VICTORIA V. WOODHULL.
Wo never permit otirrelf. to give ut
terance to any word that may, by any
possibility, wound the eoiiMbilitics of
any lady, ami wo therefore tiro forced
to the iiccc."ity of expressing our dis

He it undcridood-wru cull thu attention
of all ladies to the assertion that wo
do not object to Vic. because eho is a
woman's rights advocate because she
believes woman the crown of human
nature, tho hcad-ccntro of tho tinivcrM:,
the boss of the household, tho legitimate
owner of the breeches of authority. Wo
arc with her on all tho.-e points." Nor
do wo object to a reasonable degree of
effrontery. Wo can oven endure Anna

wo are free to confess that Vic. is a little
too much of a good thing. She can
only be appreciated by thoe who tako
her in small doses. A utock broker uud
i candidate for tho presidency : an
editor aud a politician, (harp, tough,
and forward, she is constantly advertising
herself, aud i.s becoming among women

that wo ivsjicct everything that wears

to s:iv a harsh word about woman, we

"77i LITTLE VllUMM AJtOLWl)
Hector Sabine would not 'crform tho

Sabino is the representative of a clais I

'Timn halts tint.' in I lift first ilrnii

This-nccd wo wy7-is tinn, a thought
fif wo mav call a alnn-Jrot, thotiithri
never before given to the world. It
contains a great truth, worthy the con-
deration of every human being. We j
bavo had an intimate acquaintance will
Time for several years, and can safely
assert that ho is not in the habit of
halting. He has rultivated tins habit
of going right ahead, and during the
life time of Mr. Prentice ao frequently
indulged himself in tin regard as to in
duco that gentlemen to write a number
of verms in which ho declared, and
elaborated the avcrtion, that "Time

Onardo editor to discover that tTlin

'Pauses not." A man nriy "pause
not" nndsyet not halt not, ' while any
i i e . ii i
one who Italia not is t'niupollcil to
"pause not." This shows, in a ootielu-
dive manner, that ."Time pauses not,"
in an original proposition, is not by
any mean1 as fine was"Timc halts not."
If this were not true, we should so de
clare, whatever might be the consequen
ce". "How much ofiener the 'happy now
" 'year' greeting seems to come round
'than it did a few years ago!" This is
another slop-drop. Tho Onarga man,
liko keno, is correct. Tho greeting
due- see in to come round much
ol'tencr than it did. It tired to
come round once in each year; but now
it heein-. to be coming round every cor-
ncr we pa-. A friend of ours met it
coming round Walder's corner yes
terday morning, uud in the afternoon
saw it in l'at. Fitzgerald's miIooii.
And' this is n puro drop 'and,
"as Time flics thus hastily on, so,
a few inuro changes and our
"sands of lifo will bo run." Tho
information that Time flies is a
pleasing eurprifc. Wo wero taught to
believe that ho could not fly that he
rodo in a mysterious sort of a
chariot, holding in one hand nu hour
glas and in tho other a scythe. Hut,
nfterwards, .Mr. I'ronticc informed us in
his poem, " Tho Clo.iug Year," that
Timo was a tomh-buildcr," nnd wo
concluded tho chariot story was not
entitled to belief. No other respect
able tomb-builder within our acquain
tance over indulges in tho luxury of
flying, aud vc do not bolievo Time
could do so without injuring his busi
ness. If Mr. Zuckrcigcl, who is n tomb
stone builder of great ability, were n
high-flyer, ho would never havo pro
cured the largo business bo now pos
sesses, and wo do not bcliovo that Timo,
who, if .Mr. l'rentico was not mistaken
concerning his profession, is it tomb
builder of no little merit, could afford
to sacrifice patronage, as ho undoubted
ly would, by Hying thus hastily on.
Wo must therefore reject tho Onarga
mill's ' flying-thus-hastily-on " then
ry ; and he will pardou us if wo say in
tho language of the negro minstrel
song: "Shoo, fly!"
But, we cannot proceed. Wo must

"is against it. .Mr. Douglas is a negro,

has overlooked the fact, that Southern
Illinois in entitled to some consideration

that gentlemen of merit live in this neck

was in making up tho commission. Our
