Mra. C. M. Scvcrnncc, on taking the chair
addressed tho meeting:
SISTERS, BROTHERS, FRIENDS
Ity tlio removal fmm oiiiSinle, of lier who
lind been chosen as President of our Asso- ;
nation, the duties of Ihnt nlliec, have most '
Unexpectedly to myself nnd most unfortu- j
iintely for yon I lenr, devolved upon nin.
Herly inexperienced ns I nm in tlm duties
nnd equally nnatnhiiiotis of llio dignities of
such nllico, I can hut hopo for your kind for-
whilo I oiler my poor servici s free-
ly nnd heartily in your ncceplniice.
I would gladly have given more tinio and
thought to tho prcparution of something
worthy of the occasion, tint under the prps-
sure of multiplied cares, domestic and other,
the lack of health and vigor, I have not
been nhle to da so.
This will however, 1 trust, he nbiniil intly
compensated hv tlm nid of tho uinnv who
have he en gathered In hiliorttnd counsel with
lis. Our cause is ton hiuli mid orircnt nml
sncrod, fur the intrusion of egotism. This
let all feel, nnd none looking candidly nhout
thorn upon ha rnrnest fares of this assembly,
considering dispassionately the question
meet to argue, hut must ieel that n sd-
coin, sincere purpose, nnd no mere personal
Ambition has called us together. Other Ihe-'
Btrcs nnd times for this liiero are, fur such as
seek them. Jint with the wail of universal
upon our ear we cannot clioojo
turn nside lor such low aims.
It is perhaps to ho expected, and certainly
to be regretted, that n movement like ours,
should seem antagonistic, and awaken an op-
position not alicn;)s over courteous. Intr'nisi-
rally, our chiims involve no antagonism, ami
imply no iiittcriinsa. Wo demand iioiiiIuiih-
ion of tnKriority, Wo nsk no opportunity
to nrrny ourselves in unseemly armor, nnd
swords wild our brothers hut, with the
broad nnd rich earth about us, nnd n richer, J
worthier nature wiihin, we irk only that the j
needs of llio one, physical nnd spiritual, bo .
fittingly met; nnd n generous opportunity
be granted for honorable, and independent J
ustcuanco upon the other; and in no vain
mhilion of man's brief authority, is it, that j
in our deliberations, we urgo ns first and
foremost, tho right of snfl'ingo lor woman. !
For so wide spread is the theory of woman's '
inferiority, so unconsciously, nnd undeniably !
is sho mado everywhere, at the fireside, the !
nltar, nnd on the highway, only tho graceful 1
dependant of another, that in no other way
can we so surely muse her to the proper i
of her individual worth mid re- j
spoiisihility, her individual sellhood, as hy ,
lor her tho rights nf citizenship, the
privileges of Ireeiuen. And w e ask these
lor her upon tin theory of equality, no n- '
sumption of identity w ith tnnn in physical or !
mental nature, but upon tho broad b.isi.i of
her hnmauiiy. What woman is in mental
nature or may become, is not in nny u i-u to
ay, since so little opportunity lor tlcvdnpc
ment has been vouchsafed ,cr. It remains '
for us, nnd for our children to demonsrule I
nnd decide. And herein ire have much todo,
since example, is stronger than precept, nnd one '
com iigenus, successful ellbrt will si-:

Speech of Joseph Burker.
Mrs. Pnr.Mnr.NTt I nm not ccrtnin that I
,,ll have the privilege of being present nf
noble, ter to-day ; and it is on that nccount that I
take the liberty of rising so early to ejpross
,nv thought. My own impression is, that if
n ,llr ull, wm,ie widd speak freely their
own thoughts and feelings, with respect to
nil matters nf importance, the errors of the
world would soon bo corrected, the vices of
society would soon ho removed, and instead
,f singing of the " good lime coming," men
would begin to sing of the good time come '.
The fear of man seems to me to be the
r;iuiu that holds the world in pet pctuni bon-
doge. Men nnd women fenr to speak the
words that nro in their minds. The man
that discovers n truth discovers nlso that this
truth is unpopular , he fears so, nt least, nnd
docs not utter it lest its unpopularity should
come upon himself. Hit sees that error is
in high esteem. Ilo thinks he see through
tlio error hut fears to s iy so, lest he should
bring dow n upon himself persecution. It is
eating the cause- of woman, who have dis
capable tinguislied themselves hy their intellects and
thus conrtiitmg the light of truth that keeps
tho world wh re it is. Ilonce I arise on the
present occasion to speak my thoughts on the
woman s uiglils movement.
Tho first thing that strikes, my mind in
connection w ith this subject, is, that some of
tlio purest, snmo of the best, somo of the
most intelligent nnd lovely characters of the
iigcnro interested in it, luid ptrsons ndvo
the excellency ol their literary labors, and by
their sympathies in (he cause of humanity.

some of the best nnd most intelligent per-
sons, male nnd feinalo some of lite most
devoted philosophers, cannot be worthy of
nny one s sneers or contempt. J here must
be something in it to engage the attention nf
such minds as those to which 1 have relerred
Another thought has struck me. As fiir ns 1
have conversed, it appears to me that those
who understand the subject best, speak of

those w ho riibeulo her claims to equality, nre
not the best informed on litis subject or on
subjects generally. It sometimes comes in
our w ay lo ask those who laugh nt the move
ment in regard to woman's rights, on what
ground they laugh, what reason huvu they ?
If those who take part in this movement tire
wrung ? If the stand wo have taken is in-
correct ? How blank they look ! They can
not answer. 1 hey show that they have not
thought upon the subject. They have their
reasons to seeK ; nml mstenil of iissiirmc
themselves thai they nre right in their posi
tion, they adopt it tirsl, nnd try to find rea
sons nlterw arils; ami when they cannot find
them, they try sometimes to make a a few for
themselves. " " "
I declare that I have heard nn arguments
put Itirth against tho claims of woman that
nppear to have nny strength in them. If
there Hie any I would like lo hear them. I
will tlo my best to weigh them candidly. If
nny person thinks ho has some arguments
ngiiiust the cause, lei him bring these argu
ments before this Convention nud if he does
not find ft man, he will find more than one
woman to answer him.
I cannot persuade myself that there is a
man or woman present w ho doubts hut that
woman has just cause to complain against
many of ihe existing laws. The lady who
spoke last referred to (he injustice of the law
toward woinnn in regard 10 property. We

How the case stsnds In the United
State of America, hovr it stnnds more es
pecially in the istnte of Ohio, in regnrd to
woman and property, I do not fully under
stand. I know what the law is in England,
the land that gave me birth, in respect to
woman, and I know that the rights of women
in Europe ought to be a dear to us as in
The law in England regard tho posses
sions of women, i mean married women, ns
the property of their husbands; and a wo
man who has $10,000 to-day, nnd marries
to-morrow, the moment the marriage cere
mony is over, all her earnings nud treasures
except such settlement ns she holds in the
lian-l writing of her husband, granted before
their marriage, is her husband s. In Eng
land, the law is, "What is my wife' is mine,
nnd what is mine i my own." Ami that is
Ihe popular rule. If niter her marringo she
earn $10,000, this i exclusively her bus
hand's or if she receive a bequest, unless
it is so worded n lo debar his claim, that
legacy too, becomes h ir husband's. If she
should marry to-day nnd die to-worrow, she
cannot will one dollar of the money, not
even to her child. If tho husband die, ho
has tho power to will the property nway
from her nnd her children, and sho can
Perhaps it may he said that tho husband
never takes ndvnntogo of these laws. I
know a cuso in which a husband look ad
vantage of the law. A man had been mar
tied, ho had gone through one wife's lor
nine ; he fixed his rye upon another woman,
nnd by crnll ami fraud gained her hand.
She was a woman of prr pert;;, and was wed
by him on Ihnt nccount. Hhe heenmo n
mother, and ho shortly afterward died.
Whether she had fe ned nnytliing, I ilo not
know ; but some of her friends had feared
Ibr her, nnd had taken llio precaution of so
curing her property lo herself. Delbro hi
death, however, it was found he had hired
n lawyer to insert in this nrtielo n flaw, so
that it was invalid. iSlin discovered ihnt
she was in her husband's pnwer, and feared
the worst. Her hiisbiind nt his death, left
every rent of llio properly not to her chil
dren, hut lo his own relation, only provid
ing that she should bavo the interest so long
ns she remained his widow ! Hut mark!
not long alter his death, it was discovered
that he had given notes lo his relation for
various sum. They collected these and sho
was robbed nf nil. She had no redress.
Sometimes she was advised lo put tho mat
ter into chancery ; but it is not expected in
England, that n chancery suit will end fur
several generation, nud she wisely forbore,
nnd let the matter drop.
These nro facts Ibr which I can vouch.
Tho man who treuutJ this woman so mean
ly, docs not stamr:wlruo in the woild. Hut
tho question is not whut men do, hut what
they have the poirer lo do, uud wo have no
right to tempt men to do wrong, by giving
them Ihe power to do wrong. Had Idles
should he nholishcd. If a law works badly,
that is a better reason for nholishitig it, nud
nil those laws which give to men the right
lo woman's properly, and even the right lo
woman hersellj etitriistiag to them such n
fearful power, should he abolished without
one moment's delay.
But this is not nil. Woman is dealt un
justly with in regard to Education. It is
said that woman has not the same natural
abilities ns man. well suppose she tins hut
one half the intellectual power that man has,
is she only to have one quarter by being
(lentetl llio nilvnnlages ) education? 15e
cause she hss Innlc to begin with, trust we
make it less ? If woman has less intellect
than man, sho should have better oppnrtmii
ties, if she must ho behind man, especial
means suoinii no devised to nuiKC IK r ns
little behind nnd below him ns possible.
n mother has two children, ouo of whom is
weak, nnd the other strong, what docs sho
do ? (Jivo tho weaker one loi-u exercise, that
it may beeomd still wcuk'T? No. She
says wo must make this weak hoy ss strong
as hi brother. Why then not net the part
of n kind mother toward the female portion
of society? I know that lliern are women
present, who would spurn the idea that wo
man is intellectually interior to man, and I
urn well nssured they would make out a
pretty good case. Pit a woman against a
man on this single pond, and jou will soon

There is nnother matter in which every
onn present will I think, feel that womun
has just ground of complaint. In England,
the principle is, " No taxation without repru

munis ijnaiiios, nro not rare, x el woman is
forbidden n voire in electing llio legislators
of the nation. People ridicule her Ibr asking
it. They grant it lo Ihe mere hoy that has
josi reucneu iwciny-one; hut to the woman
of intellect, tho woman of virtue, Ihe woman
of wealth, they deny it! The boy of ai, if
no uiis not leiirtien ine niphaliet, must be
represented belore he is taxed; but the wo
innn, though she be a philosopher, must not
have a voice in the elections!
But again I refer to the husband's author
ity over the wifu. In England, the doctrine
is that Ihe husband is his wile's muster, und
has a right to rule that tho wilb occupies
nn inferior position, nud is bound to obey
her husband in nil things; nud the law gives
the husband a right to command and eulorce
submission, hy imprisoning his wile in any
room in his house, from the garret to the
cellar ; it allows him to whip her with a
stick, (not thicker Ihuti his thumb,) or punish
her with a whip. ) believe thai ihe law in
this cnuntry would not go to fur, nnd I con
fess public sentiment in England would not
ill most communities, tolerate it. Km ih.
law tolerates it. and there ara men wlm n..
it hundreds and thousands who apeak to
their w ivea in tones of authority and com
mnnd, and if not obeyed, would beat them.
or turn them out of the house! I knew a
preacher of the gospel to do this, and this
nan for aught I know, thought he was doing
right for John Wesley teaches that the hus
band shall teach his wile that he is tier
master, and that she should obey him, and
Ihnt lie must break the will of Ins wife, if
she has a will aguiust him, until she ahows
that she is humbled. John Wesley tells the
husband that he sins against (iod, if lie
allows his wife to do her own wny, and con
siders him as neglecting the most impurinn
duties of his household. Hence this preach
er may have acted conscientiously iu the
mailer. The common iuterpreiniiuu of the
Bible, is much the samo as Die law. The
Uihle says thut the man is above Ihe woman
even as Christ is nhove the man, or as Uod
is nhove Christ. Tins at least, is Ihe com
mon interpretation. This is the law of ma
ny cbristiun stutes. The doctrine is not that
il woman he weak in intellect, she must
obey her husband if he is stronger; but that
the woman must submit lo tier husband,
w hether he be the wiser or less wiso ol the
I ssk, in conclusion, for this subject, the
candid attention of all. Many of the wisest
nud best, have given it their consideration.
It is among the most important relorms of
the day. True happiness, I believe can nev
er be enjoyed in the world till woman is tree.

Sicard's New Diving Apparatus.
Till ingenitis apparatus for remaining
under water, which our illustrations repre
sent, is the invention of M. tlo St. Simon
Sicurd, a French guntlouian of considerable
uiecbuiiicul talent. The experiments with
this apparatus were made in France, during
the last mouth, exciting considerable atten
tion, mid proving eminently salisluetory in
Ihe results. The spot selected wus upon the
river Keltic, opposite Ihe luiilge of Urenello.
The cxpei iinenls took place before a com
mission appointed by Ihe Minister of Marine,
presided over by AI. Vicu-Adiuirid Itnudin.
The same experiments were repealed shortly
alter, be line a cumpuuy of live hundred
persons, friend of tho inventor, and others.
A man, clothed Irom neck lo feet, with
vestment impervious to water nnd air, places
his head in a casque, or helmet, nf spherical
shape, leaving no part of hi face visible,
except through two oval glasses or windows,
placed nt each side, and a lunse opposite the
mouth, which is adjusted the moment of his
descent miller the water. Tint closed up
hy himself, the diver is entirely cut off from
the tiir we breathe, which is not supplied, ns
heretofore, in similur apparatus, by menus
of a tube, pipe, or any other fixture from
The novelty and iinporlnnco of the inven
tion consists in the fact that the driver car
ries, in small compass, upon his own hotly,
ns represented in our illustration, the mean
lo supply himself with fresh uir, nnd that he
can thus lie let down, nt any moment, hy
common ropes, free from nny of the pnra
pherualiii in present use for Ibrcing down lo
him n supply of fresh nir through tubes from
above. The vestment nml casque nre joined
together by n band nf metal round the neck,
inspeil nt the throat, forming a connection
totally impervious to water and air. Two
llexibbi tulies, likewiso impervious, come
oiitof the buck part of the casque, nnd nre
flitted into n tnetul box, winch ihe diver Cur
ries on hi back, similar to tho knapsack of
lhesoldier,tbe box containing atmospheric an,
which, passing through one of Ihe lubes,
reaches the mouth of the diver. The quan
tity of air supplied is regulated nt his will,
simply hy turning a copper screw placed
nlKivo hi right shoulder, which opens or
closes ono of tho valve of the box. The
oilier lube serves to pass o(T the carbonic
gas, and to absorb it in a reservoir contained
in the box.
In this apparatus, M. de Grandclinmp, a
fnend nf the inventor, is described to have
appeared before the public, nml to have de
scended in the Sciuo nhout fifteen feet in
depth, there remaining an hour and a hulf
without rnmmuniciitioii with the surface.
I'pon reaching llio holtnm of the river, he
commenced walking about, his course being
recognized both by globule rising to tho
surface, nud hy the cord which communica
ted with him lor the purpose of passing sig
nal. Tho descent was tnatlo in nu iron
chair, lowered hy tackle. On a signal given,
the chair was hoisted upon Ihe platlorm, Mr.
Grnndchamp still remaining beneath. Some
minutes nfterwards, be appeared, bearing in
his hands n lurge stone, plucked from the
bottom, which was handed to one of the
workmen above thou went down again,
repenting tho ascent and descent five d lifer
At the same time, M. Sirnrd lowered into
die wnter his mnrine lamp, fur burning mi
ller water, which, without recourse to atmos
pherical uir, continued to burn ns long ns
the diver remained submerged. It wns with
drawn from the water frequently during the
period, to convince the spectators of its ho
ing still nlight. The broad light of day,
however, prevented nny gnod judgment as
to its e fleet. The previous night, an exper
iment was mndo in a cistern, iu the Inhrolory
of the inventor, with a lump, which remain
ed burning under the water more than an
hour und a quarter, giving a most intense

injury examined anil repaired. Of course,
it is also applicable to all sub-marine enter
