EDUCATION
Uitenhage, December 23rd 1836
Sir, Knowing you to be laudably anxious about the state of Education among us, I beg to state in reply to your Queries that the “Uitenhage Colored School” was originally instituted for the Children of the Slave Population; but as very few attended, no School-room or teaching apparatus was provided; it was held three forenoons weekly – but for the last 7 or 8 years all colored Children have been admitted, which has increased the numbers more than five-fold; but the same unfurnished, unhealthy hovel is the only School-room yet provided.
When His Excellency Sir Benjamin D’URBAN was here, about a year ago, he directed that instruction should be given every day in the forenoon; and to meet the increasing desire for instruction, the Teacher keeps School in the afternoon at his own charge, so that at present the advantage of constant schooling is provided. During the year applications for white Children to be admitted have been frequent, there are about twenty of them have been incorporated with the others, which is found to be a beneficial arrangement in facilitating their acquiring the English language.
The system of teaching is the Lancasterian, a little modified to suit local circumstances; and the subjoined classification is in accordance with that manual of tuition.
The local School Commission held their half-yearly Examination on the 19th inst, and expressed their approbation with the state and progress of the Scholars – there were 105 present – about a dozen small Prizes were distributed to the lower classes; but the following five being further advanced, received Prizes of more value – the entire absence of Funds, however, render this mode of encouragement seldom practicable.
Hans ZWARTLAND for Reading
David JACOBS, best specimen of Small hand-writing
Amelia RUSSEL, Translation
Eliz. HYMAN, Arithmetic, Rule of Three
Senna ADONIS, ditto, Multiplication
The common daily attendance at this School is from 90 to 100, about one half of whom can read the Testament or the Bible, and are daily exercised at translating a portion of the same. The same number also write on paper, and the remainder write on slates: Writing being taught at the same time as Reading, of course every Child in the School knows something of Writing.
The Rule of Three, in Arithmetic, is the highest point any have yet attained; but many leave before that being acquired, to be wholly or partially of any service. The following tabular view shews our number and state, with which I conclude and remain Sir
Your very obedient servant
C. HYMAN

FIRE AT WYNBERG
On Friday morning last, before day-break, the Inhabitants of Wynberg were alarmed by the rapid approach of fire; which, having been communicated to the bushes near Protea, was conveyed by a strong South-westerly wind to the adjoining woods in the rear of Mr. STEUART’s, Col. ROGERS’, Mr. HAMILTON’s and Mr. VAN OUDTSHOORN’s Premises, all of which were in imminent danger; but the progress of the flames was happily checked in this direction about 6 o’clock, by the exertions of the inhabitants and their neighbours. The fire soon after took the direction of Mr. DREYER’s house, some of the outbuildings of which were, we understand, several times on fire; but the flames were fortunately extinguished before any serious injury was sustained by the buildings.
A party of HM 27th Regt arrived from Cape Town about 7 o’clock, and afforded most valuable assistance in arresting the progress of the conflagration, which at one time threatened to destroy a large portion of the village.

CONSUMPTION CURED BY DR. BRANDRETH’S CELEBRATED VEGETABLE PILLS
“Birmingham, May 2nd 1836
Sir, My daughter has been in a very declining state for the last twelve months, and was pronounced in a consumption by her medical attendant, who stated that she could not last through another spring; as he gave me no hopes of her life, and being advised by a friend, who had received great benefit from the use of your Pills when declared in a consumption, I determined to give them a trial, and am now happy beyond measure to state this fact to you, that upon commencing with two or three and sometimes four every night, her sleep, after a few nights, returned to her, and about a month after taking the Pills regularly her cough gradually got better, her appetite returned, and she is now quite well. You are at liberty to make any use you please of this letter, and my only wish is that all persons consumptively inclined would give your Pills that trial I am so convinced they deserve.
I am Sir you very obedient and obliged servant
Geo. HAMDEN”
An immense number of cures and testimonials in favour of these Pills may be seen at any of the Agents.
In consequence of the most unparalleled success, and the wonderfully increasing sale of Brandreth’s Vegetable Pills, his Majesty’s Honourable Commission of Stamps have allowed the Proprietor (by express permission) to have his name on the Government label; and the Public will observe that none are genuine unless “Geo. HODGKINSON, Aldersgate-street” is engraved on the stamp, to counterfeit which is felony.
To be had of every respectable Medicine Vendor.
