A SAFE INVESTMENT.
In the second year of the late civil war, I
was married, and went to live with my
Husband in a small village on the hind son,
some fifty or sixty miles from New York.
The house we occupied was a large, ramb
ling mansion, of considerable antiquity for
wis country, ana stood a little apart from
the rest of the village, surrounded by
broad fields, and commanding a glorious
view of the river and the hills of the High
lands. It had been built before the Revo

"Yoa can place the money in the safe,

away, taking with him our hired man Silas,

filled in our modest household the func

my marriage, had yielded her to me as a
valuable part of my dower.

tall and very stout, weighing she never
would tell how much, more than two hun

lazy as she was black. -1 do not think any

a wonderful dispensation, she seemed to
feel that, whatever her faults might be,ehe
eras strong on the point of locomotion. For
when she had been moving with a ponder
ous slowness, almost maddening to a per
son of ordinary quickness, ' one of her fav
orite expressions was, "Well, Miss Lallie,

about our domestic avrraneementa. and vet
Dinah always managed to bring affairs to a
consummation just when a minute more
would have ruined everything; and with
undisturbed front, would slowly enunciate,
"Well, misses, what shall I fly onto next?"
It was nearly dark when my husband
departed, and, after giving my order to
Dinah, or rath r my suggestions, I left her
and made the tur of the house, to Bee
that all mm Kate ud properly locked up.
Thix lnt Mtumded to, I went to my bed
room, intruding to pass the time in read
ing till my husband should return.
It wast a very large room on the ground
floor, who two French windows opening
on a veranda. ' The windows were draped
witn long, yellow mik curtains, between
which the moonlight faintly entered, dim
med by the s adow of the roof of the
piazza, and partly intercepted by the
fringe of wondrune which hang from it.
' My bed stood with its toot toward the win
dows, and with its head about half a yard
from the walL It was an old-fashioned
structure, hung with yellow silk like the
windows, but I slept with the hangings
drawn back, and fastened to the head-
board. The bed was so large that no one

seasons of household panio called house

four men was called into requisition to
draw it into the middle of the room. So
elaborately carved was it that It went by
the name of Westminster Abbey in the
family. .At one end of the room, at no
great distance from the bed, was a large
safe, built in the huge chimney of the
mansion, with a door high enough for a
person to enter standiug upright. Here I
was accustomed to place, every evening,
our silver plate, on shelves which extend
ed around the sides, on which were also
were placed boxes containing papers and
other valuables. Opposite the foot of the
bedstead, between the windows, was
a mirror, running from the
floor almost to the ceiling. like all
the other furniture in the room, it was old
and handsome. How many happv scenes
it had reflected in the hundred years it had

at which hour Dinah always went to bed.
Her chamber was in the attic the third
story of the house. Remembering some
household matter about which I wished to
speak to her, I started hurriedly up, and
went into the entry to intercept her, before
she got up stairs. I had to wait about a
minute before she came, and our colloquy
continued three or four minutes more.
When I returned to my bedroom, I was
somewhat tired, I resolved to go to bed,
as, at that late hour in the country, it was
quite certain that no visitors would call,
and my husband could let himself in with
the latch-key,- which he always oarried. , I
thought, however, I would try to keep
awake by reading.and accordingly placed a
light stand and the candles at the head of

loving husband and such a large sum of
money in our safe, when suddenly, I saw
in the mirror a sight that made my heart

curtains, drawing them slowly -apart, and
grasping cautiously tne neaa-ooard. it

My first impulse was to start from the
bed, and scream for help. I reprersed it
by a strong effort of will, and lay perfectly
motionless, except that l partially closed,
my eyes, keeping them only sufficiently
open to watch the mirror. As quick as
lightning my mind took in the situation.
In the few minutes of my absence from the
room, while talking to Dinah in the entry,
a thief, a robber, a possible murde er, had
stolen in by the piazza windows, nd had
hid himself either under the bed or be
hind the draped head. He was doubtless
armed; and, if I cried out, and attempted
to escape from the room, he could easily
reach the door, before I could, and for his
own security, would probably put me to
death. Dinah wa3 too distant, and too
feeble and clumsy to afford me any assist
ance, and besides, was fast asleep, in the
third - story, The man doubtless knew
that my husband had that day received a
large sum oi meney, and gone off across
the river, leaving me atone or nearly alone
in the house. He had entered, caring only
for the meney, and anxious, above ail
things, to escape undetected and unrecog
nized, if I let turn know that I was aware
of his presence, I should expose myself to
murder, and to outrage worse than mur
der. My obvious policy was, to keep
quie and feign sleep. I thoughtt also of
the money, and was not altogether willing
to resign tnat without an effort to save it,
aad to have at least some clue to the iden
tity of the thief. I confess, however, that
this last consideration was not a very strong
one, and am afraid, that, if I could have
seen my way clear to an escape from the
room and the house, I ehould have fled in
continently, without stepping to see more
than tnat terrible nana.
A moment, which seemed an hour, pass
ed while these thoughts rushed through
my mind. I lay perfectly still, with my
nau-ciosed eyes watcning tne mirror.
Slowly and noiselessly the frightful hand
pulled up its owner, until I could see the
head and face reflected in the glass, and
glaring at me with fierce yet wary eyes.
The man was a mulatto, very dark, with
evil Dassions written in everv Lineament. 1

intended to move my light stand a little
out of tne way, and to so arrange the bed
clothes that I could spring from the bed
without impediments. I therefore gava a
little sigh, and moved, as if about to awake
slightly opening my eyes at the same time.
The head and the hand instantly disap
peared.' I then composedly made the de-
bired changes in the position of the stand
and the arrangement of the clothes, put
my watch with the key of the safe under
my pillow so near the edge that they
could easily be taken out, as I knew he
would take them extinguished one of mv
candles, Baid my prayers, and, closing my
eyes, resigned myself to my fate, with no
very sanguine or definite hope of extrica
tion from my perilous position.
I made my breathing regular, and a little
louder than when I was awake, and lay
with my cheek on my hand, counterfeit
ing sleep. At last tne soilness became
more terrible than even my first agony of
fear. Several time I fancied that I heard
soft step approach from the place of con
cealment. As often I was deceived. Then
again that dreadful stillness in which I
counted the ticking of the watch through
the pillow I It was a positive relief whan

bent over me. He passed the lighted can
dle slowly before my face two or three
times. I felt the heat, and saw the light
through my closed lids, which must have
quivered, though he did not observe their
motion, Heaven gave me strength not to
move or cry out. Satisfied, apparently, he
put back the candlestick on the stand, and
bis nand crept softly and slowly under the
pillow, and, one by one, he removed my
watch, and the key of the safe. He stood
long looking at me that I felt impelled

did partly open them, and cautiously
watched him through my eyelashes. I
heard him fumbling with the lock, and
once he looked over toward the bed. My
eyes were wide open, but I closed them in
time not to be detected. Watching him
stealthily, I saw him open the door of the
safe, go to the stand for the candle, and
return to the safe, which he entered with
out withdrawing the key from the lock.
Here was the opportunity for which I
had waited and watched. I sprang light
from the bed with one bound, reached
the safe, dashed the door to, turned the
key, and with one loud shriek fell prostrate
and senseless on the floor of the dark room.
How long I lay upon the floor. I do not
know probably for a few minutes only
but, as I was unconscious, it seemed, when
came to myself, as if the interval had
been long. I was aroused by his blows
upon the iron door, and found myself weak
after the long nervous tension, but still
calm. I remember the satisfaction with
which I thought while I lay there, before
rising, that he could not escape, mingled
with a ' vague and fooliah dread that he
might in his rage burn the valuable con
tents of the safe. He pounded desperately
the door, and swore fearfully at finding
nimseir entrapped. Hut as I took no no
tice of his outcries, he soon grew quiet.

We had scarcely got down-stairs when I
heard the sound of wheels. A moment

Please let me say one word for the young
and tender fruit trees. The season of trans
planting has passed, and many a man has
paid out his perhaps hard earned money
for trees, which he is in hopes in the future
will either gratify his own palate or mem
bers of his family, or perchanoe repay with
interest the money and labor he has ex
pended on them. A goodly share of the
above described persons will be disappoint
ed in their expectations. As the writer cf

rain mature the crop. Why trouble your
self to cultivate and care for the growing

teaches them that there is more in
cultivating and caring for the crop than
putting it in. Well, just so it is with
the young fruit trees. Have vou set an
orchard of young trees either last fall or

work is but half done. Don t wait another
week, if you have not done it, but see to it
that they are mulohed immediately. By
mulching I mean the placing from two to
four bushels of coarse manure around each

Th London correspondent of the New

and costumes I have hardly anything new
note this week, except that 1 hear on all
sidas that Mrs. Motley, wife of the Ameri
can embassador in England, is considered
one of the very best-dressed ladies of the
season. They say even English women
say, and that is a good deal that her taste
surpasses in chasteness anything that has
been seen in London for many years, and
that her diamonds are simply perfection in
their setting. I heard a dispute as to
whether Mrs. Motley or the Countess of
Sefton was the best-dressed woman at the
last drawing room, but the general opinion
was decidedly in favor of the former."

On Friday afternoon, a gentleman, aged
about thirty-five, called at the Central Po

days. He had lately heard of him in
Brooklyn, and afterwards as being upon a

stranger recognised the boy as the one he
was in search of, and the dot also recog

were brother, and that Dr. King, of Eliza-

tempted outrage upon a little girl, was their
stapiatner, and the girl their sister. That
he, the stranger, had been strongly opposed
to the Doctor marrying the mother, and
had left home in consequence: and his
brother, the little boy. had been driven
from home . by his stepfather's brutality.

to learn of the boy's whereabouts, but sup.

the doctor's attempted outrage on his sister
he procured a revolver aad went to Elisa

him on sight, but reaching the house only
an hour after the villain had been taken in
to custody. He said that the doctor had
succeeded in spending about $19,000 be

family, in the course of the few months
since his marriage.

The Sault Sainte Marie. Origin and History of the all-Healing
Balm Known as Merchant's Gargling.
It is as true of an article of commerce as
of individuals and institutions, that when
it attains to eminence and extensive useful
ness, its history becomes of universal in
terest The man who rendered the ines
timable and lasting service to mankind of
discovering, preparing, and successfully
bringing into use the elixer so widely
known as "Msbchant's Gasouno Oil,"
was Gso. W. Mzbchant, a profound
chemist of singularly acute, discriminating
power, in naoits or untiring application,
researon and tenacity or purpose, he was
not an unworthy representative of the
famed Alchemysts, who, in the infancy of
scienoe, devoted their days and nights in
search of the Philosophers Stone:
but unlike them the researches of Geo. W.
Merohant were guided by well ascertained
facts and carefully conducted experiments.
Having conceived the idea of a healing balm
of universal application, he never ceased
his efforts or abated his labors until this
laudable object was accomplished. The
result of the great discovery was first pre
sented to the world by Dr. Merohant in
1833, and he soon found it neoessary to
make extensive provisions for its manufac
ture to supply the rapidly increasing de
mand. After a few years he was adnion-

Anecdotes of Dickens.
Monaduock, the London correspondent
the New York Times, baa this paragraph
regard to Dickens in his last letter:
mi. Dickens believed in coincidences. It
was his ready way of accounting tor many
things that seem to others supernatural. or
providential If you told him ever so ex
traordinary a story of what are called
spiritual manifestations, he would say,
Kin, a mere coincidence. I have had a
great many such," and would proceed to
tell something really very remarkable in
his own experience which Buch a word as
coincidences would not very satisfactorily
account for. But he had an awe of the
spiritual world which made him reject the
idea of familiar, and what seemed
him, irreverent and vulgar intercourse
between the two worlds. Mr. Edmund
Yates, for many years a fervent admirer of
Mr. Dickens, contributes largely to the
stock of anecdotes concerning him. He
was, Mr. Yates says, a conscientious and
indefatigable worker, reading articles,
proofs, cutting out and making additions,
thoroughly editing, in fact, whatever pass
ed through his hands and appeared under
his imprimatur. It was said that his con
tributors imitated his peculiarities but it
was oftener his own interpolations that
gave the semblance of his style. He
worked hard, Mr. Yates says, on his
own writings, with constant emenda
tions and interlineations, but I
learned, from Mr. Dickens himself,
that he so ordered his work as always to
plenty of time and freedom for rec
reation. For some months past, Mr. Dick
ens has lived in London, and has gone
more in society than formerly. Town air,
London dinner parties, and late hours may
not have been good for him. When he was
Naples, he said to a gentleman, who un
dertook to be his cicerone: "T do not care
much for the fashionable world, but if you
can take me among the people, the lazzar
oni, I shall be delighted.
Never was there a more thorough Eng
lishman than Mr. Dickens, but never has
there been one who has portrayed the most
sorrowful features of English life with a
more unsparing hand.

bunch of wheat and cheat grown together.

eight head of wheat and four or five of
chess or cheat This wheat and cheat
could only be separated by splitting the
roots apart, which were as firmly united
(the cheat with the wheat) as ever any
