"While it is true tbat the great major ity of the women of America did uot get the man of their choice as nomi nee for Presidential honors in the com ing Republican campaign, it is also true that they have not the ghost of a show for political freedom in any other party. "We have not not been wan tins in cour teous overtures of amnesty toward our Liberal Republican, but really illiberal Democratic brethren, who have swal lowed Greeley whole, taken possession of Ids citadel and hoisted him at the end of their banner, from whence he looks down upon them with a self-com placent grimace, as much as to say : "What an honcel Democrat I am !

Some Democrats who are in favor of AVoman Suffrage do not like the stand taken by such leaders as Miss Anthonv, Mrs. Stanton, Mrs. Livermore, Mrs. Gordon, and others, ant! such papers as the Woman's Journal, Pioneer and Xew Xokthwest, in favor of the Re publican parly. Had the (so-called) Liberal candidate for President been a wide-awake, thorough-going Progres sionist, running upon an equal rights Platform, there is no doubt but that lie would have commandsd the support n,nw SulrraBit throughout the land. But from first to last the Lib erals ignored the demands of women Then came the Pl,llaUt4plliae0U;i tiou.and although it did not do much :sr u s Baltimore was now the last chance for an unconditional, uneomproniHmr demand for equal suflrage. AVith a demand iu their platform the Demo crats would have placed themselves on record as the progressive party of the country, aud thereby infused new lire into their then decaying aud now dead organization. But, alas, the leaders saw it not. The Convention was sim ply an echo of Cincinnati. To show conclusively, however, that AVoman Suflragists need expect nothing from I the Liberal Republican-Democratic coalition, wc give the following resolu tions which were Introduced at the Bal timore fiasco on behalf of the Woman Suffrage Democrats and were referred the Committee on Platform, but were not allowed to come before the Convention: Jiceolred.

Drak New Xortjiwiwt : Leaving Salt Lake City, from which place I last addressed you, after having lectured in Brigham Young's Temple to the Mormon faithful, for which I ex pect my man's rights brethren to be consistent and accuse mc of espousing Mormon doctrine, I hied mc onward to this Golden City by the sea, where for one week I have been diligently en gaged in necessary preparation to fling my banner to the breeze for Graut and Wilson, as the nearest exponents in the present political field of the doctrine of equal rights, humanity and progres sion. I was last night greeted by an im mense audience, a fine band of music and any amount of enthusiasm at Piatt's Hall, where I spoke for nearly two hours upon "What I know about politics and Horace Greeley." I hoped to get off to-day on the steam- cr for home, but business which do - nvmds inv iwrsonal attention prevents. and I must remain a few days longer. I am spoiling for the chances of the Presidential row, and must work out mv mission.

Upon this tho Boston InvcMiyator well remarks: "Ministers nreach much airainst the 'social evil,' which will probably con tinue while women are obliged to work for thirty-one cents a day, and out of this sum pay rent, provisions, clothing, etc." Is it any wonder that a few of the vast number of oppressed laboring women go atray?

Leaving New York the same morn ing that tlte editor of the New North west left there for the Boston AVoman Suffrage Convention, a ride of eight hours over the reuusvlvania Central Railroad brought me to Huntington, Pennsylvania, a thriving, pleasantly situated town iu. the Alleghany Moun tains. Owing to delay of letters and failure of telegrams (which are vexa ciously common, by the way), much doubt prevailed in regard to the an nounced meeting, until our arrival at eight o'clock removed it, and about a hundred earnest and Intelligent men aud women gathered in the hall to hear for the first time a lecture upon AVoman Suffrage. Philipsburg, one of the most thriving and pleasant villages in all that roman tic aud picturesque region, is located on the side of a mountain in the Alleghany range at an altitude of about two ihnns- aud feet. The people are healthy, men tally vigorous and decidedly progres sive A large audience was in attend ance upon the lecture. From Philipsburg to Osceola and Charfield pleasant little towns like Philipsburg, and situated in the moun tains on a branch of the 1'ennsvlvania Railroad where we lectured one even ing at eacli place, and met with encour aging success, considering the iguorance or the people in'all that section of coun try upon the AVoman Question. Sub scribers to the New Northwest were obtained in each of the above places. which would prove that the interest awakened by our pioneer lectures was not inconsiderable. All that is needed to be done iu Penn sylvania in order to secure to woman the right to vote is the thorough can vassing of the State by some good lec turer, prepared with arguments and printed documents to rouse the people up to a consideration of the question be- fore the State Constitutional Conven-' tiou, which takes place sometime the coming fall, convenes, of which fact not many of those we conversed with upon the subject seemed to be informed, so little interest in political matters is felt uy me masses oi voters.

I ! few days very pleaantly with some friends known years ago as advocates or all that pertains to Human Rights, aud who still remain true thereto. Lectured here one evening to good audience. Again journeying eastward, in re sponse to an invitation from friends in Philadelphia, to attend the yearly meet ing of Progressive Friends at Txmgwood, Pennsylvania, we had a "feast of rea- the! son," and a season or social and Intel ' lectual enjoyment was entered upon and continued unabated through three days. The record or these annual meetings ex tends through two decades, giving evi dence or the devotion or noble men and women to the great principles or Hu man Progress and Equal Rights. It would be difficult to find as large a pro portion of young men and women In any similar society in tlie country as are to be found in this faithful laml of earnest workers. At this, as at all pre vious meetings, tlie Friends gave their "testimony" iu favor of Peace, Temper ance, AVoman Suflrage, etc., and excel lent shaking characterized the discus sions. Mrs. Livermore, of Boston, who was the officially invited speaker for tliis year (it being their custom to spe cially invite one lecturer for each an nual gathering), was most interesting and entertaining in her remarks. She prefaced her fine lecture on AVoman Suf frage with the facetious remark that to talk to the people there assembled in fa vor or Woman Suffrage was like taking coals to Newcastle, .since it would be but repeating their own views; but none could object to hearing their pet doc trines, however hackneyed by constant discussion, presented in so eloquent and charming a manner, even again and again. Having decided to attend tlie Demo cratic Convention at Baltimore and make a last ctfiirt to have a great na tional party recognize ttncrjuivoctrily our right to vote, we started AVest to visit friends of other days, stayed a few days at Tyrone, the same at Cincinnati, and then to Xenia, Ohio, where wc passed two days at the Soldier's and Sailor's Orphans' Home. Dr. Griswold, the Su perintendent, and his amiable wife, tlie matron, and Mrs. Barlow, assistant matron, are all friends to our cause; and the weekly visits of the Boston Woman' Journal arc fully appreciated there. Will the Xi:v Xouthwest keep it company? Space will not permit a de tailed account of the judicious manage ment and wise arrangement of this Home, but in brier will state that tlie institution is all the word home can convey. The children, girls and boys, ot whom there are nearly three hund red, are the healthiest, rosy-cheeked, happy-faced troop of urchins to be seen anywhere. About one hundred of the children left the Home ou a visit to re lations or friends during vacation, the last day wc remained, and the affection ate leave-takings between tlie teachers aud matrons and the children wcrei touching in the extreme. The little folks sobbed out their "good-byes" with tears, aud their assurances of love for those remaining could not be doubted. The permanent buildings (except three or four cottages) are unfinished, and temporary quarters are now occupied, which renders the labor of the officers and teachers very arduous; but this will end iu a few weeks, as the Home is be ing rapidly completed. In proof or tne excellent sanllarv condition of the insti tution, which is evidence of its superior management, Is the fact that during its continuance, two vears and a half, Willi from fifty to near three hundred in mates, at present but three deaths have occurred. From Xenia to St. Louis for a brief visit; thence here, en route to Balti more. Of its Convention will write you next week. Laura DeForce Gordon. Cincinnati, July 5, 1S72. A WORD TOR OREGON. Some of our Eastern brethren seem to think that our far AVcslern country pos sesses no attractions that could indueo them to give up the glories of Yankee life anil be happv, nay, T mean content ed, in our faraway paradise. Alt, we know that few who have had a glimpse of Oretron will ever bo satisfied else where. AVcbfoot is a wonderful lata even to her children a bright, beautiful land, filled with birds and Howers, and everything else that goes to make up an Eden. One must certainly bo very dull not to appreciate all this loveliness, Again, our Yankee friends pretend to believe that Oregon Is inhabited by the very dregs of creation ; that no person of average ability would be guilty of the sin of living iu our dear little State. Not long since I picked up a paper, pub lished in Ohio, which gave an account of an outrage committed on some white men by the Indians of the Silelz reser vation of Orcson, concluding with the words that it would cause a terrible war, and would very probably end witi the extermination of the whites in that nortion of the country. Now. isn't this x good joke? And why have we never heard of the threatened danger? AVhat a pity our dear friend was so verdant iu the history of the AVest. That's where all the calumnies spoken of Oregon arise with men that are entirely ignor- ant of the fact that ours is even a civil izetl State; who teem to think we liv iu hollow trees, surrounded at all times bv a band of howling savages. Now, this is rich, and goes to prove the intel ligence of our neighbors. I have lived j the few years of my life in Oregon !fiid am tirotid of the honor of belli!? a j fanning is done upon a much larger scale than our Xew England brethren could deem possible. Our grain grows to a larger size, on account of having men or brains to till the soil, as should be done. That is not all; perhaps our Eastern Mends can also boast that. Our soil is richer, much richer, thau that ot any or the Eastern States. Even though wo are so much in advance or our par ent States, we will give the emigrants, one and all, that arc talking or coming here a cordial welcome, and teach them the value or AVcstcrn hospitality. I was almost done when the latest X. A'. Tribune arrived, and in glancing over its columns I noticed a terrible in justice done Oregon, in the shape or a letter rrom a fellow signing himself II B. Perhaps you noticed it also. If so, you can bear witness to the healthiness or this State against tlte misrepresenta tions or this rellow. Where did he go lo have tho ague in Oregon? I'll tell you first to one or those low-down whiskey shops which are tlie only dis grace that can be cast on the AVebreet; next to some swamp, where he laid down on his two blankets, and experi enced a slight touch or snakes running away with him, and arose to find Iiim scir iu an ague fit or delirium tremens. Oh, shame! Another accusation about white men walking the streets or Port land for want or anything else to do, while Chinamen were employed because or their working cheap. Now, I shall not deny that there are more dandies in Portland than are needed ; but let them scatter out and go to some honest em ployment; there is plenty or It waiting for them at good wages. I know this to be a fact, for here in Benton county I hear almost all or the runners complain ing that they cannot get men at any price. Understand, these gentlemen are mot or them rrom older States, come out here to put on style and be some body or importance among the Oregonl ans, nntl are fiir too proud to earn their living by the sweat or their brow. Serves them right, say I, to be obliged to come to that. Again, Mr. E. B., there is another and raiser tale than either I have yet spoken or; it is about the climate or Oregon, ami about the Orcgonians going to the mountains during the awAil hot(?) sum mer season. The climate is mild very seldom do wc have intense heat or cold. True, we have considerable ralu during the winter months, but as to the moss growing so thickly over the house-tops that we have to dig it otr, why, that is raise. Ir, as you say, you have ever vistetl Oregon, why need you go back to New York with raise tales or AVebfoot? Sir, do you remember what the Bible says about tale-bearers? Do not think we are dying to have any r your New Yorkers out here; 'tis only for their takes, not ours, that wc arc urgiug them to come. And I think Mrs. Sawtcllc deserves great credit for her persever ance ; next you may thank Mrs. Duni way. Both or these ladies have done a great deal for tho AVcst. Girsv.

A dispute arises whence pleas antness or life proceeds; viz, not from external employments, but rrom the study ot wisdom. An ignorant abbot will by no means have his monks to be learned ; nor has he himself so much as a single book in his closet. Pious wom en in old times gave their minds to the study or Scriptures; but monks that bate burning, and give themselves up to luxury, idleness aud hunting are pro voked to apply themselves to other kinds of studies more becoming their profession.

A Sword which Cuts on All Side. The following is a part of a letter written by Mr. Wendell Phillips on the canvass: "A'ott know that T am neither a Re publican or a Grant man. A hotn shall 1 vote lor, or wiieuier suau x voie ai an, I do not know. But certainly as against Greeley, I am for Grant. We have had one Andy Johnson; I will not run the risk of another in iiorace ureeiey. i want a man with some decided princi ples; Greeley never had an3 Besides, I consider Greeley a secession caunuiaie. f believe the nlot to nominate him was hatched by some southern white rebels more than a year ago, and has been mainly nursed b- them. T advise any one who means to vote for him to tintl out first what agreements have been made bv Mr. Greeley's friends with Jell. Davis and his stall as to oilice and patronage. I am perfectly certain that there is a distinct mutual underetand- ng, if not a positive contract between them. If Horace Greeley enters the White House, Jell. Davis will be as truly a part of the Administration as Sewanl was in Lincoln's days. No ne gro can vote for Greeley who values his life or property or cares for his race. Jt bv a frown of Providence he is elected, I shall advise every Southern loyalist to load the revolvers that Grant's arrest of North Carolina Ku-ICIttx has allowed to be laid aside. If he is elected, let the negroes live in snuads of fifty, whom no cowanl will dare shoot down, and show- no property after sunset. Iotieiy men will be shot, and no black will own a mule forty-eight Hours it any reuei knows tlie fact. "As for Adams, I tlo not fear htm an aristocrat bv birth and a Democrat by pervcrseness the love of money makes such a union possible. He is a Demo crat, but afraid lo contess his creed or wear its unitorm. it any party allows him to leatl it, he will lead it to its grave, as all tne .Adamses nave always done. Old John Adams' vauity, bigotry aud bale or Hamilton put the federal party into us tomb. John Quiiicy Adams' administration was the death blow to the AVhig party, then called Re publicans. The light which gutts tne Adamses is that of sunset. They insure defeat. Chatham said Sir ANilham Young's voice was the death-knell of his country. The breath of an Adams' fame has tlie emu ot the ciiarnei-nouso In it. Let them nurse their money-bags like timid misers, and allow nobler and more unselhsh men, whose foreheads arc lit by the rising sun, to help tho world forwanl, undisturbed by their greedy ambition or their querulous crotchets. "For a loyal administration, to pro tect the negro, awe the rebel and give the working men a chance, Grant's lit tle linger is worth a baker's dozen or Greeley's. A'ott rs, "Wkxdeix Phi i.t.i re."

AVhile the tides on the Atlantic slope ebb and llow twice each day with but a slight difference between the two suc cessive high and low waters occurring before and after noon, those or the Pa cific, flowing twice a day also, vary con siderably in height, ami the intervals between" the recurrence ot high and low water are irregular. Shoaling bottoms and the configuration of the Pacific Coast line, no doubt, cause this marked (inference; but nowhere, probably, are there greater variations iu the titles ob servable, s far as periodicy and equal ity is concerned, than the w'aters of Pu get Sound. Here we have a combina tion of about all the different classes of tides known to scientific research usu ally two each day, sometimes only one, and occasionally scarcely any percepti ble ebb or llow. Tide tables, with the exception of giving information as to the extremes between the highest and lowest water, gotten up for this arm of the sea, would alfonrabout as much ex act knowledge of the magnitude and time of the tides at any given place, for each day of the year, as do the predic tions contained iu a comic almanac or the changes in the weather. However anomalous the tides maybe, though, iu their periodical returns and magnitude, the extremes all over the Sound are but slightly in excess on an average with the rise and fall at the principal ports in the State of Massa chusetts, and not so great as at Cher bourg and Havre, in r ranee, aud .Lou don docks, in England ; and nowhere at any of the Sound ports are there, as has been the supposed by many bororo com ing here, such rapid risings and fallings of the tide, or such tidal currents, as render it unsafe or at an dinteuic tor vessels to lay at anchor neither could there well be when the strongest tidal current, at least at this port, does not exceed one mile and a half per hour. The extreme difference between the highest rise and lowest fall or the wa ters at the following ports on the oast side of the Sound, during the Spring Tides, is as follows: Olympia 22 feet (Meeker puts it as high as 24 feet); Steilacoom, 19 to 20 ; Tacoma, IS to 19 ; Seattle, IS; Mukiltoe, 15; Bellingham Bay, 12; and Semiahmoo Bay, 6. Suck extreme difference is infrequent, how ever, and during the eap Tides of course the difference is much more re duced. It will also be noticed that, as we follow the above coast line up the Sound, the hcighth of the tide slowly increases, till at Olympia it attains its greatest magnitude. This is owing to the convergence of the shores, or tho de crease in width of the Sound as it ap proaches the last named point. One as Good as the Other. Talk about the changeable character of wom en! Present her moods and phases in all their variegated hues, and then turn to find their corresponding colors in ev ery slightest tinge and shade in man. True as gospel, men are equally as changeable as women. If the time over comes when women cease to be an in teresting target for men's sarcasm, ridi cule and false charges of inconstancy, fickleness, gossip, frivolity, vanity, co quetry, etc., there will be a dearth or tonics amonsr them. Certainly they cannot then turn to the contemplation ortheirown idiosyncracios, peculiarities, weaknesses aud faults. In woman they have exhausted the subject. A truce to charges aud counter-charges. Men ami women are just as good as anybody else, and neither are as good as they should be. i7ft)i Orion.
