Acknowledgments..
( We again have the pleasure of presenting
Mow, further and most decisive testimony
from the friends in faror of the Organ, and
the promotion of the cause. We feel a de
free of gratification which we cannot fully
express, to know that our humble efforts
receive the approbation and support of such
true and tried men men who feel and fully
appreciate the magnitude of the approach
ing conflict between the rum-sellers and
their allies, who seek to desolate this fair
earth with their pestilential business, and
those uncompromising devotees of law es
Hrefy prohibiting the manufacture and traf
fic in alcohol io drinks as a beverage.
1 J. F. Hildreth, Hopewell Dir. No. 596,
ML' Liberty, Ohio, $1, , The wish to file
the Organ, and at the end of the volume
hare it bound and placed in their library.
A good move, and we are pleased to hear
they hare a library.
Wm. Anderson, Cardington, Morrow eo,
0., $3 for Organ. Bro. A. says, the reason
we ha? not heard from him before, is on
account of his absence from home, but will
soon send us a club of ten at least. We
shall look out for it, and no mistake.' If it
was twenty, we would not object, Bro. A.
i David Mercer, Williamsburg, 0., $2 for
Organ. This completes a club of 10 to be
sent to Batesville, Noble county, 0. Bro.
M. writes: "I will endearor to obtain
more, as we love the sound of the Organ,
tt sounds well through these hills and val
leys, and one great advantage it has, it en
tertains and instructs all who will listen to
It." We will play them fifty-two tunes for
one dollar, but we would like to play it to
the tune of five thousand subscribers.
A: A. Stewart, Columbus, 0., $1. Hear
what this whole-souled temperance man
says. We always receive something to en
courage ni from our esteemed Bro: "You
shall hear from me in a few days again. I
intend to make the one hundred subscri
bers up which I promised you last Summer,
just as soon as I return from New York. I
am to leave for that city either next Thurs
day evening or Monday."
T. W. Painter, Weymouth, 0., $4. Br,
P. Is constant in his efforts for the Organ.
, John T. Zombro, Urban, 0., $3.
W. H. Clark, agent for Rio Frio Divi
sion, St. Clairsville, 0., $1. Sorry to hear
ef Bro. C.s sickness, and hope he will soon
regain his health. He says we shall hear
from him again soon.
JohnMullin, Sprinjrboro',0.,$3 for Tem
perance Song Books and Tracts.
W. C. Ferguson, New Holland, Pickaway
co., 0., 4 for Organ.
. A. 0. Elliott, Adamsville, 0., $12 aid 13
new sub. to Organ.
P. Doolittle, Fredericktown, Ohio, 6 for
Organ. Bro. D. writes: "We have had sev
eral elections in Knox county, and although
the democrats have a large majority, yet
the temperance democratic have dropped
their regularly nominated anti-temperance
candidates, and voted for Temperance
whigs, and elected them by large majori
ties. They have set a noble example, one
worthy the imitation of temperance men
everywhere." We say so, too. If our po
litical parties, be they whlgs or democrats,
will not nominate men for offices worthy of
the suffrage of temperance men, let us drop
them, and not sacrifice our principles in so
glorious a cause, merely through party pre
dilections. S. Kennedy, Pomeroy, 0., $2 for Organ
N. Carmichael, Lockland, 0., $13 and 17
new subscribers to Organ. We are In
formed thai a new Division is about being
organised at Lockland. They have the men
there for a good Division. Success attend
them.
H. Carey, Xenia, 0., sends us the follow
ing: "Enclosed yon will find $3 and the
names of 3 new subscribers. Although our
Div. failed to get a premium, I do not in
tend to relax my labors ; and here I would
remark, that the labor experienced in ob
taining subscribers for the Organ is very
light when compared with former times.''
John Gordon, Madisonville, 0 $8.
P. Done, ML Healthy, 0., $3. ! '
B. J. J. Harkins, Duncan's falls, Ohio,
$10. . . . '
Organ has been sent as directed to Dr.
T. B. Hood, Smiley's Corners, Frank Unco.,
0., and we hope to hear from the Dr. at his
tarlieut convenience in the way of a land
some club. .
Roswell Beed, Cleves, 0., 1 new sub. to
Organ. Bro. R. says he will never givo up
the ship. He will continue to send in
names to the Organ as fast as he obtains
them. i
E. S. Close, Springdale P. 0., Ham. co.,
Ohio, $3 for Organ, an addition to the club
from that place.
John W. Walker, Cedarvllle, Ohio, $5 for
Organ. The Bro. says : " You can place
them on the list for this place, already in
your possession. I shall send you some
more in a few days. I have the promise of
some four or five more, and I certainly shall
'keep it before the people.' " I could give
yon the history of a young man, that has
just gone to the world of spirits, from our
neighborhood, through the agency of the
liquor traffic, which Is heart-rending in the
extreme; but I have not time now." We
should like to have had the particular, Bro.
Walker.
John Rattle, R. S., Ashtabula Dir., Ash
tabula, 0., $3. Bro. R. says in his letter:
"I think I shall send more; the sky is grow
ing bright. But while I am writing in this
hall, the bowlings and hootings of some
drunken vagabond is heard all over this
town, and I hope he will keep it up until
our authorities shall be compelled to put a
stop to the selling of that as a beverage
which destroys both soul and body." We
should be pleased to send a large club to
Ashtabula. Perhaps the Organ would aid
in bringing about that 'good time coming.'
John 0. Reed, Mt. Vernon, 0., $2. We
give brother Reed's excellent opinion in
regard to the duties of Temperance men.
He says: "I shall keep sending them as
fast as I can hunt them up, for every new
accession to our ranks, "falls like the gentle
showers on the thirsty earth ;" and if we
can get men to read, we're all right I be
tter the greatest obstacle the advance
ment of our cause. Is the want of informa
tion, and I consider every Son of Temper
ance and Templar as much bound by their
obligation to spread such information as
will lead to the final triumph of our cause,
as they are to abstain from the use of alco
holic beverages themselves. "
J. Chambers, Eaton, 0., $10. Bro. 0. as
sures us that we may confidently look for
more names from Eaton. Hope so. We
had a fine list from there last year.
Deersville, Ohio, $1 for Organ.
James Aigin, Delaware, 0., sends us an
other decidedly interesting letter, this week,
containing $17,00 and 17 new subscribers.
We have no inclination whatever to drop
our correspondence with Bro. A., particu
larly while he is within bounds of Brother
Herbert's labors. Bro. A. writes: "I hare
the pleasure to state to you that the Dila
win House ia a strictly temperance hotel,
kept by Coamtu. b Stouts. I trust that you
will inform your numerous readers of it,
hoping that when any ef them comes to Del
aware, they will not forget to stop with
Cornell k Stults, as they , will find them
gentlemanly landlords, and their house clear
from all alcoholic nuisances. I trust our
temperance men will not forget the House.
Unless Temperance Hotels get the support
of temperance men, they must be closed, or
be turned into rum holes. Last Friday
erening, about fifteen of us went to Rad
nor, and organised a new Division with 18
members. We had the Presbyterian church
to organize in, and among the number was
two ministers. Thanks to Bro. Herbert and
the Organ for this new accession to our Or
der in this county. May God prosper our
brethren in their new and glorious enter,
prise.' , i i
John H. Mercer, Mt Pleasant, Jefferson
co., 0., $30 and 30 new subscribers. - Bro.
M. says: "I forward yon this list with a
fair prospect of a few more soon; Our list
maybe among the last, but we trust it will
not be among the lout. If we do not get
a premium, we shall be content with that
best of all premiums, the consciousness of
baring done something to forward a cause
In which the poor drunksrd and his wife
and children bare such vital interests at
stake. It ia my candid opinion that if the
State would subscribe for twenty thousand
copies of the Organ, and distribute them
among the people, double that amount
would be sared in the State, that is now
worse than wasted. We are working away
here, and do not expect to accomplish any
thing unless we do work. We hare, as the
result of our labors, got 'pretty well clear
of rum and its effects in our midst by
the best of all laws public opinion ; this
is the bssis upon which the Maine law, or
any other law, most rest. Hence, while we
are trying to get the Maine law, it is our
imperative duty to distribute such matter
among the people as will mould their senti
ments in its favor, and thereby render it
efficacious."; ,
, E. Dimmitt, Boston, Clermont co., 0., $2
for Organ. . ,
J. Oldham, Brownsville, 0., 1 sub., for
which we received the cash some time
since. "
H. S. Elliott, Germantown, Ohio, $1 and
1 new subscriber. ': '
Women's State Temperance Con
. vention.
Owing to the crowd of matter on
hands, we were unable to notice last
week, as fully as we wished, the trans
actions of this body, The following
were the presiding officers on the oc
casion: , ' ,
President Mrs. Prof. Cowles.
Vice Presidents Mrs. Bateham,
Mrs. Sheldon, of Columbus; Mrs.
Bronson, of Medina, and Mrs. A. E.
Lewis, of Cincinnati.
Secretaries Mrs. Burnell, of Elyra;
Mrs. Grffith, of Litchfield, and Mrs.
Elizabeth Jones, of Salem.
Among the business of the Con.
vention was the organization of a State
Temperance Society, and the adoption
of a constitution, the election of offi
cers, &c.
A resolution was also adopted re
commending the formation of County
and Township Female Temperance
Societies throughout the State, and
that all such societies become auxiliary
to the State Society.
The following memorial was adopt
ed by the Convention, and seven del
egates appointed to present it to the
General Assembly:
To the Geneal Assembly of the State
of Ohio:
The memorial of the Women's State
Temperance Convention, convened in
Columbus, January 13, 1853, repre
sents, that in view of the many griev
ous evils consequent upon the traffic
in, and habitual use of alcoholic liquors
as a beverage, it is most imperatively
required that some speedy and effect
ual measures be taken to eradicate
those evils ; we, therefore, pray your
honorable body that a law may be en
acted similar in its provisions to the
Maine Liquor Law, which shall be
effectual in suppressing the entire traf
fic in the State of Ohio, except for
mechanical and medical purposes.
; And your memorialists would fur
ther pray that in view of the vital im
portance to the family of' the inebri
ate, and to the successful operations
of the law, that you will incorporate
in the law the humane and liberal pro
vision granting the wife and children
the right to sue the seller of ardent
spirits for the recovery of the value of
money paid by the husband or father j
for the same.!
We also most respectfully urge
your honorable body to consider the
petitions of the people of this State,
which have heretofore been presented,
praying for a prohibitory liquor law
in Ohio.'
We anticipate" much good as the
result of this movement of the philan
thropic women of Ohio. They are
most interested in preserving their sons
and husbands from the blighting ef
fects of the infernal traffic in alcoholic
poisons, and they should loudest raise
their voices to stay the arm of the de-.
stroyer. ' ' :' ' ' ' 1 ' '
In speaking of the Convention the
State Journal says :
"The proceedings in the Represen
tatives' Hall, on Thursday evening,
were decidedly interesting, and at
tracted a very full attendance. ' Tho'
there was not a very strict adherence
to parliamentary rules, yet that is not
by any means a novel sight in that
Hall. The address of Mrs. Jones, of
Salem,, was a finished, able, and elo
quent p'oduction. Its arrangement
was logical, and its rhetoric of a high
order. . Her enunciation was clear,
distinct and graceful. , She made her
self heard to the extremity of the Hall.
Mrs. Griffin's was also a literary ef
fort of a high order. ; Her addross,
though pleasing,1 was not quite so
clear, distinct, and impressive as that
of Mrs. Jones. ".. Mrs. Conner read an
article written by a lady of Morgan.
She has a good voice and distinct ut
terence, so that she was clearly under
stood through the Hall. ' .
As an exhibition of female capacity,
education, and literary taste, the even
ing's entertainment was very pleasing
and satisfactory. All the speakers
agreed that the previous steps in the
Temperance .Reform were failures,
and that their bopes now all centered
in the enactment of the Maine Law by
the Legislature. Several of the mem
bers were in attendance. Their votes,
hereafter, will show what effect this
new appeal made upon their judge
ments. f
Tmfc authorities of Hartford, Ct.,
have prohibited theatrical exhibitions
in that city. '. ' '
