LMt evening a large audience assembled in
ike clinrch of the Rev. Dr. Smiley, corner of
Eleventh nd Wood streets, the occasion beiriR
a lecture, entitled "The Wom-en of America,"
fcy that gentleman. The utmost attention pre
vailed, and when the lecturer uttered some of
ie most eloquent passages the audience were
roved to tear;. When some palpable hit was
made, a titter could be heard throughout the
moose. The lecture throughout was the best
ne we ever heard on the subject, and from the
ommencement to the peroration exhibited
ekep thought and a decree of logical excellence
larelj excelled. Wi regret exceedingly that a
verbatim report cannot be given, as our space
will not allow H. The lecturer, on coming for-,
Karfl, proceeded as follows;
Ladies and Gentlemen I feel happy to see so

but the appellative noun fortlieorlijinul spoolos.

Hlmu'lv iru-an the male Adam, nor yet the
Jemale Adam alone, but it was used Kenerl
imllv Hence, we are told that Ool created
man 'in ilia own image, in the linage of Uod
created He male and female. Here you have
the application of the torma male and female
'Adam,'' and the plural prououu then shows
The mode of man's creation was wonderfully
different from that ot the other creatures. Clod
created one person. Adam, but lie created
him wondrouslv both male and female in one.
'JUie history of the separation of woman from
the man, and the bringing of both together,
and the recognition of them in marriage, is one
f the most Interesting subjects in the history
of man. The animals were created before
Adam. The ox and tno lion, the pelican and
the eugle, the countless varieties were all mated
and passed in review, each equipped with its
lining consort, and all very good, Hut for
Adam there was found no helpmate for him.
To remedy this deticiency to, meet the exi
gency of the case, the Divine being said, "It is
not good for him to bo alone; I will make a
helpmeet for him ;" and as the result of this
Divine decision, finer and beauteous woman
was produced, separated from the side of man
the last production of the Artist's skill; the
last effort of His wisdom and will. The ques
tion in often asked, "Is there an inequality be
tween the sexes:" that is, is the foinalo Intellect
inferior to that of the man's? This question
seems to us to bo about as invidious as it would
Xxs to ask which is the most important, the
light or the heat that emanates from the sun ;
or which the most necessary, the ralu oc.tlie
sunshine to Hie flower. In regard to man and
woman, one is but the complement of the
Neither sex alone is the standard of human
nature. At the commencement Uoa made
Adam male and female, but designedly made
neither complete. He left a groat want in each,
that the two might coalesce into one; and that
combined one presents the perfection of the
Divine design. Neither sex alone is to be
looked at or regarded as the standard of human
nature. Woman, abroad from man what is
Bhe? A beautiful vine, with all its tenderest
Joioge, without the oak. A man, abroad from
'woman what is ho? Franklin's horn ly com
parison is apparently a right one, when he
aays that the old baeuelor would do very well
to scrape a mush-pot.
The entire constitution of man, organic, ani
mal, sensual, reliective, rational, voluntary,
and moral, was designed by Omuiscient Wis
Uom to be the complement of man's organic,
animal, sensual reflection voluutary moral
nature; and so strikingly true is this, that if you
find anything that Is peculiar or specific In the
one you find its counterpart in the other.
The ubvsical condition, the size and strength
of man, is relatively couiiterparted in the other.
The second, weak, looks to the strength and
courage of the former for protection and sup
port. He bold as the hawk, she soft as the dove.
Jeremiah Taylor says, "Man is strong, woman
is beautiful; man is oaring and conlident, wo
man is dillidentand unassuming; man is great
in action, woman in sullei-lu-j; man shines
abroad, woman at home; man talks to con
vince, woman to persuade and please; man is a
rugged mate, woman a soft and tender one;
man perfects misery, woman relieves It; man is
science, woman is taste: man has judgment,
woman sensibility; man is a being of justice,
woman of mercy." Milton gives a beautiful dis
crimination between them.
It appears to us that this matter oan be easily
solved by a single reflection.' What more odious
on earth than a bold, masculine woman?
Clothing except it be a feminine man, a soft,
delicate, bo-powdered, long pink colored gen
tleman, quirling a reflection of a moustache.
(Laughter.) When either sex seeks to infringe
or encroach on the other, the result is always
Inferiority, incongruity, and antagonism of
parts. A woman is not perfect for being like a
man, and man is never perfect tor resembling a
woman. The differences between the sexes are
among the most wonderful of natural phe
nomena. Woman tills up the vacuum in man,
absorbs the excess of his cares, balances his de
lects, reduplicates his joys.
If man is a lock, woman is the key, Divinely
fitted, and without which the lock is worth
less. If man is a harp, woman is the hand that
tones it and calls forth Its richest music, or
rather, she Is the melody that flies from Its
Btrings. Woman started in the great career of
lielng the equal of man, and but for sin would
tiave walked side by side with man throughout
time's pathway, each the equal and help of the
other, fulfiling the beneficent design of the great
Creator. This design was, to a eertaiu extent,
frustrated by the full of man, and Just us man
wandered from his Ood and abounded in sin, so
vras woman degraded and debased.
In considering the history of woman, we shall
divide the nations of the earth Into three classes,
the primitive nations, the derivative nations,
and tbe Christian nations, liy primitive nations
ve mean such nations as the Assyrian, the
Kgyptiau, and the Hebrew. These nations
received their knowledge and historical exist
ence from a common source and a common
period. Immediately subsequent to the Deluge
they seem to have had a knowledge of the arts,
cud rude modes of society. The Paganism of
that period badacommon origin andacommou
The derivative nations are those whose origin
commences at a much later and more obscure
period, by colonization from the primary
nations. The most remarkable of these are the
oltissle nations Greeks and Romans. Their
knowledge of the arts and laws were more or
less derived, at least in their rough elemeuta,
from the primitive nations, especially the
Kgyptian. The third form of civilly.utlon Is
Christian. The Christiau is, to a certalu extent.
allien with the neurew iorm or primitive so
ciety, but In u great many things it is radically
and effectually different. In barbarous nations
and amoug the savage tribes, in every uge, In
every clime, woman has not only been subor
dinate, servile, but she has been the veriest
Slave but little above the beast of burden.
U'heywere seized, carried off, and bartered for
goods degraded by polygamy debased by
The Assyrians had a novel way of disposing,
of their females. Once a veur the most beauti
ful were put upon a block and sold, liy this
means that portion of the population which
were marriageable were married. In Kgypt
men were bound to speak well of.lhem. In
Clreece women never rose up to the dignity of
man. She was bnt a household drudge, and
excluded from society. The laws of both tbe
fjrecians and Itomans kept them In a state of
oerrility, and treated them us beings without
common sense. Mahomet gives women no
place in Paradise.
The Jewish rabbis did not deetnwomanwortby
of instruction. Just as a woman was debased
and degraded, so was the race debased and de
graded. If you want to know the condition of
any age. all you want to flud out is, what was
the condition of the women of that age. Chris
tianity sets her up on high. When Christ came
forth from the grave victorious, the very first
words spoken were, "Woman, why weepest
thou T" As much as to say, my Gospel means
the lifting up of women; and they should both,
man and woman, journey together.
Onr themeparttenlarly to-night Is the womn
J America, and after all, America owes its dis
covery to a woman; aud may we not accept
this an an omen that it Is here In this eountry
she Is to find her fullest and freest expansion?
. ?m ln 'HVor 'f giving evory right to woman
that Is designed for her by nature and by
nature's iiod. I wish It distinctly understood
that 1 bave no sympathy with equal rights as
sociations. We hear a great deal about universal suffrage
in these days, and It is strongly urged that the
right to vote ought to be extended to women.
Will It be so? What then? What will be tbe
consequence? A right to vote for otllce implies
a right to hold office. And what then ? do into
your city and look at the political blackguard
ism when parties are aroused, and then look at
the pol It lofans, the office-seekers. I mean not
the statesman, but the politician. Look at him
a toady sycophant, double-faced aud waxen
nosed. Ask yourselves, would you have woman
step down into that seething, sweltering vat of
corruption? Would you have her portray her
modest worth, her angelllcal sweetness and
purity, the true and benign influences that she
exerts, let her remain In her proper sphere. It
is egalnst the law of God for woman to rulo.
The Uible says: "Alan must rule." I have no
sympathy with those who would lake a woman
out of her feminine sphere to put her In a mas
The speaker then reforred to marriage. He
said that unhappy marriages often result from
a too short acquaintance, and related a great
many anecdotes of married persons, which
excited a great deal of laughter. There are
often venial marriages, such as marrlaees for
money. Tbe speaker had heard an anecdote of
a man down South who married a rich widow
with a large number of slaves. When the
minister asked him if he would take the widow
to be his wile, he astouished all by saying, "Yes,
and the negroes too !"
The man who marries a woman merely for
wealth willllndin the long run that he has made
a terrible bargain. His life will be oneof glided
misery, and in old age will be like the crag on
the bleak side of a desert mountain, where the
cold and chilly moonbeams sometimes glitter,
aud where no sunlight ever falls; where no
rudianl blossoms bloom, but where the storm
howls; and amid tho sweeping, terrible storm
will be heard the strange voice of Uod, saying
"Your garments are moth-eaten, your gold and
silver are caukered, and is witness against you,
aud shall eat your flesh ns with fire." Tuero
are a number of elements that go to make up
the sum ol woman's lnnuence, three of which
simply operate as a power, but each point, in
eight eases out of ten. is Irresistible. The first
ot these Is modesty. The quiet, unobtrusive
gentleiuss of woman is a centre of noblest in
terest. Then comes in purity, gentleness, kindness,
cheerfulness each one by ilslf exhibits the ex
istence tf female influence. These gentle affec
tions are to man what sunbeams are to the
open flower. The speaker then reforred to
Washington, and said it was his mother's
training that made him such a good man; and
if mothers in general would train up their
children right they would bo surprised at the
results. The goal of yesterday is theresting
p:ace to-day,aud tho starting point to-morrow.
The career of Washington is onward and up
ward, is like the llight of the eagle towards the
sun, until by tho almost universal acclamation
of his countrymen he is elected the President
of the very itepublic that ins genoramnip nas
won. Woman in America is different from
woman everywliero else. Ask tho travellers
who wander through the most enlightened
parts of Kurope, how woman hero compares
with woman there, and they tell you woman
on the average 111 America is immeasurably
different in her condition, and better clothed,
better treated, has a better home, is more re
spected, and has less pf the primary curse rest
ing upon her.
Avenues of Industrial employments have
been gradually opening up to her to which she
Is adapted, and which she is capable of filling,
and there are a thousand employments whicu
are yet closed which ought to be open, which
will shortly bo open to womanly competition.
There Is oue thing upon this point that wo wish
to say, and that is, where a woman fulfils the
duties that are performed by a man, in all
reason and in all sense she ought to receive the
same remuneration. (Applause.) The only
reason that I ever heard for not doing so was
that of a man who employed a number of
women, and the reason he assigned lor it was,
tliHt a woman earns about one-third less.
Now, ladies, just eat double as much, and then
the pay will be corresponding. (Laughter.) The
lecturer then made an appeal to the mothers of
babes to consecrate them to Christ, and as tney
grow older administer to them the oath con
stitutional republican liberty; oue and In
separable; now and forever. The speaker con
tinued at some length, and concluded with a
description of woman, from Infancy to old age
and death, dwelling particularly upon the point
where she enters into the marriuge slate, and
branchlet after blanchlet has been planted iu
the Kden of life, and at lust they all gather
around the death-bed, and then bid farewell
to the one who loved and cherished them iu
A SAM PATCH LEAP !
An Intoxicated Mni Jumps from a Sus
pension Bridge lie Strike Upon a.
Cake of Ice and la Kescued.
Yesterday about 9i o'clock, a man was seen
to leap from about tue middle of the Cincinnati
and Covington Bridge into the river. He went
down feet loremost and struck upon a mass of
floating ice, which fortunately buoyed him up
until asEistance could reach liiui. A yawl, be
longing to the Geoeial Buell, was manned and
went to his relief, and after some difficulty in
getting through the ice, succeeded in rescuing
him irom his perilous position and bringing
him ashore. He was not injured sufficiently to
prevent his walking up town. He is a German,
and said to be a beer saloon keeper in Coving
ton. We could not obtain his name. He was
evidently delirious Irom drink, and jumped
from the bridge in that frenzy of which the
alcoholic beverages ot the present day so readily
engender. The leap sobered him a good deal.
as a fall of seventy-live or eighty feet might well
be supposed to do. So rauch ice water with
whisky cannot be good.
Later. We have since learned the name of
the desperate man. It is John Haufbauer. His
wife ordered bis arrest, on some trivial charge,
and he concluded to escape her clutches by
leaping into the river. As soon as he was taken
to the shore, he was arrested, and this morning
we saw him calm as a summer morning on the
prisoner's bench oi the Police Court; but up to
the hour we kit the room, hiscaehad not been
P. 8. Since the above was written, we learn
that Hautbauer was tried before Judge Warren,
and "sent down stairs." Cincinnati Times, Mi.
