for a season, the men assembled for the pur
pose, whether generally or by delegates,
leaving the woman at ?. home attending to
their proper business and this because of
a mutual and general intuition that such
was the Divine. Order, dictated by the high-
est good of the entire human family. , , I
) Fourth, I hold that the appointed sphere
of man is broader, not higher, than that of
woman that the household is her kingdom,
within which her influence should be para
mount, and her decisions have the force of
law. Of course, a true wife! will consult her
husband, on all matters of importance, and
will evince great deference to 7-. his wishes,
tastes, feelings, aversions ; just asr a true hus
band will evince like deference to those of
his wife; but nature has assigned to each a
distinct, definite sphere, and the happiness
of both, the due developement and well-be
ing of their children, the comfort and en-
joyment of their guests, dictate that each
should recognize the other's precedence with
in the proper radius of his or her dominion.
Fifth I affirm the right of woman to do
whatever she can do well, even though her
ability be exceptional, and not common to
her sex, and I honor the wife or daughter
who, having a crippled or bed-ridden hus
band or father cast fcupon her ; for support,
tills with her own nanas tne : iarm or gar
den whence she derives his and her subsis
tence. But even in that casej I would have
her work by herself or with companions ! of
her own sex, so far as possible. The pro
miscuous employment of men and women in
shop or field has hitherto led to - gross ir
regularities and corruptions, and I do not
believe the time near at hand when such
commingling may confidently be expected
not to result in such lamentable conse
quences. Sixth, As to teaching one of the few pur
suits wherein men and Tomen may be
properly associated I deem j it best that,
above the age of fifteen, girls should be in
structed by women, boys by men, and that
girls should acquire a knowledge of and
skill in any trade or handicraft whereby
they may earh an honest, useful livelihood ;
and I consider type setting one to which
they are especially adapted;! but if, having
acquired this or any other, they are to so
licit work from printery to printcry and fake
their places in the composing room indis
criminately with men, I am sure the moral
evils of such commingling will greatly out
weigh any pecuniary advantages that may
be fairly expected irom it.
Seventh, As to government : I heartily
wish the women of our country, and of each
state, would choose their wisest and best
td assemble as delegates, consider the needs
and wrongs of their j sex, arid memorialize
Congress and their respective legislatures
for the removal of those wrongs. 1 am con
fident that such delegates, fairly chosen by
in the present generation, that I speak so
plainly as I do. We are a fearfully misedu
cated people, and the case is worse with our
girls than with our boys. Within i the
sphere of my observation, not one girl in ten
is really trained or training to earn her own
livlihood in any capacity : the greater num-,
her ftppm vftonfilv to express that theviwill
marry for a position and rear children for will defeat the $eT8wntoTS. Charleston He

will be profoundly stirred, and the result
cannot fail fco be wholesome. "Woman is ;
insisting that her share of the world's work
be allotted and secured to her, and the de
mand however wisely urged or mistakenly
directed, is substantially just. What she,
tar more than man, needs to realize, is that
no useful work is degrading though much
may be rejected as unsuited to her sex or
strength. There is worfc enougn tuat sne

qualified for, and rendered willing to under

educated girls shall fancy teaching, the only
established pursuit that they can follow
without disgrace, many of them must live
miserably, and be driven by want to shame ;
but let them awake to a realizing sense of
the true dignity of labor, the essential no

proper recompense thereof, and woman pe

The Knavery of Persecution.
No white man in South Carolina is free.
Every one is absolutely enslaved in thought
and action ; or, daring to think and aet for
himself is malignantly persecuted in busi
ness and proscribed in society. Many men
are incapable of reason, or independence.
Such obey without question, those among
us who assume to order opinion and con
trol action. These know that they are pet couragiDg work
moved in from Massachusetts, there was not
a carpeted room. 1 Of this the minister was
not aware, or perhaps he would, have hesi
tated at the idda of indulging in such an un
wonted article ofluury " hu
One day a young farmer, having occasion
to visit the minister! was shown by the min
ister's daughter into the Ctbes$ room."
When the minister came aown to see
him, he found bird setting On a chair on the
doorsill, with his legs L' extending out into
the entry. i j ; "
Amazed and: i somewhat puzzled at this
unexpected sight, Mr. M. asked him why he
didn't go into the pallor. y I

blanket by treading on it I"- , .

Buying Gloves in Gibraltar.
A very handsome iyoung lady in a store
offered me a pair of plue gloves. I did not
want blue, but sh6 baid they would look
very pretty on a hand like mine, j The re
mark touched me tenderly. I glanced fur
tively at my hand, arid somehow it seemed
rather a comely merhber. I tried a glove
on my left, and blushed a little. Manifestly
the size was too small forme. But I felt
gratified when she said :
"Oh. it is iustnght!r'--vet I Knew it was
no such thing. 1
I tugged at it dilligently, but it was dis
able said :
ed; "Ah, poor Creed, are you gone!"
"Yes,"- said Matthew very , composedly,
and you shall instantly pack after him ; at
the same time making a home thrust quite
had just 1 throuffh his bod v. which threw him to the
ground. This was the more remarkable, as
he was never in his lite, either before lor
after, known to have aimed at a pun.
The number of wounds received by the
vanquished parties were very great and
what seems almost ; miraculous, their oppo
nents were untouched.
The surgeons, j seeing the desperate state
of their patients, would not suffer them to
be removed out of the room where they
fought, and had beds immediately convey
ed into it, in which they lay many hours in
a state of insensibility. When they came
to themselves, and saw whero they were,
Pack in a feeble voice, said to his compan
ion , :-' ' I '
"Creed, I think we are the conquerors,
for we have kept the field of battle."
For a long time they were despaired ot :
but to the astonishment of every one, they
both recovered. When they were able to
see company, Matthew and nis iriend at
tended them daily, and a close intimacy af
terward ensued, as they found them ot pro
bity. except in his Quixotic idea ot duel
ing, whereof they were now perfectly cured.
