The Ohio Organ Of The Temperance Reform (Newspaper) - July 22, 1853, Cincinnati, OhioThe Ohio Organ of the Temperance Reform. A a a a a a fall to t4 time May seem to be far hid in the Amer Etoir Wirob to 222. Deep Vista of the future yet if we a a Bro Clark while writing on Busi y cease not our efforts the fire May be Ness i would just say Hatour division kindled which shall continue to Blaze above named is not yet three months j until future generations shall be co Noide our charter bearing Date March j Vinced of the exceeding sinfulness of 12, 1853. It is a legitimate offspring of st. Paris division no. G28, and is proud to acknowledge so Noble a Parent. These two divisions named Are the Only ones in the country West of mad River. Since our organization to have broken in upon the enemy s ranks and some of his heretofore unflinching soldiers have heard the com nand a a right about face a and have enlisted under our Banner and sire now doing Battle gloriously a in the cause of Temperance. Our prospects Are quite cheering. Our influence for Good is already Felt. The efforts put j Forth by our enemies to cause our Over j throw is sufficient proof of this. But armed with the panoply of truth and right we go Forth nothing daunted j in certain Assurance that a a truth is j mighty a and by the Blessing of heaven will prevail. A k like most Small places Millerstown j has been a hard one and our neigh a the dark sin of intemperance and. Shall be constrained to add fuel to the fire until the last drop of alcoholic Poison be consumed and Man stand Forth redeemed from its awful effects. May god in his Wisdom hasten the time in a love purity and Fidelity a i am yours Vav y. V John Russell. Near Millerstown 0., june 6, 1053. For he Organ. Hamilton county 0. >1arriso�. July 12th, 1853.Bro. Czark a believing that All Good news in regard to the Temperance movement would be acceptable and encouraging to those who Are engaged in fighting for this most righteous cause i propose through your invaluable paper the Organ to inform them of what is going on in this a a i might say by Way of in trod us Boring Village of Westville a harder j ton that Harrison is really a Beauty Quot the former however i am Happy to Way through the influence of the friends of the Temperance cause is somewhat improved but the latter still maintains its notoriety. But for Westville even there is Hope. On passing through it a few weeks since i counted nine empty barrels and kegs with their Heads smashed in lying in front of what had been an Irish dog x a a. J. J o i Gery but which had met its Fate a few nights previous having had its con i Iten is rolled out , the streets and served after the fashion of the a Maine j by the Way i think the feeling in favor of the Maine Law is stronger in this county than Ever before. Dec a i i fully and healthily a situated country town of about fifteen Hundred inhabitants. It is situated on the White water River ten Miles from the Mouth. A useful and important canal which however owing to the High flood of last Winter has been out of repair until within the last two weeks it is now again in full operation from Cincinnati passes through this place and terminates at Cambridge Indiana. I a Short line Railroad from the City i Here Onward to Indianapolis is strongly talked of and will undoubtedly Ere two years shall have passed be built. But with All these pleasing prospects in View there is a Curte resting j the place which will be the o upon cause of cations Are put Forth even by those a a dark spot always1, being upon its his outside of and. Tem Eranee or Braniza. Is t�s�, outside of any Temperance Organiza Tion that they will support no Man for a legislative office who is not fully a tory. The curse consists As perhaps you have already conceived in. The detestable and obnoxious use and Sale the Day following both in the after Teru Oon and evening Bro. Edwards addressed us on Temperance in a very Able manner. His discourse was Well thought of by All. His audience was slim in the Day time but at night quite a number were in attendance a great Many of the fair sex were there with smiles and cheering countenances to encourage us and it did encourage us too. The ladies and i believe they Are knowing to the fact can exert a great influence among the sterner part of Mankind and in this great Reform they should and it is their duty to do it they Are doing it too they Are the innocent sufferers at the hands of this grim monster intemperance and. Nothing should be left undone which would facilitate the extermination of the monster from our land. Bro. Edwards has promised us that he together with Bro. Williams would be Here on the 22d insl., and give a course of lectures. .1 am glad of that we have Long needed something of the kind. O v a a 4besides the Fons of Temperance we have a prospering Section of the cadets of Temperance they have been organized but a Short time and now number about thirty. Now All that is wanting is the daughters of Temperance and then i think we All can do much More Good in addition to what has already been done. The ladies Are beginning to Rouse up and All hat is necessary is a Strong minded woman to take the Lead and All would follow. It is a path perhaps in which they would find Many disadvantages but in the end they would be amply rewarded in finding peace and Contentment shed abroad in the a land. May that time soon Roll around j i look for it when we have a Maine Law or something better in Ohio. You May count upon a Good number Here who will vote for Temperance men i to fill our legislative Halls. God Speed the cause. Respectfully yours f. And its w de spread Chirip at stretch their Gulfy jaws to belch its hissing lava of moral death through every Rill of human society. A a while Black damnation legions scream with Joy a intemperance like the rumbling convulsing Subterran Ous sound of an earthquake is heaving and rocking our moral world. Of horror intemperance hath hurled its unfortunate victims into the darkly shrouded gloom of eternity s a fathomed gulfs. There on its scoreless Waves their shrieking ghosts Are cast. But More anon. Yours in l. P. And f. J. G. A. Committed in favor of w As a beverage of intoxicating liquor.

L la i _ a r for the Temperance org an Guernsey county Ohio. New Gortz Isles july 10th, 18&Quot 3. Bro. Cary a i a Elitife boy feel no i the Way to Stop it. \ in Philadelphia one Day lately a respectable looking Man by the name of Richard Luule who occasionally gets drunk was before judge Kelly for sentence having been convicted of an assault and Battery with intent to kill. He had stabbed an acquaintance in a fight in four different places. Judge Kelly in sentencing him said a it waa my duty a few Days since to sentence a Man to twelve years imprisonment for using a knife just As you did. His Case grew out of a meeting with a number of his acquaintances at a drinking shop of sunday. The place was full and the fight was with an acquaintance. Just your base precisely. Yours occurred near the same place. But there was this difference in your Case a the Man you stabbed was Able to be in court and testify against you because you happened to strike the Fleshy part of his body the other sent his victim to another world. By the merest Chance you were saved twelve years imprisonment. You pc Aye proved a Good character when you Are sober. When you Are out of prison and about to drink again just think that you see the Gallows at the Bottom of hourglass the use of the knife has become too common and we intend to make an Effort to Stop it i therefore shall give you a sentence proportionate to our Rule and fix the period at seventeen months in the Eastern Penitentiary. This is the penalty for getting 1 a a otherwise this damning Sou i destroy Ting Poison on the a Sabbath As Well As on other Days. There is no distinction As to How or when it is sold so the of Jeet to make Money is attained. Their own happiness present and eternal As Well As the happiness of their victims is entirely cast aside As of minor import. Besides these we have a distillery and brewery Beautiful appendages Are they not ? indeed i am almost ashamed to own that such things exist Here but the truth must prevail reputation by ribbing the pen for the columns of the Organ. It May be thought quite impertinent for a youth to figure in the columns of a widely extended Temperance Sheet. A i simply wish focal i the Atten Tion of sons of Temperance to a few important facts. Sons of Temperance a tis yours to Stop the indignant rolling Waves of intern be ranee., a tis yours to to u r the -1 soothing flame of soft compassion upon the ramparts reared around the heart of would that we had a Maine liquor by intemperance. Tis yours to brought fairly before the people and duty not party consulted Champaign would be Good for a Maine Law representative this fall. I done to believe she can Send any other kind. There is an unconquerable spirit abroad among the friends of Temperance which says a a our efforts in behalf of Mankind shall no longer be futile our wishes shall no longer be disregarded our petitions shall no longer be slighted our fellow Ohio it then would not be my painful duty to record what i have. But we will have it i feel most confident we will. The people of Ohio have aroused themselves and Are determined to shake off the accursed Fetters which have so Long unchained them. But to speak More particularly of what i aim against o the shafts of keen expulsion the fiery Demon of souls who is hurling Quot Down the sinking masses to the open avenues where exposed on Hellas Black verge their cold affections sleep. A tis subvert the swelling floods of intemperance which in foaming vengeance Rolls its Adverse tide and meets and howls and Breaks and had at first intended from dashes upon the pillars of human lib 0 170 i _ a Pic Vand try the Cal a in Ute do i which i have considerably digressed in regard to what the friends of temper in slighted our Steilow Man Jance Are doing and i will Endeavor to longer topple Over the fright be As Brief As possible for i have Al shall no Ful precipice of intemperance when the Arm. Of Law can save. The wives ready occupied 1 fear too much time. Bro. M. M. Edwards was Here on last and children of the poor inebriated a Friday and reorganized a division of i plead us with their bitter cries and tears to put Forth additional exertion. The Prosperity of our country requires it the cause of god demands it and every feeling of humanity Calls loudly upon us to do our duty and by the Blessing of heaven we will a then Reader let us labor in the glorious cause nor cease vigilantly to exert ourselves until there shall remain no further conquests to be won no More drunkards to Rescue from their impending Fate. And although that the sons of Temperance for you must know the Temperance people from some cause or other a ear or two since became quite remiss in their duty and permitted the division to go Down. But i am Happy to say a resurrection has been accomplished and under the most auspicious Circum stand Ces. A general interest seems to pervade the breast of every Temperance Man and woman to fight for Temperance and do Al things possible for the promotion of the cause. On saturday erty. A tis yours to thwart damnation a pitchy gulfs. Sons of Temperance a Noble work is yours. A tis yours by concentrated action to Complete the glorious Tern j Perance Reform. A tis yours with All other Good Temperance men to equip yourselves for the approaching War to fight a greater Battle than that which was fought at Lundyy a Lane. A greater work is yet to be accomplished. In Temperance is now rolling in lightning driving thunders in fierce forked flashes along the rocking heavens in ten thousand peals of sullen what and thence swiftly shooting Down the winding Dell till on the deluged Plains of Ohio a dreadful desolation is poured. Intemperance in tremendous thunders burst shaking a shuddering world drinking in England. In Baily of the National Era now in England writes Home from London a v a i t i have never before been so profoundly impressed with a the policy of the Maine liquor Law never before it Felt so deeply grateful to the persevering advocates of Temperance in my own country. Intoxicating liquor in a some form of other is almost uni ver j Sally used in London. You can not j spend a sociable evening with a Friend without the decanter being produced and if you Call at a Clergyman a House j you Are Aske 1 to refresh yourself with a Glass of wine. It is useless to at i tempt any Reform among the poorer classes while this bad habit prevails among respectable and wealthy people. This is a lesson Long ago Learned to America but they have yet to learn it in England. They do not recognise the truth that drinking in High places encourages it in Low places. A that the common use of intoxicating spirits is in itself an evil an abuse that temperate leads to intemperate drinking and is appealed to in mitigation or excuse of its enormity. Ragged schools dormitories for the poor Bath a houses for the uror ing classes All Are doing a Good work but they can accomplish very Little comparatively so Long As the poor spend their earnings waste All their substance and make brutes of the Selv amp by Gin drinking. The Temperance move a meat in England is far behind the times. -.�4 in a country Grava Yard in Haw Jersey la a a Tona with this Here Ilea the body of John Jones a Ala never held an Osfie an honest Man
