The Beautiful Gate?
I have read sud dreamed of a beautiful gate,
Moving on binges of -purest gold,
On the other side of the River of Death,
WhoBo waters are dark, and dreary and cold.
Many have readied that deep, dark stream.
On Its quiet brink to watoh and wait
For the messenger palo, to bear them across
Its wavelets tide to the Golden Gato.
' Tho first ono thai loft our household band
Was ono who had eyes of deepest blue.
With a brow as fair as the palo spring flower,
And a heart as pure as tho morning dow.
Long sho lav on a bod cf pain,
Long, very long, did we hopo and wait;
My angel sister, where is she non?
Shebas entered in at tho Golden Gate.
An angel came, and within her arms
8bo bore lier away to ber borne above;
I canght the gleam of ? glitt tiring band.
And beard sweet words lrom a hymn of love.
But the angel guest soon carno again.
And another one left our broken band
Another ono passed through the Golden Gate
' Into the beautiful shining Land.
Mother, obi mother, I cried io my grief,
How long on earth most I weep and wait?
"Till it pleaseth God," a voiro roplied,
To call thee home through tho Golden Gate.
Thus one by ono they all paasod away,
While I am left, lonely and desolate.
How 1 sometimta yearn for tho angel to como
And bear mo top through the Golden Gate.
ID fanoy I see my mother's face.
And my gentle sister's violet eyes;
And the rest that havo left me, I see thom too,
Looking down at mo from tho azure skioa.
When tho slanting rays of the setting sun
A glory of moiton gold creato,
A child's soft whisper readies my ear
"We are waiting tor thee at the Golden Gate.1'
When I he san moves Routh in the autumn sky,
And tho leaves their branches all forsake,
I know that I,*like, them, will dip.
And pass to my rest through tho Uoldon Gato.

FORTUNES OF JULIET CLAYBURN,
Hiss Rawleigh was looking out of thc
carriage window, wrapped in such pro?
found meditations, she did not even heai
her cousin's question, and as Miss Clay
burn vouchsafed no reply, the gentle
man continued his remarks
"It is a singular thing that Von Oppen
heirn, who lived in such intimate associa
tion with her in Ashburn, who bac such at
extravagant fondness for female society
and such an exalted idea of the divinity
of womanhood, positively dislikes her
He is too gentlemanly, to he sure, to in
dulge in animadversions where a lady ii
concerned; still to one who knows hin
ns well as myself, it is evident he noithei
admires nor respects her. His d?cid?e
disinclination to speak of her or hear he:
discussed, proves it. Well-well-mun
seems to be the word, but I suppose th?
mystery will be unravelled some day."
Bo it would, perhaps; and it were we]
also, perhaps, that Mr. Lyle knew no
the when, the how, nor the where.
"Poor Von Oppenheim! poor Voi
Oppenheim 1" resumed the gentleman
after a contemplative silence of som
moments. "What Praed calls "destiny'
December,' has thrown its blight ove
bis life. His is a hard fate. To lov
v/ith such an exclusive, absorbing pas

"Father is at last released from 'di
rance vile,'" remarked Juliet, after M
Lylo had cautiously reconnoitred tl
situation and proclaimed that the euem
had disappeared. Mr. Clayburn a\
pronched almost immediately. He spoil
cordially to Eugenia, who was on tl
Soint of introducing her cousin, win
lr. Clayburn interrupted the cor
"No need of an introduction to th
face," hu said, grasping Mr. Lyle's han
warmly. "It is either Benjamin P. Ly!
come back to life-or, it must be-it cu
be, no other than the son of my ol
comrade. Wo were like brother
Theodore-your father and I. Mau
a canty day have we had together in ot
childhood, and we were chums durit
the whole of our collegiatecourso. Ye
are suoh a living prototype of yoi
father, I can almost fancy ho stands b
fore me as I last saw bim."
"I feel gratified and honored, sir,
your kind words and your friendly r
membrance of my father,"* said M
Lylo, with ill-concealed emotion; "o
of the last words I over heard from L
lips was your name. And you were

"Yes-yes. Your mother. I undi

judgment, to be Bonding boys to foreign
conn tries, in order ko make them good
American citizens.. - Wrfs it thoa that the
Greciana, 'the tnbat pre-eminent and
celebrated of all h?tions^ ta the depart?
ment of letters, ?aa it-thus they edu?
cated tho youth of the country? Was it
thus they stimulated a happy develop?
ment of physical and mental powers; im?
planting in the mind heroic devotion and
loyalty to their native land, and instilled
those principles of uuiveisal and entire
sacrifice of everything individual to the
good of the State, which, beyond every?
thing, waa the predominant element in
their greatness and lasting renown?
Waa it by sending them to dwell for
years under a foreign sky, to breathe for
years a foreign atmosphere, to hear a
foreign tongue, and become impregnated
with foreign sentiments, manners and
customs, that they preserved the national
honor, moulded the heroes who fought
at Platea, Marathon and Salamis-made
philosophers, poets, warriors and states?
men, and engraved sueh immortal names
on the annals of fame as Sophocles,
Herodotus, Aristotle, Plato, Homer,
Xenophon, Lycurgus, Demosthenes,
Euripides, and numberless others?"
.'Butyou forget, Mr. Clayburn, that
the Greeks were themselves foremost in
civilization, refinement, and intellectual
culture. Ae early as the time of Homer,
tho language hud already attained that
marvelous degree of excellence, polished
beauty and perfection, which it is now
universally admitted to possess. In
Athena was tho renowned academy, tho
lyceum, where Aristotle taught, the
garden of Epicurus, the museum, and
numerous other public and common
schools. The city, at the height of pros?
perity and unrivaled in splendor, was the
centre of the cultivated world, the seat
of knowledge, civilization, literature and
the arts. And there, under eminent
teachers, originated that admirable sys?
tem of education, so well adapted to pro?
mote improvement in every branch of
human learning. There was evidently
nothing to be gained by sending tho
Greoian youth abroad, except to enlarge
their attainments by travel, to acquire a
desirable acqnaintance with other lands,
and, by observation, to gain a knowledge
of the usaful or curious, as developed in
the arts and sciences of other nations.
But the Roman youth, who did not dis?
dain to profit by the superior cultivation
of the Athenians and their advancement
in civil and religious instruction, were
many of them sent to Athens to be edu?
cated. Horace studied at tho academy,
and imbibed the philosophy of the Epi?
cureans-so did Ovid, also. Even Virgil
visited Athens, and was early initiated
into Grecian philosophy; Parthenius in?
structed him in the literature of thc
Greeks. So, as the youth of othei
nations eame to Athens for instruction,
as a matter of course, the Athenians dit
not go abroad for that, which they coule
obtain in its highest perfection at home
America, young and vigorous, witt
splendid elements of strength and nude
veloped powers, mny be called tin
modern Borne; but Europe, superior ii
the accumulated refinements, improve
menin, intellectual wealth and eruditioi
of centuries, holds the supremacy in tin
realm of letters-the glorious Athens o
literature, matchless and involved iu in
teileotual beauty and magnificence."
"Pshaw!" exclaimed Mr. Clayburn
"superior in artificial gloss and lnxnriou
refinement, I grant, and in that alone
for if ever iu modern times, the disinte
rested patriotism, heroic courage une
chivalric grandeur of a Kornau or ;
Grecian age, is to be eclipsed, it will b
on American soil, under an America
sky, in tho noble cause of liberty-am
not by the down-trodden minions c
European tyranny and oppression. Bu
here our argument must cease for th
present-I see we are at your door, an
here is my old friend Bawleigh."
"Dr. Bawleigh had already quitted hi
seat on the shaded porch, and was hot
bling out to the vehicle to greet its ic
mates. He was a jolly, rotund, rec
faced individual, who looked as if h
might be afflicted with the dropsy
While the elderly geutlemen were er
gaged in a profound disputation on th
subject of the crops, the state of th
country and tho political aspects of th
Limes, Mr. Lyle turned to Juliet, with th
"And do yon share, Miss Clayburn, i
your father's invincible antipathy t
"Not?t all," was the reply; "on th
contrary, I am predisposed to the ot ht
extreme, which I think equally culpabh
I find myself continually prone to attach
higher degree of excellence to everythin

ment of everything American. For it
stance, I like a genuine Lancashire cal

"On my word," Baid Mr. Lyle, langi
iQg. "you are certainly cosmopolite :
your likes. After defining your pohitic
so concisely, I readily acquit yon of an
narrow views, or hereditary prejudice i
antipathies to foreign things. I dare sa
your long residence at Ashburn, fro
under paternal discipline, has som

"Come over, Theodore," said M
Clayburn, offering his hand in adie
"como over, and we'll finish that arg
ment about foreign education. If I ci
nd a nco nothing oise in support of my
opinion, there ia one evil consequence of
a personal nature, which I can mention,
and that is, my being nearly insulted to*
doy, by an introduction to tho BOD of my
earliest friend, who has deserted his
country for a raoe of wine-bibbling,
wrangling, tobacco-smoking, beer-drink?
ing, pleasure-loving, villainous foreigners,
and become a stranger to his : own land
and his own people."
"Pray cease this tirade, father," re?
monstrated Juliet, in some trepidation.
"Mr. Lyle will not thank you for snob
an unwarrantable disparagement of him?
self and friends."
"Lot me offer the true interest and
friendship whioh I feel for him on ac?
count of bis father, in extenuation of my
words," Mr. Clayburn said, apologeti?
cally. "But I tell you, Theodore, it is
more the pity, that your father's plaus
were not carried out, and you were not
"I've no doubt of it," affirmed Mr.
Lylo, earnestly; "as for your words, be?
lieve mo, they need no apology. But if
you knew my friend Von Oppenheim,
you would have a moro favorable opinion
of tho people among whom I have been
"I am acquainted with him," said Mr.
Clayburn, an almost imperceptible color
rising to his face; "have met him several
times, and on the whole, liked him bet?
ter than any of his race it has ever been
my fortune to know. But-'can there
any good thing como ont of Nazareth?' "
Mr. Lyle smiled good-naturedly at this
implied doubt as to his friend's perfect
excellence, and as the coachman at this
juncture saw fit to put whip to the horses,
he bowed a graceful adieu to Mr. Clay?
burn and his daughter.
