5. Lectures are the verbal instructions given by a teacher, while the hearer remains silent. Such is the knowledge which we derive from the pulpit and the professional chair.

6. Conversation is another method by which we improve our minds and augment our stock of ideas. By mutual discourse and inquiry, we learn the sentiments and opinions of others, and communicate our own; hence the benefit is mutual, and often a source of high rational entertainment.

REMARKS, &C. LESSON 36. Incentives for the improvement of the mind. 1. The mind is a most wonderful and inexplicable property. Many, of but very ordinary cast, have been found capable of being trained into activity, and of labouring for years without exhibiting any symtoms of fatigue.

2. The constant improvement of this talent, and the acquisition of knowledge, should be one great object of life. There is no time or place, no transaction or occurrence, no movement or engagement which does not offer the means of promoting these interests. While in the field, the garden, the for, est, or the grove, the house, the town, or the city, objects constantly occur, which court the eye, and nourish meditation.

3. The sky above, the ground beneath, the mineral, the vegetable, and the animal kingdoms around, present to the observation a countless variety, upon which the mind may feed with unimpaired appetite. The alternate return of day and night, the passing hours and flying minutes, teach the value and brevty of time, and the importance of employing it to the improvement of the mind.

4. Froñi the vices and follies of the world, learn to appreciate their deformity, and from thc virtues of human nature, be faithful to estimate their beauty. From the observation of every appearance in nature, and from every incident in life, be careful to draw something that may serve to increase your stock of ideas, and the amount of your natural,moral, or religious attainments.
