Biddeford Union and Eastern Journal (Newspaper) - November 3, 1854, Biddeford, MaineDozen Ami the record of commit menu to the county jail a rapidly lessening. But this a not All out retail Temperance groceries find their business largely on the increase since the Law came into operation and Are now receiving weekly pay mention accounts before com dated Worth less to fisc the paper on which they were entered we were informed by a store keeper a few Days since that men were now trading with him who had owed him two years h a ving become intemperate and Lull him Foi other places where rum could be procured in Cou Nexion with groceries if indeed the a Money held out to buy the latter after get ing a Supply of Tho former who since the Ziril of August had returned to his store paying promptly for what they got and also making weekly payments in liquidation of la Weir old accounts and that his Trade had increased almost one half during the past two Mouths. Here is the deference Between rum Rule and prohibition and Here the difference Between men when sober and when under the influence of intoxication. We have asked others in the retail dry Groccia , and we do not know of an exception lie to the reply has not been a Trade is belter than it fuits the Law the secret is easily told men now spend their Money to Supply the wants of their families whereas before if they had any it went into the till of the liquor shop.

His reply was a d a a Mem i suppose they be gone to the expression rough and heartless As it was contained much of truth a a gone to work 11 and Why ? the carcass is removed the article that called them to hover around his grocery and there to spend their time to he neglect of All else a under the ban of an Iron Law and not being Able to procure it they tied no Occa Sion to Laze Awny the hours of either Day or night in the neglect of their termites at his shop or to longer bestow their patronage upon the one who taking advantage of their weakness has done so much to debase and destroy them hard Timet.

Friday morning nov. 2, �?T54. The if ext elections. Elections Lor members of Congress and state officers Are to be held on tuesday next the states of new York new Jersey Illinois Michigan and Wisconsin and on the monday following in Massachusetts. In Ull of these states to litre is More or Lees confusion growing out of the Temperance slavery and utter questions. Illinois seems to to the great Battle ground of the contending armies. Douglas has exerted him a Elf to the utmost to prevent the people of his state from passing judgment against his Nebraska swindle and the state has been thoroughly canvassed by himself his friends and by others in opposition to the Nebraska Bill und for the Republican movement. La a a too has been in the fluid exerting his influence to beat Back Tho triumphant March of the people a and to retrieve the ground which has been lost by the administration by elections in other states. In the states of Illinois Michigan and Wisconsin the opposition to Tho administration scorns to be concent Ruthd As it was in Ohio and Indiana and we Hare Good Rea a on to believe that Tho Republican More Orient will be successful or if not entirely so that the administration will re Celivo merited rebukes in the election of members of Congress. In Massachusetts and new York Tho Temperance As will As the Nebraska question absorb the attention of Tho voters and this together with the old organizations has led to a multiplicity of tickets and Divi a ions even among those who in the main agree which May result badly and in addition to this the know nothings it is said Aro in the Geld with their lists of nominations. We fear there has been some want now let the Young Man who has work enough to a and is paid for it remember that it is not what he earns but what he spends that settles his accounts at the end of the year. him be assured that respectable wage ought to support Biro anti unless there Aje extraordinary weights for him to Carr it a a of debt or a Large family a be ought from Thorn to Lay of something against hard times that the curtained future May conceal.

There is Pride and the lust of admiration and a silly Hope of of practical sagacity in the action of some of Tho opponents of the administration in these states a Short sighted Ness which May affect unfavourably some of the congressional elections and perhaps prejudice Tho cause of Temperance also. In new York Thero arc fire candidates for governor. We sincerely Hope of at Clark who is supported by Tho Ami Nebraska men and Temperance men will be elected. His defeat and the election of Seymour who will receive All of the anti Temporo Neo strength would to a Causo of much regret. There is Little or no danger that any Nebraska Raon will be elected to Congress from Massachusetts a but the confusion which exists with Rose act to state Matt Cyl May Load to forgo unfortunate results. There Ore three candid pcs for governor in Tho Field was Burns whig Wilson free soil and Gardner know nothing. The result will probably lie to Choice.

Letter from Henry j. Gardner esq., to Hon. Charles Allen. Boston oct. 30, �?T54 icon. Charles Allen a sir a on my return Home after Somo Days absence i Havo been shown a copy of the Boston daily advertiser of Friday last containing an extract from the Worcester spy purporting to to a sketch of a speech recently made by you. I am further informed that you applied Tho remarks to me by name. The extract is As follows a a a what has been the result thus far i they Hare met in convention in Boston and nominated a Man As the representative of their principles who was one of the first subscribers to the fund to establish the chronicle started with the avowed purpose of repealing the Maine Law. Ana then a to his worthiness on the subject of so Ivory a his life is covered All Over with the badges of the slaveholder. I am credibly informed that to was one of the marshal s body guard when a Man like ourselves was kidnapped in Boston and carried through the streets to be consigned to endless slavery until heaven in its mercy shall effect his liberation through the portals of the grave lie has vindicated by speech and vote the fugitive stave Law and gone As far As any Man in this Commonwealth in support of Tho com promo scan i had supposed from your High reputation for integrity and probity you would not willingly have Mode ate Meinente concerning Sny Man based Only on Mere electioneering gossip and 1 am fully assured you will promptly and cheerfully Gire of extensive publicity to the denial of the charges As to their original assertion. To tit first statement i reply i never subscribed a Dollar to the fund to establish the Boston Bro Siclo. I was never asked to subscribe. I never Lunew there was such a subscription or such a fund. I do not know by sight and was never introduced to s single person tonne noted with that paper,1 either we a we a the \ self ii could not be More groundless than it is against me. The Power of language does not permit me to of picks the utter loathing i Hare for the conduct attributed fur in niger a uld i be the poor quivering wretch on the Rood again to the agony i bondage than a Volunteer guard to Aid in his return. He who invented the charge grossly land red me they who repeat or believe it do not know to. It is not True that i oui or have Ever been in favor of the fugitive slave Bill. I never voted for a Man who favored it know ing such to be his views and i must very much Chungo before i Ever do. I never by word act or vote favored its passage and i am in advocate of it essential modification or in lieu thereof its unconditional repeal. Returning from Canada last june 1 read in Tho oars that there was a petition for its repeal at the Exchange news room and on my arrival it Eforo even going to my Planco of business. I hastened to Tho exe Hau of and signed Tho petition. To Iho general assertion that my Quot life is covered All Over with Tho Budges of Tho slaveholder Quot i can Only interpose s general denial. You ivc been very much misled in your estimate of my character. Were it not a Little egotistical i might by my heart beat us earnestly for to right of Tho North and my determinations no As steadfast to pm it so Tho aggressions of the South of yours or your informants. Rut i am not Content with a general denial. I ask that Tho particular Leo Given Point to the place the Timo und Tho act a Stato the words Tho votes or the deeds Whereon this charge is based. And if those on a Whoso authority you Malte it. Cannot furnish them i ask you in common fairness to recall this statement so untrue so unjust. To the charge of being n a a pro slavery Man Quot und an a a old Hunker Quot i state a sin Glt fuel i was not elected by the whig convention a member of the state Central committee of that party but several vacancies having occurred i was verbally invited by its Secretary to attend a meeting held soon after the in Sago of the Nebraska Rill. I was present and offered a Resolution which i sustained in n speech to the effect that the whig organizations would Call a convention of the opponents of the Nebraska Bill without distinction of party to Nomi nato fusion candidates for state officers us was Dono in Ohio Vermont Michigan and other Stales. This Resolution was How Vor lost and its defeat was Ono of a series of events which placed in Tho political position i this Day occupy. I hooded Tho petition for Tho Uso of fun icel Hull for Tho great anti Nebraska meet ing in february last. 1 procured Tho officers and speakers. I called Tho meeting to order and Raudo the opening address and i think though i have not Tho record by to was one of its Vico presidents. Tho petition is in the City archives Tho Thor facts in Tho journals of Tho Day a and yet i am now charged with being a Nebraska in in in conclusion 1 would mid it is foreign to my wishes to write this or Uny personal letter. Rut to permit Elioso assertions to pass in contradicted would to construed where i am not known into a confession of their truth. I am warranted in saying had i the Honor of your acquaintance As i have of Many of your distinguished political friends you would never Honvo Given currency to these unfounded rumours. My Lile and conversation would have stamped their utter untruth to your satisfaction. I cannot anti Wernell Tho Falso rumours that May be originated hereafter. Lot the utter falsity of to Rase show my Felks citizens How Little Reli Arlie can be placed on others Fruci similar sources and for similar ends. I nut proud to know the people of our glorious Commonwealth Uro too intelligent and too chivalric to now any Man however Humble to to injured by slanders As base and unfounded As these. Such false assertions like the dragons Teeth that wore sown of old at Tho proper Timo will Spring up As armed Mer.

On these bloody Mounds fell 296 English officer Ami men and upwards of 3,000 it Piatia while their Western extremity was covered with the bodies of 1,400 Gallant frenchmen Ami of Moro than 3,000 of their foes. When lord Raglan and his staff Ami the Duke of Cambridge Rode round to the top of the Hill the troops cheered them with thrilling effects a shout of Victory which never can be forgotten the enemy who were Fly Itig in to distance might almost have heard its echoes As it rolled along among the Hills. Our men had indeed done their work Well for the action which commenced at 1 25 on our part was Over about 4 p. M. In fact the not Al close continuous fighting did not inst two hours. The russian regiment engaged Ngn inst us judging from the numbers on the Caps and buttons the dead Ami wounded Wei the 11th, 12th, kith 17th, l8lh, 31st, 32d, 33d, and me of the Imperial guard. The russian regiment consists of four battalions and each battalion May be said to be 650 Strong. Several of Tho Rog Imants 32d and 16lh, for example wore a Black leather helmet handsomely mounted with brass Ami my a brass Cone on the ton with a Hule for Tho reception of a tuft Feather or plume others wore simply a White Linon foraging Cap. They Wero All dressed in Long drab Coats with brass buttons bearing Tho number of the regiment these Coats fitted loosely were gathered in at the Back by a strap and Button descend to the angles and seemed Stout and comfortable garments though the cloth was course Blu stuff were thrust inside a pair of Wellington boots open at Tho top to admit of their being comfortably tucked Down Tho boots were Stout Well made and Servic Ablo. Their Knapsacks astonish our soldiers. On opening them each was found to contain the dress uniform Coatee of the Man Blue or Green with White facings and slashes like of r own a pair of clean drawers a clean shirt a pair of clean sock a pair of Stout mits a Case containing n Good pair of scissors marked a a Sapin a an excellent Pon knife with one Lutge Blade of russian manufacture a Ball of twine Roll of leather Wax thread Needles pins a hair Brush and comb a Small looking Glass razor strop and soap shoe brushes and blacking. The general remark of our men was that the russians were very a clean Solidor Quot and certainly the men on the Field had White fair skins to justify the expression. Eich Man had a loaf of dark Brown bread of n sour taste and disagreeable odor in Tho Knapsack and a Linen Roll containing a Quantity of Brown coarse stuff broken up into lumps and Large grains which is crushed biscuit or hard granulated Broad with Oil. This to were told by the prisoners was the sole food of Tho Mon they eat Tho Bra i with onions and Oil the powder is �?oreserve1 ration and if they March they May be for Days without food and remain hungry till they can get fresh loves and Moro bread it is perfectly astounding to think they can keep together on such diet and yet Thoy Are Strong muscular men our gun. The surgeons remarked that their tenacity of life was very remarkable. Many of them lived with wounds calculated to destroy two or three Ordinary men i saw one of the 32d regiment on the Field just Altor the fight. He was Spiot right through the head am the brain protruded Largo masses at the Back of the head and from the front of the Skull i saw with my own eyes the Woun ded Man raise his hand wipe the horrible mass from his brow and proceed to 6trug Gle Down Tho Largo Hills towards the water Many of the russians were Shat in three or four places few of them had Only one wound. They scorned to Honvo n general idea that they would be murdered possibly they had been told no Quarter would be Given and several deplorable events took place in consequence. As our men were passing by two or three of them were shot or stubbed by men lying on the ground and the cry was raised that a a Tho wounded russians a Wero firing on our men Thero is a Story indeed that an officer was severely injured by n Man to whom he was in Tho very act of administering Succour As he Lay in agony on Tho Field to this As it May there was at Ono time a near Chance of a Tea score taking place but the men were soon soon controlled and confined themselves to Tho pillage which always takes place on a Field of Battle. One villian with a red coat on his Back i regret to say i saw go up to a wounded Russia who was rolling on the Oarth in Tho rear of the 7th regiment and before he could say a word he discharged his Rifle right through the poor creatures brains. Col. Yoa Rode at him to Cut him Down but Iho fellow excused himself by declaring Tho russian was going to shoot him. This was the single act of inhumanity i saw perpetrated by this Arm flashed with Victory Nad animated by angry passions although Tho wounded enemy had endangered their lives by acts of ferocious Folly. Many of the russians had Small crosses and chains round their necks. Several were found with korans in their Knapsacks a most of Tho officers have portraits of wives or mistresses of mothers or Sisters inside their Coats. The privates Woro Tho Little Money they possessed in purses fastened below their left knee and the men in their eager search after Mono often caused Tho wounded painful apprehensions that they about to destroy them. Last night All these poor wretches Lav in their agony nothing could be done o Nola them. The groans Tho yells Tho cries of despair and suffering were a Mournful commentary on the exultation of the victors and on the Joy which reigned along the his ouzo fires of our Mon. Of the russians one thing was remarkable. The prisoners Are generally coarse sullen and unintelligent looking death had ennobled those who fell for the a up a Mion of their faces was altogether different. The wounded might have in void those who have seemed to have passed away so peacefully. To soldiers Are All shaven cleanly on the Chin and Cheek Only the most acne is left and the hair is cropped As close to the head i possible. The latter is a very convenient Mode of wearing the hair in these parts of the world. The officers the of Superior rank excepted Are barely distinguishable from the men so far As uniform is concerned but the generals wore sashes and Gold epaulettes. The subaltern wore Mere a lace shoulder trap instead of the cloth of Poe of the prior Apps. Most of them spoke preach and the entreaties of the wounded to be taken along with us a Tho officers mired of Pho Hill were touching in the extreme. The poor Fellows had a notion that our men would murder them if the Eye of the officer was removed from them. An old Genera who sat smiling and guns and Standard of trophies of our Victory the Ira Ops bivouacked on the Field not far Fruto the scene of their Triumph. Treatment or tur wounded at Tuk Battles or the Alma. A letter Iron constantinople a is it is impossible for any one to see the melancholy Sig the of the lost Low Days without of ceilings or Surprise and indignation at Tho of on medical system. The Munner in which the sick and wounded have been treated is worthy Only of the Savages of Dahomey. The sufferings on Board the Vulcan were hand enough. Thoro Woro three Hundred inn nod and 170 cholera patients and these were attended Toby on surgeons. The so no is described As terrible. The wounded seized Tho surgeons by Tho skirts As they picked their Way through the heaps of dying and dead but Tho surgeons Shook them off. It Tuny was right that the officers should receive Tho Principio attention and Thov possibly required the almost undivided Lai it or of four then but Somo Ono Mut be in fault when Large bodies of wounded men Are put on Board a ship with no Uno to give them surgical Nisi Stonco or oven Supply their necessity requirement. Large numbers arrived at Scutari without having been touched by a surgeon since Thoy fell pierced by russian billets on Tho slopes of Alina. Their wounds Wero stiff and their strength exhausted As they were lifted out of Tho boats to to carried to Tho Hospital where fortunately surgical Aid my to obtained. Rut All other horrors sink into insignificance compared with Tho state of Tho a Furtunato passengers by the Colombo a this vessel left Tho Crimea on the morning of Tho 25th, wounded men were being placed inboard for two Days before she sailed and when she weighed Anchor she car cd the following numbers 27 wounded officers 422 wounded soldiers and 106 russian prisoners a in nil 553 souls. About half of Tho wounded had received surgical ass Stanco before Thoy wore put on Board. To Supply Tho wants of this mass of misery were four medical men Ono of whom was Tho surgeon of Tho ship a sufficiently employed in looking after Tho Crow who at this Pinuco and season Are Seldom free from sickness. Tho ship was literally covered with Tho prostrate so As to be almost unmanageable. Tho officers could not get below to find their sextants and the run was made at Hazard. The vessel was at sea 12 hours through this mischance. Tho worst cases cases Wero placed upon the upper Dock which in a Day or two became a muss of putrid Ity. Tho neglect cd gun shot wounds bred maggots which Cru wed in Ivory direction inserting the food of Tho unhappy beings on Bora. Tho putrid animal matter caused such a stench that the off Cora and Crew were nearly overcome and Tho Neptuin is now ill from Tho effects of the five Days misery. All the blankets to Tho number of 1500, Honvo been thrown overboard As useless. Thirty men died during their voyage. The surgeons worked hard is possible but could do Little among so Many and Many in unfortunate follow first Camo under a to Nodi ical Many hand on Ilia arrival at Scutari six Days after the Battlo. It is an ungracious task to find fault and to speak of the shortcomings of men who do their utmost hut an unfortunate neglect has of cured since Tho or rival of the Steamer. Forty six men have Beer.

The vessel is quite putrid hut a in go number of men will to immediately employ cd to clean and fumigate her and thus avoid the danger of typhus which generally arises in such conditions. Two transports Woro towed by the Colombo and their Stato was nearly As bad. He had been robbed of his reason and his Money. Peter Mahon of Watertown was a few Days since committed to the jail of Jefferson co., on a charge of murdering his her Skull was broken her Foco horribly beaten to a Jelly and her Throat exhibited Marks of strangulation. Much says the Waterton reformer a a is the work of both Mahon and his wife were addicted to the use of Strong liquor. The following is related by Thurlow w. Browne a it to n recent number of the Cayuga chief a a while on Tho cars Tho other morning another illustration of Sheyni auriem Camo to my knowledge. A Bevy of Young bloods Wero on their Way to now York each flask in his pocket. They were eloquent for the Sanctity of private dwellings nalu ral rights and the Constitution.

A strange that made a d fool of himself a was the careless comment of the dead Many a Drunken companion. When he lost his life he was no drunker than they. And so the few drams of rum property in the flask so constitutionally sacred in gov.

He Euld not Brook such unconstitutional interference with his rights so vetoed Tho reproof and the reproved. A Man named Lane of very intemperate habits was found dead n few Days since in the Vicinity of Liberty in the same county and state. The Buzzards had nearly devoured him.

No verdict agreed upon Somo of the jury remained unsatisfied that he fired the shot though no Reader of the report of the trial can have n reason to doubt upon the subject. Now we would not take upon ours Lve to affirm that in each and Evory one of these cases Tho crime come Iitto was murder with malice aforethought. Drunken Ronen Seldom a tented Tate. But it is both unjust and unsafe to allow such a fact to serve of a mitigation of the crime of shedding human blood. He who voluntarily a a puts an enemy in his Mouth to steal away his brains a most be held responsible for his insane acts it would be making Public Justice a mockery to use a crime against morals As a shield to extent for crime against Law. There is some reason to apprehend that our jury men Are committing this mistake if it m so the Public interests imperatively demand that it should be and Here Are a Lew More of the same startling foots copied from the prohibitionist for november which need no other commentary a a a two Young men named Jeremiah King and Gerry Post living in new York had a quarrel on the 3d of october a but on the a following appeared to be As Good friends As Ever. On the evening of that Day however King who had been drinking assaulted Post with a cheese knife fatally stabbing him in the Back and Abdomen. Post is dead and King is arrested and awaits his trial for the murder. Hurrah for the veto a Man named Brower a few Days since leaped from a widow of the fourth Story of Ibe Onondaga Temperance House at Syracuse. Struck the Iron railing in front of the House from that fell to the sidewalk and died in half an hour.

It is morally certain that every Man of Tho Crew of the missing ships has perished and Tho report of or. Rno contains evidence but too Strong and convincing that death was fire coded by Groat hardship and intense suf ering. Tho report is so indefinite and in direct however that almost All the Cir Cut. Stances connected with their Fate must to left to conjecture. The new York journal of Commerce of fors the following plausible speculations of to the movements of sir John Franklin and his party a Tho period of this fearful tragedy is supposed to Nave been As Long ago As the Spring of 1850 and its locality near Tho Mouth of the Back less properly called the great fish River in int. 6o� 30�?�., and Between Long. 96 and 979. A Little North of these parallels the Bock River Niter flowing five Hundred Miles to a North Easterly direction from its source near Lake Aimer and Tho Eastern Javo Lako enlarges into a Hay from two Leo to fifteen Miles in Width which forms a Southern indentation to Tho Channel by which King Williams Jimd is encircled. This Channel empties through Domaso and Simpsons Strait into Victoria Strait and King William sea and connects in a nearly direct Northern line with pct sound Barrows Straits and Wellington Channel. At the onto Anceo this latter Channel on the Eastern Shore Are situated Capo Kiley and the Peninsula called Beechy Island whore it will to remember of the Grinnell ship Rescue and two shins under curtain Penny of Captain Austin s Squadron discovered simultaneously the last signs of sir John Franklin it was ascertained from inscriptions on the grave stones of four of his party who were buried on Beechy Island that he spent there the Winter of 1845, and probably More than half of 46. From that Limo no Rumor has been heard of concerning him until Tho telegraphic dispatches Wero received which we publish in this mornings paper announcing his woeful end. During this Long interval of five years before that melancholy event took place where was he and How was he occupied no reply can be Given to these one lion at present beyond More conjecture. We incline to believe that he did not succeed in penetrating a has Beon heretofore thought a in Tsotigh Wellington Channel into the sea beyond and it May possibly be supposed that his ships Wero carried Down regents Inlet by Tho Ioe and lost upon the North Eastern const of Boothia isthmus whence to could have passed Overland to the Point where he perished. We deem it by far More probable however that he attempted to sail As be has been counselled in the direction of Capo Walker was drifted with the ice Down Peel sound into King William sea and that his vessels were driven on Shore and destroyed in the narrow Straits Between King William land and Adelaide Peninsula or a few Miles further South in the Bay at the Entrance of Back River. James Bossy Strait is a Channel out of King William sea into which the ships could also possibly have been in trietly and from there a Long tedious journey would have brought the adventurers to the Mouth of the Back River but a close comparison of the despatches As received with the last admiralty charts will Lead the reflecting observer Loseo Many reasons for doubting whether such a destination would have Beon sought from that surmise that sir John Franklin we hemmed in by the ice beyond escape in Victoria Strait for a very Long period per Hap years before his ship Wero actually destroyed and that during this time hts provisions none and his ships lost he would thus have found himself separated nearly seven Hundred Miles from fort Churchill on Hobo no a Bay which is the nearest Point of a Oess for Succour from civilized men. He could rely on thu Esqui Maux neither for Sua tenancy nor for sledges by which to facile tale bit Progress southward. It is possible even that he had no Intercourse with those Savages at All. No resource was left but to Bear with patience the attacks of cold and hunger and to perish in that Frozen Wilder k7the Oxford Democrat condemns As does every Otic paper in to slate the Ella Worth outrage and Ibe spirit which prompted it and at the same time speak pointedly against the attempt being made by Home presses to make political capital out of it As will be seen from the following extract which a made from a recent editorial in that paper a a the attempt to make political Capitel out of transactions of this character and to regard a thing of this nature As an act justified or defended by any religious class of the Community is certainly too Small business for men of common that such an Stumpt is made is a fact too obvious to be overlooked. Their attempts arc made when men charge such actions to the protestants of the Community or to any social or political organization Nave a tendency to uphold such outrages a if they have by word or deed Given to them and do now in any Way countenance then we say let the i Grant displeasure of an insulted people be visited upon their doctrines principle and policy. But if neither the prot Stella nor any political organization approve of such conduct As they in fact do not. The base attempt to make them responsible for it should be viewed As the offspring of prejudice and hypocrisy. It a become quite fashionable of late to certain quarters to charge every such outrage As Tho one to which we have referred to the know nothing. Whether they Are built of them or not we do not r they Are to Hope they will receive their just Reward. No society or organza Ion whether political or religious Eon or ought to be tolerated in this country which upholds such outrages. It would seem however much More candid and charitable much More in accordance with True american policy As Well As religious toleration to View the principle of this organization in Tho Light in which their own published organs present them rather than in the Light of Assumption and prejudice. The Organ of that association says a a we do not oppose the Catholic religion but we oppose its followers because they attempt to incorporate it into the to Dira a rms nos of the country. We oppose it tooth and Nail not is a religion but As it is a a treacherous mine of political according to this there is no Effort on their part to wage War on the Catholic religion a on foreigners in general in their proper place or on the consciences of men but they firmly oppose the designs and efforts of a religious sect managed by foreigners when it attempts to Gaiu by intrigue or otherwise the Ascendancy in the policy and politics of the country. While therefore there a nothing in their principle arguments or declarations which can warrant these fashionable charges and innuendoes culminated against ail american association it is certainly to be honed that thu american people will not be frustrated in the Pursuit of any Good object or measure by clamor and political prejudice.
