luctance, and with much Caution; knowing that this is a Question which has convulsed the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, from End to End, and from Side to Side.
REFERRING to the One Hundreth and Seventy-seventh Page of this Essay, it will be seen that we have not been unmindful of the Mental, the General, and the Scientific Improvement of “The Daughters of England.”—This is, undoubtedly, an Object of the First Importance; whether we consider it in a Private, or in a Public Point of VIEW.
The First Principles of Education, are generally incul. cated by the MOTHER; and if the Foundation be false and unsound, the Superstructure must inevitably prove danger. ous, not only to particular Individuals, but also to private Society, and to the GENERAL PUBLIC.
We would, therefore, most earnestly but affectionately, advise “ The Daughters of England," to store their Minds well with Historical, Biographical, Philosophical, and General Knowledge; in order that they may be properly qualified to discharge their important Duties, to the Rising Generation, with Prudence, Propriety, and Success !!
BEFORE we close our Remarks, we would again, address ourselves to “ The Sons of Great Britain.”—They should not only consider their Education and Improvement, in an Individual, but also in a National Point of View. The Future Destinies of this Great and Mighty Empire will VERY Soon be placed in their Hands; and upon their Knowledge, Prudence, Firmness, and courage, it will greatly depend, whether we may still continue to Rise, in the scale of Nations; or whether we may begin gradually to DECLINE ; and at Length, entirely Fall, and even CEASE to be an Independent Nation, like the Ancient, Renowned and Mighty Empires of Babylon, Assyria, Persia, Greece, and ROME!!!

Messrs. NESBIT beg to return their most GRATEFUL THANKS, for the prompt and generous Assistance afforded them, on the Occasion of their late Calamitous Fire; and for the continued Christian Kindness displayed by their Friends,
They also wish to inform their Friends and the Public, that they have taken a Commodious House, No. 26, Chester Place, for the Accommodation of their Family and Boarders, until their own House is rebuilt; which will be done as expeditiously as possible, with every Convenience for the Reception of about THIRTY BOARDERS.
Their Excellent School Room having escaped the Ravages of the Fire, the Business of the School is still carried on as usual; and they trust by their constant Assiduity and Perseverance, to merit the Continuation of that Patronage with which they have already been so HIGHLY HONOURED.
