Campbcll'si Lecture to the Ladle. Rcr. A. 31. Campbell's sermon or lecture to the ladies, Sunday evening, called oul a very large audience. So large, indeed, that many had to go away for want of room, while a large crowd remained at the door and about the windows of the building. The speaker, not very robust physically at I .t. ... - ! , t--V.l anv nun-, aa i.ir umier nirt usual pngui last night, and did not do himself jiutice, although the audience was quite entertained and, we trust, benefitted. The doctrine of spiritual atlinity and natural selection, as a curse to the domestic relation, was properly and ably discussed and condemned. Inger sollVt advice toparentsto correct tlisir children with caresses rather than corporal punish ment, was criticised and rejected as hetero dox, the Bible having announced that to spare the rod would spoil the child. The suspicion that the minister has more than one reason to dislike Ingcrsoll, and there fore to disagree with him in all his conclu sions and deductions is entirely gratuitous with us, and of course he is not responsible for our surmises, but Ingcrsoll hivs had too much to say in a political way to be popu lar with all classes, even if he were perfectly orthodox ia his religious belief. The assumption that this is a particularly corrupt epoch in the history of the United States, aud that men in "high places are worse than formerly, in proportion to the increase in population ip, as wn believe, erroneous and not sustained by the facts. We do not attribute to tho prVachcr any willful distortion of the truths of history; on the contrary, wc believe him to be per fectly sincere, earnest and honest in every thought aud every utterance, but there is such a thing as an unconcious leaning in the direction of traditional nreiudicca and , exploded theories that time alone can thor ough! v eradicate, and perhaps suflicient time has not yet elapsed to allow unbiased reason to assume control even of honest laborers in the cause of Christianity. Again, it uas assumed that modern politics are of such a degrading na'nrc, that if ladies should go to the ballot-box and vote, they too would be come degraded. This is a question about which m-inv able, so-called, moral refonn- I er disagree. Some contending that the presence oi reiincd women would tend to purify elections aud elevate the elective franchise. All thinkiug people agree that, abstractly, every person who is governed and taxed should have a voic in saying i 1 1 r distil ifivnrn tltnfii nti.l Its-inr mfrri 111(1 II iVS ailiali VllVitl ill, til tntjtl IVril iWUi l for what inirnois taxes ahall bt; collected. There is a growing inclination among the best thinkers to establish an intelligent qualification to the use of the franchise, and I but lor the ditiiculty ot determining prc i ciscly where ignorance ends and intelligcnc j begiiiti, such a test would no doubt be ap plied; but there M'cms to be no reasonauic grounds for excluding intelligent people from the exercise of this right on account of age. sex. color or previous condition. Ladies, from policy or modesty, need not exercise the right unless they feel interested ; enough m what thev mav believe to be the j cause of good government to overcome their scruples, nut to deny them the rignt to rcp ' resent their property and persons at the ballot-box, if they so desire, is to violate a natural law, the law of an equality of legal rights to every human being born into the world. It is not our purpose or desire to advo cato the cause of woman .suffrage, ia theac columns, until such time as the women themselves mav desire to avail themselves i of it; but that it would degrade their wo j manhood, we believe to be a mistake. "We ( see ladies of the purest and most exalted character mingling freely with men at church, at balls ami parties, at fairs and festivals, May parties and -1 tit of July cele brations, etc?, taking an active and impor tant part in the management, and yet never heard that they were any the worse for it, and why should they become demoralized by simply going to the polls and depositing a ballot that represents their honest convic tions in a matter that so deeply concerns them ? His "Moral Millinery" was a very clever conceit in which all the Christian graces were cut scant, and some of them so bias as to fit some people rather awkwardly; but pride, extravagance, etc., were dealt out in such liberal measure as to constitute the wearer "loud, ovcr-drcssed, vulgar and offensive.' The speaker as he proceeded with these aphorisms, which he used as short texts, made some telling applications. Although the lecture was to the women, he did not spare them, but pointed out their faults as well as theirvirtues and privileges. He plainly told them that many of their hands were red with murder, in offering wine to young men who could not resist the temptation to drink when it was offered by the hand of beauty, and that often and often the first draught that led a victim to a drunkard's grave was proffered by woman. Take the lecture all in all it was a suc cess, although not equal to his usual efforts when in better physical condition. Of course we have no objection to his indul ging in criticism of a political nature; wc hold that a man's protession or business is no bar to his being a politician; in fact, it is the duty of every Christian minister to strike at sin where ever it shows its head, aud if he thinks he sees it in politics, he ought to hit it a lick, but he i-hould be sure aud not strike the wrong head. It is thought that Gen. Crook, the Indian lighter, will be ordered to Idaho for the purpose of directing the war now being waged against the whites by Joseph and his picrccd-uoscd followers.

Tho Marquis of Salisbury, Sec retary of State for India, has been empow ered to raise JCj,000,000 for the Indian de ficit, of which one-half is to be ndded to the funded debt of India, and the rent to be raised by Treasury bills. But the Govern ment accepts! the power with the distinct understanding that Treasury bills shall be used only when Indian bills, which, for all practical purposes, arc equivalent to silver, cannot be sold, and it is hoped that the dis cretionary power to use Treasury bills when salca of silver wold only break down the price, mav help to steadv the market. Lord Hamilton, Under-Secretary for India, stated in the House of Commons, on the 21st ult., that the Government accepted this lat'er power on the distinct understanding that it should only be used when they could not nossiblv sell their bills. Hy that means, on the one hand, be able to keep silver steadv, and on the other hand they would not add to the permanent Indian debt in that coun try. He pointed out that bills sold there by the Iudian Government for all practical purposes might be regarded as silver. The v i . r. -i -e itmian uoverumeui were in mis unioriu- nate position. If thev forced their silver upon the market when there was no demand for it they reduced the price of silver, and gave rise to uuctuations which were most injurious to the Eastern trade, and if they borrowed money m that country thev onlv put off the evil day. It has therefore been suggested that they should issue Treasury lulls renewable irom time to time. Appa rently a considerable causa of the recent Uuctuations in silver may be reduced hy this arrangement. The coinage reports from all the mints except (arson City state the aggregate coinage for the hscal year at uUU.UUO, showing an increase over the last fiiscal vear of $14,000,000. Congress will he asked to increase the funds for coinage operations so the amount will approximate $1)0,000,000. The total amount of coin in the country is not less than $225,000,000. an increase du ring the iiscat year ot ?40,uuu,uuo. The ex ports of gold and silver have been about equal during the year; being as follows for eleven months: 1S7I3-77. 1S75-7G.

As the balance of trade is becoming more pronounced in favor of the United States, it is believed that the ac cumulation of specie in this country will continue at a more rapid rate than hereto fore, so that when the time of resumption comes round there will be an abundance of the precious metal in the United States. The New York Shipping and Commercial List of the 23d ult., says: "The proposition for a uniform system of coinage throughout the world, so that coins ot one nation may circulate in any other without the expense of rccomage, has met with so much favor among men with enlightened ideas that it is likely to be adopted eventually. The fact that the large amount of gold which has been thrown into the monetary circulation of the world within the last thirty years, has exercised so little influence upon the money market, or prices generally, is at variance with the predictions of financial writers up on both sides of the Atlantic. The increase in the production of gold as compared with former periods is enormous; ami the price of it has not declined, although the annual product has mereased nearly two fold with in a third ot a century Mining Journal. -Engineering and T.ETTKK FItOSI TUCSON. I-hiiTOi: Miner: Tucson is at present rapidly recovering from her severe attack of small-nox. by which she lost so many of her citizens. The town is improving con siderably. A 3Ir. Trainor, late of San Diego, and who now occupied Leather wood's old corral, is making very extensive improvements in the way of stalls, carriage houses, etc. He has, without exception, the finest stock of carriages, coupes, clarauccs, and phictons in the Territory, and with about seventy head of fine carriage-hordes, is prepared to furnish elegant turnouts fur any and all occasions. Business in general seems to be in a very healthy condition, notwithstanding the complaint of hard times. The spacious stores of Lord & Wil liams, Jacobs fc Co., and E. Lowcnstein & Co. are all doing a good business. We no tice a considerable qnantity of Soguarra fruit brought in by the Indians for sale, which ia really delicious, closely resembling the iig. The weather for the past week litis been exceptionally warm, and the nights almost too much for comfort. A Mr. Col ton, of of our city, lost his watch in a very mysterious manner, on the ICth inst., and now offers a a large reward for its recovery and the particulars of its disappearance. Occasional.

IU. Ucv. J. B. Salpointe, Bishop of Arizona and Southern Now Mexico arrived in town lait Sunday morning. Tuesday he left for the Little Colorado, by way of Palomas from there to Hot Spring reservation, Monica and sunrise. The people of the Little Color ado arc very anxious to have, a Priest statio ned at some settlement in Northern Arizona. The Right Rev. Bishop will probably select a place to build a church and school-house, on the Little Colorado for the wants of its people. Silver City Herald. The railroad company have done away with the class of fare known as second, and now onlv that, of first and third arc known. The Southern Pacific Railroad people have advanced the price on lit-class tare lrom Los Angeles to Sun Francisco $3, which gives the holders of tickets a chance to stop over anywhere on the route. The steam ship company, we learn have also raised the price on passage from Santa Monica to the Golden Gate City, thus keeping up with the railroad. The son of Frank P. Blair and the son of Ben Butler, who are in the graduating class at West Point, arc room-mates aud warm friends. ESTABLISHED 1864. i Senntor Booth at Sacramento, on the Fourth. "From the high vantage ground f the century we look back through the vista of a hundred years, hut the incidents of that day have lost none of their interest. Im agination may idealize them but cannot ex aggerate the importance of the consequen ces which flow from them and which broad en with the sun. Before lies the future, with its untried possibilities. The past at least is secure beyond the change of tim or the chance of fate. What would the his tory of the century be, with the United Stales left out ? What would the outlook of humanity be, if there were no United States of America? The beginning of a new century suggests some reflections. Our nation is no longer a parvenu. We cannot plead the "Jaby Act," or attribute indis cretions to the ebuilliencc of youth. We have attained our majority, and arc entitled to sit as an equal with the ciders at the council board of empire. Manhood brings new duties and responsibilities, which.de mand independence of thought and self reliance of character. We can no longer afford to depricate criticism, dress ourselves in the glass of the world's approval and ape foreign fashions and opinions. We must ftfind erect, not ia theboastfulnes of youth, but in the conscious strength of manhood, dare to think, speak and do the right, not beg the issue, but defy criticism and chal lenge fate itself to the lists. If the Ameri can idea is worth anything it deserves hon est utterance; if American life is worth living, it is worthy to be cast in an Ameri can mould." Ccttlnc Money. The mo3t unfortunate day in the career of any young man, is the day on which he fancies there is some better way to get money than to earn it; for from that feeling springs the many extravagant and visionary schemes which are indulged in for the pur pose of gaining a livelihood without labor. When a young man once becomes thorough ly infected with this feeling he is ready to adopt any means for the accomplishment of his object; and if his plans are frustrated, aud he is foiled in his efforts, upon the very crest of the wave which he has already mounted, and in full iew, is the tempta- t tion to crime, to shield him lrom disgrace, which he thinks must inevitably iollow m the wake of the defeat ; to those he yields. And the first ho realizes ho finds himself the violator of the law, a criminal in the eyes of the community, and an inmate of a pris on, awaiting trial all brought on for the want of a little manly firmness in the outset of life to prompt him to choose an avoca tion in life where the penny earned would bring with it sure reward. Tnen let our young men spurn the idea of obtaining money without rendering an equivalent; let them be ready and willing to occupy posi tions in life which will give them the best possible opportunity to develop their natural talent, and do good to others while helping themselves; in this way wc shall have a na tion of noble men and women, which will be a source of profit and pleasure to us and an object of wonder an admiration to tho world. Boston Investigator. It is stated that twenty thousand millions of matches are annually produced in tho United States, which requires two hundred and thirty thousand cubic feet of the best piue wood in their production. If this is true (and we do not doubt it"), the material used is equal to 2,700,000 feet of inch plank, which at $2.5 per thousand, would cost $59,000, and when turned into matches would produce $2,000,000. Tliers is, therefore, a big profit somewhere in the match business, or it costs "like smoke" to make them. Mr. Eddy, of Ottowa, Canada, probably manufactures at his establishment as many, if not more, matches than all the establishments in the United States. When wc visited his establishment, just one year ago, there were employed over 1,200 men, women and children at this manufactury, and it was said to be the largest establish ment of the kind in the world. If we ever go to that dreaded place below, wc will have the gratification of knowing that we hare smcilcd the odor, similar to that said to ex ist in the lower regions, and will only have to prepare ourself to taste its strength. Phrenologists, however, tell us that we aru too pure and hont ft to ever be numbered as one of those whoso sad lot it may be to go in that direction. The Denver and Rio Grande Railroad (San Juan Division), so important an auxil ary in the development of the great mineral resources of the San Juan country of Colo rado, was completed across the summit of the Yeta Pass, near Fort Garland, on the SthofJune. This Pass is 9,340 feet above tho sea level. It is higher by 1,000 feet than any jKiint on the Central or Union Pa cific railroad?, and is the highest elevation ever crowned by any railroad in Europe or North America, except Mexico. The track is laid with steel rails, and the division is now completed to Fort Garland. This road will eventually drop down into the fertile valley of the llio Graude on its western course to the waters of the Great Colorado, and will bind Arizona to her sister Terri tories and States on the east with an iron clasp, never to be unbound. Brtnxin at Yuma. As the subject has been canvassed to some extent as to when the S. P. R. R. Company were going to build a bridge which would span the Colorado, wc concluded that the attempt is about to be made trom the tact that tlioy have a steam pile-driver purchased to be used in driving piles, as shown by the following from the Sacramento Record-Union of the 11th inst.; "There has just been completed at the rail road shops a steam pile-driver, to be used in driving the piles for the Southern Pacific Railroad bridge across the Colorado river at Fort Yuma. It will be forwarded to its destination in a few days. Although Col, Ingcrsoll docs not assert the doctrine of annihilation after death, but simply says he don't know, circumstances of recent occurrence have convinced us that he is doing a great wrong in the world. Even granting that all he teaches is truth. if hj, succeeds in depriving one Christian of tho comforting hope ot meeting loved ' ones "beyond the vail," even thougli that hope be a false one, he has saddened that Chris tian's earth-life and made him a wretch.

Thcro is a movement south of the "divide' in Colorado to sepcrate that portion of the Stato from the northern section, aud organ ize the new Territory of San Juan, with its capital at Pueblo. This movement is doubt less due to the enormous overcrowded popu lation of Colorado. -.?-- ti '': -'-1 ITmcoU, ArirouB, June l, 1S77. tf II ! li i .
