From the April Technologist. IT 18 AN OLD STORY. : The cry that earnest aud noble women ore daily becoming more rare; that the Dlaces of the brave-heartea ana gentle are usurped by the frivolous and dissi pated, in one that ia by no means new. Iwo hundrea years ago tne wits oi &ng- land indulged in. the. same cant,-and said the same smart things in regard to the same matter; and lung before that time the prophet had asked the people of his daf why the" said that "the former daVi were betttT thnn these? and re bilked them roundly by telling them that they did not consider wisely concern ing this matter. w e nave neara many " reverend grannies," both with and without petticoats, dwelling at length upon the degeneracy of the men and women of the present day; no days like the old days; no such wise men now as those that laid sage hands upon their young beads; no such mothers as their mothers, and, inferentially, no such young men and women now as they were in their prime, , , x , i ; , AWiTVlTH SITH CAXTl The skie are us bright to-day as they ever were since human history began to record the changes of the years; statis tics show that the men of to-day are larg er, stronger, longer-lived and less vicious tliaa those that lived five hundred years ao, and among the women there are hearts as brave and true, nitures as warm and affectionate, minds as intelligent and souls as noble as ever existed among our grandmothers, of either sex. i A n.KA Fog TUB GIRLS. she will remain content to listen to shepherd's reed or a cornstalk fiddle? , THE CROAKERS AT FAULT. These old croakers forget two things In the first place, that the grandmothers of the period were once girls, as wild as any girls that we have now; unu, see onuly, that the greater refinement. In higher education, and the nobler views of the modern girls are things thet the old logics, who have descended to us from former generation, are totally unable t understand. That the girl of the period is perfectly able to rough it, perfectly able to live in a log bouse, milk the cows, and tend the babies, we have no, doubt, for we nave seen her uo it on more tlni one occasion when necessity required But if she should prefer the coarse bhso ciations tbat accompany a litctot what called roughing it to the refined and cle vating influences that, in the nineteenth century, have made our Christian homes the nurseries of modern civilization, she would deny her birthright, and prove false to the intellectual opportunities with which Bhe has been so marveiousiy blessed. KO USE FOR THE STOWE MODELS When Mrs. Stowe and her sister hold up for admiration and imitation the women of her young days days when a bride was married with sheets an table-cloths of her" own weaving, with counterpanes and toilet-covers wrought in divers embroidery by her own and her sister's hands" they seek to recall times that have passed away, we ;hope never to return sAs theso ladies well observe, ' those remarkable women old were made by circumstances;" we can only add a hope that neither the women nor the circumstances will ever be reproduced on this planet. In their own departments, for the tired muscles of the weary worker, men have substitut ed muscles of iron, sinews of steel, and nerves of brass, propelled by heart and lungs that never tire while the coal fields of Pennsylvania hold out; and shall we condemn our wives and daughters to th humdrum of the spinning-wheel and dis tatlftAo, indeed, fcvon tuo sewing machine is bad enough, and it won t be long until some of us succeed in harness ing the physical forces to it, so as t o give the tired limbs ot the sewing gin a noli day. REQUIREMENTS OF OUR CIVILIZATION, It is a singular fact that we often meet people who, having come down to us from the days ot stage coaches, two shil ling postages and whale-oil lights, are anxious to revive the hamts and educa tion of these oldUimes in the days of gas, telegraph and lightning-express trains. Their highest ambition is to have clean linen, make good butter, and save money points that are all very commendable but that do not altogether fulfill the re quirements of i modern civilization These people forget that a wider civiliza tion involves wider necessities. They tell us to limit our desires, being igno rant of the truth that the extent of our desires is the measure of our culture and that the advice is like telling a man to cut on his leet when he wants boots And so persistent are these got diaani sages in recommending ns to restrict our desires and "simplify" our tastes; to confine ourselves to the gratification of homely-pleasures, which with them sig nifies the obtaining of mere material necessaries (and pork and beans at that), that' we often feel tempted to turn from them in disgust, and to exclaim: ," Give me the- luxuries of life, and I will dis pense with the necessaries. A WORTHY WOMANHOOD WASTED, These thoughts have been forced upon us by the evident changes that must take place in the education of our voting women as well as our young men. ml we deprecate any system that would tend to convert the latter into mere tenders of machines, much more should we con demn any system, the tendency of which would' be 'to degrade the former below even this humble level, and convert them into the machines themselves. We do not want spinning machines, sewing ma chines, or knitting machines for wives; we want women, and that all around us "THERE IH ABI'XDAXT material for the production of good women, ma terial which it requires but proper educa tion to develop, we feel perfectly satis fied. All this twaddle about the degen eracy of modern women is the silliest kind of nonsense. li TRt nlRI4 AA ROOD AS EVER.. ' 11 That we are in a transition state; that passing from the rude culture of our fore fathers to .the higher education that awaits us, we have reached a somewhat anomalous condition, no one can fur a moment douhl But the fault lies with the times, and with the peculiar condi tions of humau progress, and not with the girl of the period.

I'punaylvnnia House linrned The Three Flue Ilonf a Tolal I.oa Two Pernvas Pes-iah Inanrauce, , $50,000. From the Davenport (Ia.) Democrat, April 4. One of the most destructive fires that has ever visited the city, occurred at an early hour this morning, whereby a large hotel and three capacious dwelling houses were entirely consumed. The Pennsyl vania House the seoond largest hotel in the city, and the two brick bouses be longing to M. C. Davis 4 Sons, and a frame residence owned by Mr. H. John son were bnrned to the ground. The exact facts in this terrible calamity, are as follows: The hotel was a stone structure, 130 by 62J f'tt hut stories high built in 1854, the house and furniture costing at that time, $75,000. There were 1 10 rooms, capublo of accommodating, if necessity required, some three hundred people. The inmntes all safely escaped, with the exception of one man, Henry Cross, a German teamster, in the employ of the house. VV ben last seen he was going up stairs at twelve o'clock last night, and said he was going to bed. Mr. Miller kicked in the panel to his door, but did not see him come down stairs, neither has the young man been seen to-duy. It is feared he perished in the blinding smoke and names. The gentleman whom Mr. Davis ad mitted at three o'clock was Mr. Stuck wrath, brother of Louts Stuckwrath, oi this city. It was thought the young man may have gone out on the Western train, hut as nothing has been heard of him, it is now probable that be also died tern bly in the flames. . ' The flames spread rupidly.and ignited the roof of the adjoining house, one of the three built by Mr. Davis in 1K(5. This was occupied by Judge T. D. En- gal, mid used as a boarding-house, such was the extreme heat and its nearness to the burning hotel that it was soon be- ond hope of saving. 1 be several fann ies made good their escape, and saved nearly all their furniture, though in a damaged condition. loe next building was a frame dwel ling owned by Mr. H. Johnson; but re cently it hud been entirely refitted, painted and papered throughout, and enlarged into a spacious and comforta ble dwelling. Desperate ettorts were made to save this, but it was of no avail. Water was thrown on it incessantly, but at a critical moment the supply was ex hausted, and the flames gained the upper band. All the furniture and a line piano were saved. House number three, one of the bricks, was occupied by Mr. and Miss Smith. Part of it was used for a carpet weaving establishment, and the rest of the rooms occupied by boarders. The furniture and household goods were greatly dam aged in their hasty exit from the build ing, for at first it did not seem possible that this building was also doomed. This loss falls heavily on its inmates. and we understand there is but little in surance on any of the lost valuables. Here the flames were subdued, by great exertion, although the next house was in mminent danger and repeatedly caught fire. Had this building not been saved the entire block, clear to Rock Island street, would have become a prey to the flames. As yet, the LOSS OX GOODS AND FURNITURE can hardly be estimated. As is the case generally, many goods that were brought away intact, were drenched through and through by water and spoiled. Many pieces of fine furniture are badly smashed and broken. Money will not again re place the many articles which were of but little value to any one but their owners. THE SERVANT CIRLS the Pennsylvania House are, very- many of them, left in a pitiable condi tion. 1 here were ten of them in all, and but few, if any, saved anything from the ames. Nearly all this morning they were without shoes, and some bad but articles of dress, several are not acquainted with a soul in the city, and ave neither money, home nor Inends. A subscription paper for their relief was talked of to-dar. and it is to be hoped that something of the kind may be done. heir case is a sad one, and calls for generous, aid and sympathy from all. One of them, Mary Donnell, lost all her valuables and $10 in money hard earn ings saved up through many months. INflPEKTS. A Mr, Hoover, who roomed on the ird floor, when alarmed, rushed to the head of the stairs to find egress, but found them nearly burned away. Run ning to the back stairway he taw them rapped in a sheet of name, lie re turned to his own room, and swinging liims If out of the window, let himself down l.y aid of the window sills until tion. From the evidence thus fur, it would seem that it - was the deliberate work of some fiend in human shape.

Mr. Wilson, as the most ag grieved, sent the challenge.

Hill sad dale are strongly blended, and Hat grassy plains leading to the city in the foreground form a strong contrast to the high peaks of the coast range in the rear ot the picture. The ground was soon staked off, and the principals placed in position. At a given signal each was to wheel and hre, On giving the signal Wilson turned quickly and pulled, but the rifle missed hre. Iieane, not so hurriedly, magnani mously withheld his shot, refusing the advantage Wilson's piece was reloaded, and on the next order both wheeled and fired. Capt. Beane was unharmed, but Wil son s Tina was seen to drop from bis grasp, and it was thought he was seriously- hurt. A flesh wound in the left arm was found to be all the injury sustained.

A most atrocious Outrage was perpetrated in King George county, on Friday night last, intelligence of which hns just been received here. The store of F. W. Payne, at Rollin's Ford, in the lower end of the county, was robbed and burned, and the clerk, William Jett, was brutally mur dered, his body being thrown into the names and consumed with the building. On the following morning broken frag ments of the clerk's gun were found on the road, not fur from t'je scene of the double outrage, near a pool of blood, and with a portion of a human scalp, hair and blood on them. At this point it is sup posed the clork was murdered. A dis tinct trail of blood was found to the house, his bodr being dragged there and cast into the burning bouse. 1 he. bead, shoulder and one leg. were entirely con sumed, and the remaining portion of the body was crisped and roasted. From the indications in a newly ploughed field near by, where some of the plunder was discovered, it is believed that not less than four persons were concerned in this horrible outrage. A hat of one of the guilty parties was found, which may lead to the arrest if identified. Later infor mation states that three out of a pary of twelve negroes, said to have been impli cated in the affair, one of whom is re garded as a terrible desperado, have been arrested. The most intense excitement prevails in the neighborhood, and, as the jail is considered insecure, the parties mar be lynched at any moment if their guilt is established.
