THE NEW ENGLAND COUNTRY SCHOOL The following sketch of a Country School in New England—“as it was,” is copied from the “ Columbian Muse, a selection of American Poetry, from various authors--published by Matthew Carey, Philadelphia, 1794,"—where it is credited to the New Hampshire Spy.

“Come, we can dance to night-so you Dismiss your brain distracting crew, And come–For all the girls are there. We'll have a fiddle and a player.” “Well, mind and have the sleigh-bells sent, I'll soon dismiss my regiment.”

“Silence! The second class must read As quick as possible-proceed.. Not found your book yet? Stand-be fix'dThe next read, stop—the next-the next.
