Resolved, That in the sudden manner
in wmcn toe inscrutable decree of tne
Mishe Manitou was carried out in the
removal of onr brother, the shock filled

that a giant tree while in the, vigor of

be difficult to fill.

upright neighbor, the state a good and

Resolved, That to his afflicted relatives
we extend our heartfelt sympathy, and,
while we mourn with them the loss of

Oar. reporter has had a serious time of
it today, for items have failed to materi
alize and all sources of information that
usually yield eorne returns were dry and
fruitless. Just about disheartened, the
weary scribe citme across .the smiling
and genial Col. Sinnott, and hence' this
tale. " '-
We spoke of the rqbbery of Louis Dav
enpor.t a week ago, the robbery having
taken place in 1863, or thereabouts, and
the fact, that a man 'Was here inquiring
into the matter. The man went down
to visit Mr. Davenport last week, and
today, as a result of that visit, Mr.
Davenport is in the city. The stranger
has been very reticent, bis actions being
also decidedly "queer." In the coarse
of a two or three days visit, by putting'
disconnected statements together, Mr.
Davenport has gathered, that the man
who picked up his grip containing the
$8,000 in gold dost is, or was,. known to
this stranger. That sometime since,
realizing that he was approaching the
giave, the man who took the money
made a will, and in this will he provid
ed for the re-pay menf of the $8,000, with
interest at legal rates from the day it
was taken until it shall have been paid.
The ill-gotten money, it seems, pros
pered in. his hands, and be was able to
do this. Not long since he died, and the
stranger now here has knowledge of all L
the facts. The heirs and the adminis
trator of the estate are making no effort
to find r the legatee, and unless the
strange gentleman discloses his knowl
edge it. may be impossible for Daven
port to get his' money. In the mean
while another claimant comes forward,
a mysterious "French Charley," wbo.
it is claimed, and not Davenport, lost
the money. The latter claims, so the
Col.'-says, are endorsed -by Mr.- Emit
There promises to be a pretty muddle
grow out of the situation, and it is prob
ably the legal fraternity will get a
whack at the coin before the matter is
settled. As the sum now amounts to
over $27,000 it will be seen' that the
fight might may become interesting.
Col Sinnott is, however, confident that
he is right, that Davenport, and not
"French Charley, lost the money, and
as the Colonel is generallv right, and
has a memory whereof none may run
to ine contrary, we put our money on
his sice of the case.

ilow Will Responsibility Affect Women?
- Eliza Sproat Turner of Philadelphia.
. - Mr. Lectcy, in ma.' valuable work on
"Democracy and liberty, finds one
source of danger in the increasing in
fluence of women in politics. He thinks
their tendency in trying to reform the
world would be to over-legislation. They
have thrown themselves, for instance.
into the question of temperance in such
a way as to "considerably alter its pros
pects." And the same is trne of vivi
section,. ' which they are disposed not
only to guard, but o abolish, thus doom
ing thousands ot . human beings to an
nntold amount of preventible suffering.
"There have been," he says, "ages in
which insensibility to suffering was the
prevailing vice of public opinion-. In
onr own, perhaps, more is to be feared
from wild gusts' of unreasoning, uncal
culating, byBterical emotion."
I think that common fairnees compels
as to acknowledge the at least partial
truth of these opinions. Because women
are by nature more compassionate, be
cause, in their more domestic lives, they
see so distinctly the immediate results
of intemperance, of immorality, of cru
elty, they are more likely to be tempted
(until they learn its futility) to over
legislation and over-coercion, to sweep
ing the whole world clean of sin and
error by one grand whisk of the broom
of the law. When it comes to the "wild
gusts of emotion,", however, I doubt if
we could much exaggerate the methods
of our brothers ; their little ways at a
nominating convention, for instance,
wbere.the correct thing is for the dele
gates to climb. on chairs and tables, to
ecreech, to howl, to roar, to break into
sobs, to embrace each other, etc., by
way of expressing their political opin
ions; and not about any question that
might be called ethical either. Our
doings could scarcely be more hysterical
than those in the bedlam, of any city
Bourse, and we should find it hard to be
more nncalculating than was onr con
gress a. short time ago on receiving the
message of the president concerning
Venezuela, when, without pausing to
consider consequences, without stopping
to consider the unimportance of the
issue with the awful results of a possible
war, they set to -work on their resolu
tions of approval, which were to give
the cue fo a nation, with the glee of a
parcel of children starting a fire.
The fact is, 'we -vould do better to
say that nnreasonlngness - is the tend,
ency of the human race, and we can
afford to admit that the feminine half,
from the difference of the conditions in
which it baa been reared, and from
that absence of responsibility which
always makes' people more reckless in
the expression of ..opinions, have been
thus far even more disposed than men
to speak without consideration. Make
every woman responsible, let her real
ize that when she' says' a man ongnt to
be bung she is helping to hang him,
and that when she advocates war, she
is helping to send the men to the field,
and after the first wantonness of power,
especially of the supposed power to
legislate sin and suffering out of the
world, her sense of accountability will
steady ner. . And then it will sorely
not beamiss that she will bring the
humanitarian view of a political ques
tion more frequently to the front.
