(From the Oshawa, Canada, Vindicator.] Mr. Moffat's Lectures. Bro. Moffat has just concluded his course of lectures in our County, and on the whole they have been a brilliant success. Every where the brethren testify that they never lis tened to such lectures before. On last Friday night he gave the closing lecture in this place. The hall was crowded to its utmost capacity, and though Mr. Moffat was so worn down by his labors that it seemed almost impossible for him to speak when he first commenced, yet he held that vast audience, many of whom were standing, in breathless attention for over an hour and a half, and closed with an original aud brilliant peroration that thrilled like an electric shock through every heart. We un derstand that Bro. Moffat intends returning to Canada again, and making it his permanent ! home, and we hope the Sons, aud all friends of j Temperance, will rally arouud him and sustaiu ! him in his noble efforts, else he may leave us ! as he did before, worn down by toil and crush ed by poverty. Bro. M. is a man that will win laurels in any laud. We got a peep at his scrap book, and to show that we have not formed too high an estimate of his powers, we ; give a few of the many notices of the press which he received while travelling in the ' neighboring Republic:— The South Carolina Son of Temperance says:—“What shall we say of Moffat; the pat- i ois upon whose tongue proclaims him to be ; from the classic land of ‘Scots wha ha’ wi’ I Wallace bled.’ At one time the touching mel ody of his voice in sympathy with surtering humanity, drew tears from all, and again each manly heart burned with indignation, as in terribly vivid language he depicted the wrongs inflicted on our race by the rum curse. But who can do justice to Moffat? Not us, and we forbear the attempt.” The Spirit of the Age, North Carolina. «ays: “Those who neglected to go and hear Moffat have missed a treat that perhaps they may never have the opportunity to get again. We had heard all the stars of the Temperance Re form, but such genial humor, such beautiful noetic allusions, anti such transcendent, nero rations, we never beard combined in one speech before. Without fear of contradiction, we pronounce Moffat one of the greatest of living orators.” The ChristUn Star awl Herald says;—“We ! have heard Moffat, the great temperance ora- j tor, and though our expectations were raised to a pretty higli standard, they were more than realized. Moffat does not make so much dra matic display as Gough, but in classic purity of style, poetic beauty of composition, and ter- j rible power of denunciation, he far excels him.” Mr. Moffat is now in Durham County .where he commenced a course of lectures, in Bow manville, on Monday evening. He will next go to Toronto and Kingston, and to Portland, Maine, and will spend most of the winter lec turing in the latter State. He will probably ; return this way to his home, in Ohio, near j Cincinnati, in the Spring, when he promises to 1 give the public a brief sketch of his life previ ous to entering the lecturing Held, which will serve to show that he has no small cause to cry out unceasingly against the drinking usa ges of society, atid the sale of alcoholic poi son, throughout this Christian land. EF-A Botanical Medallist and Prizeman of King’s College, London,” writes to the Times: —”At this juncture a number of ingenious and well-intentioned inventors step in and declare that we have in our own country stores of 11- I bres which may be transformed into a mater- j ial of the same nature as cotten. I have ob tained samples of most of the fibres proposed as substitutes, and 1 have submitted them to careful examination under high powers of the microscope. I find them all to be varieties of woody fibre, more or less split up and divided, varying In length and thickness of the fibriltee. \ The fibres of all the specimens I have seen are nevertheless uniform in the following particu lars:—They are all solid, inelastic (or brittle), with joints and rough edges, showing where the bundles of JtbrillrE have been torn apart. Having some practical acquaintance with cot ton-spinning and weaving, I assert that the above qualities render woody fibre unfitted to be used as a substitute for cotton.unless a very considerable modification be made in our cot ton machinery. The fibres which have been exhibited may probably be useful as substitutes for linen if they can be largely! produced at a cheap rate; but the woody fibre (from which all the proposed substitutes are drawn) can never be used under the same condition as cot ton, which consists of vegetable hairs, hollow, elastic, ribbon-shaped, and spiral, with smooth edges and surfaces. If we want a perfect sub stitute for cotton we must not look for it in a woody fibre,” Mr, Harben, the gentleman who commis sioned his lawyers, Messrs. Philips and Son. to announce to the world, through the medium of an influential London paper, the fact that he had discovered a substitute, has been in Manchester, and had an interview with the Chamher of Commerce in that city: but the result is less encouraging than could be wished. The material which he proposes is one largely used by upholsterers for bed and sofa stuffing, called alva, or grass-wrack, better known to botanists as the Zostero Jlfarina, which abounds on the shores of rivers,_a species of sea-weed, much used in Sweden as a ma nure, nnd which pigs and horses are said to I eat. The stems are branched, two or three feet long, and Mr. Harben contends that the fibre might readily be rendered available for cotton spinning purposes,—.n opiniou, howev er, which has yet to be substantiated. ihe Iwo \ oices.—Fernando Wood, Dem ocratic candidate for Congress, recently said ! in an elctioneering speech: I “He believed the South is still devoted to the Union, and that she will come back to the Union if we treat her kindly and extend to her the rule of a Democratic administration. If he should be elected, he would endeavor to Stamp such a policy upon the actions of the Administration. The election of Seymour ' would make the Administration tremble. This war must be settled by concessions on both sides. There must be conciliation. There must lie yieldidg by both sections of the coun try. W e cannot do this by generals in the field, but by our representatives in Congress. Non-combatants must settle this unfortunate war. We must elect men of the Democratic party if we expect to have this bloodshed ter minated. The Democracy alone can do it.” On the other hand, hear what Col. Hamilton, fresh from the rebel rule in Texas, and pro foundly conversant with all the secret springs of the rebellion, says: “There were those in our midst who pro posed to overcome the rebellion by extending the hand of friendship to the disloyal people of the South—to bear down upon them in gal lant array, with the sword held back in the right hand, and the olive-branch foremost in the left. Why, the people of the South had again Hud again passed resolutions that they would nevei treat with the Government of the United States for peace upon any terms but independence, not only for the slates engaged in the rebellion, but as to those still true and loyal, where the institution of slavery existed. And they had manifested by their action that, they were in serious, sober, desperate earnest ness to make good their declaration. These gentlemen who talked about conquering with the olive-branch, he would ask who it,was they supposed they had to conqner at the South ? Did they want to Icing the olive branch to the down-trodden tnillons who are beseeching the Throne of grace for help and relief from the tyranny under which they are groaning? Be not deceived. These wanted to sec us come armed cap-a-pie, with swords and bayonets. They wanted to see us come with power to strike the manacles from their limbs, and they would rush to meet us more than half way, and embrace us with tears and joy.” An Intelligent Negros Opinion.—A j correspondent of the Philadelphia Press, from Jackson, lean., describes a contraband guide: Aleck’s idea of tile cause of the war, it* probable results, the best mode of action for the negroes, and the real value of the present change in their situation, and iu fact of every thing relating to the war, were remarkably shrewd and mature. Aleck does not look like a negro. He is not darker than many white men, and his features have but little of the negro cast. Said he, “I want to see this country come down. You cau't bring them down, Mr. -, without you ruin them.— I’ride built them up, and nothing but poverty will bring them down. You may take away everything that they have hut their darkies, and they stand it very well; but as soon as you take a nigger they begin to weep and wail, j and gnash their teeth. You take the ground | right out from under them. If you take cot- j ton they can plant more. If you take horses and mules they can get more. So with corn, i and all kinds of produce. But you take a J nigger, and you cut off their supply. The ; nigger is the producing machine. He turns ' °*t everything. If you take him away it is like taking the principal; ami if you only take cotton, it is like taking only the interest ; more will come next year. Then their pride is in it, too. They hate to lose a slave; it makes them mad. They tell us all sorts of foolish Stories almut the Yankees. But I tell the nigger folks about me they ain’t true.— Why, the Yankees are the smartest people in »!, - —-1-1. VI...-1-- , .... all our tool*, mid clothes, and everything.”— “Do you think you would be any better off,” I asked, “if the Yankees should conquer and occupy this country?” “Well, I don’t know, said he; “we can't be any worse off. I tell all the colored people about here if they have got good homes they had I vet ter stay where they are till the thing is settled. They can’t be any worse off, and if they run off they have no homes, and perhaps can't get work; and if they go North they don’t understand the country, and it is too cold. "TnE Financial Prospect.—Some of the democratic orators and presses, in order to prove the administration a failure, are exag gerating the financial difficulties of the gov ernment. Such efforts tend to promote the very evils they pretend to deprecate. Mr. Forney wiites to the Philadelphia Press some counteracting statements:— “The financial future of the government is singularly encoring. No subject has been used with more deleterious effect against the admin istration than that of taxation, except, indeed, the dimensions of the national war debt. The secretary of the treasury has been forced to submit in silence to the misrepresentation of the adversaries of th ■ war, and experienced observers have seen with pain the success of these misrepresentations. If the rebellion was a novelty, all the expedients believed to be es sential to its extinction were experiments. We could not stand by and see the rebellion progress without resorting to the severest al ternatives for its annihilation. And now that the period is at hand, when this great revolt against human freedom is to lie checked and closed out, we may also anticipate, in practi cal results, a satisfactory solution of that great financial experiment which has disturbed Hie wisest ami most experienced statesmen in this and ottier countries. The time has indeed not arrived, when the fruits of the revenue meas ures of Congress may be accurately set forth. Enough is known, however, to enable careful observers to state that the tax bill, judging from the reports already received at the treas ury, will produce an almost incalculable rev enue—a revenue sufficient to pay the interest on the public debt itself, and to leave a large margin for the necessary expenses of the gov ernment as long as the war continues. One very competent autboritty suites that the revenue derivable from the tax system w ill exceed by at least fifty per cent the amount contemplated by sanguine framers of the bill. It is true that much alarm has lieen created ] by the late extravagant premiums on gold, and ; by the consequent deprivation of the national curency: but if the expectations of the head of the treasure board, upon results already as certained, are only partially fulfilled, this a larm will be speedily and happily dissipated. One filet must not lie forgotten, that while labor must, for a short time, submit to the loss occasioned by a depreciated currency, and hence to the inflation of the prices of many of the necessaries of life, there will be little of direct taxation upon labor, and the capital must bear the immediate burdens of the war. Why should not those who work at home be as tree to suffer for their country as those who | fight lor us in the Southern States? The ill- j liux of money into the treasury in the shape of taxes upon luxuries, salnries, remunerative real estates, bonds, checks, and all descriptions of hills, leaving small farmers and operatives almost entirely unscathed, indicates a wonder tul revenue. An intelligent assessor in the city of New York says that Iroin all these sources in that metropolis and Brooklyn alone, a net revenue of one hundred millions ! will be secured. And if this is so of a single locality, what may we not expect from the country at large? I oppose these healthy and cheerlul (acts to that traitorous disaffection Which, w hile refusing to denounce the rebel lion, busies itselt in deceiving the free people of the tree States, and in weakening our pub lic servants at the head of the administration and the federal government.
