Life is half spent, before we knew what form themselves in reading and conversation, they might accomplish the object at which they aim.

Anecdote. Spinster. Formerly, it was a maxim, that a young woman should never be married, till she had spun, herself, a full set of linen. Hence, all unmarried women have been called spinsters: an appellation they still retain in certain deeds, and law proceedings; though many are not entitled to it.

Written language-is used for com-bers and magnitude. Feeling and thought, municating information respecting persons distant from each other, and for transmitting, to succeeding ages, knowledge, that might otherwise be lost, or handed down by erring tradition. Spoken language-is used to convey the thoughts and feelings of those who are present, and are speaking, or conversing together: the former is, of course, addressed to our eyes, and the latter, to our ears; each kind having its own particular alphabet,

which must be mastered.

Notes. 1. This vocal trilled diphthonga) sound, consists

of the aspirate sound of h, modified between the end of the tongue and the roof of the mouth, combined with a vocal. 2. Or, make the name sound of r, and mix it with the aspirate, by clapping the tongue against the roof of the mouth; practice prolonging her, or purr in a whisper, trilling the r, then add the voice sound; af terwards prefix the i, and exercise as above. 3. Demosthenes, in pronounce, correctly, the first letter of his favorite art-Rhetoric: .e. he could not trill it for some time. 4. Give only one trill or clap of the tongue, unless the sentiment be very animating; as Rise-brothers, rise! etc. "Strike! till the last armed foe ex

though they vary immensely, cannot be measured: we cannot say, with strict propriety, that we love one-exactly twice as much as another; nor, that one-is three times as wise as another: because love and wisdom are not mathematical quantities: but we can measure time by seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, and centuries; space by inches, feet, yards, rods, and miles; and motion, by the space passed over in a given time.

Varieties. 1. Was the world created out of nothing? 2. Fools-draw false conclusions, from just principles: and madmen draw just conclusions, from false principles. 3.

Didst ever see

Two gentle vines, each-round the other twined,
So fondly, closely, that they had become,
Ere their growth, blended together
Into one single tree?

The wretch, condemn'd with life to part,
Still, still on kops relies,

And every pang, that rends his heart,
Bids expectation rise.

Hope, like the glimmering taper's light,
Adorns and cheers his way,
And still, as darker grows the wight.
Emits a brighter ray.

146. Keep a watchful and jealous eye over common opinions, prejudices and bad school instruction, until the influence of reason, nature and truth, is so far established over the ear and taste, as to obviate the danger of adopting or following, unquestionable errors, and vicious habits of reading and speaking: extended views, a narrow mind extend. To judge righteously of all things, preserve the mind in a state of perfect equilibrium, and let a love of truth and goodness govern all its decisions and actions.

W, has but one consonant sound, and one vowel sound; WOO; a wan-ton wag, with woful words, be-wail-ed the well wish-er of the wig-wam; the dwarf dwells in the wea-ry west, [Win WOO.] where wom-en weave well the warp of life, and win-ter winds wan-der in the wild swamps, that wail and weep: the wa-terwitch, al-ways war-worn in the wax-works, war-bles her watch-word to the weath-erwise, and re-wards the wick-ed with weep ing, wail-ing and worm-wood.

Proverbs. 1. It is easier to praise poverty, than to bear it. 2. Prevention-is better than cure. 3. Learn wisdom by the follies of others. 4. Knowledge, without practice, makes but half an artist. 5. When you want any thing, always ask the price of it. 6. To cure idleness, count the

tickings of a clock. 7. It costs more to revenge injuries, than to endure them. 8. Conceited men think nothing can be done without them. 9. He, that kills a man, when he is drunk, must be hung when he is sober. 10. An idle man's head, is the devil's work-shop. 11. God makes, and appar el shapes. 12. Good watch prevents harm.

The Difference. Two teachers apply for a school; one-is ignorant, but offers to teach for twelve dollars a month; the other -is well qualified for the station, and asks twenty-five dollars a month. The fathersweigh the souls of their children against money, and the twelve dollar teacher is employed. A man in search of work asks a farmer, if he does not want to hire a hand? If I can find one to suit me," the farmer replies: and then he puts a variety of quesreap? chop? cradle? hoe? dress flax ? &c." tions to him; such as,-"Can you mow? Soon after, another stranger calls, and asks 148. By separating these elements of lan- whether they wish to hire a teacher in their guage, and practicing on them, each by itself, district?

149. Irregulars. U has this sound in certain words: the an-guish of the an-ti-quary is as-sua-ged with lan-guid man-sue-tude, for the con-quest over his dis-tin-guish-ed per-sua-sion: the guide dis-gui-ses his assue-tude of per-sua-ding the dis-sua-der.

In sword, two, answer, it is silent: w also before r, wrap, wrack, wreath, wrist, wrong, etc. blow, who, knowledge, whom, whose, whole, whoop, etc. 4. Practice changes on w and e, as found under 21 f. 5. He who a watch would wear, two things must do, pocket his watch, and watch his pocket too.

Anecdote. A Scold. Foote, a celebrated comic actor, being scolded by a woman, said, in reply, I have heard of tartar- -and brimstone; you are the CREAM of the one, and the FLOWER of the OTHER.

"Ask for what end-the heavenly bodies shine?
Earth-for whose use ?—Man answers, "Tis for mine ;
For me-kind nature wakes her genial power,
Suckles each herb, and spreads out every flower;
Annual for me-the grape, the rose renew
The juice nectareous, and the balmy dew:
For me-health-gushes from a thousand springs ;
For me-the mine-a thousand treasures brings,
Sens roll--to waft me, suns—to light me rise,
My foot tool-earth, my canopy-the skice."

No duty, imposed by necessity, should be considered a burthen. 5. To act from order, is to act from heaven. 6. Truth, however little, does the mind good. 7. True love always gives forth true light, false light agrees not with the truth, but lightly esteems it; and also, seems to itself, to be better than truth.

Great were the hearts, and strong the minds,
Of those, who framed, in high debate,
The immortal league of love, that binds
Our fair, broad Empire, State with State
And deep the gladness of the hour,
When, as the auspicicus task was done,
In solemn trust, the sword of power,
Was giv'n to glory's unspoil'd son.
That noble race is gone; the suns

Of fifty years have risen, and set;
But the bright links, those chosen ones
So strongly forged, are brighter yet.
Wide-as our own free race increase-
Wide shall extend the elastic chain,
And bind, in everlasting peace,
State after State, a mighty train.

150. Two grand objects are to be accomplished by these lessons and exercises: the acquiring a knowledge of the vowel and consonant sounds, and a facility in pronouncing them by means of which, the voice is partially broken, and rendered flexible, as well as controllable, and the obstacles to a clear and distinct articulation removed: therefore, practice much, and dwell on every elementary sound, taking the letters separately, and then combining them into syllables, words and sentences.

151. Two of the three sounds of X: first, name sound; or ks, when at the end of accented syllables, and often when it precedes them; if followed by an abrupt consonant. AXE: the cox-comb ex- [X in AXE.] pe-ri-en-ces the lux-u-ry of ex-pa-ti-a-ting on the ex-plo-sion of his ex-ces-sive ex-al-ta-tion of the bux-om fair sex; being anx-ious to ex-plain the or-tho-dox-y and het-o-dox-y of Ex-ag-o-nus, the ex-pos-i-ter ex-po-ses the ex-ploit, of ex-pect-ing to ex-plain how to ex-crete ex-cel-lent texts by ex-cru-ci-a-ting the wax of the ex-cheq-uer.

152. A good articulation-consists in giving to every letter in a syllable, its due proportion of sound, according to the best pronunciation; and, in making such a distinction between the syllables, of which words are composed, as that the ear, without difficulty, shall acknowledge their number, and perceive, at once, to which syllable each letter belongs. When these things are not observed, the articulation is in that proportion, defective: the great object is—to articulate so well, that the hearer can perfectly understand what is read or spoken, without being obliged to have recourse to a painful attention. A good articulation is the foundation of good delivery: as the sounding of the musical notes with exactness, is the foundation of good singing.

Proverbs. . If better were within, etter would come out. 2. Jests, like sweetmeats, have often sour sauce. 3. Keep aloof from quarrels ; be neither a witness, nor a party. 4. Least said, the soonest mended. 5 Little boats should keep near shore; greater ones may venture more. G. Some are more nice than wise. 7. Make a wrong step, and down you go. 8. We all live and learn. 9. Riches, (like manure,) do no good, till they are kitchen fire. 11. Some-would go to the devil, if spread. 19. Silks and satins often put out the they had authority for it. 12. Love virtue, and abhor vice. 13. Good counsel has no price.

Anecdote. Matrimony. A father, wishing to dissuade his daughter from all thoughts of matrimony, quoted the words: "She who marries, doeth well; but she who marries not, doeth better." The daughter, meekly replied, "Father, I am content to do well; let those do better, who can."

Boundaries of Knowledge. Human reason-very properly refuses to give its assent to any thing, but in proportion as it sees how that thing is, or is done. Now, there are three directions-in natural science, The astronomer-sees-and feels a diffiwhich are attended with their difficulties. culty-in getting from the solar system—to the universe; the chemist, in proceeding from matter to its mysterious essence; and the physiologist, in advancing from the body-to the soul; three kingdoms of knowledge-bordering on kingdoms-unknown 10 natural science. Without reason, man could consequently, could not become a rational never become elevated above his senses, and, and intellectual being, and, of course, not MAN, in the true sense of the term. But our minds are so constituted, that after having traversed the material creation, and perceived, scientifically, the very boundaries of matter, where it is adjoined by spirit, it can elevate itself, by a power, constantly given by God, to the lower boundaries of spirit, where it touches upon matter, and then, by its derived powers, ascend step by step, to the great AM; whom to know chief good of man. aright, and whom to love supremely, is the

Varieties. 1. When man sins, angels WEEP, and devils REJOICE. 2. True polite.

153. Play upon Xes. Charles X. x-king of France, was xtravagantly xtolled, but is xceedingly xecrated. He xperienced xtraordinary xcellence in xigencies; he was xcel-ness, springs from the heart. 3.

Notes. 1. To produce this diphthongal aspirate sound, whisper the word kiss, and then repeat it, and leave out the i; k': one of the most unpleasant sounds in our language. 2. Since the word diphthong merely signifies a double wound, there is no impropriety in calling double consonants, diphthongs, as we do certain vowels. 3. All critical skil! 'n the sound of language, has its foundation in the practical knowledge of the nature and properties of these elements: remember this and apply yourself accordingly. In all cases, get the propet sounds of letters, as given in the keywords, or first examples.

that, which makes every body sick, except those who swallow it? Flattery. 4. Science has no enemy, but ignorance. 5. Be not too brief in conversation, lest you be not understood; nor too diffuse, lest you be troublesome. 6. Simplicity, and modesty, are among the most engaging qualities of every superior mind. 7. We live in two worlds, a natural and a spiritual one.

I would never kneel at a gilded shrine,
To worship the idol-gold;

I would never fetter this heart of mine,

The only light, save that of Heaven,

That should free-will homage find

154. Reading-should be a perfect fac-| simile of correct speaking; and both exact copies of real life: hence, read just as you would naturally speak on the same subject, and under similar circumstances: so, that if any one should hear you, without seeing you, he could not tell whether you were reading or speaking. Remember that nothing is denied to industry and perseverance; and that nothing valuable can be obtained without them.

155. The second sound of X is that of gz, generally, when it immediately precedes the accent, and is followed by a vowel sound, or the letter h, in words of two or more syllables; EXIST; the ex- [X in EXIST.] hor-ter is ex-haust-ed by his ex-u-ber-ant exor-di-um, and desires to be ex-on-er-a-ted from ex-am-in-ing the ux-o-ri-ous ex-ec-utive; an ex-act ex-am-in-a-tion into the ex-agger-a-tions of the aux-il-li-a-ries ex-hib-its a lux-u-ri-ant ex-ile, who ex-ist-ed an ex-ot-ic in ex-em-pla-ry ex-al-ta-tion.

156. The letters o, and e, in to and the, are long, before vowels, but abbreviated before consonants, (unless emphatic,) to prevent a hiatus. Th' man took the instrument and began t' play th' tune, when th' guests were ready to eat. I have written to Obadiah t' send me some of th' wheat, that was brought in th' ship Omar, and which grew on th' land belonging t' th' family of the Ashlands. Are you going from town? No I am going to town. Th' vessel is insured to, at and from London.

Notes. 1. To make this diphthongal vocal sound, close the teeth as if to give the sound of C, and then bring into contact the

posteriors, or the roots of the tongue, and back parts of the throat, and pronounce the imaginary word guz, several times; then omit

the u, and pronounce the g, z, by themselves: 8-2. 2. For the 3d

sound of X, see the third sound of C. 3. These elemental sounds was the favorite study among the ancients, of the greatest ability. 157. Sight Reading. To become a good reader, and a reader at sight, one must always let the eyes precede the voice a number of words; so that the mind shall have time, clearly, and distinctly, to conceive the ideas to be communicated; and also feel their influence: this will give full play to the thoughts, as well as impart power from the affectuous part of the mind, to the body, for producing the action, and co-operation, of the right muscles and organs to manufacture the sounds and words. In walking, it is always best to see where we are about to step; it is equally so in reading, when the voice walks. Indeed, by practice, a person will be able to take in a line or two, in anticipation of the vocal effort: always look before you leap.

The high, the mountain-majesty—of worth-
Should be, and shall, survive its woe;
And, from its immortality,—look forth-
In the sun's face,-like yonder Alpine snow,
Imperishably pure-beyond all things below.
