More i'utcut Democracy !
The Belinsgrove Times of last week has
the following denunciations of revival
meetings generally ami Methodists in
particular. The editor of that intensely
democratic sheet can see 110 distinction
between weak-minded persons and those
of stronger hraiu, or he would not indis
criminately condemn all who might shout
lor joy, a> even the sacred volumes record
many instances where the people shouted
and made other -noisy demonstrations
from the same motive. Hut for the ex

We are often amused to see the way
newspapers credit articles. Some months
ago a paragraph originating we think up

■ weeks, was reproduced by a city paper,
and then copied by sundry country papers
and credited to the city press. A few
weeks ago the Fulton Republican trans

MESSRS. EDITORS: —It was my privi
lege lately to spend a few days in Ivislia
coquillas Valley, where 1 attended tlie
East Kishacoquillas Church, on Sabbath,
-'4tli February, which is under the pastor
al care of Rev. George Elliott. After ser
vice he announced that Rev. Mr. Mr-
Clean of Lewistown would lecture in that
church on the following Thursday even
ing. and urged in a few but earnest re
marks the importance of having a full at
tendance of the congregation, and at the
same time gave notice that he had taken
the liberty of appointing several efficient
committees to distribute tickets, and re
quested an interview with the following
persons, chairmen of these committees,
viz : Messrs. John Hayes, Howard Mc-
Farland, Williamson NeXitt, Robert M.
Taylor, Capt. R, J, McNitt and Gen. J.
It struck me at once that with such en
ergetic and worthy men, with the assis
tance I understood they were to have from
some of the young Ladies of the congre
gation who have always been so efficient
and active in every effort to promote any
object sugested by their Pastor, success
seemed inevitable. Although they had
but a few days for oj>eration, several of the
committees disposed of all their ticketson
the first day.
The employees of the factories of Messrs.
Mann came almost in a body, as did also
the Montgomery lodge of Good Templars,
many of whom are from those works.
The excellent lecture, which was on the
Dignity ot Labor, was especially appro
priate to and seemed to be highly appre
ciated by them. It would be doing good
service to the country if the excellent lec
ture of the Rev. Gentleman could be de
livered to the laboring classes throughout
our entire land.
Professor Sharp and the pupils of his
prosperous Seminary, (now in charge of
the County Superintendent, Prof. Moh
ler,) were also present. Indeed such an
interest was manifested, that wagons had
to be procured to accommodate those who
had no means of conveyance. The roads
were in very bad condition, but with all
these disadvantages, there were from 250
to 300 people present. The proceeds
amounted to between S7O and $75, which
1 understood was the largest amount re
ceived by the Lecturer at any one place.
The committee feel confident that had
the roads been good SIOO would have been
realized. Dr. G. V. Mitchell presided on
the occasion and introduced the speaker
with a few pertinent remarks.
John Hayes, esq., ottered a resolution
tendering the thanks of the audience to
Mr. McClean, and was followed by a res
olution from Gen. Taylor,
"That notwithstanding we were charged
with old fogyism, we can appreciate such
a treat as we have just had."
The 100 th Psalm, to thetuneof Old Hun
dred, was sung by the choir, the whole
congregation rising to their feet, which
contributed much to the interest of the
occasion, and the proceedings closed with
I think I may add that all went home

For the Gazette.
A short time ago a bundle of papers was
found, no owner for which can be discov
ered. Someextracts are furnished, which
may perhaps interest the readers of the
Gazette. The following was no doubt in
tended for a temperance speech :
Feller Citizens and Ladies and Gentle
men—You all know me like an old book
and that 1 was sometimes called a hard
case. Well, I don't know but you were
about right, for the truth is I have some
times done hard things; and if I only had
the gift of the gab as well as my friend on
the right, I could tell you astring of facts
that would reach from Philadelphia to
Pittsburg. Licker has cost me a good
deal, more than you'd guess. In thefirst
place, when I'd get drunk and come home
the old woman—whom by the by I can
never repay for her kindness and forbear
ance —came in for a share of abuse, and
though 1 say it with shame, I more than
once cursed her, and for all I know per
haps struck her. Next it cost me a good
deal of money, more than 1 can tell, but
when I think that ten cents a day spent
for liquor is $38.50 a year —that two drinks
a flay cost $73 a year—that three drinks a
flay cost $109.50 a year—and that five
drinks, which I am sure 1 have often ta
ken year in ami year out, cost $182,50 a
year, and that I have done this or worse
for more years than I care to tell, the fig
ures stare me in the face and teil me that
lor half my working days 1 have been
toiling hard for the whisky makers and
Other bitter reflections come with these
facts. I have swallowed a good house and
! lot—l have gulped down a moderate-sized
i farm —two or three canal boats —a drove
I of horses and mules, and harness enough
: to till a saddler's shop. And what do you
j think I got for helping the whisky men
:to all this? Why I'll tell you, several
; times, when my money was all gone, I
| was told, " Get out of this, you d—d drunk
" Oh! but," says a fine gentleman who
has brandy bottles at home or a barrel of
whisky in his cellar, " you had no busi
ness to get drunk ; I don't go to such pla
ces." That's fine talk, my good fellow,
but I am not sure you always go to bed
sober. And besides, your son goes to such
places if you don't, aye, and gets drunk
too behind your back. Talk like this
won't pass any longer. Men like you put
temptation in our road in almost every
square. Your legislators do it, your courts
do it, your lawyers do it, your jurors do
it. and because we have our failing in not
being able to resist the evil you putin our
way, you turn round and curse us. Take
the saw logs out of your own eyes, you
self-important gentlemen, before 3-011 ask
us to remove our rafters.
\\ e want willing hands to help us out
of the mire. We have tried to keep out
of the way, but 30U will put it before us
where we can't help seeing it, and where
obi associations are constantly beckoning
us to come in and take a drink. If we
cannot resist, that one drink is our ruin,
for every bod - knows that when a good
resolution is once broken, it don't take
much to break it ten times over. I sa3 T
wipe out every tavern that is agropshop.
Let those who keep them go to work as
wo do, and they can make a living with
out selling whisky. And wipe out all
them places called saloons and beershops.
I tell you they are the devil's own dens,
where hell delights in. I believe firmly
if hell was to hold a council in order to
put down the teinperancers, some Sl3'
devils would be selected to creep about a
parcel of men in this town and now and
then whisper in theirears, "Keep a saloon
—you needn't work half as hard as you do,
and it pays!" Like suckers, these fellows
first nibble at the bait, then take it and
are caught. When that is done, the
devil s work is done, just as he knows
iie's got us safe in his net if lie gets us to
take one drink. At first the chap goes to
work in his saloon honestly; he goes to
church, and says what a pity it is fellows
like us spend all our money for drink!
But church-goiug don't last long—he
thinks the preacher hit him, and he's not
a going to stand it. Temperance is poli
tics, and lie's opposed to have it in ]>oli
ties. So the little devil who has got to
be bis guardian angel whispers to him.
Next the little devil insinuates that it is
no harm to keep a little whisky aud bran
dy—so many ask for it, and if they don't
got it from him they'll get it somewhere
else, and besides there's profit in it! Af
ter that tlie little devil can leave—bis
work is done—the sucker is hooked—and
from that time forward whisky selling is
a right and a dut3*, and if men get drunk,
spend their money, and leave their wives
and children in nakedness and jiovertv
what is it to him?
