!NW UOr BA , UNNttAT, OCTOBER 1 rl'. UGOIBrBZING DRINKS. OW THE IMBIBUE OP VIRGINIA ARE PATIN*r I STATE DEBT. (Pittsburgh Poet.) Richmond, Va., Sept. 14, 1877.-The Moffet register, or the *'Moffet bell- punch," as the people still insist upon calling it, has now been in operation three days, and as a ipost valuable and extraordinary sourcee of revenue, it is regarded as a de cided success. The average Virginian id now engaged in the patriotic duty of li quidating the State debt to the tintinna bulary music of the little gong in the reg. ister. EXCITEMENT AMONG THE DRINKERS. On Tuesday, the first day of the regise ters, there was quite an excitement among the portion of the community that usually patronise the drinking saloon. As the little black boxes were placed in each bar, fastened by screws to the counter, crowds flocked in and called for drinks just for the very novelty of listening to the tinkling sound of the gong produced by the revola tion of the crank as the barkeeper regis tered each drink. It was cnrious to notice his "straight," "toddy," beer, or jl.-p, would bend forward and iintently watch the operation of the crank and take in the " ting" that gave notice that the tax was paid, and that he had performed his whole ut as a Virginian and a patriot. AN ADVANCE IN PRICES. As predicted, an advance in the charges for malt and alcoholic drinks took place all along the entire line of saloons. Hereto fore, the charge for alcoholic drinks was ten cents, and five cents for malt drinks. The Moffet Register law imposes a tax of wo and a half cents on alcoholic, and a half cent on each malt drink. In order to eet this tax the saloon keepers at oncec :Miad the price of alcoholic bovcragea to lfteen cents, and they overcuame tha d:tli ulty in the case of lag,-r be1.:r by sub'ti uting gins-ee holding n t.uth luss than hose used ;-evious to tie itr.dluction of the registi , and leaving the, prce at Live eats. WhVba two or Ic:-nr slia':ii s are alled for, a rnducti:n r atlised at th, ate of two drinks fur a quarter. .iur for fty cents, and so on; 'but the tipp er who rinks by himself is victimnzed to ' he cx out of two and a half cenos, which is a tlear gain above former profits for tlhe'bar eeper. ABOLITION OF TIE " SLATE.' One of the immediate effects of the reg ater was the abolition ot the credit s3s em by the barkeepers. Howover.willtcg hey. were to risk the loss of their liquors y "charging." they were decidedly un illing to pay the State a tax upon drinks or which they might eventually receive othing. Hence, the traditional "old eore" and the modern " slate" are no longer institutions in the whishey shops of Richbmond. Every man has now to pay as he goes, and the bartender takes good care not to touch the crank for the purpose of registering until he has received his pay in lihe coin or currency of this country. AN INCIDENT. There are hundreds of amusing inci dents consequent upon the advent of the -ew system of raising revenue. One- is orthy of mention here, and in this con ection it must be noted that, singular as t may appear, the saloon keepers are bit erly opposed to the register. -Daring the fternoon of the first day of the new sys em, Hon. R. M. T. Hunter, State Treas rer, dropped into a saloon, and, planting is elbows familiarly upon the counter, -ktd fir a glass of beer. A party seated a the rear, discussing the merits or de erits of the register, narrowly observed he distinguished old gentleman and lie tened attentively for any expression rela ive to the instrument that might escape bim. He sipped it again and eyed the bar an still more intently. Patting down his lass ihe remarked: "You haven't punched.' "I1 I-ow I haven't, Blr. Hunter," said he smiling dispeneer of liquids. "Haven't you got the Mlcffet rc-gister 7" quired the statesman. " Oh, es, ae:r," with a touch of earcarm "1 thought i didtr't hear the bc:l,"' quer lously remarksd Virginia's Treasurer. "Oh, no, Mr. lHutter, you did not," very 4 nmphatically. "Why t" hesitatingly. "Becanse you haven't paid me, Mr. aouter." This produced a laugh at the exptr.se of to distinguished Treasurer and financier, ho, after lumblirg in his pocket, pro aced a douceur and planked it up. Where - pon the barkeeper, with a considerab!e onrish, turned his crank, scunded the ong, and announced, "' another half cent ward paying the debt of Virginia." Mr. Inter beat a hasty retreat. FOPULAR SENTIMENT. F" It is fair to say that public sentiment to- ¶ ay is largely in favor of the Moffet Liquor aw. The custom of one or two of the aloons has slightly decreased within the ast day or two, but not to such an extent is to warrant the idea that the register is e cause. The small advance in the prices es not interfere with regular, or even regular, drinkers. It is only topers of e lowest type who grumble, and to these n be added the class who do not always ave ready cash in their pockets, and who ave been in the habit of having their rinks charged. For these the register is convenient, and hence they condemn it; 1 ct the great majority of the patrons of sa one are heartily in favor of it. Everybody, nluding its opponents, concedes that, as source of revenue, it is one of the beat er devised, and it the law is properly forced there is no doubt that it will entually be one of the most effective. The opposition to the register comes aly from the saloon keepers, who fail to nceal their bitter antagonism toward it. veralof them protested against its intro uction into their saloons; others saw it stened to their counters without a word, at with the most bitter feeling, and still hers-smilingly and gracefully yielded to e inevitable, and received the little boxes ith the tell-tale dials with the reluctant spression, "I'm satisfied if everybody else is. The I x don't come out of my pocket." It is still the intention of the liquor deal re to fight the Moffet law in the courte on I Sground that it is onconstitutional, and, lg in this, to carry the war into the Legislature. Already there are a umber of candidates for that body who e expect to be elected on the ground of their opposition to the Moffet register. WHAT IS EXPECTED. What the register is expected to do is given in the following estimate: Last year the whole amount paid by all the liquor merchants of the State into the Treasury was $187,000. Richmond liquor merchants paid $37,000. Say that a man sells per day sixty drinks of spirituous liquors (tax on same $1.50) or forty drinks spirituous liquors and 100 of malt (tax on I the two 1 50) his tax per annum $1.50x 365 would be $548. Three hundred and fifty dealers averaging that amount would make I a total of $101,800 per annum for Richmond Add to that $20,000 for specific licences and taxes not collectable by the register, and the aggregate would be $211,800. Ordinarily Richmond pays one-fifth of the liquor tax of the State. There is in the case reason to suspect that the law will not be as rigidly enforced elsewhere as in Rich mond, therefore she says we will pay one fourth of the whole amsant, and we have an entire amount for the State of $800,000 per annum. The above estimate is a very low one. The dealer that doesn't sell $8 worth of liquor per day can't keep agoing. The receipts of many are five times this sum. The estimate, therefore, makes liberal, even extravagant, allowance for "leakage ;" for s and stores that do not keep open on Snnda3 s, u tall establinh meoots that do not seli malt liquor,-and lor the reduced tax the retail dealers pay. "Richmnonl, ?ept, 16, 1877.-An insepec tion of the Moffst registers in twenty-four leading- satoonans-up -to-mid-right-yesterda shows a paid tax on alcoholic and malt drinks of about $230 for the four days the rcgia:ets have been in operation." REVENUE TO TIHE STATE. A calculatiiu bated upon this exhibit sl,ows that in the 35t place s wiere liquor is at,ld t`:., r'evenue to the Siato htlm Rich mond wit ild bt about one hundred thou saud dollars p:i: :aliolll, it It lthe State :bonut half a on ilion. 'I'sh will inaute the Moffet regret: i un a p.rn,alrCe.t tSx.payit.g inStitutiro. The barkelepe, are, stilt bittrerly op.r-it d to tie reglter, netwithetard mg th~ fact tIint the tax CIomIs out of tiio c lnum'er, upon whmin they I.ave raised the pricei. iTh:eir ohjecti.,o are that the 5Ih.ff~t law imposes theo :ity of cte, cting the taxes uponu thor, whlth ti u other class cf busi ness men ever are sunl anetoe to, that it occu pies tlIeir ttirlo with ilott compensation, and that it expr,t a their busines to the public. A further loaring as to the legality of the patent for the register will be had in the United States Cticuit Court next month If the barkeepers ate not successful in do feating it, then tite matter will be contested in the State courts, and a vigorous fight will be made against the register in the Legislature when it meets. So far Rich moond is the only city in the commonwealth where the registers have been put in oper ation. It will be some time yet before the State can be supplied, and this general exemption from the liquor tax gives rise to serious complaint in Richmond, where it has to be paid. POLITICS. tCincinnati Telegraph. Politics are necessary because society necessary. Nations exist, and exist by God' will as the means of promoting man's natu ral happiness. To accomplish this it is necessary that the-nation should be govern ed, that its internal affairs and its relations with foreign States should tend to the safety, peace, and prosperity of its citizens. Politics is the science which lays down and applies to particular cases the principles of ethics by which this end is to he attain ed. A nation, if it i' to live and prosper, must be governed j sttly, that is, according to the law of nature and the positive law of God. Mere expediency, it should he remembered in t~ese trying times, as arnle of political action, is unworthy of a gentle man and a statesman, because it is mean nese-because it is sin. The maxim, "Our party, right or wrong," is a detestable, ruinous maxim. We are to stand by our party when It toi rigit, be'caiiei' then justice is on its sidte; bat whlen:, it is wrong, we are to cut loose foutrn it, because tin-u thie devil is its hiader. IIe in no i tine paut, t who abets 'ational injustice; hie is hie couint3's enti:y, because bli rejoices at seeing her elr-.- upon a course which sot(nl er or later w,:l ,hi ug down on he-r guilty head the litgirtlrg ut G )d's just wrath.

Strong in his own good conscience and his God." A farmer wlo wished to invest the accu t mulation of his industry in United States c securitiese, went into a broker's office to pbtain "some five-twenties." The clerk inquired: "What denomination will you have them, sir !" Having never heard that word used except to distiognish sects, the farmer, after a little deliberation, replied : "Well, you may give me a part in Old School Presbyterian, to please the old lady; but give me the heft on't in Free Will Baptist."
