The report of the commission ap
poin?ed by the Provisional Governor
in pursuance of a resolution of tho
Convention to frame laws for tho
government of freedmen, was read in
the House of Commons of North
Carolina on thc 24^h. It provides,
among other things, that the freed?

tCxtro. vaga ncc of tbc .Women.
lu an article on retrenchment, a
thing imperiously demanded by these
times, the Charlottesville Chronicle, <
with a reckless bravery unparalleled
in the late war, makes an onslaught
Upon fem?le dress. It declares that
the number and quality of products a
womau has ou her back is prodigious.
It enumerates all the articles of the
female wardrobe with a particularity
that can only bo the result of long
and careful observation. Itsays that,
to rig out one young woman, there
must be an elegant pair of shoes, silk
stockings, kid gloves, a bonnet, which
is a world in itself ; pomade, teeth
plugged, combs, hair-pins, hair-net,
rouge, starch, sozodont, cologne, car
rings, brooch, chain, crinoline and
linen, flannel, finger-rings, fan, brace?
let, watch, collar, cuffs, parasol, and
the main dress itself. Add cloak,
furs, over-shoes, sea-foam, balmoral,
loco, pocket-handkerchief, gold pen?
cil, porte-monaie, brade, lace, cord,
buttons, flowers, feathers, beads,
spangles, ribands, roseates, buckles,
furbelows, tucks, flounces, embroid?
ery, etc.,* etc.
Thc Ch run ivie demands to know
whether women were intended for all
this ornamentation, lt asserts that
one-third of their lift; is taken up in
buying, preparing und talking over
their dresses; that among themselves
the" subject of dress is almost thc ex?
clusive subject of conversation, which
cannot bc true in thc neighborhood
of Charlottesville-for some days at
least after the appearance of this ar?
ticle. It is the opinion of the Chroni?
cle that about one-fourth of tl^p time
of the human race, and, perhaps, one
fourth of their earnings,'arc devoted
to the dressing of women. It is es?
pecially indignan tab out bonnets, and
.insists that th?; Roman ladies never
dreamed of bonnets. It believes that
a respectable female may be dressed,
for one year, for about 815; whereas,
they average about $150. At least
$600,000,000 a year would be saved
to the country by the enforcement of
sumptuary laws, compelling the wo?
men to be economical in dress. In
short, wc should judge, from tho'
Chronicle's article, that
" Man's dress is of man's life a thing apart -
'Tis woman's whole existence."'
We trust the women will now pro?
ceed at once to reform, retrench, pay
off the national debt, and save the
country. Nothing of the kind can
be expected of tin; men. Wc have
always regarded the female sex, com?
pared to the male, ?us a cheap insti?
tution. A man's hat, coat, breeches
and boots cost more in general than
a woman's clothing. Moreover, the
men drink whiskey, smoke segars,
chew tobacco, and cat voraciously.
There arc as many male as Female
spendthrifts among tin; young men
and the young women ol' fashion.
When women marry, they generally
outside the great cities at least -east
off their extravagant follies and other
nonsense; whereas, men exchange
their juvenile wild oats for polities
and other expensive luxuries that cost
the country a good deal more than all
the dress expenditures of the women.
Politicians involve a country in debt
and war, and then? the women arc
called upon to go bareheaded, and
dress like Pocahontas, in order tc
foot the bill.
Wc concur, however, in the vital
importance of retrenchment by both
sexes. Men and women arc both
spending a great d' -,1 of money use?
lessly. There is' a.. immense outlax
upon superfluities, ami unless greatei
economy is exercised, the tunes, hard
os tliey are, will become infinitely
worse. No one should think now ol
appearances. There is ?is much ne?
cessity now for rigid economy as ir
the Confederate times. The ladies
then showed themselves capable o!
self-denial in dress, table and furni
turo, ?ind they have only to realize
that tlie necessity for retrenchment ii
as great as ever to set an example
that tlie men will do well to follow.
THE PRESTOEKT AND THE SUFFRAGI
Brm..-There remains little eloub
that the President will veto tlie negri,
suffrage bill if it readies him in it;
present form. So well understood ii
his intention te-day, that some of th?
Senators hesitate to pass thc bill ii
that body. Many Republicans win
voted for thc bill as it passed tin
House say that they were forced t<
do it by the tactics of tbeDemocrats
who voted against recommitment
They did not wish to be put in ?
position of appearing to oppose ;
qualified extension of suffrage. Who
effect the veto will have upon tb
future relations between thc Fresi
dent and the Republican party is
matter of interesting speculation.
WHAT THE evniEn SIDE SAYS.-Th
statement made in sevei-al papers t
the affect that the President will vet
any bill granting thc right of suffrag
to the colored people in this Distrie
are wholly unauthorized by him.

NKGBOES.-The Constitution of tho
State of Indiana, adopted in 1851,
contains the following sections:
1 'No negro or mulatto shall come
into, or settle in, tho State after the
adoption of this Constitution.
4'All contracts made with any negro
or mulatto coming into tho State con?
trary to the provisions of the fore?
going section, shall be void; and any
person who shall employ such negro
or mulatto, or otherwiso encourage
him to remain in the State, shall be
fined in any sum not less than $10,
nor more than $500."
lt follows that titles of negroes to
property are good for nothing. The
above sections were adopted by the
people of this State by about 90,000
How are they respected? The
Southern negroes are pouring in
here, forcing our white laborers to
wander the streets in search of em?
ployment, and at the same time they
are purchasing real estate with money
they stole before leaving thc South,
thus injuring the property of whole
neighborhoods. The people on Ten?
nessee street drove them from build
ing a nuisance iu thc shape of a
church on that street. Let the pcoplo
wake up on this subject, or tho city
will be well nigh ruined.
Was it to bring such a population
here to drive white citizens out of
employment that our one-armed and
o??ivlogged soldiers, which daily excite
the sympathy of every oue on the
streets, went into tho war and became
crippled for life? .

NEGRO-MANIA.-We have heard an
Abolition fanatic in America assert
that Jesus Christ was a black mau.
We have read a speech of Ralph
Waldo Emerson, in which he declares
that John Brown has made the gal?
lows as glorious as thc cross. Wo
have seen a couple of negroes, as
black as the ace of spades, dining
w?th a couple of white men at a
Slttall table in the coffee room of a
well known hotel not far from Trafal?
gar Square. m In the al fresco balls of
Paris, it is not uncommon to see a
wooly-headed blackamoor waltzing in
"fond embrace" with thc fairest and
frailest of the belles of the demi?
monde. We have heard the whining
of Exeter Hall over the crushing out
of the black-rebellion in Jamaica;
and we have read a recent pamphlet
openly describing and advocating the
blessing and the bliss of miscegena?
tion! But more disgusting still is a
sight by no means rare in Regent
street. -The tableau is composed of a
fair and fragile-looking blonde of
"sweet sixteen" hanging on the arm
of a big buck nigger, wit h a nose as
flat as the head of a catfish, and lips
as thick and leathery as a rhineoceros!

A NEW DODGE-LOOK OUT FOB
"MUZZLEKS."-" Garroting" having
to a certain extent gone out of fashion,
the "clyfaking fraternity" have
adopted a new and more dangerous
substitute for relieving pedestrians
of their'valuables. The modus ope?
randi is tims described:
"Muzzlers" stand ou comers, ap?
parently skylarking among them?
selves. Suddenly one of them falls
dowu and rolls himself against the
pedestrian, who also must tumble.
At first the latter'deems it an acci?
dent, but soon realizes the desperate
object of thc tumble. The man who
rolls against tho pedestrian is soon on
top of the latter, when he is down,
and ?fe quick as a flash places his
hand upon his face, presses his nos?
trils together with his thumb and
ringer, and covers his mouth with his
hand. His cries are thus stifled, and
the unfortunate pedestrian is almost
smothered. Whilst this is dom; by
one, the others go through the man's
pockets and rifle them of their con?
tents. This takes some three or four
minutes, during which time the
victim's breath is shut oil'. When
the muzzlers get through, thc* victim
is so used up, exhausted and uncon?
scious that lie is unable to give an
alarm, let aloin1 pursue the robbers.
He is obliged to lay there a few mi?
nutes, until he recovers himself,
which allows the muzzlers an oppor?
tunity to escape.
