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.

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 the dark, 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 feet. 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 with jewels. "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 smile. "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 with me."" "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 handsome husband. " 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.

I should like to be convinced of it by actual experience," said Jenny, doubt ingly. "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 gains." " 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 you also?" 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 things." "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 their duty." She spoke absently, and her eyes had a far away glance, as if they had dwelt on other things. Jenny ventured a question. "Margaret, is yours a happy marriage?" Do you love your husband? And does he love you. Mrs. Van Howth started and turned crimson. "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, although 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 with them." 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 I endure! 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. GEO. D. PRENTICE poet and journalist, died on Saturday last at his residence near Louisville.
