. point we have two remarks to make.
First. If this result should be brought
about, 'the Whigs wilt have nobody to
blame " but themselves. ' Led them
come out, not as a party) but as men,
and maintain the right, and they have
nothing " to fear.1'1 Second.-If the
reign of the Whig party In Kentucky,
depends for' its cominuance upon the
perpetuation of the liquor traffic, it, is
high lime that 'the offices should
change jiands. 'Here in Ohio some
f of . thq ' leading Democratic' jour
(; nals are singing the son' of the
' Whigs ' in Kentucky,' but reflecting
men of all parties must see,' that the
' charge' are all gammon on both sides
v of the fiver.
, ; Those who are Wst deeply inter
j ested in the movement, and, the most
r actively engaged in it, do not stop, to
'consider, ! or care how any political
' party Is to be effected by the result-' If
it would bury, beyond the hope o 'a
resurection, the party to which we 'are
attached,' to secure'an efficient! "liqudr
prohibition act,it would notstaken our
efforts' a whit." We say, down with the
liquor1 traffic and every thing1 else
