Tho concert at the Congregational Church Friday evening was well attended and the programme was executed in a manner to satisfy tho most exacting.

In listening to the war songs we were carried back to April, 1601, and even . to October 171 h, 18.'0, when the news was heralded across the country that John Brown and a posso ot men had captured the United States arsenal at Harper's Fer ry, Vs., and were about to march into the State and free the slaves.' The next war like matter was the seceding of South Carolina In December, lb60;ihen followed the news on the morning of April 16, 1861, that Major Anderson bad evacuated Fort Sumter. On April 17tu was read Presi dent Lincoln's proclamation, calling for .seventy-five thousand men. This was considered tremendous number of men, but when divided up among the different States, it reaulred Maine to furnish but . one regiment; Ohio six, and so on; and, before the war closed, Ohio luraished bout three times the whole number call ed lor at first. The subject .ot enlisting was not talked ot without great excite ment, durlnf the first year, but' afterwards members of families would talk the, mat ter over In a business Ilka way.

For some time past It has been the de sire of certain members of Company 0, 5th Regiment, O. N. 0., to be mustered out pi service. Such desire was made manifest to Assistant Adjutant-General W. S. Wickham at the general Inspection held in Armory Hall, Saturday evening, March 20th . He Informed Capt. Cook that, in case this company was mustered out, a number of other towns were ready to form companies to take its place. Last week Capt. Cook received orders to call a special meeting ot the company for the purpose ol mustering It out of service. Monday evening the company convened at Armory Hall, ench member bringing In his outfit of clothing. Twenty. four men ami Lieutenants Metcalt and Puiitl report ed ami Capl, Cook proceeded to mutcr tliein nut of service. The clothing and arms were then packed and shipped to the Slate arsenal at Columbus. When these are In-spi-cled Capt. Cook will receive his dis charge, Capt. Cook and Lieut. Paull had not purchased uniforms or side arms, as It has leeii evident for some time that the company would soou be disbanded. Company G was organized in April, 1884, with J. J. Thomas as Captain, II. G. Starr and C. McDermott as 1st and 2nd Lieutenants. In June, 1885, Capt. Thoin as resigned and Lieut. Starr became Cap tain and W. S. Metcalf, 1st Lieutenant lu his place. In September, 1885, on ac count of business relations, Capt Starr resigned, also Lieut. McDermott. W. L. Cook was elected Captain and Chas. Paull, 2nd Lieutenant, and they, with Lieut. Met call were the officers of the company until It was mustered out. " Aggressiveness of the Liquor Traffic, Evil seems always more aggressive than good ; It is always on the alert to occupy new ground. The embezzler, now rusticating In Can ada or Italy, commenced by taking a small sum of money for some special, possibly good, object, and, replacing It, excused himself as having wronged no body. He next took, or borrowed as he called It, a large turn, expecting to replace it soon ; but advene speculation, extrava gance or, possibly, gambling made it nec essary to alter the books to cover up the shortage. : Then hoping, by a brave effort at speculation, to retrieve hU losses and be able to replace his employer's' money, he took a Larger sum and again lost This time the amount Is too large to be cover. dt exposure end the penitentiary ltae WELLINGTON ENTERPRISE, Boots?

Thus It ever is ; when wrong gets the upper hand It drives Its victims to greater depths of Iniquity. One of the strongest, reasons we have for believing that the rum power Is fast nearlng Its end, Is Its desperate efforts for power. It attempts to dominate the Gov ernment, which has always protcted It, so that It has grown rich beyond parallel within tho past decade. It was so with the slave power. Wrong In principle, It degraded Its subjects, stifled their con sciences, dwarfed their intelligence and encouraged conceit and pride, which al ways precedes a fall, until they sought to Introduce their barbarous institution Into the Territories, and even boasted that they would call their slave rolls under the shadow of. Bunker Hill Monument By using some of tho leaders in the old par ties they finally passed that climax of vil lainy, the Tugltive Slave Law, and de struction soon followed. The rum-seller has been among the first to take the field In every new State and Territory j has been the first to be repre sented In their legislatures, and Is now defying the people from his entrench ments In the Capitol building of our Na tion. No home has escaped his wither ing touch. With brazen effrontery he has planted his open door to destruction be side the church and school-house. ' IHs ingenuity has been taxed to Invent and secure attractions, which are not to be mentioned, to allure boys and young men Into their dens, and when they have be come confirmed drunkards and their mon ey Is all gone, he kicks them out to end their careers In the doggery, alms-house or penitentiary. We have tolerated and protected the rum-sellers until now we awake to the fact that they barely tolerate us.. We have al lowed them to prosecute their nefarious business six days of the week, and now they want what the men who sell the neo essltles of life never ask for, the seventh ; and they don't propose to wait for the law's permission, but take the day any. how. ' We have sacrificed each year thousands and thousands of fathers, Sons and husbands to this power, and yet they are not satisfied. The time was when they made request of legislatures for laws; now they demand them, and threaten de- WEDNESDAY.

The liquor dealers of Cleveland held a mass meeting lately and unanimously de cided to open their saloons on Sunday In violation of the wishes of the best people of that city, the law and the decisions of the courts. At a mass meeting of a class of Germans In Cincinnati, who claim to control twenty-five thousand votes, It was resolved to vote for no officer or law-maker who was not pledged for the repeal of all Sunday laws, and at tho same time it was declared that they would disregard such laws until they were repealed. In Philadelphia grand Juries are to lie boy. cotted who find bills of Indictment against nitn-sellers. What has been eald of these cities Is true of nearly all our larg. cities. Almost a quarter of a million of men (I beg pardon ; I mean rum-sellers) aro in open rebellion against our Government, defying Its laws and law-makers. We are called radical and extreme in our language. Is there a lover of his coun try between the Atlantic and Pacific who, In view of these facta, can blame us ? Is anybody able to proerly characterize such a heartless rebolllon as the rum-seller Is waging against the country which has nourished and protected It? I wish that I was master of language sufficiently starting to arouse the Nation to a sense of Its danger. Either the saloon power must glvewsy, or respect for obedience to law must go, and our Christian Sabbaths must become a lost blessing. It the rum power continues to Increase, the Institu tions founded by the early fathers upon Intelligence, self-restraint and respect for the right, must fall a prey to tills aggres sive vandal. If we would escape the reign of desolation, we must relegate the rum-seller's business to destruction. Which shall It be, venerable men of years who have tolled, possibly bled, or your country? Which shall It be, young men who must live In and rule this coun try the next generation J Which shall It be, Christiana who are anxious to know the cause of the growing unbelief and skepticism that seems almost epidemic among us T Should not we awake to the Impending danger when the rum power lays Its ruthless hand upon our officers of law, defies the mandates of courts and controls legislatures and ejections.
