The Cincinnati Gaxtte says: "The debate

only interesting feature of the debate last
night arose out of an assertion'by the Rev
John Moore that spiritual mediums were or
dinarily thin and puny creatures, whose vi
tality was all consumed by the exercise of
their profession. The Rev. Moses Hull, in
his reply, offered to rit Miss Lizzie Keyser,
a well known medium of this city, against
Mr. Moore in a wrertling match. Aa Miss

We call the attention of our readers to the
communication written from Cottonwood

ous experiment for the railroad corporations
in Kansas to suffer one of their kind to sub

mind in this State, settles down to a condi

business associations, their real relations to
the people as well as their reed bass for ex

will suffer a most serious and damaging criti

That point has about been reached by the

We publish in another column the history

arc giving their attention to the development
of the industrial interests of this country
this great West is deserving, more than an
other, of particular mention, it Is that which
is compostd of those men who invest their
means freely in the venture of introducing
new and inproved breeds of horses, Kittle,
hogs and sheep, into these new places. We
know of no other young State in this Union
where so large a projwrtion of the farming
people arc engaged, with a proper spirit of
enthusiasm, in growing fine stock. We cer
tainly know of none where Mich remarkable
progress has been made in this branch of bu
siness. The exhibition of fine stock of all
kinds at the various county fairs, as well as
at the State fair, would aim pare favorably
with those of the best stock exhibited in any
of the older States.

CrrCTl)(iiTel:cC of the Leaven vrorth Tlincs.1
Boston, Oct. 22, 1870.
Twenty years agor.o face was better known
at the Anti-Slavery meetings, and no man
more freely gave money in aid of that move
ment, than Charles F. Hovey. If a fugitive
slave was arretted in this city and some
were, two of whom were sent bck to slavery
there were a few men who were always to
be seen in the conferences held to devise
measures for defence, relief or rescue. Gar
rison, Phillip9, Sewall and others, still live,
but John A. Andrew, Theodore Parker,
Francis Jackson and Charles F. novey are
dead. Those were the days of Mr Garri
son's Liberator; days when Anti-Slavery
men were mobbed in Boston, in Cambridge,
in Springfield, and in other New England
towns. Persona who were conscientioasly
opposed to Slavery, and who talked against
it on all occasions, were not only personally
aad social v unpopular, but they were' looked
upon as deficient in intellect, and as little
less than crazy. At that time and a few
years before it was still worse no one would
have thought of consulting Mr. Garrison on
a business vuestion, and, had lie volunteered
his oyinion in regard to any mercantile trans
action, the very boys in the streets would
have laughed, jeered and hooted. If yob
were a fanatic on one question you were a
fanatic on all, and if you really believed
that it was wrong to own, buy and sell hu
man beings, then your judgment on any
other question must be equally crazy. If a

the field of that agitation, it w apologiaed
lor, ami explained away, it is wen iar us
. . . t. , . i
now to sometimes reran mis state ot tacts,
if only to show how long a journey the
country has travelled between the Fugitive
Slave Law of 1850 and the Freed mens Saf
frsgeofJ370. Of this man Hovey, and the work he ac
complished, and tte.wfficaee, which lives
after him, I wish to say something. Ilia
name may not be known in Kansas now,
bat Kansas was known to Chas. F. Hovey
while he lived, and. he, poured out his
money freely to make Kansas free. The
dry goods business of Hovey, Williams St
Co., was established in the. spring of 1846,
and a wholesale and retail store was opened
on Winter street. Mr. Hovey took his re
ligion and his principles into the store with
him, believing them good enough to live by
and to be acted upon on all occasions. This is
the reason why his name lives and is still
worthy of being talked and written about.
Hovey did not believe in white slavcnr any
more than black, and every man and wo
man in his employ knew and felt this great
fact. Fair wages were given to those who
worked for him. the rooms in which they
worked were well ventilated and warmed,
and every attention was paid to their per
sonal comfort. At times when the house
had been verv successful, a division of
profits was made with the employees whose
industry and honesty had contributed to
these remits. Mr. "Hovey died in 1859,
but his surviving partners and their asso
ciates have honored his principles by keep
ing them alive. Clerks who served in the
Union army had their positions kept open
f for them and their families still shared
in the division of the profits. But I need
give no more details of this sort. It is a
Christian house, and its cornerstone is
honor and integrity. One of the sayings
one constantly hears-in this city is this:
"Go tollovey's and you won't be cheated."
It Ls knewn that you will find honest goods
at honest prices, and if there are any young
men in our State or elsewhere, who doubt
that honcstv is the best policy, they will
find here one bright and siiece-sful example
of constant and practical integrity. It
speaks well for New England that its hrg-

up on this manly, generous, honorable and
Christian basis. And it is only natural that
this conscience which has permeated the
whole establishment, should be accompanied
by sagacity, business habits and methods,
and good judgment; for a sound and
honest heart makes a clear head.
I have taken the trouble, or the pleasure,
to go through this store; jt is the most com
plete of its kind here, and the largest I have
ever examined, though not so large as one,
at, least, in New York, and if I can de
scribe it so that it will stand out lseforc our
western readers who cannot often visit the
Atlantic cities, I believe I shall do them
a Mirvice. A true picture of such an estab
lishment would have a real value in show
ing how far civilization had travelled in
tlie -way of the collection and distribution of
the articles worn by human lings for use
and for beauty. Only modern times and mod
ern systems "of communication for goods
and men have made possible such great
mercantile depots. With camel", or mules,
or horses, or sailing vessels only to rely
upon, the goods and the purchasers could
not be brought together. Division of labor,
accumulation of capital, the jerfection of
machinery and manufactures, communica
tion by steam, the marriage of art and arti
san, of poetry and prose all that goes to
make up that peculiar combination which
wc call refinement and civilization, is com
pelled to unite, fuse and bloom, when any of
these great, results is acuicvcu. .iui, wueu
it Ls done, we pass it by unnoticed, or pro
ceed to make something uettcr.
Robert Hall said of Burke: " His imperial
fancy has laid all nature under tribute, and
has collected riches from every scene of the
creation and every walk of art," and what
genius and industry did lor Burke, the great

In iroine over this bazaar which would
cover several acres if spread out on a flat
surface we will begin on the fifth lloor, on
Summer street it would lie the sixth if we
counted the basement. The building ex
tends from Summer to Avon streets, and
may be said to be two buildings, inasmuch
as the first floor is only one story high in the
centre, the space above that roof being left
open for light. The Summer street front Ls
of granite, and the only " sign " any where
about the building ls the name of the firm,
cut in stone, on this front. The Avon street
front is of iron, painted white, to resemble
marble, and is airy and graceful, white tlie
other front is solid and substantial.
The size of this north fifth floor is 90 by
71 feet, and the fourth, third and second,
under it, are of the same area. Everything
is brought up here bv the steam elevator,
marked, and lowered through the other
stories. Many of the packages are never
opened, but sold as received.
The fourth flour is a wholesale room, de

styles and patterns to the manufacturer, and
have exclusive control ot inegooiissooruercii

arc to be found here.
The third floor Ls for the sale of plain
dnsa jroods, hosierv, white good, linens and
black iroods. The second tloor is for fine
French dress goods and silks, and for the
counting room and business offices.
While standimr here we will look across tlie
first story to the Avon street building, the
roor being worth glancing at. 1 he space
from north to south is ninety feet, and it is
left vacant to give light to the retail room
below. One of the convex lights or windows
in the roof, measures seventv-one bv fifteen
feet large enough for the floor of an ordi
nary store. Another light istlurty iiy litteen
feet", and there are eight lights in all, in the
roof. All are of the bull's eye pattern, the
patent of which is owned by Thaddeux

plicity in a slave conspiracy and the man

Now wc will go to the first floor, tlie re
tail room. Like the basement, it measures
two hundred and sixty by seventy-one feet,
and is the most handsome, elegant and larg
est retail room in New England. It is now
and always crowded with ladies and gentle
men, tue lormer preuominaung. .ivooui one
iinndrcd and fifty clerks arc employed about
the establishment, so there Ls no lack of at
tendance and of courteous attention. The
room is very high, and has a spacious and
imperial air. There are massive black wal
nut and plate glass doors at both entrances,
and a large vestibule at each, shutting out
cold and heat and noise, and giving one a
chance to turn around, think and look before
plunging into the arena of bright dresses,
Ey colors, fair faces and bustling activity.

are forty pillars, with Corinthian capitals,

The room is divided into twenty
departments. On the west side arc cm-

looms of Lyons and from other silken cities,
and, in the presence of their airy radiance,
visions of all the dazzling beauties of the
past came flashing before us. When our
little girls get married they shall wear, if the
old folks can buy them, vapor-colored silks
which borrow their hues from that shadowy
border land which hovers between the peak
of the Catskills and the brooding clouds.
These boys, who go by the general name
of "Cash,"" are very active and very in
teresting boys. There are nineteen of them
in this room, and each one is numbered, like
the hairs of our head. Each has a till, a box
and pigeon hole, with his number on it,
through which he does his work, and where
he leaves his check whenever he goes
out of the store. When "Cash'
is called bv a salesman he receives, with his
package, a bone check with the number of
articles sold stamped upon it; he also receives
J a paper on which are marked the number of
pieces sow, wuai iney are, me price, me
amount of money given to "Cash" to get
changed, the name ot the salesman and two or
three other necessary tacts. Thie paper and
check go into the till bearing the number of
this particular "Cash"and they remain there
until counted the next morning. The bun
dle department, which is a part of this same
transaction, Ls guarded by similar restric
tions, so that it is almost impossible for a boy
or a salesman to cheat in any way, in the
number of articles in a bundle, in the change,
or in their delivery to the right person. Each
clerk becomes a sentinel upon the other, and a
mistake made anywhere almost inevitably
rectifies itself. The bundle thus made up
arc distributed to purcliasers not only in
every part of the city, but also in East and
South Boston, in Cambridge, Roxbury and
Among the conveniences of this establish
ment arc bells and speaking tubes from each
department to the other. Another fact
worth mentioning, and not to oc menuoneu :
with any circumlocution, is the convenience
of water closets on every floor for the accom
modation of emplovees in every department.

some of the rarer articles. Here are appli

From th Philadelphia Inquirer, Oct. II.
Last night a most interesting missionary
meeting was held in the Protestant Episco
pal Church of the Holy Trinity, Nineteenth
and Walnut streets. It was held under the
auspices of the "Indian Hope Association,"
and was for the purpose of considering the
"Indian Policy" or His Excellency the Pres
ident of the United Ctstei.
Right Rev. Bishop Stevens presided, and
made a brief, address, referring to the fact
that the very name of the organization indi-1
cated its purpose, and could not oat awacen
a great and growing interest.
He alluded also to former attempts having
been made to civilize the red man, and after
rpfcrrin? in plowinc lancnaire to the nolicv
of President Grant, he spoke of the fresh
courage and encouragement which this
movement would necessarily give to the en
terprise and all connected with it
The second annual report of the association
was then read by Rev. M. A. De Wolf Howe,
D. D., and was listened to with much atten
tion. It refers to the fact of the name, "In
dian Hope Association," having been chosen
because of the heretofore apparently almost
desperate prospect of the Indian being res
cued from the rapacity and machinations of
unprincipled men, causing the poor untu
tored children of the forest to say truly, "I
have no place to flee to, and no man cares
for my soul." The organization" principally
owed its existence to the exertions of Rev.
Samuel B. Ilinman, who had been lalmring
among the tribe known as the Sanice Sioux.
The efforts of the organization had been
blessed, a mission house, chapel, school and
hospital having been erected at an expense
of about $20,000. The spiritual work was
also progressing with much success and Rev.
Mr. Hinman had civilized at least 000 of the
red men. In June 1S70, a tornado swept
down the buildings above referred to, which
was a sad calamity They were being re
built, however, and about one-half the
amount necessary had been already con
tributed, although the regular receipts had
been short of w hat was expected. The ex
cellent result of rescuing the affairs of the
Indians from the machinations of the wily
politicians, as proposed by the policy of
President Grant, was comment! on in com
plimentary terms, after which a tribute of
respect was paid to J. D. Cox, late Secretary
of tlie Interior, and his successor, Columbus
Delano, the present Secretary, both of whom
had shown the dcejest concern for the poor
Mr. Win. Wc!h then gave an account of
his recent experience in the Indian country,
which was full of interest ind desirable in
formation. He alluded to the reformation
made by the Indians in the way of tem
perance, their gratitude for kindnesses shown
them, and the unparalleled action of lrcsi
dent Grant, who had been elected by a imlit
icil party, in rising up above the demands of
politicians, and, for the good of the poor In
, dian aling church organisations to provide
for their spiritual welfare. The President
invited aid religious bodies to nominate
suitable persons for agents and to overset;
their work. Politic wa not lo enttrinto
the matter of the apjiointnicnts, and the
agents would be removed by the President
only for cause or manifest want of snece.

tribes "in Ikicotah Territory. This was a finis

most wild and bloodthirsty, although thus
far much success had attended the efforts
The speaker explained the laws of the
United States in relation to Indian matters
in the Territories, and the villanou attrac
tion in the past of funds made for Indian
purposes, which averaged from four-fifths' to
nine-tenths of the whole amount appropri
ate. The President asked the Christian
Church, as the civilizing agency, to coir.e
and aid, and would that Church now refuse?
He referred to the saying of an old Indian
chief, to the effect that if the Church knew
of a better way than the Indians had lieen
walking in it was the duty of the Church lo
teach it. After alluding to the peculiarities
of the Indian race, describing the "sun

A woman's figure contributes much more
than u generally understood to the stylish
ness of her appearance. We do not approve
of tight lacing. Wasp-waists arc no more
beautiful than sensible or natural. We have
always entertained this opinion, and arc glad
that the world at large is beginning to share
it. Tell it not in Gath; but small waists
are becoming obsolete The ultra aristocrats
even now speak of them with a suer, as to
merit only contempt.
A nicely but not tight-fitting corset Is one
of the desidcratuma of the present day. The
Thompson glove-fitting corset Is one of the
neatest inventions of iu kind wc ever re

toa Spanish waist, or bodice, while thebones
are on the outside instead of the inside, with
transverse seams. They have a patent ad
justable back, which goes on almost without
effort. These are manufactured in London,
and retail from $2 to $5 apiece.

thoroughly in earnest, and there will In: no
trifling in thi? matter. The presence of
United States troops near the city Is made
necessary by the open threats of Tammaiiy
that their ruffian shall control the election
as at previous elections, and that tb United

the polls. Tlie denunciation whieh is heasl
upon the President is wholly waited. 1 le is
bound to enforce the taws by all the means
at his command. The constitution leaves
him no alternative. There is no desire to
prevent the most searching scrutiny of the
law bv the proper judicial authorities'. This
isaot'the issue at present. The wW be
tween the President and Tammany affect
the enforcement of a regularly enacted law
of the United States; and they who ?tnerc

the experiment a costly one. JV.'o.i .ilihvr
