WASHINGTON. January 20.-Tho President's
Privato Secretary, Mr. Worden, telegraphs to
several papers which employ him, that nego?
tiations are pending between our government
and Spain for tito transfer of the Island of
Cuba to the United States, the only material

Tho Virginia Committco have presented to
the Senate Judiciary Committee a memorial
submitting amendments to the House bill now
under consideration, providing for an election
in Virginia. They propose to modify the con?
stitution to such an extent as they believe
would be accepted by tho people of Virginia.
JD connection with which, they say that the
real feeling of the people of the State is ex?
pressed when they declare the belief that the
freedmen of the South, in their present uned?
ucated condition, are not prepared for au in?
telligent use of the elective franchise, ic; yet,
in view of the public opinion expressed iu
the recent election, they believe that the ma?
jority of the people are willing to incorporate
univoisal suffrage iu their fundamental law as
offering an altar of peace, and hoping for a
restoration of tho Union with harmony on the
basis of universal suffrage and universal am?
nesty, and considering that the policy of the
government requires from Virginia a constitu?
tional recognition of the civil and political
equality of all men before the law. They have
in the amendments proposed inserted all the
provisions looking to th tl result, heretofore
deemed pioper by Congress, and have left un?
touched any provisions of tho constitution re?
lative to tho subject.

After thc regular business of the day had
been transacted the society adjourned to.tho
dining room, where a dinuer was served hy
Mr. Butterfield, of which it may be said that it
was thc most satisfactory public dinner that
has been given in Charleston for a long time.
There was an abundance ol' everything, and it
was well prepared, and when that is said about
a dimer, there is nothing stronger that re?
mains to bo said. Tables were spread on throo
sides of thc largo dinning-rootn of the hotel,
and they were well lilied, there being upwards
of one huudrcd persons present. Captain
Jacob Small, President of the society, presided
at one end of the table, and Alderman Olney,
one of the vice-Presidents, at thc other; the
President being BupDorted on his right by
Professor Meier, and on his left by Dr. Bach
man. Knives, forks and glr.sses jingled mer?
rily for awhile, until thc heartiest eaters
leaned back in their chairs, witbdrawinc from
the contest with good tilings successful, yet de?
feated. Then tho tables were cleared of all
save the drinkables, and silence being restored
President Small read the first regular toast
The Day we celebrate-Inaugurated by Charit;
and good fellowship, may it bc perpetual.
This was responded to by tho vice-President
nt tho foot of thc table, and then tho band,
which was stationed in tho centre of the hall,
played ' La Marscllaise."
The President then read the second regular
Ihe Founders of our Society-May wo ever
chet i-h that noble feeling established by them, and
may wc cover be recreant in carrying out their de?
This toast was responded to by A. H. Dun?
kin, Esq., in substance as follows:
One hundred and three years aso the Ger?
man Friendly Soeioty was organized by sons
of the Fatherland, who bad made their homes
in this city of the new world. Their bond of
union was brotherly love and charity. Siniplo
in their tastes, earnest iu their mission of
labor, exact and honest in their respective
vocations, they impressed upon tho commu?
nity in which t?ey Jived some of the best types
of German civilization. They wo~e thought?
ful, practical, reticont. Their coutr;ence was
of slow growth, but once bestowed rarely with?
drawn. To tho duties of lifo they wero truo ;
to tho pleasures of life thoy wero just by their
moderation. Tnoy put their hands to thoir
work which was before them ; they looked not
behind. A century and more bas rolled by.
The Colonial government the pioneers formed
has been transformed into a republic, and
some ot them lived to take a pride in a Steu?
ben and DeKalb, who won the placo of hero
and martyr in tho struggle for new lifo. After
the waving shoots thal adorned their graves
had become sturdy, veuerablo monarchs, then
came the agony which veiled the land in sack?
cloth and ashes
The hour of glory in new birth,
The agony in tho Btill-born.
Throughout all the German attributes of
selt'-rJ.ance, caution, honesty have been
visible in eur midst. Bo true to the memory
of the founders, and never say die.
The third regular toast was read as fol lows :
Germany I-Sweet land of our fi then? and dear
home of our affect iou; though separated by tho
mighty ccean, our hearts e till cling to thee, and we
will ever remember thee with pleasure.
This was responded to by Professor Herman
D. Meier, whose every toao and gesture be?
spoke the true orator, animated by his theme
and giving graceful expression to his own warm
feelings. Professor Meier said :
Permit mc, genthmen, to say that nothing
but the hope of your kiud indulgence encour?
ages me to appropriate to myself, as the most
recent Carolinian in your midst, as a guest
from the far-off shores of the Fat Uer In nd, tho
honor of being allowed to speak beforo this
ancient and venerable soeioty.
I am ouo of those mentioned in tho intro?
duction to your iules, "who emigrated to
Charleston with a view of seeking in a new
country that reposo which their own has do?
med them." Yee my wannest feelings aro at?
tached to her. Bul verily, gentlemen, it is to
tho stranger just landing au itulescribable feel?
ing of comfort and delight to see how Go. man
customs and habits thrive even mid. r tho
moro glowing beams of a Southern sun, rear?
ing, coupled with American life, a tall and
stately tree, which no storm can break, no
dark and heavy clouds ctn bend down, and
under whose fnondlyand hospitable protection
tho stranger ceases, as a natural sequence, to
bo a stranger. Tue crown of this enchanting
tree is tho venerable German Friendly Society,
irs ir mts are stored up in the records of a his?
tory more than centennial; their names are
science in education, sociability in reunions,
hospitality aud protecttoa to tho new comer
from tho soil ot the Fatherland, charity and
nursing of the si.-k in times of trouble and
gloom-each and every one o? these virtues
separately a golden applo of immortality in a
vessel of silver.
Let mo proclaim, thon, <vit!i Uhland, our
dead but un jying Germau bard :
"Ond fra?t man nach der Schuldigkeit,
Ko sch?ttelt er den Wipfel;
Gesegnet rei er allezeit
Von der Wurzel bis zum Gojifel 1"
And DOW, gentlemen, seeing, as I do herc.
Germans and Americans in friendly union, al?
low me to repeat, whit I said iu my "Greeting
to South Carolina" :
..No power can ki'l tho cverpo*erf il live oak
Alw..y.i ou Carolina's sons inherent."
For I view in this venerable society a doubly
crowned live oak of a huudrcd years' growth;
let us drink to this twi::-cro\vncd tree, accord?
ing lo arr?!oui German hirth dav custom :
May it live, thrive, bloom and l ear fruit vet with
the assistance i-f God tor five hundred y> a. a t J come.
The band sang and played the "Fatherland,"
many of thoso prosont joining io.
Tho fourth regular toast was then offered :
Chafes on o.:r L?ome-May the dark ciuuile that
yet ovei shadow tho horizon soonb.> ak, ami tue mol?
low rays ot the sun ot peace bless her with happintss
This was responded to by John H. Honour,
Esq., cue of the Aldermen of thc city, who
spoke iu glowing terms of thc prosperity and
fame of Charleston in thc past, and of tho
bright prospect now before her, in spite of the
darknesa ?nd gloom of the prosent.
The band played " Dixie."
Thc filth and la?t regular toast was then
offered by thc President as follows :
W maa-Th c last gift of Cod toman. A rtinis
tc:imi ancei pent to seothc tho journey on life's un?
certain road ; iu hue. thc sole object of our ancee>
This was responded to by Dr. J. B. Patrick,
who spoke in eloquent terms of the d-.-voliou
and tenderness ol the sex, aud their ennobling
influence upon m?n.

Senator Leslie delivered another speech fo
day, whieh biought down thc Semite. Hi
subject was a bill to chaugo tho county seat o
Barnwell County from Barnr.ell Courthouse t<
Blackville, S. C. His earnestness ot manne
iu speaking, his gestures, his habit of passing
Iiis fingers through his hair, aud particular!;
his cry at iutervals of "Mr. President," wen
altogether too muon for tho usual gravity c.
the senators. His speech waa. however, lie
iencd to with great pleasure. His chief poin
w is that all county seats in this ago s'jotild bi
located at tho greatest commoicial centres
along the railroad and telegraph lines, and thal
tho day was gono by when touuty scats were
to be selected simply because somo wayward
stream ran through it'or because the Indian had
once turned in that direction his quill-adorned
moccasin. Barnwell Courthouse, he contend?
ed, was established more than fifty years ago,
when there were no railroads, and the moment
tho railroad was run through that county thc
whole tide of bueiuess changed its base. Barn?
well Couitbouse, ho said, is dried up, with not
life enough to build a chicken-coop. Four
tilths of all thc OOtivo capital of the cornily was
transacted along the linc of the rued, and urtu
dredi ol persons who livo four or five miles
nearer to Barnwell than Blackville, always
weut to thc latter plac?'to trade. There was
now no courihoaic, no-jiii, at Barnwell
Courthouse. Both wero destroyed by Hher
mau's anny. Thero waa no hotel iu tho
place, neither had tt increased one huudrcd
inhabitants in thu last twenty years. As fur
its ceutial location it was not nearly so central
as iiarkley's creek, where sonic desired to
havei thu conniy wai, established, but tr ere he
would say tb;"t nearly tho only voices heard
were those- of thc lugubrious quadruped* c-alied
'.bull frogs.1' He showed that he was ue>t per?
sonally interested in ?ho change ono tallar,
but tiiat with a view to henelit the groat mass
of the peoplohc waited this bill passed boforo
the county commissioners levied and collected
their taxes for tho building ot a courthouse.
Look at tiie question as they might, bc said,
in this ago it resolves itself into this :
that commercial and business centres
are political centres, and where tho stearn eu?
gine and thc telegraph aro established ibero
will be the markets of thc people and inc poli?
tical centres ol the surronudiug country. Kol
less than six thousand bale s of colton hud been
ehipped. he said, hom Blackville this year. It
was about midway between a.l tho importaitt
places along the hue of lailroad relining
through barnwell County. It was i roo that
there were a few tine residences at Barnwell
Courthouse, the owners or which wero oppos?
ed to the change because they thought ti
would injure their property. That might or
might not be.but one thins was ceri .tin thc gi eat
m '.ss oi tho poor people and the busincspceplo
would bo benefitted. He had been in favor of
submitting the question of a change to the
people ot the county, and a bill to that effect
had passed tho Senate at the special session,
but failed to get through tho House for want
of timo. To do so now, they would bave to
wait a whole year, and in the meantime the
county commissioners would be called upon to
levy tuxes to construct a new building.
The bill then passed its second reeding
without opposition and was ordered to bo en?
grossed for a third reading.
Swaiis, from tho Committee on the Military,
to whom was referred a joint resolution author?
izing the Governor to employ an armed for?a
for tho preseivation of tho peace, reported
back the samo, with a recommendation that

SOUTHERN SECURITIES IN WALL
Thc New York Herald of Monday contains

It will bo soen that South Carolina six per

ZEB SOUTHERN EDUCATIONAL AND
The Baltimore Gazette publishes the last
monthly raport of the Charleston School of tho
Southern Educational Aid Society, under the
charge of the Rov. A. Toomer Porter. Mr.
John Hanckel, tho 8e:retary and Treasurer'
says in his report :
Wo have added twelve scholars and have
been compelled to employ au additional male
teacher, so as to enable the principal to have
more timo for general supervision. Tho school,
although but roccntly established, already at?
tracts tho attention of the community, and has
receivod many assmancos of satisfaction from
the parents aud guardians of pupils. As lo
thc Homo for Boys, it it regarded as ono of the
most comprehensive, far-reaching and benefi?
cent charities which bas been extended to the
South since our troubles. Wo havo applica?
tions from all parts of thc State for admission,
and as soon as thc alterations needed in tho
Homo, recently purchased for this work, are
completed, wo will bo able to moot, to a con?
siderable oxtout, this great want of a people,
whose chiof sorrow iu their reverses has been
the hopelessness of giving their children a res?

Wo have rccoivod moat favorable accounts
from the President of Trinity College, Htrt
fort?, of the ddigonco and progress of tho
young gontlemou who ontorcd Ibero in Sep?
tember last from this school. Anotbor youth
goes on to entor from this school on tho 19th
of January-a youth who has boen with us
from tho beginning, who has studied with
great iududry and faithfulness, aud has ac?
complished in ono year as much as is general?
ly dono in two.
Tho Baltimore Gazette says:
Although tho society has been scarcely a
yoar in existence, it is evident that tho gene?
rous assistance given by Baltimore and New
York has not only been productivo of much
real good, but hats given such eucouiagcmont
to a disheartened people, that tho school ia al?
ready in the way to bo supported by its frionds
at and near home. Tho monthly receipts from
tho piren ts and friends of scholars already
reach an important amount, and as tho condi?
tion of tho South continues to improve, it is
rory evident that thc citizons ot the diff?rent
Southern States will gradually be able to pr??
vido for their own schools. Though gratelful
for charitable acts, the people of tho South re?
ceive aid bceauso it is a necessity, and they
look hopefully forward to the day when thoy
will be no longer obliged to ask for it.
THE GRIM FEMALE.
An Austere Typo or the Modern Betsy
I Prom the London Saturday Review.]
The grim female must be earfuliy distin?
guished from tho masculine women, for they
are by no means essentially the same, though
the types may run into each other, and some?
times do. Bat the masculine woman, if not
grim, but onlv Amazonian, has often much
that is doo and beautiful iu her, as we see in
her great prototype Pallas Athene; but the
grim female pur sang is nover noble, never
beautiful; and the only moaning of her can?
tonee-the only mission she seems sent into
tho world to fulfill-is that of serving as a
warning to tho young as to what to avoid.
Thc grim female ia not necessarily au old maid,
os would appear likely at first sight. We find
hor i f all conditions indifferently-as maid,
wife, widow, as mother and childless alike
and we do not find that her condition In any
way affects her character. If she is born grim,
she remains grim to tho end; and neither mar?
riage nor motherhood modifies hor. The grim
female of novelists is generally an old maid;
but a caricaturo primed in the broa lest fines
and from the outsides of things. She is em?
phatically au odd woman; odd in her dross,
her mode, her state. She wears a flapping
cap, skimpy skirts, and rusty brown mittens
on her bony bauds; she has a passionate aver?
sion to men and matrimony; and she lives
queerly behind a barricaded houso door, with
a small slavey, or au olderly female afflicted
with deafness, to do hoi- work and boar tho'
brunt ot her temper. But sho is always odd
and imf ishionablo, and unlike everybody oise,
and could nover bo mistaken for au ordinary
wninaii, from tho first moment when elie ap?
pears on thu page to the last paragraph of hor
Ono cnaractoristic of tho grim female is hor
want ot any ol tho womanly passion for chil?
dren. Sho may have so much maternal in?
stinct perverted as to bo on friendly terms
with a dog or two, or a cat, or maybe a cocka?
too; but sho has no ro.il affection for children,
no comprehension of child nature, aud tho
'.sublime nonsense" of the nursery U a thing
unknown lo her from first to last. If she hus
chi.drei: of her owu, she treats them in a bord
wooden way that has nothing of tue ideal
mother about it. Hence sho is ono to whom
tho present generation is undeniably worse
than thu past, ono who groans over the follies
aud shortcomings of tho limes, aud who thinks
that good conduct died out with her own youth,
and that it is not likely, by the look of things,
to be restored. In fact, youth itself is the root
and basis of offence; and if she coerces chil?
dren, sho tyrannizes over girls and snobs
young men with a quito impartial baud.
Tho grim female is not necossurily a strong
raiudod woman, or a loamed woman, like thoso
who wear spectacles, go to scientific meo tings,
and are great in tho classics ann tho 'elogies.
Sae miy be of the emancipated class; it all
do.ieads ou ch >nce; and a grim female, when
ot thu emancipated, is a very formidabio per?
son indeed; but sho is uot necessarily one of
tucse. On the contrary, part of her very grim?
ness comes from her intense conservatism and
uucom l'uinisiug eon ve it iouality. Notion?
so abjorrmit to her a i innovation or novelty
in any shape. She doo i no: ho d with any ouo
out of tho "i. arru west groove of respectaba b?
.i Ia, iu what direction shover ibo diverging
hue may g >. A RoniauiBt or a Baptist, a Jew
or au infidel, it is ait oue to hor; euell is equal?
ly dreadful lo h r, and oternoilj f.-redojiued.
Soo is tho Crib, mox Church, w.tliout ia'
laU; as far removed hom Ritualism as sue is
from ranting, and demanding for herself that
infallibility of judgment and aboo.utc posses?
sion of the traill vv.iicu ?he domes to the Pope
and all hts cardinals. Beware how you broach
new doctrines in hor pro -cue. She has been
known before now lo abjure her nearest rela?
tives for uo greater in ?ral lapse than a weak
bjlietin globule.-; wilde as tor auythiug like
graver aberrations, say on tho ape theory or
on tim plurality ot races, or on historical re?
ligion. she baa no toleration whatever. If tho
Smithfield fires i usted ut the present day. the
grim iouvilo would ba tho first to ii.-ut tho
iagois. lt is all the same if sho belongs to any
dissenting puisuastou, part of her grimaces
coming hom uer intolerance, ana her own be?
liefs being simply thc springboard on which
ibo gnni femalo (ric3 her strength with all
new-coiners. She is like one of tho giants or
black knights of oil romance, who lived io
castles or caves, whence Mey pounced liue
tigers on all passers-by. and either wrung their
necks it they conquered, or retreated howling
if discomfllted. Tina is wlia* th-j grim female
docs in her degree. Shs dashes ba all who
arma as tbs first act of the new drama. If her
opponents yield ont of timidity or good breed?
ing, or perhaps, from not understanding the
warlike nature of the encounter, she puts her
foot on them forthwith, aud ignominiously
crushes them; if they defy her, and give her
back blow for blow, ten to one she cuts them,
and becomes their enemy forever after. For
she has not breadth enough to be magnani?
mous, and the one thing she never forgives is
successful opposition. Very grim is she in the
presence ot human weakness, moral and phy?
A grim female has no mercy. She may be
just, but if she is so it is in a hard, uncompro?
mising way that makes her justice worse than
others partiality. For justice can be sad,
even if unwavering; and the grim female is
never ead, how painful soever the work on
hand and tho sentence to be executed. Neither
is she gay; for she is not plastic enough to be
either the one or tbe other. She is run into
an iron mould where her nature is compress?
ed as in a vice, no bursting of bonds anyhow.
What would become of us if all our women
were lake her?
When wo look at her, we are inclined to for?
give all the smallness and silliness which some?
times vex us in the ordinary woman, and to
think that there are worse things than the
love of drees for which we so often reproach
our wives add daughters; that fliilmg-which
is reprehensible no doubt-might be ex?
changed for some thing even moro reprehensi?
ble; and that vanity of tho giggling, coquet?
tish kind, though to be steadily discouraged
and sternly reproved, is not quite the worst
feminine thing ifter all. Surely not 1 A grim
female who cannot flirt nor giggle, nor cry
and kies and make up when scolded, is far
away a worse kind of thing than a feather
headed little pu-s who ie always doing wrong
by reason other foolish brain, but who mana?
es somehow to pull herself right because of
er loving heart. Weak women, vain women,
affected womon and the whole class of silly
women, whatever the specialty of silliness ex?
hibited, aro tiresome enougb, heaven knows;
but unsatisfactory as they are, they are better
than tho grim female-that woman of no BOX,
born without softness or sympathy, and living
without pity and without lovo.
