To roio out on the even.

Oh. many a heart is mourning
That they arc with the dead.
Like the brightest buds of summer.
They have tallcn with the Mem;
Yet. oh it is a lovely death
To fade from earth like them I
And yet the thought is saddening
To muse on such as they.

Dr. Alfrcdtloolh, in his reminbeences of
Springfield, gives this rare account of a
rare man of muscle in the last century,
Deacon John Hitchcock, grandfather ofthe
living Mr. Levi Hitchcock, of Springfield :
"Horn in 1722 in the North Main street
regioD, he moved, while a young man, into
the eastern part of the town, now known as
South Wilbraham ; married in 1713, and
was the tirM deacon of the church there,
continuing in office many years. He is well
remembered by Hon. Oliver 15. Morris as
occupying the deacon's seat at meeting", his
whitened locks giving him quite a venera
ble appearance. During a long life he was
of wonderful strength, agility and endu
rance, and had he lived in the palmy days
of Greece, he would have been a worthy
competitor in the games of those days. It
is related of him that on one occasion a
man riding by the field where he was at
work, and boasting of the speed of his
horse, was challeged by the deacon, who
said he could run to Springfield quicker on
foot than the horse with his rider' could.
The lest resulted in the triumph of the
dese-in ; distance ten miles ; time not statu!.
He would lilt a cartload of hay, hy getting
his shoulders under the axle in a stooping
pniture, and thioiv .rn empty cart over with
one hand, by diking hold of the end of the
axletree. When loading grain in a cart,
he would take a bag by the teeth, and with
a swing and the aid of a push from the
kner, throw it into the cart, lieliid dou
ble teeth in front, and would hold a ten
penny nail by them and break it off with
ids lingers. He used to say he did not
know a man lie could not whip or run uway
from. The day he was seventy years obi
he remarked to his i ife that when lliey
were lirst married lie tras wont lo amuse
her by takiui; down his rial with his tots,
and addeJ, '1 wonder if I could do it now !'
ThereiiiHMi he jumped from the floor, took
oft his liat with his toe's, came down on his
feel like a cat, hung up the baton the nail,
turned to the table, asked a-blessing, and
ate of the repast then ready."

COLOn IN TIIE NEW YOIfK SOnOSIS.
The question of color has cot into the
,Jew lork borosis. A prominent member
oi the society, at ihe last meeting, ottered
a resolution that all women, of any nation
or color should be elicible to membership
Whereupon another member opposed' it,
and said sho would, perhaps, not object
(and. was not quite sure in her mind yet) lo
receiving into lellowslnp an intellectual
and accomplished woman of color, but she
wa not prepared to consent to her admis
sion because of her color. As well might
they particularize the Chinese or Mongo
lians, as. to specify womca of color. She
did not approve of bailing for women of
any color or condition to otter themselves
for membership. The protesting sister's
remarks created a hubbub, and for a few
minutes the gcntleasiociation, in confusion,
rivaled a Iladical convention. But harmony
was soon restored by voting down the ob
the rr.orK size of a lady's foot.
Hoots, ladies' boots, are the subject of a
letter from Air. Jiauomi to the Xiondon
jsuuaa a strange medium lor such a
topic, by the way. He has been measuring
the foot of the Venus de Medici, or rather
(it amounts to the same Hung) ot an accu
rate cast of the statue. The erect height
of the figure is, as is well-known, five feet
two inches, and he finds the length of the
foot to be exactlv nine inches, or as nearly
as possible one-seventh ofthe height. The
breadth of the widest part of the sole is
three and three eighths inches, a fraction
over one-eighteenth of the figures Blature.
l'roni these data, and a knowledge of her
height, every lady can determine the size of
lier boots ; she may exceed the dimensions
given in the formula if she sees ht, but woe
to her health,' and, according to Mr.
Bouomi, good-by lo the symmetry of her
pedestals, if she tries lo squeeze them into
anything less, lint docs the enus, or any
other idealization, represent every case of
the humanity it typifies .' lf,as is certainly
the case, rome feminine extremities exceed
the sculptor's proportions, others as cer
tainly fall within them; and it is hardly
likely that the possessors of these will wear
hoots too big for them merely for the sake
of conforming.to a fancy standard. .

wriiee from Aix-les-Bains, Savoy : ''Let me

a patient at Aix for one day. I will take

nto a sort of sedan chair, which is a scat

ngcuitains. The lady finds herself snd-
enlv shrouded in this veil aw and red-
stripped drapery, like an Eastern Princess
on her travel'. You are taken oil' by the
official porters downstiirs, through the
Btreets until von get to the watering es
tahlishment, a large building most elabo
rately constructed for every conceivable
efoription of bath, douche and vapor ap

teurs place you in n chamber, where ap
pear two females in short b!ou?es, with all

vaulted chamber, introlucedbr the duaclie
women referred to, precisely in the condi

A HEM Ann ABLE WOMAN.
In a low, tumbled-down building in the
old Faubourg St. Miry, New Orleans, reck
ing with perpetual damps, and with the
mould of nearly a century on its roof, lives
an old woman, whose career is one of the
most remarkable in the history of the
descent City. Once brilliant and beauti
ful, she yet retains traces, though dimmed
ami fading, of that exquisite loveliness
which made her the belle and leader of
fashion in her native citv. An only child,
born to immense wealth and educated in
everv accomplishment which uie mosi
learned European seminary could stipplv.
at eighteen she shone upon Ihe world of
fashion here, without a rival. - Courted and
Haltered, with innumerable suitors, she dis
carded the advances of men, and appeared
only anxious to enjoy the society in which
she moved so conspicuous and brilliant an
ornament. Hut it was not destined for her
to remain mj. It is said that no woman
cm exist without loving, and she proved
no exception to the generality of her sex.
Her attachment was, however, unwortlnlv
bestowed and lamentable in its results.
Passionate and' jealous, she unfortunately
found in her husband too much cause
tjr their indulgence Neglected her
love turned to htte scorned, her re
sentment was implarible. In : moment
of heicely stimulated passion, she aban
doned her home and fritntls, and shortly
afterward appeared in a foreign court in
that most disreputable or all characters, a
female adventuress, lint if her calling was
disgraceful her career was distinguished.
She became tbo ruling spirit that guided
and controlled the actions of monarchy.
At her rn d, brilliant meteors faded from
the galaxy of fashion, and armies swept
over hostile borders. lint ti revolution
arose i.i the land, and she- became the in
mate of a prison, lvcaping thence by the
leniency ot those who dashed the Bourbon
Charles from power, she next appiared as
the minion ol an Indian Rijih. Her name
is yet abhorred by the matrons of English
India, and little children are taught toniorn
the impious treason of her example. lint
as her years grw on spare her beauty
waned, and then came loss of power.
Spurned by the virtuous and Kited by the
court, a wanderer of many years, hP came
back to her native land, lltr friends were
dead; the memory of her early triumphs
had passed away. She stood a solitary
wreck in the city of her birth amidst the
ruins of her lile. None knew her none
would. Scorned by the good and feared by
the bad, she has led a hermit's life. Some
times old crones will come and gossip with
her; at others youth will pause to wonder
at the wreck that time has wrought. Hut
recollection slill stirs her heart, and from
the shadowy isles of memory comp smiles
and tears to beau ei darken on her face.

The " Woman's Eights " agitation is
much better directed at this time than
formerly, and it is now very formidable
where it wasa few years .igo simply ridicu
lous. Its present le pectabilityand strength
is chiefly in consequence of the more prac
tical pursuit of i tie les visionary ends
aimed at. The arguments of the most
earnest of the woman's rights advoontes
have of late years been devoted to obtain
ing a recognition. of their rights as laboreis
rather than a3 citizeo.s. The latter claim
may he allowed in lime, although it seems
that the tendency of the American mind
is lo restrict! rather than to extend the
fratichke. tfh'e more practical form Of
tho movement has already met with great
and deserved f uccess. Ila Iafest develou-
mentin New' York Was the organization of
iVOrkmg. woman's Protective Union, "simi
lar to tboso in the interests oi workmen at
various trades. Two or three " homes for
working-women " have been built in .New
York lately, in which large numbers of
women of all ages, working' at all trades,
have been brought in social contact and
industrial rivalry; and their combined
experieoca and the advice of a few Ieadintr
I-jr.. ,1 .-. j- P
i allies amoug me agiiaiors lor woman 3
rights have suggested to them the need for
a protective trades union to regulate the
tabor supply and. ita compensation, 1 all
reports of these meeting have been ptib
lished, in all of which evidences of tin
deep interest taken by the operatives were
visible, and the early succcasof the move
ment indicated and almost assured.
Every practical movement which has for
its object the intelligent direction of wo
man a labor should have our earnest sun.
port, even though, it may be burdened with
ascneme. which micm prove in me end oh
jectionable lo a certain class of employers,
a lie principal ueiu oi leuiaic lnuustrr
needlework is crowded to excess, and the
laborers require and deserve the protection
which a union can give them. More than
all else do the working- women of this coun
try require special direction as to the occn
pations in which they must encase. Here
tofore it. has been, and still is the case, that
more than one-half of the women forced
by necejsity to labor for their support turn
to needlework as a means of subsistence.
The consequence is that that branch of in
dustry is overcrowded with laborers at
starvation prices, while ecores of other oc
cupathns, less exhausting to the system
and less dimcult to learn, are unfilled, al
though such labor is wanted at remunerative
rates. In the reports of the statements of
the woikiog-women alluded to, we have
noticed that invariably the needle-women
have complained more than any other
class of the hardest worlr at the poor
est prices. The source: of the trouble
is evident the needle women under
bid each other; the supply of that
sort of labor is far in excess of the de
mand; employers will pay the highest
rates to Mary Jane while Susan Ann and
Matilda, who are just as good work-women.
are .begging lo do me worK al lower prices.
Ihe Working-women's Association cannot
expect-to force the employers. to pay high
prices as long as thp labor is plenty, but
they may greatly promote the general wel
fare of 3eamtreases and the sex by di
recting and aiding them to learn to wotk
with other implements than the needle in
other words, in less crowded ohannels.
Another practical foim of the movemcEt
is the prolessional education of ladie?.
Though it cannot, as a matter of course,
personally affect many of. the sex, it will
still prove, in its general results, the most
important part of the revolution. At met
the'profesaional education of women was
confined to tho culture of young persons for
the duties of the school-room. I he result
has been that the women have already eo
far supplanted the men in the public
schools of the country, that of the 150,000
tutors in the United Mates nearly three-
fourths are females. Boston has 553 fe
male to G2 male teachers ; New York city
220C females to 17G males ; Ohio, 13,220
females to 834S males. la every State,
however the females are insubordinate
positions at smaller salaries than the men : -
the men are employed chiefly, in .the
general direction, the females in the details
of the work.
Of late this special or professional edu
cation of the gentler Bex has been extended
to other branches.of industry and learning.
The New York Tiinesof a few days since,
contained a tioticeof the organization ot a
medical school for woman In connection
with the Nefv York Infirmary ;for women
and children. This is not the first and
only school in that city. A writer in Har
per' Magazine, on " Women's work and
wagjs" states that " a lady physician of
New York City is engaged in teaching a
Class of 200 yonng ladies in the laws of
physology, hygiene and hereditary trans
mission, nnd the Board of Education of
New York, in order to encourage her, has
given the ue of the principal hall in the
Twelfthstreet:' school. Philadelphia also
boasts a medical college for women, now
in its twelfth year, and from which many
thoroughly educated ladies have been
graduated. Six female physicians notv
practice in Pennsylvania, and a large num
ber in New York.
Much has been done also lo educate
women in the art matteas, and practical
female architec s, designers s.nd artists are
now being educated in the Cooper Insti
tute Art School of New Y'ork, the Pnila
delphia Sjhool of Design, the Baltimore
Art Academy, and various institutions
throughout the country. Every year the
necessity for women supporting themselves
becomes more pressing, and the best way
to solve the problem of how they are to do
it so serious to society, as well as to the
tex is lo direct their labor into proper
channels, and to aid and extend profes
sional as well as general education.
