filfotri of Police for the town of i
is ffpta eommimtoned yesterday by
of intemperance among the educated
English women to an alarming extent,
and asserts that -medical men foil to see
and. act np to their duty in this respect
It says': "A careful practitioner should
remember the peculiar sensitiveness of
women, daring certain portions of their
life, to the influence of narcotics; hence,
if he prescribes' alcohol for them at all, it
should not be for trivial ailmeqta, which
%re liable to recur frequently, and for
which the patient will only be too ready
to £>ply the agreeable remedy which was
found so efficacious before."
The same journal also condemns the
practice of allowing yonng girls between
the ages of twelve and fifteen the use of
alcoholic stimulants of any kind on ac
count of any real or imaginary delicacy.
It farther remarks, "the practice is ut
terly unjustified by any physiological need
(in the absence of positive disease) and
the results are most disastrous." From
the extensive notice Which this subject re
ceived at the hands of the London presa, it
was supposed ip be a sensation rather than
existing reality. It is asserted by the
nabu and under climatic influences which
do the strongest man make alcohol a

"The sensation of sudden relief," says
the Lancet, "replacing acute pain or nerv- I
poison. There are certain quiet "ladies'
restaurants" in all seaboard cities, so
| quiet and modest in appearance that gen
tlemen are not tempted into them,
where respectable women resort for the
stimulant which is probably inaccessible
at home. Deaths from mania-a-potu have
occurred this winter, And that not in the
debased lower classes,* but among cul
tured, delicately-raised women, some of
them young, generous, lovable girls.
This is an ugly ahd almost incredible
Can we say teat this sin does not lie at

Ota* Vbodaad lodging ean be obtained
for money *t*ny hotel, and to be over
solicitous aboatouch matters to the ex
o^psion of that better entertainment, the
cordial greeting, the kind, inquiries,
the giving of
time and attention,
j is a gross and mistaken view of this social
I virtue. The New Testament story of Mary
I and Martha well illustrates the difference
I between lofty and contracted views on
I this subject Both sisters welcomed their
I divine visitor with love and joy ; but the
I one appreciated the fact that he had se
I lected their home in preference to many
others which were doubtless open to him
from personal preference for their society
and not for sake of the superior fare and
softer bedding which their- house might
afford. A due attrition to these matters
is well—nav, is indispensable; but such a
solicitude "about many things" as de
prives the guest of the presence and com
pany of his host is not the best kind of hos
pitality. Sometimes, indeed, the desire
to overload the table with luxuries pro
ceeds from ostentation, which simply dis
gusts; but even when such over-solicitude
springs from a sincere bnt mistaken no
tion of the dnties of hospitality, it is apt
to defeat its own purpose by making its
recipient ill at ease, and warning him in
directly not soon again to repeat a visit
which costs his entertainer so much
anxiety and expense. Thus, by over
doing matters, some well intentioned
persons simply succeed in driving from
their doors those best worth entertaining.
No man is called upon to discommode
himself greatly for the sake of hospitality.
It is, or ought to be, an every-day virtue,
not an act of self-sacrifice. The homely
Republicanism in New York is purify
ing itself under the impulse of the new
State central committee. The lines were
not sufficiently well drawn before, and'a
large number of Republicans were al
lowed to hold office under appointments
from the Tammany Democracy. This
rendered them lukewarm on election days,
and the city of New York has been al
lowed to go Democratic by such
lonpd to go Democratic by such over
whelming majorities that the honest vote
I of the county, which has always been Re
I publican, would not overcome them. The
new central committee .adopted the plan
of refusing to allow any Republican irho
held an appointment under Tweed to be
placed in nomination for office on the Re
publican ticket. The effect has been
very signal in creating a livelier interest
in our own party, while it has taught
these middle men that if they hope to
succeed hereafter they must quit their
Democratic affiliations. Not only has tbi»
policy been beneficial in the city of New
York, bfft it has had an immense effect
in the Legislature at Albany, where
Ta mm a n y managed to carry through
many of Its most rascally measures by
corrupting certain weak Republicans.
This game is now blocked, for the Re
publicans held a caucus on Saturday last,
at which it was resolved that their votes
should be cast as a unit against Tweed's
contemplated impositions on New York,
and that any Republican who bolted the
decision of the cancns should ah once be
read out of the party. This defeats sev
eral rascally schemes, and saves the city I
of New York from being plundered to the I
extent of millions for the purpose of I
carrying the next presidential election.
Weed and his followers are amazed and
dismayed at this new development, for
since its proclamation he has tried in
yain to rally a single Republican to vote
for his measures; and, as the Legislature I
is tied between the two parties, Tammany I
is lively to go home empty-handed. A
little management is a good thing, and
strict party lines are saving dispensa- I

Could these people be assisted ahd en
couraged to find homes in Louisiana and
Texas, where labor is well remunerated, a
doable blessing might be conferred. The
resources of these States eould be fully de
veloped by a people who would become
comfortable and happy in the work of
adding to the wealth of the country.
The telegraph informs ns that Bepre.
sentative Wind ns, a Kepublican member
of the New York Assembly, has sqjd him
self to the Democrats, and that in conse
quence of this corruption the Tammany
ring has succeeded in passing its objec
tionable measures. This announcement
will be seized upon to denounce the en
tire Nepnblican party as venal, and Demo
crats will virtuously demand its over
throw. What if we say that the Repub
lican party has cast this man Winans out
of its ranks? What if we say that the en
tire Democratic party engaged in the
work of corrupting this faithless indi
vidual, and that it is now enjoying all the
fruits of his venality? How will this
jfiace the blame? And if through the
measure of this rascality the city of New'
York is submitted to limitless plunder
ing, and the national government passes
into the hands of the most nnprinci pled
political ring in the United States, where
is the sin to be placed, on the back of the
party that cast out and branded as a traitor

these questions to honest men for their
serious consideration. Seventy-five thou
sand dollars is the price that the tele
graph informs ns was paid for this actGf
bargain and sale. If out of twelve men
one could be found to sell the Saviour of
the world, it is not totally unaccountable
that in a body of sixty-three Republicans
one could be picked out who would foil
before the temptations of the Democracy.
The penalty to Winans is that be is to
be published in all the Republican papers
of New York as an apostate.

A very becoming silence has fallen upon
the Democracy, concerning the letter that
was published in Springfield, Massachu
setts, about Louisiana affairs. It is said
that the Kn-klux are hunting for the
anthortof the obnoxious epistle, and that
a dreadful " cord and dagge/ordeal" will
be perpetrated upon him if he does not
explain that he was drunk at the time he
wrote the dreadfnl revelation. This ex
cuse goes a long way to palliate offenses
against the Democracy.
True love never enjoys a smooth chan
nel. The excess of affection which over
came the Bulletin for Speaker Carter last
week has either met an obstruction, or it
is allowing silence to suggest suspicions
that "concealment is gnawing at its dam
aged cheek," or something of that soit
Let it bubble.
The most valuable and important inter
ests ever controlled by a single corpora
tion in *this State are those of the Cal
casieu Sulphur and Mining Company.
The valne of the sulphur deposits are cal
culated by millions of dollars, and the
intelligent secretary and treasurer of the
company has estimated the value of each
share of the stock at fifteen hundred dol
lars as soon as the sulphur is brought to
the shrface.
The assessments on the ordinary stock,
which are comparatively light, pay all
the current expenses of the company, in
cluding salaries of its officers, which are
sufficiently large to induce them to de
vote all their time to the interests of the
I '
vote all their time to the interests of the
company. *
We have advocated tli$ right of the five
thousand shares of ordinary stock to rep
resentation in the board of directors, not
because of any dissatisfaction with the
acts of the present board, but because,
under the charter, they have a right to be
By article %ight of the charter it is pro
vided that when the ordinary stock is all
subscribed three may be added to the
number of directors.
If this provision
should not be - conformed to, the hojders
of this five thousand shares of stock will
continue to be liable to taxation without
representation, and they will have no
remedy against frequent assessments that
may be made by the directors representing
the full paid and preferred stock.
Since every dollar of the working funds
of the treasury is derived from assess
ments on the ordinary stock, it is not un
reasonable that the holders of this stock
should be represented on the board. A
meeting of the stockholders would cer
tainly bring about this result.
We might add that the duty of salaried
officers does not consist in depreciating
the stock to a point below tho amount of
actual paid assessments, but rathef, in
representing all the foots connected with
the value of the mines, the resources of
the company and the ultimate value of
the stock, which is of arithmetical calcu
lation. To advise holder* to sell stock
at eight dollars on which ten dollars hpg
been paid, ill order that an officer of the
company or his friends nufy buy it on
speculation, is not exactly what the of
ficer gets bis six thousand dollars a year
lie writer at this neither wishes to
hay or sell this stock,. andtf what hss
been written in these columns has called
attention to the duty of officer* and stock
holders, it has been in a spirit of unkind
ness to none bnt of justice to all.
The directors will bold a meeting this
evening. Upon their action will depend
the necessity of a special meeting of
stockholders, who are united in the de
termination that their rights shall be re
