[Fro the Record.
Mr. Editor: Having, the morals
and good order of our town at heart,
and having watched jour walk and
conduct for several years, and be
lieving that you would permit mo
the use of the columns of the lie
ford, which has so manfully main
tained its character as an indepen
dent journal, I thought I could in
no better way lay tho matters now
operating injuriously to tho mor
als, order, peace, and prosperity of
our town and citizens before our
town council, and all lovers of good
morals, than to send you a series of
communications "touching on the
evils in our midst:
First, wo have five drinking sa
loons in town. These are open day
and night, whisky drinking being
the chief indulgence, accompanied
by cards, tenpins and billiard play
ing. Being a wife and motherland
having a husband around whom all
my hopes of happiness once cen
tered, and who has now acquired
habits of intemperance ; and the
fear -of that being, whom of all
others I adore, becoming a con
firmed drunkard, is my only, and in
tho opinion of every right-minded
man and woman, will be sufficient
apology for my appearing in print,
to try, if possible, to assist in re
forming these evils, which are drag
ing our best men on to destruction
and their families to ruin.
'"Wo are told that we have laws
that would stop all these evils, if
cnlorced. Vhy are they not en
forced ? They are enforced in oth
er places. The answer is plain.
It is because our lawyers, clerks,
and officers, and others calling
themselves gentlemen, are the pat
rons of theso sinks of iniquity and
hell-holes, thus netting tho exam
ple to our young men aijd boys of
debauchery and idleness. How
many hours in each day of the
week are our old and young men
engaged in these useless games of
tenpins and billiards? Uow many
plav all night, and, on Salbath
mornings, until two or throe o'
clock ? tmis desecrating God's holy
day and annoying their nighbors,
so a3 to injure their feelings and
disturb their night's repose. Must
this thing continue? This is the
question for our citizens to answer.
It can and should be stopped at
onco. Let the Council meet and
pass ordinances, and let our offic
ers see to enforcing them. Let the
State laws be put in force, and
peace and happiness once more be
restored in our tow n.

The Dissolution of the Republican
We again call attention to the
following extract from the letter of
"Wendell Phillips" to the "New-
ork Anti-slavery Standard,' which
letter we published yesterday:
The seeds of dissolutionjhave been sown
in the Republican party. lVrliajm.l should
say that the party always contained the
elements ol its own destruction and that
it only required the provocative circum
stances to develop them. At any rate the
development is visible to the common
eye, as it has long been seen by those whose
habits of close observation have given to
their mental vUion u clear insight.
Whatever we may think of Wen
dell Phillips, he has always, in the
past, proved a good political propl
et. When the Republican partv
was organized, he being for a dis
solution of the Union,hailed it with
joy. He declared that, as a pure
conti'nnil T?iittr if utiio (Vim I 1
Uon purposesthe first "crack in
the iceberg." So it proved. Ilav-
iug predicted what it would even
ually effect, he now sees, and does
not hesitate to declare, that it is in
process of destruction that 'the
seeds ol'. destruction have been
sown, and that circumstances are
rapidly developing, them." Let
Democrats and conservative men
every-where take heart and cour
age. The monstrous organization
that has so tyrannized over the
country is falling to pieces, and its
baneful star will go down i.he poli
tical horizon as rapidly as it rose.
Again,, we repeat, - the emigration
into the Democratic party has com
menced, and is" proceeding at a

A noble ship was nearing home
after a long voyage. On her clean
white deck stood many a rough,
weather-beaten sailor,looking anx
iously at the white cliffs of his na
tive land, and a smile of joy passed
over his sunburnt face at the pleas
ing thought, "we shall bo at home
to-morrow 1" And there were old
men who had not seen their child
hood's homo for long, long years,
and tears stood in their eyes as they
looked at the distant shores and
said, "wc shall land to-morrow !"
And there,too,was a mother lifting
up her little one to look at the far
oS land, and whispering, "we shall
be at home to-morrow !"
But their to-morrow never came.
That evening the gentle breeze be
came a furious gale; the rippling
waves became foaming angry bil
lows ; the sails were split into rib
bons; the rudder was broken ; the
vessel became unmanageable ; she
drifted upon tho terrible quick
sands, became a wreck, and all on
board perished. .-
And are not many ol us expect

over us forever?

The Democracy Growing Stronger
and the Radicals Weaker.
That leading Radical paper, tho
Mackacheek Press, says :
"The late disastrous result in
Connecticut should be taken as a
lesson by the Union organization.
We doubt, however, whether we
will have either wisdom or patience
to appreciate what is taught us.
We drive blindly on, and have time
for lamentation only at a time when
lamentations como too late.
"The Democracy grows stronger
and we weakei, as the work goes
on. Weary of class legislation,
that is only another name for le
galized robbery, weary of the plat
itudes and owls, weary, 0 1 so
weary, of thieves, knaves and cow
ards, our forces fall out, and our
army gets more and more demoral
ized. "This is tho Connecticut lesson.
Will we learn? It i3 possible for
us to waken1 up from our after-dinner
stupidity, shake off the asses,
owls and thieves, and summon the
people to real work over real issues?
Let us hope so."
An Item Which Every Man Should
probably all of us met
with instances in which a word
heedlessly spoken against the re
putation of a female has been mag
nilied by. malicious minds until the
cloud has been dark enough to
overshadow her whole existence.
To those who aro accustomed, not
necessarily from bad motives, but
from thoughtlessness to -speak
lightly of ladies, we recommend
these "hints" as worthy of consid
eration: Never use a lady's name in an
improper place,at an improper time
or in mixed company. Never make
assertions about her that you think
untrue, or allusions that you feel
she herself would blush to hear.
When you meet with men who do
not scruple to mako use of a wo
man's name in a reckless and un
principled manner, shun them, for
they are the very worst members
of the community men lost to eve
ry sense ot honor, every feeling of
humanity. JUany a go od and wor
thy woman's character has been
forever ruined and heait broken by
alio manufactured by some villain,
and repeated where it should not
havo been, and in the presence of
thoso whose little judgment could
not deter them from circulating the
foul and bragging report. A slan
der is soon propagated, and the
smallest thing derogatory to a wo
man's character will fly on the
wings of the wind, and magnify as
it circulates until its monstrous
weight crushes the poor unconsci
ous victim Respect tho name of
woman, lor your mother and sisters
are women; and as you would have
their fair name untarnished, and
their lives unembittered by the
slanderer's biting tongue, heed the
ill that your own lvords may bring
upon the mother, the sister, or the
wife of some fellow creature.

Narrow Escape at a School Ex
hibition. At the annual Public
School Exhibition at the Methodist
Church, Port Washington, Long
Island, on Wednesday last, the
children and their friends in atten
dance, had a narrow escape from
fearful death to some and injury to
many. The church was filled to
overflowing, and at the close of the
interesting exercises, before the au
dience had left, and while the school
was still seated on the stage, two
large kerosene lamps by accident
were overturned and broken. The
oil instantaneouly took fire, and at
once wrapped a good portion ot
the stage in flames, together with
the flags used in the decoration.
The danger was imminent since the
fire was among the scholars, and to
add to the danger, the girls were
dressed in clothing of light mater
ial. The panic among the pupils,
as weh as the audience, was very
great: The doors becoming block
ed, the scholars, and many in the
audience, had to be taken from the
windows, and fortunately no lives
were lost. The teahers and pupils
escaped without serious injury, al
though a number were badly bruis
ed by the filling of the timbers us
ed in the erection of the stage. The
fire was extinguished before much
damage was done to the church.
