The Now York Tribune, in reply to
scores of lotters from the South West,
declares that while the list of employ
moits seems large enough to afford
every woman who desires it abundant
onployment, It is not so. Every

for it stands hungrily waiting at the

wide open in thle seaboard cities are
thoso of "ruin or starvation."

have yet failed, it is not very certain
that it will not also, under the pres

so far as the method of culture that it
encourages is concerned, the Land

A Shaallow Position.
Some 'would-be philosophers pro
fess to believe in natural religion, and
to entertain, at the rame time, a con
tempt for Judaism and Christianity,
Now since they rejeot the notion of a
supernatural revelation, it is incum
bent on them to admit that Judaism,
and its development, Christianity, are
at least a pat t, If not tlO most impor
tant part of natural religion. For,
in that case, they are facts, feats ol
naturo,the &eal products of man's re
ligious nature, and as such, cannot be
despised. So that whether they be
supernatural revelations, they deserve
consideration , or whether they be
but peculiar phases of man's religouE
nature, they are at least natural, na
mere matters of faet, and must com.
mand consideration. No sober man
can deny so.plain a proposition ; and
yet many &.thoughtless; but would'be
profound philosopher acts, as if it
were nonsene. Christianity is some.
thing that cannot bte ignored, even at
a mere fact. It is either a aupernatn.
ral religion revealed by God, or it is n
wonderfully important part of any
system of natural religion. To mook
it, is to tocok oneeelf.
