them anto many =hort picces. Among
these mstruments used i the curous
process of manufacturing language out
of sounds, may be found the tongue, the

i= a 0 very mnportant instrament ino this
chest of speaking tools, But whether to
call it an ary a saw, or a planc, or some
tuing clsey | confess | hardly can deter
mine, Perhaps it is sometunes one and
sometimes another, Let this point be as
it may, the unportance ol the tongue in
the wonderful operation of dividing these
sonorous poles into short pieces, 1= clear-
Iy aduntted in the fuct that the nstiu

Printing and wniting are properly the
notes of lunguage, and bear the same
vieartous relation to this nstrument,
which the notes in music bear to the real
music. DBut as printing and writing com
nuncate our ideas, they o function,
identity themselves with the great Lin
wue wnstrument—and therofore these rep
resentatives have come to be called by
the name of the thing represented —hence
we have the phrases, “written language,
and printed language,” as well as *“*spok
en language.” But language in the
true, confined sense of the word, 1s that
instrument which is formed out of’ voice
by a marvellous play of wonderful organs
upon sounds which are first produced by
the actions of the wind pipe upon the
air which proceeds from the lungs,
It has long been a contested point
whether language is a divine revelation,
or a human production. But when we
Ctrace it from causeto effect, we see more
| than numax caleulation. Man consists
of two parts, a body and a mind; this is
!Journv.\'ing through lite in that. Thus,
the mind becomes a passenger; the body
his chariot; ideas his baggage; the earth
his inn; hope his food; and another
world his destination. And such is the
relation between the passengers while on
the way; that they are compelled to in
terchange theivideas, And for this pur
pose, cither Goo has furnished them
with language, a ready means for this
exchange, or the PASSENGERS THEM
SELVES have made this strument,.—
When we reflect upon the passenger’s
connexon with his chariot; when we sece
him drawing to himself; through organic
avenues, the various objects which con
stantly surround ity we discover what we
cannot comprehend-—buty when we be
hold liim axvivsina these objeets, forin
g corrECT notions of their component
parts, and, with vocal organs attached to
his vehicle, converting the air into sounds
tor the commuuication of those notions,
we dwindle away betore the magnitude
of the problem!
- Whether language is of divine or hu
man origin, it, hke a human being com

TIHE PROPOSED RURAL CLEMI
TIERY.
At the late session of the General
Courty an act was passed, enlarging the
powers of the Horticultural Society,
such a manner as to enable it to establish
a rural cemetery; i connection with the
experumental gardeny which forms a part
of the original plan of that Society.—
Preliminary steps have been taken to ex
ercise the powers grauted l"\ this addi
tional act ot incorporation. The subject
has been under the considerution ol a
large and Inghly respectable conmttee,
selected tor thewr known interest i the
designg and a plan of measures to be pur
sued, tor carrving the object into clivet,
has been prepared and adopted. This
plan s contained the tollowing report,
which has been accepted by the Society.
The Committee to whom was referred

the Experimental Garden and Cemetery,

lots located in the said tract, containing
not dess than two hundred square feet
cach, atthe price of sisty dollars for each
lot, the subscription notto be binding un
til one hundred lots are subseribed for,
3. That when a hundred or more lots
are taken, the right of chotee shall bo
dizposcd ol at an auction, of which sca
sonable notice shall be given to the sub
scribers,
1. T'hat those subseribers, who do not
olfer a preminm for the right of choosing,
shall have their lots assigued to them by
lot.
9. That the fee of the land shall be
vested i the Massachusetts Horticultu

agreeably to an aet of the Legislatare,
respecting the same, shall be secured to
the subscribers, their heirs and assigns
forever,

Risolred, That the Report of the Com
mittee on an Experimental Garden and
Rural Cemetery, be accepted, and that
eiid Committee be authorized to proceed
i the establishment of a Garden and
Cemetery, in conformity to the Report
which has this day been made and ac
cepted,
The spot, which has been selected for
this establishment, has not been chosen
without great deliberation, and a refer
ence to every other place in the vicinity
of Boston, which has been named for the
same purvose. o fact, the difliculty of
finding a proper place has been for sev
cral years the chief obstacle to the exe
cution of this project. T'he spot chosen
is as near Boston as s consistent with
perteet security from the approach of
those establishiments; usually tound in the
neighborhood of a large town, but not
harmony with the character of a place of
burtal. It stands near a fine sweep in
Charles River. It presents every vari
ety ol surlace, nsig in one part into a
beautiful elevation, level in others, with
intermediate depressions, and a consider
able part of the whole covered with the
natural growth of wood. In fact, the
place has long been noted for its rural
beauty, its romantie seclusion and its fine
prospect; and it is confidently believed,
that there 18 not another to be named,
possessing the same union of advantages,
It 15 proposed to set apart a consideras
ble portion of this delighttul spot, for tha
purpose of a burtal place. Little will bo
required from the hand of Art to fit it for
that purpose. Nature has already done
almost all that i required, Scarcely any
thing 1= needed but a smtable enclosure;
and such walks as will give access to the
different parts of the enclosed space, and
exhibit s features to the greatest advans
tage. It is proposed, (as it appears from
the report above cited,) to divide the
parts of the tract, best adapted to that
purpose nto lots, contaiming two hun
dred or more square feet, to be used by
individuals becoming proprietors of them,
for the purpose of burial. It will be at
the option of those interested to build
tombs of the wsual construction on thesa
lots, or to make graves in them, when
occasion may require; wentifving the lot
by a smgle monument, or the graves by
separate stones or leaving the whole
without any other ornament, than the
green turf and the overshadowing trees,
By the act ofthe legislature, authoriz
ing the horticultural society to establish
this cemetery, it is placed under the pro
tection of the Laws, aud consecrated to
the perpetual occupancy of the dead
Being connected with the adjacent ex
