The Rev.John HEAVYSIDE, Chaplain of Graham's Town, takes this method of making it generally known that he has completed arrangements for opening a superior School for young Gentlemen which will afford all the advantages of an English Grammar School.

The course of instruction will comprise the Latin and Greek Classics, the French and German languages and Mathematics, together with all the various branches of a sound English education, to which particular attention will be paid.
The business of the School will commence on Monday the 24th July, when Mr.HEAVYSIDE will be ready to receive at once a few Boarders under the age of 12 years.

From a Correspondent
Port Elizabeth September 13 pm
Yesterday all day it blew very hard from the SE with a heavy sea. We had our doubts as far as the shipping at anchor in the bay (nine in number); but fortunately all rode out the gale in safety - only one incident happening to our knowledge, viz the 'Lively' parted one chain. The wind is now off the land, consequently all is safe.
This morning the body of the unfortunate nephew of Capt.CROCKLEY (late of the 'Laura') was picked up and will be buried this afternoon. This makes the fourth body recovered, namely the mate of the 'Laura', one seaman and one lad. Also the carpenter of the 'Sea Gull'.
