Next, the old lllue tvaws are held up as
a myth. Such a thing as Iiuitauisui is
derided and frownedupon ; yet the say
ings and doings of the Puritans have pass
ed into history. They leave a staiu ami
a blot upon its brightest page. A single
reference Jtt ill suffice to show- how much
the world of toJ-daly is indebted to his
moral disteni perl thai held in thrall the
minds of a previous century : Voltaire,
speaking of tlie Puritans said "These Pu
ritans who were a kind of Calvinist, about
the year 1020, sougljt slielter in a part of
America,' "which has ! siuce been callwl
New Eugland. If tho Episcopals had
persecuted them in their former native
couutry, it was no more than tigers mak
ing war on bears. They carried into
America their saturnine and turbulent
disposition, and in every possible way
molested the peaceable Peunsylvanians
ou the first appearance of their prosper
ity." Chauncy 15urr,; oue of the ablest
writers of modern times, says: "So they
did the Dutch settlements of New York,
and they have continued to this da.Vj to be
anuoyers of other, people's prosperity, and
disturbers of the public peace. The late
terrible war is their work. The present
anarchy (referring to the time just after
the war) and uncivilization is their work.
The hate and violence that deprave pub
lic and private life is itheir work. Puri
tanism is the disease and anguish of our
uuhappy country. Puritanism iu the
pulpit, in the State-house, in the court
house, and everywhere else. Puritanism,
which hung witches, drow ned the Baptist,
burned Quakers, aiidlscurged humanity

That is what alls us Piuitauisin." This

Prohibition in Salisbury Township
So long as a man's conduct affects his

ever his actions interfere with the rights
of others, tlio othera.have a right to pro
test, and uuder legal; provisions, t re
move the obstructionami secure dama
ges. In the same way, if a man should
choose to drink himself drjink, without
making himself a nuissauce, or w itl.o.it
breaking the peace, or without leaviug
his family paupers on society, he could
claim to be let alone, j But it is a general
rulo that no man drinks without infring
ing upon the lights of others. And just
as ftir as his actions are calculated to in
terfere with tlieri 'lits of others, just so
far society has a right to interferer with
him and his drinking. !A late sober wri
ter' has written the following sensible
words: "An individual is justified iu
goiug to almost any lengths in self-protection.
, He-may maim, he may kill the
assassin, who seeks his life. This is not
simply a clear right,! it is a duty. It is
moreover one of the strongest instincts of
our nature."' ', r - ; ""
As with the individual so with society.
Society - owes to itself tho duty of . sel f
preservation ; nay more, society is iMiuml
to protect itself. "It must move through
forms of law, bnt it must lay the strong
hand of that law upon those who in any
wise seek to corrupt it. It may not only
puuish crime, but it may regulate those
things whose tendency is to lead tocrime.
It may, it dot deal with those things
which may simply involve physical in
jury to the citizen. tThast regulate the
alj ov.j)oisoriind exiosives ; it com-
pels railways- to- put-gate. at -street-crossings
; jit enacts statutes in regard to
passenger traffic in car or boat: When it
can do these things, it certainly can seek
to protect Itself in those things which not
only affect ;the life, but also the moral
pnrity of Its citizens.n. 4These ' thoughts
apply to tlie circulation of impure litera
ture, and licencioua pictures, through the
Uuited States mails. ; I t is properly made
a eual ofiense thus to attempt to corrupt
society at ts core, and the general moral
sens of tho country sustains the law that
pre Ven ts the font vain pireaj' of - the ci t ies
from placing their t impure i:pictures and
l-ooks in the hands of oar children. -But
if it is projierly maden penal offeuso t
suppress these t immoral practices,' Is if
not still more iiiiperatively the ' duty: of
society to,protect itself from a nalnt, that
not only semis a stream of impurity over
every plaiirnml valley io our land, but
also adds Jjto impurity, violence, poverty,
want, misery, auU often a; family of pau
pers for society to maintain 7 'Does not

not a year- since a quiet miuister tiding
. peaceably in to town one Saturday evening
was accostetl three times in a trade and
boisterous manner by intoxicated persons;
anil it was only last Satnrday evening
that a couple' of 'gentlemen ridiu2vinto
town were accosted in the same insulting
manner, by one who was iu company with
women, perhaps his wife and daughters,
who no doubt blushed for the poor be
sotted fellow. Similar jcexiees, frequent
ly occur on every; road leading from our
town, on the evening tof a public day.
Put that is not all. Scenes of violence
occur on our streets, and affrays happen,
in which the public must pay the costs,
because the disorderly oties are not able
to (to it. mi tins case every tax-payer
ought to have a voice in the matter, lie
cause every tax-payer has to shoulder his
part of the expense. And in case of mur
ders or homicides, which frequently re-
suit from1 these; drunken brawls, the
expense swells up to thousands of dollars.
Now, grant that you have no right to in
terfere with the drinking man, until he
has committed some overt art iirviolatiou
of law, society may tarn from this feature
of the casq to the mercantile feature. I To
reguiate irauejis j one -soi tijev principal

it has been found that any species of

that China had the inherent right to ex-fj
elude the ostium of the East Indiau Eug

outrage toitoree the vile drug on an
willing lteople, r
And now to show that the moral suse
of the whole community regards the traf
fic iu anient spirits as an evil, we have
only to remember that it : requires a license
to sell it. While any man may trade in.
candy audj jiotatoes, tobacco and calico,
without prpviiig a good character, the
law forbids all persons from retailing
spirituous liquors, except those who prove
a good moral character and pay iu a
heavy licebe fee. This shows tlmt so
ciety regards the unlimited side of liquors
as an evil, j It must be kept dowu, and
confined to a! lew places. It must be
hemmed in amjl its curse must be4arcuiu
scriled as! narrtiwly as mssible ! . The
very license law itself speaks 1n unerriug
tones, declaring that is an evil. The ou?
ly wonder that when society went half
w ay and restricted the matter, it did not
go all the way, ami prohibit the matter
Hut there is another feature that shows
what the sentiments of our peonle are
upon the subject. On election days the
bar-rooms 'fcire chsed up. It is deemed
right that when men are about to excr
cise the most sacred rights ot reeineu.
tin liar-keepers should not have the right
to tamper with their wits. Of course this
is right, is it t j it retailing spirits is a

their trade on ithese public days, when
they could make so much money I Poor

but the iiufortunate sahon-keeper uiust

Another 1 siguiticaut fact is that the
Legislature; readily agrees to prohibit the
sale of Honors i ill the neighborhood of
churches, 'academies, colleges, etc., aud
at the same time, makes it a misdeuieanor
to sell intoxicating liquors to minors.

boys must pot team to drink. Hut then

about sixty-five drinks in a gallon of
of whiskey. Buying the whiskey at one
dollar and ajlialt a gallon and selliugit at

five dollars of profit on each gallon. It
has been proposed that every mail should
make his wife his retailer, and set her up
in business by buying her a gallon of
whiskey ami a half gill measure, aud psiy
her ten cents a drink. In this case tlie

of only bccular treatment, and. tutt ai all on hypo
thetical assumption, The('-pu1ttu:U Inllaences" be

Deprecating the masquerade In public discussion,
1 offer mf convictions In my own name. From ex
perience and the ample opportunities of long, -wide
and varied observation, none can expatiate more ef
fectually and feelingly than myself on the evils pf
lu temperance ; but as mere personal, privity Is often
Inadmissible and always used sparingly In broad
debate, I wlli onJ present and Indorse the evidence
of two notables, the first is Charles Lamb ; he wrote
'The waters have gone over me : but out of the
black depths, couldl be heard, I would cry out to
all who have set foot la the perilous flood. Could
the youth, to whom the first drink Is delicious as the
opening siienes of Iffiv'or the OTtertng upon -some
newly dlscovoreJ paradise, look Into my desolation,
and be made to understand what a dreary thing It
Is to feel himself going tlown a- precipice with open
eyes and a passive will. Could he see my fevered
eye, feverish with last night's drinking, and know
my feverish longing for to-night's repetition of the
folly : Could he but feel the body of the death out of
which 1 cry, hourly with feebler outcry, to be iMlv
creJ, it were enough to make him dash the spark
ling beverage to the earth, in all the pride of Its
mantling temptation." The second Is from Keade
who say , 'XQ luannojf woman is safe who has once
formed the fatal tubtt of looking to "ardent spirits
for solace. While the world goes well, we will like
ly be temperate : but the habit Is built t the railroad
to destruction is made, the rails are laid down, the
station houses erected, and tlfe'traltrl on the line,
waiting only for the locomotive. Well, the first
great trouble or hopeless grief Is the locomotive ; It
comes to us, it grapples us, and away we go down
the track, we have been for years constructing, like
a flash of lightning to the devU." These two cita
tions amply cover that moderate drinking and con
firmed Inebriety which, mark youyeomes of the use
of ardent spirits lg, ; Crime is lojury to our fellow
men : there is no crime nor f-ilof It In the above.
These are the thrilling warnings of great and good
men who have Buffered, to those who have made no
false step or are reclalmable. They are not even,
like some drinkers, so veak and treacherous as to
shift the blame of their folly on the shoulders Of
There are tempters, but I have not found
them among the saloon keepers. They are "spong
ing'' drinkers and cunning, calculatingly sober 'men,
whose nefarious designs can only be accomplished
by first making their dupes drunk. Only men who
have suffered from the folly, of drin'.clngscanl)e. ef
fectual and sympathetic advisers to the free and the
enslaved.4 Common honesty is not Hi Tirtie, llitigh
It often appears so by contrast : an I honesty from
policy is roguery. Sobriety Is still less a virtue ; It
is negative : and he who vaunts of his sobriety seeks
to elevate himself by depressing fc& ?6etters."
There are nialiT gckxflncanlng poplet inre "More
Anon," who, it is presumable, have no practical
knowledge of drinking spirits excessively, but who
feci it incumbent upon them to essay the reforma
tion of drunkards. Their denunciatory maledictions
and- insulting abuse beget only hostility that fn
spires a deflant aggravation of the evil, llow stupid
to preach to the drunkard on the evils of intemper
ance ! Has he not an Infinitely keener sense of these
in his little linger, than you have in your whole,
slt-complaent and Botny noddles t Is not his habit

thoughtless people to confound the itl or practical
abiUty of a person, with his wishes and aspirations ;
and hence they Infer that baca use, a .drunkard rf

would not glv$, hi right hand, to Je "out of the

potent magnetism-of sympathy - that efficaciously
reaches his deplorable case and empowers his will.
The Hocus pocas making of bitches of "truly
goOvT.peoph-, a prext, would be Innocuous, and their
own affair, if it were not that they are, at once, en
joined to set about doing good for others. They
start out with two packs : one in front stuffed with
the faults of their neighbors, which they continual
ly see : the other, filled with their own is swung be
hind and their eyes nsver rest on it more than they
do on the back of their necks': And, as Adam Bede
says "their tongues are like the docks as run on
strikin', not to tell you the time o' the day, but be
cause there's summat wrong in their own inside."
These active, -tettVrtghteous citizens-are dubbed
"busy-bodie: their toirinweapo is, two wonLs,
"they say," which is a poisoned barb that will en

The most contemptible attribute of small minds is
the tove of meddling gossip and gratuitous inter
ference lathe business and affairs of others: but
they labor without thanks, talk without credit, 'live
without love, and die without pity, save that some
might say it is a pliy he (or she) dll'nt die sooner.
There Ls but one way to arrest drunkenness, which
is to stop the manufacture ot ardent Bplrtts except
in liboratdrtesfor th;eiclusivfe use of' druggists
and physt dans. The evils of drinking ardent spir

holds of the enemy are not reduced at once, but In
aetau, without once losing sight of his Qnal and
complete overthrow. There Is one stronghold thit
noujaoe at once assaulted and carried, - which is
the enormous duties on foreign wines and 11 juors.
If Satan himself were called on to Invent a system
calculated to create the greatest amount ot e U, he
could "not have devised one more efficient than the
enormous duties now levied n foreign wines and
liquors, ( It Is well known, that although spirits of
the finest quality will certainly intoxicate,' yet the
excitement Is comparatively harmless when con
trasted with the maddening effects of the poisonous
compounds now so generally sold as liquor. Hit
.was possible to eradicate Intemperance by making
liquor so costly as to be Inaccessible to all but the
wealthy, 6t even for much revenue accruing, there
would appear some reason for the heavy duties now
imposed; but as little is imported the amount of
, revenue derived does not pay tor the collecting, and
' the direct and palpable effect la to Introduce poison
ous substitutes which debase all who use them. I
point out only this one covert of the enemy, assured
that .it will be sufficiently suggestive. , As to the
worse than lneflicacy of "local option," I mast re
servo my "though xs, observations and "reliable au
thority," from all over the land, till next is sue, con
fining myself for the present to a few remarks on
that fearful exaggeration of It by the "female cru
saders'' a few yean since la many norihcrn towns.
Some good people supposed that "those raving
women" were mothers, wives, daughters and sl-ters
of drunkards. Now, with a fair knowledge of our
ommon nature, a clear vista of experience, even
the promptings of Intuition and a little calm reflec
tion, without any statement of facts, this gross de
lusion will be of o-irt tUsp;lled. Gentle women In
the above relationship to drunkards are, usually, of
sad, chastened spirit, who shrink, with Innate dell
caeyy from expoire ot this "skeleton in their clos
ets,"; and do all they can to conceal their shame anl
the weakness of their till loved ones. They were
wholly composed of that class of wornon denomlnai
ted '"strong minded," the termagant species of the
p.iarasaical "busy-body," who crave notoriety : and
who, throwing the mantle of sanctity around them,
"go for It," and exult, as "good templars and samar-itaas,-
in lifting the screen from their shrinking
neighbors' ganctnt sanctorums, (.' Itisan1 in
scrutable coincidence that, for some occult purpose,
every community is cursed with its quota ot such
styglan harpies, Just as every flower garden is In
fested with weeds. They drew on themselves very
general contempt, but as they were, t heir
outrages were tolerated until beyond endurance,
when law stepped In, collected claims for damages
and suppressed them.' such viragos, In discomfit
ure, send up the wall that "the trorld hates piety ! 1 !"
In touching "local option," I was obliged to brush
against the garments of these praying culprits, but
as I set out to treat Intemperance in a rational
manner, I will let the Revd Sidney Smith : reply ; to
these barnacles on true piety, lie siys, "It is not
true that the world hates piety. That modest and
unobtrusive piety Which Alls the heart with an hu
man charities, and makes a man gentle to others
anl severe to himself, is an object or universal love
a id veneration. But mankind h ite the !ust of pow
er when it U veiled under the g:irb of piety: thry
do not choose to be Insulted : they love to tear folly
and Impudence fronuhe altars which should only
be sanctuaries for tlie righteous and the good." I
must draw to a close. In my next. I w'll discuss
"local option :" and as It is assumed by its ad vocatea
that all non-drinkers are good, anl th.t all who
drink any are bad, even to empha;-l ed I I -u!t, I will
set up Rome defense of - those, sioioii; whom I
