There wis a general expression of

at the death of the Hon. Jo! n Baxter.
Uia lailti were forgotten, and many
were the tribute paid to his abilities

diarassioa as to his probable successor,
and pablic opinion seemed to be nni

Hon. Bedford M. Eitei of thia city.
The ArrBAL raot cordially indorses
the wisdom ot this, selection, and
earnestly Joins in urging his appoint-

character which is in perfect accord

The revolution fur the emancipation
of woman is gloriously onward, Arid
will never stop until alia achieves u'l
her rigliti. Seward's nilgher.-'Uw'1,
doctrine is dangerous, for obedience
to law is the first duty of the goad
cilUan, a bulwark for the protection
of civllintio j. In all civilized com
ram illes tiiere is an unwiitten law
which demands th speedy, remoru'lens
execution of the rapist, and the fiat
has gone forth that the seducer nnder
prom'secf marriage shall surely die.
The acquittal of Miss Norment on Fil
daylai t.and the popular indcr jemeut of
the.verdict emphasises public opinion
on this question. A few years ago the
a Mincer in this cas would bave been
a hero, and the victim a murderess

munt has been made a heroine by the
public. Her triumphant acquittal
shows that woman is proudly emerg
ing from the degradation of the dark

Cihingi of female intellect. Men are
, niver punished for lynching the rapist,
' sad fur the future women will not be
pt'inlubed for murdering villains who
' adduced them under the promise of
marriage. The cauce of woman's
rights everywhere is upward and
onward. They are rapidly
coming . to - the front. Vain and
eelf-conceited men are reluct
antly conceding the rights ot wo
men, but still deny their intellectual
equa'ity. This clats of men graciously
condescend to give women the inalien
able rights which have been withheld
from them for centuries; but they
still insist that "man is ai much the
superior fo woman intellectually as he
is physically in sirs and strength."
Sin and strength are not the standards
by which to judge Intellect. The male
peafowl strutting ia its beautiful plum
age is no wiser than tha unpretending
female at hfs aide. Tba huge male
ahanghai, bediseaed with variegated
feathers, is no wiser than the bantam
fema'e. Kale auimala and birds of
very species are larger, more arro
gant, stately and pretentious than the
females, but they are no wiser.
Nor is man intellectually su
perior to woman. There was reason
to believe that man was woman's su
perior when aha was treated as a slave
flogged as a slave if aba dared to lift
herself ont of the degradation in which
she was placed by man's tyranny and
superior physical strength. But of

changes ot the weather on land and
from dangerous gales on the lakes and

storms will lie over the Mississippi
basin, about April 25th or '-Mth. West

Wabhinoton, April 3. The Ways
snd Means Committee to-day took up
the Hewitt customs bill, as agreed
upon at yesterday's meeting, and
added to it the free list of the Morri
son bill so far as it applies to lumber,
fish, salt, flax and hemp. Wool was
also added to the free list. Under the
head of dutiable goods, the chemical
and cotton schedules of the Morrison
bill were added, with amendments re
lating to fine qualities of cotton goods,
and the sugar duties were reduced 10
per cent.
Democratic members of the Ways
and Means Committee express the
opinion, based upon the departmental
estimates, that the new bill will effect
a reduction of between $22,000,000 and
