VThj is Kurier Committed?
I feel greatly surprised to think I
have h-'en called oa by as rcscf table
a ctimiiiunity as this to answer the
question, Win- is miiiilercommitteil in
our land? e can see every 'lay, the
contact f murder, which i
sold and drunk by our good citizens.
When you are handling the danger
ous glas, then you are handling the
weaitou to commit murder. I should
jut ask you to vis;t cur State prisons,
and ask two-thirds f the convicts the
cause of their It ing there'.' They will
tell you whi.-kcy, and yet a man wib
s.-iy, 1 have a right to drink; which is
as great a sin as murder; lor he is on
ly murdering himself. Whiky i
the cause of a man's committing sif
fide, :nd makes hint & lunatic, No
man is a free man, unless lie ia frte
from trou hie, pain, mid sorroy. In
temperance and whiskey is the cause
of all these diseases. And yet, w hy
will you murder yourselr. while your
family is stripped of all luxuries of life.
Can you lie a frt-e and happy man
when you hear the cries of your lit
tle children from hunger mid cold?
'an you murder them and drink? I
w ill iipieal to you, in the name of the
great Jod that made you, will you
give this one thought Ix-fore too late?
.Every man that drinks is hound to
acknowledge he is living an m'tilicial
life; and can you commit a greater sin
than to make a mock of the (iod that
made you? I should like to say a few
words to the meinhcrs of the ditlerent
churches: there are some of you selling
the dangerous weapon to "the fallen
man. (iod Almighty haseertainly par
doned you of all your sins; though you
show to me you yet hold the worst sin
a man could he guilty of; cursed is
he that putteth the Uitile to his neigh
bor's lips; and I hoieyou will all quit
selling and drinking liefore you are all
cursed; and to think how many or
phans and widows you are tilling the
country with, and to think a good
eitien will administer a dose of poison
to his fellow-man ! Jf there is any
man who wishes to join any church
and he is not free from drinking whis
key, I would say from exjierienoe for
him never to join, until the Iord has
pardoned him of the worst sin he was
ever guilty of, and I would just say,
you could not stay long without steal
ing the JSible from the pulpit, if the
whiskey is as mean as has Injt-n sold
here. I will say, whiskey made me,
while I was under the inlliieiice of it,
a had and lioisterous man; and it is
I Ku nd to treat others as such. Intem
perance will lead you all to lie beguiled
by the ferieiit, like Old Mother Eve,
in the garden of Eden.
I am creditably informed, drinking
of whiskey brings to your sight every
reptile that crawls, to prey on your
drunken Inxly in imigination; and yet,
you will jut yourself lieiieath si brute,
when you drink and drive them from
their Ixtls and take charge. (), for a
shame on the human race! I would
just ask you to come to the (iood Tem
plars lodge, av here you can be benetit
ed and led to morality; and morality
will lead you tochristianity,aiid Chris
tianity will make you a good father
ni k I good husband; and where you see
a good husband, you see a good wife,
and where you see a good wife, you
see good children. All of this grows
from (iood Templars. I do feel proud
to say to the good citizens, 1 feel un
der many obligations to them for their
advieeto me to quit the drunkard's
glass. I can meet them with a smile
and a proud hope for a letter time for
the future. Hoping this may please
all whom it will meet,
I am your sober citizen forever,
I exj,ected to have written you long
liefore this, expressive of my extreme
satisfaction ol the proceedings of the
convention. We regret very much
our inability to have attended, hut are
K-rfeetly delighted to see you contin
ued at the head of the temperance de
partment of the IIkkai.h a.M) Mail.
With such sclf-saeriticiiig gentlemen
at the head of the editorial depart
ment, as you, Pros. Pullock and Wat
kins, I tV-el we are destinet I to succeed.
We are rejoiced to know of the zeal
and great enthusiasm that character
ized the convention, and wish every
melulK-r of our order to adopt the
resolution of Pro. Pullock; and go to
work like heroes, to emancipate our
fair country from the tyranny of alco
hol. For those poor fellows who are
the victims of strong drink, we should
have compassion, prayer and Chris
tian sympathy. And Cod grant by
our prayers ami ellorts, that hundreds
ami thousands of prodigals with their
scarred and palsied tongues maj Ik
brought out from their bondage and
made to stand ii in the true nobility
of their manhood. The good old 1 1 Kli
ai.i is read by every one in thin com
munity, all lfing Coxl Templars;
your department elicits considerable
attention, and is admitted by all to In
st very attractive feature of the JIkii
ai,i." Pittle Otey after giving pro
found attention to the reading of the
temperance items of last week, re
marked that Dr. Smith was a mighty
good (iood Templar, and that Cod
would take him home to Heaven when
he died. He seems deeply impressed
with the great importance of total
abstinence in a Christian. Our kind
regards and a prosperous and happy

Worthy Drrrcc Trinphir.
In my musings this evening, I was
led to contemplate ti.e great good
done by the noble order of Iood Tem
plars in this community; my heart
was made to swell with dilutions of
joy, unspeakable and full of love to
Cod, the author of all good. The
homes made happy, the hearts made
glad, ami the souls led to Christ, will
tell to the honor of the order through
all eternity. Should it do no more
than it has already done, I feel that
onr obligations to the Father of mercies
are beyond conception and comjichsa
tion. And Im it resolved by ibis de
gree temple, that we reconsei rate our
selves, that we give a more unwaver

The most remarkable appeals that
we rememlier eve to have heard in
behalf of suffering humanity were
made at the liquor dealers' mass meet
ing at Tammany Hall on Thursday
evening la.st. From time immemorial
the wholesale dealers and the grog
shops, which together number more
than li,0)0, have lieen jiouring out a
tide of crime and pauperism and
wretchedness immeasurable upon the
city; bringing starvation and hopeless
misery into thousands of once happy
homes; driving thrifty mechanics and
laboring men, with their families, into
garrets, where women and children
drag out a miserable existence, and
from which thej' drop at last into pau
This blighting of lives and utter ex
tinguishing of hopes -and actual in
fliction of untold agony has Iteen go
ing on as the direct fruit, the main
business of rumselling. until the com
munity has become almost hardened
to it. Put it was not this which form-:
ei I the basis of an appeal for sympa
thy. It was the sufferings ot the rum
sellers in not lieing permitted to ply
their trade, the agony endured by a
few keejiers of grog-shojw who had
leen arrested and held for a night for
a violation of law. The sufferings of
these law-breakers awakened so much
sympathy that, according to the re
lort in the paiers, "a standing crowd
packed the hall at 8 o'clock, and their
appearance indicated that they were
all interested either in the sale or the
consumption of liquors."
Hon. Augustus Schell, on hiking
the chair, told his fcl low-citizens that
it was with no little emotion that he
rose to preside over them. In the last
few weeks they had seen the city
thrown into a state of almost unheard
of excitement, and men who supjiosed
they were engaged in business sanc
tioned by the law torn from ther wives
anil their homes at unseasonable hours
and cast into prison. Arbitrary ar
rests, which were one or the causes
that brought on the devolution, had
Ix'en employed in this last jiersecution.
Mr. Schell said he would be" followed
by speakers who would present the
case in all its enormity.
John P. Fellows, Esq., who follow
ed .Mr. ."-s heJi, drew a touch mirincture
of the sufferings of the liquor dealers
in the past two weekg, and made a
siK-ciai point or .New iork's great
cnariiarjie institutions, lostered by the
revenues of the liquor business. These.
he regretted, would sutler if the liquor
dealers Mere not allowed to prosecute
their vocation. They did not oppose
tne execution oi tne law, nut did de
nounce ine maimer m which it was
executed. lie thought it did not
sjx-ak well for the civilization of the
city that in the broad light of day
4ihi or .xxi men were arrested, some at
their tables in the midst of their fami
lies, and dragged through the streets
to be huddled together .in dirty cells.
How long will it lie before the re
spectable part of the citizens of New
York will tie roused to something like
the pitch of excitement and depth of
sympathy in Uhslf of those made
wretched aud ruined by the unrestrain
ed sale of rum, which these rumsellers
and their retainers manifest in behalf
of those of their craft who have leen
arrested for violating the law. It may
lie both proper and necessary to have
places where 1kUi wine and ardent
spirits can lie purchased, hut not one
valid argument can be urged for keep
ing open in this city seven or eight
thousand grogshops, where the vilest
of liquors are sold to oison tlie people.
It is one of the mysteries of human
nature that any can be found having
the form of humanity who oppose the
shutting up of these establishments,
or at least putting them under prier
restraint for tlie protection of society.
