The Grievances of Women. 1 was making an insignificant iournev in company with a married pair, be tween whom there was the most perfect understanding and good intelligence. The lady wore a pair of very shabby gloves, to which, by some accident or other attention was called. The husband was shocked and ashamed. " One would think," he said, "that I could not af ford to buy you gloves." . He had no wish to be Illiberal he was fond of his wife and proud of her and very willing to keep her in gloves and anvthimr else she wantod, but he had no feeling of niib iu uiu iiiaitur; 1111 geiiHtj mat ner position ought to be anything else than that oi absolute dependency. In this respect, however, the most liberal and the moBt generous men are often aa much at fault as the coarsest. They will not allow the importance of the second part in the universal duct. They win give iiuerauy anu praise freely, but they will not acknowledge " My wife has as much to do as I have. Without her work mine would not have half its value; we are partners in the toll of liv ing and she has earned the recompense of that toil as well as I." No one will say this, nor will the world acknowledge ik wnat uie woria aoes say wnen a woman outside of the bonds of mar riage claims to be allowed to work for her bread as she best can is, that she ought to go back to her proper sphere, which is home, but in that proper sphere and at her own individual work, all credit is taken from her, her exer tions are denied, her labor Is under valued. The only chance for her to get her work acknowledged is to do it very badly, when there will be an outcry, ilut when it is well done it is ignored, it is taken as a matter of course, it is never thought upon at all. Let this be contrasted with the reverse oase a case by no means unfreauent, though left out of account in all popular calcula tions. When it happens that the woman is tho richer of tho two partners in life, when the living comes from her side, or when she earns it, she is considered bound to assert no consciousness of the fact. It is a horror and shame to all spectators when she mattes any stand upon her monoyed superiority. That Bhe should let it be seen that she is the supporter of the household, or remind her husband that he is in any way in debted to her, is a piece of bad taste and bad fueling for which no blame is too severe. And the woman herself is the first to feel It so. But that which seems the depth of meanness and un- generosity In a woman is the natural ana every day attitude of the man. It is a point of honor on her part to ignore to the length of falsehood her hus band's inferiority to herself in this re spect; whereas the fact of her depen dence upon him is kent continually be fore her eyes and insisted upon, both soriously and jocularly, at every point of her caroer. t'raacrt Alagatine. A remarkable murder oase recently came before the Crlmiual Court at Uoauvais, in France. The manager of a private lunatio asylum at Villiers was accused of the murder of an inmate named Appert. The asylum oontains luualius of a quiet disposition, who are employed In agriculture, and Appert, who' was of a sullen temperament, but manngeable if treated mildly, refused to obey an overseer's order to prucoed to work. Estorut, the manager, coming up, began to abuse him, aud Appert was about to rush on Kstoret, wheu the latter snatched a cane from a Clip board. The cane, however, broke, and Appert struck Eatorot twice with a shovel, but was overpowered by the at tendants. He was then struck' by Es toret, and on his resisting an order to undress to undergo a oold bath, Eatoret administered a blow on his ann which fractured it. Alter the bath, Appert' arm was diessnd, and ho was kopt out of the daotor's sight for live days. One of the keepers urged that he should be sent to the lnlii mary.

Ominous slirns nf public dlsnppraval alone subdued this arrogant power Into a sullen sur render for the time beina; of a part of its de mands. The Hepubllcau party bus strnnjrly approved the stern ref usul of its ruprmentu tives to suffer the overthrow of atututes be lieved to be salutary and just. It bit always Insisted, and now insists, that the Government of the I'lilted States of America Is empowered and in duty bound to effectually' protect the elections denoted by the CoiiHtirminn as na tional. More than this, the Republican party holds as tho oardinul point In Its creed that the Government should by every means known to the Constitution protect all American citizens everywhere lu ihe full enjoyment of their civil and political rtg-hta, As a great part of Its work of reeon"iructlon, the Republican party gave the bullot to the emancipated slave aa bis right and defense. A large in crease in the number of members of Congress and of tho Klcctoral College from former slave-holding States was the immediate result. The history of recent years almunda In evi dence tht In many ways and In many places, especially where their number has been great enough to endanger rtcmovratlc control, the very men by whemo elevation to citizenship this Increase of representation was ef fected have been deburred and robbed of their voice and their Vote. It Is true that no State statute or Con stitution in so many words deules or abridges the exercise of their political rights, hut tv-dics employed lobar their way are no less effectual. It is a suggestive and startling thought that the Increased power derived from toe enfranchisement of a rnco now dented Its share In governing tho coun try, wielded by those who lately sought the ovortbmw of the Government, Is now the solo reliance to defeat the party which represented the sovereignty and nationality of the American people In tho greatest crisis of our history. Re publicans cherish none of the resentments which may have animated thom during thn actual conflict of arms. They long fur a full and real reconciliation between the sections which were needlessly and biinentabiy at strife.

Terrible Fate of a Number of Workmen in the Hudson River Tunnel The Walls in the Hudson River Tunnel The Walls suddenly Give Way, and Twenty Men Miserably Perish—Heroic Conduct of One of Their Number. A New York dispatch of tha SUt pivos the following account of the terri ble accident at theliudson KWer'funnol: At five o'clock this morning the caisson leading to the entrance of the Htidsou Klver Tunnel, eonstrucUng at Bixteenth itrset Jersey City, caved In, carrying with It an Im mense quantity of earth. Twenty-two men lost their lives, while eltfht bad almost a miraculous escape. The nijfht gun 7 of thirty men, including AsiHUiit-Buerlntendont Woodland and two firemen, entered the shaft at midnight, the hour for work for this gang being from twelve toeight o'clock. The depth of the shaft Is sixty-five feet, and, while most of the men were employed at the bottom of the shaft, about a third of the gang was engaged on the brick wall of an arch twenty live feet higher. It was the latter squad, all bricklayers, that escaped, except two. The main arch of the tunnel rune out from the shaft a distance of about thirty fret, when It opens Into two distinct arches that are to form the tunnel. Through some negligence of the workmen, It Is supposed, the air-lock was not properly adjusted, aud when the proc ess of shifting commenced, the brick wsll connecting the two arches gave way and water rushed Into the cave. Tho following is a list of the casualties: Peter Woodland. Assistant Superintendent; Frank A is sum, foreman; Thomas Burns, foreman; A. Kick son, Teter Felsher, Patrick Klmlu, Cbarlea Neilson, William -F. Bagley, Andrew Jacobsen, Bryan Sheridan. Charles Bvensson, O. Anderson, Frank Bark, of Ho boken: Mat McCarty, Patrick Brodcrick, Otto Besseilen, John Jensen. Patrick Collins and alike Broderlck. Ihe following la a complete list of the saved : Thomas Brady, B. MclioYern, A. J. Mollne, Thomas Cummiups, Christ Hansen, J. Vanuostrand, John Doyle and James Hayes. In addition to these, three men whose names are not known are missing, and the ofllclala say they must have perished. All whose names are given belonged to Jersey City except Bark. He resided in Uoboken. The Superintendent thinks the air In th tunnel must have escaped through the slit Thornse Van Nostrand, one of the reecneij men, says: "The main shaft Is sixty feel deep, and from the bottom of this shaft thi entrance to the tunnel Is effected througb 1 cylindrical barrel six feet In diameter and fourteen feet la length. . This is called an all lock, and serves to preserve the density ol the atmosphere of the tunnel, which, In turn, Is secured by the forcing of air through pipes from pumps. There is a door In each end ol the air-lock. They both open Inward. At each aide of the doors are round windows of thick glass, through which, from the outside of the air-locks, a view can be gained of the work and workmen inside the tunnel. There were twenty-eight men at work in the tunnel. They went In at twelve o'clock last night for the eightrbour shift I was at work near the east end of the lock, and In the west end of the tunnel. It was at about 4:80 o'clock that I heard the bolts snap, and the braces give way. At the same time I felt a rush of air in my face. I started back with seven of the men who were ear me and ran Into the lock. The air pressure crowded the door shut at the east end. At first It was blocked by a Joist which we pulled out, and then the door slammed to. Through the dead-eyes we could see the men Inside the tunnel. The water was feBt rush ing In. Peter Woodland, Assistant Superin tendent, stood at the door outside the lock, which was stationary. Il would not move with us without knocking out the dead-eyes. This would be fatal to the men outside, as the water would rush in and drown the men In aa Instant Woodland knew this, but stood at the door. His face was ghastly white, and be realized the horrible danger. lie said to ne: 'Tom, quick, bust tlte dead-eyes, and do what you can for us,' I knew it was death to us all If I did not, so I obeyed the order. As the glass broke the air rushed in, and the lock shot out in the main shaft, leav ing the men to drown, as the space occupied by the shaft filled with water in an Instant We were wholly stripped of our clothes when we crawled out 1 heard the rush of water at our back. It filled fast, but the ob structions kept it back long enough for us to escape from the main shaft It was all we I could do to save ourselves. Woodland was standing in water up to his waist when I saw I him. it was sure death, and I had to knock 1 out the desd eyes, as I told you. He knew as weu as 1 tnat it was au over with them. I shall never forget the look ou bis face or the sound of his voice as he, told us to save our selves, though the very act was to Insure his death." Another of the escaped workmen says: "After eight men bad escaped, one man. In trying to pass through the door leading from the air-lock Into the temporary chamber of the tunnel, was jammed in the doorway, and, despite the e .Torts of those ahead, could not be brought out, as the door closed upon him and held bim fast Peter Woodland, As sistant Superintendent, told the inea to try and get out, and, when the ninth man was fastened tu the doorway, called out to those who had escaped, telling them to hurry and try and get assistance to help the rest and himself who were lelt behind. He refused to leave himself, saying he would stay and make every effort to get the rest out. and, if it ft ere not possible, then those escaping must try to get the rest and himself out alive." The officers of the company. In exDlainlnr the accident, say the workmen, lu coming through the air-lock, must have exercised unusual carelessness, and, both doors of the air-lock being opened at the same time, the compressed air was allowed to escape. The compressed air serves a double purpose. nameiy, 10 aep tne water out anu 10 support the roof of the tunnel. &o, when it escaped, uib (:aLBBiroput wmb luevnuuie. The engineers and oftldals say that lt la Impossible for any of the imprisoned work men to be alive, as the water within the whole length of the tunnel is up to the roof, and even above it The laborers who are making the excavation weBt of the shaft will, however, not cease their labors to get at where the bodies are supposed to be but It ts rm possible to force any air Into the tunnel, as all which has been forced In so far has es caped through the shaft. In which It has made the water leap up two or three feet above the surface. It Is feared this afternoon that only seven men Instead of eight men have been saved, as one, named Thomas Cu minings, who was reported bv one of the work! nam on to hava escaped, is now said to be missing. 5 as In to he to a be as st Its aft ten Women Lawyers. Not every lady and centleman wh bas this season applaudod Miss Terry's Portia is aware that, about the date when the ' Merchant of Venice" may be sun nosed to have exhibited his gabardine on the Rial to, there actually existed great female lawyers in the neighboring city of Bologna. Prof. Caldexini, who held the Chair of Juris prudence in that University in 1360, and Prof. Novella, who occupied it in 1366, were not only celebrated for their legal lore and skill, but if we may trust their portraits, exceedingly beautfui women, with noble Greek profiles, dressed In a style whioh Miss Terry might have copied without disadvan tage. If women hereafter should again obtain entrance into the legal pro fession, it is not at all improbable that we may see something more of the keen ness of feminine wits engaged in disen tangling the knots of the law. Two ladies in Ireland, according to the Times Dublin correspondent, have just been conducting their own most intri cate cases in a manner which excited the surprise of the Master of the Holis, who even observed that he was "aston ished that the ladies had been able to put their case on paper so Intelligently and clearly without legal advice.'1 It other ladies should follow the example of the MiHses Fogarty, what a falling oil must ensue in solicitors1 bills.

Yesterday morning Kuthor Uleyen berg h, pastor nf the Kornun Cslhollc Church of the Holy Trinity, of this city, started out to ive his altar Intys their regular excursion, hey went on board the steam yacht Mamie, and were taken to Monroo, Mich. On their return, while coming up the Detroit River, at about ten o'clock last night, at a point Just below Granny Island Llghthouso, the yacht was met by the steamer Garland, of Detroit, having ol board the Mulders' Union and a large party of friends, and a collision took place, tho Garland literally running the steain yacht down and almost running over her. There were twenty-four persons on board the Mamie. Of these but eight were saved, the others going down In tJis deep, swift water, with no hope of tindints the bedlee jet for days. The Captain of the Garland, George Horn, was near the wheel-house with the wheels man at the time, ami, on being luLervlew'd by an Evening 2'vm reporter to-day, refused to talk. The wheelsman, H. W. Buff, aays he saw a light, which be took to be au anchor-light, and no red or green lights. When about fifty feet from the light he heard a whistle from the Mamie, answered It, and backed the engines. He called to Captain J-lorn to help on the. wheel. He thinks the Mamie must have tried to cross his bow. boats were low ered Immediately and life-preservers thrown overboard. There was a great lack of nerve and svstem In the matter of rescuing, so far the officers of the Garland were concerned. An nicer of the Garland, or one appearing be In authority, cursed those who were throwing over life-preservers, and made them stop It, but a negro employe of the boat seemed to have more nerve than any one else belonging to the boat, and set the work ol puttiug over llfe-pretervere agoing again. James Murtah, an attache of the tivmintf aAVuu, and a level-headed, courageous young man, says he was on the Garland, sitting at the bow, when the accident occurred. Ue ays the Garland was running stralKbt down the river on her course. The boats would have passed, but the yacht suddenly, when but a few feet from tbe Garland- put hei wheel over and shot across the bow of the Garland, was struck, and went down. There was but a moment to act, as the awful trag edy was over In a moment of time, almost. There were several instances of individual heroism of those on board of the Garland, conspicuous among them being that of John Quirk, a young nioldcr, who dove from the boat and; picked up two drowning boys. The accident Is the first of tho kind here many years, and thrills the city with horror. Of those on board the Mamie the following were drowned: Mrs. Fred. Martin, wife of engineer; Miss Mary Hahn, domestic of the iiarochtal school, Trinity Church: Miss Lizzie rturphy, housekeeper for Father Bleyenbereh; Thomas Kelly, sexton of the church; Jim Kelly, organ-blower ; Andrew Doran, a boy who was Invited to accompany the excursion; Thomas McLogan, another bov, missing, doubtless lost' Frank Solan. John Howe, David Barry, John Donovan, Willie Cuddy, David Cuddy, John Cosgrove, James Toomey, Joseph Monaghan, altar boys ranging from eleven fourteen years of age. Captain Hoffman, Engineer Martin, Father Dleyenbergh, Miss Lizzie Dusseau, of Monroe, and four others, were saved. In an Interview Father Bleyenhergh states that just prior to the collision most of the boys were in the oabin. He was sitting with the older members of tbe party, and they noticed the steamer coming down the river. The Garland and the Fortune (another steamer) seemed to him not very far apart, and coming very rapidly. " 1 do not know,' said, "I hardly daro assert It, and yet It seemed to me" and the father made a sig nificant pause, as though he thought they were racing. He went on to sav that he did not dream of the collision, in fact had Just said Miss uuseeau, who was sitting beside him, that It was a plcturesqae and exhlleraU Ing sight to see the steamer blow through tbe water on such a bright moon light night, when be eaw the Garland sudden ly loom up larger, and instantly divined with norror tnat a collision was imminent, ihe Mamie whistled, and soon after the Garland replied, but bore down directly on the fragile yacht, crushing it as if It bad been an egg- sneu, iainy cuiung it in two ammsnip. At the moment he had divined a collision was unavoidable he had shouted to his friends and children, "Cometothe front!" Come to the front 1" Borne of them did so. Miss Dusseau followed him, and atthe same time he felt the boat give way beneath him, and caught bold of rope on the Garland. The young lady did the same. Somebody on board the steamer pulled her aboard, and he climbed the rope bad hold of unaided. The four boys who were saved crawled out of the cabin windows and threw themselves into the water. Tbey were picked ue by the life-boat of the Gar land, which waa immediately lowered, but some who might have been saved were, be fears, drowned by the swell or run down by the Fortune, which plowed along very soon after. This was not the fault of the Fortune, they seemed to suppose that the Garland people, who bailed tbcin In alarm and anxiety, were cheering them. The father did not know bow the accident could have occurred all, as it was such brilliant moonlight that the smallest obiect could be discerned at a great distance. Persons on the Garland claim that the right-of-way belonged to her, as she was going down stream and was a larger boat. The Mamie, they say, went ' straight toward the Garland, signaling that she would pass to the left by a blast of the whistle, to which the Gar land responded. Netlhcrapparently changed course until the Mamie was almost uuder bow of the Garland, wheu the pilot of the Mamie threw hie wheel over, and she swung herself across the stream and pre sented a broadMde to the Garland. In this position the latter struck her squarely Just the pilot-house, crushing In her side and submerging her whole forward part. Be fore tbey struck the Garland stopped ber engine, but did not reverse. Bhe was appar ently going at nearly her full rate of speed at the moment of the collision. W hen the two vessels struck they c lung together for a mo ment or two, and the pilot of tbe Mamie and one or two of the passengers clambered on board tbe Garland with assistance. The Gar land then began to back, and the two vessels separated. The Mamie drifted down the stream, her forward part submerged or en tirely carried awav, but her stern out of wa ter. She sank entirely out of sight In about minutes In addition to the names of the lost already sent, it Is ascertained another boy aamed John Grensel waa also drowned. DETROIT, July 23. Bucked Over a Precipice. George Clement, of Oakland, a school teacher, narrowly escaped death, yes terday afternoon, while hunting in Hall1! Valley, about fourteen miles from town. He came across a fine buck and fired. The animal fell to the ground and lay if dead. Mr. Clement hastened up the body and was engaged in an in spection of its fine proportions when tbe animal suddenly sprang up and rushed him. Mr. Clement was taken un awares, but instead of retreating be grasped the antlers of the infuriated animal and for a few ni omenta held him arm's length like a vise. They stood facing each othor several momenta, when the hunter began to yield gradual ly to his most formidable antagonist. The buck finally seemed to be iufused with new life, and, with a desperate effort, hurled the hunter over a clitT. They both rolled down together to the bottom of the precipice, about eighty feet. Tbe buck was killed before he reached the botUin, and Mr. Clement hud his collar-bone broken and sus tained severe bruises. When Mr. Clem ent was able to arise he crawled up the cliff, and, after a great effort, managed reach his horse. Ho rode to the nearest babiiation, suffering great pain.
