No garrets are there where the weary wait. Where the room is cold and the hours are late; No pale-faced wife, with looks of fear, Listens for steps she dreads to hear, The hearts are free from pain and care No drink is sold there. All the long day, in that beautiful land, Tbe clear waters ripple o'er teds of sand ; And, down on the edge of the water's brink. Those white-robed beings wander, nor shrink Nor fear the power of the tempter's snare, For no wine is there.

President Grant's Inaugural Address. Fellow C'ttznu Under Providence I have been called a second time to act as Executive over tbig great nation. It bas been my endeavor to maintaiu all tbe laws, and, bo far aa lay in my power, to act for the best interests of tbe whole people. My beet efforts will be given in tbe future. I trust my four years' expe rience in the office has not been without profit. ben my farat term ot tue omce of Chief Executive began, the country had not recovered from tbe effects of a great internal revolution, and three of the four States of the Union bad not been restor- d to their federal relations. It seemed to me wise that no new question should be raised so lung as that condition of af fairs existed ; therefore tho past four years, eo fur as I could control events, hare been consumed in the efforts to res tore harmony, public credit, commerce and all the arts of peace and progress It is my firm conviction that the civi lized world is tending towards 'Republi canism, or government by the peojile, and that our own gn at Republic is destined to be the guiding star to all others. Un der our UepuMic we support an army less than that of any European power of any stunning and a navy less than that of either of at lenst five of them. There could be no extension of terri tory on this continent which would call for an increase of this force, but rather might snch extension enable us to dimin ish it. The theory of government changes with tbe general progress. Now that the telegraph is made available for communicating throughout, together with the rapid transit by steam to all parts of the continent, are made continous fur all purposes of government, and communica tion between the extreme limits of tbe country made easier than it was through out the old thirteen States at the begin in of our national existence. Tbe effects of the late civil strife have been to free tbe slave aud taniko him a citizen ; yet he is not possessed of the civil rights which citizenship should car ry with it. This is wrong and should be corrected. To this correction I am com mitted so far as executive influence can avail Social equality is not a subject to be legislated on, nor shall I ask that any thing be done to advance tbe social status of tbe colored man, except to givs bim a fail chance to develope what is in bim Give him access to schools, and when he travels, let bim feel assured that bis con duct will regulate the treatment and fare be will receive. The States lately at war with the gener al government are now happily, rehabi'.i tated, and the executive control is not exercised in any other State nnder tbe circumstances. In the "first year of the past ad minis tratioh a proposition came np for the ad mission of San Domingo as a territory of tbe Union. It was not a question of my seeking, bnt was a proposition from the the people of San Domingo, and which I entertained. I believe as I did then, that it was for the best interests of this country, for tbe people of San Domingo and all concern ed, and that the proposition should be recieved favorably. It was however, re- jceted constitutionally, and therefore the sal jected was never brought np again by me. In futured, while I bold the piosent office, the subject of the acquistion of territory must have tbe support of the people before I recommend any proposi tion looking to each acquisition. How ever, I do not share tbe apprehension held by many as to tbe danger of the government becoming weakened and des troyed by reason of tbe acquisition of territory. Commerce, education, rapid transit of thought and matter by tele graph and steam have changed all this ; rather, I believe, onr great Maker is pre paring the world, in his own good time, to become one nation, speaking one lan guage, and that armies and navies will be bo longer required. TBS LAWS. J MAKCII 12, 1873. i My efforts in the future will be direct ed to tbe restoration of good feeling be tween tbe different sections of our com mon country; the restoration of cur rency to a fixed value compared with tbe world's standard ; gold, if possible, to par with it ; the construction of cheap routes of transit throughout the land, that the products of all sections may find a market and leave a living renomer ation to the producer; to tho mainten ance of friendly relations with all our neighbors and distant nations ; to the ectablisliment of our commerce and our share in the carrying trade npon tbe ocean; to the encouragement of such manufacturing iudustries as can be econ omically pursued in this country, that the exports of home products and indus tries may pay fur our imports, is the only sure method of returning to and permanlly maintaining a specie basis ; to the elevation of labor, and by a hu mane course to bring the aborigines of the country uuder the benign influences of education aud civilaz-ttion. Thi either this or a war of extermination Wars of extermination engaged in by people pursuing commerce, and all indus trial pursuits are expensive, ever against the weakest people, and are demoralizing and wicked. Our superiority of strength and advantages of civilization should make us lenient towards the Indian. Tbe wrongs already iuflicted npon him should be taken into account, and tbe balance placed to his credit. A moral view of the question should be cousidered, and the question asked, cannot tho Indian be made a useful aud productive member of society by proper teaching and treatment ? If the effort is made hi good faith, we will stand better befure the civilized nations of the earth and our own consciences, fur having made it. All these things are not to be accom plished by one iudividual, but they will receiev my support and such recommen dations to Congress as will, in my judg ment, best serve to carry them iuto effect. I beg your support and encouragement It has been and is my earnest desire to secure tint. Reformatory rules regulating the methods of appoint menu and promotion were nstablished, and my efforts for such reformation shall be continued to the Lest of my judgement. The spirit of tbe rules adopted will be maintained. I acknowledge before this assemblage, representing, as it does, e very section of of our country, the obligation I am nn der to my fellow iceu for the great honor they have conferred on me by re turning me to tbe highest office withiu t!r:b- gifc, and the fuithcr obligation resting on me to render the best services withiu my power- This I promise, looking forward with tho greatest anxiety to tho day when I shall bo released from the responsibilities that at times are almost overwhelming, and from which I have scarcely have bad a rest since the eventful firing on Fort Smmpter, in April ISC I, to the present day. " My services were then tendered and accepted uuder the first call fur troops growing out of that event. I did not ask for place or position, and was en tirely without influence, or the acquaint ance of persons of influence, but was resolved to perform my part in the strug la threatening tho very existence of the nation. I performed conscientiously my duty, without asking promotion or command, and without revengeful feeling towards any section or individual. Notwithstanding this, thronght the war, and from my first candidacy for my present office in 1S68, to the closing of the last Presidential campaign, I have been the au bject of abuse and Blander scarcely ever equalled in political his tory, which to-day I feel I can afford to disregard in view of your virdict, which I grate fully accept as my vindication. On the conclusion of the President's address the members of the Senate, pre ceded by tbe Sergeant-at-Arms, Vice President, and Secretary returned to to the Senate Chamber, and tbe Pres dent, accompanied by the committee of arrangements, was escorted to tbe Pres ident's house. What is the most desirable age of life ? Ve put this question to a few friends lately, and received the following replies, but do not consider any of them satisfactory : A banker thought coin-age the best age ; a tailor, cabb-age ; a soldier, pill age ; a toper, viut age ; a vicar, vicar age ; a hungry man, saus-age ; an ambi tions lady, a carri-age ; a brave roan, courage; a dram driuker, drainage; a joker, bad in age ; musician, bandage ; a slave-owner, bond-age ; a laborer, cott age ; a Scotchman, poor-age ; and two silly fools, marri-ags. The Christian who has put aside Christ because he is in worldly company, is like a man who has pot off his shoes because he is walking among thorns. Why are elections like tents ? Because the canvas ends at the poles. EDITOR AM) PROPRIETOR. WHOLE NUMBER 1357. Tobacco Its Effects on the Humaj? Constitution, Physical, Intellectual and- Moral. BY JATtSCl)LLTEa LA YARD, M. l. fCwrissiD ITS EFFECTS OX TfB ORGANS Of SPECI AL SBXSE. That tobacco injures the sense of smell we presume no one, even of its votaries, will have the hardihood to deny. How can it be otherwise to the snuff-taker. who is constantly filling his nose with an acrid and irritating powder ? Or the smoker, who iubails through his noeUals a smoke-laden atmosphere Or to the chewer, who never escapes from the odor of tbe filthy wead ? We all know what a disagreeable odor we perceive upon en tering a drug store. Yet, after we have been in for an hour or two we do not notice it. The shop-keeper, who stays there all the time, does njt perceive it His sense of smell has become blunted Druggists sometimes lose the sense of smell altogether. We have known iu stances of the kiud. The habitual user of tobacco carries about him all the time tbe odor of a drug of the worst kind, lives in it, breathes it ; yet he dues not perceive it. Should it, then, be a matter of astonishment that his sense of smell should; after a time, become so obtuse as to render him well nigh incapable of smelling anything 1 That the use of to bacco impairs tbe sight and hearing, will not, perhaps, be so readily believed Nevertheless, there are npon record well authenticated cases, not only of impaired hearing, but of total deafness, produced by the use of snuff. Do you ask bow ? Tbe cavities of the mouth, nose ais ears all communicate with each other, as do these also with other cavities in the crau ium called tinuset, by means of internal passages, lined continuously with mucous membrance. Any substance, therefore, which is introduced into tbe nose can readily find its way into any of these other cavities tLe passages cf the inter nal ear, for instance with which it is continuous. The lato Rev. Dr. Cooper, of Boston, by the coustant uso of snuff, brought ou a disorder of the bead which was thought to have ended his days. A post mortem examination discio-cJ a quantity of bard and impacted Scotch snuff lodged between the nose aud the brain. Now, in addition to the patho logical efL-ct which all n ircotics have in blunting and deadening the special sen ses, snuff, by getting into the passages of the iuternal ear, may ca use deafness, by its mere mechanical effect in blocking them up We dare to assert, without fear of successful contradiction, that every mau and women who uses snuff carries about with bim or her, constantly more or less of the detestable stuff lodg ed in some of the cavities of the skull ; and that a post mortm examination would reveal tbe fact ! Do you wish to make a snuff-box of your fron'.al tinns t It U only of late years that the atten tion of medical men has been directed to tbe influence of tobacco upon vision. That loss of eight is one of the symp toms of acute nicotinism, has long been known, to the faculty ; but it is only within a recent period that the agency of chronic nicotinism in causing blind ness at least that species of it called amaurosis has become a well establish ed fact. Amaurosis is a paralysis of the optic nerve, and was formerly one of the most intractable maladies that physicians were called upon to treat in most case's incurable. But since tbe causes which produce it have been better studied, grea ter success has been met with. Thus, Mackeuzie, whose work on the eye is a standard authority, Hutchinson, and other oculists of eminence were led to notico that a great majority of those who came to them to be treated for amaurosis used tobacco in some form; many of them to excess. Acting upon this hint, their amaurotic patients were advised to abandon tbe habit. In tbe case of those who followed this advice, the disease soon became amenable to remedies it had hitherto resisted. In some instances sight was restored after a time, without any treatment whatever ; just as many othr diseases get well of themselves, when the causes which produced them cease to operate. No fact in medical science is now better established than that the use of tobacco is one of the most efficient as well as one of the most frequent causes of amaurosis. In most medical text books of a late date this is cited as ona of the causes of this disease. And so promment a cause is it allowed to be that the disease itself is sometimes character ized by medical writers by the term to barco blindness. But abort of producing total blindness that the use of tobacco, at least tobacco gmokine. causes weak eyes and impair ment of the sight, tbe Germans furnish ns with the best of proof. In Germany nearly all tbe men smoke, and an aston ishingly large number of them wear glasses. Dr. Alcott characterizes them as a spectacled nation. Diseases of the eye aud defective vision are surprisingly common. Every town of any importance baa its eye infirmary, with surgeons who practice this specialty. Heidelberg, with a population of 16,000, has one. Wies baden, with a population of 10,000, baa one employing four surgeons, and treat ing 2. .100 patients annually. Yhiln the eye clinic of the University of Vienna- receives j.uuu, ana mat oi i roi. on , Graefe, in Berlin, 6,000 annually, 1 to be coxti.ncid. BATES OP ADVERTISING-.

WICKERSHAU, BAYATtD MELDS; F.hitobs.- An Erroneous Idex Many persons erroneously think, that the license system, is a source of reve nue to the government, that if it wis re moved tbe taxes would be considerably in-rra-etl; what a mist ikeo idea, lie v. -Johu Wiuters, D. D. in the Vindicator says : It entails a loss in a pecuniary senses at least five fold greater than the amount secured for the license in the ox nse so incurred to gujiprtt inebriate' paupers, and in punishing criminals. No Inrr guage can portray the evils which are inflicted npon the poor deluded victims of receivers of tho nudening poison. The mind becomes debased, the physical energies demoralized, the honor and pride" of wiauhood lost, and resistance to the evil destroyed. The wife becomes brok en hearted, having' lost all marital' enjoy ment and hope, the children 8tarv?ii va grants, and often lost to society. The holocaust to this sacrifice of "the liquid fire of distilled damnations," is CHiiij one hundred thousand graves annually. Then look at the waste and expense of making 72 500,000 gallons of this distill ed liquid fire, annually ; and of 270)000 hands employed hi tho manufacture of this poison ; and 130.000 liijuor shops', with 300,000 beings raef human engag ed in enticing men to drink the poison which they deal out. And what is the tremendous cost of all this ? One thousand millions of dol lars to the consumer, and the worse than waste of oue thousand five hundred mil lions more of labor lust in consequence of the intemperance created. But even this is not all. The support of paupers created by the evil costs tlie country 835,000,000, and the criminal cxpousT in judges, juries, jails, peuitentiaries, and sickness ; of the inebriate, swell the amount to not less than SIOOO.OOO1 more, leaving out of the bill $67,000,000" capital invested to keep agoing 26.00$ distilleries existing in tlie nation. These vast, complicated, numerous evils were not what Legislatures were es tablished by freemen' to create, or to sus tain by license and law. Justice, liberty righteou: ness, the strength and well be ing of the State, tbe peace, prosperity harmony and happiness of families, all forbid such injurious, if not Satanic leg islation as this. If legislation can enact laws raiueS tainted and injurious: food, or the sale of poisonous drugs, and various other evils. and the propagating iufections diseases ; must they not be chargewbtc with crimi nal indifference to the general welfare to license the sale cf that which is produc tive of the greatust evil which ever afflic ted mankind ? No one would claim fur legislation the right to license houses of ill fame, or men - to steal horses ; yet these are not eo injurious as what is now licensed. Is it not timo for law-makers to con- . aider those facts, and what their duties are respecting then: ? Does not the li cense system trample upon tlie rights) liberties, interests and happiness of the people T Do not legislators in making or continuing, or Governors in approving such laws need to look at their fearful responsibility 1 But the question is, whut can be dono in the matter ? The answer is all who see, feel and deplore these facts must nuite upon grand a:rl conquering points, and raise their standard and declare "No more license to any one to murder or de stroy, as far as we catf prevent the same; prohibition, total and universal. ' To ac complish thi we must combine, co-operate all moral and Christian force. Union is strength. l et in have one genf ral plan and fixed determination, and let the battle cry be tint plan. Now i.t llf. time to rane the battle cry . There is no important i lection before us for years to divi !o our fuices or block up our way. Let us watrh our enemies and mark them as tho enf mies of man, and encourage every realfritud, ropeliiu'' no genuine one of the cause Then the victory will be certain. It is too great to expect it iu an boar or a ycai. But, in the name of God, let us set no our banner. Is Alcohol a Toms. As regiL the strengthening properties of alcohol, the late Dr. V.'ii li.-i;n Biinton, .f London (1861), settles this point in the following terms r Careful observation, leaves Lttlo doubt that a moderate doso of beer or wine would, iu most cases, at once di minish the maximum weight which a a healthy person could lift ; mental acu tccess, accuracy of perception, a:id deli cacy of the senses are all so fir opposed by alcohol as that the maximum efforts, each are incompatible with the ingestion of any mode erate quantity of fermentf d liquid. A single glass will often sufuci to take the edjia off both miud and body and to reduce their capacity to something below their perfection of work." This has the more force, as not only wa Dr. Frinton probably the very highest au thority on the physiology and pathology of the digestive organ?, but he was alfft so far from being a teetotaller" that be followed the English custom r.f always having wiue on bis dinner table-
