LESSON 22. C. Sprague's Oration, Boston, July 4th, 1825. 1. Why, on this day, lingers along these sacred walls, the spirit kindling anthem. Why, on this day, waits the herald of God at the altar, to utter forth his holy prayer? Why, on this day, congregate here, the wise, the good and the beautiful of the land ? Fathers! Friends! It is the Sabbath day of freedom! The race of the ransomed, with grateful hearts and exulting voices, have again come up in the sunlight of peace, to the jubilee of their independence.

2. To the pious, who, in the desert regions, built a city of refuge, little less than to the brave, who, around that city,

Ycared an impregnable wall of safety, we owe the blessings of this day. To enjoy and perpetuate religious freedom, the sacred herald of civil liberty, they forsook their native land where the foul spirit of persecution was up in its fury, and where mercy had long wept at the enormities perpetrated in the abused names of Jehovah and Jesus.

3. “Resist unto blood,” blind zealots had found in the bible, and lamentably indeed did they fulfil the command. With: "Thus saith the Lord,” the engines of cruelty were set in motion, and many a martyr spirit, like the ascending prophet from Jordan's bank, escaped in fire to heaven.

4. It was in this night of time, when the incubus of bigot.. ry sat heavily on the human soul:

When crown and crosier,, rul'd a coward world,
When mental darkness,, o'er the nations curl'd;
When, wrapt in sleep,, earth’s torpid children lay,
Hugg'd their vile chains,, and dream'd their age away;--
"Twas then by faith impelled,, by freedom fir'd,
By hope supported,, and by God inspir’d,
'Twas then the Pilgrims,, left their father's graves,
To seek a home,, beyond the waste of waves;
And where it rose,, all rough and wintry here,
They swelld devotion's song, and dropp'd devotions? tear

5. Can we sufficiently admire the firmness of that little brotherhood, thus self-banished from their country ?--Unkind and cruel, it is true, but still, their country! There they were born;-and there, when the lamp of life was lighted, they had hoped it would go out. There a father's hand had led, and a mother's smile had warmed them. There were the haunts of their boyish days,--their kinfolks,—their friends, their recollections,--their all. Yet all was left;—even while: their heart strings bled at parting, all was left:—and a stormy sea, a savage waste, and a fearful destiny, were encounteredfor heaven and for you!

CIRCLES.-LESSON 23. Case 8. When the segment of a circle is given to find its area, adopt the following

Rule. 1. Find the length of the arc line, and the diameter of the whole circle, by the appropriate foregoing rule.

2. Multiply the arc line by the diameter, and divide the product by 4; the quotient will give the area of the sector

3. Find the diameter of the whole circle, and from its coi, tre draw a triangle, based upon the chord of a segment.



4. Find the area of this triangle, and subtract it from the area of the sector, and the remainder will be the area of the segment. Thus:

In the figure A, B, C, (less than a 220 semicircle,) the chord A, B, is 172ft. the chord of half the arc line, B, C, A is 104ft. and the versed line, B, D, is

172 58.48:--what is the area ?






C, D?

F 104X2=208-172=36-3=12---208=220. arc line.

220-2=110=1-2 the area, A, B, C, and 172; 2= 86=1-2 the chord A, B, and 86 X86=7396---58.48=126.47 equal D, E, F; and 126.4758. 8=148.95.=B, D, F; and 148.95;2=92.475=radius.

Then 110 X 92.475=10172.250. area of the sector. 86X34=2924 area of the angle A, E, C, and

10172.250-2924–7248.250. Ans. In the segment A, B, C, D, (greater than a semicircle,) the chord A, D=

В. 136, the chord A, C=146, and the chord A, B, 86, the radius A, E=80: what is the area of the segment A, B,


136 86X8=688—146=542:3=180.666=the arc line, and 180.666 X 80 radius=14453.280=arc of the sector. Then the chord A,D, 136 X 42 perpendicular E=5712-2=2856= arc of the segment; and 2856+14453.280=17309.280 area of the segment.

An Ellipsis.--This is an oval figure, resembling a cirelc. But it has two diameters, one longer than the other, and in this. .it dillers from a circle. The longer diameter is called the transverse, and the shorter the conjugate diameter. The area, of an ellipsis is found by the following

Rule. Multiply one diameter by the other, and the product by .7845, the last product will be the answer, Thus:-in the ellipsis A, B, C, D, the trans

B verse diameter is 21ft. and the conjugate, 17:-what is the area ?

A 21X17=357 X.78542280.3878 Ans.

REMARKS, &c.--LESSON 24. D Vision._"Cyrus commands the united armies of the Meder and Persians. His conduct is glorious, and his success

wonderful. Cresus is vanquished, and retreats into Sardis where he is closely besieged. While imploring the help of his allies, Cyrus carries on the attack, and the city surrenders at discretion. Cresus is taken and condemned to be burnt at the stake. The funeral pile is crected, and the victim laid upon it. Cresus, with death full before him, cries. “O Solon! Solon!” Cyrus immediately orders him from the pile, spares his life, and makes him his confident.”

“Sudden as the lightning's stroke,
Glances on the splinter'd oak,
At her touch the tiger springs,
With his voice, the forest rings,
One wild moment, Nilla stands,
Then seeks the wave across the sands,
With the roar of thunder hollow,
As the monster leaps to follow,
Quick and keen a venom'd dart,
Quivers in his cruel heart.
Round he reals in mortal pain,
Bites the barbed shaft in twain,
Groans and falls, and pours his breath,
In å hurricane of death."

Oh! tell me, step dame nature, tell,
Where shall thy wayward child abide ?
On what fair strand his spirit dwell,
When life has spent its struggling tide ?
Shall hope no more her taper burn,
Quench'd in the tears that sorrow sends?
Nor from the feast, misfortune spurn

The 'wishful wretch that o'er it bends?"
-Can storied urn, or animated bust,
Back to its mansion, call the fleeting breath?
Can honour's voice provoke the silent dust?
Or flatt'ry sooth the dull, cold ear of death ?"

Lafayette's Visits to America. 1. While we bring our offering for the mighty of our owti land, shall we not remember the chivalrous spirit of those who shared with them the hour of weakness and the perils of war?-Pile to the clouds the majestic columns of glory;-let the lips of those who can speak well, hallow each spot where the bold repose,—but forget not those who, with your bold, went out to the battle.

2. Among those men of noble daring, there was one, a young and gallant stranger, who left the blushing vine hills of his delightful country, and the princely mansions of his own domain. The people whom he came to succour, were not his people;—he knew them only in the wicked story of their wrongs. He was no mercinary wretch, striving for the spoils of the vanquished:--the palace acknowledged him for its lord, and the vallies yielded him their increase. He was no nameless man, staking life for reputation;--he ranked among no
