It that Joes not prove that the Miitouri Le. gislature had the right to insert the clauie in our charter, giving1 the City Council the power to prohibit the traffio in liquor within the city limits, I stand ready to confess that I do not un aerstanc the English language. Mr. Justice McLean said : . " If the foreign article be injurious to health or the morals of the community, a Stale may, fro the exercise of that great and comprehensive police power wtiion lies at the foundation or iti prosperity, prohibit the sale of it." (5 How erd,W2.) And in regard to the destruction of propcr.y, he said : "The acknowledged police power of a State extends orten to the destruction of property A nuisance may be abated. Evervthine Dreiu. dicial to the health ot morals of a city may be removed. Merchandise from a port where a contagious disease prevails, being liable to communicate disease, may be excluded ; end in extreme cases, it may be thrown into the sea. Now be kind enough to understand me. I do not quote this in advocacy of the Maine Liquor Law, but to show that the Missouri Legislature, so far from exceeding its power, has fallen short of its full excroise. The following quotation seems, in very plain terms, to settle any difficulty that may bo sup posea 10 arise under me mate Lonstituiton. 1 lie mere right to license appears to carry with it a right to prohibit also. Mr. Justice Catron said : "I admit as inevitable, that if the State has the power of restraint by licenses to any extent, he has the discretionary power to jude of its limit, and may go tlio length of prohibiting it altogether. If such be its policy." I have already made these remarks too lengthy, but I cannot avoid adding a few words more. We have noticed tlio ruin, destruction nd death daily occurring under sanction of law. We have aeen that the license law is writ tea in blood ; that law, linked hand in hand with rftinrdcr end crime, where it linno-a nne aan for murder it kills a hundred more. With orrow the friends of temperance have beheld the ravages of intemperance, and have tried to tens the fearful torrent. They first reasoned with the drunkard ; they implored him, by every consideration of character, home, family and friends, to pause and consider. They called upon the moderate drinker, and warned him of the precipice upon which he was treading ; and then with pain saw him, recklessly and heed lessly, and with fanatical desperation, rush into poverty, then to disgrace, and IImmm to the drunkard's grave. They saw nil tlus day after day, and year after year, without remission or intermission. They thoroughly but vuinly tried moral suasion. At last they appealed to the Legislature to stay thia Niagara o! woes that io pouring upon our heads. They gave us a prohibitory elauso in our charter. Shall we not use UP 3" The ail is too late for our paper to-day. ABOTAU AT XHX XONBOI HOUR, UfMi mt Mala aitft Centre ttmU, WM. SHOOT, Proprietor. TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1853.

The Footpath and Highway; or, WANDERINGS of sn American in Gieat Brilain, in 1S1 and 'hi. By Reniauiin Morean. Tbia volume embodies the observations of the author, made during eignt montns wandering, as a correspondent lor American journals t ana as ne iraveiea roucb on foot, differs essentially from those on the same coun tries, by other writers. New Themes for the Protestant Clergy; CREEDS without Charity, Theology without Hu manity. and Protestantism without Christianity wih Notes bv the Editor on the Literature of Charity, Population, Pauperism, Political Economy, and Pro testantism. The treat question which the boos: dis cusses is, whether Ihe Church of Ibis age is what the primitive rjourcn waa, and w hether Christians both pastors and people are doing their duty. Our author believes not. and, to our mind, he has made out a strong ease.
