The religious Journals of Cincinnati have been the most earnest, persistent and wise advocates of the Second Amendment, and the most alarmed and grave recognizers of the enormity of the liquor traffic in Ohio. It is easy to understand their anxiety and seal when one spends any time in their city and sees how the social and business structure of this Paris of America is honey- corned with the liquor interest All over it, on every street, and in nearly every square the signs inviting customers to get their drinks here, are as stetious in their ways of attracting attention as any other branch of business competition. Instead of having to look for them they are obtrusive and crowd upon each other, on both sides of the river, in all the sub- . orbs, under and over and between all other forms of trade until one wonders if the three thousand saloons be alL Liquor taints the breath of men of every degree; and in every crowd vou are fortunate when it is -not breathed into your face. ' A woman dressed In silk staggered on the street, and wandered up and down for an hour before our windows . as helplessly bewildered with drink as any man we ever saw. Mad ame, a French lady, the wife of an Italian Dhvsician three rears in the city, from Rome, and accustomed in their land of bad ' water, to the use of light wines as a bever age, was after three days emboldened to delicately probe us to knew if we felt as they did, anxious for the passage of the Second Amendment . The drunkenness in America, even before their handsome home in one of the principal streets, was . to them appalling. And it was sigmfl- . cant, of the. public feeling and spread temperance sentiments that the silent man servant who served so quietly in this fam- . ily should also emerge from his reserve and finally have something to say of his own. accord upon this subject; and he too was very decidedly in favor of wiping out the whole thing. When, convictions of this kind are forced upon persons by what they see of the evils of the trade, it would seem that there should be none indifferent : who have other light, different antecedents and no life-long prejudices to overcome in adopting a new dispensation. The promi nent cargo of the drays and heavy convey ances of freight in Cincinnati is beer and ' liquor casks. . At the Exposition dining- rooms the number of champagne bottles and beer glasses among the dishes brought on and carried off by the waiters was sur prising.. But of course amontt the thoua ends of visitors every day very many have the local and foreign element of .a drink ing population. It would not, however, In Wellington, seem just the most inno cent and attractive thing for four ladies to sit down to a table and in their order for supper Include wine or beer. ' Yet that was done as openly as our girls would order cake and ice-cream. The sign " Free' Lunch here," is so frequent, and so many are seen to go in, where, of course, they will be expected to pay enough for drink to cover both, that one must believe . that poverty as well ss inclination helps the patronage. In 1874, when the license question was submitted to the people of Ohio, the .largest majority for free whisky was polled in Hamilton county, where the liquor interests are strongest, shown not ' only by the .number of dram-shops and sa loons, but also by the fact that one-eighth of the entire revenue collected on liquor la the United States was paid in this county. The six counties, Darke, Hiama, Preble, Montgomery, Butler, Warren and Hamil ton, which east leas than one-sixth of the " aggregate vote of the State, cast nearly one-fourth of the entire rote lor license.' It is estimated that one-fifth of the pop ulation of Cincinnati are connected in Some way with the manucfature or sale o! liquors. The brewers in the city of Cincinnati last year made over 800,000 barrels. The importation to the city was about equal to its export of liquors, leaving for city consumption the amount of its brewage, 800,000. No wonder tins transportation blocks every street crossing. Two million barrels annually of vinious and malt liq uors are manufactured and consumed in Ohio. Last year 525,030,000 gallons o( malt beer was made in the United States. In 1863, 62,000,000 gallons we- enough for our people. ' The encouragement given to malt, over spirituous liquors, has not di minished the drinking, or made less drunk ards. The dazzling attractions to entice men into these places, the amusements, the music, the freedom to come and go at all hours, the deflanoe of religion and law, that, instead of secluding itself, flaunts its wickedness; has no night of rest, no Sun day and includes woman in iis means of seduction to rob men of their wages, their their liberty and their virtue all this im presses the stranger who spends a few days in Cincinnati with an emphasis not to be described. Tricky Printers. In Cleveland the Woman's Christian Temperance Union had arranged to fur nish a complete set of tickets, mailed to every voter, so that he could exercise free dom to choose his own party but have the Amendment part of it all right, and when they were printed and just about to be sent it was found that the opposition party had bought up the printer and he had cut the form so as to omit the "yes" to the Second Amendment Then the ladies had the work all to do over, and also to do as men do stand by and watch the work to its last commitment to the mails to prevent fiaud. Such dishonesty speaks for itseK. Moral Send your printing to the En terprise office if you want it done cor rectly. Western Women. A ten-mile equistrienne race between Miss Eckles, of Northfleld, and Mrs. Ste vens, of Wabasha, was the drawinsr card one day of the Minnesota State Fair. Miss Eckles had a stable of 10 horses. Both had paiticipated in other public races. Miss Eckles last year won a 20 mile chain- punship, using 8 horses and making 13 changes in 48 minutes; and a 10 mile race with 4 horses and 7 changes in 22 minutes. She is said to be an accomplished painter, a good pistol shot and a successful educa tor. Both l.'dies ate mentioned as lady like and rese: red in their demeanor. Mis. Stevens drew up at the end of the second mile, fainted and gave up the contest List of Jurors.

The study of literature has also attained in the present day a deservedly high rank among the branches of a good education. - In nearly all the schools in toe lana me cultivation oi taste and discrimination in reading the English language is held to be indispen sable. J.nis is certainly encouraging. but there is another very important thing just here to be considered. It is with regard to the literature for the boys and girls. As yet the department for juvenile literature has received but comparatively little attention. It is true that there have been praiseworthy efforts to introduce a more Interesting and elevating class of reading into our schools, instead of the dull, desultory reading books so long in vogue. All these are signs in the right direction. and prove that there is a gradual popu lar awakening to' the importance of the subject It is to the plans of those who recognize the need of placing juvenile literature that one must look with confi dence for its permanent improvement A little serious reflection would soon convince the thinking person that it is fallacy to suppose that books for children are of less consequence than books for grown up people, or that less genius or ability -or painstaKing is requisite to write or compile them. The notion that it is easy to write for chjMren makes it seem still more easy to select for them, and the thousands of volumes with gay bindings and attractive pictures are quickly transferred from the shelves of the book stores to the nur series and children's libraries, with the most cursory glance at their contents and an absolute ignorance of their eflVcts. ' Now, to consider juvenile literature less important than adult literature is very much like considering the founda tion of a structure less important than the structure itself. To expenditure, thought and talents on the latter, whil6 neglecting the former, is in one case as disastrous as in the other. It is useless to throw the blame of this deficiency like a ball from the teacher to the pa rent, from the parent to the publisher, from the publisher to the author. All share in it and each reacts on the other. Many parents are negligent in this mat ter, and many authors, who try to be careful, do not know how to discrimi nate or to choose wisely. The general demand regulates the supply and the supply regulates those who do not know what to demand. ' What is chiefly needed is an increasing appreciation of the im portance of the subject and a general diffusion of knowledge as to the ele ments needed to form a superior juve nile literature. Whoever will animate the first, or diffuse the second, will be a Dublic benefactor in a most effective way. Children need very different mental food from adults, but they need to have it quite as pure, as true, as nutritious to all their faculties, as refining to their tastes, as rich in imaginative power, as elevating in moral tone, as dramatic in interest, and as powerful in character. When we learn bow to value and how to demand for them such a literature. the flood of immoral, coarse poetry and .feeble volumes that now corrupt the morals, enervate the mind and viti ate the taste -of our children will pass away and give place to a literature far less in . quantity,:, but far superior in quality,' and that will rank side by side with the best of any age and for any tuaeoliiie. uommous (ua.j sun. ;JTEWS OF THE WKCK.

Plaintiff executed a note to the Riley County Bank, of Manhattan, Kansas,for the loan of $782.50. Afterward, at the request of the Cashier that he should pay the same, and upon the promise of the former that he would send and get tne note, then owned ana neia oy an other party, he delivered to the Cashier, before the note was due, the amount thereof, and the Cashier executed to him receipt acknowledging the payment of the note. The Cashier then credited the amount so received from the plaintiff to the cash account of the bank, but the bank failed to pay the note or any part uiereoi at maturity, ana appropriated. all the money to its own use. The court held that by the transaction the relation of principal and agent existed between the plaintiff and the bank as regarded the fund, and that upon an assignment by the bank of all its property and ef fects to an assignee in trust for its cred itors, the plaintiff had a right to follow and reclaim the fund from the assignee. for the reason that the money was a trust fund, and not assets of the bank. and did not pass to the aasienee for dis tribution to the general creditors of the bank.

Decision in "Weekly iSotes," p. 489. PARTNERSHIP. Ordinarily the proper mode of taking and stating a partnership account, upon a dissolution occasioned by the death or retirement of a member of the firm, is to ascertain the exact condition, as near as may be, of the partnership estate at the time of the dissolution, and the num ber, amount and character of the claims upon it. To do this it is necessary to determine the amount or value of the assets of every kind and description, the amount of indebtedness due from the firm to third parties, the proportionate shares or interests of the several mem bers of the firm in the joint property. and the state of their respective accounts with the firm. In adjusting the ac counts of partners, the losses should be paid first out of profit, next out of cap ital, and lastly bv having recourse to the partners individually. The assets of the partnership should be applied first in paying the joint debts and liabilities to non-partners. Second, in paying each partner ratably what is due from the firm to him for advances, as distin guished from capital. Third, in paying each what is due him from the hrm in respect of capital. Lastly, the ultimate residue, if any, should be divided as profits between the partners. Kosen- stiel vs. Gray et al., Supreme Court of Illinois. ATTORNEY AND CLIENT. An attorney at law ought not to ac cept a retainer in a case when he be lieves that tne law is against ms client. It is not his duty, in order to subserve the interest of his client, to mis-state the law and the facts. If be be satisfied that the client can not recover except by perversion of the law and the facts, the attorney ought not to take the case. But the fact that an attorney has, under a prior retainer, advocated views of the law and facts different from those upon which his client rests his case, or has officially, as a judge or officer of the Government, heldf a different view of the law and the rights of the parties. will not of-itself disqualify him from re ceiving a retainer. An attorney has the right and privilege to change his views upon the law and facts of a case when reason requires it Smith et al. vs. Chi cago & Northwestern Railway Compa ny, Supreme Court of lowa. CONDEMNING LAND FOR PUBLIC CSS. Every company seeking to condemn land for a public improvement must, in a modified degree, be permitted to iudc-e for itself as to the amount that is necessary for such purpose. This right is subject to all constitutional and statu tory restrictions, and to the further limitation that the courts are clothed with ample power to prevent any abuse of the same. If the court can see, from the facts stated and its general knowl- oilnm nf t.hn lnc&litv and public wants. that the lands sought to De taken are manifestly in excess of what is reason ably necessary for the purpose stated in the petition, it will be fully warranted in denying the application; otherwise it will not. Smith et al. vs. C. W. L Railroad Company. Supreme Court ot Illinois. CONSIDERATION. In an action on a promissory note it was alleged that the sole consideration of the note was a debt to the payee which he had voluntarily discharged. Held, that as it appeared from the agreed statement of facts that the cred itor uau k1tc1 uiu ut.wiv. .. of the debt, the presumption arises that the release was in such strm as to op ra.ta as an extinsruishmcnt of the obli gation in the absence of any showing as to the form of such release. And a debt voluntarily released by the cred itor is not sufficient consideration to snnnort a promise of the debtor to pay him the amount of the debt.
