A National Union Contention, of at least
two dihntos from each congressional dis

four'detegatcs at large from each State, will
be held at the city of Philadelphia, on the
second Tuesday (14th) of Aagost next.
Bach delegates will be chosen by the elec

Administration In maintaining unbroken the
union of the States nnder the Constitution
which four fathers established, and who
agree in the following propositions, rls:

Indissoluble, and is perpetual ; and the Con

guaranteed by that Constitution, to sbto

ment in any other form ;
Slavery Is abolished, and neither can, nor
ought to be, re-established in any Stute or
Territory within our Jurisdiction
Each State has the undoubted right to pre
scribe the qualifications of its own electors,
and no external power rightfully can, or
ought to, dictate, control, or influence the
free and voluntary action of the States in the
exercise of that neht :
The maintenance Inviolate of the rights of

Btate to order and control its own domestic
concerns, according to its own Judgment ex
clusively, subject only to the Constitution
of the United States, is essential to that bal
ance of power on which the perfection and
endurance of our political fabric depend, and
the overthrow of that system by the usurpa
tion and centralization of power in Congress
would be a revolution, dangerous to repub
lican government and destructive or liberty ;
Each Ilouse of Congress is made, by the
Constitution, the sole judge of the elections,
returns and qualifications of its members;
but the exclusion of loyal Senators and Rcp-
sentatives. DroDerlv chosen and Qualified.
under tho Constitution and laws, is unjust
Every patriot should frown upon all these
acts and proceedings everywhere, which can
serve no other purpose than to rekindle tho
animosities of war, and the effect of which
upon our moral, social and material interests
at home, and upon our standinir abroad, dif
fering only in degree, Is injurious like war It-

A Fkxale Genius. A few days sinee we
published a paragraph in which we stated
that Miss Harriet Hosmer was -receiving an
income of $15,000 oyear from her labors as
an artist In Italy. The St, Louis Dispatch
gives the following account of her rcmarka
"When we first knew Miss Ilosmershe
was but a child, who, having an indulgent
Tather and no mother, was alluned to roam
about the fields like a young fawn almost un
restrained by parental authority. She was
at that time an only child, and was the light
and life of a doting father, who loved her
more than life itself, and who, having but
little time to care for and instruct her, allowed
her to shape her ownconrse. Out-door sports
were her especial favorites, such as riding,
walking, fisbLig, shooting, swimming, and
chasing butterflies. She had a room in the
old mansion house that was situated on the
banks of, tho Charles river, in Watertown.
Mass., that was set apart as her museum, and
the first portion of toe collection she made
was of butterflies, bugs, fiies, and every man
ner of insect that she could procure. These
all were stuck fast to the wall by large pins,
until the walls of the room were covered with
insects and bugs. Her next eflbrt was mold
ing in clay, first of ber own hands and feet;
afterwards sho attempted to form the eyes,
and after making collections of feet, hands,
and arms, she commenced to form a head
and bust, and after havinir made one that
partially satisfied her, procured a block of
ngypiun raamie irom a neighboring grave-
sione-worser, erapioyea mm to ao the nrst
(hiselin?, he striking where her finger point
ed, until she took charge of it herself, and
after several months' labor succeeded in
bringing out a very acceptable bust,
"This was the first step toward the S15.000
a year income. Miss Hosmer was always
noted for her skill in horseback riding, shoot
ing and swimming, and many a boy has
been obliged to acknowledge her ability as
a swimmer, and many a time she has borne
ofi the palm in a rare with a dozen boys in
Chsrles river. Miss Hosmrr at one time at
tended school at the female seminarv at
Lenox, and there was the companion of
ranny jvrmoio jjuuer, wnoso namo and
fame are world vide. She was always more
at home In the company of boys than girls,
owing to her taste for outdoor snorts. Manv
a prank has she played upon her unsuspect
ing neighbors; st one time, dressing iu male
attire, going to the city on tho cars, and un
coupling the train on a dov,n grade, leaving
ono car far behind tho train, much to the
annoyam.0 of its occupants."

trol over tho gambling fraternity and fast

He has now found a rival. A woman from

The National Bate Ball Club of .your city
are having a fine time in New York. Led
by Mr. Gorman, postmaster of the United
States Senate, they have rnado a fine impres
sion by their gentlemanly bearing and skill
as players. They are tha irucali of tba Ex.
celalors, and came on to play a match game
in return for one played in Washington last
year. It was played on the elegant grounds
ofi the Excelsior club, in the presence of an
immense crowd of ladies and cent lemen. who
enthusiastically cheered the performance.
The Excelsiors won, but no other club in the
country could have beaten the' Nationals.
Tho batting and running of Mr. Fox was
ruperb, and was hailed with enthusiastic
cheers. Every form of attention riding,
boating, feasting has been lavished ion the
Nationals. The whole was wound nn hv a
splendid dinner at the Mansion Ilouse, on

most distinguished citizens, of the City of

flowing eloquence and flowing wine, music,

The friends of Rinehart, the sculptor and
we are glad to know they are many will be
gratified to learn that he arrived in this
country by the steamship Arago on Monday
last, after an absence of eight years. During,
that Interval, by unwearied industry and the
force of native genius, ho has won for him.
self, from thosowho are best capable of judg
ing of the merit of his works, the reputation
or being one of the foremost sculptors of his
time. To such as remember his earlier
efforts, promising, as they undoubtedly were,
the perfection he has sinco reached is the
best Justification of the Judicious encourage
ment he then received, and tho best reward
for the assistance which was so generously
accorded him at the outset of his career in
Italy. In this respect Rin:hart, whilst
struggling to achieve that recognition m the
domain of art to which he has since attained,
was more favorably situated than many
others. Ho had at least one friend whose
purse was open to him at all times, and he
was thus secured against much of that ha
rassment which besets the path of a young
and unknown beginner. It may be recorded
to his honor thLt in no instance did ho atmse
the privilege, but continued to observe the
same close economy and to work with the
same assiduity of purpose that distinguished
him whilst in this city. Under such circum
stances his improvement was so rapid that
when Crawford died Rinehart was chosen to
complete the commissions of Crawford for
the United States Government. Those com
missions have been ably executed, und now,
seeking some relaxation, he has returned on
a visit to his parents in Carroll county, and
will not again go back to Italy until he has
completed some busts which he was invited
to come over and execute.
It is pleasant to chronicle the fact that It
was in this city that Rinehart'a unquestiona
ble talent as a sculptor was first appreciated,
and that some of the finest of hislater works
have here found purchasers. One of these,
and tho most accessible to the public, is an
exquisite monumental group m Loudoun
Park Cemetery. It is composed ol two
figures Our baviour and tne Angel of
Resurrection and of two vases sculptured
in bass-relief, illustrating scriptural subjects.
He has also executed for one or his earliest
friends two pieces of statuary, which are
masterly both in point of design and in the
skillful arrangement of details. One is styled
tho Woman of Samaria, a noble figure, bear
ing a water Jar, and every lino of whose
drapery is a perfect study. The other is the
monumental fiirure of a woman, closelv and
severely' draped, dropping flowers over a
frave. It is at once simple and touching,
n addition to these, we may mention a mon
umental group of sleeping children, admira
bly wrought, and a manly figure of 'that
Leander who swam the Hellespont. Of the
commissions which Rinehart has executed
for others, we know nothing more than that
he has been kept constantly employed.
l-eos. A young man
went from New York citv to the West, where
ho commenced husijiess on his own account,
and married. His friends in tho city were in
terested in bis welfare, and when a merchant
was about to Journey to the place where tho
young mnn had located, ho was requested
to visit the emigrant and ascertain how he
lived, and what sort of a woman he had cho
sen, his prospects, etc. Accordingly the
New Yorker ascertained the residence of bis
young friend and called upon him quite early
in the morning. He found him In a small,
neat cottage, and Just taking his breaklast.
The introduction of the New Yorker to his
wife was quite off-hand and unceremonious,
and he was requested to be seated, and par
take of the morning meal. The young wife
had prepared tho steak, biscuit, and cofleo
with her own hands, and for n table had used
her kneading-board, over which a napkin waa
spread, and tho "board" placed on iter lap.
'1 ho New Yorker declined a teat at th. table,
and took his leave. On making his re-
fiort to his New York friends as to how he
ound his j oung friend living, ho described
'ho stylo us "magnificent 1" and for explana
tion of tho superlutive, said that if ho were
ihe owner of the young man's furniture he
would not take ten thousand dollars for the
legs of his table 1
In discusssing the woman's rights question
recently, tho Pull Mall (latcUe (London)
makes ihe ollowing revelations :
"But It is growing daily more difficult to
become a wile, una, if wo inity beliete Dr.
Farr, to become a mother also, with regard
to the first point, it is dcmonstrablv Immo.
iblo for all our women nay, for more than
two nuruB, or even less to marry, because
ihcre are many more women than men, and
there arc many men who cannot and many
who will not marry; and, as to tho second po
sition, Dr. Farr has annoumed that there
aie in England aud Wales alone more than
one million of childless families, while other
authorities affirm that our race is so far lest
prolific than in former times that in our large
