The nominations did not suit the liquor sellers. They bolted en mass, and formed a ticket, taking their candidates from those who had been before their respective conventions as candidates for nomina tion, and were there defeated. Their candidates for Mayor and Marshal, each trampled upon their own political party. There never was a greater in dignity offered to political associates, than these men then threw in the teeth of Whigs and Democrats. Now, by the underhanded wire pulling of the partizans who, directly or indirectly, favor tho intemperance and gambling hells of our city, the same men are again forced forward for the support of those they so recently spit upon for the sake of the rum votes. Mr. English has the so called Whig nomi nation for' Mayor, and Mr. Stephens the, so called Democratic nomination for Marshal. Those who have pulled the wires which have elevated these patriots to the saddle once more, have, for the sake of .blinding the eyes of the ; unsuspecting, nominated , party men to play second fiddle to these po litical mountebanks. , They, . that is the wire-pullers, as we verily believe, do not design to vote for either Bryan, on . the one side, or Brown on the other. English and Stephens are the candidates to be elected, and the others are to be used as cat's paws. So says rumor, with very good backing. " ! - Citizens of Columbus, Democrats, Whigs, Free Boilers, Temperance men, friends of order, and sustainers of peace, awake from, your' lethargy! A leading rum seller, who stood at the polls the entire day at the last spring election, and who is now in the field seeking an office, said, after the closing pf the polls ba that occasion, accompanied with. oaths and cursiritr. " Gentlemen, we are in ihe majority, tho government belongs to -usj and if you aon'i like our ruio, just move out P'. Fellow Citijens, are vou pre pared to take lip your march! If you have not Jndependenqe to com put and manifest your adhesion Vto the right, then the sooner you walk' the plank pointed out by this rum-seller, the better. . No sane man doubts the fact that in this city we are now under the rule of the grog shops. Will you remain so? If not, come out at once and take a stand on the side of riirht. Nominate your own men; men known as worthy and ' respectable citizens; meu wno, u elected, win eniorce good and wholesome law;; who are far above the suspicion of any undue or improper influence. Now is the day, and now the hour.' To be beaten in a good cause Is far more praiseworthy than to sneakingly submit to vile in dignities, without an attempt at self defense.1 J; "'' ' ' ' ' We close by asking two questions. Was the spectacle ever before pre sented, of men beine pressed upon political parties by party nominations, who had but the year before repudia ted the acts of their own political friends, and basely come out in oddo- sition to the regular nominations -rr Whigs and Democrats of Columbus, is there a deeper 'degradation, poiitl-' cally speaking, than that to which you are now called upon to subscribe! " . . i I i''-t .!-! ... For the Organ. ' Mt. Libkrtt; JIarch, 24 th,' 1853. ; Mr. Editor : Intemperance appears to , have'.reached.'its climax. The storm that haa raged so fearfully, car rying destruction and devastation into every, part, of pur country, appears to be abating. in the village from which write, containing some thirty or forty families, two months ago we had three doggeries; no we have none. One Of, the landlords having joined "the' Sons, one more is being superseded by a Son, and the other one has quit the traffic. ," 7 '': : ,:::'!';"; v ! A week or two since, the citizens of this place petitioned our landlords to quit their traffic in liquors, warning them at the same time, that unless a cessation followed the reception of the notice, the law which is against them would be enforced. . Upon this point the people are decided. If there is1 any protection in the., law,' they are bound to have it. On presenting the petition to one of the landlords, he ex claimed,' "A great county this, where a man can't eat and drink what he d-r-d pleases. 1 Talk about liberty, do you! d d great liberty this, sunt I had a d d sight rather live under a king. I would, surely, I would." That's hot half so monarchical as this." What ideas some men have of liberty." They think they have the right to do wrong as well as right. They forget that we are social beings, and depend upon each other for protection; and that the minority have no right to follow a busi ness that in the opinion , of a majority is injurious to community. ' ., Protection is the object of gove.ip-' ment. Supposing each individual act ed independent of the rest, being gov erned by laws of his own make, and responsible to no authority but ; hisf own, what would be the result? An archy and bloodshed would be the order of the day. But,' says one, have not I the right to sell what I please, if another sees proper to ; buy it? ' I answer no. Look at the statutes reg ulating the sale of arsenic, damaged meat, wheat, flour, glandered horses, bogus money, &o. .You are not al lowed to sell some of these at all; and others only on certain conditions. I ask, then, if we have the right to re strict the sale of certain articles of food, have we not the same privilege with certain articles of drink? - Most ' certainly;? We hrrer nm right io isell ' to another 'an article' calculated irr its nature w injure, the ipurcbas(er., ., B,ut I am wandering from the points 1 said intemperance 'had 'reached"5 its climax. ' I have' only Wcite yVu'to fact to preve my assertion true. : The ciiange wrought In public' opinion alone, is , sufficient to prpVe it. '..But a few years i ago and at every log-roll--ing, house-raising, harvesting, and in almost every1 family," U was consid ered an indispensable., article'.' I , The reverse of this is almost universally true, now, At almost eyery Temper ance meeting, resolutions, declaring that they will vote for no man for Rep resentative or Senator1, nless pledged to try to procure a law; similar in its provisions to the Maine law, is proof of this. Look at the Temperance ' alfi- ances being formed; see, tha number of petitions being sent to our so called legislators, and yott Will see that it has not only reached its climax, but ,that it has passed and left it far in the rear. The people have become alarmed at the evils resulting from intemperance, : Rumsucking office-seekers must be left at home, and sober, honest, Mi.tsi Law, men sent ja their, plae. " And here I recollect that it is rumored here,' that one of th nominees of the Whig ticket for Sfate'flicers,. " bcihg in Cincuinaii, ia a wholesale' liquor dealer. Is this true or not? , Ifs6, I will.warn him that I, and not I alone, but hundreds of the Whig party,, will be into his affections, (as Cuffee said When be choked .h? possum td eath) about election iims, j, .uwi r ' t .
