structing other and now buildings for
convicts. These buildings to be erected
in the penitentiary grounds. Surely there
should be some appropriation made for
these men, reckless, and in many cases
evil, as they are, still they are unfortunates.
The officials of the State have control over
them, and these officials ought to be em
powered to render life supportable to their
prisoners. Hardly is life supportable to
them, this is indicated by their unwhole
some looking, wan and meagre faces. The
prison is cold, damp and unhealthy; cer
tainly they deserve the discipline of con
finement, but humanity demands that life
be not gradually and surely sapped from
its possessors, while they undergo the just
discipline they require.
The Women’s Club, of New Orleans, is
aiding in many beautiful ways the reputa
tion for efficiency which women are acquir
ing everwhere. First, this woman’s club
is aiding and advancing forward the wo
men’s department at the Exposition. That
department for numerous reasons was be
hindhand, there was but littte money to
expend for it. However, women succeed
in so many enterprises without “appropri
ations” or sums “ being set aside” that it
seems to be the universal conclusion that
they will do so.
The Women’s Club, of New Orleans,
has had an earnest interest in the concerts,
lectures and various entertainments that
have been gotten up for the women’s de
partment at the Exposition, and to these
New Orleans’ ladies, with the lady Com
missioners from other States, we learn,
that the very handsome appearance of the
women’s department is largly due.
The inaugural ceremonies over, the new
President installed in the White House.
Now comes the discussion of his acts and
utterances in the past three or four days
during his inauguration and his reception
at the inauguration ball, his entrance into,
and settling of his effects in the national
mansion. These discussions and opinions
with the reports of the various journals of
the country, form a great part of the pres
ent week’s reading. One of these journals
thinks our new President’s inaugural ad-
dress “dignified and forcible,” one affirms
that Mr. Cleveland stated his views “with
that impressive moral tone which we have
become accustomed to in his public utter
utterances, expressing also his sense of re
sponsibility, &c. &c.” Another journal,
and we are somewhat habituated to the
bitter utterances of this journal, so we
quote them not as surprising, but as an ex
ample of opposition, and this is the opinion
advanced: “The appointment of two of
the members of his cabinet being part of a
great conspiracy against free government.”
Has there been a more peaceful time since
our great national quarrel, than there seems
now to exist in all quarters of the land?
The new President, born in the north,
reared, educated, and having been always a
citizen of that prosperous quarter of the
country. This President, taking his seat,
has the wisdom to recognize that there
must be no cankerous sore spots, in the
healthy whole of the broad country
he presides over, selects, amid the
greater number of his northern advi
sers and counsellors, two from the
south. The miseries of dissension and dis
union over; and all cause for such dissen
aion and disunion over; the south, from her
adversity and mourning, lifts her head
wiser, calmer, and more strong since her
trial. She is yet a power, she is yet forci
ble. With foreseeing sagacity, Mr. Cleve
land recognizes this fact, and though com
pared with the north, the southern portion
of the land is in the minority; in the minor
ity particularly, as to wealth, as to pro
gress, as to manufacturers, still, being in
the minority, she is recuperative and able;
these are qualities of value in the forward
march of a great country, and this our
President has recognized in the very ju
dicious choice of his council, each to take
part as advisor through his administration
of affairs for the whole land he represents.
At the formal dedication of the Washing
ton monument which has formed one of
events of the last few weeks, Mr. Daniel’s
whose oration has been much observed and
admired, speaks in vivid words of Washing
ton the youth. We believe that there exists
many such strong and stirring youths to
day. May the Ladies’ Journal urge
them to look forward, and upward. They
