READING.-LESSON 6. 3. Mary of the vale', said the maid in weeds', was fair'; she had doves' eyes'; but she sleeps beneath yon mound', where the dark, green grass', waves to the moaning wind'. Ten dreary winters have devoured the bounty of as many summers upon her lonely bed', where the cypress shades the place of her unconscious sleep' The grove that knew her, knows her no more'; for she is gathered to the place of her fathers!

4. Her betrothed went to the war'; his arm was strong in battle'; he was terrible to the foe', and victory perched on his brow'. But his Mary faded in death! He too is at rest'; the trump of war', breaks on his ear no more'. He gathers not again to the banner of his country'; for he is gathered in the pale drapery of the grave'.

5. When the clarion of war', sounded the high note of victory', and the sweet voice of peace was again heard in the land', he returned to the home of his boyhood', covered with honours', and loaded with spoils'; but his Mary was gone'; the dreams of his early love', had vanished upon the wings of the viewless wind'.

6. He had returned to the home of his fathers', but he was alone'. The bitterness of wormwood was in his cup'. Grief dined upon

bis vitals at the seat of life', and the canker worm lay at ihe silver chord'. In the heaviness of his soul', he gate up the ghost.

Poelical Exercises in Parsing.
1. I stood upon a misty hill,

But I was young no more,
For time, with many a winter's chill,

My cheeks had furrow'd o'er.
2. Methinks it were no pain to die,
On such an eve, when such a sky

O'er canopies the west;
To gaze my fill on yon calm deep,
Then, like an infant, fall asleep,

On earth, my mother's brea: t.
3. I cannot doff a human fear;
I know thy greeting is severe,

To this poor shell of clay;
Yet, come, grim death, thy freezing kiss,
Emancipates;--thy rest is bliss;

I would, I were away.
4. With sweetly soothing note, he'd catch the ear,
And draw from beauty's eye, the trembling tear.

Nay', tremble not' at love's intent';

Like fancy's rainbow dream of love',
Guiding our steps where angels tread',

Tarough the clear sky on zephyr's pinions flying,
On the young flow'ret's opening bosom lying;
Perfume, and light, and the blue air inhaling;
Shaking the thin dust froin its wings and flying,
And fading like a breath in boundless heav'n:
"This is the Butterfly's enchanted being;
Now like desire to which no rest is given,
Which, still uneasy, rifling every treasure,
Returns, at last, to God for purer pleasure.
2. Honour the heart that will not bend

Beneath affliction's blast;
That puts its trust in God, its friend,
For its reward at last.

Some sail the wide seas o’er';
And never dread', the wave's death bed',

Tho' far from any shore!

High up the reeling mast';
And feel a pride', safe there to ride',

Heedlessly', in the blast'.

For many a truant child',
Have sadden'd life', 'till', with the strife

Of hope and fear', grown wild";
4. They', side by side', have lain and died',

By their own son forgot';
Who', o'er the sea', nigh mad with glee',

Blesses his happy lot'.
5. And boys I've seen', who'd never been

Where ships could sail before',
As if in quest of some bird's nest',
Ransack the


all o’er!
6. They'd stout as loud', from top-mast glirane,

Which rattl'd in the breeze',
As if at play', on summer's day',
Mid boughs of apple-trees'.
