M. Campbcll'si Lecture to the Ladle.
Rcr. A. 31. Campbell's sermon or lecture
to the ladies, Sunday evening, called oul a
very large audience. So large, indeed, that
many had to go away for want of room,
while a large crowd remained at the door
and about the windows of the building.
The speaker, not very robust physically at
I .t. ... - ! , t--V.l
anv nun-, aa i.ir umier nirt usual pngui
last night, and did not do himself jiutice,
although the audience was quite entertained
and, we trust, benefitted. The doctrine of
spiritual atlinity and natural selection, as a
curse to the domestic relation, was properly
and ably discussed and condemned. Inger
sollVt advice toparentsto correct tlisir children
with caresses rather than corporal punish
ment, was criticised and rejected as hetero
dox, the Bible having announced that to
spare the rod would spoil the child. The
suspicion that the minister has more than
one reason to dislike Ingcrsoll, and there
fore to disagree with him in all his conclu
sions and deductions is entirely gratuitous
with us, and of course he is not responsible
for our surmises, but Ingcrsoll hivs had too
much to say in a political way to be popu
lar with all classes, even if he were perfectly
orthodox ia his religious belief.
The assumption that this is a particularly
corrupt epoch in the history of the United
States, aud that men in "high places are
worse than formerly, in proportion to the
increase in population ip, as wn believe,
erroneous and not sustained by the facts.
We do not attribute to tho prVachcr any
willful distortion of the truths of history;
on the contrary, wc believe him to be per
fectly sincere, earnest and honest in every
thought aud every utterance, but there is
such a thing as an unconcious leaning in
the direction of traditional nreiudicca and
, exploded theories that time alone can thor
ough! v eradicate, and perhaps suflicient time
has not yet elapsed to allow unbiased reason
to assume control even of honest laborers in
the cause of Christianity. Again, it uas
assumed that modern politics are of such a
degrading na'nrc, that if ladies should go to
the ballot-box and vote, they too would be
come degraded. This is a question about
which m-inv able, so-called, moral refonn-
I er disagree. Some contending that the
presence oi reiincd women would tend to
purify elections aud elevate the elective
franchise. All thinkiug people agree that,
abstractly, every person who is governed
and taxed should have a voic in saying
i 1 1 r distil ifivnrn tltnfii nti.l Its-inr mfrri 111(1
II iVS ailiali VllVitl ill, til tntjtl IVril iWUi l
for what inirnois taxes ahall bt; collected.
There is a growing inclination among the
best thinkers to establish an intelligent
qualification to the use of the franchise, and
I but lor the ditiiculty ot determining prc
i ciscly where ignorance ends and intelligcnc
j begiiiti, such a test would no doubt be ap
plied; but there M'cms to be no reasonauic
grounds for excluding intelligent people
from the exercise of this right on account
of age. sex. color or previous condition.
Ladies, from policy or modesty, need not
exercise the right unless they feel interested
; enough m what thev mav believe to be the
j cause of good government to overcome their
scruples, nut to deny them the rignt to rcp
' resent their property and persons at the
ballot-box, if they so desire, is to violate a
natural law, the law of an equality of legal
rights to every human being born into the
It is not our purpose or desire to advo
cato the cause of woman .suffrage, ia theac
columns, until such time as the women
themselves mav desire to avail themselves
i of it; but that it would degrade their wo
j manhood, we believe to be a mistake. "We
( see ladies of the purest and most exalted
character mingling freely with men at
church, at balls ami parties, at fairs and
festivals, May parties and -1 tit of July cele
brations, etc?, taking an active and impor
tant part in the management, and yet never
heard that they were any the worse for it,
and why should they become demoralized
by simply going to the polls and depositing
a ballot that represents their honest convic
tions in a matter that so deeply concerns
His "Moral Millinery" was a very clever
conceit in which all the Christian graces
were cut scant, and some of them so bias as
to fit some people rather awkwardly; but
pride, extravagance, etc., were dealt out in
such liberal measure as to constitute the
wearer "loud, ovcr-drcssed, vulgar and
offensive.' The speaker as he proceeded
with these aphorisms, which he used as
short texts, made some telling applications.
Although the lecture was to the women, he
did not spare them, but pointed out their
faults as well as theirvirtues and privileges.
He plainly told them that many of their
hands were red with murder, in offering
wine to young men who could not resist
the temptation to drink when it was offered
by the hand of beauty, and that often and
often the first draught that led a victim to a
drunkard's grave was proffered by woman.
Take the lecture all in all it was a suc
cess, although not equal to his usual efforts
when in better physical condition. Of
course we have no objection to his indul
ging in criticism of a political nature; wc
hold that a man's protession or business is
no bar to his being a politician; in fact, it
is the duty of every Christian minister to
strike at sin where ever it shows its head,
aud if he thinks he sees it in politics, he
ought to hit it a lick, but he i-hould be sure
aud not strike the wrong head.
It is thought that Gen. Crook, the Indian
lighter, will be ordered to Idaho for the
purpose of directing the war now being
waged against the whites by Joseph and
his picrccd-uoscd followers.

importance in reference to the future price
of silver. Tho Marquis of Salisbury, Sec
retary of State for India, has been empow
ered to raise JCj,000,000 for the Indian de
ficit, of which one-half is to be ndded to the
funded debt of India, and the rent to be
raised by Treasury bills. But the Govern
ment accepts! the power with the distinct
understanding that Treasury bills shall be
used only when Indian bills, which, for all
practical purposes, arc equivalent to silver,
cannot be sold, and it is hoped that the dis
cretionary power to use Treasury bills when
salca of silver wold only break down the
price, mav help to steadv the market. Lord
Hamilton, Under-Secretary for India, stated
in the House of Commons, on the 21st ult.,
that the Government accepted this lat'er
power on the distinct understanding that
it should only be used when they could not
nossiblv sell their bills. Hy that means, on
the one hand, be able to keep silver steadv,
and on the other hand they would not add
to the permanent Indian debt in that coun
try. He pointed out that bills sold there
by the Iudian Government for all practical
purposes might be regarded as silver. The
v i . r. -i -e
itmian uoverumeui were in mis unioriu-
nate position. If thev forced their silver
upon the market when there was no demand
for it they reduced the price of silver, and
gave rise to uuctuations which were most
injurious to the Eastern trade, and if they
borrowed money m that country thev onlv
put off the evil day. It has therefore been
suggested that they should issue Treasury
lulls renewable irom time to time. Appa
rently a considerable causa of the recent
Uuctuations in silver may be reduced hy
The coinage reports from all the mints
except (arson City state the aggregate
coinage for the hscal year at uUU.UUO,
showing an increase over the last fiiscal vear
of $14,000,000. Congress will he asked to
increase the funds for coinage operations so
the amount will approximate $1)0,000,000.
The total amount of coin in the country is
not less than $225,000,000. an increase du
ring the iiscat year ot ?40,uuu,uuo. The ex
ports of gold and silver have been about
equal during the year; being as follows for
Imports $39,'223,:; 14 $M,83,3.S7
Exports -iy,-ISo,:,00 rjO,'i'i3,S60
The silver issued up to date is $.'13,000,000,
of which '21,000,000 was for redemption of
fractional currency, and the balance for cur
rency obligations. As the balance of trade
is becoming more pronounced in favor of
the United States, it is believed that the ac
cumulation of specie in this country will
continue at a more rapid rate than hereto
fore, so that when the time of resumption
comes round there will be an abundance of
the precious metal in the United States.
The New York Shipping and Commercial
List of the 23d ult., says: "The proposition
for a uniform system of coinage throughout
the world, so that coins ot one nation may
circulate in any other without the expense of
rccomage, has met with so much favor
among men with enlightened ideas that it
is likely to be adopted eventually. The fact
that the large amount of gold which has
been thrown into the monetary circulation
of the world within the last thirty years, has
exercised so little influence upon the money
market, or prices generally, is at variance
with the predictions of financial writers up
on both sides of the Atlantic. The increase
in the production of gold as compared with
former periods is enormous; ami the price of
it has not declined, although the annual
product has mereased nearly two fold with

I-hiiTOi: Miner: Tucson is at present
rapidly recovering from her severe attack of
small-nox. by which she lost so many of
her citizens. The town is improving con
siderably. A 3Ir. Trainor, late of San
Diego, and who now occupied Leather
wood's old corral, is making very extensive
improvements in the way of stalls, carriage
houses, etc. He has, without exception, the
finest stock of carriages, coupes, clarauccs,
and phictons in the Territory, and with
about seventy head of fine carriage-hordes,
is prepared to furnish elegant turnouts fur
any and all occasions. Business in general
seems to be in a very healthy condition,
notwithstanding the complaint of hard
times. The spacious stores of Lord & Wil
liams, Jacobs fc Co., and E. Lowcnstein &
Co. are all doing a good business. We no
tice a considerable qnantity of Soguarra
fruit brought in by the Indians for sale,
which ia really delicious, closely resembling
the iig. The weather for the past week litis
been exceptionally warm, and the nights
almost too much for comfort. A Mr. Col
ton, of of our city, lost his watch in a very
mysterious manner, on the ICth inst., and
now offers a a large reward for its recovery
and the particulars of its disappearance.

"From the high vantage ground f the

with its untried possibilities. The past at
least is secure beyond the change of tim or
the chance of fate. What would the his
tory of the century be, with the United
Stales left out ? What would the outlook
of humanity be, if there were no United
States of America? The beginning of a
new century suggests some reflections. Our
nation is no longer a parvenu. We cannot
plead the "Jaby Act," or attribute indis
cretions to the ebuilliencc of youth. We
have attained our majority, and arc entitled
to sit as an equal with the ciders at the
council board of empire. Manhood brings
new duties and responsibilities, which.de
mand independence of thought and self
reliance of character. We can no longer
afford to depricate criticism, dress ourselves
in the glass of the world's approval and ape
foreign fashions and opinions. We must
ftfind erect, not ia theboastfulnes of youth,
but in the conscious strength of manhood,
dare to think, speak and do the right, not
beg the issue, but defy criticism and chal

The mo3t unfortunate day in the career of
any young man, is the day on which he
fancies there is some better way to get
money than to earn it; for from that feeling
springs the many extravagant and visionary
schemes which are indulged in for the pur
pose of gaining a livelihood without labor.
When a young man once becomes thorough
ly infected with this feeling he is ready to
adopt any means for the accomplishment of
his object; and if his plans are frustrated,
aud he is foiled in his efforts, upon the very
crest of the wave which he has already
mounted, and in full iew, is the tempta-
t tion to crime, to shield him lrom disgrace,
which he thinks must inevitably iollow m
the wake of the defeat ; to those he yields.
And the first ho realizes ho finds himself the
violator of the law, a criminal in the eyes
of the community, and an inmate of a pris
on, awaiting trial all brought on for the
want of a little manly firmness in the outset
of life to prompt him to choose an avoca
tion in life where the penny earned would
bring with it sure reward. Tnen let our
young men spurn the idea of obtaining
money without rendering an equivalent; let
them be ready and willing to occupy posi
tions in life which will give them the best
possible opportunity to develop their natural
talent, and do good to others while helping
themselves; in this way wc shall have a na
tion of noble men and women, which will
be a source of profit and pleasure to us and
an object of wonder an admiration to tho
world. Boston Investigator.
It is stated that twenty thousand millions
of matches are annually produced in tho
United States, which requires two hundred
and thirty thousand cubic feet of the best
piue wood in their production. If this
is true (and we do not doubt it"), the
material used is equal to 2,700,000 feet of
inch plank, which at $2.5 per thousand,
would cost $59,000, and when turned into
matches would produce $2,000,000. Tliers
is, therefore, a big profit somewhere in the
match business, or it costs "like smoke" to
make them. Mr. Eddy, of Ottowa, Canada,
probably manufactures at his establishment
as many, if not more, matches than all the
establishments in the United States. When
wc visited his establishment, just one year
ago, there were employed over 1,200 men,
women and children at this manufactury,
and it was said to be the largest establish
ment of the kind in the world. If we ever
go to that dreaded place below, wc will have
the gratification of knowing that we hare
smcilcd the odor, similar to that said to ex
ist in the lower regions, and will only have
to prepare ourself to taste its strength.

The Denver and Rio Grande Railroad
(San Juan Division), so important an auxil
ary in the development of the great mineral
resources of the San Juan country of Colo
rado, was completed across the summit of
the Yeta Pass, near Fort Garland, on the
SthofJune. This Pass is 9,340 feet above
tho sea level. It is higher by 1,000 feet
than any jKiint on the Central or Union Pa
cific railroad?, and is the highest elevation
ever crowned by any railroad in Europe or
North America, except Mexico. The track
is laid with steel rails, and the division is
now completed to Fort Garland. This road
will eventually drop down into the fertile
valley of the llio Graude on its western
course to the waters of the Great Colorado,
and will bind Arizona to her sister Terri
tories and States on the east with an iron
clasp, never to be unbound.
