When the policy was about te expire the
agent informed him of the fact and he said
that he desired te insure his ether
buildingsalse for three years mere and told
the agent te make the survey. This was done

Kign an application in blank, as he might
net be home en May 31st. This was done

ever $1,000, is sought te be recovered by
plaintiff. The defense is that the insur
ance expired en May 3d, before the fire
occurred, and that the receipt when given
was of that date. On trial.
WOMANHOOD IX SIIAK-jl'KAKK
Lecture by Wallace. Uruce Last Kvcning.
Mr. "Wallace Bruce, of Peughkecpsie,
X. Y., lectured last evening at Fulton hall
upon " Womanhood in Shakspearc." The
" orator of literature " was introduced by
Marriett Uresius, esq, lie said that the
title of the lecture combined the two best
known words in the EuglUli language. Te
place upon the stage all the charactcis of
Shakspeaic's dramas would require seven
hundred perfeiincis. and net ene
of these creatures resembles in the
slightest degiee any ether. Se true
are they drawn te nature that net
one among them all will ever be out of
date. Among these diameters we find
four heieines te every here about the
ratio In which they aic found in leal life.
The difficulty is that among se many it is
no slight matter te make selections for
illustration. Glancing at Shakspeare's
creations as a whole we are struck l3' the
strength of his heroines and the remark
able weakness of his heroes. With the
exception of Antonie, in the "Merchant of
Venice," and Brutus, he has given us no
.strong or perfect man.
The lecturer described a picture he had
seen in which were grouped all the
diameters of Aven's bard. The heroines
appeared like sunshine piercing the sad
ness and gloom which surrounded his
lierees. He divided the female characters
of the poet into three classes, the roman
tic, the domestic and the heroic.
Miranda, Rosalind, Ophelia and Julist
were chosen as illustrations of the romantic
in womanhood. Most poets and nearly all
novelists end their story here leaving off
with the sound of the marriage bells. But
we de net find it se in Shakspeare, nor in
actual life. The master-genius subordi
nates the ideal te the real. Queen Cather
ine, Imogene, Cerdelia and Isabella were
chosen te represent the domestic and hero
ic in womanhood. Of all the poet's female
creations the lecturer esteemed Portia the
most perfect, combining in herself the
three qualities of his analysis romance,
the domestic virtue, and heroism. She al
most reached the ideal of a perfect woman.
Our conclusion from the s-tudy of Shak
Kpeare's female characters is that in his
dramas woman is ever represented, wherever
we find her, as the soul of society. Her
strenirth lies in her moral influence, and
her mission is te reform and elevate man
kind. Mr. Bruce illustrated his lecture by
many apt quotations from the great
dramatist, and proved himself throughout
te be a familiar student of his critics as
well as his works. His delivery was easy
and graceful and his description marked
by great beauty of language. He was in
teriupted several times by hearty ap
plause, and the audience departed well
pleased with the entertainment.

It is publicly announced that Mrs. Har

United States, was born, and will erect

What the character of her memorial

place it is tee that "Gap " en the read te

the outlines of the mountain just there,
with the gray turnpike winding ever it, and
the cone-shaped cedars and the laurels, and

palpable that one could almost fondle them.

Graduates or the Naval Academy.
The report of the secretary of the navy,
in answer te a resolution of the Heuse of
Representatives, in regard te the probable
number of midshipmen who will enter the '
navy from the naval academv at Annaneli
shows that there are forty-four midship
men who have passed their final examma-v
tien for ensign and thirty-five ethers
who will come up for final exam.'
inatien in June next. As three ".
of the latter are sick and some will fail
when they come up for examination, the -secretary
concludes that of the whole seventy-nine
net mere than sixty-five or sev
enty will be available te fill vacancies.
As there were no graduates in 1877 .
and 1878, owing te the change from a
four years' te a six years' course, and "
as the number appointed at large is re- -stricted
te ten for each of the four classes,
this restriction and the extension of the
course will greatly reduce hereafter the ""
number of cadets at the academy. Under
the old system, en an average of iive years,
only thirty-two or forty-seven per cent,
of the total number that had passed .
through the entire course were grad
uated, under tue six years course, and
with the smaller number of cadetss appoint
ed, the secretary estimates that no mero
than twenty-five will graduate an
nually. At the same tirae tha va
cancies created in the line officers by
deatli and from ether causes average
about thirty annually. The number of
iiuusiupmcn en ine navy list lias, year
by year bcen steadily declining from
ene hundred and thirteen in 1873 te forty
four at the present time. There will
be vacancies for most of the ethers
who may be admittedle the grade of en
sign in the March examination of the ' ,
present year. Subsequently the average
supply of twenty-five officers annually from
the academy will net be adequate te- fill
the vacancies that annually occur amenjr
naval officers of the ether grades if the
present system is maintained. On this
statement the committee en naval affairs,
te whom the resolution was referred,
asked te be discharged from its further
New Hampshire va. Louisiana.
An original bill was filed yesterday in
the supreme court of the United States in
which the state of New Hampshire is com
plainant and the state of Louisiana de
fendant. The object of the bill is te com
pel the payment by the state of Louisiana
of its rightful obligations which it has re
pudiated. The bill sets forth the history
of the indebtedness of Louisiana en which
it has defaulted, and recites the acts assum
ing te provide for the payment of the same.
It petitions the supreme court for an in
junction against the state officers of Louis
iana, requiring them te appear in the
court and answer the premises and "abide
by the said order, direction and decree as
may be made against them in the premises,
and as shall seem meet and agreeable te
equity and geed conscience." Tite case
will be argued by the attorney general of
New Hampshire and by eminent associate
counsel. It is in accordance with the idea
that was suggested some time since as
being the best method for a hope that the
state of Louisiana could be compelled te
fulfill its obligations. The state of New
Hampshire, of course, stands forward n-i
the representative of citizens who are the
holders of Louisiana bends.
