A Tombs Character.
From New Yolk Letter to Troy Times.
Tho fcmnlo department of tho Tombs
has for nearly forty years been under
tho caro of a matron whoso executive
powers and general ability have ren
dered her of great valuo. I lora Foster,
indeed, is tho most interesting charac
ter connected with tho institution. Sho
bears her prison life remarkably com
ing in tho morning nndremaingallday,
and then departing to her homo at
night. This modo of life has been
maintained with hardly tho loss of a
week, und' now, notwithstanding her
ago, she is ttlll prompt in all her duties.
Flora has a kind, motherly aspoct, but
her decision of character is intense, and
her orders aro boyond appeal. On ono
occasion I noticed, whilo in her office, n
girl who had been arrested for pooket
picking, and who, as a favor, was al
lowed an Inlervlow with her pal. The
latter, whilo talking, uttered an oath,
whlijh, though spoken in a low tono,
was generally audlblo. "Leavo tho
room sir." was tho matron's command.
inil tho fellow knew ho must obey. Tho
girl began to expostulate in a rather im
pudent tone, and her reply was, "hush,
or I will lock you up." Thoimpudonco
continued hi rdly a minute longer, whon
tho quiet voice of tho raatron'gavo tho
command, "lock hor up." As this was
dono Flora turned to mo and said,
"That youngr woman Isa professional
pick-pocket, and should bo senttcState
Prison, but after being hero nvy
weeks sho will bo released and will fjU
on robbing tho public, whilo thoso poor
creatures that are driven hereby misery
will bo sent to Dlaokwcll's Island for
six montho," It is romarkablo that
aftor spondlng a lifetime among tho
outcasts of society the matron of the
Tombs should have suoh a homo look
of qulot aud domestlo character, Thero
must be a fountain of In-dwelling lovo
which oven suoh associations cannot de

The Law of Loloicd Migration.
Whnt is tho law of colored migi'a

tho same motives in chnnging localities
as nny other man. Socinl attraction,

rection of his movements. Chmato is.
no doubt, a consideration which co

tlio general result, n wnrm cllmnlo bo

tho drift is now to tho new lnnds.nnd

it is mainly to tho accessible States in
which employment Is to bo had. -Tho

that tho colored people nro very thor
