Women's Rights. LETTER FROM HARRIET MARTAINAU.
The following lottct from Miss. Martainau to
to Mrs. Qage which wo hiivo permission to copy,
will bo read with interest.
Mr Dkar Madam: Your Ictltnr ling given
mo great pleasure, anil I llinuk you Tor send
ing me the assurance of your sympnthy, and
o interesting n glimpse as you nflnrd 1110 of
your position anil your life. ilon't see thnt
we eon do nny filing hut good in necking tlie
advancement of woman, ns long ns our great
aim, felt nn, I avowed, in to further llie dis
charge, of duty, t think we tuny go on
bravely and stoutly, while our demands arc,
not for pleasures nnd vanities, but that wo.
mail may have a tetter clinnco of lienltli and
strength, of senso and cheerfulness, of
knowledge and self-discipline. Men will
. not long be afrnid of thot which will innku
thoir homes comfortuhlo, their wives rcosnn
ohle, their children licnllhy and obedient,
nnd their affairs orderly ami prosperous.
And in your country, especially, I think tho
progress may be rapid, if women ask just
that which it is their plain human right to
liave, means of health of body and mind.
In your country, I think I have seen the
wrongest examples of every sort of women.
Certainly, I never saw elsewhere women so
utterly insufferable as certain specimens of
the wives of rich merchants in your great sea
ports; the whining discontent, the wretched
health, the spiteful and tenziug temper, tho
tyranny over domestics, the malice towards
neighbors, tho insulting behavior to hus
bands these things ninde up tho most hor
rible spectuelo of domeHtio life that I have
ever seen in any country. On tho other
liond I can nowhere look for more exquisite
wive nnd mothers than some of your coun
trywomen whose powers nnd whose learn
ing might mtnlify them to take a place among
men, in almost any intellectual rank in any
country. And then, you have all gradations
between tho idiot and tho sage; and espec
ially, 1 may note, a large proportion of peil.
nuts among your advancing women. This
is unavoidable, t know. 'J'hcre was an ago
of tho world, when knowledge began to bu
diffused again, w hen men were pedants.
1 do not quarrel with tho fact, because it is
unavoidable, and becauso it is & sign of
progress: but 1 rather dread the pedants
taking possession of the movement, pushing
forward their own personal claims, nnd mak
ing tho cause ridiculous by their conceit,
and offensive by thoir self regard.
1 believe and trust there nro ninny thou
and women about you who will eio lung
bold your views, and say aloud, however
modestly nnd quietly, that they desire tho
means of health for themselves and their
daughters, tho means of doing their duty
better, whatever may be tho duty that lies
nearest to band, the means of ascertaining
fairly bow mHch they are able to do for the
enlightening and training, and serving nnd
aiding all who may be within reach of their
influence. I!y perseverance in this claim
together with steady sweetness in urging It,
by a diligent use of nil means of improve
nicnt as they arise, and by a conscientious
dischurgo of every existing duty, the mure
strenuous and patient as tho intellect lie
comes stronger, I have every hope that
generation or two will expcncnco a great
advancement, and every body will be the
happier for the progression of a part of the
grout human family, w hich must ever sin and
suffer, or prosper and enjoy throughout und
' not partially. Men and children stiller as
much as women from tho present state
things; ond 1 trust ami' believe that they
will one day be taught this by the happy
experience of a great amelioration. As for
mo, 1 work on in a ipiiet sort of way
the cause, rendering my health hardy
exercise, cold water, and plain diet ; making
my servants and neighbors as happy os
can (which is chiefly by being uncommonly
happy myself;) and trying to think and
learn as diligently ns I can ; uud then saying
pluinly wliut 1 think uud have learned, with
out any regurd to w hat the world may say,
my topics being of general interest and
therefore, fit the general disposal.

The f illo ing letter, where nnd by whom.

business. ndils another to the ten thousand

supporters of iho llultimore platforms, with
a blasphemy that would have blistered the

might prompt some of the patriotic members
of those parties to be niter him with instru

It has been hinted to us, thnt the author

sion in his note, lint the fiict, that he does

to us, that Iho ii reverence of thnt expression
lies only in its letter. It is not, therefore,

Slavery under Moslem Sway.
Thero Is slavery in Turkey. Rev. D. M.
Wilson, Missionary ut Beirut, Syria, has
lately written for the Central Christian Her
aid, a somewhat detailed account of its char
acteristie features. Ihn slaves nre mostly
brought trom l.gypt nml Abyssinia nro cm
ployed clnelly us house servants, never in
"gang," ns on our Southern plantations;
usually but one or two in ench family ; nro
commonly well dressed nud fed, nnd within
his know ledge never worked severely or nny
way maltreated. It is remni liable that slaves
rnrely if ever many, or coiistituto families
nre bought young, nnd us n general rule set
free helore tho mhrinilies ol age come on.
The idea of hereditary shivery is unknown.
Of course, sinvo-hrncdihg w ith nil its dis
gusting nnd wicked uccouipnniincuts, has no
A fact yet more remarkable is that no pre
judice against color obtains in that country.
" I have not," says Mr. W., " beon able
discover the least trace of that hateful feeling
so common in our Slave nnd especially
our Free Stales. Hank is every thing
Syria ; but rank has nothing to do with color.
The colored man w ho is u sluve has nearly
as high a seat as the hired house-servant who
is white A white man does not feel degra
ded because u richer black mini is preferred
helore him. Mr. Calhoun another missiou
nryl told mo not lung since thut ho had seen
nt tlie capital n white mull holding the stir
rup for n black Colonel, as a welcome part
of his military duty. When Dr. Bacon was
about lenving Syria, ho remarked to me that
he found nothing like prejudice against color
in Syria. Every Sabbath, ut the mission
church in Beirut, a very bluck man may
seen seated among white men, often in
midst of a bench filled with well dressed
"No one thinks of nny thing out of taste
in oil this. Moslems, us is well kuown,iuurry
black women ns well ns white!"
Here are facts for Americans, nnd espe
cially American C'hritliani, to ponder. Hero
is the religion of Moslem in contrast with
American Christianity, each begetting its dis
tinctive type of slavery. Why ure the bands
of tho Moslem silk, and luo bands of
Clnsttaii iron '
Our charity (beginning nt home) wns nbnul
to suggest thut, inasmuch ns the slaves bro'l
into Syria from Africu nre chiefly of the Mos
lem religion, a fraternal feeling would nat
urally spring up, nud the doctrines of
Moslem faith would have their full scope
modifying nud softening the stringent points
in the sluve's condition. But we are check
ed in tho outsot of this npology far Chris
liun slaves in our country fare uo better, even
among Christian masters, than if they were
Pagans. We mcuu thut the tame general
1 laws obtain in their case, the snme ilimiliili
nuthorized ties, the sumo prejudice against color, the
, name degrading auction block, the snme
hereditary law, the same doctrine of property
in their bodies and souls both tho same
every thing with which man cnit crush nnd
cursn his luitow-mnn.
Must we then admit thnt the system of
Mahomet is humane and benevolent, above
the system of Jesus Christ? We can ndmit
no such thing. The system of Jesus Christ
in its purity and power has not yet touched
American slavery. When It does, the iron
of its bauds will be ns burnt tow.
With what face enn slnvehnhling and
slavery-sustaining professors of Christianity
compare their own slavery with that of the
children of the Crescent ? Ho long as they
claim to hnve the rcnl gospel and to exem
plify its spirit, how can they answer it before
tho bar nf even earthly men, that their own
shivery is so snvngn, so terrible, while that of
Mohnmmeiliins in nynn anil turkey Is to
mild ? There is only one alternative. They
must trnihico Christianity putting it down
indefinitely below Moslemism, or they most
admit thnt their Christianity is spurious nnd
rotten, nnd thnt tho true system of Christ's
teachings and spirit has never been brought
in contact with American slavery nt nil.
For our part, we shall sooner traduce our
Southern Christian brethren (nominally so)
thnn traduce Christ's blessed gospel. So
help us, Clod! Ohcrtin Evangelist.

Electioneering Democratic Speech. WASHINGTON, CITY, July 11, 1852.
Gentlemen: The whulo machinery fiir
electioneering is now in full operation here.
There is the Whig Executive Committee.
I'hey huve their rooms and strong corps ol
Clerks. Ample minis me provided, lean
not state the amount. J here are dully trans
ported from the Capitol, thousands, but inn
iillv tens of thousands of documents. They
nre franked and directed, and then put into
tho Post Olhce to go to nil parts ol the IJni
ted .States. Tho w hole U a well regulated
anil ellicient system.
I he Democratic organization and arrange-
meiit is equally perfect in its details. Suim-
ble documents mid speeches nre sent iMorth,
nnd those calculated to n warm cliinalu nre
sent South. Splendid fortunes nre involved
in the contest. If Scott be elected certain
individuals will hold ollice, and thousands of
others will obtain government contracts ut
such rules as to enrich themselves. If Pierce
be elected others will reap tha golden bar
vest by gathering wealth from the hard earn
ings of the peopie.
This privilege of getting rich upon the
spoils gathered from the people's pockets
constitutes the only issno now in contest.
There is no doctrine, no principle of human
rights. J here is not even a question ol policy
between them. Yet Free Sudors nro nsked

man who possesses n lovo lor mankind eon

Iron the Civilizer.
The Ago of Gold nnd the Age of Bronze
have given placo to tho Ago of Iron. Iron is
your true ngent of civilization. So savs Mr.
Hubert Stevenson nt Itangor. In sight of the
Menai nnd Conway tubular bridges, he might

saying might remind one of the "nothing

n great power III tho present age. It is revo
lutionizing tho world, i he iron rail and Iho
iron wires of the tel 'graph havo nlrcndy
brought towns so ucur to each other that
country bus become ns one vast city. And
iron railroads are bringing countries nearer
to each other, nud nro binding them into one
common interest. We even hear of an iron
bond of union between England und Calcutta,

LITTELL'S L1VIKG AGE."
Extracts of letters from Judge Story, Chancellor
Kent, and 1'retidetit Adam:.
CAMBnmuK, April 24, 1844,
I have read the prospectus with great plea
sure, and entirely approve Ihe plan. If it
can only obtain the public palronnge long
enough, nud Inrgo enough, and securely
enough to attain its true ends, it will contri
bute in nn eminent degree to give a healthy
tone not only to our lilernture, but to publitf
opinion. It will ennble us lo possess in
moderate compass a select library of the bet
productions of the age. It will d more; it
will redeem our periodical literature from
tho rcpronch of lieing devoted to light a)
superficial rending, to transitory speculations,
to sickly and ephemeral seiilimciitnliliea, anil
false nnd extravagant sketches of life audi

I npprovc very much of Ihe plua ut th
'Living Age; and if it he conducted wilW
the intelligence, spirit nnd taste that lb
pinspecliis Inilicntes, (of which I hnve no.
reason to doubt,) it will be one of the-most
instructive nud inipulur periodicals of llie
dny. . JAMES KENT.
Wasuinoto, 27th Dec, 1844.
Of ull the M:riodical journals devoted to
literature und science which ubound in Eu
rope and in this country, this hns nppraml
to mo the most useful. It cuiilains indeed
the exposition only of the current literature .
of the English language, but this by its im
mense extent nud comprehension, includes)
a portraituro of Iho hiiniaii mind inthe ut
most expansion ot the pn sent age.
J. a ADAMS.
This work is conducted in the spirit ot
Littell's Museum of Foreign Liteintiin,
(which was favorably received by the public
lor twenty years,) but ns it is twice ns lurge,
and appears so often, we not only give spirit
nud freshness to it by Inni.y tilings wfiicU
were excluded by n mouth's delay, but while-
we nro thus extending our scope und gulher
itiu a mentor und more altraclive variety, are
nblo so to increase the solid uud Mibslniitiai
pnrt of our literary, historical, mid political
harvest, as fully lo satisfy the wuiils tf lb
The eluboriilu nnd stalely Essays of the.
Edinburgh Quarterly, nud other Reviews
nud lllackwood's noble criticisms on Poetry,
his keen political Coiniiuidaries, highly,
wrought Tales nud vivid descriptions ol ru
ral and mountain Scenery ; and the contri
butions to Lilernture, History, and Common

busy uud industrious t.uzcltc, tho em ibhr
und comprehensive liriianiiia, ihe sober anil
respectable Christian Observer ; these mo
intermixed with the Military nnd Naval remi
niscences of the I'niled Service, and with,
tin; best articles of the Dublin I'liivcrsiiy,
New Monthly, Frazer's, Tail's, AiiiKWoiibV,
Hood's, nud Spurting Miignziiiis, and id"
Chamber's admirable Journal. We do not
consider it beneath our dignity to borrow
wit uud wisdom from Punch ; nud, when w
think it good enough, to make use id' ll.e
