Webster's 1913 Dictionary
 
 Definition: 
\As*sem"blage\, n. [Cf. F. assemblage. See
{Assemble}.]
1. The act of assembling, or the state of being assembled;
   association.

         In sweet assemblage every blooming grace. --Fenton.

2. A collection of individuals, or of individuals, or of
   particular things; as, a political assemblage; an
   assemblage of ideas.

Syn: Company; group; collection; concourse; gathering;
     meeting; convention.

Usage: {Assemblage}, {Assembly}. An assembly consists only of
       persons; an assemblage may be composed of things as
       well as persons, as, an assemblage of incoherent
       objects. Nor is every assemblage of persons an
       assembly; since the latter term denotes a body who
       have met, and are acting, in concert for some common
       end, such as to hear, to deliberate, to unite in
       music, dancing, etc. An assemblage of skaters on a
       lake, or of horse jockeys at a race course, is not an
       assembly, but might be turned into one by collecting
       into a body with a view to discuss and decide as to
       some object of common interest.
