TEHPEBAHCS, IN Bona or ITS LEGAL E
LATIONS.—This was the eubjeot of an ear
nest, practical lecture delivered on Tues
day evening in the Congregational "huroh
by Rev. Satterlee. The leotarer put thecounty
question mere distinctly, in beginning, as
follows: Ought the government to .license
the sale of spirituous liquors as a bever
age He maintained that it should not
that as the purpose of good government
was to secure to the people safety of per
son and property, it was fostering its bit
terest foe by granting licenses for the sale
of intoxicating liquors. Alooholio drinks
were a toe to every thing upon which gov
ernment rested—to education, to good
morals, and to religion. Mr. Satterlee de
monstrated that financially the granting of
licenses was a great mistake, as the ex
pense involved to the government and the
people was very many fold in excess of the
income derived. He cited in proof a va
riety of statistics from the census returns
and from our own local affairs. The
amount of money paid out for and on ac
count of liquors is,. in this country, more
than the amount paid for the six leading
articles of food and clothing. The lecturer
attacked the license system as being the
root of the whole evil, charging it with
giving a degree of strength and an air of
respectability to the traffic which it could
not otherwise obtain. Mr. Satterlee was
thoroughly in earnest, and was listened to
with marked attention.
The next lecture will be on Tuesday
evening next, by Col. Chas, D. Kerr. Sub
ject: "The Riddle of the Sphinx."

BIBTH AND DEATHS.—From Mr. E. B.
8trong, ihe obliging Clerk of the District
Court, we gather some interesting items
relating to the births and deaths in Stearns
during 1870. Reports were received
from only 24 townships. The number of
births is given at 875 deaths, 121. The
places of nativity of the decedents are
en as follows:
The larger proportion being from con
sumption is caused by the very many con
sumptive persons coming to Minnesota for
their health. Somany put off coming until
they have no other hope—until every other
means of cure has been tried and has failed

in the fore-arm yesterday.- had a
Colt's rifle lying across his lap, and as the
caps were small was tapping them lightly
with his knife to crowd them on the tube,
when one of the outside chambers of the
cylinder was discharged. The ball (whioh
was large) struck the barrel and glanced
into his arm. He came here to-day to see
Dr. Wheelock, but the ball was so deeply
imbedded in the flesh that the Doctor
thought best'not to attempt its extraction.
Mr. is in good spirits and doing as well
as could be expected."
—We clip the following from the Flint
"On Wednesday, the 11th inst., the mar

The display of presents was very handsome,
comprising the usual array of silver, jewel
ry and many other bidutiful articles. Af
ter an ample collation the guests adjourn

REPORTING- BIRTHS AND DEATHS.—
have heretofore called the attention of heads
of families and others interested, to the
law passed by the.last Legislature requir
ing them to report to city and town clerks
all births and deaths within thirty days af
ter their occurrence. As there is a heavy
penalty attached by the law for neglecting
so to report, we quote Section 5 for the
benefit of our readers:
"Soc. 5.—Parents shall give notice to
the clerk of their city or town of the births
and deaths of their children every house
holaer shall give like notice of eve*y« birth

EDITOR JOURNAL.-—The "season"
was fairly opened by Mrs. Peter Mony,
who gave a large party at her hand,
some residence in honor of her brother,
Wm. Banyan, who bad just returned
from an extensive tour through Europe.
The supper was splendid, and Dr. Brown
D. A. Roberts and a few others whom
I might mention did their duty. Jeft.
Wiley undertook to teach a few of the
young folks the shoemaker's trade, but
not understanding it very well, sat
down—rather hard. The party was a
perfect success, and everybody went
home happy. I understand that AJ rs.
Martin Greeley, wifa of our newly
elected County Commissioner, intends
to keep the ball rolling by inviting a
largo number of people to an oyster
supper. I am fond of oysters, and hope
the party will come off soon.
A young gentleman, a stranger, from
parts unknown, came to the house of
G. D. Kcefe a few days ago. They
say he looks like G. D., and weighs
10 pounds. Albert Winslow also
found his wife embracing a young man,
but upon inquiry found him to be a
relative of his, so didn't get mad, asit
was her first offense.
An event occured here yesterday,
that created some considerable excite-
ment for a while. A party of about
forty men and women, armed for the
purpose, went to the house of Bishop
B. U. Watkins, and while the ladies
were entertaining the old gentleman
within the house, the men commenced
their work of demolition without: A
large pile of four-foot wood, neatly oiled
up, was torn down and chopped in
two and split up fine another large
pile of sled-length logs was smashed to
pieces, making it unfit for anything
else but stove wood. The women then
gave the men a sign which they under-
stood, and they ru?hed into the house
and commenced the work of destruction
there. S. Toung, Simon Parker, A
Wade, Henry Wiley and Bennett de-
stroyed more cakes, pies, baked beans
and other eatables than any other* four
men there, and I noticed the ladies
still urging them on. But here these
