THE BROOKLYN RIOT.
We clip the following account of the
Sunday riot in Brooklyn from the Jiew
York Herald. It will be aeen that two
Irish companies, the Eiainett and the
Shields Guards, forming a portion of the
regiment, were called out by the Mayor,
and were on duty, instead of "shooting
dowii American citizens." Many Irish
men too were ia jhe police, but did their
duty manfully. A despatch to, the Wash
ington Star, dated "Monday, says that the
reported riot was a flash in .the pan, and
that tlie exaggeration' was-in all pro
bability to affect the municipal election
in the city of Washington. Tlie public
will soon begin to lose confidence in tel
egraphic agents, and the despatch for
warded by the agents of the" associated
press was so worded aa to give confirma
tion to the belief that it was intended to '
aid the Kuow-Nothing party in Wash
ington : South C'aroltnion.
As had been announced on Sunday
evening of last week, a preacher, attach
ed to the Primitive Methodist Church of
Bridge street, appeared upon the lot on

conflicting views in regard to what legislation
should be had upon thia subject, to unite tbc
friends of the cause upon something definite
and also with a hope to free this question from
the objection of politicians, in regard to the
effect it i to have upon the interest of the two
great political parties of the country.

necessary provisions to carry it intoeffect, viz : that
the County Courts be tlie licensing power, but
that they shall grant license to any one to sell

cure the observance of the law. (I have men

are well known and defined.)

The Law, in relation to the traffic in intoxi
cating liquors, has been enacted upon the prin
ciple, that the traffic is so full of danger and!
peril, that it should not be entrusted to all per
sona, but only M a certain class of persona. We
do not find it free to all as are all other branch
es of trade, but checked and guarded by a spe
cial permission or licence to those only who can
prove a good moral character. From this, it is
evident that it is assumed in the Law, that it is
to be a regulated evil, and the object it to keep
