The Patriots midotiht rdly have n considerable omount of pro pcrly stored on I ho frontier, which was intended for the Cnnndn market, but under very different circumstances than those now existing in the two Provinces. Four regiments have nrrived at Montreal from Halifax, mid I500.o( the Glengary miliiin from Upper Canada, which in addition to t ho embodied miliiin and regular force of the Province, renders Lower Canada abundantly ntilo to rcpnl nny attack, from within or without. Wc therefore hope, and hrlicve, that the patriots contemplate no hostile moicnionts, whatever. In i lie meantime, however, the loyalists in Cana da, will, if possible, keep up the excitement, in order to seenro their pay and rations during the winter. Gen. Sfiot,l was nl Albany on Saturday last, mid tlollfied Cnv. Maroy to plnco at Gen. Wool's disposal two battalion? of mililia.

The Whigs remained at their posts, but the Locos descried the ground. MISS GREEN'S SCHOOL. Mr. Eimtor: During Monday and Tuesday of the present week n large por tion of our citizens were engaged in alien ding the semi-annual examination of Miss Green's school. I attended among the rest, nearly all the exercises, that I might discover os nearly as possible the merit and demerits of the institution, and thn imprcs sions left upon my mind by what I sow and beard arc of so decisive 0 character that 1 deemed them not unworthy of public notice. As to I he plan upon which the examination was conducted, it was clear that the prac rice of nssirrninn- beforehand parts to each of the pupils, upon which they were to be examined, bad no place Acre, for as far n was practicable the spectators were per mitted to propose questions or 'tibjocls lo the classes. There was one difficulty how. ever apparent during the whole examina tion. The quest tons ond answers wen madn in so low a tone as in many cases t bo distinctly intelligtb'e to tlin-o otHy win sat very near the Fpeaknr. This fault fhould be corrected, and the habit acquired by llie young Ladies of uiiciing their thoughts in a clear and full tone of voice. The firet point mnde manifest was. that lb" voting Ladies had studied much nod profit, ably individuals indeed appeared to hnyo ma'tered completely iho authors they had been studying, and in various instances ihere were exhibited marks of inlelloct of no inferior order. It was Hi bo ob-erved also thai the vicllwi! of instnulim had not been superficial, but was in ihe highc.-t do oreo thorough. In mathematical studies full and rigid ileitiousirnlion upon the black board was in nil cases required. In the Languages, (Latin and French.) Ihe pu litis did not merely iram-laio but were cliu-'ely exomined 0- lo grammar, proiiunci at ion and historical allusions. In the higher brunches of study, vizi Logic, Rhetoric, Intellectual Philu?oply. &c. it was clear from ihe lluency with which the young Ladies expressed then Ihotights, that they had been accustomed in their daily recitations to give ol length iho views of their authors in 1 heir own Ian gunge, a practice of the utmost importance in these studies, ,So fur as on opinion could bo formed of llie instructors, from the plan of instruction, tho nppearnnca of tho pupils and their own conduct during tho examinalinn, I judged them lo be critical scholars in the depart ments in which they were severally in striicted. I learned upon inquiry Hint in eluding the icocliers in Vocal Music and perspective Drawing, eight instructors have been employed lite pnt winter. And hern it must bo ob-erved that nil praise belong' to the intelligent Lady who preside ovr iho institution, that she has skill and dis comment, lo select good inslrnntors am 'pare no expense In obtain a number nmplj sufficient for nil the purposes of instrnclior. While it was observnblo that the mo'c important branches of English cducatim were thoroughly n'tonded to, there was good evidence that ti e ornamental brandi es had by nn means been neglected, vz : Music, Ltttenr and Perspective Drnwiig, Latin and French. Drnwingx by be young LadioJ were exhibited during the exercises nnd nn Tuesday evening the tin sic classes under the direction of Miss l""s ford and Prof. Moll were listened lo ly a crowded audience. Thair lerforoinices were highly creditable a might boexp'Cl ed, from pupils under such able inirne"ir!. A lo Ihe Latin classes, of which lliere were I believe three, it wa? gratifying to nil the lovers of good learning lo all who value lenrtiing for its own lake, to see the attention of young Ladiej turned to lb" elas-ic I ant n ware thaMnany o'lject lo this course for Ladles, on the ground ol utility. To such I wotih1 say tint thn slit dy ol the ela-sic is the laosl dtroet p.nh lo a knowledge of nnciei.t men, limes, mid thing', and reproduce in Ihe mind of llie scholar a fund nf chi'-ic lore, to which on; all fit occasions happy nl'it-ion may be inail".

But enough on this subject. During the past winter, in addition to their other advantages, the young ladies of the Seminary and such of our cilizens as were so disposed have bad Ihe pleasure nf listening to a series of elegant lectures, delivered nt the school room by several or our resident literary gentlemen. For this profitable enjoyment all are indebted to the uuwaricd exertions of Miss Green. It is to bo hoped that another winter II will not be so, but that somel hing in the form of an ancient Lyceum may be established. To conclude this article tho late examination has'shown the Burlington Female Semina ry, to be worthy of the high reputation it has so long sustained, ond deserving its present popularity. So long as it continues to maintain its present character and to advance, as it has dnnc,thc cause of educa tion in onr tinte.mny it receive the patron age of an enlightened public! Death or Oikoi.a.
