great pleasure.. -You .must study to .'be

child of honesty and courage. Say just
Whatqou mean to do on every ocoaaion,
and take it for granted you mean to do

plainly why you cannot ; you will wrong
him and wrong yourself by equivocation

at a sacrifice.. Deal kindly, but ;firmly,

the policy which wears best. Above all
do not appear to others what you are not.
If you have any fault to find with any

In regard 'to duty, la 4 tie, in conclusion
of this hasty hitter, inform you that nearly
.hundred years ago IteFe — was a day of
remarkable gloom and darknesa—pstill
nown as the dark day—a day when the
light of the 11.111 was slowlyextinguished,
as if by an eclipse. The. Legislature of
Connecticut was in session, and as its
members saw the unexpected and, unit&
ociuntable darkness coming off', they
shared in the general awaand terror. It
was supposed by many that the last day
—the day ofjudgment—hadconie. Some
one, io the consternation of the hour,
moved an adjouiliment. Then there arose
an old Puritan. legislator, Davenport/ of
Stamford, and skid that if the last day had
come, be desired to be found at, his place
doing his duty, and, therefore, moved
that-candles be brought in so that the
house could proceed with it duty. There
was quietness in that man's mind, the
quietness of heavenly wisdom and index•
ible willingness to obey present duty.—
Duty, then, is the sublimeat word in our
language. Do your duty in all 'things
like the old Puritan. You cannon do
more ; you should never wish to do lees. w
Never lit me and your mother ear one
gray hair for anydack of duty on your part.
Your affectionate father,

A few years since, Squire,G. was keep

Indiana; It was just after the war with
Ilexico, and the volunteers had been dia•
banded, and were on their way hotne,
that among others that stopped at Squire'
O.', hotel •was a volunteer who carried
under his arm a cigar Sox. 'To the ques
tion if ,he could spend the night, the
Squire answered in the affirm ative..
"Give me your box," said the Squire.
It was handed to him, and he was about
placing -it under the bar room counter,
when the volunteer remarked, that Lbeiti
was a great curiosity in that box. f
"Ah 1" said the Squire, "I should like
to lee it."
The volunteer took the box, drew back
the lid. and e*posed to view one of those
horned frogs peculiar to 'Mexico. The
Squire, as he had never seen its like be
fore, took dui box and exhibited it to the
family, as weft as to several boaldifrabout

The Squire found he way fairly caught,
