We understand llmt as Mr. Vnrdetnnn of
Rail county, wm slaying over night nt Mr.
Wilkerson Crawford's, liulf way between Han
nibal and New London, list Mond.ty ween, the
, house was broken inta nnd Mr. V. was robbed
of $250, and another gentleman who wm also
stopping there, was robbed of $50. The per
non who committed the rubbery was t ranked to
the second lord of Hear creek, and then (lie track
was lost. We hIo understand thai theru are a
number of runaway ne.gr jes in that section of
country who are alarming the people by attack
ing and robbing other negroes at night, and by
inducing other negroes to run away.
Mr. Clemens: With many thanks to the
members of the ILinnibul Liijnor Law Associa
tion, I beg leave to decline being a candidate on
their ticket, for Councilman.

I'.irnura's great American Menagerie and
Mmuuin are in town to day. The crowd of
people ill attendance is about as welt worth see
ing as the exhibition itself.
As this number introduces anew volume of
the Journal, it would be a suitable time for all
the friends of the paper to give it their kind as
sistance. Every one who finds himself indebt
ed to it, will render us a favor by sending in the
amount. Every one, also, can assist us by add
ing to our list of subscribers. Perhaps there
is no one but what can obtain at least one new
subscriber, and many five or ten. All such as
sistance will not only be a benefit to us, but also
to our subscribers themselves, as it will place
in our power the means of making the paper
continually more excellent.
With this number commences the fourth vol
ume of the Journal.
We mean our course to be, like that of the
country itself, steadily onward. We mean to
keep a vigilant eye upon all that contributes to
tho interests of our patrons, and communicate it
to them. In regard to markets, we mean to
be seasonable and reliable. Of foreign and do
mestic news, we mean to have the latest and
best. The true interests of Agriculture and
manufactures will receive our best attention.
Nor shall we be confined merely to things
political, agricultural, manufacturing, and com
mercial. All other topics, also, which give a
spring to society and go directly to promote
man's noblest interests, will find us their earnest
and faithful expositor.
THE EDITOR'S BEAT.
The Editor's scat is a high and peculiar posi
tion, from winch lie can survey far and near
the surrounding scene, and convey the choicest
portions of it to his readers. As an editor, he
exists for their benefit, and should carry a deep
sense of his duties with him into the theatre ol
his labors. -
These duties arc to be, not only to provide
his readers with entertainment, and to answer
the ends of his advertising patrons, but also to
point out the way to loftier excellence, and show
it by himself climbing the steep. In its sub
jects, his ppper should be the repository of
nhat is h'U.I toennoblcand bless mankind; and
in the tv
nu n! of them there should be a cor
liitfiiity and propriety. N 'i L .1
itor mjt fall into an amiable in-Kni,
or. v. se cheerfully . ajij sociably with his
r ai'ter-:, but he is still to remember the respect
i.e owes to them, and the benefits they of right
lock r-r at his hands, and he ought neither to
furnish to them, nor permitolhers to furnish to
them, through him, the language of rudeness or.
scurrility, or to drag before them topics harmful
r disgusting to humanity.
And so ot his deportment toward his brother
editors. They are a brotherhood for good, pro
minent before the people. They may and ought
to ennoble their calling and set before their pa
trons high examples of all that marks the phil
anthropist and the gentleman. However much
they may differ in principle, let all their discus
sions be carried on in the temperate language of
courtesy, trusting to hard logic and solid argu
ments for the establishment of their positions.
Truth is eternal, and stands upon her own basis.
She will finally triumph, and all her advocates
can afford to present their offerings calmly and
composedly at her shrine, and then wait for the
certain day of victory. E.

Just as much liquor sold as before prohibit ion,"
is still the cry. and we have nodoulit is In-neat-ly
believed by some, but n the tale ami uso ol'
strong drinks produce drunkenness, and drun
kenness produees crime, and crime furnishes
tenants for run we have honestly supposed
that the n'imr ui such tenants was u pretty
good cri t r. hi by which to judge of the effects ot
pruliii.i'i-an. In this we were ' the mure fully
c liliriru- 1 '. y the f.tel that in our examination ol
1'i r li ..1 unr I ills in Wealer.i Noiv YnrL
I'.iun.l. is we Live often stated, lhat the law of
1S43 reduced the romniiimenls in all of them
considerably, in others one-half, and in a num
ber of cases entirely emptied them, leaving them
without a tenant for mouths. Jails too, that linl
never before exhibited such a spucUclo. Ai, I
when we see the same thing said of the
Vermont, we suppose that I he s.iit.c ".,.-. j,
producing the same effect, and 'in' . hn - rime
and intemperance are actually diminishing, tin r i
cannot bean increase in the use of strong drink ..
Some time since it was announced that tin
jail at Burlington was empty, and now the same
is said of that at Chelsea, and we confidently
anticipate that others, in the course of the year,
will be added to the list.
And here we will make the remark in our pa
per, which we have often mado to individuals,
that if we had the pecuniary means, we would,
as the best possible thing to promote (lie passage
of a Maine Law in this and in all other States
where they are agitating it, take the most thor
ough measures to get the exact gunge of poverty
and crime, as exhibited by the statistics of the
Jails and Poor Houses of the States where that
law is now in operation. We can hardly find
language to express our regret lhat it should not
be done. It might be done in two months.
We see at this moment a letter in the Wes
tern Christian Advocate, dated at Portland, which
after speaking of the amendment to their law,
rendering it easier of execution, says :
"There has never been a period of the sarui
length, when there has been so little disturbance
and crime, as for the last two months. I wish
every man who doubts tho good effect of this
law could come and see f or liimsclf."
Portland, Me , August 18, 1S53.
Bao. Hazew: -Our State Election is ap
proaching, and the friends of Temperance and of
the Maine Law are on the alert. The "Libct
aU" (rummies) succeeded, by dint of packing
caucuses and other political intrigues, in getting
the majority in the Democratic State Convention,
and secured their man as nominee for Governor.
But this has only awakened the friends of Tem
perance, and they are resolved to show the world
that they will adhere to the Maine Law rather
than be bound in party trammels. The Maine
Law Democrats have had another Convention
and nominated a good and popular man, Hon. A.
P. Morrill. We have now four candidates for
Governor : three of whom are outspoken in fa
vor of the law. Mr. Pillsbury will command
tho votes of thn "Liberals," and of the party
Democrats; but lam much mistaken if becomes
near to an election. I think the eleel ion will
show the Anti-Law faction worse beaten than
evr. Beaten this time, and the Maine Law is
a fixed fact; a strong opposition can never be

aid of the county, nil the expenses of their own
Court of Common Pleas, furnishing their own
Court House and paying every officer of tin
Court. Why, then, should they be railed upon
to pay 40 per cent, more, now, to builJ a new
Court House and offices ? Arc we to be made
'Hewers of wood an 1 drawers of water" tj a
little junta in and around Palmyra, to sustain
their official dignity ? We know of no portion
oT the people mt the county, except in and near
Palmyra, who wants a new Court House at a
cost of $25,000. It is only wanting there, to
orn mieni nnd 'efresh the town, nt the expense
of the county ! It is not needed nor required by
ii r people, whatever U rami J lines, stimulated
in ( itii tly influences, may present, or be indu

answer at the ballot boxes. Why should
Iho people of the county wish this expenditure
of their money 'i Have the people of Palmyra,
at any time, made any effort, (except nt the
county expense,) to open up good roads to their
town ? " Have they not, on the other hand, ever
demanded unreasonable charges for the right of
way? And have they not, at all times, opposed
every obstacle to the making of good roads to the
river, ut points where trade invites, or miht
spring up? Nay, have they not, and are they
not now .seeking to transfer trade and markets,
for the people, to points and places, not only out
of the county , but out of the State ? Have they
not opposed, by every strategy the growth and
trade of jour town the only place of reasona
ble promise m the county ? Yet without mak
ing good roads to their own town they complain
and seek tribute from every part of the county!
But good roads to the river, the people will have;
and by her own machinations, between your
city, LaGrange and Quinoy, it requires no
stretch of fancy, to set the day when a Court
House costing ,-25,000 of the peoples' money,
will be a lonely monument in a deserted village.
