1UC11M0ND PALLADIUM. Thursday Morning, ;:::::: ::: Jaae 7, I8S4. ; The Law nst. be Enforce.. J Before another issue of our paper shall ! come before its readers, the advent of Prohi- bkion will be upon our State with all its bless- i ings. That great boon for which so many petitions hare been sent to the legislature, for which so many speeches hare been made ' so many resolutions adopted, and so many prayers been offered up in the deep sincerity of j crashed and bleeding hearts, will be upon our ; State. U O me inenas OI lernperance reauie their position? Is the great fact that intem perance is to be banished from our State, ap preciated by the people? We fear it is not. And yet it should be. All should feel the im portance of their position, and appreciate the responsibilities which now rest upon every advocate of Prohibition in the State. You owe it to yourselves, to your country and to humanity, to see that the law is enforced. Your appeals heretofore have been to the drunkard and to the liquor dealer, now the appeal comes to you. You have made long and loud professions as to what you would do if the legal power to restrain intemperance were placed in your hands. Will you fulfil those pledges, or will you see the law become a dead letter upon your statute book? Thou sands of drunkards, whose appetites have bound tliem to Bacchus, now look to you to break their chains, and by a most summary process to destroy the fetters which have bound them. Thousands, who for many years have been worse than widowed mothers, now lock to you for a restoration of husbands who wore once sober and industrious. Thousands, of more than orphaned children, now look with confidence to you for the blessings of ; kind and indulgent fathers. Will your hearts ) be hardened to these appeals? Shall the ap-' peal of the drunkard be unanswered the j prayer of tho mothers unheeded, and the j cry of tho children be disregarded? No! they must not be. The law must be enforced, j Friends of temperance, if you now falter in the performance of the work you have so long begged and prayed for, a deep stigma will rest upon you. You must enforce the law, or belie all your former professions, and ! wear the mark of the hypocrite branded upon your brow. But we believe you will be faith-; ful to your obligations. The victory is too near i won to be given up now. The seige has been j too long and too hotly contested, to be desert- 1 ed, when the pure white banner of temper ance is ready to unfold itself where so recent- ly floated the black flag of king Alcohol. You have obtained a proud and invincible position, but it must be maintained. Then let your high resolve and stern decree be, "the Law must and shall be enforced."' On Monday evening next, a meeting will bo held at the Starr Hall, for the purpose of considering the position of affairs. Dr. C. W. Thompson of Indianapolis, is expected 'o be present, and address the meeting. Every friend of the cause is respectfully invited to bo present; and it is hoped that our citizens will all turn out t 1 ''d- "- dawning of the bright Sun of Prohibition, which will rise on the 1 2th of June. In connection with this meetinsr, we hav; one suggestion to make to our worthy Mayor and City Council; and that is, for them to pre -1 vent the kindling of bonfires, the throwing of firo balls in the streets, and other suchlike demonstrations which are calculated to do no good, but from which much evil may arise. Let our resolves be made in the dignity of un flinching determination knowing we are right "go ahead!" I i m i j The Agricultural Ilureaa. j The Agricultural Bureau which has been ! attached to the Patent Office at Washington, j is to be discontinued in a week or two, the appropriation for it being exhausted. j So it soems that the only beggarly pittance 1 which Congress in its wisdom has seen fit to vouchsafe to agriculture, is about to be cut off, and tho farming interest left to take care of itself. The agricultural attachment to the Patent Office has, .during its brief period, been of very considerable benefit in the col lection and distribution of seeds, and in gath ering up and disseminating a largo amount of information upon the various practical and scientific subjects connected with husbandry. Although a good deal of its time and money ha been expended without a proper knowl edges of its requirements, owing to difficulties inherent in its organization, yet these could easily have been remedied by care and good management, and the system instead of being starved out, might have been fostered and de veloped until it would have been one of the most important departments of our govern ment. It is a most humiliating thought to the great Agricultural interest of the United States that while millions of money are squan dered in useless flummery and gewgaws, the public treasury robbed by Congressioaal en actments to appease the maw of rascally poli ticians and corruptapcculators fat offices and large salaries created to reward favorites and conciliate rivals that amidst all this prodigal and indiscriminate in of the public treasure, cone have been found in our National Coun cils to even acknowledge the existence of an interest upon which four-fifths of all our wealth and revenue is based. It is not idle to say that one inch additional depth of ground turned up by the plow throughout our whole farming country, would yield an increase of agricultural products that, if sold at the pres ent -TSte-of prices, would buy up the votes of ! a clear majority of our incorruptible and pro-! found Congress, and carry, in the hands of a ; gooA political trickster, any measure through ! that body, from the purchase of Cub to the saletf the Bunker Hill Monument. vyiat would this boasted Union be but for its agricultural interests? Where your reve nue for State or General Government? But here is the question for fanners: whose is the fault that these things exist? So long as you allow yourselves to be doped aad humbugged by npisy politicians and demagogues so long i i as you cast your votes for men who by their impudence and pretence, bring themselves be fore the people as candidates for office so long, in fact, as you blindly shut your eyes to your own wants, and lend yourselves as willing tools to forward the selfish purposes, and ad vance the personal fortunes of pretenders and insolvent politicians just so long you may expect to see profligacy and corruption in high places, and a more than Cimmerean darkness cover the wants of the laborer and the hus bandman. Farmers should take this matter into their own hands at once, and apply the remedy which is so completely in their power. Teach these upstart lawyers and trading poli ticians who haunt your county seats and State Capitals, that the man for your suffrages must be of the soil, and iced to its interest, and you will have no more difficulty in getting a proper recognition of your wants and rights. When you draw your purse to pay your taxes, , , , , .. , ak yourselves what prprtioa of the me-ney f r J will go towards fostering the great master spirit of National prosperity Agriculture. w. t. d. . "Roorback." In an editorial a few weeks since we stated that the "judges of the Octo - , , ,. . XT .,, ? , , . . , ber election at New Albany, had dented the charge that persons were kept away from the polls," fec. In reference to this the editor of the State Sentinel says: "It is roorback of the Palladium." We made the statement up- , . , , r on authority of the EvansviHe Journal, where we find the following language: "The judges of the October election in New Albany, have already come out in cards and publicly denied i . ... , , f the charge, that voters were kept awav from , ,, . . . . ," . the polls there, by a mob or in any other not- " 1 ous way. Ihis was our authority, and hence our friend of the Sentinel will not give us credit forgetting up a roorback. Our f- 1 . t. -it t 1 x. friend ot the hvansville Journal may have . . J been mistaken as to time, but not as to fact, which is much better than many of our "old liner" friends, who are frequently mistaken both as to lime and fact. ; JfcClure Library Fund. Some twelve or fifteen years since, a Mr. McClure of New Harmony, Indiana, died, leaving property to the amount of nearly half a million, which, by the terms of his will was bequeathed in sums of five hundred dollars, to associations of mechanics and laboring men, and those "who earn their living by the sweat of their brow," (so the will reads.) for the purchase of Libraries. Any such association havirig a lecture room, and one hundred doi- lars' worth of books, is entitled to the benefits of the will. By some means the case was taken into the court, where it was pending for a number of years. Recently, the matter was decided by the Supreme Court, and Judge Alvin P. Ho- vey, administrator with the will annexed, is now.CQmplying with the provisions of the will. The administrator would prefer that the entire amount of the bequest be expended in this State, but associations out of the State are not precluded from its benefits. In Posey county, we understand, some ten or twelve , associations have been formed, and have each received their five hundred dollars. We hope at least one such association, in j each township in this county, will be formed immediately, and the amount drawn. Let ; one hundred dollars in books bo bought or; av,vi, ua lniorm Judge llovty ot it. His I address is Mt. Vernon Ind. If the library is ! kept in the same room and by the same per- j sons as the township library, the two libraries might furnish a rich variety of useful read ing. We copy the above from the Brookville American, and have seen the same notice in several other papers. In several counties, we have noticed the organization of societies for the purpose of securing the benefits of the bequest. There are several societies in this place that possess the necessary qualifications to receive the 8500. Several years ago, Mr. M'Clure sent sever al works, of an infidel character, to a literary society in this place, and we believe they re fused to receive them, on account of their ob jectionable character. He was at that time, we believe, connected with Robert Dale Owen, in some literary enterprise. We suggest, to our young men to make application torpor- tions of this -bequest. Brass Ksccki.ks.

Tom Corwia's Speech. j Mr. Corwin made a speech at the Mechan- j ical Exhibition now in progress at Cincinnati, ': on Friday of last week. We make the fol- lowing extract from the introduction of that ... ! speech, just for the fun there is in it: ! He related an anecdote of a physiologist, ' who, having studied the anatomy and econo- , my of man, came to the conclusion that as liver secreted bile, so the brain secreted tho't, j and in his ardent pursuit of this idea, this ! philosopher proposed to a poor parish, not ; able to pay a live preacher, to furnish them a I machine with a working brain, and agreed that this leather parson should reason upon j Scripture as well as most country parses j did.

King David was the i . . , - 1 . . J e , 3 IT ! best and greatest man of his time. He re- j maiTUd that in alluding to characters in scrip- i ture, he spoke of them as historical merely, and ! did not wish to be regarded as treating them j in a trifling or irreverent manner. But if Da-, vid were, in the year of Grace 1 855, a citizen j of Hamilton county, although he was the i Lord's anointed, he doubted whether either ; the Whig or Democratic parties, (if such ! things wtsre in existence now-a-days,) or the ; Know Nothings or that other set called the : Sag Nichts even, would bring out the name j of David as a candidate for the Presidency, they would say. "It won't do to bring David j UP- Won't the opposition presses get hold of ; 'hat case of L'riah? and if they do, what j shall we say? No, we must have Marcy or j Douglas." And David would be withdrawn ; for want of a good moral character. Ho also alluded to Jacob and Laban, and j to the will of Isaac, and said he never looked j at a black eyed woman, that he was not re- j minded of that designing woman Rebecca, ; and of Jacob who bored the head of Holoph- j ernes (?) with a ten penny nail. i Noah, spared for his goodness, would, if he were now in Ohio, bo arrested under the 1 liquor law.

The peo- pie in the immediate vicinity supposing it to be the cause of much of the ill-health they j have had to endure, sometime during last summer cut a hole in the dam so as to let the ! water out. The Trustees of the Canal then I agreed to cut out all the timber, and thus de-! prive it of at least one of its sources of en- i gendering disease. They refitted up the dam, ! and during the winter removed the timber, j About a month since, the dam was again, i destroyed by a mob of men, disguised with j blackened faces. The Trustees appealed to j the Governor for the protection of their pro- j perty, and Gov. Wright has issued a procla-1 mation, offering a reward of five hundred dol- I lars for the detection of the perpetrators ofj the outrage. In the meantime, the Trustees have been repairing the breach in the dam;' and on Tuesday morning the 29th inst., the I work was suspended under a threat of per-! sonal violence to the contractor if he did not ' desist.

From the Louisviile Journal 31st ; Mormon Emigrants. The steamer Amazon arrived about 2 o' clock yesterday from Pittbburg, and after dis- charging some freight, went over the falls, bound for St. Joseph, Mo. The Amazon had 1 on board about 550 Mormon emigrants, in charge of Elders Barrow and Stevenson, go ing to Salt Lake. We went on board. The majority of them were on the lower deck, and feeling some anxiety, walked in that direction. A Mormon guard bad however been placed at the entrance, who refused us permission to go back. We did not ask the cause, but it was doubtless to prevent the women from seeing a handsome man. The deck was crowded with men, women, and children, of all sizes and ages the juve niles having by far the preponderance in num bers. There seemed to be about six children to each woman and three or four women to each man. We saw but three or four old fe males. The men rather iu low spirits and dis contented, and the children kept up a continu al bawling. They were all healthy looking and clean. Nearly every woman carried a child in her arms, and another bv htrside that was barely able to walk. The boat had to lighten, and the majority came on shore and walked to Portland. They were principally English aud Wtlsh, and some few Scotch and French. There are 750 more at Pittsburg waiting for transportation, and we see from the New York papers that the ship Wm. Stetson has just arrived there with 293 more. Other ship loads are said to be due. There is a "Perpet ual Emigration Fund' to pay the passage of poor Mormons to this country, and "Emigrant : Agents" are stationed at various points in Eu-; rope, Asia and Africa, to facilitate the transit ; of the latter Day Saints to the Great Salt Lake. This season the Liverpool agency has seat off over 3,000, of which above, 1,100 were at the expense of the fund. Hard to Answer. The New York Even ing Post, thus states the cace in regard to the Kanzas ou'.rages: If there was any provocation offered by the ' people of the free states in going where they had a right to go, settling where they had a right to settle, and purchasing land where they i had a right to purchase it, it was not a pro vocation either to force or fraud; it was simp- ly a provocation to retaliate by sending colon- ists friendly to the institution of slavery. The j territory was open to the inhabitants of the slave states as wllas the free. All that they j had to do was to occupy it and frame its in- i stitutions after their own pattern, if they could obtain the majority. The emigration from the free states, say , these apohgisU for the dishonest proceedings of the Missourians, was a challenge and de- i fiance. Let it be a challenge to a race and not to a fight. It was boldly and openly made: Let ss see." they said, "who, ia a fair con test of speed, will "get into the country first.' The Missourians instead of abiding by the challenge, and giving their antagonists a fair field, take arms in their hands and driv? them oat of it. It is precisely as if two men should bet on a horse race, and one of them seeing the other likely to r-at. should snatch the stakes oat of the hands of the holder and run off with them. This is an illustration wlk-h we suppose will be understood in Missouri. The municipal election in Washing ton city, held on Monday last, was carried by the American party by a majority of 555. W A wedding party in Washing'on co., Maryland, were poisoned on Sticday last, by ; eating custard in which arsenic had been placed. Twenty-five of the party, including the bride, are not expected to recover. The tiend who perpetrated the act is not known. The official returns from Virginia re duce Wise's majority below 10.0OO.

Grose and Julian as the probable can didates for the nomination for the Judgshipof the republican or people's party, and seems surprised, if not hurt, that Judge Smith, the real people's man, should be over-looked. I j hope to be excused by Mr. Smith and his friend "One of the People," for this omission. In ! speaking of the nomination of a candidate by i our political friends, I did not think it neces- ! sary or proper to connect with it those of an ; opposite political faith honestly opposite no doubt; but still opposite, and least of all Judge Smith, whose steadfast and uncompromising i opposition to the people's party, and un waver-' ing fidelity to the Administration party, mark- j ed him as an object of favor, and secured him the position he now occupies. I certainly said nothing against Judge Smith, nor do I intend to, more than that he owes his present elevation to his devotion to party and the Ne braska swindle, the notorious test of party fea'ity with the gentlemen opposite. And it strikes me as refreshingly cool, this warm ; weather, lor Mr. Smith or his friend to at- I tempt thus to ignore party, at this particular j juncture. It is a poor rule that will not work ; both ways; if Mr. Smith came into office under party preferences Le should be content to go out under the same rule. But at all events, I ; trust Mr. Smith and his friend "One of thej People" will have the forbearance to wait till f we select our candidate before they despatch him. We expect to select a man who is nood. and true; the fast friend of freedom, and if he ! is not. at least as good a man, and as well ! qualified in every particular as the "old line"' ; candidate, he ought to be beaten. But we havo ! no fears on thai point. ' When I wrote the communication referred ! to, I was not apprised of Mr. Julian's views j and wishes on the subject, but I am happy to ' say now that I am informed that he will con-; sent to run, if it should be the wish of thos : with whom he acts, that he should do so. ; So far as I know, it is wholly untrue that Mr. J. Las been laboriously canvassing for the ; office, or making any effort to obtain the nom- ; ination. But if he wants the ofSce, I sup-; pose he will not be too modest to say so, and ' make some effort in his own behalf if his friends should select him as their choice for the place. A YOTER.
