A REMARKABLE STOnY. In a large, lonely house, situated in the south of England, there onco lived a lady and her two moid servants. Tlioy wero far away from nil human habitations, hut they seemed to liavo felt no fear, but to have dwelt thcro peacefully and happily. 'It was the lady's custom, with her maids, to go ronnd tho honso every evening, to seo it all the windows and doors wero properly secured. Ono night she had accompanied them ns usual, nnd as certained that all was safe. They left her iu the passage close to her room, and then went to their own, which was quito nt tho outside of the house. As the lady opened tho door, she distinctly saw n man under the bed. What could she do? Her servauts were faraway, and could not hear hei if (he screamed for help, and pa en if they hnd como to her assistance, these three weal: women werp no match for n depn rate housebreaker. How, then, did she act 'I She tru-itcd in Ood. (Juietly the closed the door, and locked it en tbi; inside, which she was always in the habit of doing. She then leisurely brushed her hair, nnd putting on her dressing gown, she look her Bible and aat down to rend. She lead aloud, and chose a chapter that liad peculiar reference to God's watchful ness over us. and conslnnt enre of us by night and by day. When it was fini lied, she knelt aud prated at grent lenj'th, Mill uttering her words aloud, especially commending herself and sertants to tiod's protection, nnd dwelling upon their utter helplessness, and dependenre upon Him to prescrto them from nil danger. At last she rose from her knees, put out her candle, and laid down in bed ; but she did not Bleep. After a few minutes had elapsed, she was conscious that the man was standing by her bedside. He begged of her not to be alarmed. " I came here to rob you, but after the words you hate read, nnd thn praters you hnvo uttered, no power on earth could induce me to hurt you, or touch n thing in your house. But you niuil icinnin perfectly quiet, and not attempt to inlerfero with me. I shall now gite a signal to my i ompnnions, which they will understand, and then we will go unay, nnd you may sleep in ponce, for I gitu ton my solemn word no one shall harm ) on, and not the small est thing belonging to tou shall be disturbed." He then went to the window, opened it, and whistled softly. Reluming to tho lady's side, iwho had not spokin or inoveJ,) he said : " Now am going. our prn)er lias been heard, and no disaster will befall you." He left the room, and soon all was quiet, nnd the lady fell asleep, still upheld by that culm aud beautiful faith and trust. lien the morning dawned, and she nwokc, we may feel she poured out her thauksgivings and praises to Uiia who had "defended her " uuder His wing," nnd " kept " her " safe tinder his feathers," so that she was not " afraid of any terror by night." The man wn9 true to his word, and not a thing in the house had been ttl.cn. Oh I shall tve not hope that his heart ttas changed from thnt day forth, and he forsook his course, and cried to tint Saviour "who came to Keek and to sate that which is lost," and evr-ii on the cross did net reject tho penitent thief. Prom this story let us learn to put our whole I nut aud confidence ill God. Tho lady's courage was indeed won derful: hut tho Loid was her defence upon her right hand," aud "with Him nil things nie possible." -London Packet. We have received an extract fiom a letter fully corroborating tho remarkable anecdote of "Tho Lady and the Robber," in our October number, and ndding some fuels thnt enhnnce tbo wonder and mercy of her escape, We quote the words of tho letter . " In the first placo, the lobher told her that, if sho had git en tho slightest alarm or token of resistance, he had fully determined to murder her; so that it was God's good guidance that told her to follow the com to she took. Then, I before he went away, he said, ' I must hate the book you lead out of,' nndcairiedoff her Bible, willingly enough given, you may bo sure. (This happened many tears ago, and only compara tively recently did the lad) henr any morn of him. She was ntlunding a religious meeting in Yorkshire, where, ufier several noted clergy and others had spoken, n man niose, slating that he was employed ns one of the book-hankers of the society, und told tho elory of the mid night adventure, as n testimony of the wondei fuf power of the word of (iod. He concluded, ' I was the man.' The ladt rose from her si.nt in the hall, nnd siad, quietly : ' It is nil quite true, I was that lady,' iilnl 't down again. London Packet. A trial was made at l.joiu, recently, of a now species of locoinotite, in which steam is replaced by ether. The engineer imprudently continued to snioho his cigar, while gelling tho engino ready; it spark front I ho cignr fell into the chamber which contains tho ether, on which the latter became instantaneously a mass of tlamp. Tho engineer was seriously injured, and tho trial was necessarily postponed. NOTICE.

LADI) .$!;, & CO.'S IMPROVED TfoHT-STITCH SEWING MACHINES. A few of the viewy reasons why these Sewing Machine are prejerrea above au otners. 1. They are remarkably simple in their con struction. A child can operate them, and understand the mechanism, 2. They are the strongest Sewing Machine made. It is almost impossible to break or get them out of order. 3. They aro lure in their operation j finishing the work In a uniformly perfect manner. 4. They mal.o a tight lock-stitch, alike on both sides of the work, which cannotUio unravelUd. 6. They stitch, hem, Had, fill, run, and gather, without lasting. , C. They sew equally well the lightest aud tbe heavi'st fabrics. 7. They sew over tho heaviest seams without changing the tension or breaking the finest thread. 8. They use any No. of Cotton, Thread, or Silk, directly from the spool. 9. They use a straight needle; curved ones are liable to break. 10. The needle has a perpendicular motion. This is absolutely necessary for heavy work. 11. They have a heel, ed; none others are in coustant contact with tbe work. 1.'. They run easily and almost noiseless. 1.1. They are not liable to oil the dress of the operator. 14. They do not'require a screw-drlver to set the needle. ID. Tbey do not have to be taken apart to oil or clean. 10. They do not form ridges on tbo under sido of the work, nor ravel out, nor are they waste ful of thread, as Is the case with all chain-stitch machine. 17. They are capable of doing a greater range of work, and In a more perfect manner, than auy other Sewing Machine, us is proved by the result of onr challenge for a trial, wiilrb has never been accepted.
