'Ihe meeting was quite large, and Brother 0. gave them one of his best speeches. ' He spoke two hours and twenty minutes, and so great was the interest that not a dozen persons left the ground until he was through. The temperance men are very determined in Ross, but what will be the result no one can now say." The ab stract will be inserted next week. Jesse Atwell, Zanesville, 0., $1 for Organ. In his letter he says" One week ago to day, the whigs of Old Muskingum nomin- ated two out-and-out "Maine Law men," and will be, likely, elected, for the whigs are the predominant party. To-day de mocracy nominated their candidates, and it is generally believed that they are ' Anti Maine Law men." This, however, is not certain; but if they are, we will beat them bad if we can. 1 do not like to say, " if we can," for we will do it any how." That is the way to talk I E. L.

Brother M. M. Edwards is still at my house, and unable to be about. He has been confined to hit bed since Sunday week (say ten days), but is now on the mend. It will be some time before he is able to take the field, which is to be much regreted. His illness is pronounced by his physician to be inflammatory rheumatism."

In Cuyahoga county there We 748 persons committed to jail between the first of May and the first of August 1853, of these 628 were from the city of Cleveland, and 120 from the rest of the county. Of the whole numbe t 617 were committed for drunkenness and consequent bad conduct. R. Andet H. C If"1! 6cts. for Mrs. J. . C?n" i I ; What does it.Hean? j! ! , .': In the Daily Enquirer of the 17th ipstant'we find' the following editorial article.' It is an important article and has' created , quite an excitement in political circles. We .do 'not; know how to take : it, as the 1 Enquirer has been "Very bitter in,: its, opposition to .the Maine taw, denouncing its friendf in the severest terms,; asi fanatics, po litical aspirants, kd, ' We commend the Editor, however; notwithstanding his past misdeeds,' for ,1ns . manliness in denouncing Whisky-trading politi cians. He has told, nothing but tho truth, as . very intelligent man in Hamilton county cari testify. If any. ; doubt,, we have only to'point to tlie .eleotion of the Honorable Jake Flinn', to the office' of Judge of the Crimi nal Court;, But ,why shQuld the En-, quirer speak "out so' plainly,' just at this particular time?- Has the aspect 6f th$ party forced him to this tack? The Editor has probably just found out what he should have known long 'since, that more than half the Demo cratic party are in favor of the Maine Law, and will tote for it at all hazards. ' If the Enquirer, is in good faith en deavoring to eradicate the evil com plained of, he' can do no better than advocate the Maine' Law, for it' saps the very foundation of the great evil' Adopt this law, and decent, respecta ble men will stand some chance of be ing elected. ' We have hopes yet that atl will be right in this county ? ' , ; ( ' ' '. - i ' From the Cincinnati Enquirer. A Prolific Source of Corruption and- , ; Factionism.: .' S,T"' . ' Before the Pemocraoy of this, city and county eaa hope to regain that standing be--fore the people of the State and nation which they once enjoyed, and which has been worn , away, like solid rock tinder the constant dropping of the mountain rivulet, by a com bination of bad influences, which they tole rated, at first through charity, till, united, they have grown almost as formidable as the party, they must drive out from their midst and brand with lasting disgrace a good many abuses and demoralizing practices which of late years have been regarded by some men as part and parcel of the Democratic ele ment of success. ! t r . . -: ' Contention and rivalries among members of the party for the rich offices are not the only sources of corruption and faction in our party.: They are prolific of enough mis chief, and call loud enough for the applica tion of RETRENCHMENT: but they, in their nature, are accompanied by practices which even the ordinary contentions for place and emolument do not tolerate as proper or right. We will speak in plainer Shrase, and the reader will thoroughly nn erstand and apply : , , 1 Regularly upon the return of an election season, candidates for the offices to be filled start out on electioneering missions. They have their tames announced they have their "claims" heralded they endeavor to create all the interest and seal possible In their individual favor. This may all be well enough in a country where the hum blest and even the most incompetent and unworthy, as the popular idea has been of ten taught, "has the right to aspire to any office," but it would te still better to have the tables reversed once if not for the good it might do, for the novelty of the thing and let the people hunt for and electioneer for candidates. But, as some of our. aspi rants for place have heretofore conducted one of these electioneering canvasses, and, as it is too evident, some again are doing it, there are uses and abuses which the voting masses the honest and virtuous adherents to the party for the love of its principles should denounce, rebuke, repudiate and dis grace, wherever and whenever they see them resorted to or even hear of them being prac ticed. One of the abuses, degrading to the can didate and corrupting to the voter, is the system of electioneering on the strength of BRANDY and WHISKY.and through their instrumentality becoming, in the eyes of a class, "clever fellows." This has grown to be an evil of magnitude, and Is resorted to, we are grieved to say, and hundreds are as much grieved to see daily, by men who, on other than political occasions, would scorn to make personal favor at each a cost of reputation. ,We have seen candidates, for a time, refuse to "ccme in? to such aourse, but finally would yield, pleading that their rivals did so, and unless they followed the "usage there was no chance for votes-the "clever fellows" always treated ! Now and then this; system of 'drugging' one's self into popularity would so disgust a candi date who felt the claims of morality and good citizenship a little stronger," that he would abandon the field in. disgust, and thereupon he would have good cause to af firm, as has a thousand times over been said, that "no man with proper self-respect can get office any more In Hamilton county." - This system of 'WHISKT ELECTION EERING" has been the paternity of another vice, in our opinion equally degrading and reprehenttible. It ia the hiring of men, by candidates, with money paid into haad, and more promised in the event of success, to go around among coffee-houses, shops,, facto ries, &c.( and through the county at public gatherings, to influence voters fir favor of the certain aspirant, and to poison their minds by factious stories or downright slan ders, against riva's. There are men en gaged in both of these degrading ' means of getting office af this very time, and more will engage in them as the season progresses, unless the party, wherever they sea them practiced, rebuke it by some salutary lesson to the party engaged In it. 'This is why "good men," as hundreds ex press themselves, will not venture Into the field, or allow their friends to "introduce them to the arena. Will it be contended by any one, that for any of the civil positions of the State or county, we have not in our party at this day as many talented, virtuous, and competent men as we ever had T - Have we not meu who would honor any station, not only as ollicers of the people, but as ad herents of the Democratic faith ? No. one will gainsay the fact.: But the people are deprived of their services as men of ability, and station is deprived of their examples of morality and dignity, and party is deprived of their strength as the honest upholders of its faith, by the very fact, and shameful it is, that to get place they have to absolutely degrade themselves, not only in their own estimation butia that of the mass of society, by resorting to practices to prevent rival candidates of inferior merit from defeating them, which are totally incompatible with all their principles of morality and good citizenship. A few examples we have, of success without becoming parties to this system of making cleverness by treating and indirect bribes, but they are only in the'po sition of exceptions to a general rule. ' i , Nowi we know that we are speaking out in the press what will be seized upon else , where and used to reproach the Demooracy of Hamilton county with corruption, but that shall not intimidate us from saying what all candid men of our party will ad mit is true j and we are thus plain because we entertain the hope that the PART Y will drive these abuses ai.d all their school of mercenary and grovelling politicians out of its ranks, and stamp disgrace upon any as pirant for public favor, who seeks to reach it through mischief-making electioneering, treating at coffee-houses, or the appliances of money. " If they will do this, then the day of tricksters, small brains, small' men and whisky popularity and merits will have its inglorious end, and men of character, worth, talents and country-pride will again venture upon the stage.; . '' ; Public Discussion. ; v , ' We learn that the merits of the Maipi Law, pTO and con, will de discussed by Dr Jewitt in favor, and Mr. Bebee in opposi tion."" , , ' " . . .;, ri) ' " The first discussion to be held in Co lumbus, on Tuesday, August the 23d, 1853, commencing at ten o'clock A. M., and con tinued, in Law-aster, Tuesday, 25th; in Circleville, Friday, 26th j in Chillicothe, Tuesday, 30th. Each debate commencing at the same hour." , i . : That our readers may know who and what this Mr. Beebee is, we extract the fol lowing from an article from our distin guished Brother Olds declining a challenge for a public dismission: . . Who this Mr. Bebee is I know not, except tbaf I see from his paper he Is tho 'editor and 'publisher of this 'Banner of Liberty devoted to the exposure of all the various schemes of priestcraft for secur ing political ascendency and robbing the people.' I know nothing of his character, except as it may be inferred from the char acter of his sheet. If the number I have een Is a fair specimen of the pages gener ally, I am free to say it is not fit to be placed in any respectable family. It seems to be engaged in a crusade against the Christian Sabbath, the Christian Ministry, Sunday Schools, the Free School System, . Missionary Societies, Chaplains for Con- ' gress and the Navy, and indeed against almost everything that a Christian commu? nity has been adcustomed to hold dear and sacred."
