Indeed, I havo often thought it was more difficult to direct others, and re quires more experienco, than to do tho samo work with our own lianas.

I'nKFKtlEXCU OF ExTIXCT TO EXTANT liulwer savs, in his last number of Blackwood : " I honor tho reverence to noble tombs too implicitly to believe that any living great man can oqual a dead groat man. A dead great man is a shrined ideal of existenco : ft liv ing great man is a struggling fellow mortal." Bobbing a Methodist Treacher. ' Soon after tho promulgation of jiethouism in Lnglami, it spread with groat rapidity over tho counties of Devon and Cornwall, and especially among the miners and low orders. lor a long timo after its introduction, tho clergy and liigh orders of society in tho wost of England manifested a uegrco. ol dishko to tho- doctrines. which can hardly be imagined in theso days of modorn toleration; It was thought by many young men good eport to break the windows and nail up tho doors of u Methodist chapol. Tho robbery of a Wcsloyan preacher as a spree, by three young men, how ever, had the result of making them pnyjvery dearly for their practical joke. Among the uuinstructed local preachers was ono known by the namo of tho "Old aardenor." This old man was so common character, iudeod ho was puito an original, and by far tho most popular proachor among tho low est and least intelligent of tho disci ples 'of John Woslay. Ho kept a small nursery garden, about two miles from tho town of St. A , working hard at his occupation by day, and praying and proaching to his fellow sinners, as ho formed them, in the evoniug. lie lived in the poorest manner, giving away all the surplus of his earnings in charity, distributing bibles, and promoting to tho utmost of his ability tho oxlonsion of Method ism. His complexion was a sort of dirty, dark iron-gray, and his whol appoaranco loan und grotesque. Al though extremely ignorant, ho pos sessed no 6tnall degree of cunning and porsonal courage Of this, tho follow ing incident affords amplo evidence. lho old gardener was once subject- od to burglary anil ffmpt rob ber. Ho lived with his wife, in a small and somewhat dilapidated cot tag not far from the high road. Three young "squires" who had just finished their studies at the Univer sity, and who all despised and hated Methodism, having heard that tho old man had recently been making a col lection to build a Methodist Chapel, thought it woula be a good Iroho to rob him temporarily of tho proceeds of tho collection. Tho result of tho frolic is best related by one of tho actors. "We set out," said lie, "upon an ex pedition with blackened faces, unon a dark night, a littlo beforo twelvo o'clock. W had Dutch ns well as Cornish courage; yet I confess, when it camo to the point, I felt myself a coward. I began to reflect that it was but a dastardly frolio to frighten n poor old man and his wifo in tho dead of night. M comes tho w itching hour o' night,' ex claimed Tom. Don't lotus frighten tho couple out of their w its,' said I. No,' said l'rder 'wo will bo gontlo robbers gentle as Kobin Hood and Little John.' I said that I had rather travel back than procoed. "liocollect,' said I, 'the old follow is an old soldier ns we ll as a saint, and fears nothing human.' J 'Nonsense!' exclaimed liyder; 'hero coos.' He pressed the feeble door of tho cottago in which tho old man ro- j sidod; it immediately flew open. Wo ontorcd and found ourselves in n sort of kitchen. To our surprise, there ' was a light shining in tho inner room. This made us hesitate. . Who is at thcro at this timo of , . ... i r nightr exciaimea a uoarse voico ironi within. 1 know it to bo tho unmis- takablo voico of tho old gardener. Givo us your money and no harm shall ' bofall you,' said Tom, .'but we must havo your money.'1 Tho Lord will bo my dofonco ro- ioined tho old gardener. Vou shall havo no money from mo;' all .in tho house is tho Lord's; take it if you dare 1' Wo must aud will, havo it, said we, as wo cntorou tno inner room; after taking tho precaution of fasten ing tho chamber door as wo ontered. Wo soon wished we had suhorod it to roinain open, as you will soo. Xior consider us face to face with tho old gardener, and a pretty sight we presented. Three rutfians (our selves) with white wagoner's fiocks and blackenod faces. Beforo us tho old gardener, sitting on tho sido of his bed. Ho then wore a rod worsted night cap, a checked shirt, and a llan nol jacket; his iron gray face, fringed with a grizzly beard, looking as tool and uitHismaycd as if ho hut I been in tho pulpit preaching. A tablo was by tho sido of tho bed,- and immediately in front of him was an open Bible, closo by which wo observed to our horror, a heap of gunpowder, largo enough to blow up a castlo. ' A candle was burning on tho table, and tho old man had a steel in ono hand, aud a larse flint in tho other. ' Wo wcro all three completely paralyzed. The wild. iron-faced, determined look of tho old trardoner, tho candle, the flint and steel, and tho great heat) of powder, absolutely froze our blood and made cow ards of us all. Tho gardener saw the improssion lie had mado. What! do you want to rob and murder?' exclaimed he. .'You had better join with mo in prayer, tuisera bio sinners that you all aro. l'epent and you may bo saved. You will soon bo in another world 1' lfyder first rocoverod his sporch. M'leaso to hear me, Mri Gardener; I fuel thf.t wo havo lx-en wrong,' mid if wo may depart, wo will make ro paration, and givo you all tho money IU um innacva, We laid our purses on tho tablo be foro'him. 'The liOrd has delivered you into my hands. It was so ruvenlod to tue in a dream. We shall soou be in another world. 1'iay let us pray.' And down ho fell on his knee, eloso to tho table,-with tho caudlo burning, and tho ugly flint and steel in his hand. Jlo prayed and prnyod 1 thought his prayer would never end. At last bo a pi tea red exhausted. Ho stopped ntid eyed -the purges, and then emptied thorn out on tho tablo. Ho appeared surprisod,' and I thought gratified, at tho largenoss of their contents. J'y der, who was close behind Tom and mysolf, whispered softly, 'I havo unfastened the door ; when you hear me move make a rush.' Tho old gardoner, then, pouring out tho contents of tho second purso, ex ciaimea: Why, there is almost enough to build our now house of Ood! let me see what tho third contains.' He took up tho third nurso. 'Now,' whispered llvder. mako a rush.' We did so, and at tho same moment heard tho old fellow hammorin? awav wuu nis uiut ana steel. Tho front door, however, flow opon before us. iL 1 if . . . . O " the nftxt w-a v.ir .. the garden. The night was pitchy dark. We rushod blindly through the nursery ground, scrambled through brambles and prickly shrubs, ran our heads against trees, and then forced ourselvos through a thick hedgo. At last, with scratched faces, torn hands, and tattered clothes, wo tumbled over a bank into tho high road. This was tho work bf but a fow minutes. If our laces could havo been seen, it would have been thought from our horror stricken countenances, that in stead of haying risen from prayer,.we had been pursuod by Old Nick him self. Our horses wero soon found, and we galiopod to Kydor's residence. Lights wero procured, and we sat ilown. We wero black, raggod and dirty. Wo looked at each othor, and in spite of our nuserablo adventure, roared with laughter. . We may lauh!' exclaimed Tom. 'W if thta adventure is blown, and wo aro found out, Cornwall will bo too hot to hold us for tho next soven years. T 1 1 vu uttvw uiuuo u preiry nignt oi it. Wo havo lost our money; boon oblitrcd to pretend to pray for two hours be- loro a heap of gunpowdor, while that iron-faced, ugly, rod-capped brute, threatened us all with an immediato passago into eternity. And our money must go to build a Methodist meeting houso! Bah! It is truly horrible. Tho fellow has played tho old soldier on us with a vengeance, and wo shall be tho Laughing stock of tho whole country.' The nll'air was not ended. Keports wero that threo men, disguised as black demons, with horns and tails, had entered tho cottage of tho old gardoner, who had not only terrified them, but had frightened them out of a good sum of money, which ho in tended to devoto to tho building of a now Methodist meetinghouse. It was roach a sermon, and afterwards so licit subscriptions for tho new meeting house, when ho would rclato tho re markable manner in which ho was so providentially assisted with funds for tho building. Our mortification was completo. Tom, whoso hatred of Methodism was intenso, doclared ho would blow up the meeting house as soon as it was built. Our curiosity, howovcr, was excited, and wo all de termined to hear our adventure of tho night related by tho old gardener, if wo could contrive to uo presont with out being suspected. bunday oveuing arrived, lho meet ing houso was crowded to suffocation, and with tho dim lights then burning in tho chapel, wo had no difficulty in concealing oursolves. The sermon w as short, but the statement of our adven turo was related most minutely and circumstantially in the old man's qunint homely and humorous jdirase ology. This evening lie sodmed to ex cel himself, and was exultingly humor ous. Tho old fellow's face glowod with delight and satisfaction. '1 never, said lie, 'never saw black faces pray with creator devotion.' 'I havo soma doubt, howovcr, ho slily observed, 'if thoir prayers were quito heavenward. They sometimes turnod their faces toward tho door, but tho lifting of tho flint and steel kept thorn quiet. Ho then added, with a knowing shako of tho head and oxultmg laugh: 'but they had not smelt powder like tho old soldior whom they came to rob. No, no; it was a largo heap- ay, large enough to frighten old ueu eral Clivo himself. Tho candle was btrlitod, the flint and steel w ero ready. You may B6k, my friends, if I myself was not afraid. No, no; my dear friends,' shoutod ho: 'This large heap of gunowder was it w as my stock, my whole yoar'd Btock, of look seed.' Tho wholo congregation somewhat irreverently laughed; even tho saint almost shoutod; many clapped thoir hands.

He is opposed to tno habit ot koeping wiuesin bond. It is, ho says, ruinous to every cask of pure, natural wine, Irom any and every country. He exposes several of tho more rocont shams of English aud continental wino-dealers. Of an arti cle called "Elbo Sherry," ho says: "Grapes do not Ihrivo much on tho iJUtawcsuiUtV 111 fU'Il UDUU- daneo in that favored locality, and yield a Cno native spirit; wliilo tho Elbe furuishos an nmplj supply of what, in tochnicnl phrase, is called 'liquor.

He gives an oxaniplo of on operation of mixing which was lately performed in a boud od vault in London, when C,550 gal lons of French red wino wero com bined with 11,100 gallons of proof spirit and 00 gallons ot ' capdlairo.

Champngno-although mado chiefly of black grapec -being entirely freo from tho juice, is almost colorless, and con sequent ly, thoso kinds called amber, rose and pink havo been colored. How this is done. Mr. Shaw oxplains: "For tho first, a very slight quantity of a preparation callod jisnies, from tho namo of tho placo whero it is made, is used. This is composed of the elderberry, boiled with cream of tartar and filtered To produce roso or pink, more is required; but no ono cau carefully compare even tho amber with that which is pure, without dis covering a coarse, extraneous flavor; and in tho deeper colors this is still moro perceptible. Sometimes any 6hade of color is given by. adding moro or loss musk from rod grape, of which tho ' husks havo been pressed and their color allowed to mix with tl'Aiit'ift?n (mcNvnoio is4 loruicnt cd together. Ho sa3-3 that champagno 6houldnot only .bo cool but cold, and if not kept in a temperature sufficiently low it must bo iced. In a hot room, even in winter,tho coolness is pleasant; but if tho bottle is allowed to remain in tho ico pail until tho wino becomes nearly as cold as tho ico itself, it is wasting lino champagne to give it in that stato, for flavor and taste bocomo what tho merchants call 'locked up." Ten minutes' iceing does not deterior ate tho wine; but oven then it is not equal to that which is brought out of a cold cellar, w hero it has lain long undisturbed. The practice of putting pieces of ico into tho wino itself is destructive to tho quality. Mr. Shaw notices tho establishment of the Veuvo CTujuot, saying: "A few miles on the l'aris sido of Eperuay, may. bo seen ft chateau, abovo tho doorway of which is curved, Mater Filiie,' tho mater boing a. lady of world-wide fame, exceedingly rich, but still living in a small house at IloiiuH, as sho did many years ago; and although abovo SO years old, it is said thcro is not u curee mado without her opinion, nor a transaction of im portance without consulting her. Others may have, and do have, quito as good - wino as hers; for they havo the samo chances which fcho enjoys, of buying grappsor wines from growers; while tho preparation of her liquors is no mystery, and the fermentation must everywhere go on in its natural course. The desire of her houso i, not to make its wine bettor ono year than another, but to keep it as closo as possible to its knowu standard pe culiarity, year after year. If nil sea- sous wero alike, this wxmld bo com paratively easy, but some are so bad that not ft stingle grape wi'l bo admit ted iuto cellars of repute; and us two, three, and more such years often suc ceed each othor, her and every cither houso aro compelled to keep up stock in tho be&t way they can. Tho only plan of accomplishing this, is by searching throughout the district for the bost wino that can be found in the cellars of tho growers or merchants, aiid preparing them for their brand. Largo firms, such as hers, nnd a fow moro, will mako several cuvecs of 60, 000 and 100,000 dozens after a good vintngo." , tout wine. Concevnln'r tort, Mr. Shaw has much to Ray, though that wino is got ting "vulgar in Jjondou. Jlo says tho most perfect vintage he recollects was tho lh-w. "lho wine was evi dently from well, hot over-ripened grapes, and there was in it a lino, firm lul new', with eutficieiit Tidiness, but no hard stalkiness or dryness; so that it was certain to go forward improv ing. . This kind has al the great ad vantage that it does not r quire ub surdly long keeping in bottle. 'It is a well-known fact that almost every third cork containing very old wino is decayed and has a bad smell, which it, of course, imparts to tho wino. I do not s'y that port ever has a dolieato bouquet; for only a drop of brandy let fall into the finoft glass of any wino will immediately deaden its flavor, and port have often H" gal lons of proof ;t added. to tho pipe; but oven port, with all its strength, when it has been 111, l.r, or 20 or more years in bottle, has generally what is known among wine-iucn-rh;ii;t5 ft? tho 'bottle-stink;' and, if with this samo 'bottle-Btink,' it is declared to bo, ami buyers believe it to bo, a 'real vintagw lrl!Or' 10 guineas per dozen will be a small price for it. A few years ago anything black enough, and with a touch of the elegant 'bottle-stink,' was immediately salable at high prices, and much ransacking at public sale as well as in publio houses there' was to find such profitable merchandise." School Boy Promise -A Sketch by a man of Fifty. Theodore 8. Fay, in narratincr his early adventures in the capacity of a pedagogue, gives tho following as his experience of youthful indications of future greatness: llurty years ago I was penniless) iHUceesslulJy in two or three forlorn speculations, in tho course of which I wandered about tho Stato with a reck less independence, sometimos mourn ing over tho past, and sometimes an ticipating tho black and gloomy fu ture. At length my funds and every invention to increaso them wero ex hausted, and shunniug all society,'! spont a week in devising plans by which I was to bo rescued from my embarrassments. I wroto to a friend who was tho proprietor of an acade my of Bomo renown, and oflbred my services as an assistant. They were kindly accepted. His answer enclosed advanco money to- a considerable amount ; and in a few days, as it were by the imago of somo changing: dream, I found 'ray self away from tho wido, green hills and shadowy wood of tho country, pent up in a small room with a class of boys whom I was to initiate in tho mysteries if ur ography and astronomy. lho lust lad was a dull, sinrrular- looking being, of tho most unpromis ing oxterior. Judging from appear- ances, tho probability of teaching "his young idea how to shoot," 6eemed"a matter of considerable doubt. I strove several times for a glimpso of intelli gence in his mind in vain. It was like the labor of the Brazilian slaves, digging in the sand for diamonds. " W here is Asia? asked I. Ho reddened, put out his under lip, cast down his eyes, and at longth found words to say, "On the map, sir.' "Point to its real situation." lie stuck out his clumsy hand liko tho foro-paw of a dancing bear, and Jointed in a direction about twenty egroes abovo tho horizon. " hat causos tho day?" Tho sun sir." . 1 "What causes the night?" ' "The moon, sir." I was quito satisfied as to UiA..vt "The next was a clear-complexioned. noble looking fellow,jwith largo, dark eyes and glossy hair, curled about his high temples; his full lip was red like a girl's, and his voice 6weet as music. Ho had a correct knowledge of what ho had gone over, and a facility in learning whatever was placed beforo him. The few simple interrogations which I put to him wcro easily replied to, till at length ho missed several in succession. Then camo a shadow over his morning face, and tho tears stole up softly in his eyes, and hung upon their long lashes trembling. 1 could not but wonder to myself if ho had a sister or a cousin who resembled him; but what was that to me? So I went on. Tho next had nothing to distinguish himself from boys in general, nis countenance was ono of thoso common faces which wo never notice. He had pins stuck in tho sleovo of his coat, and twino hanging out of tho corners of his pocket; his stockings hanging and slipped down over his shoos, and tho strings trailed over tho floor. He fidgettod with his button-hole, and put his foot in his lap, and at length, got ono of his companions laughing at something he had in his hand. I called him to mo, and he thrust it into his pocket, which stuck out from his body as if it contained tho wholo amount of his personal estate." I de sirod him to empty it upon tho desk, and forth camo a medley of school boy treasures; isinglass, slato pencils, a ball, chewed India rubber, paper boats, a top, and among tho rest, a fly-box, containing a most unfortunate prisoner, who, without judge oriury, ha l been summarily condemned, his wings stripped from his buck, and hang ed by u hair ropo on an appropriate pino-wood gallows, which my friend had manufactured for tho Occasion. Tho other was an awkward, lub berly, overgrown croaturo, with a pair of green oyes that looked like a cut's. ; His hair stuck up straight on every side liko a coat brush; ho had a huge nose that occupied a third of his faco, aud ho spoke with ft cracked voice, that bad as littlo melody iu it as tho filing of ft saw. Ho sat upon tho bench with ns littlo nninialion, as if ho had been made of putty; nnd al though ho did not nnswor any ques tion, yet ho exhibited 'no other sign of grief than might havo been detected in a yawn that opened a iuouth of most appalling uixaenslons.
