Definition
to show
The exact meaning of this sense of demonstrate can depend upon its context. For example:
  • "I will demonstrate how to throw a Frisbee." — show how to do something
  • "I will demonstrate how much quicker the new computer is than the old one." — show how something works
  • "Her questioned demonstrated that she was listening and thinking deeply about what was said." — showed to be true or proved
  • The truth of this assertion might be demonstrated by innumerable passages from almost all the poetical writings, even of Milton himself.

There are no more uses of "demonstrate" in Preface to Lyrical Ballads.
