From the above it will be seen that!
the will inculcates absolute abstinence '
It has long appeared to us that the friends
uf temperance insisted too strongly on !
retaining in pledges and statutes some pro-1
vision whicii would allow the use oi al
cohol for medicinal and other purpose. |
In many cases th y have been tenacious,
that they have given their opponents oc
casion to use it as aa argument against the
temperance movement, bo much
haa been lead upon aa exceptional clause. |
that we have often been provoked and;
been glad to see those who were by their!
ludiscreeincss subjecting the cause to tbej
obloquy of its opponents, stern)}' rebuked 1
for their inconsistency.
We think the medicinal quaii;iys h/vc i
been very much overrated; all its indica
tions can be acoompjished by articles -jVhich!
do not possess any deleterious operation. 1
AH a stimulant, there are practitioners ot,
no mean repute either, who have discard- j
ed its use entirely. They have better
ones, and use thou, finding no difficulty I
in their practice. And tbr culinary pur
poses there is no excuse for the use of
alcohol in any of its forms. It is true
that no intjxicaLion will result fi-qm the;
u.. j of oak or or pies which contain aicoli >l,
i ">r the process of baking dissipates thej
intoxicating qualities. Its effect is to ;
add to the indigestible nature of pastry
and cokes ; but it is not owing to this;
tiuit we now object to its use. It affords
a weapon for the friends of the use ol
und traffic in liquor to use against tbei
advocates of prohibition. They say that if;
is proper to use it in cake and pies, it sure
iy can be no harm to use it as a beverage,
provided it can bo done in moderation.
And with similar pleas for .any of tho uses j
of alcohol which are considered exception:.
many satisfy their concieucos and excuse
taemselves to gratify a depraved appetite i
or a habitual practice which may be j
wrong, men v/iii find justificatory reasons ,
IQ very small nutters. When wrong do-1
iag wishes to shield itself, it will invaria
bly 3Gck a weak spot in the opinion or!
practice of the friends of the right, and
avail themselves of that. We have watch- j
ed the progress of temperance lor the las: j
tea years with reference to the effect ot
the exceptions we have noted, aui we
are satisfied that we have lost much by,
the policy we have pursued. There seems
to be only one position which is tenable'
and which can be occupied with success;!
and that is total proscription of alcohol,
making no reservations whatever, as to;
it 3 U3e. It is a poison, and lot it share j
the fate of all other poisons. Let it be
treated as an enemy in whatever shape it
presents itself; let us not waste ouj
fctength by combatting intemperance, and
in the same breath make an admission
which more than haif neutralizes our ef
fort and throws obstacles in the way of
our progress. The point wo have sug
gested deserves serious aud earnest atten
tion, for though a good work has been
doue, there is enough for us to do yet. —
lotomperance has been bruised God
aad Humanity demand that it shall be
killed. The war we arc to wage is not one
of palliation but extermination. He who
strikes against vice niuot be careful that
he leaves no chance for the enemy to use
his own weapons and appropriate them to
to itself. Tne question whethoj alcohol
is a poison or not is not an open one. —
Chemistry has settled that question, and
placed it beyond cavil or doubt. Testi
mony of its effects we sec every day writ
ten on scores of our fellow citizens. Its
moral effects are as legibly ex
pressed as the sunlight on the landscape.
H >w then can we make any exceptions,
:h shall allow that alcohol is a safe

".V WOPYD TO THE Pp.ES3.-7-The Pot
ter Pa., Journal has takep poins, on one
or two occasions lately, to give UJ back
handed compliment*, indicative, doubt
less of the feelings oi the editor towards
us. lbey and their author arc cf oo lit
tle conaeqqcnee, that we would not have
noticed tne.n, except to answer the en
tire clasa his calibre and mental pro
portion*. The innuendo that we have
ever been, ars now, or ever will be, un
true to Fran estate principle*, is so ba~e a
slander tfyat it would bo a work of super
errogatioa to refute it. That a Republi
can journal should make such assertions
without any evidence but the mere ipse
dixit of a disappointed political huckster,
and his satehtue, the penny-a-liners, is not
only surprising, but \' r also shows a want
of iiiimesfs which every member of the
fraternity of editors deserve at thq hands
of each other.
"When JOHN S. MANN, ESQ,, edited
the Journal , wo should have felt hurt at
such an insinuation. For many years
when the Free Soil party was in a seem
ingly hopelee3 minority, that gentleman
and the principal editor of this pa;icr
"did battle shoulder to shoulder" in north
ern Pennsylvania, against slavery and in
temperance, loqg years before the present
editor of that paper had any political feel
ings iu common wiihours. Rut John S.
Mann is a nobleman—one of nature's
own, and when he retired from the press,
the fraternity lost one of its very best
members. Success to him.
"All we ask of our brethren of the
press, of whatever party or clique, is fair
ness. We are willing to stand by our
opinions always, as they are stated by
ourselves, but we are not willing to stand
by the misreprestjmi.njon.s of others."
We find tho above in the Kansas Her
ald of Free*lorn, of the 4th inst., as an
editorial. 11 It and its author gre of so
•'l;ttlc conseqgence, that wc not
"have noticed them," except tQ put our
readers iu possession of the real position
of the paper. Byt before wc go >nv fur
ther, wo will give our hearty approbation
to ail that our censor has said of Mr.
JQHN S. MANN, premising, however, that
Mr, M. fully subscribes to any innuen
does against the Herald of Freedom
which may haye appeared in the columns
of the JOURNAL, tq call out the above
notice in the Herald, But as he is fully
oQiripetcnt to give expression tq his sen
timents, we recommend that the "associ
ate" of the call upon him and, j
after obtaining them, compare the eamc
r?ith oar o^n.
Every true friend of the cause of Free
Kansas will bear with us when WQ as
sume that we have had good reason to
doubt the sincerity of the Herald 0/Free
dom ; and no reader of the number of Ju
ly 4th will longer regard it as an honest
of the policy of the Free State
party in Kansas. We have patched with
much interest the course of that journal
for the past few months, and each suc
ceeding issuo diminishes our respect for
its opinions apd position. When the ed
itor of a public journal, engaged in what
ever cause, \rill permit a question of per
sonal veracity to stand between it and
the promulgation of a great principle, we
! are of the opinion it is no longer en;idea
Jto the respect of honest men; and such a
: journal at once forfeits all claims upon
| the courtesy ola co-laborer with it in that
I cause. The Herald, not satisfied with
making the question of its editor's verac
j ity a detriment to the Free State cause,
i has x to gratify its personal spleen towards
: Grow Robinson, token to lauding every
movement of the smoQth-tougued pro
slavery Gov. Walker, irrespective of the
I tendency of that movement, and has even
i gone so far as to indicate a preference for
a pro-slavery over the lopeka Constitu
tion. It refused to publish the message
of Gov. Robinson, and in the meantime
takes particular pains to promulgate the
messages, speeches &e,, of Gov. Walker
and toady Peyrin.
Wc have not time or room no - * to fur
ther notice this matter, but before wc
have done with it, wc shall place our
readcte in full possession of the true pol
icy and principles of the Herald of Free
| dom, and which we are invited to do by
the above extract.
Ttje Administration at Work
iu iiaasas.
The great question at issue in the last
Presidential election, was, whether the
i National Goyernmeut shall continue to
j be an instrument of the Slave Power in
eroding and perpetuating the curse of
: Slavery. At the South, no man doubt
ed Buchanan's devotion to the Slave in
terest, and therefore he got a nearly unan
; imo;is vote jn that section. We thought,
'and still think, the same evidence which
satisfied the Slaveholders that he was
their man, should have satisfied the
Northern 3100. <?f the same fact. Rut the
| attachment of a good many people for
i3 wronger than attachment
to principle, agd they were induced to
vote for Buchanan under the pretence
that he vyas for freedom jn Kansas.
This decision gf Northern men secured
hi* election, and now after four mouths,
wnat hu3 the President done for Kansas'(
He has kept tae iu famous Lecampte on
the Begch; and has appointed some of
the worst Border Ruffians to important
But in order to throw dust in the eyes
of the Free Sta;e men, he sent out Gov.
Walker, a smooth tongped Southerner,
with instructions to deceive the Free
iStaje men ia;o sqbmission to the Bogus
laws, the attempt to enforce which was
tag ghief sin of Fresident Fierce. But
even these fair Yfords, which iqean noth
ing, are distasteful to the South, and they
require tqp administration to stop them,
and now sqe how the Washington i nior^ }
tl;e orgap of the Fresidept, upsets alj of
Wajker's smooth words about submitting
the Constitution of the Bogus Conven
tion to the vote of the people ;
"We think, for these reason*, that Gqv.
Walker, in advocating a,submission of the
constitution to a vote of the people, acted
with wisdom and justice, and followed
the only Hue of policy which promise? to
settle this vexed question either rightly
or satisfactorily, iu this respect at leas;
he ha* done nothing worthy of death or
lint who arc the poGpb ? What shall
be the qualifications of a voter on the
constitution when it comes to be submit
ted ? Wc answer that this is for the con
vention to settle. Tljose who think that
the convention might declare the conti- 4
tution in full force by virtue of their own '
will, can hardly deny that they might ap
pend to it a condition requiring it to be
first approved by the people. If they
can do this, they can also say what classes
of shall be counted as being part
of the people."
If the Slave holders are not satisfied
with that explanation, they must be de
termined la crowd the mourners unrea
sonably. "Don't you sec, ?av3 the Fres
idept "what a fix lam in. Last fail 1
"wu3 elected on the protend? that our
"party was in favor of allowing the pco
"pk of Kansas to decide this matter for
"themselves, and now unless I mako a
"show of doing this, the party in the
"North will be blowed sky high. But
"gentlemen, just keep cool and I will
"make it all right for you, the Convention
"can determine who the people are, of
"course it ean ; and it can just say, that!
"the list registered by the Bogus officials
'•'are the people; and so the same men
"aqd nine others, who voted for delegates
"to frame a Constitution, will vote on its
"adoption." If that is not the meaning
of the above extract from the Union, then
it has none.
Then take the following which closes
the Union's defence of Walker's cause in
Kansas, and we think none but the wil
fully blind, can fail to SQC that the Ke
publicans were true prophets. Says the,
President's organ :
"Governor Walker is a southern man ;
he has been sent out by an administra
tion pledged to the defence, of southern
right.->: he is surrounded by a corps of of
ficers, most of them from the South, and
every one of them sound national men;
he was instructed to regard the terri
torial authorities as legal, and sustain
them against the rebellion of the Topeka
I Abolitionists; he is acting in concert with ,
the friends of the South, and gallantly;
'lighting their enemies. Wc cannot help
but think that such a man, so sent, so
instructed, so surrounded, and so acting,:
!is entitled to sympathy, comfort and aid!
from the South whenever they can be
giveu with a conscientious regard to truth.
With such a battle raging iu his front, it
was harsh and ungracious to opep this
tiie on his rear."
So we think. It was not only ungra
cious, but it was the height of folly, be
cause it has compelled the administration
to come out and say, that the fair
of Walker to the Free State men of Kau
sas mean nothing, and therefore the game
of double dealing is up. IJereafter Walk
er will appsar in his true colors, the ally
and leader <?f the pro-slavery men of Kan
sas, for says the Union :
"A southern man himself, he has been
a uniform and consistent champfon of
southern rights. The men ot
that section pressed him upon Mr. Bu
chanan for tho highest place iu his cabi
ns. He is besides, an able, far-seeing
and saga?iuu3 statesman, as little Jikely
as anv of her in the country to impale
himself upon a point of mere prudence.
This alone might raise a presumption
that lis neither did harm nor intended
any to southern interests, But we
see, in addition to this, that he is active
ly cooperating with the democratic party
in Kansas, including all the pro-slavery
men in the territory; when we find his
whole course sustained by the pro-slave
ry presses there; when tye bear of no
complaint whatever from the quarter
whence complaint ought to pome, if thejp
were any cause for it, we are constrained
to thin l / that the Georgia and Mississip
pi democracy have pronounced their
judgment rather hastily."'
A Talk witty You.
"Reader, honest thinking reader, you
who have a; heart the welfare of freedom,
can you point to any course which the
Herald of Freedom nas advised the peo
ple to pursue, or any course which it has
itself taken, which has proved an injury
to the qapse you Jove I Have we ever
opposed men without reason, or measures
| without good grounds therefor V'—-Kan
sas Herald of Freedom.
As I have been a constant reader of the
Herald, and a warm fifiond of the paper,
I feel as if the enquiry was addressed to
mc in common with thousand.* of others;
and I shall answer the enquiry through
the press, the medium by which it is
made public.
To my humble judgment, the number
of the IFrald from which yhe above was
takeiq contains very muah that is well
calculated to injure the cause which the
friends of freedom love, and which they
have supported at so great a sacrifice,
The first article und*>r the editprial
head has that tendency, because the
whole tenor of that urtiplc is to discredit
the action of the Free State men, from
the commencement of the trouble up to
this time. |f that is not injuring the
causq, I should like to know what would
do it,
I should also like to know how an hon
est reader of the Herald, at this distance
from the scene, was to reconcile different j
parts of this same article. Take these 1
assertions lor instance :
"Now peace and tranquility reigqs on
every hand. Others may prognosticate
'■evil, and tell us it is the quiet which pre
cedes the storm, yet the calm observer
knows such is not the case, Our civil
rights are new within our rough, and
j nothing but impolitic action or "masterly
inactivity" can defeat us."
That is a hopeful view of thing, but
contains a back stroke a; the course adopt
ed by the Free State men. But see how
this compares with the above :
"Freemen of Kansas ! Do you not see
the progress of the enchanter ( The last
hope is dying out. Another period lost,
and wc arc lost —irrevocably LOST."
There is more evil "prognosticated'' in
those four lines, than we have ever seen
in any column of printed matter outside
of the Herald, and every "honest think
ing reader" who loves the Free State
i eay,se, w;ll be grieved at the purpose and
| effect qf *uoh language,
But the next article, that \x\ relation
to the Topeka Constitution, \s to the
sgme purport, and its whole influence is
bad- Several Conventions have unani-
endorsed that Constitution, and no
mating of Free State men, that has come
to the knowledge of the public, has op
posed, why then this opposition of the
Herald ? object distraction and
defeat ? such would be thy effect, if the
paper was received as a reliable advocate
of Freedom in Kansas.
I have 110 heart to purspe this investi
gation further; aqd will close by saying,
J that whenever an editor feels compelled
to assert over Q Ver again his devo
tion to a cause, we may be pretty sure
there is something wrong iu his actions,
otherwise there would be no occasion for
him to trumpet his own praise.
