Moderation, vigilance and temperance, are high and binding duties. Time robs us of all our possessions, except a quiet conscience. Let not the injuries of man overcome your fortitude; your acts of kindness may qverbalance them. The cheering hope of a better world, enables us to bear the trials of this, with a better grace. The highest wrongs and rankest troubles, which fall to the lot of man, may be traced to the love of wealth, of power, or of vain glory. Contentment is the inmate of but few families.

EXERCISES IN PARSING.--LESSON 24. Few have made any great figure in the literary world, who, in early life, did not give some evidence of a love of books. The boy that loves his school, his books, bis teacher, and his duty, and that seeks knowledge from the innate love which he bears to it; and that is lead in the right path, can, must, and will rise to greatness upon the strength of his own genius. In every station of life, such a boy, as he advances toward maturity and usefulness, will acquire solid reputation. On the farm, by the counter, at the bar, in the field, the senate, or the pulpit, in the arts, on the ocean, or in the shades of retirement, he can, he must, he will rise; he will be useful, bonoured and happy.

READING.---LESSON 2.

The fushions of the world pass away. 1. I returned to my native home;' I sat down by the fresh fountain', where I had reclined in the days of my childhood', The bleak wind', whistled through the grove in hollow murunurs', and my heart was sad'. I moistened my parched lips with the waters of the bubbling spring', but its sweetness was goue'. The tear of remembrance fell from my eye', over my cheek.

2. I raised my head from the ground', and saw, of white lilies', a maiden in sable weed'; she was lovely as beauty in tears'; yet she gladdened not my heart'. Where', said I', is Mary of the vale'? She who once glided through this grove

with the nimbleness of the fawn?. Her raven hair floating in the breeze, and her eye beaming the cheerfulness of her heart'.

GRAMMAR.LESSON 4.

Poetical Erercises in Parsing:
1. Beneath this clod, upon earth's lap of love,

Lies Coo, late tenant of the vocal grove.
Time was, when dress'd in plumes of many dyes,
He'd spread his wings and pierce the nether skies.
Now low he lies, his day of promise fled,
He's gone to mingle with the common dead.
Come, mourn his fate, let fall the ready tear,

A tribute due to worth that slumbers here.
2. When wealth to virtuous hands is given,
It blesses like the dew of heaven.
3. The happiness of human kind,

Consists in rectitude of mind.
Thus sung the sweet sequestered bard,

Soft as the passing wind;
And I recorded what I heard,
A lesson to mankind.
