EMEtENT AMERICAN WOMEN. reed a year 1Q l&e west.' Young , should be encouraged to make their tomes in town. —in the promotion Of Mr. Frank Hooey we efevatton in the right direction, the MARY A. LIVERMORE. Perhaps the two most distinguished women New England ever produced were Miss Charlotte Cushman, whose portrait we reoently published, and Mrs. Mary A. Iiiveraore, which is given above. Mrs. Liveruiuro fa distinguished, and jcuttty, as a scholar, ^utbor, orator, and a humanitarian; and if the field were open flhe -would doubtless obtain eminence as a ateteswoman. If a woman were to be se- lected as President of the United States, there are thousands who wonld intuitively torn to Mary A. Livermore. ' Ami with all this, she is no less a wife sad mother, and from a long and varied experience knows how to keep house and perform all the duties of housewife with me ability. She is a humanitarian in its broadest and most practical sense. Her life has bean given to raising the fallen, helping line weak, befriending the friendless, and encouraging her fellow-men and fellow- women to a higher and nobler life. During the anti-slavery agitation just preceding the war, her voice and pen were ' iUtays on the side of the oppressed, and when the crisis came, few if any of the . noble women of the land rendered more effective servioe in caring for the army and providing for the wants of the sick and wounded soldiers than Mrs. Livermore. Possessed of remarkable executive abil- ity, her sphere was that of an organizer, ttful her field was a broad one, extending 'tftl over the north-west, where her lot was tt&n cast, while her influence was widely Mtt in the east. She may perhaps lie de- nominated the founder of the north-west- .«fcS«iitary Commission, and the origi- aator of the northwestern Sanitary Fair, > jttid *fc Chicago, with such great success, half a million of dollars for of suffering soldiers in camp ^-Md hospital. Although her duties were too wide-spread Si to permit her to act as nurse in the hos- - pJtals, a position she would have gladly iHed, she was frequently at the front of '< Va» army, even in range of the bullets of the enemy, inquiring into the needs of the • eoldiers. Through her instrumentality • many hospital abuses were corrected, and ft was doe largely to her instrumentality •; and her co-worker, Mrs. Hoge, that the XftTages of the scurvy were arrested in the camps in the valley of the Mississippi. . Visiting the front, and finding the true ^tuation, they hastened north, and ap- pealed for immediate relief in the form of Bofatooi and onions, the panacea for that t' Jttftlady, and soon boat and oar loads of those vegetables were moving southward. , Mary Ashton Bice was born in Boston, In 1821. At an early age she displayed •uoh wonderful ability as a scholar and writer that she attraoted wide spread at- tention in that neighborhood. She also > showed such power of oratory, that her ' father, a good Baptist deacon, often re- narked, \Mary if you had only been a boy, what a preacher yon wouldhave made!' Her school compositions were so much above, her years, that she was accused of . appropriating, or in plain language, steal- ing! But being put to the test, she was itotaod capable of writing on any subject • that her teachers might select. The girl mas the \mother of the woman,\ and for forty years \Mary now Mrs. Livermore, has been known widely as a forcible writer and eloquent speaker. Her husband, Rev. D. P. Livermore, is a clergyman of ability. Those who heard Mrs. Livermore's lec- ture in. Pittsburgh a few years ago pro- mounced it one of the best they had ever listened to from either man or woman. ' -, 4#J sooiety that procnre her services for a popular lecture will be sure to please the 'i. ptifeHo. NeXttoOough, no lecturer has '• had so long and wide demand. She has ?-•'*£ late years been engaged through the Itedpath Lyceum Bureau, of Boston, and ire presume that it still represents her. Ortter Supper. The J. S. Stone Post, G. A.

This was a pretty lively place for a small one on election day. bough we have only about half of the usual number of voters on account of dividing the town. We seem to have a rougher time than ever. Dunking and fighting seemed to be the order of the day. One man was pretty badly stabbed in the breast, and got several slight cuts about the head and face with a Jack knife. We are glad to say that politics had nothing to do with it. Too much nun.

No rum, though within a short distance of the lines, and a place where it was sold. And both jartles seemed to dothelrbestfor thelrrespectlve tickets in the most good natured and friendly manner. We rarely see so much courtesy shown by politicians of different parties to each other on election day as was exhibited in the third dis- trict of this town. The polls were held in Mr. Cannon's grist mill this year, but no doubt before another election a more appropriate place will be provided, as there Is too much enterprise In that Jttle burgh not to provide a good place to hold the polls. The mill was an excellent place, but of course it interfered with business to Mr. Can- non's cost. —Mr. John Fosburgh and Mrs. James Hyde, wldow-of the late James Bfyde, of Lyon Mountain, were married last Thursday.
