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.

" 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.

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

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

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.

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."
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

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. What a dis
