. SELLING RUM TO SLAVES.
"A man has been fined two hundred dollars in New Orleans for selling rum to a slave. His license was taken from him, and he is in capacitated for the trade in the State forever." This piece of intelligence, taken from a New Orleans paper, suggests several very important considerations. We present them in form of qnestions and answers, allowing the wine-drinking slave owner to speak for him self in the answers. Question.?What harm is there in selling liquor to a slave ? 1 Answer.?None, per se, but it is forbidden I by law, and there/ore the fine and punish ment. Q.?But why is it forbidden ? Surely the law would not prohibit it, unless the act was regarded as injurious to the slave. A.?It is found to be injurious to the slave to sell him liquor. It leads him into bad habits, and injures the value of our property. Q.?What bad habits does it lead him into? A.?It makes him careless and inattentive to his business, causes him to idle away his time and hang about the drinking houses, throws him into bad company, leads him to tell lies to conceal his misconduct, involves him in broils and fights, and various crimes, and makes a bad servant of him in every res pect. Q.?Is it possible that the use of liquor has that effect on a slave ? A.?No doubt of it. It would be impossible to exaggerate the evil consequences of the practice. Q.?But is it not cruel to cut off your ser vants from the enjoyment of strong drink? A.?No. It is for their good as well as our own, that we do it. Q.?Certainly an occasional glass would not have such bad effects. Why do you not modify the law to punish the rumseller only when he sells liquor in excess to your slaves ? A.?Experience has proved that they are not to be trusted. The slaves do not know when to stop, and if we allow them to have it occasionally, they will contrive to get too much. Q.?But that is their fault, not the liquor seller's. Why do you punish the liquor seller for that? A.?-Because it is the only way to prevent the evil. The negroes will drink if they can get it, and the grog-sellers will sell if they can get the money, and we have found that no half-way course will answer. However plau sible in theory, it won't'do in practice. The Gordian knot must be cut at once. The only way to defend ourselves and protect our ne groes is to prohibit the sale of liquor to them in all quantities, and in all circumstances. Q.?Well, I think your reasoning is very good. I have one more question to ask. Why do you not prohibit the rumsellers from selling liquor to your children ? A.?Ahem! That's a different ca^e. We do not choose to put our sons on a level with niggers. Q.?It strikes me that you put them below the "niggers." A.?What do you mean, sir? Q.?I mean that you take better care of your slaves than ofyour free born sons. Passing through the coffee houses in this city, I noticed many young men drinking wine and liquors, and" showing the same bad effects as you say liquor produces in your slaves. They were lounging about and idling their time away, not attending to business, getting into bad com pany and bad habits, cursing and swearing, and often fighting. You know that fights with knives and dirks are every day occurrences among your children, at these coffee houses. If you prohibit and punish the sale of liquor to your slaves for their own good, does not the good of your children demand that they should not be supplied with noxious drink ? A.?Well, well, there is some difficulty in getting over that. I really think it would be better for the community if the grog-sellers were prohibited from selling liquor to young men. But how would it do for me to advo cate that measure when I am myself in the habit of indulging a little ? Would you have me to be so inconsistent ? Q.?By no means. I would have you be consistent, by conforming your conduct with your convictions, and not by bending your doc-, trine to suit your practice. If it would be for the good of your slaves, and of your children, to cut them off from the pernicious and dan gerous indulgence, will you not set them the example of abstinence? Perhaps it might be for your own good also. A.?Stranger you worry me with your ques tions. You have got me to spin a rope, and now want me to hang myself with it. But if it must be so, I give up. This selling and drinking rum is after all a devilish business, I know it. I wish there was not a rum shop in the universe. It would be a blessing if every ruraseller in our land were hung on a gallows. It is foolish, and weak, and wicked in myself, and others like me, to encourage and uphold them by buying and drinking their accursed poison. 7 are a set ?f vampires?black hearted hirelings, who would sell the souls of their countrymen, and their own souls too, for good measure, to the? Q.?Softly, friend; what hath moved thee to such wrath ? A-?' Tis enough to warm up any man's feelings to view the thing in its proper light. But mind ye, stranger, this is confidential. If you were to tell out of doors what I have said, it would almost ruin my business.?S. C. Tern. Standard. A ROMANCE IN REAL LIFE. Mrs. Child's letters from New York, which have lately been published by Wiley & Put nam; contain some very interesting reminis cences, among which we find the following very curious incident which occurred in the family of the authoress, while the yellow fever was raging in this city.?N. E. Wash. "One of my father's brothers, residing in Boston at that time, became a victim to the pestilence. When the first symptoms appear ed, his wife sent the children into the country, | and herself remained to attend upon him. Her friends warned her against such rashness. They told her it would be death to her, and no benefit to him; for he would soon be too ill to know who attended upon him. These arguments made no impression upon her affec tionate heart. She felt that it would be a life long satisfaction to her to know who attended upon him, if he did not. She accordingly staid, and watched him with unremitting care. This, however, did not avail to save him. He grew worse and worse, and finally died. Those who went round with the death carts visited the chamber, and seen that the end was near. They now came to take the body. His wife Tefused to let the body go. She told me that she never knew how to account for it, for though he was perfectly cold and rigid, and to ?;vcry appearance quite dead, there was a powerful impression on her mind that life was not extinct. The men were overborne by the strength of her conviction, though their own reason was opposed to it. The half hour again cam<#h:ound, and again was heard the solemn words, ' Bring out your dead.' The wife again resisted their importunities; but this time the men were more resolute. They said the duty assigned to them was a painful one, but the health of the city required punctual obedience to the orders they received; if they ever ex pected the pestilence to abate, it must be by a prompt removal of the dead, and immediate fumigation of the infected apartments. She pleaded and pleaded, and even knelt to them in an agony of tears, coutinually saying, 41 am sure he is not dead.' The men represented the utter absurdity of such an idea; but finally overcome by her tears, again departed. With trembling haste she renewed her efforts to re store life. She raistd his head, rolled his limbs in hot flannel, and placed hot onions on his feet. The dreaded half hour again came round, and found him as cold and rigid as ever. She renewed her entreaties so desperately, that the messengers began to think a little gentle force would be necessary. They ac cordingly attempted to remove the body against her will; but she threw herself upon it, and slung to it with such frantic strength, that they could not easily loosen her grasp. Im pressed by the remarkable energy of her will, they relaxed their efforts. To all their remon strances she answered, ?If you bury him, you shall bury mie with him.' At last, by dint of reasoning on the necessity of the case, they obtained from her a promise, that, if he show ed no signs of life before they again came round, she would make no opposition to the removal. Having gained this respite, she hung the watch upon the bedpost, and renew, ed her efforts with redoubled zeal. She placed kegs of hot water about him, forced brandy between his teeth, breathed into his nostrils, and held hartshorn to his nose; but still the body lay motionless and cold. She looked anxiously at the watch; in five minutes the promised half hour would expire, and those dreadful voices would be heard passing through the street. Hopelessness came over her; she dropped the head she had been sustaining; her hand trembled violently; and the harts horn she had been holding was spilled on the allid face. Accidentally, the position of the ead had become slightly tipped backward, and the powerful liquid flowed into his nos trils. Instantly there was a short quick grasp ?a struggle?his eyes opened; and when the death-men came again, they found him sitting up in the bed. He is still alive, and has en joyed unusually good health. Death from Intemperance.?Mr. Luther Allen, of West Springfield, Ireland Parish, was found dead in the woods near the road side in Old Chickopee, last Monday morning. A coroner's inquest was called by Col. Harvy Chapin, postmaster in this town, which re turned a verdict of "Death from intemperance and exposure." Col. Chapin informs us that the most remarkable instance of canine fidelity and affection he ever witnessed was exhibited iniuest. The dog of the deceased, faithful ever, was found keeping watch by the body of his dead master, and would permit no person to approach it. In vain coaxing and caresses were used ;jhe faithful sentinel felt the sacredness of his trust, and would not per mit it to be violated. One moment he would lick the face and hands of his inanimate mas ter, otherwise evincing his affections by the most piteous and touching moans, and the next would turti with angry defiance to keep those at bay who attempted to approach; and it was not till he had been secured by a strong tether, that the coroner's jury could attend to the bu siness for which they had been called together, or the body be removed.?Ex paper. The Wine Party.?A few years ago a company of young men assembled around the table, for the purpose of enjoying the " feast of reason and the flow of soul." One of the party who was a mere novice in drinking, while flushed with wine, and in an unguarded moment, made use of expressions at which one of his social party of friends took excep tions, an altercation ensued, and the offended party gave a peremptory challenge to the young man above alluded to. According to a custom handed down to us from the Goths, Huns, Vandals, and Veutones, called the code of honor, he was induced to accept it. In the morning, when reason had resumed her seat, he found himself in a dreadful situation?duty would have prompted him not to have gone to what is miscalled the "field of honor," but a morbid state of public opinion prompted him to meet his challenger, who was a practised duellist; they met and this young man fell a victim to a ruthless custom at the first fire. He was borne home mortally wounded to his widowed mother?for he was her only son and died the following day.?Ex. Paper. Temperance in Lowell.?The Lowell Courier says that Dr. Jewett lectured to a full house in Lowell, on Sunday evening, on Tem perance. After he had concluded, one hun dred and nineteen persons signed the pledge. A week ago Sunday night, he gave a lecture, and obtained one hundred and twenty-five signers to the pledge. This looks well. Putting a Laughing face upon a serious matter.?While General Jackson was operat ing in the Creek country, he invariably gave orders that all encampments should be made near the main body of the army, as well for safety, as to prevent surprise and alarm; but he had one officer, Capt. G., who, although a brave man, was rather lawless, and disposed to prowl and " bush-whack" about on his own hook and account. When the camp fires were lighted at night, his would frequently be seen off on some hill by itself, a mile, perhaps, from the others, and in a very exposed situation. Gen. Jackson finally got as tired of giving his orders in relation to encampment, as Capt. G. was of receiving them ; and seeing his fire one night on a distant hill, the commander sent an aid to arrest the brave but eccentric officer. " Captain G., I am ordered to take your sword from you." " You are." " I am." Well, take the sword to General Jackson, and tell him to keep the rusty old thing. I only gave a dollar and a half for it when new, and 1 know where I can get one twice as good to-morrow for the same money." The Gen. was so well pleased with his independent manner, that he returned his sword immedi ately. THE ORIGIN OF "HAIL COLUMBIA." In the year 1798, when patriotic feelings pervaded the country, and when there were several parties in the field, Mr. Fox, a young player, who was more admired for his vocal than histrionic powers, called one moraine upon his friend Mr. Hopkinson, and after stat ing that the following evening had bedn ap pointed for his benefit, and expressing great fear for the result, as not a single box had been taken, begged him to do something in his behalf. "If," said Fox, "you will write ( me some patriotic verses to the tune of the President's march, I feel sure of a full house. Several of the people about the theatre have attempted it, but they have come to the con clusion that it cannot be done; yet I think you may succeed." Mr. Hopkinson retired to his j study, and in a short time wrote the first verse and chorus, which were submitted to Mrs. Hopkinson, who sang them to a piano accom paniment, and proved the measure to be com patible and in keeping. In this way the se cond and other verses were written ; and when Mr. Fox returned in the evening, he received with delight the song as it now stands. The following morning small handbills announced that Mr. Fox would sing anew patriotic song, &c. The theatre was crowded; the song was sung, and received with rapture; it was re peated eight time?, and again encored ; and when sung the ninth time, the whole audience stood up and joined in the chorus. Night after night "Hail Columbia" cheered the visiters of | the theatre, and in a very few days it was the universal song of the boys in the streets, from one end of the city to the other. Nor was the author of this truly national song?a song which met the entire approbation of all parties of the day?forgotten. The street in which he resided was crowded, and "Hail Columbia" broke on the stillness of midnight from an hundred patriotic Voices. THE CONSUMMATION. 'Twas twilight; seated at the door of a moss-covered cottage, was the pride of the village, lovely Phoebe. Her finely moulded form?her exquisite and voluptuous bust?her classic and beautifully chisseled features?her sweet lips?teeth of pearly whiteness?and such eyes! all combined, 'twas enough to melt the soul of a very anchorite! Beside this angel knelt a youth, whose cheek, pale as ashes, told the tale?he was in love! " Tell me this night my fate. Keep me in agony no longer. Tell me what sacri fice I shall undergo for you?you, my soul's idol! Command me to perform a pilgrimage around this earth on burning coals, and it shall be done. Any, thing, any thing?but cast me not off". Plant a dagger in my heart, but keep me in suspense no longer! Say, lovely Phoebe ?will you?will you be mine?" He trembled ?his heart throbbed?she saw he was ready to swoon?a crimson Hush mantled her cheek? 41 Like the rich sunset 'neath its Italia's sky," She took his hand in her tiny fingers, put her! smiling lips to his ear, and whispered?" Obed, I shan't be nothing else." Specs of War.?Some 20,000 muskets and carbines have been removed from the United States arsenal at Augusta, Ga., within the last ten days, and shipped down the railroad to Charleston, S. C., destined for Texas, as we understand; together with several field pieces, and a large quantity of powder and lead. This is removing the deposites, with a certainty of doing a killing business. Our informant told us that some of those cannon are the identical ones taken at the surrender of General Bur goyne. At any rate, they are of British man ufacture.?Hamburg Journal. Mexico.?Advices from Vera Cruz, as late as the 27th ult., are brought by the French brigr-of-war Mtrcure, which arrived at Pensa cola the 11th inst. As far as we could learn, no papers or letters have reached the city by this conveyance. The verbal information is to the effect that no embargo or declaration of | war had been pronounced. Things were pre cisely in the state they were at previous ad vices by the Relamvago. Among American residents, considerable apprehension prevailed, and many of them from the interior were re paying to Vera Cruz, with the intention of I embarking before hostilities commenced. We think it probable that the Water Witch, whose arrival has been daily expected here, is detain ed, waiting to ascertain whether there is to be any war.?New Orleans Bulletin. THIS DAY!

Those who have read Sargent's Temper ance Tales, will rocognize the above as the language of a Mrs. Broughton, who carried her opposition to temperance societies to ex tremes, although she admitted that they were " well enough for the vulgar; and when her only son had become, under her baneful influ ence, a beastly drunkard, her anxiety for him was lost in the fear that Mr. Broughton might, as a consequence, be induced to join a tem perance society, by which they would lose caste. In the progress of things, a change has come over the state of society; and now Mrs. B. would find it necessary, if she would be really genteel and respectable, to identify herself with the cause to which she was so much opposed. While we have cause for gratulation at this change, we have to mourn that there are many whose example ought to be exhibited on the side of every good word and work, but whose influence is deleterious; not because they have objections to the cause in itself, but because they are controlled by such feelings as influenced Mrs. Broughton. They feel that for them to sign the pledge would be acknowledging that it was necessary for their safety, forgetting that they owe some thing to the community in which they live, and that they are required to mortify their pride lor the sake of those who are not blessed with the same moral firmness. The erroneous idea that the lover of wine can continue to in dulge in it, however pure, with impunity, is fast disappearing j but those who will even indulge in its use moderately, or iu anything else that can intoxicate, bids that defiance to public opinion which no one will venture to do, having a repulatioo-lajose; for he that is reckless to the opinions of the virtuous and the good, must be very far gone. What lady would hazzard uniting her fortunes with such a young man ? The responsibility of the ladies is very great at the present day. They more than the other sex give tone to society. On their devoted heads is visited to a great extent the curses of intemperance. To them it pecu liarly belongs to speed on, by their influence, the car which is now moving onward so ma jestically ; but, alas! there are too many Mrs. Broughton's, who stand aloof and virtually adopt her language, that it is " well enough for the vulgar." They plead that they must still give it to their friends. Cases are not uncommon where reformed inebriates have been induced by the persuasive eloquence of a lady, to put the chalice to their lips, and whose course was speedily downward to the drunkard's grave. An instance might be men tioned, which occurred in this city not long since, but we forbear. Let the ladies of the present day beware how they trifle with the souls of men, and with the happiness of fathers and mothers, husbands and wives, sons and daughters. Our public men, too, have great responsi bility resting on them, touching this subject; and it is with pleasure we record the fact, that many of the rulers in our land are with us heart and hand. But we have to regret that there are prominent exceptions, and that in temperance stalks abroad and in high places. It is not long since a half dozen baskets of champagne, or some other pain, was deposited at the door of one of the Secretaries, in sight of many government officers. Does the Secre tary know that some one or more might not have been injured by the exhibition; but what does that matter? "Tarry long at the wine" he will, without regard to consequences; and if admonished on the subject, he will in sub stance reply, temperance is "well enough for the vulgar." To such we would say, the time will come, and surely come, when you will have to render an account for all these things. THE TOTAL ABSTINENCE CAUSE. Those who examine the " Temperance do ings," under our Local head, will perceive that the Total Abstinence cause was never in a more prosperous condition than at present. For the last three months meetings have been held on Sundays, and every night in the week, at some point or other in the District, out doors, when the weather would permit; and it seems that the workmen in this cause have been specially favored, in respect to the Sab bath meetings?for but on two or three occa sions has the weather been such as to prevent an assemblage. During that time, from fifty to one hundred have been reclaimed weekly; and but few of those who now sign the pledge return to their cups. Our citizens, generally, are not aware that so much good is being done in their midst; they perceive nothing uncom mon going on?no outburst of enthusiasm on the part of those carrying forward this noble enterprise. All is calmness, and the whole souled philanthropists arc hardly noticed. And who are they, engaged ia doing this holy work of charity to their fellow man? Almost to a man .they are the hard-working mechanics men apparently of but little influence?who, after their daily toil, congregate, for the pur pose of persuading their fellow men, by the force of nature's eloquence alone, to abandon the ruinous practice of using stimulating drinks. To such men as Cammack, Owens, Thomp* son, Smith, Whipple, Walsh, Wilson, Beck, and many others, and above all, to Savage, this community owe their present prosperity, in a great degree. Through the efforts of these men, an advantageous change has been effected in society; our laws are much better respected than formerly?our churches are be ing well filled with good and true members from the ranks of the Temperance army, and drunkenness and rowdyism is of rare occur rence. If men, holding an humble but honest po sition in society, can accomplish so much, what would be the state of society, were men of acknowledged influence to engage in the work?our clergymen, lawyers* doctors, and men of wealth? Is the work beneath such men, or do they consider it out of the line of their duty] We leave them to answer the questions. BANNER PRESENTATION. We have kept open our columns, until the last moment, expecting a full and correct ac count of the entire proceedings had at the pre sentation of a banner to Harmony Division No. 2, Sons of Temperance, of Alexandria, on' Tuesday last. We have been disappointed, however. Expecting to give the proceedings next week in full, we will now merely state, that the banner, which is truly splendid, was presented, through the Rev. Mr. Danforth, by the ladies of Alexandria, to Harmony Division, in reward, we presume, for their untiring de votion to the Total Abstinence cause. The Rev. gentleman, in presenting the banner, made a power appeal in behalf of the cause, and paid a high compliment to those engaged in the glorious work of reformation. P. W. P. Thomas N. Davy received the banner on the part of the Division; his reply to the re marks of Mr. Danforth, were decidedly the best we have ever heard on a similar occasion. The presentation took place in the market square, and was witnessed by a large and re spectable assemblage of ladies and gentlemen; indeed it appeared as though the citizens turned out en masse to witness the ceremony. The Divisions of the city and Georgetown were present to the number of about two hundred. After the benediction, the Order marched through the principal streets of the city; thence to the rooms over the market-house, where they partook of a splendid collation provided by Harmony Division. About 8 o'clock the Washington and Georgetown Divisions left for the city, and arrived ia good season. At night the teetotalers of Alexandria held a meeting in the market-house square; which was addressed by Mr. Wilson, of Georgetown, and the Rev. Mr. Matchett, of Washington. We learn that a large number subscribed to the glorious pledge at this meeting. On Monday last, an occurrence took place in our streets, between Wm. R. Elliott, Wm. Z. Kendall, and JosrAH E. Bailey, which re sulted in the instantaneous death of Mr. Ken dall, and Mr. Bailey's receiving a severe wound in the left arm. Mr. Elliott surrendered him self to the law. The case now being under judicial investigation, we consider it improper to give any of the rumors afloat on the subject. THE " COVENANT." We have received, from Chas. Calvert, Jr., esq., agent for the District, the August number of this work. We are really gratified to notice that this periodical will be continued in the name, and for the benefit, of the widow of its late respected publisher, P. D. G. Sire Roeert Neilson. No doubt the I. 0. 0. F. will rally to the support of their brother's widow, in this, her hour of affliction. This work contains information of great im portance to members of the Order; original poetry, and good, solid and entertaining prose, also finds a place among its pages. PUBLIC MEETING OF UNITED BROTHERS OF TEMPERANCE. Association No. 2, U. Brothers of Temperance, D. C., will hold a public meeting on MONDAY evening, the 25th instant, at 7? o'clock, at the Ebenezcr Methodist Church, Navy Yard; on which occasion the Rev. F. S. Evans, as also the Rev. C. A. Davis, president of Association No. 3, of U. Brothers of Temperance, and John C. Harkness, esq., are expected to address the meeting. The Association will meet in front of their hall at 7 o'clock, on Monday evening, whence they will march in procession to the church.
