III. DIOTATION. (In writing from dictation attention should be paid to clear and legible

handwriting, to correct spelling, and to proper punctuation.) [N.B.-The following extract from a memorandum sent to examiners

in the country will show the method pursued in dictating :

The examiner is requested to read the printed paper headed Dictation' at first so that the candidate may gather its general

purport; a second time slowly, that he may have ample time to o write it down ; a third time, that he may have an opportunity of

correcting and punctuating what he has written. Ruled lines should not be allowed.]

Columbus remained but a short time at the University, barely sufficient to give him the rudiments of the necessary sciences ; the thorough acquaintance with them, which he displayed in after life, must have been the result of diligent self-instruction amidst the cares and vicissitudes of a rough and wandering life. He was one of those men of strong natural genius, who, from having to contend at their very outset with privations and impediments, acquire an intrepidity in braving and a facility in vanquishing difficulties. Such men learn to effect great purposes with small means ; supplying the deficiency of instruments by the resources of their own energy and invention. This is one of the remarkable features in the history of Columbus. In every undertaking the scantiness and apparent insufficiency of his means enhanced the grandeur of his achievements.

IV. ORTHOGRAPHY.

[ocr errors]

(Time allowed, 11 hours.) Copy the following passage clearly and legibly, correcting mistakes of

spelling and grammar, but not otherwise altering either the words or their order: write figures and contractions at full

length From the geeoggraffikal possishun of the iland of Jamaka, so near the ecquater, the cleimat in the low grownds is neccessareley very hot, with littel vareashun threwout the yeer ; the days and knights, for the same reesun, is neerly of eekwell durashun, their not being more then too hours differrance betweene the longest day and the shortist. Their is very littel twylite ; and we may had, that when it is noone in Lundun, it is about sevon in the mornin in Jamaka. The meediom tempretuir of the yeer near Kingston rainjes betweene 70° and 80° ; but littel differrances of elivashun has a wundurfull affekt over the tempretuir and the sallyoubrety of the cleimat. At about 4,200 ft. abuv the leval of the see the vejetashun of the troppiks disapere and are suplantid by that of temprait rejuns. Shours is common in the hinteereer allmoste threwout the hole yeer, but they do not fall withe the saim violanse has in the planes, and the quantetey of rane aperes to be less. The ayre is exseadinley hewmidd, subject to dence foggs, and those rapped alternaishuns of tempretuir peekulyer to hall mowntane rejuns. Wheil the pestelanse of yallar fevar raijes in the low grownd and along the coaste of this iland, cutting of its thowsends anewelly, these elevaited rejuns injoy a cumpleat immewnety from its affekts; for that bain of Uroppeen life has never bin knowne, in any cleimat, to ecstend beyond the

heighth of 2,500 feet. The inhabbetents are said to injoy a degree of lonjevvety rairly ataned in othar countrys, and to exibet that ruddey glo of helth, which marckes the countinense in northern climbs, and formes a streikin contraste to the palled, sikley and dispeptik-looking ressidants of the less elevaited distriks. The midd day heet is greatly moddefyd by an enviggoreating see-breaze, which generaley prevales during the day, and is sucseaded toords evening by the lande wind from the mowntanes.

[ocr errors]

Express as concisely and clearly as you can, in your own words, the meaning of the

following passage :I. Of the various kinds of speaking or writing which serve necessity or promote pleasure, none appears so artless or easy as simple narration; for what should make him that knows the whole order and progress of an affair unable to relate it? Yet we hourly find such as endeavour to entertain or instruct us by recitals, clouding the facts which they intend to illustrate, by losing themselves and their auditors in wilds and mazes, in digression and confusion. When we have congratulated ourselves upon a new opportunity of inquiry, and new means of information, it often happens that, without designing either deceit or concealment, without ignorance of the fact, or unwillingness to disclose it, the relator fills the ear with empty sounds, harasses the attention with fruitless impatience, and disturbs the imagination by a tumult of events, without order of time, or train of consequence.
