While thiough two ccntitiies they were

South. A powerful pecuniary Interest,
dally association with men of like belief,
political teachers heard with reverence,
slavery defended In pulpits of all denomina

classes. What wonder if in the inmost
heait of the Southern people there came to
bean overwhelming impression that what
we considered wrongs were lights, and
what wo wanted to correct, it was their
duty to defend from innovation ?
The doctrine that every man must judge
for himself concerning right and wrong,
may be disputed but ennnot be overthrown.
A man may form his opinions upon advice
or under the influence or upon the teacn

We all recognize the right of revolution.
But that can only be resorted to upon the

passed beyond the uncertain regions of be

righteousness would never bloom. The
right of revolution was one wo exercised in
1 77n. It Is one wo mav exercise again. We
may be right or wrong, fail or succeed, bo
rebels or revolutionists, but whenever the

worthless sewer built In the months of De

expenditure of over 8,000 on our high

63,000, and admitted in their report that
they had exceeded the receipts or appro

Nature bad hardly calculated on streets,

Alton sulleicd much from the lcccnt
rebellion from her proximity to the exci
ting scenes and hotly contested giounds.
The old penitentiary stands here yet that
swarmed with rebel soldier prisoncrs,and a
cemetery filled with Hie rebel dead is here,
all pointing to scenes top familiar and un
pleasant to recount.
The great redeeming feature of Alton is
the character of her people, the principal
part of her enterprising business
men being from the east, They are
solid business men, and me kind,
cultivated and social, and tako especial in
terest In their eastern cousins and friends,
and never fail to make them entirely at
Home and at ease.
Among Hie first of the names which
will bu recognized as of eastern origin aie
the Topping Hros., an extensive hardware
firm, who, in spite of all obstacles, by
their genial, affable, social qualities, com
bined with their skill and matchless In
tegrity, have won and now command the
patronage of a large section.
Another is that of Dr. Pierce, who is so
well known to many of Hie first men in
Vermont, from the Governor down, and
who takes frequent occasion and untold
pleasure in visiting his old acquaintances
and friends in Vermont. The doctor is not

Mr. Editor of the Jfemlit, the position o:

motion. I did make a motion for fifty
cents on a dollar, which was amended by
seventy-live cents, and voted down, and it
was amended again, I think, by sixty-live
