Extracts from a Letter on Temper ance. We give the following extracts from a letter received,dated Baltimore, August 20th : Rejoice with us that so many of the voting men of our Valley have put their shoulders to the wheel of Temperance that is rolling on so beautifully in this city. They are workiug well and with effect. Our estimable young friend, A. W. Hawks, has esp m od its cause publicly. I offer my Congratulations that your town has given to the cause one who is a power for good in that direction, lie has made several beautiful and telling speeches, and, as you know, none are better prepared to appreciate his remarks than tliose familiar with his keen wit aud graceful mode a f expression. 1 >'.r friend E 1! Legs, formerly of Berkeley County, is an efficient co-worker with us, and i s much good. Surely has Temperance a tiien ! in him. We will organize a “ Gospel Temperance Meeting” in a lew days, and make Hawks President, aud Legg Secretary. TEMfKRASOE. It is wi'h the greatest pleasure that we publish the ab ve letter,—its con tents cai t; t l ut afford the most heartfelt j")' t > the many friends of these two young men ineutii i.* d therein.
