"I'm so sorry for them; and so anxious to do something to prove my sympathy. It will be a terrible down tall to those girls to be compelled to leave tbelr city home just as they are budding into womanhood." "It 'em begin at the bedrock as we did, wife. It won't hurt 'era. There's nothing like a little wholesome adven ity to teaeh 'em where they belong," aaM Captain Emerson, and the sequel proved that he was right. Bat the improvement in the business faculties of Grace was not only marked, but wonderful. Had it not been for propriety's rake, she could not have been induced to decide that her (hi me and her sister's should remain segwrate. Each bad fallen heir to more real es tate than either would ever need, and both, bad their parents but trusted tbem when girls, as they were new compelled to trust tbem as wife aud widow when women, they would doubt less have been spared the fate for which their idle fancy was alone responsible. But, while Grace grew in every fern ioine accomplishment, Lillian, as the years rolled on, and she became- the mother of many children, deteriorated at a painfully accelerated rate. Essie, the adopted child of Greer, was a sort of vara emit; one of those ex quisite prod nets of lower eotulitious which the student of nature ean find in every aUge of animate growth, whether his search be In the dunghill or hovel. The business tact of the child's feeler mother was not more wonderful than her love for the little waif who knew no other mother than herself. noe wore oo, aou ttie child was five years old.

But the sequel had long since proveJ his expectation vain. The wickedness of bis son had indeed some to naught, while everything the daaghter-ih-law hail touched hail liter ally turned to gold.

"Mamma," she lisped, in a beautiful baby voice, accompanied by that inher ited sinister smile wblch Uraee could never behold without an inward shud der, "I saw a boy to-day, who called me naughty names. He said I was some thing wicked. I really can't tell what it meant, but be said I was nobody's child, and my mamma was a oracy fool." "You mustu't play with naughty children, dear, and then you won't hear such dreadful stories." "But, mamma, are you not my very owa. isamina ? And am I not your own little Essie?" "Yes, dear." "But I don't mean just that. Have I got any other mamma?" "My darling, that is a very strange question. Did I ever treat you so badly " i-r cnfTsrlrg'tOtheT that you bad reason to fanoy that T was not your mamma?" "But Have I got any other mamma ?" "Ymi have two grandmammas, dear." "But I mtimUHCU, iHtt grandmam mas." "What wickedness abounds in the world," sighed Grace. "Why should saeli fancies be instilled in this young chilli's ml ml even while she is yet a baby ? Truly tbe sins of the pareutsare always visited upon the eblldren In oeme way." Then aloud, "Walt till you are older, little one, and I will tell you all about it." "Then the bad boy talked true, did he?" aatH the slender shoulders of the nervous child sfarugKed painfully. "Nay, darling; don't Imagine such a roelleh thing." "Jlut It's a faet, Isn't it V The unmerciful quizzing of children In their eager search for understanding excite the admiration of the wise, the wonder of the ignorant, and the appre hension of those who love them no dearly they would fain conceal from their sensitive spirits every sensation that would give them psiu. It is a mercy to the little ones that their at tention is so easily diverted from thing? which they are not old enough to he troubled with, and attracted to some thing equally instructive and thor oughly delightful to think and talk about. "Look, darling," said Grace, minting In the direction of the milk-white clouds that floated between the a sure blue of the arching heavens and the swaying, slender aud newly-robed branches of the gracefully-drooping willows that stood like sentinels upon the dsRodll and crocus bordered lawn. Instantly the child was iu a transport of delight. I see the angels flying ou the clouds aud they're fanning God with their lit- Ll wines.

The well-known horse and equally familiar phaeton which she had often had cause to remember as the property of John Anders ami her sister Lillian, and which, like their owners, was now badly the.woree for the wear ami tear of life, came clattering up to the orchard gateway, and Grace bounded down the lawn to admit them with Lillian and the little ones. "I'm glad to see you," said Grace, ra diant with joy. But Instantly her eounteoauee changed, and her voice grew strange and startling. "Whatever Is the matter, sister uiiue ? For heaven's sake do tell me why you look co ill? Has any thine happened?" 'Nothing unusual; don't he fright ened Grace. I'll be all right when I get rested. It's only the heat," said Lillian, in reply. But Grace felt that something more than the balmy warmth of that bright afternoon had created that purple bee tle in ber sister's cheek". In a little while the four babies were safely unloaded from the phaeton, and tile two who were old enough to run alone were romping through the halls and parlors with Esale, and the lesser ones, including a babe of four or five month, were eoosigned to Grace's well trained servant. Lillian was then let! to Grace's chamber, and disposed In at titude of eaie upon the wide, white bed.

I sup pose it was my fate to marry him, though my fancy lei my heart In an other Uireetion." "If I had enly known," signed Graee, bending low to kit herslMer; "If I had oaiy Known." "Then the fact was that yoN fancied John?" "Xo. sister. I cannot think I could have married another If I had fBDil ' him." i 'Then you are wiser than I. nar,..i i when too late the humiliating faet that John did not fancy me." "Has he not been true to you, Lil lion?" The wife looked meaning smile. up with a strange, "According to his Idea he Is true to me. Decidedly too true for my owu good, iu faet. Five years married aud four babies. What do you think of that?" "I think It's beastly!" was the spir ited answer. "Plenty of liable. If tlielr coming kill their mother.

"Slater, how oau yon talk like that? l am amaaeu to near you uuer sueli u threat." "It's all very easy for you to sit in judgment upon a cnio that you know nothing about, my sister, but to be yourself the vletim of that judgment is quite another matter. Look at these worn hands ami my wrinkling brow and fading cheeks and falling hair. I haven't a decent tooth in my head, either. Then look In your mirror and mark the contrast. And yet, the world pities you, and fancies that I have an easy life of It. Ouly yesterday a neigh bor remarked In my hearing that he was so sorry for the widow Snnwden. It was a wonder that the murder of her husband had not dethroned her reason. At the same time I was undergoing mental and bodily torture added to physical toll that you could not endure for an hour without doing something desperate." "But, look at your reward iu the fu ture, dear Lillian. Think of your chil dren. In a few years they will be grown to man and womanhood. Then, imagine how proud of them you will be." "But I shall never live to see that day, Graee." "How do you know you won't?" "Because I'm dying already." "Dying" "Yes." "How ?" "By inches." "Your looks expretrS as mush, sister, and yet I 1 nj i,d pray that It may pro. lo l.e only a aiiiig fancy." "It is not fancy; it is fate." "Don't talk about dying, ulster. Tell me ail about your life, aud why you are unhappy. Maybe I can be your physi cian." Lillian again dosed her eyes and lay far a time busily thinking. Then site spoke: "As I said a while ago, I married John utMler n mental protest. As you know, we went to live with his amia ble, apple-faced mother. She was neat and exacting and obligiug ami prim, and made a splendid home for John and his meek-mannered and excellent old father. But when I weut Into the fam ily, though I tried and we all tried to make the best of it, somehow we couldn't assimilate. John put me oil" for a year or (wo, in spite of his prom ises about building us a separate estab lishment. He mean't well; I know he did; but he very naturally bolleved that his parent, more especially his mother, could not err. He has, many a time, as fairly agreed with me upon a propo sition to build a house or make other Improvements ntt any man could hon orably agree to anything with a fellow man; and then, when my hope had risen, he would, after a private talk with his mother, utterly ignore his con tract with me. I endured everything with outward patience for a long time, and then I got furious. There's no ue in my rehearsing all I said or did, even If I eould do it. But I assure you I was a vixen when I got fairly fdnrted. John was patient with me, and lili parents consented for oar home to be built; but they never esteemed- me afterward as they would If. I had not been goaded to desperation in vainly attempting to as similate with them. Oil and water won't mix. It Isn't possible. And new, my sl-ter, I have come home to you to die. John would never agree to sign a deed to any portion of my thou sand unused acres, nor would bis par ents ever permit him to improve them. So I have tolled at the churn-dash and over the wash-board and cooking-stove to pay the taxe?, and I've prayed a thou sand times that the whole thousand acres would sink some day into a thousand-fathomed lake." The conversation was suddeuly inter rupted by a shadow in the doorway. Grace turned and gazed, her blood fairly freezing with horror. Before her stood a oheaply-clad, wild-eyed girl of about twenty, her thick hair straying iu dishevelled masses over her head. The eyes of the two women met for the first time save in dream; and while Mrs. Alouzo Suowdeti junior oflered a silent prayer to God for help, the woman who ought in justice to her child to have borne the title, laughed a loud, grating, guttural laugh, suggest ive of Pandemonium.

IO THE EIHVOBOF THE NEW NoKTIIWEKT: Never beforo In the history of this city has the mercuriol New Yorker caught a contagion so quick as in the present contest at Gilmore's Gardeu to decide the long-distance championship of the woild. The rush on Monday morniug was so great that the police gave orders to slop theselllugof tickets. This act so Infuriated the crowd that they surged against the frame-work at the entrance, breaklngdnwn the partition. Inspector Williams, he that never hesitates, hast ily gathered together a dozen of his blue-coats, aud reached tho scene in time to tap the head of the leader. An imlisciiminate clubbing here took' place. The old advice, "Hit whereveryou 9eea head," was faithfully carried out, and many received punishment who were not entitled to It. Yet on occasions of that kind policemen can hardly be ex pected to stop and listen to the griev ances, complaints or stories of the mul titude; besides, they would disobey orders if they allowed the club to re main idle. In the spring of 1S7S, Sir John D. Astley Bart., M. P., o great lover of athletic sports, and a fair pedes trian himself, conceived the idea of in augurating a pedestrian tournumont of six days' duration, wherein the compet itors could go as they pleased, the man getting over or covering the most miles in that time to be acknowledged as the best performer hi tho yorId. The idea was acted upon at once, and invi tations sent throughout the world to all prominent pedestrians. As a resulti twenty men sent In their names ascom iwtltors, and subscribed to the rules and conditions, which wore: Sweepstakes of ten sovereigns each, for all comers; each coni etltor to make, by ruuulug or walking, the best of his way on foot (without asslstuuce) for six days aud six nights, i. c, to start at ouo o'clock A. ., on Monday, March IS, 1S7S, and finish at half (ast ten o'clock r. m., March S3. The man accomplishing the greatest distance iu the specified time to be the champion pedestrian of the n orld, and to have intrusted to his keeping a belt, value 100, and to receive 500; second, 100; third 60; aud any com petitor covering a distance of four hund red miles to receive back his stake with an additional 10. Any competitor (other than the first three men) cover- ering more than five hundred miles to have au additional 5 for every three miles over the five hundred miles, such amount not to exceed 40. The surplus receipts (if any) over expenses to be either divided between the competitors who have covered more than four hund red and sixty miles iu the same propor tion as the prizes, or awarded In further prizes to encourage pedestrianism. Two tracks were laid down one for Kuglleh men and one for foreigners the former measutiog seven laps to the mile and the latter eight laps to the mile. The contest took place at Agricultural Hall, London, and O'Leary carried the belt over the Atlantic. Two attempts have since been made by various pedestrian pretention) to wrest the belt from its owner, in both of which O'leary came out victorious, and Sir John Astley, the creator of the belt, saw a posslblecbance of its deceae, and hardly liking the farces that had been enacted over its head, determined to at least give his belt an ordinary chance to pave its life. With tills viow, he no doubt looked around to see who was the man to send across the pond to take Daniol O'Leary into camp. After much forethought, William Bowell was called out of the long line of pedestrians as the most re liable mati, and one who could bring back to England's shore the belt that encircles the Hiberno-Amorlcau. Asa result of this determination, the present race at Gilmoro Garden grew out of it, and from what I have seen to-day the Englishman will beyond doubt return to England In possession of the belt and no less thuu $30,000 gate money. Some scientific tests, which have been in progress several mouths by one of the most distinguished professors of ag ricultural chemistry In the country, have developed the rather startling fact that the sprouting qualities of lastyear'a erop of No. 2 spring wheat have been seriously damaged, owing to the ex cestlve heat which prevailed just before the hnivesl-titne last year In various parts of the West, notably in Minne sola, in consequence of which a large quantity of the wheat product was ut terly ruined by blight. The fact is of Incalcuable Importance to farmers in the West. No. 2 spriug Is a grade gen erolly used for sowing purposes, and It is feared, unless the farmers are promptly informed of this timely discovery as to the deterioaliou of last year's product, and make ample allowance for it In thelrarrangementforsowiug this spring, that tho next crop will not equal fifty per cent, of the usual product per acre. It Is stated that tho damage to the sprouting capacity of the kernel is not such as to aflect its value for milling purposes. Outwardly and to all appear ances the kcrnal Is plump aud unim paired, but it Is the structural interior growth whicli is affected. The dis covery of these Tacts Is timely, indeed, and If promptly promulgated may avert very disastrous consequences, such as would surely follow upon the general use of damaged wheat for sowlug pur poses. Atthesameilme, the fact Is one of great Importance to all who arc in terested in the course of prices for wheat. The sale of the library of the late George Brlnley, of Hartford, which has bean going on for several day9, has been largely attended. The library of Con gress, the Philadelphia Historical So ciety, the Chicago Public Library, the Carter Brown Library of Providence, and other well-known public and pri vate, libraries were represented. The bidding was a little slow, but the prices brought are considered by buyers at any rate as very fair, although in many in stances they did not reach the prices paid for the books by Briuley. One thousand six hundred dollars was paid for two little books named "The Verle Two Eyes of New England Historic," in two volume-, printed iu London I6tt and 1605. Eighteen hundred dollars was paid for "Smith's General History." Since the society for tho prevention of crime closed five disorderly houses in Captain Williams' precinct, it has received numberless entreaties from citizens that it will go on and clear the precinct. There is a startling number of bad places doing business in this city, although but few are ever raided by the police. Those suspended are said to be confined to houses that don't give enough money to corrupt the police. August. New York, March 15, 1S70. OUR WASHINGTON LETTEB. To the Kditor or the New North west: The forty-sixth Congres Is now as sembled iu extra session. It was a pretty close shave with our Democratic friends In organizing the House of Rep resentatives, but they pulled through by the skin of their teeth, as it were, ami Sam Itandall once more wields the gavel and controls the deliberations of the popular branch of Congress a po sition seeond only to that of President of the United States. The opposition to Kandall in the ranks of his party was very pronounced, and at one time seemed likely to be sufficient to defeat him iu the caucus, but his superior skill at political wire-pulling, with a com bination of favorable circumstances, saved his baeon. It may be claimed as a Tllden victory, or a hard mnuuy vic tory; but, in my opinion, it is neither. Theotily real issues that entered into the contest among the Democrats were Itundall aud anti-Itandall, and the ques tion whether the jtarty deemed It ex pedient to place an ex-Confederate in tlie chair. The question was settled by the ex-Confederates themselves mostly voting in favor of a Northern man. The proceedings In organizing were tame enough, ami hardly repaid the crowds who filled the galleries aud cor ridors almost to sullbcatiou. It was one o'clock when the election of Speaker was proceeded with. Mr. Clymer nom inated Samuel J. Randall: Mr. Frve nominated Hon. James A. Garfield, aud Bev. Gilbert DeLaMatyr nominated Hon. Hendrick B. Wright, of Pennsyl vania. When the name of Bradley Bur low, of Vermont, was called, be voted for Judge Kelly, of Pennsylvania. When Blaekburu announced his vote for Mr. Itandall, it wi met with ap plause on tlie Republican side and In the galleries. Judge Kelley voted for Hendrick B. Wright, which created something of a sensation. Neither U uidall, Garfield or Wright voted. Itan dall received one hundred and forty three votes, Garfield, one hundred and twenty-five, Kelly one, Hendrick It. Wright thirteen, showing that two hundred and eighty-two members voted. Just before tlie vute was an nounced, Mr. O'Uellly, of New York, arrived and voted for Mr. Randall, thus giving him one hundred and forty-four voles, which Is a majority of all votes of the members elect. Mr. Randall was declared elected, and at half past one o clock was conducted to the chair by General Garfield and Representative Blackburn. As the three advanced up the main aisle there was prolonged ap plause. Judge Kelly being the oldest member in continuous service, admin istered the oath to the new Speaker. Among the new faces which attracted the most attention were those of ex-Secretary Robeson, who occupied a seat In the last row on the Republican side; Geueral Joe Johnson, of Virginia, who sat at the left of the main aisle, and Godlove S. Orlh, of Indiana. Mr. Black burn's desk was literally covered with flowers. Om conspicuous floral present was a magnificent basket with his in itials Iu the center, made of violets, There was also a grand pyramid of flowers ou Speaker-elect Itaudall'sdesk, The Senate proceedings were dry and uninteresting, though witnessed by a large crowd. Tho reorganization of the committees was about all that was done. The post olllcu department has ruled that a paper started recently by a firm, with the intention of advertising its business precisely as any other firm ad vertises Its business In its own long es tablished journal, cannot be admitted to the malls at pound rates, though the older paper may bo. By this decision the department says the act, If nf long continuance, suffices to remove the bar which it will impose upon the beginner, because the original, as well as the pres ent, intention is swallowed up by the act, it being a pecuniary success. The now enterprise, iu not having reached the point of the true profit, like certain papers aud magazines published by the large firms of New York, In which are e.xteusively advertised their owu busl- ness matters, has no right to the mails excepting by paying transient rates of postage. This may be law, but It is unjust and unequal, and so much In favor of metropolitan organs, that we wouder why it is so, unless the post office department is run in the interest of papers that are making money, and deliberately intends to discourage tlie starting of other periodicals by those nf limited capital. Dom Pkiiko. Washington, D. C, March 15, 1S79. How to be Beautiful. The first requisite in a woman toward pleasing others is that sue sttouHI . . ..... . . i pleased with herself. In no otlferi can she obtain thaLei her at liberty fire You ull know this by the satisfaction you feel when tastily dressed and your costume hi order. To believe that you are beautiful will go a great way toward making you so. Still, one need not be too seir-coneciotia, Tor that would make the prettiest woman homely. The most beautiful faces are those wherein the inner life shines out and radiates them, like the sunlight streaming through a rose-colored window. Keen your souls and hearts pure, your bodies ueaiiny, ami you win never look homely to any one. One advantage you will have over your prettier sister is that you win grow in neauiy as years go by, while hers will fade with her youth. A pretty woman, knowing she is pretty, will seldom do anything to retain her beauty till It is irrevocably lost; then, instead of commencing at the founda tion of beauty, she covers her skin with cosmetics and powders, slopping up tlie oreaiuir.g places oi ner uouy, until at ininy sue is an oiu woman initead or beiug at the prime of youth. Moat au thorities claim that a woman is at tlie height of her power at twenty-six, aud afler that age grows- old very rapidly. She does unless she uses her mind and intellect and lets them keep pace with her years; then the power and intelli gence will manifest itself in her face and makes her almost handsome, bow ever homely her features may be. What If they are not regular? If she has a clear skin, good teeth, bright eyes, lux uriant growth or tialr, happy, good- natured face, who asks whether she is twenty or thirty? It's a woman's busi ness to look a." well as possible, use her artistic eye, not in the use of paints, but in ttie choice ami harmony or colors. A well-fitting calico is better, neater, more stylish than are ill-made silks of unhar- moniouscolors. All people, of whatever ex or race, worship beauty, thouuli each have different ideas of it. Women of genius are tlie first to lay the crown on the head of beauty. It is not tlie mere fashion of face or form, pink or white complexion, but for the symme try and brightness that comes of physi cal ami spiritual refinement. Men of the world understand well that a woman's uit i-. finest and her iieart yields the richest wealth after the crude inexperience of girlhood is vanished. No woman has a right to sigh over ber years (though it is hard for us to know we are crowing old) until the frost ureeos into her heart. They are young while they seem young, and a sweet girl of seventeen and a high-bred woman of thirty may well dirpute the palm. Tlie essence of beauty is health, and no woman can be iieilecl in her beauty without it. Detroit Free Pres. Heredity. Tlie following Is a sketch nf Mrs. Stanton's conver-mtinu given recently at the Sherman House, reported by the laler-Ocean: "She said the law of in heritance hhould exclude many from entering the marriage relation. In se lection of men for soldiers, or in train ing them fur athletic siMtrts, the great est earo was exer?ied. Not so in choos ing tbem to be fathers of families. The object of erossing wag an important one in marriage. There is a law or vital as well - of nliemieal affinity which should be observed. Superior iareuti often have inferior children, simply be cause they do not observe this law; and tlie reverse Ii aluo true that inferior parents, by l.einit pr.iperly crowed iu marriage, will have superior children. The third point in the lecture was the consi if-ralinii of lUe transniiwion of ac quired p-uliiritien from rarens to children A child Hill have good or bad qualities Urge' deie'oped itccordiog as these were ilie ruling pa tons or the parents at Inception. Tlie next (mint dwelt upon was the iufluence of the mother's temperament upon the pre natal period upon the child. So power ful is this that it could be truly said that the child whs partially educated before birth. A mother can voluntarily stamp upqti her nflspring future greatness. Hence a woman during this period should be guarded and nurtured with the tenderest care for tbe child's sake. Tiik Cold Siioui.dek It may be doubted whether auv human beimr has overlived to tlie age of thirty without experiencing tile com shoulder In some form or other. Who does not know what it is, when casually falling in with a couple of friends, to see them smile significantly at eacli other, and then accord him a older gretting than tie expecien . or, wuo uas not neHru a knot of his acquaintances chuckle wttt Ill-concealed mirth when be left them ? If any one has escaped such a fate, has he never found the conversation of a friend cold and abrupt when he had hoped it would be sympathetic and familiar? Is there a man so lucky that he has never been made to feel that he was hi the way when maklinia call? llave not most ot us occasionally found that our most interesting communica tinus have been responded to by a va cant "Beally," while our best stories have failed to provoke a smile? Do no friends who once signed themselves "Yours very affectionately," now con clude their letters with a chilling "Yours truly?" Have none of the old nick names and familiar expressions been dropped, and are all the standing invi tations to luncheon still hi force?

Supported on either side by Juilite bhellttbarger aud Hon. Jeremiah Wil son, and flanked by her admirers out side of the legal profession, sat Mrs. Belva A. Lock wood within tbe saered precincts of the bar or the Supreme Court of the United Slates from higli noon Monday until after 4 o'clock, wait ing, not for a verdict, but for an oppor tunity to present herself, under the new law, for admission to tlie bar. She wan dressed neatly hi a nlaln black velvet dress, with satin vest aud blue cloth coat, cut a Chomme, aud witti gold but- lions. A neat tulle ruffle round neek ami cutis, black kid gloves, oowuwmev on the right lappelof nie coat, the well- Rnovvji.gold thimble, with the addition of asnnlature pair of Mlbr ia coJJ, at nr? u mat Muptawr trie scept the bead, - which was uncovered, the hair being rolled back from the face, and fastened in a knot by a comb at the back. The court-room was unusually full of casual visitors, be side those who had come to see Belva through. Mrs. Briges ("Olivia") occu pied a seat behind Sirs. Lockwood, aud of course outside tbe rail. Dr. Mary Walker, resplendent in a new suit of broadcloth, made strictly on male prin ciples, a stand-up collar and bright blue necktie, sat in tbe same vicinage, mak ing copious notes in a demonstrative manner in a large-sized port-folio. Sis ter Wilcox and Mrs. Duudore were also there. Shortly before the reai liner of opinions was finished, Senator McDon ald entered the room, and after a brief congratulation of Mrs. Lockwood, ad vanced and held a whispered talk with Mr. Justice Harlan. To Mr. MeDouakl, Mrs. Lockwood believes she largely owes the success of her "bill of rights." At last the almost endless grind of decis ions wasover. A number of the sterner sex were first presented to the court and admitted to practice. Theu Mr. A. G. Riddle, the prosecuting attorney for tbe district, who had been sitting by Mrs. LocKwood tor half an hour, arose, and accompanied by Mrs. Lockwood, ad vanced to tlie inner rail of the bar. Here he paused to allow her to enter first, but she waved him on and they took their stand immediately In front of the chief justice. Tbe success of the application bad been tbe theme of dis cussion alt day among the lawyers and others In the court-room, aud as Mrs. Lockwood walked toward tbe eight grave and reverend seigniors who held ail herhopes iu their hands, there was a bating of breath and craning of necks, especially among the outsiders. Mr. Riddle, speaking iu a clear voiee, said: I move to admit to the bar of this court Mrs. Belva A. Lockwood, a mem ber ot toe bur or tlie hupreme Court or the district, in good standing and hav ing an extensive practice in all its branches. I desire to state that I am well acquainted with tho lady, and know her to be in every way worthy to practice here." He coutintied In some further remarks eulogistic of his pro lege, referring to the law under which he made the application. Chief Justice Waiteasked, with a smile, whether Mr. Riddle would vouch for her character and rer-pectability. On being assured that lie would, the Court directed Mrs. Lock wood to step to theolerk's desk and take the oath. With a graceful bow, iu acknowledgment, she proceeded to do so, but found her brethren of the bar who had preceded her In their applica- catlous already fiere. Tlie oath does not dtller rrom that in use iu the dis trict court. After signing, she was the subject of quite a demonstration, caus ing a rap for onler from the marshal, Hon. Geo. W. Julian, ex-Attorney-Gen eral Williams aud others pressing for ward to congratulate her on her victory. Mrs. Lockwood was admitted to the bar of the Supreme CoiTt of the district on September 24, 1S73, a graduate of the National Lniversity Law School, of this city. Her first application to the I idled States Supreme Court was made three years ago, and refused on the ground that a fair interpretation of tho rules of the court admitted only men, and unless the custom became more ex tended in the States, or speelal legisla tion iook piace on me suoject, It eould not be done. Eight Stales now ad mit women lawyers to their courts. Miss Laviuia Goodell, of Jaoesville, Wis., lias been carrying on a similar but not so successful u war in tbe Supreme Court of that State- She ba obtained tbe necessary legislation, but btsitates to repeal the application. In- reply to a letter for ad vice. M rs. Lock wood told her to make the trial at once. and if successful or not, she would in troduce her to the Lnited Stales Su preme Court. Washington 1'btt. The conductors of the H'owum' Jour. nal send to the Tribune some respoiisl- oib testimony in regard to the voting or women in Wyoming Territory. The Rev. Dr. Crary, a Presiding Elder of the Methodist Episcopal Cltureh, oon tradirts the statement that at tbe recent election in the Territory "no women voted except those of the baser sort." He avers that the very best ladles of that Territory vote, and, as they gener ally vote ou the right side of all ques tions, tlie lies told to their detriment originate with men of the "baser sort;" with defeated demagogues and disap pointed strikers of the meanest kind of politicians, who hate the majority of the women because of tbelr pure lives and indeiiendent ballots. Mrs. Matilda Hindman, for whom Lucy Stone vouehen aR a woman of undoubted ver acity, drawH some charming sketches or the election scenes. Although large numbers of men stood around the polling-place, not a single loud word was to tie heard. There was no smok ing, and no spitting on the walk, over iiil-u iue i allies nan to pass. The habies, too, were well taken oare'of by lady friends while tbe mothers went to tlie polls. Not infrequently their sweet little faces were seen in close proximity to the voting-place. The mothers trundling the little carriage, with baby snugly nestling Inside, would deposit their votes as though it was the most natural thing in the world. Nodrunk eu mon Were there. There was no crowding, pushing and jamming, suolt as may be seen and experienced by women at tbe theaters, operas, lectures aud even at church when a distin guished divine is to preach. A copy of the same testimony, given by the iion. John W. Kingman before tbe Massa chusetts legislature, gives a favorable account of "six years' practical work ings of Woman Suffrage In Wyeming." Iu view of this formidable array of evidence, it must be conceded that tbe phrase "baser sort" was used tori hastily.
