Orsurtewes: In the year 1856, I unfortunately
was in business in the Artisan lauildlng, which
was destroyed by fire on the 10th of April. I
bad then in use what I supposed was a Fire
proof Safe, but upon opening it I found every
thing was destroyed, and lire burning therein.
You will recollect gentlemen, there were
several of your Safes in that fire , also several in
the lire at Sixth and Commerce streets, the next
May, five weeks afterwards, all or which upon
being opened proved they were lire-proof
deed, for I witnessed the opening of the most
of them, and in every case the contents were
preserved, while Safes of other makers wero
partially or entirely destroyed. lat once con
cluded to have something that I could depend
upon, and purchased one of your Safes.
The Safe I purchased of you at that time was
subjected to a white heat (Which was witnessed
by several gentlemen that reside in the neigh
borhood) at the destruction of my Marble Paper
Factory, 921 Wallace street, on the afternoon
and evening of the 24th inst. After digging the
Safe from the ruins, and opening it this morn
ing, I was much pleased to Mid everything, con
sisting of books, papers, money and silverware
all right. I shall want another of your Sates as
soon as I can get a place tcreantintie my busi
ness in. I could not rest contented with any
other make of Safes.

Linder the lamp lights, dead in the street,
Delicate, fair, and only twenty ;
There she lies,
Face to the skies,
Starved to death in a city of plenty,
Spurned by all that is pule and sweet,
Passed by busy and careless feet—
Hundreds bent upon folly and pleasure,
Hundreds with plenty, time and leisure—
To teach the erring and raise the lowly—
Plenty in charity's name to show
That life has something divine and holy.
Boasted charms—classical brow,
Delicate features—look at them now !
Look at her lips—once they could smile ;
Eyes—that never more shall beguile :
Never more, never more words of hers
A blush shall bring to the saintliest face.
She has found, let us hope and trust,
Peace in a higher and better place,
And yet, despite of all, still, I ween,
Joy of some heart she must have been.
Some fond mother, proud of the task,
Has stooped to finger the dainty curl ;
Some proud father has bowed to ask
A blessing for her, his darling girl.
Hard to think, as we look at her there,
Of all the tenderness, love and care,
Lonely watching and sore heart-ache,
All the agony, burning tears,
Joys, and sorrows, and hopes and fears.
Breathed and suffered for her sweet sake.
Fancy will picture a home afar,
Out where the daisies and buttercups are,
Out where life-giving breezes blow,
Far from these sodden streets, foul and low ;
Fancy will picture a lonely hearth,
And an aged couple dead to mirth
Kneeling beside a bed to pray ;
Or lying awake o'nights to hark
For a thing that may come in the rain and
A hollow-eyed woman, with weary feet.
Better they never know
She whom they cherished so
Lies this night lone and low,
Dead in the street.
ONLY A FARMER'S WIFE.
Two women sat together at sunset, in
the porch door of a white cottage that
stood under the " old ancestral trees,"
and " among its fields of wheat and corn,"
like a poet's vision of a quiet resting place
for some weary, suffering human soul.
And one of these two women had eyes
to see, ears to hear, and a heart to feel and
appreciate it all. She was a tall, stately
lady, apparently some thirty years of age
—not exactly handsome, but with a grace
of air and manner peculiarly her own.
The careful toilet, the nameless air of ele
gance and luxury, the pale cheek and soft
white hands, betrayed the city dame.
While the weary glance in the large dark
eyes, which even the pleasant quiet of the
sunset hour could not quite drive away,
showed that Time had not dealt gently
with her and her heart's idols, but had
thrown them, shattered and ruined, at her
Her companion was some five years her
junior, and many times prettier—a little
round faced, apple cheeked woman, with
dark blue eyes and dark brown hair, and
a rounded figure that was set off to the
best advantage by the afternoon dress of
tinted muslin that she wore.
At present the pretty face was almost
spoiling by a querulous, discontented ex
pression. She was contrasting her own
hand, plump and small, but certainly
rather brown, with the slender, white
fingers of her city friend, all glittering
"Just look at the two," she exclaimed.
" That comes of making butter and
cheese, and sweeping and dusting and
washing dishes, and making beds all the
time ! The man told the truth who said
that a woman's work is never done. I
know mine never is. Oh, dear, dear ! to
think that you, Margaret, should have
married a city merchant and be as rich as
a princess in a fairy tale ; and here I am
planted for life, plain Mrs. Hiram Parke,
and nothing to compare with you. lam
sick of being only a farmer's wife."
Margaret Van Howth looked down at
her grumbling little friend with a sad
"Jenny, it seems to me, as we sit here
in this quiet place, and look out over all
these pleasant fields that are your own—
it seems to me that you are almost wicked
to talk so."
"I dare say," replied Mrs. Jenny ;
" but you would not like it, Margaret.
You would never wish to change places
"Perhaps not. Would you like to
change with me ?"
" l es.""
" And be Mrs. Van Howtb, instead of
Mrs. Hiram Parke ?"
Jenny hesitated. She dearly loved her
" Well I don't mean that I want to
give up Hiram," she said at last. " I
only mean that 'I wish ho was a city mer
chant, instead of a farmer, and as rich as
your husband is, that is all."
" And that is a great deal," said Mrs.
Van Howth coldly. "Jenny, if your wish
could bo granted, do you know what your
life would be
" What yours is, I suppose. What any
lady's is in your position."
" Exactly. But what is that life ? Do
You know ?"
" now should I ?"
" It is a weary one, Jenny, with more
genuine work in it than all your making
putter and cheese can bring."
" Oh, Margaret !"
" And oh, Jenny! Believe me, my
dear, there are no people on earth, who
work harder than the fashionables who
only have their own amusements to pro
care for him who shall have borne the battle, and
for his widon , and his orphan, to do all which may
achieve and cherish a just and a lasting peace
among ourselves and with all nations."--4. L.

vide for.' A life of mere amusement is a
dog's life, Jenny, at best."
I should like to be convinced of it by
actual experience," said Jenny, doubt
"So I said and thought once. I have
been so convinced. And it is all vanity
and vexation of spirit."
" But how ?" persisted Jenny.
"How?" In ten thousand ways. If
you live in the fashionable world, you
must do as the fashionable world does.
You must rise and dresS, shop and lunch,
and dress again, and drive and dress
again and appear at certain balls, parties
or concerts exactly as your friends do, or
be voted a bizarre, and out of the world
altogether. You my poor Jenny, who
are by no means fond of dress; what would
you do at a fashionable watering place in
the hottest days of August, with five
changes of toilet between morning and
night, and a French lady's maid to tyran
nize over you all the time, into the bar
" Horrors!" ejaculated Jennie.
" Balls that you must go to in spite of
fatigue, parties that you must grace in
spite of heat, calls that you must make on
people whom you detest! Oh, ~envy, I
should far rather be at home with the
butter and cheese, if I were you!"
.Tenny was silent. Here was a side of
the bright picture which sl.e had never
seen or dreamed of before.
" You love your husband, Jenny?"
said her friend after a time.
Jenny opened her eyes widely.
"Love him! Why, isn't he my hus
band?" was her naive reply.
Mrs. Van Ilowth laughed.
" Some women in society' might think
that a reason why you should not love
him!" she said dryly. nd he loves
I should die to-morrow, if I thought
he did not!"
" Tut child! People leave this world
when God wills it, not before. I dare say
you would survive his infidelity. Many
women before you have lived through such
"Don't talk of it Margaret! I could not
bear it! Why, his love is all the world to
me! How could I bear to lose it?"
"Then don't wish him to be a city mer
chant, my dear. I dare say there are a
great many good men in the city.--men
who love their wives; but, on the other
hand, there are so many temptations, espe
cially in society,' that I sometimes won
der, not that so many g o astray, but that
so many remain true to themselves and
She spoke absently, and her eyes had a
far away glance, as if they had dwelt on
Jenny ventured a question.
"Margaret, is yours a happy marriage?"
Do you love your husband? And does he
Mrs. Van Howth started and turned
"Jenny, I would have loved him—l
would have been a good wife to him; but
he never loved me. lie bought me to
place me at the head of his house because he
thought me lady-like and interesting; that
was all, lie told me so once,
not quite so plainly as this. And since
then we have each taken our own way, in
dependent of the other. I seldom see him
at our house in town. I have my car
riage, my diamonds, and my opera box.
In the summer season I go to Saratoga or
Newport, while he favors Long Branch
with his presence. Ye are perfectly po
lite to each other; we never quarrel; and
I suppose if I were to die to-morrow, lie
would be the most inconsolable of widow
ers—for a week! Jenny, you will not wish
to change places with me again. Your
husband might change as mine has, ex
posed to the same temptations. Thank
Heaven that you have him as he 4, a
good, true man, who loves you; and never
mind the butter and cheese Jenny, so long
as your own happiness and his is made up
She rose from her seat as she spoke and
strolled down the garden path alone.
Jenny did not follow her. She sat on
the step, lost in thought. The riddle of
her friend's life was at last made clear to
her. She had often wondered why Marga
ret, in the midst of all her wealth and
luxury, should seem so sad and ill at ease.
She wondered no longer now.
To be the wife of a man who has no love
for you! What 'lower deep' can there be
for a proud and sensitive woman?
Jenny turned with tears in her eyes to
meet her handsome, stalwart husband,
as he came from the field.
"Well, little woman!" he cried, and
then she got the rough embrace and the
hearty kiss for which she was looking.
Yes,_ Margaret was right! The butter
and cheese were ofvery little consequence,
I while love like this made her task easy to
And the rosy-checked little woman bent
fondly down over her " Hiram," as he
thing himself on the porch seat, and
fanned him, talked to him, brought him
cool lemonade, and made him thoroughly
happy, at rest.
Poor Margaret! Happy Jenny! Never•
again would she wish to be anything more
than only a farmer's wife.
