A New Country. Ma. My children', I will describe a country to you', with which, I fancy, you will be pleased'. A country wholly free from volcanic eruptions', and poison winds', and yet possessed of a thousand advantages far superior to those which you refer to the sunny regions of Asia'.

Mary. Pray do tell us', Ma', where that country is'; we shall be greatly pleased to hear'.

Ma. It is that country', which', but a few years since', (comparatively') was a dense, dark, and howling wilderness'; the abode of the panther, the bear', and the prowling wolf, and of wild and savage man', more brutal and relentless than the fasting tiger

Mary. Oh, Mal! what a country'! I am sure I shall not like it!

Ma. I was barely observing what it once was', for the purpose of enabling you to understand more fully what it Norv

is'. The wilderness of which I spake', has become a fruitful field, and blossoms like the valley of Sharon! The howling beasts of prey', have gone to their dens in far distant forests', and

the untamed savage, to his hunting and fishing, beyond the blue mountains of the west).

Mary. Now', Ma', my fears are all hushed'; pray go on.

Ma. This country is adorned with every beauty of woody copse', of rising hill', and spreading dale';--of lakes that expand like seas', of broad and majestic rivers', which', rushing amid the broken fragments of the mountain cleft', or rippling through the enamelled valley', now fringed with waving wood', and now reflecting to the sky the ripening wheat field and the growing corn', wind safe their way to ocean's oozy bed'.

Jane. That must be a lovely country, indeed! I should like to sketch a view of it on paper'; I think I have the whole of it in my eye'.

Mary. You seem to refer every thing', sister', to your favourite study'; I wish I could sketch landscape too'.

Exercises in Parsing. RULE 20. Intransitive and neuter verbs, may have the same case of nouns and pronouns, both before them and after them, provided the nouns and pronouns imply the same thing, or stand in apposition. As, Mary is the girl who studies hard. In this example, the nouns Mary and girl, imply the same thing. The first, is the nominative case to the neuter verb, is;

he spend

and the latter, is in the same case after the verb, and in apposition to the first. Rule 20. I am he whom you call.' We are they who played at ball. It appears to have been he who wrote the verse. They at first took it to be her, but soon found it was not she. lle is the man whom we took him to be. He is called John. She was named Mary. His name shall be Immanuel. He seems the father of the family; or, he seems to be the father of the family. We are they.

READING.--LESSON 30. Mary. Ma', we are anxious to hear something more about the charming country which you began to describe!

Ma. That country now supports nearly twelve milkons of happy people', many noble cities', and many hundred smiling villages'. Her green vallies are dotted with thousands of beautiful white-washed cottages', shaded with the thick boughs of the peach', the pear, and the plum tree', and adorned with flowing clusters of the creeping wood-bine', and with white, and ruddy roses'. Within', the busy tenants ply the loaded

distafl", and turn the buzzing wheel'. Health is their inmate', love', their watch-word', and content', their rich reward'.

Jane. Happy cottagers'! Theirs must be life's fairest', sweetest portion'; a peace of mind', unknown to bustling crowds' and noisy routes'.

Ma. Near to the village green', which skirts the rising ground', appears the house of prayer'. Its turret, pointing to the clouds', sends forth the welcome sounds of rural pastime', or, in measured tones', calls forth the neat, though home clad throng, to pious rites'. Here', on equal ground', with equal claims', they all unite', to breathe a prayer to Hin whose even hand', has measured out their loť, and blessed them in their basket and their store'.

Mary. O! What a good and happy people! How I should like to live among them'!

Ma. in this delightful country', the smiling growth of summer, is followed by the matured luxuriance of autumn'; and the enlivening comforts of winter', by the breathing beautie of spring! With a mild and even climate', and fertile soil', even stinted labour is repaid with all the comforts and enjoy. ments of life!

Exercises in Parsing. Rule 21. The Infinitive mood or part of a sentence may be made the subject of a verb, and it is always in the third person, singular number. As: To be idle, is sinful. Here, To be idle, is a verb in the infinitive mood, used as the subject of the verb is; and is, is a neuter verb, indicative mood, present

time, and agrees with its subject, to be idle, in the 3d

person, singular number. Rule 1. Not to mourn at all, is a mark of insensibility. To read, is useful. To ride, is healthy. Reading good books, improves th: mind. To err, is human.

NOTE. The infinitive mood or part of a sentence, may be made the object of a transitive verb, or a present participle. As; Boys love to play, Mary begins to write. She is learning to sing. He is trying to skate. Learn of the mole 10 plough; of the worm to weave, of the dove to be constant; of the bee to be industrious, and of the ant to be provideni.
