To-day wo moot in Convention ac cording to a provision in our Conntitn- tion forming our Union, and to colo brato tho anniversary of our organi zation. Tho ileanini duty ot extend ing to you tho uand ol wolcomo has de volved upon mo; and in oxtondinir to you that welcome, I feel that I am but receiving you in tho homo of your choit o; A year has passod nineo upon this spot lh firnt mcoting of this Tem perance Union was hold. A few of tho progressive Temperance norkora of our Society saw that the good of tho Murphy movement would bo lout, un it's" wo had Homo rules to guido and di rect our workings and wo had true Temperance workers its our helpers; and to day this privilege is duo in a great degree to their ell'orts. In tho name of tho members of tho (irampian Tamporanco I'nion, 1 thank you for your coming amongst us, and assure you, that they will make your visit one of pleasure to you, and wo trust it will be one of profit to us. By your delib erations wo expect to bo bcneflttod. We look for an awakening of a still greater interest among our people. Wo hopo that a stimulus may bogivon producing further aud more cxtniled efforts in behalf of our youth that they may bceotno intelligent and sober citt icns. Wo trust that from your efforts the people of this neighborhood will bo led to feel tbat it is not only thou duty, but their privilege, to givo their influ ence as well as their means to extend tho Temperance work ; and thus will they realise that their money and timo v ill bo converted into intelligence and virtue in tho minds of thoso in whoso society thoy and their children must expect tolivo. I wolcomo you because, as an Intelligent pcoplo, wo must wol como overy movement which looks to tho elevation ot individuals of what ever class, aud which tends to increase tho welfare of tho community. Wo wclcomo you as a convention in which wo claim a special interest an organisation comprising thoso who sustain a near and important relation to tho public welfnro ; pontons whoso intelligence and mental culture have a professional as well as a personal con nection with tho advancement of soci ety. May yourshadow never grow less; may the great and good work still pros per in your hands, ami its influence' extend from tho A llantio to tlx 1'acitio, from the Arctic to the Antarctic. The stars and stripes ore long will float over tho whole continent.

Thus will your mission bo accomplished and our desiro gratifiod, the uefoIui'TsiTthesta TE lsi.ivinKD iiy , j, BiT.rcr.n ntroait t THE (IBAall'lAN TKMI'XaAMCI CONVENTION, JI,NI Ifl. What is tho object and duty ol tho Stifle, is a question which wo of to-day may well ask. Js it hot to secure the best interests ot its citi.eni and to guarantee to them the inostimablo privileges of lllo, liberty, and tho pur suit of happiness, and all that will elo. vate and ennoble, and to free from all that will dobase and degrade? Is it not to raise tht lowly and strengthen tho weak, which it manifestly a publio duty.hcnco of tho State? , Is it not the protection ol society from foos within as well aa enemies without, ol which the pnnlsnmcnt of the criminal la but a moans? Are not these a part, and not the least part of its duties ? But whon it lcgalir.es a traffic which is an acknowledged injury to the peoplo, private and publio, docs it not step be yond ita objoct and take a stand direct ly opposite to its duty ? Does it not becomo in this particular, instead of tho guardian ol our nguls ana liberties, tuo tool ol tne unnguteouB me screen and protection ot iniquitios giving its sanction and tho appearanco of right to that which no earthly law can make right because opposed to tho moral and llivino 1 1 It is undoubtedly the duty of the Stato to protect the weak from the oppressions ol tho strong ; out it a armed one portion of its citizens, that they may proy upon tlio unwary ana futtun from tho weakness and follies of the race. Not that this was the origi nal inUnt of tho license law, but such it is to-day. Framed to restrict the sale and use of intoxicants, it has be como tho lion in tho path of reiorm tho shield and perpetuation, instead of the opponent ot tho train c. The .State has liconscd thesalo of in toxicating liquors. Is this all? What has it done f at lias opened the flood gates of destruction upon tho land. It has torn away tho young and tho fair into a bondago worso than death. Jt has armed brother against brother for bis destruction. 1 1 has protected dons ot iniquity and given promiumstor vice. It has snatched tho son from tho arms of his father, and the husband from the bosom ot his family, and whirled them on to quick destruction, despite the cries of tho suffering and hearkened not to their prayers. It liasnorvod tboarm of tho murderer and erected a thou sand gallows. It has filled our Courts and jails with criminals and our land willi paupers, and taxed us for their support. It has tapped the veins of our prosperity and drawn Iborclrom its own lifeblood. It has called down the wrath of jtistico upon tho peoplo and the whirlwind of destruction tho- tret to fall upon thcin. And what for all this has it received ? Tho gold of them who havodono evil ; tho sup port of tho moro than futherlct-s, antl tho Bustenanco of tho starving and na ked, l-'or all this shall thero be no retribution? Kvoiy drop ol blood drawn by tho driver's lash was requit ed by a thousand poured out upon tho fluid ol battle ; and shall wo go tree? But does it not- bear within itself its own great punishment. Its agent in all this has been tho wine cup. How much of good, ol virtue, must it tuko to offset so much of evil f How much ex penditure, treasure for education and lor charity, is mado necessary by this so great destruction f How much is for no avuil ? and still it is all a dead, dead loss a loss not only of treasuro, and effort, and power, but of lilo, and uopo and ileavun r A loss not to be cal culated in this world, not in dollars and cents, but in prayers and tears ; id manhood destroyed, and the promises of childhood unfilled ; in tho cries and struggles of the orphaned and qf thorn who are more than widows; in the lives it has blastod, and thosouhi it has lost to Heaven ; and not only in tho mitory it baa brought, but in the peace, joy, and happiness which should have been tho portion ot thoso who brought bitterness with pleasure and met de struction in tho way of life. I bavo said the stato has done all this; but what is tho slute? la it the land wo tread? Is it, as in tho days ol Cu par of old, who said, "I am tho state 1 II e are tho state, and u e havo dono these' things. If wo are not, another Ciraar has arisen whoso namo ib rum. Shall Cicsar rule and wo bo willina slaves t Shall wo obov his now- or and murmur," ll' ar free ! " Heav en forbid I Our Bafuty, and tho frco- Uom ot our lathers lorbid that Una should be. Shall wo turn traitors to the cause of right and cast a stain up on tho namo of freedom that namo, tho watchword pf our land 1 It shall not bo. Wo must bo froe not to do wron; but to livo aright. Shall there be no premium on virtue ? I lovo the frcodom of our laws, but 1 would seo virtuo placed beyond tho reach of avarice ana passion, and wbercevcr thoy would respect it. It is in our hands. 1 The peoplo aro tho Stato, and virtue still survives.

Ladies and Centlemen : It is a prineiplo generally conceded that law makers should not bo law breakers ; yot in the history of our Slato wo find that a certain Legislature committed murder. Yes, it actually killed tho Local Uption Law, and on its cornso gave birth to tho I. Ichiro law as it now exists, which to say tho least is a dis graco to legislation, a terror to tho community and a libel against tho rights ol num. Iiy a cureory exami nation of tho law wo find it something hkothis: liiccnso for selling intoxica ting drink may bo granted by tho Court of Quarter Sessions for one yonr. Tho amount to bo paid to procuro liccnso varies from $5(1 to $700, $700, where tho yearly sulos amount to moro than !0,000, and ."0 whero they amount to less than $1,000. In the liccnso for a bond of $2,000, and a peti tion signed by twelvo respectable men is required before the demon alcohol can be legally unveiled for public viow. Can thoso conditions bo complied with? Tho bond may bo given, tho liccnso fee paid, but can respcotablo men bo lound to sign a liconso paper f I leave this point to your consideration. Bon der it well. Liconso having been secured, the law then lays restrictions on the holder of it. And this part of tho law is sub timely ridiculous. Those restrictions roquiro that liquor shall not be aold on Sunday, or on election days, and why? It Bold on Sunday twill most likely be drank on Sunday, and if drank it becomes a disturbing elcmont that causus a gloom ovor tbe sanctity of the day ; and to soil it on election days is simply tODifdnnger tho purity and froe aio of tho ballot. W hat Solomon's our Legislature must have boon com posed ot lo make such wlso (?) restric tions. Only think I 3ti.ril days in a year and I olootion days aud, 52 Sun days deducted thorcfrom leaves 3111 days lor liquor to bo sold to inca paliato man loi a propor observance ot Sunday and an intelligent uso of tho ballot. Vt hat wisdom! what wisdom ! 1 Now I ask if It Is detrimental to tho publio interest to sell liquor on Run day and olootion days (and the lawn inlbr that it is) ia it not equally to to scl It tho other 311) days? Again, none is to Do sold lo drunk ard. If this restriction was complied wilh none would bo sold, lor tbo man who takes a drink and walks upright is a drunkard, the same io kind but not in degree, as tho ono who takes four drinks and wallows In tho ditch. Tbo logical sequence then is that tho holder of license must violnto the law or ho will havo paid a feo to the State for tbe privilogo of carrying on a busi ness sbo torbidB mm to do. nut none is to be sold to minors. This is the only good feature of tho wbolo law, and it pierces as a two odgod sword to tho heart ot a motner whose busband has reached the apex of inebrioty and is roturncd to her worso than worth less by the left fiaud of tho law, while tho nebt band tears from her bosom her son, who bus just becomo of ago to fill his father's wako.

A State Is a union of people withia certain pre scribed limits of longitude undlaliludo, and with us is comprised of three do- yai-tmcnls, Legislative, Kxec.utivo and udiciary. Tho duty of tho first is to mako such laws as will secure men in life and property, and aid them in their development of their intellectual and moral faculties. Tho duly ot the second is to cxecuto tho law. lS'ow, if I either of theso departments would perform its duty as delegated to and required ol H no liquor could oe sold. Tho Legislature could not have passed a license law while under tho law as it now is, it could not be sold if tbe Execu tive did not belray its trust, and if tho Judiciary would do its duty the law would bo declared senseless jargon and stricken from our staluto books. Tho duties of tho Stale thou is not to givo license to men to cngago in a trade detrimental to the host intcrosts of bor subjects ; but her duty to pro- vido strmgont laws lor tbe punishment of mon thus engaged.

DELIVERED ItEFoRE THE tlENERAL TEM PERANCE CONVENTION ATdBAMl'IAN 11 ILLS BY JOHN RllHsr.I.t., Jvhz 19, 18H0. Tho importanco ot literature as a factor in Temperance work or; in other words, of Tomporanco literature cannot, in my opinion, do more torci bly illustrated than by reference to tbo influence which is exercised upon tho world of mankind by tho vnrious, X might say multifarious, forms of litora turo which have boon and aro now be ing spread broadcast throughout tho land upon every subject, whether ro ligioUB or irreligious, moral or immoral, chnsto or obsceno whother sciontillc, political, sacred, or general. ihrougn tno aid ol mo printing press, with Us wondcrtul modern im provements, tho facilities for communi cating and circulating thought have been increased ten thousand fold. The almost innumerable und gigantic powor presses which aro kept constantly run ning to supply tho want that is croated rh the minds of an intelligent people by popular oducation aro destined to exorl a mighty inlluonco for good or lor evil, lo seo that the good may prodrimihato is tho business of all good poonlo. Tomporanco workers, then, should avail themselves unsparingly of this engine of power, not only in disseminating tho seeds ot Temperance, but in counteracting and thwarting tho efforts of tho arch enemy, Intem perance. it might dc argucu by eomo that tbo Inebriate seldom rends, and hence can not bo reached ly this method. Ad mitting this to bo tho fact, which is not, howovor, conclusive, wo havo still a host who havo never, or seldom at least, indulged in tho intoxicating bowl to such an extent as to stultify tho roasoning faculties and destroy their desire lo read ; who aro standing aloof from all Temperance work ; who have planted themselves upon the Drink whon you please and let it alonowheo you ploaso" doctrino; who bavo .never taken a thought ol tho ab. Bolute deformity of the practice, or culmnly considered its dire elfecls upon individuals, lamuics anu communities. Thoso should bo enlightened ; these, many ot whom aro men of tender and sympathetic natures, who would scorn lo commit an oven act ol cruolty or wrong heads of families, perhaps, who would shudder at tho thought of a bo loved boy, anon whom high hopos aro being built, becoming a victim ot tho demon of intomporanco, of running the drunkard') cottrso and filling a drunk ard's grave ; these whose inortnoss in all tbat pertains to this groat quostion has prevented them Irora attending meoliiigs whore tho subject is discussed, or taking any part in the work, might bo reached by tho circulation of Tom poranco literature Ijot us aupposo a case, and, In doing so, It noed not bo wholly drawn from the imagination. When, during a long Winter ovoning, gathered around a oheorful tire, wife and children eager lo bear tho nows which the day's mail has brought tho father, in looking over tho papers, finds one which does not belong to his regular hndi'ot, h picks REPUBLICAN. it up and commonooa roading it. Il is a paper published in the interest of tho Tomporance cauae. " Somo ono bus been kind enough lo sond it lo mo," ho soliloquizes ; " X am not particularly iotorcstod in the subject, but X will not be so unkind as lo throw it aside with out reading it." Xlo finds an article headed "A Sad Affair." Ho roads it aloud. It is an account of a circum stunco which had recently occurred in a neighboring county. A young man, while intoxicated, had committed suicide. Tho namo is familiar; ho knows him well. His family connec tions wero highly rospoctahle; his father was a thrifty merchant, whoso timo had boon chiefly given to businoss, and, though not ignorant of tho habits into which his son was drifting, be always lucked the lime or tho disposi tion to take any part in Temperance work. Tbo scono at the funeral was vividly portrayed the mother and sister crazed with griet ovor tbe un timely and unnatural ending of tbe lilo ol a loved son and brother who, had it not been lor strong diink, might havo lived to bo the pride of tho house hold and an ornamont to society. Tho picture calls lo the mind ol tbe reader the fact that he loo has a son on whom ho dotes, and who is liable to thosame temptation. He remembers, also, that he too has cvor regarded the Tompcranco movomont as ono in which he had littlo or no interest in fact, ho has sometimes spoken light of it ; but now bo takes a dillercnt viow of tho case' "What if such a lalo should befall my boy!" Ho pauses, as if for reflection, and then with firm resolve declares, " From this hour, X -shall do my duty ; it shall never rqoro bo said that my innuenco has boon thrown on tho sido ot Intemperance." His resolution is faithfully kept, and tho Tcmporunce causo has gained a useful member. And this single instance ol tho effect of Temperance literature, circulated as it should be Into ovcry household, may be ono among thousands ot a some what similar character. Who, then, will for a moment question the inllu onco of literaturo as a factor in tho causo of Temperance. In short, through tho agency ot printing, thosuhject might bo discussed in all its bearings. And not among the least are its financial features. Statistical tables might bo made from official and other reliablo sources which would no doubt astonish tho impartial thinker. Let tho books bo opened and fairly kept Dr. and Cr.

A remark able career of social impos ture camo to an ond not long since in New York in the death of ono Haase, a barbor of that city. This person, strange as it may Room, lived two en tirely different and distinct lives : in the shop at homo ho was Darner iiaaso ; in the great world of New York "so oiety" ho was Uaron do Moiney, or, us he was morefumiliurly known, "Baron CailoB." Ab "Baron Carlos" ho was introduced into what are called tho best circles of Now York. Silly fash ionablo women woro delighted to bo noticod by this tonsorlal artistenfflurri, and ho was generally a lavorito with the females who woro honored wilh his acquaintance. Carlos Bcrapcd the chins of his customers, and Iho beau monde ol Now Y'ork Blruggled to scrap hi acquaintance. In this way of mutual interchange tho world and "Baron Carlos" main tained strangely diversified but agree ablo relations. But a timo camo at last wbon M. do Maincy mot a cus tomer who was noitbor lo be tritlod wilh nor duped. Duatb, a moro ac complished harlequin moro protcuu in his disguises than even our Baron, called in on him one day quietly, and there was an cud ol the jest. As Baron de Maincy bis death was certified to, and a genteel tremor ran through "society" ut the announce ment that tho social lion was no more. Indeed, but for a little matter ot money a triflo in tho way of an In heritance awaiting bis widow for thero was a lime. Haase--in. beautiful France, Murray Hill and thereabouts might bavo gouo down to its grave, as it wero, in ignoranco of tho truth of tho impost ii re. But Mme. llaaso learned that by a Fronch law it was noccssary lor a wife to obtain hor bus. band's consent, or show, proof of his death, before taking a legacy. I'pon this statement ot stubborn lucts she applied to tho Supremo Court to havo his death certificate altered to his real name ot llaaso, in order that she might present it in Franco as a proof of her widowhood, and in this prosaic way ot business was it that tho caro fully kept secret became known. Last week tho Court ordered tho change to bo made, and Mmo. Unaso will proba bly get her legacy. There is something of a moral in this littlo story of llaase alias "Baron Carlos." It is this: tbat American parents would do well to scrutinize tho credentials of at least throe-fourths of tho alleged scions of nobility who present themselves as acquaintances of their daughters. Old residents ot aslnngton may romombor how somo half century ago a cortnin tailor in tbat city assumed after dark to be a Count, aud assucb bad the entree to what was, at that timo, by contrast with tho preBcnt, tolerably "good Washington socioty." This varlctcut out and sowed breeches in the day time, and in the evenings, undor tbe sott light ot the wax candle, tho (if ijiorno of tho Venetians, ho caporud and posed as Count Sorncthing-or-othor. A gcntloman who had met the jester socially had occasion to call at the tailorsbop to bo measured tor a suit of clothes. In tho backroom ho stumbled on tho "Count." The murder was out, it is true, but how confused was "socioty" at the discovory I Per haps this person assumed to bo a "Count D'Albora" perhaps it was something else. At all ovents, had his imposture and its exposure taught "society" a lesson, he had not lived in vain. But, as we all know, the exact rovorso is the case, for Amorican "so ciety" is as servile in its adulation ot a Count, real or alleged, to day, as it was filly or seventy-five years ago. TU EM1 LLERS" EXPOSITION. Tho Millars' International Exposi tion recontly hold at Cincinnati is well worthy the notice ot oven thoso who may not bo especially intorestod in tho milling industry. Tho Enquirer nows papoieof that city vory properly rec ognizes tbo gloat prominonco of Iho milling and grain interest ot our country, and notos tbo rapid advances made in this business, within tho past lew years, as revealed by the deliber ations of this largo assembly of millers. A few years ago tbe United Stales manufactured only ita own flour, and a comparatively small quantity ot our ordinary quality for export; whereas il now produces the very best flour mado in the world, and more of it than any other country. Our flour which formerly ranked as a second or third grado article in the markets of tho world has, through rccont improve ments, been made to equal the most celebrated Kntopcan flour, and we now furnish it in large quantities to Kuropo, lo India, to Africa, to China and Japnn, to tho Kust Indios, and to tho various countries of South Amer ica. Tbo npnng wheats oi tne unitca States, which, until tho recont discov eries of propor means of handling them, havo been thought inferior, are now recognized as tho best grown, and Knglish millers say that they now prefer ihcm to any thoy can procure olsewhore. Tho greatnesa of our grain and mill ing Interests may be estimated from tho fact tbat thero aro about twonty live thousand mill in tho United States which employ not loss than ono hundred and fifty thousand people, and represent an invested capital of $50,00U,UUU. Xb0B0 mills, il run stoad ily one-hall the year, could grind every bnshol of wheat growfl in our country hence the importanco of manufac turing all our wheal into flour for ship ment to foreign countrica in order that our mills bo kept employed. The wheat export of tho I'liited States in 1H7!) was 12:',.l53,ii.l0 bushels, valued at $130,701,079; tbo flour export, during tho samo year, was 5,f2!,714 barrels, valuod at $2,57,730. These figures indicate what a field the mill era of our country have before them a field which they ought not fail soon to occupy. Tho Enquirer rightly concludes that the United State is to provide in tho future tbe bread of tbo world. Send ing abroad in 1800 but 4,000,000 bush els of wheat, and in 1870 but 3li,000,. (100, it sent In 1870 about 125,000,000. In Kurnpe only Itussia, Hungary and Turkey produce more wheat than thoy can consume, but the surplus which thoy furnish does not begin to supply tho European demand. The general Kuropoan deficit still leaves Europe wanting annually 200,000,000 bushels, and of this vast amount of wheat tho United Stales must furnish the greater share. It is tHeretoro ovidont that Kit rone must look lor it main supply of wheal to tho United States, and it ia also plain that the growing ol wheal and its manufacture into good flour are industries of the utmost importance to our peoplo.

The effort now being mado at Car lisle, thi Stato, lo educate Indian children are worthy of encouragement. Tho ultlmalo improvement of the In dian can only be assured by trying to teach bim, while a child, what is use ful and necessary for him to know in order lo properly appreciate and ap propriate lor his own use and web litre the industries und arts cf lhoo races which have beuu iutluuiitod and whose condition has beon advanced by tho quickening power ol civilization. Tho incalculable benefits ot oducation, tho golden fruits ol modern soicntitio investigations, which, through our publio school system, are put within tho reach of tho White and tho Negro, havo hitherto been lost to tho Indian child since tho last named baa beon always Ibrcod to live wilh his savage parents tar distant from all Influences which tend to mako mankind wiser and bolter. We do not in the least doubt that il is quite impoBsiblo to civilizo tbe older wild Indians, but with their children it is different, they can be taught and mado, at least, to realize the advantage of having a thorough common school education. That this work, however, may bo prpporly done Indian children should be removed from the rough Western frontier and put at a point whoro they can be surrounded with every influence likely to render them amenable to law and order, and at the sumo time provide them with the knowledge essential lo their improve inent. At Carlisle, in tho beautiful Cumberland valley, tho young Indian is furnished evory opportunity to wit ness Iho many valuublu products which tho earth when properly culti vated can be niade to yield, and thus tho youthful savago doubtless will soon bo led to entertain a commcntla blo desiro for the substantial comtorts which he sees the pale lucos about him so keenly relish. It may be urged that this method of disposing of tho much-mooted In dian question is an extravagant method. But it must bo remembered that it is not proposed at once to edu cate all tho children of the sixty-five Independent tribes ol Indiana in tbe United States but only a few children year by year of each tribe trusting that in duo timo these children as thoy grow to ho mon and women may bo activeagenuui teaching their rela tions tho advantages of better ways ol living. His Btulcd on reliablo authority that since tho establishment of our tlovcrnmeiit not less than $720,000,000 has been expended in the attempt to control and civilizo tho Indians, ar.d the result of this great expenditure, as our readers aro well aware, is very unsatisfactory. The Indiana remain vicious and savage, and are in fact but pan pore roaming over one hundred and fifty millions of acres of land which thoy do not to any appreciable oxlont attempt to cultivate. Hence it is thai tho Indian must bo taught the lesson ol self relianco and obedience to the laws. His real progress in knowl edge and in the acquisition of wealth must rest on tho solid foundation of his own merit and industry. The Indian and tbo Negro cannot be always bol stered up by our Government; thoy must learn tho lesson long ago acquir ed by white men, namely, that with out tho fuculty of paying for tbo mor row, of providing for a roiny day, no true civilization is possible. No amount of silly Rcntimentalism crontcd nnd fostered for political purpose by scheming demagogues can prevent tho inferior races from being subject to tbo inoxorahlo laws which govern all man kind.

Walker, Ksq., residing near this town, started for his farm.nearSwann creek, and on tho way stopped at Mrs. Dr. lticaud's, nonr St. Paul's Church. On resuming his journey, in turning ho drovo his horses' beads into a bee nest on tho hanging limb of a trco and in n moment the animals woro covorod wilh the voracious insects and plung ing in tbo most depcroto manner. With the ossislnnco of C. O. JiicanJ, however, he managed in a tow minutes to Ireo thorn from the carriage, in the meaiilimo calling for water. This was promptly rospondod to and the appli cation of a few buckets dampened tho ardor of the devouring insects. The horses woro then taken to the pump and thoroughly dronehed, hut tho bees did not Cease to hover around them for some time. While detaching tbe horses Mr. Walker was stung in many places on tho faco and neck and fre quently had tnwipooffthobocswith his hand. Mr. Walaer undertook to re sume bin journey Boon afterward, but tho horses were so tromnloiis wilh pain and tright that oven tho approach of a fly would causo them to shudder, and ho put them in tho stable and drove home at night. If a boo' nest had to bo encountered on tho journey il is fortunate for Mr. Walker that the attack was matle at that placo, for without water the bens could not havo been conquered. We congratulate our friend on his lorlunalo escape Irom moro serious injury.
