Syracuse N. Y., Sept. 8th, 1852.
Mrs. K. Oukes Smith hna just delivered a
inustcily address, clothing the practical duty
before lis With the artistic lioauly of In r
pou'u; soul, urging to immediate act ion ill nil
possible ways "that this place alieady a
watch word of freedom, lie the Thcrinnpultio
where we take our stand until death."
Mis Lucy Stone rose to speak on thu first
resolutions. I can give you very little idea
of her eloquence. iinireM(ivent.,f -. nnd close.
clcur login from any pnrtiul repoit. tSliu
peaks without pri'piirulioii, hut ulo without
li.'Miution or wandering, nud is a universal
favorite with the audience. Pliu is hiiiuII in
staturo, dresses pnrliully a la liloemer, t hot U
in n neut dress of black silk, slightly thort
I'licd nud loosely ruling, beneath which nro
tight pnnts of the amiie material) id plain in
nppearnnce, hut with n dice, with n glow of
intellect, and features soltcncd into almost
imsitiva beauty, hy the thoroughly kind mid
loving rouI that look forth through thrill.
Tiiu present address wna characterized hy
her usual directness, consisting mostly of
illustrations of the working of the lawa in
n gard to woniiin. Among other alio men
tion! J a case in Huston, of n young lady
who uinrricd, bringing to her husband seve
i:d thousand Dollars, lie died liiur weeks
mii r llin marriage, nml hit relatives cnuiu
down from the country, entered their cluini
and secured two-third of her property.
A not her, of a mother, who had labored
wiili nil a true woinnn'a self-sacrificing devo
tion, to acrunuilate a sum sulliciciit to enrry
her only child, an invalid, to thu sea-shore,
us n Inst rhnnce of restoration, when thu
Inn il-hcarted hushnnd ond father learning
the place of drposile of this invaluuhlu
treasure, seized it, (you know it wna not
stealing undtr the laic, it wns his, because, the j
unman teat his, ho owned her) appropriated
it !' pay old debts, and lei) his child to diu
nnd his wife tc weep unavailing tears and
stiller untold miseries.
Another still, where a young ninn not long
married, wns sinking into the grave leaving
ii wilii mid daughter. A brother of his long
married and childless, wished greutly to ob
tain thu child as his own, nnd by continued
peistusions succeeded in securing mi article
1'iaking her over In himself upon the death
id' his brother. He alter wurds persuaded
ti n mother to consent to her return with
him to hia home, for a mere visit, hut when
upon the death of the father, the mother
Moto for her return, she wns informed it
w as no longer hers, but hit, and when in her
ih snlntion and anguish of snul alio aet oil'
f r the plncc, and sought legal advice, wns
eliowu us lieyond appeal the ilociuucnl in tho
tremulous hand of the sick hiisbund, making
over her own child to another. Von w ill
say ndded Miss S. ihut thesu were till very
mean men. Yes, hut remember just us
menu at the law atloict Hum to be.
Antoinette lirown, of Rochester, followed,
fiiio is like Mis H. a giaduato of Oheilin,
nud nn honor to it. lint quite unlike her
otherwise. I In lcs vigor mid strength, nud
less intellectuality of liice,in every way more
thoroughly feminine, hut is of inoro pleas
ing address and well cultivated mind. ,Sho
in god woman's right to he tried by her i
" " J -
ti ers, from the impossibility that one of nn
other sc.x should so well understand her na
ture, her peculiar trials and I limitations.
It is not so much because they will not, that
they cannot right women, they do not know
how to do if.
Mrs. I'.rnestine Rose, of New York city,
followed. She is a Polish lady, of fine tal
ents and cultivation, of prepossussiug per
M nnl nppcarnucu, her jiurk hair silvered
with grey, but nn eye of youthful ftro that
kindles into a brilliancy under thn glow of
thought. She dill'ered on some points from
Til: li. bi t urged thnt the right of woman
in n trial by her peers wns equally hers,
nheihcr she was unlike man or otherwise.
II nlike, the right wns ns evidently hers ns
bis, if unlike he cannot rightly understand or
represent her. She spoko of the charge of
niiibilioii brought against the women of ibis
ctliirt, nml insisted that a certain ainount of!
ambition i essential to full development mid
niceess in man, why not in woman. Is it
right nnd well to Im a great rnnn, but wrong
to bo a grunt woman? She decided wiih
r anicstnris the idea of si in mind or mor
ula, wo could not make n thing right in one
Hex and vt rong in the other. Shu said it was
proof of great native beauty, intellect, nnd
nobility of soul in woman that under ull tho
ilifcouingemeiits, und despite of nil hin
drance, she is good for, ns much ns she is,
nud many know that is little enough, ns a
sex. Said she we have only to make politi
cal nction legal, and it will he f.ishioiinble,
nnd instanced the effort in regard to the
rights of mnriied women to property, the
exceeding difficulty of obtaining the name of
n singlu woman to the undertaking, but now
that alter long years of persevering struggles
by the few, this has been gained lor them, no
woman of all New York lifts her voice in
opposition. Her earnestness of delivery nnd
the slight brogue of her utterance add much
tn the iiiiireiveUKss of w hat she has to say.
Miss U. exclaimed further, thai she claimed
t. either man nor woman to be tho superior,
but that there were peculiarities of mind ami
organization which required representation
woman should be represented us ahe is, us
woman. We don't want woman ushered
into public life as man, but as woman. If
like man, it is her right to go; if unlike her
Mrs. Nichols of Vermont, followed. She
is editress of the " Windham County Dem
ocrat," le ft in charge of it by the death of
her husband, and proving herself equal to
its care. I have spokeu of her before I think.
She said she rose as a political woman and
hocd she need not attempt to prove to them
that she bad not lost her womanhood. Said
the peculiarities of women do not viiiule
her humanity, but rather intensify it ond in
crease the necessity for the exercise of her
rights. Referred to the English common law
ns using the term " suspended" in applica

She thought it a happy term as there were
now evident tokens of retilTn to life, at least
in some of the States, hoped she will be a live

that since in accordance w ith the terms of this

Mr. II. M. Tract, now Mra. Cim.r.n, re

in good works nnd in examining nnd com

Ihirinir her nbsenee Mrs. T. wrote a acriee
of interesting letters to the Ohio Statesman
nnd in nn epinlle from New Voik alio thus

Delaware, I looked out with tho cold eye of
n critic, comparing tho shades of green, thu
fin ins of trees, the aspect of houses in the
distance, in short, the whole landscape, to
see if it nero worthy the eiilogiums that I
had been wont to lavish upon it in tho old

Then who the beautiful city of I'enn upon

what I hud daily seen in the Old World.
Then I hail not vainly boasted, it was true,
nil true, nud more than true, what I had
said mid boasted of in the Old World. We
were not faultless, hut we possessed elements
of general happinctis mid refinement in a

1 went out through tho city, into the midst
ol its green shmle, nud looked upon the
works of men's hands, whero wculth hud
reared stately domes, mid benevolence hud
ronserrnicd them to thu good of humanity.
Did thu finest specimens of architectural ni l
in the cities of the Old World so entirely
eclipse all that J here saw? No. thero wns
the Asylum for Orphans reared hy the inn-

It is said by some tourist, thnt the most

To their lord of ancient line.

Rendered even more sublime.

A Storm of Newspapers.
It wns a nunrtcr belbre six o'clock when
Ihev crossed the hull six being tho latest
hour nt which the newspapers can lie misted
without fee. It was just then drizzling
newspapers. Tho Brent window of thn de
pailiueiit being thrown open, the fust hluek
liingo of a thunder-cloud of newspapers
impcuihnu over the Post-olhco was dischar
ging itself fitfully now in largo drops, now
m little; now m sudden plumps, now stop
ping altogether, lly degrees thu storm come
on harder and harder, until it blew, tnuieil,
hailed, snowed newspapers. A fountain of
newspapers played in ut the window ; water
spouts of newspaper broku from the enor
mous sacks nnd iiigulphcd the men inside.
A prodigious main of newspapers at the
newspaper river head seemed to me to lie
turned on, threatening destruction to the
mis- raMo Pout oflico. Tho Post-ollico was
so full already, that the window foamed at
tho mouth with newspapers. Newspapers
flew out like froth nud were tunihieU in
again by the bystanders. All the hoys in
Loudon seemed to have cone mad, nml to
bo beseiging tho Post-ollico with newspn-
lers. Iow nud then there wns n girl : now
mid then a woman; now nnd then n weak
old man; but as tho minute bund of the

mid sue i a torrent ol newspapers, enme

Shut Seasnme! Perfectly still weather.
iNolioily there. No token ot the late storm

Confessions of a Vegetarian.
I am a rceular downright verretni-ian In.,,
I taste nothing that has been connected with
blood, nud my stomach is ns free from the
flesh of beasts, birds, and fishes, as it is from
thai of my own species. 1 go tho whole hog
without killing bun, and if I wero a snob
should shudder when making use of Ins
bristles. I hnd once some huir bottomed
chairs, but my conscience was so tender that
1 could not sit down upon them without feel-
iug a degree or horror, so I gave them away
c. . l l . .. i . e . , -
.... !, him ui pcacu, auu got some air-bottomed
ones instead. And now, considering
the whole, it may literally lie said of me thnt
I live Umjii the wind. My shoes are made
ofgutta purcha and west of England. The
phrase 'nothing like leather," don't suit me
1 cannot look at the article without thinking
of blood. Shirt and other bullous mude of
bone, I abominate j they smell of death, and
that sicken me. So I wear no buttons hut
those tnnde of paper fnachic, which in reality
are vegetable buttons. 1 burnt my wife
muff Inst week, and threw away a half a
core of kid gloves; and the skin of the poor
dumb animals melts me. I hate tho butch
er with so much real that I could drown
them in the blond they shed, were it permit
ted me to take life. Myself and a few simi
lar spirits are about forming a society which
is to be cn lien the " Anti-devouring Club.
The objects of it will be to save all life, from
nn odder to a rhinoceros, trom a sprntt to a
whale, from a wasp to nn eagle. Persons
are to he employed in the forests to prevent
the wild beasts from gorging upon each oth
er, nnd'divers will be stut into the deep to
tame the sharks and cause the larger fishes
to live upon senweed instead of upon the
small fry. Green, the aeronaut, will he the
mi Ainburff ol the birds of prey in the airy
regions. And lastly, we ahull have nil butch
ers, sausage makers, and rnt catchers tried
for wilful murder, nnd when we havo found
them guilty, ns being taken red funk, instead
of punishing them capitally, we shall send
them to Idilany Hay, there to veiretate for
the rest of their lives upon the esculents
from w hich tho placu takes its name.
What the Pine Trees Suid.
It was a hitter rohl morning; the sun
shone brightly, hut the wind blew n chilling
blast over the now (alien snow. " Come lit
tle boys," said ninminn, "you must go to
Uncle Howard's lor tho milk." "O, it is so
cold !" rxchiim-jd Herbert. ' So very cold !"
"Never mind the cold!" answered nintn
nin ; " wrap yourselves up well and walk fust,
and you will soon feci wnrm."
Still the little boys lingered ; thocnntMnnd
tippets the warm senrlut tippets their mints
had knit were on, and their mittens in their
bands; but still they lingered. - " Run along
littlo hoys," again said mamma, "go and hear
what the pine trees will say."
Arthur looked up; I never heard them
say anything; what will they sny mamma?"
"They nlinost always say something to
me," nuswered mamma. " The other duy,
when I was coming home from Uncle How
ard's they said 'Hurry home fast; little Bes
sie wnnts to see you; so do the little Imys.'
And one very bright morning I henrd them
say, "How pleasant it is! how good God is!
he cheerful, be happy !" Herbert nml Arthur
listened with interest. "Come," said Arthur,
"I should like to know whut they will say to
They hurried out; nnd little llessie watch

they came "to the pine grove.
" J ilon't hear nnything," said Herbert.
1 lie wind Mow through the branches with a
murmuring sound. "I hear something," re
plied Arthur; "hut it is only, 'How cold it
is! 'Run ulong.or you will freeze.'"
On they went: the wind wna liiercinir

ready to cry ; and indeed, when they reached
their mint's warm breuklitst room, the teurs
were beginning to sturl. Rut Aunt Louisa

gave iiiem n inscuit to ent. and Metier than
all, Sioke kind, comforting words to them.
Then with their pail of milk, nnd a cuke for
liessio, the little boys started lor home. The
wind wns now behind them, the sun hnd
grown warmer, and their hearts wero full of
pleasant thoughts. They forgot tho pine
trees till they were nearly onnosite them
Then they listened, and the trees seemed to
:iy," Happy little hoys! how kind everybody
i ! Try to be uood."
They were soon nt homo, nnd with liriuht
laces sat down to wnrm their feet, and re.
count what they had seen and heard.
" And w hat did the pine trees say ?" asked
"O! they didn't really talk." renlicd Ar.
ihur, " but it seemed ns if they wore almost
lining niieu wo weni, nnn tney were nil

" Ah ! you have found out the secret," said
mamma. " Tho pine trees seem to say just
what m in our own heurts. They sighed

Jiranches spoke of siinshino nnd happiness.

A Family of Thieves.
The oldest member of this family of
thieves, und the one most successful in his
thelts, because least watched, is Mattel
tio.n. Hu is very active in the school-room,
sometimes silting on the recitalion-seat with
thu scholars, nud filling his pockets with his
filehiugs, which strange to sny become in
visible as air us soon us he lays his lingers
Ho is n nimble, active fellow, almost every
where nt once. You ran tell him by a vu
cant sturo of the cyu thut ho ulways wears.
His brother, Indoi.e.nct, is n creut fat fel
low. He spends his time iu doing nothing,
and has such a sleepy, stupid look, that you
would never think ha was guilty of taking
other persons' property. Hu is ono of thu
most ui rant thieves thut ever visited u work
shop, a fui in, or a school-house.
These two have a littlo black-eyed sister,
i i ol you would never suspect ot being any
relation, if you were not told. Her name is
MiSLintr. She has raven curls dancing
over her temples, nud is overflowing with
u in nnu nciivny.
She does not stent so much as her broth
ers, and is not half so sly, for she snatches
all she gets, sud then laughs you in thu face
for letting her have it. She is very trouble
some among the little folks, but she finds a
great ninny that like her.
Another sister has light, flaxen curls, nnd
spenks always in a low, soil voice. Her
name is Whispering. You can hardly hear
her Ibotfull ns she wanders around the room,
and I am very sorry to have to say that such
nice, still body will pick pockets.
Most of my young readers have seen lior,
I dure sny, and know just how she looks.
Now, Hulen, Susan, Charles, nnd llunry,
what is it that these thieves steal?
Anger and hate liido good counsel.
