When we arrived Mr. II. Clay Sexton
had been jnlroduei d and was well "warmed
up." Mr. S. is a natural orator. If- docs
not make a .scholarly speech; but for earn
estness and animation we have never heard
his equal. He has a good, strong voice, is
clcar-head'-d, and manifestly has his whole
soul enlisted in the cause m which he is
laboring. He said he had been admonish
ed that, at the head of a tire department of
a great city as he was, his advocacy of
temperance would r -nd -r him unpopular,
ami might cost him his official head.
The proposition h" denied, the suggestion
he thought improbable. Ask the most big
otted ruinseliiT or the most degraded rum
drinker of St. Lmis w hich lu would rather
have to look after the safely ol'the property
and the lives of the people. Clay Sexton
drunk or Clay S- xton sober, and the an

Sexton sober. And' so in all the business
relations in life, in our banks and stores
and shops the sober man is
trusted, the drinking man suspected:
and if his love of tin; temperance cause,
that had snatched o many gorl men from
perdition, so many deserving wives and
loving mothers from want and misery, and
so many helpless children from r.-gs and
hunger if to advocate such a cai:.- iui

tin; temperance esuse the cause of all
cuuses; tiie catise of Goil and humanity
not one of them 'levoted one si rinon in a
dozen. And, concluding his address,
which occupied about forty minutes, Mr
Sexton said that the love of temperance
was interwoven with his whole being. IL
loved it. because it was the cause of Goil
and man ; it was the cause of children; it
was tin; cause that lifted the poor debauch
ed ami degraded human being from under
foot.up to the estate of respected manhood ; it
brought sunshine where there were shadows
ami darkness; plenty where there was
want; and happiness where there was misery.
The gentleman was frequently applauded,
as he deserved to bo, for his speech was
sensible practical and earnest even to fervid
nes. Mr. Bob SeMt followed Mr. S-xlon. Ib
is evidently a gentleman of mor, ciiliure
than Mr. Sexton, but with h- animation.
If Sexton is a natural or.ifor Scott is a
natural wit. UN sentences m i- wi H tm intl
nnd his points w-ll put, He com
menced by kaying im u. owed
a debt of gratilitde to the grand
State of Illinois that lie never could repay.
He had owed il I'm- tliirteciiyeai siiiiilnevi r
liadcvpecled llinl he , children could

lesson to "be j;,H)1j (o inmeif.' Friend
had told him tlu,t he hud bartered away his

rendered the right to starve his wife and
family. He had swapped off the right to
wear n red face, und to muko a fool of him
'lf. He had forfeited the right
to put silks and ' satins on
tho children of the rum
seller, and tatters and rags on the flesh of.
his own fl,.h,. He m, swapped ff all
these liberties, and if ynu think my wife
don't upproyu the trade just ask her. An
eminent divine of St. Louis had said that
not to be uble to drink was a sign of moral
weakness. Ho confessed to ii moral
weakness, lie plead guilty, and his wife
gloried in his guilt. The alms houses
and prisons of our gnat cities

seen them breaking rock and;
wherever you find the deepest degra

Louis divine, are sure to abound abundant
ly. Mr. Scott continued at sonic length,
contrasting the happiness and prosperity of
the sober mau and the misery, destitution
and dispair of the drunken, alternately
moving the audience by the pathos of bis
pictures and then convulsing it by tin
drollery and exceeding pungency of his
wit. Wo cannot, at the late hour at which
we write, do eitln r speaker justice. The
