The Temperance Declaratians of Presidents. The Western Christian Advocate, has been digging down into its own archives and has resurrected tlie following temperance pronunciu tnento, which It printed August 1-1 ' ISdl, over Btty years ago: "It appears that the Hon. Kd ward C. DetaVan ot South Kails town, N V. and at one time Secre tary of State for New York, hod taken it upon himself to secure the signatures ot the different Presi dents id the Coiled States, that had served during his lifetime, to the following document: ''Being satisfied from observation and experience, as well as from medical testimony, that ardent spir its, as a drink, is not only needless, but hurtful; and that the entire dis use of it would tend to prooiote tho health, tlie virtue and liaooiuoa. of ino community ; we Hereby exprt as our conviction that should tlie clti- mums, anf es pecially all young men, discontinue entlrelv the use of It, they would not only promote their own person al benefit, Inn tlie good of lite coun try and the world. James Madiaon, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, Martin Van tfuren, John Tyler, James K. Polk, Zachary Taylor, Millard Fillmore, Franklin Pierce, James Hiirhauan, Abraham Lincoln." "It is a matter of great regret," says the Western, "that Mr. Dela van hud no successor to secure the signatures of our later Presidents, and thus have an unbroken chain of evidence against the an.h-foe of the human race." We agree to that, especially in view of the fuet that our later Pres idents have seemed so loath to re fer to the subject of temperance in uny wuy. Not a man among them has ever touched the question in a public message, though every man among them has touched upon ques tions rar less important. Mich. Ad vocate.
