picture and a portrait of one of the Governors. After this comes the list; and, lastly, the notice board; over this there are some coloured pictures in a gilt frame, bound round with red plush; it is presented by Miss S. Mrs. B.'s room is very pretty, but I cannot remember anything more about it.

Description of a Room.

We went to see Miss B.'s room to-day, which is on the ground floor. The first thing I noticed when I went in was a cabinet full of old china. On looking round I saw that the walls were hung with pictures. On one side of the fireplace was a bracket, holding some more china. The mantle-board was high, and above it was suspended a looking-glass, framed in black and gold. Ornaments were also placed on the mantle-board. A fire was burning brightly in the tiled hearth, and the sun was shining through the half-drawn Venetian blinds. A little table containing books was standing near one of the windows.

Description of a Picture.

This picture represents four dogs, two of which are brothers. It is at night, and they are awakened by the sound of a mouse. They all jump up, frightened, and just as the white puppy is about to get out of his kennel, he sees the mouse, springs upon it with his two front paws, while the other little dogs are waiting patiently to see the result. The white puppy shows the younger ones how, when they get older, to catch mice. The kennel is made of wood, with iron bars round it. It is very large, because all the puppies have to live in it. side of the kennel is a large broom.

It is called the "First Lesson."

A mother bird had been looking for apartments suitable for hatching her young, as her abode where she lived at the present time did not suit. She at last arrived at a place where, on the wall, were these words, " Apartments to let," written on a piece of paper, and, thinking this was the very thing, she deposited her articles of" furniture" on the ground, and collected the straw

together, and there left them to go and look for necessaries. One bird after a little time came out of its shell and looked around till its eyes rested on the printing, which he could not at all make out, and seeing that he was alone, but for his unconscious brothers or sisters, he had nothing else to do but to remain where he was (as he could not fly) till his mother returned, which she did in a few minutes, much to the young one's surprise, for he did not know he had one.

VI.

Description of a Picture.

The picture shows a lot of egg-shells, out of which the little fluffy chickens are just beginning to come. It is in the night. They are in open air, and there is not much straw for them to lie on. The bits of shell are lying on the ground, and it is very cold for them, being so small. There is an empty house next to them with "Apartments to let" written on a board; and one of the little things is looking up at the house as if asking to be taken in and kept safe and warm till he grows larger and can take care of himself.
