WM M. JONES respectfully informs his friends and the public generally, that he has concluded to open a School for Females in Alexandria, on the 1st Monday in September next. His course of instruction includes all the branches of a finished English Education. He will make no display by going into details. He would prefer that those who are concerned for the education of their daughters, would visit his school and judge for themselves. He would merely add, that as he has made the business of teaching his profession, and has devoted his life to the cultivation of the Female mind, he has spared no pains in making himself acquainted with the best methods of teaching– With what success he has taught, it is not his place to say; but it may not be improper to remark that he has in his possession, and will place in the hands of Mr. H.
