THE young reader will be convinced, by experience, that the analogy and strength of our language require the accent to be placed as far back as possible; this is the true reason why we find all our English writers placing it upon the first syllähles of our words; while we see the writers of other languages, particularly the French, placing it upon the last syllables.

Our language, though the finest in the world, could not escape the rude sarcasm of the Batavian, throwing aside his pipe and red herring, becomes an envious and clumsy critick.

Who still remembering well his disgraced navy;
His fallen broom, and tars sent down to Davy.


"Two neighbours do my unsocial bounds surround,
With whom in friendly converse, I am never found.
The one filled with beef and pudding, to his brutish chin,
Must end his few and painful words, before he well begia.
Thus must he, his cause at foreign courts prorogue,
Until he calls upon the wild-man, with his huge brogue.
The other, ever flippant on his meager soup,
Has too much lingo for a whole British troop:
For if, of foreign news, Monsieur Pertinax should tell.
He allows not an instant, to say quelle nouvelle.
His everlasting tongue, with whirlwind speed is sped;
He talks the livelong-ay, and even the whole night in bed."

Diligence, industry, and proper improvements of time, are the chief duties of youth.

Virtuous youth gradually brings forward accomplished and flourishing manhood.

Whatever useful or engaging endowments we possess, virtue is requisite, in order to their shining with proper lustre.

There is nothing, except simplicity of intention, and purity of principle, that can stand the test of near approach and strict exe; amination.

No person who has once yielded up the government of his mind, and given loose rein to his desires and passions, can telt how far they may carry.

him. Tranquility of mind is always most likely to be attained, when the business of the world is tempered with thoughtful and serious retreat.

He who would act like a wiseman, and build his house on the rock, and not on the sand, should contemplate human life, not only in the sun shine but also in the shade.
