-> Parent of learning, Language, art divine ! Its vast foundations were by Number said, To God we owe thee, as his gift benign; By Weight and Measure, and by Wisdom's aid. Grammar, and Logic too, descend from thee, “Knowledge is power,” a truth by all confess'd, Rhesis, Belles Lettres, and sweet Poesie. If rightly used and heav'nward bound, is biess'd : Nor less those gifts are His, who rules the skies, Deep study only is the way to gain Which teach us how to measure, and to rise That learning, which brings Wisdom in its train. From earth to heav'n ; by truths of Geometrie, Nature unfolds to view her kingdoms three, To scan the land and comprehend the sea. And of her laws, reveals the mysterie; For when Almighty Power created all, Drink deep, my friends, of her perennial stream, And spann'd with compass this terrestrial ball, And bask in Wisdom's all-reviving beam.

A GLANCE at the opposite Index will show to the purchasers of this volume what we have done, and are now doing, for the Education of the People. Our exertions have met with wide-spread and heart-felt encouragement, and we gratefully express our acknowledgments for the same. We shall make it our endeavour still more to deserve the encouragement of our subscribers, by increased efforts for their advancement in knowledge and learning. We intend to finish in the next volume, if possible, all the subjects which have been begun in this volume. Of course, it cannot be expected, under such circumstances, that we can commence a great variety of new subjects; as we wish to do justice to those which we undertake. Some of these, however, may be mentioned, as Penmanship, Short-hand, Mechanics, Chemistry, Astronomy, and Natural Philosophy. We have still much to do in Arithmetic, Geometry, and Geography, subjects of the greatest importance to the community at large, and subjects well calculated to expand, improve, and strengthen the reasoning powers; but as the bow must not be always bent, we shall endeavour, from time to time, to relieve these with lighter studies, as we have done in the present volume.
