Tun London correspondent of the Chi
cago Tribune says: Mrs. Linton is the
contributor to the Saturday Review of the
"Girl of the Period" articles, which
gave terrible offense. Her husband, an
able engraver, has been in the United
States, I believe, for some time, and I
am sure his talent must have been dis.
played there. Before her marriage, Miss
Lynn published some novels which at
tracted considerable attention by the au
dacity 01 the theories which were broach
ed, as well as by the incidents detailed.
Mrs. Linton, I understand, is collecting
her 'contributions to. the Saturday Re
view, and a remarkable volume she will
make. There seems no possibility in
these times of preserving the anonymous
long. A year is the outside. Perhaps
the secret of the authorship of "Ecce Ho
mo" was kept as well as auy of recent date.
There were all sorts of guesses until at
hat Prof. Seely's name crept out. The
"AmaU3ur:Casual" was another success
for a time, but the gentleman in question
fell out with the conductors of the peri
odical in which his adventure appeared,
and ultimately Mr. Greenwood published
his name as the author. The Saturday
Review; perhaps, would have preferred
the anonymous to the "Girl of the Period"
contributions, and would like the surmises
as to Marchionesses and Duchesses best,
for Mrs. Linton, though a clever woman,
is out of the silver fork school to which
the Saturday Review professes its con
tributors are restricted.

rinsaugp„,GAZETTE: THIIIISPA.Y; AUGUST 26, 1869
A. Miss Catharine E. Beecher, by re
quest, read a paper *fore the National
Teachers' Association, in session in Tren
ton, N. Y., entitled, ' , Something or
Woman better than the Ballot," from
whieh.we extract the following:
How much there is included in wo
man's distinctive and appropriate duties,
and how much science and practical
training are demanded properly to pre
pare for them, few realize. The selec
tion, preparation and care of food and
drinks for a family, are, in Europe, made
an art and science, to hich the meet lit
erary and cultivated devote attention The
selection, fitting and making of clothing
are other branches for which science and
training are demanded. The CM of
young infants and the nursing of the
mothers demand science and practical
training as much as any profession of the
other sex. The management and gov
erning of young children require as much
training and skill as the duties of the
statesman or warrior. The nursing and
care of the sick, if performed by conscien
tious scientifle and well trained nurses,
would save thousands of the victims of
ignorance and neglect. And then 'there
are out, door professions connected with a
home which are as suitable for women as
for men. The business of raising fruits and
flowers is especiall suited to woman as , also
the management of the dairy; and for these
the other sex are regularly instructed in
endowed agricultural schools, while wo
men cannot share these advantages. The
arta that ornament a home, such as draw
ing, painting, sculpture, and Dindscape
gardening, are peculiarly appropriate for
women as professions by which to secure
an independence. Yet but a few have
the opportunities which are abundantly
given to the other sex. These are all em
ployments suited to woman, and such as
would not take her from the peaceful re
treat of a home of her own, which by
;hese professions she might earn.
A collection of the more remarkable
precedents of love-letters, well chosen,
would be both useful and interesting;
and it would not he impertinent to ex
amine how far the modern facilities of in
tercommunication may not have induced
some deterioration in the style of amor
ous composition. Southey, apropos of
the loves of Leonard Ban and his cousin
Margaret, observes that theirs were not
times in which a sigh could be wafted
across the country by mail-ce ach at the
rate of eight miles an hour. What would
he have said of these days, in which, for
three cents, half an ounce of assurances
of unalterable affection maybe transmitted
from New York to Boston in a few hours,
or, indeed, the sigh (if under twenty
words) may be wafted Instantaneously by
electric telegraph? Here we may observe
that, in actions for breach of promise of
marriage, written evidence of the prom
ise, though its absence may weaken the
plaintiff's case, is far from being a sine
qua non. For example, in a case tried
some years ago, in which a marine-store
dealer. was the defendant, and a damsel
of Portsmouth the 'plaintiff, defendant's
counsel insisting very strongly that not a
single scrap of love•letter was produced
on , the other side, the learned judge
warned the jury against attaching much
significance, observing very pertinently
that it was absurd to expect that the man
would occupy himself with writing love•
letters to the young woman, when all he
had to do was to go round into the next
street and put his arm around her waist.
Ups anti Down! of. Fortune
An English paper has the following:
"At the last meeting of the Paddington
Board of Guardians, F. B. Prescott,
Esq., banker, in the chair, the Chairman
stated that while visiting the infirmary,
he had been accosted by a pauper Inmate
who a few years ago was in possession of
property worth from fifty thousand
to sixty thousand pounds; was a
blood relation to one of the highest peers
in the realm, and vitose fortunes bad
been completely broken by the failure of
Messrs. Overend and Guerney's concern.
This man, who Is seventy years of age,
after recounting in a forcible and intelli
gent manner • the difference between
the present and his former mode
of lining, and, also, after stating
that he had met with every kind
ness from the work house officials, asked
him (the Chairman) to request the guar
dians-to grant him a few indulgences- be
yond those accorded to the lower sub
stratum of paupers living In the work
house. The Chairman added that such
had been the gentlemanly behavior of
the man while in the house that the mas
ter and matron had frequently supple—
mented the diet usually allowed by little
luxuries which they had paid for out of
their own pockets. After the vice Chair
man had expressed his ;regret that the
law did not allow guardians •to draw a
line of demarcation between the treat
ment of the well•conditioned and ill-con
ditionad pauper, the Board resolved that
Lord be written to, informing him
of his relation's present circumstances.
Pr sus been ascertained that the climate
of Key West, Florida, has a similar adap
tability to the manufacture of cigars as
that of Cuba; and that a celebrated Ha.
vans cigar manufacturer determined to
try the experiment of establishing a large
factory for the manufacture of cigars at
that point, which is said to have proved
a success. The tobacco is brought from
Cuban fields and 200,000 cigars per mouth
are now being turned out from-the Key
West establishment. They are said to
equal in flavor the finest brands of Cuban
clgars v and can be furnished to . American
consumers at from thirty to forty per
cent. less than, the present prices asked
and paid for similar articles. More face
tortes will be speedily established at Key
West, and altogether there is a good
prospect ahead for sinokers; that is if the
whole thing is not': clever dodge for
WB ABE =Wed. to observe that many
prominent journals, which ridiculed the
idea of the Empress of France visiting'
the United States next summer, a fact
first announced in this journal, have
since informed their readers that cottages
have been engaged - at Saratoga, for the
use of the Empress and her party. The
