Some of the Women of New York must possess singular ideas of propriety. The Herald says that an ‘"estimable lady"’ wished to subscribe $500 to the Government loan, over a fictitious name, ‘"by which she was best known,"’ but finally subscribed her real name. Perhaps the lady's desire to assist Yankeedom was all that rendered her ‘"estimable."’ Another, a married lady, lent $600 in her maiden name. She said the money was her own, and she wished the certificates to be sent to her house, as she did not desire that her husband should know anything about it. Possibly her husband was a ‘"peace man."’
