TIILTtSDAV, AUG. 31, 18G5.
Fur tome time past (lie river has beeii at
such a liigli stage an lo cover the sand-bars,
from which cause it was impossible to pro
cure sand for building purposes. So long
as this was the case an effectual embargo
was laid upon the erection of houses. The
river has now fallen sufficiently to uncover
these sand banks, and as a consequence
the workmen have began active operations
towards putting up the five two-story brick
business houses, heretofore apoken of.
These improvements will add materially to
the growth and prosperity of our city.
Other houses are also in progress, and the
day ig not far distant when the burnt dis
trict" will be well Digh replaced. These
improvements indicate a progressive spirit
in our people, and show (lie importance of
Glasgow as a business point. Few cities
on the Missouri river possess superior ad
vantages. Surrounded by a country noted
far and wide for its luxuriant richness of
soil, an old-settled and wealthy population,
and a good state of society and morals, we
may congratulate ourselves that we have
a most promising future.
We learn, says the St. Louis Democrat,
that Bishop Hawks, of the Episcopal church
in this State, has advised the clergy of Iiis
diocese to take the Constitutional Oath, or
if they cannot conscientiously do so, to
abandon preaching in this State. This is
the correct position. We learn that some
of our ministers, (and we hope all,) who
cannot take the oath, will cease preaching,
rather than stand in opposition to tho laws
or the Slate. Such a course is moderate,
wise and Christian, and will be productive
of beneficent results for the peace of the
State. Not a little apprehension has been
felt in many quarters that serious distuib
nnces may arise through opposition to the
new Constitution. By a proper spirit of
obedience to the law, these fears may soon
be (Impelled. It seems to us that with
these dangers safely passed, our people
have no further obstacles in the way of per
manent and enduring peace, and we may all
then rest in the secure and happy conviction
that the days of war and social anarchy, with
all (heir innumerable evils, are finally

For (he Union.
Mr. Editor : "Error ceases to be dan
gerous when reason is left free to combat
it." Pardon me, Mr. Editor, for taking
your well-chosen motto at the foundation of
my remarks. It appears to me if Mr. Urom
would comprehend its full import, he might
change the dangerous opinion which he
made public in the "Union" of August 17.
file opinion is erroneous, and consequently
dangerous j it is blind fanaticism, and all
fanatioism is based on error.
Now, that I may not be guilty of assert
ing what I cannot prove, with your per
mission, I desire to show that Mr. Uhum's
position is erroneous. This I desire to do,
not because I feel myself to be one of those
horrid "stay-at-home-traitors," whose hands
are covered with "innocent blond," or who
plotted the last coining of "Pup Price;" but
because I feel myself to be as loyal, and to
have been so from the very first, as tbe
gentleman ever dared to be.
Now, let us understand ihe gentleman be
fore we proceed to answer him, for I do not
wish to misrepresent him. The general
idea underlying his remarks is; "No sym
pathy, no good will, no kindly feelings, for
the vanquished." He mentions in particu
lar, preachers, school teachers and lawyers,
as being "the stoy at home, never did any
thing traitors." Then he lays down the
standard, of loyalty ; the rest of his commu
nication is -sarcastic declumaticn. With
the above ideas before me, I om not sur
prised to find the gentleman subscribing
himself "Unum;'1 he ought lo have added
"Monstrum Jlorrendum," with which Unum
must necessarily cgrcc according to my
Latin grammar. Now, why is the idea of
no sympathy for rebels erroneous ?
1st. Because it is in direct opposition to
the teachings of divine truth ; to its grand
principle of love 5 to its forgiving and char.
liable spirit. To quote passages in proof
of this would be an insult to the intelligence
of this community. I therefore omit them.
2J. If tlid idea of Mr. Umuu would be
acted upon, its tendency would be, not to
change the feeling of rebelism in the van
quished, and especially in the "stuy-at-home
traitors," but it would only strengthen it,
and perhaps manifest itself in eels. To
prove that this will be Ihe effect, I refer the
gentleman to Romans XII. 20 : "If thy ene
my hunger feed him, if he thirst give him
drink, lor by so doing you shall heap coals
of fire on his head." Consequently, by not
so doing you will freeze all Ihe affections
and human feelings, and after awhile you
will have demons in human form instead of
passive " stay-at-home trtitors."
The amnesty proclamation was an apple
of discord in reheldom j and thus it will
ever be in all such combinations and con
spiracies. In proof of the above position, I
refer the gentleman to the following histor
ical facts : 1st. To (he caoiure of Jerusalem
by Tilus 5 2d. To Julius Caesar in his tri
umph over Pompey i 3d, To Napoleon I in
his conduct towards the Bourbons from
which he will see that not only is the "Lux
venialis," but also the "Lux Hisloriae,"
against his principle of revenge.

Ma. Editor : Through the medium of
your neat little paper I would call the at
tention of the publio, or our "oily Fathers,
to the frequent habits of drunkenness and
rioting that so often disgraoe our otherwise
peaceable town. Will our city council
adopt tome laws lo put a stop to such
soenes, that to olten offend the tenses, and
shock the moral sensibilities of our more
peaceable citizens, by a disorderly few P
Some attribute all the blame to the retail
liquor and beer dealers. Whilst they are
to some extent responsible, they are not the
only ones. All (or nearly to) of the gro
cery stores in our city keep whiskey to sell
by quantity of from a small bottle to bar
rel. In each establishment it to be found
the ready glass tumbler for the hU key toper
It is used as a custom catcher. Some of them
say "they could Dot tell goods if they did not
give their customert the privilege of going
to the barrel and taking a dram." "That
o'hen do it and they are compelled lo do it
also, although it is a heavy tax on them at the
present prices of whiskey." Any man
that will take the trouble to watch the
"modus operaiidi" on any'sion when
there are many from the cosLirybut it is
not confined exclusively to the country cus
tomers by any means,) you will tee them
walk in, give the proprietor a wink, (which
they very well understand to mean, I want
a snifter.) After taking a "stiff horn"
they past on to the next house to be treated
in like manner, until they go the rounds.
In a short time their hearts become softened,
their purse strings become somewhat re
laxed, they meet wilh a friend, that they
want to treat, they take him into the nearest
dram-shop and get finished. When they
get a fw pulls at the merchants' barre1,
they become suddenly very rich, the dime
that looked (to them) a few moments before
as large as the full moon, was suddenly
changed to an "insignificant rag," nothing
but "Uncle Sam's trash," hardly fit to buy
"raw rot-gut." Now what is the result?
You, Mr- Editor, as well as every other
customer, is taxed to pay for the whiskey
given to the toper. You pay far it in every
pound of coffee and sugai you purchase.
The merchant must make it up some where.
He cannot afford to give ten or twenty
barrels of whiskey away that costs him
$2 50 per gallon, every year. It goes into
the expense account, and hat to be made up
on the general stock. This is plain in the
minds of all. The dram-shop keeper is
very often held responsible for the drunk
eness, when in fact he only puts the finish
ing lick on the job already well executed.
There is another class that should be looked
to, viz: Those secret dens of the devil,
that sell at their private houses, at out of
'he way places, without keeping grocery
in violation of all laws. Such should be
brought to justice by some city ordinance.
To get rid of such, I would suggest to our
city council that they pass an ordinance :
1st. That no citizen, or honsehol ler shall
keep on his premises, if a private house,
any spirituous or malt liquor in quantity
greater than one gallon, without a special
permit, (except (or mechanical purpo
ses,) under a heavy fine and confiscation
of the liquor.
2nd. That no merchant shaH hereafter
give away any liquor to be drank on his
premises, under fine or confiscation.
3rd. That any person keeping liquor or
beer for salo shall do so only at his shop or
store, on some public street, with a sign
over the door giving his name and business.
4lh. That the sale of intoxicating liquor
shall not be allowed at any place within the
city limits except in that part of Ihe city
known as the business part of the town, the
council to determine the fact.
It might be proper also for all liquor
dealers (o have a sign over hit doer with
the words "Drunkards made here,"
painted in large letters.
These might be considered stringent
laws, but we should all surrender a part
of our rights for the good of the whole.
