1 i-i W mw?**«&* www* ', 3 O E W O E FARMtKRS'-WTVES. From Governor Davids Address at the JBe- loit Wis.) JR»Y. There is another subject upon which I feel called upon to speak at the risk of offending prejudices caus ed by an immemorial custom. I firm ly believe that if there ia an over worked and underpaid claas in our community it is the wives of the American farmers. I have reason to know that the daily solitude and iso lation of their lives tells fearfully up on them, and that it will by the law of heridity tell upon their children. In examining the records of the Asylum for the insane of Minnesota, I was so much struck by the prepon derance of farmers' wives among the inmates that I asked men experienced in sad statistics of mental alienation what the reason is. The answer was immediate. It is due to this very solitude and isolation of which I have spoken. I was told that as a general rule their resources to while away the monotonous influences which surround their lives are far too few that they droop and pine without murmuring in their solitary and unsympathetic homes, until Care ami sorrow and child-birth pain Leave their traces in heart and brain. They entertain A wish they scarcely dare to own For something better than they have known, And drift day by day until to the surprise of all who knew the cheerful, healthy and well-formed girl, the asylum receives a jaded, haggard, sullen nature, with no hope or care for the morrow. I fear these words may not to them have the force tha\ they deserve, but I know that many women will instinctively recognize their truth. The fault is not with them. I is with the husbands and fathers. The husbands do not do enough to relieve their wives from the tedium of their daily life. The man goes in the evening to the store, or to a worse place his days have their frequent intermissions of visits to the town he attends the caucus, goes to the convention, takes part in the elec tion. He days are an everlasting tread-mill. The father of a farmer's family has a son and a daughter— both equally promising. In nine cases out of ten a most shocking in justice is worked upon the girl. The boy is headed for the Presidency. goes to school, to the academy— perhaps through college. Hi sister is kept at home waiting to become what her mother is. She submits, adores her brother John—thinks it is all right marries the son of some neighbor and puts her shoulder to the galling yoke. The sooner that men learn that the function of women in the social state is equal in importance and co-ordinate with that of man's though it may not be identicle, the better for every interest in this life. From whom, before birth ensues, does the child receive those ineffaceable characteristics which will attend him through life and into eternity Wh after birth moulds the mind, charac ter and morals of the child In near ly every instance when the child reaches that mature age in which the father begins to take charge of him his character has been fixed by her who bore him. Can you expect a perfectly elaborate character, fairly balanced and attuned from a parent who has herself been neglected, whose vision has been narrowed, whose functions have been dwarfed by a system which neither philosophy, physiology, science, humanity nor Christianity warrants in the least de gree? Woman is not the satellite of man. She is the hemisphere which makes up the full, round orb of humanity. She has its fairest features. Her con tinents may not be so great, or pres ent as commanding victories as those of her companion, but they have that without which man is but a hemis phere—a half-made monstrosity in a universe of harmony and beauty, des tined To sink darkling- In eternal night. If I should be called upon to speak the most important advice that I could conceive, to a people who are governing themselves, I should say, divide equally the culture and educa tion which you are able to give be tween the boy and the girl. Le them be what their Creator intended them to be, equals in the great scheme of life and being. A O S E A I N E S N E On Monday forenoon last a num ber of trotters were being exercised at the driving park, among them Effie Dean, driven by the well-known horse raiser, Alden Goldsmith. The horses were trotting at a lively pace and were all bunched in a heap, when one of Effie's reins broke, and Gold smith toppled over backward, and every spectator expected to see him drop from the sulky and be mangled by the feet of horses behind. This tragedy was prevented, however, for Goldsmith, whose feet caught in the front reste of the thills, recovered himself and then gave an exhibition of nerve that was most thrilling. The mare, released from the re-go straint of the taut reins, broke into a run and flew ahead like the wind, leaving all the others behind. While she was going at this rate Goldsmith crawled over her back until by reach ing forward he could get hold of the snaffle of the bit, and then lying up on her neck he brought her up with a sudden pull that carried her almost perpendicularly in the air. was heartily applauded by all who wit nessed the daring deed.—Bondoui (N. Y.) Freeman. —It is a very common thing in the present canvass for members of the Legislature in Iowa to interrogate candidates as to their views oh capi tal punishment.

Harry Gerrish was sworn and tes tified as follows: I am 16 years old and live in Monticello. was stand ing in the door when Gordon and another man were coming out of the postoflice on the 14th inst. Desmoud stepped up and struck Gordon as he was coming out. I thought he struck him about the neck. The blow stag gered Gordon back into the post-office. He recovered himself, drew his re volver, stepped to the door and fired at Desmond as the latter was step ping back. Desmond jumped into Brookin's harness shop and put his head and arm out and fired, and Gordon fired again at the same time, or a little befora Desmond. Gordon then stepped out from the door of the post-office and fired again. He then ran out into the street, and as he was going Desmond fired at him. When Gordon was nearly across the street he (Gordon) firsd another shot. This was just after Desmond shot the second time. Mr. Dearborn then came out of Mealey's store and ar rested Desmond, and John Holler ar rested Gordon about the same time. I saw'Desmond pull his vest up there was blood on his shirt. He was taken away in a wagon. Cross-examined: I thint Des mond struck Gordon with his left hand. Gordon was not attacking him in any way at the time. Des mond said something before he struck but I don't know what it was. I did not see Desmond until he struck the blow. I thought he appeared angry. When Gordon was struck I did not move from my position in the door, I stood there till I heard Desmond's shot He was outside the door when Gordon fired first. They were not eight feet apart when Gordon fired. Desmond was not quite to Brookin's at the time. He stepped back after he struck Gordon. Gordon had just spoken to Mr. Overton and Alexan der Mitchell who were approaching the post-office, just* before Desmond struck him. They were about fifty feet away. Gordon was staggered back past me when he was struck. C. S. Boyd testified I have lived in Monticello over 20 years. I was in town when the difficulty occurred between Gordon and Desmond, and saw the shooting. I was standing On the sidewalk just outside the post office door. I saw Desmond come out of the door at a rapid rate, fol lowed immediately by Gordon. Des mond ran into Brookin's shop door. Gordon followed Desmond out of the post-office to within six or seven feet of him, raised his pistol and fired. Desmond slammed the door of the harness shop to, re-opened it and said, "If that's your game—" and with that, fired. Gordon shot again just after Desmond's first fire. He stood very near the same spot as when he fired the first time. Gordon then step ped rather in front of the harness shop door, but still on the sidewalk, fired once or twice more. Whenheshot the last time he was about twelve feet from the sidewalk. He fired for or five times in all. When the fracas began I was about five feet from the post office door. As they came out, Gordon came between me and Des mond. G. W Gerrish testified I saw the shooting affair on the 14th*. Gordon was in the post office that morning. He started to go out the door. He had just stepped out the door, when Desmond stepped right along facing him, and made a pass at him with his hand or fist. The blow staggered him backward, and his hat flew off. Gordon recovered, drew a revolver and fired. He fired twice in rapid succession. I could not see Desmond after he made the pass at Gordon. I think Gordon fired four times. Gor don's third shot and Desmond's first were almost simultaneous—I think it was Desmond's first. I stood about four feet from Gordon when Des mond struck him, and Gordon was about the same distance from me when he fired. I did not move du ring the melee. I was outside the counter, in front of the post office boxes. I had seen Desmond standing outside on the stoop for about five minutes before Gordon went out. I noticed him particularly. He looked excited, and I tho'tight there would be trouble. It struck me that he was waiting for Gordon to come out. John Holler went qut with Gordon, Holler on the left. The foregoing is a brief outline of the testimony for the prosecution. Timothy and James Desmond, broth ers of William, were called by the defense and testified relative to Wil liam's movements prior to the affray. Their evidence was concluded at ten o'clock last evening, when a recess was taken until 'this morning. The examination is still in progress as we to press. —It is said that when a stranger visits Louisville, a friend inquires: "Seen the bridge?" "Yes." "Seen the canal "Yes."

J., resides William Fulchler, a well-to-do florist, who has two daughters. One, Amanda, about 20, has for a long time sold flowers and bouquets on Broadway. She was rather pretty. She met Philip Cushing, who resides in Hoboken, and does business in the Jersey Abattoir, and they agreed to get married but! old Mr. Fulchler had no idea of los ing his daughter, as upon her depend* ed the greater portion of his income, her sales amounting to twice as much as that of her sister and brother, who also sold flowers. Finally, Amanda told her parents that, unless' they gave their consent, she would run away. This so enraged the old gen tleman that he locked her up for two days. Finally he got her to give her consent to abandon her project. Things ran along very well for a week, when yesterday morning Aman da stole out of the house at daybreak with all the clothes she could carry, and started down the hill toward the Elysian Fields, it seems that there she was to be joined by dishing, who was to have a boat ready at the Elysian Fields dock to" convey her across to New York. This was done to avoid the recognition which might come in crossing the ferry, as she was well known. Mr. Fulchler, on get ting up a few seconds after his daugh ter had left, missed her, and, seeing all her clothes gone, at once started in pursuit He learned by a friend that the girl was seen going down the hill. He succeeded in tracing her to the dock, and was within a few feet of Amanda, when she saw him com ing. Cashing, her lover, was in the boat, and had just got all her clothes safely stored away, when she cried out, "Here comes father." Amanda, seeing that she was cer tain tb be captured, made a leap for thegooat, but unfortunately she miss ed her calculation and fell into the water. Then came a scene that was indeed most amusing. Amanda being a short, "chunky" little piece, she floundered about the boat like a tur tle, poor Cushing trying all he could to draw her up into the boat, but to no purpose. She would get one foot in, when the boat would tip and out she would go again. At last Cush ing made a desperate effort, and the result was that he, too, took a watery bath. In the meantime the father kept calling for help, when a moving hulk came and helped to rescue the unfor tunate couple. Amanda, to her great mortification, was wet, while poor Cushing sat On his little craft, not daring to venture ashore for fear that old Fulchler cwould carry out his' threats of putting a bullet through him. E E A S W E A O LONDON, Sept. 18.—Mr. James Caird, who is supposed to be a great authority on agricultural questions, has just published some interesting calculations as to the wheat crop of 1875. He shows that the fall in the prices of wheat last year was follow ed by a reduction of 330,000 acres in the breadth of wheat, or nearly one tenth of the total wheat crop in the United Kingdom, and that there has generally in other countries been a diminished area of wheat. This year the harvest in this country has been three weeks later £han last year, and its introduction to the market a whole month later and Mr. Caird calcu lates that, allowing for the surplus of last year, little more than eleven months' consumption will now have to be provided for until the next har vest comes round. This is 22,000, 000 quarters altogether, half of which we have at home, and the rest must come from abroad. From Russia and Germany a liberal supply may be ex pected. There is also a good stock to be drawn upon in France, and the farmers are holding back for higher prices. Mr. Caird says the chief ap prehension is in regard to the supply from the United States and Canada. "From that source during the past three years we have annually receiv ed between 6,000,000 and 7,000,000 quarters, or considerably more than half our total imports. Should this fail in any material degree, we might be pinched. About 1,000,000 quar ters of the old crop are reported to be available for export at the principal points of acccumulation in the East ern States, on the eve of the present harvest. In California the crop of this year is reported to be short, and is not able to afford more than anoth er million quarters for export." He adds that he has private advices from Chicago to the effect that the yield will be 25 per cent, short of last year, and even a loss of a bushel an acre, on such an immense breadth of Wheat, would be a serious thing. The con tinued warm weather here must be very beneficial in giving backward crops a chance of ripening.

SUCCESSFUL E I N W I E E A S E N LONDON, Sept. 18,-^Yesterday there was muoh elation at Woolwich on account^ the successful experi ments witljjp "Fraser" 81-ton gun, which for the moment is the biggest gun in the world, and, as its admirers also declare, the best It is a modifi cation of the Armstrong coil system, in which a few long double or for triple coils are substituted several. short ones, with a forged breech-piece. It weighs 81 tons with out the carriage, which brings the to tal weight up to 120 tons, and is near ly 27 feet long. There is first an in ner steel tube, rifled with eight grooves of the ordinary Woolwich pattern, and having a bore 24 feet with a pri mary calibre of 14J inches, which is afterward to be made 16 inches, when the tube will have a mean thickness of 4 inches. The inner coil is 10.5 inches thick and the outer coil 13.5 inches. There are five coils in all, which are arranged to overlap and underlie, so that each locks into the coil immediately preceding it, thus making the whole structure as homo geneous as possible. Six rounds were fired yesterday with powder charges beginning at 170 pounds and going up to 240 pounds,—the largest charge ever fired from a cannon,—and pro jectiles of about 1,258 pounds. The muzzle velocity ranged from about 1,400 feet per second to 1,550. After the first shot an extracting rod broke offinside thegun and a small er gunner volunteered to go in after it. He was immediately hoisted up by his comrades, and rammed in head first, like so much ammunition, till nothing was visible of him but the soles of his boots. He had to go in five times before he could tie a rope: round the obstruction and pull it out. It is supposed that the new gun probably carry a half-ton shot 7 or 8 miles but though there are .already guns which can carry 5 or 6 miles, something oyer 2 miles is the maxi mum for practical purposes. So that the capacity of the 81-ton gun in this way, whatever may be its full ex tent, is not of much consequence. It is expected.that it can pierce from 18 to 20 inches of iron-plating. Though the "Fraser" is, for the present, the biggest gun in existence, there are, it seems, guns of 100 and 110 tons be ing made for the Italian and some other foreign Governments, and Sir W. Armstrong has also in view a 150-tonner. Mr. Fraser, however, is quite in the mood to keep pace with the age, and looks forward to a 160 ton monster which will fire a 1-ton shot that at a wide range will make a fissure equal to that made the other day in the Vanguard by the prow of the Iron Duke.
