ST. LOUIS, MO., 1868.
This Literary Institution possesses all the avantages of an agreeable and healthy location, casy of access, bein: situated on a rising ground, a little southwest of the Pacific Railroad ter mious in the city of St. Louis, Jiissouri. It was founded in 1851, by the Brothers of the Christian Schools, incorporated in 1855 by the State Legislature, and empowered to confer degrees and academical honors. However favorable the auspices under which it commenced its literary career, its progress since has surpassed all anticipation. Growing equally in public confidence and in tho number of students, it has gone on extending its reputation. Repeated additions have been mado to the original buildings. The number of Students received within the last year amounted to more than 600, and many applicants were refused admission for want of room.
Every possible attention is paid to whatever can contribute to the health and happiness of its inmates-ventilation, cleanliness, spacious halls, dormitories, refectory, recreation halls for cold or damp weather, etc., etc.
The various arts and sciences usually taught in colleges find here an appropriate place in a system of education established by experience, conducted on the most approved plan, and with a devotedness commensurate with the greatness of the work engaged in. By reason of the great number of classes, a thorough gradation for all capacities and acquirements has been attained, and the frequent examinations and promotions beget emulation, the soul of advancement, making labor a pleasure, and success certainty.
The course of instruction pursued in the Academy is divided into three departments: tho primary, the intermediate, and the collegiate. There is, beside, an exclusively commercial course, offering rare advantages to young gentlemen who intend to make business their profession. It is divided into three classes, in which the chief place is given to instruction in Book-keeping, Arithmetic, Geography, and History, Business Forms and Correspondence, Epistolary Composition, Ponmanship, cte, with Lectures on Commercial law, Political Economy, etc. Diplomas can bo obtained in the Commercial Department by such as merit that distinction.
The session commences on the last Monday in August, and ends about the 31 of July, with an annual public examination and distribution of premiums, and the conferring of degrees and academical honors. wash On the completion of the course the degree of A. B, is conferred upon such students as, on ex. amination are found worthy of that distinction. The degree of A. M. can be obtained by graduates in the first degree after two years devoted to some scientific or literary pursuit, their moral character remaining unexceptionable.
The government is a union of mildness and firmness, energy, and kindness, a blending of paternal solicitude with fraternal sympathy; the results of which are contentment, good order and happiness. The morals and general deportment of the students are constantly watched over; Brothers preside at their recreations and their comfort and personal habits receive every attention.
