A MAP. A Map of the World is gen -al-ly formed of two large cir-cles.

THE MAP OF THE WORLD. The two parts of the Map of the World are calledThe East-ernt and the West-ernt Hemisphere.

* An Act of Parliament, regulating the trade of chimney sweeping, and the apprenticeship of children, and forbidding calling "sweep" in the streets, was passed 1834. In 1840 another Act was passed rendering it unlawful for master sweeps to take apprentices under 16 years old ; and no individual under 21 was to go up a chimney after 1st July, 1842. The enforcement of this law was made more stringent in 1864, and many cruelties, to which young persons, employed as chimney sweepers, were often subjected, have been done away with.

THE MAP OF THE WORLD. The Western Hemisphere contains one continent-America.

America is divided into two parts, North and South America. The Western Hemisphere is often called "The New World.”

A long while ago we knew nothing about the Western Hemisphere, and about America. At last a clever man, called CHRIS'-TO-PHER CO-LUM'-BUS, sailed to it, in the year 1492 (about 400 years since). After that many people went from England, and from other countries, to live there, and

now America is one of the most important parts of the world. Or write 30 spellings out of any book, each word having six or more
