In the East Indies, the Pambatees, or
snake-charmers, come from the mountains
called the Ghauts. They make a trade
of catching serpents, training them and
exhibiting them for money. These rep
tiles are commonly the cr&a-di-iwpdiLo,
the hooded or spectacle serpqpt, and of
)ther similar species. A Pambatee will
sometime; carry eight or more of them in
a low round basket, in which the serpents
lie coiled round one another.
As soon as the lid is removed from the
basket, the serpent creeps out of it. The
mnasler plays on an instrument somewhat

-It is mentioned in English pagers an
i coiscidenco that eleven members of the
house of Commtona die4 in 1869, and the
lame number in 1870. All who died last
rear belonged te the Liberal party.
It is not so mrch opportuitaty isat woe'
men nsed as qualitik '1lsw donot sue,
and in businein for the same reason that
men do not moneed--beeneae they are
timid, tame, unadventuroms, ineffeetve.
They have not mfeaeys eaterprise, perai
neer, spirit, daring. They are not 's
meg, ready is plan, fertile in reso.reen
Nothing else fails them for success. It is
not that they we poer, f the ranks of
our "merchant pramee? are replenished
fuom just such poverty as thear ITis not
political disability. Mien with politSeal
ability hare failed in just sneb careers, sad
women ith political diability have sou
eeeded. If this day men and weeen
bhould change pi es-the anoeesedul men,
and the unauoeessiaulwomen-I doubt not
that in five years everything would be
just as it is now. The thirty thousand
starving women would haie gene into the
stores and offices; would have lived com
fortably, dressed -astefully, never have
acquired a half usderstanling of their
bhoiness, nor a whole understanding of
what uerstanding business means, assil
the whole thing had slipped through their
bands. The tsirty thousad meen who
had tahen their places would at the start
have looked around them, seized the first
opening for making money, or made an
opening if none appeared, thrown away
the needle, combined forces, and in five
years be bullying the poor sewing-women
just the same as ever. And the poor sew
ing-romen would stand and take it just
as meekly as ever.
This is what all need for suecess, will
-will that takes no account of obstacles
except to overcome them. What is the
use of talking to women about wider op
portunities. when opportunities are dying
every day for want of being used? What
is the use of lamenting lack of employ
ment, when women are still feebly fumb
ling around in a jungle of employments?
Why talk about poor pay, wwjen it is
alxmost by suffereuce that women get any
pay at all. Women in trade are iwthing
btumen. If they are week, helpless, com
plaining men, we may as well acknowl
edge the fact; but, weak or strong, they
are men, and must be deojt with as men.
What does a man do when his pay is not
enough? If he is a common-place man,
one of the multitude, he joins a strike;,
which he has a perfect right to do. If he
is a very ignorant man, with utterly crude
notions of liberty and tyranny, of right
and wrong, he not only strikes work him
self but attemptaby force tawent lShis
neighbor from working, and thus. makes
himself a criminal and dangerous to so
aiety. - t 11 heis a man of metal, he
only works all the harder, and presently
smakes himself so necessary to his em
ployer Otat be becomes master of the
4tnation. When a man gets precisely
the service that he wants, a few dollars
share or less aen a very trivial matter to
Him. It is exactly sad *ith a wdshan.
What mb6ther of a househokIdwould hesi
tate between two dollars and a half to an
ordinal r heussemaid and three dollars to
one who would do the work exactly as
she wants it' done? Whla pung lady
would hesitate between paying ten dol
lars for an ill-fitting drees and fifteen dol.

bmnployed in telegraph ol~ees, and receive
from £fteeek to twenty dollars a week. II
is said that they understand the deal
as well en men, that they maniptalate more
deftly, and swe more faithful at their posta.
I do not know the wages of anale opera
tors; but, if the female operators surpass
then1 in skill anad service, they are in the
right way to win not only their own ease,
but the case of all women. Every wo-~
man who~egitimately succeeds in a legiti
mate business helps all women. And
when I go to one telegraph office ten
minutes after the hour of opening, and
find it closed; and to another, and meet
a woman, crusty, indiffetenst, and negli
gent, treatingine as if it were afavor to
permit me the use of the telegraph, my
annoyance ii not confined to my person
al inconvenience, but I think how surely
these women arc creating a preji dice
agiust all other wessan.
Women are sewing their lives into six
cent shirts; but I am informed that sa
first-clase workman oven in New York
earns fifteen dollars a week at a sewing
machine. It is not wealth; but meany a
mann who has spent thousands of dollars
on his apprenticeship earns less than that
in the pnlpit. 1 know a forewoman in a
sewing establishment who has a salary of
fifteep hundred dollars a year; and I

very exasperating to have a man in-tho

you do, and getting twice as much pay.
It is still more exasperating to have him
sit over you, and getting three times as
much pay. But where there is a glaring
discrepeany not only between a woman's
work and her wages, but between her
duties and her fitness to perform them,
it would be encouraging to see her efforts

Ta dmath at Willam H. Burleigh
removesa ether of the tried lalrers of '
the aaM-shvry dcase. He died ona
Saturday last, Marsh 18th, in the 60th
yearo t bi age.. He was the fourth of a a
talented family of spas of Rinaldo e
Burleigh, Esq., a graduate of Yale Col-'
legs, widely known as the preceptor of A
Plainfeld Academy, in Connecticut. ,
William, who early displayed his literary r
talents, learned the trade of a printer,
and in 1833 was employed as printer
and editoe of the Unity t, a newspaper ,
established at Brooklyn, Ct, by Rev.
Sammel J. May, with help ram' Mt.
Arthur Tappan, to enlighten the public
mind with regard to the outaages in Miss
Crandall's school for colored young ladies.
In 1886 he took the field as a lecturing
agent of the American Anti-esvery So
ciety, and then became editor for a
number of years at Pittsburgh. In
the split which took place in the anti
slavery ranks, he adhered to the side that
formed the LAberty party, supporting
James G. Birney for president in the
elections of 1840 and 1844. He was also
a faithful laborer for the Free Soil
party in 1848, and afterward for the Be- 1
publican party in 1856 and 1860. He
Was also for a time editor of a temperance
paper at Albany, and in 1855 was
reward by Governor Myron H. Clark
with an appointment in the harbor
service in New York, which he held until
removed by Gov. Hoffman, in 1871. He
was alwlys a zealous and popular orator
and lecture` .in the Republican cause.
