To tit Editors at tha Coarttr sa " Torts Law."
I answer the right to stll rum is not a pecu
liar right under our national or State institu
tions, and a prolubitioti of that right does not
violate those Constitution.. ... Agaiu, in coming
into society we must relinquish many rights
thus, the right io drive through our streets as
fast as we please, and to sell in market what
we please and when we please lastly, many
other rights are restricted by law ( yet who
questions such restrictions, as uncoMtiluiional !
There have been numerous decisions upon this
right by our Supreme J udget in favor of the law,
but what hat that to do with the prohibition of
dram ahops, any more than with faro tables end
bawd houses. This is an objection which can-
not be divided. The argument has no partial
application. You must repeal at onee all your
hundred statutes against vices of all descrip
tion) or you must apply the principle to all. If
you do not prohibit the liquor seller, what a
gross injustice you are doing to these gamblers,
who you are punishing wilh plenary vengeance
from court to court. This argument has no
meaning unless you repeul all human laws,
Tbey are all founded on the single idea of the
general welfare. 1
I am persuaded the menwho make this objec
tion are not halt so weak as they seem to be.
They are only imitating their brethren of the
Ihtr bar, In ssying anything to the jury, which
they tliink may touch a soft spot. I am thai.k-
ful to them, however, for making a public ac
knowledgment of the great doctrine of total
depravity, which so many of them deny on all
other occasions. They are right. Human ap
petite are so depraved that they cannot be bri

against theft, and murder, and adultery ? Why
do you visit the gambler and the bawd with the
terror of the Police Court ? Do you lay, that

For tha Journal.
Ma. Clemchs : I wish to talk a little to the
youthful editors of the " Courier." I really do
not think their mothers know they are out ; I
know their consistoncy(P) is not fully appre
ciated. In a few short sentences they state that they
are friends of (he temperance cause tempe
rance men themselves that they prove their
love for it by practice and precept, and then
devote four columns a week, nearly all the space
usually devoted to editorial, to misrepresenting
the positions and intentions of the friends of the
cause jn this city; to twisting and torturing
the meaning of the "Journal" into a canvass
for the Maine Law, as if thai law was to be
voted for in November, and to crying out to the
few democrats that read its columns, or appre
ciate its efforts, to " stand off," " keep aloof,"
because, I suppose, the liquor traffic in this city
happens to be wholly in the hands of democrats,
as if the influence of four or five liquor-selling
democrats could stop the mouths or bury the
consciences of the many, very many democratic
temperance men in our midst. They sing out
the drunkard's old argument, " free country,"
as if our being in a free country gave us the
privilege of pouring poison down our neighbors'
throats, or the privilege of making widows and
orphans without number. Whut an arg ament 1
Why, according to it, I could build a slaughter
ing house anywhereon Main street, that would,
by leaving all the offal lying around it, breed a
miasma that would be death to hundred of good
neighbor. Let me ask, then, was there ever a
slaughter house that did or could breed such a
miasma of murder and misery, destitution and
poverty, such sweeping destruction to all the
dear ties of families and friends and kindred, as
a liquor-selling establishment ? Ohl 'lis a "free
country." WThen by poying a tribute into the
State treasury the liquor seller can sever the
sweetest bonds of social life ; can cause the frail
and delicate partner of man to be turned out to
the pitiless storm in midwinter, and the starving
children to beg from door to door for bread
Who says 'tis not a "free country."
They call it the " Force Law." All mer
chants pay into the State and County treasuries
a tax in proportion to their business. One law
governs all their licenses, whether they sell cali
coes or iron, sugar or fish but for the benefit
of the whisky seller, the Legislature has made
a special law refuses to cluss him with mer
chants; claims and exercises Ihe right to regu
lute or prohibit, if proper, the trade in liquor,
and fixes a special license for the liquor seller
to pay high above the liceuse of the merchant.
If they would place the license in amount in
proportion to the evil they do, and have dam
ages assessed by a jury ef the widows of de
ceased drunkards, there would be more justice
But I wish to call their especial attention to
their consistency. If they would come out and
confess their fondness for the "creetur." and
fight under his banner of the skull and cross
bones, I would respect them better.
Xtieyare the "friemis of temperance :" still
they style the many ministers of th gospel,
members of the bar, merchants, mechanics, and
ladies who are using their influence morally to
advance the cause of temperance in our city,
"fanatics." They prate about their practising
temperance, then use their paper to instil into
the minds of the democracy of this city the idea
that whisky selling is a plank in the democratic
platform. Are they not worthy exponents of
jenersonr (I think he was the father of demo-
cracy.) Well might the genius of Mr. Bin
ton's old "demos craieo" exclaim: "Save me

The project of building a railroad from Tai
myr to Quincy hat, for some time past, en
listed much of tho attention and interest of the
people of the above-named localities. Many
plant have heretofore been tuggctted for perse
cuting the desired result, and many the durk
designs we were accused ef harboring upon the
It would seem now that the speedy consum
mation of this enterprise is rendered almost cer
tain. Messrs. Lucas & Simonds, of St. Louis,
a wealthy, enterprising and active firm, have
associated with themselves others in this pro
ject, and have secured the right to build a road
rrom raimyr io viiincy, unaer auinoruy oi
our general Railroad Law, approved 24th Feb
ruary, 1853. The capital stock of this associa
tion is limited to $500,000, a sum which we
suppose will be amply sufficient to build and
equip the road. There is a deep interest felt
in the success of the contemplated movement by
the citizens of Quincy, and that city and it
citizens may be set down as good for $100,000
of the stock. Now, as we of Palmyra have a
deep interest also in this matter, the eyes of the
people will very naturally turn inquiringly to
ward us. What, then, can we do for the suc
cess of it ? This question we think we can
answer for ourselves. We can do very much
toward it if we do but go about it in the right
war, end in (he proper spirit. Then will we
do it P That is for our people to say. We have
the ability. We want this road. It is the very
thing for which our citizens have been ardently
wishing. We are all awake te the great ad
vantage ii will be to us ; it will, by connecting
with the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad.
place us directly upon the great line of travel
between the East and West.
It will build up our town, fill our workshops,
and bring with it a thousand blessings. Shall
we then, under these circumstances, manifest a
mean and niggardly spirit towards this enter
prise? Every consideration prompts us to the
opposite course. With this view of the case.
we think we can safely bespeak from our citi
zens a libera! subscription. That that sub
scription should be at least $50,000 to begin

bility be raised.

It gives us pleasure to state that a company
has been organized under the General Incorpo
ration Law of the State of Missouri, to construct
a railroad from Palmyra to this city. No actual
survey has yet been made, but the ground has
been examined by an experienced and capable
engineer, who is satisfied that the road can be
made that its length will not be more than ten
miles, and that its cost, equipped and ready for
use, will not exceed $300,000.
Messrs. Lucas & Simonds, well known bank
ers of St. Louis, have interested themselves in
this matter, and the organization referred to has
been the result of their exertions in the matter.
Their character, Btunding and influence furnish
a thorough guaranty that the work is important
and that it will be carried out. It will be a most
important link in the Pacific Railroad. It
will connect St. Joseph with the Eastern cities
by the Lake mute and by the way of the Great
Western Railroad. It will connect Quincy and
St. Louis (by the North Missouri Railroad.
which taps the Hannibal and Saint Joseph road,
west of Palmyra.) And it will render certain
the completion of a railroad bridge over the
Mississippi at this point, at every early day.

fires. Thesje Stoves have a Patent Hot Air Flue, which carries the heat that 1
generated under the fire-plate down the front part of the Stove between two thick
plates to the draft at the bottom of the Stove, thereby adding great heat to bake with
on the bottom, and remedying that which has always been a fault with toves of I
descending flue, heretofore. Tho Charter Oak has one flue and one plate more trnin
any Air Tight stove yet invented. They will cook with one-half the fuel which on
of the ordinary stoves will, and will lust for twenty-five years.

The ilillereuce between Fuley's Patent Pieiniuin and other stoves of the same form in use, sre, is
