It was considered honorable for women to toil in ohlon time. Alexander the Great stood in his palaco showing garments made by his own mother. The finest tnpestries at Bayeux were made by tho Queen of William tho Conqueror. Augustus, the Emperor, would not wear any garment except those that were fashioned by somo member of his Royal family. So let the toiler everywhere be respected! The needle has slain more than tho sword. e When tho was Invented some thought that invention would woman's toil and put an end to tho despotism of tho needle. But no! While e tho has lieen n great blesso ing to families in many ensee, it hns added to tho stab of the necdlo the crush of tho wheel, and multitudes of women, notwithstanding tho reinforcement of tho can only make, uork hard as they will, lictuecu two dollars nnd three dollars per week. no happiness in idleness. Tho most uuhnppy women in our communities y are those who hove no engagements to call them up in the morning: who, onco having risen and breakfasted, lounge through tho dull forenoon in slippers down nt the heel and with disheveled hair, reading Ouidu's last novel, and who, havind dragged through a wretched forenoon and taken their afternoon sleep, and having passed nn hour and a half at their e toilet, pickup their and go out to make calls, and who pass thoir evenings waiting for somebody to come in and break up the monotony. Arabella Stuart never was imprisoned in so dark a dungeon as that. There is no happiness in nn idle woman. It may be with hand, it may be with brain, it may be with foot; but work she must, or be wretched for ever. The little girls of our families must be started with that idea. The curse of our American society is that our young women aro taught that the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, tenth, fiftieth, thousandth thing in their life is to get somebody to tuke care of them. Instead of that the first lesson should be bow, under God, they may take care ot themselves. The simple fact is that a majority of them do have to take care of themselves, and that, too, after having through the false notions of their parent wasted the yurs in which thiv sewing-machinsewing-machinwell-to-dsowing-iuachin- e, to-da- card-cas- neither shall he eat." Idleness mins tho health, and very soon nature says: "This man has rofused to pay hl3 rent; out with him !" Society is to be reconstructed on the subject of woman's toil. A vast majority of those who would have woman industrious shut her up to a few kinds of work. My judgment in this matter is thnt a woman has a right to do anything she can do well. There should bo no department of merchandise, mechanism, art or science Imrred against her. If Miss has genius for sculpture, givo her a chisel. If Rosa Bonheur has a fondness for delineating animals, let her make "Tho Horse Fair." If Miss Mitchell will study astronomy, let her mount tho starry ladder. If Lydia will be a merchant, let her sell purple. If Lucretia Mott will proach the Gospel, let her thiill with her womanly oloquence the Quaker meeting-housIt is said if woman is given such opportunities sho will occupy places that might be taken by man. I say if sho havo more skill and adaptednes3 for nny io.sllion than a man has, let her have it. She has as much right to her bread, to her apparel and to her home as men have. But it is said that her nature is so delicato that she is unfitted for exhausting toil. I ask, in tho name of all past history, what toil ou enrth is moro severe, exhausting and tremendous than that toil of tho needle to which for agos she has been subjected? The battering-ram- , the sword, the the battle-axhave made no such havoc as the needle. I would that these living sepulchers, in which women have for agos been buried, might be ojened, and that some resurrection trumpet might bring up these living corpses to tho fresh air and sunlight Go with me and I will show you a woman who, by hardest toil, supports her children, her drunken husband, her old father aud mother, pays her house rent, always has wholesome food on tho table, and when she can get soma neighbor on the Sabbath to come in nnd take care of her family, appears in church with hat and cloak that are far from indicating the toil to which she is subjected.

By what principle of jnstice is it that women, in many of our cities, get only as much pay as men, and in many cases only half? Here is the gigantic injustice that for work equally well, if not better, done woman receives far less compensation than man. Start with the National Government: Women clerks in Washington City get nine hundred dollar's for doing that for which men get ono thousand eight hundred dollars. Tho wheel of oppression is rolling over the necks of thousands of women who are at this moment in despair about what they are to do. Many of the largest mercantile establishments of our city are accessory to these abominations, and from their largo establishments there are scores of souls being pitched off into death, and their employers know it. Is there a God? Will there be n judgment? I tell you, it God rises up to redress women's wrongs many of our large establishments will bo swallowed up quicker than a South American earthquake ever took down a city. God will catch thes 3 oppressors between the two millstones of His wrath and grind them to powder.

Tho flaming sword that hung at Eden's gate when woman was driven out will cleave with its terrible edge her oppressors. But thero is something for women to do. Let young people prepare- to excel in spheres of work and they will be ablo after awhilo to get larger wages. If it bo shown that a woman can in a store sell more goods In a year than a man she will soon be able not only to ask, but to demand more wages, and to demand them successfully. Unskilled and incometent labor must take what is given; skilled and competent labor will eventually make its own standard. Admitting that the law of supply and demand regulates these things, I contend that the demand for skilled la- bor is very great and the supply very small. Start with the idea that work is honorable, and that you can do some one thing better than any body else. Resolve that, God helping, you will take care of yourself.

Wo have the common "house spider," too, as it is called, sometimes almost as large as the tarantula; but he is entirely harmless, and people hardly ever take the trouble to kill him.

The tarantula, however, will empty a room of its occupants in about as short order as a tiger wouhL The first one I ever saw in Jassua was when I had been at Waterloo about a month and was having tho bushes cleared away from about the house. Some of the colored boys were at work 3n the llower garden, and one morning they made a grand dash for the front piazza. They all looked well frightened, and I asked them what was the matter. "Groun1 spider, boss," ono of them replied as soon as he could catch breath enough.

On going to bed one night he put on that long white linen garment which is so comforting to the senses in a hot climate, and it did not take him long to discover that there was something in it A moment later a centipede was fastened to his back, and the gentleman was trying to tear tho linen off'with as little delay as possible. The centipede by this time had given up all claim to the linen, but held on to tho back for dear life. They stick very tightly, having to be almost torn off; and the gentleman had to call for help to have him pulled off. By the time assistance arrived tho insect had crawled a foot or two up his victim's back, leaving a fiery red mark wherever a claw htid touched. And all this time tho gentleman was enjoying tho sensation of having a hundre t hot needles run into him. From this and soui similai implements we could find, experiences it is quite fashionable in the as well as a wagon load or so of good-size- d tropics to shake your clothes well before stones.

Cattlo-Connnon$2 ana what kmu ol encouragement uoj it give to those who believe that public office is a public trust? "Turn the rascals out" expresses the sentiment of the vast majority of the people, and it is that sentiment which Postmaster-General x. m ed half-grow- Vilas heeds in his letter. Wherever he finds a postmas ter who has abused Ins trust he proposes to remove him and substitute a man who will attend to duty, not to the manipulation of conventions, caucuses and wires. The only fault to be found, if any, is that he proposes to draw the lino rather too niildly. His idea seems h to to bo that from of the postmasters havo been offensive partisans. Is it not well known to almost any reader that in the circle of towns at in which he is acquainted, one-haleast of all tho postmasters have been more active in attending to the workings of party machinery than to the duties of office? Wc balieve those who will consider for a moment will agree with us that the Postmaster-Generhas given postmasters the advantage of every possible doubt Tho masses in all parties want good, iiurc eovernment; they desire to have good men in ollicc. But they know that their desires can not be gratified if conscientious, faithful ollicials arc to have no advantage over those of the opposite sort; if, in short the rascals are to be allowed to remain in. Moreover, all but the partisans desire tho success of the Administration; but there can be no success if inefficient or negligent aro allowed to retain their places, to tho embarrassment and hinone-sixtone-quart- er lf al office-holde- rs drance of the Administration.

County Taxation, I'roni Louisville Commercial 1 A CommonwMUb.J THE CONSTITUTIONAL Lottho j Democratic Name the Changes yorod. Purty Fa- - It isnnsumcd that the most intelligent , progressive and best thought of Kentucky, favors u now constitution. And yet tho proposition has been submitted several times to tho vote of the people, and tie often been rejected, or failed. In each of the several elections jurat, the two great political parties, tho Democratic and Republican, representing approximately all tho voters of tho State, in their State .convention?, havo resolved in favor of tho proposed Constitutional Convontion. Why thou has it failed The friends of a new constitution give different reasons for tho failure, chief of which, is tho indifference of the pcoplo in voting, the law counting those not voting as against tho proposition. Pursue tho inquiry further, and ask tho cause of this great and continued indifference on tho part of the pcoplo to a movement represented to bo of such groat and necessity to the host interest of those samo people who from year to year refuse the alleged blessing. It is idle to talk of a pooplo refusing from year to year, this or anj- - other proposition, known to bo fraught with improvements, benctits, and prosperity. The usual answer is that the mass of Kentucky voters arc uninformed as to the changes needed and therefore do not 'and understand or appreciato tho "promised benefits from such changes. This is largely true, and tho intelligence of tho voters, is not necessarily reflected upon either, becauso tho average voter whose mind is occupied with hU farm, or daily avocation, is neither expected to bo a constitutional lawyer, or oven well read up as to any defects of his Stato constitution. But in addition to tho ignorance of voters as to needed changes as a cause for the indifference of the poople, thero comes anothor potent cause, and this among men of intelligence, and that is a distrust of a convention accomplishing the reforms as discussed by the people, &c. Many State constitutions provide for changes and oviendments, not only through organic conventions, but authorize such bj tho State Legislature submitting any needed or desired amendmont to a direct vote of the people.
