Wo deem It but just to ourselves, and due to those who may have sates of our manufacture, to notify them and tlie public generally, because a small sale of tbc Marisud Patent lias l«eeu burned in the late demonstration on the Rack Ray lands, that there is no cause for a loss of confidence in Its merits—hut on the contrary, when all the facts become know n, we think tlie result will be creditable to tbe Mailand Patent than otherwise. We propose to expose a few of the attempted deceptions, anil the unfair means employed in this demons ration, and leave the pub lic to stigmatise them what they please. Mr. Saobom says, “ these six safes were all new and w arranted." This, so tar as tlie Marlaud safe is concerned, is a falsehood. We never did “ war rant ’a sate. The Marland sale usod at the burn ing was a second hand safe, built not less than lour years since. Neither was it tie sate that was ex hibited in the streets as the one to be burned. The safe exhibited was a larger sale, (No. C,) of more re cent build. Tlie one burned was a smaller (No. 2) and second hand, where or how obtained we know not, but not bought from us, nor had wo any knowl edge that wo were to be represented in tlie demon stration, until by accident hearing ol tbe sales being exhibited In the street. Sanborn's friends made three clandestine efforts to buy safes from us, but were un successful. From several parties who were on the ground and witnessed the proceedings, wo learn at an early stage of the burning the Sanborn improved safe showed evident signs of destruction, the back of the sate opening for quite a distance, thedour bulging out, and consequently the Are around it was immedi ately reduced, and tbe sate allowed to cool down; and from eye witnesses it has been stated to us at no time through the day was the fire around it raised to the rlglnal point. i no smanur siues sroou emoeaueu In live coals one quarter tlielr height, and the flames enveloped them wholly, while the bottom of the large safe and the Sanborn Improved were barely reached with the coals, and the flames barely covered half the safe.— The Sanborn safe was in the most favorable position, at the windward end of the line, where it received the cold air constantly. The JUarland was in the most exposed place, at the leeward end of the line, where jt received all the escaping heat from the lire above It was openly stated by numerous parties on the Sound, that “the little safes had a groat deal more e than tho large ones,” and upon some persons stating this to the parties conducting the bundin' a tragic rush would lie made with one stick ol wood toward the large safes, and thrown at them in such a manner as in many instances to help the lire around the smaller sates most. At several hours through the day we saw tho con dition of tho lire to be the same, the smaller sales re telymg the most determined efforts at destruction, while the large ones, in the most favored position were simply being kept warm. From what we our jelves witnessed, it Is our firm belief that had the mine amount of Are been kept around the lar"c safeB is was first started in the morning, those sales would tiavo been destroyed early in the dav, and that noth ing but the reduced condition of the Are and their fa vored position prevented it. As late as 2 o’clock the Mariand sail: showed no ap parent signs ol disruption, the iron work holding its iliape perfectly. Jt was remarked by parties witness ng its condition, “that safe is giving them the most •rouble,” and since the result we have been compli nented by parties wholly disinterested upon the mau ler our safe resisted the effects ol the heat. Though t was announced at the outset by tho parties con 1 acting the affair that “that safe was to bo burned inyhow,” and for certain once in th > dav it was jailed out, “burn that end safe,” it was the last to rield. This was the manner the affair was conducted from he beginning, but the ceownino deception was ■eserved for the last, and most skilfully was it con lucted. The doom of the “little safes” had boon exult ingly innouuced by Sanborn from the top of each. When le reached the first large sale and the door opened he flames burst out. The Sanborn Improved was ■ext opened, a part of the papers taken out, and the loor hastily closed again, but not soon enough to pre 'ent at leant three oernons seeing the SAFE WAS ON PIKE INSIDE, IN THE LOWB LEFT HAND 30RNEK, and u|K>u the request of a gentleman near t to open the door again, Sanborn save “no, keep It ihut; it is all right,” and concluded the tarce In ex daiming, “I have obtained what the world has long tought lor, a Are proof safe,” while it was in Acmes inder his teet. Long experience in practical applica tion of the doctrine of universal salvation may imooth the tongue so as to utter suchjdeeei.lions with out stammering, hut ignorance of tlic i« laris is the inly excuse we can attiibute to some af the other parties who have lent their approval to these prac ices.
