1. Der Adel steigt von seinen alten Burgen

Und schwört den Städten seinen Bürgereid;
3m úechtland chon, im Lurgau hat's begonnen;
Die edle Bern erhebt ihr herrschend Haupt;

Freiburg ist eine fich're Burg der Freien;
2. Die rege Zürich waffnet ihre Zünfte

Zum kriegerischen Heer,—es bricht die Macht
Der Könige fich an ihren en'gen Wällen-
Die Fürsten seh' ich und die edeln Herrn
In Harnischen herangezogen fommen,

Ein harmlos Volk von Hirten zu bekriegen.
3. Auf Tod und Leben wird gekämpft, und herrlich

Wird mancher Paß durch blutige Entscheidung.
Der Landmann stürzt sich mit der nackten Brust,
Ein freies Opfer, in die Schaar der Lanzen !
Er bricht fte, und des Adels Blüthe fällt,

Es hebt die Freiheit stegend ihre Fahne.
4. Drum haltet fest zusammen—fest und ewig-

Kein Ort der Freiheit sei dem andern fremd-
Hochwachten stellet auß auf euren Bergen,
Daß sich der Bund zum Bunde rasch versammle-
Seit einig-einig-einig-

MECHANICS.

1. Define the following terms:--force, equilibrium, resultant, rigid body.

What three elements determine a force ?

2. Enunciate the “ Parallelogram of Forces," and prove it so far as the magnitude of the resultant is concerned.

(i.) Two forces act on a particle in directions inclined at a right angle to one another; their resultant is 13 lbs., and one of the forces is 12 lbs.: find the other force.

(ii.) Two forces of 14 lbs. and 16 lbs. respectively act on a particle at an angle of 60°; find the magnitude of

the resultant. Only 3. Define the terms "vertical direction, " " horizontal plane," "weight," "centre of gravity.”

4. Find the centre of gravity of a parallelogram consisting of a lamina of uniform density and thickness.

5. When a body can turn freely about a fixed point, it will rest with its centre of gravity either vertically above or vertically below the fixed point.

6. Explain the different kinds of lovers, and give examples of each.

Ex.: A uniform bar, 19 inches long, weighs 48 lbs., and has two weights of 12 lbs. and 16 lbs. respectively suspended from its ends; find the position of the fulcrum when the bar rests in equilibrium.

7. The chief requisite of a good Balance is “ sensibility." Define this term fully, and state the two conditions of sensibility of a balance.

8. Shew how to find the true weight of a body by a false (or unjust) balance.

Ex.: The apparent weights of a body placed in the scales of a false balance are 2 lbs. and 3lbs. respectively:

find the true weight. 9. State the laws of Statical Friction.

Explain the terms : “coefficient of friction,” “perfectly rough," "angle of friction," or "angle of repose."

10. Enunciate Newton's First and Second Laws of Motion,

11. A body is projected vertically upwards, in a vacuum, with a velocity of 640 feet per second : how high will it rise, and after what interval will it return to the point of projection ?-N.B. Take

9

= 32 feet. 12. A body is projected at an angle of 30° to the horizon with a velocity of 1024 feet per second; find its range and time of flight on a horizontal plane passing through the point of projection.
