"Will you permit me to say a "word
io relatWo to a ; class of women who
do not have their " rights," simply
jbecause thoy will not- taVe thcml I
allude to girls and unmarried women
who have brains, industry, integrity,
and what U quite "I as essential in rub
- bing against the sharp corners of the
world, tact,' and yet lack the courage
and -common sensed to make too of
them. There is probably no sroDger
desire -and sorely none,, more credita
ble on the .part, of sensible women,
thaa tUe desire to earn the money they
spend; to feel that it is absolutely
their ownnot through the grace or
charity of friends, however dear and
uncxacting, but by virtue of acquisi
tion. Indulgent parents and kind hus
bands, of whom the world has many a
noble sample, are rarely apt to analyze
' the feelings of daughters and wives
who accept of their bounty as such j or
to estimate the demoralizing and debas
ing influence of the relations of bene
factor and beneficiary, which are so fre
quently established and perpetuated in
'f well regulated families." A youncf
irl once said to me, " I never ask my
father for money without a faintness of
heart and a reluctance of spirit which
is oppressive and painful in the ex
' treme." -
" And why is this?" I asked. "Is
your, father unwilling to give you
money when you ask for it V
" Oh, no; on the j contrary, he is too
willing, and always gives me more than
"Then why should you. hesitate to
ask him?' ''y'f '
Fecausc I do'not feci that I have
any right to his I money I never earn
anything; I am a continual expense to
iiim, not only for my living, but for the
ineansof education, of which he is en
tirely unsparing. I feel that I ought
to make eome; slight return ; that if the
-education which has been so freely be
stowed upon me is of any, earth ly-us,
it should have an earning quality, and
that I should ' have the benefit of it.
jBnt father is not willing I should work
for -wages. He says he is able to sup
port roe. and he prefers to do so. But
Oh 1 if he only knew how much hap
Ter it would make me to feci that at
3east a portion of the money I spend I
have honestly earned, I thiuk he would
I thought bo. too. and it was not long
before a way was opened for the reali
nation of the young lady's wishes. She
bad a talent lor music, wnicu nau vwu
developed by good teachers, and which
was found available for better purposes
than mere ornamental appendage, which
was the father's idea, and with the
consent of the father first reluctantly
given, and now exultantly conceded
the girl is independent and happy. Bho
feels no faintheartedness now in asking
her father for money, for she does not
atand in need of.hia bounty. She does
cot love him the less that he ha per
4 mitted her to enter upon hcr'rights,:
but all the moro ; and he is a happy
man in contemplating .the fact tha
should he ever be deprived of his
wealth or power to support his daugh
ter, she will be dependent on no strati
ger's bountV'y and may, even be able to
return to him a shae of what he has
so liberally -and with no snch thought
--bestowed upon her- .
Everybody knows that this is no iso
lated case, for everybody's personal ex
perience can furnish its duplicate many
dmea JretediTlieaet' tshrjre is no
woman of properCTrit w&o can afford
to be wholly dependent upon another
man or woman for the victuals ehe
eats, the clothe she wears, and the
money she spends ; and so I will say
what I aimed to say at the start -that
the reason why women so degrade
themselves in their own right is because
they have not the Oourage to do right.
It is a common but very foolish com
plaint on the part of women that they
have no chance in . competition with
men for clerkships, as book keepers,
&C The only reason why this is so, if
it is. is because they are not competent
to do the work; and i will not prepare
themselves. A young man usually earns
his clerkship by a three or four years'
Apprenticeship as shop-boy, runner, and
general utility work an apprenticeship
which is invaluable in its training qual
ities, and which no girl can be expected
to accomplish.. There are plenty of
positions, however, attainable by resi
pectable youngladies Vithout this se
vere ordeal, and requiring :' only the
prelimi n ary ed ucation j in accoun tan t
ship, and jet the comparatively small
number of -young ladies who will even
spend a few mon'hs to acquire this
necessary knowledge is astonishing.
Something .; more, than i a year ago, I
offered to educate for business fifty
women, of whatever age Or condition,
who should come well recommended,
and with the purpose to nso the know
ledge , they might: acquire in a proper
way Before makiug this offer, I called
on a number of business men, who
agjeed to employ1, in appropriate posi
tions, any well qualified woman I might
send them. This offer was published
extensively throughout I the country,
and was favorably commented upon by
editors everywhere, and" yet, although
I have kept the offer open to this time,
not, more than ten ladies have availed
them selves of the offer, and none of
these have had the courage or persist
ence to complete a course of instruc
tion, or to remain until qualified for a
It is very wrong to presume that
there is a prejudice, against employing
women in clerical positions. I know of
many excellent houses, in this city
where good female accountants would
be welcomed, and in not a few would
be preferred to males. But what is
wanted is absolute qualification for the
position, and a willingness to do the
duties. " 1
I learn that Peter Cooper is about to
extend his beneficence to cover the
preparation of women for clerical posi
tions. I trust he will do so, and that
some of those poor, starving needle
women, who are scarcely able to
keep body and soul together, may
be able to avail . themselves of his
kindness sufficiently to obtain more
suitable employment and better wages;
and then T trust that fathers who are
blessed with daughters having brains
and physical strength will ask them
selves what their heavenly gifts are
for, and govern themselves accordingly.

his appeal to Providence. He declared
when crowned at Koigsberg on the 18th
of Octobor, that he would rule only

out for the campaign in Bohemia, he
" entrusted" his cause to God ;" and
when, " by the ttisible: assistance of
God," he returned victorious to Benin,
he expressed " thanks for Gods's gra

lie concluded a speech on that occasion
by crying with uplifted hands, "May

; A RAILHOAl) SCENE.
Related by an Eye Witness.
While on a visit to the East in the
summer of 18G8, I chanced to pass
through the State of Pennsylvania, in
company with a lady friend.
;t3oon after j leaving illarrisburg, we
stopped ' at1 a way station, where a
couple from the rural -districts, who
had evidently never traveled $ mach,
stepped aboard the the cars, with the
avowed intention af going to the town of
0- " to get iphced' ' They were
Very affectionate towards each ether ta
their passage through the cars to pro
cure a seat i After they1 did find one,
the lady, in order to show her generos
ity, gave her a danced the whole seat,
and the sat down, very complacently, oa
his lap. To say there were many ex
pressions of merriment passed among
the passengers would ; be to tall far
short of the reality. In the height of
the merriment, I "passed to the forward
car to enjoy a smoke. While sitting
there enjoying my cigar; in a dreamy,
half-unconsciousness of what was pass
ing around me, the cars stopped at a
station, ;and five ruddy, athletic young
men, fresh from college, stepped into
the car. They wero on their way home
to spend vacation and came into the
smoking car, whore, they.could enjoy
thlmselves withont molestation. The
conductor came in when the train had
started, and, from the familiarity with
which they spoke to him when he
entered, and the ready flow of gossip
which immediately followed, one could
readily perceive that they - were old
friends. After talking a short time"
together, the conductor said, "Bovm,
there's a chance in the rear coach for
some fun. I don't wish to take any part
in it mnelf, but any uport you can
have, will be all legitimate." While
the boys were concocting their plaii.'
i finished my cigar, aud pnstMjd into the
coach, and took my scat with my
frtend. ' t
I told ; her what was brewing how
the sport was coming, of course I could
not. tell ;: but we were not kept long in
suspense. The seat which wo occupied
was on the opposite side of the car, and
a little in the rear of the one occupied
by jthe doomed couple. Presently, in
came a young man, whom J instantly
recognized as one of the perpetrators
of the mischief, with his hat set care
lessly on the back part of his head, and
a nonctalant air so often assumed
among strangers. As he passed along
the middle , of the car, he seemed to
notice no one, until he came opposite
the gentleman with the lady on his lap,
when he stopped suddenly, turned
round, put out his hand as if greeting
an old friend, and, with . a smile of
recognition, began, " Halloa, Jones,
my old boy, how are you ? Which way
are you going? How are the wife and
babies ? And where aret you taking
this girl ? Xot running oft with her,
are you: ' W litlc he was running on
with this tirade, not giving the rustic a
chance to reply, the lassie sat with her
eyes distended, and her mouth ajar, as
if she were perfectly nonplussed. As
soon as our rustic cot an opportunity.
he ejaculated, " You must be laboring
under a mistake, my name is not Jones,
my name is Harper." " Ah Jones,"
replied the other, That won't do, you
are pitying that pretty fine, but I pity
the young lady v And he passed on
and left them ; -.i ,' f
i As soon as he was gone, our rustic
settled the matter by explaining to his
companion the similarity sometimes
perceived between entire strangers, and
closed by : aaying, VtTnt the stranger,
probably took hini for some man
named Jones, whom he had known.
The young collegiate passed ' to the
rear of the car, and seated himself
where he could see all that transpired.
Soon another of the actors made his
appearance in the , doorway, and came
staggering along, as one is compelled to
do in trying to walk in a car running at
the rate of forty miles an hour, and as
he reached the scat which oor rural
couple occupied, he stopped and recog
nized the rustic the same as his prcde-'
cessor had done, and used nearly the
same language, with the additional re
mark, "That he was getting , too old
to be playing such tricks as that, and the
sooner he quit it the better."
The young lady became suspicious by
this time that perhaps there might bo
something wrong, and beginning to fear
that she was a victim of trickery, got
off the rustic's lap, and took a seat
beside him, and commenced talking to
him about the matter trying' to "get
some explanation to satisfy herself that
his name was Harper and not Jones.
But misfortunes never como single
handed. Before the unfortunate youth
had any time to reconcilo matters to
her satisfaction, in came another one of
the colleagues in mischief, and in pass
ing along, he, too, recognised our rustic
friend, and gave him nearly the same
greeting the others had given; With
an expression of conscious innocence
that coull not have been counterfeited,
the rustic tematked, "Well I must look
a darned rsight like that man Jones ;
yon are not;the first man who has called
me Jones 'to-day." Of course you
lock like him': replied the other,
" There are a dozen men aboard this
car that can i testify to that, and we
know yon are the man. You have been
flaying your tricks long cnongK on un
suspecting young ladies, and now we
E repose to stop it." Wito this remark,
e turned and left them. Whereupon,
the' lady, supposiag . fecrself the victim
of treachery, opened upon her compani
on a battery of language, more expres
sive than elegant ! Her indignation so
far got the , better of her -that she did not
giveLnira time to explain to her how
the parties might have bean mistaken
in their roan, and really thought his
name was ; Jones instead of Harper.
After she had finished her harangue,
and before the unfortunate rustic had
time tu make any conciliatory advances,
another of the partners in the mischief
advanced, and recognizing him as the
others had done, only added fuel to the
fire that was already raging. The un
fortunate victim of supposed misplaced
confidence, sprang to his feet, and took
another seat,asking the conductor, who
came in at that moment, to show her
the first return train, that she might
take it and return to her parents. The
scene whicV immediately followed this,
U almost Impossible, to describe on
paper., The injured awain jumped to
hi feet, stripped off his coat and vest,
detached his- neckerchief and , collar
threw them hot h-5pon the floor, jump
ed upon thereat ; which he and his'
would be bride had been occapying,
and, brandishing his arms in a threat
ening manner, swore he would wHp
any man who said that his name was
Jones. Thei oxcitement was intense
Passengers fj urn ped t to their feet, and
crowded round the belligerent to see
his movements, and hear his execrations
pronounced : against any man who said
hi name -was Jones. ' " His name was
Harper; he and this yonng woman
were i going to C - to be spliced.
His name, was Harper, and he would
whip any man that said it was Jones."
Just at this moment; in stepped an
other of hiVs tormentom'who stood
looking jn blank amazement for a mo
ment, aud then ejaculated, Why,
Jones, what the" d l's the matter
with you? What are you making such
a fuss about?" "This was too much for
the excited rustic ; he stopped in the
midst of ascntenfe, looked at his inter
locutor, and sunk sullenly into his seat.
Not a word was said by either of the
interested parties, until we reached the
station where we met the eastward
bound train, when the-, gentlemanly
conductor stepped in to escort the lady
to that tram. Her sulky companion
followed her, and the last sigh t we
caught of the unfortunato : victims of
circumstance, they were standing on
the platform of the car, ho trying to
persuade her that his name was llarpcjr,
and not Jones. We left them there,
and as we rolled away, I could but
reiterate the old saw . - ,

J udge Magrudcr, in the Circuit Court
of Clarert County, Maryland, has lately
dcllrered an important decision in the
easo of the State vs. Charles Watkins.
The case involved the right to registra
tion ot a colored man convicted of a
felony before the adoption of the Fif
teenth Amendment. The Judge decid
ed that all to convicted wore entitled to
vote, notwithstanding the provision ? of
the State Constitution, which provides
that no person above the age of 21 years,
convicted of larceny or other infamous
crime, unless pardoned by the , Govern
or, shall ever thereafter be entitled to
vote at any election in that State. The t
opinion was based upon the fact that
the disfranchisement was no part of the
punishment-of colored persons who ''had
no right to vote previous to tho adop
tion of the Fifteenth Amendment, to
impose that penalty now -would be to
give an ex post facto operation to a pro
vison of the State Constitution of the
United States; This is a formal recog
nition of the validity of the Constitu
