overcome by the assaults and batteries of adverse storms moors at last his crazy bark nor returns again to the tossings and troubles of life's tempestuous sea this is the land of peace to which the friendless orphan repairs out of the reach of malice and the arrows of misfortune his bed is peace and he rests from his calamities forgets his sorrows and forgives his enemies who then will dread that narrow house of rest while it offers an assylum so peaceful a hiding place so secure a relief so ample a home where the oppressor and the oppressed the bond and the free the king and the beggar are on equal terms and congregate in the same silent society who above all will dread the grave while his faith points to it not merely as a retreat from the troubles and trials of life but as the only avenue through the dark partition which separates time from eternity a continual dying from eternal life a reign of gloomy night from a cloudless glorious day the power and dominion of sin from the presence and freedom of God ay call it the place of rest the mansion of peace the haven of repose the safe retreat the hiding place and the gate way to glory and order your life aright that when you are summoned to its precincts you may contemplate its silence its drapery and its coldness in the light of faith and enter upon its possession with the assurance that the voice of the last trump will burst its rusty bolts and call you forth from its clamy envelope to the celestial abode of angels and the spirits of blessed men made perfect and to the presence and favour of him who plucked the sting from death and despoiled the victory of the grave.

READING EXERCISES, &c.--LESSON 22. There is no speech nor language.--Their voice is not heard. 1. When, thoughtful, to the vault of heav'n, I lift my wand'ring eyes, To night, resign the skies; The stars in silence shine; Which speaks its birth divine! 2. Unheard the dews around me fall, And holy influence shed; Celestial foot steps tread. Touch'd by harmonious pow'rs, They charn the lingʻring hours. And spreads his gems unheard, Yet utter not a word. And pours his golden streams, Before his rising beams. That guides the vast machine,- Retires and works unseen. Their amaranthine bow'rs; And note the passing hours. His noise, his pomp, his show, And silent work below. I'll wait the upper sphere; TRIGONOMETRY.--LESSON 23. NOTE. Trigonometry is that part of geometry which relates to the admeasurement of the sides and angles of triangles. All the properties of angles are based upon the principles of single proportion:--for, in each triangle three things are given, either all sides, or sides and angles, to find a fourth. The operation may be performed in several ways; that is. the scale of even parts, the protracter, or chord, and the dividers may be used; or a table of logarithms, and of natural sines, tangents, and secants may be employed:-and the sides of triangles may be measured by the square root as already exhibited in mensuration. Note. As a table of logarithms, sines, tangents, &c. is not contemplated in this work, it will be impracticable to illustrate the application of the principles of trigonometry to the subject of measuring angles, and their sides, beyond what has already been done in mensuration. The application, however, of the square root, to determine the length of the sides of angles, may be stated in a few distintt cases which the pupil can. not mistake. Cass. 1. When the hypotenuse and one leg of a right angle triangle are given to find the other leg, adopt the following Rule. 1. Square the hypotenuse, and also the given leg, and subtract the lesser from the greater. 2. Extract the square root of the remainder, which will give the length of the other leg. Thus:- Suppose the hypotenuse of a right angle triangle be 50ft. and the base 20ft; what is the length of the perpendicular? 50 X 50=2500, square of the hypotenuse. 900, difference of the squares, and the square root of 900 equals 30ft. Ains. Or, Suppose tho hypotenuse to be 16ft. and the perpendicular 12ft. what is the length of the base? 16x16=256 112, the root of which is 10.59, Ans. CASE. 2. When the base and perpendicular are given to find the hypotenuse, then work by the following Rule. The square root of the sum of the squares of the base and perpendicular, gives the length of the hypotenuse. Suppose the base of a right angle triangle be 40ft. and the perpendicular 30ft. what is the length of the hypotenuse? 40 X 40=1600, square of the base. 2500, sum of the two squares; the square root of which is 50ft. Or, Suppose the base to be 89ft. and the perpendicular 78.7; what is the hypotenuse? Ans. 119 nearly. The distance between the extremes of the plates upon which the roof of A's house rests, is 43ft. and the height of the roof is 16 1-2 feet; what is the length of the rafters? 25.134ft. B's kite lodged on the top of the steeple of a church which stood 45 feet from the bank of the Mohawk, and B stands on the opposite bank, 30 feet from the water:-Now the steeple is known to be 132 feet high, and the line to the kite is known to be 200 yards long, the extreme end of which is in B's hand: how wide is the river? REMARKS, &C.--LESSON 24. Faulty Composition. The world we have not seen. A world which time can never destroy Nor mortal ear caught its notes of joy More lovely than prophets ever told One half of its blessedness unfold Nor is it refreshed by soft vernal showers For its inhabitants have no evening hours With a radiance pure and all its own Pervade it poured from Gods own throne Too glorious for mortal thought to trace And move on wings with matchless grace Time never breathes on its fadeless bloom SPELLING.-LESSON 25. guage, without being properly anglesized. aid-de-camp ad de-kõng, an assistant to a general. a-la-mode ăl-ā-mode', in the fashion. an-tique ăn-tēke', ancient, antiquity.
