Mr. Ruggbsa con aidertnl the plan of the Monetary Con ference waa sufficiently metrical, and that any new scheme seeking a greater metrical conformity would keep the United Blai.es iu ptrjittual iaolatiuu. Tlie a-luptiou of a unifunn syisteiu by ten of He European natio!i is certain ly a ktroug argument in favor of the standard they have used, and kffanis an inducement to this country to make the slight change requited, in order to aiwuiuilato our coinage in value to it V bile it is important to note tbe prog reaa iu Europe, it is well, however, to couMider that, iu connection with tbo oountrios of both tbe American conti nents, tbe mutter boa political and com mercial interest to the United States, as the circumstances that have induced the ten European nations to adopt a uniform aUndard exiot bore, although not, of course, to the same extent as where tbe populations are larger and the intercouih more extended. liut tbeeo conditions render this a moat op portune time to introduce tbe matter, as tbe change cannot be made without great difHculty, aud when all the Amer ican nations bavo a standard nimilar to that of tbe United Stutos, it will render it more eaty to establish a uniform coin age among all civilized countries, as the inducement to do so w ill be great er than at present.

In order to proltct the truck across the "snow.liue," the managers of tbe I'licina lUilway have constructed a scries of sheds, or ratbur oue large buthiing, to keep tbe snow entirely from the track. This shed is lurnly- livo mila in lenjlh, sixteen feot in width, and sixteen feet iu bbight, not includ ing tbe pilch of the roof. It ia put up in the most substantial manner, all tbe timbers used being of the best quality to be obUincd. The sides are inclos ed, and were it not for the fact that day light penetrates through tbe inter stices through the boards, tbe whole af fair would be very like a huge tunnel Tbe building is braced together in a most peculiar manner, and is, in addi tion, firmly bolted to tba rock wherev er tbe road nears the face of a cliff. Where snow-slides are to be feared, an extension of tbe roof is carried to the cliff, so that falling niasaes shall pass over tbe building and lodge on the oth er side. In many places where aide tracks are located, the building is wid er than tbe figures given above. More ban 10,000,000 feet of lumber have been used in its construction.

The effort put forth against it are a"d the milder as the fact becomes more and more ap-, parent that it is steadily gaming strength and favor. i Sneers and disparagements may sometimes answer for arguments, but Anna ft Dickenson, Lucy felons and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, are too well known aa being fully competent to in struct, even some I'residenU and Vice 1'restdeiiU in tbe fundamental princi pals of American Government, to have such kind of attempa at detraction ef fect their position. Their words have been so widoly beard and read, and as pioneers in tbe great woik of establish ing Female Equality, their names will go down ia history to bo reverenced by many coming generations. Iq taking i:p tbe subject of "Woman's It:gbt" there are two things to be con sidered. In the firttt place what is there in womans present condition thatned amelioration, aud in the next, bow is the amelioration to be effected. There may be nothing new to say on the sub ject, but by continually saying over what has been said, woraau w ill at hod become familiar enough with it to un derstand its merits and then the cause is won. Thiwe who most persintently insist that women have nothing at all to com piaiu of, are moist BDiious to impress upon the female inind that their sphere is to educate the young. That educa ting the youug comes properly within wonians sphere is generally acquiesced in; but that women havo no rights or duties outfiide this educational circle, we are not willing to admit. Ikcauso, naturally, there are more women than there arc common Kchool, -moro young womon who aspire to be teachers than thei c ore schools to be taught.' And as the prico of female labor, like the price of all other kinds of labor, is governed by the great Law of Supply aud De mand; low wages will as a consequence exist so long as tbo surplus of labor ex ists, and bo amouut of appeals to phi lanthropy, 00 amount of argument as to tho justice of the matter will ever in duce a community to pay a teacher ten dollars a week when just as good can be bad for two and a half. This is why we object to being limited to teaching as the only means by which women are allowed to earn a pittance for their own support. But .insufficient remunera tion is not the only evil attendant up on such restriction. Our teachers, as a general thing, are tbe duughters of well to do people, who have brought them up respectably, and they, being now grown up, feel it incumbent upon them to do something, if they can, to help themselves. Teaching is the only thing consistent with respectability which they can do, and as their chances for getting a school to teach is always precarious they unanimously consid' er their chances for getting mar ried. In accepting or reject ing an offer of marriage, the reada bility of the suitor is considered, and if he is reppecUble, and of pverage intel ligence the offer is accepted. And here is a monstrous evil, which is the root of all the evils complained of in the preseut condition of women: That she should bo obliged to marry, feeling no love, nor evcu inclination, becaime of her inability to earn an adequate sup port for herwlf. The amount of misery aud unhappinesa which such a slate of i thing ontails upon the families thus formed is unthought of. And I doubt if the George Washingtons who are lucky enough to be bora at al), are much better taught, reared as they must be amid continued repininga, faultfiindings, recriminations and Mold ing, than they would be in a state of society where love and a similarity of tastes and dispositions were tbe govern ing motives in forming the marriage relation. "A Evader" thinks every true wo man should be satisfied to perform the duties of maternity, and consider her self sufficiently represented in tbe Gov eminent by her sous. This is the only , , , .... , . t 1 avstem which has hitherto txen tiieJ, and "A Iwiader" thinks it works better than one w hieh has not been tried It is true that George Washington and Abraham Lincoln were both born and reared under tbia tyatero, but we can not argue from exce4ional caws. We must draw our inference from tbe present condition of tbe great man of ! society aa it exist, and what is the re- j tend ta better tbia condition of things, : How ? Jjt a negro suffrage wul tend to better tie t-egro'a cond-tioti.by ; making their right and person re- ; pected.

Bot w ho, if they succeed in guid ing their own children to a life of vir tue and honor, are pointed out aa mod el of true women, contented to per form their true duties in their own sphere. But not even all these favor ed cbildreu are now saved. Tho pre valent evils of tlie times snatch many to destruction. Alcohol in some foini tempts them every day, card playiag entices tbtm to late hours and ditue- lute BH.Hociates deprave their morals ia spite of parental tfTorts. They are swayed as the great majority nre sway ed, by tbe prevalent tendencies of tbe times, aud tbono are degenerate toade so lY the course wo have said. And these mother.1) will sign petitions agaiBst Female Suffrage. Their iiiRtdncta are womanly and true, but they do not re alize bow vital tho question i, to tlscm selvee, how close it is to their onu heartliHtonea. Their minds have ben divrted by caricatures and ridicule of those who oppose the course, and wbieh represent its advocates an "strong mind ed" women in short dresses, forcing themselves into masculiue society, and insisting npon being heard on all occa sions. Portraying the dot nest jc state by pictures of a meek looking man sit ting amid confusion foedicg the baby with a spoon while bin wife is attend ing apolitical meeting, insidiously neck. ing by such means to i until into tbo public mind, that with tbe right of suf frage bestowed npon them, women would desert their bomeii aud take to tbe field of politics, making speeches and chewing tobacco, to tho utter de moralization of society, and undermin ing of all domestic felicity. All this is of course revolting to ev ery true woman, but it is as utterly ab surd as it is revolting. There are many male politicians by pro.' ossion who are, no doubt, geniuses born for tbe posi tion; but tho great nn jority of toters follow other professions, and their right to vote does not seriously inter fere with their private occupations. TlAia, "reasoning from what we know" women woulJ cast tin tit votes at elec tions and return home to perform far bettci than they do now tbe duties which their womanhood devolves upon them. Thko.

Tbe Visible Admixture law passed by the Democratic Legislature of Ohio shows the "ruling passion strong in death" of its party originators. The act provides that any person, not a white male citizen of the United States, who shall vote, shall be punished by im prisonment in tbe Penitentiary from one to five years. It also provides that any person who shall induce a negro to vote shall be punished by imprisonment in the Penitentiary from one to five years. In tbe same State tbe same vi olations of law in tbe case of a non-resident white man or aa unnaturalized foreigner are punished by 0110 to six months (instead of one to five year as above) confinement in jail. The dis ci imination shows tho Democratic ma lignity ogainst the negro whenever suf- j frage is concerned.
