That intemperance is the greatest moral
social and political evil, that ever afflicted
the world needs no demonstration here.—
The intemperate man violates all laws both
human and divine ; and rushes headlong to
distraction, uncalled fir and cutting off all
prospects for eternity. There is a great
work for all of a to perform. A special
work, which should be done now. A work
in which every person can engage in. A
work which can never be done better than
at the present time. This great national
curse must be fought and conquered. The
power of the strong drinking interest must
be met and battled with. The putting down
of intemperance, and the reformation of
the drunkard, is the object ef our organisa
tion, and a worthy cause is that in which
wo are engaged in. Every person should
be found engaged in this laudable work, and
set a good example by abstaining from the
use of strong drink. How full of hope,
then in visions of peace, temporal and spir
itual on earth, with the speedy triumph of
the right, in this nineteenth oentuary, then
things and men's actions would be based
upon the laws of divine order, and the im
perishable principles of universal love, jus
tice and fraternal sympathy towards each
other. Temperance, while it destroys the
worthless, constructs the better, builds wiser,
conserving the good and beautiful, grapples
with the great giant, intemperance, and re
&Baena the lost independence of run. It
demonstrates to him immortality, and that
tie is not a beast. But on the oontrary that
he bath been "created by God upright and
a little lower than the angels." Its watch
words*. Progression. Itunderliee the 'flight
iest movements of the age, and its destiny is
certain victory. If by abstaining from the
use of intoxicating drinks any of us can
prevent ono friend, or brother from becom
ing a drunkard, the aacrifioe on our part
will be worthy of the highest praise and
commendation. We should take the inebri
ate by the hand and with a warm heart,
look in his eyes and say, "brother, go sin
no more, be no more a slave to your appe
tite, but be a free man, God and the angels,
and all good men desire your freedom ;" and
then away down deep in the better nature
of that person thus addressed, is something
which tells him to strive to be a sober per
son again. It is from such slavery that we
should endeavor to save arui redeem our
fellow mortal. It is not because intemper
ance erects the gallows, and supplies it with
victim, or causes pauperism, and fills our
prisons with oonvicta, that it undermines
the social and civil institutions of our coun
try, entailing misery, horrid disease and
death upon us, have I learned to hate this
evil. It is became I now kink upon man as
having a great and noble nature. It is be
cause that I believe that the stamp of Di
vinity is about him, upon him and within
him. It is because in that mystery of mys
teries the human soul arc wrapped up odes•
[From the Benner of the South.]
Out of the shadow of sadness,
Into the sunshine of gladness,
Into the light of the Blest
Out of a land very dreary,
Out of the world of the weary,
Into the rapture of Rest.
Out of to-day's sin and sorrow
Into a blissful to-morrow,
Into a day without ;loom
Out of a land ailed with sighing—
Land of the dead and the dying—
Into a land without tomb.
Out of a life of commotion,
Tempest•swept oft u the ocean,
Dark with the wreck drifting o'er;
Into a land calm and quiet ;
Never a storm oometh nigh it ;
Never a wreck' on its shore.
Out of the land in whose bowers
Perish and fade all the dowers—
Out of the land of deesy—:.
Into tho Eden where fairest
Of now' rets—and sweetest and rarest
Never shall wither away.
Out of the world of the wailing,
Thronged with the anguished and ailing
Out of the world of the sad ;
Into the world that rejoices—
World of bright visions and voices,
Into the world of the glad.

tial and immortal capacities, and that I de
sire the unfolding and developing of these
tremendous powers, that I cannot bear to
see him brutalised or enslaved by himself or
soother. The question that now presents
itself to us is, can we not each and every
one of us exercise an influence over the so
cial circle we move in, by inducing some of
our acquaintances, already far gone in the
habit of intemperance, to renounce forever
the intoxicating cup, and thereby produce
the effect above suggested ; if so, what then
is our duty to our fellow man, it is to re
monstrate with him, against the practice of
indulging in the pernicious habit of drink
log spiritous liquors, and thereby exorcise
an soave influence in the promulgation of
correct principles in the mind of such er
ring brother. Has any of us ever thought
that if half the amount of intellectual and
physical energy, which we have given to
enterprises of infinitely lose importance, bad
been devoted to the cause of temperance, it
would no doubt in many eases been the
means of redeeming many poor inebriates
from their fallen condition. And if we have
never thought of this matter, nor acted in
the proper manner in regard m it, are we
not self convicted of being engaged with
matters of comparatively little importance,
while an enterprise of the greatest moment
to the human race has been left to pass un
noticed sod uncared for by us, and mankind
has offered on account of our omission of
duty to him.
Does our brothers of the ministry preach
and reason as frequently, pointedly, and
fervently of temperance, and the evils of
an intemperate habit, as they do of right
oneness and of judgment to come ? If they
do not they fail to fulfil the commands of
their great master. Does any of my hearers,
young in years, obey the voice of paternal
affection and admonition, which bids you to
beware of the delusive and dangerous temp
tation, presented daily by the gaudy splen
dor of the drinking saloon, heed their warn
ing voice, and avoid those treacherous places
which if frequented would in time probably
lead you to a death too terrible to be dee
cribed. It there a sister within the sound
of my voice, whose parents' hourly pray
ascends to heaven for your welfare, and are
you sufficiently thoughtful and obedient to
their loving admonitions, and do you wil
lingly receive the addresses of any young
man whose breath is tainted by the odors of
strong drink, if any such there be in our
assembly, to her I would my that by such a
course you are working out for yourself per
haps a future that will be strewn with all
the miseries that render life miserable, in
which perhaps may be seen the gloomy pic
ture of a comfortless borne, tenented with
hungry, half-clad and uneducated children,
fleeing from the violence of a drunken father
to the feeble anus of a trembling heart
broken mother. Let me warn you to be
ware and shrink from the pollution of such
as from a viper's touch. There is not the
least occasion fora man in health to use
liquor in any way, it does not render his
head more clear nor his footsteps more firm,
neither does it make him more industrious,
more useful or a more worthy member of
society, but on the contrary to be temperate
contributes to all these qualities. Intem
perance stalks into families, it invades the
domestic circle and looms up in every com
munity, it peoples the grave-yard with vic
tims, and recruits tLe armies of eternity
with souls lost; it breaks the hearts of pa
rents, blasts the hopes of children, gives
brothers to destruction and sisters to shame,
it hangs like an incubus upon labor and
robs industry of its reward, it is the great
source of pauperism, the foundation of
crime, and strikes at the root of religion,
and is utterly destructive of all Christian
principle. It overturns public tranquility
and social order.
What we have been endeavoring to con
sider and portray to you of the evils of in
temperanoe, as connected with and affect
ing the social affairs of life, are not those of
mere fancy, but an the contrary, they arc
sound unqualified facts, and the experience
of many have demonstrated their sad reali
ties. It is in the light of these reflections
that I raise my voice in behalf of that
Law Prohibition which is for a time feeble
in its effects, but which in time will be potent
in its strength, and thereby stay the pro
gress of the accursed thing," then will that
word of awful power spoken by the will of
the people "Unconstitutional" fall like a
dead bone upon the vender of intoxicating
drinks perhaps as I now address you, one
who has had a praying mother, a fond
tither, and a loving sister, gni a hip
py home, is dying far off in a distant
place, away down in some obscure cellar,
dark and damp, and deep, amid rags and
filth, and foul corruption, curses, blasphe
mies and horrid oaths of abandoned women;
you will find this once noble young man.—
The hamd of death is upon him, the hot
fever of delerium is passing through his
brain, the foam of poison is upon his lips,
he groans, shrieks, and dies. Who is re•
sponslble for all this; is the question forced
home upon our hearts, and oonsoienoes
We ask the question and leave it for some
vender of intoxicating drinks, to answer
his oonscienoe and his God, who was the
cause of the death of this young person.—
But one matter more, and we are done.
There generally is a disposition upon the
pert of most people to abuse and ill treat
the poor inebriate, this is decidedly wrong;
true he has become a degraded specimen of
humanity, he is besotted because of his
beastly appetite, but the appetite has been
fed and goaded on by the vender of intoxi
cating Liquors, and such vender has been
permitted to pursue his fiendish busintwm,
with but little hlndemnee on the part of the
ohristian community, beyond an occasional
remonstrance. The drunkard Wen though
he be, is nevertheless our brother, and we
cannot avoid our responsibility by sayin,g
"am I my brother's keeper" but on the
contrary it is our duty to endeavor by all
propper means to do all we can to reform
him, and restore him to decency, to fimily
and society. This is one of the great ob
jects of our organization. The Good Tem
plars' principles are to "not only abstain
from what can intoxicate, but to prevail on
others to do so," and our secret is "to save
the drunkard, and make waste places glad
with hope and happiness again." We
should then go to the inebriate, holding in
our right hand the olive branch of peace,
and lifting the other towards that angel
realm musical with life and lime, prayerfully
asking the Father's ministering angels and
all the holy loved ones gone before, to look
down with compassion upon our fallen
brother, and grant him strength and resolu
tion enough to break the chains that bound
him I► slave to his appetite, and to find him
with spirit sufficient to become a man again,
and thereby Le the means of scattering
flowers along his pathway of life, and pre
paring him also to lead a purer and (Iris
tian like course preparatory to becoming a
pillar in that living temple of God that
knows no beginning nor ending of years,
then shall we have fulfilled our sacred duty
to our fellow mortals.
46 The Carpet—Banters.”
There is a class of political adventures
prowling through the South, watching their
chances to become Judges, Congressmen,
etc., of the new era. Of a large share of
them the remark is generally true—that
they bad nothing to loose at home, either
of character or credit, and the carpet-bag
they carry contains the sum total of their
effects. They are " truly loll" representa
tives of the Radical faction, and never hay
iag followed any honed pursuit, they are
sufficiently unscrupulous to carry out to the
letter the requirements of the political jun
ta under which they expect to flourish.
They talk loud on the excellence of giving
the ballot to the negro, but give him par
ticularly to understand, that with tome in
ferior exceptions, it will not do for him to
hold offices at present, lest it should injure
"the party." Great is the carpet-bagger,
and Radicalism is his profit. A looker-on
in the South sketches this class of adven
turers with peculiar richness. He writes:
" You find them everywhere. On the
cars, and in the towns, and priting about
in country places, and you can't take up a
paper, hardly, or hear a man speak, but
what there is something about the carpet.
bagger. Few know where they come from;
nobody knows how they live—perhaps
nothing but an itemised account of the se
cret service money of the Reconstruction
Committee of Congress could tell that—but
here they are bussing about like gad-flies
and seeking the weak points of the country
with the unerring.instinct of carrion crows.
Hounded out of the North for rascality—
for everywhere now and then some ugly
past is brought to light about them—they
seek and obtain employment in the cause
of Reconstruction and come South. Some
sworn into the Bureau, others foist them
selves on the Revenue, others again play
pimp and spy and call-boy for the service,
and outside of these, the great bulk sustain
life by taking up subscriptions from the
freedmen, and levying contributions for the
good of the party on enthusiastic Radicals
at the North. Like Jonah's gourd, they
spring up and flourish and We in a day,
descending from nowhere at daybreak and
ready ere night to run for Governor.
" I know one case, where, on the ap
proach of election, one of these gad-flies
came on the next day, announced himself
as a candidate, and, on the third day, was
" elected," and,now sits in a soverign con
vention to reconstruct a State. Still anoth
er ( . 42460 occurred, and it is susceptible to
verification on oath, where another of these
creatures, on his way to take his seat as a
" delegate," pawned his carpetbag to pay
expenses, and never coming to redeem it,
had said receptacle opened only to find
therein some Radical documents under Con
gressional frank and a few little personal ar
ticles, not worth, in all, over two dollars and
a half. Such is carpet-buggery, and just
fancy its beauties to yourself. You are a
Southern man, let us say, and sitting at
night-fill in some little country village, and
here, at dusk, there comes striding in a
strange man with a carpet-bag. That night
there is a Loyal League meeting, and the
next day, before noon, the strange man has
poked his noes into half the houses in towh,
knows everybody by name, and has a list of
all the negro voters in all the country round
about in his pocket. Pretty soon them
comes an election, and in the strange man,
whom you now begin to recogninees a " tier
pet-bagger," you see the judge at the polls.
As such he counts the votes, declares him
self " duly elected" to a convention some
where, and as the day of assembling ap
proaches takes up a collection among the
negroes sod departs—be and his oarpetleg.
For awhile you hear nothing of him, but
pretty soon it appears that he has framed a
SUde Constitution, and is coming book to
run fbr Congress. And here, after a few
days, he is again, some of the people's
money in his pocket, and a bran new suit of
clothes, at the post, in his carpetbag."
No man has been able to tide a clothes
horse with the " spur of a moment."
The True Democracy sad the
We have noticed in several of our ex
changes allusions to some wonderful and
mysterious agency, which, it is supposed, is
now being created and faustered in various
sections of the North as well as the South,
to help the Democracy of the wintry in the
coming contest. A terrible (l) and crushing
power; a Ku Klux combination of the mil
itary and the political, with a sprinkling of
the midnight•assessin thrown in, to lend
extra terror to the scheme. Some of the
country journals are dreadfully exercised ;
dropping startling and soul-harrowing hints
about the growth of this great and formida
ble order of patriots, whose secret meetings,
of the hatchet-of-horror character, are held
at the noon of night ; when the dissuasions
are blood and thunder; and sadden on
slaughts upon the enemy, as unexpected as
the lightning's bolt which comes from the
unseen cloud on a summer day. We see
certain credulous journals, the craniums of
whom conductors undoubtedly show immense
"love of the marvelous," catching at this
sort of stuff, and swallowing it.
Democracy is not supported or aided by
any snob machinery. The true Democrat is
no Jesuit. He wages oo secret war. He
participatesin no whispering midnight meet
ings held by a revolutionary cabal, nor fm
ternixes with mystical daylight organisations.
He plans no Guy Fewks explosions. He
never strikes his enemy in the book, or
pounces upon him from behind in the dark.
The true Democrat does none of this. The
Logos Democrats are usually prominent in
such undertakings. Your true Democrats
fight in broad midday, face to face with his
adversary. He matures hie plans through
firee and loud discussion. He holds his
counsilis with open doors, not in secret con
chive, like knawes who plot treason. He
is bold enough sad strong enough to &char
hie intentions like a man of courage and
honor, relying upon the righteous justice of
his cause ; and his good right arm, if that
cause, political, civil, or religious, is uncon
stitutionally assailed. Your true Democrat
hates intrigue and deception. He despises
signs and the dirty clap-trap machinery of
egeaking stratagem. His principles are
plain and simple, and can be easily main
tained by honor, honesty, reason, common
intelligence and manly courage. It is false
hood, treachery and crime—it is Jesuitism
—that needs those diabolical aids which are
only wrought out under the cover of se
crecy. The honest, the real Democracy of
this country require no bidden agencies to
enable them to cope with the miserable
horde of political vagabonds, rotten with
corruption, which they will meet at the
November polls. The real Democracy will
conquer this mass of decayed humanity by
the strength of right and the power of num
bers. Those Mongrels are not so utterly
stupid, sodden in crime and iniquity though
they be, as to fail to recognize the ultimatum
of that victory. We shall need no mysteri
ous agencies to enable us to entre at once
upon the great work of national reform.
The told beasts which have so defiled the
places of honor and trust they have occupi
ed, though not filled, know too well the
men they deal with, to resist the verdict of
the people. Disband your silly secret orga
nisations, Democrats ; your powder and ball
will not be needed. This is government of
opinion. Democracy is light, and peace,
and harmony, and progress upward and on
ward. Mongreliam is banes, and secret
sessions, and obwardiee, and assassination
of the weak. We shall see these cowards
tremble at the solid tramp of the sturdy
Northern Democracy toward the November
ballot boxes, and they will yield up the pow
er they have so disgracefully used, sod so
infamously abused for the past eight years,
With as much grace as the occasion calls for,
which, thank heaven, will be very little.—
All we shall ask of them is to go ; and go
they will. Away with your secret military
clap-trap. The voices of four millions of
earnest Democratic voters are more potent
in the conflict in which we are engaged in
than all the guns and cannon, powder and
ball in Christendom.
But, that those voices may be thus potent,
get up clubs which shall discuss freely, sod
with open windows and doors, our great
principles. Get Democratic. doeumenta.—
Employ Democratic speakers. Read Dem
ocratic journals. Procure Democratic pub
lioations. Circulate them through the
length sod bredth of the land. Let us go
into this faith strong in Democratic truths,
and we are invinceible. We need no other
weapons to-day.

The *swabHenn Party.
The new condition into which the Repub.
lioan party has passed requires, at our hands,
a careful examination. As it is organised
and led now, it is not only a very different
party from the Republican party of 1865,
1861, and during the miler years of the
war, but it differs widely from the organiza
tion of 1865 and 1867. It is to-day, under
the acknowledged leadership of Butler, Ste
vens, Logan Schenck and the military poli
ticians of the Grand Army of the Republic
Clubs, as avowed partisan body of men,
which teaches that fidelity to party" hi
the highest duty, not only of the people,
but of the representatives to whom the pea.
ple have delegated the administration of the
government. It is a very harsh thing to say,
that the Republican party and its represen
tative men hold obligations to the whole
people of the country, subservient to the
claims of a fraction of the community, but
it is true, and it should be said. The infa
mous teaching of Thaddeus Stevens has
brought the party to that condition of mind
when its members "have thrown conscience
to the devil, and stand by the party." Re
failed to effect this lad result in the Buck
shot War, but, now, the most fearful excess
crowns his efforts.
We moat now look upon the Republican
party as a purely partisan body, which will
be bound by no constitutions, and which will
respect no laws. The welfare of the coun
try, in the embittered minds of the zealots
of this party, is to be found only through
the successful application of mere party
measures, and all opposed to their plans,
schemes or principles so-called, will be look
ed upon by them as enemies of the country.
Treason, to their minds, will consist in op•
position to the Republican party, not in en
mity to the country, and all men will be con
sidered as Rebels who do not bow in obedi
ence to the commands of this body. The
kind of argument which has always been
held by intollerants in religion and politics,
can easily prove to their demised minds that
mere opinion is an act—that words are acts
and that a merely negative position is a men
acing offence. So we shall bo told that be
ing a Democrat, or anything othr than a Re
publican, in opinion is to be a seditious trai
tor to the people, and that the attempt to
put Democrats in office will be an endeavor
to subvert the government.
Are we making this argument stronger
than the condition of things will justify?—
Let us see. first. The Senators of the
United States sitting in a Court of Impeach
ment, under a judicial oath, have been told
that they must vote according to party dic
tation, and not in conformity to their sworn
duty. Second. The leading minds of the
Republican party—Trumbull Fessenden,
Henderson, Grimes, Chase and like men, in
the most insulting manner, have been de
nounced by great numbers of the party pres s
and party convention, for the simple reason
that they refused to listen to party dictation
and Third. We see Stevens, Ruder and
Logan, to whom the Republicans would not
listen a few months since in direct control
of the organisation. Their political and
personal character is well known, and can
make but one impression, and that is that
they will manage the party and the country
in the most unscroupulous manner to get
and to keep the party in power. Are all
the Republicans prepared to Mow them, or
have the old leaden, the power to carry a
large body of the party with them ? Must we
be compelled to admit that nearly one half
of the American people are false to Consti
tutional government and that they cannot
so far govern themselves, that the vile par
tizanship of the mind cannot be put aside
when the existence of the State is in danger?
Not one Republican in ten :will undertake in
argument to sustain the course his party Is
taking, and yet but fbw have, as yet, been
brave enough to come out of it, or bold
enough to oppose the Radicals who are now
directing its action. Perhaps we may see
some more satisfactory condition in their
minds when the impeachersksve shown their
position more plainly.
But in defkult of ordinary patriotism on
the part of the Republicans what must the
Democrats do ? Must they not rally to pre
serve the Constitution and the country?—
Will they not see that, everything must be
put aside which will draw them off from the
stern duty of preserving the liberties of the
people ? We Feel that they will do all that
should be done, and that in that greateffort
will the country be preserved and the vile
spirit of party faction be struck down. Let
every man, for himself, look the condition
of affidre filly in the Ike, and let his mind
receive the most decided impression of the
dangers, which threaten our liberties, that
he may determine to do his duty to pro.
tort the country form utter political destruc
tion. The struggle is on us in which we
must fight to preserve democratic institu
tions and we can euceesellilly fight if we use
the energies which we poems ; but if we kg
In our efforts we shall sudsy go down, and
the Republic will be no more.—Liowwe
Tito Working Poop &
The New York paintors report that the
eight hour system bas been adopted by near
ly all the employers, and in one shop the
journeymen are on a strike to secure it, The
Painters' Society Ls considering the proprie
ty of adopting a report about apprentiees,
requiring them to serve fire years as weekly
wages. The third year they are to mein
one-quarter the wages of journeymen, the
fourth year wages, and the fifth year NI
wages. Several laborers' strikes have oc
rred in New York, two ftfr an 'bunco of
wages, and one for the eight hour system.
The demands were refused in each ease, how
ever. The New York Carpenters report a
general acquiescence in their demand for $4
a day. Only one or two employers , refined
it. A number of New York coopers still re
main on a strike, and their employer having
heretofore got his barrels in country shops,
arrangements have been made to get the
workmen at them to strike also, unless those
shops refuse to supply him; The carvers
of Now York, mostly Germans, are contem
plating a strike for $3.50 a day. They now
receive an average of $3, and their trade
union numbers about five hundred members.
The masons in New York, now getting $4.50
a day, have demanded $5. A colony of New
York mechanics, last Tuesday started with
their families, to settle at Atchison Kansas.
They number nearly2oo persona The coal
beavers' atrik, at Jersey City, continue:P * Bnd
there has been some rioting, arising from
attempts to prevent new bands from going
to work. A large pollee force is at the Jer
sey City coal docks to preserve order, and
severel arrests have been made. The strike
at Prospect Park, Brooklyn, of eight hun
dred laborers, for $2 a day, continues, the
Park Commissioners reflusing the increase
demanded. The Mahoning Valley, Obio,
over a thousand coal miners have struck for
an increase of 20 cents per ton in their wages.
The brick moulders and their laborers, at
Louisville, Kentucky, ore on strike for high
er wages. The moulders ask an increase
from $3 a day (the present rate) to $3.50
and the laborers from $2 (the present rate)
to $2.25. In Washington the plasterers'
strike is nearly ended, the employers hay.
ing generally acceded to the demand. The
Edgfield Cotton Factory, in Connecticut,
has stopped work for the present At Erie
Pa., the coal-beavers have struck for higher
wages, and work is at a stand still. It is
announced that one-sixth of the population
of San Francisco is out of employment,
and all accounts from California are dis
couraging to those who intend to emigrate
there. The excessive emigration has al
ready more than supplied the demand for
labor. At Windsor, Vermont, it is said
that seventy-five of the penitentiary prison
ers are employed in making scythe soothes,
and make ten thousand annually. This is
complained of as a serious interference with
the regular trade. At Elgin, Illinois, in a
match factory, where 250 persons are em
ployed, one-half are women. Females are
gradually working their way into this trade.
New York, three women have formed a
partnership as designers and engravers on
wood, and advertise for business. The gen
eral strike at Bologne, in Daily, continues,
and all the trades are engaged in it. Bug
nose is said to be at a stand still This is a
strike against taxation more than low wages,
though the latter is the moving cause for it.
In Austria great discontent is said to be pre
vailing among the working classes, owing to
low wages. In Lynn, Massachusetts, the
shoe manufacture is said to continuo very
active, and although the season is so late,
orders are continue to arrive to a large ex
tent. All kinds of manufacturing in New
England, are reported to be much brisker
than they were a few months ago.
Josh Billings on Tomatoes.
It is now about 8 or eleven years since
folks began to hanker after the Tomatoes.
About that time some doktor ov pills dis

disoovered some doktor stuff in them.
As soon as the folks found out they was

At that time they was in the habit of
growing in sly plaoes, where they want

They was vagabond weeds, and even a
wood bog wouldn't eat one ov the berrys
that grows on them enny quicker than he
would a bawl of red stocking yarn.
But it was decided that there was sum
pills in them, and they was put to nuns, in
pots and vases, and lived on the phat of the
land, in hot houses, along side ov tiger lays
and rows ov sharon.
