Whipping Women.— They are slightly in advance of. us in the United States in relation to the use of the lash, A correspondent of a New York contemporary remarks, with reference to a proposal for the restoration of the whipping, post for men who beat and otherwise maltreat their wives, that it is a good suggestion, for wife beating is a brutal practice. But he would also recommend the use of the same whipping post for women who willfully neglect their households and spend their time and their husbands’ earnings hi the many lager beer, saloons and the horrible bucket shops with which the city abounds. It is cold comfort, he truly comments; to a man coming home from a hard day’s work to find his wife drunk, his children neglected, and, perhaps, no supper, uyith a ready tongue adding insult tq injury.
