Women's Rights. Women's Rights. LETTER FROM HARRIET MARTAINAU. The following lottct from Miss. Martainau to to Mrs. Qage which wo hiivo permission to copy, will bo read with interest. Mr Dkar Madam: Your Ictltnr ling given mo great pleasure, anil I llinuk you Tor send ing me the assurance of your sympnthy, and o interesting n glimpse as you nflnrd 1110 of your position anil your life. ilon't see thnt we eon do nny filing hut good in necking tlie advancement of woman, ns long ns our great aim, felt nn, I avowed, in to further llie dis charge, of duty, t think we tuny go on bravely and stoutly, while our demands arc, not for pleasures nnd vanities, but that wo. mail may have a tetter clinnco of lienltli and strength, of senso and cheerfulness, of knowledge and self-discipline. Men will . not long be afrnid of thot which will innku thoir homes comfortuhlo, their wives rcosnn ohle, their children licnllhy and obedient, nnd their affairs orderly ami prosperous. And in your country, especially, I think tho progress may be rapid, if women ask just that which it is their plain human right to liave, means of health of body and mind. In your country, I think I have seen the wrongest examples of every sort of women. Certainly, I never saw elsewhere women so utterly insufferable as certain specimens of the wives of rich merchants in your great sea ports; the whining discontent, the wretched health, the spiteful and tenziug temper, tho tyranny over domestics, the malice towards neighbors, tho insulting behavior to hus bands these things ninde up tho most hor rible spectuelo of domeHtio life that I have ever seen in any country. On tho other liond I can nowhere look for more exquisite wive nnd mothers than some of your coun trywomen whose powers nnd whose learn ing might mtnlify them to take a place among men, in almost any intellectual rank in any country. And then, you have all gradations between tho idiot and tho sage; and espec ially, 1 may note, a large proportion of peil. nuts among your advancing women. This is unavoidable, t know. 'J'hcre was an ago of tho world, when knowledge began to bu diffused again, w hen men were pedants. 1 do not quarrel with tho fact, because it is unavoidable, and becauso it is & sign of progress: but 1 rather dread the pedants taking possession of the movement, pushing forward their own personal claims, nnd mak ing tho cause ridiculous by their conceit, and offensive by thoir self regard. 1 believe and trust there nro ninny thou and women about you who will eio lung bold your views, and say aloud, however modestly nnd quietly, that they desire tho means of health for themselves and their daughters, tho means of doing their duty better, whatever may be tho duty that lies nearest to band, the means of ascertaining fairly bow mHch they are able to do for the enlightening and training, and serving nnd aiding all who may be within reach of their influence. I!y perseverance in this claim together with steady sweetness in urging It, by a diligent use of nil means of improve nicnt as they arise, and by a conscientious dischurgo of every existing duty, the mure strenuous and patient as tho intellect lie comes stronger, I have every hope that generation or two will expcncnco a great advancement, and every body will be the happier for the progression of a part of the grout human family, w hich must ever sin and suffer, or prosper and enjoy throughout und ' not partially. Men and children stiller as much as women from tho present state things; ond 1 trust ami' believe that they will one day be taught this by the happy experience of a great amelioration. As for mo, 1 work on in a ipiiet sort of way the cause, rendering my health hardy exercise, cold water, and plain diet ; making my servants and neighbors as happy os can (which is chiefly by being uncommonly happy myself;) and trying to think and learn as diligently ns I can ; uud then saying pluinly wliut 1 think uud have learned, with out any regurd to w hat the world may say, my topics being of general interest and therefore, fit the general disposal. I am Ucur Madam, Tunly yours, H. MARTAINAU. From the New York Tribune. A World's Fair in New-York.

Art thou not lost I Slavery under Moslem Sway. is -The is in to Thero Is slavery in Turkey. Rev. D. M. Wilson, Missionary ut Beirut, Syria, has lately written for the Central Christian Her aid, a somewhat detailed account of its char acteristie features. Ihn slaves nre mostly brought trom l.gypt nml Abyssinia nro cm ployed clnelly us house servants, never in "gang," ns on our Southern plantations; usually but one or two in ench family ; nro commonly well dressed nud fed, nnd within his know ledge never worked severely or nny way maltreated. It is remni liable that slaves rnrely if ever many, or coiistituto families nre bought young, nnd us n general rule set free helore tho mhrinilies ol age come on. The idea of hereditary shivery is unknown. Of course, sinvo-hrncdihg w ith nil its dis gusting nnd wicked uccouipnniincuts, has no place there. A fact yet more remarkable is that no pre judice against color obtains in that country. " I have not," says Mr. W., " beon able discover the least trace of that hateful feeling so common in our Slave nnd especially our Free Stales. Hank is every thing Syria ; but rank has nothing to do with color. The colored man w ho is u sluve has nearly as high a seat as the hired house-servant who is white A white man does not feel degra ded because u richer black mini is preferred helore him. Mr. Calhoun another missiou nryl told mo not lung since thut ho had seen nt tlie capital n white mull holding the stir rup for n black Colonel, as a welcome part of his military duty. When Dr. Bacon was about lenving Syria, ho remarked to me that he found nothing like prejudice against color in Syria. Every Sabbath, ut the mission church in Beirut, a very bluck man may seen seated among white men, often in midst of a bench filled with well dressed while men." "No one thinks of nny thing out of taste in oil this. Moslems, us is well kuown,iuurry black women ns well ns white!" Here are facts for Americans, nnd espe cially American C'hritliani, to ponder. Hero is the religion of Moslem in contrast with American Christianity, each begetting its dis tinctive type of slavery. Why ure the bands of tho Moslem silk, and luo bands of Clnsttaii iron ' Our charity (beginning nt home) wns nbnul to suggest thut, inasmuch ns the slaves bro'l into Syria from Africu nre chiefly of the Mos lem religion, a fraternal feeling would nat urally spring up, nud the doctrines of Moslem faith would have their full scope modifying nud softening the stringent points in the sluve's condition. But we are check ed in tho outsot of this npology far Chris liun slaves in our country fare uo better, even among Christian masters, than if they were Pagans. We mcuu thut the tame general 1 laws obtain in their case, the snme ilimiliili nuthorized ties, the sumo prejudice against color, the , name degrading auction block, the snme ( ' 1 - 1 j hereditary law, the same doctrine of property in their bodies and souls both tho same every thing with which man cnit crush nnd cursn his luitow-mnn. Must we then admit thnt the system of Mahomet is humane and benevolent, above the system of Jesus Christ? We can ndmit no such thing. The system of Jesus Christ in its purity and power has not yet touched American slavery. When It does, the iron of its bauds will be ns burnt tow. With what face enn slnvehnhling and slavery-sustaining professors of Christianity compare their own slavery with that of the children of the Crescent ? Ho long as they claim to hnve the rcnl gospel and to exem plify its spirit, how can they answer it before tho bar nf even earthly men, that their own shivery is so snvngn, so terrible, while that of Mohnmmeiliins in nynn anil turkey Is to mild ? There is only one alternative. They must trnihico Christianity putting it down indefinitely below Moslemism, or they most admit thnt their Christianity is spurious nnd rotten, nnd thnt tho true system of Christ's teachings and spirit has never been brought in contact with American slavery nt nil. For our part, we shall sooner traduce our Southern Christian brethren (nominally so) thnn traduce Christ's blessed gospel. So help us, Clod! Ohcrtin Evangelist. From the Indiana True Democrat. Electioneering Democratic Speech. Electioneering Democratic Speech. WASHINGTON, CITY, July 11, 1852. Gentlemen: The whulo machinery fiir electioneering is now in full operation here. There is the Whig Executive Committee. I'hey huve their rooms and strong corps ol Clerks. Ample minis me provided, lean not state the amount.

They nre franked and directed, and then put into tho Post Olhce to go to nil parts ol the IJni ted .States. Tho w hole U a well regulated anil ellicient system. I he Democratic organization and arrange- meiit is equally perfect in its details. Suim- ble documents mid speeches nre sent iMorth, nnd those calculated to n warm cliinalu nre sent South. Splendid fortunes nre involved in the contest. If Scott be elected certain individuals will hold ollice, and thousands of others will obtain government contracts ut such rules as to enrich themselves. If Pierce be elected others will reap tha golden bar vest by gathering wealth from the hard earn ings of the peopie. This privilege of getting rich upon the spoils gathered from the people's pockets constitutes the only issno now in contest. There is no doctrine, no principle of human rights. J here is not even a question ol policy between them. Yet Free Sudors nro nsked to nid cneh in getting the spoils? Can nny man who possesses n lovo lor mankind eon sent to nid in such n work ?

Iron the Civilizer. to in in be the the in The Ago of Gold nnd the Age of Bronze have given placo to tho Ago of Iron. Iron is your true ngent of civilization. So savs Mr. Hubert Stevenson nt Itangor. In sight of the Menai nnd Conway tubular bridges, he might he instilled in proclaiming this ; though the saying might remind one of the "nothing like leather" maxims. Yet assuredly iron is n great power III tho present age. It is revo lutionizing tho world, i he iron rail and Iho iron wires of the tel 'graph havo nlrcndy brought towns so ucur to each other that country bus become ns one vast city. And iron railroads are bringing countries nearer to each other, nud nro binding them into one common interest. We even hear of an iron bond of union between England und Calcutta, n railway stretching across Europe und Asia Minor, rendering the ilistnnco in point ol time between London nud Calcutta only ono week. Nor is the proposal n mere chimera it is a thing that will bu renlizeil, nnd in our dny. Fourteen years will probably sen the Calais and Calcutta trains running. Iron will form the road, and iron locomotives the fiery horses to hear the iron carriages freight ed with their living loads, along tho great highway nf civilization. We have yet seen but the beginning of the gigantic powers railwnvs, Tho next gnnerntion mny sce.nn extension of the Calais and Calcutta line to Pukin ncrnss tho centre of Asia. 'The New York nnd California Kuilwny will then ha it "great fact," for Yu;.kecs are uo dreamers, but hard, practical, ouorgetic workers; nnd Asa Whit- ney1 sehomo w ill not long remain upon paper only. Hut iron is nlso working away in other directions. Not to speak of iron bedsteads and iron drawing room furniture, we have iron steamships, iron tubular bridges, Irou viaducts, and iron light-houses. Tha Queen has Just ordered an iron ball room, to be con structed by Hellhonse, of Manchester, for her highland country-seat nt Balmoral. Thou, huve we not seen the iron and Crystal Palace of nil nntions? There was the iron house, also built at Manchester, by Fuirburn, for the Sultan of Turkey. We shall have iron cottages and furnitures of ull kinds soon irou bouts, iron stools,nnd iron crockery. Tho uses of tha metal nre endless, and its supplies almost inexhausti ble.
