the messsge from home had been the
most ordinary of enclosures. His
treachsrous fiiend must die; but in
dying he must be compelled to en
dure agonies as lingering as tnose
oe had inflicted ; and while the self-
appointed minister of justice followed
his usual avocation he planned the
revenge that should be worthy the
wrong. When' the next stock of
furs was packed for transportation
down the liver, the avenger made
some excuse for a brief visit to Fort
Benton, where he procured of a law
yer the execution ot a will, leaving
the testator's name blank.
Then returning to the lanche, he
proposed that instead of going down
the river for their market, this time
they sould go overland together on
horseback to Fort Kearney, intercept
the boats with their stock where the
River Platte empties into the Missou
ri, and take the furs up the former
stream to Fort Laramie, where they
could establish a kind of enterpot of
their business to probablo great ad
vantage. The idea seemed so plaus
ible to the younger man that he ap
proved it without hesitation, and
started immediately with the projec
tor on the ov.rland journey, accom
panied only by a pack-mule bearing
provisions for the way. Traveling
many days in this style the one
who.ly unsuspicious of the other's
dark purpose the two men finally
reached the banks of the rlatte.down
which they followed the overland
trail to a place called Bernard's
Ranche, on the North fork of the
stream, near the "Chimney Kock,'
and between Julesburg and rort
Laramie. Here they paused' to rest,
and I ere, in a deep canon, walled by
lofty rocks, and lonely in immemori
al, gloomy solitude, the doomed man
was persuaded to take a noonday
sleep from which the awakening was
to be more terrible than the most
guilty dream. Drugged by liquor
which the otber bad given him, in
seeming convivial banter before be
slept, the doomed traitor awoke to
find himself securely chained, hand,
foot and neck, to a great rock, while
before him, with eyes aflame with

courage, auu returnea tne glare 01
bis partners eyes with a ghastly
smile ; but when that partner pro
duced from his pocket the mid-winter
letter, and read it deliberately word
by word to the hollow echoes of the
gloomy canyon,the smile disappeared
in a look of deep despair. He con
fessed all, and asked to be shot, but
the brother had another fate in store
for bis victim. Coolly encamping by
the rock, he sat down to see his part
ner starve to death. On the third
day the ill-fated man signed the
deed bequeathing all bis property to
the injured girl, and the brother at
tached a fictitious came as witness
of the instrument, by the terms of
which be was msde .the executor of
his partner's estate. He then wrote
letters saying he had fallen very ill
of fever on the plains, and if he did
not recover these letters would be
delivered by his beloved partner. All
this the infuriated brother compelled
the man to do, and then quietly
awaited the end- Day by day the
partner grew weaker, and the brother
gloated over his misery, often read
ing to him the letter." So chained
to the rock, suJering untold tortures
of hunger and thirst, and with the
mocking cries of his executioner and
the words of the letter ringine
natcly in Lis ears, this modern

Suffrage will not Unsex Woman.
No facts are adduced to support
the assertion that suffrage will unsex
woman. If woman's virtne is the
same as man's in its nature, if she
sails the same rough sea that he does,
how can it be that the motives which
ennoblehim will debase her ? Against
the charge that public labors unsex
women, I can array a column of facts.
I lead you into the school-houses
where delicate women chafe their
lives out against the roughest ele
ments in the community are these
teachers, as a class, masculine, coarse,
unfeminine ? From Aspasia to Anna
Dickinson has the sez ever been dis

men who walked among the hospi

Orient, to the ladies who left the
refinement of New England ; ask the
wives of your missionaries if they
have been unsexed by their labors.
If woman can wash the dirt from the
Arab of your streets, if she can edu
cate your children, I submit she can

THE SOCIETY OF FRIENDS.
We have always desired an au
thentic statement of the present nu
merical condition of the Society of
friends, Orthodox, liickaite, Wilbur-
ite, Progressive, die. William Wood,
in the Friends' lieview, gives some
figures which are interesting so far
as they go. The present total mem
bership of the Orthodox Meetings is
57,405, being a gain of 755 in twen
ty years. During these years the
membership of the Meetings east of
the AUeghemes has decreased 1,111,
while those meetings at the West
have increased 8,477, so that actually
there has been no general increase
worth -considering. The rew Eng
land Yearly Meeting has, after an
existence of overtwo hundred Tears,
only 4403 members ; the New York,
established in 1695, has 2853 : the
Philadelphia, established ia lGSl.has
550 ; the Baltimore, 600 ; the North
Carolina, 4000. The Western meet
ings are much larger. Ohio Meeting
was only established in 1812, and has
a membership ot 2855 ; Indiana,
(1821) has 17,200; the Western,
(1857) has 9449 ; Iowa, (1863) haa
8599. The increase at the West of
the Society of Fiiends must le at
tributed mainly, we suppose, to emi
gration, as the Eastern loss and
Western accessions just about bal
ance each other. We do not know
upon what data these statistics have
been arranged. A good many peo
ple with no particular love of Quaker
peculiarities, remain in the "Meeting"
because they were born in it; and
they do not feel sufficient interest in
religious differences to abandon their
old associations. At the same time,
tbey are pretty sure of not being
"disowned.'' The general discipline
has been greatly relaxed, especially
as regards costume, language and
education. The leading doctrine of
the sect is no longer distinctive, but.
divested of its religious form, has
been admitted to a place in modern
systems of intellectual and moral
philosophy. A constant tendency to
secession has weakened the lie of
membership it is no longer a seri
ous matter for a Quaker to be ''dis
owned." The inclination for formal
ism, which ia a marked peculiarity of
Quakerism, has borne its legitimate
fruits, and we find a religious society
which was organized aa a protest
against the letter among the least
flexible of literalists. Still, we would
not have the reader suppose that we
say these things without a reverent
recollection of the noble services ot
primitive Quakerism in an age of ec
clesiastical formality. Al Y. Tribune.
Ah interesting example of the way
in which the liberal divorce laws ot
Indiana sometimes operate is given
in a Louisville paper. A woman in
Indianapolis was in poor health, snd
fearing that in case she should die
her husband would obtain control of
certain property that she possessed.
she visited her sister in Louisville,
Kentucky, in order to carry out
a scheme which she had projected to
prevent it. While staying with her
sister she croesed the river to New
Albany, where she rented a house ior
three months, and on this transaction,
based a residence there. She then
instituted a suit for divorce, after
which she returned to her husband
in Indianapo'is. About a year ago
she received a telegraph dispatch re
questing her immediate presence in
Louisvule tn consequence or illness
in her sister's family, and showing
this to her husband, he readily con
sented to a second visit to that city.
At this time she again went over to
New Albany, where she received her
decree of divorce, which she put in
her pocket and carried nome. it is
possible that the husband would have
never known what had taken place,
at least during her lifetime, had he
not excited her ire by insisting one
day too much on his own way as the
head of the family : npon which she
very curtly informed him that he need
not try to tyrannize over her, ss she
waa not his wife, at the same time
producing Ite document to prove
her assertions. The husband was
more than astonished : but he insists
upon It that such a divorce as that
will never stand, in which opinion he
is probably about right.

THE FISK-MANSFIELD LETTERS.
Fisk Declares his Repentance.
These are the letters of a man in
fatuated by a siren bent on leading
him to destruction. They are not
what a prurient pnblic expected.
Fisk fought hard to prevent their
pnlilicatiou. and save Ins enemy
$15,000 that Li shame might not be

evident that he did tot write them
they were penned by a better scholar
For a long time certain of Fist's im
mediate friends strove earnestly to
induce him to publish the letters him
self. He refused.
"Von may laugh at me, but I tell
yon I can't put up on a sign-board
some of the purest thoughts that ever

It was most uefcrtunate that Fisk
changed his mind again, thereby los
ing an opportunity to present himself
in a far better light than any in which
the public had yrt viewed him.
There is no doubt that at this time
he had resolved to turn over a new
leaf and become a better man.
The tides polity and wash the
shores, clearnug atd sweeping our
poits ; the curiect, which result
theretrom, ditcccumber our road
steads cf the masses of mud which
load them, clear the mouths of rivers,
and moduce a pure and wholesome
freshness. These undulations of the
ocean, these powerful pulsations of
the water, aie influenced by stars
which are separated from our planet
by millions of leagues ;.nor have they
less mathematical regulaiity than
that which directs those planetary
bodies themselves. At a fixed hour
the formidable masses of watertraised
by en invisible power, raise and ap
proach the shore. They rise, they
precipitate themselves with resistless
power, but only to etop gently at the
precise moment, without ever pass

traced. It is surely an honor to the
human iaec to have succeeded in cal
culating the very hour, nay, the ex
act minute, in which the cecillations
ot the sea begin and end in every
part of our globe. Nevertheless, as
yet unknown combinations will, at
times, produce terrible disasters that
cannot be avoided by any foresight
or precaution. Thus, occasionally, a
powerful wind happens to blow in
the same direction with the tide, and
gives it incredible force and fury.
No lofty embankment reared by the
hand of man, no rocky rampart raised
by Nature herself, can then withstand
its power; and towns are swept
away in an instant, and thousands of
persons lose their lives. In some
parts of the globe the tide produces
remarkable effects from the peculiar
formation ot the coast which it
strikes. The most striking instance
is that of the island efMuritiusJ
where a long rocky promontory runs
far out into the sea. and has been
worn by the waves into numerous
caves and grottoes ot marvelous
beauty and grotesqueness. The
waters have lorced lor themselves an
outlet through the roof of one of
these caves, and when the tidal wave
reaches the coast it mis the cave.anu

It seems a pity so many of the fine
school hcuses ia t.e wts, where
land is plenty and cheap, should be
built to the towering bight of five or
six Etorics, compelling young girls to
do a great deal of unwholesome run
ning up and down stairs, injurious to
theirpbysicial constitutions, and often
times resulting in the chronic disor
ders peculiar to the sex. We have
seen many of these institutions which
look like a Webster's Dictionary
standing on end. Why not, instead,
build them after the model cf the
dictionary 1 ing flat? The bnildiog
committee should broaden their found
ations and decapitate their towers.
Two flights of stairs, a first and sec
ond story, is all that should ever be
seen in a school house particularly
a school house frequented by girls.
But there seems to have teen an am
bition in the West to make the school
house a sort ot town monument
visible for a dozen miles across prai
ries ot Illinois or Minnesota. The
western school houses are in most re
elects tar superior to any others in
the country. Tbeir detect is their
undue height. This objection is seri
ous. We know, frem personal in
sped ion, that the fault ot which we
speak is beginning to show itself in
the weariness of scholars and teach
ersnot the males but the females.
Otber new houses are to be erected
in various parts of the western slates.
Our suggestion, we think, is worthy
of grave consideration.

THE OLDEST MAN.
Several of Webster's cases reached
nearly the age of 200, and many of
them survived their 130th year as to
give some color of probability to
what is said concerning 'old Pinao,'
who died a few weeks ago in Kansas
city. Neither he nor his neighbors
pretended to know exactly how old
he was, though nobody doubted that
he was the oldest inhabitant. People
sixty years old and more remembered
him as a gray-beaded old man when
they were children, and none of those
who knew him seem to doubt that he
was at least 134 years old. His proper
name was Jacob f ournais, and he
was a French Canadian by birth. A
French paper of Montreal, the Opin
ion J'ublique, gives an interesting
gffiSt-&fiim- The writer says
that when he firaTTSMrPie acquainted

a late hour one night lately, and
thinking to give his landlady a sensa

red keel. He w alked into the sitting
room and had taken a seatby the fire
before the spots were noticed. The
landlady, all absorbed, looked np
from her work in a moment, and no
ticing the spots on his face, asked, to
evident alarm : "Why, Charlie, what
