"BRICK" POMEROY ON LUCY."
The Big Female "Injun" of Woman's
Lucy Stone is the grand high
priestess and "llear-me Norma" of
strong-minded womankood. She
flies higher, roosts at a more lofty
elevation, and cackles more shrilly
and unmusically than any of the
crowing hens who for the last ten
or fifteen years have kept up an
industrious squawking about wo
man's rights. We remember Lucy
in the days of Tripler Uall, nearly
fifteen years ago when she was
"Miss Lucv." before she had "pop
ped the question" to the hen-pecked
and laint-neartea specimen oi man
hood whom she had captured, and
when her virgin charms were in
their most magnificent condition
and her -personal attractions at
their zenith. She was then decid
edly 6cragp:y, scrawny, skinny; palo
of face and sharp of features; her
hair tucked gracelessly behind her
ears: her matchless form drapod in
a scant pattern of a black, loosely
fitting skirt, with her betrowsered
legs dangling in a knock-kneed,
awkward, ungainly way over a pair
of No. 7 gaiters. Lucy has grown
older since that time, and so has
poor Blackwell (her husband in
cumbrance), who could, perhaps,
"a tale unfold" whose lightest men
tion would "harrow up the blood,"
make each "particular hair" of
sympathizing humanity "stand on
end," and set all the world agog
with pity for Lucy's matrimonial
partner. We never think of the
time when we heard Lucy get up
and howl for woman's wrongs and
woman's rights, but we heave a
sigh for her wretched and horn
swoggled victim, and wonder what
that miserable man's life muEt re
semble. Lucy, we say, has grown
older, but she is just as crotchety
as ever just as deeply impressed
with the necessity for women to
assert their power, individuality,
and right to the ballot, and to a
rivalry and contest with men in
the field, the counting house and
the shop. Like a goblin in petti
coats (short ones) she wanders up
and down in the land striving to
incite her down-trodden sex to "get
up and git," raise thunder, and
break things, make Rome howl,and
strike terror to the hearts of the
tyrannical "lords of creation."
Kansas "bleeding Kansas" has
been the latest scene of her labois
there 6he has wrestled with the
intelligent African, the oppressing
white man, and sought to arouse
feminine Kansas to the considera
tion of more tenons topics than
the government of home, the sweet
and holy associations of the domes
tic circle the guarding love and
care thrown around and about the
women of' our country' by those
who should be their natural protec
tors. In a recent speech, harangue
or scold, Lucy declared that she
fully believed that
"Light will so dawn on tho ano
malous political position of woman
that, before this summer's suns
have set, good men ot all parties
will come in solid column to wo
man, each man to his mother, and
taking hold of the hand which
rocked his cradle, will say, 'Come
with us! If possible, forgive us.
In future share our legislation, and
save us from such stupendous
crime and folly as we haye been
guilty of toward you!'
Which being translated is simply
"bosh!" ,1 Women do not ask to
share the legislation of men, or
enter th turbulent field ot politi
cal strife on the cohlraryheyrdaiiar
shrink Irom the prospect, and de
nounce the mad-caps and viragos
who aro clamoring for suffrage. A
true woman has no desire or wish
for such an unwomanly place
Senator Wade's Speech at Lawrence,
Mr. Wade then said that he had
kept in advance of the people in
the great strife between Freedom
and Slavery, he meant to do tht
same thing in the contest which had
just commenced for - extending the
rig M ot suffrage to women, lie was
unqualiuodly in lavor ot equal
rights for all, not only without re
gard to nationality and color, but
without rogard to sex. Women
were more virtuous than men; their
perceptions were quicker and keen
er, and when they gained political
power they would rectify many
abases which had thus far remain
ed untouched. If he had not be
lieved that his own wife had sense
enough to vote, he nevei would
have married her, laughter and
applause, and if any of his hear,
ers had wives who were unequal to
the discharge of the right of suff
rage, he would advise them to go
homo and get divorced at once.
Renewed laughter. The speaker
denounced those women who did
not want to vote because it was
not fashionable, and said that he
had a prediction to make: Female
suffrage will be general in less than
thirty years, (A voice "That's too
far off!") and he thought it likely
that in Kansas the next Legisla
ture might set the matter straight.
(Applause.) He repeated that he
intended to keep m advance of the
people on this subject, and that he
was now ready to take another
jump forward, if necessary. In his
view radicalism upon this and all
other questions was righteousness,
while conservatism was hypocrisy
and cowardice. The conservative
was a mere lickspittle and hanger
on; he was not only willing to be
trampled in the dust, but was wil
ling to remain there.
As regarded the political situa
tion he would only say that the
Southerners now had the mildest
terms offered them they would ever
get. If they chose to accept them,
well and good; they might have all
the advantage of such action; if
they refused them, another turn
would be given to the screw and
they would be compelled to yield
whether they wished to or not.
Congress had thus far been with
the people, and it would not now
desert them under the lead of J ohn
son or the devil. His hearers
might rest assured of one thing,
that reconstruction was as certain
to take place as that the sun was
Senator Wade then proceeded to
say that there was another ques
tion upon which he would express
his views, although his hearers
might differ from him in opinion.
We had disposed of the question
of slavery, and now that of labor
and capital must pass through the
ordea . The bhadow oi me ap-
nroachinff strucde between these
two creat interests was already
upon us, and it would do no good
to turn our backs upon the ques
tion. It must be met. Property
was not equally divided, and a
more equal distribution of capital
must be wrought out. inai cion
gress which had done so much for
the slave cannot quietly regard the
terrible distinction which exists
between the man that labors and
him that does not. . (Applause.)
"If you dullheads " said the speafc
er, "can't see this, the women will,
and will act accordingly." It will
not be long before the laborers will
demand ot canvassers upon the
eve of an election, "what will you
do for us?" and they will have a
satisfactory answer. Itlinot right
or just that any man should be
compelled ; to labor . until life is
mnclr lor yourselves
worn out and being is a curse. The
Almighty did not intend that this
should be the case, nor will it al
ways remain so. More leisure
must be given to the people lor
mental accomplishments, and labor-saving
machines had not yet
fulfilled their mission. Here in
Kansas, said the speaker, where
every man is a capitalist to a great
er or less extent, these inequalities
are not so great, and are not so
keenly felt as they are in the East,
and the speaker would advise eve
ry man in that sectiou who is sub
ject to a capitalist in any degree
to cut loose from him and get two
hours nearer sundown forthwith.
"Men of Kansas," he said, "if you
Almighty has done lor you, you
will be the Lords of Creation."
Mr. Wade pledged himself to ad
vocate the "natural rights of man"
boldly and persistently ; spoke of
the great commercial results which
would inevitably flow from the
completion of the Pacific railway,
and then referred to the striking
fact that the excursion party had,
during the two weeks of its jour
neying, accomplished by rail a dis
tance whicn would have taken a
year to traverse by the old modes
of conveyance. He concluded by
thanking the people of Lawrence
for the cordial welcome and kindly
curtesies they had extended to the
party ho represented.
The Little Boy's Rebuke.
There was once a very old man
who lived in the house with his son.
The old man was deaf; his eyes
were dim, and his legs weak and
thin. When he was at the table
he could hardly hold his spoon, so
much did his hand shake; and at
tiroes he would spill his soup on
All this vexed his son and his
son's wife; and they made the old
man sit in the corner behind the
stove. There he ate his food from
an earthern ware dish; and he had
not always too much to eat as you
may guess. '
Well, one day his trembling
hands could not hold the diBh ; it
fell on the floor and broke. At
this his son and son's wife were so
vexed that they spoke harshly to
the old man. His only answer was a
deep sad sigh. They.then brought
him a bowl made of wood out of
which he had to take his food.
Not long after this, his little
grandson, a boy about four years
of age, was seen at work with a
chisel and hammer, hollowing out
a log of wood.
Ilis parents could not guess what
he was trying to do. The little boy
said nothing to any one, but kept
at work on the log, and looked very
grave, as if he had some great work
"What are you doing?" asked his
father. Tho little boy did not want
to tell. Then his mother asked,
"What are you doing, my son?"
"Oh!" said he, "I am only making
a little trough, such as our pigs
eat out of."
"But what are you making it for,
"I am making it," said he, "for
you and father to eat out of when
I am a man."
The parents looked at each other
and burst into tears.
From that time forth they treat
ed the old man well. He had the
best place at the table, a nice dish
and plenty ot looa.

and a half, or two hour ago, and is

"That'll do," said the yankee;

A schoolmaster tells the follow
ing good one: I was teaching in a
quiet country village. The second
morning of my session I had time
to view my surroundings, and
among the 6canty furniture I espied
a three legged stool. "Is this the
dunceblock?" I asked a little girl
of five. The dark eyes sparkled,
the curls nodded assent, and , the
lips rippled out, "I guess so the
teacher always sits on it."

"Did you say you had slept ou

"Did you say your feet kiverod

- A Bio Thing. A few trips since,
as the Fleetwood was about to leave
her mooring at Cincinnati tho bell
was rang for suppor, and one of
them free American citizens 'of
African desent, placed himself at
the table, prepared to demolish tho
"good things" spread before the
traveler on the magnificent steam

for the second table, he informed
them that he was a free citizen and,

in peace, the table was cleared off
