travelling companions, and another Irish gentleman whom we fell in with, and who was also going to London. The passage of our trunks through the Custom-house having been facilitated by the payment of a franc a-piece, and all other matters arranged, we embarked at the appointed time, and soon after set sail. The harbour of DIEPPE, as well as I could judge through the darkness of the night, is a large square basin, with an outlet at one corner. The night was fine, the moon about the full, and a fine steady breeze blowing! After enjoying a delightful walk upon deck for some time, we retired to our nests, and slept soundly till next morning.
Monday, 7th. - BRIGHTon in sight about three o'clock, and then the wind began to die away. A boat soon put off to us, in which our luggage was deposited, under the inspection of a Custom-house officer. We also entered it, and reached the shore by four o'clock in the afternoon.
Tuesday, 8th.-Having had our trunks brought to the inn from the Custom-house, we set off at half-past nine from Brighton for LONDON, by the coach, and reached the Bell Inn, Holborn, at six o'clock in the evening. Thence we were conveyed home to Islington in a hackney-coach-glad to have been, and MORE GLAD TO HAVE RETURNED.

THE REV. JOHN EVANS, A. M.
ASSISTED BY HIS SON,
LATB OF THE UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH, UNDERTAKES to board and educate YOUNG GENTLEMEN in the ENGLISH, Latin, and GREEK LANGUAGES; including also READING, WRITING, ARITHMETIC, MERCHANTS' Accounts, ENGLISH GRAMMAR and COMPOSITION, GEOGRAPHY, ChroNOLOGY, HISTORY Civil and Natural, Use of the GLOBES, the MATHEMATICS, Theoretical and Practical, together with other Branches of polite and useful Learning. This course of Education will be accommodated to the Age and Taste of the PUPIL, keeping in view the particular sphere of Life in which he may be destined to move.
The advantages of a limited number of Pupils are obvious to all. The progress of intellectual and moral improvement is hereby accelerated. The acquisition of Knowledge is facilitated by the Tutor's own immediate inspection, whilst the number of the Pupils is sufficient for the excitement of emulation without hazarding their morals by those vices which are too frequently attendant on larger schools, notwithstanding the utmost vigilance of their masters. But on these advantages accruing froin a limited number of Pupils, it is not necessary to expatiate. The enlightened Parent is apprised of them;—the affectionate Parent wants no inducement to embrace them.
Parents who honour Mr. Evans with the charge of their Sons, may rely on his exertions to secure to them Knowledge and Virtue, the two great objects of Education. For what is Man without Knowledge, and Knowledge without Virtue United, they exhibit human nature in its loveliest and most engaging form; they constitute the intelligent and valuable member of society.
The expenses incurred by Parents in the education of their offspring will never be regretted. A blessing of greater magnitude cannot be rendered them by any earthly benefactor. The minds of youth, impregnated with knowledge and with virtue, amply repay those who have been the means of furnishing them with such treasures. Into the parental bosom it will be returned a hundred fold. The seeds of felicity, thus sedulously sown at an early period of life, promise an abundant harvest.
All the Pupils have access to a select LIBRARY. On every useful topic, and especially in the department of History, those productions will be pointed out to them, which, both for style and sentiment, are the most deserving of attention. By the early acquisition of a discriminating taste, not only time and expense are saved, but the improvement of the individual is effectually promoted. Two Guineas will be expected from every Pupil at his first coming, towards défraying the expenses attending the purchase of Books. A small charge also is made for the use of an elegant Apparatus, including an Electrical Machine, Air-Pump, Galvanic Trough, System of Mechanics, large Orrery, Optical Models, &c. by which are performed the leading experiments of NATURAL PhilosOPHY.
Terms Forty Guineas per Annum, which, considering the extensive circle of education which the plan embraces, cannot be deemed immoderate. Mr. E. has been at very considerable expense in enlarging the School Room and Play Ground, with other improvements conducing to the health and recreation of the Pupils. An additional charge of Ten Guineas per Annum, is made to a few ELDER Pupils, who, (if desired,) upon finishing their Education, have a Room assigned them, where they sit together, and where Lectures are given them at intervals on Logic AND RHETORIC, ConstituTION AND LAWS OF GREAT BRITAIN, SKETCHES OF Moral PhiloSOPHY, and EVIDENCES OF THE CHRISTIAN RE
The Room which these Young Gentlemen oc. cupy is pleasantly situated, and is hung round with MAPS and Charts, as well as enriched with a select number of volumes, calculated to facilitate the purposes of their Education.
Each Young Gentleman is expected to bring with him a white-handled Knife and Fork, a Silver Spoon and half a dozen Towels.
No Entrance required.--Payment Half Yearly.
N. B. French, DANCING, DRAWING, &c. if desired, will be taught by proper Masters, at the usual Terms.
There are Two Vacations--a Month at Christmas, and Six Weeks at Midsummer.
A Quarter's Notice is requested when any Young Gentleman is to be removed from School.
