The Lincoln papers insist that there
is goiiijj to be a great temperance fijjiit
this winter, & and seem t o have a
fund of information on tho KUtter not
accessible to common mortals else
where. One statement says tnere are
petitions out all over Cass county with
hundreds of signers. On inquiry we
learn that no peii:iotis have as yet
been circulated, but some were eiu
here from the Lincoln headiu triers,
and they will be circulated mole or
less before the legislature meets.
We hepa for the honor 'and cradit of
the State, the legislators this winter
wi!l have manhood enough and brains
enough to represent the people who
sent them there themselves, whether
it be on the temperance question or
any othur, anil mL let a set of dema
gogues, some of them mere advcnlui
ers from other states, lobby and dic
tate and control the making of laws
in this .State. If there is any temper
ance legislation needed iel the mem
bers originate it, manage it and stand
responsible for it, and we further hope
who ever may he elected speaker wid
never allow the lobbies and aisles to be
crowded niili outsiders, to whip.-r
suggestions and make comments and
interlineations and amendments dur
ing the passage of a bill. Such scenes
are disgraceful, for if the members
cannot bo trusted to act for themselves
without a spy or a mentor at their el
bow during legislative hums, we had
better send men whom we can, 1 rust.
As to the "light this winter," we
should not waste the people's money,

people's vanity by giving them noto

Now, Mr. Editor, you may look at
this Heft'meister case lioin a mole ele
vated standpoint than we of the "so
called" Can, yet allow US to suggest
that, although it m ty be clear and com
up there, t tie distance may rendd
some of the more minute objects m
ilislinct; and to suggest, aist, that
there are lamentable occurrences in
various communities possibly your
own which are brought about by cii
cumstances that should palliate the
charge of great moral obliquity The
jury acquitted II ffmeister, and we
hardly see how it could have done
otherwise, considering the testimony
that was brought before it, and Ihe
omission of every thing touching his
character. But could the jury have
been made acquainted with some of
the causes w hich led to the house
stoning, such as nocturnal raids on
wood and coal piles, quarrelsome dis
position, stealing school hoys' bats for
kindling, indecencies too vile for
print, and others that might be named,
the verdict might have been different,
and our friend Hkk.m.d's criticism
might have been made to reflect lest
seriously on us as a community.
A word as to "the boys" may not be
out of place. The clearing of Moff
meister was virtually" saying that they
were the real cause f the manslaugh
ter. Pel feet ion is not the character
istic of youth. We h-Mieve the old
saying that the average boy is a "harp
of a thousand strings" with many of
them out of tune, as in this instance,
and yet, we who know those boys
know that they were punished far
more by learning that their acts had
led to the killing of an innocent man
than by all the fines and impii-on-ments
which the law could lay upon
them. We would no; complain be
cause the boys were punish) d. We
believe they deserved all they receiv
ed, and perhaps much more, but pun
ishment is more valuable when it is
iifipartta'iy admi dstered. How was
it in this case ? Several of the boys
were fun d here by our Justice of ihf
Peace. It was cl.timwd by some in
the Hekalu's neighborhood that our
.-qiiiri' wits too lenient, so' two were
tried by the County Judge. Both

told by those attending court Mr.
Editor, wili you be kind enoiuh to as
certain if such is the case, and if so
inform us of the fact, ami explain to
ns wherein the action was justifiable,
and to what extent we may expect
such judicial partiality to advance the
civilization of this community. The
only cases connected wi: h the shoot
ing of that innocent man which were
disposed of at ihe last term of court,
were those of HofTuieist r and one of
"the boys," who plead guiltv in the
lower court. B.ith were acquitted.
Now, here is the problem w hich both

on account of the depredations of the
boys, and oe of the boys go-s free en
account of-well. we don't knowwhat
then who is the nuilty party, should
lie be punished, and what is the exact
amount of censure w hich should be
charged up to-Louisville for being th

" For il'id. .tu l otne. a:ul Native Laud."
loiai Abstiiieacv iu Ltglaad.
A few months ago we asked Mr. 1
Gougli, who had just returned from j
England, it the cause of temperance is j
making progress in thai country. He j
seemed almost surprised at the ques- !
t on, and answered with emphasis that ;
the cause is progressm" there far j
more rapidly than in ibis country.
He mentioned among other evidences '
tne lad that five or six thousand of
tue isiab.ished clergy have signed the
pu dge, and have appealed to their fcl-'
uw -subjects to imitate their example. :
-since then we have been able lo make
further inquiries, and learn with jrrat- '
ideation that the agitation in Gieatj
Britain is general and most fiiEitul of !
good result. We ware aware that!
Canon Fallal hail become an advocate j
of loiai abstinence, and that he stood j
not quite atoiiv in the position he had
cm sen, but we did not ki ow until re
cently that he represents a movement
ot formidable proportions.
Th- cause is not so strong in Fug- j
land as in America. Drinking is tar j
more general there, ami even the 10- ;
lig us part of the population indulge
111 tho habit to a dreadful extent. But I
tie advocates of total abstinence aie!
gaining ground rapi Iy, while with us :
1 hey seem to be standing still, or even
ran eating. Tell years ago ' Im travel-!
lei in England never came in contact
with total abstainers; now he wiil
meet them not infrequently. In Eng- ,
land they have temperance hotels :
which prosper as they have never done ;
iii ihe United stales, where even the !
temperance lecturer puts up at a house j
o!' aiio' her kind because it is better
sustained and hence more comfortable, j
The Washington House in Lirerpool,;
always a favoire of Americans, de-!
serves their support now more than i
ever, since it has banished its bar and j
aiiioumel thai it will Hiiiiisii its;
g. tests with no liquor. Perhaps the ,
pecuniary sacrifice of the temperance !
hrttul in Englard is not so great as it
is in America, since the profits on ;
wines aiid liquors sold are not excep- j
toinaily great, while here they are i
enormous. Still another proof of the;
progress ed' temperance in England is j
the interest it excitts among the;
young, six weeks ago fifteen thous- j
and ciiildren, oiganized as a Hand ur. j
Hope, met lo spend the tlay at the
Cry slai Palace ; and ail of them were!
from places near London. If the tiis- j
trici has so many boys and girls p!elg-i
ed to total abstinence, the numbers in :
the Kingdom at large must 1 i:u-

dividing forces that are only tt.o weak 1
when united. We have secret socie
ties and open societies, men's societies

Another error ihey ought to avoid
is that .f civil war. A house divided j

stiou.d be a place 111 mo one mganiza- j
lien for every man, woman and child :
w tiling lie light the demon of intern- '
perance, no matter on what iheoieiical i
grounds he basts his action. There j
should be a place for Dr. iLehardson, j
ho ho. tis alb sorts ol wine and beer 1
and spirils lo bo absolutely aad only
poisonous, ami for other physicians
who, white they prescribe them as
remedies, rppo.se their t'se as bever
ages; lot "such men as Canon Farrar,
w iiu believes it lawful for the Chris-!
Uan to think, but surrenders the priv- I
iiege out of love for his feilaws; and!
for such men as Pr. Howard Crosby,
who has wine on his table, but makee
a heroic light against the public grog
chop. Is any man willing to do anvi
thing heartily to check the vice and
misny which liow from the drinking j
habits ot society i He should lie hail
ed as a helper, though he may diflVr
on many points I ruin the soldier
inaiching by hi- sid-i. No strength
should be wasted in internal conflicts;
the common enemy is so strong that
we need the aid of all who are willing
to give it in any way .
In some of our communities the tem
perance movcmtnit has been wholly
one of Sanson; in others it has assum
ed almost wholly political character ;
but in almost none has it banded to
gether the friends of temperance for
the determined execution of such laws
as we have for the regulation ami re
straint of the liquor traffic. Dr. Cros
by has the honor of proposing to en
list good men in an effort to enforce
the laws as they stand. His example
mit'ht well be imitated in England,
and far more largely hi this country.
We must keep the public sentiment
aroused by agitation. We must pull
the drunkard from the fire. We must
save the children. We must secure
lagislation. But. beyond all this, we
must be willing to spend some money
an 1 tiri5 and energr in prosecuting
those who sell liquor illegally at our i
verv door. - Sometimes ihey w ill ap-
pcai to our pity. Sometimes they will j
prove to ae respectable
whom we dislike to expose, and dis
grace. Sometimes they will prov to
so ignorant and so low that we may
hesitate to touch them. We should
preserve a wholesome rigor, remem
bering that only thus can we accom
plieli any cood purpose. If men could
see something immediately prac-ical
growir g out of the themperance move
ment, they would join it in larger
nambers. Often they have not lime
or incli'.iation for other modes of activ
ity, while yet theyare able to appreci
ate and approve the actual suppres
sion of a great evil, even if it be ac
complished only in part. If our Eng
lish friends will keep al! the present
features of their effort, ami in addition
resolve thniselves in'o a sot ity some
what like that of Dr. Cict y, in New
York, whose object shall be to use
such enactments as can be obtained, to
see that the laws aie enforced, ro mat
ter on whom their vreight may fall,
they will prove wiser than we are this
side the ocean, who have confined our
selves oo exclnsively to moral and
political cativit.v aiul have neglected
too often the enforcement of such
laws as our legislators have given ns.
We rejoice in their prosperity, and
predict that they will out strip us in
the work if they preserve the speed
with which to-day thev are increasing
in numbers, and if they act w ith care
ful forethought, as well as with zeal.

On many previous occasions we
have spoken in terms of praise of this
journal. The December number is
truly a km al one. From the s'riking

page with its funny piernirs and al
ways sprigh! ly "Tun le Tracks." it, is
good. The li crary fra: urt s. its stor
ies, miscellany, etc., are of a sort pe
culiarly pleasing at. holiday-time. jn
addition to its usual wealth of Fash
ion Intelligence all yearly subscribers
receive with this number, a Grand
Christmas Gift in the fVr.n of a Gi
gantic Supplement, the f nl i size of the
Bazar itself, filled with useful and
beautiful designs that can be used as
patterns in fashioning many articles
suitable for Holiday Gifts; also de
signs for printing on china, silk and
satin, for embroideries, etc.. etc. The
proprietor states ihnt those designs,
if purchased of a dealer, would cost,
ten times th price of the Bazr.
which statement will at once be con
firmed by any one who may examine
this bean! if ul supplement. The sub
scription price of Andrews' Bazar is
81 a year, and every subscriber is enti
tled ti- a valuable premium, and. if 1
