The Property of Mind.
From " Why I ani a .Temperemee Mang' by T.
W. Brown, editor of Wisconsin
"There is a kind of property destroyed
which is seldom thought of, in viewing
the consequences of the rum traffic, and
the destruction of which forms due of our
strongest objections to it.
" As the traveler stands in the Seven
billed City and dreams of the greatness
of the once proud 'mistress, he honks .
around with awe for the evidence of that
greatness. The winds sigh amid the
crutublinn• e ruins, like the footsteps of the
past, and he finds himself alone in the si
lence of desolation. The ruins have out
lived the greatness of the proud empire.
He sits upon the broken columns which
silently yet eloquently speak of the 'Greek's
skill; but that classic land is only re
membered in history and perpetuated in
her exquisitely chiselled marble. The
proudest structures of earth pass away.
The ivy ere •ps over the ruins, and dust
gathers thiekly_nport them, Even the
pyramids,should time continue, will waste
away under-the beatings of the storm, and
mingle with the sands of the desert.. But
there are monuments which, never crunt-: .
ble. There are structures which lift up
proudly amid the surgings of sees, and
bid defiance to time cud storm. We
muse sadly where lie the ruins of empires,
and tread carefully where nations are, en
tombed. But to us there is no sight so
utterly saddeninr , as a MIND in ruins.
We weep from elle:ivy heart as we See
the gloom of a rayless. niglit, ghthering
over the mind, and the structure which
. was moulded by the hand of God maim•
bling into ruins, The Mind is property
—property which is of more value than
all the wealth of. the material universe.
And here is where we find one of the
most startling effects of intemperance.
Here is where the system wars upon 'a
class of property which cannot be gauged
by dollars and cents'. Hete are ruins,
thickly strewn . up . and dOwn the lind,
over . which the patriot, philanthropist,
and • Christian can weep with keenest

the infatuated inebriates. Their slaver

stand within the threshhold. It is a li

bar has been declared fit and competent
to keep a tavern. You voted for the

which come up from the ever• - active and

wealth of one drunkard's mind, and look
with awe. upon_ its waste, and then, with
the wide grasp of thought, gather in the
innumerable hosts which have passed frinu
the fields of life, and you have a destruc
tion of property, from the contemplation
of .which the mind turns shuddering away.
There is no resurrection from the wide
waste ofruins, Here are wit oleztemples
of genius, where everything that islutel
lectual and god-like in humanity is buried
beneath that lava-tide which has so long
swept on its course.
" Aye, the property of the mind. Leave
us that, though all' else perish. Let us
grapple with poverty and want, but leave
us that. Let us struggle with life's deep
est, bitterest sorrows. but leave us that.
Let every friend pass from earth, and we
die away from our kindred; let disease
exhaust the fountains of life by drops,
but leave us our mind. Even when the
body crumbles away, and the shadows of
the night of death shut out a brief clay of
life, the mind unbroken „looks. unmoved
over the material waste, and with a smile
rises to Him who placed it in the tene
ment of clay. . *- •* '
"There - .is still another .reason - why I
abhor the - rum traffic. It*spares neither
age nor sex. Its trophies are more to be
dreaded than those at the red man's belt,
snatched from the throbbing brow of in
noCence. The - system is cruel, merciless
'Teruel. It wars upon the defeneeleis,—
upon women and children. Its most des
orating strife is at the fireside. We exe
crate it fcr its cowardice, as well as its in
justice and cruelty. Those Who are ;lei

From" The Taller," No, 225 2 Sept. IC, 1710.
The hours which We spend in converj
sation are the. most pleasing,orany which
we enjoy; yet, me-thinks, Were is very
little care taken to improve ourselves for
the 'frequent repetition of them. The
common fault in this case is that of grow
iug to intimate, end, ta p ing into.displeasi i
inn fa - Miliaritiei; for it, is a Very ordinary
thing for men to make no other use of
close acquaintance with each other's at.
fairs, but to tease ono another with *llan!
ceptable - allusions.. One would pass over
patiently such as converse like anituids
and salute each Other with bangs on the
shoulder, sly raps with canes, or other
robust pleasantries practised by the rural
gentry of this nation ; but;even among
those who should have - more polite ideas
of things, you see a set of people who innk
vent the design of conversation, and make
frequent mention olunarateful subjects;
nay, mention them because they are' tin-t
-grateful; as if the perfection" of • society
were in knowing• how to offend on the one
part, and how to bear an offence on: the',
other. In all parts of this populous town;
you find the merry world. made up of a 4
active and a passive conipaniod; one wile.
has good nature enough to. buffer,
friend shall think fit to say, : and one who
is resolved to ruakethe most of his good
humor to show hiSpartec. In the trading
part of mankind, I' Wive ever observed
the jest went. by the weight of .puries
and the, ridicule is made up' by. the gains
which arise from it. Thus the packet
allows the clothier to say what he plerises;
and• the broker has his countenance readY
to laugh with the merchant, though the
abuse is to fall on himself, because
knows that, as a go-tween, he ,shall find
his account in being in the .goot grace's
of a man of wealth. Among these ju4
and punctual people the richest man is
ever the better jester and they know
such thing as a person twholdiall preten
to a superior laugh nt , a man,- who doe
not make him amends by opportunitieli
of advantage in another kind; but among . ,
people of a different .way, wbere . the pre=
tendeddistinciion in company is only
what' is raided from bense-ana tin deistand

therefore, we have abstracted the com

that tb make it happy and polite, there
must nothing be started which shall dis
cover that our thoughts run upon. any
Such distinctions. Hence it will arise,
that benevolence must become the rule
of society, and he that is niast obliging
must be most diverting.
