A Letter t the Ladieg.
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.

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.

"
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;" " '

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

The revolution came, fortunes were
plundered, and lords were scattered as

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.

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.' '1 am is earnest;'
and Ben forthwith roaht the best
cooper in Spring Garden, became, an
apprentice, and in due time could make
aa good a barrel as the best: Hean"
nounced'to 'old Stephen that ''he had
graduated, aad waa ready to setup business-
The .old manjseemed gratified,
and immediately idered4bree of the
best barrels he "could tarn out. Bea
did liis prettiest, and wheeletFtheas up
to the old mart-'s coaatiag room. Old
Girard pronounced them first-rate, aad
demanded the price. 'Oae dollar,.' said
Ben, 'is as low as I can live by-
'Cheap enough make oat your hill.'
Tbe bill was made oat, aad old Steve
settled it with a check for 920,000,
which he accompanied with this little
moral to the story: "There, take that,
aad invest it in tbe best possible bub-
ner, and if you are unfortunate and lose
it, you will have a good trade to fall
back upoa, which will afibrd yoa a
good living."

Fiva Paa Cbst. A somewhat ver-
daat iadividual called oa a jeweler ia
Montreal, aad stated that, he had maa-
aged to accumulate, by hard labor for
the past few years, some seventy-five
dollars; tbat he wished to invest in
something, whereby he might make
money a little faster, aad he bad eoa-
oluded to take some of his stock aad
neddle it oat. . The jeweler selected
what he thoaght woald sell readily,
and the new peddler started on hu first
trip. He was' gone tut a few days,
whea he returned, bought 'as much
agaia as before, and started onhia sec
ond trip. Again he returned, aad
greatly increased his stock. Pe suc
ceeded ao well, and accumulated so
fast, that the jeweler oae day asked
whatp'rofit he obtained oa what ha aaid?
''Well. I pat on 'bout five per ceat."
The jeweler thought Jhat a very
small profit, aad expressed as much'.
"Well." said the peddler, "I aWt
know as I exactly aaderataad 'beat per
cent, but aa article for which I pay
yoa oae dollar, I generally, sell for fire!"
