(auglM&.wtd) Wanted! At thi. Office, TWO COMPOSITORS. Tus Temfirahce Miitino at the Baptist Church, last night, was very interesting, and became quite enimated before) its closf. The meeting was addressed by several gentlemen. By resolution the President was instructed to appoint a committee of five, whose duty it should be to nominate candidates for Mayor, Councilmen, and all other city officers. ' It was understood that the names of the committee would be reported by the President at tho meet ing to be held next Tuesday night in the Second Presbyterian Church. The report of the Com tmitlee on nominations is to be made four weeks hence. In the meantime it was resolved to hold regular weekly meeting. Dr. D. T. Morton, the President of the Association, and Mr. J. A. Lennon were requested to addrei the Associa tion at its next meeting. The Association then adjourned, to meet next Tuesday night at the Second Presbyterian Church. In the early part of the evening, the following resolution, offered by Rev. Mr. Phillips, were unanimously adopted : Resolved, 1st. That this society is more fully and firmly periuaded than ever before, of the necessity, magnitude and practicability of the object contemplated in its original organiza tion. 2. That the period has come when the most Active, combined and decisive measure are de manded, in order to secure the entire prohibi tion, by salutary city ordinances, of the manufac ture, t edifying and sale in every quantity as a beverage, of all descriptions of intoxicating li quors. 3. That this society publicly pledges its cor dial and untiring co-operation with all temper ance organizations, and the entire community friendly to the cause, in unceasing exertions to procure, at the approaching city election, the selection, To fill tho various offices under the city government, of such persons ns will enact and enforce in all their detail and rigor, such ordi nances as may be adapted to banish the fell tlemon Intemperance wholly from the commu nity, and absolutely to inhibit, under adequate penal sanctions, the manufacture, preparation and sale, in every form and manner as a beverage, of every description of intoxicating liquors. 4. That this society earoeslly invites and en treats the friends of temperance, good order, and the continued and augmented prosperity of the city, tc rally at the approaching city election to the rescue of our entire population and city from the crushing incubus of strong drink, by placing in the various offices and stations of trust and influence among us, men wha will act on this subject with firmness, fidelity, and entire disregard to tho f rc-wns or smiles of those inter ested in the liquor business, and the perpetuity of the present license system, which has so long proved the fearful and prolific founlatn, here, as everywhere, of bankruptcy, insanity, pau perism, orphantge, debauchery, disease, crime, misery and death. 5. That we recommend forbearance, on the part of the friends of the cause, from harsh, perional denunciation and invective, and by the use of strong arguments, clothed in respectful and appropriate language, prove that, though the sworn enimies of the business, we are the tru est aad kindest friends ef those engaged in it, and their endeared and respected family circles, Air Strings. Where will be the end of mechanical inventions and improvements? Who will believe that a railway car has been con structed and proved, which rests upon air springs?' Mr. Ellsworth state that just before leaving Washington, he signed a patent for a man who proposed to construct springs for cars o that passengers should be able to read or write without any inconvenience. "Of what do you mnke your springs iron?" '-No." "Of woe-ilr"' "iNo ." "Whin then?" "Air." "How? ' "Take a strong metallic cylinder, twelve inches long, ict it in perpendicular; force into this thir teen atmospheres, (that is, by the use of the forcing air pump, make the air in the cylinder thirteen times as dense or heavy as common air,) on the top 'of this put oil, and insert a pisten which shall fill the cylinder, and tins makes the spring. Mr. Ellsworth rode in a car carrying eighty passengers, which is thus con structed, and it answers fully the expectations and promises of the patentee. Uufl'alo Rough notes. A Positive Disclaimer. Some fellow in Nashville, Washington coun'y, not having the fear of the law before his eyes, entered upon the premises of a whisky shop in that place, and wickedly carried off and secreted a portion of the "grocery" stock several bottles and a lot of "Cuba sixes." Strange as it may appear, and to the shame of the goodly village of Nash ville, suspicion fell upon our worthy cotempo rnry or the Nashville Monitor. Hear his indig nant disclaimer: "We have not tho endurance to worry with the subject further than to place this unequivo cal and positive disclaimer on record, that we did not do IT I in other words, thi outraeeeu encroachment upon the rights and property of john robbins, esq., grocery keeper, No. 5, in Piashvuie, was the villainous act and deed or. somebody else! and shall rest confident that in future time the correctness of this daring asser tion will be fully developed." Profanity and Intemperance. At the recent meeting of tne Grand Masonic Lodge, in Indinnnpelis, the following resolutions, reported by Judge Downey, were adopted: Resolved, That the use of profane language is, by this Grand Lodge, declared to be grossly unmasonic, and highly injurious to the character ..C K W ui r reo masonry. Resolved, That, in the opinion of this Grand Lodge, it is highly unmasonic for any member ol the Masonic I ratermty to engage in the manu facture or trallio of ardent spirits for a beverage. Resolved, That it is the duty of all subordi nate lodges under this jurisdiction, to correct the evils of intemperance in all their members as speedily as possible. Important Tempera: o Usee. The Independent Order of Odd Fellows in Pennsylvania, a body numbering 44,000 mem bers, have passed the following resolutions in their Grand Lodge with only eight dissenting votes : Resolved, That any member of a subordinate Lodge, under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of the I. O. O. F., of the State of Penn sylvania, who ihall keep a tippling shop. or. in other words, an unlicensed house for the sale ef intoxicating liquors, in violation of the laws of the State, shall be formally proceeded against, and if found guilty, shall be expelled. Cotton Ropis for Ships. There is a nov elty about the Sovereign of the Seas, that, doubtless, will seen be imitated bv other vussel. The ropes which form the running rigging are oi cotton, winch we understand, i not only ca pable of a tighter twist, but is not likelv to be come deteriorated as hempen cords. After they have been in use, too, for years, they can be sold for nearly as much as the original cost. These ropes are quite as smooth, and run with great rapidity through the blocks. The sails also of this vessel are of cotton, two sets of cot ton sails costing only the sum paid for one set of linen canvass. Enveloper Letters. When letters are en- closed in an enAelope, the address should be in scribed ns well on the letter itself as on the en velope; otherwise the loss of the envelope mav cause grave mistakes and serious confusion or may leave tho letter for an anonymous claimant. ve neara a deceased Chancellor sav that he knew unimportant law case which came very near being lost to the parties ultimately success fully the loss of an envelope, leaving it uncer tain to whom the missive had been addressed.

THK UUSX LAW AND ITI ADVOCATES. The Times of yesterday has the effrontery to say that "not a single paper or mis oiiy nai come out equivocally or unequivocally for or against the Maine liquor law, except the Times." Our readers know how false this declaration is The Atlas, for one, has repeatedly avowed its convictions, that the highest welfare of our city and State requires a prohibitory law. While we make this declaration unequivocally trom a profound conviction of its necessity, we nave no disposition to conceal our belief that, in seme important respects the Maine law needs some modification, in order to its immediate success, and to the permanency of the reform it may effect. We are in no way the organ of the Maine Law leaders; we express nobody's views bat our own; we see and are willing to acknowledge the very grave objections which may lie urged against the proposed law; but at the same time, so great, so growing und so overwhelming are the evils attendant upon the manufacture and sale of alcoholic drinns, and so useless have all other modes of stopping the evil proved, that we are constrained to khv "God speed to a law which in other States has swept paupers from the poor house, left j iils without inmates, re stored domestio peace to the drunkard s lireside, and covered towns and cities with unnumbered blessings. Rather than have a prohibitory law fail in Ohio, we are willing even to forego our convictions of what principle and policy seem to us to require in the details of legislation. Ooject as we may to theoretical defects in tho law, there stand out mall their horrible atrocity murder, assassination, robbery, breaches ef trust, domestic abuse, poverty, wretchedness, and crime of every sort, as the daily effect of the sale of ardent spirits, and every humane anil every patriot io man is compelled to deeide either to defend or oppose the enly lav which, as yet, nas proveu useii competent to destroy these monstrous evil. We are no bigot to the Maine Law. Show us a better way, and one that has any chance to suceeed, and we will give it our hearty auppert. But in some way the traffic is doomed to be put down. The humanity of the State stands pledged for its suppression. The movement is ne mere temperance one. Men of all ways of thinking upon that subject, will unite in a solemn determination that they and their children shall nit be met by temptation at every corner and every turn, that they will not suffer tne further wreack of the best'hopes of parents and friends, that ne more collossal fortune shall be built up on the premature graves of the young and the promising, and that the common mother of every crime which ruins individuals, and burdens down the Mate, shall be banished from society. We regret the position the Times appears te have taken we re gret that it has no better remedy for the confess ed evils of the trade than the moral suasion, whose absolute failure is borne witness to by hundreds upon hundreds of grog-shops in our midst, and we still hope that it may yet be found an earnest advocate of the only treatment which possesses the power effectually to cure the evil. I'm tbanxful that the aun and moon Are both hung up so high, That no presumptuous hand can stretch And pull them from the sky. If they were not I have no donbt But some reforming asa, Would recommend to take them down, And light the world with gas! Coaldn't be Choked Off. The Clinton Courant tells a atory of a rural philosopher, who had somewhat advanced in years without learning much of the mysteries of nature. What knowledge the old gentleman had gleaned was entirely independent of science. He did not know wlieilur a microscope was "something new t'J cat or a new fangled farm ing machine." A young friend, fresh from school, once paid him a visit, aud was very anx ious to enlighten the eld man on the wonders of tho microscope, a specimen of which he carried about him. While the fild philosopher was making a fru- al rnoal in the field at noon, the youth produced microscope and explained its operation. which he illustrated by exhibiting its power upon several bugs and minute atoms of animated mutter on hand. To his surprise, the nged pupil did not manifest much astonishment, and stung by his indifference, he detailed to him how many scores of living creatures he devoured at every mouthful and in each drop which quenched his thirst. At tins ins hearer was sceptical ; to prove the fact, the boy snatched from his hand a chunk of rich cheese which he was then de vouring, and placing it under the magnifier, the muss of wriggling animalcule was triumphantly pointed out. 1 he old man gaznd upon the sight indiffer ently, and at length, with the utmost noncha lance, took another huge bite. "Don t ex claimed the boy, "don't eat it, Uncle Ben ; don't you see era r bee em squirm and wriggle ! "Let em wriggle I said the old philosopher. munching away calmly, "they've got the worst on't ; if they kin stan' it I kin," and he deliber ately finished his meal ! gal 1 his ARRIVALS AX TEX KONSOZ BOTOX, Corner of Slain anil Centra Streets, WM.
