It is really ot le-s importance

The ordinary domestic labor ot
women is underrated by mo-t
men, both as regards its impor
tance and ns to the demand
made by "it upon the laborers.
It is moie ex.ictimr upon
mind and heait and body than
any masculine work, and as re
gards its importance, that will
bedmitted when otliercom
mon, universal, essential bless
ings, such as air and water and
sunshine are intelligently reeog
niz d and enjoyed. That time
will come, and speedily, too.
As to. the educating influence
of women, certainly too much
cannot be said 111 their behalf.
'Faith in all things high' comes
easy to the children of a noble
mother; and men, as brothers,
s hisbi nds and actors in the
world, are essentially indebted
to sisters to wives and to to the
queens of society for thcis suc
cess in their various walks of
lit'. .
There is a perceptible, differ
ence between the male and fe
male mind, and tho results of
feminine mental ai tion are as
lirgely nnd'ns truly represented
in human progress as are those
of the masculine intelligence.
Any number of men, seperatcd
from female influence, would
degenerate as much in mind and
morals as in manners. Woman
is rather an inspirer of action
than an actor, so tar as the great
field of the world is concerned.
All that is attributed to man in
literature, in ait, in seinca and
in industry is as much indebted
to womanly influence as the
plant is to the ground for the
seed from which it grows.
Comparing society to a beau
tiful temple, the Bible -compar3
woman to tho polished corner
stone. This figure sngge'ts the
mistake that men often make
regarding their own work,
wheather of mind or heart, as
more important than that of the
ce ltler sex supposing her work
to be incidental and theirs'alone
essential. This is a great error ;
woman's work is less obtrusive
hat no less essential than that
of men, and when women se
enres, as worker and as center
of iuflncnee, a wide and purer
respect and sympathy from men,
very great ad vintages will ac
crue to individuals, to the fami
ly and to society.
Col. Schlficiii-e. A Wash
ington special to the Galveston
News says Col. Schleichers rs
port on Mexican affairs will be
the mo3t exhaustive document
on the subject ever submitted to
Congres. Mr. Schleicher will
deal mostly with the causes of
these roubles and the means
nessesary for their removal. The
protection of American citizens
who go to Mexico for the pur
pose of engaging in trade will
be strongly urged.
SECKETAEY'Evarts has been re
tained by the receiver of the
bankrupt Erie Railway as at
torney against the English bond
holder, for which he gets a fee
of $25,000. Tc is notconsidered
to be jnstthe thing for a leading
cabinet officer to engage as coun
sel against the citizens of a friei
dly power. Mr. Evarts should
have resigned before engaging in
an undertaking that does not
comport with his high official
position. If he were a private
citzens his action would not be
subj.-ct to criticism.
The .Marshall Herald pub
lishes Gov. Hubbard's letter to
the editor of the Palestine Ad
vocate in his own defense ot the
charge ot bribery. It says:
"It reads to us, as a frank,
straight-forward statement, and
taken in connection with hi,
high character and unblemi-hcd
reputation, as conclusive. The
charge seemed to us so unrea
sonable that wo paid but little
attention to the matter."'

In Tennessee, a jury is said
once, to have played a game of
old sledge, to determine whether
or not the man on trial should
be banged, The game had pro
gresscd until it stood six and
six ; the deal was with the party
favoring acquittal ; the dealer
'flipped a jack," thus' winning
the game and saving the man's
life. The other day at Shaw
neetown, Illinois, a jury drew
straws to determine a man's
guilt ; they pulled and the man
was aeqnitted. The secret of
the jury room leaked out and a
new trial was granted.

ot which about one hilf was
silver. Of the silver 519,000,000
was shipped to China and India.
It is legarded as extremely un

There are large quantities of

Perhaps if they were to Use a
