PRE FACE..

NOTWITHSTANDING the multiplicity of School-Books, now in nse, it has been often suggested that a Selection, calculated particularly for. Dialogue and Declamation, Rould be of extenfive utility in our feminaries.

The art of Oratory needs no encomium. To cultivate its rudiments, and diffuse its spirit among the routh of America, is the design of this Book.

Of the many pieces which this volume contains, three only are to be found in any publication of the kind. A barge proportion is entirely original. To those, who have alifted him in this part, the author returns bis warmest acknowledgments.

The COLUMBIAN ORATOR is designed for a Second Part to the AMERICAN PRECEPTOR; for this reafan, no pieces are inserted from that book..

As no advantage could arise from a methodical ar. rangement, the Author has preferred variety to system.

In his choice of materials, it has been his object to select fuch as fbould inspire the pupil with the ardor of eloquence, and the love of virtue. He has spared no pains to render the Work, in every respect, worthy of the generous patronage, which a liberal public have. bestowed on his former publications.
