W fc GAML 3aMT.o1. b ti "If women were allowed to vote, I hold ofilce, and make laws, they would be the means of purifying politics and elevating the standard ' of morality among our officers and f representatives; and we should, w therefore, have better laws, and ad criminals would not be so often per mitted to escape their just punish- c" ment.. t So says a Female Suffrage news paper ; and I ask fora sign, unbe- e lieving Jew that I am, and read on de eagerly through a column or more ere describing the defects and declaim- w ing upon the disasters of our pres et laws, till I come to the conclu- l nuon of the whole matter in the final li p paragraph: : "When young women are permit- ~ ted to vote, they will notbe long in changing the unjust and tyrannical. laws which mnaCmade for them; 'at and we n~~o~ety expect that they will soon And some way to pre vent intemperance and the sale of s poisonous liquors, to shut up gamn ing-houses, and will prove that the arm of the law can be made power- a ful enough to overthrow even the social evil sl . .. And our legis lative halls will not so often behold inch dingracefnlsesrnes as at present, sad our rejirsesentatives will be obliged to be more dignified and wi more alive to the duties which theyUI are sent to perform." Certainly the absolute and speedy Ba prevention of the three great vices cit of society is worth foruming a newbi party for. Yo one will deny that y the rapid wecoess of women in biing- mi iug about a millemium which men tai have ben trying and faliag to bring ~ for centuries would he a victory tol brilliant enough to juetify all their yen eageraessto share in the ery.

The the imeedulous ad be pardoud if they withhold their faith until that way is more defaitely aucked out. Another organ of the -ame party wt is suiiantly speeile, and eafrms; mE "It will be understood thet we are a unit to help sleet in every town the man who is our friend; to help defeat in every town the man who is indifferent. soon no man as who is og our friend willstand a ly chance e! nomination. George William Curtis says; 'Behind every bb demand for the enlargement of the suffrage hitherto there was always a threat' It wil be so in the preset emse. Our threat must be an active a( determined organisation, in dead eareats to dig a politieal grave Ion a; every man who opposes the enfran chisemmnt of the women of Mama a cbuasttsL Oneis tempted to borrow the dia w lest of the street, and ask, "How is that for high?" The party, it seems will follow the simple standard of ';that fine old English gentleman who classifies his acquaintance by one rule; "D--d scoundrel, sir ; he is opposed to me I" or "First-rate fel e low, Smith ; he is my friend !" It D does not question a man s principles or character. It is enough that he be "our friend." However stainless and able he may have proved him- t self, however well he may have C wrought for his country in the ser- P vice of truth, freedom, and honor, P he shall give way to any charlatan I who may choose to ride into office o on the hobby of woman suwage, s and who is pefeetly indifferent on what he rides, so he rides in. o And is there not shown, in the construction put upon Mr. Curtis's words, an entire failure to compre hend their real scope ?. What sort of threat is it that has lain hitherto behind every demand for the en largement of the suiage ? In re covering from our late civil war, we were sore pressed. On the one side was the danger of putting the ballot into the hands of an ignorant t and inexperienced class, out of whom intelligenee,integrity, straight t forwardness, independence had been well-nigh crushed by genera tions of slavery. On the other side o were the ranks just conquered in rebellion, whose monopoly of the tb vote would be likely to betray the newly-won states into the hands from which they had been so hard- 0r wrested. The danger from dial y alty seemed more imminent than the danger of ignorance, and eman cipated slaves were entrusted with c the suffrage. Disaster to the nation was the threat which lay behind the demand for negro suffrage-a n demand made not so much by the negroes themselves as by the nation which incurred the risk. The threats which nave induced Eng land to enlarge her suffrage have in like manner concerned the public d safety. A strong and resolute pop- S ulace has made its wishes felt. Armed mobs have alarmed the cos- d todisas of the nation. Tumult, and violence, and quiet, ferce determin ation, and despair born of suffering have menaced the whole fabric of society, till old power recognised by new power and granted it seif-di rection in self-deuena.--relinquiehed a part of its parogative to retain itas1 continued existence. h tic ift *"CHAMPAGNE AND HEID SICK." 01 The assertion that "the number ha who never take Alcohol ([a aisim- tra alan iss mallfrace bids alcoholic we dubt.. that half the hum s over ten yesrs old, living now ormsany for- i mer age, ever more than barely we tasted any alcoholic beverage for We copjy the above from the 4 HineItreminds asof a story .,a told of Mr. Greeley, who, a few yearseago, inaneditarialdeseribingPs a public entertainmeg, stated that the there was "an sbosdmnt plof thi wmnes."

Sit t The New York Ie initA ty last isses very justly and ably rats forth the reasons for harmony, in - the rmaks of the republican party, to in th. following language: t "So deeply are we mpr..sed a union and hareaious'o- operation among Republicans that we are 1 compelled to regard ailure in this srpesp as but litti. better than Is taehwmy to the principles repro seated by the peaty. lor the pau. ty, coeilered metelys apolitical Fe gamimtio., we have no special asel; we ask none of its avors, and exzedt no emolument at its hands. ' But for the principles committed to ' its keeping, which it has hitherto maintained, and which, moreever, are indentifed with its auccess-as the party of anti-slavcry antecedents e that carried the country cutely through the war, reconstructed the rebel states on the basis of human ° ri± hts, placed the doctrine of equal 1 civil and political privileges in the fundamental law tf the land, has' t planted itself squarely on the side of national integrity, and withal made such a splendid beginning in i the payment of the public debt- r for thes principles, as opposed to the antecedents, aSliations, and pressat purposes of the Democratic party, we have an eerisst real. y We believe in the doctrines of the a one, and not those of the other; o and for this reason we shall do what we can to secure the success of the u one and the defeat of the other. 6 The real question, the ie ques- tI tion-the one that belongs to the issues of the hour, that to which all Republicans should address their ti most vigorous efforts-iaa not be- ?P tween cliques of politicians, between 4 Fenton men and Conkling men, w Sumner men and Grant men, be tween contending factions clamor ing for the spoils; but rather be tween the Republican party as an organized whole and its common foe in the Democratic party. The struggle is between these two great m forces, and will end in the triumph g' of one or the other. Which shall q% win and which shall fail? This is tb the question for every Republican in to consider, and for the present the only question that is worth consid eration. Republicans who would di sooner defeat their own party than of fail in their particular ends, greatly a need moral as well as political re conotruction. We contemplate them with no complacency whatev- ge ar. They certainly are foolish if so not false men. th sit Could we reach the ear of every de Republican in the land, we would m, exhort all to march into line, from it the highest to the lowest , and be pa determined to unite together in t giving the Democratic party a Wa- ca terloo defeat in 1872. It can be a& done, and it will be done, provided an Republicans quit themselves like a' men, and discharge the duty which they owe to themselves and their a country: What they have gained oti by fighting and voting must not an now be lost by either treachery or i lukewarmness. Let the little pot ty differencesas between men go to as the winds until the one great ques- of tion is setted. Thoes Republican. 30 if any there be, who eseek to stir up M etrifeand get up fections in their own ranks, and thus play in the tia hands of the Demoeracy,are aimply has traitors to the party: and the prin- be ciples which it represent., and wrill bemso treated by Tn. Inuraasrn.r If they cmannot honestly support the a s Republican party, then Ia them Be join the Democracy, and be done with it. This is no timefor half way Rspuhlinaas, and certainly not thea for Tammany Republicans. In the am great struggle befren as Istu s have "a lo~ngpufl, a stromg pufl, samda p.1l aliogether.'

Young men should eul al tivate the habit of planning their 14 i work beforehand. Think, every night what you have to do to-mor k row; and, every morning, what you Shave to do to-day.

It may also ho of TI interest to those people, old and thU young, who propose to enter into the state of wedlock: The lowest view to betaken of a rou divorce is that it is the correction s of a mistake. The court examines and decides that two persons who, after more or lees acquaintancehave ho made the most solemn possible con- a tract with each other, to live to- to gether for life, have discovered ..q somnething afterward which vitiates the contract and makes it impos sible for them to carry it out. It reN decides not merely that the contract evi may be held in abeyance, but that it shall be annulled, so that both parties may form a new one with bog somebody else, perhaps to renew we the mistake, and have it revised and a corrected again. Now it is certainly a grave question, whether it is wise and for the encouragement of good the morals to be constantly correcting asa such mistakes, instead of obliging **in the parties who have deliberately y made them to abide by them, as in other lees important contracts, end and bear the coasequencee. But it is also a question worth serious g consideration, whether it is not the duty of the State to prevent as well asto correct. There isgreatfIacility * Cd divorce. But there would not be the eo much if there were not greater woz end, and shut the stahhador aerou theshorseeis gone.
