A MODEL RETORT.
Miss Susan 15. Anthony, bcintr called upon (or
the report, hlated that sue had no written
rej ort, as the work had required all her time.
They had collected iu contributions $4714. and
had expended moie money tutn that by holding
lectures, conveutious, printing tracts, docu
ments, etc. The work was so extensive that it
was impossible to secure men and women
enough to perform it. She alluded to the etlorts
of Lucy Htone and her husband Jin Kansas, can
vassing that State to secure equal rights to all
tinder the Constitution of that state. In con
clusion, ohc hoped the work would be prose
cuted until no human bring, under any pre
tended republican form of government, should
be deprived of equal rights under that gcrveru
dent. Lucrctia Mott briefly spoke of her interest in
the cause, pleading her age as an excuse for her
lack of personal participation in the work, hue
concluded by gracelully yielding the presidency
to Mr. Purvis.

If Miss Sojourner Truth was announce as the
J next speaker, and her appearance was the signal
(V for eeneial COOd humor. Hmnunir-r tins hi.n a
slave torty years and free forty years, and is not
at all afraid ot speaking before white folks or
speakiiiff out in ir,tetini!. She dresses much as
she used lo on the plantation, aud wears a white
'kerchief around her head, a la mauma all over
the South. She spoke in a clear, loud tone,
( "Willi a strong African accent, as follows :
8PEECH OF SOJOURNER TRUTH.

l much good luck to have slavery nartiallv

destroyed. We will then feel that we are iree
indeed; that we can fill every place that is open
to all that have got their rights. I feel that if
I've pot to answer for the sins done in my body,
iust 89 much as a man has, I have a right to
iave lust as much as a man. (Laughter and

(Laughter.) Bo I appeal on 'half ot Ue women.
The white woman knows a good deal the
colored woman don't know it that is, those
that are lately 'maccipated. The colored men

are a kind of masters. They will try to be nias-

If WASHING AND IRONING.
1 I want the colored woman to understand that
if she earns anything it is her own. But if a
polored wife goes out to do a little washing
that is about as high as black lolks get (laugh
ter) when she comes back with a little money
the husband comes in. "Where have you
been 1 "To work." "vVell, yon got paid ?"
"Yes." "Then let me have it." "But I waut to
buy so aud so for the children." "Well, I don't
want words about it; so hand it over.''
(Laughter.)- So he takes it, and walks away,
nobody knows where. Then he comes in at
night. "Hot anything to eat?" ".No." "What's
the reason ?" "No money." "Well, you might
ha' got it." That's the way it is; a woman can't

does, ene Corn ui. ua inuuey iu uii pucari;
he can tret it. He can speud his'n, and be can
hold her'n She can't get what 6he wants for
her aid her children. The man claims her
money, body, ami evry thing for himself.
(Laughter and applause.)
NOW'S THE TIME.
lt' not right. Now's the time to make a
Mroug appeal for woman's rights. How beauti
ful it will be when you can see women sitting
like the lawyers and judges. You see a poor
woman coming up to oe tried by men. If you
are aomp to be tried by'mcn, why can't you
have a part in the matter and try him too ?
When the poor woman stanus before the bar
perhtips the man who looks down on her has
a nobe red like a cigar. (Laughter.) No woman
dares speak in her behalt. They ask her certain
questions for their amusement, and no women
are to speak. Mea haven't all the majesty. I
want women iu their places. (Laughter.) They
would know what to ask aud what to say,
which the men don't kuo, lor I have been
ttandiug and listening, and have i-een the poor
women go olf and the men go "he, he, he."
JURY WOMEN WANTED.
Now I wnnt women there to sit and hear not
these petitoggers. I mean these lawyers,
judges, atid jurymen. It it ain't decent for
women to be there, if ain't decent for men to be
there (laughter) you ounht'ntto be anywhere
if it isn't decent enough for women to be there.
(Applause.) This is the trouble with some of
the men. They are so mean tney don't want
the women to know it. Let nobody be ashamed
to go to the bar and give testimony. Nobody
will be daunted. You know it is a bister sits in
judgment, she will not asu you any question it
it is unworthy. (Appluuse.)
I have been here eighty years that is long
cnoi.uh lor anybody. There is a great deal ol
work to be done, so I will have to tarry. I was
foity j ears a slave and forty years free, and I
would wish to live forty years longer if I could
have equal rights for those that live. I suppose
that's the reason I stayed-to 6ght this battle
for the right: that every human being thai
have that (iod-giveu right. As I aldagool
many years ago, there is some men who be
lieve that if women got their rights men would
have no rights lelt. They seem to be half
seared. (Laughter.) They were to frightened
that some ot them turned to crying. (Laughter.)
HER tOGIC ABOUT WORK AND PAY.
Did (Jod ever have men to have women's
rk'hts? "No. No!" Men nave an mengu i,
savsl Are you afeard that women will take

It I do as much work as a man, why can't I be
paid so? i Applause.) If 1 write ana main
accounts as well as a man, why can't 1 have as
much money? They don't do more than 1, why
hould they get more pay? There is the Oeruian
women, they do as much work as a man, but
(he gets a dollar and she gets get? a half, because
elic is a womau. Mie cats as much as a man if

body must sit in judgment how much she must
eal, or how much sense you can't help that.
(Laughter.) I have seen some women that had
better sense than the men bad. (Laughter.! I
have talked with them, tiive them a chance.
That is what the men fear they fear that
women will degrade them. They ought to out
prow men for a while to bring them to their
place. (Great laughter and applause.)
A PREDICTION AND COMPLAINT.
FThis cause must move. Yes, It must. They
used lo say to me: "Sojourner, it's no ue. You
Will neber'see de freedom ob de slave." "Well,"
fays I. "let me be in de body or out ob de body,
I shall see it." When the dark davs were here I
thought I should live to see it. Did me anil you
know that It would come to pass, men would be
better aud women would be better. But men
lear to give women their rights. Even the
children are brought up lo say to the women:
"Uh, jou are only a woman; you don't know."
They talk so to their motfu-is. (Lnaehter.)
Like Adam, when fiod a-ked what he had been
doing, he laid it all to Uod and the woman.
(Laughter.) Just so, when children grow up,
they lay all the blamo to women.
SUPPLIES WANTHD FROM THE ENEMY.
We waut woman's rights, but we loolc to you
for the money. When woman's rights come, we
will have it in our own pockets. (Laui'Me-.)
Wc won't run to men lor money ; we will h.ve
it ourselves. (Applause.) The men will have
to ask us tor some money, (Laughter.) Wc
want them to give us a little now, until we get
our lights, then we won't be troubled any more
about asking lor money. Then you will have
pence; you will be joyful; you aud your wife
and daughter will stand beside you. You will
ieel like standing without being propped up.
(Applause.) Let's keep the work moving while
it is movuie, and then you won't be asked lor
money. Women will have money as well as
MISS ANTHONY'rf INEVITABLE COLLECTION.
Susan B. Anthony at tnis appropriate point
announced that the linance committee would
take up a collection and receive subscriptions.
They didn't want all small stamps either, but
would not refuse them.
Sojourner then commenced a weirl, wailing
song, with a very queer tuna, and odd though
claar pronunciation ot words, her old head
swaying lo and fro in harmony. As near as
the reporter could catch the words, the song
was as follows:
Wc are roIu" home we luul visions bright
Ol llml holy IiiikI, Unit world ui IlKlit.
Where Hie cold unci diirk nilii ol lime Is passed,
Anil the mornliiK ol eternity Is come hi Iiim;
Where the writry saints no more sli.ill rouin,

Where the light eelcsiiiil m-ins our nrowu,
And the waves ol bliss ure Uushiu' routi'

And the untheniN of sei ls ami glorious strains;
Where the sun rolls down Ins brilliant Hood,

Oh, that beautiful home;
Oh-h, thai beuulilul world.

There beauteous forms will hiiik and shine,
A -guarded well by the hand Mvitic;

Waiting before that princely band;
And the lilory ofuod, like a molten sea,
Will bathe that immortal company.
Oh-h h-h !
Oh, that beautiful home;
Oh-h, that beautiful world.
The ransomed throng they gee and bless
The boly city ot gorgeou.sness;
The verdant earth and auuels' choir,
The llowers that never winter wear;

As wafted on the aruuroslal air:
Through endless years we then shall prove
The depths ol'a baviour's mulchless love.
Oh, thai beautiful home;
Oh-h, that beuulilul world.
THE EFFECT OF TFIE FREEDMEN's BUREAU.
Mrs. Frances D. (iage, in illustration of the.
statement that even among the neero slaves ot
the South the man is the master of the woman,
told a story of a colored man who was exceed
ingly indignant because the Government hav
ing freed him, and given him land to work on,
would not hire a woman to nurse his children,
so that his wife Nancy could work In the held.
But, Bald Mrs. Gage, in an attempt to convince
this humble but intelligent freedman, the Gov
ernment cannot afford to pay eight dollars a
mouth for a woman to take care of your chil
dren. Your w'ne must be allowed to do that
herself. General Saxtou wishes to bo very kind
to you, but he refuses to allow this to be done
any more. But the colored man could not see
the justice ot this, and went away grumbling
that it was ashame that sucti a good held-haud
as Nancy should be kept at home waning her
time nursing children. The black man learns
everything from his master.
Sojourner Truth Dat j a fact !
Mrs. Gaee That's a lact, Sojourner; you
ki;owit. Mrs. Gave went oil lo say that the
colored man considered u his right to make his
wife work for him in the fields, and to prevent
her taking care of her children, as the master
had done before. Arc you going to lorce pros
titution and wrong on that people? Are you
going to make it true that the only woman who
has the right to govern her children is the
mother ot'illegitimate children? The women
there do not like to be married in the church,
lor the chinch compels obedience to the hus
baud. 1 am talkiug now lor the colored women
ot the South, lorirettiug my own degradation.
It is said women don't wnnt to vote in this
country. 1 tell you it's a libel on the woraeu of
Sojourner Truth "Hyi r, hyer!"
Man in audience "ihey ougut lo want to
ATTACK ON PHILLIPS AND BEECnER.
Mrs. Gage The women who have worked
nip lit and day in the lust war, when this great
public opiuion which had crushed them down
lilted, and said: "You will not shrink Irom
votii.g." (Applause.) Let Wendell Phillips
and Henry Ward Boecher stand on thi platform
and usk the sutlrage for woman, and leave aside
Mrs. Stanton Mr. Beecher has not made any.
Mrs. Gage Lately he has,
Mr. Purvis 1 understand Mr. Phillips to say
that woman does not want to vote, as a reason
why we should agitate this subject the more.
Mrs. tHge Let him explain it in that way,
and I will accept it. 1 don't find him saying
that in these latter years. He said it a few
years ago, but I don't hear him saying anything
about it now. 1 addressed many asdiences last
winter, and whenever I said "we must give
woman the right to vote," there waa a shout and
a clapping ol hands from the whole audience.
Two hundred years ago George Fox averted
that it was not necessarily required that a mar
riage should be legalized by the church; that
the parties themselves, acknowledging them
selves the union, and the obligation of so sacred
a union, were sufficient in the society to which
they belonged. They called together their
!ru-nils aud mutually acknowledged their uniou.
It was entirely reciprocal no assumption of
authority on the one hand, no promise of obe
dience on the other. The simr'e consent of
the parties was sulliolent, without the necessity
of minister or magistrate to give sauction.
A crany woman attempted to say something,
but the meeting was adjourned over her head.
Lucrctia Mott occupied the chair, and after
vainly endeavoring to prevail on Frances (iage,
Mrs. Hose, and others, to open tho proceedings,
finally introduced Colonel Morse, of Missouri.
Mr. Morse succinctly reviewed the popular
objections to the enfranchisement of women,
aud after speaking a few minutes yielded to
Mr. Fillsbury offered a couple ot resolutions,
The ttrst ef these expressed the idea that tho
progress of nations has not been proportionate
to the progress ot individual men. The second
declared that the Increasing conspiracies, revo
lutions and tho wars attending both the begin
ning and progress of even the most liberal and
enlightened nations, the constant and crushing
taxation ar.d every form ot oppression, arc
strong reasons for the investigation of the cau-es
of Ihese evils, and the application of the most
radical and extraordinary remedies for their
niSTORV OF Tn WORLD.
Mr. Pilisbnry commenced his lecture in tho
same manner that Irvini? docs Knii kprhni kcr's
History of New York by giving a history of
the world. He, however, seemed to be using
his hi-tory for the purpose of pointing a moral.
He then read from manuscript the passage
from fiidney Smith's works in relation to the
taxes imposed on everything in his time.
THE UNITED STATES A FAILURE.
He continued, it seventy years be the life ot
man, what should be the age of a nation. No
nation has ever reached manhood. Our own
nation is not a hundred years old, but it had
behind it the chronicles of many centuries.
e commenced w ith a Washington for Presi
dent aud a John Jay in the Supreme Court. We
closed that dispensation with James Buchanuu
instead ot Washington and Juduc Taney instead
of John Jay, with a war to open treason and
rebellion before us. We have now six thou
sand millions of dollars of debt, a Piesldent
whose weakness and wickedness finds no paral
lel, a Secretary of Slate who has become his
lull counterpart in both, with a Senate too
cowardly or too corrupt to impeach the one, or
seek the removal oi the other.
For more than two years we have been
attempting to restore the broken fragments of
our I'liiou. With the history and experience
ot lour thousand years shining back upon us,
so far wc have failed, and under any proposed
policy we shall tail. By ailtnc claims of justice
and righteousness we deserve to tail, lor we
are still behind those claims. The United Htntes,
youngest among tho nations, wetnursed bv
lorty centuries of history, and schooled by ail
the experience of the age, with half the globe
lor their inheritance, with Christianity their
faith, and republicanism their form ot govern
ment, surveyed a precocious childhood, and
then lell a victim ol their own vices. To-day
they are in tho hands of many physkians, but
ot very doubtful reputation, physicians who
seem far less desirous of curing tho patient
than of dividing and sharing the estate.
THE SEX OF TI1E DEITY.
Theodore Parker, when he prayed one morn
ing "Our leather and Uur Mother," struck the
key-note of a great idea. Women might not
vote as well as intelligent men at the first
attempt. Tho first attempt is not always a suc
cess. Flven nature, if we believe the Scottish
poet, improved in a second attempt:
"Her prentice hand she tried on mau,
And then sue made the lasses, oh !"
She might at first elect John Mornsspy, even
though Elizabeth Cad.y Stanton and lloruce
Greeley were in the field.
TUE FIRST BATTLE-FIELD.
MiHs Susan B. Anthony said the Finance Com
mittee would go through the audience to get
muds. She said that iunds were primarily to
be Used in Kansas. That State had passed
through trials, and come out of them triumph
antly, lor the right; and it is now proposed tuat
that State set the nation this grand example of
lcconstruction ou the basis' ol universal suf
nage. She asks us to help her, aud it is more
important to do that, that wo should scud the
agencies she demands,
PILLSBURY GETS A PILL.
Lucrctia Mott stated that she feared that a
diocouiaging inference would be drawn Irom the
Mews lust presented. She thought we were not
so near tho destruction of the republic as it
mignt sr em from Mr. Pillsbury's speech. She
was glad to hear him say that be had comDosed
it in a sick room. (Great lauehter.) She hoped
that some other friends would view the favor
able side of the picture. Even Nineveh re
pented, and was not destroved: and. after all.
it might be that we could muster energy and
lucor tnougn to pay on an tnese thousand mu-
!ols. (Applause.) sne introduced Mrs.
Krnestine L. Rose, with the wish that her
address would be a little more hopetulthan that
of Mr. Pillsbury.
ERNESTINE L. ROSE STEAKS.
Mrs. Rose said the fact that the ladies can be
tick as well as the gentlemen was another proof
that they were very much alike. Mr. Pillsbury
had alluded to the rise, progress, aud destruc
tion of nations; but, after all, we have to come
down to dollars and cents. (Applause.) We
live entirely in a practical age. She could
show them in a few minutes that if they had
suuicient oi me
ROOT OF ALL EVIL
in their hands, there would be no need of their
meetme. Ihev could obtain the elective hau-
cluse without making a single speech. (Ap
plause.) (ive tnem nut a million ot dollars.
ami they would have the elective franchise from
the next Legislature, (ureat laughter and ap
plause.) But, as they had not a million dollars,
thev wanted a million voices. There are ulwavs
two ways to obtain an object. If they had the
means they could have
BOUGHT THE LEGISLATURE
long ago. (Laughter.) But having uo money,
they must create public opiuion. If trienda
think they have beard speeches enough, they
must remenioer mat tnese speeches are neces
sary to create public opinion. Look at mcm-
bei s ol Longiess running ail over tne south to
address crowds of treed men. Why? Because
tliev hold the ballot. Why not ten or fifteen
years aao ? Because there w as no political end
to nc served.
She presumed that there were present, as
there always have been, some timid individuals
called chicken-hearten (laughter), who were
frightfully airuid that women would be de
Lioikd at the ballot box. There could be no
ciinger of that, lor Coueres3 would pass a
Freenman's Bureau hiil (lnuebtor) to protect
wouku at the ballot-box at the 6ame time.
There was no fear that woman would be dis
tuned. But, it was said that woman would
ipix with rude men at the ballot box. Not so
iiiy mere than at church. Should not the
Lai lot-1 ox be as sacreu as the church ? Infinite
lv more so, because we can pray in secret, but
voting must be done In public. (Applause.)
NOTLL BIBLICAL CONSTRUCTION.
They had been told this evening that it was
hot good lor man to be alone. ow, if it was
not weil lor him to r-e alone in the Garden of
Fden, it was not wdl for hiin to be alone at tho
biillot-box. (Great laughter.) What would man
have been u woman had not given him to taste
of the tree of knowledge 1 She believed the
republic was already destroyed, else there could
be no need ol reconstruction. This reconstruc
tion must be based on a sound foundation. Tho
lounuat'won must be proportionate to the super
structure, and the rea-on that our republic has
not achieved the duiation of mouarchios is that
it embraced principles of human rights iu its
superstructure which Hilen ediuits foundation.
THE HYPOCRISY OF REPUBLICAN LEADERS.
When Chase, when Sumner, when Stevens,
w hen Wilson talk to the uetiro about the im
portance of having the franchise, and stop short
of giving it to woman, I proclaim them hypo
crites. (Applause.) Ihey call themselves the
friends ol the slave, and speak to them because
tbey have got the ballot. We have not got that
right, hence tney do not say ono word about
the importance of our haviug tho elective fran
chise. do not speak ol parties. For one,
I would neer be bound to party il I had the
THE SECRET OF IT.
Perhaps our Senators know that women
would uot be such pliable material in their
hands as the newly freed staves, and hence will
not give them the ballot. We would uot be,
you may depend upon that.
