MR. HUNTER's primary object is to prepare young gentlemen for Business, and for College, while considerable attention is devoted to the more interesting branches of Science and Literature. Elementary courses of Instruction have already been given on the Mechanics of Action, Composition, Astronomy, and Belles Lettres. It has been found that by the system pursued, a competent knowledge of the ordinary branches can be secured, while a taste for literature can be imparted, such as may in after life open up sources of pleasure, pure and inexhaustible. While leading his pupils to engage in voluntary study, Mr. H. is anxious to avoid all stimulants but those which reason and religion justify. He disapproves of Premiums, because they invariably fill the mind with false hopes, or vain fears,--with silly pride, or unfounded shame, and turn the attention to knowledge, not as a thing good in itself, but as a thing which we must be bribed to learn.
