THE ENFRANCHISEMENT OF WOMEN. TO THE EDITOR OF "THE CAMBRIAN." SIR,—Seeing in your paper A weekly oauserie by Silas Hockings on the above important re. quirement of this age-now growing old with the obsolete cry of refusing women full privileges in all that pertains to men, politically, iiocially, parliamentary, and domestically, whether written against by an expert like S. Hockinga or by any other like-minded great man-I desire to say they have no real fundamental argument to put forth, but simply old, antiquated, hackneyed phrases, ..h me female brain, HimUler AM—n physically," "no capacity for business," &c. &c. All these men have nothing to do with ous. toms and prejudices which have "so long held sway." Their business is to administer justice to the people as far as they conscientiously see, and it seems absurd to include woman in their law-making and law-abiding country and have no voice, no vote in making these laws. She is as eminently fitted to obey and break just as men can and will do. That the majority of women" don't care two straws for the fran. chise is a libel, and ought to be included with all the foregoing false disqualiifcations. The time I has come when duty and justice demand the en. franchisement of "The Uitlandera" of Great Britain, regardless of sex. 'Tis opportunity women lack, not ability, seeing that many men voters are mere dolts in a community, just all women are some of our greatest heroines and philanthropists, who neglected not their homes,- children, and husbands, though wearily handi- capped by custom and the worlld's stigma, being outside the pale of all the privileges of the male party traditions, although born of the same parents and reared under the same roof Woman's administrative power has already bee tested, and it will take the oombined efforts of male and female tact and ability to uplift the world to Christ for peace, temperance and purity in every form.—Yours, &c., A ULTLANDEB IN THIS COUNTRY. +
