"A VILLAINOUS BUSINESS.--The police in N.Y. have discovered a new scheme of the contemptible scoundrels who keep the dens of prostitution in that place. An agent is sent to Germany, who hires good-looking girls as servants for 'his brother in America,' and pays their passage out. When the unfortunate females arrive here, the brother, who has been duly notified of their departure, takes them in charge, and the girls are taken to vile dens of vice where they are destroyed. Two German girls named Elizabeth Lettsing and Maria OTTO, who had their passage paid out here by the gent or one of these men, were rescued by the police one day last week, and consigned to private families for help."

"This Institute has been established by a Society of Benevolence for such as the above named classes. Free benevolence does the work. Private interest has no claim whatever, as should be the case in such a work of mercy. The Asylum has two separate departments, one for the education of orphans and forsaken little ones; and the other for the reformation of such as are destitute of morals, spoiled and ruined children. Poor orphans and forsaken little ones find there a free home in health and sickness, until they can support themselves. Orphans in comfortable circumstances, who are brought to the Asylum by their friends, pay a reasonable amount. Neglected children are returned again, if claimed by their families, after their recovery. The latter class, too, will bear their own expenses, if they are able. Poor ones are free. Of what benefit such an institution will be to Jackson county is easily to be comprehended. 'Let Charity have its perfect work.' J. M. SCHUELLER, Agent"
