In the debate on the Prison bill on Sat
urday in the Assembly, an amendment was
adopted to the effect that convict labor
should not be Ist out to contractors for less
than one dollar a day. The new Constitu
tion provides that the contract system
shall cease in 18S3, but it would have
probably been wiser to abolish it immedi
ately, since it is vory doubtful whether any
advantageous arrangement* can be made
for so short a period. The fact that under
the new Constitution the State will have
to iind employment for the convicts does
not as yet appear to have suggested its
legitimate implications to the Legislature,
however. It involves the necessity of large
appropriations for machinery, and in the first
place it requires the thinking out of a com
plete system of employment, inasmuch as
the change of plans after machinery had been
purchased would result in great waste
of the public futds. But before such a
plan can be framed, these who undertake
it mustirealize the requirements' of the case
fully. Thus it would be a great mistake
to treat the matter solely from an
economic point of view, considering
only how best to secure the largest money
return on the outlay. The State has certain
■well defined obligations with regard to her
criminal class, and these obligations are
intimately connected with her material in
terests. Tiia central problem in all penal
legislation and systems must be the re
formation of the criminal. Without that
consideration all such legislation is merely
barbarous. To reform the criminal it is
first necessary that his habits should be
changed, and in tho next place ho must be
given the nr..ius to iwrn an honest liveli
hood. At this point one of the worst vices
of the contract system comes into view.
The labor of the convicts being let out to
contractors whose seilish interests alone
control them, there is no motive for teach
ing them trades, but each man is taught to
do some one thing, and if he learns to do it
well he is kept at that one detail all the
time. The result is that the prisoners do
not learn the trade, and that when they are
turned out again they are not able to earn
their own living. This fault the State
cannot afford to imitate. It must so ar
range its system of employment that every
convict shall have the opportunity of
learning a full trade, and this must
be made the most important con
sideration. It is not necessary
that convict labor should return
a profit in money to the State. That is a
very superlicial aud largely mistaken view
to take of it. What is required is that the
imprisonment of criminals shall be made
the means of their reclamation from vicious
habits, and that by giving them the skill
to earn an honest living they shall be ena
bled to begin a new life, and be itrengtb
encd to resist the temptations : l> it iorced
idleness too surely breeds. Is may not
pay the State in cash to do this, because
the necessity of so arranging the employ
ments that all may learn complete trades
is almost certain to diminish the produc
tive outcome. 15ut it will pay in restoring
criminals to society with new abilities and
orderly and wholesome habits, and this is
the true end and aim of all penal legislation.
We are of opinion that the Legislature
would have done well to anticipate the
changes made necessary by the new Con
stitution, aud that it might have laid
the foundations for the new system of em
ploying convict labor which will so soon
have to be introduced.
CONGRESS AND THS PRESIDENCY.
There are indications which suggest the
desirability of an early adjournment of
Congress. We refer to the rapidly-grow
ing tendency to begin the Presidential can
vass there. Already two or three mem
bers have been accused, and not without
reason, of making speeches the practical
purpose of which was to further some fa
vorite "boom," and it is evident that if
this practice once gains a foothold both
Houses will degenerate into a mob of
stump-speakere. The country is certain to
have enough of the Presidential campaign
in the natural course, and Congressmen
may therefore well spi»re a suffering public
the infliction of premature eulogies upon
" favorite sons," and so forth.

THE DEBRIS BILL.
The Senate Committee on Irrigation,
Water Rights and Drainage have reported
the debris bill back to the Senate favor
ably, recommending but one amendment,
and the bill has been made the order for
to-day on its second reading. The amend
ment proposed is to exempt lands which
are only benefited, but not reclaimed, from
the possible tax of S3 an acre. While
there may not be any reasonable ground
for opposition to this change in the bill, it
should be evident that any amendments
requiring its return to the Assembly, and
the concurrence of that body, are calcu
lated to delay and so endanger the meas
ure. If the Legislature has paid any
attention to this momentous question it
must by this time have realized the impor
tance of prompt remedial action regarding
it. Among the wild and reckless state
ments put forward by those who are fight
ing against all legislation on the subject
has betn the assertion that the expendi
ture of bo much money would injure the
party held responsible for the passage of
the pending bill. This suggestion is
utterly baseless and absurd. We do
not hesitate to say that the most dam
aging responsibility that could attach to the
dominant party in this connection would
be the responsi bility for having defeated the ■
measure of %-elief upon which the safety of
the entire Sacramento valley depends to
day. And we assert further that no party
burdened with such a responsibility could
hope to obtain the support of the wide
region now threatened with swift destruc
tion by the mining debris. Members will
do well to realize the significance of this
measure, therefore, in more wiyfl than
one, and if there are any who care more
for the political consequeuce3 of their votes
than for the principles involved, they may
as well understand that the denial of jus
tice and relief would not be regarded by
the victims as a light matter, but that it
would certainly color and mold their po
litical action in the future. As to the
amount of the expenditure called for, it is
a bagatelle to the extent of the in
terests which are threatened. With
what prospect of success could poli
ticians approach the people in the
coming campaign, aud tell them that to
secure a few hundred thousand dollars they
had refused to interfere between the entire
Sacramento valley and ruin ? The ques
tion of expense is in truth irrelevant, for
the case is one in which the need of relief i 3
imperative, and no matter what it costs it
will have to be extended. Should this
Legislature fail to do its duty in the mat
ter, the next one will be called on for a
heavier appropriation, for the evil is cumu
lative, aud every year of inaction makes it
harder to recover. And thus the only re
sult of delay can be to repeat the legend
of the Cumu'an Sybil, and to compel
the State to pay more, with less prospect
of recouping tiie outlay.
This -valley must be saved. The people
who have built up Sacramento and Marys
ville, who have made their homes and
reared thoir children on the plains between
the mountains and the sea, will not con
sent to be abandoned to destruction. The
question which has hitherto occupied so
small a space in men's minds will grow to
the front rank among State issues if it is
not dealt with now, and politicians will
find that reputations and careers are de
pendent upon the positions taken in regard
to it. There is no excuse for procrastina
tion. The subject has been fully discussed.
The nature and extentof the evil to be cured
are known to all who care to inquire. It
has been demonstrated that delay is full of
danger ; that it is unjust and inexpedient ;
that it involves the certain destruction
of valuable property ; that it must make
the solution of the problem more difficult :
that it is contrary to reason and
common sense. The Senate therefore is
under obligations to take this measure up
and to deal with it in a statesmanlike
spirit. It is now the only chance that re
mains of getting anything done this year,
and experience has shown that it is not
safe to wait another tvelvemonth before
haginning operations. The objections
which have Luen raised to the bill are all
frivolous, petty, prompted by blind selfish
ness or stupid jealousy. There are some
men so mean that they would rather forego
a personal benefit than accept it on the con
dition that it should be shared with their
neighbors ; and not a few of this kind have
appeared among the opponents of the
Young bill. Lawmakers, however, are
bound to look above these sordid and ma
licious objections, and should base their
action upon an enlightened recognition of
the public requirements. There can be no
question as to the urgency of this issue. It
is to-day the overshadowing question, and
the longer it is neglected the weightier
will it become. The Republican party
has now an opportunity to make a fair rec
ord for itself by doing what is demanded
by the people. There need be no fear as
to the justiiieation for the bill. The bill
is its own best defense and vindication.
Before two years have passed it will have
added to the taxable area of the State
lands more than capab'.e of paying; every
cent of the outlay, and it will at the same
time have Liven stability and enhanced
value to every acre in the valley. There
can be no excuse for failure to enact it into
law, but those who vote for it, and the
party accountable for its passage, ■will have
abundant reason to congratulate them
selves upon their performance of a duty
which is also a benefaction. We trust that
the bill will pass the Senate with few or
no changes, and that it will be placed in
the hands of the Governor in ample time
to receive his signature.
WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT.
The public have been gravely informed
that John Swinton of New York has
seen proper to decline a nomination for the
Presidency of the United States, tendered
him by Denis Kearney of San Francisco,
and Jialf a dozen Socialists of St. Louis,
Chicago, Cincinnati and Detroit, on the
ground that lie wa3 not born in this coun
try. This is perhaps the first time Mr.
John Swinton and his peculiar friends have
thought it necessary to pay any respect to
that effete instrument, the Constitution of
the United States, and we confess that the
incident surprises us. It would have been
just as easy for Mr. Swinton to declare
that he proposed to abolish the obnoxious
provision, and to have accepted the nomi
nation and made the isssue squarely, and in
that case there would have been an element
of fun added to the campaign which we now
fear it will lack. Mr. John Swinton is
not well known to the people, but he is
greatly admired by that celebrated patriot
and reformer, Mr. Justus Schwab, and his
harangues at Union and Tompkins Square
have for several years been looked upon aa
models of communistic eloquence by the
foreign and heterochite element which fills
Mr. Schwab's beer cellar and consumes his
Limburger and pretzels. Mr. Swinton
must feel proud of the offer which has been
made him, and especially proud of the
homage paid him by that noble enthusiast
Denis Kearney. Such epochal events it ia
given to few men to experience, and the
number of men fitted by nature to ap
preciate and tnjoy them is — shall we
venture to say fortunately? — small.
A DARK CONSPIRACY.
We certainly should not have- been in
clined to su3t>ect that staid and conserva
tive citizen, Assemblyman Mclntosh, of
San Joaquin, of a desire to plot against the
community at present honored by his
residence, and yet we can only view the
bill he introduced on Saturday as the de
velopment of a dark conspiracy. The bill
provides, as described in our legislative re
port, " that no action shall be brought by
" any hotel or lodging-house-keeper to re
" cover anything of value in payment of
"indebtedness for the necessaries of life
" from any member of the Legislature in
"curred after the time for which they
" shall receive pay expires." It is at once
apparent that Mr. Mclntosh seek 3to im
pose upon the people of Sacramento the en
tire burden of an extra session. This is
special legislation, it is unconstitutional,
and it is malicious. What have the hotel
and boarding-house keepers of Sacramento
done to Mr. Mclntosh, ttiat he should thus
endeavor to compel them to support the
Legislature indefinitely ? And what guar
antee is he prepared to give that the Legis
lature would over adjourn if it were thus
provided with free board? Unless, indeed,
the accepted meaning of the "necessaries
of life" were* held to exclude whisky, it is
very certain that the passage of this bill
would fasten the bulk of the Legislature
upon our hotels in permanence, and this
would be an infliction against which not
only the hotel and boarding-house keepers,
but the whole community, would ju3tly
protest. We are really surprised at Mr.
THE SEA FIGHT AT ARICA.
The war between Chile and Peru lias
afforded some instructive episodes in naval
attack and defense. 'The last example
given is the forcing of the blockade of
Arica by the corvette Union, which vessel
is said to have maintained a seven hours'
combat witli the Huascar and another
Chilean ironclad, and iinally, after dis
charging the whole of her cargo of arms
and ammunition during the fight, to have
beaten them off. It is suggested that the
Union must have been assisted by the
monitor Manco Capac, and by the shore
batteries, and probably this was the case,
but in any event the result of the action
would seem to show that the Huascar and
her armed consort are not capable of
maintaining themselves even agaiust
an unarmored antagonist provided with
heavier guns than their own. Of
course in the absence of details we cannot
say what amount of assistance the Peruvian
monitor rendered during the engagement,
but it is evident from the general tenor of
the dispatch that the weight of the action
lay upon the Union, and that it is regarded
as her victory. The actual capabilities of
most of the armored ships of the period are
so doubtful, owing to tlio absence of oppor
tunities to test them practically, that the
slightest illustration of relative fighting
powers is welcome and valuable. .So far
the South American war appears to lead
toward the conclusit>n that too much reli
ance has been placed upon armor hitherto,
and that the really vital question is one of
THE STATE UNIVERSITY.
Reply to the Criticism of the College of
Eds. Recoud-Uxiox : It isa pity that those
who undertake to enlighten the public concern
ins the University do not first make themselves
throughly acquainted with the institution.
Nearly the only answer the friends of the in
stitution have hitherto made to adverse criti
cism has been the invitation "to come and
see." Those who have accepted this invita
tion, and have examined for themselves, have
been more than satisfied. These reflections
have been suggested by an article lately pub
lished in a San Francisco journal. We do
not intend making any elaborate defense of
the University, but desire to correct two
errors, which stem to be widespread.
1. he writer states that four or five years
ago the number of students was 250 ; now,
only 150. The natural inference from this
statement is, that about 1875 the number of
students reached the highest point, and has
declined steadily ever since. Now, inspec
tion ot the register shows that in 1875 the
number of students was 231 ; in IS7G, 310 ;
in 1877, 305 ; in 1878, 318 ; in 1879, 332.
The register for 1880 is not yet out, but: we
learn by inquiry that the number is 207.
These figures give the actual number in con
nection with the University during the
session. The number in actual attendance at
any one moment is less by about 40 or 50,
the others being mostly on leave of absence,
for various reasons. It is seen, then, that so
far as numbers may be taken as an evidence
of success, the University culminated in 1879,
during the administration of its present
head. Surely the causes of the decline dur
ing the present year are obvious enough
without charging it to mismanagement. We
would only mention hard times, elevation of
the standard of admission, and loss by dis
cipline, as among them. .
2t The writer says the Agricultural
College is a myth— that it is not a college at all,
but only a department. Is there anything
peculiar about the status of the Agricultural
College in this respect? Chemistry is a de
partment. Is the College of Chemistry there
fore a myth ? " Classics and English literature
are departments. Is the College of Letters
therefore a myth? Mining, mechanic arts
and engineering are each departments. Are
the Colleges of Mining, Mechanic Arts and
Engineering therefore myths? They all stand
on the same footing in this respect. There
seems to be some perverse misunderstanding
here. Agriculture is a department, it is true,
but it is the central department around which
all the other departments of this college clus
ter and to which they are subsidiary. Classics
also is a department, bit it is the central de-«
partment of a group of subsidiary depart
ments ; and bo of all the other colleges. A
reference again to the register shows that the
Agricultural College, besides its character
istic department of agriculture, consists also
of the departments of geology, natural his
tory, chemistry, physics, engineering and
surveying and mathematics, and that the
students in this college are instructed also in
English literature, history and modern lan
guages. Are not all these absolutely neces
sary for a graduate in an Agricultural Col
lege, if agriculture is ever to be regarded as a
liberal profession and not a routine trade I
There is but one tenable ground of criticism
on all the technical colleges. It is that the
strictly practical or technical part is not suf
ficiently prominent. •■ None are more willing
to acknowledge this than the friends of
the University. But how is this to be rem
edied? Surely not by emasculating the
general ' scientific and literary culture, for
this forms the very basis of all scientific agri
culture, and of all high and influential posi
tion in society. To destroy the completeness
of th«" general course, in order to increase the
time devoted to technics, would be at once to
degtade these colleges to trade schools, and to
degrade these professions below the level of
liberal professions. The only method of meet
ing this want is the addition of post-graduate
courses, and additional means for carrying
As to the small number of students in tbe
Agricultural College, aa com pared with some
others, the cause of this does not lie in the
college itself, for it i« certainly conducted
with eminent ability, but outride of the col
lege. It is because each individual farmer
desires his own son, or his son himself desire?,
to follow some other profession. There are
many reasons frr this. One is the sad fact
that agriculture as a calling is not appreciated
as it oueht. to be. Another reason is that
agricultural knowledge has no value in the
market as expert knowledge. One must have
the capital as well a> the knowledge in order
to make any use of it. It is not paid for by
capitalists in the same way as expert knowl
edge in other departments. XXX.

The Severance Hjslrry in Whutm Connly.
S&H I-'hascisco, April Oth.— The mysteri
ous disappearance of C. P. Severance, who
for over cix years has resided on the Throck
morton ranch, in Maria county, .»ix miles
from Saucelito, is reported. The missing man
ai;d his Chinese cook were the sole occupants
of the ranoheria. Mr. Severance on Thurs
day and Friday had been making the ntual
monthly collections, which averaged §1,500.
On Friday night he stopped at a house two
miles out of Saucelito, on his way home, and
since then has not been «een by a living soul
other than his cook. This Chinaman, who is
in jail at Saucelito, says that the miaging
man got home at dusk, ate his supper and
went to bed. In the morning the Chinaman
entered Mr. Severance's room, but he was
not there, nor could he be found anywhere.
The Chinaman theu started for Saucelito to
come to this city to give Mr. Throckmorton
the news, but missed the boat and was ar
rested. The disappearance was first reported
by a neighbor, who on Saturday evening
found the Throckmorton cows iv great dis
tress, not having been milked. The well on
the premises has been sounded. Something
has been felt at the bottom which may prove
to be the body of the missing man. Detect
ives from this city and bloodhounds from S.m
Queutiu have been Kent to the ranch to dis
cover tracts of Severance. Mr. Severance's
father does uot believe that his assassins, if
such there be, obtained any money, as his son
told him that he always planted his money
before he came home. The impression pre
vails iv Saucelito that Mr. Severance has
AH LUSO'S STORY— OTHER ARRESTS.
Saucelito, A pril sth. —Ah Lung was brought
to the ranch this morning, aud when pressed
told an entirely different story from his first
narration, saying that on Friday, during Mr.
Severance's absence, he had been visited by a
Portuguese named Antoue, who lived a short
distance from the house, and asked to associ
ate with him in a scheme to rob and murder
his master. To this proposition Ah Lung
had replied: " Mr. Severance good man ; me
likee him ; no want to kill him ; 'spose we
kill him, Mr. Throckmorton find out and
make me heap trouble." To this Antone had
responded by saying that he would give him
*000 if he would join with him in committing
the deed; that he need uot be afraid of dis
covery, as he had been troubled by Severance
long enough, and would bury him where no
bo(iy could find him. After threatening the
Chinaman with his vengeance if he divulged
the terrible secret, the Portuguese de
parted, and Ah Lung saw his master no
more. That evening he went to bed sick,
and after hearing four or five gunshots out
side was visited in his room by Antone, who
handed him £220 and told him that he
would give him the remainder of the SOOO iv
a few days. The only explanation of Antone's
anger is a difficulty which occurred between
him aud Severance fome two years ago, in
consequence of his shooting a valuable dog
belonging to the latter.
Antone, who was arrested today, is not at
all ferocious of aspect. He laughs at the
Chinaman's story, and denie* all connection
with the deed. He says that he saw lights in
Severance's house about 8 o'clock on Friday
evening, and also saw him feeding his calves.
Two or three other Portuguese living near by
assert their willingness to swear that they saw
lights in the house as late as S o'clock.
Ah Wy, a Chinese cook in the employ of
Mrs. Dr. dishing, whose place id not far
from that of Severance, was airesttd to-day,
in consequence of his Suspicious haute to go
to San Francisco.
Ah Lung has as yet been unable to find the
?220 which he said he had hidden in Suuce
. The only evidences which account in any
way for the mode of Mr. Severance* death
are a bloody ax found near the hen-house,
which the Chinaman says he used for chop
ping off the* heads of fowl--, and a heap of
ashes beneath the wood in an old-fashioned
fireplace in the sitting-room, which suggests
the possibility of the missing man's crema
tion. A host of conflicting theories are ad
vanced by the excited inhabitants of this
burgh, but while the affair is still enshrouded
in the densest mystery, it is likely that some
intensely interesting developments will be

Portland, April s:h. — Both political par
ties in this State are making active prepara
tions for the approaching campaign.
The l^jiiocratic State Convention will
meet at Albany on the 7th inst. A number
of delegates are now in the city en route to
that place. Comment on presidential candi
dates is rife, and a Field boom is being
worked up ; but the delegates to the Natioual
Convention will probably go nninstructed.
It is difficult to tell which is the favorite
among the Oregon Democrats, Tilden, Bay
aill. Seymour or Field. It is reported that
Whiteaker, the present Congressman, will
decline rtrnomination. If he does, there will
be a squabble for the place, though it is sai 1
he will be forced to accept. He in probably
as strong a man as his party could rue in the
The Republican State Convention meets in
Portland April 21st. Among its prominent
candidates for Congress are Hon. 11. Mallory,
United States District Attorney, and State
Senator M. C. George. Either would till the
place ably, but Mallory would mr>ke a more
vigorous and telling campaign. Inasmuch as
no United States Senator is to be elected by
the next Legislature, the contest for seats in
that body will not be n warm, except in
counties where State Senators are to be
chosen, who will hold over till 18S2, when a
successor to Senator Grover will be elected.
The Democratic party is not harmonious,
there being two well-defined factions in
almost every county, one faction favoring
< rovernor Thayer ami the present State ad
ministration, the other opposing and adhering
to the fortunes of the present Senator and
late Governor, L. F. Grover. The Thayer
party is believed to have a majority of dele
gates to the State Convention, but it is
doubtful if they can rely upon the rank and
file of the party to indorse all they dn.
Some rumors are niloat that if Whiteaker
persists in declining, the Democrats will
nominate ex-Senator Nesmith for Congress,
but he states that under no circumstances
will he be a candidate.
The Republicans are sanguine that they
can carry the State for Congress in June and
for President in November, if the Chicago
Convention nominates Blame, Washbnrne,
Edmunds or any other of the prominent
candidates except Grant. From all indica
tions it is safe to predict a hotly contested
election in Oregon, both in June aud Novem

KATE HEVTH TALKS ABOUT GOINQ TO
HEAVEN, SINGING AND EASIER.
The . Story of a Skipped Husband— A No
torious Woman, and Twenty
San Fuancisco, March 31, ISSO.
The glories of Easter still overwhelm
the. I jet seem prostrated before the
crosses and the crowns of flowers, and the
singing I heard seems yet ringing iv my
ears. Never saw I such a wealth of the
pure in decoration as at Grace Cathedral :
lilies and ferns wound up the pillars,
arches beut over the aisles, and the altar
lay among blossoms and vines. The sweet
est of voices stole out somewhere from
among it all, and into my heart crept the
calm of the church. And then I went
away down to Trinity, and there again
was Easter, and the voice singing just like
the one I shall liave in the great heaven to
sing my happiness in. That is a sweet
thought of heaven : To be able to sing all
joy and all love like a bird. Just now,
once and again, the thought is all right,
and the great longing to s-ing is there, and
tiie song wells op to the lips, but ah ! God
keeps the voice for heaven. But it is
pleasant to think some time I shall find
that voice, and with it I shall make the
melodies of my soul sweeter thau the
sounds of h:ir]is together. I knew an old
woman once who could not .sin.; a note,
she could not even murmur a lullaby over
her children, and it was the cross she had
to carry in this world. When she was at
home they were a large family of girls,
Except herself. "When they were alone,
sometimes in the middle of the chorus
there stole in a harsh undertone, and they
knew it was Jane trying to sing. In her
desperation she learned the words of every
hjnin, and there she would stand saying
them over with her lij>^, and once in the
while startling the air with that harsh,
grating attempt at the tune. And yet
that woman iv her soul has the, sweetest
song that a woman ever sung. It was
Mrs. Tippett singing at Trinity, the bell
in her tone, as usual, clear and firm, ring
ing and swinging like the echoes of a
chime. One of our high-priced dentists
has lately brought suit against Mrs. Tip
pett, and it transpires that he presented to
her a bill of nearly §1,000 for dentistry.
It seems enormous, and at that rate one
could better afford false teeth and done
with it. Down at Calvary there was
little decoration and it seemed like
home singing when the congregation
joined heartily into Fleyal's hymn.
A couple of little girls just behind me
piped iv shrilly, and an old woman's
quaver came from somewhere. The con
gregation swept along like a wave after
the choir, half a beat behind time,
and yet, with all the voices that never were
strung to tune with each other, it seemed,
somehow, like the right sort of singing.
The soprano was a thin, spirituelle woman,
and I loved to watch her face as she sang,
which I could easily do, as the choir at
Calvary stand in full view. She is Mrs.
Cowan, or, as she is better known to all
Mills' Seminary girls, Safa Tate. There
are two other girls of the same seminary
whose voices 1 remember- — that of Miss
Ella, daughter of Dr. Glenn, and a tall,
darked, auburn-haired young lady from
San Jose, whose name escapes me just
now, but whose singing was supnagniticent
that it rolls through my memory yet. It
is worth while to hear the singing of
A CHOEI S
Of boys at St. Albans, their young voices
seem so worshipful and fresh, and they have
a plaintive note as well. There is a Welsh
congregation here which one who loves to
wander about might delight to visit. A
strange air seems to float about when that
odd, unknown language begins, and one
looks at this face and that, to see if any
one really understands these words so dis
tant from our every-day conversation. It
is like a gleam from foreign Wales to sit
there and listen. At the Fir3t Congrega
tional Church in the evening there was
the usual Easter praise service. It is a
very large and handsome church, with a
spreading gallery, and an arched and
trtscocd roof that opens away to a lofty
bight. There was a vast congregation in
attendance ; people kept coming and com
ing, and finally every seat was full, even
way back into the farthest niche of the
gallery. Then what a sight it was to
glance along the tossing sea of heads, to
hear the whispers that ran like a sigh
through the pews, and finally to listen toths
tirat drone of the organ. liUe the roll and
tattoo of a drum confined, ere it burst into
its full tide of sound. Around the Bible
desk was a row of the heavily-fragrant
China lilies, and above it lay thick clusters
of the pink, feathery blossoms of the wild
currant. Below and in front of the desk
what looked like three large llowera proved
to be made of lone, tongue-shaped red
leaves laid together lily form and sent in
by Mrs. Stone. The flowers at this church
are always arranged by Mrs. Marble, who
is a sister to Mrs. Blame, the candidate
for lady of the White House, and cousin
to the stormy (Jail. Mrs. Stetson, the
modest contralto of the choir, sang the of
fertory, accompanied by the French horn,
and she always looks so good, so whole
souled, such a mother woman. The great
attraction of the evening, however, was
By Miss Annis Montague, whom you have
lately heard in Sacramento, and through
that great church her voice swelled so rich
that it seemed as if it rose upon the ear.
Miss Montague is an encouragement to am
bitious girls. I have a letter written me
long ago by a schoolmate who desired to
make something of herself in singing. One
passage of the letter reads: "Oh! Kate,
if I could only do something, make some
thing of myself ! I feel every day hoY I
waste my time, and I hate myself because
I do no compel opportunity. See my
friend Mary Cook ! She is in Europe, hav
ing finished her musical course, has had a
trial, been pronounced a success, and will
now commence the career she has earned."
The longing in this passage may perhaps
iind an echo where my letter reaches.
Miss Mary Cook came from the Sandwich
Islands, of good, staunch, missionary
stock, who looked upon the stage with
horror. Beaching San Francisco, she was
received by church people, visiting at
the house of Deacon Benchley on
California street, and pleasing all who
heard her singing. It is there I next hear
of her singing duets with another friend.
Her aspirations, in spite of her family, were
already turned toward a professional ca
reer, and her decision was finally made, in
the face of strenuous opposition, to go to
Europe and study music. And yet where
was the money to come from ? Assuming
the name of Annis Montague, two family
names, she borrowed means from an uncle,
whom she found willing, went to Europe,
studied hard, made a debut, succeeded,
and now returns to America, ready to work
harder than ever. Her family have been
compelled to admire the firmness and
wealth of character she has displayed, and
are probably not ashamed that this operatic
branch should have sprung from the mis
sionary tree. Miss Montague, after she
has canceled the debt to her uncle, will
probably marry Mr. Turner. At present
she is visiting the family of Mr. Severance,
Consul for the Hawaiian Kingdom. Wnen
she had finished her solo on Sunday night,
there was a hush, and then a little mur
mur of repressed applause, and then the
usual decorous church quiet.
THE ROSY OF A SKIPPED HCSBAND.
Indirectly connected with the people of
this same cfcurch is another woman of op
posite character, a Mr 3. Sargent, of Spanish
blood, who is now in New York attempt
ing to engineer into that city those "in
dustrious little brown men," the Chinese.
She gives a wonderful report of herself to
the papers there. She married a duke,
she has had twenty children, she was the
intimate friend and correspondent of the
Prince of Wale 3, and she finally married
Timothy Sargent, a wealthy man of San
Francisco. She boasts that her twenty
children were no trouble to her, and I can
well imagine it when seventeen of them
are dead and there ire but three living to
tell the tale. In her account of husbands
she skips one, the son of a San Francisco
minister. There was not one of us but
knew Ned— a wild, frank, free and gen
erous boy, the pride and solicitude of his
parents and the admiration of many pairs
of bright eyes. Many rhymes have been
tiung abroad in praise of "women, wine
and song," and many more yet tangle
themselves in the brains of just such boys.
This boy was no exception and his friends
trembled as well they might. But there
i 3 this good thing about him : He fell
honestly in love with a woman and married
her, with a nobility of intention ami a
straightforwardness and openness that was
grievously touching. But, alas ! the worn- I
an was unworthy. She had-taken a boy
and fascinated him, and woven her toils !
about him and married him with a pur
pose. She thought his family would be
compelled to acknowledge her, and that
she would follow them into society. She
brought him on the Sunday morning fol
lowing their wedding into church, under
the shadow of his own father's pulpit, and
a rustle of indignation went up through
the congregation at this outrageous brava
do. In a lace shawl aud a silk dress with a
long train, and with her eyes modestly
cast down, she swept by me up the aisle, a
handsome woman, many years older than
the boy husband, whose blue eyes shone
with pride as he walke.l by her side. The
father in the pulpit looked ready to sink
with shame, and his voice shook with emo
tion as he rose to read the hymn ; but the
son looked round so proud to have married
this magnificent woman, who had cast
such a glamour round herself that she
seemed to him the best and truest woman
in the world.
i iu:v nkvi:i; i amk
To church again. Sl;e was not received by
the church, the family or society, and in six
weeks' time she contemptuously tossed out
of her arms the boy she had gathered into
them, and someone else saw tit to marry
her by andjby. Overcome with mortifica
tion, the boy she had fooled went down to
Texas and stayed two years, pulling up
courage to face the world again, and after
malaria had seized him he returned home,
But he had passed through the tir ry furnace:
the trial had purified ; liisold, wild, dissipated
ways were shaken off and lie was ready to
be a man. Alas ! the seeds of the malaria
planted in his system soon sprung into new
lrfe, and we had hardly greeted him until
he was dead — repentant, sad and sorry ere
he died. People laugh and shake their
heads merrily when they say, " boys will
be boys," but there never yet was a night
of dissipation but scored one on the char
And this is the story, as it was read to
me at the time, of the skipped husband.
