As the Grand Division meets at Cirleville on the nird Wedahy, the 20M day of Oc tober, (one week before tlie usual time), it is very desirable and important that the quar terly returns, due September 30lh, 1852, be sent to the office of the G. S. promptly. They should all be in by the 13th of Octo ber, in order that the 0. S. can have time to arrange and adjust his accounts, as will as the accounts of the several Subordinate Divisions. It is hoped that the Subordinate Divisions will attend to thin matter promptly, anil thereby confer a great favor upon this ofliee. In L. 1'. and F- A. M. SCOTT, O. S. Dayton 0. August 20, 15','.

In addition to ad vertising in many of the principal lit erary journals m the United riintcs and Englund, the committee have sent special notices to many of the prominent writers. We sincerely hope that a satisfactory work will be pre pared, and we assure the Order, every wnere, mat when such a w ork is pre sented, there shall bono delay in get ting it ready for use. We would urg all temperance papers in the country, to call the attention again, of literary iJicn and women to this important subject. Those who Lave written, should not delay forwarding their manuscripts to one of the Committee. To Correspondents. Our friend .Sellers, of the Olive Branch, need not fear ''intrusion." We will be delighted to hear from him often. We .shall comply with hid refine-!. Receipts. Our receipts, for the past two weeks, have been so limited, that we have determined not to publish them until wo receive enough lo make a re spectable show say one-fotirih of a column in length. In the two past weeks, we have only received enough to make about four line.'.: We hope our brethren will bestir themselves for our advantage. There can be no ex cuse offered on account of "short crops," "hard times." Ac., ilS the harvest is past, and the yield is abundant. JtSTTwo distinguished Kentuck ians Hen Hardin and Ex-Governor Chambers have recently deceased. The former died at Bardstown on the 2 1th inst.; the latter at Paris, Hour bon county, Ky., on the 21st. "national Woman's Right's . ' ' Convention." The "Corsan League," gives a de tailed account of a great Convention of women, recently held at Syracuse, at which Mrs. Lucretia Mott pre sided. . . ' Many eloquent addresses were made by the feminine gender," evincing tal ent for the forum. 1 i- , The following resolutions reported by Gerrit Smith, who was one of the business committeecontain the sub stance of what these ladies seem to be aiming at : 1 . "Resolved, That t':e demand of Wo man is not for privileges, nor favor, nor employments, nor honors, but for niGUTs. "Resolved, That the rightsof human beings to their own persons, their own earnings and property, and to partici pate in the choice ot the civil rulers are rights which belong as naturally and absolutely and fully to Woman as to Man. "Resolved, That we beseech Woma never to consent to hold any of these great sacreiHfh(s in obeynnce ; and never to consent to exchango any ot them for bribes and privileges, or fa vors and flatteries, however alluring and seductive." They are determined to exercise the right of sufferage, and claim to be eli gible to the various civil offices in tlie gift of the sovert igvs. Wc fiink this movement will not! result in any advantage either to those engaged in it, or any body else. To woman is committed the mental and moral training of the rising genera tions, and if she is well educated, and does her duly to those under her care, there is no danger of oppression, and there will be no necessity of her voting at elections. A woman who cannot influence her son or husband to vote right, lias no business at the polls her self, and if she does exercise her in fluence at home, there certainly is no occasion for her todeposite Iter ballots. That woman has been oppressed, and uini sue noes not now enjoy lo ttien ' full extent, a'l her rights we admit. Justin proportion to the triumphs of the Christian religion has been and wiil be her disinlhndlment. When the principles of the gospel shall pre vail, then will woman be in deed and in truth free; but wo doubt, whether, in iho Millcmium, she will ever Hi' civil unices, or vote for those who do itis all twaddle, to insist that woman's oppressions is the result of her beiiic denied the privileges of voting and holding ollice. The evils of society, are often falsely attributed to bad gov ernment; the real seat of disease, is in the heart. This fountain must be pu rilied, and the oppressions and out rages and wrongs, with which earth is filled, will vanish away. We give an extract from the speech of an Ohio lady as a specimen of what was said : Jane Elizabeth Jones, of Ohio, wish ed to make a speech, because she wish ou to identity liersell with ibis great movement. But she did not under stand the (jiiestion, and would only display her ignorance to this audience. She thought it best for such to be si lent, as there were so nianv better qualified to speak. She was glad she lived in this age where progress was advancing so rapidly. Shu was one of those woman who tall; little about Woman's Rights, but she took her rights and said nothing about it. (Applause.) She had occupied mtl- pits nil around where she lived, lien cured not about taking their ri"hts but objected to their boasting about i She demanded those rights which man was most unwilling to grant, which if granted, the citadel would surrender at discretion. She wanted the risht to vote ; she wanted to vote and be voted for. (Applause.) "fen assert ed this right as evidence of their hu inanity ; and in denying it to us, they deny our numanuy. w e claim our franchise as a right, and shall occupy it with no pledges, no conditions. When we exercise our right to vote we will make our pledges, and not be' fore. Suppose most of us do not want to vote, is that any argument for re fusii)'' the right to those who do 1 (Hear, hear.) Wc want the right to nronertv. Common law jrives the husband on marriage all the wife's personal property. She wanted the right to held property and all the rights man has. We the women' have got to lake our rights. Men can't do it for us. The laws do not hinder us from engaging as merchants. Who of all that attend Woman's Rights' Conventions has yet appren ticed her daughter, to a jeweler, wheel- right, or to any of the mediumo ai U. Men will no complain of your taking your rights, but of your mating t noise about it. She Lai now to i what she wanted, and wanted to know what tho rest wanted. (Loud ap plause.) -'.. Accursed Drink. ' 4. J. 6., twenty-five years ago, was a promising, intelligent, . active young man in Cincinnati, Ho married an accomplished and beautiful ; young lady, the daughter rt a then promin ent politician in Hamilton county. No youthful pair ever commenced life with brighter prospects. He entered upon mercantile business, and it was predicted that he would soon be at the head of his profession. - or sev- eral years the fondest anticipations of himself and friends were fully realized. Like other youngmen, he indulged hi . JXho Question must be met. - . . - - - i Politicians affect to regard the niove- mentsof temperance men for the Maine Law with indifference if not contempt. Whatever may be the result to any of the organized parties In our country, the great question of legal enactment ok the subject of the liquor traffic must ba met fairly and squarely. The tiino is near at hand - when there can be no dodging. Thousands regard this sub ject as paramount in importance to the success of whiggery or democracy, and party skackles are daily getting looser. The pure and good of all parties are beginning to recognize the fact that humanity has claims upon them which cannot be discharged by following the lead of cunning parti- zans. " In some instances whole com' niunities are pervaded wiih this senti ment, and. political conventions are yielding to its pressure.

A few years later, and his busincs convention in Allegheny county, Pa was entrusted to others, and bers . . most of his time in the coffee-house. Later still, he was insolvent, and a drunkard. He removed with his wife and interesting family to a dilapidated cabin in the country. After years of hardships, sufferings, privations and abuse, the heart-broken wife ap plied for and procured a divorce from her abandoned husband. .' Lower and lower he descended in the , scale of degradation, and finally died not long since in the Cincinnati hospital, and his whisky-rotted carcass was deposi ted in potter's-field. His amiable, lovely, broken-hoarted wife, toiled night and day to get bread for her dependent family, until her strong frame bowed under the weight of toil and suffering, and she too sleeps in a grave unmarked by a single stone.

How many of these arrests are at tributable to the grog shop system we canuot certainly ascertain, but there can be no doubt that at least four-fifths of them are directly trace- ible to this prolific source of evil. Ol the number, 142 were arrested for disorderly conduct," partially intox icated, of course for " lighting,' 59. Who is inclined to fight unless excited by liquor?

If the grog-shops were closed up these records of outrage would almost entirely disappear. The Keystone State. The friends of Temperance in Penn sylvania, are tired of petitioning po litical demagogues, for an efficient law ftgainst the Liquor business, and have determined to take the matter into their own hands. We have received a letter the past week, from our friend and co-laborer in the cause, Bro. SeU lers, Editor of the Olive Branch, to gether, with a copy of the printed pledge, which is being circulated for signatures. It reads as follows : "We the citizens, voters of County, do hereby pledge ourselves not to vote, at the coming election for any candidate for the two Houses of Representatives who is not previously pledged to vote for, and use his in fluence in fuvor of tlie passage of a law prohibiting the manufacturing and sale of Intoxicating Liquors." That is right, "put the animal through." Nothing i3 wanting but concert of action and a unity of pur- New Jersey State Convention. The New Jersey State Temperance Convention met at Trenton, on the 22d, instead of the 15th ult. There was a grand procession, with music and banners, which passed through tho principal streets. A committee was appointed to draft resolutions, of which Mr. Frelinghuy sen was Chairman ; also a committee to receive funds to aid in the distribu tion of Temperance tracts. Three thousand dollars was raised to aid in circulating Temperance tracts and in carrying on the campaign. The Committee on Resolutions re ported a series, which were adopted in favor of prohibiting the sale of li quors, and opposed to a separate po litical party, but recommending the nomination of Temperance men, re gardless of party. The attendance was very large, and much spirit was displayed. There were about one thousand del egates present. JT Ncal Dow, writing to the N. York Tribune, says that every Sena tor elect in Maine, with three-fourths of the members of the House, are sup porters of the Maine Liquor Law. XW It is stated that the result of Jenny Lind's visit to this country was a profit of 9302,000 to Miss' Lind, and 1300,000 to Barnum. 1 ', 1 following resolution was passed by a large' majority: 'Resolved, That the candidates for Senate and House of Representatives nominated by this convention, be and they hereby are instructed to exert themselves to the utmost of their abil ities, to secure the passage of a pro hibitory liquor law, similar to the one known as the Maine law." Similar conventions have expressed themselves in a like manncr.Jn other parts of the country, and if temper ance men are true to their principles, it will not be long before the office seekers of all parties will be compell ed 'face the music." When the present presidential can vass shall have passed by, some States will be found moving on this subject, that have hitherto been exempt from" tlie annoyance of lemperanee fanati cism in political struggles. The re sults of the struggle in Maine will give fresh courage to the wavering, doubt- ! ' 1-11 t ing, unucciueu temperance men elsewhere. Every effort was made there to draw tho party lines closely 1 J .1. - p -.v p I . , J uuu i notice inc launiuito losesiglil ol this vexatious question; but it would not do, and the ylorious law is still to bless thai State. It has been trium phaptly sustained, and no effort will be made for the next two years to re peal it. If the legislature of Ohio do nothing at their adiourncd session. there will be a "shaking among the dry doncs" next year, when these representatives present themselves to their constiiuenls for a re-election. The political parties may as well know now that they will be split into frag ments, if they postpone action on this vital subject. In Indiana temperance will be min gled with politics to a considerable ex tent this fall so in Pennsylvania, so in New York. Lu Indiana the candidates for Gov ernor have been catechised, but noth ing very satisfactory has been obtain ed. Both are temperance men in the abstract. The whig candidate we be lieve exerted himself last winter, to secure an and liquor law, and thUfact in connection with his known views, on the subject of the veto, areaguar- ranty that he will give his sanction to any good law that may be passed. The democratic candidato is person' ally opposed to the Maine law, but whether he would suffer his private opinions to control his decision incase tho law was presented for Li3signa ture,, we very much doubt. If lit would, of one thing we are quite con fident, his message would be hispo litical winding sheet, and we do not think he feels prepared for his grave clothes. He has some ambition and sense enough to know that it would be death to his aspirations to resist such a measure. In Ohio thanks to the framers of the Constitution and to the people who sanctioned it, Governor Wood has no power to resist the enactment of any law. If we depended for "aid and comfort," in this emergency, on the Executive of Ohio we should Lave a poor dependence, forLc is well known to be in principle and in practice, es pecially in practice, against the tem perance reform. We do not despair of getting a law at the hands of our present Legislature, and in the mean time wo exhort our friends everywhere to send up in November an expression of their will. Let us have large county conven tions and pass strong resolutions and lorward them to the Capitol. The Right Way. It is said that Bros. Pavatt and Os borne, two of the Electors for Presi dent m Tennessee, ono on the Whig, and the other on tho Democratic side, are canvassing the State together. They speak alternably in the day time for their respective party candidates, and in tha evening both make speeches in favor of total abstinence. They agree perfectly in their views on the Temperance question. They know that both parties need a purer atmos phere, and are determined to save their State from the blighting curse of Intemperance. What a contrast with those politicians,' who emulate each other in treating the people to secure votes for their parties. Verily there is a good time coming. "Kentucky New Era." This journal now reaches its sub scribers weekly, instead of semi monthly, as heretofore. It is pub lished under the direction of the Grand Division, at the low, very lirw price of one dollar. Bro. Eginton, glorious fellow, knows how to get up a first rate paper, and if the brethren rally to his support, and furnish him with the "sinews of war" he will make the rummies tremble before two years, We do hope that Temperance men have regard enough to their own self interests to multiply subscribers in definitely. It must have a long pay ing list to meet expenses. If any man reads it one year, and does not acknowledge that he has re ceived three times the worth of his money, he would complain if the I'ra was furnished for nothing. Kentucky Is moving in the right direction. great mass convention is proposed at Lexington on Friday the 22d of Octo ber. All are invited who desire that measures should at once be taken to rid the State of drunkard makers. If one tenth of the noble hearted Ken tuckians who want and desire a Maine Law, respond to the call, there "will not be room enough" in Lexington to receive them. We wish ourltailroad was done. We would send them "greeting," a small delegation from this side of the river. We would, any how, if it was not for the meeting of our Grand Di vision on the 20th, at Circleville. Smith & Nixon'i Hall. The enterprising owners of this Hall, are determined to make it supe- rior in accommodations to any in the West. It has lately undergone a com plete and thorough repairing, and is now decidedly the ' most magnificent Hall in the West, besides being tha best adapted for the purposes intend ed. The Hall is commodious and well ventilated. The seats have all been numbered and re-arranged, num bering 812 on tlie first floor. In ad dition to this, the Dress Circle con tains between 300 and 400 'seats also numbered ; making, in all, near ly 1 200 comfortable and eligible scats, giving each person an abundance of room; though by crowding a little, be tween 1600 and 1700 can bo accom modated. The scats in this Hall, are cane-seat arm chairs, 1 9 by 20 inches wide, fastened together in rows of 4, 5 and 9. The floor at the- entrance, is on a level with the side-walk on 4th street, but rises on a curve from the center to the back of the room mak- g all the seats equally eligible. It will be opened to the public this even- g, and wo advise all our readers that can, to give it a visit. A Remarkable Man. At a Temperance meeting held in Alabama, about six years ago, Colonel Lemanouski, who had leen twenty- throe years in the armies of Napoleon Bonaparte, addressed the meeting. He arose before the audience, tall, erect, and vigorous, with a glow of health upon his cheek, and said : "You see before you a man seventy years oiti. i nave tougnt two hund red battles, have fourteen wounds on my body, have lived thirty days on lorse-flesh, with the bark of trees for my bread, snow and ice for my drink, the canopy of heaven for my covering, without stockings or shoes on my feet, and only a few rags of clothing. In the deserts of Egypt I have marched for days with a burning sun upon my naked head ; feet blistered in the scorching sand, and with eyes, nostrils, and mouth filled with dust, and with a thirst so tormenting that I have open ed tho veins of my arms and sucked my own blood ! Do you ask how 1 survived all these horrors 1 I answer, that, under the providence of God, I owe my preservation, my health, my vigor, to this fact, that I never drank a drop of spirituous liquor in my life ! And, continued he, "iJaron Larry, chief of the medical staff of the French army, has stated as a fact, that the 6,000 survivors, who safely returned from fcgypt, were all ot those men who abstained from ardent spirits." Darin the Drcsent vcr niu aw churcbw bare been erected within six niilei ol iioiton. Conviction and Sentence for Cutting Telegraph Wires. At a court held in Marlboro' dis trict, S. C, on the 14th inst., Moses Knight was found guilty of cutting the telegraph wires of the lino between Columbia in that State, and Raleigh N. C, and sentenced to receive thirty nine lashes on the bare back, publicly to leave the district in ten days, and each and every time lie is caught in the district to receive thirty-nine more lashes, without further trial. There is yet an other to be tried. English News. "Uncle Tom's Cabin," has an un precedented run in England. The Fishery excitement has blown over.

The Dollar Weekly Times. Tfiis most excellent family newspa per, has reached the 13th number of the new volume. It is, without a doubt, the very best, as well as the largest and cheapest, paper published whether in the East or West. The Publisher is determined to keep up the interest of the paper, believing that he will be ultimately rewarded with the largest list of subscribers of any Dollar Weekly in the world. We commend it to our readers as a paper every way worthy their patronage. Terms $1 per annum in advance. Address C. W, Stabbuck, Publisher, Cincinnati, O. Enlargement. Our co-laborer, Bro. Gorman, of tho 'Spirit of (lie Age," Raleigh, N. C, has lately enlarged his paper, clothed it in an entire new dress, and mads many other improvements. It is a most excellent advocate of the cause, and Bro. Gorman deserves all the pa tronage that the temperance public of North Carolina can bestow upon him. We judge from this fact alone, that the cause of temperance is in a pros perous condition in that State. 05" Has our friend, Samuel P. Drake, the editor of the pot-house Organ, up in Portsmouth, seen the re turns from the State of Maine? If he has not, we advise him to do so. He can then speak more knowingly upon temperance matters. Probably he belongs to that class of individuals, who advocate the doctrine, that " ig norance is bliss." Almost any one would bo led to such a conclusion, af ter reading his paper. Mrs. Swisshelm declares "that the coil of the Boa Constructor would make a better girdle for a young wo man's waist than the arm of a drunk en husband." We think that there are but too many who will agree with her. Mrs, Catharine Sinclair baa made an en. gsgemeat at Niblo'i theatre, N. Y., where ahe will aoon appear, with Mr. Vandenhoff, w newplar.
