Some passing clouds assuage the excessive heat; refreshing gales descend from the lofty mountains; and at noon, fresh breeze's arise from the ocean, which purify the air.

The ground yieldeth an abundant increase ; and fruits and herbs, in constant succession, cover the face of the vallies.

There the terrors of the Lord are known; there, in the awfulness of his power, he maketh his greatness manifest.

The storms descend from the tops of the mountains, and the thunder is heard in dreadful peals.

The lightning blazeth through the air, and the rain descends in torrents.

The roaring of the wind is heard from afar;

The whole face of nature smileth again, and his mercies are extended to men.

Have patience with a man in low estate, and delay not to show him mercy.

If a man show no mercy to his neighbour, how can he ask parden of God ?

There is nothing of so much worth, as a inind well instructed,

Many ways are used by different people to facilitate the labour of travelling, and conveying heavy articles from place to place.

Horses, and other animals, are trained, to carry people and burdens on their backs, and to draw various kinds of carriages.

But where it cau be practised, we know of no method more convenient, than that of going by water, in vessels or boats.

[ocr errors]

Boats are used for crossing rivers, going to market, catching fish, and many other purposes :

And they form a very pleasant and agreeable mode of going from place to place, across the water, when the distance is notgreat.

And in large ships we may cross the ocean, and visit the most distant parts of the earth.

In going short distances, small boats are made to pass through the water, by means of paddles or oars.

But some boats, and all large vessels, have sails; and the wind blows them swiftly and gently along.

It is very pleasant to sail on the water, but children should never venture in boats alone.

For he commandeth,and raiseth the stormy wind, which didieth up the waves thereof :

They mount up to the heaven; they go down again to the depths; their soul is. melted because of trouble.

They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit's end.

Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble,and he bringeth them out of their distress.

He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves are still.

Then are they glad, because they be quiet; so he bringeth them to their desiredhaven,

Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men.

And so you do not like to spell,
Mary, my dear; ( very well;

Tis dull and troublesome you say ;
And you had rather be at play.

Then bring me all your books again :
Nay; Mary, why do you complain?
For as you do not choose to read,
You shall not have your books, indeed.

So as you wish to be a dunce,
Pray go and fetch me them at once ;
For if you will not learn to spell,
"Tis vain to think of reading well.

Now,don't you think,you'll blush to own,
When you become a woman grown,
Without one good excuse to plead,
That you have never learn’d to read?

O dear, Mainma, said Mary then,
Do let me have my books again, ,
I'll not fret any more indeed,
If you will let me learn to read.
