FALSE SYNTAX,-LESSON 40. Rule 27. All the parts of a sentence should correspond with each other, and a regular, dependent construction should be preserved throughout the sentence. He is more beloved but not so much admired as his brother.

This sentence is faulty, for the words more and so much have nof the same construction, nor are they under the same regimen, more requires than after it as a corresponding compensive. Thus:---He is more beloved than his brother, but not so much admired.

This dedication may serve for almost any book that has, is, or shall be published. Several alterations and additions have been made to the work.

He is more bold and active, but not so wise and prudent as his companion.

The multitude rebuked them, because they should hold

their peace.

The reward is his due, and it has already or will be here aster given to him,

Sincerity is as valuable, and even more valuable than knowlcdge.

Note. This Rule is in part a recapitulation of all the foregoing rules, It appears also to be well calculated to ascertain the true grammatica) construction of many modes of expression which no one of the other rules seems to reach. The pupil will do well to make it a subject ofçareful attention.

Dialogue between Prince Edward and his Keepes".
Ed. What brings thee now? it surely cannot be
The time of food'; -my prison hours are wont
To fly more heavily!

Keep. It is not fond': I bring wherewith’, my lord',
To stop a rent in these old walls', that oft
Hath grieved me when I've thought of you o rights”;
Through it the cold wind visits you':

And let it enter!! it shall not be stopp'd'.
IV ho visits me besides the wind of heaven?
Who mourns with me but the sad-sighing wind?
Who bringeth to mine ear the mimick'd tones
Of voices once beloved', and sounds long pass'd',
But the light wing'd and many voic'd wind?
Who fans the prisoner's lean and fever'd cheek
As kindly as the monarch's wreathed brow',
But the free pitious wind?
I will not have it stopp'd'.

Keep. My lord', the winter now creeps on apace';
lloar frosť, this morning', on our shelter'd fields',
Lay thick, and glanc'd to the up-risen sun',
Which scarce had power to melt it'.

Ed. Glanc'd to the up-risen sun'! Ay, such fair morns
When every bush doth put its glory on',
Like a gemm'd bride'! Your rusticks now
And early hinds', will set their clouted feet
Through silver webs', so bright and finely wrought
As royal dames ne'er fashioned', yet plod on

careless way, unheeding
Alas'! how many glorious things there are
To look upon! Wear not the forests now
Their latest coat of richly varied dies'?

Keep. Yes'; good my lord"; the cold chill year advances'; Therefore', I pray thee', let me close that wall'.

Ed. I tell thee no', man'; if the north wind bites', Bring me my cloak! Where is thy dog to-day?

Keep. Indeed, I wonder that he came not with me As he is wont'!

Ed. Bring hin', I pray thee', when thou com'st again, He wags his tail and looks up to my f

7 face With the assur'd kindness of one Who has not injur'd me'.


FELLOWSHIP Note. Fellowship means copartnership.

as $8000:4800::800: $480, B's share.

as $8000:2000::800: $200, C's share. Proor. The sum of all the shares, of gain or loss, will equal the whole gain or loss.

120-4430+200=800 Proof. (2) D, E, and F, trade in company; D put in $140, E $300 and F $160. They gain $120; what is each partner's share?

Ans. D's $28; E's $60; and F's $32. (3) B died worth $1800; but he owed A $1200;, B $500. and C $700,--what will each share of his estate?

Remarks on the application of the rules of grammar, to the

purposes of speaking and writing. 1 The object of studying grammar, is to become acquainted with the idiom and principles of the language, and to apply them correctly to the practical purposes of writing and conversation. To accomplish this important object, requires some careful study and patient practice.

2 It is no idle thing to become a scholar;-nor is it any very difficult thing. Every child, of common capacity and ordinary health, may become so much of one, as to be able to write and speak his native language correctly, and to conduct the usual business of life with accuracy and respectability. But knowledge must be sought; were it to grow to the
