Pending the discussion of the 6th
resolution, the convention adjourned
until 9 o clock to morrow morning.
TnunsDAr, Jan. 6 lb, 1853.
The Convention assembled at the
City Hall, and was called to order by
the President, at 9 o clock, A. JVL.
Prayer by Rev. Mr. Smith, of Mas
Several speeches were made on the
proceedings of yesterday, and in ex
It was announced that Bro. Clark,
of Cincinnati, was present, with Tem
perance tracts, and to receive sub
scriptions for the Organ of Temper
ance Reform.
On motion,
Resolved, That we take the fifth
resolution from the table.
The Convention asked have to
modify the resolution, so as to meet
the amendment proposed last even
ing. Leave was granted. The reso
luiion would then reud as follows :
5. That disclaiming all intention of
forming apolitical party, or interfering
with those already formed, and urging
our friends throughout the State to do
the same, we boldly and solemnly cle
dure, without reference to tho cont-e
quences to political organizations, that
we will vote tor no man tor any leg
islative ofliee, who is not fully com
mitted to the nrmciplcs avowed in
these resolutions.
An interesting, and by fur the most
exciting discussion of the Convention
was had.
Dr. Robert Thompson, of Franklin,
was in favor of some measure of great
efficiency, and thought it important
we should have officers to execute the
law upon whom we could depend, as
well as to make tho law. lie had
been many years engaged in tho con
test,' and was convinced that 'our tail
ure had been iu tho execution of law.
A motion was made and seconded
to amend by striking out tho word
Legislative, and the discussion turned
upon that.
. Rev. Mr. White, of Clark, was in
favor of the amendment. What they
wanted in Snrirgfield was a set of ol
fleers who would execute law, and
even the Maine Law would be of no
avail if they had their present officers.
They had good men and ministers
who were doing all they could, but
their efforts were impotent without
the aid of officers. ' 1 he Latholic
priest in Springfield was making laud
ublo efforts, being a true Maine Law
.man. He.was driving the liquor sell
ers publicly from tho church, after
having given them due notice to quit
tho business.
The President placed Mr. Eli Glover,
of Scioto, in the chair, and made one
of his happiest efforts. He thought
wo should direct our efforts to one
point, the procuring a Legislature
who would pass the Maine Law, and
it would execute itself. He had for
merly some doubts of it, but was con
vinced that if such a law was passed
it could be executed wiih apparent
case, lie had come to tho conclusion
to Rnend a part of the ensuing sum
mer and fall in stumping it through
out the State. It was important to
have harmony, and bo successful at
once ; therefore we had better aim first
at tho single objects of procuring the
passage of a good law, prohibiting the
traffic. The speech was full of humor,
and received with the highest marks
of favcr.
Rey. Dr. Ncvin was in fuvor of the
resolution as modified by the com
mittee, and had no lear that we could
procure such a law as we wanted, and
then we could provide for its being
' On motion,
Resolved, That tho speakers be
limited to five minutes. .
After several speeches pro and ccn
lies. Mr. 1 nomas, ol Muskingum
" moved to amend by striking out1 any
legislative office," and inserting for
any office involving the enactment
and execution of a law or prohibi
Hon "
" Rev. Mr. tfaylordV'of - Columbus,
spoke to the original resolution. He
wanted no amendment. The great
point was to' procure the passage of a
1 Tir i (i . ...
jaw. , io snouiu not iniugio iu puny
politics, and tho amendments were
only calculated to break down the ac
tion of the mends of the cause.
The first amendment to strike out
the word Legislative was on leave
withdrawn, and the sneaking turned
directly oa'tho amendment of Rev.
Mr. ihomas, '.-.-.
S. S. Ooi, of Muskingum, rose and
spoke1 in favor of the amendment.
Ila thought it was the only motion that
would promote harmony, lor both ends
of the party could meet. Mr. Jones,
of Pickaway, called his attention to
the exact wording of the amendment,
when he at once claimed to have mis
understood it, and was opposed to it.
and would have his remarks applied
against it. All we wanted was to di
rect the law- making power, and the
rest would fol'ow.
Mr. Carrington, of Franklin, thought
the Maine Law would be all sufficient,
and with its peculiar features it would
enforce itself better than any former
Mr. Kimball, of Medina, was in favor
of the resolution as the committee
modified it. What we wanted was
general action at the Convention, and
they might tuke such special action in
each county as they pleased. We
were placing ourselves m a position
which could not be sustained by the
1 em perance men throughout the State,
if we voted for the amendment. We
were placing on our backs a burden
we might not he able to carry, and by
so doing injure the cause.
Kev. ilr. Ihomas said he had pro
posed the amendment, because he
thought it would produce harmony in
the Convention, lie was one of those
who would not vote for any man who
was not in favor of a prohibitory law,
but he was willing not to require the
Convention, to pledge themselves so
far as this ; therefore, he proposed to
have them say they slfould only ap
ply the text to those officers who had
tho making and execution of the law.
We must talk plain, and bo deter
mined if we would accomplish any
thing, lie read in his bible, of a
woman who gained her cause from a
Judge who feared not God, ncr re
garded man ; we could follow her ex
ample to profit.
T. I). Jones, of Fairfield, was op
posed to anything that tended to the
formation of a third party. lie was
assured that men would net give up
their political prelerences more than
to vote for men to make the kind cf a
law which we wanted in the State.
He knew that his views were opposed
to those of tho mover of the amend
ment, and it might be to a majority of
the delegates present, but it Was that
to which we would have to come be
fore we could be successful.
O'.her speakers were on the floor
beside these reported, among wlom
were Messrs. Emerson, of Wayne,
Kreiden, of Fairfield ; at the close of
whose speech, Mr. Addison, of Cuya
h.'gn, moved the previous question,
which was seconded properly. The
President decided that it cut off the
amendment of Rev. Mr. Thomas, and
the Convention sustained his decision.
The fifth resolution was then pass
ed by a large majority, as it was modi
fied by the committee,
i Tho remaining resolutions then
passed in regular order as below, with
very little or no dissent, and without
debate. Between the passage of the
seventh and eighth, a collection was
taken up to defray the expenses of the
G. That we will not be induced by
the alienation of friends, or the hos
tilities of enemies, by partial and tem
porary defeat, to desert our standard
until the shout of triumph goes up
from every dwelling within tho bound
aries of our beloved State.
7. That tho state of our cause de
mands a special effort among our Ger
man fellow-citizens, and that we ought
to have a German Temperance paper,
and one or more German lecturers, to
scatter the lights of truth among that
large and interesting class of our pop
ulation, and that the State Executive
Committee adopt such measures as
will secure the end contemplated by
this resolution.
8. That a State vigilance and Exe
cutive Committee of thirteen be ap
pointed, whoso duty shall be to confer
with similar committees appointed in
the several counties, and devise and
carry out measures to secure the elce
tion of such men to the next General
Assembly, as are known to be friends
of the prohibiting law.
9. That the friends of Temperance
in each county be earnestly invited' to
organize, and appoint an Executive
Committee ol three, and immediately
report the names to the htate Com
mittee. ' . ;
10. That the Stato Committee bo
authorized and requested to exercise
and solicit contributions, for the pur
pose of employing popular speaker;
-to canvass this State, and meet other
contingent expenses'; and that they be
required to report through the Tem
perance press, quaiterly, the amount
of monies received, arid the purposes
for which the same was disbursed,
and report euch other matters as may
be of general interest, touching the
objects of their appoiniment. i ,
; 1 1. That a general and systematic
support of the .Temperance press in
Ohio, is indispensable to success, I
That we tender to Dr. Charles
Jeweft,, of Massachusetts, an earnest
invitation to visit our State and aid us
in our struggle. - -
13. That we have viewed with pain-
ful anxiety and solicitude, thoindifTer-)
enco manifested by" a part of; Un
christian Church to the special claims,
of this holy cause, and that we earnest-,
ly invite a more hearty interest in th.
prayers and co-operative efforts of the
Christian ministry.

On motion, 1
Resolved, unanimously. That the.

the President, for the able, kind, and
conciliatory manner in which he has
discharged his duty,
The President acknowledged the
kindness, and complimented the mem1
bcrs of the Convention on their goo
order, during the excitement, and he
could look upon it as a prophecy of
their future unanimity. He was of
the opinion that he could hardljj! es

rose and said that he was-informed
that in Meijs county, but ten legal
voters had refused to sign petitions
for the Maine law. That the county
had been canvassed by paid agents of
tho Sons of Temperance, of whom
there were ten Divisions, and all in'a
state of prosperity. On motion,
Resolved, That Meigs be acknowl
edged tho banner comty by acclama
tion. Three cheers were thuri given
for Meigs county. " j
Tho Convention was pronounced
adjourned sine die.
From T. W. Painter, Weymouth,
Medina co., O., 914 for new volume
of Organ. Bro. P. says he is deter
mined that the friends of Temperance
in his vicinity shall patronize their
own press the one which their honor
stands pledged to sustain in prefer
ence to foreign journals. Ho is one
amongst a few who hao been led to
see and realize the importance of this
duty. We thank him for bis interest
in behalf of the Organ. . '. '
From David Robbins, Forest Home,
Oglaise co., O., we attend to vour re-
quest. Bre. R. sajs, that intemper
ance and its. twin sister profanity have
gained an ascendency of the aged, the
middle aged, and tho young, In his
village, and prays for the Lord of the
harvest to send them laborers. Now,
Bro., there is none more called upon
to labor than yourself. Get up a club
of ten or more for the Organ, and let
tho day star of virtuous intelligence
shed forth its brilliant rays in your be
nighted region, and the people will
soon be led to see their enslaved and
miserable condition, and will fall into
the ranks of the truly free, and peace,
virtue, and gladness will reign in ye1''
From Christian Wyand, Washing
ton co., Md., $1 for Organ. We hope,
Bro., our new volume, which will ap
pear after the issue of one more No.,
will meet with your kind approbation,
that we may have the club you prom
ise us in that case. -.

Mahoning co., 0., $3 for Organ. .
From C. L. Kelley, Washington,
O., per J. B. Antram, $5 for Tracts.
From Thos, II. Whitmore, Deer
field, 0.; we sent the paper and are
sorry it did not reach yott. We hope
this one will be received in duo tiine.'j
From L. Reding, Newark, 0., $S4
for Organ, Bro. R. writes that "he"
has tried his best to get a larger club
for us, but the people complain of not
having money to spare; yet let an
animal show or circus come along, and
the dimes are raised instnnler." This
is generally the case. Now, if these
animal-showmen .were to turn their
lions and tigers out upon their , de
fenseless children, and they saw them
fifing victims to their ferocity, we
venture to say that they would be will
ing and able to Rpend money, if it
would banish those beasts from their
midst, and save their children. Yet
a far more virulent enemy is let loose
upon them, one . that destrays the
soul with the body they see their
children and their neighbors' children
f illing victims to it, but are unable to
sj end a dollar for a paper that will
warn them against these lurking w
pert, who would, under the guise of
friendship, extort from them their
time, money, health, intellect, life,
and soul, and then chant their fiendish
exultations over their bleeding, cadav
erous victims. The Organ is designed
to direct the young into the path which
leads to virtue and usefulness. Do
not give them up, Bro., till you get
the Organ introduced among them.
Bro. Rrobert Calder, Troy, Ohio,
writes: " If I see any chance of get
ting any subscribers for the Organ, I
will willingly comply with your re
quest to act as agent j but there are
a great many here who have the name
of temperance men, but whore is the
temperance spirit gone? The cause is
at a very low ebb here." We are
sorry to hear this, Bro., and herewith
send you, nt our expense, a package
of Cary's Tracts, which you will
please distribute among the people
there, and if these do not wake them
up, we fear it is the sleep of death,
morally, that has stolen upon them.
We once had a fine club from your
vicinity, for a temperance paper, and
it can be so again. By way of apol
ogy we would say, in answer your in
quiry, that the mistake mentioned in
your letler occurred accidentally by
our clerk in making up the mail. You
are ri.ht.

Prospects in Cincinnati.
Bito. Clark : To one who has not
been in your city during the recent
Temperance excitement, growing out
of the labors of our devoted Bro.
Williams, the present iispect of this
great movement here is as unexpected
as cheering. The impression has been
general throughout tho State, that
Cincinnati was almost-hopelessly in
volved in tho rum traffic, and its le
gitimate results intemperance and
crimo. Put ha ing recently heard of
the very great amount ol good accom
plished by the efforts of Bio. Williams
and others, I am happy to be able to
say, that evidences ot these results
th cken all around us. On Sunday
last, I heard Carey and others upon
the wharf, and was no little surprised
not only to see the immense multitude
then assembled, but to witness the
universal good order and attention of
the listening thousands. Bro. Carey
made one of his ablest efforts, and
with what effect, was clearly evinced
by the sea of hands uplifted in favor
of that most righteous enactment
the Maine Law. How encouraging to
the friends of this measuro is the
thought, that while the judges of our
courts, looking rather to technical
quibbles than the greatness of justice,
are pronouncing aguinst it, the people
who can reform, not only laws, but
their administrators, are growing more
and more earnest every day in its fa
vor. " There is a power behind the
throne," and soon or late the popular
will shall be obeyed.
The spirit of inquiry abroad, not
only in this city, but in every part of
the State, betokens no good to the
hated rum traffic. Its fate at the bar
of public opinion is not doubtful.
Everywhere the witnesses of its evil
deeds are being multiplied ; and not
long, we believe, will an outraged and
injured people tamely submit to its
gross wrongs. The timidity of our
Legislators, and the decisions of our
courts, may retard the progress of
the great movement now making for
the suppression of this traffic. But
gathering strength of this delay, the
moral sentiment of our community
will, ere long, rush down upon it liko
a mighty avalanche of truth, and
sweep from our fair land the last
vostrgc of this gigantic wrong.
Tuos. II. Cummings.
Cincinnati, Jan. 11th, 1853.
New Orleans, Dec. 20, '52.
T. F. Cakt. Esq. P. M. W. P
Dear Sir and Brother: The time' for
our first engagement with the enemy
draws near. This day week, the here
tofore undisputed reign, of Old Red
Eye, is to be called in' question; and
on that duy, the New Orleans miracle
will bo consummated bv a note taken
on License or no License, to drinking
houses and shop- 1 do not anticipate
success now, athough it is deserved ;
but the question is before our citizens
on its merits, ana it they will only take
the trouble to vote, we shall have an
astonishing array of No License tick
ets. , . , .
It would be impossible to lay before
you even, in a condensed form, the
thousand details of this warfare; suf
fice it that our forces stand exactly
where they do, and have been brought
there over the nsuul difficulties inher
ent and external. '
On Monday next, we will "drag
the' struggling savage into day," and
although he will probably on that oc
casion, get a respite, his doom is
sealed., for we have a thousand hun
ters in the field of New Orleans who
have sworn his death, and sooner or
later he must full. The question is
no longer one of fact, it is im.ply one
of time. When our time come for
complete triumph.'our champion, the
" Southern Organ," shall play a note
of Hallelujah, that shall reverberate.'
over the whole South; and in this con
nection I would say that our Organ is
meeting with the most flattering suc
cess. Its excellent subscription list is
daily receiving accessions, and there
is no doubt of its continuing to be an
invincible warrior in the Temperanca
army. It has already in the Public
Reform League movement done yeo
man service, and' made its mark in
many a place on the rough hide of the
'Murker in the village places." It
has reuched a seventh number only,
yet our Order is beginning to feel its
influences, for we have applications
now in the Grand office, for the found
ing of two, and the resuscitation of
three Subordinate Divisions, con
sequent upon the exhortations of the
" Organ." We have a big battle to
fight, but the more glorious victory to
"achieve in Louisiana; and with our
Order and our paper, we are bound to
do it in the shortest possible time.
Bro. McG. thinks in five years, but I
dare not be so sanguine.
I have received your tract and have
circulated it continually as it deserves.
Its argument is irrefutable and its de
duc'ions well taken. If the thing was
to be settled immediately by reason
ard sound argument, the rum-mills
of Ohio would not stand the first fire,
but you have many actual existing ob
stacles to overcome as well as our
selves, and our hope is that we may
be all ultimately successful.
Our Grand Division has in press a
pamphlet on "Intemperance in New
Orleans," a copy of which I will for
ward when issued.
With best wishes for your prosper
ity, I am sincerely yours in L. P. '
and F. Edward Booth,
P. G. V. P., of La.

Rutland, O., Jan. 3, 1863.
Bro. Clark: The good cause "goes
bravely on," in this Division of the
sent of war. On last Wednesday, tho
29ih, we had a positive demonstration
of the interest the people take in this
glorious reform.
At an early hour, (notwithstanding
the unfavorable season of the year,)
according to previous appointment,
the Universalist Church was filled to
overflowing with a iLtelligent and
attentive an audience as is often seen.
Well they were not long kept in
suspense, for soon the pulpit was oc
cupied by only five ministers of the
Gospel, of different denominations, all
ready as Brothers in a common cause,
to do battle against a common enemy.
You see by this array of preachers,
we have broken in on the church, so
that opposition will cease from that
Four ministers, now belong to New
Lima Division. Well, after listening
to two truly appropriate discourses,
an intermission of thirty minutes was
had. And here the ladies, as ever
mindful of our wants, had served
on the spot a dinner that I will not at
tempt to describe; it would take an
abler pen than mine to do justice to
it, or the ladies who provided it; suf
fice to say, that after four hundred or
more had been satisfied, abundance
was left. But the thirty minutes soon
expired, and we were again organ
ized. The enclosed preamble and reso
lutions were brought before the meet
ing, and adopted without a dissenting
The fact is, last spring a petition
was drawn up and signed by thirty or
forty leading citizens, and sent to the
department, and no attention paid to
it, hence this action.
The. speakers then entertained the
audience till a late hour, and judging
from the attention paid to the'speak
ers, much good was done. But one
thing is certain, although King Alco
hol never had much hold on the af
fections of this community, yet the
last tie that bound any of them to him
is well nigh broken; and Maine Law
or na, his authority, must soon entire
ly cease in this county.
New Lima Division has in the last
quarter initiated over forty members,
and are still onward. ,
Let Temperance men know eTery
where, that Rutland has enlisted dur
ing this war, and have declaredthat
war a war of extermination; and only,
give us a. little more "grape,'' Bro.
Clark Itrid we will not cease our war
cry, while there is one stone left on
the top of another in any throne of
Bacchus in this bright land of ours.
Enclosed find a small item of the
fruits of our zeal, in shape of4en
dollars, for which please send your
valuable Organ as per list below.
Promises are of no arail.if not ful
filled, so I will make none, but we will
see. ' Yours in the cause,
