Wbibras, The existing parties are
hopelessly unwilling to adopt an ad
equate policy on this qrostiorr, there
fore we, in national convention as
sembled, as citizens of this free re
public, sharing in the duties and re
sponsibilities of its government, in
the discharge of a solemn dirty we
owe to our country and our race,
unite in the following declaration of
principles :
t. That while we acknowledge the
pore patriotism and profound states'
manship of those patriots who laid
broad and deep the foundations of this
government, securing at once the
tights of the States severally and their
inseparable union by the Federal Con
stitution, we would not merely garnish
the sepulchers of our republican fatb
ers, but we do hereby renew our sol
emn pledge of fealty to the imperish
able principles of civil and religious
liberty embodied in the Declaration of
American Independence and our Fed
eral Constitution.
21 That the traffic in intoxicating
Beverages is a dishonor to Christian
civilization-, inimical to the best inter
ests of society, as pork icai wrong of un
equaled enormity, subversive ef the
ordinary objects of government, not
capable of being regulated or restrain
ed by any system of license whatever,
but imperatively demanding for its
suppression effective legal prohibition
both by State and National Legisla
tion. 3. That in view of this, and inasmuch
as the existing political' parties either
oppose or ignore this great and para
mount question, and absolutely refuse
to do anything toward the suppression'
of she rum traffic, which is robbing he
Mrtion of its brightest intellects, des
troying its material prosperity, and ra
pidly undermining its very founda
tions, we are driven by an imperative
sense of duty to Bever our connection
with these political parties, and to or
p.mie ourselves into a National Prohi
bition Party, having for its primary
object the entire suppression of the
traffic in-intoxicating drinks.
4. That' while we adopt the name of
the National Prohibition Party, as ex
Dressive of onr primary object', and
while we denounce all repudiation of
ttie public debt, and pledge fidelity to
the principles of the Declaration of In
dependence ana tne reaerai uonstitu
tion, we deem it inexpedient to give
prominence to other political issues.
5. That a Central Executive Commit
tee of one from each State and Terri
tory and the District of Columbia, be
appointed by the Chair, whose duty it
shall be to take such action as in their
judgment' will' beet promote the in

Twkxtt years ago, a farm-eight
miles square in Livingston coucty,
Illinois, was entered by its present
owner at $125 per acre. It is now
subdivided inlo thirty-two farms of
li280 -acres each, very farm being
ran bp -separate sets of bands, the
whole under" the direction- cf the
owner, M. L. Sullivant. There are
15,000 asres under the plow ; 250
miles of hedge fence, besides other
fences ; 150 miles of ditch for drai
ning. One hundred men, and four
baodred work horses and mules
are employed en the farm, and two
book-keepers, four blacksmiths and
eight carpenter. An accurate ac
count is kept with each sab farm,
and with each- man, horse and
mule, the animate being all nacaed
or n timbered, ant charged wttb the
amount paid , for them and their
food, and credited with their labor.
The entire farm- with all the im

The Temperance Pic Nic Meet
ing that ttas advertised to be held
at Slountsvillo on the 4th, was a
(mlure, of course. The heavy rains
of that day, the heaviest that has
been in Morgan county for a year,
was the causo. In company with
David Mammcy, ire started tor the
Village before the ruin had set in,
and, as we were in for a wetting
anyway, we concluded to seo
Uounlsvillo at all hazards. We
done bo, and fcond it to be a tery
nice country Village, with inhabit
ants who are both sociable and hos
pitable. Mountsville has two stores,
a tin-shop, blacksmith's shop, a re
sident pby6ician, and a (Jlitm-h,
and is very pleasantly situated on
the hfih land of that country.
Within ibe past year, water hah
been scarce there, and the great
rain of the 4th was esteemed by all
as a special blessing. Arrangements
had been male for a rousing Temp
erance Meeting there, and had the
woather been propitious they wo'd
have had one without do jbt. The
Prohibitionists of Homer township
are at work earnestly and zealous
ly for the cause, and will give a fine
account of themselves in October.
Wo are under special obligations to
Charles Cray and Vr. Morris lor
their hospitality.
Jacob Mueller, Republican
Candidate for Lieutenant.
Governor.
j
The nominee of the JJeprfblfcun
Stale Convention for Lieutenant
Governor of Ohio, is Jacob Mueller,
of Cleveland. lie is a native of
J
H:l
ivaria, and came to America in
184S, settled in Cleveland, and be.
gan the study of the law ; iL-d, af
ter being admitted to rracliee, fol
lowed his profession nrrtil 1859.
when he was chosen Secfetrfv of
tho German Insurance Company,
of Cleveland, and he has remained
in the mt-urance business ever
since. The reason for Ins nomina
tion was to carry favor with the
Gorraan, or Lager Beer vote of the
State. The Prohibition Era, pub
lished in Cleveland, in an article en
the Convention, speaks of his nom
ination as follows :
' I he Germans, and those who are
after the German vote, exhibited con
siderable shrewdness in getting for
ward at a late hour, unexpectedly to
those outside managing ring?, the
name of Jacob Mueller, of this city, as
a candidate for Lieutenant Governor.
The Germans-insisted on having acim
didate on the ticket, and the clamor
and pressure carried Mr. Mueller into'
nomination over L. 1 Woodworth, of
Mahoning coonty, and Alprtonsa-IJart,
of Portage county, neither of whom
would be certain to secure "the great
German vote." On the first ballot,
Mueller had 169 1-2 votes, Wood
worth, 178 1-2, and Hart 93. Then
General Garfield tcok Hart's name
out of the way, and on the second
ballot Mnelre? had 230 votes and
Woodworth 210: So Mueller was the
man, and, making a virtue of necessi
ty, a Woodworth- delegate moved his
nomination be made uaanimeu.
which was-carried. Mr. Mueller is a
man of ability, but is tlVe fepres-er)ta-
tire of German ' liberalism," te-at is,
nitemterance views, free Sundays,
and free l-ager. Certain Republicans,
who say they are just as good temper
ance men as anybody, will probably
swallow t! candidate and his views
on the liquor question at one gulp
next October."
Here, then, we have another evi
dence of what the Temperance
views of the Kepnbhcan party am
ount to; and of the disposition of
that party to- support Tempercnre
measures and men. Here is a man
cominaied by the Republican par
ty for the second position in the
State, that is opposed to all Temp
erance nioasures, that is in favor of
Lager Beer shops, that is opposed
to even restraining the sale of Lag
er Beer on SonJny. lie is such a
one as would go lo church on a
Sunday morning, and then spend
the rest of the same day at some
Beer Garden or Sloon. This man
has been nominated by the Repub
licans in order to secure the Ger
man vote. The Republican
press throughout the State is giv
ing him great praise. .Republicans
who claim to be "as good Temper
ance urea as anybody," and Who, a
few months ago, said th-y would
never vote for a man of anti-lemp-
eraace views or habits, are pledg
ing themselves ia their Uoiinty
Conventions to vote for him. Lv
en Church memoers-and uierrvmen
are rallying lo the support of this
Mueller, who would as soon break
the Sabbath in a Beer Garden as
keep it at a place of public worship,

bttlis of the entire iialional debt in
only one year. Ex-Commissioner
Wells- is the arthortty for this
statement. The saddest thing of

It purchases annually thousands of
drunkards' deaths, innumerable
broken hearts, nntold miseries of
myriads-of household, and an end
less catalogue of pauperism, dis
ease; crime and rein.
How- to check- this monstrous
and apparently increasing evil, is
the great question. Prohibition
must havodone a- good deal when
thoroughly tried,' if the statistics of
Hon. D. A. Wells can' be relied on.
Take for example the two New
England States of Maine and Con
necticut, about equal in popula
tion, lue former has a prohibito
ry law, and the latter has none. In
the former tho retail of intoxicat
ing dtinks in 1867 amounted to a
little over S8.000.000. and in the
latter lo more than $35,000,000,

readiness to supply the demands of
tneir trade.
Thosi who are mourning Vallan
digham's death would do well to ex
amine into the cause thereof.
While Yallandigham was a man
that did not drink, a strictly temp
erate man. vet his death can be
traced directly lo Whisky. Jack
Garvef j who was indicted with 11c
Gehah tor the murder of Myers,
onvs, in speaking of Vallandighara'a
death, "Whibky did it all. If it had
not been lor Whisky, there would
have been nothing of it." That is
to say that Whisky was the cause
of the row in which Myera was
killed, and that if ft bad not been
fr Whisky there would not have
been a row, Myers would not have
been killed, McGeban and Garver
would not have been indicted for
killing Myers, and Vallaudigbam
would not have been handling a
pistol to show how Myers accident
ally shot himself. Prohibit the
manufacture, tale and importation
of alcoholic beverages, and you
prohibit three-fourths of the murd
ers and accidental deaths in the
country.

Prohibition Party.
This is comparatively a -new par
ty organization. In Ohio it has ex
isted bat two years. Whatever else
may be said of them, it caortot be
denied that they can lay their hand
on their heart, and sinOr'ely nslc
Gfcd lo forward the good work.
They are striking for universal em
ancipation ffom the bondage of in
temperance. They have declared
in-favor ot Prombition from Mains
to Georgia and from the Atlantic
to the Pacific. It may be that Mr.
Greeley referred to this when ho
Warned his countrymen- to prepare
for another advance.
They have embodied but the one
idea iu their platform in order that
political differences and party pre
dilections may not estrange men.
They stand npon common' ground
whore all men, of whatsoever party,
may meet.
Gideon T. Stewart, of Huron
eountv, is the standard bearer of
this party, and both Republicans'
and Democrats, native asd' foreign
Sorn. black and white, are aC liber
ty to vote for him, assured that lie
is the equal in ability and integrity
of anv mac on any ticket. Zanes.

Water in the Communion
Service.
Miss Josephine A. Ellerv. in a
speech befere tho Reform League
Meetine in New York, a few weeks
ago, cited the roliowing esse ol ab
olishing wine from tne Conim&n-oa
Table, by tho Universalist cbsrch,
Gloucester, Mass.:
"It appears that the idea of fab-
stiluting water insteud of wine for
the communion service was agitat-
d in the Universalist Convention
held in Plymouth in October, 1870,
and that after some discussion it
was unanimously adopted by the
Gloucester church in February
last. The pastor, Mr. Eddy, arg
ued that the articlo used,by be Sa
vior was not fermented wine, but
the jUiCe of the grape pressed into
the efip at the time, and that water
came as near it 8 (ire wine now
generally used at Communion. He
also mentioned, as anothrr rerrion,
paramount with him to every oth
er, bis objection to tho presence of
wine ts a temptation to the weak.
One of the best and dearest friends
he ever knew was a reformed
drunkard, though ho had not even
suspected the fact. He joined hie
church, and to bis eternal regret,
his own bund passed the wine that
sent the poor victim to his cups a-
sain, and finally to nil a drunk
ard's gravo! In response to Mr.
Eddy's argument and appeal, with
the affirmation of others that many
were kept from oon.munien by the
use ol wine, the Society Unanimous
ly reeolved henceforth to substitute
water instead.
The Infamy of License.
What has been the history of
regulation ? For more than two
handrcd years, the sale of intoxi
cating liquors has been regulated by
law. .Need we point you to tne ro
eult ? The history of the traific is
a sufficient answer.
Regulate 8 Wrong ! The idea is
not more abBiird than infamous. It
is a foul compromise with iniquity
a yokirg of saint and sinner, and
of heaven and bell. The principle
would associate the arch fiend with
Doity oft the throne Of heave, ana
toingle tho waws of tJia lost with
the praises of tho redeemed. It
wou'd unite the words of bins and
wee, and place angels on a footing
with devils. Docs dod, in Mis gov

Renrock Sabbath School.
The Sabbath- School, by common
consent, is regarded' ra gi'cat mo
ral power in tho land, Chd aY'Thighty
power it is.. From it comes no evil
thing about is no evil infru-
enc.
The world is indebted lo Christi
anity, and to Uhristianity alone,
not-only frr the origin bat for the
existence of C&ir institution : arid
for all that has been done in it' and
through it. Its fori:itier wae ant
mated by the Spirit of Christ, and
the love of CLr:st has constrained
all who have labored and all who
are laboring there to-day.
Tbe Sabbath Sclool sows the
ire eels-of virtue, while,- a9 yet, the
ground lo unoccupied and best fit
ted for its reception ; and it strives
to' eradicate the weeds of vice,
which', btrt for its hand, would
flourish in poisonous luxuriance.
tVno can estimate the' result cf this
heart education, imparled week af
ter week in our thousands of sabbatb
Schools ? , .
The Sabbath School is an institu
tion of tbe Church it is her gard
en, cultivated by beriabars.vatcb-
ed by her vignadce; and she bless
es God, not only for living plants,
but lor the flowers which tbe stern
keeper bus transplaiited from

thisg to make men good citizens,
butivis a hotter thing to make
them'sood Christians". Those who
shall bo called great in the Kingdom
of Heaven-are not those who shall
have acquired' wealth' or great re
nown, or worldly honors, but these
who do and teach the Command
ments of God. Our hearts should
go forth in gratitude when we con
sider what God has done through
the instrumentality of the Sabbath
School. Thanks be to God for tbe

do not have to take just what j em

3rd. Living 'tm'emgst mi, Jenkins
helps to build up the business of the

right that commntrtty should' build

SA VBD t jt H one of the re
markable (acts of tbia' remarkable age, not
merely that so many persons ars the victims
ef dypepeis or indigestion, bat its willing
victims. Now, we wo!d not bennderstood
to say tbat any one regards dyspes with
favor, or feels disposed to rank it among
tbe luxuries ol life. Far from it. Those
who bars experienced its tor men la won id
scoot inch an idea. Mark TapFey, who was
jolly nader all the trying circumstances in
which he was placed, never bad an aiiack of
dy.spepeia, or his jollity would have speedi
ly lurcskeh- him. Men and women some
times suffer its tortares nnoomplainingly,
bat whoever beard of a person who enjoyed

which the Kuman system is liable, therein,
perhaps, none so renerally prevaleot asdy
penia. If there ia a wretched being ia tbe
worlJ it is
A Confirmed Dytpeptie t
Bat it is not oar intention to descant on
the horrors of Pjspepsia. We have said
that djspepsia is perhaps the most univer
sal ol human disease. Tbia is emphatic
ally the case in tbe United States. Wheth
er this general prevalence is' dee to the.
character of the food, the method of its'
preparation, or toe hasty manner iowbiclf
it is usually swallowed, is not oar province
to explain. The great fact with which wt
are nailed to deal is thu :
Dytpeptia Fremiti
aim fist universally. N'early eveiy other per;
sob yoo' meet is a victim, arnl Apparently
a willing one ; for war sat t&is the case,
why so ffliny sufferers, when a certain spee
dy and safe remedy is within the easy
reach of all who desire to avail thDielves
ol it T Bat tbe majority will not. Blind,
ed by prejudice, or deterred by some other
unexplained influence, tbey refuse ttTas
cept tbe relief proffered them. They tarn
a deaf ear to the testimony of the thous
ands whofe sufferings hare been alleviated1,;
spd with strange infata1iro, Appear to
ciing with desperate determination to their
ra'JiIess tormentor. Bat says a dyspeptic:.
Whac is this remedy I to which we reply :'
This great alleviator of hnmao suffering ia
almost as widely known as the English Ian
cssre. It .has allayed tbe agonies' of th on
es nd. ami ia to-day carrying comfort and
encouragement to thousand ot others.
This acknowledged panacea ia none other
Than Dr. JIoolLmi German Bitter.
Would yon know moie of tbe merits of
this wooderlal medicine than can be learn
ed from tbe experience of others T Try it
yourself, and when it bas failed to fulfill
lb measure or its emcary given by the
proprietor, then abandon faith in it 1'
J.tl it Be Remembered,
firl of all, tbat HOOFLAXD'S German'
litltev is not a rant beverage.' They are
not alcoholic ia any Sense of the term.
They are composed wholly of tbe pare juice
or Vrtul principle of roots. This is not
more aatartioii. I l.e extracts rrnm which
they are compoandrd are prepared by one
of th ablest German chemists. Unlike a-'
ny other Bitters in tbe market, they are
wholly free from spirituous inered ieots.
Tbe objeetioos wbicb bold with so much
rofce agaiiut preparations ol this elss,,
nsmely that a desiis for intoxicating
drink is stimulated by their ne. are not
valid io tbe case of the German Bitters.
So far from encouraging or inculcating a'
'aste or desire for inebriation beveraires,
it may be confidently aserttd that their
tendency is in a diametrically opposite dl
lection. Their effects can be
Beneficial Only
in all cee of tbe biliary system. Hoof -land's
German Bitters stand without en e.
qua I, acting promptly and vignroaly upon
tne iiet; 1'iey remove iu tnrpioity sna
cause healthful secretion of bi!i thereby
supplying the stomscb with the most 'indis
pensable elements of sound digestion in'
proper proportions. They rive lota to tbe
stomach stimulating its Inactions, and
enabling it to perform its daties as nature
designed it should do.
They Turify the Blood,
cleansing the vital fluid of all hdrlfdl imp
arities and sappladtirg thrm.'witli the ele
ments oi genuine beelthfulnes. Bat tni
that most genei ally prevalent, distressing,'
and dreaded disease, Dyspepsia,
They Stand Unritdlid.
Now, there are certain classes cf persncs
to whom extreme Bitters nie not only ea
palatable, but who find it impomibleto
take them without poeitive discomfort.
for such Dr. Jloofiand' German Tonie has
been specially prepared. This preparation
ia not OLly palatable, !iut combines, in mo
dified form, all the virtue of the German
Bitter, lo cases of langnor ar excessive.
Ability, where the syatsoi appears to have"
become exhausted of iis'energies'. Hoo
Oand's) Tonic acts with siinost mart-"
elou fleet. Iigives strength lo weakness
and throws dipoudeccy to the winds.
But Ir. UiX'fld's benefactions to the ha
man race ere not confined to his celebrated
Tfjrtiiirti I)Itteis", or bis iDTaiaable
ron'c tie bas prepared snothtr medicine,'
which is rapidly ifinsing way to popular
favor Decease of its intrinsic m6riu. I bis

lo act npoo the Liver, are mninly compos
ed f Podophyllin, or tbe Vital Principle
of the Mandrake Boot Tl is the dWdicioV
al virtues of this heallb-giviog plant.
Tie Phudopbyllin acts directly on tb Liv
er. Tbe extract of Mandrake contained in
them is rkillfully combined with fonr other
extracts, thus prodncing a pill that infh
ences the entiie digestive and alimentary
system, and in its action is entirely free from
oaosea. rossessing tnese mucn oesiraoie
qnalitiea the Podephvllin becomes invala
able as a' Famllr -&t No
Household should be without them. They
are perfectly safe, require bat two fcr so
ordinary dose, ire prompt and efficiect in,

Dr. Hoofland's German Bitters, or Tonie,
may be regarded as certain specifics in all
cases ef Liver Complaint. Dyspepsia or any
of Ibe disoidsrs to which the system is ord
inarily subject. The rOSwPHT

DR. riobrL.ATo,
having provided internal remedies for dis
eases, bas given the world one manly for
external application',' in the Wdoderful pre
