We desire to call the attention of those who still prefer a piano of the square form to STEIN WAY’S SQUARE GRANDS, with the new patented ** Duplex Scale.** This improvement adds immensely both to the power and even ness of tone, and makes the STEINWAY SQUARE GRAND Incomparably superior to any other Square Plano. STEINWAYS' SQUARES Surpass tho Square Piano* of *ll other manufacturer* la all the essentials of a superior Instrument. STEINWAYS’ NEW PARLOR GRAND Is another evidence of the extraordinary value of the * * Patent Duplex Soale.*' It has all the power, volume, and effectiveness of the former fall grand, while It is but 6 feet 8 Inches long, precisely the length of tha Square Piano,baa the farther advantage of tho natural and graceful form that no Square Piano can claim, while the price la within SSO of Steinways* highest priced Square Piano. STEINWAYS' Superb Uprights Are the moct desirable Parlor Planes now made. Their volume of tone la of the most exquisite musical charac ter—pure, sympathetic, and perfectly pliable; while their capacity for long standing in tone is most remarkable, ex* celling even the “Grand" and * ‘ Square*. ” which hither to hare stood without a rival in this respect. They are the only “ Uprights "that hare stood the test of time and the sererest of trials, and can therefore be conscientiously recommended.

THE MAT ANN It used to be the custom for all the “isms'* and ologies ”in tho country to send delegates to New York every year in Hay, to celebrate their respective anniversaries, and discuss such ques tions as they considered of vital importance to their and the nation's prosperity. During tho holding of these grand pow-wows, tho doora of the hospitable Knickerbockers wfero thrown open, and all who came duly accredited, either as participants or observers, received a warm and hearty welcome. The different. halls and churches of the city were crowded day after day with people loyal to the doctrines advocated, oc attracted by the fame of tho speakers, or tho the novelty of the theories' they ad vanced. The newspapers, too, vied with each other in giving ex tended reports of the sayings and doings of tho distinguished strangers ; for, as they were gen erally representative men and women of tho different organizations, their speeches woro of the most pestilent and incendiary character, as well as of tho mildest and moat conservative type, and were eagerly sought after by all class es. But our tastes and habits change. . The ways of our fathers are not our ways. Tha things that interested them possess no attrac tions for na. And the Hay anniversaries are be coming .rapidly obsolete. Those who attend them are permitted to go quietly to their hotels and boarding-houses. Tho general public cares nothing about them, and the newspapers dispose of them in a few brief paragraphs, which the average reader scarcely notices. This year the ripple made upon the social current of New York by the frnfln-r of anniversary delegates was so .alight as not to be perceptible. Even those gal lant combatants for citizenship and the ballot. THE WOMAN-SXJPPBAOE POLKS, failed to bold their annual conventions. To be Bare, Susan B. Anthony, and a few of the irre pressibles who take considerable stock in her. a email meeting at Apollo Hall one day, and adopted a series of resolutions denouncing Grant and tbo Republican party for having deceived them. But the Boston wing, in which are all the ablest men and women of the cause, for some reason failed to favor us with a visit. And, when 1 looked in on the handful of tame and spiritless ds.m«nla gathered about Susan, and compared them with the earnest, hopeful crowds that thronged the platforms at both. Apollo and Steinway three years ago, when the two wings were holding conventions at the same time, I failed to realize that any material progress had been since then in the woman-suffrage movement. At .that time, Henry Ward Beecher, George William Curtis, T. W. Higginson, Mar? A. Livermore, Julia Ward Howe, Grace Grcon wood, and dozens of others almost as distin guished, made able and eloquent speeches at Steinway; while, at Apollo Hail, Victoria Wood hull, Theodore Tilton, Elizabeth Cady Stan ton, Susan B. Anthony, and a 'score of lesser earnest and forcible addresses. Last fall, both wings struck hands in opposing _ the Liberal movement, and, with the exception of Anna Dickinson, who fought bravely for Greeley, every prominent toUring or writing woman in the coun try did her level beat to secure the election of Grant; and it may be they so completely ex hausted themselves by their efforts, and aro so thoroughly disgusted with the object of their idolatry for haring, since his election, gone back on them, that their ardor for the enfranchise ment of woman has somewhat abated. If. tbs cause has made headway lately, there is cortainlj no evidence of the fact by an increase of woman suffrage conventions, or by a prosperous growth of WOMAS-ST7FTBAOB OBQAKB. Three or four years ago, the Revolvlion, Wood hull & Clafiin's Weekly, and the Woman s Jour nal were exciting considerable interest, and cre ating quite a sensation in the journalistic hold. But how is it to-day ? Let ns examine their po sition and standing. The Revolution was started by Mina Anthony and Mrs. Stanton, and was for a time edited by them; but, as neither of them possessed any editorial qualifications, it grew so intensely stupid under their control that they eventually discovered they were not calculated to run a paper, and retired from the manage ment. Phebe Cary, who had no taste for the »—v w& a then, against her will, induced to ac cept the editorship; but, after a few months', trial, she relinquished it, and Mrs. Laura Curtis Bullard tried her hand at edit ing. Under the plea of ill-health, she, too, soon retired, and the paper became the property of the publishers of the Liberal Christian, who per suaded the Bev. W. T. Clark, at present the lead ing editorial writer of the Graphic, to become ite editor. Clark is a brilliant writer, and knows how to make a readable paper, but he found in a short time that it was impossible to infuse now life into the drooping Revolution, and more than a year ago it ceased to exist. WoodhuH & Claf- Un's Weekly was always an advocate of freo-love, spiritualism, and nastiness; but, after the death of the Revolution, Mies Anthony, and a number of the women who wore ite most zealous patrons, tallied around Mrs. Woodhnll, put her promi nently forward as a leader of their wing of tho woman’s suffrage movement, and . for a time gave her Weekly ■ some promi nence and respectability. A rumpus, how ever, soon occurred in the camp; Woodhnll and Claflin incurred the displeasure of Susan and her set, and they withdrew their support from the Weekly, which has again relapsed into tha organ of freo-love, pure and simple; and, since its publication of thsßeecher-Tilton scandal, for which its publishers were arrested and imprison ed, baa had so many obstacles to contend against that it barely manages to exist. The Woman's Journal, for a year or more after its removal from Chicago to Boston, was edited quite ably by Mary A. Livermore; but, when she retired from the position, a committee was appointed to edit it, and, as committees always do, they have edited in a very feeble manner, —so feeble, in fact, that few readers take any interest in it. i judge its circulation must be quite limited, too, for I have inquired for it at nearly all the news paper and periodical depots in New York, and have never succeeded in finding a copy of it for sale at any of them. t. k nv.T.HTrcarßS appear, however, to be on the increase; for, a fewdays ago, I counted the names of seventeen who are announced as ready to hold forth this winter on various subjects, in any part of the country where their services may bo required. Many of them are names new to me, but I nope they may all succeed in obtaining profitable en- I fear some of them, though, will The public is becoming so ac customed to women-lectnrers that all the novelty of the thing is worn away, and they, like men lecturers, fail to draw unless they have some thing to say.

She had gained considerable notoriety by her war upon “ the legrdrama." and, for a year or two, had all the engagements she could* nil at $l5O a night. As she is a train ed actress, her lectures are committed to memory, and delivered in a theatrical manner, without reference to her notes, and thus create a more favorable impression upon an audience than if tamely read; but, as they contain little beauty of style or originality of thought, Tew persons care to listen tc her a second time, and she has ceased to he popular. 1 believe she intends retimg from the platform this spring, and going to Paris for a few years; but her success has been so indifferent the past winter that she would have been compelled to retire, whether she in*
