  REPLY.--My dear young friends--Words would fail to utter the deep feelings of gratitude due to you, not merely for your very handsome Present and flattering Address, but for the affection manifested by all of you, during mystay in Lurgan.  Such feelings could not fail to call forth efforts on my part, to promote your literary attainments. Now, being about to leave, it gives me peculiar satisfaction that you still remain under the tuition of Mrs. Harpur,who, in connection with the highly accomplished Governess that is to succeed me, is sure to promote your welfare.
