General Remark.-~ The instructor will perceive, that the answers in most cases are much shorter than the questions, and frequenily embrace but one word; the design of which is to prevent the pupil from loading his mind with long and abstruse sentences (of the nature and import of which he is utterly ignorant, without giving hinuself the trouble to think ; whereas the mode that is here adopted, it is believed, is calculated to remedy this, by bringing into vigorous exercise the intellectual powers, and thus inducing a habit of thinking, by giving him a clearness of comprehension, and thereby inspiring him with a manly confidence in the correctness of his answers. On this plan nuch discrimination is to be practised (the want of which is 7 very great fault in the recital of rules) and this is easily gained, as in many instances, the answers are simply inferences deduced logically from preceding propositiolis, and in all cases, a little retlection, on the nature
of the question, and study, will enable him to give his answers, readily, and understandingly.
