THE WINE QUESTION IN SOOIETY.
It is universally admitted among
sensible and candid people that
drunkenness is: the great curse of our
social and national life. It is not
characteristically. American, for the
same may be said with greater em
phasis of the social and national life
of Great Britain; . but it is one of
those things about which there is no
dohbt. Cholera and small-pox bring
smaller, fatality, and almost infinite
ly smaller sorrow. There are fathers
and mothers, and sisters and wives,
and innocent and wondering chil
dren, within every circle that em
braces a hundred lives, who grieve
to-day over some hopeless' victim of
the seductive destroyer. In the city
and in the country—North, East,
South and West—there are men and
women who cannot be trusted with
wine in their hands—men and wo
men who arc conscious, too, that
they . are goinr , 'to destruction, and
who have ceased to fight an appetite
that has the power to transform eve
ry soul every home it occupies
into a hell. Oh, the wild prayers
for help that go up from a hundred
thousand despairing slaves of strong
drink to-day ! Oh, the shame, the
disappointment, the fear, the disgust,
the awful pity, the mad protests that
rise from a hundred thousand homes!
And still the smoke of the everlast
ing torment rises, and still we dis
cuss the " wine question," and the
" grape culture," and live on as if we
had no share in the responsibility
for so much sin and shame and suf
Society bids us furnish wine at our
feasts,. and we ,furnish it just as gen
erously as if we did not know that a
certain percentage of all the men who
drink it will die miserable drunkards,
and inflict lives of pitiful suffering
upon those who are closely associat
ed with them. There are literally
hundreds of thousands of people in
polite life in America who would not
darn to give a dinner, or a party,
without wine, notwithstanding the
fact that in many instances they can
select the very guests who will drink
too much on every occasion that
gives them an opportunity. There
are old men and women who invite
young men to their feasts, whom
they know cannot drink the wine
they propose to furnish without dan
ger to themselves and disgrace to
their companions and friends. They'
do this sadly, often, but under the
compulsions of social usage. Now,
we understand the power of this in
fluence ; and every sensitive Man
must feel it keenly. Wino has stood
so long as an emblem and represent
ative of good cheer and generous
hospitality, that it seems stingy to
shut it away from our festivities, and
deny it to our guests. Then again
it is so generally offered at the tables
of our friends, and it is so difficult,
apparently, for those who are accus
tomed to it to make a dinner with
out it, that we hesitate to offer water
to them. It has a niggardly--almost
an unfriendly seeming.; yet what
shall a man do who wishes to throw
what influence ho has on the side of
The question , is nok new. It' has
been up' for an answer every year
an ()Very moment since men thought
or Walked about temperance at all.
We know of but one answer to. make
to it. A man cannot, without stulti
fying and morally debasing himself,
tight in public that which he tole
rates in private. We have heard of
such things as writing temperance
addresses with a demijohn under the
table ; and society has learned by
heart the old talk against drinking
too much—" the excess of the thing,
you know "—by those who have the
power of drinking a little, but who
would sooner part with their right
eye than with that little. A man
who talks temperance with a wine
glass in his hand is simply trying, to
brace himself so that he can hold. it
without shame. We do not deny
that many men have self-control, or
that they can drink wine through
life without suffering, to themselves
or others. It may seem hard that
they should bo deprived of a comfort
or a pleasure because others are less
fortunate in their temperament or
their power of will. But the ques
tion ib whether a man is wiring to
sell his power to do good to a great
multitude for a glass Of wine at din

TOWANDA, BRADFORD COUNTY, PA.,\ AUGUST 1,1872.
What we need in our metropolitan
society is a declaration of independ
ence. There are a great many good
num and women in New York who
lament the-drinking habits of society
most sineerely. Let these all declare
that they will minister no longer at
the social altars of the great destroy
er. Let them declare that the indis
criminate offer of wine at dinners
and social assemblies, is not only
criminal but vulgar, as it undoubted
ly is. Let them declare that for the
sake of the-young, the weak, the vi
cious—for the sake of personal char
acter, and family peace. and social
purity, and national strength—they
.discard wine from their feasts
from this time forth and forever, and
the work will be done. Let them
declare that it is vulgar—as it =de
niably is—for a man to quarrel with
his dinnerbecause his host fails to
furnish wine. This can be done
now, and it needs to .be done now,
for it is becoming every day more
difficult to do it.. The habit of wine
drinking at dinner is quite prevalent
already. European travel is doing
much to make ituniversal; and if we
go on extending it at the present
rate, we shall soon arrive at the Ea-
Tope= indifference JO the whole sub
ject. There are many clergymen in
New York who-have wine upon their
tables and who furnish it to their
guests. We keep no man's conscience,
but we are compelled to say that the •
sell influence at a shamefully cheap
rate. Whdt can they do in the great
fight with - this tremendous evil ?
They can do nothing, and are count
ed upon to do nothing.
If the men and women of good so
ciety wish to have less drinking to
eicess, let them stop drinking mode
rately. If they aro not willing to
break off the indulgence •of a feeble
appetite for the sake of doing a great
good to a great many people, how
can they expect a poor, broken-down
wretch to deny an appetite that is
stronger than the lose of wife and
children, and• even life itself ? The
punishment for the failure to do du
ty in this business is sickening to
contemplate-. The sacrifice of life
and peace and wealth will go -on.
Every year young men will rush
wildly to the devil, middle-aged men
will booze away into apoplexy, and
old men will swell up with the sweet
poison and become disgusting idiots.
What will become of the women?
We should think they had suffered
onongh from this evil to hold it in
everlasting ban, yet there are drunk
en women as well as drinking cler
gymen. Society, however, has a great
advantage in the fact that it is vulgar
for a woman to drink. There are
some things that a woman may not
do, and maintain her social standing.
Let her not quarrel with the fact
that society demands more of her
than it does of men. It is her safe
guard in many ways.—Dr. J. G. Hol

BINGIUMTON, Slily 20.—The pledge
of the managers 'of the Binghamton
&publican is at last' redeemed, and
the groat conspiracy of Greeley, Sey
mour, and Hutchins, is proven to the
world. The "challenge" of twenty
daynstanding direct to the trio has
failed to call forth a denial. Ono
charge was that' Horace Gregley
agreed in October, 1871, on his own
behalf, to be a candidate for Preei
dent if Horatio Seymour and the
Democratic leaders would support
him, and that he held a correspond
ence on that subject; that Mr. Gree
ley formally recognized his agree
ment, and communicated the fact of
the Democratic proposition to Reu
ben E. Fenton, who consented , to
give assistance . to the scheme; that
Horatio Seymour subsequently
agreed to give his support condition
ally; that he communicated to Waldo
Hutchings on this subject in refer
ence to the Cincinnati convention,
and that Seymour acknowledged the
correspondence with Hutchings in a
letter dated May-1, 1872, three days
before the Cincinnati convention;
that Hutchins responded, and be
came a delegate to that convention;
that the fact of Democratic coalition
was well understood by some of the
delegates to that convention; and
_that the expectation of Democratic
support secured Mr. Greeley's nom
ination. The disclosures show that
Lewis Carmichael, of Unadilla, New
York, is the originator of the move :
ment which made Mr. Greeley the
Cincinnati and Baltimore nominee.
Ho wrote to Mr. Greeley last Sep=
I tember, giving his views about the
coming campaign, and invited him
to become a camlitlate. Carmiclacl's
letter was addresscil inside to Hon.
Horace areeley, the next President
of the United States. He told Mr.
Greeley the time had come "to raft
over." Mr. Greeley expresscd his
willingness to beeen..: a candidate,
but feared, the Democrat;:. leaders
would not support him. He invited
Carmichael by letter to an interview.
He accordingly went to New York
and had a long talk with Mr. Gree
ley in the tribune. office when Mr.
Greeley told Carmichael that Sev
-mour was a standing candidate with.
the Democratic party, and that Sey
mour would not stepaside for him.
Carmichael replied that Governor
Seymour-had not been consulied,mad
had not said what_ he would do.
Carmichael then offered to undertake
to secure Seymour's' consent and co
operation to the movement, arid Mr.
Greeley agreed to become a candi
date if Seymour and other prominent
Democrats would endorse him.
Carmichael saw Seymour, who Was
first inclined unfavorably to the pro
ject. - He soon saw Seyreour again
by appointment, and said he, ‘.‘Sey.;'
molar, had concluded that Carmich
-eel was right, and that the Demo
crats could support Greeley." Car
michael soon informed. Greeley of his
success with Seymour andwent about
the State immediately to consult with
the Democratic leaders.
(For tho rarOUTEII]
Carmichael, in the accounts tele
graphed from Binghamton, describes
interviews which he had. with Hors-
tio Seymour and other leading Dem
ocrats, all of whom approved the in
trigue to make Greeley the Demi
cratic candidate for, President, and
covenanted to do all in their power
to secure his nomination. In corrob

principles, to drop those, principles
and rush into each -other's arms for
the sake of the spoils,- show a most
despertiO , love. of office on both sides.
Tb#Main difference of principles-:--
accepting their platforin as-sincere—
between the Republicans and Demo
crats is on the Ku-klux question.
The Republicans hold it to be the .
-highest duty of the General Govern
ment, to secure to the poorest and
and most humble citizen all his
rights—provided, the local or State
Government fella to do so. Up to
within six months, Mr. Greeley was
the most strenuous advocate of this
principle. He now takes the back'
track. He now argues with the Nul
lifiers of Jackson's dap and with the
Rebels of our day that each State is
sovereignin all domestic : affairs, and
that the Nation has no right to in
terferewith any'violation of common
or statute. laws. They would there
fore allow the Ku-klux-klans to re
new their devilish schemes, and if
the Rebels in power in the States
did nothing to protect the Unionists,
the latter must suffer hopelessly, for
Congress cannot protect them. This
is the old States rights scheme new
ly .applied—the old heresy on which
they began the war, enddrsed by H.
G.—the very manner in which the
Rebels might begin to resurrect slav
ery as they did when encouraged by
Andrew Johnson's treason—the very
way in which the Rebellion could. he
again commenced. To stop Rebellion,
11. G. would be as feeble and as we
manish as Aunt Sally Buchanan was.
-To ensure the re-,election of our
President—who would do more to
prevent 11 ,, bellion and preserve peace
than a thousand Greeleys would—
we'rnast ha've the last vote polled in
Bradford county and in Pennsylva
nia. The voice of Pennsylvani j i is

in no danger of any uncertainty. • In
some counties, factions have created
some disturbances which will require
a fall united vote, elsewhere to carry
the October election. Our best,
strongest men should be put upon

perhaps, is. nceessary.: , - but a deter
mination on the part of evey Repub

We know, of course, that Ireland
: is called the " Emerald Isle," and the
color of the emerald 'is green ; but
, never bad it entered into our imagi
nation that there was anywherelin
the world to be seen such verdure as
it charmed our to look uponin
the rural districts of Ireland. r The
elopes, the knolls, the dells, fields Of

creep like playful spirits of the beau
tiful ; the pastures dotted with whitt,,
sheep of the purest Wool ; the hill
sides rising np into mist-shrouded
mountains, and all covered with
thick carpets of smooth, velvety
green. But Ireland should also be
called the Flowery Isle. There is
not a spot in Ireland, I believe,where
blessed nature can find an excuse for
putting a flower, but she has, put one
—not only in the gardens and in the
meadows, but upon the very_ walls
and the crags of the sea, from the.
great rhododendrons down to the
smallest flower that modestly peeps
forth from_ its grassy cover. The
Irish furze so richly yellow,covers all
places that might otherwise be bare
or barren ; the silk worm delights
everywhere, from thousands of trees,
to draw its web of gold ; the 'bloom
ing hawthorn, with the sweet-eocnt
ed pink, and especially the white va
riety, adorns the landscape and gar
den ; wall flowers of every hue and
variety clamber to hide the harsh
ness of the mural - supports ; •the bee
