Roth draw their wages punctually, however. 1 Tbo 13errienHpringa Journal (Tilden) Las a apaamof senso" and discourses as follows on the text of the refusal of the Democratic Convention to place Judge Cooloy'a name at the head of its State ticket : Tbe difficulty with that party in this State is, they persist in making efforts to elect a tickot wbou it is impossible to do so, and always act bullheaded when they have a chance to win. A notable example of this was in 1874, when they could have swept the State and elected a United States Senator. Tbe opposi tion tot irantism would have done this, if it bad been left alone. But it was encumbered with a lot of old superannuated wet nurses who controlled the Democratic Btate Conven tion at Kalamazoo." In 177G there wero 23 public libraries in tbe Vi colonies, containing 15,623 volumes ; in 1800 these had increased to iO libraries, with 80,000 volumes. In 1876 there were in the United States S.G8-2 public libraries, with 12.27C.9C1 volumes and 1,500,000 pamphlets, it is a noteworthy fact that of these libraries enly seven, containing 123,158 volumes, are in the quondam slaveholdiug states. Common school, church and Sunday school libraries are not in cluded in the above. Tbe census of 1870 shows that there were 10,000,000 volumes in the church and school libraries, and tbe partia returns gave 25,571,503 volumes in private libraries. It is safe to say that there are 50, 000,000 volumes in the public and private libra rios of tbe United States. Tbrt Htate Senate bas agreed to tbe bill ap-M-opriAtinu; ?75,000 for furnishing tho new Ca'pito A bill to create tbe office of .uporin Ittudaut .!

At a meeting of tbe " Detroit Home Associ ation," organized for the purpose of providing a borne for women aud girls temporality out of employment and needing friendly assistance, Mr. J. Ik II. Hratshaw, ueiug asked to address tho meeting, said : Tbe bebt government mortal man could make would be founded on virtue and intelligence,' in which view bo thought it unjust that a woman, a teacher of crcat truths, like the late Mrs. Sigouruey, for example, should be debarred from participating in tbe business of legisla tion, wbile a man, uttrrly ignorant, wholly wanting iu tbe moral eonse a drunkard, per haps wields a potent iniluence in the affairs of government. Let there be light in tbe mind of every parent presont. He did not pretend to le an Instructor, but be knew his own faults and follies and wantod to remedy them. The tuioducated woman baa just two ways of ob taining a livelihood. Tbe one is to marry for a home; the other be would not mention. Let parents know that they tdiould never raise a child w it bout givintrit tbe knowledge to inde pendently Bupport itself, whether it be son or daughter. Everybody has a pride in a self sustaining woman, who realizes that true inde pendence is to earn her own living, and to con trol her own resources. Want of self-sustaining power drives her to a questionable fate, to say tbe least. It would be k'h'rious if it could be said that tne women of this nation were so educated as to bo not only independent of husband, father or brother, but an actual help to them. He pictured the woes of the young woman lett without a home or friends, aud closed bv saving: If vou want pure women educate them to work. If you want pure men elevte and educate tho women. If you want a great nation elevate and educate tbe mothers. Judgo Koilly, of the Wayne Circuit Court, was tbe next spaakcx. He said that Michigan, ! with all her lioasted charities, was yet bebiud j tho limoa. There are many excellent institu i tioDd in the State for tbe reformation of boys I and mon. but when a young woman is brought .

If, on the other hand, a boy is convicted of a miuor o Hen bo, be may be transferred to tbe Kcform School lor a term of years, and thcro educated to support him- ; self by some honorable employment when bis j terra of sentence shall have expirod. Why tho people of Michigan aro so far behind the times in their treatment of erring girls, be could nor. say. but the fact remains thattbey aro disposed of" in a manner which sivors very strongly of brutality. A woman arrested on the siroet for sotno potty crime ib taken to a station-house I and imprisoned tor many hours in closo contact j with tbe worst criminal elements of the city. ' In tho morniug eho is dragged from her ceil, j receives the invariable sentence of rSO or six j niontliB, and is curted oft' to pnon with a wanon load of convicted criminals. No helping band, I no word of kindness is extended to her. Yet if the prisoner m a boy instead of a girl, the State opens its charitable arms aud heart, and j devotes all its onergieH to tho work of his ef ! fectual reformation. Tbo speaker was inclined ' to believe that women wero more severe in i their treatment of fallen womanhood than are j the men. if a man falls from grace bis fellow I men aro ready and witling to raiso him up. but I woman almost always turns her back upon the I erring of her own sex. upporte a young girl, : auxious to lind a better hie than that upon ! which she has just commenced, lool.s about ber for employment, now many housekeepers will givo her an opportunity to earn an honest liv ing ? Not one. They all act npon the theory that a woman once guilty of indiscretion is lost forever, and give ber tbo cold shoulder without anv compunctions of conscience. Hundreds of young women come here in search of emplov meut, with the hopo of bettering their condi J'VJISO.X.II,. I Mrs. Hayes' policy is attacked now. Tbe I millinara dlatika hr fmnAmr ' 1 President Hayes neither swears, uses tobac co, nor drinks intoxicating beverages. . Fnncess Louise, Marchioness of Lorne, is, it is reported, a firm believer in spiritualism. Dom Pedro was represented by bis daughter at tbe late opening of tbe Brazilian Parliament. Her hpeecn was brief and to tbe point. A. F. Fisher, better known as l oos Fuher, a Virginian billiardist of note, bas been ad judged ins ane. Too much tobacco did it. President Hayes' family coneists of bis wife, four sons and a daughter. One of bis son, Rutherford, Jr., and Grant's boy, Jesse, are classmates at Cornell, and intimate friends. Simon Cameron is said to put $100 in bis pocket tbe first of every month to give away to poor acquaintances and dependents. He is especially mindful of shiftless printers and country editors. Mrs. Myra Clark Gaines wishes woman could vote. She says: A woman's instincts are much better than a man s logic. She may make a fuss about little things, but in any great emergency she is always on the right side." Mrs. Patton, whose death occurred in Brook lyn, recently, sailed the ship Neptune's Car from Cape I lorn to San Francisco, twenty years ago. Her husband, tbe captain, was sick ; the crew mutinied ; she leveled a revolver at them, and made tbe men take the ship safe into harbor. Much is expected in social circles in Wash ington of Miss Schurz, the daughter of the new Secretary of tbe Interior department, as tbe will probably preside over ber father's household. She is an accomplished musician and fine linguist. There is a younger daughter, educated in Kuropo, and also bizlhy accom plished and very attractive. Six of Mrs. Hayes' old classmates happened to be living at Washington at the time of the inauguration, and possessed their school badg es. They bad the badge copied In buds and blossoms and sent it to the President's wife with their cards, and tbe next day Mrs. Hayes sent for ber old friends and held a society re union in tbe "White House parlors. Rev. W. II. Murray doesn't believe that Mr. Moody's inquiry meeting is any place for a boy. ne says 14 it is a hot-bed of Spiritualism," and adds : " Tbe boys who attend these meetings will. I suspect, be the worst boys in tbe city ten years from now, unless God intervenes to save them. They are being fed with such rich food that they will dislike tbe taste of it in ten years." Wendell Phillips says of George, the brother of Charles Sumner: "An Engliohman came to Rome and was anxious to know whether there was in the library of tbe Pope, the great library of tbe Vatican, a certain book. Tbe library is vast and there is no catalogue. The I gentleman went to the Italians. They referred bim to tbe private secretary of one of tbe cardinals, and tbe f ecretary answered : 'I don't know : but there is a young man in this city from Boston, and if the book is there be will know. They went to George Sumner and asked bim if taere was such a volume in tbe library. 'Yes: it is in tbe tenth alcove, the third shelf, the seventh book to tbe right as you enter. They went and found it. A walk ing catalogue of half a million of books!" ffl 4 II. For a short time only. For a short time only. For a short time only.

Jo bis retiring message, Governor Uagleydis connmd a follows, on this subject: "Tho amendmont increasing tbe salary of circuit judges was defeated by a small majority. 'Jtslo be regretted that with tbe submission of lhis amendment there bad not been some Acrempmying legislation equalizing and re ducinR th4 number of circuits.

If such women are to be saved, they must be morally educated, mutead of bemx still further morally degraded.

There are no women in tbe world who can be compared with tbo true American woman in all tbe sterling virtues, an J the plan which we now propose to adopt is tbe onlyoae by wbicb this standard of morality could be maintained, and the evils now existing be remedied. Certain customs aid prejudices cannot ba broken down, and we must accept the situation as it do stands. Iho citizens of Detroit and tbe State wid owe to tbe originat ors of this movement a debt of gratitude which time alone can pay, if they succeed in carrying out tbe principles of their organization ; and in tbe prosecution of the good work they will have the earnest sympatny ana prayers oi iu iru hearted men and womin. Tbe President read the following letter : Detroit, March 20 1877. Mm. John J.

If men who thro' intemperance (groos and wretched sometimes hT made themselves castaways, are received whn thev turn from thir evil ways with plau dits and rejoicing back into society (as they should be), why should not poor, friendless girls, who stand yet more than men in need of sbHter and encouragement, be ahomade tbe nubjects of social fcobcitnde and care?

D. BHUIl NK DI FITELD. Tho many friends of Miss Alta M. llulett, late of this city, will be pained to learn of ber sudden death, which occurred at San Diego, California, laet week of quick consumption. Miss llulett was a lawyer, and bad benn prac ticing in this city for two or three years. Dur ing that time she bas gained hosts of friends and an enviable practice, bbe was wholly en grossed in ber profession, and was possessed of groat ambition, an apparently tioe constitu tion, and indomitable energy. She bade fair to win a niche in tho temple cf fame. More than ibis, she was spurred on by th9 thought j that she was a pioLeer in anew track for: woman. Even those who felt that she was! working outside of woman's sphcro were com pelled to respect her earnestness, al ility, and worth. She possessed in an unusual degree Home of tbe characteristics which aro euppoaed to belong to tbe sterner sex, and they con tributed no donbt to ber success. She was fond of cool reasoning, and liked tbe contests of tLo forum, and sbe often sail she was not made to be married. Consumption was hereditary in ber family, and she bad reason to know wben she caught a severe cold in September last that tbe result might easily be fatal. JJut the could not make up ber mind to leave at once. Tbe disease progressed very rapidly, and within a month after tbe first attack she began to suffer from hemorrhage of tbo lungs. Even then she could hardly endure to leave here, and tears would come in ber eye at tbe thought of going away, even for a time, before she bad won tbe name she so much coveted. Finally, in November, tbe symptoms became so serious that Bhe left here and went to San Francicco, and from there to San Diego, where she diod. She knew her danger, anl bofore she left spoke of tbe probabibty of not being able to return, but ber grief seemed to bo less about ber health than lest some should misunderstand ber or think that a woman could not succeed as a lawyer. Though f bo diod so far from ber home, ber laet moments were soothed by tbe presence of her mother, stepfather, and sister. Miss llulett studied law in the office of Messrs. Sleeper & Whiton, of this city, and was admitted to tbe bar in 1871 at Mount Vernon. After she began to practice she bad an office with the same attorneys, and Mr. Sleeper, who had reason to know ber beet, says that ber death is tbe sad ending of a brilliant beginning Chicago Tribune.
