Of the melodies delivered to ns by the religion of 
former ages, perhaps that known by its commencing

“ The Portuguese”, is the most magnificent. It is very 
easily learnt with accuracy by uneducated persons. We 
will treat it in the same manner as the last.

The figures defining the time occupied by each syl¬ 
lable have not necessarily the same value as in the 
analysis of the former melody; but those which are 
related to the vibrations corresponding to the musical 
notes have the same value in both.
