The first box appears to disappear because it has become the clipping object. If you switch to the Outline mode (Command (Mac)/Control (PC)-Y toggles between the Preview and Outline mode) you will see that the rectangle that you used to create the mask is still there. Select it with the Direct Selection tool (white arrow) and apply a stroke and/or fill to it and it will once again appear in Preview.
