McGREGOR, MAY 25, 1870.
In canyass made of the 32 women in Royaltown, Vt., 14 women wish female suffrage, f»4 don't wi«h it, and 14 didn't have any choice. •Several ladies of our city are in favor of the voting business. We are not al lowed to mention names, but the reason they give us for demanding the "right" is that they may learn who of their female chums are foolish enough to to expose themselves to public ridicule! We are sorry to notice than "Jennie June" (Mrs Croly, one of the finest writers of gossip and sense, well mingled) was an actor on the "boards" of Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stanton, in one of her late demonstrations of female pantalooncy. Jennie would have known better if she had called on reflection to guide her. Mrs. gady S., in her long harangue to "ladies only," in cluding, of course, a lot of Solomon's "all is vanity and vexation of spirit" men, de nounced Clay as an adulterer at Washing ton while Mrs Clay was churning butter at Ashland slightly anathametized McFar land for interfering with spiritual affinities by shooting Richardson, and closed with a reference to Humboldt, Dickens, John Stuart Mills, Charlotte Bronte, Charles Dickens and others, who had erred in their fancied affinity. Her argument, in brief, was that a jury of women should settle all cases of domestic dissension and the parties be absolved from marriage vows in ease they were mad at each other. We heard, long ago of juries of women but they were called for different purposes tban separation of man and wife Ben. franklin, the printers' saint, the model Iban of our early Republic, is called li centious in Paris while the representative of our country. We have a notion to clip from tho N. Y. Tribune of May 18th, the whole lecture of this old termagant, simply to •Convert that portion of our lady readers #ho have dreamed that the way to edu «tte a woman was to«aqpi h*r with the toughness which necessarily attaches to ttan ijkhis business and social circulation. 9ie Capitol Bill. _Gen. Ilendrnk's paper, the Ottumwa %kurier, administers the following scath ing rebuke to the republican portion of the last general assembly. As the gener al is »ne among the leading republicans of the state, his remarks are all the more cut ting "In despite of the deliberate action of the last republican state conyention in direct contravention of the wishes of niae tenths of the tax payers of the state, a legislature which was almost a unit against the measure when it assembled, has finally been soft soldered,honey-fugled, coaxed and teased by the cunning arts of wily women, and seduced by the equally potent and more substantial consideration of mercenary men, to deliberately vote to saddle upon us is this very pinch and cri sis of our financial affairs, the intermina ble and intolerable burdens of taxation necessary to erect a gorgeous capital at Des Moines, for the benefit of real estate speculators in the neighborhood of its proposed locality, and to enrich the greedy, hungry pack of cormorant contractors, who expect to handle the people's money in constructing it." But in connection with the above casti gation of the legislature by a leading radical paper, it should not be forgotten that this same General Hendrick was one of the prime movers in getting this cor rupt legislature to appropriate fifteen thousand dollars to defray the expenses of a soldier-politico meeting at Des Moines during the canvass this fall. He is as deep in the mire as the balance are in the mud. He has helped to take from the treasury the most unjust appropriation, among the many, that was made by the last assembly. The whole radical party of the state have forfeited all the confi dence the people ever placed in them. They have taxed a people more heavily than those of almost any other section of the country. Yet they tell us that the state is out of debt. Where does the money go? Into such appropriations as the $15,000 for a soldier's meeting, $150, 000 for astatecapitol, $80,000 to pay in terest on a debt they tell us we do not owe, and a thousand other unjustifiable appropriations.—Burlington Arjus. We have a Congress who are advised by official figures, that despite the extra ordinary expenditures, there will be a sur plus revenue of $125,000,000 for the year, and yet they reject all propositions to re duce taxation. The Senate has just voted to renew the income tax and instead of redwing the taxes upon the common ne cessaries of life, the House is now con sidering a bill to increase them in various ways. We have a corps of revenue officers at Washington who, instead of adminis tering the law fairly and equitably, devote all their ability to the discovery of new and ingenious modes of hunting down the tax-payers, to extort extra shillings and additional pennies under technicali ties which would disgrace a Police Court pettifogger, relying upon the fact that ninety-nine men out of every hundred would rather pay an unjust tax than stand a lawsuit with the government. And now, to cap the climax, it is proposed to pass a bill to contract the currency to the amount of $300,(XX),000 in one year, and bankrupt everybody who has not already been bankrupted by paying taxes, under the pretence of reducing the interest on a a small portion (less than one-eigbth) of the national debt—a scheme, the very shadow of which has paralyzed every de partment of trade and industry in the United States. The St. Paul Press publishes a letter from Duluth which says that great excite ment has been created there by the arri val of a large body of armed Fenians en route to the aid of Riel at Red River. The letter says Each man is well armed with a breech loading rifle, revolver and knife. Their f»lans, of which they made no secret, are §o go northward from here to Rainy Lake 'ir river, via Vermillion Lake, over the f'heir oute lately traveled by Dr. Schulte. first stroke will be the capture of l'ort Fr.anci9 on Rainy Lake, which will Ije garrisoned by a few men, while the •lain army will harrass and dispute the passage of the British troops through the rivers, swamps, and mountains from Fort William te Red River. At tho proper time they will march down and join Riel's forces. One party has already started etrerland py the vertnillion road, and an» other will soon follaw, and a third is pre, paring to the same, destination in canoes »jy way of the St. Louis and Vermillion rivers. They will march directly west to Bed River' over the traveld roads, crossing the Mississippi at Crow Wing. The forces here are all said to be commanded by a distinguished Confederate officer, who suc cessfully fought General Banks in the Red River campaign Loutsiana. The men are nearly all exsoldiers, and are stalwart, hardy fellows, who seein to rejoice in an opportunity to strike John Bull. The Press does not vouch for the truth of this intelligence. Ex-Gov. Marshall, who has just returned from'Red River, re ports everything quite that Riel is the acknowledged master of the situation, and ia daily expecting news from Canada favorable to the demands of the provisional government.— Winona Republican.
