* f'/iut we should seek m the Sciences is truth, and truth,
is in Ihcficls." —Broussais.
ST is now more than six years since I first con
ceived tiie idea of publishing periodically the
ybove work, tor the tallowing reasons, winch arc ob- j
viousand striking: There being no publication of the
kin J in the State.; and, tor ought I know, throughout
the whole Southern States; we are compelled, con
sequently, to look to the North, and through her to
Europe, tor every thing new. rare, and interesting in
the science. It would seem peculiary appropriate
just at the present time, when :he most awful visita
tion is hovering over the land—the Asiatic Cholera.
It has already swept across a great extent < t Noitli
America; from Montreal and Quebec to New Or-|
leans; visiting .Im .st every city and town ol any uu-'
portanee in the Northern Middle and W estern States. I
There is left no reasonable ground to justity the con- ■
elusion, that our highly favoured section ot country,
can much longer escape the impending evil Best tea, ,
have we no disease or modification ot disease, met-'
dent and peculiar to our climate, and remedies native ;
of our country ? |
Medicine had its origin, in necessity ! Id iiiotives of.
benevolence and philanthropy—in a disposition to
mitigate the evils—to ameliorate the condition o suf
fering human nature to liatffe fell disease — the greatest
curse inflicted on fallen man —and bestow, on him
iJeallh, the chiefesl blessing, saving the atoning blood
of our Saviour. Our much lamented Hush said, “while
the world, from the progress of intellectual, moral,
and p ilitical truth, is becoming a more sate and agree |
able abode for man, the votaries ot Medicine should i
not be idle.” The American Linnanis, the late ven-|
erable Benj. S. Bartoh said, “he who discovers one (
valuable new Medicine, is a more important bem tac
tor of his snecies than Alexander, Cesar, Bonaparte,
or an hundred other conquerors Lven his glory.
the estimation ot a truly civilized age, Will be gie.lt
; r 'md more lasting, than that of these admired ravag
ers ot the wot id i
Whai is the condition of our department ot science
in Georgia? Indeed and in truth our Medical lore is ,
Lirking tar behind (comparatively speakmg) the active
improvements of the day—the spirit ot the times ad
monishing us to look forward wnh an mirivHed gaze, |
upon tin advance ot man and the • march ot inind. ,
There is medical talent m Georgia, and yei -lie is al- .
most without proiessi it"l character , ‘ 1
not enterprise, industry and energy. 1 neie i- mar - ,
folly but little written on medicine m mi. .oat- , m -
ical reading too, is imt pursued with avidity, kssstuu
ied, properly undeistood and i.'gai «-<l. . ,
Let <r 'urn our attention to tin* constant and Hide- i
fatigable efforts ot many American teach-is ; but es
pecially to toe. late works of our own countryman,
nrotessor Jackson of Philadelphia, lie inculcates
principles upon the unerring guide ot g. nume atm in
ductive plulosophy.be declaims against nutlmniy ;
and boldly asserts tlw non-exinciice y •’ s l’ ecl . h s

losophy, Audral Broussais. Baron Liny, ’mid Laeu
nec and others; these moderns of the moderns, have
'ivhollv uprooted the old and ancient systems of roti- |
tine medicine:—they have sought, however, not so ;
much to overthrow former systems founded m error,
as they have to discover truth, ind the real cho mey of ,
disease. They have not only succeeded .n removing ,
the rubbish, but in establishing medicine on a surer I
and firmer foundation, and giving to it the line ol
match.onwardto perfection. . . '
If would be u.icandid, audit is md lobe denied or

I Monday in January next, under the direction oi the
' Rev. B 11. Sanders.
i The principle object of the Institution is the educa
i tion of pious young men, wlio are called to the gospel
ministry and have been licensed by the cuurch to
which they belong, and have a good report of ihern
that are without —and particularly those who are indi
gent —and such are utfeclionately invited to bring
their testimonials and avail themselves gratuitously of
' the advantages ot the institution. But as we have no ,
reason to believe that this class ot pupils will fill up 1
the school; it will receive, in addition, as many young
men of good moral character, as can be pro ided lor,
irrespective of religious sentiments. Til” < ommittee
are of opinion that, from the limited state oi its pres-
I ent accommodations, they will not be able to receive
more than 30 to board on the premises the first Term
! ,A S fast, as our friends may find themselves well
pleased with the experiment we may make, as to con
tribute to our means, we design to tilarge our accom
modations lor students, and open our doors tor them.
All the branches of science, usually taught in gram-
I mer schools, will be taught in this Institution No stu-
I dent will be received for less than one year —theyear
will be divided into two terms —the first of six months,
from the 2d Monday in January, to the 2d in July
the 2d <>f 5 months, from the 3d Monday in July, to
thi’ 3 i Monday in December.
j BOARD, tor all over !i> years of age, will be s>3o
for th> scholastic year, and s>i> for washing : those un
der 111. at <’ per montn, having a reasonable deduction
for their labour —each student furnishing his own bed
i amt candles. For want ol funds, board and tuition
1 will be required in advance, to be paid to the stew
ard. Tuition will be s'■) lor the first term, to all en
-1 in reading, wrr.ing, arithmetic, grammar, ge
!r>.rranhy and history. All the higher branches oi
I science and the iangu iges, will be taught tor sia the
' first term —the second ill pi portion.
R ich student w’l! be required to labourthree hours
' each day, five and a halt days in the wre.k The time
ami kind of labour will be directed by the teward,
( under the control ot the Trustees ; and each student
’ will be expected to conform strictly to the regulations
i>f the Institution. It will be expedient for each stu
i dent to have coarse clothes to work in ; and it is de
sired that the wearing apparel of all should he plain
and cheap, that there may be as little distinction as
possible, and that the principle ot economy may be
fully carrier! into* very department of the Institution.
: As our Institution is in its infancy. and in want ot ev
| ery thin", any useful book, to aid in forming a library,
i ami an v implement for labour, or any suitable article
i ot furniture, that any friend may find it convenmit to
i contribute, will be thankfully received.
