PREFACE.

The inten tion of the author in preparing tais velans for the use of schools, is to confine himself strictly to what is really useful and interesting to the learner. The treatise on elocution is very easy and intelligible, and explains the inflections of the voice very clearly. The treatise on gesture is short; but it is believed to comprise all that is essential. The collection of pieces for reading and declamation are strictly adapted to that purpose. The best specimens of pulpit eloquence, from St. Chrysostom to Lacordaire; 'ie est manly, moving, anil impassioned efforts of the tribune, froid Demosthenes to O'Counell; the most effective and persuasive triumphs of the forum, from Cicero to Curran, will be found embodied in the ORATORICAL CLASS-Book.

may speak, and polite and intelligent people may listen to without ennui or disgust.

The author hopes and trusts that the work, on the lwhole, will be fouac well suited for use in schools and nominarien
