FRIDAY, .... Kov. 34, IST1.
Under the above heading", the
Herald, of last week. pubetBhee an
article from the Albany Z,ac Journ
al, which tabes the position tbat all
laws that regulate, restrain or pro
hibit the aale of alcoholic liquor.
are sumptuary laws. This is the
old bar-room argument, nd we
were surprised to see such an arti
cle in the columns of oar neighbor,
after its professions of being in fa
Tor of temperance, and onr present
liquor laws, although we knew
those professions wero all aham.
and made only to hold rotes to sus
tain the Republican party.
The idea that laws regulating, re
straining and prohibiting the sale
of intoxicating liquors are samplu
ary is about as tenable as the posi
tion Wvuld be tbat laws prohibiting
horse-stealing, anon and murder
are sumptuary. A sumptuary law
is one that regulates the personal
expenses of living of the individuals
of a community, and is not one that
has lor its object the prohibition ol
crime. Thtt alcoholic liquor mak
ing and selling, for the purpose of
being used as a beverage, is a crime
at least equal in magnitude to those
of bOTse-etealing. arson and mur
der, no one who will look about
him-and see the results will for a
moment doubt. If it is such a hein
ous crime, and at least one half nf
the liquor dealers even will admit
it to be, why should it not be pro
hibited as other crimes are T The
Herald, - by borrowing another's
brains, responds, "why, although it
is a .high crime, yet laws to prohibit
it are sumptuary, and sumptuary laws
mast not be tolerated." Now, are
such laws sumptuary ? How does a
law that) prohibits the manufac
ture and sale of a poison restrain a
man from spending just as much
money as he wants to? As a sump
tuary law is one that says tbat the
people subject to it shall only epei d
so much tor food, clothing, and
other necessary expense, :t strikes
us as though the dram-shop eyetem,
rather than the Prohibition prioci
pie, is founded in tbe sumptuary
idea, and tbat it has run the full
length of tbe sumptuary tether; It
says to fie poor nnforlunaies bound
down by C, yon shall spend nothing
for food and clothing for yourself
and family, you shall drees in the
worn out clothes of those charilab'y
inclined and shall feed on the
crumbs that fall from tbe tables of
those not under my dominion.
Will not ibe Herald raise another
platform, declaring it won't support
a person in tbe babit of using in
toxicating liquor as a beverage f t
"Temperance Legislation" Whisky the Origin of the Chicago
After all'lhat has been said rela
tive to the origin- of the Chicago
fire, it turns out last that whisky
was at the bottom of it. A Chicago

The Grand-Duke Alexis.
This member of tbe imperiJ fam
ily of EuBsia has landed in New
York, and the city is almost wild in
its reception of bim. While it is
certain that t nobs will make them
selves ridiculous in doing homage
to this royal ' persooage, yet it is
undoubtedly well enough that bis
soiourn here should be made as
agreeable as possible. Russia, like
.the United States,, is one ot the
great nations of tbe future. With
her vast territorial extent, she has
only to learn constitutional govern
ment, civil and religious liberly.and
popular education to dwarf every
other cation in Europe by ber
greatness. The time is coming
when tbe three leading nations of
the world will be the Kepublic of
the Coited States, the Empire of
Russrx, and the Republic of Austra
lia. Tbe time comes when the wes
tern nations of Earope will be
d war led by V.he greatness of Russia
in the North, and the United Slates
in tbe west, and Australia at the
east. This is what the brother
hood of two great nations means.
When we come into tbe empire ot
the world we will be friends. Bus
eia has much to learn ofns. The
Grand-Duke will find here no re
pression in religious matters and
eeneral education. He will find

Thi Brandon (Miss.) Republican
regards tbe late conflagration in
Chicago and the Northwestern for
ests as a "terrible retribution" from
Heaven for the devastation that
marked the course of Sherman in
bis famous march to the sea.- It
beads us article as follows : "The
South Heaping Coals of Fire on
the Heads of Its Enemies." The
Mormons have already claimed
these awful calamities as the ven
goance of Heaven npon the people
of Illinois for bavin? driven the
S tints ont of tbe State thirty years
ago. No doubt tho South is pre
pared to "heap ooate of fire upon
tbe beads of its enemies." Its lead
ers have "eaten" enough of it in
past years to have a little to spare,
cither for friend or foo.

Republicanism in England.
It seems just now a debates ble
question, whether or not Queen
Victoria will ever have a successor
on tbe throne ef England, She has
of late years demonstrated the pos
sibility of England's getting on
quite as well without a monarch as
with one, ana the people who nave
seen how smoothly the machinery
of government can be made to go
while the Queen remains in seclus
ion, are evidently questioning the
propriety of maintaining any long
er sj expensive a collection 01 ng-
ure beads as a royal tumiiy must
neceBfarily be.' lhe snubbing to
hich various members of tbe
Queen's household, including the
Queen herself, have been compelled
to submit, show a waning loyalty
on the part of the people wbic4i . is
bv no means enoourngmc to the
young man who hopes to be the next
King of Jinglaod. 'Ibe angry rour-
murings of the lower orders are au
dible across the Atlantic. Libera.-
ism in the middle ciass hao already
proved itself a piwer not to ie de
spised, and were England other
than she is, the indications ot a
coming revolution would be pro
nounced unmistakable by ail lookers-on.
As It is, wo must throw in
to tbe opposite settle the intense
conservatism of tbe British charac
ter, a conservatism amounting at
times almost to stolidity. We must
remember, also, that nearly alt the
wealth of England would be imper
iled in making any change, and the
repressive powerjof this wealth can
hardly be estimated.
Again, tbe government as it is, is
becoming more and more liberal ev
ery year, and there can be no ques
tion of the fact that it alrendv se
cures to the subject a measure of
personal liberty almost if not quite
as great as that enjoyed by citizens
of woll governed republics. This,
taken in connection with the fct
tbat a large number of the most ac
tive advocates of the republic are
tainted with Communism, must
greatly weaken the hands of those
who would alter the Constitution
by the abolition of royalty and ar
isiocracy. The English Governs
ment is felt to be a gpoi one as it
is, and there must bo many of tbe
people who, while they would pre
fer a republic, do not wish it earn
estly enough to join bands with tbe
communistic and agrarian elements
for tbe sake of so uring it. They
would like a republic, but shudder
at'the idea of tho Commune, and,
choosing between twj evils, they
would in tbe event of a revolution
join with tbe conservatives rather
than tbe radicals. Engliph repub
licanism is loo irenchy to bear
good fruits, and intelligent English
men probably know the fact too
well to consent to a change which
may result in a general overturning
of all tbat is good in the'.r constilu
lion, and tbe hubsliluUon of social
astio ideas against which the An
glo-Saxon character always revolts.
On the whole, it seems probable
that tbe English people will permit
no revolution to effect sudden chan
ges in their form of government.
In tbe future as in tbe past, chang
es will necessarily be mado, all
tending toward a wider personal
liberty and a more liberal lorm of
government. A divorce of the
Church from the State appears ine
vitable. What remains ot feudalism
in the English law will be stricken
out. Tbe vigcrous energy rf the
Commons will continue to encroach
upon prerogatives ot king and ar
istocracy, but all tbes things raay
and probably will come about grau
ually, and a republic may ulli
mately be wrought out of the'exist-
me coverniueolal fabric without
violence, just as tbe present Eng
lish Constitution has been hewn
out of feudal despotism piece by

Dr. rarker, the 1'resident, stated
that thirty -three and a third per
cent, of all deaths in New York
were occasioned directly or indi
rectly, by the nse of alcoholic
drinks, and tbat in tho last thirty
years one hundred and ninety thou
sand persons m New York city had
thus cume to their deaths. Dr.
Harris, Inspector of Prisons, slated
in bis report, tbat on v.siling tmy
six prisons in the State he had
lound that seventy-five per cent, of
all crimes committed wore traceable
to the nse of liquors. These state
ments are enough to startle order-
loving and philanthropic people
from thnr propriety. Dr. Tarker
held tbat drunkenness was a disease
like scarlatina or smallpox, therefore
curable; but viewed in that
light it is oven more requisite than
ever that the unrestrained sale ot
liquors in New York at all hours of
the day and night, and during ev
ery Sabbath, should become the
subject of sliong and earnest legis

The Coming Session of Congress.
The President and Cabinet offi
cers are busy preparing their annu
al reports tor Congress, and in about
two weeks tbat body will convene
for its annnal session. We have
seen the statsment tbat the present
will be a brief session, but can see
no reason for it. It will not be any
necessary limitation, while the num
ber ot bills which will burden tbe
calender will be unusually large.
Tbe perplexities of Congressional
legislation are growing to be as
great relatively as tbttot State leg
islatures. Rings are formed com
binatio&s made, and every means
employed to influence the action of
Congress on certain questions.
Bills embracing questionable legis
lation are frequently slipped through
in tbe hurry of tbe closing hours of
the session. Worst of all is the
growth in the volume of private
bills, and the absorption of the
time of Congress in considering
projects which are purely
and designed to promoto individual
interests. In this Stale, one feature
of tbe proposed Constitutional
Amendment is that which provides
for limiting the Legislature to pure
ly public questions and measures.
We are persuaded that it will pay
for a political party to propose the
same kind of amendment to the
National Constitution. If Congress
were 'limited to public bills, and if
pnvato measures were provided fcr
by some general feature of tbe Con
stitution, it might be better for
the country at large. Of courf e,
this thought as applied to national
legislation, would need to be elabo
rated with exceeding care, but thi
done and the burden of Congres
sional business would be greatly
The next session of Congress will
be, very largely a political one.
The coming Presidential contest
will be thought of. and inspire near
ly all the legislation of a public na
ture. The general policy of the two
political organizations, so far s
thny can be controlled by bisrh offic
ials, will be determined at Washing
ton within the next threo or four
months. Both political organiza
tions will carefully arrange their
legislative programme in view of
the political needs of next rear.
We do not pretend to prognosticate
the future in this respect. What
particular measures will bo elabora
ted by either party, in view of the
necessity of making up a record for
the canvass for President, wo do not
guess. But wa can easily see what
will probably bo the course nf the
two parties in regard to questions
1 he prominent topics will bo those
jf tbe Ku KIux, or amnesty, ami
the finances of the country. The
great effort of the Democracy will
he to show that a liberal and for
giving policy should prevail toward
the South, tbat KuEtux outrages
either have not occurred, or have
been greatly overrated, -and that,
consequently. the President's course
in declaring martial law was arbi
trary ami wrong We are free to
admit that this is ah exceedingly
delicate question for the Republican
party. It will be necessary to
show, with perfect conclusiveness
that tbe outrages charged actually
occurred, and that martial law
was necessary and beneficial in the
counties in which it was declared.
We fuliy believe this can be done.
If so it ought to be clearly and
plainly. But when this is done,
there remains the difficulty arising
from the (act that the Republican
parly is disposed to liberality while
I is compelled to severity, it is
inclined to amnesty, but it fears it
cannot do it justly, in view of its
duly to protect u jioni t South.
Hence all the argument on general
principlea in favor of amnesty must
be accepted, and the only reply to
be mado is that special circumstan
ces prevent the application of the
policy. In other words, tbe Kepuo
fican element will be on the detou-
sive as to the principle of amnesty,
and can only argue aggressively on
its impolicy. Ibe other question
is that of finances. Here the lines
may be clearly drawn. While it is
true that that there are free-trade
Republicans and tariff Democrats,
it still is true that the controling
oloment in the two parties is radi
cally divided. The Republican par
ty, us a party, favors a proteclivo
tariff, a? a means of paying off the
national debt. On the other band,
the Democracy favor free trade.
This issue will come before Congress
and lh policy of the two parties
will be more sharply defined. Other
questions may and doubtless will
come up. Altogether, the session
promises to be an exciting one.
