Ma. Sugar, my child', is made from the juice of a plan known by the name of sugar cane'. It grows in the East and West Indies', and in the southern parts of America'.

Jane. I expect', Ma', I have seen pieces of the sugar cane in casks of sugar opened for sale`. Does it not grow high, like the reed'; and has it not', like that plant', alternate joints"?

Ma. It usually grows to the height of a man's head'; the bark, or skin is soft', and the inner parts', of a spungeous, pulpy nature', resembling, altogether, a very large corn stalk`. It sometimes grows an inch in diameter. What then must be its circumference?

Mary. In that casc', the diameter means through or across its centre'; and circumference, the girth or circle of it.

Jane. You are right sister; and the ratio of the circumference, to the diameter of any circle', is nearly as three to one'; hence', if the diameter is one inch', the circumference must be a fraction more than three inches'.

Ma. Very handsomely answered', my daughters'. The joints or knots of the sugar cane', are about eighteen inches apart; and near the top, several long, broad, green leaves shoot out', in the centre of which', rises a handsome blossom'. When the cane is about a year old', it becomes ripe'; the leaves are then pulled off, and the cane cut and taken to a rudle mill where they are crushed, and the juice pressed from them'; this is carried, by a pipe, into the sugar house to be boiled`.

GRAMMAR.-LESSON 48.

Of the Interjection.

An Interjection is a part of speech used to express, a feeling, an emotion, or a passion of the mind. They are of several kinds, and consist generally of insulated words, as: oh! ah! alas! &c. They sometimes extend to some length; and are then called interjectional phrases, as: oh! what matchless love!

Thy tomb, sweet robin, shall my bosom prove;
Lie here! She started! thought she felt it move!
'Twas true! the soft and snow white breast,
On which the robin lay at rest,

Wak'd it to life!

NOTE. Interjections, appear to have little or no graramatical relations or connexion with the other parts of speech, except in one or two instances, it requires a certain case of the pronoun to follow it

Hence, in parsing an interjection, merely say it is an interjection, indicative of joy, or grief, or fear, &c. as the case may be.

Dialogue

READING. LESSON 2.
between Jane, Mary, and their Mother.
Loaf Sugar, &c.

Mary. In describing the process of making sugar', you said the juice of the cane was boiled'.

Ma. Yes, it is first mixed however with lime and pot ash, which causes the oily parts to separate in the form of a thick scum, which is skimmed off the syrup'. The juice is boiled, until completely cleansed from all its impurities', and then it is sugared off; that is, boiled down to a thick consistency', which', when cool has a course sandy grit`; this we call brown sugar'.

Jane. And from the brown sugar', the loaf sugar is manufactured'; is it not ma'?

Ma. Yes'; It is again melted, however, and again clarified with bullock's blood', or the white of eggs', and then formed into loaves for market.

Mary. Bullock's blood, ma'! how filthy!

Ma. And yet you will continue to be fond of sweetmeats'! The blood', from its gummy qualities', being well stirred into the syrup, cleaves to every impurity and then rises with it to the surface where it is removed', and the syrup left pure'.

Mary. O! that is different from what I thought.

Ma. I beg', my child', that you will guard against an expression of your views, until you are perfectly acquainted with the subject in question, in all its parts, and under all its aspects'.

ARITHMETIC.-LESSON 3.
Reduction.

DEF. Reduction exhibits a method by which numbers and quantities are changed from one name to another, without ef fecting their absolute value.

Reduction is of two kinds, that by which high names are brought to low names, cailed Reduction Descending, and that by which low names are brought to high names, called Reduction Ascending.

The two kinds are respectively the precise converse of each other, and mutually prove each other.

RULE 1. When a high name is to be brought into a lower, then multiply the highest term by as many of the next lower, as will make one in that higher, and bring the next lower into the product; and so on until all the terms are respectively brought in.
