THE DAILY EVciNiNG TKLSGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, FRIDAY, J UNE 9, 1871.
TBE INTOLERANCE OF WOMAN.
There is nothing that exasperates an intel
ligent woman more than the asinine confi
dence with which inferior men are in the
habit of dogmstizing on the differences be
tween the sexes, and indicating what they
are pleased to call the "appropriate sphere"
of woman. With the quick intnition oharao
terintio of the feminine miad, she sees in
stantly that these gentlemen are talking of
something on which they do not deign to ex
ercise what little power of thinking they pos
sess; that the pompons nothings, so wisely
mouthed, are not judgments to be disounsed,
bnt insults to be resented. Heaven forbid
that we should enter into a controversy
where the lorgest grasp and the most delicate
discrimination of mind have been 89
often at fault ! Still, there is one secondary
question, relating to facta rather than to
principles, which wo will venture to empha
size. Intolerance is the curse of the world. Now
men are more or less intolerant, bat they are
notoriously not so intolerant as women.
Without considering the question whether
this difference has any root in an essential
diff erence between the intelligence and con
science of the two sexes, the fact, as society
is now constitnted, is too evident to be de
nied. Men can object to what is objectiona
ble in an individual, and still preserve
some good-will, or reopect, or even admi
ration, for the individual considered in the
totality of his character; women vividly see
and intensely feel the particular defect, and
are generally relentless in identifying it
with the whole personality they condemn.
This antithesis between the sexes is farther
complicated by the fact that the moment
aff ection enters inVo the matter, the women
ignore the particular defect, and excel all
mankind in a toleration which is unreasona
ble and sometimes even stupid. The drama
tists and novelists of the world are united in
testifying to this peculiarity of women that
they are, from the merely intellectual point
of view, more cruelly unjnst than men,
and from the emotional point of view more
ridiculously credulous. The imperfect per
son, not loved, is despised beyond all possi
bilities of masculine contempt; the person
loved is absolved from all the laws whioh the
most tolerant and comprehensive men inexo
rably insist on applying. Here is a practical
method of judgiug the two sexes, according
to the circumstances in which they have
heretofore been placed. It is not man and
woman that we presume to discuss; we are
only fearful that we may make the smallest
mistake in considering the subtle play of
antipathies and sympathies, which mark
one phase of the practical life of men and
The injustice of women to men is some
thing which we will not consider, though it
might furnish endless topics for subtle dis
quisitions. The intolerance we specially
desire to mark is that whioh women enter
tain for each other. Every man who has ap
peared as the champion of "Woman's Rights"
will tell you, if he is candid, that he finds his
bitterest opponents in women. Those who
do not sympathize with him, in his general
principles, oppose him in a way to whioh
men are accustomed in their controversies
with other men. A certain neutral ground of
season is admitted, by the most prejudiced
men, as necessary to be set apart, if any sub
ject is to be discussed; the prejudiced women
invade the narrowest strip of ground where
opposing minds can meet in fair discussion,
and come into direct contact with their oppo
nents, substituting the passionate assertion of
their swift perceptions for argument. They
seem to be incompetent, even in a matter
affecting the rights of their own sex, to look
at things in their relations. The men who
most profoundly disbelieve in "Woman's
Hights," are everywhere outdone in unreason
ableness by the feminine antagonists of the
Even when women are combined in asso
ciations for the purpose of asserting their
"rights," they do not eucceed in being tole
rant of each other as individuals. In public
Mary puff's Jane, and Jane puff's Mary; in
private they have as keen a perception of
each other's faults and shortcomings as
though they were rival belles, and are apt to
be as sharp and frank in its expression. Man's
inhumanity to man has made "countless
i housands mourn" for many ages; but what
&hall we say of woman's inhumanity to
The explanation of the intolerance of
women may, however, be said to arise, in a
great degree, from the fact that they have
formerly been excluded from the real busi
ness of life. The conduct of government has
heretofore been limited to men. The occu
pations, mechanical, commercial, and pro
fessional, by which a family is supported,
Lave heretofore been confined to the mason
line "head of the family." But in mingling
as a force in the affairs of government and
business, each man comes into collision with
other men, just as intolerant as himself. lis
Boon finds that he must, as citizen, wor k
man, merchant, or thinker, compromise with
his opponents. Men quickly learn that they
have no choice between killing each other or
having some toleration for each other. From
this knowledge proceed most of the customs,
nsages, and laws which we call civilization.
The caprices of individuality are cheoked and
limited by the constant collision of indivi
dualities. A neutral ground of reason, of
common sense, is accordingly established. All
men feel that, unless they submit to the de
cisions of this common sense, they must fight
it out on some prescribed line forever. In
the interests of peace they consent to be rea
sonable and tolerant.
It is plain that women have not heretofore
been subjected to that austere education of
facts by which men have been somewhat
emancipated from the caprioes of individuali
ty. If the minds of women would be en
larged by giving them the right to vote, and
the right to contend with men in all the en
lerprues 01 industry no intelligent man
would oppose their claims. The narrowne ss
and folly of some of the champions of "Wo-
znjan s Lights are the real obstacles to the
success of their cause. Men are, as we have
said, intolerant enough; but to add a new in
tolerance to that under which the world now
groans would give no additional impulse to
the advancement of the human raoe.

A FIELD FOR DARWIX.
A writer in the last number of the Gentle
man i Magazine says there "is a field of in
quiry as yet almost tmtouohed by the advo
cates of the Darwinian philosophy. They
have delved deeply in the quarries of the
lower animals. They have worked hard at
the natural history of aboriginal and primitive
raoes of our own kind. Why not take a turn
at the highly civilized tribes? It is sometimes
hard searching for the germ of future moral
and intellectual greatness among the mollusks
and quadrumana, but the traces of lower
types of being are numerous and distinot
enough among ourselves. Let the philoso
phers come and make a schedule of our vioes,
our meannesses, our grovelling tastes. Let
them take note of the constantly recurring
tendency to run back upon the
lines of our . development and
to exhibit features of relationship
with our ignominious parentage. We hold
our heads very high to-day. We take a gene
rous and dignified view of things. Our honor
mav not be questioned, uur nonesty is be
yond (suspicion. But how little is needed to
demoralize ub! A turn of fortune; the false
hood of a friend; a bout of ill-nsago; a chanoe
temptation dexterously applied to our secret
weakness and we betray the old taint in the
blood. Let Mr. Darwin put the animals on
one side for the time, and go among his fel
low-creatures, lie may not find the incipient
foot of the reptile under the skin whioh
covers the human ribs; but he may discover,
perhaps, traces of the instinct of any one of
the most and the least admirable of the inferior
creatures of the earth, the air, and the sea.
What are the thirty or forty millions in
cluded in the new census all doing to-day?
Some are creeping at night into holes not
very different from those whioh give shelter
to the wolf and the bear. Some have abso
lutely no belief in honesty or virtue. To
many thousands of them a noble thought or
a generous feeling is impossible and inexpli
cable. But our scientific theorists should
not stop at mere observation. Their most
convincing results are those of experiment.
Let them put ns through a few simple tests,
and see what they can make of us in a gene
ration or two. Let them subject us to alter
nate periods of hunger and feasts of raw
meat. Let them deal with ns as they do
with plants and animals in the interests of
discovery not to produce new varieties
and higher developments for nature can
not be hurried on but to reduce us back
to that from which we sprung. Facilis de
