhauer has built up an institution, which is a source of pride to all lovers of the art, and which may be safely recommended to students, desirous of honest, capable, and conscientious instruction in the various branches of Music. All lessons are given personally by Mr. Mollenhauer, but in departments where this Is not practicable, the most able teachers are selected (as occasion requires) to assist him. Lessons will be given in Vocalization, Pianoforte. Organ, (Cabinet or Church), Violin, Violoncello, Guitar, Flute, Cornet, and Harmony. Private Soirees will be given at short intervals, having for their object the performance of a high order of music, and the appearance in public of such pupils as have distinguished themselves by rapid improvement. In conclusion, it is necessary to state that the taking oflessons, without the regular and diligent practice of the same, is a waste of time aud money, and a source of chagrin botli to pupil and teacher. Music, as it is the most beautiful, is the most difficult of accomplishments, and requires persistent study to reach even a moderate degree of excellence.

French is taught by a native teacher, and Drawing by a graduate from the School of Design, in Philadelphia.

"It Is now very generally admitted that children are to be taught something more than simply to "read, write, and cipher." The first step in the business of education Beems to be to lead children t > observe with attention the objects which surround them and then to describe with accuracy the impressions made upon their minds through the medium of the senses. A knowledge of Mngt must precede a knowledge of wordi."

It is upon this basis that the course of study in this Institute is arranged.
