Influence of Sensible Women
Bulwer says : "It is a wondrous ad
vantage to a man in every pursuit or
avocation to.secure an adviser in a sen
sible woman. In woman there is at
Once a subtile delicacY of tact, and a
plain soundness ofjudgement, which are
rarely combined to an equal degree in
man. A woman, if she be, really your
friend, will have sensitive regard for
your character, honor, and reputation.
She will seldom counsel you to do a
shabby thing, for a woman friend always
1 1 desires to, be proud of you. At the
same time her constitutional timidity
makes her more cautious than your male
friend. She, therefore, seldom counsels
you to do an imprudent 'thing. By fe
male friendships, I mean pure friend
ship—those in which there is no ad
mixture of the passion of love, except
in the married state. A man's best
friend is a wife of good sense and good
heart, whom he loves and who loves him
—if lie have that, he need - not seek else
where. But supposing the man to be
without such a helpmate, female friend
ship he must still have, or his intellect
will have many an unheeded gap even
in the, strongest fence. Better and safer
of course, such friendships where dis
parities of years or circumstances put
the'idea of love out of the question.
Middle life hes rarely this advantage;
youth and old age have. We may have
female friendships with those tuuch old
er than ourselves.. Moliere's old house
keeper was a great help to his genius;
and Montaigne's philosophy takes both
a gentler and loftier character of wis
dom from the date in which ho finds, in
Maria de Gooney, an adopted daughter
"certainly beloved by me," says the
Horace of essayists,' "with More than
paternal love, and involved in my soli
tude dud retirement, as one of the beat
parts of my beiog." Female friendship
indeed, is to a man "prcesidium et dulcs
decus"—bulwark, sweetness, ornament
of his existence. To his mental culture
itis invaluable ; without it ail his knowl
edge of books will never give him
knowledge of the world.

the other side, where perhaps you may
find something more .valuable than that
which you first intended to appropriate.
Never put salt in . your soup before
you have tasted it. .1 have kuoWn. gen

Never burn your fingers if you .can
help it. People burn their fingers every
day, when they might have escaped if
they had been careful.
Lot no gentleman ever quarrel with a
woman. If you are in trouble with her
retreat. If she abuse you, be silent.
If she tear your cloak off, give her yuur

I have planted wild flowers round my

their visits to the flowers. Strangers
from the world have said : " How can
you exist in this dreary place ?" "Their

and so I simply tell them what they

pleasant to me that I have named it

Who is to Blame?
A gpi* deal has been said and writ
ten about the evil effects of Intemper
ance. Every one, who will but reflect
for a single moment, cannot fail to .dis-.
cover.that the liquor business has a
tendency to increase to an alarming ex
tent, taxation, crime, pauperism, and
insanity. it fills our prisons, alms-hous
es, and lunatic asylums, with thousands
of wretched inmates, such as criminals;
paupers and maniacs, whom the Govern
ment must keep and support. It brings
distress,' poverty, and ruin to thousands
of families that migtt otherwise be hap
py and comfortable. In short it causes
bodily suffering, mental agony, prema
ture death, and eternal ruin; and thus.
drags its victims 'down through a dis
honored life to a drunkard's grave and
a drunkard's retribution, This• we all
know to be matter of fact. None can
deny it. - History, experience, and Ob
servation confirm it. But who is to
blame for ail the unnumbered evils, un
told injuries, and deep damning effects
of Rum? Where are the men that
cause this woe, that blood, those scars,
the tears of that wretched wife, :or tfris
groans of those orphan children ? Is
the rum seller to blame ? Is he the au
thor of all this Misery ? But this is 'a.
weighty matter and a solemn charge.
Let us not be too hasty in 'pronouncing
judgement in the case. If we carefully
examine the subject we will find that
others besides the rum-seller, are in
volved in producing those monstrous
evils in society. The prbprielor, who
rents his house to the rum-seller, is' not
one iota better. He willingly rents his
property to the rum seller in order to
get gain, and does it knowing the dread
ful consequences which ensue from the
infernal traffic, and by so doing he be
comes his abettor and a party in the
crime. Justice, reason, and common
sense dictate that the sentence passed
upon one, should also be passed upon
the other'; therefore,,if you blame the
rurnsellor, yon are bound to censure the
proprietor also, for one is as guilty in
the sight of Heaven as die other. But
if yoa go to those men and talk to them
upon the subject, they will tell you that
neither of them has violated the law of
the land. The rum seller will tell you
that he is engaged in a lawful business,
and to prove it he will show you his
"License." The question then arises
Who gave the rum seller the legal au
thority to conduct this traffic ? Why
the Legislature. That honorable body
passed the law licensing the liquor traf
fic, which gives the rum seller the 'legal
right to make drunkards, paupers, and
criminals. Therefore4f you blame the
rum seller and proprietor, on every
principle of justice, reason, and common
sense, you are compelled to blame the
members of the State's Legislature also.
Nay, more than this, you are bound to
pass the same sentence upon ,the-mem
bers of every subsequent Legislature,
who refuse to exert themselves to have
that law repealed. .
But still we have not yet reached the
fountain head. The question is; Where
does the liquor come from? Who makes
it ? If there were no liquors the Legis
lature could not enact laws to regulate
its sale because there would bo no such
traffic in existence. Hence it is neces
easy to go' to the distillery, or malt
liouse, and find out the man that manu
factures the deadly poison. The distill
er, or the brewer, has the greatest weight
of guilt, resting_ upon him. He is the
man that °pule the fountain, and pours
terth a flood-tide of evils.
Allow me then to ask once mote
Who is to blame for the evils of Intem
perance ? The proprietor ? No. The
rum seller?:No. The Members of the
Legislature? No. The distiller or the
brewer? No. These, it is true, are, all
to blame in part, and. each will have to
answer for his guilt at the bar of God ;
bat still the entire blame does not, rest
upon them,. " Who then," say you "is
to blame ?" I answer : Those who drink
the liquor. The rum drinker; are the
drunkard makers. And in making this
assertion I do not mean the habitual
.but the periodical; the moder
ate and the fashitMable drinkers. In
short cill thew thht drink intoxicating
liquors as a beverage, I-care net wheth
er they be Church memberstiiildireligious
professors or sceptics and infidels; nor
whether they drink in priblio houses or
private dwelliogs—whetherlt he out Of
a tumbler in the bar room' or out of a
silver goblet in the parlor; the fact is
still the same. Is it not self evident
that if people did not.drink liqUor the
rum sellers dould not sell. any ; and if
VOL. Xll.-NO. 52.
the rum seller could not sell any, the
distiller would not manufacture any ;
and if the distiller would not manufact
ure any the Legislature could not enact
laws to legalize the infernal traffic, be
cause there would be no such traffic in
existence. Hence the only sure and
certain way to stop the flood tide of evils
is not'to drink any intoxicating liquors,
as a beverage, at all. Here then is the
point where the reformation mßst begin.
It must commence at home. It must
start at self. It must take its rise from
Remember if we be:ever so moderate
we are identified with the drinking par
ty and the drinking system; but if wa
abotairientirely we raise a decided pro
test against the drinking system, and
connect imirselves with those who are
trying to save our country and our race
from the greatest foe. Reader, where
do you stand in regard to this' matter ?
On which sida is - your influence ? Are
you for or against the drinking party ?
Marietta, July 30th, 186 G.
JONES' CORNER.—Jones has been
among, the spiritualists; he joined a
circle the other night and had manifes
tations. The medium was a tall, thin,
angular, cadaverous individual, who
looked as if, after getting up the frame,
nature had been . seized with a fit of
economy, and neglected to put in the
underpinning and plastering. The cir
cle was mixed, being made up of elderly
females, thin men, with a few pretty
girls. Jones seated himself between
two of the last, and all clasped bands
around a table. Jones says it was de
lightful. He squeezed the little hands
and when an unusually loud knock star
tled the circle, the little hand squeezed
Jones'. Sniffkins, who is so skeptical
that his father don't believe him, was
the first to ask questions.
'Where was I born ?' asked Sniff.
' In the poor house.'
Sniff's turn up nose now became red.
`Correct,' said Jones.
How many children have we in fam
Here a dispute arose as to whether
the spirit rapped eight or nine. So
Sniff asked again.
`One,' was the reply.
Probably correct again,' remarked
Here Mr. Sniffkins arose in a wrath,
slapped his beaver on with a bang, and
left the room.
The circle is not harmonious,' said
the medium in a deep sepulchral voice.
Jones thought it was, as he pressed
the little hands.
Let me ask a question,' said a vial
gry old lady.
Is the spirit of my husband present ?,
'Are you happy John without me ?'
Very - happy.'
Where aro you John ?'
In h —l.'
John's relict looked at the medium.
The medium smiled. He looked as if
he had the toothache. The circle
laughed, whereupon John's relict seized
a lamp and hurled it at the medium. It
broke over his devoted head, and left
the circle in darkness. Jones says a
spirit kissed him. He tried to seize
the spirit, and caught one of the pretty
girls . about the waist, whereupon there
were screams, In the meantime Jones
was aware of a furious engagement on
his right. A light was produced, when
it was found that John's relict had seiz
ed a venerable Cob, mistaking him for
the medium. They were separated,
when the " mejurn," with the coal oil
dripping over his woe-begone counten
ance, said " the circle must be broken
up," it was not harmonious.
