The Grievances of Women.
1 was making an insignificant iournev
in company with a married pair, be
tween whom there was the most perfect
understanding and good intelligence.
The lady wore a pair of very shabby
gloves, to which, by some accident or
other attention was called. The husband
was shocked and ashamed. " One would
think," he said, "that I could not af
ford to buy you gloves." . He had no
wish to be Illiberal he was fond of his
wife and proud of her and very willing
to keep her in gloves and anvthimr else
she wantod, but he had no feeling of
niib iu uiu iiiaitur; 1111 geiiHtj mat ner
position ought to be anything else than
that oi absolute dependency. In this
respect, however, the most liberal and
the moBt generous men are often aa
much at fault as the coarsest. They
will not allow the importance of the
second part in the universal duct. They
win give iiuerauy anu praise freely, but
they will not acknowledge " My wife
has as much to do as I have. Without
her work mine would not have half its
value; we are partners in the toll of liv
ing and she has earned the recompense
of that toil as well as I." No one will
say this, nor will the world acknowledge
ik wnat uie woria aoes say wnen a
woman outside of the bonds of mar
riage claims to be allowed to work for
her bread as she best can is, that she
ought to go back to her proper sphere,
which is home, but in that proper
sphere and at her own individual work,
all credit is taken from her, her exer
tions are denied, her labor Is under
valued. The only chance for her to get
her work acknowledged is to do it very
badly, when there will be an outcry,
ilut when it is well done it is ignored,
it is taken as a matter of course, it is
never thought upon at all. Let this be
contrasted with the reverse oase a case
by no means unfreauent, though left
out of account in all popular calcula
tions. When it happens that the woman
is tho richer of tho two partners in life,
when the living comes from her side,
or when she earns it, she is considered
bound to assert no consciousness of the
fact. It is a horror and shame to all
spectators when she mattes any stand
upon her monoyed superiority. That
Bhe should let it be seen that she is the
supporter of the household, or remind
her husband that he is in any way in
debted to her, is a piece of bad taste
and bad fueling for which no blame is
too severe. And the woman herself is
the first to feel It so. But that which
seems the depth of meanness and un-
generosity In a woman is the natural
ana every day attitude of the man. It
is a point of honor on her part to ignore
to the length of falsehood her hus
band's inferiority to herself in this re
spect; whereas the fact of her depen
dence upon him is kent continually be
fore her eyes and insisted upon, both
soriously and jocularly, at every point
of her caroer. t'raacrt Alagatine.
A remarkable murder oase recently
came before the Crlmiual Court at
Uoauvais, in France. The manager of
a private lunatio asylum at Villiers was
accused of the murder of an inmate
named Appert. The asylum oontains
luualius of a quiet disposition, who are
employed In agriculture, and Appert,
who' was of a sullen temperament, but
manngeable if treated mildly, refused
to obey an overseer's order to prucoed
to work. Estorut, the manager, coming
up, began to abuse him, aud Appert
was about to rush on Kstoret, wheu
the latter snatched a cane from a Clip
board. The cane, however, broke, and
Appert struck Eatorot twice with a
shovel, but was overpowered by the at
tendants. He was then struck' by Es
toret, and on his resisting an order to
undress to undergo a oold bath, Eatoret
administered a blow on his ann which
fractured it. Alter the bath, Appert'
arm was diessnd, and ho was kopt out
of the daotor's sight for live days.
One of the keepers urged that he
should be sent to the lnlii mary. Ksto
ret, feigning consont, placed film in a
covered cart, anil apparently startud for
Clermont, hut, diverging to a by-road,
strangled his victim and buried him In
the ditch of a potato held. Keturning

Insisted, and now insists, that the Government
of the I'lilted States of America Is empowered
and in duty bound to effectually' protect the
elections denoted by the CoiiHtirminn as na
tional. More than this, the Republican party
holds as tho oardinul point In Its creed that the
Government should by every means known to
the Constitution protect all American citizens
everywhere lu ihe full enjoyment of their
civil and political rtg-hta, As a great part of
Its work of reeon"iructlon, the Republican
party gave the bullot to the emancipated
slave aa bis right and defense. A large in
crease in the number of members of Congress
and of tho Klcctoral College from former
slave-holding States was the immediate result.
The history of recent years almunda In evi
dence tht In many ways and In many places,
especially where their number has been great
enough to endanger rtcmovratlc control, the
very men by whemo elevation to citizenship
this Increase of representation was ef
fected have been deburred and robbed
of their voice and their Vote. It Is
true that no State statute or Con
stitution in so many words deules or abridges
the exercise of their political rights, hut
tv-dics employed lobar their way are no less
effectual. It is a suggestive and startling
thought that the Increased power derived
from toe enfranchisement of a rnco now
dented Its share In governing tho coun
try, wielded by those who lately sought
the ovortbmw of the Government, Is now
the solo reliance to defeat the party
which represented the sovereignty and
nationality of the American people In
tho greatest crisis of our history. Re
publicans cherish none of the resentments
which may have animated thom during thn
actual conflict of arms. They long fur a full
and real reconciliation between the sections
which were needlessly and biinentabiy at

the wisdom and practicability of various re

Terrible Fate of a Number of Workmen
in the Hudson River Tunnel The Walls
in the Hudson River Tunnel The Walls suddenly Give Way, and Twenty Men
Miserably Perish—Heroic Conduct of One
of Their Number.
A New York dispatch of tha SUt
pivos the following account of the terri
ble accident at theliudson KWer'funnol:
At five o'clock this morning the caisson
leading to the entrance of the Htidsou Klver
Tunnel, eonstrucUng at Bixteenth itrset
Jersey City, caved In, carrying with It an Im
mense quantity of earth. Twenty-two men
lost their lives, while eltfht bad almost a
miraculous escape. The nijfht gun 7 of thirty
men, including AsiHUiit-Buerlntendont
Woodland and two firemen, entered the shaft
at midnight, the hour for work for this gang
being from twelve toeight o'clock. The depth
of the shaft Is sixty-five feet, and, while most
of the men were employed at the bottom of
the shaft, about a third of the gang was
engaged on the brick wall of an arch twenty
live feet higher. It was the latter squad, all
bricklayers, that escaped, except two. The
main arch of the tunnel rune out from the
shaft a distance of about thirty fret, when It
opens Into two distinct arches that are to
form the tunnel. Through some negligence
of the workmen, It Is supposed, the air-lock
was not properly adjusted, aud when the proc
ess of shifting commenced, the brick wsll
connecting the two arches gave way and
water rushed Into the cave.
Tho following is a list of the casualties:
Peter Woodland. Assistant Superintendent;
Frank A is sum, foreman; Thomas Burns,
foreman; A. Kick son, Teter Felsher, Patrick
Klmlu, Cbarlea Neilson, William -F. Bagley,
Andrew Jacobsen, Bryan Sheridan. Charles

Mollne, Thomas Cummiups, Christ Hansen,
J. Vanuostrand, John Doyle and James
In addition to these, three men whose
names are not known are missing, and the
ofllclala say they must have perished. All
whose names are given belonged to Jersey
City except Bark. He resided in Uoboken.
The Superintendent thinks the air In th
tunnel must have escaped through the slit
Thornse Van Nostrand, one of the reecneij
men, says: "The main shaft Is sixty feel
deep, and from the bottom of this shaft thi
entrance to the tunnel Is effected througb 1
cylindrical barrel six feet In diameter and
fourteen feet la length. . This is called an all
lock, and serves to preserve the density ol
the atmosphere of the tunnel, which, In turn,
Is secured by the forcing of air through pipes
from pumps. There is a door In each end ol
the air-lock. They both open Inward. At
each aide of the doors are round windows of
thick glass, through which, from the outside
of the air-locks, a view can be gained of the
work and workmen inside the tunnel. There
were twenty-eight men at work in the tunnel.
They went In at twelve o'clock last night for
the eightrbour shift I was at work near
the east end of the lock, and In the
west end of the tunnel. It was at
about 4:80 o'clock that I heard the
bolts snap, and the braces give way. At the
same time I felt a rush of air in my face. I
started back with seven of the men who were
ear me and ran Into the lock. The air
pressure crowded the door shut at the east
end. At first It was blocked by a Joist which
we pulled out, and then the door slammed to.

"After eight men bad escaped, one man. In

Not every lady and centleman wh
bas this season applaudod Miss Terry's
Portia is aware that, about the date
when the ' Merchant of Venice" may
be sun nosed to have exhibited his
gabardine on the Rial to, there actually
existed great female lawyers in the
neighboring city of Bologna. Prof.
Caldexini, who held the Chair of Juris
prudence in that University in 1360,
and Prof. Novella, who occupied it in
1366, were not only celebrated for their
legal lore and skill, but if we may trust
their portraits, exceedingly beautfui
women, with noble Greek profiles,
dressed In a style whioh Miss Terry
might have copied without disadvan
tage. If women hereafter should again
obtain entrance into the legal pro
fession, it is not at all improbable that
we may see something more of the keen
ness of feminine wits engaged in disen
tangling the knots of the law. Two
ladies in Ireland, according to the
Times Dublin correspondent, have just
been conducting their own most intri
cate cases in a manner which excited
the surprise of the Master of the Holis,
who even observed that he was "aston
ished that the ladies had been able to
put their case on paper so Intelligently
and clearly without legal advice.'1 It
other ladies should follow the example
of the MiHses Fogarty, what a falling
oil must ensue in solicitors1 bills. They
lost their case, it is truo. but seemingly
could not have won it under any guid
ance; and at all events they have es
caped that great aggravation of the
mUery of defeat in a court of law the
lawyers co.su. tali man uazecie.

Sinking of a Pleasure Yacht on the
Detroit River—Several Lives Lost.
DETROIT, July 23.
Yesterday morning Kuthor Uleyen
berg h, pastor nf the Kornun Cslhollc Church of
the Holy Trinity, of this city, started out to
ive his altar Intys their regular excursion,
hey went on board the steam yacht Mamie,
and were taken to Monroo, Mich. On their
return, while coming up the Detroit River,
at about ten o'clock last night, at a point Just
below Granny Island Llghthouso, the yacht
was met by the steamer Garland, of Detroit,
having ol board the Mulders' Union and a
large party of friends, and a collision took
place, tho Garland literally running the steain
yacht down and almost running over her.
There were twenty-four persons on board
the Mamie. Of these but eight were saved,
the others going down In tJis deep, swift
water, with no hope of tindints the bedlee jet
The Captain of the Garland, George Horn,
was near the wheel-house with the wheels

by an Evening 2'vm reporter to-day, refused
The wheelsman, H. W. Buff, aays he saw a
light, which be took to be au anchor-light,
and no red or green lights. When about
fifty feet from the light he heard a whistle
from the Mamie, answered It, and backed the
engines. He called to Captain J-lorn to help
on the. wheel. He thinks the Mamie must
have tried to cross his bow. boats were low
ered Immediately and life-preservers thrown
overboard. There was a great lack of nerve
and svstem In the matter of rescuing, so far
the officers of the Garland were concerned.
An nicer of the Garland, or one appearing
be In authority, cursed those who were
throwing over life-preservers, and made them
stop It, but a negro employe of the boat
seemed to have more nerve than any one else
belonging to the boat, and set the work ol
puttiug over llfe-pretervere agoing again.
James Murtah, an attache of the tivmintf
aAVuu, and a level-headed, courageous young
man, says he was on the Garland, sitting at
the bow, when the accident occurred. Ue
ays the Garland was running stralKbt down
the river on her course. The boats would
have passed, but the yacht suddenly, when
but a few feet from tbe Garland- put hei
wheel over and shot across the bow of the
Garland, was struck, and went down. There
was but a moment to act, as the awful trag
edy was over In a moment of time, almost.
There were several instances of individual
heroism of those on board of the Garland,
conspicuous among them being that of John

Captain Hoffman, Engineer Martin, Father

In an Interview Father Bleyenhergh states
that just prior to the collision most of the
boys were in the oabin. He was sitting with
the older members of tbe party, and they
noticed the steamer coming down the river.
The Garland and the Fortune (another
steamer) seemed to him not very far apart,
and coming very rapidly. " 1 do not know,'
said, "I hardly daro assert It, and yet It
seemed to me" and the father made a sig
nificant pause, as though he thought they were
racing. He went on to sav that he did not
dream of the collision, in fact had Just said

yacht, crushing it as if It bad been an egg-

the moment he had divined a collision was
unavoidable he had shouted to his friends and
children, "Cometothe front!" Come to the

followed him, and atthe same time he felt the
boat give way beneath him, and caught bold of
rope on the Garland. The young lady did
the same. Somebody on board the steamer
pulled her aboard, and he climbed the rope

were saved crawled out of the cabin windows
and threw themselves into the water. Tbey

some who might have been saved were, be

after. This was not the fault of the Fortune,

land responded. Netlhcrapparently changed

He came across a fine buck and fired.
The animal fell to the ground and lay
if dead. Mr. Clement hastened up
the body and was engaged in an in
spection of its fine proportions when tbe
animal suddenly sprang up and rushed
him. Mr. Clement was taken un
awares, but instead of retreating be
grasped the antlers of the infuriated
animal and for a few ni omenta held him
arm's length like a vise. They stood
facing each othor several momenta,
when the hunter began to yield gradual
ly to his most formidable antagonist.
The buck finally seemed to be iufused
with new life, and, with a desperate
effort, hurled the hunter over a clitT.
They both rolled down together to the
bottom of the precipice, about eighty
feet. Tbe buck was killed before he
reached the botUin, and Mr. Clement
hud his collar-bone broken and sus
tained severe bruises. When Mr. Clem
ent was able to arise he crawled up the
cliff, and, after a great effort, managed
