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 can be practised, we know of no method more convenient, than that of going by water, in vessels or boats.
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 not great.
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 lifteth 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.
Thenthey 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,
Then bring me all your books again :-
Now, don't you think, you'll blush to own,
O dear, Mamma, said Mary then,

Down in a green, and shady bed,
Its stalk was bent, it hung its head,
And yet it was a lovely flow'r,
Yet there it was content to bloom,
And there it spread its sweet perfume,
Then let me to the valley go,
My father and mother are dead,
The sight made me bitterly cry:
In hopes some protector to see ; Alas! but the search was in vain,
For none had compassion on me I cast my eyes up to the sky,
I groan'd, though I said not a word; Yet God was not deaf to my cry;
The friend of the fatherless heard O yes, and he graciously smil'd,
And bid me on him to depend; He whisper'd-fear not, little child, For I am thy father and friend.
DEATH OF AN INFANT.
One hour what beauty deck'd its face! What blending smiles with white and red! A moment, and its lovely grace,
And all its active powers are fled. Who could behold with tearless eye,
And witness such a heartfelt scene, Born just to weep, and smile, and die,
Nor understand what pleasures mean
