another fortnight like the past and the'
crisis of the harvest Will be over. The .
copious rains which fell some time ago,

the corn. This favorable change in the
weather stopped an advance in corn, but
great fluctuation is still expected, as the
crops throughout Europe. with the ex
ception of the interior of Russia, promise
to be light.

Prepozattons for the Ecumenical Coun
cil of Rome.
ROUE, Italy, August 5, 1869
The only cool place in Rome is St.
Peter's, where the workmen are very
busy erecting a building within the great
transept for the Ecumenical Council. It
is, in tact, a hail, with its rows of seats,
its aisles and its boxes, vast enough for
the purpose, and yet invisible from many
parts of the great building. A partition
reaches to the spring of the arches, and
a platform which covers the whole of the
inside is elevated eight steps above the
pavement. On this is a, semi-circle of two
wings, formed by the seats for the car
dinals. The throne is in the center,
raised considerably above the platform.
On the other side of the cardinals' chairs
are seven rows of seats, designed for the
other members of the clergy—the bishops,
archbishops, monsignori, &c.
Each member of the Council is fur
nished with a pie dieu, which can, at
will, be converted into a writing desk.
Lower seats will be provided for secreta
ries, and other
whom the Pope
may require to be present. For theologi
cal students, reporters and others, a gal
lery will be raised. An altar will
be so erected as to , be visible
from every seat, together 'with a
tribune for the use of the speakers.
The whole building will be richly deco
rated with' tapestry and other hangings,
frescoes and , rich ornamentation. No
seats are provided in the present plan for
the representatives of the Catholic powers.
The question of questions which is agi
tated in Europe at the present moment,
Is this one of the approaching Council.
Germany, especially, puts herself almost
uliformly in an attitude of hostility to the
ultramontane party. There is but one
dogma which that party wish to enfince,
that givei no trouble anywhere. It is
that of the 'Assumption of the Virgin.
But against-the syllabus, against the - In.
fallibility of the'Pope, there is almost a
universal cry of opposition.l—Cor. Y:

BLOOMER GIRLS IN WISCONSIN.
In our ramble "Up the Chippewa,".in
Northern Wisconsin, a few days ago, we
chanced upon a husky, brown•faced girl
plowing out a twenty acre corn field. She
was rigged in a snuff colored "bloomer,"
with a straw hat, and good, honest num
ber seven boots. She had been in the
field since early morning, taking long
strides behind a spirited horse, with the
lines' thrown across her shoulder, and
both hands firmly at the plow. It was
just "good fun," she said, to take care of
20 acres, and away she strode through
the long rows—turning corners, lacking
over sods, and never a thought of rest or
"whoa," till the dinner horn sounded
across the field. On inquiry, we learned
that our corn-field heroine wasone of two
New Hampshire girls, who itnigrated
with their parents to 'Eau Claire some
dozen years ago. They bargained for a
•quarter section of wildland, and set about
making a farm.: There were no boys in
the family, ' The girls were, youna.
bright, healthy, and' Pull of prock
and vigor. Their mother dressed
them in bloomers, and gave them
their choice, indoors or out. From
the start, they took the place of
boys; they were not afraid of dust or sun
shine; they never complained; they never
tired out; they seldom missed a day from
the fields through all the„ seasons, from
earliest spring to latest autumn. As they
grew older, they grew tough and wiry,
and were alike ready at handling teams,
breaking colts, building bridges, opening
roads, fording creeks, clearing meadows, I
loading hay, binding grain, or mounting
a straw stack. In good seasons they cut
eighty tons of hay and eighty acres of
grain. In rainy seasons they had to
bring out their hay "by hand," carrying
it on poles, knee deep through sloughs .
and marshes. In winter they attended
school .and took care of sixty head of
cattle, drawing hay from the :swamps in
the coldest weather. They hired no help
except at harvesting. They did
their own trading and marketing,
and could never be outwitted by
any of the store chaps at Eau
Claire. The girls are now 18 and 20
years of age, and have done more farm
work than any two boys in the county.
Their father, beginning with nothing, is
now rich, with broad fields, and thou
sands of ready Stamps, mostly achieved
through the grit and energy of his
daughters. During the present season
the girls have "let up" a little on their
out door accomplishments, and are only
cultivating twenty acres of corn for their.,'
own amusement. They have built them
a spacious residence. They attend halls
and parties, go trouting, drive their own
teams, and occasionelly give the boys a
chance to show their spunk and gallantry.
Ofcourse such gins ar.e objects of excite
ment. and Interest in their neighbor
hood. They are looked upon as
"capital prizes," and the young fellows
are ready to - break their necks for them.
They are now right In their fresh
est bloom, with thoughts orlove and ro
mance. and what may seem strange, they
are neither coarse nor masculine in ap
pearance; they are simply round, trim, -
sprightly girls, with resolution in 'their
eye'and plenty of good sense in their
/heads. It may be interesting to female
politicians to know that these Chippewa
Valley girls never whine or declaim about
their "rights" or "position." They saw
rough work to be done—work the most
needed in our Western country—and,
asking odds from nobody, they went in
bravely on their muscle and didit. They
have made no noise about it. They have
not cackled at Conventions. They have -
.with Miss Anthony or Lucy
Stone Blackwell. They have fairly won
a much higher seat among the queens of
American Industry.—Evening Wisconsin.
