27. Articulation is the cutting out and Anecdote. Accommodating. A Fhyst shaping, in a perfectly distinct and appro- cian-advertised, that at the request of nis priate manner, with the organs of speech, friends, he had moved near the church-yurd; all the simple and compound sounds which and trusted that his removal would accomour twenty-six letters represent. It is to modate many of his patients. No doubt of it. the ear what a fair hand-writing is to the eye, and relates, of course, to the sounds, not to the names, of both vowels and consonants. It depends on the exact positions and correct operations, of the vocal powers, and on the ability to vary them with rapidty, precision and effect: thus, articulation is purely an intellectual act, and belongs not to any of the brute creation.

29. Two grand objects are, to correct bad nabits, and form good ones; which may be done by the practice of analysis and synthesis: that is, taking compound sounds, syllables, words, and sentences into pieces; or, resolving them into their component parts, and then recombining, or putting them together again. Error must be eradicated, or truth cannot be received; we must cease to do evil, and learn to do well: what is true can be received only in proportion as its opposite false is removed.

Freedom. When freedom is spoken of every one has an idea of what is meant ; for every one has known what it is to live in freedom, and also what it is to live, and ac: under restraint. But then it is obvious that different persons feel in freedom, ac cording to circumstances; things which re strain and infringe upon the freedom of some, have no such effect upon others. So that in the same situation in which one would feel free, another would feel himself

all have a general idea of what freedom is, yet all have not the same idea of it. For the same circumstances, it follows, that freeas different persons would not all be free in dom itself is not the same thing to all. Of course, the kinds of freedom are as many and various as the kinds of love are by which we are all governed: and our freedom is genuine or not genuine, according as our ruling love is good or evil.

31. The organs of speech are, the dorsal and abdominal muscles, the diaphragm and intercostal muscles, the thorax or chest, the lungs, the trachea or wind-pipe, the larynx, (composed of five elastic cartilages, the upper one being the epiglottis,) the glottis, palate, tongue, teeth, lips and nose: but, in all efforts, we must use the whole body. Al vowel sounds are made in the larynx, or vocal box, and all the consonant sounds above this organ.

We all must serve an apprenticeship to the five senses; and, at every step, we need assist. ance in learning our trade: gentleness, fatience, and love-are almost every thing in education: they constitute a mild and bless. ed atmosphere, which enters into a child's soul, like sunshine into the rosebud, slowly, but surely expanding it into vigor and beauty.

35. Attend to the quantity and quality of the sounds, which you and others make; that is, the volume and purity of voice, the time occupied, and the manner of enunciating letters, words, and sentences: also, learn their differences and distinctions, and ake your voice produce, and your ear observe them. Get clear and distinct ideas and conceptions of things and principles, both as respects spirit, and matter; or you will grope in darkness.

Causes of Greek Perfection. All Greek Philologists have failed to account satisfactorily, for the form, harmony, power, and superiority of that language. The reason seems to be, that they have sought for a thing where it is not to be found; they have look'd into books, to see-what was never written in books; but which alone could be heard. They learned to read by ear, and not by letters; and, instead of having manuscripts be 36.

37. The difference between expulsion and explosion is, that the latter calls into use, principally, the lungs, or thorax : i. e. the effort is made too much above the diaphragm the former requires the combined action of the muscles below the midriff; this is favorable to voice and health; that is deleterious, generally, to both: many a one has injured his voice, by this unnatural process, and others have exploded their health, and some their life; beware of it.

priation. When an author wished to have his work published, he used the living voice of himself, or of a public orator, for the printer and bookseller: and the public speaker, who was the best qualified for the task, would get the most business: the greater effect they produced, the higher their reputation. The human voice, being the grand instrument, was developed, cultivated, and tuned to the highest perfection. Beware of dead book knowledge, and seek for living, moving nature: touch the letter-only to make it alive with the eternal soul.

Anecdote. I hold a wolf by the ears: which is similar to the phrase-catching a Tartar; supposed to have arisen from a trooper, meeting a Tarter in the woods, and exclaiming, that he had caught one: to which his companion replied," Bring him along, then;"-he answered, "I can't;" "Then come yourself;"-" He won't let me."

In painting and sculpture it is the artist's great aim, to represent, by sensible colors, and to embody under material forms, cer. tain ideas, or principles, which belong to the mind, and give form to his conceptions on canvass, or on marble: and, if his execution be equal to his conception, there will be a perfect correspondence, or analogy, be tween his picture, or statue, and the ideas. which he had endeavored therein to express. The works of the greatest masters in poetry, and those which wih live the longest, contain the most of pure correspondences; for genuine poetry is identical with truth; and it is the truth, in such works, which is their living principle, and the source of their power over the mind.
