Victoria, Queen, Wife, and Mother,
Homeward bound is thy son on the sea,
May the fleet of thy realm, bear our Guest
safely over,
And God's blessing be on him and thee.
Albert Edward,—Did thy name on all lips
And our homage of peace, flush thy face?
'Twas the home vein of Virtue that ever
doth sit
Round thy Mother, with right royal grace
Prince of Wales,—lch Dien,—l serve,
Did thy step on Columbia's soil
Touch thy soul's native freedom, and nerve
Thy young gentle heart for its toil?
Engiands scion, and hope,—Englands pride:
and her power,
May thy ways be the paths of pure truth,
And love for thy Mother, a tower
Of might, and God's strength to the youth.
Victoria, Queen, Wife, and Mother,
Thy dear son may God save to thee,
America greets as none other
Thy heart, and thy hand o'er the sea.

Marietta, Oct. 27, 1860.
For the Mariettiata.]
When Napoleon, the Great, attempted
to crush Madame De Stael with the re
mark that women should not meddle
with affairs of government, she returned
the unanswerable reply, that as women
were governed and punished by the laws,
it was natural that they should desire to
know something about them. Whether
the imitators of his tyranny, who, having
no power to silence by imprisonment and
banishment, attempt it by sneers and
abuse against -" female politicians "
whether such would be satisfied with her
answer or not, it is certain that mothers
who felt no interest in their nation's
prosperty—who knew and manifested no
love of its liberties—would be unfit to
train and educate the rising geneiation
to be citizens of a free country, and, the
depositories of the freedom and intelli
gence of future generations. Such wo
men, whether as sisters, wives, or moth
ers, could never imbue the hearts of
youth, nor stimulate the efforts of young
men, with that living love of liberty and
of country which fits them for the
and responsibilities of the free sovereigns
of a free land. Such women were not
the mothers of our Washington, Adams,
Jackson, and other good and great men
who have. marked out and "filled the
measure of our country's glory." Such
were not the maidens and Atrons of
New England, who signed the pledges
against drinking taxed tea,,i4n4 after
wards hastily equipped fathers and broth
ers, husbands and sons, and seat them
forth to battle at Concord and Lexing
ton, Bunker Hill and Bennington. Such
were not the women and girls of Penn
sylvania who raised $300,,000, and pur
chased materials of which they made,
with their own-liands;thcrusands of shirts
and Other garments for WaShington's
half naked 'end suffering soldiers in the
darkest days of Our B:eiolution. Such
were not the women of- the South, who
gave up to flames their' loved homes n to
baffle ' the conquering Cornwallis; and
boldly rebuked, face to face, the worse
than savage tories, who - then (as now
swarmed in those. States. And such
were not our frontier women, who shared
the‘perils of their husbands'and sons and
brothel's, supplying them with ammuni
tion at the risk' of life, and 'When their
defenders fell, caught up and wielded
their weapons against the savhge foe.
Now imagine some -doughfaced tory or
brawling demagogue of that day, sneer
ing at "female politicians," or dragging
their honorable and honored names into
his filthy kennel to weave them into ri
bald ditty, or an Editor degrading the
freedom of the press into base licentious
ness by publishing such base, dirty
rhymes ; and does not the mere thought
of such a past possibility fire your blood
and flush your cheek with mingling in
dignation and shame ? Yet those wo
men did "meddle with politics"—did
study, understand, and speak freely !about
the "party politics" of that time—ilid
I compose and sing songs to incite patriot
sages and heroes to debate and to battle,
and to cheer them in victory. Have the
so-termed "female politicians" of our own
day departed farther "out of their proper
sphere," than did our venerated mothers
and grandmothers, and their patriotic
female co-workers ? Or, is that which
is an honor to the women of the last
century, a disgrace to the women of this,
our own day ? _
We are not dismissing women's rights
to speak in public or to vote their polit-
ical views and feelings—none have done
so, and none, therefore, could be thus
assailed for such action. We speak only
of the ungentlemanly (not to se', the un
manly) conduct which would deprive
woman of the few limited privileges al
lowed her by custom and law—or which
would stigmatize her for exercising them
in the social circle, or by the Ilse of her
pen, in a decorous and proper manner.
She can not 'publicly speak and vote
her views and feelings on questions in
which she has as much at stake as we
have ; while her assailant has public
speech and franchise, beside all that is
allowed her. What unfairness—how un
generous, then, to endeavor by sneers
and ridicule to rob her of that which
would not increase his rights, and would
reduce her to utter ignorance and slave
ry ! Now, she can only act through fa
ther, husband, brother, son or male
friends, on proposed changes in laws
and institutions, in which her love of
freedom, country or race as deeply inter
est her as they can any of her country
men. And yet such sneerers would de
bar her from forming or holding opinions
on all those subjects which thrill her
soal—or- from expressing her opinions
and emotions in speech or song in the
social Circle--or from manifesting joy
with family and-friends, by weaving for
them wreaths and baguets, or even by
sewing together the glorious stars and
stripes to float in breezes laden with a
people's,shouts of victory !
"are we not correct in saying that such
attempts at interdiction are ungenerous
and unfair, if not unmanly ? Must they
not spring from some depravity of senti
ment, vihich has led to the undervaluing
of the sex, to which belong their own
mothers, sisters, wives and daughters?
Or, perhaps they flow from some bitter
principle of tyrannous despotism (con
cealed, it may lie, even from the "pos 7
sessed one") in the inner , heart, of .him
who would thus deprive others of their
natural and inalienable rights—who, be
ing unable to shackle mcn's minds and
padlock men's lips, would utterly sup
press women's thoughts and speech !
For that man is a despot in priuciple,
however his demagoguism may vainly,at
tempt to Conceal it, who would
others of rights and privileges which he
claim S -for himself—especially when they
do not really abridge his own. Witness
the usurpations to "force slavery, into
"Kansas—stuffing and destroying ballot
boxes, destroying preises,batterirur doWn
houses, breaking up a deliberative as
semblage by federal bayonets, and the
whole train of Lecompton Constitution
frauds and outrages„ under. Pierce and
Buchanan—constantly intervening, with
the whole power of the federal ludiciar3r
and executive, in favor of slavery and
against freedom. Witness Mr. Doug
las' proposed „infamous Gag Law, by
which all, meetings, speeches, papers,
and the cii-c - a 4 lation thereof; are to be
utterly suppressed ,under severe penal
ties if against slavery, but_not if against
freedom—hy,which, Dquglas him
self said, Seward, Hale, Wilson and
others would be imprisoned for life for
their speeckes • in favor of freedom and
union; while the disunionists may, utter
what they please in .favor of slavery—and
by which any man, for circulating the
' writings of Patrick. Efettry,.Jefferson,
Madison, Washingtoa and Franklin,
would be Punished severely ; but the cir
culator of tancey's Keitt's and other in;
sane, avings for slavery and disunion
may go free, if not, by applauded and re
warded. Such are the "equal rights" of
oar modern Democracy •
The state of affairs these manly sup.
pressers of. "female politician," and of
free speech and free presses generally,
would introduce in our land, remind one
strongly of the honest Irishman's objur
gation. He, was traveling through a
village on a frosty morning, when every
yelping cur and puppy came barking at
his heels. He grabbed a stone to hurl
at them, but it was frozen fast He grab
bed -at another—another—and another
—but all were chained to the earth by
the frost.- "A pretty free country this I
(said the indignant and baffled Patrick,)
where the stones are all fast and the dogs
are all loose I"

his moral perfection as the greatest good.
