He is.a good lawyer, a man of talent, and

MR. Enfrottlii the •Temperance•De ,
partment of your paper of last, week, there
appeared a notice from the ExecetivePoin-
Mime of the cumberland.Cottnty Tempe
,recommending a series... of
Plates. -The plates are designed by Pro
fessor Sewall, of Washington„and arc in
tended to represent the human stomach
when influenced by certain conditions, viz:
the stomach of a'- healthy. peyson, the sto
. a confirmed drunkard, the stomach
of a drunkard after a. debauch„and the sto
mach ora-person who has died-from mania
a, polu. Therplates .profess te be views of
-actual sections of the stomach, as made by
several distinguished. anatomists. — The
communication of the Committee -contains
not only a high iccommendation.ef these
'plates; but also several suggestions, which,.
in, our opinion, are entirely uncalled for.
This is the first time that any communi
cation on the subject of temperance has met .
our disapprobation, and we hope that it
may be 'the last. We . • consider .the facts
which appear front week to . week, to be.
highly beneficial;:apd if properly atteijded
to,_ would. prove advantageous,, not only to .
the temperate man, but also to diet mode
rate "as well as dm . constant . drinke,r.i' , We
would he sorry to say-or notice anything
which' might . prove injurious
of temperance; nor would . we cast any're
flections on the committee, not on the woy.-
thy-and 'respectable gentleman . who signs
the.epinfithnidation, .We are, warm friends
of temperance, though no vi:illing.to carry

ive holior . .alid respect, the gentlemetY coin- '
-posing the committee who have' devoted so
inach - or their-.time and .talents - in this. good
Our„objections to the communication are
twofold. Pirst, we - do not think the plates
deserve • the "high • encomium bestowed on
them; secondly, the notice casts; indirectly,
reflectionottAlre- use „of - tiine fn
the sacramental cup. The,committee think
that these views should be hung up in-eve
ry medical school, collgge, academy, tem
perance • house,. court room, prison,
and. poor house. -_ According to life
committee, every father of .a fainily, every
minister of the gospel, every professor of
religion, every:one'who feels that Wine is
not a proper subitanee for the sacrament,
ShoUld be furnished With .a copy of-these
plates. This is certainly i" very high es
timate of their usefulness, but one to . which
we cannot surrecribo.. To the plates them
selves we have no objection, but the ex
lensive distribution of tltem, will hardly
produce the' effect the committee suppose.
Aithougir they are art argument addressed
ro the senses, they are not the only one.—
Why not tell the community to look at a
living man's .exterior, • rather than. at the
inner rbat of a dead man's stomach?
drunken man may be seen nearly every
day, lounging about a tavern, or staggering
about the streets; a drunken man's stomach
can only be exposed to view after he is
dead. For an irresistible argument in favor
_teniperance,let.me look inside a drun
ken man's house, after he has returned from
a debauch, yather than at a picture pretend
ing to. give a representation of the stomach
Of a man who has died in a drinking frolic.
In the one I. see, p / robably, a wife in - rears,
children in rags, rooms with scanty, or
broken, or no furniture; no bread, no fire;
the husband sii+.earir.g and raving, and act
ing in a manner unworthy even of a brute.
The other, that is, the picture, would pre
sent an appearance precisely similar to that
of a dog, or a swine, or a horse, were there
means of forcing strong drink down their
_throats. The,coat of .a drunken --man's
slomach, to be sure, does not present a
very attractive appearance; it seems covered
over, with fiery red spots.,-and looks• as -if
the alcohol and the - gamic juice had. been
-fighting for the possession of the surface.
Again we must say that, although the - vieWs
are well enough to look at, yet they, are not
calculated to produce the effects the com
Our second objection tuAbe coninninica
tion, refers .to that portion. in which the
conitnittee advert to the influence the ex
hibition of these plates may possibly exert
on such persons as doubt the' banefulness
of using wine at the, sacrament. 'We do
not believe - that the • most careful iibserver
will be convinced, by 'the sight of these
plates, that wine Might to be dispensed
with. No intelligent •temperatce man, no
matter ,how- extreme his notions on this
subject be, will assert. that the very small
quantity of wine which is used, at the sac
rament, exerts any influence on the inner
coal of the stomach. We,. do not say tha
a small quantity of wine exerts no infld
ence whatever; but thgtit has any influ ,
ence on,the cob/ of the .stomach, we do
most positively deny. It is well known
thatthe i hunian stomach contains froth one
o,thrce'phits of liquids. Supposing tha
n n healthy and ordinary state, it 'coin*:
a pint ancl-a half; wo.uld any Man in ,his

of mankind. And among other subjects we
have had our attention drawn to the Tariff.
We saw'it, stated, broadly and roundly, that
a Tariff was 'uneonstitutional—we looked
to the constitution itSelf, •and found there
the assertion flatly rmidradicted—for the
power, full and unqualified, is expressly
given •to Congress to impose duties. In
fact, the constitutional right otCongress, in
this particular, was never questioned, until
the late Judge Barbour, in some of his ab
stract vagaries'', stumbled upon it. It was
capital for the so-called Virginia School—
and •it hasrbeen used in that way to the

could ascertain and understand them. .We
have - 6 - een . .hat all the predictions of the
wisest heade, 'previous to, th e Tariff of
and ',28, have been falsified by the results.
Mr. Randolph, one of the most sagacious
men that ever lived--affirmed that the -in
creased Tariff would destroy the revenue,
-and renders -- resort- to taxation necessary
to the support of the Government. Mr.
Clay and Mi. Webster both admitted the
probability of such a xeselt. And yet in a
few years the great difficulty Was to dis
pose of the limnense 'Borpltfefrevenue !
Those artieles,.*liich' it was supposed the
increased duty would eichide' altogether,
or render very dear; were bought cheaper !
than ever. And' during the greater petiodd
of the high Tariff, the whole country,. the
South as well as the.North,•enjoyed.a de
gree of . nationill prosperity Unprecedented
in the annals of any people. The Tariff
may not have been, and we do not suppose
it was, the sole cause of this palmy state
of national affairs: but, that' it did not ex
ert a banelul influence is Manifest; and that
on, the contrary it was a potent,auxiliary in
the creation of national Wealth is greatly
corroberated by the light which has come
over us since its decline, almost to the point
' of admitting articles free of duty.
As to the operation of ItaTiff'Upen thO
Sandi, and Virginia particularly, we cot -
fess that we have .not.been able to discover
its injurious effects.' All the articles
consumed -were obtained as cheaply (and
Many of them more so,) after the Tariff :le I
