characters that do not assist in the working of
tho plot. , But we are not disposed to criticiau as
? rigidly the effort? of females as, those of the'

This sentiment is,unworthy a poet; the mind as
weil as the. heart plain.s sympathy, and there is
j ,. no 8ympathy,b'ut ia ?quality. We noed in woman
the completion 'of our own natures, to-win us by

immortal is, Reserving a great ambition; we need
her puror vision to pierce for us tho mysteries

'.'. physicians or politicians, who, as shamelessly aB
- " HELEN, qnit their sphere. Intellect in woman, so
directed, we do not admiro, and of affection such
women are incapable. She whoac true vocation it is
to write, has some sort of inspiration which ro.
hovea hor from the processes and accidents of
knowledge, to display only windora in all the rango
of gontloncHH and all tho forms of grace. The*
equality of the sexes is one of the.absurd, ques
tions which has arisen from a donial of the dis
tinctions of thoir faculties and duties-of tho mas
cralino energy from the feminine refinement. The
rude sort of women cannot comprehend that there
- 'is a distinction, not of dignity, but of kind, and so
... casting aside their own eminence,' for which they
are too baso, and seeking, after ours, for which
they are too weak, they aro hormaphroditieh die

In tho main, American women aro fro o from tt?ia

intellectual trial and conflict, to that portion of
our literature which they have given us; coming
like dows and flowers after glaciers and rooks, the

after turmoil of action. Wo predict that Miss

In tho absence of more important Paatte'j?, we

by our own special artist (durs?lvtv?) on tho spot.
Our roadors need not fear that it r?e our intontion I
to tire thom with an essay, on "the subjoot wo j
have oboson." For soyoral reason s wo refrain from
BO doing, tho ohiof of whioh la that wo dare nbt
lift tho veil too boldly, leBt wo roveal to tlio eyes of
an astonished, staid, and virtuous public, sights
and scones that Stnaok so oxcesslvoly of tho moBt
glaring immoralities, that thoy can not fail to
shock tho modesty of said Virtuous multitude. It
ia, thereto re, not our intention to rofor, except by
?Allusions tho vaguoat of tho vaguo, to tho extraor
dinary stato of moral, or ratbor immoral, doprav
ity that has boon i brought about in Now York
through t_<y agonoy of tho indiscriminate com
mingling of tho different olasaos of society in tho
many boarding bouses of the eily. ?..<
We will Suppose that tho roador is seated by ?rur
side at tho dining-table of a first-olaBs respecta
ble boarding houBO, No. -, West Fourteenth
6 tro el. Immediately oppoBito to tis is seated a
young and beautiful lady, whom wo regard with
omotions of admiration, mingled with sympa
thy-admiration 'tor her graoo and bowitohing
beauty-sympathy for tb? lovely young widow . ao
rocently bereft of her bosom's lord; Of this wo
aio well* ausurod, inastnuoh n,H Um lady has.bor.
self, on ttib vei*y moinlhg'of thi** day, informed TIB?
. with crystal toara ?n"bor ue'autifiil dove-like eyes,
that said bosom's lord bad a few months ago,
gone to ?abat bourne from Whioh no traveller is

With a f\?cud wl?q sits next, to her. Tho topic of
conversation in the latost Taris fashions, and \v'o
are astounded at hearing our widow referring, in
distinct and unmistakable lahguago, to a lotter abo

Paris. Query.-Is- the lady's husband defunct i or.
not? HUB alto ? busband at all? Did she ever
bave a bosom's ip'rd?'^ ' ' ; ?....li
A little farther off from our float is a young wife,
who has Bden upwards of fifty (50) summers, and
tvjio may oncu have possessed beauty and a set of
teeth, but who certainly possesses neither at pr?
sent. Tbe toothless lady is exceedingly jealous
of tho glances that ber young and simploton-fao
ed husband is throwing ov*er hisp?ate of aBparagus
at the lovely married widow abovo referred tD.
Tho stupid-faocd young husband baa already re
ceived a -- sotto voce scolding on account of
his having como homo on the night previous
rather under the influonco of ardent spirits.
At tbe7 extreme end of tho table is seated a very
fat lady, and next to her a thin and rospcctable
looking gentleman with a grey board. Tho gentle
man witb'th'c greybeard la tho husband of tho
fat lady, tf he fallar*[y, calling a waiter, asks f?
a piece of roast beef,' when Ihe -noa? I? duly
brought, and the following, interesting scone ia
FAT LADY (w'th a slight clovation of ber nae al
protubcranco)-Tina meat is not fit to eat.
WAITER-Marm t '
FATLADY?-I ??y this meat is spoilod-go and
get me another piece.

WAITER (returning)'-Yes, marm.

WATTEB-Yds, niaj-m. Exit waitor.
The waitor returns with tbe melancholy intelli
gence that there is no other animal in the kitch
en-the fat lady indignant, again elevates ber
nose-the landlady still more indignant, Bees tho
expressive noao, and taking offence thereat?, in
forms the fat lady that tho meat is good, and
that she-tho fat lady-is an old hag; and pro
ceeds, furthermore, to compliment the thin
gentleman by informing bim that ho is "a good
for-nothing old loafer of a gray beard," _c. ?te
The guests are surprised and indignant;-tho
gray-boarded gentlom&n grows pale with passion,
and his nether Up quivers a ia FOBBEST-the fat
lady becomes terrill ed, thon uubjugatod-and
sho and her husband retreat in baste from the
table. . ' '
Such scenes as these do happen at times-did
happen positively to pur own experience-in a re
speotable <?) boarding house in New York ?City,
not long ago. r Wo do not mean to imply that there
are no really respectable private boarding houses
in New York City; but we do mean to warn .our
readers against going board bonting in NewiYork
hlindfo'dod, taking for grantod tho respeotability
of the house from that of tho location. .
Far be it from us to cast any reflection npon the
ladies pf tyew York--yijrtuA is.virtuo wherosoover
it be found, and a lady is a lady, be she Northern
or Southern; but we have no hesitation in warning
all ladies, both Northern and Son' >arn, against a
too incautious and indiBdrimina- 'intimacy with
the B wanna; of a d v ?un torees es apd fom ale im p oa tor a
who throng the boarding bonses of kew York, and

THE SILK SPIOEB op SOOTH CABO-INA.-Dr, B.
0. WILPEE, lato Surgeon of the Fiffcyrfiftb Iiegi
ment Massachusetts Volunteers (colored) j gavo
ihe first of fonr lectures npon the above subject,
in BoBton, Tuesday evening. The Journal, give?
the following brief but interesting synopsis: ?
The first of this species of spider was discov
ered by the leoturer, on the north end of Folly
Island, while in camp there in August, 1863, Ho
wound from its body, in ono hour and a quarter
one hundred and fifty yards of yellow silk.' The
next year another officer wound from thirty spi
ders three thousand four hundred and eighty
four yards, or nearly two. milea of the silk. A
singlo thread of this was strong enough to sus
tain a weight of from forty-four to one hundred
and seven graine. In 1865 Dr. Wilder Bbowed bia
apocimen to Prof. AgaBslz and othors to whom the
ape?les was new. Returning to Charleston, bo
rcsumod his resoarohes,>and after a variety of ad
ventures and disappointments, succeeded in get
ting a number of the spiders,.
In the conreo of the season these all died from
laok of knowledge as to their habits, modoof liv
ing,- Ao. . From the eggs doposited, hoivovor,
many others wore produced. It ia the habit of
tho stronger to devour tho weak, ao that out of
aoVoral thouaand poly1 a few hu-drod were MOwa*
The fact, hoWever, waa clearly demonstrated that
thoy could bo raised and Uve through a Northorn

that General Bi-in is a Bopnblloan, and was
one of the strong supportors of Mr. LINCOLN B
I tell you, ray frionda, that this Mea of negro
Huflrago is the one ruling idea with this party. It
is tho reason Why tho Union is still disrupted.
Tho blood of tbousauds of mon ha? been Bbod in
vain, and milliona of troaauro l.avo boon thrown
away to comout, and bind, and bring togothor tho
Statos or this Union, simply becanwo thcro aro* in

Government snail noyor bo a white man's govern
ment, but shall bo a mom-rol cur [laughter],

oxorci80 the samo power. Goutleinun, you would
be deceived vory muoh in tho bolief that thin idoa
of admitting tho nogrooH i ) tho Sou-, burn StateB
to suffrage aroao from any sentimentality on tho
part of thoso New England statesmen. They
navo othor viowa whioh Ho down doopor than tho
ritotoric which they expend over tito ?ardsbipa of
oxcluding the "loyal" nogrocs of tho South from
Buffrago. Thoir intonao anxiety and desiro ia to
havo thom incorporatod with all tlio rights of oiti
aous-with that laat groat right of individual aov
orcignty-bocauso it in the ollimato right of de
termining who shall rulo thin Ropubllo-to mako
thom our ?quain in every point-to insist that
they ehall bo our equals in th.B Qovorumout.
Soino pooplo aro fain to boliovo it ritten simply
from a morbid sontimontality-an abstract con
viction of tbe equal rights of nil mon-and that
every man creatod in the imago of bia Ilaker
should bo ontitlcd to equal rights under our form
of government. I boliovo that any poraon who
imbibes this opinion is utterly mistaken when wo
como to t-ift down to the vory dregs the motives
which netuat.o tho loaders of thin radical junto.
That (hero aro mon who aro led by this Idoa of

But the New England mo?.-Hie men who gov

tho desire to retain in tlielr banda tho control of

of the measures whioh havo passed and aro still

which will illustrate tholr wholo ech?me.' .
American Travellers Abroad.
A vivacious correspondent ot tbe Buffalo Cou
rier writeB from tho auoiont City or Romo as fol
lows. Rotae, liij saya, ia a porfecthive of tourists:
Thro?-fourtbs of this travelling publie aro
Americans. I am always intorested te observo
how tboBO look and bebavo, and I will give yon
the result of some of my observations. Io the
first place, they spend twioo as much .raimoy, man
for man, as the people of any other nationality;
secondly, thoy bring abroad with them by far the
handsomest young ladies. ''The Americans are
Hot out -to-day," I hoard a gentleman say on tbo
Champa Elysees; "I have not-aeon a pretty woman
on the promenade." Certainly the American girls
show finer types of beauty than any I have seen
native to Europe. I remember a pure Saxon bead
at Covent Gardenia queenly English woman or
two riding on Rotten Row, and a vory few splendid
br?nettes of France in the Bois di Boulogne, whose
beauty might lord it over anytbiog transatlantic;
but, aside from these, there la scarcely a compari
son in my mind. With its ?'nil-filled purse and
handaomo women, America, nu inight be sup
posed, is not slow to out a Btyliah figure, socially,
wherever it can, in Europe. There are many
Americans in Paris who entertain dukes and mar
quises at their dinner tables, sod some of whose
daughters (and dowries) even princes aro not too
proud to take pcesosaion. In Rome tho American
circlo is confessedly at tbo hoad of everything
foreign in the social way. Bo furo Lent its costly
entertainments wer*? the talk'of tho city, and
made the cinerary ttas ot tho ancient Romans
rattle with tho trott of toativity. Wo have some
Americans in Eurer? who se?*m to h&ffv come
hither for no othor :>- -poso t-.i_ ,_?? to take np
th-r I accustomed f < I onab.e pursuits in new
fields and witB uuiq .- surroundings. "There is
nothing at Romo ox- : ita society," said a dandy
New Yorkor to me ti other day in nerfoofc good
faith. Fortunately -.his class of intelligent travel*
lora is not very largo, Its members, whon you
meet them, proiesa to be exclusively bored by
sight-seeing; they'Arid nothing worthy their en
thusiasm except the garments of the no
bility whioh may chance to .have brushed
them in spme accidental mooting, and in general
they wish to bo considered as a well droBSod con
gregation of'1 . martyrs. Wo bav? another
small and select class, of. young men princi
pally, who bave been so smitten of England and
everything Enguato ?that America will not know
them whon they got bnck, if indeed they
ga back-for I doubt whotbor a country ao com

The New York Pont, a Radical p. ?or, in spoak

the Post: "If they, havo fair play .?ud die out

them." In othor words, we suppose the 1 _t means
if tlio cholora and small-pox, drunkour ess, star

for thoir riots, weed them out in. consequence of
tho position in whioh their frionda have placed
