.' A. Stewart, of Columbus; is one of
the most zealous and substantial friends

is wide awake 'on' the subject' at all
times and on all occasions; and among
other good things he is yuijty of,! has
obtained and forwirded the names! of
two hundred subscribers to1 the Organ.1
A few more such. Democrats; with the
aid ' of an eqqal number of ' Whigs

Daniel Webster on Temperance,
r A letter of this distinguished stales
man is going the rounds of the" tem
perance' press. ' ' It was ' written in
answer tq an invitation, tendered hire
from. Baltimore, to honor, with his
presence a Union Meeting J -of the
friends of Temperance. ' It is a fine
specimen of J non-committalism ', ' al
though he speaks respectfully of tthe
cause. .' Thank God, our cause is not
so hard pressed as to. need evidence
from ary source to sustain ita reputa
tion. If testimony was needed, we
shou'd be slow to call a witness to the
stand whose habits disqualified him
from appreciating the virtue 'of total
abstinence."' He furnishes a7 signal
instance of t the olWeneated truthi that
mighty intellect is made to bow before
the scepter oft Bacchus, t - :

these two, towns, was :116 against the!
law, and only 8 for it.".' We are not
surprised that' the civilized people of
Ultnlon ' county (poor Clinton ) are
au.iuus hi viuuicaie lueir claims to
respectability before the world, and it
is proper they should have an oppor
tunity, j The ' reason given above is
satisfactory,1 and it is highly creditablei
that the majority, untder the circum-

Whatever may be said by the apol

- On Saturday last, our' Executive
Committee held a meeting, and made;
some important steps for the further
ance' of the cause. Twenty thousand
copies of the; Maine Law Tract were;
ordered to be distributed in the city
and county, to' be followed by other
tracts. The county will be thorough
ly canvassed by J ohn R. Williams,
and other speakers. In fact, every
thing will be done that energetic and
consistent temperance men can do, to
secure the city arid county for the
Maine Law.' If all our efforts fail of
success, we shall have the proud sat
isfaction of knowing that we have done
our duty -that , we . have fallen with
our armor on, and our lace to the en
emy. But we. have no fefirs of de-

affir'm that this Maine1 Law question

'? Across? the. riverrIin. Kentucky
where the Wh'g star has been in' the
ascendant, the. leaders of that party
(in the, whisky faction) are just as
confident that Locofocoism has hatched
up this side issue to get control of the
State offices.; Read the following by
way of illustration', from that celebra
ted Whig paper, the Louisville Jour
nal: , S-.i'-i.'ii- i J-.-ii!..' v. ,r-. ! 'i
-"f All' the; probable Whig losses in
the Legislature, are referable to the
liquor-law agitation.. Some excellent
men and true Whigs are engaged in
this agitaiiod ; hut it was got up origi
nally for the 'purpose of making the
Legislature Locofoco; it is carried on
now for that purpose, by the wire
workers, and it may accomplish that
purpose. There is not a . solitary
county in the State, we learn' from
careful inquiry ,-,where the Locofocos
will lose a .legislative candidate ; cn
account; of , liquor - law divisions.
The losses will be all Whig, and the
gains all Locofoco just as it was de
signed and: calculated from the first
that they should and would be.'? 1
We hope while politician are quar-
reling about what party it 'will injure
o benefit, the people will put the law
through, let who will rise or fall by
S3T Our - Sunday , meetings are
still , kept up, ; and each succeeding
Sunday, the interest in the meetings
and for the .. cause increases.) Last
Sunday, we had a fine meeting at the
south end of the C, II. & D. Depot.
The, audience, was large , and every
thing went pff well. ; There ; was, nq
disturbance, although we heard sever
al doggery-keepers grumbling, when
the, "shoe pinched" too hard.! -The
speeches of Williams, Edwards, Gos-
sin and loihera : were .'well received.
On Sabbath next, at 4 o'clock j a
meeting will be held at the same place;
also on the wharf at 9 P. M., and at the
Floating Bethel at . 8, P.M.. ' Every
pledged man in the city should attend

brother unjustly reflecting upon us in
regard to 'the gentleman whose name
heads this article. ; The gentleman
called' at our office, 'and introduced
himself as a temperance lecturer, say
ing that he bad lectured In Massachu
setts,' and -other States.' He gave us
no references, and ' is we had never
seen any notices of hirn in ouf ex
changes fronf the1 States named, we
gave him no encouragement ; He left
without' any 'recommendation or en
dorsement from' uS. If the' brethren
were imposed Up6n, they.liave no one
to blame but themselves. The Grand
