had taken advantage of the College

Prof. Grumbling in the mean time has
become quite a traveller, visiting Phila

a correspondent of the Galveston Ifcics
writing from LaUrango, Fayette coun
ty, under dato of July 11, gives tho fol
lowing account of the recent di8u.str.ous
lloods in that region :
" For u week past tho Colorado nvor
has been very high, rend «ring it «litll
cult and very dangerous to cross oven in
a wkiti', thus outling oil' nearly all com
munication with Bastrop and Austin,
tho stag« 1 » and mails being hemmed up
und unable to got out.
"Thursday night tho good people of
La Grange wont to their bods, leaving
tho river still somo ton or fifteen foot
within its bank», and at day it was
found to have risen seven feet, and at
nine o'clock it broko over its banks
ftbove and below, thus throwing two
immense tidos of water upon the town.
At eleven o'clock the waters had met in
ihe Hats, or valleys, betwoen town and
the south-west side, and
.as swolling vory rapidly. At twelve
'«dock it found its lcvol, and having
driven all the inhabitants out of tho
w«*storn portion of the town, it began
turning over the small houses and Hunt
ing them away toward the gulf. At one
«/« lock it was within a block of the pub
lic square, and rising so fast that it
drovo tho crowd back from its edge.
"Great crowds of women and cliil
dren Ktood at tho water's edge, and saw
their homes tilled by tho Hood, and
many of them sWepfc dwny or turned
o>or where they stood, while tho crash
of furniture amt smashing of doors
windows told of tho ruin that was going
on within. Mon rushed back and forth
ilics or asking for assistance to tie a
houso already swimming, or claiming
ihe idle lookers on t«> move
their furniture from tlioso not yet inun
"Wagons loaded with furniture rat-*
tied to und fro, somo to tho high ground
with their confused mass of household
wares, and others to take off the re
mniniug wares, Bvforô three o'clock
un» ptroi» square was r if irot of wntor.
Store doors were thrown open and mer
chants and clerks strove to save their
goods, or piling them in tlieir second
stories and on the counters ; while every
man and everything available Was put
into requisition to save tho women and
children from the torrent which was
now rushing over three fourths of the
town. A boat was made ol' til» boards
of houses and tilled with strong oarsmen,
who went through tho streets and yards
searching lor those who needed help.
There was no parly distinction ; friend
and foe were allied together to meet the
common enemy.

Woman Sufl'rago.
vomen of New
The strong-minded
York, in convention at Saratoga, adopt
ed the following platform :
Tho convention ot delegates from the
Stato of Now York, assembled, without
distinction of sect or party, in pursu
ance of a call upon all persons in luvor
of demanding suffrage for the women of
the nation and the passage of an amend
ment to the Constitution of tho United
States, by which the ballot can bo se
cured to them, resolve as follows :
Resolved , That tho question of woman
suffrage is tho great moral and political
question of tho day, and we demand the
ballot for women, because the laws of
justice precede tho laws of states, and
the rights of humanity underlie the
rights of government.
Resolved , That an governments are in
stituted for the maintenance of tho prin
ciples of justice, and as every human
being can do better for himself than
another for him, tho right of evory hu
man being to »bare in tho government
under which he byes should be recog
nized by that government.
Resolved, That we claim for woman
the inherent right to share in the gov
ernment of any country of which she is
a citizen, by virtue of her existence
human being and bur natural capacity
for self government ; that while resting
tho responsibility of woman's present
political disability upon man, wo deny
his right to define woman's sphere ; that
as we deny the right of one class of men
to define the rights and duties of anoth
er class of men, so do wo as emphatical
ly deny tho rigid of one sex to define the
rights and duties of another sex.
Resolved , That wo gladly recognize
the advancement of our just principles,
îtion of the Irish lie
as shown by the
publican National Convention recently
held in Washington and Chicago, in
which they demanded that suffrage
should be extended to all not guilty of
crime, irrespective of color, race, or
Resolved, That we also rejoico at tho
course of tlio Metlioilist Episcopal
Church of the United States, recogniz
ing as a Kt«*p in tho true direction their
recent action in admitting women of
that church to veto on lay delegation.
Resolved t Tlmt, in recognitlofi «ml
furtherance of tho principles of justice,
tho Constitution of tlio United States
should be so aineuded as to secure the
right of surtrago to tho women of the
nation, on tlij* »aine terms that it is held
by tlio men ortho nation.
Resolved, That we invite tlio co-opera
tion of every urm and woman, no mat
ter liow differing as «o party politics,
creed, color or nationality, in Svcuring
such an amendment.
