When we consider that it was onlv about the dawn

Our next visit was to Burton-on-Trent, a place
famed throughout the civilized world tor the excel
lence oi its beer, the high character and intelligence
ot iu brewers, cud the magnificence and complete
ness ol its brewenos. ...
Our visit here was of a peculiarly interesting
cbaraoier. A large portion ot tne city is appropriated
to tbis one especial branch of mauulaeturo, and,
from a distant elevation, would present the appear
ance of one vast btewery, claiming a rank amongst
the wonders of the world.
The most prominent firms eniravod in tho business
are those ol Messrs. Bass, KatchlTj, Grattau & Co.,
and Mes rs. iSamuel Allsopp & Sons, i ne former

We wore also informed thut they had eignt acres
of land covered with casks of beer, piled three tiers
high, which, previous to our arrival, had beon dis
tributed amongst their various agencies throughout
Tne operations of Messrs. Allsopp & Sons are
scarcoly loss extensive. They have two brewerios in
operation, and they are eooally celebrated lor the
character ot their beer. Their new brewery Is, per
haps, the most periect and complete establishment
winch has ever been erected. Their makings,
cooperages, etc, are on their own premises, which
cover an area ot titty-two acres of ground.
lhe counting-house of the new brewery is one
hundred aud twenty feet square, subdivided by
glass partitions ana handsomoiy furnished. Each
department, including the post office, is thoroughly
systematized, and arranged lor their business. They
have duphcatos of all brewing utensils in order that
their business may not, at any timn, oe ioteirupied.
Their utensils tor masbing, tormenting, and finish
ing their beer are of wood, and the entire arrange
ment is such that space and labor aro economized to
the best advantage. The two storage rooms at the
new brewery aro one hundred and twenty fcot in
width and five hundred and ten feet in length.
Every cask sent out, of wliion they have about
four hundred thousand, is numbered and registered,
and tbey can turn at any moment to tho book
and page where it is entered and toll you
where any particular cask is. Any deficiency on
the returu of the casks must be made up
and settled for once a vear, at a lixed period, that
the aocount may be balanced. Thev also employ a
corps oi chemists, whoso duty It is to submit to
known testa the beer in preens ot manuiacture, in
order to secure its ultimate perfection.' ,

It is well knowu that the brewers in London espe
cially control a large proportion of thepublio houses
w here beer is sold I hoy either own or lease them,
and le-let them to the publican, or advance money
on tliem. No beer is penult red to bo boxI, by the

In tbiu counoction we desire to call the attontlon
ot brewers and ma tsters in this couutry to the care
bestowed bv the matsters of Great Britain in the
selection ol llieir barley, and during the process oi
mulling it. Thev pass it either through a screen or
blowing machine, which separates too light grains
irom tbe heavier ones, and soli the former for b ed
tor cattio, confining tbo limiting to tho best grain.
The bariev iB not unduly hastened on tho floors, but
ample time is givon it to germinate, and it is care
fully and perlectly dried When thrown from tae
kilns, it passes over a screen, and the separation oi
tne root el is more thorough at this timo, when the
malt Is warm aud the root 1 i ts crisp, than attar the
malt becomes cool Immediate. y after this it is
taken and plaocd in bins, where it is covered with
tne rootlets ol the ma t about lour inches in depth,
to protect it from the ctlects of moisture, etc.
For malt floors tliey use a tile six inches square
and one inch thick, called ferro-uietallio squares,
which make a level, smooth, and durable floor. Tho
maitiugs of Messrs. Joseph Gilstrap & Sons, and J.
W. aud H. Braiisiou, of Newark-on-lreut (which
we visited), aro quite prominent establishments; tne
former producing about 80,000 quarters, or 640,000
bushels, of malt annually.
Dai lev, when of choice quality, Is often purchasod
late in the spring, aud. atior the close of the malting
aeuson, dried on the kilns bv a slow beat, without
impairing the strength ot the germ, and malted
early in the lollowing autumn.
Tbe superior quality ol the Encllah malt, with
winch, such care it taken, gives assurance to the
brewer that his beer will be oi pood quality and
flavor, If be bestows tho ordinary skid and attention
on tho brewing ot it.
We too! that we oannot lot this opportunity pass
without exprestiugthe bono that the nialuters of the
Culled Stales will be induced to adopt the same
caro in malting their bariev and oleunmg it. Too
Utile a tention has been given by many of them to
producing tuo best malt tbo bariev is capable 01,
nd we beg to remind thorn 01 the wisdom ot suou a
coarse In thus contributing to the prodnoilon of a
enpertor quality ot mait liquor, wbieb, from it ex
cellence and popularity, would greatly increase the
consumption, and produce a corresponding increase
In the oemand for malt. Nor can we too highly re
probate the oourse pursnedby some maltsters in pur
chasing interior qualities of barley, hurrying it
through the process ot malting, and tlirowin it on
the market in an Imperfect and damaged condition,
and, it purchased by the brewer, resulting in the
production ot an Infoiior quality 01 bter. and affect
ing tbe general interests of the business in disin
clining; the public to tbe use of it. '
Cvnmmjilion nf Halt Liquor in Great Itritai.
The manuiacture ot malt liquor is on the Inorease,
not onlytn ureat Britain, but also throughout all
Europe, and the consumption corresponds with the
manufactme In reference to the consumption of
beer tn England, the Chanoellor askst "lias the
Englishman changed bl nature? lias he ceased to
supply bimselt witn a uflio ent proportion of this
excellent and truly national drink V and then re
marks: "On the contrary, the figures all tend up
ward In 1841 the consumption of malt in Great
Britain w as 1 701 bushel per bead ot the population j
in I808 it was 1 7H8 por bead. IVow that 1 think fur
lushes evidence ot very handsome growth. Hut
bow stands tbe case Witn spiriisf During yoararter
year, during ibe reriod to which 1 am reforrlng,
additional burthens have been laid. In 1841 the
consumption per bead of spirits in Great Britain
wis -768 gallons, while In 18U3, to my groat Joy and
satisfaction, it bad sunk to 645."
"lhe consumption of ber in England," ho further
remarks, "in 1(20 was 6,000,01,0 t arrels, or at the
rate of a bariol per bead ; for tho population at that
time was only 6,000,000."
"In 1830 the consumption was 8,000.000 barrels,
and In that year, 1 regiet to say, it bad sunk irom
one barrel to two-thirds of a barrel per head. In
18o4. however, so Powerful were tbo restorative pro
cesses whioh bad been Introduced, and so much had
the consumption oi beor been assisted by tbe legis
lation wbich took placo in regard to spirits and
otherwise, we go back with a population of
20 (K'0,000 to the good old scale, and consume
20,000 000 ba'rois, or ixactly the same quantity per
bead as in 1722."
Again, "Malt we may say lies bait way between
the stronger liquors, such as wine and spirits, on
tho ono band, ai, a tea on the other. "
"1 grant that Deer ought to be faxed more lightly
than the wines, which compote with it, and more
lightly than spirit."
From these remarks of Mr. Gladstone, the policy
oi tbo British Government i quite obvious, viz, :
to derive tne greatest revenue Irom tho greatest con
sumption 01 beer, and the greatest revenue trom tho
smallest consumption of spirits; to encourage tho
consumption of the one and to discouiage the con
sumption of the other.
Through the courtesy and attention of the brewers
of Munich, we had ampin opportunities afforded us
of visiting their establishments. The most extensive
are those of Mr. Gabriel Sedletnjr and the Lion
Brewery. ihee biewerlc each cover an area of
ground equal to from eight to twelve acres in extent,
ana sie well and conveniently arranged, witu tho
most approved apparatus lor brewing. Tho annual
production oi each amounts to Iroin 800,000 to 400,000
cimeis (170,000 lo 280 000 barrels), tho chief port.cn
ot which is consumed within tbo city ot Munich and
its vicinitv. Tbe beer, whether present use or layor,
is of a light quality, and is stored in deep vaults
underlying tber buildings and grounds. I he beer is
preserved by lot, with which the vaults aro covered
and surrounded. In one instance 10,009 tons of ice
wire thus stored away in a single establishment,
'ibis is necessary lor its keeping qualities, as but a
small quantity of hops is useu in the brewing, the
public taste being avciso to a highly boppod beer,
lhe ma.tiiig ot their barley is conducted in cellars
underneath fheir breweries, lhe floors are com
post d of square blocks ot stone similar to those used
by lithographers for their drawings, aud they pre
sent a very level and smooth appearance, the stone
bemg admirably adapted for the purpose by its
cleanliness and durability.
lhe mult is dried on kilns of perforated iron
plates, arranged one above the other. The germi
nating barley is p rnuttcd to "wittier" Bomowhat
bclote being loaded on the kilns. Tho upper kiln
iB oaiieo llrt, and when the vapor has been ex
pelled, the grain is let down to the lower, when the
u) per kilu is again loaded with moist malt, tbe dry
ing being thus accomplished within twenty-four
hours trom the time it is taken irom tbe malting
floor. Jurf or peat is used ss fuel, the fumes ot
which are conducted through two large flues, one
above the other and nnderneatn the loner kiln.
Ibis rapid diying Is prcterred to the slower process
pursued in this country and in England.
1 he King's Brewery, situated near tbe central part
of Munich, is one ol the prominent institutions of
tbe ciiv. tinder tho control and management 01 the
Governmeni it furnishes to tho people, at cost, a htrht
and relreshing beer, at tho low price ot lour cents
per maa, containing la'her over a quart. Under the
long ari hway in iront ot the brewery, you enter a
door, band the empty mug to tbe tapster, who is
stationed by tne large cask always froshlv tapped,
by whom it is rilled, and, alter paying tor it, you
take a seat at one of the long tables In the crowdod
saloon it a seat is to be lound. T he daily sales here
amount to 8000 gallons.
Not less interesting was the visit of yonr Commis
stoiieis to tno monastery of St. Fiancis, suuutod
within the limits 01 the city. Under tbe guidance
01 Dr. Max l'ottonkoler we were conducted to the
ancient Institution, and, alier tbe usual formalities,
Invited to particpato in the hospitalities ol their
social board. Surrounding a long table were seated
the lathers, and a lew strangers and some 01 the
prominent citizens 01 Munich, enjoying their plea
sant conversation. Bolore each was placed a large
glass ol beer, aud it gives us ploasuio to acknowl
edge the kind welcome we received and our enjoy
ment of tho excellent and tar-famed beer brewed
by the Monks. We were permitted to inspect tne
complete and well-arranged little brewing apparatus.
Ma t liquor, or beer, as it is universally caned, is
regarded by the people of Havana as esseutial to
their health and enjoyment. They use it freely and
with impunity. The superiority and low cost ot this
beverago sxcindo the use of that which is unduly
stimulating and too otien adulterated, and which
not one in one thotsand persons is habituated to the
use of. The Government recognizes beerasanutiona
beverage, proticts the people in its got d quality, cm
ploys 1, IL eel s to inspect on the 80th of Aoril of each
year the beer storeo in the vaults of the brewers, and
bv light taxation encourages its consumption, doent
ing it necessary for the promotion 01 good morals
and the contentment of the people. It is a fact
worthy of great attention that mtemperanoe is ot
jure occurrence, and that (as stated by a leading offi
cial, connected with tlie Military and Government
Hospitals) only In a reriod of five or six years does
a caso ol delirium tn mms occur.

Vienna, and known as the D.-ehor Brewery. Mr. A.
Dreher, now deceased, tho n under ot this extensive
establishment, bolore commoucing tbe erection 01
bis brewery, vi-ited the prominent breweries ot other
countiies and investigated their modes of brewing
und tbo construction una arrangements of the, r uten
sils. By at plying tho knowledge thus obtained, und
conducting bis business on the most scientido princi
ples, he commenced a business oareor wh'ch proved,
aud continued to be, tor a period of thirty years,
until Ins oeaih, ono of alinoH unparalleled success
iu this branch of manuiacture. He also erected two
other breweries In other provinces of the empiro
which proved equally successful. '

of ground, upon which large and convenient build
ings tuo erected for brewing, malting, eto. ltie
mulling and kiln drying ot tbe barlay is similar to
that 111 vogue iu Munich , aim the same description

cisterns, iron pipes, six inches in diameter, extend,
ninth are perforated with small holes, and into
which water is couveyed, after the first washings of
the grain have taken piuce, thus equally distributing
tno wuter over tho whole. Theie aro five mash

iron, lined with copper, .and domed head'. The
coolers aro very extensive and mado of copper. No
urtllicial niodo 01 refrigeration is adopted.
Underneath the building are extensive vaults, to
tlie depth ol nearly tony loot, for tlie stonug ot the
beer. One-third of tbe space is appropriated lor the
storavo of ice. which keeps tlie temperature at about
80 (dog. Fahrcuht it 1 it seldom rises above 40 deg,

250,000 barrels annually, the brewing being discon
tinued during the summer months. In winter and
whilst in lull operation, 2000 barrels are brewed

and its vicinity, though an export demand is spring

now shipping 150 barrels weekly for tho supply ot
the English and German residents there. t,
We desire to call your attention to some Of tbe
causes ot thesuccoBS ot th Dreher breweries, and
10 recommend to you tbe adoption ot their system of
thorough organization of each branoh of their busi
ness. I hero is a chief brewer and his assistants, a
head crater in each department; and here, at in
England, chemists are employed to examine the
heats, and direct the malting ot the grain, to submit
to their tests tbe soundness oi the worts in their vari
ous couintious in tbe coppers coolers, aud ler
menliug rounds, and when completed, and bolore
leing stored in their storing cellars thus applying
the most soientiflo principle to the manufacture of
their beers, aud guarding against every possible risk
of disease or premature decay, lhe brewings are
conducted tn such a manner that assuranoo is giv-'n
that the iarve qliautitv OI hour stored to.-consumption
will prove pulatuble to tlie pubno and maintain
its reputation lor superiority. But one percent, of
the quantity lnanutaeiuied is returned to the brew
cry by the customers as unsal tble. l'ho ret nse
grains rtmaluiug unsold each day are Uunt'y pressed
in rlts sunk in the grout d, are sprinkled with salt,
ana thus preserved tor sale after tbe season lor
brewing lias closed.
The beer most birhly esteemed In Vienna Is pale,
brilliant, ot a light strength, and lightly hopped,
lhe tuperior Bohemian hop is preferred. But one
pound per barrel Is used in beer made lor home con
sumption, and two pounds lor that designed lor
In consequence of tbo blffh tsxation of beer in (he
A ustrian empire, and tn order to Insure a large con
sumption ot it, the brewers have been compelled, as
in Gieat Britain, to control the prices at which it is
sold by tbe glass or measure to the consumers. This
tbey have accomplished by the establishment ot beer
f aniens, and by owning or leasing many of the pub
lo houses in Vienna. Mr. Dreber has erected seve
ral lsrre and magmfioent buildings, and It was stated
that not k'8 than three-quarters of a million of dol
lars vers thus invested by him, furnishing to the
pnbho their Justly favorite beverage at such prices
as placed it within tbe ability of ail classes to
Omfifieticlrs of the Brewing JBvtinem.H may
not be out of place to call your attention to the
peculiar characteristics of the brewing business, and
tbe circumstances whioh determine the marketable
value 01 beer. To those practically acquainted with
the manuiacture of malt liquors, whether ale, porter,
or lager beer, we will be sustained in the opinion,
that, m scarcely any other branch of manuiactunng
are there so many obstaoics to tbe production
ot a marketable article as in that ol malt liquors.
Limited as tbe brewer is to the use
ot barley lor the manutacture of his mall, and to
bops, tor which (as a pleasant and aromatic bitter
and preserver ot bis peilshable commodity) there Is
no substitute, tbough wet harvests may have ren
dered tho lormer unsound and nnprouitious sea
eons impaired the strength and value of tho latter,
be is compelled to use them. To unsoundness In the
grain, and the blighi of the bop (wnich has so
alarmingly manifested itself, for the last tew years,
in the agricultural districts of this country and the
consequent difficulty ot obtaining a sufficient quan
tity 01 tbe best qualities to insure the keeping ot the
beer for any length 01 time) aro mainly attributable
the losso 01 the brewer which, in this country,
have been in some years so disastrous, causing
bankruptcy in muny instances. An emu, ent and
long txpci fenced and established brewing firm of
England, it was stated, bad not less than 20,000 bnr
rels ot leer returned to tbem by their customers In
ono year as unsalable. '1 be sudden atmospheric
changes of ttimes impair the quality ot tbe beer. Un
avoidab e exposure, in transporting it Irom the
brewery to a ol taut point of consumption, to severe
cold destroying its briskness and rendering it vapid
and unpalatable, or to the summer's sun, which may
cause acidity and the bursting of tbe cask, contri
bute to tbe disappointments and heavy lossjs to
which the business is liable.
A speculative demand lor beor Is never known.
It is not bought and sold in large quantities, and
never appears in the published lis'sof prices cur
rent. Nor can it bo advanced simultaneously with
tho increased coal ot the raw materials. An increase
in tbe price of the glass or measure, to the consumer
at once diminishes the sale, and it is plainly apparent
that the large consumption in those countries we
have visited is mainly attributable to the cheap
ness at which it is sold, it was remarked by
one of tho most celebrated and successiul brewers of
Great Britain, that some years the profits ot the
business did not exceed five per cent, on the capital
employed, and by ono, equally intelligent and ro
spectab e, in Bavaria, that for the last twenty-five
yeais, his caj ital had not yielded a profit larger
than 7 per cent, annually.
Ccniparutive Hale of Taxation in Europe and in
the United Blatei on Malt Liquor. In the rate of
taxation on malt liquors, imposed by the European
covin. ments, the policy of all is iho sumo,
viz: to encourage the increase ot consumption.
Tho rate of duty Is in nearly a 1 of the German
fctates very low. Even in Franco, wbere the in
crease of consumption 01 mait liquors is compara
tively 01 recent dato, and the ncoes-ities ot the Gov
ernment demand a large revenue, the tax is but two
thirds of that ot tbe tinted Mates. In England,
where the consumption bas lalleu or risen with the
increase or oecreaso of duty with the sensitiveness
ot a thermometer, they have found that ninety-lour
cents per barrel secures the greatest consumption
and tbe greatest revenue.
In Austria, one of the oldest and most powerful
monarchies ot Europe, with a larger amount; of debt
than any other of the German Mates, her financial
condition verging on bankruptcy, her revenue tho
past year falling short of her expenses by millions ot
dollars, with a prospect of a deficit this year still
gnaier, a tax ot $112 on a barrel of beer is deemed
sufficient, and certainly as much as that drink of
tbe people will bear, let Austria contains a donse
population 1 her territory, for the most part, is tho
roughly cultivated, her wealth Is all devoloped.
Fiery conceivable object ot trade, merchandise, or
pleasure is.taxed to its utmost. If any new source
ot taxation could arise theie, in the shape oi biddon
or undcvelopeo wealth, or otherwise, the discovery
wouid be bailed with tbe most cuthusiastto delight.
It would tend to replenish her depleted treasury,
and to bolster, lor a time, at least, her tottering
The United States of America, a comparatively

lies slumt ering in the bowels of the earth, and will

importance to tho agriculturists of this country,
'lhe estimated annual production ol malt liquors iu
the United MuteB is 6,000,OJO of Darrels, in the, manu
acliiie ot which 12 000,000 bushels ot barley and
15,000,0(0 pounds ol hop aro required. To grow

Jk ntjicial Ejects of thu L'ae of Malt Liqtwrs on
Put'tic Morale. 1 truiit us. in conoiuslou, to reier
to ine ellects of the general use of matt liquors ou
the t'ubits and morals of the pooplo, a subject 01 no
loss interest to tho statesman than to the philan
thropic!. Tho use of stimulants appears to be general
amongst tho nations ol tho turtb, civilized aud bar
barous. Tne large consumption of distilled spirits,
wines, beer, tea, co'ee, aud to'iacco, shows this
desire to be so universal thai, it is scarcely inappro
priate to call it a natural appetite.
But there is a wide difference between the use of
tin so stimulants, as beverages, upon national
habits. W hiie tho free indulgence in the first is the
lruitlul cause ol oomestio misery, pauperism, dis
ease, aud cnuio, in otbors tne ctl. cts are so harm
less that i on, women, and children daily partake
ol ihem with impunity. The leanul consequences
of the excossive use of ardont spirits, tho most Hot id
declamation cannot too highly color. Its hideous
statistics have been collected Irom prisons, alms
bouses, and hospitals; from tho dwellings of tbo rich,
whore domestic misery was mocked by tho luxury
and splendor which surrounded it; lrm the dwell
ings of the poor, where, alas I it imposes stilt heavier
burdens upon the gaunt shoulders ot poverty.
Statesmen, philosophers, warriors, poots, have each
contributed their quota to the denial category.
Humanity bas went over it, but her ellorts
to arrest it have been but parcal and
transient. Legislation prohibiting the sale of
spirits and lei men ted liquors, aud vo.uuiary
pledges of total abstinence from their use,
have been tried iu vain. Your Commissioners think
iney can say with r.ouudence, yet with deep regret,
that the f lions of tjmpeianoe societies thus far have
tai ed to diminish, to any appreciable extent, tho
use ot spirits as a beverage. Iu aiming at too much
tbey have accomplished too litilu; aud this we con
ceive has arisen chiefly from the uuwise oourse ot
including ltrmenied diluns in tue plodgcs required
Nor bas tbe prohibitory legislation In smie of the
New England Btatea been more uoc.velui, It lias
uooeotied in pinning a screen at the door el the bar
room, but rot in arresting the trtf! c at ine bnr. To
make cold water the exclusive national bevemgo bas
been lonnd, and ever will be found, i.s wo believe,
impracticable j and, if practicable, would lot be nor
n inept lhe same craving for seme stimulnnt
whioh made man abandon theso nnmitive habit
when bis beverage was "water fiom tho spnnr,"
would Induce him to do It again as long as human
natnre remains unchanged. .
The remedy lor national Intemperance, wo are
rcrsnaded. is not In the abolition or disuse ol every
beverage but cold water, but in the substitution lor
a hurttul beverage one bioh is harmless.
We lee I that the manuiaolnrlu and vending ot
malt liqnor Is not Injurious to our fellow citizens,
but thai the more the manufacture and sn e of it Is
extended lhe more will tempemi.ee be romoted
and tbe revenue of the Government Increased. Malt
liquor has been pronounced bv bigh medical autho
rity "not euly an innocent, but a salubrious bever
age for those whose diet is not Vt-ry nutritive."
"Happy is that counuy," says an eminent Ei gllsh
physician, "whose latorlng classes prefer such a
tevei age to those mischievons potations ot ardent
spirits," Our own observation, ano Inlnrmatiou de
rived from others, both attest the iruth ot this r
mark. We have seen, as we have stated above,
thou acre of persons men, women, aud children
in the Gorman Mates, assembled, drinking their
national beverage and or.joying their national games
and sports with tho greatest hilarity, and have luiled
to see a drunken one among them. 1 be natives of
these State who emigrate to tins country bnng
with them their preiereiice lor the t evcrage and the
sports and amusements of their tatberiand. No
policemen are lequiied to protect tbcpubllo peace
irom any disturbance bv a "iSa-ngerlost" or "iur
norverem." W hen Hie services 01 the police aie re
quired at tbe.-e tcMivala, it is to guard their peacelul
reunion aud innocent cn;o mnt.s from the inso ent
aud riotous muusion ol ruffians inspired by quite
Ibe consequences of an habitual Indulgence
whicn leads so trequently to tho excessive use of
spirits is that, when the stimulus 's withdrawu, the
nervous system is depressed below its normal tone.
The result is that craving which we call the thirst
lor liquor. An art.licial stimulus, then, is neo sary
to restore their normal condition, and the quantit y
required lor ibis purpose coustaim increase-. But
no such t-ili cts follow from the use of malt liquors,
which have nutain ent in the malt a tonic iu the
hop, and contain tut a small pci o utage ol alcohol.
Tbey aro stimulants, it is true; but, like tea aud
coflee, "they cheer, but not inebriate." llenceit is
comparative y easy lor a man to abandon tho habit
ot using malt liquor to excess, pot haps easier
than to abandon the excessive use ot tea and
collee; while every man's observation will tell
him how rare aro the instances in w hich the deep
drinkers of ardent spirits have been able to liberate
themso.ves irom the thradom ot a demon to whom
they voluntarily became slaves,
Our country Iibb just passed through a gigantio
civil war. Four millions ot laborers hnvo passed
from a state ot Dondage and tutoluce to that of iroe
dom and sell-dependence; they have emerged from
a condition uulremilly to the cultivation of strength
of will, and habits of soli-control. 1 heir habits, and
consequently tbe wealth which their industry will
add to the country, will bo influenced in some de
gree by the beverago of which they will habitually
W bat shall this be? Shall it be distilled spirits,
Whose habitual use induces that intemperance which
sta'csmen aud philanthropists alike dip lore f Or
shall it be a milo and harmless beverage, which the
taste and policy of tbe most civilized communities
approve, and whoso beneficial eflccts on national
habits, their national character tor temperance de
monstrates f lhe luture character ol tho whole
laboring population of the southern section ot our
country will be influenced by tho response ot the
Government to those questions. It is truo, the Gov
ernmer.t cannot, by direct leg elation, prescribo
what shall be tho beverage of tho people or ot any
part ot them; but they can discriminate In their
excise laws, as they have done in their tariff laws,
between subjects of taxation, for reasons ot public
policy. As tbey have given incidental protection to
