Could someone help me with unwinding the meaning of a sentence in Lingua Latina Pars II (p.32) which reads:

Ergō parte mūrōrum dēstrūctā māchina illa hostibus armātīs plēna magnō labōre in urbem trahitur fūnibus, dum puerī puellaeque carmina sacra canunt et fūnem manū contingere gaudent.

Please include a brief descriptive grammar justifying the translation.

Conatûs vestigia sternas ut alii te adjuvent. Rationes grammaticas et breves dones quae indicant cur sic vertas.

Sorry, an identical post is already dealt with.
Jam alibi destinata haec epistula vel epistula gemina.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
