TBE INTOLERANCE OF WOMAN. FromEvrry Saturday. There is nothing that exasperates an intel ligent woman more than the asinine confi dence with which inferior men are in the habit of dogmstizing on the differences be tween the sexes, and indicating what they are pleased to call the "appropriate sphere" of woman. With the quick intnition oharao terintio of the feminine miad, she sees in stantly that these gentlemen are talking of something on which they do not deign to ex ercise what little power of thinking they pos sess; that the pompons nothings, so wisely mouthed, are not judgments to be disounsed, bnt insults to be resented. Heaven forbid that we should enter into a controversy where the lorgest grasp and the most delicate discrimination of mind have been 89 often at fault ! Still, there is one secondary question, relating to facta rather than to principles, which wo will venture to empha size. Intolerance is the curse of the world. Now men are more or less intolerant, bat they are notoriously not so intolerant as women. Without considering the question whether this difference has any root in an essential diff erence between the intelligence and con science of the two sexes, the fact, as society is now constitnted, is too evident to be de nied. Men can object to what is objectiona ble in an individual, and still preserve some good-will, or reopect, or even admi ration, for the individual considered in the totality of his character; women vividly see and intensely feel the particular defect, and are generally relentless in identifying it with the whole personality they condemn. This antithesis between the sexes is farther complicated by the fact that the moment aff ection enters inVo the matter, the women ignore the particular defect, and excel all mankind in a toleration which is unreasona ble and sometimes even stupid. The drama tists and novelists of the world are united in testifying to this peculiarity of women that they are, from the merely intellectual point of view, more cruelly unjnst than men, and from the emotional point of view more ridiculously credulous. The imperfect per son, not loved, is despised beyond all possi bilities of masculine contempt; the person loved is absolved from all the laws whioh the most tolerant and comprehensive men inexo rably insist on applying. Here is a practical method of judgiug the two sexes, according to the circumstances in which they have heretofore been placed. It is not man and woman that we presume to discuss; we are only fearful that we may make the smallest mistake in considering the subtle play of antipathies and sympathies, which mark one phase of the practical life of men and women. The injustice of women to men is some thing which we will not consider, though it might furnish endless topics for subtle dis quisitions. The intolerance we specially desire to mark is that whioh women enter tain for each other. Every man who has ap peared as the champion of "Woman's Rights" will tell you, if he is candid, that he finds his bitterest opponents in women. Those who do not sympathize with him, in his general principles, oppose him in a way to whioh men are accustomed in their controversies with other men. A certain neutral ground of season is admitted, by the most prejudiced men, as necessary to be set apart, if any sub ject is to be discussed; the prejudiced women invade the narrowest strip of ground where opposing minds can meet in fair discussion, and come into direct contact with their oppo nents, substituting the passionate assertion of their swift perceptions for argument. They seem to be incompetent, even in a matter affecting the rights of their own sex, to look at things in their relations. The men who most profoundly disbelieve in "Woman's Hights," are everywhere outdone in unreason ableness by the feminine antagonists of the doctrine. Even when women are combined in asso ciations for the purpose of asserting their "rights," they do not eucceed in being tole rant of each other as individuals. In public Mary puff's Jane, and Jane puff's Mary; in private they have as keen a perception of each other's faults and shortcomings as though they were rival belles, and are apt to be as sharp and frank in its expression. Man's inhumanity to man has made "countless i housands mourn" for many ages; but what &hall we say of woman's inhumanity to woman ? The explanation of the intolerance of women may, however, be said to arise, in a great degree, from the fact that they have formerly been excluded from the real busi ness of life. The conduct of government has heretofore been limited to men. The occu pations, mechanical, commercial, and pro fessional, by which a family is supported, Lave heretofore been confined to the mason line "head of the family." But in mingling as a force in the affairs of government and business, each man comes into collision with other men, just as intolerant as himself. lis Boon finds that he must, as citizen, wor k man, merchant, or thinker, compromise with his opponents. Men quickly learn that they have no choice between killing each other or having some toleration for each other. From this knowledge proceed most of the customs, nsages, and laws which we call civilization. The caprices of individuality are cheoked and limited by the constant collision of indivi dualities. A neutral ground of reason, of common sense, is accordingly established. All men feel that, unless they submit to the de cisions of this common sense, they must fight it out on some prescribed line forever. In the interests of peace they consent to be rea sonable and tolerant. It is plain that women have not heretofore been subjected to that austere education of facts by which men have been somewhat emancipated from the caprioes of individuali ty. If the minds of women would be en larged by giving them the right to vote, and the right to contend with men in all the en lerprues 01 industry no intelligent man would oppose their claims. The narrowne ss and folly of some of the champions of "Wo- znjan s Lights are the real obstacles to the success of their cause. Men are, as we have said, intolerant enough; but to add a new in tolerance to that under which the world now groans would give no additional impulse to the advancement of the human raoe. Sixteen thousand young trees were carried over a railroad in Nebraska in a single day. A Dubuque girl got a minister for a husband by sawing waod to raise money for the mis- ionaries. To destroy ants, the beet plan Is probably to catch the ant with a pair of tweezers, and hit him square on the head with a sledge- Hammer. An attorney observed to a brother ia cour that he thouebt whiskers very uuurofefcslonal You are right," replied his friend; "a lawyer cannot be too oareiucea. Agnes Lewis, said to be a sifter of Ida Lewi, the Grace Darling of New England, is winning laurels in California by her remarkable performances in plowing. She is only sixteen, and will be an invaluable companion to some jarmer too poor to hire help. A FIELD FOR DARWIX. A writer in the last number of the Gentle man i Magazine says there "is a field of in quiry as yet almost tmtouohed by the advo cates of the Darwinian philosophy. They have delved deeply in the quarries of the lower animals. They have worked hard at the natural history of aboriginal and primitive raoes of our own kind. Why not take a turn at the highly civilized tribes? It is sometimes hard searching for the germ of future moral and intellectual greatness among the mollusks and quadrumana, but the traces of lower types of being are numerous and distinot enough among ourselves. Let the philoso phers come and make a schedule of our vioes, our meannesses, our grovelling tastes. Let them take note of the constantly recurring tendency to run back upon the lines of our . development and to exhibit features of relationship with our ignominious parentage. We hold our heads very high to-day. We take a gene rous and dignified view of things. Our honor mav not be questioned, uur nonesty is be yond (suspicion. But how little is needed to demoralize ub! A turn of fortune; the false hood of a friend; a bout of ill-nsago; a chanoe temptation dexterously applied to our secret weakness and we betray the old taint in the blood. Let Mr. Darwin put the animals on one side for the time, and go among his fel low-creatures, lie may not find the incipient foot of the reptile under the skin whioh covers the human ribs; but he may discover, perhaps, traces of the instinct of any one of the most and the least admirable of the inferior creatures of the earth, the air, and the sea. What are the thirty or forty millions in cluded in the new census all doing to-day? Some are creeping at night into holes not very different from those whioh give shelter to the wolf and the bear. Some have abso lutely no belief in honesty or virtue. To many thousands of them a noble thought or a generous feeling is impossible and inexpli cable. But our scientific theorists should not stop at mere observation. Their most convincing results are those of experiment. Let them put ns through a few simple tests, and see what they can make of us in a gene ration or two. Let them subject us to alter nate periods of hunger and feasts of raw meat. Let them deal with ns as they do with plants and animals in the interests of discovery not to produce new varieties and higher developments for nature can not be hurried on but to reduce us back to that from which we sprung.
