TEMPERANCE REFORM. 328 THE OHIO ORGAN- OF -THE- ' 1 ' Vof the Ohl6 Ortin. ' ' - Columbus, Oct 13th, 1853. , Biqraw CL-The result o( the elec tionslast Tuesday in this county, and prob ably through the Stat baa dieappoined the more sanguine friends of the Maine Law ; but though defeated ia their immediate ob- ject, the election cf a Maine Lav Leglsla ture, jreat and lasting result have been achieved in its behalf in the late content The Temperance eanw haa advanced far ther in the State during the paetalx montha than it had In the ten jean previous. Less than three months ago I commenced the da , tie ft J gBC7. nd within that brief t ( time mere than twenty thousand dollars hare been raised and expended in the vail l ' - ons counties for the payment of temperance lecturers, and the distribution of tracts and it ' campaign papers. These have left a mighty ''" influence behind them which will continue ',, , to move and mold the mind and heart of . . the people everywhere for the Maine Law. -.' This year we have engaged in the first struggle at the ballot-box for a prohibitory r law. ' It would Indeed be Wonderful if the first battle should be crowned with victory but some of us, Inspired by the almost mi raculous result in Michigan, had expected a similar miracle In Ohio.' If the question had been submitted ti a direct Tote of the people in the same form, it would have met a similar answer. The election has dis J solved all illasion, has disclosed our real strength and our real wants. We will en ' ter the next contest with the lights of expe rience to guide us. The work of prepara tion was brief, hasty and imperfect We shall atone for our past , errors by better counsels and more consistent action. We have learned among other things in whom our confidence can be safely trusted, and who are the false friends, full of promises in the public meetings, but traitors at the polls. In this county, (and I will specify the village opposite Columbus,) were Rome - among my political party who held offices in the Temperance Alliance, and were mem bers of an evangelical church, who a little . before election, made loud protestations of their purpose to support none but pledged and reliable candidates for the Legislature ; but last Tuesday they gave their votes and influence to the rum pledged candidates of the party. Gentlemen, read the public dec laration of Hiram Hendren in his note to the Anti Maine Law Committee, published long before election in the Columbus pa pers, where he says : ' received your note of tie 3d init , irking me to elate explicitly whether, ij elected a Rtpreientative to the Leg islature of Ohio, I would vote for a law limilar to the Maine Liquor Law. Candor compel me to lay I would not. In my judgment the Maine Law hat feature in it at war with all republican idea, and tubvertive of Vie right of a free people." Then read the published note of A. Thompson, wherein he says : " I retpectfully with to ttate thai I am, and ever have been, opposed1 to the Maine Law, or any Law limilar to it" Then read the con stitution and pledge of the Temperance Al liance to which you pnblicly affixed your name, declaring thus ia solemn form your promise to vote for none bu Maine Law candidates for the Legislature. Compare these together with the vote which you gave last Tuesday for Hendren and Thomp son, and, as you kneel at your pillow ask Ood if you can to bless you with a clean heart and a quiet conscience I Rather ask Him to forgive your treachery to the cuse of virtue, and your hypocrisy before the world. Your party leaders after having enticed you to play this game of duplicity and shame, may pat you on the back and call yon " honest democrats ;" but in their ' hearts they scorn your dishonesty and chuckle at the spoils of your easy virtue. Tbanks to the true hearted Democrats who spurned the threats and cajolements of their party demagogues, and stood at the polls all day, contending nobly for the temperance cause. Brothers of Temperance, your first battle in Ohio has been gloriously fought. If it has not gained all, it has achieved ' much. Another year will summon you te another conflict Press on 1 , God and the people will five you victory. A. A. Stswaat, State Agent. -, Isnao J. Allen. " This noble temperance man received a very large vote for Lieut. Governor, and but for the whisky Whigs in South ern Ohio who scratched his name from their ballots, would have been tri umphantly elected, notwithstanding hte heavy Democratic majority in the State. The low, dirty, scurrilous at tack upon his private character made in the Ohio Statesman, just on the eve of the election, gave him many votes where he was known. In Richland county, where Allen resides, and in the adjoining county of Ashland, the libelous article of the Statesman re sulted rx giving him' more Votes than Barrere and Lewis united. The ma jority against him was less than half the usual number against the Whig ticket. So also in Knox, Morrow and Holmes counties. We are truly glad to see such assaults upon an exem plary and worthy ' citizen meet with 6uch a rebuke. ' ,' ' We hope the day is not distant when all the political parties will find it nec essary to conduct a canvass fairly, and not attempt to secure success by as persing character. Not All Lost! We have not yet reliable returns from the election in this State, and consequently cannot tell how many Temperance men are returned to the Legislature. V in Northern Ohio, where the influ ence of Distilleries was not felt, and where foreigners are not omnipotent, all was done that could have been desired. .; ,' ' ' In the Reserve of 12 Representa tives we learn that ten are Temper ance men, and of the six Senators five are with us. ' Thepeople of Southern Ohio ought to be ashamed to let the makers and venders of liquor make them bow to their galling yoke. " Mapleton ; or More Work for the Maine Law " We find on our table a copy of this book we have been exceedingly de lighted with a perusal of its contents, and have no doubt but that it will meet the universal approbation and esteem of an intelligent and virtuous people. It is a story in which are interwoven very gracefully and convincingly, a large variety of arguments in favor of the Maine Law. We would com mend it warmly to the notice of all, and feel satisfied that good results will follow wherever it is read. It is published by Lewis Colby & Co., 122 Nassau street, New York. b.

A Cask Of Fatae SEGtfior bt a Drunken Mother. Coroner Sanborn was called yesterday to hold an in quest on a female infant child,'! eight or nine days old, found dead in the lap of its drunken mother, in the basement of house No. 2, Stillman-place. ' It appeared ; from the evidence, that since the child was born the mother had been intoxicated most of the time; she did not seem to like the child, but neglected it; night before last the mother and her eldest child slept in a closet under the stairs, which greatly resembled a coal-hole, upon some old clothes and rags ; by her side, in an old champagne basket filled with rags, slept the infant j durirg the night the infant cried very much, but the mother was so much intoxicated that she knew nothinsr' about it ; yesterday morning the mother was noticed lean-1 ing over her child until it was purple in the face, but she took no heed of the remonstrances of the neighbors. It was also stated that she had sold off most of her furniture and clothing for rum,1 and lived, with her children, upon cold victuals which she obtained. The verdict of the jury was that the child came to its death from 1 neglect and want of proper nourishment, the mother having been intoxicated ' most of the time since it was born. She was complained ofjn the Police Court this morning as a common drunkard, and was sent to Deer Island. The Athenium. ''' Intemperance and ; Colleges. -A distinguished gentleman of this State and one who has been long and inti mately associated with a college in the State,, remarked publicly that nearly every student who had been expelled from his institution, owed his expulsion to the Use of liquors. And not only so, but that every disorder and difficulty which had transpired during that , period might be traced with infallible certainty to the same cause. And, continued he, ' many who were not expelled from college were withdrawn by their parents, upon private representations .made to them by me. Such is the influence of strong drink , upon the condition and fate of our collegiate institutions, that it may be safely affirmed that thousands of dollars are annually lost to the State by this instrumentality. s . , Spilled. The officers of the law deliberately, but without malice afore thought, caused the destruction of about four or five hundred gallons of liquor on Monday last. It was done by due process of law, and its destruc tion witnessed by about a hundred persons, some of whom thought it was too bad to have so much "good liquor" wasted others ' voted it nasty and thought it was treated full as well as it deserved to be. Saco Union. A fellow don east having been found guilty of violating the Maine liquor law, in disposing of the ardent, and rascally stuff at that, was ordered by the Judge to stand up and receive the 8 ntence of the court which was as follows : "You old reprobate ! The court sentences you to drink two glasses of your own rascally liquor, and may tne lord have mercy on your stomach." e One of Rum's Victims. A Mrs. Fierce, an intemperate woman about 40 vears of see, expired suddenly in Euclid street yesterday afternoon. She was first observed standing by a fence, with her neck upon the pickets, where sue lmmeai atelv fell and exmred. ' ' . The deceased was in the regular habit of getting drunk, for which offense she was recently sent to jail on bread and water. Her husband is now serving out a similar sentence for the same cause.
