= c THE RIGHT OP A COMMONWEALTH TO SUPPRESS THE LIQUOR TRAFFIC. BY J. H. HUDSON. The idea of prohibiting a person from going and coniiug at pleasure, or buying and setting what he pleases, is something at which the Anglo-Saxon freeman spontaneously revolts ; and which he is ready and willing to resist. Such an impulse is the legitimate offspring of our free institutions?and a laudable principle when curbed by the dictates of reason and judgment. But absolute individual liberty is totally incompatible with any thing like a wholesome civil government. Experience has nroved hnvnnd fiiip?tinn that tn oomiw noar><> X ? J w""v* VilUV W UVVUtV |/v*?vw and happiness to man in his collective capaci- j ty, the State must interfere with the traffic in many articles productive of a vast deal of harm c to society. Laws against the coining of money t ?against unqualified persons engaging in the j practice of medicines?against gaming and counterfeiting?are examples in which the a State has assumed the right of depriving man , t of his individual liberty?of prohibiting him j v from doing certain things, that thereby the . 3 good ofsoceity may be secured.?Solus popn- \ s li supremo, lex. h The question then, whether a people have j t the right to suppress the traffic in intoxicating , ] liquors, turns upon its bearing upon the pub- j ] lie weal. Any trade, employment, or use of : ] property detrimental to the lite, order, or i ] health of the people is, in the eye of the law, ; a nuisance, and should be abolished. If this , traffic affects the -sources of prosperity and hap- , piness ; if it disturbs the peace, order, and strength of a community, it becomes the peculiar prerogative of a commonwealth to check , or suppress it. It would be a work of supererogation to dwell here upon the baneful effects of spirituous liquors, in a moral, social, and political point of view. The rapid dissemination of vice and immorality, the vast! destruction of property, and the speedy has- J tening of death, caused by this institution (for j such it has become), arc too manifest to every one, to call for comment. The Traffic is a social evil?a civil crime? antagonistic lo the first principles of society and government. There is nothing so much to be dreaded?nothing so prejudicial to the well being of society?nothing which sooner breaks down morality and justic,?and nothing which aims so fatal a blow at the very foundation of social and political prosperity. If a business which disseminates the seeds of corruption, poisons the peace of a people, : and consumes their substance, be an evil; certainly humanity never groaned under one so appalling as this. It pervades every ramification of society ; the hovels of poverty and the abodes of affluence, being alike victims of its deadly sting. Yet those who advocate the prohibition of a traffic so comprehensive in its ruinous effects are continually asked :?"Why will you infringe upon our rights by forbidding that which is lawful V1 This argument we consider weak and easily refuted. The sanction and protection of law has been so long given to this trade that to many it seems to be not only legally right, but even morally right; and hence the : question above. But its being lawful by no j means makes it morally right?law being not j : absolute, but in many instances only relative, ' and often grossly perverted. < i And why is tlie Litjuor Traffic lawful ?? ; i Simply because it is protected by laic. Tear ! i away this impenetrable shield which has been cast around it by a deluded,*iufatuated people,; and it standsout in bold relief a social and po-. litical evil ; a crime in the sight of law, both human and Divine. Had it been left to meet its fate as the ; moral seutimentof the people has been gradu- j ally corrected and re-educated, in all probability it would have been ranked among those j nuisances subject to the severity of the law. ! Hut the protection of law has stood forth the strongest tower upon the mighty castle withiu which this dangerous structure of ruin and misery has been enclosed, and through which j the ponderous engines of moral suasion have 1 not and cannot make a breach. But admitting j that its being protected by law heretofore, is j no valid reason why it still should be; the opponents of a prohibitory law take a stronger , ground, and absolutely deny society the right to legislate upon the subject, upon the ground that such would be an intolerable invasion of personal liberty,?that it would be depriving the free born citizen of his natural right. Say they: " We are free American citizens; and the State has no right to interfere with our private pleasures, or hinder us from dealing and drinking as wc please." Personal liberty, we admit, is a sacred thing?a boon from God , of which we ought to be jealous. Much in this life depends upon it. The safety and happiness of the family fireside, as well as the ; glory of a nation, rest upon it as a corner-stone, j ; But our idea of it must not be uerverted. The ! j assumption that each individual has a right to < use his own property without restraint, which j 1 forms the major premise of this argument, is j 1 grossly fallacious aud uutcnable. We arc-not i beasts, but social beings endowed with the ele-! i meats of the highest improvement; and as i i such, must necessarily surrender a portion ot! ( our so called natural rights, by making a sac- j t rificc and' compromise for the general weal. ( Natural liberty is necessarily limited by man's ; t social condition; and such restriction the State , <2 is compelled to impose, both to insure protec-: tion against evil and to further the ends for 1 0 which it w;is organized. A citizen may be in 1 g the possession of a lawful weapon ; but to in-; h flict death or injury with it upon his fellows in t a wanton, cruel manner, would bo au act of e superlative guilt. Each one has a right to use g his own property for the promotion of his snc-1 a _:?i j. j 1 - - 1 ' uii? luiciust miu uappiness, so long as he does i not interfere with that of others. And iu a like i position must the dealer in intoxicating liquors \ be plaoed. To restrict him in the improper i use of his dangerous commodity would be in 1 accordance with the end and aims of govern- 1 ment. For what is the object of government? ] Certainly not to expose its subjects to the ; outrages of violence aud brutal force. Far from it. Its end is protection?protection of the weak against the strong?of the innocent against the lawless and guilty. But the chief power, the sine qua non of protection, is prohition. Every statue of the penal code is strictly speaking a prohibitory law, based upon the presumption that some private right and interest has been and may be again invaded. Law itself, is nothing more than a shield with which to protect the weak against the strong, and to secure justice to all. Every reasonable man then, will admit that whatever seriously disturbs the quiet and peace of the community, falls under the jurisdiction of law as something to be suppressed if possible. Now is not the Traffic in alcohol an agent calculated to product this effect ? It scarcely alls for even so much as assertion. It will iverbalance by the enormity of its evil, the ombined effects of theft, arson, and a host of ither offences punishable by law. It stands mpeached in the name of law and liberty?in he name of virtue and humanity?in the name ?f all that is holy and sacred, as the great ountain-liead whence springeth all those woes ind ills which human flesh is heir to. Like a lestroyiug angel, commissioned and deputed >y the law itself, it wings its way to every >alace and hovel in the land, bringing naught >ut ruin and desolation. Yet, while the right is granted to prohibit heft, gaming, counterfeiting, lewd houses and he like, we are not allowed to suppress a trafic more appalling in its effects than all these ; nfusing, as it does, its baneful poisons into ivery vein of the body politic. Where is the consistency?where is the usticc?where the policy of such legislation ? The right to legislate in the one case impli;s the right to legislate in the other; while he most formidable array of frightful facts ?c ? )rovc me neceaauj ui o\j uuiug. But as a last resort, the ramselling caviller, md the apponents of a law so beneficial in its endeucy and benevolent in its aim, take reflge behind the Constitution of the U. S. If i prohibitory law is unconstitutional, it becomes ;o either by violating sonic article of the Constitution of the Union, or the Constitution of [he State. We hear it asserted that the State bas no right to interpose the strong arm of the law to suppress this traffic because the ruiuscller pays a duty upon his goods; and therefore lias a right to sell, superior to the power of the j State to forbid his so doing. But the Chief! Justices of the Supreme Court have more than ouce decided that a prohibitory law is strictly in accordance with the Constitiou. A State has the power to regulate its own trade. Chief Justice Taney declared :?" Every State may I regulate its own internal traffic according to I its own judgment, and upon its own views of j the interest and well-being of its citizens.?If, any State deems the retail and internal traffic i in ardent spirits'injurious to its citizens, and ' calculated to produce idleness, vice, or de-' bauchery, I see nothing in the Constitution of the United States, to prevent it from regulating ! and restraining the traffic, or from prohibiting it altogether, if it thinks proper." And such i has been the declared opiniou of many of the | Justices and Associate Judges. This, too, is i the policy pursued by every State in the Union in ntluir nffir>loj ??iirt wliv iint in tlii< l)m?< not South Carolina say to her citizens :?You shall bo allowed to traffic in slaves within the 1 borders of the State,?while Now York denies the same privilege to her citizens? Aud will any reasonable man, who is at all versed in the character of our government, in candor say that a community or State has no right to abolish a nuisance ? Should any man or number of men, import and engage in the traffic of au article which all know and feel to be destructive of the best interest of the people who will say, that from the fact such an article is not specially denounced by the Constitution, therefore we have no power to suppress it ?? Never could our ancestors?characterized as they were by wisdom and forecast?have been capable of framing and adopting a Constitution so improvident and tyrannical. As far as the State is concerned, the ques- > tion has long since been decided. It lias, by the adoption of the license system, boldly as-1 serted its right to regulate it </</ liMtuin.? ! " The right to take ten pounds implies the right to take a thousand." So the State is the only umpire as to how far its interference shall extend. The license system i> prohibi- ' tion in the strictest sense of the term. It is ionAin fwnm *1IA lion<lw' tlia lltnnv ivovuiu^; iuv luiuiv uum iuu nauuo vi witv iuuim , and confining it to the few. It is saying to A. B. and C. you may be ; allowed to sell; while to all others it refuses the same privilege. We are thus led to conclude that a State has a perfect right to suppress this mischievous business. As to the expediency, we will here , say nothing; only that it is our humble opinion that no greater blessing could be bestowed j upon our beloved State, than by the iiunicdi- ^ ate enactment of a prohibitory law ; we have little doubt but that it would work satisfactorily and redound to our.social prosperity. HOW TO PRESERVE HEALTH. BY BR. HALL. The great secret of a long and healthful life, lies in the judicious use of what we eat and drink. What is "judicious" wc propose to discuss; but not in such a way as dictate dogmatically what this one or that one shall use, j but to let each one decide for himself, under the guidance of a few general principles, founded on observed facts, not 011 imagined fallacies. On the sixth day of June, eighteen hundred and twenty-two, a robust, hearty French Canadian, of eighteen years, was accidentally shot in the left side; the wound healed, but left an opening in the stomach, which allowed the physician to see what was passing inside, and ) for the space of fifteen years, a great variety )f experiments were made, and observations ' :akeu; and iu the light of these, we make our i way. In clear, cool, dry weather, a thermometer ntroduced into the stomach settled at one hun-1 Ired degrees Fahrenheit. In raw, damp,1 loudy weather, it remained stationary at nine- j y-four. One point gained, then, is that the tempera-, urc of an empty aud healthy stomach in j jood weather, is about one hundred degrees. J Soon after a meal is eaten, the temperature f the stomach is slightly increased, digestion j ;oes on healthy and well, and in four or five j lours the stomach is empty again. By diges-1 ion here, we mean that what was eaten, wheth- j r meat, bread, vegetables, or other food, is | :radually changed until it becomes whitish, j nd thinnish, and sweetish, like milk; it matters 1 lot what we eat, or how many different kinds, t is the same color, taste, and consistence, vhen digestion is healthy. When digestion is lot perfect, the food ferments, becomes sour, ises in the mouth, generates wind, causes >elching, and the like familiar symptoms.? Digestion being a process of nature, whatever irrests digestion, is a direct interference with aature, always does wrong, and if persevered in, destroys health and life, inevitably. It was further observed, that cold water 3wallowed during the process of digestion, instantly arrested it, and the process was not resumed, until the water had been there long enough to be warm from the temperature at which it was drank, to that of the stomach; or from some forty degrees, to a hundred; to accomplish this, the heat must be abstracted from the general system, chilling it. StroueJ robust persons may not feel this, but if a man in feeble health drinks cold water at a meal, it all largely, he rises from the table chilly, ind soon has a fever; while the stomach, beng kept that much longer at work in digestng the food, loses its vigor, the digestion is ?perfect, and the food becomes impure.? thus laying the foundation of disease. The inevitable inference from these facts is that cold water is injurious, if taken at meals. Injurious to the most robust if taken largely, and to persons in feeble health, if taken at all, beyond a few swallows at a meal. I therctore set it down as a clearly established fact, that a glass or more of cold water, drank habitually at meals, or soon after, is a pernicious practice, even to the most healthy. Injury is done in another manner : water or any other fluid, dfilutes the gastric juice, and thus weakens its power to dissolve the food.? The amount of gastric juice is not lessened, but its power is diminished by its dilution.? The finger will be scalded by dippihg it into a vessel of boiling water; but if an equal amount of cold water is added, it may be thrust in witn impunity, ana although there is as much heat in the mass as before, but it is more diffused. A glass of brandy will almost strangle a person not accustomed to it, but if largely diluted, it gives no discomfort, although all the brandy is there that was there before.? "We have then made another advance, that any kind of fluid largely taken at a meal, or soon after, is positively injurious to health. La rye/1/, is a relative term. An advance of fifty per cent, in the price of any thing is "large," and when it is remembered that but a few table spoons of gastric juice are furnished at a meal, a glass of cold water, or two or three cups of coffee or tea, is a large amount of fluid for one meal. Thus, a standing item of advice to my patients is?Take half a glass of water to a single meal, or a single cup of weak coffee or tea, never increasing the strength or quantity, and drink nothing within the hour after eating. If cold drinks arc injurious at meals, cold food is, for the same reason, also injurious; thus it is, that some of the most terrible forms of disease arc brought on by persistence in eating cold food, exclusively, especially "in wintertime. If cold fluids are injurious at meals, we naturally conclude that warm fluids, in moderation, are beneficial, and rightly so. The young of the animal creation are furnished with sustenance wanned by nature; and the choice morsel is warmed in the beak of the parent bird, before arriving at the nest Ui lilt )WIUJ^. AVe instinctively, almn.-t. prepare si n.* tliiiiir warm for (lie weary or the invalid ; hence the virtue uftiines ascribed to drinking milk, warm from the eow, not a very palatable hha, it must be confessed. It then billows, that it we drink any at meals, it should be first warmed. AVe may safely admit, that the universal custom of a country is founded on common souse?common sense being the teachings of experience of the civilized world is, that a cup of good hot coffee for breakfast, and a cup of good hot tea for supper, are wholesome.? If a person is prejudiced against "store tea and coffee, then any of our common garden herbs may be substituted, as balm. sage. sassafras, and like ; it is the warmth that comes fir<t in importance, and there must be the taste of something palatable in it, or tile stomach will loath it. I am well aware that some persons consider tea and coffee poisonous, as did an enthusiastic young theologian" at New Brunswick, a few years ago, and demonstrated it as he thought, to the old dotnine. then in his eighty-sixth year, and still an cihciciit laborer in the vineyard. It may be poison, as you say," replied the old veteran, as the sly mischief twinkled out of the corner of his eye, "but it must be a very slow poison, for I have taken it regularly, night and morning, for these eighty years, and as you see not dead yet." The same has also been said of Doctor Johnson. But how comes it that so many sensible people believe that tea and coffee are poisonous? Just as they have come to the adoption of any other fallacy. Somebody who had nothing else to do, imagined it. then hunted up facts to pVove it; and what with adding a little to one fact, and suppressing from another, a really plausible case was made out, to every reader or hearer who had rather admit a statement, than take the trouble thoroughly to sift its truth ; and there arc many such persons. Having said so much about a cup of tea and coffee, it is proper to say something of the preparation, individuals and natious have their preferences, but somethings must belaid down as of universal application : The first cup of coffee is the best. The last cup of tea is the best. Never take more than one cup at a meal. Never increase the strength. If it were a mere stimulant, then after a while it might, if not increased in strength and quantity, produce no sensible effect, might do no good, as brandy, opium, or any other mere stimulant; but as tea and coffee are nutritious, the more so as tlioy are used with milk and sugar, a eup of the self-same, is likely to do you as much good and as little harm twenty years hence as to-day. It has been justly said that "in the life of most persons a period arrives when the stomach no longer digests enough of the ordinary elements of food to make up for the natural daily waste of the bodily substance," the size and weight of the body therefore, begin to diminish more or less perceptibly. At this period tea comes in as a medicine to arrest the waste, to keep the body from falling away so fast, and thus enable the less energetic powers of digestion still to supply as much as is needed to repair the wear and tear of the solid tissues. A'o wonder, therefore, that tea should be a favorite, 011 the 011c hand, with the poor, whose supply of substantial food is scanty; and on the other with the aged and infirm, especially of the feebler sex, whose powers of digestion and whose bodily substance have together began to fail. Nor is it surprising that the aged female who has barely euough weekly income to buy what are called the common necessaries of life, should yet spend a portion of her small gaines in purchasing her ounce of tea. She can live (juite as well on common food, when she takes her tea along with it; while she feels lighter, and at the same time more fit for her work because of the indulgence. The time to drink tea is at supper, when the slightest meal of the day is taken ; for, by its exhilerating effects, it destroys the sense of hunger, enables a person to go to sleep without having much in the stomach to keep it working all night, and so prevent sound, refreshing sleep. One of the great secrects of health is a light supper, and yei it is a great self-denial, when one is hungry and tired at the close of the day, to eat little or nothing. Let such an one take leisurely a single cup of tea and a piece of cold bread with butter, and he will leave the table as fully pleased with himself and all the world as if he had eaten a heavy meal, and be tenfold the better for it the next morning. Take any two men under similar circumstances, strong, hard-working men, of twenty-five years; let one take his bread and butter with a cup of tea, aud the other a | hearty meal of meat, bread, potatoes, aud the i et cctras, as the last meal of the day, and I ! venture to affirm, that the tea-drinker will outlive the other by thirty years. [Note.?With what is said above relative to drinking cold water, we both agree and disagree. So far as it is stated to be unwise, especially in winter, to ' reduce too far the temperature of the stomach by j cold fluids or cold solids, we agree with Dr. Hall? but as to the dilution of the gastric juice by fluids injuring its dissolving power, we respectfully enter our (lisent. In the account that we read of the experiments with the French Canadian alluded to, it was distinctly stated that the dilution of the gastric juice with a moderate quantity of water, did not seem to impair its action in the least. And even as to the drinking of ruld water at meals in large quantities, there may be tendencies in certain individuals to too i. 1 j. 1 ' ! il._ __1.1 l._ ! gruuw nunc uuriiig uigt^nuu, which inu cum w.uur may couutcract, and thus prove beneficial. For our part, we believe that by diluting the gastric juice, and thus rendering it able to act upon a greater extent of suface, the process of digestion in many persons, is often very much accelerated. Our readers would do well not to be governed too much by mere theories in these matters.?Editor. " MY NAME'S HAYNE." Everybody remembers the story told of a \ Virginian who was riding through the Old J)o- ' miuioti during the election canvass 1804, when party spirit was running so high. Jefferson was the democratic candidate for President, and the way he was handled by the federalists was a spectacle for every body who lias dab- ' bled in the pool of politics. Our Virginian was ranked among the most virulent of Jefferson's opponents although hailing from the same ?>tate. As he rode along, he fell in with a eotunion individual also on horse- ; back, and after the usual salutations, the con- ' versation, naturally turned upon the engrossing topic of the period?politics. The Virginian was particularly denunciatory of .Jefferson.
