Ibe extraordinary vitality of the Austrian Empire was never more impressively ill^lra ted than by the tact that in spite of the mis fortunes of last summer, the Austrian credit is to-day on a better tooting than it has been before since 1851. For fifteen years the annu al deficit has been from twenty to three hun dred millions of dollars. When war was de clared last year taxation had done its utter most, borrowing was out of the question, and a paper currency was the only resource of the Empire. At the close of the war the public debt had nearly reached the sum of a billion and a half of dollars. It was under these circumstances that Baron Von Beust was put at the head of the ministry. In a lew weeks he reported the expenditure greater than the revenue. There was nothing strange about this part of the report; but Vou Beust pro ceeded to declare that the expemliture must lie reduced. He proposed to cut down one third of the aunual appropriations for the sup port of the Imperial (amily; to cut down al! the large salaries in like proportion; to abolish a great number of useless ottices. Ail of which, with the approval of the Emperor was punc tually done, bringing the expenditure for the current year considerably below the revenue. The Prime Minister next turned his attention to Hungary, an independent kingdom once, falling by inheritance to the Imperial family ruling over Austria. He found this great (state, with a population numbering not far from eleven millions, occupying the most fer tile soil iu Europe, but discontented, sullen, dangerous. He proposed to give the Hunga rians what they wanted—the constitution of 1848—and to govern them not in the Austrian Cabinet hut by a ministry of their own at Pesth or Presbm g, with an independent Hun garian Parliament. That too was done. The Hungarian Parliament met at Pesth, on Mon day, the 18th instant, and at last advices the loyal Hutigariaus were clamoring for the in stant coronation of Francis Joseph as their king. So Hungary reappears as a kingdom and uo longer a subject province. So the Hungarians have obtained again the advantages of local self-government. And Austria, though eject ed from the German Confederacy, is stronger to-day in tha support |of her|“loyal peoples” than she was a year ago. The Emperor has admitted to the councils of the renovated na tion some of the most active rebels of 1843.— One act of clemency yet remains. If Von Bcust, whose wisdom is so nobly repairing tin- errors of Metternich, can procure the re call of Kossuth and his family from the exile to which they have been condemned since the failure of the Hungarian revolt, the act will shed brighter lustre upon the adminis tration so brilliantly begun. Not one of the family has been permitted to return to the Austrian dominions. One ofKossnth’s sisters, Madame Kuttkal, went to Europe last year, hoping lor permission to visit her old home. Her application was re turned from Vicuna with a curt refusal, and she came back to the United States. Ma dame Kuttkal has three sons established in business in this country; one of them served through the war with distinction. Another sister, Madame Meszelenyi, died here soon after her arrival. Other members of the fam ily have settled here in various walks of lite. Kossuth himself, after bis visit to the United States in la'll went to London, remained there striving to maintain the oiganization of his party in Hungary so long as his funds last ud, then removed to Paris, and more recently to Turin, there to watch the struggle between Italy and Austria. His two sons were edu cated at the Polytechnic school in Paris, where they carried off some of the most val ued prizes, and have since entered upon pro fessional pursuits. Kossuth is a disappointed man. The cable tells ns he has issued from his retreat in Tu rin, a letter protesting against the arrange ment which has been made between Austria and Hungary. His passionate patriotism bw always claimed for his country absolute inde pendence. Hut it must not be forgotten that on this point a powerful party in Hungary has consistently and uniformly opposed him, seeking only the restoration of the ancient lights of Hungary as a member of the Em pire. The restoration of those rights brings an end to controversy. Sit litium finis.— There must be an end somewhere. Kossuth is no longer a man to be feared. He has grown prematurely old. His hair aod heard have been for several years as white as silver. His lorm, once so erect, is bowed by years and grief. His wife is dead. A powerless, solitary man, there is no longer a shadow o cause for denying to him and his race the sad privilege of revisiting the land for which they have sacriiiced so much. “Only i W«na!» Some people imagine that all woman was made lor is to scrub floors, do house work, take care of babies, sew on sliirt^buttons, and keep her person sufficiently tidy to make herself a fit ting plaything for the “lords of creation.” Mahomet denied to her a soul, and Brigham Young, while graciously permitting her to en ter heaven, dues so on the ground that she has not sufficient strength of mind to justily her damnation. But outside of Mohammedan and Mormon circles, even in the refined and gallant circles of Old and New England, there are not want ing those who imagine that woman is greatly the interior of man, especially in all that per tains to intellectual development and pur suits. They turn up their egotistical noses at the mention of a female M. D., pronounce the phrase “female college” with an unmis takable sneer, talk of unsexed women when they hear or read of a lady on the platform albeit she is there to plead for redress of grievances heaped upon her own sex, or in behalf of hospitals for the benefit of the blind, the insane or the idiotic; and talk of “blue stockings,” and scowl with malignant scorn at the thought of any woman presum ing to enter that “holy of holies,” the literary study or the editorial sanctum. They forget or never knew that some of our sweetest poetry has come of the inspiration of woman; that the battle field has been | robbed of many of its most terrible horrors by her angelic ministries; lhat the light of resplendent truth and love and philanthropy has penetrated the gloom of dungeons through the same gentle ministry; that she lias often exhibited a degree of courage, of heroism and of luoral strength that would cast masculine virtues tar into the shade. They torget such names as those of Florence Nightingale, Miss Dix and Grace Darling, l’ossihly they never heard ot Joan of Arc or Barbara Frietchie. And when they talk of recompense for toil expended, thought be stowed, taleut exhibited aud works of art produced, aud underrate the service thus ren dered because performed by ‘'only a woman," they seem to ignore the facts which we find stated by another, that Mrs. Stowe was at one time paid more per page than any writer on the Atlantic staff, that Anna Dickinson averages as much compensation per lecture as any man now in the field, that Ristori is paid more than any male actor, that Camilla Urso is the liest paid living violinist, and that the works ot art produced by Rosa Uonlieur and Harriet Hosmer command as high prices as similar works wrought out under mascu line superintendence. These depredators of woman except in the sphere of drudgery-lotally ignore the signs of the times,—patent to ordinal y o servers,—that the ranks ot honor into w u woman is forcing her way desp.te, prejud.ee and all opposition, are not y,t crowded, aud that more of her sex will yet walk therein; possibly to the exclusion of many of the pantaloon critics who would keep them in the shady background. As a man, of mature years and average in tellect,—as the rightful possessor of panta loons and other male attire,—we protest agaiust the egotism to which we have reler lei.am object to that exclusiveness which would crowd woman into the realm of mere drudgery or fashionable folly, as unworthy of our common manhood. 'lliere are hundreds ol employments, now crowded by those who Should follow the plow, wield the ax, fell the forests,aud convert the wilderness into fruit ful fields, that she could eugage in with hon or to herself and benelit to the race, and hanlv meu should hav e gallantry enough will ingly to vacate such places for her benelit.— I Her dextrous fingers eminently tit her for many such spheres of activity and usefulness, while her graceful address and patient spirit indicate her right to places now often filled by boorish young men and impertinent coxcombs. Without dogmatism or any disposition to be querulous, we would advise our whiskered triends, who are accustomed to depreciate fe male talent, and to underrate everything done by only a woman," to tbiuk of tbese tilings to read, mark and inwardly digest" them, aud not overlook the portentous signs of tho times—the signs of progress. And while never forgetting that it was man whom God created in 1 is own image, rememlier that It was no individual man or race who inherited this high creative distinction, and above all remember that the same many/hoai God thus created, made in his own image, he ?reated both male AND FEMALE, aud to the dual man of such high origin and such a birthright God gave ‘ dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the towl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth;" in other words, to man male and female, tho Crea tor has opened the vast field of nature for work, for achievement, for lofty effort, for no ble daring, for heroic deeds. HuJ Lum nail Nplurr. New Gloucester, March ”0. Mb. EniTOR: I have read with much inter est “Traxi's” recent let*cr on the subject of home manufactures. His suggestions are most excellent, and must exert a good influence in these days ot artificial education. I should like to learn where the Hand Loom aud Spinning Jenny are to be obtained, aud their cost. \ou will greatly oblige by auy in formation on the subject through your valued paper, A Subscriber. In the article on “Domestic Spinning aud Weaving,” to whieii our lady “Subscriber” al ludes, we spoke of certain improved Self-act ing Hand Looms and Spinning Jennies which are in quite common use in the Middle and Western Stales, but which have not found their way, to any considerable extent, mto Maine. They are manufactured in Cincin nati, Ohio, and the demand for them is so great in the West as to exhaust all the com pany can make, without seeking a market by the overland transportation to distant New England. We have never seen one of the Looms in operation here; but we have seen intelligent and reliable people trorn the Lake States, who reside in families which own and operate the machines, and they assure us that they are getting largely into use there, and give entire satisfaction to their possessors. Indeed,from what we hadjseen in the New Yoi k Tribune’s statements made in person, or by correspond! nee, in the “American Insti tute Farmers club,” we sometime since be came satisfied that the “Improved |Sclf-Actirg Hand Loom” is no humbug, but a valuable thing to be had iu the families of farmers, aud other industrial classes. The writer of this, addressed a letter to the Club, wishing that Board to procure and publish correct and re reliable information upon the subject. This called forth a letter from Capt. C. Garnett of Philadelphia, which was shortly alter publish ed in the Tribune, in which that gentleman says: “My sister-in-law, widowed by the war, uitli three fatherless children under ten years on her bauds, and United Stales Arsenal work failing, sought something surer as a rescue from laimuc than tailor “slop work.” And she found it iu the band-loom of Mendenhall. Herewith is seut our sample of what she can do on the loom—only one of many kinds ol work the loom will perform, by a process as simple as turning a grind-stoue, and live times less la borious. On the same piece of cotton warp, a woman may begin and weave off a three yard pattern of pautaloous cloth—plain, twilled, rib bed, tweed or speckled, auy color slie chooses to use for filling; then a coat pattern; alter that a fancy vest; next, a beuutiiul gray,pearl, drab, or blue traveling suit for herself, aud fin ish off with as substantial and beautiful a bal moral as was ever woven; and the changes from oue material to another, can he made in a single minute. The loom is -simple iu con struction, durable, ornamental, and occupies no more apart' room than a grand piano. A great variety both of woolen and cotton goods can be woven on the loom, and with no prev ious knowledge of weaving, any woman, or a girl of 15 can weave fri mi 1” to 50 yard, per day, according to quality. I am uot trying to advo cate for Mr. Mendenhall or auy one else having the loom for sale; but tbo loom is the thing that 150,000 farmers’ wives aud a great many other people ought to have in their houses, and so I give my testimony in its favor.” Knowing that tlie American Institute would not willingly leml its aid to humbug the pub lic, and havings desire to lesson the severity and increase the avails of female labor, we thought it proper to call the atteuf ion ui liun ilies to this labor-saving Hand Loom. But it seemed to us that the Loom should have if desired, a companion in the shape of a do mestic Spinning Jenny, to prepare the yarn lor the web. Accordingly we wrote to the company at Cincinnati to ascertain whether it could furnish a spinner to go with the loom; what the cost of either would be; when the machines could be procured; and requested to have sent us samples of the va rious kinds of cloth woven upou one of the looms. It may be of service to our Lady “Subscrib er,'’ and to others of our readers, who feel an interest in the matter, to see the Letter re ceived in reply to our request: “Dbar Sib:—Your favor of the 26th inst. is at hand aud contents uoteil. Wo enclose your samples and circular. The samples show for themselves. We saw Capt. Garnett’s letter and will only add that we have hundreds ot'a similar character from persons wlio have the luom in use. We know nothing more of Capt. Garnett only that he has one of the looms in use. Whatever he said was done voluntarily, without our knowledge or solicitation; and he said nothing but what we or any one who has the loom in use, would endorse. The loom has been lor several years before the public, aud has thoroughly proven its utility, durability and practicability, by actual use in tlie hauds ot thousaudsof families through the West and never failed to render satistaetion in a single case, to our knowledge. It has also proven its capacity to fully meet the wants of all rlasses for weaviug every variety ot cotton, wool and linen fabrics, from the coarsest to the Jiiust, as well as from the heaviest to tlie li'jhlctt quali ties. Its machinery is of the most simple, sub stantial, durable and reliable character, having no delicate parts requiring accute adjustment, aud has stnnd years of use without getting out of order. Iu putting it before the public, we only desire to place it upon its own true mer its, feeling confident that in ottering it we are offering a loom thus has ’ ecu reduced, simplifi ed and perfected, so that the ease of its opera tions, the rapid and faultless manner with which it does its work, will justly entitle it to tlie confidence of all who w ant looms. We have just completed a Wool Spinner, in tended as a companion for the loom. It spins, reels, doubles and twists, upon the same ma chine, without change of machinery. It spins ten or twenty threads at each draw, and spina from common cut rolls, or from rope, or end less rolls—the same as list'd in ftetory spinners The entire machine weighs only about fifty pounds when complete, is as simple and as easily managed as the old fashioned spinning wheels, and takes up little if any more room. It draws about four leet of thread from each j spiudle at each draw. We are now getting up circular etc., of spinner. \\ e would like very much to have it exten sively introduced into your Suite, as well as all the New lliuglaud States; hut they are >o dis tant from us that it is very expensive tor us to do business there, ami consequently we na e thus far made no etfort in that direction, U all we could do in the West. We have taken some Pa'ns- and bocn at some expense, to obtain all tt.e information in which we have supposed our readers might l,c interested, and now make them welcome to it. They can judge for themselves bow fur it is entitled to respect. The samples sent us em brace nine diflerent kinds of clotn,—wool, cot ton, and linen, coarse and line, and appear strong and handsome. The price of the Loom, with all its accompaniments, is $15(1—nut half tlic cost ol tuc piano, anil as Handsome as that and much more useful. It is claimed that a girl can soon earn from $3 to *10 per dayhy the use of it, and that it will weave as fast and as well as any Loom in a Factory.— We know not the price of the Spinner men tioned in the Company’s letter, but have writ ten to ascertain; also, to impure how we can get one ot the Looms or Spinners for the use of any one of our friends in Maine who may wish to possess either or both of the machines. Possibly this may leaiito an arrangement with some one, whereby the machines, if lound sat isfactory here, may he obtained hi Slall. 1 liey oiler to a purchaser, that an agent shall be sent, at the Company's expense, to his or her house, to set tiie Loom up, and explain its operation; and that if, after a lair trial, it tails to per onn as they hare represented, the agent shall take it away, and it shall pass as no sale. This is certainly very fair. They warrant every Loom. We confess we should like to see one in op eration here, and if any one of our readers w ould like to purchase one as above condi tioned, and wishes us to take measures to pro cure it for him or her, “Traxi” wjU take pleasure in forwarding the order. __ Tuaxi. ‘‘Delectable Cau." Slid1 is the not very classical phrase with which a (out column article is headed, in Kev. Air. Hunnicutts radical paper at Richmond V*.—the New Nation. The Ex,uni,or of that city, which has been toadying to the ne groes in order to get their votes, and patting them ailectionately and patronizingly upon the head, made a low,personal and malignant attack upon Air. H., applying this epithet to him, and Mr Hunnicutt gives hack blow for blow, in the most approved Hudihiastic style, “Proving his dootrlnos orthodox. By apostolic blows am knocks." The conclusion of the New Nation’s article is so spicy, and sounds so much like some of the Kev. gentleman’s speeches on the slump when he was iu this State, that we copy the last paragraph entire: The Examiner has been getting out this graphic .sketch ot our history for twelve long mouths. He has gone baek for more than twouty years, has engaged the services ot the sear/and scum, the Jay-end of ail creation to gather up something inlaiuoiis tociush out the delectable cuss. ’ He lias tired his big gnu the colored people have heard the roar, they have seen the smoke; aye, they have heard the braying, »hey have seen the long ears of the an imal. There is no lion to fear. The colored people know and understand for what it is all done aud said. The Examiner is a dirty, filthy slanderous, libelous sheet. The colored ciii zeus of Kiclunoud detest it. it is and always has boeu the enemy of all righteousness, truth und.juatice. We hold the Examiner iu utter contempt. His praise would blast the reputa tion of an augel from heaven. Heaven pities him,devils scorn turn, aud all good meu, white and colored, detest and shun him. Psuis( Away. We are all passing away; a fe w cares, a few joys, a tew smites, a few tears, and we have passed from this world forever. Like the flower—yesterday a bud, to-day a rose, and to-morrow withered and passed awav. Like the summer shower, which over shadows the glorious sun; first come the dark clouds; then the thunder, lightning and rain; and it passes away. So uiust our lives pass • away; ami shad they pats like the flower, bright and beautiful, or like the stoun clouds, dark and gloomy ? Temptations surround us on every hand, and if resisted they leave no sting liehind, and pass like us away. Let us so live, that when we pass away from this world, we shall lie prepared for that heavenly home, where there is no passing away. Habrt. fim. Muller aud Furl f'iahi r. Since the gross fling at Gen. Butler by Mr. Bingham about his failure to capture Fort Fisher, he being in command of the land force aud Commodore Porter of tho naval lorco de signed to operate against that place, Gen. B. lias received the following letter from a gentle man who in every respect is said to be reliable: New York, March 22,18fi7, 3fg Dear General: Apropos ot the personal debate in the Misuse yesterday, permit me to tell you what Col. Lamb of Fort Fisher rebel fame said to me in the office a few day# si nee. Perhaps you may have heard something to the same effect already, but I give it for what it is worth. Said Col. Lamb, ulmos' in these words: If I were a I'rieud of Gen. Butler I could tell him facts which would prove that he did perfectly right in not attacking Fort Fish er when be was before the place. My battery o< nineteen heavy guns so commanded the laud approach that not a man could have lived to reach my works. It was only afior the navy bad with beautiful precision dismounted gnu after gun in regular order, at the second attempt, leaving only one in place, that thea t tuckiug party bail any chance ot success. Gen. Butler has been much abused tor not accom plishing impossibillities." “Lam i is a modest, gentlemanly fellow, and is thoroughly reconstructed.” I think his opinion, as above given, is an hon est one. Yours respectfully. It is to be regretted that General Butler should have been betrayed into throwing Mrs. Surratt in tho loae of his assailant, lor it is quite probable Mr. Bingham, as Assistant Judge Advocate in the assassination trials, did no more than his duty, and it will require a great deal of offsetting testimony to make tho lieople behove that the militaay court and the President condemned a woman to tho scaffold without evidence ot guilt. The testi mony may have been informal in some re spects, aud capable of being tortured and twisted by a sharp lawyer, but that she was guilty aud suffered the righteous retribution of an offended law, we think admits of little doubt. At any rate, Gen. Butler has done much, to lessen public esteem for liis course in Congress, in relation to this matter, in order to deal a hard blow at one who had provoked him.— While bis Fort F'isher fame may have received some burnishing, Ids laurels in other respects, we fear, have been somewhat needlessly faded. IlM ibk Talk. That the defeated, humiliated, and, to a large extent ruined communities of the South should feel a degree ol bitter animosity toward all tho adherents, Northern and Southern, of the cause which overthrew theirs, is certainly not strange; nor is it to be wondered at that having by vir tue of superior numbers, the control of every thing relating to social life, they should re venge tin ir own political defeat by a social ex clusiveness of the bitterest kind. Thut such has been the case almost everywhere among them is well known, and it has thus far proved one of the most serious obstacles to the rehab ilitation of many communities in the prosperi ty which ouce belonged to them. The wiser and more clear-sighted southerners might oall eagerly for northern capital and enterprise uni) thrift to come and aid them, in building up again their war-wasted country; but those who accepted the invitation have in a majori ty of cases found themselves wholly excluded from all social intercourse with the people among whom they have goue. They have been made to feel themselves ostracised, isolated, and so after a time they have wearied of the re pellant atmosphere around them, and sought more congenial homes. AU this might he ex tremely natural on the part of the southern people, but it was at the same time very fool ish. They could not afford to drive away tho help they so much needed. It is a satisfaction to their best friends to know that they are be ginning to be aware of the folly of their course, aud that there is consequently some hope of amendment. Fluke's Bulletin, an able paper published at Galveston, Texas, recently con tained an article strongly condemning this spir it of viudietive exclusiveness, and pointing out some of the evils which result from it. lhat paper says: Disguise the fact as we may. it is uue tnat in many circles neither wealm. mahhood, cour age, eminent piety, erud.uou, high-toned mor ality, brilliant accomplishments, nor personal beafnv can open the charmed door o. society, provided there is coupled with these qualities a I.ersiateiit aud ever steadfast loyalty to the Government. * * flow can wo ask political equality with those ‘.o whom we refuse social fraternity? Can we hope that tho people in power will believe us loyal when fi delity to the Conlederuty atones ior all man ner of social iuiquiiy, and loyalty to the Union is the unpardonable sin? We may mean to disc harge every obligation with lid. lily, but while there is such rancor in our breasts peo ple will not believe us. We must expect a great deal of heart-burning at the close of a gigantic civil war. But others have the right toixpect that we shall seek to amend our tem pers as well as our actious. Men of business, whose daily avocations three them to mix aud mingle with others, soon have their laiciit loy alty rubbed into an active principle. We sel dom Hud them among the exclusives. But there is another class in every community largely composed ol ladies and clergymen, who are not forced into actual ooutaet, save as they choose. These indulge iu all tins mawkish exclusiveness. Many a lonesome parlor might be tilled brimming full of merriment ..ml hap piness but for this silly prejudice.
