Tbe Hou. TTioiiA>? E. Powkrp. Speaker of the Vermon I
lx?gi?la rura, was here introduced, lie would not, he
aaid, attempt te portray the evils of interaponnce. The
question waa, bow to get lid of tho evils of this system,
not to debate about it. (Applau.-e ) It i ? the strong
arm of the law thai* in to -olvc this nuettioa. The great
opponents of the movement an- avarice an! law?remove
these, anil the reform is eliecti ] Hut temperance
people th' ntaelves Ua ? done inueh to it .pede the pro
gress of tilth movement. Some of them bate eu leavored
to pasa partial laws, wherru . we must go to the root if
the evil, and stop it altogether But have wre.tlie power
to do so'; The speaker here quoted authorities to
show tvc had. lie thought the first thing to tic done was
to pass us stern a law as possible, mo matter how te; rific
the results. In those States that have passed this lav,
"old soakers" arc ashamed to indulge in ?' the ardent. '
Be thought the law ought to be as effectual us possible,
for vou cannot, sa.d he, get nie.i to appear as witnesses i
against those who drink liquor. Tue speaker here '
beri.ted the veto message of Gov. Seymour, and j
didn't think afte r nil. it amounted to much He argued
that the law was effectual in thoso States where it
was passed, for he had known men to walk lf> miles
in order to procure liquor, out of Ihelimi; i of the ?tate.
The hex. IIfjsy Vi'.iiii) Bekc iikk was the next spgaker.
He thought that nobody could doubt that intemperance
wa' a great evil; it was like the milkfe-.er in the West?
it was known to exist, yet none thought it was in the r
neighborhood. It v. ill not do to shake the axe at the tree
of evil?we must strike at tiie root. To speak to the
moral conscience of a man whose very occupation pre
supposes a want of it. 's ridiculous. Why, these men
have no' rot the place where the coiiscieuee ought to
.grow, (duiughier.) We propose to apply the principles
that have been in existence as loDg as .Saxon law. l'be
Maine law did not originate among tho rich?it is : dem
o -atic law. (Applause ) There are two things required
ai law?one or them is justice Kight la the first ele
ment. Then comes discussion. He anticipated opposi
tion, but we innst beat the way through the hearts of
the people to Alba? y. (Ap; laudc.) He leit he ought to
take th. weak side, and was glad of tho Governor's veto.
The discussion that will ensue will weaken the stronghold
of the devil?lie didn't mini the Governor, (lueughtor )
He next .-poke of the dubious course of some of the city
paperi on the liquor law, und said they were like the
Hatchman's cow?sometimes white and sometimes Mack,
(lamd laughter.) We cannot enforce, be -ulded, tbc
.present biws; wc aro a progressive jieopie; v,e must not
take the old. cumbrous machinery, uut meat improve on
it. We don't expect that wo can pass tue lav. to day
and enforce it to morrow. In tho country it will be en
forced immediately, and in the city ut a m e di. taut
period. The dry on which tho Maine law passes will
hereafter be celebrated, like the 4th of Jniv amid great
rejoicing.
Tbo congregation then united in singing the following
.xnthwui:?
God help our suffering raee
Strong urink's dark curse to chase
From off this earth !

Awhile the young world stood,

Where hope, on funeral | He.

Where men, for sordid gain,

And spread their country's bane
With artful snare !
Cod help our sufferingrac,

Away from earth
May our Maine law now prove
A so\ creign law of love,
All through the nations mote.
And save the world I

The New York City Anti-Slavery Society. An off-shoot
of tbe Corrisnni.m abolition party, held what called
ltd anniversary meeting at the Tabernacle, last evening.

cured a largo audience, including many women, who
wont at. they go to the theatre, as the tickets wore cole

Munyof the big guns of the , arty. iii' U.ling M - ? r?
Wr'ght, Garrison. Theodore T'nrker Wendell Phillips,
and others, were seated upon the platform. Also, A J
Uarls, the spirit rapper. Uc Hie meeting was called to
order by Mr. Laches WrrxoaK, the President of the
Society.
T>.e t hairmau introduced Rev Mr. MAY, 01 Mat?*

a long abolition prayer; but a number of the strong
mind;' J abolitionists, male and female, of the Wright and
b oater stamp, seemed to take but Yery little interest n
?bo devotional proceeding*.
The annual report was alluded to by the I'rcr.dert it
is printed, and makes a pamphlet of twenty four pages,
but gives none of the usual statistics It repeats the
usual abolition arguments, ami glorifies the officers for
the success of the lectures delivered last winter
Hot. Tueodokk Pvkki.k, of Boston, woul l ask the ut
tention of the audience foi a few moments to the stnte
ol aim erv in America. Geographically viewed our coun
try is beautiful exceedingly Here is the foundation of a
meat nation?not a nation, but a commonweal'h, with
ulno diffeuticts enough in blood to make a new race ol
ne n and mu-h belter tlion the present Anglo r-avoo.
Tl " h intern end Western sectioi o' the country are the
fiwst mo tions of it. What a Spectacle it is ! A Lation

farmers and miners?not soldiers The army gives one
wider to everv twenty four thousand inhabitants. .
The nation is ' the wealthiest, next to England^ |
\bove nil tbi.- rises tbe gri lt American olca?that
oven man is entitled to certain inalienable rights,
on which tho government, must rest. Above that |
is the oilier idea?one God, one Christianity ! whose
worship is love. What a contrast this seeing to Europe.
And this iv the aspect presented to the victims of Euro- j
u n despotism by this country. But when you come
neuior, tie land is black with siaveiy. More than one
cifcJith ol the citizens nre called cattle, and the right* f>*

the ifichinond Enquirer, to prove that the leading Idea
of tin* south was in accordance rvith the above state

and in the Mate in whose capital twelve hundred murders
have been committed in one year, slavery tins been

TIIE OPPOSITION To THK NKBRASK A BILL CONDUCT
OF WCNATOTt SUMNER,?AHSCKD CHAKU1H AUAINST

WASnntoTOR, May 12, 1864.
No nrospfctof an adjournment?the opponents of the .
Nek a ska hill .leclnring their intention to keep up their
factious oppihitinr., nnd the majority, of course n main
i.ng hiTi. It is dilbcult to umlerslaud the seuse of the
opposition tact 't-s Alt'oiugb the Pacific Railroad bill Is
the special order forTuerdav .t cm,not com - tip unless
thi Houae agree to go into committee At present the
pending motion is to stop debate upon the Nebraska bill,
and the previous .jucstion has been sustained tUoreon.
So motion to go into <t jnmittee is in order tiM thai mo
tiou is disposed of so that Mr. Richardson' motion must
be decided, if it takes till doomsday. Mr. Rumner, the
aboution Senator, hai been busily engaged in organising
opposition to tho will of the majority . ne urgoa mem
bers to follow the advice of the TriOnnr, and, if necessary, j
lurn tne Capitol. Under his auspices, the Oppoasnts of J
the bUl have organised themselves into a letter-writing '?
corps, and hundreds of letters have been sent oil to the
country, recommending that meetings tie railed to rus
tain he conduct of the minority, aud to (ler . ince speak
er Bey I on the ha rye of unfairness, iic. Now It is no
torious here that, bo tar from Mr Itoyd acting iUiben-Jh
to tho opponents of the bill, he has gone even too far the
other way No man has been feumi to charge the
i-pcaker with unfairness on tha door hut the charge Is
tob meakingly made ngninrt him In the ,vnv ,T(. ,mv?
indicated.
It is probable the House will not adjourn until s-mc
time tomorrow morning, when Mr. Richardson will
an adjournment. It la known that the bpoaker will of
course decide on Tuesday, should mutters remain in their
present po. Lion, that even a motion to go into Commit
tee of the Whole is . ut of order. The motion now p,.nd.
iUg to fix an hour to stop debate on thu Nebraska bill in
committee takes precedence of a motion to go into com
miltee Honce, when Tuesday arrives, the fsctio -s op
position wiil U no nearer forcing the majority to akan
don the Nebraska bill than they now arc. But by silow.
ing the minority to continue their pranU ahttle lunger
It will all the more clearly demonstrate the entirely fac
tious nature of tho opposition.
The opposition require, In order to call the yeas md
navs, but thirty five to be present: and they have there
fore arranged soas to let half their number stay away
go borne and rest, and, after a r-w hours, relieve the
Ikirtl five on duty In this wiiy they have uu advantage
over the friends of Ih, bill, who have si] to be pr,..r?t
for fear that if they are absent the opposition may lake
advantage of tho circumstance, and vote an adjourn, .ent,
or vote down the i-enolutiou shipping debate The ma
jority, thrrefore, fight,it a disadvange; but the justice of
the r position supplies them with tee n-cessary en -rgy
to i ems in at their |s,sfs, while their oppoueals are bv
platoons enabled to go home
The majority are uotcrmiuec to .nforce thnr consti
