THURSDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1869,
For the Advertiser.
Mr. Editor Trust intrin theusual
fairness with which you deal with all
reform questions, and the boldness
with which you confront error, I ven
ture a few words on that hiddeous
thing a fashionable women.
Just here I want to correct a little
misunderstanding. This has reached
my ears a number of times: "Mrs.
Harding better not write against
fashion, for she is the most fashionable
women in Loudon." This has been
said by worthy ladies who deserve
respect, and I do respect them. Let
me set them right, here. Let them
want a little, and I will tell them
what I mean by a fashionable women.
I am happy to record the fact that no
such a curse is to be found in Loudou.
Now, what is a fashionable women?
Inese facts are not as often found
in young States as in older ones. Yet,
a society grows out of the rude and
uncouiu into tne Dolislieti antl re
fined, it is very apt to adopt many of
me errors ana lollies or fashionable
A man or women with educated in
tellect, refined manner and cultured
syeech, without the silly absurd and
ruinous notions of fashion, is truly a
rsrc mm iiuiue ueing.
There is nothing so very commen
dable in extreme plalneness of dress.
,et, n people prefer that style, let
em have it.
TCleanlinessof person is a virtue, and
a neglect of this deserves censure.
A person without any taste in dress
is to be pittied. Taste and elecrance
should be studied in dressing the per
son when the occupation and occa
sion are suitable. ; 1 '
Neatness should ever be cultivated
Much refinement of either head or
heart need never be expected where
there is a neglect of cleanliness of per
son and a neglect in dress.
A fashionable women is an outrage
upon elegance in dress, a genteel and
modest toilette, a graceful and digni
fied appearance. She is a sickly.
good-for-nothing cumberer of soeiety.
She considers it a disgrace to cook her
ttllnla ! f (l cKo Tin a
to nurse her children; looks upon it
as a meanness to keep ner house in
order. Her very hired servant is her
superior in every sense.
A truly accomplished women will
know how to play the piano and bake
bread and make good butter, read
French and make shirts and , darn
stockings, be familiar iwith poetry
and philosophy, cultivate nowers, su
perintend the garden and attend to
the orchard,, be religious and go on to
perfection in housekeeping. ;
A fashionable women comes ver'
farshort'of this standard. Perhaps it
would be well enough to treat her
with the contempt she deserves and
leave her alone with her chignon,
stays, trails, I illy white, carmine pois
oned paints, uyes, powuers and ail
manner of "false appearances."
If the folly and evil ended with her.
but it only begins there : her children
grow up around her, and it is against
all the laws of nature and God that
such mother should have intelligent
children. Her offspring are always
materia and earthly, nothing high-
toned and spiritual; Christianity and
morality have not much "material to'
work upon with, them. Yrfu cannot
make industrious, intelligent, refined,
religious men and women out of them.
How verv imnortant it is that wo
man should stand in her true position
before the world, arid' sustain w th
dignity and honor, her relation tp so
ciety. Not a useless creature, a
painted dolll nor man's share, but a
"help-mate ' for him that Is, a com
panion, .worthy of him: his equal.
She should be educated into an obe
dience of the laws of health. Then a
vast amount of crime, drunkenness,
debauchery, revealing and all man
ner of evil would not be enacted, be
cause her sons and daughters would
be more intellectual, higher-toned in
morals, more religious, more spiritual.
There should be no mock-modesty
about this certainly not, when their
effected modesty is bought with the
ruin, physical and moral of men and
wiomen. Jennette Harding.
Greely on Woman's Rights.
Horace Greely, who certainly can
not be charged with prejudice against
isrm, (indeed his proverbial weakness
is the other way) has published a cap
ital letter in the Hearth, ana Jiomc
upon the "woman question," and
there is therein so much of proper
sentiment and good sense that we
transfer some portions to our columns.
Sympathizing as he does witn tne
feeling that the "better half of crea
tion, should be honored, protected
and secured in the enjoyment of all
their natural rights, and condemning
the present gross inequality In the re
muneration allowed to male and fe
male labor, he has no sort of sympa
thy with those miscalled champions
of the sex who spout pretty nonsense
or parrot platitudes at conventions,
and bring ridicule upou all proper ef-
forts for social amelioration. lue
political woman Is not to his taste,
and he does not admit that the claims
for the suffrage privilege, are endorse
ed by the women of th land. We
like his views, and we think we are
not faraway from the true position,
when we say that whenever the wo
men of the country really make up
their minds, that they need and want
the suffrage, whether it is best or not,
it will be allowed them without the
slightest di.ubt.but the weight of evi
dence to-day is overwhelmingly the
other way. The extracts below indi
cate his general views :
I hold that God created our race,
male and female; with clear seeing in
tent that it should thereby be rendered
more efficient, nobler, happier, than
it otherwise could be, and that this
diversity relates not to a single func
tion merely, but extends to our entire
physical, intellectual, and emotional
nature. I hold that the ap
pointed sphere of man is broader, not
higher, tl a i 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.
Nature has assigned to each a dis
tinct, definite sphere, and the happi
ness of both, the due development and
well-being of their children, the com
fort and enjoyment of their gutff,
dictate that each should recognsze tne
the other's precedence within the
proper radius of his or her dom'njon.
As to Government: I thrif
tily wish the women of our country,
and of each State, would clioc e t.it-ir
wisest and bsst 10 assemble f ge le
gates, consider the needs a rons
of their sex, and memoria;.j Con
gress and their respective LogTdiure
for the removal of th wro gs. I
am con fident that such dek ,:at : fair
ly chosen by the genera! voice of their
sex, would make no CeiTiand that I
would not heartily socond. I believe
valuable suggestion i.v.ht be ex
pected from such a congregation of
the gentler and purer sex. But from
a Congress or Legislature elected by
men and women voting together, and
made up in good part of such women
as would naturally aspire to and enjoy
seats uierein, and being closeted on
committies with such men as they
wouia meet therein, '. pray to be de
livered. Of my seven children, but two pur-
vive, both girls, for whom I would
make life as fair and hopeful as may
be. I presume them quite as capable
as most other girls to do their part In
whatever bents their sex and their
station. I would have their lives ac

Railroad Convention at Xevr
The grand Railroad Convention, at
Newark, Mo., Tuesday, was one of the
largest and most enthusiastic gather
ings, in the interests of the Quincy
Missouri & Pacific Railroad that hah
yet been held. In addition to the
large delegation from this city, the
counties of of Knox, Marion, Lewis
and Shelby, were fully represented.
The best of feeling prevaded all pres
ent, and a unanimous desire to prose
cute the work tosuccessful termination
was expressed in word3 that could not
be misunderstood, while the liberality
of the different townships in subscrib
ing to the enterprise was a guarantees
that they are quite as much in earnest
as is Quincy.
Upon the meeting being called to
order by its chairman, Mr. Fresh, of
Lewis County, Mr. Savage of this city
(President of the road), arose and
gave a detailed account of what had
been done by the surveying parties,
what was yet to be done, and what
was expected from the citizens of
Missouri. He was followed by Gen.
Prentiss and Hon. W. A. Richardson
of this city, who explained what was
to be derived from this road, and the
utter worthlessness of the splendid
crops upon their beautiful lands with
out the means of bringing the same to
market. Every point bearing on the
subject was brought forward and dis
cussed amidst the greatest enthusiasm.
Mr. Hulls, of Ediua, Mo., followed in
the same strain, and spirit of rivalry,
was engendered as to which township
would surpass the other in the amount
of stock they would take in the enter
prise. Counselor Pratt, of Knox
Count', also addressed the Conven
tion urging the importance of a hearty
earnest co-operation, and presented
the subject so clearly to our friends In
Missouri, that there was no escaping
from the conviction of his argument.
Resolutions were passed by the
Convention, at Newark to raise $100,
000 in that township, and$o0,000 more
was promised by the Round Grove
township. A proposition is to be at
once submitted to the Salem township
for taking ?oU,lXX in stock, while a like
proposition for a large amount in one
of the townships in Shelby county was
agreed to. This county also agreed to
get large subscriptions from the va
rious townships likely to be benefited
by the road, though the same were
not directly upon its route.
The feeling was so strong among the
people from along the proposed route,
that they pledged themselves to raise
more money upon the route already
surveyed, than could be possibly ob
tained upon any other. They propose
to tax themselves one dollar an acre,
upon all the land in their townships,
and more if necessary. The enthusi
asm of the meeting knew no bounds.
and the feeling of all present was that
the money would be forthcoming
whenever wanted, and the work
should be pushed forward with energy
and dispatch. Quincy Whig and Re

That discontent Is unworthy which
is merely fretful. But as for that dis
content which sees what is wrong in
things and is perpetually trying to
set them right, where would the
world be without It? Galileo, declar
ing that nevertheless the world did
move: Jenner. persisting in his dis
covery of inoculation for the small
pox; George Stephenson, patiently
enduring jibes and difference, and
yielding to the ignorance of a parlia
ments committee so much as to con-
ten.t himself with saying that his en
gine would travel four or five miles an
hour: Fulton, determined that the
Clermont could and should go to Al
bany; Goodyear, giving his life to ab
ject poverty in the persuit of that
strange union of caoutchouc with sul
phur, these were all dissatisfied men
who disturbed a sleepy, easy-going
world with their experiments and im
portunities, so that the world decried
them, but could not carry them down.
Suppose it had cried them down, or
any of them, what then ? Then we
should only have waited just so much j
longer for the discoveries which are
daily helps to us. It Is comfortable to
be lazy, the world hates to be distur
bed from its ease by your inventors,
your philanthropists, your reformers,
your thinkers; some 01 tne naruest
work is done to avoid worKing, ami

thought. As history is only repeti
tion, we are doubtless still engaged in
resisting those disturbers who try to
make us move on the higher ground;
we call them eccentric, pestilent, im
practical, and they bear it, but they
will not let us alone, and sooner or la
ter we must move with them.
