temperance men of Lawrence.

Bro. G. T. Myers, Plymouth, 0., $5 for
Campaign Tracts. The brother says, they
have formed an Alliance, but that it is an

When Santa Anna was on his way
to Mexico he called at Havana and had
a secret consultation with the Captain
General of Cuba, and since then it is
announced that he has applied to
Spain for troops to aid in suppressing
a filbuster expedition from the United
States. Puttinsr all the facts toorthp.r
relative to Santa Anna's movements,
there is ground for supposing an alli
ance to l)e on foot between Mexico
and Spain, intended as a mutual and
co-ordinate protection of Mexico and
Cuba, such as should be regarded
with extreme suspicion by the United

The friends1 of 'the' cause m this
county, held a rery interesting meet
ing' on tha 13th ult, in the Hall of
Malta Division. - Strong ground was
taken against thev miserable .attempt
at a law, manufactured, without any

suited to the wants of the people, and
because it is not the law demanded at
their hands," by 260,000 intelligent
men and women.' The following res
olutions, "were" severally and unani
mously adopted : j 'f

fication, and feel that it is a matter of
great encouragement, that the cause

our own county ana throughout ine
country, has attained that prominence
never before reached, '.,..-
' Resolved, That we, to be consistent
temperance men, should, upon every
proper1" occasion,: so exercise the elec
tive franchjse that, it will tell to the
advancement of the temperance cause.
Resolved, That our confidence re
mains unshaken, in, the- fundamental
principles of the Maine Liquor Law,
and we do pledge ourselves th at we
will pot rest from -our efforts, until its
principles become embodied 'in a law
of our own much beloved Stale. '.
- Resolved, That we feel it our duty
to support men for legislative and
State offices, who are known and
pledged to be in favor of prohibitory
laws, suppressing entirely, the manu
facture and sale of intoxicating liquors
as a beverage,

Brethren, let your light so shine, that
others may see and learn the ways of
total abstinence. Disseminate intelli

lectures or tracts ; anyway, so that
the work is done. Do your duty, and
your reward will be great

The Springfield (Vt.) Telegraph
says, that seizures and arrests, under
the new liquor law, are more numer
ous than ever. 1 here is no use in
trying to give a journal of them. We
now have, says the Telegraph, a li

plaint of its being a dead letter '

even the fingers of avarice cannot pull
it out ; nor can the striped-pig root

that in the year 1853, this law will
save Vermont, about one Lake Cham

Cary, of Cincinnati, in one of his most
masterlefforts; ' For two hours hekept
the audience chained in almost breath
less attention,' and in the language
of one present; by no means a warm
advocate pf temperance, "it was the
most powerfully convincing address
ever uttered here, worthy of an, audi

When Mr. Dow closed, -Gen. Cary
was loudly and continually called for,
