We take the following .extract from the Knickerbocker, the trath and force of which wiy be acknowledged by all our ladies, should they read it. After a short introductory, the writer stys : "This brings me ,10 tbe criticism I wished to make; you are too credulous. You will pin your faith to the veriest shadow : nd not all the world, not even your own bitter experience, can shake it. How-often you grant a man his most preposterous assuaiptions ! If he ssyr he is wise, or witty, you will believe him,- although his. fellows say he is a blockhead. He lays his soft hands on yours; and prates of upright ncss and purity, arid you smile upon and trust him, although half the world knows that he is a worthless profligate. A gentleman said in my hearing the other day, "You call that man a gentle man?" in speaking of your sex. 'How we do humbug them !' and to hjs own disgrace, and to the injury of trusting woman, I know tbat.be spoke the truth. A few months ago the London jour nalists were laughing about tbe exploits of a worthless vagabond, calling, him self Count PufiesBupskihi, or some such name. It appeared -that he lived by making love to the wealthy ladies, and then fobbing them. . 'When I get thro' with obc, I take another ' was his cool confession. He found women enough to swallow his story 4 Polish noble in exile,' and so they pityinyly received him to their hearts aad their purses. It seems incredible that a woman should believe all a stranger chooses to say of himself,; and give him her, with and her Honor upon the strength of his unattest ed declarations ; yet cases of this kind are of constant occurrence. You re member the boast of Aaron Burr, and you do know, too, how true he made it? Parton has told us the secret, be was an adept in flattery. 'He always flat tered a woman in those things upon which he knew she valued herseli; and the pure and the sjood fell before him. 'You play the fool one hour, and she wili ever after,' is more than compli mentary. Men think you love to' be flaitr-red.and yourojfn jipnduct jastifie the -belief. You Urn with a haughty, injured air from one who would defend you in all 'which you ought to value, as valiantly as ever knight of old, but he has too much straight-forward hon esty to pay you a single unmerited compliment, or to 'praise, your foibles; you turn from fBchjarojii,, tt witePand blush at hollow Vapj4"iuJUdoa.". j - 'Father, sb dlHotl.'. tall yea that' tbe gentleman whose aociety. pleases you so much, is not worthy of your confi dence; he plays the 'injured innocence' dodge; your woman's sympathies are aroused ; you declare the world merci less and misjudging; you faitcy your insight, because more kind, is therefore more 'true; and your bosoms glow in generous vindicatioa of unappreciated worth. And the wily words of one whom you have resolved to.trust, out weigh the warnings of friends, clear- judging and interested only is year welfare. Ah. ladies, wire, there none but you' to gtsat awardb.I fear unpre londinr merit would often go begging. ' .4 uvn i" ttt r while he who should blew the ibadesi trumpet, t would wia the moat apjlaasw; From Eve down to the latest case of scandal, women havef, allowed them selves to be daped,raad stilt refuse to be taught by bitter and. oft-repeated experience. 8t. Paul gays expressly thai Adam was. sot, deceived ; and pro bably, it is no poetical fancy which sap poses that, he gallantly plunged over board, resolved to share tbe fate of bis deareLthovgh. weaker, self., .w Now, I would not have you suspi cious or prudish; furthest possible from it I would have you believe that the world is full of true-hearted, trus-twor-thy men. But they are oftenest those who tell the rough, rugged truth in plain English; who distrust the 'sur face,' and quietly and unpretentiously weigh your true worth. If they find you empty, gilded toys, they will scorn you, but if they see in you unaffected delicacy, combined with artless candor, a pure, trustful woman heart, tbey yield you a whole souled reverence, which any woman might be proud to win. 'If you will be true toyourselve and to your own better instincts, true men will lore you with a nobler love than such sham sentimentav, would lead them to humor and pet you, while the neither trust nor resnect vou. Sister be worthy of it, and, those whom for ages, you have called 'lords', will reverently took up lo you as guiding spirits, and will guard you to the dead as a holy trust. 'Finally, in forming your estimate of a man, be assured lliat the candid opin ion of one of his owa sex is worth more than tbe judgementof two women. Men ar often poor judges of women, bat they know men better than you do.' CnifUsHwry Zt V Let Budc Bill. Ib the year 17fi0, one of the direc tors of the. Bank of England, a very rich man, had occasion for 30,000 which he was to pay as the price of an estate be bad just bought; to facilitate the matter, he carried the sum with him to the bank and obtained for it a bank bill. On his return home, he was sud denly called out upon some particular business, he threw the note carelessly on tbe chimney, out wnen ne earn back a few minutes afterwards, to look it up, it vxas.aol to be found. No one had entered the room; be could not therefore suspect any person. At last, after much ineffectual search, he was persuaded that it had fallen from the chimney into the fire. fr The director went to acquaint his colleagues with his misfortune; and as he was known 10 be a perfectly honora ble man, be was readily believed. It was only about four and twenty hours from the time that be had deposited his money; they thought, therefore, that it would be hard to refuse his request for a second bill. He receircd it upon giving an obligation to restore the hist bill if it should ever be found, or. pay the money himself if it should be pre sented by a stranger. About thirty years afterwards (the director having been long dead, and his heirs in possession of his fortune.) an unknown person presented the lost bill at the bank, and demanded pay merit. It was in vain that they men tioned to thfs individual tbe transaction by which that bill was aunulled ; he would not listen to it ; he maintained that it had come to him from abroad, and insisted oa immediate payment.' The note was payable to bearer, and the thirty thousand pounds were paid to mm. me neirs 01 me .uirccwr re fused restitution, and tbe bank was obliged to sustain the loss. It was dis covered afterwards, tbat an architect, having purchased the director's house, had it taken down, in order to build an other upon the same spot, had found the note in a crevice of the chimney, and made his discovery an engine for robbing tbe bank. Carelessness, equal to that here re corded, is not at all uncommou, and gives the bank enormous profit against which the loss of a mere thirty thous and pounds, is but a trifle. Bank notes havebeen known to light pipes, to wrap up snuff, lo be used as curl papers, and British tars, mad with rum and prize-money, have not unfrequently, in timo of war, eaten them as sandwiches between bread and butter. In forty years, between the years 1792 anil 1832, there were outstanding notes of the Bank of England, (presumed to have been lost or destroyed) amounting to one million three hundred and thirty odd thousand pounds, every shilling of which was clear profit to the bank.

' lUld aadtlMaUwwsr.' -i -A BXMABSABUt. T0BT.t " 4I'a large, lonely, -"bouse, sitaatedin thesoathof lasilarid. there ee.lived a lady and her two maid-servaaU.-r They were far away from all human habitations, bat tbev, seemed' to have ten bo tear, but to have dwWt there peacefully aad happily. IU waVthe lady's custom with her asaioWjtlgo round the house every" eveajago see if all the doors and windows were prop erly secured. One sight she bad, ac companied them as usual, and ascer tained that all was safe. They left her in the passage close to fcerumn room. and then went to their owa; which was quite at the outside of the house. As the lady opened the door; she distinctly saw a man under the bed. What could she do? Her servants-were faraway; and could not bear ttqr if.she screamed for help, and even if they had come to her assistance, these three' weak women were no match for a desperate house breaker. How, then, did she act? She trusted in God. Quietly she clos ed the door, and locked it on tbe, inside, which she was always in the habit of doing. She then leisurely brushed ber hair, and putting on her dressing gown, she took her Bible aad sat dowH to read. She read aloud, and chose a chapter that had peculiar reference to God's watchfulness over us, and constant care of us by night and by day. When it was finished, she knelt and prayed at great length, still uttering her words aloud, especially commending herself and servants to uod s protection, and dwelling upon their utter helplessness, and dependence upon Him to preserve them Irom all danger. At last she rose from her knees, put out her candle, and laid down in her bed, but she did not sleep. After a few minutes had elaps ed, 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 have uttered, no power on earth could induce me to hurt you, or touch a thing in your house. But you must remain perfectly quiet and not attempt to in terfere with me: 1 shall now give a signal to my companions, which they will understand, and then we will go awayand you may sleep in peace, for I give you my solemn word no one shall harm you, and not the smallest thing belonging to you shall be disturbed." lie then went to the window, opened it, and whistled softly. Returning to the lady's side (who had not spoken or moved) he said, "Now I am going. Your prayer has been .heard, and no disaster will befall you." He then left the room, and soon all was quiet, and the lady fell asleep, still upheld by that calm and beautiful faith and trust. When the morning dawned, and she awoke, we may feel assured she pour ed out her thanksgivings and praises lo Him who had "defended" her "under His wings," And kept her "safe under his feathers," so that she was not "afraid of any terror by night." The man was true to his word, and not a thing in the house had been taken. Oh!, shall we not hope that his heart was changed from that day forth and that he forsook his course, and cried to that Savior, "who came to seek and save that which was lost," and even on the cross did not reject the penitent thief. From this story let us learn to put,our whole trust and confidence in God. The lady's courage was indeed wonder ful, but the Lord was her defense upon her right hand, and "with Him all things are possible. London Packet. ADDITIONAL. We have received an extract from a letter fully corroborating the remarkable anecdote of "ThrLady aad the Robber," ia our Oct. number, aad adding some facts tbat enhance tbe wonder and mercy of her escape. We quote the words or the letter: "in the nrst place the robber told her that if she had given the slightest alarm or token of resis tance, he had fully determined to mur der her. so that it was God's good guid ance that told her to follow the course she took." Then before he went away he said: "I must have the book you read out of," and rarried off her Bible, willingly enough given, you maybe sure. This happened many years ago, and only comparatively recently did the ladv hear anv more of him. one was attending a religious meeting in. York shire, where after several aoted clergy and others had spoken, a maa arose, stating that he was employed as one of tbe book-hawkers ot, me society, ana told tbe storr. of the midnight adven ture, as a testimony of the wonderful oower of the word of God. He con eluded. "I was that man." The lady rose from her seat in the hall, and said nuifltlv. "It is all auite true. I was that lady." and sat down. London Pack. Curran, opposed to Lord Clare, said that he reminded him of a chimney sweep, who had raised himself by dark and dusky ways, and then called aloud to the aeighborhoed to witness his dirty elevation! If we were-asked what physio'iaa stood at the top of his profession, we thoald say it was .tha gentleman who was is the habit of attending "patieBts on a monument;" " ' . -v KntTriawfa , Major Horatio Aleav the eagiaeer of the .Mew York aad fine Kailroad, ta a speech'- made durinr the recent festival occasion, gave the foHowiag account of the first trip made oa a.toeomotive-oa this continent: , -n "It was in the, year 1828, on the banks of the Lacka waxen, at the com mencement of the railroads connecting the canal of the'Delaware asd fladsba Canal Company, with 'tiseir coal atiaea, and he who addressee !yoa was the only person oa. that locomotive. Tbe cir cumstances which led to ray being alone on the engine were these : The road had beea built in the summerthe struc ture was of hemlock Umber, aad rails of large dimensions notched on caps plac ed far apart. The timber had cracked and warped from exposure to the sun. After about 300 feet of straight liae the road crossed the' Laekawaxen Creek on trestle work, about thirty feet high, with a curve of three hundred aad fifty five to four hundred feet radius. The impression' was very geaeral that the tron monster would either break down the road or it would leave the track at the curve aad plunge, into the creek. My reply to such apprehensions was that it was too late to consider the pro bability of such occurreaces; there was no other' coarse thau to have a trial made of the strange aaimal, which had been brought, here at great expense ; but tbat it was not necessary that more than one should be involved in its fate; that I woald take the first ride alone, and the time would come when I should look, back to the incident with great in terest. As I placed ray hand on the throttle-valve handle, I was andecided whether 1 should move slowly or with a fair degree of speed; but, believing that tbe road woald.. prove safe, aad ptefering if we did go, down. to. go handsomely, aad without any evidence of timidity, I started with considerable velocity, passed the curve over the creek. safely, and was soon oat of hear ing of the vast assemblage. At the end of two or three miles 1 reversed the valve and returned without accident, having thus made the first railroad trip by locomotive on the Western Hemi sphere. ATEADEAFOlTUli. If parents woald consider the welfare and happiness of their .children, they would choose the virtuous mechanic. farmer, or honest trader, as companions and helpmates, instead of the rich, who aside from their income have no means ofsubsistence. ' How often docs this question arise, and from religious parents, too, in choeing companions and suitors tor their daugh ters. ; "Is ho rich?" If the daughter an swers," Yes, he is rich, he is a gentle man, neat ia his dress, and can live without work," the parents are pleased. Not maiiv years ago, a Polish lady, of plebeian birth, but of exceeding beau ty and accomplishments, won the affec tions of a young nobleman, who having her consent, solicited her from her fath er in marriage, and was refused. We may easly imagine the astonishment of the nobleman. "Am I not," aaid he, "of saficient rank to aspire to your daugter's haad?' ' "You are undoubtedly of the best blow! of Poland." -"And my fortune and reputation are they not" "Your estate is magnificent; aad yoar conduct is irreprochable." Then, having your daughter's con sent, how should lexpect.a refusal?" "This, Sir," the father replied, " is my only child, aad her happiness is the chief concern of my -life. vAll the pos sessions of fortune are precarious ; what fortune gives to her caprice she takes away. I see no security for the inde pendence and comfortable living of a wife but one ; in a word, 1 am resolved tbat no one shall be she. husband of my daughter who is ot at.,the same time roaster of a trade l" The nobleman bowed, aad retired si lently. A year or two after the father was sitting at the door, and saw ap- E reaching the house wagons ladea with assets, and at the head of the caval cade a person .in the dress of a basket maw. And who do vou suppose it was ? The former suitor of his daugh ter, the nobleman, hnd turned basket maker. He was bow master of a trade and brought the wares made by his own bands for inspection, and a certificate frcm his employer in testimony of his skill- r . .. . Tha coaditioaa beiBir fulfilled, ao further obsticle was opposed to tbe mar riage. But the story is Botyet doae. The revolution came, fortunes were plundered, and lords were scattered as chaff before the lour wiads of heavea. Kings became beggars, some of them trachers : and the noble Pole supported his wife and father in the infirmities of age, by his basket-making industry. Aa Irishman, fishing ia the rain, was observed carefully koepmjr his line aa der the arch of tbe bridge.

AaoadoU af Stafhea Girard. Old Girard had a favorite Clerk, and he always said 'he intended to do well by Ben Lippincott.' So when Ben'got to be twenty-oaehe expected to hear the Governor say something of bis fu ture prospects, and perhaps lend a help incr hand ia starting him. in the world. But the old fox carefully avoided the subject Ben mastered courage. 'I suppose I am now free, sir aaid he, 'aad I thought I woald aay- something to .you as to my course. What do,, you think I had better do? 'Yes, yes, 1 know you are,' said the old millionaire, 'and my advice is that you go arid learn the cooper's trade. ' This application of 'ieo nearly froze Ben oat. bat recovering his equilibri um.' he said if Mr Girani waa ia eara est. he would do so.'
