she drove thither, and when she reached the a
place dispatched her driver for a physician. t
She entered the humble house, and by her
kindly attentions endeavored to atone as
much as possible for the pain of which she
had innocently been the cause.
It proved to be the child of our acquain
tance, Mrs. Brown; and the poor mother
showered down thanks upon Florence, who
remained long after the physician had per
formed his painful office; and who after pay
ng him had bestowed upon Mrs. Brown a
large sum of money.
"You are of the right stamp, gentle lady,' t
cried the grateful woman. "There aint many
would have done as you, may heaven bless
you for it. I know of but one that has such
a good heart to feel for the poor, and that is
Miss Cora Harvy, God love her sweet face !"
"You know Miss Harvy, then?" Florence
"Indeed, I do, honey-aint she the blessed t
one that keeps me from starvation, and don't
she nurse me when I am sick, the same as if I
was a born equal ?" Then she continued
with the garrulity of old age. "Aye, and
don't it grieve my heart to see her wasting
away like a poor hail-beaten flower, and she
so good and beautiful ?"
"Is she so unhappy then ?"
"Why for' bless you honey, I thought eve
rybody knowed it ; but you may be a stranger
here. You see it's town-talk, or I wouldn't
mention it for the world. Don't everybody I
know she was engaged to her cousin Eustace
Walcot and they was to be married as soon
as he came from furrin parts? But you see
like all other men, child, he has proved false;
the whole town is talking how he has fell in
love with some actress or nother, and is about
to marry her; and all his family is up in arms
against it because as how he ought to marry
a real born lady, and not a show-woman, and
a furriner too. Miss Cora is pining away
till she's worn to a shader, and yet she don't
say a word to him. Ah! it seems to me lady,
that the good suffers most in this world, though
it may be wicked in me to say so."
Florence left the house-sick as death she
was driven through the streets to her Hotel.
It was not the same world which her eyes
rested upon an hour before-all was changed
because of the pang within, which could never
nevermore leave her heart!
Oh! Gossip! demon that constantly de
stroys the happiness of mortals, for how much
wilt thou have to answer.
When Eustace Walcot called to receive his 1
final answer from Florence, a letter was
Stung to madness he read:
"The Opera season is over, and the Opera
singer is gone from your sight forever! When t
this reaches you I shall be miles away. Forget
my existence, for our paths sever to meet no
more. It was by accident I learned the an
guish of which I have been the unconscious
cause. I have erred ignorantly; and you-, t
oh! Eustace, can you have sinned wilfully'?
'They tell me that your betrothed is good as
she is lovely. I would not come between i
her and her happiness; nor would I cause t
you to break a vow you might live to regret.
I know that you love me, and yet let me hope, 3
even though the thought be more painful
than death, that your passion is momentary,
and will die in our separation. They tell
me too that your relatives scorn your humble
love, so it were better that we part, although 1
you were free as I once deemed you.
"Eustace, we have been very happy togeth
er; the miserable life through which I had
passed faded into nothingness when your smile
rested upon me--when your hanod clasped I
mine. I have had a glimpse of heaven, but(
-themat.e~. r closed agrainst me, andi now a
bagk to the world, and the petty triumphs
which must henceforth be my all of life. I
bless you, my beloved one, for the joy you(
have given me. I b!.iss you for the happy
hours which were as stars in the black sky of
my existence. I will not say I forgir-e you,
for I have nothing to forgive-the heart isd
sometimes beyond our control, and does not
always go to the one whom fate wills should
possess the hand. Yet oh ! Eustace, lore
your betrothed. She is your equal in birth
and standing. I am only a stray waif cast upon
the shores of time for some unknown pur
pose, to glitter and dazzle awhile like a short
lived mneteor, and th~en to die, and be

FLORENCE DE VERE."
A year passed away ; and Eustace had only
heard from Florenice through the public
newspapers. The last intelligernce had been
a paragraph stating that she had failed to ful
fill a professional engagement in Paris because
of impaired health caused by a severe cold,
contracted in the trying climate of America.
He made no effort to regain her, for the reply 1
which he had written to her farewell note had
been returned unread. lie travelled occa
sionally- ' ay in society, and to the world
he seemed . ..,. .ae as ever. One only knewa
his sorrow-for thec world said that lie had
forsaken the cantatrice and ranked him among
the " gay de-civers"---one only kept bim,
from mnisanthrop~y, and that was Corn H~arvy.
Another year died ; and then on Christmas
night, the second anniversary of his first
meeting with Florence, while the saine sounds
of merriment were ringing without in the
same town where she had briefly reigned a
worshipped queen, Eustace picked up a for-.
eign newspaper, and read-the announcement
of her death!
Consumption had1 done its rapid work. The
queen of song-birds was roiceless in death!
Time is said to be the great physician who
heels all diseases-possibly he may effect a
cure, and yet the wound too often leaves a
hideous scar. Eustace Walcot had
" Learned to love another."
And Corn Harvy's early dreams were realised.
Yet by neither was the Opera singer forgot

their union, and played around their knees1
with its sweet pirattle and winning lisp was
called by mutual consent, Florence De Vere!e

In the early pa~rt of~ 1853, one of the imitators
f umy Phosphato en.ed to he pubilished an unaly
is, said to have been made by Prof. S. W. John
0, of Yalo College, o~ mny Phosphate, in which
o makes the value to be $40, for which I charged
50, and also stating the sulphate of liime necessa
ily formed by the action of the sulphurie acid on
aleined hones, ini the making of Super-phosphate,
Pla-ter oh Pauris; leaving it to be inferrcd, that
had added crude plaster in the manufacture. I
rote to Prof. Sillinman, senior, to ascertain who
'rot. Johnson, of Yale College, was, and then
earned flint no person of that name held a Profes
orship in Yale College, nor was there oven a itu
tent in the Collegc of that namce. I sutbsequiently
earned that this self-styled Professor S. W. John
on, was a student in the analytical laboratory in
he yard of Yale College, the use of which had
een given to Mr. Porter, to enable him to receive
uiils in chemistry. The n'ssociate pupil of S.
V. Johnson, was Mr. Solomnon Mead, who informed
e that Johnson as:i a fresh student at chenmistry,
nd that this analysis was among the first that ho
ad ade, antd that he acknowledged to Mr. Mead
hat my phosphate was better than any of the
thers he had tried, which included two specimens
f English phosphates. This analysis, by Mr.
iihnson was full of evident errors, all of which
rere pointed out by Dr. Charles H1. Enderlin, the
>mer associate of liaron Liebig, anud a well known
hemist of high standing. This paper will he
aund in the Workinmg Farmer, voil. 5, p. 121, and
ud most clearly shows S. W. Johnson to be egre
riumly in error. For a long time this gentleman
ras, we believe, absent in Europe: on his retutrn,
itupration seemed to be his alimnct, and lie imo
ediately publishedl a statement, that altough
iy phosphate was of exceeding good quality when
e first examined it, it had deteriorated, giving a
ew analysis, and evidently repeating the errors,
ointed out by Dr. Enderlin : he also attacked the
ssult of my experiments carefully made on toyI
ivn farm, with the mineral phosphates front Dover,
rown Point and elsewhere, which I pronounced
tbe valueless in ptractice, and which have proved
tin England andI elsewhere, where they have
sen shtipped. In a book lately published bmy
ref Johnson, called his " Essays on Conmmerciatl
anures," he clearly states that mineral phos
ba.t.. ... as valuable as those frotm b~oas: conse
ruently in his, opinion the chlorapatite or phos
phatic rock of New Jersey, contaiuiag ninety per i
aent. or more of phosphate of lime, must be repe
rior in quality, when finely ground, to tho best
bone dust; instead of which these mineral phos
phates, even after being finely ground and treated
with sulphurie acid, have no value as manure.
All-he attacks of this gentleman we have passed
by unnoticed, not only those written over his sig
nature, but his annonymous communications pub
lished in the Honesieod. We published the affi
davit of the foreman and all the workmen at the
factory, that no change in quality had ever taken
place in the Phosphates there manufactured, and
Rupposed this to be an entire refutation to the as
sertions of S. W. Johnson, founded upon an anal
ysis, the correctness of which had been entirely
disproved, not only by the communication of Dr.
Charles H. Enderlin, but by the analyses of Dr.
Enderlin, Prof. Hosford, of Cambridge, Dr. A. A.
Hayses, of Massachusetts, Dr. Antisell and others,
and by the opinion of Prof. Shepare., formerly of
Yale College, Prof. Higgins, of Baltimore, and
others, and still further disproved, by the certifi
cates of hundreds who had used the Phosphate for
a series of years.
In the article referred to in your paper, Prof.
yohnson commences thus:
" Of all the many fraudulent and poor manures
which have been from time to time imposed upon
our farmers during the last four years there is none
so deserving of complete exposure and sherp re
buke, as that series of trashy mixtures, known as
Mapes' Super-phosphates of Lime. It is indeed
true that worse manures have been offered for sale
in this State, but none have ever had to employ
such an amount of persistent humbuggery to bol
ster them up, as has been enjoyed by these."
Now permit me to ask whether this language is
befitting the office of a Chemist who wishes to do
a service to the public, or that of a special puffer,
which Prof. Johnson has most undeniably proved
himself to be, of volcanic Guanos, which are val
ueless as compared with Super-phosphates. In
his recent writings he has lost no opportunity for
puffing these miscalled guanos, and his late book,
is but a card for the vendors of these inferior pro
ducts in his neighborhood. He then says:
"Seven or eight years ago, Mapes' Improved
Super-phosphato was al.nost the only manure of
the kind on sale in our northern markets; then it
was of good quality," etc.
He afterwards says:
" And had a value (calculated on present prices)
of $44 per ton; it was sold at $50 per ton."
Why should Prof. Johnson calculate present
prices on an article which he states was sold at
$50 per ton seven or eight years ago ! In his ac
companying analysis, after admitting the presence
of sulphuric acid, he denies the presence of soluble
phosphates. This is, as he is well aware, chemi
My answer to the whole of this tirade is, that
the sales of Super-phosphate in the very district
where ho resides, and where the paper is published
in which he has written most, namely, Hartford
and New Haven, have been five times as great in
the year 1859 as any former year, and the follow
ing certificates from men of the highest standing
as agriculturists in his state and elsewhere, received
within the current year, are better evidences of the
Phosphates, than any analysis or opinion which
may be offered by this self-constituted servitor of
As you have given place to this unwarrantable
attack upon me, I ask in common fairness that
you will publish the above, together with the fol
lowing abridged certificates.
I also enclose you the full certificates, that you
may see that the abridgments are fairly miade.

A. BAGLEY, of New Haven, Ct., says:-" I
used it on turnips, by the side of Peruvian and
American Guanos, and I must say that it proved
better than either ; the Peruvian showed best for
the first few weeks, hut fell behind at harvest. An
equal value of Guano and Nitrogenized Super
phosphate were used."
MORRIS KETCHUM, Esq., of West Port, Ct.,
says:-" That on 20 acres of worn-out land, not
capable of producing by ordinary means 10 or I2
bushels of grain to the acre, he has raised the past
year, with 500 lbs. of Nitrogenized Super-pahos
pihate per acre, over 30 bushelse or white rye per
acre, and leaving a stund of grass equal to any he
ever saw." Within 12 months Mr. Ketchum~ has
JOUN S. BEACH, Esq., New Haven, Ct., has
used my Phosphate for Vegetable Giarden and

skillfully applied, render it, in my opinion, .11upe

preparation per acre.
It is a remaurkable facet that no Rust is seen in
the lanat where your Mlanure hats been used,
while all others showv Rust iniore or less, and this
is especially the case where Gunano huzs been used.

Triunoe, after opposing all manures, except Fern

this year on land which. with barn-yard manure
failed in corn in 1858, still with Phosphate it gave
a good crop of corn this year.
