Henry, generally known as ( !us, the
Faglc Orator. The debate was se

Andy closed his speech with this an

" We met this F.agle. ami I can1

has none of my flesh on his talons

In opening a letter at the Tost
Office the other day, we found a one
dollar bill, on the bncfc of which, in
a neat business hand, was written
the following inscription :
"This is the hint dollar ot a for
tune of ?(M,o(H) all of which has
gone for rum! What a miserable
ftsil I have been !
J A vies T. Co pp."
Fool, indeed, thought we. And
such is the power of rum. And
such are the sad effects of all rtrong
drink upon those who use it. It
steals away the brain, and makes a
man a fool, until bewildered and se
duced by its fascinations, he throws
himself a way, a willing victim, and
becomes a sot and a hnito, and des
troys his health and jieace, and
squanders his fortune, rains his bu
siness and good name, brings his
family to poverty and misery, and
dies, at last a death of honors, and
is shut out from the Kingdom of
C.od forever. Verily, u wine is a
mocker, and strong drink is raging;
ami whosoever is deceived thereby
is not wise."
