GRAMMAR.

Two hours and a HALF allowed for this Paper.

SECTION I.

Parse the words in italics in the following passage:
"Hard by, a cottage chimney smokes
From betwixt two aged oaks,
Where Corydon and Thyrsis met
Are at their savoury dinner set
Of herbs and other country messes,
Which the neat-handed Phillis dresses."

SECTION II.

Write in plain prose the substance of the following

stanzas:

"There's grandeur in this sounding storm,

That drives the hurrying clouds along
That on each other seem to throng,
And mix in many a varied form;
While, bursting now and then between,
The moon's dim misty orb is seen,
And casts faint glimpses on the green.

Beneath the blast the forests bend,
And thick the branchy ruin lies,
And wide the shower of foliage flies;
The lake's black waves in tumult blend,
Revolving o'er and o'er and o'er,

And foaming as the rocky shore,
Whose caverns echo to their roar.”

SECTION III.

Analyse the following extract:

I venerate the man whose heart is warm,
Whose hands are pure, whose doctrine and
whose life,

Coincident, exhibit lucid proof

That he is honest in the sacred cause.
