So he despatched one of his work' men to this field, telling him to shut the gate, and then keep watch over it, and on no account suffer it to be opened.— The boy went as he was bidden; but was scarcely at his post, before the huntsmen came up, peremptorily order ing the gate to be opened. This the boy declined to do, staling the orders he had received, and his determination not to disobey them. Threats and bribes were offered, alike in vain, one after another came forward'as spokes man, but all with the same result, the boy remained immovable in his deter mination not to open the gate, yifter a while, one of noble presence advanced, v ‘ and said in commanding tones: ‘My boy, you do not know me. I am the Duke of Wellington, one not accustom ed to be disobeyed; and I eomniand you to open that gate that I and tny friands may pass through.’ The boy lifted his cap and stood uncoveied be fore the man whom all England delight ed to honor, then answered firmly: ‘I am Sure the Duke of Wellington would not wish me £o disobey orders. I must keep this gate shut, nor suffer any one to pass but with my master’s express permission.’ Greatly pleated, rffce sturdy old war* v?*m*-Ht+rA-i+rbs <r.\n hat, auu said: *1 honor the man or' boy, who can be nei ther bribed nor frightened into doing wrong; With an army of such soldiers I could conquer the wbVld.’ ibid hand ing the boy a glittering sovereign, the old Duke put spurs to his horse and galloped Away, while thfe boy ran oft' to his work,shouting at the top of liis voice: ‘Hurrah, hurrah! I’ve done what Na poleon couldn’t do—l’ve kept out the Duke of Wellington.’ Every boy is a gate keeper and his Master’s command is ‘Be thou faithful unto death.’ Are you tempted to drink, to smoke or chew tobacco? Keep the gait of your mouth fast closed, and al low no evil comparfy to enter. When evil companions would eouneei you to break the Sabbath, to lie, to deal false ly, to disobey your parents, keep tlib gate ot your ears fast shut against such enticements; and when the bold blas phemer would instil doubts of the great truths of revelation, then keep the door of your heart locked and barred against his infamous suggestions, remembering that it is only the fool who ‘hath said in his heart there is no God. 5 Immortality. —How beautiful die fol lowing gem from the" pen of George D. Prentice, and how happy the heart that ean see tlttse beauties as he por trays them : ‘‘Why is it that the rairtbow and the cloud come o’er us with a beauty that is not of earth, and then* pass away, and leave us to muse on their jaded loveliness ? Why is it that stars which hold their nightly festival around the midnight throne are placed above reach ol our limited faculties forever mocking us with their unapproachable glory ? And why is it that bright forms of hi> man beauty are presented to our view, aud then taken from us, leaving the thousand streams of affection to How back in Alpine torrents upon our hearts? We are born to a higher destiny thsfn that of earth. There is a realm where the rainbow never fades—where the stars will be set oqt before us like islands that slumber on the ocean, and where the beautiful being that passes before us like a meteor will stay in our bres ence.

Letters ot Recommendation. A gentleman advertised for a boy to assist him in his office, and nearly fifty applicants presented themselves to him. Out of the whole number, he in a short time, selected one and dismissed the rest. ‘I should like to know,’ said a friend, on what ground you selected that boy, who had not a single recommendation.’ ‘You are mistaken,’ said the gentle man; ‘he had a great many. He wiped his feet when he came in, and closed the door after him, showing that he was, careful. lie gave up his seal instantly to that lame old man, showing that he wastkiud and thoughtful.

Don’t you call those things*leiters of recommenda tion! I do, and would give more for what I can tell about a boy by using nty eyes tcu minutes than all ihe fine letters he can bring me.
