r FRIDAY JUNE 21, IS7S. SEEKING BEDBESS BY VIOLENCE. Hie dire antagonism that exists be tween capital and labor, neither of which could be maintained or, Indeed, created without the other, culminated last week in a great riot at Quebec. The scenes that disgraced portions of the United States last year were there en acted over, though with less destruction to property and stores. An occasion of this kind, engendered without doubt In the first place by real hardship and per haps injustice being visited upon the laboring class, is an opportunity waited and longed for by myriads of thriftless idlers, men who never work, yet feel that in some undefinable way other men lujure them by obtaining by labor, thrift, economy, trade, or barter, a com petency. Carried forward and in a great measure protected by the temporary frenzy of the populace, this class of per sons swell the ranks if they do not form the main body of the unreasoning mob that, under plea of destitution, destroy by fire and p...

.JUNE 28, 1S7S. DOUBTPTJLWEALTH. We flod 1b an exchange a "stick-full" of twaddle beaded "A Woman's Advice to Women," which closes with this query, pertinent or impertinent, accord ing to tbe ideas of those to whom it is addressed : "Is not tbe inarease of pop ulation tue true wealth of a nation ?" Thinking for a moment and a mo ' nient's thought Is usually more than the customary advice to women is justly entitled to receive we reply, that depends more upon the quality tbao tbe quantity. To illustrate: As we pass back and forth from home to office each day, our way leads by a house if one room can be dignified by the name of a house where liveand eat and sleep a man, hia wife ami four or five cbildreu; the man stalwart and plodding, the woman frail and broken down, the ebildren puny and pale, with out physical stamina or mental activ ity, and equally without opportunity to cultivate even the meager store that dwarfed nature has bestowed upon them.

Does not this dis tinction plainly show that, while pro fessing to legislate for the people of the State to be, these constitution framers are expected by opponents of equal rights to grant exclusive privileges to one-half, aud restrict the privileges of the other half ?
