INDUCTIVE GRAMMAR.

comfortable homes could have shielded you from the wintry air; our abundant harvests have supplied you in time of famine ; and the broad shield of our beloved country have sheltered you from the visitations of arbitrary power! We come, in our prosperity, to remember your trials; and here, on the spot where NewEngland began to be, we come to learn, of our pilgrim fathers, a deep and lasting lesson of virtue, enterprise, patience, zeal, and faith!

E. EVERETT.
