In Massachusetts there arc 00,000 more
females than niales. Luder such circiim.

for the Michigan male surplus lo relieve

Doubtless the Massachusetts women

Tnt; annual report of the commissioner

Tin: British commissioner to our cen
tennial has suggested, according to For
ney, that thc permanent, buildings of tho

SO that there may be a bi-centennial

theic is no certainly thal the rest of thc
country would lind it either pleasant or
profitable, fhe coming centennial would
be an awful bore if we had debbi rately

arose fruin thc setting up of ?I hilliard

A Huston merchant, who imports near

American to say thal "the only region

TIM: report nf the commissioner nf ed

Catholic church leads with IS seminaries,

llcspecl lor Women.
Women arc at a discount w here there
i-> nu civilization. Tims it isa notorious
fact (hat among thc natives of Africa thc
lair sex is mure honored in the respect
which is shown tu the cow than in that
which the heaven-sent companion of
man elicits there. Winnen have unthill1'
tu complain nf in this un thc score of sex,
but may fairly insist thal the particular
member.-ul't heir sex chosen tur special
honor should be ol' their own species.'
The superior rc-peet accorded In cows,
ton, is entirely al variance with thc spirit
ol' modern intelligence; ami until Ihe
men ul Africa reverse thc present dis
tinction against (lie wives of their bosoms
in fstvor of ibu-e who buhl a li .-- intimate
relation with them, there can be no fa
vorable result of uiis-innary enterprise.
Thc d?lcrence is merely a ^inlogical mic
