Let every colored man who favors the elevation of his race subscribe for the Lead er; and let every white man who believe that slavery wa.s a crme against humanity and that it is the duty of the ruling race to aid the Negro in his struggle for moral, social and intellectual elevation do likewise. The .Republicans made a clean sweep in the San Francisco election Thursday, electing the Mayor by 2,500. ssssstms The friends of Dr.II.IIighland Gar nett, of 2sew York, presented him with a fine gold watch and chain re cently. Thus far the .Republicans have nominated two colored men in Ohio for Legislative honors. Colonel Robt. Harlan is on the ticket ia Hamilton Countv, and John P. Greene in Cava hoga Comity. Doctors Ueyburn, Woodward and Barnes have retired from the corps of surgeons attending the President, leaving Drs. Bliss, Agnew and Ham ilton to conduct the case. The change was made at the request of the President himself, who did not like to have so many physicians. Missouri comes to the front again with another daring train robbery. Twelve masked men with Henry re peating rifles, stopped a train on the Chicago and Alton road, a few miles this side of Kansas City, and robbed the express car and passengers of a large amount of money over $20, 000, and then escaped. It is with pleasure that the Leader can say of Hon. J. S. Hinton, that in every case where the interests of the colored people are to be considered, he may always be depended upon as the champion of their cause. For twenty years he has been working for the good of the colored people of Indiana, and his interest in their well fare does not seem to flag. Mr. Hinton will, no doubt,be remembered by those for whom he labors. Hon. B. K. Bruce will deliver his first speech in the Ohio Campaign at Chillicothe on the 20th instant. On the invitation or Governor Foster, IJegister Bruce will make quite a number of speeches in Ohio. We are informed that the colored peo ple of Chillicothe are making grand preparations to give him a royal reception. We shall endeavor to have the speech and a full account of the meeting reported for The Leader. We think our newspapers should suspend their judgment on Lieutenant Flipper and Hon. G. W. Williams until they know the full facts in the case. We do not wish to shield any man who is guilty of wrong, but we do believe that every man should have the benefit of the doubt until his guilt is established. Therefore, for charity's sake, we ask our newspapers to wait until they know the facts before they condemn any one. Brother Cromwell, of the People's Advocate, will not. be charged anything for this advice. PILORIKAQE TO LINCOLN'S TOMB AT SPRINGFIELD, ILLINOIS. It is now nearly nineteen years since Abraham Lincoln immortalized his own name, emancipated a race and re-enthroned Liberty on the American continent, by issuing the famous Emancipation Proclamation. On September 22, 1802, he decreed the abolishment of slavery in the then rebellious States, the decree to go into effect in one hundred days, January 1, 1803. The martyred President barely lived long enough to see his memorable proclamation carried to successful execution by the noble heroes of the Union Army, when he, like President Garfield, was striken down by the treacherous hand of a cowardly murderer that . pioneer of political assassination and earlier Guiteau, J. Wilkes Looth. It is now more than sixteen years since the sad funeraljoortege wended. its way Westward from Washington, D. C, to Springfield, Illinois, with all that wa mortal of the Liberator of the Negro linos in America. It was a sad, mournful, melancholy iourney, met everywhere by the bowed head and tcar-bedimned eye of every true patriot, black or white. But while Lincoln's body, like John Brown's, and Sumner's, and Gar rison's, lies mouldering in his grave, his soul goes marching on, and will continue to march on until the joyful sunlight of universal liberty shall shed its benignant rays upon the liberated form of every human being on the faceof.God's green earth. We are glad to announce now that after the remains of our martyred President have lain entombed for more thac sixteen years in the mau soleum at Springfield, Illinois, ar rangements have been made for a grand pilgrimago to that place of all who aro desirous of visiting a spot so intimately endeared to every patri otic American, and especially to every patriotic Negro American. This pilgrimage will occur September 22, the nineteenth anniversary of the issuance of the emancipation proclamation. Many eminent gen tlemen have been invited to be pres ent on this occasion, among them, Governor Cullom, who will deliver the welcoming address, cx-Scnator Bruce, Kobt. T. Lincoln, War Secre tary, Hon. Fred Douglass, Governor A. G. Porter, and Governor Foster, of Ohio. It will be a day of great pleasure and enjoyment to all who attend. TWO OPINION. Two distinguished citizens ofTerre Haute have expressed their opinions on the Presidential inability question. Senator D. W. Vorhees claims that there is nothing, in the Constitution or laws to warrant Vice-Peesident Arthur in assuming the duties of the Presidency. He thinks that a Leg islative enactment interpreting the inability clause of the Constitution, is necessary before the Vice-President could legally perform Presidential duties during the sickness of the Chief Magistrate. Ex-Secretary of the Navy Thompson takes an entirely different view of the question. He thinks that it is the lawful duty of the Vice-President to assume the duties of the Presidency during the inability of the Executive from sick ness or any other cause. He thinks that the only preliminaries necessary to this would be for the President's physicians to certify to the Cabinet and Vice-President the inability of the President to discharge the duties of the Chief Magistracy. Then the Vice-President would of his own ac cord, assume the Presidential duties until such time as the President should bo able to reassuraehis duties This is an important question and will no doubt receive such attention in the future. The Constitutional provision hould be given some legal interpre tation by Congress as to leave no doubt of the duty of the Vico-Presi dent in such an emergency as the present. AT LONG BRANCH. The President's wish has at last been gratified, and he has been re moved from the White House to Long Branch. The removal was accom plished Tuesday without detriment to the distinguished patient. The Presi dential train left Washington about 6 o'clock a.:m. and arrived at Long Branch shortly after 1 in the after noon. The President was iramedi ately conveyed to the Francklyn cottage near the Elberon Hotel. At every station along the road great crewds of sympathizing people were gathered and with uncovered heads reverentially witnessed the passing of the Presidential train. A very high rate of speed was maintained most of the trip, it having been discovered that there was less annoyance than at a lower rate. The natural fatigue incidental to tho journey, resulted in considerable increase in the Presi dent's pulse and temperature, and caused much apprehension through out the country Happily, however, the invigorating ocean breeze, together wiih tho President's indom itable will, soon caused a change for the better. It is the judgment of the physicians that in a few days there will be perceptible a very marked change lor the better. The latest reports received before going to press indicate that the President is steadily improving, and will soon be out of danger. A llaytiau Princess. I Boston Traveller. The face of the Princess Soulouque was a dead jet black, but the features were softly moulded, and, with a fine set of laughing teeth, made her appearance prepossessing. She wore a jaunty, white turban hat, with an immense cardinal red feather floating away behind like a ship's pennon. Her riding dress was of sky-blue, very long, and trailing in the -dust. Around her waist was a broad gold . sash, and in her bosom she wore a sapphire brooch e almost as large as a saucer. She was mounted on a Venezuelan horse about sixteen hands high, which was made a present to her father by the President of Venezuela. The horse was as remarkable as the woman on his back. He was a clear cream color all over the body, with long, snow-white mane and tail, and most admirable shape. The lady's riding whip had a gold handle studded with precious stones, and the bridle chain was of solid silver. She wore yejlow leather gloves, with gauntlets extending as far as the elbow. Her voice had a tendency to falsetto, and its tones were peculiarly entertaining to hear. The princess, but no longer a princess by the laws of thejland, was educated in Europe, and spoke our lan-i'uage. THE CITY COUNCIL. Council met in regular sowion Monday night, with twenty-one members present. OoJncilman Thallium presided.

The Chief Fire Engineer was granted leave of absence to attend the annual meeting of Chief Fire Engineers at Richmond, Va., Sep tember 10. A Day Work for Women. INew York Herald. The question as to how many hours consti tute a day's work is one with which most people are familiar. It has been fought over by at least two generations, with the result that the working day has been reduced from thirteen or fourteen hours to ten, with bene fit to both employer and employed, and as not one man in a dozen can work even ten hours a day without saving himself in the morning in order to last until six in the even ing, the chances are that the eight-hour movement will finally succeed. But although in the field and shop, New England mills ex cepted, a day's labor for men is included in ten hours, what has woman gained by the labor agitation? Not one woman In a hun dred works in store or factory: her duties either as mistress or servant, are perfermed, In ine home, and there is no exaggeration in the statement that they never end. f rom tho lighting of the kitchen fire, or the wak ing of the children, to tho extinguishing of the last light in the house, woman's brain and hand must be busy, and wealth generally increases her labor instead of diminishing it. The shop girl has her work assigned to her. She has only to begin, without any fore thought, at a stated hour and end at another. But every successful mistress of a house hold, small or great, must combine the qualities of designer, overseer and workman, and realize that not only property, but health, and even life itself, are in one wav or another seriously affected by her work. Perhaps ninety-nine women in a hundred fail to realize the responsibilities of their Dwition: but, all the same, their work must be done. How it is done every careful observer knows. In spite of health, love and money, the most fortunateclasses of the sex are gen erally composed of women who are practi cally used up before men of the same age nave even reached their prime. The finest looking specimens of manhood, in every c las, are to be found among men between the ages of thirty -five and fifty; but how many comely women can be found among those who have compassed only the smal.er number of years mentioned abovo? Tho home workot woman, whether she be wi'e or servant, needs revision. If only genius can enable a person to bo at the same timo master and servant, nurse aud rulor, then genius in this direction, if there is any, should make itself known for the benefit of those who are lighting magnificently against overwhe'mirg odds. With a slighter physique than man, a physique that is oc casionally subject to peculiar duties to which that of man can offer no parallel, woman is expected to daily endure a strain that no man would tolerate for any length of time. Until what is modestly cafied house-keeping is recognized a9 the noble t science that it really is, and is carefully studied, the slaughter of women by overwork will con tinue, for at present it requires that every woman shall be a prodigy of sense, industry and endurance. The Law of Diminishing Productiveness Professor Cairnes, in his "Principles of Political Lconony," thu3 states this law: "In any given state of the arts of produc tion, the returns to human industry em ployed upon natural agents will, up to a certain point, be the maximum whicj tho.se natural agents, cultivated with the degree of skill brought to bear upon them, are capable of yielding, but, after this point has been passed, though an increased application of labor and capital will obtain an increased return, it will not obtain a proportionally increased return. On the contrary, every further increase of outlay always assuming that the skill employed in applying it re mains the same as it was before will be attended with a return constantly diminish ing.' John Stuart Mill, who discusses this prin- cipie somewnai ai large, says: "After a certain and not very advanced stage in the progress of agriculture as soon, in fact, as mankind have applied themselves to cultivation with any energy and brought to it any tolerable tools from that time it is the law of production from the land that, in any given state of agricultural skill and knowledge, by increasing the labor the pro duce is not increased in an equal degree Doubling the labor does not double the produce: or, to express the same thing in other words, every increase of produce is ob tained by a more than proportional increase in the application of 'labor to the land. That the produce of land increases, coeteria paribus, in a diminishing ratio to the in crease in the labor employed is, as we have said (allowing for occasional and temporary exceptions), the universal law of agricul tural industry." The principle applies to those industries that are called "extractive' rather than manufacturing; industries which take their products directly from the land, as in the case of agriculture and mining. Up to a certain maximum, these products may be increased by increasing the labor; but the former increase will not be proportional to the latter. Advanced knowledge and skill applied to agriculture and various inven tions for a cheaper tillage of the soil may counteract and modify this law of diminish ing productiveness; yet they do not andean not destroy the general fact. Production has a tendency to exhaust rich virgin soils; and if their fertility is kept up to the orig inal state or carried beyond it, the products are obtained at more than a proportional in. crease of cost in the process of procurement. If inferior lands or land? more distant from the market are selected for the purpose of supplying the wants of the cultivators, or of the general public, then in both cases the returns, even though they should be abso lutelv greater, will bo procured and brought to the market by more than a proportional increase of expense. The same principle applies to mining. The loDger a mine is worked the more it costa to work it, in proportion to its pro ducts. It costs more labor and capital to get a ton of coal from the depth of 500 feet in the earth than it does to take it from a depth of 100 feet, even though the mine may show no signs of exhaustion. Improvements in vhe process of mining, as in the case of agriculture, may modify this general fact, but they cannot do away with it altogether, nor can they ex tend the modification beyond certain limits. We have no method by which we can in crease the quantity of land, or multiply mines, or add to their richness; and, hence, whan industry performs the extractive pro cess upon either, it must, after passing a cer tain point, do so under the law of diminish ing productiveness, and that, too, notwith standing all the abatements, modifications and antagonisms supplied by increasing skill and economy in the application, of labor.. This is the great reason why extensive pro ducts not manufactures, whos production may be almost indefinitely cheapened by ta labor-saving inventions ot machinery have a tendency to rise in their average normal! value with the progress of society and the increase of population. More of them are wanted as the wants of society increase; but they are procured a a greater proportional cost. "All natuial agents," says John Stuart Mill, "which are-limited in quantity are not only limited ia their ultimate1 productive power, but, long before that power is stretched to tae utmost, they yield to any additional demands on progressiv1 ,? border terms. Discussion of the Beverage Jation. In respect to the popular notion that coffee is an unhealthy beverage, that it keeps up constant irritation of the stomach and brings on depressions of spirits, etc, Dr. Richardson, the well known English scient ist, while admitting that the article can not be taken in excess without producing dys pepsia and irritation, nevertheless asserts that,moderately used, it is an invigorating, healthful and wholesome drink, bringing a man's best energies into play. On the oth er hand Dr. Bock, of Ixipsic, an eminent authority, declares that tha nervousness and peevishness of our times are chiefly attri butable to tea and coffee, they producing a chronic derangement of the digestive organs.

YOUNG AMERICAN GIRLS IN ITALY. Clara Louise Kellogs Kegrets that ho Many re Tüere. . Interview in tha New York Herald. "I presume you found Italy overrun with young American girls who were provided with slender purses and diaphanous voices, but who expect to astonish tho world with their operatic brilliancy!" 'Yes, I am sorry to Bay that I found hun dreds and hundreds there, and among that number were many, very many, in the direst distress. My attention was attracted to them by their piteous letters asking lor assistance, pecuniary and influential, and I sought them out to see what could be done for them. The state of affairs I discovered was some thing terrible. I can not go into all the de tails, but I will tell you so mucn as i can oi the true state of affairs in musical circles in Italy into which American girls penetrate. I made it mv business to talk with them, to investigate the truth of what they said, and I then made an investigation of the musical schools and threatrical agencies of Italy to enlighten myself further on certain points. 1 he average American girl goes to naiy with a small sum of money, being under the impression that she can live on a mere pittance, that the best masters teach for little or nothing, and that she will breathe in musical genius and dramatic talent by merely breathing in the balmly air ot itaiy. She finds when she goes there that it costs more money and more time to get even a decent musical education that her purse will allow, but she studies and practices and battles and starves along, writing cheerful and encouraging letters home for fear friends and family will recall her, and struggling for very life all the while in Milian or some such city. Injudicious friends have told her that she will be another Patti or Nilsson, and she hugs and cherishes this mistaken idea with a fondtlelusion and ambition at first, and with a dull dread of the reality and a tenacity of despairing purpose under pinching starvation as funds run low at the last that is piteous to witness. Years have come and gone, and she has been the usual round of the masters, each of whom has taught her for a while and then kindly bade her go home; that she will never ao any thing groat 1 But Mary is under a fascinat ing delusion and she seeks those who will buoy up her hopes. She falls into the hands of less scrupulous masters. So she goes on, from bad to worse, till she finds herself penniless in Milan. Now comes the worst phase of the whole affair; and what 1 am about to say I say as truth, after the most careful investigation of facts. Asa rule the poor girl fin 1s in the end that she has little nopes of obtaining public success; and I say that she is too often set upon by a certain unscrupulous set of men infesting these cities who will do all in their power, under promise of engagements, to lead her away where her associations will bq sucb that she will be morally destroyed. Even if she has a good, but not great voice, she can probably gain no public appearance except under two conditions she must buy her way in, or she must submit to the demands of those influ ential friends of the management whose word is law at the Theaters. "This is plain speaking; but I tell you my investigations, the stories and tears of poor" girls who came to me in Italy, and told me their sad tales, made me vow that I would open my mouth and speak of this through the land when I came home. I would say to mothers whose young daughters are leaving heme with delusive dreams of sunny days in Italy, and an easy path to success; Keep your daughter at home unless you can give her protection in watchful friends and an independent in come. I say to you, mothers, that you are sending your daughters into temptation that you do not appreciate. They will be tried and tempted as you can not imagine. My investigations in Italy have led me to believe your daughters need not go abroad; that we have good masters here. I think it entirely unnecessary for their ordinary musical edu cation. When that is finished, then send them to Italy for a short period to receive the finishing touches, and to le-rn roles, and then to return. Before they go you will kave discovered whether their voices will warrant that Italian trip. Generally you can see for yourself that it is a useless undertaking. .But do not think that aver age merit will open the stage doors of Ital ian Opera Honses. It will not. And I say this to you on the word ot more than one, more than fifty, Amei ican girls whom I saw there, as many of whom as I sent to their homes in America." The Early Fall Mosquito.

Place confidence in your children. Do not lt them know your suspicions. Com mend them for their efforts, and encourage them with your interest. Be moderate in the number of your in timate friends, and rest assured you can have no better or trustier confidant than the wo- man who bears your name, mi -. l 1 V xi'e superiority oi man nas aiwaa uwu acknowledged, but a husband should have manly understanding enough not to assert it over his wife. Be strictly moral; make your habits classical; you are the criterion of your wife and family. If they are not what they ought to be, you are the responsible party. If your wife is out of temper fail to see it, remembering that there are a thousand 1 minor vexations about her lot of which you are entirely ignorant. Never speak harshly. There are two ways of governing a family; one by brute force, tho other by firm but gentle authority. The first is very effectual, and will secure not only ready obedience and submission, but tho undying animosity of your unfortunate children. Let domestic matters alone; you know nothing about them, and if you did they are not the kind of cares for a man to assume. Be the cashier and make your wife business manager of the home. If she proves incap able, offers suggestions which she will thankfully receive if made in the right way. Dress as well as your means will allow, but be neither a dandy nor a sloven. Be sure that your wife is always dressed better than you are, and never lose an opportunity to praise her taste, which is an easy and most effectual way to secure her good will. Besides, it is a very slight sacrifice at the altar of her vanity. Avoid contradicting your wife; you never did it before and should not do it after mar riage. If you do indulge in a lively argu ment or sharp dispute, conclude it with some good humored pleasantry to show that you are neither hurt yourself, nor intend that she should be. In all your arguments and controversies never make her uncongenial friends or relatives the subject, and do not review the mistakes or misdeeds of her past life. There may have been a thousand fol lies which vanity or misfortune drew her into, and which always defeated their pur pose, but you will be most kind and she most grateful if you do not open with re membrances, wounds which yon cannot heal. Do not humiliate your wife by making her feel her dependence. Never buy her dresses, hats or other wearing apparel, as you rob her of half the delight that of shopping and exercising her individual taste. Give her an allowance and pay it regularly as you do your servants', and never be sordid enough to bring her to an account about the way she spends it. She has sensibilities on this point that you are bound to respect. Do not grumble about the grocer and butcher bills till your bread and butter almost chokes her and she wishes she was in the bottom of the lake with a millstone around her neck. She is the weaker, and at your mercy, and if you fail to properly care for her you are a perjurer. Milk and Biscuit Lunches. Chicago Tribune. Not more than a month ago a strong tem perance man living a short distance from this citv added a feature to the restaurant business in Chicago which has proved nut quite a stroke for himself, but which appears to nave contriDutea in no sman uegree w the moral good of at least a portion of the community. Tho new departure consisted fiimnlv in the establishment of a sort of '(Juaker dairy, where notning stronger in tho wav of liamd refreshment than milk, tea r.j -- .... or coflV c, with a biscuit thrown in, could bo obtained. The gentleman, who is a dairy man himself, found himself in those day with a surplus of some fifty quarts of milk per diem a quantity which he moderately deemed sufficient for the wants ot those who might le ir;clined to patronize a temperance lunch of that sort at a niekie a head. The result proved that he had greatly miscal culated. The mixture jumped into pop ularity from the start. Before the end of the first week he fold 150 quarts. An ade quate id a of the extent, of the business to day m:iy be obtained from tbe statement that he has no less than three "dairies" run ning in the city, at which he stlls 28 cans or 224 gallons of milk, 00 dozen biscuits, 140 pies, 125 dozen loaves of bread, and a cor responding array of crackers,doughnuts and other articles entering into the exclusively eheap dairy -lunch, to say nothing of his re ceipts from other features of his bill cf fare, which, it may well be imagined, is one that even a temperance lecturer might sit down to without the least qualms of conscience or any doubts as to wnether there was any thing in the nature of liquor concealed about the premises. Sixteen nundred people visit and are lunched at the aforesaid dairies daily, and the business is constantly increasing. While furnishing hot and cold meats, pastry of all kinds.and nearly all the other things to be found at a restaurant bill of fare, the dairy feature of a glass of milk or buttermilk, with a biscuit, doughnut, bun or crackers continues to be the specialty at the steadily maintained tariff of a nickel. Jasper, the Negro Preacher. Boston Congregationalist.l I regret that I have forgotten the preach -er's text, which was, howtver, from the early part of the Book of Acts, and, by a most remarkable exegetical process, was con verted into an argument in favor ot an un educated ministry. But, though his text did little to establish Jasper's right to preach, his sermon did much. He had the faults of negro oratory, exaggerated action, a painful intensity, together with a sort of gasp, as if for breath to keep so hot a hre burning; but the absorbed attention of his hearers, to gether with a suppressed excitement which it was difficult not to feel, proved that the speaker had a real power. . The fire, more over, seemed truly kindled from above, the impression being that jf great sincerity and earnestness. I will attempt to give an account of one passage which may convey some idea of his peculiar manner. Tbe passage was a de scription of Christ's coming to earth to pro cure his bride. He then began with these words: "lhe lord came to the earth in the year one. He then recounted-in won defully vivid language how He sought out His bride, called her to Himself, separated her from the world, conquered her enemies, exalted her in honor. At last He has fan ished the work; has clothed her in white, has brought her down to the river's edge, and has got her coming over. Ascending then to Heaven He appears before the Father, and addresses Ilim in these words "Father. I've done been to earth and died. and now I've obtained my bride and I am aware ve cot her comins over.'' I am aware that what I am savin? convevs but a faint im pression of this remarkable passage of ora tory; but that word got, with ita emphasis of joyful sympathy and triumph, rings in my ears to this day,a climax of eloquent feel ing which I have seldom heard equalled Long before the sermon was through, we all understood that it was Jasper who was speaking. "Where another man says I, or uses the more impersonal we, this man said Jasper. He was not afraid to talk a good deal about Jasper, and kept himself con stantly on terms with his hearers. Toward the close, in a scarcely less familiar, though reverend way, he had a conversation with God, as friend with friend. I remember his reminding the Lord that he had not shunned His battles, and that the enemy had sometimes smitten him, Whereupon he struck hi3 breast with sudden emphasis and cried out: "Herd Lord, herel'' He had turned no coward's back to the foe. When the services were over I chanced upon a citizen of Richmond, almost the only white man besiie myself whom I saw at the service, who told me some things I was interested to kuow about the colored preachers. In the most of them he bad lit tle confidence. Jasper was the bright ex ception, a man not only of ability, bat of genuine piety. Afterward introduced by this gentleman, I had a conversation with Jasper, at the close of which he uttered over me some words of benediction, spoken with real dignity and grace, which I shall carry with me to the end in plwant memory of a remarkable man, and a very superior repre sentative of his race. EXPRESSIONS. Adversary borrow? its sharpest sting from our impatience. An exchange asks, "What do we drink?" Soda water as a rule, old rye as an excep tion. "You are not fond of money for itself?" "Oh, no," said Johnsonburg, "I am fond of it for myself." Sam. B., "Please inform mo who is the author f 'That Wife of Mine?" We presume your father-in-law is. A man has no more right to say an un civil thing than to act one; no more right to say a rude thing to anothei than to knock him down. "If you remain with me fifty years, Pat, I will increase your wages." Pat ' Bo ja bers, make it a hundred, but increase tte wages now." Never confine your secrets to paper; it is like throwing a stone into the air, and if you know who throws the stone you do not know where it may fall. Young Kobin was inexcusable, perhaps, in stealing a kiss from Mary while walking through the tall corn, but she was in a maize, and, of course, was not responsible. There is only now and then an opportu nity of displaying great courage or even great wisdom ; but every hour in the day offers a chance to show our good nature. The preacher took for his text: "He giv eth his beloved sleep." And then he said, as he glanced around, that the way his con gregation had worked itself into the affec tions of the Lord was amazing.
