VOLUME THE FIRST.

Parent of learning, Language, art divine !
To God we owe thee, as his gilt benigo;
Grammar, and Logic too, descend from thee,
Khesis, Belies Lettres, and sweet Poesie.
Nor less those gifts are llis, who rules the skies,
Which teach us how to measure, and to rise
From earth to heav'n ; by truths of Geometrie,
To scan the land and comprehend the sea.
For when Almighty Power created all,
And spann d with compass this terrestrial ball,

Its vast foundations were by Number laid,
By Weight and Measure, and by Wisdom's aid.
“Knowledge is power,” a truth by all confess'd,
If rightly used and heav'nward bound, is viess'd :
Deep study only is the way to gain
That learning, which brings Wisdom in iis train.
Nature unfolds to view her kingdoms three,
And of her laws, reveals the mysterie;
Drink deep, my friends, of her perennial stream,
And bask in Wisdom's all-reviving beam.

TO OUR READERS.

A GLANCE at the opposite Index will show to the purchasers of this volume what we have done, and are now doing, for the Education of the People. Our exertions have met with wide-spread and heart-felt encouragement, and we gratefully express our acknowledgments for the same. We shall make it our endeavour still more to deserve the encouragement of our subscribers, by increased efforts for their advancement in knowledge and learning. We intend to finish in the next volume, if possible, all the subjects which have been begun in this volume. Of course, it cannct de expected, under such circumstances, that we can commence a great variety of new subjects; as we wish to do justice to those which we undertake. Some of these, however, may be mentioned, as Penmanship, Short-hand, Mechanics, Chemistry, Astronomy, ana Natural Philosophy. We have still much to do in Arithmetic, Geometry, and Geography, subjects of the greatest importance to the community at large, and subjects well calculated to expand, improve, and strengthen the reasoning powers; but as the bow must not be always bent, we shall endeavour, from time to time, to relieve these with lighter studies, as we have done in the present volume.
