The sessions of this fcodj bave been very quietly conducted. Mrs. SUnton wears well. She is a plcaant-look ug cmio, motherly in exprmmon, and with, nnr leti b theetde 01 her face. Her countenance loo en iresh one wholesome, llev. Miss Olynwia Brown wen attired in a i luck ah dress, and doffed her hat while in the imoiinir. Her hair is done D in tbe tle Of two year ago, aad she altogether does not took very formidable. She has acoepted the pastor ship of a church in Newbnrg, in this Stat, and will tbortly enter npou tbe de-charge of her duties. Rhe has a girlish look abont her. No colored women took any pait in the meeting. Mrs. btone announced that Mr. lAwrence would sinr a long winch be bad prepared for the occasion, - entitled 1 he World Will Be the Hotter for It " Ihe en ft was received with applause, and had some hits ou lashion. It has a very p easant melody. Mr, Beach, a craty man, was then introduced to the audience by the Preslacnt as a friend who had rone a long-Uisianco tospak 10 thorn. Mr. ftjach todaigod in a harangue, in which the French Kcvo- 3 rauon, iinenr, ino uhis ol iuau, theology, and hair V a theusand other things were mixed up. Toe red bu, vtB uruurui iu , wuu iiin papuunvs iim their happy hunting-Holds, tie spoke aoout the pleasure ol once meeting a ship in the open sea, with an lianas dead, and with no rudder. The gentleman was untimely choked off by Miss Amut By , who eaid that tho object of the meeting this morning was work s she therefore deemed bun oat of order. I he first element of success was the formation ot clubs anu the diptiioution ol tracts, tbe visas of lecturers, and the drawing of the attention oi tho people to tbo question. A series of meetings won a also be held. The first wou d bo organized in hew York city ou the 20th of December, and from that time would be held a I over the titato The pub. lie needed to be arouted, and would bo. In itoches tcr the men and women teachers in the schools had asade application to have Ueir salaries raised, 'ihe fioara ol Education accedoo to tbe demand, and stave the men tilOO more, but the women could not have the increase Why was this f It was because tbe lutentecn men had votes and the ouo hundred and rich teen women had not. Ihe men could make and unmake lioards of Education, but the poor v-oiiuu could not. In Auburn, something ot the same kind had happened. The women istmed au Ironical card of thaucs, uut were obiged to with draw it. She thanked Heaven that there were one or two, however, who hud not. They wore noble women. It is ti.e same as at tho South, botore the war, when a Northern l"mocrat went down there and nsked the sluve if they warned their needom f hey replied no, for they would lose favor with their owners. Northern womt n were in the ame condition, and did nut dare to speak their opinions trcoly. lake the eight-hour movomoiit. Whore in the Northern country was there a uoliti ciaa vt ho cared anything for a mture who had arrayed fainixolf against tho idea? The reason was, that the meulhad votes, but the women bad none. Curve, then, the ballot, and they would be'ablo to aroiect themselves. Women aro taxed, and this was another reason uha they should vote. One woman in this city, who makes shirts, paid $200 taxes. Do vou think she docs not want to vote? She instanced some remarks of Anna Dickinson lut summer. Mis. Kinebury, of Philadelphia, rthon took the floor It was did that our forefathers, when they declared that all wero created equal, had made a nus'ake. Women c aimed an intrinsic right to the ballot, and wou d continue to claim. Those who advocated th.ur views were in the professor's chair, piloted ships, ;ommannod armies, and wrote books. Women were placed below the men who scarcoly un derstood our lati"iiafo, and would soil tboir vote lor a glass of whisky. Negroes who do not o .vn $250 were bot er oft' than women, for they were not sub j'Ct to uuect taxation, while women were liable to have their property taken to found and carry on schools and colleges, where she could not send her daughter and sister. Boys could go to schools of . lence and art. whllo girls were Bent home to crochet a littlo. Politicians suv It is no use to uv to pro pitiate the women, for they would bave no votes, t! women could vote it would introduce a new element ' into natiouul life, and an inspiriting one. AU the Frcedmen's Bureau B lis that do not contain lmpar t al sutliaee are a cheat to that class who have helved us through the dreary wastes ot the South. It you persist iu the sin of not giving equal rights, the (south says: '-Take ihe btum out of your own eves, and iree your own niggers." If JSortuoru women were freed it would be the first great step, borne say that women shouid learn of their hus bands. How if they have none? Charles L. Heinond said that MUs Anthony had omitted tbe most important portion of her duties, hhe did not of urn do such things The omission was ot money, and be felt sure that all here present would be pleased to contribute. Conquer your pre oices. it possible, and give liberally. Miss Anthony announced that the Commlttoe would now pass around the house, and take contri ' buttons at present, as well as pledges for the future. They had received 100 by letters already. Some had given us sums of money hvt spring, and had now increased it. Anna Dickinson had given 10'). Miss Anthony, having secured one ot the re porter's hats, then went around the hall, asslstod by some other ladies, while Mr. Pillsbury rend the ad dres ot tho women to the people of the Mate, and it was then adopted. It is as lolows : APPEAL TO THE MEN AND WOMEN OF 'KW YORK Your State is to bold a Convention in the oomiug year to revue its Constitution, and the Aintricau .Equal li ghts Association proposes a series ot meet ings, and other operations to induce such changes in toe conditions ot suffrage as will remove all dis tinctions on account of color or sex, aud it is confi dently hoped and believed that every triend ot im partial justice and liberty will give a cheerful and hearty co-operation in the work. The eightoentb century gave tbe world toe Declaration ol Indepen dence, tho war of tbe revolmion, and the Constitu tion of the United States, but only in the Hgbt of the nineteenth century are these sublime phenomena to be interpreted lor us. From thetiovernaient, the civilization, and religion of Great Britain we derived our chattel slave synteui. But it survived the pen of Jtflorsoo, tho sword of Washington, and the wisdom, humanity, and states, manshlp oi the founders and trainers of the Uovorn ment, and until far louder thunders than Bunker Mill and Saratoga dashed it to tbe ground, aud a most whenied the Government itself with it in a common tutu. And tbe terrible lessons of this last war lor freedom will ail be in vain, sho ild ve aow attempt to .rolay our foundations iu injustice and oppression. Out ot the Jaws ot rebellion and treason was the national salvation snatched by tbe hand of negro valor And thus, surely, has that race earned the right to full citizenship and equality in tbe State. Even Jellorsou declared, more than halt a century ago, that ''whoever fights aud pays taxes has the right ot suffrage," against the world. But tbe right of humanity, oi manhood. Is older, is higher, and ot diviner appointment than any other. If the right to liberty aud pursuit ot happi ness be the gilt and endowment ot tbe Creator, then Hurelv is the rigi't to the ballot the ouly possible achievement and conceivable assuranoe and guar antee in republican governments. And on this ground the claim of woman is no less than that of man i but base aud degrading as has been the posi tion ot tbe negro in the Government of the State of Dew York, that ot woman it tor below even nu. ai no price within human power to pay can she arrive at equality of action iu niaktug or cxeouting the Government she is compet ed to support and obey. In the making or executing no law, however deeply her own interests or hapumess maybe in volved, can she bear a part. She is found guilty ol of a erlme, not of a eolor, but of a sex and all her appeals to courts or oommuuities, or equality and justice, are in vain, oveuhn this demooratlo and Christian republic She is a native, trev-born citi zen, a property-bolder, a taxpayer, loyal aud patri otic. She supports uersuil, aud in proportiouable part, tbe schools, colleges, universities, churches, boor-bouses. Jails, prisons, the armv, the navy, the whole machinery ot Uoveinmont, and yet she has no vote at tbe polls, no voice in the National Councils. 06 OAS gUlUrU (rcl wuiuwvui. v. uUuiiirUT and charity, has ioundod aud sustained churcbe. established nmslons, edited jouruala, written and Dtiblished Invaluable treatises on economy aad history, social nd moral, and on philosophy in ail iu departments, filled honorably proieisor'i chain, (overned nations led armies, commanded ships dts-J-overed and:descnbed new planetB, and particularly ixDlored thewho.e realm of scientifio researcbee, and Siv because, in lile's allotment she Is female. !nt male-woman, not man, the cuise of Intononty mSwm to ber through all her generations.

Like the Southern lreedmen, she too has had her Civil KightK Biit hut like all these, it is to be compared to tbe Dred Soott docia on itself. The power that gives can take away, but of that power woman is no part. Mr. Sumner says the ballot Is the one thing needful to the emancipated slave. Wilhout ti he oooiare his liberty is an allusion, a jack-o'-lantern, which '.ie will pursue in vain. With out the ballot, he reiterates, the slave becomes only sacrificed. And shall it not also be pre-emuionily so with women, formed by A mighty power a little lower than the angelsf Hor ruling lords ant masters have, by legislative prescription, plunged her, not a little, but immeasurably, beiow myriads ol the human race, whose only claim is that by some inscrutable reason they were so consiituted as to stand men in the isbes of the census. In the American Equal Hights Association it is determined to piosecute an agitation which shall at least wae the nation to a now consciousness of the injustice sullen d by the prescription occasioned by rave and complexion. To the indus.rial, the hard toiling, the property-producing womon of New York ,tbe appeal will ho especially mude to cotuo to tne rescue ot their own long-lost rights. The angel ot a con stitutional convention is soon to come down and stir the water. Let all who need healing has. en to the I aptism. Nor is it one of tao hoait cueering s.gus of the times that multitudes ot the Intel igi ut v. onion ot the country are last waking to a tu.l consciousness ol the wrongs tbev sunVr. Evon the war has taught Invaluable lessons on the dignity and tbe worth of women in a thousand new rpheres. Our Florence Nightingales have not beon ouo, but many, yta thousands. Woman, as well as irecdmon, saved the nation in lis hour of peril, aud invested herself with new dignity, demanding now distinc tion. Now, emphatically, is hor hour. But no com parisons need be instituted, none scarcely nued be urged, as to whose is ihe paramount claim.

Mr. Lawrence favored the audienco with a song, in which he declared that iu die good tiiuo coming there would bo no evil I'oliuciaus, doctors, lawyers, etc. would all he abolished.

What mother iramod tho charac ter ot Anuroiv Johnson t Enough fuch sentiments had been said. She could weep for tho weakness ot her tex, whose to!o view was that ot a husband, and whose acmo was wodded love I Sho hoped for new and bolter things, and before long woman would step forward and claim the rights of hor sex liberty, to vihich we have to long been a stranger a liberty which will meiit all the wrangling ele ments of earth, and unite all the fond ligamomsof love. This is the liberty we claim. Toe lady was received with the appluuo which wo always accord to a pretty wouiau. Miss His bee is but twenty vents ot age, and is decidedly pretty. Mis. btanton delended tbe song which we had just heard. Some had thought it strange; sho did not. When woman got the reward for their labor, mere pleasure can be obtained, and all women would then be comparatively rich. Iheu men would not be afraid to marry, and no old maids or old bachelors would exist. Mr. barker FiUsbury said that we were talking about a new revolution. It was necessary to under stand what we were talking about. When our Government was lor mod, the old systems and forms ot tbe British Government wero retained. This is true, and we do net wih to imitate all their faults. Edmund Burke predicted the French Kevolmion, and we are in the habit of predicting a revolution. When we say we are the Suito we speak truly, lor the Sta'e is made up of us. We rest our clulms on a'l of humautv. We aro greater than the Constitutions of the past, and we do not propose to attire the new goddess in all the old gar ments oi tbe past. We are to have new toruis ot government. Our fathers formed the Government lor whue men, not lor black men or for whito women. It has required. a tour years' war to solve the problem of a black man's liberty. It may be true that the regeneration of woman needs a bap tism ol blood, it was certain that if it were not erauied it would some day como. The armies ol the t'nion had marched into tbe lie d to uphold slavery. General Butter had endeavored to return the slaves of tbe South. It took three years lor the black man to gain the right to liberty. When he bad busily gained it we would not do him justice. The .President showed what be was willing to do. Slavery Ib now dead, aud dead torever slavery, in its last dying agony, had stung the President and killed him. Even now we are unwilling to do jus tice to the black man, so we bave not approacbod the questions ot woman. Out time is absorbed In tbe question whether we can reconstruct the Union without doing justice to the negro. He did not be lieve that the present man who occupies tue 1'resi dential chair would ever be a martyr. Evening Session. Rev.

The address to the people was again read and adopted a second time with applause. Susan U. Anthony illunrated the reasons, pecuniar and otherwise, which should Induce woman to claim the tial'Ot. It would enable her ao to innueuoe po in cians as to obtain greater wages, and the mere laot ol her having the power would accomplish this re sult, bho inquired whether tbero was any woman here so modest that if her livluir should become greatly increased the would refuse to cast a vote to gain this consumption. Woman now baa but a mere subsistence, hhe ueeds more, and the way to get it is to have the ballot.

BOBMBLE OP TO AGE IN CHICAGO. A Woman Stripped Naked and Brutally Abased She Is Found the Next Morning Dead In the Street. From the Chicago font, November 19. This morning, upon tbe Coroner's book was entered the simple notification that a womiin had been fonnd dead near Fox & Howard's machine shop, Bridgeport. "Some miserable victim of Intoxicating drinks" was the natural comment on such an occurrence which at once btiircested Itselt. But In the circumstances nt'cnillnc the death of this unhappy woman there is contained a depth ot tragedy, a brief but terrible tale of suffering and otitraire, which may be exported to arrest the attention of the most hard-hearted and callous. First we see her enter a saloon at Bridgeport, kept by one Mrs. Maboney. At the bar, among others, is Mr. J. It. McNulty, who keeps a grocery store at the corner of Iletiben street and Archer road. His attention Is particularly attracted to her, chiefly by his noticing thut she is attired with more than ordinary neatness, and that her appenrsnce denotes mat she does not belong to the class of women wno are to be seen visiting saloons. 'Mrs. Muuoney inquires ot her what she wants. 8he answers in a vague, bewildered manner that she does not know. She is then told that she cannot De allowed to stay rhere; that she must incontinently leave. She b- gins to weep piteously, and is thereupon (iicsiioned as to where she bas come from. In the same htii-bcwildered manner she answers, 'From down town." "You ought to be ahnmed ot ourtelt to be goinc about iu that condit on; on, a woman,-' tu.vs the ibtlitrnuut Air-. Ji.i iioiiey, ami she is again ordered to take her M'H off. Mr. JIcNulty followed her to the door, and pitjiuely watched her as she wandered away into the storm and darkness. Tbe rain was tailing in torrents, and a chilling wind was blowing over the bleak prairie. She disap peared in a short time, and in a few minutes her appearance at tbe saloon was wholly lorgotten. At 10 o'clock she again emerges from the ob scurity, aud we again see once more her pallid lace, as she presents herself at the same saloon, and ajks in piteously pleading tones to be nilowed to reM. Mrs. Mahoney is moved to compassion, and questions closely, ami not per haps without otne womanly tenderness. Niie explains that she has been . enaaccd as a cook at Mrs. Iiiilgei', who keeps an establishment rear the docks at UrMc jiort. She bus cot tipsy, she said, and hd been turned out of doors. She was wet and weary, aud did not know whore to go, and aaln sn implored the owners ot the saloon to give her shelter for the night. Mrs. Mahouey was will ing that her request should be granted. Her husband also thought that if he had ha I any outhouse or barn in'o which she could rreep, he might extend his charity so far. As he hud no such accommodation, the thing wa impossi ble. Whatever came ol it. she musi tramp. Certain "boys" who were in the saloon sup ported the landlord, and tikine her by the tlioulders, summarily turned her out of doors. We see nothing lurther of ner lor a time. AH the dwellers in that neighborhood were warm in bed when some one knoeked at the door of a Mrs. Brown, on the Archer road, and told her to get up, that there was a man dying outside her door. She started up with alacrity, but not carinir to open her door until she should ascertain more ot tbe man who spoke, she told him if there was any one there, he staled, to go to the lock house opposite and inform the watchman. The man went away, and. looking alter him. Mrs. Brown noticed that he did not go as directed, but -walked ' briskly oil' in an opposite direction. It appeared to her, as she looked after lilm. that he even started to run. There was something suspicious about th whole atlair, und people do not like to oneu their doors at night, even on such summons, unless they have some assurance there is no foul play meant. Yet the woman could not rest. It might be that there was some fellow-being dvim at the door, and the thouaht of allowing htm lo do so uncared for she could by no means brook. She consulted with ber husband, and the two decided to go out and make a search at any race, to 3ee it there was auy tiuth in the man's statement. Looking out cautiously, they were unable to see any one at first, but extend I ntr their inspection some distance Irom the door they at last became aware that some one, or something, was leaning upaeainstthe wall at the end of the hruse. They questioned, but got no answer. Then, ap proaching, they discovered to their horror that the object was'a woman; that she was speech less and helpless, and that she was completely naked. Her lialr was hanging in wet and tangled masses around her shoulders, and her face and body weie covered with mire. Taey tried to louse her to speak, but no word could be evoked from her already cold and frozen lips. Then they raised her from her recltnng position, aud the sank down helpless at their ieet. she was conveved into the house, where she almost instantly expired. She had been allowed to utter no word which could explain theconditioti in which she was fonnd. If she could have giveu a hint that might lead to the discovery of the worse than demons into whose hatids sh had ialleu, the power to do so was denied her. In the morning Mr. McNulty, who had seen her when she first visited the saloon, was in formed that a woman had been found dead. Ho hastened to the place where the body was lying, ad removiug from the face tbe carpet with which it was covered, recognized at ouce in the careworn lineaments those of the unhappy wan derer whom he had encountered the night before, PROTECTION FOR AMERICAN INDUSTRY, Lecture of the Hon. William I. Kelley, at Boston. Boston, November 22. Judge Kelley, ot Philadelphia, delivered a lecture last night, belore the Mercantile Library Association, on "The Means of Promoting the Welfare of the Laboring Classes and Developing the Power of the Nation." He assumed that the question of reconstruction was practically settled, or would soon be out of the way, and that Ame rica would enter; on her true destiny, which was the elevation of man by relieving him from the exclusive exertions of toil. This would be accomplished by the development of our material resources, and those great economies which Tngland so well understands, but whit h are inconsistent with the policy of lree trade, which Mie imposes on her commercial dependencies. Mr. Kelley then gave ao exposition of the protective theory, supportine it substantially by similar areuinente as those advanced by Henry 0. Carey aud the veteran editor of t'.ie New "York 2VifuM. He said, among other 1 bines, that it the industry of America was eu 'Mely protected from the underpaid labor of Knefand, France, and Germany, we could pay more per hour, aud require our laborers to work fewer hours than any of those nations. J lis arauments were, as he said, ultra protec tionist; halting at no half-way theories, and tillering no compromise whatever tothelree trade doctrines. .. A suggestion. M. E. Legouve Denuucque?, editor of the Journal de Jtouen, who has juBt left tbe House of Detention of Boune-Nouvelee, In that city, where he had been imprisoned for a month for an infraction of the laws on the press, Iiuq undressed a letter to the Minister of the In terior, pointing out that, although the are from seven hundred to eight hundred persona detained in that prison, there Is not a single book within ita walls. The writer expresses the opinion that this id ft want which ous,ht to be supplied, and encloses to the Minister a sum of 100 francs, with a request that the money should be devoted to tbe foundation ol a library i in the prison, THE LORD BOND ROBBERY, Hearrest of Frank Ilellen, and What Came of It -William R. Bnbcock Alio Arrested More Trace of the Stolen Bond Investigation Before ' Justice Dowllag Both the Accused Committed to Prison. The readers of the World will remember that, on the 9th Instant, Captain Jourdan. of the Sixth Precinct, and Detective Elder took into custody Frank Ilellen, a broker, doing buslnoss at No. 9 Wall street, lor having presented for collection at the United States 8ub Treasnry eight coupons detached from $5000 bonds, w hich were a portion of the $1,700,000 In bonds stolen from the sale ol Mr. RutusL. Lord, at No. 3H Exchange place, in March last. Ilellen was brought up before Justice Powllng at the Tombs Police Court, and a lengthy ex amination ensued, which resulted in the dis-' charge ot the accused, as no evidence of guilty knowledge was produced, and as he stated the coupons bad been purchased from a stranger in the ordinary course of business. After his discharge Captain Jourdan and Detectives Elder and McCord received informa tion which led tbent to at once rearrest Ilel len, who was taken Into custody on fiinuay evening. He then acknowledged that he ha t obtained the coupon and some $4:1,000 of bonds from William K. Bnbcock. Search was made for Babcock, and he was arrested on Mon dav night at No. 6t!0 Brondwav. They were locked up at the'Sixth Pn-clnt Sta tion House until yesterday afternoon, when both Ilellen and Bnbcock were arraigned before Jus tice Dowling, at the Tombs Police four, (ieue ral Stewart L.

The name" of tho parties in Federal street, a rumor of whose tuilure 1 telearaphed lost night, have been pub lished this atternoon, with the particulars ol their extensive swindling operations. Tne iirm in Barstow, Edson, & Co. From what is now known of the transactions, it appears that different parlies have been vie timv.ed to such an extent fiat the grand total will amouut to about $175,000. Some time aero, Messrs. H. E. Barstow. Kdson & Co., came to this city and made arrangements to go iuto business. The members ot the tirm repaired to the Mercantile Agency to fret their names made good, aud succeeded in getting indorsed by the Haeucy. They next obtained a considerable amount of goods, consisting of furs, jewelry, leather, a stock of boots and shoes, etc., without giving uny security for them, Irom different merchants iu this city, and also ot boot and shoe dealers in Milicrd, Lynn, and other larae manufacturing towns. They sureeeded so well that they got a very large stock on hand, and it is supposed that they then quietly shioped the goods to New V ork city, and disposed of thorn thereat auction, and then left with the proceeds of the -ales in their pockets. It has been ascertaiueJ that they have eone to Canada. On Monday aiternoon last, some oi the parties lliut had furnished the tirm with goods, having -uspicions that all was not right, visited the house ot Mr. Edson, at Brookline, in the even ii'P, by agreement, and found that he had de camped for parts unknown. Several of the per rons victimized have visited the office of Chief ! ot Police Kurtz to inquire what steps they could take in tne matter; but all bave refused to etve the amount ot their losses, and their names are kept secret. We understand that one jewelry firm bus titincd a loss ot about $2000, and that the value of the smallest amount ot goods obtained by l'arstow, Edson & Co., from any one tirm or person, was valued at $500. There is no law existing under the provisions of which these parties can be arrested and secured iu Canada, but strong efforts are being made ta ferret out r vidence by which they can be arrested either ly a criminal or civil process. Their office In boston was at No. 25 Federal street. Edson came to this city about six months ago Irom Philadelphia. He then bad an unenviable reputation. Mr. Barstow had previoiuly been engaged in the hoop-skirt Madness in this city, and had borne an excel lent edveation before he formed a partnership with Edson. Bastow being connected with tho firm, and well-known in' the city, was what 1 nabled them to get indorsed by the Mercantile Agency, and a'so to carry on the transactions which they did subsequently.
