IT is announced that the 'contract for

that work will soon commence. The

Ox THE 18th of May the annual gen

tocik place in. Berlin, and four thousand
were in attendance. Papers were
read urging that knowledge and, in
struction should be free, and on other
subjects, but the most ~significant' of all
was a discourse on laboi, and capital, in
which it was maintained that po4tical
and social economy should form a por

THE position of the Catholic thurck. is
viewed with anxiety now by many o the
moat learned and must members of
that communion In Germany. The See
of Rome has chosen a moment when it Is
surrounded by difficulties, to urge ex
treme measures against some of its most
powerful defenders and adherents in
Germany, and naturally: much' dissatis-
faction is felt there on this account. This
alone would be of interest even /at .
distance, but what is of infinitely more
significance, is the fact that the German
Catholics are beginning seriously to
consider whether they cannot break off
all connection with Rome and still re
main Catholics, by organizing them
selves into an independent National
Church. In Stuttgardt meetings to ad
vance this object have alreedy been hold,
and the whole movement In Wurtemburg
is led by quiet, intelligent men, who are
capable of pressing it to a successful
termination. In Bavaria the same revo
lution is La progress, as indeed it all
over Catholic Germany, and walook for

Ws do not assert that the United
States Government needs • more pesters
and folders, but we do believe that they
ought to have better ones, and especially
in the Postoffice Department. The new
postage stamps are much handsomer than
the old ones, and are really neat in design
and execution, but all this Is thrown
away on the folders and the men who
put the rows of little holes In 'them:
Theoretically these dividing lines occupy
the blank spaces between the stamps,
practically it seems they cut off the cow
catcher of a locomotive or the tail of a
pony with utter recklessness; Then the
pesters arc theereticilly supposed to make
the stamps adhesive, practically they put
a thin wash with a sweetish taste over
the baCks of the stumps which all comes
off when wet, and the letter, on which
some ignoramus has credulously placed a
stamp without having added some paste,
is detained for postage. If this pasting
and folding can be better done why is it
not? If the dividing lines mist go
through the engravings, why have any
engravings at all? If the stamps tan not
be made adhesive, why have any stamps
at all?
MART persons dealing with the Ala.
bama question appear to entirely lose
sight of the fact that England eventually
acknowledged her error and the justice
of the claim for damages made on her
by our Government. She entered into
a solemn treaty which provided for the
appointment of a Commission to fairly
and honestly ascertain the actual damages
sustained from the depredations of the
Alabama and other Confederate cruisers,
whose award, had the treaty been ratified,
she would have accepted as final, and
promptly discharged the obligation.
Standing-ready to pay the swat d, ack no wl
edging Its correctness, and to make all
needful apology and concession, Mr.
BIIIINIER'S speech found her.' His demands
that the offending nation should not only
setttle the account of actual material
losses sustained, but likewise of a whole
train of damages, resulting from a pro
traction of the rebellion,"l swelling the
amount to two thousand million dollars,
was regarded. by Englalid, and very
properly, too, as an outrageo& propos!.
tion derogatory alike to her National
Honor and Intelligence. Before this
enormous claim would be recognized or
paid there must be war with that Gov
ernment; but if the bill covered only the
actual losses to our commerce from the
operations of the privateers, if is reas
onable and business-like, it will be
promptly met and paid. What more
should we ask?
A man's workshop burns down'and in
consequence thereof, having no place, his
trade leaves him and he loses, perhaps, an
_hundred thousand dollars, which he might
have made had his business been permit- .

This is precisel the view which should
be taken of the A abama question. Eng
land i willing to pay the material dama
ges, b t will not r cognize the consequen
tial da ages—what we lost, but not all
we may sup 1 se w have lost and continue
owe may

war, which, Itho t British support, Mr.
Summit thinks • 1 tad have been much
earlier ended.
In Great B r i tain !e number of women
exceeds the n um ber of men in a propor
tion which gr ows larger every year. In
England and Wales there are almost three
millions of women between twenty and
forty years of age, and of these 1,248,000
are unmarried. Why they are thus does
not ent r bite Oa question; for whatever
the re n, the Appalling fact remains that
that m ay there now are, and that the
numbers steadily increasing . That the
extravagance of t, e age prevents many
men fro marrying is undoubtedly tru ,
but if all he men were married, a not i -
signilica army of spinsters would sr I
remain, s that it is no wonder that the
woman's labor question is becoming
serious. sitis in Great Britian, so is it
in those f the. United States which
have been settled for the longest time.
In Massac usetts for instance, where the
population is but twelve hundred the -I
sand, there were, at the taking of the la 1
census, fOrty thousand more women tha
men. As we are not yet ready to adopt
the simple Chinese system of drowning all
superfluous female infants, we must take
it for granted that these women must live,
and in some way solve the question of
hew they are to do it. Time honored
custom and multitudinous precedent or
dain that the strongei sex must find the
means of subsistence for the weaker, but
no provision has been made by monogam
ous peoples for the time when the weaker
sex beclmes numerically the stronger. In
England, where the labor market is over
stocked, i t is by no means easy to provide
for this emergency, but in America, all
that is necessary is—not to concede suf
frage to women, as some seem to think—
merely to overcome a deep rooted
prejudice, which exists against a
woman working -at and receiv
ing wages for any labor for which
she is fit or may be fitted. There is
enough in this "country for every one to
do, and as soon as this prejudice is de
molished the question will be solved for
many years to come.
We take the following very important
Washington special from Monday's New
York Timm:
Since the discussion- of the Alaband
question, both at home, and abroad, has
taken such a wide seope, and since there
has-been such a decided reaction from
the positions of Mr. Sumner's speech,
and since the proposition to make the
question a party issue meets with
serious countenance, it becomes more
than usually interesting to know pre
cisely where the Administration stands
at present. The Gladstone Ministry will,
In a few days, officially understand our
position, and there can,. therefore, be, no
impropriety In stating the facts as they
So much has been said from this point
on this subject...and such vague and con
tradictory accounts have been given of
Mr. Motley's instructions. that the pub
lic mind must be much confused* re
specting the precise attitude of our Gov
ernment. Mr. Sumner, while never as
serting in positive terms that those in:.
atm:al - one were based on his apeeoh, has,
nevertheless, sought to convey in his
conversations the impression that he had
been substantially indorsed, and he has
repeatedly stated that Mr. Motley and
himself were in perfect accord upon the
. subject. This latter assertion is very, possi
bly true. But Mr. Sumner knows, what-
Mr. MotleY's instructions are as thor.
oughly as does the man who wrote them,
and his pride probably prevents him from
- making a frank admission of the com
pleteness of his defeat. No matter what
impressions he may convey in discussing
the subject, it is nevertheless known here
that he is much displeased with the in
structions, and that they are - almost
entirely at variance with his views, for
the following reasons:
First—Mr. Sumner wanted Mr. Motley
instructed to propose a reopening of the
negotiations at ence on the basis of his
speech. Mr. Motley's instructions were
precisely the rev s-ie
4 1 of this, to•wit—to
makeno overtur for the reopening of ne
gotiations at present, but await the action
of the French Government and the de
velopment of events,
Second-=Mr. Sumner wanted the in
structions to cover the question of belli
gerency, which, he insists in his speech,
gives this Government 'a claim against
the British Government for damages or
reparation. On the oontrary, Mr. Mot.
ley was instructed to inform the British
Government at a le proper time that ,the
United States, a Government, has no
claim against Greta Britain for damages
because of her recognition of Me' belliger
ency of the rebels.
This whole matter was maturely con
sidered by the President, both in- Cabi
net and out of Cabinet, and in the light
not only of our relations to Great Britain,
but our relations to France,_Spain and
other nations which rec ognised the
booth in these discussions. The only man
who stood by Mr. Sumner'sposition was
Secretary Boutwell. Every other mem
ber of the pabinet, as well as the Presi
dent, disapproved very decidedly qf the
policy enunciated :in Mr. Sumner's
speech, and the result of their delibera
tions was, as has been repeatedly stated
in your telegraphic dispatches,. that the
Administration on this question resolved
upon the policy of non-action.'
These I know to be the facts in the
case, and they define substantially the
present attitude of the Administration.
I may add one Word respecting the
Cuban question. The President, the Sec
retary of War, and possibly one or two
other members of the Cabinet,• were
strongly desirous of taking early steps
toward the recognition of the insurgents.
But after a careful review of the whole
situation, it was formally .decided that
the aspect of anhirs didhot *arrant as by the Goyenunent. This was prior
to the meat 'revoltitionary events on , the
island, fwbiehg there has been no'
reconsideration of Abe nub' act. •

As the time of frosts has past, we will
give a hint, which may be a benefit to an
observing agriculturalist. From Nevem
beilto June, especially March, April and
Mai, when there is mingling of the win
ter and summer atmosphere, and plants
or early productions require protection
from frost,-you may observe your ther

eight, to eleven o'clock P. it. If in the
'city at 50, you may expect a very slight
frost.\ The same in the country at 45, a
heavy frost. There is a difference be
tween' the city and country atmosphere
of flveto eight degrees, according to la
cation.' If at ten o'clock P. K., the range
is froin thirty-eight to forty-five, on a .
clear night, prepare for a frost; in the city
on a clear night, at forty-five to fifty, you
may know there will be frost in the
country. When it is cloudy all night at

Binsteal Contest at the elttsburgh Fe— ;
• wale College, 1
The musical contests of the Pittsburgh
Female College have always been largely
attended, and afforded the most decided
satisfaction to those present. Music co
cupiea a high place in this institution,
and the greatest proficiency is attained
by the pupils. The contests are annually
held for the McKee prizes, a beautiful
and costly gold medal , and a handsome
silver medal, which by special endow
ment, are awarded to the mostbrilliant
instrumental performers. The Mel
lor prize, a splendid volime of vocal
gems, is also competed fbr and awarded
the best cultured vocalist. To-morrow •
night the contest will take place in the
Chapel of the College, and as the young
ladies competing from a class conspicu
ous for their musical talents over any
that has ever preceded them, we antici
pate a very enjoyable entertainment.
The Judges have been wisely and care
fully selected, as the following names
will attest: Messrs. Chas, C. Mellor,
Carl Grebe, V. De Ham and C. Tete
deoux. The public generally and the
friends of the College particularly,'
are invited to attend. The cards of ad
mission may be obtained at the book and
music stores, and at the door to-morrow
evening. We can promise a rare treat
to all who attend, and those who are
capable of passing judgment on fine
music will have fall range for criticism,
as no ordinary performances are prom.
