ST. LOUIS, MO., 1868.
This Literary Institution possesses all the advantages of an agreeable and healthy location, easy of access, beinz situated on a rizing ground, a little southwest of the Pacific Railroad ter: minus in the city of St. Louis, Missouri. It was founded in 1851, by the Brothers of the Chris. tian Schools, incorporated in 1855 by the Sute Legislature, and empowered to confer degrees ant academical honors. However favorable the auspices under which it commenced its literary career, its progress since has surpassed all anticipation. Growing equally in public contidence 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, cleanlin2ss, 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 begei 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: the 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, Gergraphy, and History, Business Forms and Correspondence, Epistolary Composition, Penmanship, ete, with Lectures on Commercial Law, Political Economy, etc. Diplomas can be 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.
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 of the first degree after two years devoted to some scieutific or literary pursuit, their moral character remaining unexceptionable.
The government is a union of mildness and firmness, energy, and kindness, a blonding 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,

NEW YORK HOTEL,
(OCCUPYING THE WHOLE BLOCK,)
Between Washington Place and Waverly Place,
AMID all the modifications which the public taste has undergone, aud all the material improvements that have been made during the last ten years, this favorite House has continued to maintain its reputation, as occupying the bighest rank among American Hotels.
Its situation combines many advautages both for strangers visiting the city, and for citizens occupied in business, and wishing to avoid the annoy. ances of housekeeping.
The Astor and Mercantile Libraries, and the Cooper Institute, are in the immediate vicinity of the Hotel; on the other side, the University of New York, Washington Parade Ground, and the Fifth Avenue are equally convenient.
The table is always supplied with every luxury which one of the richess markets in the world can afford. In short, no pains nor expense are spared by the undersigned to contribute to the comfort of their guests, and at the same time make them feel perfectly at home, without the apprehension that they will be required to conform to any needless "regulations."
That these various advantages are appreciated by our patrons is sufficiently proved by the fact that there are several families now at the New York Hotel, who have boarded at it for periods varying from seven to fifteen years.
Although few first-class hotels in the world enjoy a larger patronage than the New York, the proprietors always manage to reserve a few superior suites of rooms for families or individuals requiring special accommodations; otherwise it would be useless to make any announcement like the present.
