On the contrary, we sheul J feel re
joiced that bo many are found faith
ful to their vows. Since our last meet
ing some seven or eight Divisions have
gone down, but asjnany new ones have
come forward -to take their places.
Charters have been issued as-follows :
No. Locitloa. - ' Sit of CaarUr.
133 Alliens co., Juno 1, 1853.
648 Washington co. " SI,
649 Union eo. . Aug. 6, .
150 Monro co. 10, "
651 Laurence Co. " 30, -
652 Meigaeo, 8ept.28,'
Besides the above, an application for
a Division at Pleasant Hill, in Athens
county, was forwarded to tho G. 8.,
but owing to some failure in the mails,
did not come to hand until Monday
morning last, but not in time to be
issued. Bro. -J. Jl. Williams informs
the G. S. that he organized a new
Division, and Darned it New Baltimore
No. 603, but does not state precisely
its locality.
Most of these New Divisions have
been reported organized, and some of
them have gone into active operation.
And it is worthy of remark, that all
the Divisions chartered during the last
eighteen months, with one or two
i a it.! it
exceptions, are m a uuunsuuig euuur
Tho.. pnnlinntiniia and Dftners ner-
taining thereto are on file, and are
respectfully submitted.
In view of the fact that the N. D.,
at its recent session in Richmond, took
incipient action, looking -forward to
the collection of all debts due to the
various O. Divisions, and that this G
D. stands indebted to the IN. u. over
five hundred dollars, it may be well
for this Division to endeavor to devise
some means by which that Indebted
ness may be liquidated. " The debt
must be paid, and the sooner the
means are raised the better.
New Lima Division No. 504, having
by a calamitous fire, met with a seri
ous loss in the destruction ol her Hall,
with all the fixtures, made application
for a new charter, books, &c , to re
place those destroyed, the undersig ned,
under the circumstances, deemed the
application reasonable, as well as pro
per, and complied with the request,
and forwarded the brethren of New
Lima a new charter, fcc, without
Under the resolution of the last ses
sion of this G. D., most of the Divis
ions have reported the name of a bro
ther chosen by the Division, to act as
L. U. W. r. for he ensuing year,
This will greatly facilitate intercourse
between this office and the subordin
ate Divisions, besides being attended
with happy results to the Divisions
since each one will be acting under
Deputy of its own choice.
For a statement of the receipts and
expenditures for the last semi annual
term ending bept. oOth, 185s, see pa
vers hereunto attached, marked A.
It will be seen that there has been a
considerable falling off in the amount
of receipts for the past, six months
There has, however, been a still iur
ther reduction in the expenditures,
The pledge given by the undersigned
in his last report, that the expenses
including postage, should not exceed
$50, has been redeemed the two
amounts not exceeding that sum. And
although the receipts are much less
yet all the current expenses have been
paid, besides ninety dollars of old
debts, (on the Mitchell note),' and a
surplus on hand of $75 03. :
One year's experience as G. S. has
fully satisfied the undersigned, that
the affairs of the Order in this State,
may be manuged successfully, on a
scale of expenditure much less than in
vears cone by. The flood-tide of
success, however, which attended the
Order when first introduced into our
State running up In a short period to
20,000 members, carried with it a cor
responding larg$ idea of money ex
penditure, and all experience tenche:
how difficult it is io contract and cir
cumscribe the outlay of cash, espe
cially where the rcponsibility is gen
ral and not particular.
By strict economy, and taking care
io contract no new debit, the Order wu
be able to weather the storm,' and in
the end come out, as if by fire,' free
from debt, and with renewed strength
and vijror. For such a result let us
labor let us toil on toil ever.

Pursuant to action of the G. D. at
to last Session, the Cadets of Tem
perance met in Convention in Colum
bus, at the lime designated, and pro
ceeded to organize themselves into an
ndependent body. Bro. H. S. Elliott

It is a matter of congratulation, that
the Grand Section as now organized,
bids fair to meet with abundant suc
cess. As informed, there are now
some twenty-five Sections in success
ful operation.. They have a paper,
the "Ohio Cadet," published under the
auspices of one of the Sections of Cin
cinnati, devoted to the interests of the
Order, as well as to the cause of Tem
perance generally. The paper has a
good circulation, and is edited with
ability and tact. It-should be placed
n the hands of all tho youth in cur
State, and it is to be hoped that every
" Son " will feel it his duty to aid our
young brethren in the noble work to
which they have devoted themselves
in conclusion, uroiners, permit me
to say to you that the approaching
year will become or grout icponsibil
ity to us as JSons of Temperance.
Within that period the great question,
"Shall we have the Maine Law Ui Ohio
or not ?" will have to be discussed and
determined. This work will require
clear heads, bravo hands ana hearts.
In the fore part of that battle, the
Sons of Temperance must take their
place, lhe, time. for' action is upon
us. Aro we prepared (or the work ?
Let each one examine himself, count
the cost, and tenter vigorously upon
the contest. We cannot shrink from
the responsibility that is upon us, and
we ought not to do so if we could. Our
mission is to do good ; let us go for
ward hi its accomplishment. Our ap
peal is in behalf of suffering, degraded
humanity. For this we invoke - the
strong arm of legislation. Shall it be
said we err in this Invocation ? ' That
we should, rely upon moral suasion,
and not seek the power of law to stay
the monster intemperance ? Nay,
verily, it it 19 right and proper to use
tho power ot law to prevent and pun
ish crime, surely it is right and proper
to use the same power to prevent and
remove the cause of crime 1 Shall it
be called wisdom to bar the door after

'Organ of Temperance Eeform."
Omca G.
. '' Nov.' I, 1052.
At the annual session of the Gnm
Division of Ohio, held at Cincinna
in October, 1851, a Publishing; Com
mittce was appointed to devise a pi
upon which to entablish a paper, to 1
devoted to the cause 6f 'lenipcranw
and to be an Organ for our Order :
Ohio. This action was found neeir
sary, in consequence of the recent su--pension
of the " Western Fountain,'
which had ceased to exist for want
adequate support. This Commitl
composed of Bros. S. F. Cary, John
TtVbiUell and Caleb Clark, at on
enter. u upoji the discharge of t
duty assigned. A Prospectus and i
Circular were issued, asking the a
of the members of our Order, and of
the friends 1 of Temperance, ' in t! "
establishing of .a new pap-r, to 1
JkiA Sflrgan of .Ternr.
form." Bro. Clark assumed the so.'i;
responsibility of publishing the paper,
not as a member of the G. D., but as
an individual ; thus taking from the
G. D. all responsibility in the matter ;
while Bros. Cary and WHrrwErx un
dertook the editorial department, ren
dering their services gratuitously, The
Committee deemed it proper to enjjat'e
to supply the unexpired subscriptions
to the .' Western Fountain," of whioh
there were about eight hundred. They
were in no wise bound to do this, as
the " Western Fountain " was also an
individual concern, of which the 0.
D. had no responsibility. In answer
to the Circular ftnd Prospectus, about
four hundred subscriptions were re
ceived. With this meagre number,
and with the onerous burthen aboc
alluded to on his hands, to cripple his
exertions, besides the impression which
existed in all sections of the State, tha,
a temperance paper could not bo sua
tainc l in Cincinnati, Bro. Clark begat
the publication of the paper. " Aboti
forty numbers of the paper have beet
issued, and regularly mailed to tht
subscribers. The subscription list ot'
the paper has increased from the foul
hundred with which it started, to
twenty-five hundred. The subscribers
to the " Western Fountain " have also
been supplied, with the exception of! ..
i., u 5.i .i. .:. ' "
subscriptions ; and the readers of the
paper can bear testimony, that it has
been an ablo and faithful exponent of
temperance principles. The paper is
no w placed upon a firm basis, aw ply
sustaining itself in a pecuniary point
of view, and fast winning the confi
dence of the friends of teiuerance,
and overcoming the prejudices which
existed when it came into being. But
this is not sufficient. The subscrip
tion list of the paper should be as many
thousands as it is now hundreds, and
with proper exertions upon the part of
the tnends pf temperance in Ohio, it
can be brought up to that number.
It is Bro. Clark's design to enlarge
and very materially improve the paper,
so soon as the subscription list will
justl y this step. The paper should
also pay enough to employ an editor
at an adequate salary. Heretofore the
services of the editors have been gra
tuitously rendered. We have no right
to ask Brother Cart,' or any other
Brother, to devote his time end talents
in editing a paper devoted to the cause
of temperance, and to the promotion
of the interests of our.Order, without
rendering adequate compensation
therefor. The paper would be much
more effective in promoting the caue
of temperance, if it were enlarged, and
if an editor could be employed who
would devote his time and attention
to it.
, I trust, brethren, these considera
tions alono will be sufficient to move
you into exerting yourselves to in
crease tho subscription list of the
Organ. But there are important con
siderations to which I wish briefly to
call your attention. The probability
is, that during the ensuing year, the
question of the Maine Liquor Law mTi
be prominently before the people of
this State. This question is raised,
and will have to be met and decided
before another year shall have rolled
around. What means are better cat
culated to discuss this question, than
a well conducted Temperance Organ?
dj means oi it, lacts and arguments
can be brought to the view of the
people, which will have an important
bearing on this subject. It is your
duty, occupying as you do the front
ranks of the advocatea of the Maine
Law, to exert yourselves in preparing
the publio mind for a right decision of
this important question, and for en
forcing the law after it shall have been
passed. - .s
Besides this, it is alkimportant to
the ultimate success of the great work
- in which we aro engaged, that light
' should, bo shed upon the subject of
Temperance; that it should be con
stantly agitated, as well tlrat we who
aro professed friends of the cause may
be well posted up in the matter; as
that facts, statistics and arguments
may be strewn broad-cast over the
Stle.that the "stains of black jnUjm-
may be washed from our
I appeal to" you, then,' brethren, to
lid in the circulation of this journal.
I appeal to you by every considera
tion, to step forward at this crises,
ind, by the contribution of your mite,
aid in the all-important work of car
rying the temperance reformation to a
iccessful and triumphant issue. .

- To Headers and Correspondents.
j TVe perhaps owe an apology to our
leaders for again occupying our columns
With that portion ot the proceedings ol the
Grand, Division of Ohio which we gave
ftist week: but from a consideration ot
flie paramount importance of this grand
dhapter in the history of human progress,
4e have concluded that it would not be
up acceptable to our numerous readers,
ti give the 'whole proceedings in one num
ber, for the sake of the greater conve
nience to those who may wish to circu
late among their friends this flattering
record of the ripening fruits of the inces
sant exertions of the early champions ol
the Temperance -Reformation.
We most respectfully, also, ask the
indulgence of our correspondents for a
few weeks, until we shall have disposed
of a press of important editorial and se
lected articles piepared and now partly
in type. Their kind favors shall, in due

Drtmkenness at Elections.
JSever since we have been a voter
have we witnessed as much beastly
intoxication, as at tho late) Presidential
Section. 1 Every sober-minded, re
flecting friend of his . country, must
have been impressed with the neces
sit-y of doing something to save his
country from , the blighting curse of
intemperance. At the ' precinct at
which wo voted, there were about 350
votes cast, and the drunkenness, pro
faniiy, obscenity and fighting would
have disgraced a kennel of dogs. The
election was held at a grog-shop,
and while 'here were many respect
able men of both parties, who con
ducted themselves like men and citi
zens of a Christian country, the mass
wsts a seething, boiling mass of cor
ruption, entirely incapable of conduct
ing themselves as gentlemen. ; Yet
these drunken vagabonds are sov
re'gns, and hold the destiny of this
great republic in their hands. We
heard men of all parties say, as they
witnessed the disgraceful spectacle,
that henceforward and forever they
would know no party in elections until
thef liquor shops were closed up
" VTe must have the Maine Law, or
we are ruined," was the involuntary
exclamation ot several, ana many
sighed and exhibited feelings that
their lips did not utter. Why must
decent men be compelled to enter one
of the? Vile dens of iniquity to deposit
his U.ut? ' . Could not the men who
designate the place of election, select
a more respectable and suitable spot
for freemeu to assemble, than a filthy
grog-shop? - W e, regard it as an un
pardonable outrage, to subject decent
men to the necessity of enuffing the
fumes and listening to the profane
babblings of a bar-room.
i The friends of Temperance in this
State are beginning to awake to the
necessity of legal enactment against
the liquor traffic. '. . ....
A great Staid Convention is to be
held oq the 24th of this month, at Sel
in'tT, ) consider the subject, and adopt
Sikh measures as may be necessary to
cripple and exterminate the, bloody
traffic in tho State. 1 '
j The Editor has had a pressing in
vitation to be present, but the low
water and the inaccessability of the
place, will prevent his com pjying with
the rc'i" .r .
Not long since, one of these hyenas
was shot down in a cemetery near
the city, while exhuming a dead body.
This case has excited very little sen
sation, and the sexton who did th?
deed has received very little censure.
Mo8t.of persons feel that if it Was not
'justiJiaUe homicide,' that it may be
regarded as "excusable homicide."
The narrow house of the dead is un
der the protection of the law, and even
the demands of science must not ruth
lessly invade it. Is there, a more
loathsome wretch than he who would
disturb the repose of the dead for the
sake of a few dollars, and drag the
corpse to the dissecting room of the
medical student ? Yes, reader, in our
opinion there are men, compared with
whom,' the resurrectionist is a saint
They who for a few paltry dimes will
paralyze the nerves, prostrate the
strength, extinguish the reason, and
scar the conscience of the living, and
after a few days of unutterable suffer-
ing, hand over the victim of their av
arice' to the sexton, are far more inex
cusable. -Let the resurrectionist, hy
ena-like, tear open the graves and
throw out the decaying bodies of those
we love, but stay the arm of him who
strikes down the living on every side
of us. It matters littlo what becomes
of the inanimate dust when the spirit
has departed, although we dislike that
it should be made to serve the cupid
ity of the midnight thief but 1t more
concerns ua that the breathing body
and tho undying soul of the living
should be unassaulted by a business
that fills tho grave yard with prema
ture mortality, and peoples hell with
Asylum for Inebriates.
Horace Mann, in writing an article
in favor of the Maine Law, thus speaks
of the philanthropic plan of erecting
an Asylum for the treatment of Inebri
ates, i
" Some philanthropists, among
whom was that excellent man, Doctor
Woodward, lute superintendent of the
Worcester Hospital, who wrote a series
of essays on the subject, for the press,
have proposed the erection of a Hos
pital tor Inebriates, like a hospital for
the insane', where the victims of Intemperance-
may be sequestered from the
walks of men, until the fire which al
cohol has kindled in their bodies can
be quenched. While honoring the
be'nevolenco of this suggestion, 1 have
never seen reason to adopt it. Why
incur vast expenditure for machinery
to inject disease into the body politic,
and then- repeat the expenditure to ap
ply a remedy? ' Instead of the unnat
ural process of turning sober men in
to drunkards, at an immense outlay of
human happiness and wealth, and then
attempting to turn the drunkards back
again into sober men, by another out
lay, why not keep the sober men so
ber in the first instance, and thus save
all cost of machinery, partial losses in
all cases, and total loss in many I 1
would not contract a consumption,
even if ah experimenter could prescribe
a certain instead of Ins uncertain nos
trums for my cure. I would not melt
a purse of gold and mingle it with
dross, even on the mint-master's as
surance that he would refine it and
coin it for circulation t-.gain. And for
better reasons than these, I would not
consent to forfeit years of happiness,
and incur loathsome degradation and
consuming pain, even though God him
self would assure me by one miracle
that he would restore me by another.
" My friends, the only true and
proper Asylum for Inebriates has been
constructed. It was constructed in
the year 1350, in the State of Maine.
Neat Dow was the builder, a nobler
architect than Sir Christopher Wren,
or those who poised the dome of St.
Peter's in tho upper air. It is the
grandest asylum ever erected or con
ceived ; for its base embraces the whole
territorial area of the State ; its walls
are- co-extensive with the boundaries
of the State, and it has a dome no less
lofty and resplendent than the arch of
heaven above. Wherever the means
of inebriation are excluded, there is
the true Asylum for Inebriates. ' Mas
sachuseits and Rhode Island have
spread the protecting arches of this
roof over their soil. The youthful
territory of Minnesota has already done
the same, like a young man resolved
to be strong and great, and therefore
taking the early vow that promises
wisdom and length of days. I trust
that the 'Excelsior' state of New York
is about to follow their example, and
to become an empire state in morals
as well as in power; and then, from
the ocean to the great lakes, water and
not fire shall be the nourisher of man,
and joy and not wo the companion of
his household."; : s
It is gratifying beyond expression
to see such men as Horace: Mann,
Thkodorb Fkelinouotben, and oth'
ers. taking hold of Uiia subject, and
fully and fearlessly avowing the honest
convictions of their mind. ' There are
thousands of politicians who. in their
heart of hearts acknowledge the rea
sonableness and. the necessity of the .
Maine Law, but who for thelsake of
popular applause unito in the whining
cant about abridging liberty and vio
lating the Constitution, destroying the'
moral reform, &c. .Horrace Ma.nn
in the further discussion of the subject
in the same article, says: . .. ,
"It is terrible to inflict capital pun
ishment on a fellow creature, but mere ,
pastime to inflict it on a gin barrel.
The ever-living beauty and excellence
of the Maine Law is, that it is preven
tion instead of cure, that it kills the
fiend before ie gets into the man, in
stead of waiting tilt we have to kill '
the man in order to expel the fiend."
Historical Scraps. - '
Since the organization of the Grand
Division of the Laws of Temperance '
in Ohio, there have been sixteen per
sons eligltble to seats in the National "
Division, having filled one of the two
highest offices in the Grand Division. J
. Of this number six have been initiated
into the National Division, viz.: Foster,
Vaughan, Cary, Forbus, McKinney,
and Olds.
Two are dead, Biggar and Mathiot.
Two others are no longer members
of the Order, viz.: Vaughan and For
bus. "
But one out of the sixteen has made
shipwreck of his faith and violated
his pledge.
Twelve are still members of the
Grand Division, and were elected Re
presentatives to the National Division
at the late Session of the Grand
Division, viz.: Foster, Cary, Gregory,
McKinney, Old, Allison, Findlay,
Kimball, Swayne, Young, Cumtnings,
and Williams.
Of the sixteen, seven were Metho
dists, three Episcopalians, five Pres
byterians, and one not a professor of
