column from the Ref . H. F. Obhek.
' It breathes ,the fpure spirit of a tem
perance ; reformer a man of God
. and a friend to suffering humanity,
i In his language we would ask " Who
' will'go and do likewise?" Any man
possesses power and influence, if he
; ; will only think so, and make up his
. tnind to make' a good use of it. To
use our influence rightly, requires a
good deal of labor and inconvenience,
i and many there are who do not love
the good cause sufficiently to undergo
' " this labor, although they make pro
' testations of their unceasing attach

'would see your principles triumph,
to imitate this good brother's example.

preceded it, when providing for' the

two hundred years, and yet has al
ways been shamefully and notoriously
violated, and it always will be. We
were struck with' the humanity und
policy of tje 7 ih section of the Indiana
Act. It reads thus :
, ".Sue. 7. 1 A,ny person,. who i. shall,
hv the retailinar of snirituous liauor.
cause the intoxication cf any person,
hhall board,, keep, and, tiike care of
without assistance, safely toi return to
his home; and, on failure to do so. it
kIiuII be lawful for.any other person to
d so, or cause the same to. be' done;
which person i shall, have an "action
againsit such retailer- lor reasonable
Compensation,, for,, such service, and
fifty percent, damages theretm."
f: If it Would not be ur charitable, we
would suspect that some of the mem
bers of the General Assembv had had
a bitter experience on this point, by
being kicked out1 of a .village b'ur
re bm drunk some tiiglt, or that at a
dayj hot far future, when they had but
a single dime left, they might to a
tavern, get drunk, and sponge their
board for a few days. .r It would i cer
tainly be very pleasant for a poor devil,
when out of (change, to bit round a
haV-room till some kind friend invited
him to drink, nd thus secure him
odging and good nursing for the night.
This is' decidedly smart. ' Section 17
provides thati all houses where liquor
is sold in less quantity than a! quart,
without first i btainivga licente, are, und
