Yet when the propriety ot it is questioned

Woman's Mission t
Near six thousand years ago Ood created
man and placed him in the garden of Par
adise. We can have but limited concep
linn's of ii beauty, yet all that is beauti
ful iii Nature was here, all that gorgeous
fancy can depict, yet Adam with a hu
man heart yearning for companionship
could not be happy alone. The brute
creation could have no sympathy with
him and there was no voice to blend with
litst in his matin hymn of praise to ins
Maker. We know not how long he re
mained sole occupant of Eden, or how
many sun's had run their course, when
onejdewy "bright morning he was awaken,
by arliiig birds, from- slumber- upon a
flowery bank, mayhap near Euphrates'
sparkling waters and fSuiid by bis side a
beautiful creatnre fashioned as himself.
It may be his first glad thought was that
a bright angel had left the shing courts of
Heaven to be his companion. Hut no tliis
radiant being was a woman. Tall, slight,
graceful and queenful was her torm, with
face so fair, very fair azure blue eyes
and massj golden cnrls that were thrown
back from a broad . alabaster brosr by
small faultless hands, partly shading tbc
rounded cheek, that rivaled the roses J
blooming around her, and the curling red
lips were turned lo the sweetness of sing-
n otrns in tne doughs aoove ner. Adam
was entraiicrd by this vision of beauty and
was as anient lover as many since who
l , i : . i - ,
1 followed where butler-fly Eve
led, ainid flowers, shrubbery and tangled
vinis and Milton tells ns the placid" waters
of a lake too soou made known Eve's
charms to herself. But vanity was no
our mother Eve's great fault if in the main
it did lead to her questioning her Own
mind the propriety of ber hnsband enter
ing into a compact, impajring conditions,
by which they were to remain in this
blissful state but it was her aspirings af
ter greatness. In other words meddling
iu affairs not her own, ji t us oursuffraic
women all do, and would have done lu
Eve's place. Listening lo false counsel
Adam violated his oath of obedience, lost
jars disc, and bequenilifl heritage of
toil, suffering ftiid tieaih In maukiitd.
So here is ou faithful ft cord u great and

with its strong temptations, in short of al
lowing ber to take upon Iter slight shoul
ders the burden of public affairs.
Falling from bis first estate has doomed
man to labor, and nature has Ittcd him
and giton him strength and hardihood.
The Libit- tells iis wotiiau was given for a
help meet, to man, and surely sbo must
not forget ber destiny, but 1st us see
wherci.t this belp must consist.
Until the comingof our Saviour, soman
was a mere slave and if she possessad
beauty, was a mere toy. Cbristikiiity has
elevated her and made known kcr true na
ture and no where is she appreciated, save
in a christian land. The Mchorninedan
even denies woman a soul, and the East
ern nations look upon ber as entirely an
inferior being bury her in the walls of a
llarcm and if she at all emerge from this
living tomb, jealously veil her (harms and
never think of confiding in ber honor.
She is here caressed at will, disposed of
at pleasure, ca rice, or greed of gold.
And many of these nalious are very an
cient and boost of their great civilisation.
Among the savage tribea woman is found
invariably a slave. The Indian's dusky
bride was wont to bew the logs and rear
his rode but, plant bis maise make his
6res and cook his meals. We hope it
was all done with cheerful heart and wil
ling band, here ignorance was bliss. It
ia well though nor woman's right's women
did not live here, ere Columbus touched
these shores. The wigwam would have
become too hot for the red man. The In
dian's squaw rarely made pretentions to
beauty can flowers bloom without sir,
light or sunshine t The Indian's home
possessed not the comforts of the deer he
hunted in the chase, or of the bear he
baited, or traced to the beachen tree.
Man's instinct should teach him, and does,
if he heeds it not, thai woraon was not
trtven htm. to tabor tn Ws neMa. drive his
oien, or black his boots, and if compelled
to do tbis, soon the bentiiy that was given
to gladden his heart will fade nnd the love
that should cheer his soul will be turned
Look at woman ! She is fairer, frailer
than man. instead of str-neth 000 has
narrowing effect upon the blind, yet what
ever tends to real improvement ot her per
sonal charms should not be neglected.
But it must ever be re me in ben-1 that she
was not sent merely into the world to be
looked at and admired, to dress and lead
an aimless life. Neither should she ever
fancy she is too angelic tb descend to the
common realities of life and prove bcrselt
capable of becoming man's help-meet.
Woman it is feared who consider them
selves angels on earth will rarely fii them
selves for angels in Heaven. But frivolity
and dissipation in dress is too often thrust
at nnr women of the present day. We
claim iii behalf of our sex, that there has
been no degeucratiou in this respect and
to be convinced that there is not as much
to condemn in our present modes as in thp
past we need but glanec at the styles in
the days of CharlessTI of England, Louis
the Xi V of Fi ance, or rfnr limored grand
mothers of the Revolution. And the'wits
of England two bnndred years ago be

be "wits of the present Bge, fin-getting

were said as many smart things against

tle flaxen haired girl of three summers,
whose tongue has scarce1 forgotten the
lisping pruttlo of infancy, is so happy over
her pretty doll, handling it not as other
toys, but with tcuderest care and counts
not the winged hours at pluy. Here, is
the future patient mother. Ood has so
clearly definedjhis instinct, and has given
patience to cherish, control and govern
the wayward nafnre of the young and
tender. From birth till maturity, man-
kfad is placed under the iuiisdiciion of
r asm it. '1 be mother inai-td wnles the

And tlo we not know homes the revere

to history's page and we find great wo
men woman whose own hand has wove
aud her brow unblushingly Worn laurels
of unfading leaves woman's intellect that
will fairly cope with man's ; yet these
women never threw aside the garb of
modesty, never sought mere notoriety.
They were in pursuit of a substance rath
er than a shadow. The world is not so
bias as to withold woman's praise when
it is justly due. The doors of literature
and art are thrown wide, in flowery fields
she may revel. Are not some of our most
popular writers women! The canvaaa

voice loses Its swrwineBS m the well-possessed
orator or the pedantic lecturer.
Bonaparte said the first acclamations of
the French people were as sweet to his
ears as the voice of Josephine.
But has not true womanhood been ad
mired in all ages and now in jealousy and
blindness will she with rude bands tear
from her nature all its sweet graces an
nihilate the true dignity in womanhood.
Abot three hundred ears ago England's
scepter was swayed by a powerful hand
and that hand was a womau's. Elizabeth
was a mighty queen, and probably at no
day before or since was Britain's prosper
ity greater. Our haughty queen was
feared by foe and distrusted by friends,
flattered by presuming aspiring favorites,
but there was not a single heart that real
ly loved her. There was much in the
strong minded qneen to admire, positively
nothing iu tbe bigoted unamiablc woman
to love. Her unfortunate and final vic
tim, beautiful Mary of ScoMaud was less
a queen, more a true woman. With some
of woman's frailty, her loveliness of char
acter, her heart of mercy and tenderness
has commended her to commiseation and
many an eye l as been moistened with
pity's tears in reviewing her life. To this
day, Holy wood palace is visited yearly by
thousands of cuiions, sympathetic travel
ers the scene of her trials and Bufferings,
where for eighteen years she was the close
prisoner of cruel Elizabeth, as her lovely
form drooped and her pale, patient face
grew lovelier and her heart was crushed.
Surely there is a yearning in the depths
nf woman's soul tor love. The affection
she may be enabled to inspire is her
strength it is her supreme power. Then
let her not mistake her mission ! Let the
instincts of her heart be strengthened, her
affections chastened, her intellect devel
oped, her mind enriched by knowledge,
and her snnl be made pure--and nevor be
forgetful of woman s dignity aud the true
sphere ot woman s action. ,

Tha terrors of tbe (rave, the fear ot
death, and the terrible calamity of being
buri-d alive, have sbU Us forcibly pic
tared tfroro than Hiaaiptrwny picture,
however drawn, ran at fati to leave the im
preesiou produced of either that ia obtain
ed bv exDerience : and in no case can any
one be so alive to tbeae terrors and fears
aa the one who, being considered dead, is
treated as such. For some time past a
(serman. known bv the name of Frede
rick, worked in a dining-saloen on First
street as waiter. His constitution waa
weak, and the confinement necessarily at
tending his employment affected him very
much. Ho consulted some physicians,
who pronounced him consumptive, and
advised him to give up his employment,
and put himself under the care of a phy
sician or go to the hospital. He decided
on adopting the latter course, and some
ahart time ago went to one of our hospit
als. His condition rather grew worse dai
ly, and lately he was confined to bed, and
little hopes entertained of his recovery.
About a week ago he grew still worse.
He was visited in the morning by the
tbyaician, who considered his recovery
opeless. During tbe day he still grew
weaker, and when the doctor paid his
evening visit he found him pulseless, aud
pronotiuced life extinct. The body was
iininedia ely removed and placed in the
deadbonse attached to the hospital It
was deposited in a case where two other
bodies had already been placed, and be
tween tbem. The cover waa put on, and
the keeper of the dead-house retired for
tbe night. About midnight a loud scream
ing aud yelling of the most unearthly
character waa heard in the dead-house.
The watchers heard it, and the party who
bad ehanre of this portion of the building
heard it also. A silent sense of fear, of
terror the most terrifying, stole over them
all, and they concluded that a scene waa
being acted similar, lo that witnessed by
Tan O'Shanter at Kerkalloway where be
saw "warlooks and witches in a dance."
The kerper of the dead-twoae waa auuglrt
after, but being aware of what he was re
quired. to do; he sought concealment, pre
ferring to let tbe ghosts fight it oat among
themselves, rather thaji attempt to be
come peace-maker. The yells and shouts
in tbe dead-house Btill continued, while
the door received an occasional bang, ac
companied by the demands : "Open the
door ; let me out." At last the keeper
waa prevailed upon to proceed to the
dead-house and open the door, when the
ghostly form of tbe German, whose life
had been a few hours previously pro
nounced extinct, and who had been dress
cd in the robes of the dead, stood before
him. The keeper fainted outright, while
the terrified German rushed headlong
through the long halls and corridors ti
the building, spreading terror and dismay
as he went. Some more courageous than
the rest caught aud arrested him in bis
frantic career, but the next instant the
poor German fell on the floor in a swoon.
The physician was at once sent for, and
restoratives used by which he was restor
ed to consciousness, and, although he is
still weak and under treatment in the
hospital, his recovery is considered cer
tain and only a matter of time. He now
walks about pretty stoutly, and is per
mined to go outside the hospital limits.
He visited his late enipwjyor a few days
ago, and related to him the fact that, hsv
iug got into a trance, it was thought he
was dead, and he was removed to the
dead'house. now ha felt when he re
turned to consciousness, we give aa he
told it himself : "Vel, ven I got sick and
vas ih bed dat day, the Doctor came to
me and said 1 was very sick. He vent
avay, and after he vent I fell asleep. I
knew nothing more till I voke in de
night, and there vaa no light. I put out
my hand, and I could get ho bed-clothes,
for I vaa cold. I du put my baud to
vons side to try for the bqajudothes, mid,
och. my Gott, vatfalTtiiili'saTfot jy, a

sure. 1 roared mid all the power I had,
and. vaa going away by the other side, vin
sure, I put my hand on another. Then
1 roared, a ml called, and cried out nil I
could, and ven I was petting, up my head
struck a board that was covering me.
Oh. said L vat does this mean ? Vere I
am? Am I ded! And 1 roared and
bawled, and threw off the cover and jump
ed about aa if I vas mad. And I knock
ed at the door vid my hands and feet, but
nobody would oien it for me, and I
thought I vas dedmyself. I vas not sure.
I had the ded man's dress on me. - At
las the door opened, and ven 1 looked-at
the man vat opened it he fell down mid
fear, and I ran till 1 was caught Then
I niiuted, and ven I come lo mi self I

Many causes concur to make federal af

and even to make us unwilling to discuss
or to form opinion on subjects which are
of universal importance and should excite
a lively interest. First among these cau
ses lies our conviction that wa have
enough to do in ensuring our own materi

each man to hie own particular business.
Hut hardly second iu importance la tha
fact that we are represented at Washing

ers, interlopers, accidental men, in short
carpet-baggers, who rarely possess abili
ty or honesty, and never combine both
qualities. Hence it ia not wonderful,
however deplorable it may be, to find that
the voice of the Sonth is not heard in
Congress, whether on questions affecting
us alone, or on those larger subjects, which
appeal to tbe nation i and that on both

whose views are endorsed by Hancock,
Sherman and all the officers best ac
quainted with the Plains, long ago recom
mended as the only efficacious plan, that
of placing the Indians on reservations, if
necessary feeding them there, observing
strictly oar treaties and making no war
but upon those who can by no other
means be put or retained upon the reser
vations. He demonstrated that this wss
far the cheapest plan, and the only feasi
ble one, of preserving ourronticrs from
outrage without resorting to the extermi
nation of the Indians The plan is cheap

not provide against the encroachment! of

I he men who form the advance guard
of our march into the wilderness, restless,
reckless, eager, unscrupulous and violent,
possess in high degree the best qualities
which distinguish an advancing, a domi

them the worst of those vices which make
turbid tbe waves where meet tbe tides of
barbarous and of civilized society.
The whole history of the United States'
Indian policy shows one idea protection
of the settler against the Indian. It has
cost us many and valuable lives, and trea

of the Indian against the settler t
It is by this course that Brigham
Young Aunts the savages bis friands, by
this rule that Penn found Peace and pros
perity ; by it the Jesuit mission has stood
safe in French and Spanish America, and
by it our cousins of British America have
gained and still preserve the friendship,
faithful, cheap aud valuable, of the many
tribes of the New Dominion and of tbe
half breeds of the Saskatchewan.
If we place the Indian on the reserva
tion wa, must not only reserve his laud
frTr liiin, but we must preserve it ; we
must not only keep him on it, but wo
must keep i lie white settler off it.
This there is difficulty in doing, but the
Government can do it, if it will. The
only other alternative is extermination of
the Indian, which would cost us one hun
dred thousand men, five years, and three
hundred millions of dollars. '
If this reservation and preservation be
pursued w shall bare no need of Quaker
commissioners, we could shortly reduce
our forces on the Plaius, and we might
claim at last to have done a tardy justice
to the savage tribes of whom our power,
has made us the guardians. Petersburg
