Prof. J. W. Holt will open his school in Oakland on the fourth Monday in this month. He has been teaching in that place with marked success for some time, and has now employed the services of a competent female assistant, capable of teaching music, and we bespeak for him liberal patronage.

Oakland Notes
Oakland can now boast of four active schools, one at the Academy, under the supervision of Prof. Petersen, which is well attended, a private school taught by Mrs. Wm. Grobe, who has as many pupils as she can attend to; a singing school conducted with remarkable success by Prof. Long, with a large attendance and much interest manifested; and a colored normal school conducted by Prof. J. R. Townsend, a graduate of the North Carolina normal school. The school has an attendance of forty-five pupils, a great many being from a distance. The Professor is a thorough teacher and is wielding a wholesome influence over our colored population.
