The following commiinu:tition from an
pnrcnt on tl»* Hiilijfirt of a preval
ent vice among youni: men nl the present
day—the vice of excessive drink—is writ
ten in a tone nnd spirit that will command
poculinr respect. It cannot hut l»e alarm
ing to both a thoughtful father nnd prud
ent mother to lmve sons and daughter#
growing up around them, and feel that
neither the one nor the other can go out
into the world, even anions the ria ng
generation, witnes.sini: so much inebria
tion. When spectacles of this kind are
so common, drunkenness comes to be
regarded as a venal offence, nnd little by
little youn: men of whom wc expect better
things acquire the terrible habit from asso
ciation. \V hat a reflection for an affection
ate parent! And what hope can n younj:
woman l.ave of happiness in her future if
her husband, choose she discreetly as she
may, is ever surrounded by an example of
drunkenness no general and so contagious
But our correspondent writes as follows
DEAR TIMES:—Will you, or some of your
able writers, do me nnd society in general
the pleasure to make some comments and
warning on the subject of the growing
habitual intemperance among our young
I have just returned from a month's
travel with my }roung people, and I am
really shocked at the progress this vice is
making among the young men who seem
to think no enjoyment can take place
I naturally wish my children to make
acquaintances among their own country
men before I make a contemplated tour in
Europe in a year or two, but scarcely a
young man was in a natural state belore
the evening closed in the best hotels, and
I did not like my daughters to coutinue
acquaintances made under such circum
stances and, while unwillinsi to distrust
mv boys, I felt nneasy whenever they were
out of my sight lest they might be accept
ing the perpetual invitations to drink.
Do, Mr. Viditor, enlarge as you know
how on this subject. 1 wish my girls to
marry American men, but is it not beyond
contradiction that they are becoming a
nation of drunkards?
To this communication we havo only to
add our regret that the ovcr-indulgence in
6trong drink is so common, and to deplore
that the influence of the temperance folk
has been so completely annihilated by its
admixture with partisan politics nnd its
unwise disposition to coerce men instead
of relying upon moral suasion. The. mo
ment that "temperance"' went into politics
it threw away all chance of success, and
the moment its ad
votes abandoned persua
tion for force (as in the "Main Liquor law)
they began to make drunkards not dim
mish Bhcir number. "Prohibition"' has
manufactured moro inebriates in a month
than "temperance*' could rescue in a year.
The result is apparent. Drunkenness is
far more common now than it ever was
before in this country—and all through
the treachery of those leading advocates
who have been far more anxious to ride
into political position on their hobby than
lave their fellow uien l'rom destruction.
CACOHT A TARTAR.—Col. Wm. Smyth,
being over-persuaded, sent a challenge to
Van Bennett the other day, while he was
Cedar Rapids, to which Van promptly
responded. The discussion came on in
the court house, at Marion, in Smyth's
own town, and resulted most gloriously in
the Democratic cause. Smyth took the
broad radical ground in favor of funding
the national debt, nnd paying it all in
gold, against taxing the bonds to help pay
the National debt, thus confining the pay
ment of the whole debt to the laboring
and producing classes—in favor c.f the
prohibitory laws of this state, and decid
edly in favor of nigger suffrage. It will
te seen by this that Mr. Smyth takes the
whole grounds for radicalism. According
to all accounts there never was a worse
used up man than was Smyth in this dis
cussion, so badly that he was repudiated
by the people of his own town, in radical
Linn, "the banner county of the State."
After the two candidates had plainly stated
their positions, Mr. Bennett called for a
vote of the audicncc in favor of and against
the platforms, and NOT ONE VOTE res
ponded to Smyth's proposition, while the
whole house rose en-masse in favor ef the
popular Seymour and Blair doctrine, ONE
CURRENCY FOR ALL, and for taxing
alike, the bond-holder and the laborer.
The people arc on our side this time sure.
Mr. Smyth can never carry that doctrine
through this district and live politically,
and we opine that it will be n long time
before ho will challenge Van Bennett

A correspondent sought to hare the New
York Citizen come out for Grant and
Colfax, and received the following in
Pay for a Freedman's Bureau, ten mil
lions for a great number of unnecessary
bayonets, sixty millions for a useless large
navy, forty millions for a protective tariff,
two hundred millions for crazy schemes
of reconstruction, four hundred millions
and for innumerable corrupt office holders,
a thousand millions. We love Grant, ad

SEEDING STRAU KERRY "PRESIDENT
Wti.DER."—In the September number of
the American Journal of Horticulture the
published announce that they have pur
chased of Col. Wilder the entire stock of
his new Seeding Strawberry, which they
to offer subscribers of 1809, giving
two plants. The well known repu
tation of Col. Wilder, and the fact that he
would not allow his name to be associated
with anything but the best, will make the
demand for "The President Wilder Straw
berry" very large and as it can be had
only by subscribing for the American
Journal of Horticulture, we advise our
readers to send in their names early, so
that they may secure the plants. Speci
