Ed. Fall AniuMr--Since my letter
from Indianapolis, I have held largo
and most enthusiastic meetings in
Hendricks, Morgan, and Owen conn-.
, tied, and find, more than ever, that
the people are eager, and even anxious
to hear the cause of temperance dis
cussed. The fact is, they have wit
nessed the blighting, withering curse
of intemperance upon persons, fami
lies, and Society, until they are tired
and disgusted with the whisky traffic.
1 In this town, they tell me, that some
of the most determined opponents to
! the granting of permits at the last scs-.
' sion of the ; Commissioner's ' Court,
were intemperate - men.--Aney took
the position ifaa they never could re
form as long as those whisky' dens
. 4 mi il
were , in tneir miast. iney seo ineir
: sad condition, and therefore, in order
to assist them in their endeavors to
reform, they worked most heroically
to defeat the granting of permits. If
some of our good, moral, and religious
people would only hack up these en
deavors with earnestness, soon would
the open traffic of liquor be banished
from our commonwealth.
At Mooresville, in Morgan county,
we held a two days' temperance con
vention. ; People assembled , there
from a radius of seven miles round.
The largest hall in town was crowded
at every session. ' Resolutions of an
earnest, radical character were passed,
declaring that as the rum traffic is the
greatest curse to our country, and as
it is of vital importance that men in .
favor of temperance should be elected
to office, they would not support any
candidate for office by their ballots
who is not in favor of stringent tem
perance legislation. These resolu
tions were passed by a rising vote, al
most unanimously.
At Martinsville, the county seat of
Morgan, where two years ago I went
T to hold a temterance meeting, but ut
' terly failed, from the fact that I could
not get a single person in that town to
assist me in getting up a meeting. At
that place, I found on my arrival, the .
. town hall filled to overflowing, wait
' ing anxiously for the speaker. I had
for chairman, G. W. Grubbs, one of
: the most influential and best citizens
of Morgan county, and on the plat
form sat some of the leading men of
the county. Ministers, doctors, law
yers, were in full 'attendance, thus
demonstrating that this question is
: taking hold of the people as it never
did before. Radical resolutions were
passed here also, with tremendous
, eclat. No longer can politicians ignore
" this question; no longer can either
political party give it the cold shoul
der with impunity. The spirit of the
' people is at fever heat on this ques
tion, and whichever political party
, fails to take hold of it, that party will
; be defeated in the State.
This is as it should be. The whis
ky party has not only resolved to
.break down our temperance law, but
also to tear down our Sunday Laws,
and all laws which interfere with their
Bo-called personal liberty. Therefore,
if they succeed in the coming election,
' we shall not only have free whisky
and free Sundays, but free lottery
, establishments; free gambling houses;
free dens of prostitution; immorality,
debauchery, licentiousness and rank
atheism, will reign untrammelled
throughout our State. Is this what
our . fair State must come to? Surely
not ! But it will come to this, if the
moral, the virtuous, and the good do
. : not rally in one grand phalanx to the
; cause of temperance and morality.
We have the power to crush the mon
- ster if we will use that power discreet-
ly! ; '
Last night I spoke in the College
: Hall of this University, to more than
three hundred students all the Pro
fessorsand about four hundred peo
ple who live in the city were, there.
For two hours that vast and learned
audience listened with the most mark
ed attention. What a grand opportu-
nity this was to indoctrinate the young
minds in tho cause of temperance ! I
have to speak in the same place to
night again. Deeply do I feel the re
sponsibility of assuming such a posi
tion, but I pray that the "Good Shep
herd" will strengthen and sustain me
in this labor, and that He will sancti
fy all to the happiness of mankind,
and to his glory !
After the lecture last night, I visi
ted, under the very kind invitation of
the President, Dr. Nutt, the large
museum. There I met Professor
, Owen. Ho kindly showed me the va
rious specimens in Natural History,
&c, which had just returned from the
" Vienna exposition. : To me, this was
a most interesting occasion. I found
all the Professors very cordial, courte
ous aud attentive. What a noble
work are these men doing for the
youth of our State ! Oh, what a glo
rious achievement would it be if wo
could only shut up every grog saloon
throughout our State; and instead of
spending the money in , whisky and
lager beer, we could spend it in sup
porting such institutions as this. How
education, civilization, morality and
prosperity would bound forward.
' Why, in ten years we would be the
foremost State in our glorious Union.
To-morrow I speak at Ellotsville
audGossport; the next day at Vinccn
nes, nnd then on to Kvansville to
labor in the celebrated "Pocket" dist
inct for a few days, in some places
where they boast there has; not been a
temperance meeting for more' than
eight years. This surely requires a
little of the strong, moral courage,
which guided and strengthened - the
Reformers" of -'old of the glorious
John Ptm stripe. : - W. B.

Attention is called to the advertise
ment of the Tennesseeans. The Louis
ville Commercial, the Cincinnati En
quirer, Commercial and Gazette, all
speak of their performances in , the
highest terms. The Cincinnati Ga
zette says: "No one can look at these
singers and hear their songs without
being moved, and last night, and every
night they have sung, the audience
have frequently found tears the fittest
expression of their feelings. Go and
hear them.
City ConnelL
- At the regular meeting of City Coun
cil, January 20th, Mr. Roberts offered
a resolution instructing the City As
sessor to list the personal property as
required by the State and county
schedule, and that the Assessor be re
quired to use due dilligence in caus
ing persons to list the full cash value
of all such property owned or held by
them on the first day of January, 1874,
as required by law. .
Mr. Hibberd objected to the resolu
tion, as being out of order. The ob
jection was sustained by the chair, and
the resolution withdrawn. ':
The city printing was awarded to
B. W.' Davis, his being the lowest bid.
The census report of Mr. Braffett
gives the total population of the city
11,020; north of and between Main
street and the railroad, 3,501; north
of railroad to corporate limits, 1,148.
Total, north of Main, 4,&49. South of
Main, 5,355; on Linden Hill, 162; on
Main street, 854. Total, 11,020.
The suburbs, Mr. Braffett thinks,
will give 1,500 more. When the re
port is completed, it will give sex, age,
color, nationality, &c. '
Mr. Hibberd offered the following
Resolved, By the Common Council,
that it is the sense of this Council.
that the present schedule lor listing
the personal property in this city,
when properly understood, is not op
pressive, and under the circumstances
should be cheerfully acquiesced in,
and complied with tor this year.
This resolution was advocated by
Messrs. Hibberd, Conklin, and others,
and opposed by Mr. Dulin and others.
The resolution was adopted by a vote
of six to four.
Ho Confldenee In Him.
Next to Indiana, during the war,
Massachusetts had one of the most
sterling and patriotic of Governors, in
the person of Gov. Andrews, whose
letter to Caleb Cushing, at the break
ing out of hostilities, declining his
proffered services, shows that he knew
the material of which this Cushinq
was composed, when he said:
"Your frequently avowed opinions,
ideas, and sentiments contrary to
those oi Massachusetts, your intimate
social, political, and sympathetic in
tercourse with leading secessionists of
the rebel states, maintained tor years.
and never, unless at this moment, dis
continued, lorbid my hnumg any place
for you in the council or the camp."
The New York Express, which was
a stanch advocate ot l rotection lor
many jears. and down to the time
when it went over to the JJemocrauc
party, says:
"Mr.' Jefferson was the head of the
Republican party, yet could not dic
tate all its measures, for his own party
finally . repealed the embargo, ostab-
lished a navy in ii4, established a
protective tariff and a National Bank
in 1816. under Madison."
The editor ot the Express is surely
not ignorant ot the tact that both Jef
ferson and Madison, personally, as
j well as their party, were earnest advo
cates or a 1'rotective laritr. lhe old
Republicans of the time of Jefferson.
Madison and Monroe were decidedly
in favor of Protection; and it was only
after the division of that party, the
regular organization remaining under
the lead of Clay and Webster, and the
seceders constituting the Democratic
party, with Jackson and Calhoun at
the head, that the "Free-Trade" taint
was visible in American politics. Lai
houn was the cause of this partial de
fection of the Democratic party, Jack
son remaining true to Protection to
the last. The Express, speaking of
I J udge btory, correctly says:
The Democrats were, in fact, a se
cession from tho regular party, and
Story went with such Republican
leaders as Adams and Clay, who re-
i tained the name of the Republican
party, and the followers ot J ackson
and Calhoun in 1828 took the name of
the Democratic party.

Mr. James Wells was nine years
old when his father, in 1797, set
tled upon the farm where Wellsville,
Ohio, now stands. He saw ttio
first steamboat paddle down tho
Ohio in 1811, a period when he was
engaged in carrying pig metal from
New Lisbon to Pittsburg. In 1815
ho purchased flower for $1 31 per
barrel and shipped it to New Or
leans, losing considerable money
in the operation. In 1813 his father

twenty six years of age; but young as
he is, from his own account has had
much experience in tho ways of the
drunkard. Having abandoned those
ways, which were fast leading him
down to the lowest depths of degrada-,
tion, he has he says, determined to de
vote his life and his energies, to the
cause of arresting the flood of intoxi
cation, in which he was so near being
forever lost, and which is making for
us, the name of a nation of drunkards.
Mr. Benson favors entire prohibi
tion, not only in the use, but also in
the manufacture and sale of all intoxi
cating beverages.
His audiance was respectful and at
tentive, but not so large as it should
have been.

Richmond. Ind., January 14. !
That our Western Union telegraph

is nroved by the fact that Will Uowell
ooer itor. aged 19, on the 22d of last
December, went to Kokomo, accom-
nanied bv Annie Shute.aged sweet 16.

even on the telegraph, which hereby
first announces to the citizens ot llich
mond the sub.rosa marriage of these
highlyTespectable and honorably-related
children; to whom we wish a
long life and lots of fun.
. "T-h-a-w," is voted a bad spell by
our ice men, at this present writing!
The legal-tender "reserve," which
is being steadily drawn upon to meet
the requirements of the Treasury, is
but a trifle over half exhausted, in
eluding the heavy purchases of bonds
made in the height ot the panic to re
lieve the market. In the meantime
the revival of business has steadily in
creased the Government receipts, and
correspondingly decreased the drain
on the reserve. 1 here is ample margin
therefore, to carry us into J une, long
before which every one hopes, the
spring increase of revenue will fully
meet the Treasury demands. If then
it is deemed safer to pass the Dawes
bill for a twenty-million loan, provis
ion should be made for speedily retir
ing it, and for not placing it at all if it
should hnally prove unnecessary.
The Republican Party.
lhe xvepublican party shows no
sigus of decay. If its members make
mistakes, they manifest a willingness
to rectify them. It its servants tail
to record their wishes, the masses of
the party quickly make their disappro
bation felt, and the response is prompt
and satisfactory. The salary bill of

1 Not since the closing scenes of the
' great acts of reconstruction has the
Republican party shown its reprcsen
I tative character so strikingly as during
. the last month. If one branch of the
Government makes a mistake another
branch hastens to rectify it; if all err,
the great body of the party the rank
and file asserts its right to judge and
'. its authority to condemn; and the alac
j rity with which the Republican party
officials bow to the dictates of this
great tribunal of the people consti-
tutes to-day, as it has constituted dur
ing its whole history, the secret of its
tenure of power. The rugged vigor,
the quick vitality, and the sustained
purpose of the Republican organiza

i moral and political sentiment of the
1 people are exhibited in bold relief by

membership of 78,675. It would be a very
low estimate to put the number of Granges
now organized at 10,000, and the members
at 1,000,000. ; -
There are in the State of Michigan at
present about 9,000 members of the Order of
Patrons of Husbandry, divided into about
210 local Grange, the average membership
of each being 45. -
W. S. Hanna, State Deputy of Kansas,
writes as follows: "There are now 750
Granges in Kansas, and between twenty
five and thirty thousand members. I have
organized nearly one hundred Granges.
Our law now requires that we admit only
intelligent, practical farmers, of good moral
character, as charter mem tiers. There are
thirty-one Deputies at work in the State
now, and already the Order bas saved tho
farmers of the State thousands of dollars,
and those who are true to its teachings and
principles are well satisfied In every re
spect, as far as my observation has extend
ed in sixteen counties."
Arrangements are now in process of per
fection by which the State agent of Mich!
gan will open warehouses for the accommo
dation of the Patrons of Husbandry. He
will be authorized to sell produce left with
him. and, after deducting a small commis
sion, will be able to return a larger price to
the producer than could be obtained from
the middlemen. He is also to purchase ag
ricultural and domestic machinery from the
manufacturers, from whom a considerable
reduction is expected. The Patrons will
thus receive the implements at wholesale
rates, effecting a saving on some articles of
from rO to 33 per cent. There Is also some
talk of establishing a number of grist mills
and agricultural implement manufactories
in the State, to be under the watch and care
of the Patrons. Altogether, the Patrons are
making considerable progress,' aud at no
distant day will be a power in the Stale.
The sled runners, have got from un
