INSTANCES OF HIGH CIVILISATION. Truly we have, as a people, reached a high point in refined civilisation when such facts as follows can be told of New York men and New York women. That they arc facts, and that they are not exaggerated we know (remarks the New York Post) :— Last week two young ladies were thrown from a light car- riage near the arsenal, and both were seriously hurt. One of them lay unconscious and apparently dead in the road where she was thrown; the other, blinded by blood from herforehcad, tried to do soinethingfor her companion. Two ladylike persons stepped from a carriage, went to the suf- ferers, looked a moment, and turned and drove away with- out a word. Ladies and gentlemen, riders and drivers, crowded by, but no one stopped. After some twenty minutes, a kind German physician came up and, with a gardener and two of the police, carried one and assisted the other into the arsenal, where they succeeded in restoring the one to life, if not to consciousness, and where their many wounds were carefully dressed. Of all who saw the accident not one offered any assistance. In the summer two young men, riding in a light waggen, in the Park, were thrown out. A gentleman drove up, and, after a considerable delay" one of the young men, who was hurt, was sent home In a car- riage. The Park was thronged with riders and drivers, but not one of the passers stopped to ask after or aid the man lying by the road. In the same month a carriage, in which were two Cuban ladies, was upset, the ladies thrown out and so injured as to be unable to rise. A gentleman I rom California, riding on horseback with his young daughter, left his horse, a spirited animal, to care for the sufferers. The daughter left her seat to secure her father's horse, and stood for more than half an hour at the roadside holding the horses. Hundreds of people rode by. Three men stopped at intervals and inquired of the young lady why she was- holding the horses. She replied that her father was assisting the injured ladies. No one offered to assist her. No one stopped to help the sufferers or the kind Californian.
