A WARNING TO ENGLISH GOVERNESSES. The Rev. C. Forbes, D. D., the English chaplain at Paris writes:-A young lady, aged nineteen, the daughter of a widow,' obtained through an office in London the address of a French school where she could be taken on moderate terms. She was to give an hour of her time daily as an English governess and to pay £ 12 per quarter, the mistress promising her the advantage of "tros bons professeurs," with fournitures classiques, adding that all her pupils belonged to des families fort distinguees.' The poor young lady came to Paris, paid the quarter in advance, and found herself alone with he s o i aistant school-mistress in two small rooms in a low quarter of this city,-—no ochociL. j; "tt&pilsf not-eveq. it servant. At the end' of fiife ^'W' d^ys, on the last of which shy httd-te~Tjar<i-itw ^jTiomefrom a restaurant alone, and to sit on the staircase for som e hours until the return of the mistress with the key at half-past ten, she came to my house in utter despair* We placed her in our "Governess Home and found her a suitable school, and are endeavouring to re- cover some of the money out of wh\¡:h she has been swindled. From the above case it will be seen that the greatest care is needed-and I speak after twenty years' experience-in answering advertisements through French or English bureaux. As numerous applications are made to me from ladies de- sirous of finding some opening or position in Paris, whether in French families or schools, it may be as well to state for their information that there arc at least ten applications for one such opening.
