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
And in regard to the destruction of propcr.y,
he said :
"The acknowledged police power of a State

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do not quote this in advocacy of the Maine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

New Themes for the Protestant Clergy;
CREEDS without Charity, Theology without Hu

wih Notes bv the Editor on the Literature of Charity,

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. He tn inks there is abundant room for refprin at
the present time, and that it is needod almost as much

This atove possesses advantages over common
stoves, in thickness of the plate, and improve
ments in draft.
This atove waa patented September, 1852,
and wherever they have been used, have given
general satisfaction. Thia atove weighs some
Forty pounds more to the number than any other
stove ever brought to this city. The platea in
them are from one-half to three-fourths of aa
inch in thickness. No. 1 weighs over 200
pounds. We warrant them all againat fires.
These atoves have a Patent Hot Air Flue, hich
carries the heat that is generated under the fire
plate down the front part of the atove, between
two thick plates to the draft at the bottom of
the etove. C W. BRYAN,
