Ma. There are many sorts of ink', and many ways of making it'; but the common ink', is made of galls', copperas', gum arabic', and water. Try', Jane', and explain these several materials

Jane. I believe galls are small bunches found in the leaves of the oak', and caused by the bite of an insect'. Copperas is nothing more than another name for vitriol'. And gum arabic is a kind of sap that exudes from a tree which grows in

Asia'; buť, in explaning water', I can only say that water is water'.

Ma. Water, my child', is a liquid fuid'; it is composed of eighty-five parts of oxygen, and fifteen parts of hydrogex'. You will understand these terms when you enter upon the subject of chemistry

Mary. We now understand all the materials used in writing a letter', if it is sealed with a wafer'; but should we use sealing wax', we should be ignorant of its parts

Ma. Sealing wax', is made of shell-lac), and rosin', coloured with vermilion'; the poorer kinds are coloured with red lead."

Mary. Pray, Ma, what is shell lac?

Ma. It is a substance, deposited on trees in the East Indies, by an insect', in its native state it is called stick lac', but wbon melted into a crust', it is called shell lac'.

Hla. Vermillion is a certain preparation of quick silver, which I do not understand'; and red lead is a preparation of lead'; of both you will obtain some knowledge when you enter upon the higher branches of study

Jane. Ma', you have mentioned two of the colours used in painting'; you will explain the others perhaps'; also how the various shades are formed'.

Ma. Some of the colours are of a mineral nature; as all the different chalks and earths'; the others are produced from vegetables', as indigo', &c!.

Jane. But the beautiful varnish which we use', can be made of neither of these substances'.

Ma. There are several kinds of varnish', adapted to different purposes!. They are all composed, however, chiefly of the several gums and spirits of wine. You will find, in some of our modern receipt books', the most approved methods of making the several kinds'.

Mary. In using paints' and varnish', we must have brushes'; of what are these made?

Ma, Brushes are of a very simple construction'; a quill is generally used, filled with camel's hair' or hog's bristles', and secured by glue'; a varnish brush', however, is made a little different; it is wide and the hair spread thin'.
