Mu. Km ion: The recent rendition in
our city of Milton Noble's modern play,
".Mm Iiludsoe," brought to light many
ot the defects, which, like an insidious
cancer, are gnawing away tho core ot
tioclcty, and undermining and bringing
into disrepute the whole social fabric.
The drama, although not possessing
that polished dress, aud classical word
ing aud harmonious rounding of periods,
characterizing the "Lady of Lyons,"' and
others of a liku nature, Is ueveithelcss
pregnant with the vivid realities and or
dinary occurrence. of daily life. The
author indulged in no lolty flights of
fancy ; his language is that of "a plain,
blunt man," who sought not after an ele
vated vernacular In which to clothe Ids
ideas. Out of buskins and true to nature,
lie portrayed in a homely drcs, startling
truths, uiidcnlablu facts, thus presenting
to our minds abundant material for 6c
lions coulcmpla tiou.
As is the case in all dramas of this na
tuio, Vice and Virtue are placed in direct
aiitaL'onlsni. In tho opening scenes of
the play, Vice holds undisputed control
of tho battle-ground triumphs over aud
holds in passive subjection its unassum
ing opposcr, and llii-dicd with the antici
pation of a llual victory, spurns it.s help
less enemy and derides Its weak defense.
Hut ere the curtain falls on thu lust act,
wo Dolioiu virtue, iieioro vainpiisiieii,
now victorious ; and Vice, In tho opening,
victor, now stripped of his arrogance,
anil the footstool of Virtue.
This', in our opinion, Is the only in
stance in which the author depai ts from
nature, aud accommodates the sequel of
his drama to the evpeetatloiu and gen
eral desire of his auditors. His natural
for thu human heart to incline towards
virtue. It matters nol how far down in
the cess-pool of corruption and Immoral
ity a mortal may llud hhuself, an ardent
yearning for the forsaken path still
blooms hi the moral waste of his putrid
soul. Paradoxical as it may appear he
loathes tho agencies which led to his
downfall, aud, in the sincerity of his
heart, honors aud extols the purcnud no

Now, Leslie Hlaekhurn, I will bid you

"select compact," the refined atnio-phere
of which none but the qualified (?) are
permitted to Inhale.
.Society, you are n glorious faree '. In
wardly corrupt,. you will eventually .pllt
upon the rock ol your lueyltablo fate.
Any organization, anybody, the physical
trameofman, to be denominated eou-li-tullonally
sound, must nccc-arily have
soundness hi Its individual members. I
llrmly assert that "society" to-day, us it
exists In nil our metropolitan cities, U In

ker of corruption is gradually Increasing
thu compass of Its silent winkings, until
ere long the incrcuilal venom will have
harmed the whole body and destroyed
llio ia-t vestige oi Its re.-peetabllltv.
I lie laws governing society, although
presumably stilngcnt and decisive
their beat lug, me. I regret to say, deplor
ably iiieilectual in the attainment of that
wbl 'li should he their sole object. The
Leslie Idai kbunis of the country should
be made to understand that an imposing
physique, showy dross and a glib tongue
are not the magic keys, which open the
doors of .society for their reception.
Let them stand the crucial test. Probe
the records of their lives; ascertain
whether or not their manner of living
harmonize with the rules of morality.
If they emerge unscathed Ironi this moral
autopsy, recclvo them as cherished acces
sions to the. ranks; if otherwise, smirn
them as you would a vcuomou- vmcr.
Another glaring defect, although not
ii3 niateri.U in Its effects as that which I
have mentioned, Is that unjust discrimi
nation, that methodical ostracism exerted
against those whose purity of character,
high Intellectual nnd social accomplish
ments so admirably lit them lor brilliancy
In the "select circle." Hut unhappily all
Indelible mark of disgrace (?) rests upon
their otherwise immaculate lecord ! They
belong to a despised nationality ! Pie
bian blood courses their veins ! Or, per
chance, the seedy coat, unstudded shirt
front, antique dress or last autumn's hat,
are hi direct antagonism to tho fashloiin
ble views of the light-headed Mcl'limsys
of the world.
These distinctions aro unjust. All mem
bers of the race Caucasian are moially
equal. The accidental circumstances of
birth or worldly position do nol bestow
godlike qualities on some, and ineradica
ble marks of degradation on others.
Nationality does not make the man.
Religious convictions do not make tbo
man. Vocation in life or worldly post
lion do not make the man. Honesty, In

salient ingredients of true, sterling man
