Of the Penna. State Temperance Convention.
FrLLOw Citizens : The Temperance Con

resolution adopted by the State Temperance
Convention, on the 27th of January last, to

any Bill" acceptable "to the friends of Prohi-
bition." All that they attempted was a mod-
iScation of the license law, a measure the
practical utility ot wnicn is to De tested, dui
the inadequacy of which to remove the giant
evil of the rum trafic is not a matter of con-
jecture or doubt. . For more than one hundred
and fifty years, the experiment has been tried
in every form which legislative wisdom could
devise to render the license system safe; to
make it a source of revenue, and yet guard I
against the blighting, desolating evils which I
follow in its train. How impotent and abor- j
live these effects have proved, the history of
the past sadly and conclusively shows. It J
would seem that wise legislators and States- j
men might easily have seen in the light of the Common Council of Springfield asserted that
past, the impracticability of divorcing the le- a diminution of thirty per cent . of crimes, such
galized trafic in ardent spirits. If a fountain as assaults, larceny, disturbance of the peace,
was sending forth poisonous streams, they &c, had been one of the fruits of their Pro
would regard it as an insult to their intc-lli- hibitory Law. Hon. Amasa Walker states
gence if legislation should be asked by which
the rills and the rivulets should be divested of j
their hurtful, deadly power. If the Bohon
Upas tree were sending forth its noxious exal-
ations, producing disease here; and death J
there, they would regard it as worse than tri
fling to top on its outer orancnes and nip m
the bud its poisonous ower, while its roots
were permitted to remain firm and flourishing.
We are not forgetful of the Apostolic injunc-
tion, "not to speak evil of dignities," but
there is no divine precept forbiding us to pray
that our ruiers may be endowed with more wis-
dom than they have sometimes evinced. With
the blessing of Heaven, and the combined ef-
forts of the friends of Prohibition, wemean
that men shall be elected to the next Legisla- empty whether our fifteen thousand grog
ture, who will put forth earnest -and resolute shops and lager beer saloons shall continue to
efforts; purify the fountain, men, who will cx-
tripate the Bohon Upas, root and branch, and
cut it into the fire. The legalized traffic in
ardent spirits with the ten thousand appalling
facts proving its cruel devastations, is an in
suit to the intelligence of the people and a
flagrant wrong upon their sacred, inalianablo
rights. It is time to say with an inflexible
determination, "if men will engage in this de-
structive trafic, if they will stoop to degrade
their reason and reap the wages of iniquity,
they shall no longer have the law book as their
pillow, nor quiet their conscience by the opiate
of a court license."
It is readily conceded in regard to most im
pending social evils, that society has the right
of self protection. It is the right of society
to protect itself against burglars, incendiaries
and midnight assassins. It is her right to pro-
tect herself against tainted meat, spoiled pro-
visions, unwholesome odors, short weights and
measures,and the storeage of gunpowder. Xow
if the promiscuous sale of intoxicating drinks
is infinitely more fatal to its peace and happi-
ness than all these '.. combined, can there be a
doubt that it is constitutionally right and just,
fo restrain and suppress such a trafic ? The
Supreme Court of. the United States have set- I
tied: this question definitely and forever
Chief Jnstice Taney says: "I see nothing in
the Constitution of the United States to pre- I
vent any State from regulating and restraining
the liquor trauiof or from prohibiting., it alto
gether, if it thinks proper.", Mr. Justice M't
Lean says A ' auisince may be abated. A
State may in the exercise of that great and 1
comprehensive police power, which is at the
foundation of its . prosperity, prohibit the sale
of ardent spirits." , Mr.' Justibe Catron says:
"If the State bus the power of restraint by li
cense to any extent, she has the discretionary
power to judge of its limit, aad go the length
of prohibiting it altogether, if such be its pol
icy." This testimony, so plain, explicit and
unequivocal, is all the reply we need to make
to those who insist that a Prohibitory Law is
The necessity of such a law is to be speedily
and energetically proved, by the record of our
criminal courts, by the throngs of inebriates
conS.-ied in our' prisons, by the burdensome
taxes to' feed and clothe the victims of intem
perar.ee, by the tears of orphans and the wail
of widows,uiade such by this fell destroyer.
This great moral and social reform which it is
our object to secure, is not an unknown and
untried experiment. It is, in several of the
States a fixed fact, vindicating itself by its
wholesome and beneficent influence, pouring a
tide of blessings upon thousands of families,
and protecting the young, the inexperienced
and the exposed, from the gins and snares
whicli the rapacity of avarice would spread in
their way. The Mayor of Augusta, Maine, six
months alter the enactment of a Prohibitory
Law, said : "The police were usually called
out one hundred nights in the year ; since the
enactment of the law they have not been call
ed out once!" Professor Stone makes the
following statement "In a farming town of
Maine of 2,400 inhabitants, there were eigh
teen dram-bhops. - All but four were volunta
rily closed, on the passage of the law. These
continued open until the magistracy laid its
hand upon them, seized all their liquors, and
poured it upon the ground. They were now
without the trafic and their pauper tax, which
the year previous was ffercn hundred dollars,
was reduced to three hundred. The inhabi
tants met : they had by this operation cleared
eight hundred dollars, and they resolved to add
six hundred to their school fund, and reserve
two hundred to prosecute unscrupulous men
who should feloniously attempt to fasten upon
thein the evils from which they had just es

application of the law to the single city of

each cf these families five cords of wood, five
barrels of flour, and ?S0 worth of clothing,
and then have a surplus sufficient to build fifty
dwelling-houses at $C0O each, five meeting
houses at 2,000 each, twenty school-houses
The Rev. .Mr. Hadly of Portland, says: One
hundred dollars will accomplish more for the
moral improvement of the poor than a thou
sand could during the reign cf alcohol." It
has been said, that more liquor is now used in
Maine than before the law was enacted. Bos-
ton liquor dealers make a very different repre
sentation. One of this class, in reply as to
their trade in liquor in Maine .said: "We used
to have three hundred customers from Maine,
who each traded with us from five hundred to
three thousand dollars per year; but now,1
said he, "all Maine is not worth having.''
In Massachusetts and Vermont, the same
general effects have resulted from the suppres
sion of the liquor trafic. A member of the
that "crime has been lessoned three-fourths,
and pauperism in a corresponding ratio" in
those places where the law has been fully ex
ecuted. In Vermont two common jails have
been tenantless ander the benign influence of
a Prohibitory Law, and have been advertised
Now, it is for the people in our great and
noble commonwealth to decide whether we
shall be participants of like blessings, or re-
main under the dynasty and curse of rum
whether our youth shall be protected, or fall
victims to the fell' destroyer whether our
poor tax shall become more burdensome or be
reduced one-half to two-thirds whether our
prisons shall be crowded or be comparative! v

erty or plenty, domestic broils or contented

ng or blessing, sorrow or joy, weal or woe,
shall be in the aseendent. It is, we say, for
the people, in their majesty and niight to de
cide these momentous issues. If thev aav.
that "mm and ruin" shall be perpetuated, so
it will be. But will they thus say 1 Ten thou
sand voices from hill and dale, from cities and
towns, from the valliesand the njpuntain tops,
give au emphatic response no, XO!
How, then, shall the needful reform be at
tained ? This question is of vast and vital iin-
portance. The answer, however, is brief and
conclusive. We must cast away our party ties
and predilections so far as they interfere with
a combined and yigorous effort to elect men to
the Legislature who are pledged to give their
influence and untiring efforts for the accom-
plishment of this the most important reform of
the age. . The friends of temperance cannot in
truth and candor be charged with precipitating
this subject into polieies. They have anxi-
ou&ly and earnestly endeavored to avoid this
issue. ;" Bnt the course persisted in by' the last
Legislature in spite of entreaty and respectful
remonstrance, has left them no other alterna-i
tive. It was a small favor assuredly that we
asked, that a moderate, judicious Prehibitory
Law should be passed, and the great question
of its repeal should be submitted to a popular
vote. , If this most reasonable proposition had
been acceded. to3 this Convention would not
have been called, and no steps would have been
taken to select a temperance ticket. But the
majority of our representatives refused this
small boon. They chose to do as tliey have
done before, to disregard the known wishes of
their constituents, and perpetuate the liquor
traffic. They have acted their pleasure. It
is our pleasure to select true men, faithful
men, who will care more for principle than par
ty, more for the people that the favor and pa
tronage of rumsellers. The work before us is
plain, and by concert and energy may easily
be accomplished. It is not our object to elect
Whie-s or Democrats, or Natives, but men of
sound temperance principles to whatever poli
tical party they may belong. We counsel our
friends, therefoie, in those localities 'where a
Democrat of known fidelity to the principles
of temperance is most likely to succeed, to
give him their united and vigorous support.
So in regard to Whigs, or members of the
American partv. We are satisfied with any
class of men whatever may be their party pre
dilections, who will pledge themselved to sus
tain and carry through a Prohibitory Law.
A word in regard to the popular vote provi
ded for by the last Legislature, to be "consid
ered as the prayer of the voters of this Com
monwealth relative to a Prohibitory Liquor
Law." It is not our business to discos the
wisdom of this enactment. Suffice ic to say
it is on the statute book of the State, and re
quires a response at our hands. The Conven
tion after much discussion and mature delib
eration resolved to urge upon the friends of
Prohibition to vote upon the question present
ed by the Legislature. Theyssay it shall be
"considered the prayer of the. voters relative
to a Prohibitorv Law." This recommenda
tion may seem to be in conflict with the ac
tion of the State Temperance Convention in
January last. But a change of circumstances
justifies and requiiesa change in our tactics
when no principle is involved. There cannot
be the slightest donbt that a large majority
can be secured against the liquor trafic, if the
friends of Prohibition are united, resolute and
untiring. We can show a majority of fifty
thousand at least in our favor if the thing is
entered upon with a determination to succeed.
With such a result,we m iv safely anticipate the
speedy triumph of our cause. We earnestly
implore our friends in every part of the State
to gird on the temperance armor, and put forth
their best efforts to secure the full triumph of
our principles. If we sutler diversity of views
to divide our strength and cripple ourendeav
ors ; if by any means our opponents should
have a majority of votes, it would be proclaim--ed
and received as a popular verdict against our
course, and no explanation or protest we could
make, would remove the impression from the
public mind. We hist vote then or endan
ger and seriously iniure the important inter
ests with which we are entrusted. With a
vote, such as we are able to cast, a Prohibitory
Law will not long be delayed. We earnestly
appeal to men of all classes, conditions and
creeds, to lend us a hclpins; hand. The ene
my whom we assail is alike the enemy of all.
He winks at widows sighs and orphans tears,
robs the poor, tramples upon the weak, and
slays his infatuated victims on every side
Wherever he goes, devastation and ruin mark
his path. He is arrayed against God and good
ness, and no efforts should be spared to drive
him from the habitations and walks of men.
Then a song of jubilee shall go up, and pro
ciamation shall be made that truth, and right
eousness, and peace have triumphed over er
ror, wrong and strife.

Harrisburg, June 7th, 1854.
Speaking of bed-bugs, a friend of ours who
put up at the Kalamazoo House, tells the fol
lowing ' strong one :"
"You see, I went to bed pretty allfired used
up, after a hull day on the old road before the
plank was laid, calealatin on a good snooze.
Waal, just as the shivers began to ease off, I
kinder felt sutheiv tryin' to pull off my shirt
and diggen their feet into the small of my back
to get a good hold. Wiggled and twisted, a
twisted, and doubled and puckered all no
use. Kept agoin' it like sin. Biemby got up
and struck a light to look round a .spell found
about a peck of bed-bugs scattered around,
and more droppin off my shirt and runnin
down my shirt every minit. Swept off a place
on the floor, shook out a quilt, lay down and
kivered up for a nap. Is o use mounted right
on me, like a passel of rats in a meal tub. Dug
a hole in the kiver lid, and crawled through
and give me fits for tryin' to hide. Got up agin,
went down stairs and got the slush bucket
from the wagon. Brought it up and made a
circle of tar on the floor lay down on the floor
on the inside, and felt comfortable that time,
any how. Left the light bnrnin' and watched
era. See 'em get together and have a camp
meetin' 'bout it, and then they went off in a
squad, with an old grey headed he one at
the top, right up the wall, out on the ceiling,
till they got to the right spot, then dropped
right plump into my face. Fact by thunder.
"Waal, I swept 'em up again and made a
circle ot taf on ihe ceiling too. Thought I had
'em foul, that time ; but I swan to man, if they
didn't pull straws out of the bed, and build a

They say the Senate is likely to pass the
Homestead bill, and, though we receive the ti
dings with much distrust, we shall very pladly
be brought to believe them. Often in the
world's history the worst rulers or legislators
have decreed or enacted the most wholesome
measures sometimes on the heel of their
most objectionable deeds. And surely the
Senate, ought to realize that some act of spe
cial beneficence and popularity on its part
could never be more timely than now.
Next to the Main Law, we regard the Home
stead bill as the great legislative antidote to
the fearful tendency of our time to a deluge of
Pauperism. As Population increases, lands
rise in market or cash value, and hence, while
Products ar3 enhanced in pric:;, the producer
finds his employment and his waes diminish,
while his rent and food grow dearer.
Hence the weak and inefficient find the battle
for subsistence groiwng centum illy harder and
harder with them; their seasons of unavoidable
idleness grow longer and longer; their savings
in better times, scanty at best, dwindle to in
significencejand Society, iu the midst of its
helpless and bankrupt members continudly
increasing in number; gaunt Famine crouch
iug aud skuking among warehouses bursting
with Grain and Meat, and rags and nakedness
huddling and shivering among the factories
which are glutting the market of the world
Now the Homestead bill will not of itself
fullv counteract this tendency of our aje to
Social paradox; but it will be a great step in
the right direction. It will not give a firm
and an independent home to every city vagrant
or village loafer; but it will diminish these
classes by drawing off to the' new lands the
more active, energetic, hopeful class who now
stand between these and employment. Those
whose need i3 greatest will never go to Min
nesota or Nebraska and there hew out for
themselves farms from the unsubdued prairie
or forest ; but many of our present woodsaw
yers, crtmen and laborers, whofind the
ways of the City too hard for them, will
be allured by Frje Lands to the West, and
give place here to those who need places as
well as almost everything else. Even though
the Free Homes were but forty acres each, in
stead of one hundred and sixty, they would
draw away many who can somehow reach the
West and get a living when there, but who can
not conveniently pay even fifty dollars for a
'place whereon to stand.'
But more even than this do we prize the
Homestead bill as a discouragement to Land
Speculation. Lofs,and water-fronts, and mill
privileges, may still be clutched; but it can
hardly be profitable to buy up thousands of
acres of merely tillable prairie or forest in or
der to extract a large price for it from settlers,
when each of those settlers can have a quarter-section
of unocupied laud for nothing.
True, this act should and does prohibit the
the sale of Public Lands to any but actual set
tlers, and even to these but a reasonable area
for each should be allowed ; but we shall be
very glad to obtain a half-measure from this
Congress. Give us what this bill concedes,
and wc can use it to secure more hereafter.
We trust nay, we are sure that the earnest
champions of the Homestead bill in the Senate
will spare no etTort to secure its passage during

Thunder claps are the effect of lightning,
which cans:; a vacuum in the atmosphere
through which it passes ; the air rushing in to
restore tbo equilibrium, may cause much of
the noise which is heard in the clap. An easy
experiment on the air pump illustrates this.
Take a glass receiver open at both ends, over
one end tie a sheep's bladder, wet, and let it
stand until thoroughly dry. Then place the
open end on the plate of the air-pump and ex
haust the air slowly from under it. The blad
der soon becomes concave, owing to the pres
sure of atmospheric air upon it, the support
ing air in the receiver being partly thrown out.
Carry on the exhaustion, and the air presses at
the rate of fifteen pounds to the square inch.
The fibres of flic bladder being no longer able
to support the pressure of the atmospheric co
lumn upon the receiver, are torn to pieces
with a noise eqaul to the report of a musket,
which is occasoned by the air rushing in to re
store the eqilibrium. Imagine a rapid suc
cession of such experiments, on a large scale,
ane you have the peal of thunder, the rupture
of the first bladder being the clap. But the

Our boat stopped to take in wood. On the

pid fellow, with his nnder lip hanging down.
A dandy, ripe for a spree, tipped nods and
winks all about, saying "now I'll have some
fun; I'll frighten the greenhorn." He jumped
ashore with a drawn bowie knife, brandishing
it in the face of the green one, exclaiming,
"now I'll punish you, I've been looking for
you for a week." The fellow stared stupidly
at the assailant. He evidently had not sense
enough to bo scared; but . as the bowie . knife
came near his face, one of his huge fists sud
denly vacated his pocket and fell hard and
heavy between the dandy's eyes, and the poor
fellow was floundering in the Ohio. Greeny
jumped on board the boat, his hands in his
pockets and looked around. "May be" said
he "there's somebody else here that's been,
