It Kill be remembered that in the Senate last week Mr. Howard gave notice of bis in tention to otler amendments to tlle laws against polygamy in Utah, rendering their provisions more effective, and their penalties more severe. Xow, with all due deference to the distinguished Senator, we are constrained to say that such a proceeding is both useless and absurd. That the condition of Mormon aftaiisis shocking, at once a disgrace to the country to-day, and a threatening source of danger for the future, is not to be denied.— There is in Utah no protection of person or property, no freedom of action, of speech, or of the press. tVhoever ventures thither sub jects himself to the worst of all conceivable tyrannies, that of an tgnorant and brutal sel fishness, sustained by the spirit of religious fa naticism. Every one will recollect the recent fate of Dr. Eobinson—a Maine man—shot dead in the streets of Salt Lake city for dar mg iu question me lmaiuoiuty or me prophet Brigham, and also the perfect impunity which has attended his murderers, and the open ap proval ol the crime expressed by the Mermen dignitaries. The latest intelligence that comes to us from this pi eclous community is, that they have at last succeeded, by dint of intol erance and petty persecutions, in compelling all the “Gentile” business firms in the city, to the number of twenty-three, to leave the ter ritory, at a sacrifice of twenty-five per cent, of their property there. It is hoped by this style of proceeding to drive out all who proless any allegiance to the United States, and to give the te'ritory exclusively to the Saints. Every day and every hour the laws and authority ot the United States are openly and Impudently set at defiance, and this is the state of things which it is proposed to cure by the enactment of"new legal lorms. These are not what the country wants. There are already laws on the statute book providing lor the punish ment of murder, of polygamy, and of those outrageous infringements of the rights of the citizen which are of daiiy occurrence in Utah. If these cannot be enforced, what is the use to enact more ? Why should Congress add to the list of these despised and openly defied provisions ? What we want is, not more laws, but an executive to enforce those already in existence. The government should put forth its hand in such a manner that these ignorant and Impudent fanatics may feel its power and fear it. The execution of the iaws in that territory should be intiusted to men who are not afraid to do, at the call of duty, very un popular things; and they should be supported by a force sufficient to command due respect for their authority. Mild measures have been tolerated somewhat too long in this matter. Morznonism is not only a toul barbarism, a great plague spot, showing hideously on the fair surface of our American civilization, but it assumes to erect itself as a barrier to our progress westward, and to hinder the develop ment ot a region in which the whole country has rights and interests. For this oitence it is not to be pardoned, and the country is fast losing patience with the inefficient, do-noth ing course which the govemmeut has thus far pursued toward it. The public temper will hardly be improved by seeing new laws placed upon the statute-book if they are to re main so completely a dead letter as those now in existence. Female*. It has recently been decided by a French court that to call a woman a “lemaie-' is to otter her an Insult, which renders the perso11 guilty of the outrage liable to prosecution and punishment under the law. We are hearti ly glad to hear it, and we wish it might be made an indictable offence in this country as well, it is the most offensive and the most essentially vulgar form of expression which has auy countenance among decent people, and stamps the person using it with the un mistakable mark of the second-rate in breed ing and culture. It is true, we do occasion ally hear it dropping carelessly from the lips of men who have a claim to be considered gentlemen, but with such it is one of the per nicious effects of bad example, and they must surely blush for the atrocity the moment they become aware that they have uttered it. If any one wishes to satisfy himself cf the real absurdity as well as the vulgarity of the usage, let him apply the eompelmentary word “male” in a similar manner to men. For in stance: “A carriage containing two males was coming down the sueet”—“An elderly male happened to be passing’’—“Three or or four young males were in the room!”—We nee 1 not go on. Anybody who should apply such an epithet to a man, to his face, would probably be knoeked down for his pains; and serve him right, too. Why not call a woman a woman, and have done with this silly non sense forever? We have been ipoved to these remarks by an article on the same topic which recently appeared in the Pall Mall Gazette, and as it expresses the truth of the matter rather point edly, we append an extract or two: There are, indeed, few more trustworthy tests of sound cultivation, and of a good style in talk and in writing, than in the manner in which women are described. Let anybody run over in bis mind tbe various turns ot plrrase which are now prevalent, aud he will leel at once that it is by no means an easy thing tor the uncultured author to steer clear ot something very like vulgarity in the choice of them, “'..lie sex,” “the lair sex,” “the gen tler sex,” the female sex,” “lemales,” “ladies,” ■‘the ladies,” “women,” “womat,” a man’s “good lady,” his “better half,”—here is a rich variety ot words of which it is no exaggera tion to say that almost each of them may be employed in sucli a manner as to suggest that the person who thus employs it is not a geu tleman,but a gent; or ihat if he is not alto gether and on all occasions a gent, he is by no means tree lforn such an amount of the gent ish element as will be certain to break out now and then in its unmistabable ugliness. Of tbe various words which are made to do duty lor tbe stmpfe word “ women,” they are the delight of everybody who wishes to talk fine, and to appear what be or she consideis to be “genteel.-’ Where well-bred men and women would speak of their companions as “men and women,” the gentish mind prefers to speak of “gentlemen and ladies.” These words are oiter>, too. the delight of that par ticularly odious sort ot men who look down upon women as a kind of Inferior animal, to be flattered to their faces as simpletons una ble to enter into rational conversation, and to be classed together in an indiscriminate lump as “the sex’’ or “the lemaie sex,” born to play a part antagonistic to that of the worthier race who are detestably described as their “lords.” As to the one word the correlative of which is now branded as forbidden in France, it is tbe very type and representative of the whole class, aud may be taken as expressing me spiiit of gentishness itself. The gent divides tbe human race, with the ex ception of the artisan and laboring class, in to two sections, gents and lemales. Aud it seems not at ail unlikely that, as it would be unquestionably an affronting aud insultin'7 thing to tell one who is really a gentleman that he is only a gent, so the more refined sensibilities of a French judge may have de tected in the term “female” something as attainting to the self-respect of all women simply as women, as is the imputation of geut islmess to an Englishman, simp,y as a man. Icr-Boating oil the Hu-Uen. The New York Tribune furnishes a lively account of the way in which this novel and exhilarating winter sport is carried on upon the Hudson river this season. The following extracts will give our leaders some idea of the boats, and of the manner in which they are used: Tbe hull of an iceboat is triangular in shape, the deck being ouly four or live inches from the surlace of the ice. Under the tor ward part are two stationary runners, the wider part of the triangle being tbe bow. Under the stern is a movable runner called the rudder. The balance of the vessel is rig ged exactly like a sloop, except that wire rig ging is brought into requisition. \V ell-regulat ed ice-boats have two sets ol runners, one lor smooth and UnJ other for rough ice. The standing rigging of the Snow Fluke, is made ot charcoal wire. The shoes on the runners average three leetin length with 12 or IS inches bcaiing. ica-boating, till within a year or two past has never been indulged in to any great ex tent, but a more exciting kind of winter amusement does not exist. Next to tbe tele graph wires, ice-boats have made the quickest tune on record. He who rides in one of them I 1 mast positively dress warm, or «uu"r create j ihe^mon pure- voyager In one of u j^ ' I craits delights to step on board liis vessel when a cracking nor’westeris blowing an.l the ttier momoier mar ks zero. You will find his leet 1 encased in heavy boots and the hoots encased in fur lined mocassins. He will have on heav< woollen under-elm hing, heavy pantaloons and vest, the latter covered with a heavy woolen suit shirt. Then comes his short pilot-ciodi coat, and over all the inevitable long oveicoal His ears will be covered with ihe patent n,ul flers, and on his head will rest a close-rigged , skull crp, with just enough front-piece to call it such. Add to the above comlorts two huge robes, one to lie down upon, and the other to ! cover himself up with, and the safliug master | of the ice-boat is ready tor a fifty-mile* scud to the windward. Ice-boats cost, from 610 to $000 each. When we mention the 610 boats we reler to those oi our school-boy days, built of wiLb three shilling skate runners, using bent j n , thrown away by carpenters. l or a sail i | we.‘lat recourse to the sheets and pillow-cases , at home, always retundng them however dir ty they may get. Thesfluo ice-boat is the one j of the present day, built triangular in shape I w Hi beautifully painted deck and molding ' wiie]nggmg, Arvo. 1 duek tor sails, brass cleets ' and blocks, full sets of colors, splendid spars I booms, bowsprits, polished steel runners bul falo robes, <ke. hack boat weighs from koo ; to 1,000 pounds, and all ice-boats are able to ! beat two points closer to the wind than sailin - vessels on water. uj 'iwiuu iuai uanger zx- ! ists iu consequence of the vessels going with such lightning velocity. Such is not the ia.e, ■ as nothing but extreme carelessness on the ! part o! the helmsman results in injuries.— i With a light breeze the vessels will not can y I over three men each to advantage. In a heavy | blow, however, they will hild six or eight.— What is meant by keeping them down is that | unless sufficient weight rests forward, the | bow, under which are two ruuners, will, when the vessel is strcck by a sudden and heavy liaw wind, rise high in the air, the stern run ner only resting upon the ice, while tho oud of the bowsprit stands at angle ol 46 degrees. In such a case the helmsman Joses ail control j ot his Vessel, as she does not at such times ' mind her heim, but slides along like lightning until the fierceness of the daw is expended. Another good reason for carrying heavy bal- I last during a high wind Is that it prevents the I vessel irom upsetting, although an upset is not particularly dangerous, even while tho vessel is dashing along at the late of more than a mile a minute. On smooth ice danger never ensues when such a mishap occurs, because 1 the occupants, as soon as they ieel tire wind- | ward side ot the vessel rise, sutler themselves to roll to the leeward, and in a moment they are sliding on tlreir bodies 40 or 60 leet away from the cralt, the unwilling excursionist thus linding an upset quite enjoyable. Should the vessel, however, turn over among ‘ ice hum mocks” or jagged pieces of ice, injurious re sults might follow. Tlic Coarse of the Oppositions in list- Prus sian Chamber*. It is interesting for every intelligent stu- ! dent of history in thii country to lollow at tentively the contest in the Prussian Cham b< rs. ft is not a mere strife of factions or of parti sans; there are great principles of government at the bottom ol it, which are the propelling mice of the two combatants; and it is a pity that some of the minor iaelions do not seem to comprehend this, and, if they do, that they disregard it irom motives of a selfish aud nar row* policy. The two principles to which we refer are the paramount royal authority, or monarehhm, on tho one side, and parliamentary govern ment, or constitutionalism, on tne other_ modern progress and political advancement at war with the traditions ot the past. The representatives of the conservative pas ty in the Prussian Chamber of Deputies iuiiy understand this and act accordingly; but, un fortunately, a number of the liberal represen tatives do not. Hence their many deteats up on important quest ions affecting the lutore in ternal polity ol the Kingdom. There is noth ing which the devotees ol the King s preroga tive dread more than the developmeut’ot democratic ideas. The Emperor Francis ci Austria was wont to say that he wanted not i wise men to rule over, but good and obecient subjects. The present King ot Prussia and his adherents have not as yet so far famil iarized themseivcs with the march of events ana the political developments oi the century i as to have this hiindbur soil »«.!! , icuiuveu from their eyes. True, they have made some concessions to the demands ol the people; but with these they are determined to stand aud go no further. The same spirit which, in 1847, induced King Frederick William of | Prussia to say that he could not permit a j written sheet of paper (meaning a Constitu tion) to Intrude itsell between him and Provi dence, is still the ruling spirit at Court, though 1 it mauifests itself now in less absolutist forms, I and is more caretul aud circumspect in its ut- i : terance. L pou the triumph and defeat of either the 1 one or the otberset of principles will in a great j measure depend the whole complexion ol the ] political luture of Germany, in the Southern j States, not yet included in the bonmsnified (this term lias but lately been coined in Eu- : 1 rope) German Confederacy, particularly in lia- i j den, Wurtemberg aud Bavaria, constitutional ' or ratber parliamentary government has been in lull, and we might auuost say unlrainmeled and unhindered, operation lor upwards ol ; thirty years, with occasional slight fluctuations I toward monarchism. In these States freedom i of the Press aud of political debate has been fully established, aud their regulation by law is characterized by a very liberal spirit—quite ! the reverse of wliat is daily witnessed in Prus I sia and in her annexed new provinces. The people in those States have accustomed them selves to comparative freedom of political J movement, and hence arises, in some degree, ' their aversion to the Prussian system of mili tary and bureaucratic centralization. A ery I | likely it was this tael—the impossibility oi I J subjecting the people of those States to the stiff rule of the Berlin systems—as much as the advice or, perhaps, even threat of Napole on, which induced King William aud Count Bisma-ck to stop half way iu their conquests, and limit the extension of then* power to the regions north of the river Main. But this caunot remain. I’he longings ol the people ol the whole country are for the political unity of the entire nation. Their songs, their prayers, their speeches, all give utterance to this sentiment. But it will de ; pend upon the course of ihe opposition in the Prussian Chambers whether this ierveut wish of the German people shall be soou realized or not at all. Perhaps Air. Eeo, a member of the revolutionary Frankiort Parliament ol lt>46, bit the nail on the head wueu he exclaimed ; that the unity of Germany wid not be achiev ed by the resolves or tho Parliament, bu t on the battle-field. The baltie-heids of last sum mer have done something toward this end, by breaking up the old inert Bund aud consolidat ing tb j Northern Slates into a new confedera cy under the lead ol Prussia. But the milita ry successes, to be permanent aud to become an actual aud lasting benelit to the people ol all Germany, must be fol owed by a course ol, policy more liberal in its guiding spirit and' more tending to tiie political elevation ol' the people than the >ne now pursued and insisted upon by the King, his advisers and the con servative party in Ptussia. It is for this reason that the debates and resolutions of the Prussian Chambers and the general course of the opposition members are not only interesting,but oi exceeding impor tance for the future recoustruction of uuhap py and distracted Germany. Should the ■ principle oi a truly representative Government succeed, where the people's Ireely elected Dep uties control the administration ot the Gov 1 emment, ai d public opinion controls them, in such e.erit tne opportunity will have arrived for Germany to remain distracted no longer. Were the conservative party to lie triumphant; were the principle ol the Kings supreme au thorlty—the principle of monarchism—to be hnnly aLd euduringly engrafted upon the po > litieaJ constitution ol that leading State; were, ] to fact, the liberal opposition to suecumo, then the reunion oi ail Gerutau stalls iuto one nationality would be lar removed into luturi ty, and more numerous and more bioody bat ■ tle-helds it would take to overcome the depfo rable results ot such a success of the conserva 1 tives.—AT. f. Times. An amusing instance of a detective being closely watched by two of the same fraternity has occured at Worcester, England. A local Journal says: “For several days Detectives Williams and Lamb were looking after a very res pert ably-dressed man, whom they bad particular ly noticed hanging about the Nation al Provincial Bank, The detectives’ real was rewarded by seeing the stranger come out of the bank, tear up a letter, and then give a boy two-pence for picking up the fragments. The 1 next day he was again watched, and the fact j of his meeting a friend from London further I excited the local detectives' suspicions, the latter imagining that the new-comer had arriv ed to be ’put up, to something. Upon this the | detectives had an interview with stranger >j0 1, whoso credentials, odd enough, proved him | to be a private detective trom London, also looking alter some one, and little thinking that his own movements had been so carefully : watched, and himself under surveillance.” | —It is said that the celebrated Luxor obelisk is abont to bo removed from the Place do la Concorde, Pans, and piaccd in the central ; c«nrt of the International Exhibition. It is : to l*e supplanted by an equestrian statue of the I Emperor. One wonders that even the egotism i of Napoleon Third should go so far as to lead him to suppose thax a statue of himself could I be a mouumebt more interesting to the French 1 ; people than this noble trophy of the victories i I of his mighty uncle. Conjugal Du lie*. Sir William Oobbeit,—alia* “Peter Powu pine,’'—in his “Hints to Young Men,”—an excellent work, bating the egotism of the au thor-urges the advantages of early mania ® by arguments of much practical common sense. His style is peculiar; and on this ac count the more attractive and impressive. In ills opinions upon this point he is joined by many other eminent writers. There can be no doubt that early marriages, where the at tar- tut nt la mutual and sincere, have the ad vantage or producing a greater Identity of character and feelings in llie panies, ^ cali be well cultivated In any subsequent life, when the habits become morehxed and unconquer able; and besides, by entering early upon the responsibilities of the married state, young people are more likely to become settled in some definite purpose of hie, and feel called upon, by necessity for exertion, which is al ways an indispensable condition of success and often of virtue. The history of connu bial connections shows that those families en joy the greatest degree of mutual happiness and succeed best in the aflairs of Lite, where the parents formed their connections in ear ly lile whilst every alieeiion was earnest and sincere, and whilst the yet somewhat un formed characters were not so confirmed and inflexible but that the husband and wife could iind it easy to become assimilated Into one mould. Much disparity in the age of hus band and wile is hazardous to a true union - There is something unnatural in such con nection. God never made the old to e^joy the society of young people as equals and helpmates. But it was not oat design to indite, here, an essay on eariy marriages. We had it in our mind, rather to discourse a little upon certain things that are necessary to maintain aud per oetuate happiness in the domestic sanctuary. And lirst, as to the husband. Home mast be lo him the central point of his attractions. Wherever he roams, whatever he is about, his heart must turn thither with an ardent affec tion and solicitude If he leels uneasy In the society of his family, one of two things may be set down as true:—either he is an unnat ural father, or he is unfortunate in a partner whose dispositions are calculated to discour age and alienate him. A man will, most like ly, spend his leisure hours where he can find the most agreeable companionship. If those horns ore not devoted to the society of ids his wife and home, but to the company of others, his wife will not ho long in detecting his inclinations; and wuen she sees herself neglected, she leels a dagger in her heart more cruel than steel. If you would make home a place of happiness, devote your spare hours tc the companionship of her who has sur rendered her all to you in the marriage cov enant. Never give her occasion to suspect that you delight more in the society of others Above all. spend not the hours which should be devoted to make home happy, in taverns, grop-shops or gaming-houses. We suppose all womcD will agree to the propriety of this advice; hut let them not for get that they too have an important duty to perform here, which is indispensable to that strength of attachment and to those affections which are to make home a heaven. It is wo man that weaves the cords which bind the heart of her husband to hersel' aud heme. In order lor the husband to find happiness in his own house, and hence, in older to make him desire this as the great object of his at fection, let him be treated with respect, court esy and kindness. When he enters the house, wearied by the cares and labors of Kte—a life devoted to the support ol his family—let him not be met with a churlish look, or with a re pulsive indifference. The world without is MlffififtHtij My. mCTC 19 tOO IHUCh Ot selfishness evinced in all the business relation r ot life; against such friendliness and sclbr. ness he is called constantly to contend; and this he does for the sake of his wile and little ones. But If on entering his house, he meets with no sympathy in the wile, if she mani fests little or no concern whether he has been successful or not, if she mokes no effort to re joice in his good fortunes or to cheer his de pressed spirit under failures, his very heart will sicken with disappointment and grief; aud it need not be a wonder it his ambition is destroyed, his efforts paralyzed and he seeks tor sympathy and converse somewhere else than at home. Woman is the sun of the do mestic circle. Much depends upon her wheth er the husband sha'l lind pleasure in his own castle, or whether he shall roam about for the needed “crumbs of comfort.” To secure her own happiness by making her husband delight in her society, she has a duty to perform which, if neglected, will make a hell of what was designed to be a heaven. True, the husband con do much by forbearance and by kiudly counsel to correct whatever of er rors in his partner tend to discourage and re pel him; but if his entreaties aud advice are met only by railing and abuse, he will give up in despair, and consider his Hie doomed to misery. Much ot the unhappiness that exists in famiUes might be prevented and cured, Ifboth husband aud wile would agree amongst them selves—and carefully abide by the agreement —never, under any provocation, to utter a re criminatory or unkind word. Or if one par ty, in u moment ot impatience, does speak harshly, let the other reply only la the tone and air of devoted kindness. If they cannot speak in the language of friendship, let them, lor the time being, keep sUent. We say “if they cannotbut it is a lamentable condition of domestic affairs when silence is the only way to prevent disputes aud quarrels. Hus baud and wile should converse together much and often, and each should strive to in troduce such topics of conversation as are known to be agreeable, and to carry on their part of it in such a manner as to please aud edity. There should be no secrets between bosom companions. Each should frankly he let into the wishes and designs of the other. It U a very serious thing to be connected with an other tor life; too many enter upon such a relation rashly and without due considera tion. But when It is entered into, let each party remember that he and she both have reciprocal duties to perform on which depend their success and happiness. Those duties will be always obvious. They wiU reldorn need a prompter where there is a willing mind. The circumstances of every day will suggest them; and if one party is unhappy in the other, let him or her lirst ask the ques tion—“may not the fault be miue f" and let I each bestow attention and care to remove the causes which are seen to contribute to the I discontent and unhappiness of the other.
