Prostitution and Destitution.
Tlie author of "The Fable of the flees," a
gentlemnn t ho was Imprisoned in England,
tome hundred or more years ago, for having
put too much truth in a sii-penny pamphlet,
laid down, as the foundation of a rhyming
essay upon society, the maxim, that "private
vices are public benefits." The idea winch he
endeavored to enforce was this: That society
other things continuing as they are can uot
afford to part with thnt progeny of human
desires and appetites, upon which the name
ot Vies is popularly bestowed. As he sums
up in his conclusion:
" Ho Vice In Vnrftilal fonnd.
When U'ii by .It-stick lop'il and bound;
NaT, whore the rs-ople wonkl be freak,
Vs norrjisary to ill slate,
linmrr In to mull m eat.
Hum ViRTt'r. can I make nation III'
In splendor: Ihpy that wouM reTtva
A gol-lm air, must lie as free
l'ur Acorns as for Honesty."
There are few people in the world who are
willing to admit thnt their own acta, what
ever they may be, are calculated to work any
injury to society. Their fears of social revo
lution and dissolution usually spring from the
offenses of which others are convicted
whose propensities they are prone to view
with less indulgence than they do their own.
They would perhaps, w ithout difficulty, con
cede that the lojses from strict virtue of
which they are guilty, arc compensated for
by the benefit which accrues to some other
party; yet they would greatly dread the cflTcct
upon society at large should their case be
nmde the basis of a rule of general applica
tion. In the present stage of social philoso
phy, therefore, it will not do to subscribes to
h maxim that looks so much like a paradox
113 that "private vices arc public benefits;"
and yet there are in it so many symptoms of
possible truth that it need not be lost sight
of in that which is hereafter said, touching
what is emphatically called the "Social Evil"
in plainer terms, Prostitution.
In treating of the "social evil," it may be
laid down as an undeniable proposition that
the blame of its prevalence Iwlongs as much
to the male as to the female. Without the
consent of both it could not exist; nnd all the
philosophy nd the world is full of it
which contemplates the weaker sex as the
r-'!( or the principal guilty party, is fnl.-e to
humanity, barren of good, unchristian nnd
bhrburous. The law-of supply and demand is
just its operative and just us imperative here
us in any other avocation. The high state of
civilization which we possess a sense of jus
tice to the material of which mothers and
wives and sisters and daughters are made
requires that the propositiou shall be accepted
it the only basis upon which there cau be
any fair treatment of the subject, speculative
or practical. '
There is another proposition equally true,
and equally necessary with the former : that
the demand comes from the male. The pas
sion, the craving for indulgence, without
which the social evil would find no place iu
tho world, is in the strongersex in God-like
man. The other only yields. It is not until
society has shut its doors upon her, and
other modes of sustenance arc cut off, that
she becomes a solicitor. The base appetite,
the love of evil for its own sake, the volun
tary self-degradation, nnd glorying in her
own shame, of which we hear so much from
a certain style of moral reformers, are mostly
fictitious, invented to compensate for the
ahsensc of a knowledge which they either do
not possess, or dare not exhibit.
What then is prostitution? for we must
get at a just conception of its essential quali
ties belbre we can treat it us it should be
treated. It is a state of subjection on the
part of one sex to the appetites of the other,
in consideration of support of the neces
saries of life. It is an occupation which few
women willingly follow, after having ex
perienced its pains, its privations, and its
humiliations; but it is one from which in
this country except through the occurrence
of some fortunate nccideut, or the possession
of extraordinary force of character, none
ever emerge. Society takes care of that.
The trap-door of the infernal pit, w hen locked
and sealed by the apocalyptic angel, is scarcely
Stripping the trade of all the pleasures aud
delights with which fancy ling surrounded it,
and it becomes a means by which a certain
number of women are saved from nakedness
und hunger, by becoming slaves to the nppe
tites, or. if the word is preferred, Dices of the
men. There are thousands of women in this
city who live on year alter year with the al
ternative, prostitution or starvation, con
stantly before them. A woman without
means, and with a child or a parent depend
ing upon her for snport, can not, unless pos
sessed of extraordinary energies or unusual
facilities, live in Cincinnati at this day by the
labor of her hands. She must draw some
revenue from the other sex, by modes de
nounced as wicked, or starve. Not probably
less thun five thousand females in this city
necessarily rely for their means of subsistence,
in a greater or less degree, upon practices
Loldcn to be immoral. But for the vices of
the other sex, what would become of them?
It it easy to say, "starve rather than sin;" but
let those who prescribe it try it. Charity
might, for a brief period, take the place of
"indignant virtue" in their bosoms.
We condemn all alike: the voluntary if
there are any such and the involuntary. It
will not do to treat even possible sinners with
indulgence. They who are not without sin
are quite willing to prove their goodness by
plentiful casting of stones at the detected.
In anti-Christian Japan, the barbarous people
do differently. She who has been led to
prostitution by want, is holden not to be
degraded. Society opens its doors to her,
and, as a wife, she is permitted to forget the
days of her humiliation. In infidel France,
they do differently. There so lax is public
sentiment, that some six or eight per cent, of
the prostitutes of Paris are Bald to annually
rise to positions in society at wives and heads
of families. But we should not complain,
perhaps, of our own race of men. In Eng
land there have been recently seen symptoms
of sympathy and right feeling toward the
poor despised slaves of the streets; and even
in America, although Uttla beard amid the
tirand bustle of tilings material, there art
charities already awake, and needing only
knowledge of the right way to expand into
activity. - i . t ' t
Thi Gazette accuses the . Commercial of
treating its readtrt to "several columnt of
dead Sheriff's tale adveratlMmenta."
If not deemed impertinent, we should like
to ask: Do dead Sheriff's tale advertisements
come under the head of "pleasant reading" or
if "pertonalgostip?" i
Twi rttj election Is at hand; sn election
mort important to this city than those of the
State and nation put together. We have a
City Council whose corruption Is offered In
tho Legislature by our own Democratic rep
resentatives, as evidence that it it unfit to
govern; and upon the evidence, a Republi
can Legislature has taken the most. Impor
tant part of the administration of our city
affairs out of the Council, and placed it where
it can not be reached by the popular elec
tions proof that its corruption is accepted
ks an established fact by both parties,
- We have a city of the Most auaguiricent
enterprises, of taxes w hose munificence will
not be questioned, of railroad subscriptions,
wharf purchases, park purchase, and great
"breathing place"' projects, which count by
millions of dollars, but in which the excre
tory filth of the w hole city flow into the
streets, and stajmatee upon the surface for
want of sewer in which every street has the
same generous stink, which smells to heaven;
which a Kind native would ideutify after cir
cumnavigating the globe, as soon as he struck
the pavement, and which, as General Jack
son said the blessings of government ought
to le. is. like the dew of Heaven, distilled alike
upon the poor and the rich. In our city en

diamond pins, with our bare feet in the mud,
A pestilence is due the city every summer
from its own negligence of the ordinary mu
nicipal provisions for cleanliness; while it
seems to be taken for granted that every city

With this condition of ufluirs upon us, the
annual city election is at hand, and how do we
find the political parties preparing for the
emergency? The Democracy are going Into
it with their ancient regular test. Is he a
good, working Democrat? That is, will he
use his position to throw nil the possible pub
lic plunder into the hands of Democrats?
While the only question that agitates the
Oppositiou is whether they can adjust
the balance of candidates so nicely a to
"fuse" on them. The public welfare is, to
them, reduced to a nibbling hero from the
American faction, und there from the Re
publican faction of the Opposition, to pre
vent any preponderance of cither, like the
monkey adjudicating on the fusion of thecals
on the cheese question.
Iu the name of this long suffering city, so
great in business enterprise and prosperity,
is there no motive that can reach the people,
Inyher than the scramble of parties for the
coniniou pluuder? And ure the working
men, the business men, nnd the capitalists of
the city for their interests nre all identi
cal going to sit down quietly und allow
this great municipality, with interests
more important than those of some
of the sovereign States, to be perpetually
made the mere foot-ball of scrambling parti
sans? There are plenty of men in this city,
honest, capable, having the confidence of the
leoplc, and willing to servo the public zeal
ously, but who will not seek public positions
through the dirty means of party machinery.
Let the party machinery be put down, then,
and let men be brought forward in its stead
men who stand on their own character and
merits I The responsibility is with the peo
ple, but the case demands immediate action.
Tho party machine grinds its grist regularly,
requiring only a few manipulations to work
it, w hile to overcome it will require a prompt
movement of the people.
One of the curiosities of political litera
ture is the delicacy of phrase with which
Republican doctrine is now laid down. But
a little while ago the Republication laid its
paw upon the Territories and shook the hills
with its roar of defiance to slavery; but with
the approach of a Presidential election, its
voice is toned down to the soft note of the
tucking dove, and the most gingerly phrase
is required to express its harmiessuess nnd
innocence. The trumpet which now sounds
the Republican charge, is required to give
forth a doubtful blast, which may be inter
preted as a mortal and radical defiance, or as
a soothing conservative note, to put chil
In noticing this Interesting feature, we
have been a humble inquirer of the Gazette
after Republican doctrine; that journal having
undertaken to expound it. The process by
which we havlinally extractcd a plain defi
nition of a very simplo point was a little pro
tracted. The indispensable requisite for a
Republican candidate for the Presidency was
that "he must come fully up to the stundard
of uncompromising resistance to the exten
sion of slavery into any territory where it iB
not now established by local law." Our in
quiring turn of mind has ut length druwn
from the Gazette the declaration that shivery
is not now established by local law in any of
the territories of the United States, and can
not be so established at all; therefore the
Gazelle' e indispensable requisite would be
the same as uncompromising resistance to
the admission of another slave State from our
But Mr. Bates especially repudiated this
doctrine in his semi-official declaration of
principles in the St. Louis Democrat; and
iu his last letter he declared that new States
should be "the sole judges of their Constitu
tions;" yet the Gazette says Mr. Bates comes
fully up to the standard.
Furthermore, the Gazette says it would not
be in favor of Congressional interference with
slavery in Cuba, in case of its annexation, if
"its continuance were guaranteed by express
stipulation;" but it "would oppose in advance
any possible annexation encumbered by such
This is very well, although it has but little
resemblance to Mr. Bates, and if this is con
servative Republicanism, we would be thank
ful if the Gazette would define radical Re
publicanism. But how much shorter the cut
would have been to Republican doctrine if
the Gazette had declared at first, what it has
come to through much tribulation that Mr.
Bates, if be wants the Republican nomina
tion, must come fully up to the standard of
resistance to the admission of another slave
State, out of our own territory, and to any
annexation of slave territory, even ot tuba,
with a stipulation against Congressional In
terference with slavery. Do we understand
that the Qexette holds that Mr. Bates comes
up to Its Republican standard, as now de
. Wiu. the Gazette inform us if Mr. Bates
declares sound Republican doctrine when he
says of the Territories: "The nation Is su
preme over them, and the National Govern
ment has the power to permit or forbid
slavery within them." And is this "per
mit" by action or inaction of Congress? Iu
short, dees Hr. Batej . mean that Congress
can by enactment permit or establish slavery
in a Territory, and is that Republican doc
' Tns Cleveland Tlain Dealer says that the
way for tho lomocracy to escape yellow
fever, pestilence, fcrulne and hotel robbery at
Charleston, Is to nominate Douglas at the
It isdifficnlt to see what there could belli
the case that would require this desperate
remedy, and we doubt if the Vlain Dealer
has not fallen Into the common mcdiral error
of prescribing active treatment, when the
operations of nature are all that is needed
for the cure of the patient. If a gathering of
ten or twenty thousand of the npei-ators of
the Democratic party at Charleston should
be visited by "yellow fever, pestilenco and
famine," the country will not fail to see the
band of Providence In it; and the hotel bills
arc full of consolation, for the depletion of the
party at the nomination will have a most
purifying effect on the elections.

A communication was handed in by Mr.
Harrison, stating that the Eleventh District
School-house was unsafe, and should not be
continued in use as a school-house. The tim
bering was considered too light to bear the
vibrations incident to the motions created by
so large a number of children on the several
floors. Besides this, it was stated that the
side wall was badly split. The communica
tion was signed by L. Schwarz, D. B. Uuion,
Wm. Stevenson, W. M. Cameron, Wiu. H.
Stewart and Daniel Dork, who were called
upon to examine it by the proper Ward au
thorities. Mr. Harrison stated that the children had
not been permitted to eutcr the old school-
house yesterday morning; and asserted that
lie thought it likely sufficient accommoda
tions for the seven hundred children tin, s dis
placed might be secured at a rent not oxeced'
ing $50 per month, and moved that the trus

which a communication was read from
Thomas Gilpin, Rnfus K. Paine nnd Daniel

which was published a few dnvs ago from
these persons, stating that they had examined
the building from top to cellar, and found no
just cause for alarm.

uext meeting of the Board. Carried.
A motion was made that the Committee
on Fuel be instructed to furnish one hundred
bushels of coal to the Thirteenth District, and
two hundred bushels to the Third District.
Mr. Harrison reported that the Committee
on Text Books were in favor of the adoption
of W. B. Smith s new music book, The
Young Singer, in the C D grades.
Mr. Armstrong thought the book contained
much mutter useless to children iu D grade,
who would be compelled by its adoption to
pay a higher price than they would need to
do for a book as fully suited to their wants,
though less voluminous.
Mr. Stratton moved that the book be ac
cepted, but with the proviso that no child be
expected to possess the book who can not
read easilv in the second reader.
Mr. K. K. Payne offered a resolution that
the Building Committee be instructed to have
the school-house now being erected on the
Runner lot, so built as to conform with the
anticipated change of McFarlund-strcet, which
was adopted, and the meeting adjourned.
Addiiess to tub Workinomex. The Com
mittee on behalf of the Trades Union of this
city publish the following address to the
workingruen, urging the necessity of nppoinU
ing delegates to the next meeting of the
Union. The Committee suys:
''We are sorry that past experience hus
taught us the necessity, anil the conviction is
forced upon those w ho depend upon their
labor for the support of themselves and fami
lies, thitt they must unite to resist the en
croachments of capital and monopolies. For
that purosc several trades have already or
ganized protective Unions. Experience lias
taught us, however, that no trade, even
though organized, can protect itself, if all
other trades are not also organized, and co
operate. For the purpose of achieving a
general Union, or co-operation of the ditler
eut trades, a meeting of the delegates of
trades organized was held lust Friday even
