Woman’s Convention in New York City

   Woman’s Convention.  The Woman’s Temperance Convention in New York City, on the 7th, was fully attended and admirably conducted.  A fine spirit pervaded the body itself, and all who heard its proceedings.   Speeches were made by Mrs. N. L. Fowler, Mrs. Amelia Bloomer, Rev. Miss Antoinette L. Brown, Miss Susan B. Anthony, and others. ……..Mr. Greeley closed the Convention with warm congratulations, that the fact was established that women might address a public assemblage, not only with propriety, but with force, and receive the most profound attention and respect.
