Pole.'. LOOK AT THE TAXES. A man drinks at a tavern, and under the in fluence of the liquor, commits crime. ITe ia arrested, imprisoned, tried, and lodged in the penitentiary. For all this you must pay. The tavern keeper gets the profit, but you pay the coat. In thia way ia made up a great part of your taxes,. .. , . ,. - , i A committee of tha New York LepiMBture stated, in a teport made by tbm to the Senate, that tha auperv.iaora of tha county of Saratoga bad made a careful tsliroeua in l&id, the result of which waa, that, of tba county tax of fifteen ttuMisand dollar a fur that year, thirteen thousand waa traceable -directly and indirectly to the re- eulta of intemperance. 1 . - - ' We will admit that thia proportion is too high to be adunted as'the" general standard. But it may be safely reckoned that nine-tentba of the poor tax, and four-fiftha of the pnron tax, including tha expenses of the trial of criminals, are chargeable to the sale and us of atrong drink.

No won der firry bni'Mcanns are arrested every day, and a thwusand dollars paid in a year fur carting helpless drunkards to prison ! LOOK AT THE CRIME! Equally intimato is the relation between In temperance and crime. Our prisons are full, and atill the cry ia that offenders escape unpun ished. It haa been established by stntieticnl da ta, furnished by the rccorde of jails, penitentia ries, courts, and police oflices, that at least four fiflliS of the crimes that become the subject of leg.-il ii quiiiition, at the public expenre, are in stigated by the intoxicating cup. Very recently, the public mind haa been out raged by a number of murders, of peculiar atro city.rommitted under the influence of itrong drink. The Lancaster tragedy should long be remembered as a warning to drunkards and a lesson to l:quor sellers. The mangled corpses of Fordney and his wifr, their blood and brains scattered ovirtlie floor end walls, and the writh ing infant with the brain oozing from its cleft scull, ahnuld be held in tho face of every man in the Commonwealth who sells or drinks the poijon that narves the arm of the murdrrtr.

Saturday i Fb. 19, I84t. J- H A " I . I. LJ- . ' . ! l . ' !. i J WARNING TO LIQUOR SELLERS. , "And what ia the eflect of tho traffic on tliose who purano it! Tho anawer to thia question, like every other page of the history of atrong drink, is written in blood! No class of men sutler more from intemperance than those who sell the poison. Of one hundred and fifty-six convicts in the Eastern' Penitentiary of thia State in 1644, ferly-n had lived at taverna! In one town in Otsego county, New York, one hundred and seventy-three individuals were li censed in forty-three years. Fifty aeven of them became drunkards, and only vovr. of the whole number added to their property. In aaingle town of Albany county, in the same State, with a pop ulation of 3000, there were forty eight dealers in alcoholic drink, during a space of thirty years. Of three, Vortt-THRKC . foiled, thirty died drunkard, and thirty-three of their sons be came drunkards. In the town of Peterborn, New York, twenty-nine persons were licensed in thirty-two years. , Five of theae abandoned the business without any ein, and ibe remnin der.TWtNTV rot'R in number, all became impo verished drunkards. In two streets ot' Cincin nati, there were jn fifteen years sixty-erven li quor dealrs, forty atx pf whom had died drunkards! ,. . These, and other similar facte that might be adduced, mflicicntly prove that the liquor s'. ler ia his nwn worst enemy that hia only troe friends are those who warn him of his dange rous and ainful occupation and thhl the prohi bition of the traffic would confer, the richest l.lcssine on thone who are engaped in it. WHAT IS THE REMEDY? i reilow citizen, we now come to tne point of this sppesl, and propose to your consideration one step at least in the way of relief. It is, the enactment of a general law allowipg to the vn teraof each district in the Stato the privilege of determining by ballot, whether taverns shall be licensed or not in their respective districts. We might, in the premises, reasonably claim more than thia. The sale ot atrong drink being an aggravated nuisance, correct legia'ation would demand its entire prohibition. The ven ding of other things, less noxious, has been pro hibited by law. The sale of tainted meat, or of the flesh of d.aeased rattle, the saleol lottery policies, and of publications of varioua descrip tions, are forbidden. The public good has been considered to require the prohibition. ' There is much atronger ground for prohibiting the stle of intoxicating drink.- But public sentiment baa been corrupted, and it is no easy thin? to purify the statute book fct nne b'ow. Wc there fore prono ct ak for nothing but what is on its face so ressnnnble, that, if the proper applica tion be made, there can !fl no doubt ol our suc cess. " We do not even propose to give to the; people the power of abolishing entirely the rale nf strong drink, but merely that iutox eating drink should not be sold by the drain in public houses, wh'n a majority of the people in the di strict are epprsed to such sale, . We are. som limes charged with aiming to control by law the appctilea of men, and to pre scribe, what they shall eat and drink This charge; ia so preposterous tha; none but knavee,' are likely to repeat, it, a n1 none but tools to give it credence. It ia not the office of law to pro tect individuals against their own vicious, appe tites. But it is its office to prevent them from injuring alhsrt, and from holding out to them dangerous temptations. - - " THE VOICE OF EXPF.RIF.NCE.' "' In every community where the habits uf the people have been changed by the suppretaionof lieesjHt-s ir tho voluutnry abandonment of toe intoxicating cup, the good results have hown forth com-picuoualy. In the lurge town of Lynn, Massachuaetts, which waa formerly bur thened with a heavy tax, for theopmrt ot sixty paupers, the Washingtonian movement reduced their number till nof one was left, "Three yreis ago," seya a Massachusetts- paper, publi shed in 1844, ' there . were 4(!i inmates In the poor house in Worceater.--l-aFt year the in mates were reduced to eleven .'

Tho people of that diatrict have no! yet restored the license eystem,oor ia it likely they ever will restore it. ' The privilege for which we contend was granted by the last Legislature to the counties of Cheater, Susquehanna, - Wyoming, Butler, Erie Dels ware.Tioga, Bradford, Crawford', Mc Kean, Elk, Warren.

" According to the census of 1S40, these eight een counties embraced a population of more than 400,000, or nearly one lourth of tha inha bitants of the State. . The votcra of theee save ral counties and districts are to vote on the ques tion of lieener or no license,. in March next. Why the remaining portion of tha State should be excluded frnra thia privilege, ia an enquiry which it becomes every freemen to press on the Legislature at its approaching aeasion. It is axtnaiahing that an intelligent communi ty ahould lmve at) lung submitted to the mon troua imposition of this 'present license law, That a rumrclling tavern ahould be filiated on a community or neighborhood, against the will ot a majority nf the cit cns of thst community or neighborhood ' is unjust snd anti-republican in tho extreme. But that ftethe men ahould have this privilege, some or mort of them, it may be residing not in the neighborhood, is a burlesque on lepi3.roTi al.ke abominable and intolerable which none but callous despots should exact, ami none but craven hearted slaves can quietly endure. Such ia the work' ingofour present License Law. In ita admin istratinn, difficulties constantly present them reives, snd .the . courts are kr-pt in continua conflict with a ltrge body nf the people. The proposed law would go far towarda removing thia difficulty. If a majority of the votera aliould decide in favor ct license, their opponent would submit, at least fur tho present. If the reverse, then all tavern-keepera would be pla ced on the same footing, end none could take the advantage nf others, except aa they offered batter accommodations in travellere. - Correspondence of the Phila.

Taylor, paa sed in the Hotue on Saturday were taken tip in the SenaTe, and amended aa became the occa sion. The preamble about the origin of the war was, on motion of Mr. Webster, left out and al so tbe proviso about the capitulation so gener ally disapproved of by th friends of the admin istration was not alluded to; but tha thanks of Congresa voted for the military oprrat.'ons at Monterey. At first the words "storming 'of Monterey" occurred i but Mr. Crittendeu aue eeeded in gettine them changed. ' The' military operations do not, of'eourae include the capitula tion. ' Thia Mr. Webster called doing "the band tame, generous thing ;" ror the Senate, while it hal a tight to beatuw praise on valor, could not, without previously instituting a course of Inqui ry undertake tecenaere ad officer entrusted with tbe command of a portion of tbe U. S. mixes. Tha debate waa very interesting, and waa principally carried on tho opposition aide ; Gov. Sagby and Col. Sevier (who spoke very briefly and very much to tba point) being the only avow ed friends of the administration, who openly complained of tbe ftienJs of Cen. Taylor trying to make an issue with the administration. Col. Sevier reminded the opposition of their vote oa the resolution by which Gen. Jackson's fine waa refunded with interest, to which they inaiated on having a proviso added to tbe effect that tbe act Itself, for which the fine was exacted, waa not justified. He said he wondered how fond tbe opposition had been grow ing of military men of late, and how Senator did change witb tbe times. On the opposition, Clayton, Webster and Crit tenden Were engail in Vindirattng the Geueral ami to shut out the rapirulation, if unable to prove its policy. Mr. Calhoun and Judge' But ler, nf South Cafolina7took ground with, the op position. Col.

In thia he waa follow ed by Sam Houston and Rnsk, ol Texas.- After Mr.. Webster's amendment had been aubttitoted, tbe Senate vct-.d unanimously for the resolution, lorty three Henatora being pretent.

Among the msny disparaging Htoric current with a claea who measure all by their own puny standard, waa one some years ago, which attri buted to Pennsylvania a tendency to Agratien ism. An eminent jurist of a neighboring State, who yet stirv vee to do honor to hia country, lis tened to these charges, and at length decided to become personally acquainted with a people from whom evils were expected. I met with him on his return from a tour through one of the richest agricultural districts of tbe Stale; perfectly relieved from hia apprehensions and amused at bis own credulity. "Sir," said be, "1 fear no poli'ic)! danger from a population with auch wives and children ; with such barn, houses, and iands, and with the hubita of perse vering industry, peculiar to your German popu lation.
