The holly tree?
The eye that contemplates it well perceives

Its glossy leaves,
Ordered by an intelligence so wise

As might confound the atheist's sophistries.
The Curia, as we now see it, dates from the time of Diocletian,
who reconstructed it after the great fire of Carinus, A.D. 283, and
gave it the new name of Senatus. I have found in the Uffizi at
Florence and in the Kunstgewerbe Museum at Berlin, an! I have
already published, many valuable drawings by Antonio da Sangallo,
Baldassarre and Sallustio Peruzzi, and others, which preserve the
minutest details of the edifice.

Dr. BEATTY, District Inspector.
Could Nature's bounty satisfy the breast,
The sons of Italy were surely blest.
Whatever fruits in different climes are found,
That proudly rise or humbly court the ground;
Whatever blooms in torrid tracts appear,
Whose bright succession decks the varied year;
Whatever sweets salute the northern sky
With vernal lives, that blossom but to die:
These here disporting own the kindred soil
Nor ask luxuriance from the planter's toil ;
While sea-born gales their gelid wings expand

To winnow fragrance round the smiling land.
Parse fully the words in italics. (It is not allowable to jarse,
instead of a word given, one substituted for it.)

Bassanio, being so kindly supplied with money by his friend Antonio, at the hazard of his life, set out for Belmont with a splendid train.
