SECTION I.

Parse the words in italics in the following passages :

Then raising her voice to a strain
The sweetest that ear ever heard,
She sung of the slave's broken chain
Wherever her glory appeared.
Some clouds, which had over us hung,
Fled, chased by her melody clear,
And methought, while she liberty sung,

'Twas liberty only to hear. When he heard the horse stop,Come in, Dostor,” said he, “ if you have a few minutes to spare ; you were never more welcome.“I hope nothing ails either Deborah or yourself,” replied the Doctor.

SECTION II.

Write in simple prose one of the following passages :(a) I love the season well

When forest glades are teeming with bright

forms,
Nor dark and many folded storms foretell
The coming-on of storms.
The softly warbled song
Comes from the pleasant woods, and coloured

wings
Glance quick in the bright sun, that moves along
The forest openings.

.

or (b) At length the freshening western blast

Aside the shroud of battle cast,
And first the ridge of mingled spears
Above the brightening cloud appears,
And in the smoke the pennons flew
As in the storm the white sea-mew.
Then marked they, dashing broad and far,
The broken billows of the war,
And plumed crests of chieftains brave,
Floating like foam upon the wave.

SECTION III.
Analyse the following passage ;-

Cæsar, who is commonly esteemed to have been the founder of the Roman Empire, possessed very eminently all the qualities, both native and acquired, that enter into the composition of a hero, but failed of the honour, because he overthrew the laws of his own country and raised his greatness by the conquest of his fellow-citizens more than of their enemies.

SECTION IV. Write out the plurals of cow, cloth, deer, datum, quarto, factory, species, and the past tenses of the verbs strike, swing, sing, tear, split.

Give words (not more than six) derived from the Latin duco, I lead, fundo, I pour, with their meanings.

Write out the classes of pronouns with two examples of each.

(These form one question.)

SECTION V. Give the force of the prefixes in the words printed in italics in the following passages :

Scenes so singularly opposed are peculiar to beds of slate, which are both vast in clevation and easy of destruction. The comparative durableness of the rock forbids vegetation, but the exposed summits are not subject to laws of rapid destruction.

The imprudent zeal with which the nobles had supported the royal prerogative in opposition to the Commons in the commotions of the previous year, enabled Charles to depress one of the orders and to destroy the balance to which the constitution owed its security.
