Female Suffrage—Views of Mark
I have read the Ion ir list of ladv
petitioners in fator of female suf
frage, and aa husband and a father
i want to protest against the whole
business. It will never do to al
low women to vote. It will narer
do to allow; them to hold office.r--
You know, and I know, that if they
were granted these Drivileces there
would be no more peace on earth,
They would swamp. t the country
with debt. They like to hold office
too well. Thev like to bo Mrsj
President Smith of the Dorcas So
ciety, or Mrt. Secretary-Jones of
tha Hindoo Aid Association, or
Mre. Treasurer of something orotln
er. They are fond of the distinc
tion of the thing; you know ;.: they
revel in, tfte. sweet jihgle of . the ti.
tie. 1 hey are always Jetting up
Buncuiieu vwcoiueaerations of all
kinds, and. then running for Presi
dent of them. , ;They are even so
fond of office that they, are willing
to serve without pay. Bub you al
low them to, vote, and to go to the
Legislature once, and then see how
it will be. They, will go to work
and start a thousand more societies,
and cram them full of salaried offi
ces, , Ypu wiH see a state of things
then that will 6tir your feelings to
the bottom of your pockets. The
first fee bill would exasperate you
some. Instead of the usual sched
ule for Judges, State Printer, Su
pie;ne Court clerks, etc., the list
would run something like this: .: .
You know what a state of, anar-;
chy and social chaos that fee bill
would create. Every woman in the
Commonwealth of Missouri would
let eo everv thinff and run for State
Milliner.'" And instead of ventilat
ins each other's Dolitical anteced
ents, as men do. thev would bo
straight after each other's private
moral character. (I know them
they are all like my wife.) Before
the canvass was three days old, it
would be an established Dronosi-
tion that every woman in the btate
was no better man she ought to
be." Only think hbw it would lac
erate me to have an opposition
candidate sav that about mv wifei.
That is the idea, von know having
other people say these hard things.
xs ow, i Know mat my wile isn't any
better than she ouerht to be. noor
devil in fact, in matters of ortho
dox ' doctrine, 6he is particularly
shaky but still. I would not . like
these things aired in a political
contest1, I. don t really suppose
that that woman will stand anv
m6re show hereafter thanhowev
er, she may improve she may ev
ert become a beacon lic-ht for t.riA
saving of others: but if ; she does,
sne wuj Durn ramer aim, ana sne
will 'flicker a cood deal. too. . Rnr..
as I was saying, a female political
canvass would ' be an outiageous
thingj i : ;!;,..
Think of the torchlight proces
sions that would distress our eves.
Think of the curious legends on
some of the transparencies:

a -stranger went into the
churchyardof a pretty village, he
beheld . tbf ee children at a newly
ae gra.y3, v. A boyv' about : ten
years- of age, was busily engaged
in blacinfi nlahts of turf nLnnt ir
while a girl, whpj appeared a year
or two younger, held in her apron
a few roots of wild flowers. , The
third child, still younger, was sit
ting on the grass, watching with
thoughtful look the movements of
the, other two. The girl soon be
gan planting some of her wild flow
ers around the head of the grave,
When the stranger addressed them.
'Whose grave, is this, children,
about which you are so busily en
gaged?" 'Mother's grave, sir,' said the boy
And did your father send you to
place these flowers around your
mother's grave?' ,
'No. sir. father lies here too. and
little Willie and sister Jane.'
When did they die?'
Mother was buried a fortnight
yesterday, sir, but father died last
winter; they all lie here
1 Then who told you to do this?'
'Nobody sir,' replied the girl.
'Then why do you do it?'
They appeared ' at a loss fur an
answer, but the stranger looked so
kindly at them . that at length the
eldest replied,' as the tears started
, 'Oh, we love them, sir!'.
Then you put these grass lurfts
and wild flowers where your par
ents lie because you love them ?'
'Yes, sir, they all eagerly repled.
What can be more beautiful than
such an exhibition as children hon
oring deceased parents! Never
forget the dear parents who loved
and cherished you in your infant
days. But remember their paren
tal kindness. Honor their memo
ry, by doing those things which
you knew would please them were
they now alive, by. a particular re
gard to their dying commands, and
carrying on plans of usefulness.
The man who can make his own
fire, black his own boots, carry his
own wood, hoe his own garden, pay
his own debts, and live without
wine and tobacco; need ask no fa

There arrived here yesterday
morning, as we learn, , one of the'
most singular animals, probably,
that ever was brought into the
world. It has but one body and

apparently about six months old,
and is quite healthy. Mr. Roebel,

will remain to-day and perhaps to
morrow, 'Itis certainly the most
singular 'phenomenon1 the: 'world:
