Tbk Girls' Reform S> nfKit.?At a meeting
of the trustees of the Girls' Ueform School last
evening, in the roomsof the Youug Men's Chris
tian Association, the president, Mrs. Sara -I.
Spencer, is her remarks, stated that the mo-t
appalling cases of exposure, suffering and
neglect came before her so often that she was
bewildered and oppressed with the extent or
the woik to be done. The majority ot tin-girls
who were sent to her for help in the'r dlrrst e\
tremlty were very young and very Ignorant.
The cases were ;? numerous, and their need so
pressing, that she had been greattv hindered In
carrying out the instructions of the board given
at their last meeting. She had secured the
printing of .V*l copies of the petition asking for
the establishment of the institution and the bill ;
incorporating it. At her rsquest Messrs. Lin- I
coin and Weber, architects, of Baltimore, had
inspected the Ivy Hill property, and ascertained
that i would be necessary to cut down the hill
at least twelve feet in order to erect upon it
suitable buildings. This expense would not be
less than which sum would purchase a
building site li]ion level Jand in quite as desira
ble a position. It was ascertained u|>on inquiry
that thirteen acies of level land adjoining Ivy
Hall could be purchased if desired. The board
instructed the president to make immediate ap
plication to Congress for aid in this much
needed work, and all the members of the board
pledged themselves to aid to the utmost of their
ability in securing, at the earliest possible day.
favorable action in behalf of these outcast
women and children.

appreciation of them by warm applause. Mr.
Seville's acting in -Bob Sackett" can hardly
be improved on, and in"Kffie" Mrs. Saville ha
a character just suited to her stage manner.

The prisoner paused for several minutes and
replied, "I have nothing to say, your honor.
( Another pause.) I had not (frank anything
for eight months, for I belonged to the Sons ot
?lonadab, but I was overcome anil got to drink

that night."
THE SRNTBNCB.
Judge Cartter proceeded to pass sentencs as
. follows:
?'I am goingjto treat you upon the broad poli
cy that when you are sober you are an honest
man. and regardful of the life and rights ot
others. The unfortunate result of the sacrifice
of this life was a victim to your insanity under
liquor, Not insanity in the technical sense of
the term, but crazy violence that maddening
indulgence had superinduced. 1 am going to
treat it in that light, and inflict a sentence upon
yon more In reference to your own good than
anvother consideration, Your own good and
the safety of the public arc the sole considera
tions of the sentence that I shall inflict. 1 shall
give you a sentence that will give you an op
portunity, in the absence or any excitement of
the kind, to carry into the reflection of your life
a system tor its regulation, and that will enable
you to fix jour industries in an employment
that will aid you in going through life hcre
i after.
One of your troubles Is that by accident yon
have been raised to no permanent business; no
fixed industry. Your mother has told me that
with your years of capacity came on the war,
and you went into the army, when you ought
to have been in some good employment, be
coming familiar with the aptitudes and employ
ments ot an industrious and prosperous life. 1
take tbat all into account,and shall Incorp,irate
It into my views of the sentence 1 am going to
l ass upon you. Icr this sentence, 1 repeat, lias
more to do with your good and the public safety
than an \ other consideration. You are a voting
man. with all the prospects of a yet useful life
before you. and I am not going to disable you
from reaching them.
1 believe this life was taken in awild.semi
ipstnitv, superinduced by drink; and while in
toxication is no excuse, while it has been held
in the history of crime to be an aggravation of
the offense, vet the law, under the delirium
produced by it, has had regard to that circum
stance. And it is tbat view that has induced
the public prosecutor and the court in this
ca.-e to acquiesce in the course assumnl by your
counsel to hold you only responsible for the
lesser offense. You cannot bring this victim to
lite again. You would do it, I have no doubt,
if you could. His death will follow ycu as a
shadow through your life if you killed him ma
liciously. This will be your greatest suffering.
If it was accidental, fevered, delirious work of
jours, why, you Know it.
The sentence of the court will give you an
opportunity to divorce yourself entirely from
any of the Influences that the habit of drinking
mav have Imposed upon vou, and give you a
further opportunity of disciplining your habits
to industry. 1 am riot going to impose the high
est penalty of the law. I do not think it would
be of anv advantage to you or to the public. I
do not want to take out of your life the period
tbat the law might do, for I want to try a part
of that in yonr development hereafter.
Your sentence will be to hard labor in the
Albany penitentiary for the term or four years;
and upon your own conduct will depend the
wisdom or the tolly of the sentence.
The prisoner was allowed a short Interview
with hie friends, ami wa- then taken back to
jail, on the way expressing l is thanks that the
suspense was over, and he bad not received a
longer sentence.
