In the first place a assumes that my communication is in favor of a return to he old Law regulating of spirituous iqnijrs1" this assertion is absolutely false ind maliciously originated in the author As no language contained in that article can pos ably be tortured into a construction which will convey any such idea. A then proceeds to will try to Iber where a with Many have bad lost Light of the Light Means and run through tit Mazt of the Multi Tiedt Lown by the winds of popular excite rent or some selfish desire of the keen demands of a vicious have wrecked their frail barque on the Rock of disappointed my stars. What a area Down to All protested opinions. The Rock of disappointed Hope must a a to column of Adamant against which ambitious men Are Apt to wreck their generous Aspira Lions. But whose bark i ask has been wrecked is is it that of those who have adhered to washingtonian principles and stood firm non the ground of Well tried policy Are they who have taken a Perma nent stand against legislative enactments up on this subject end boldly asserted Ribeir position Boie who Hare been wrecked in their in prophetic sayings and demonstrated false in the sophistry of their reasoning far from it. They who secured the enactment of this Law by the legislature and supported it at the polls Are these who have been disappointed in their narrow Hopes of self elation and whose say Ingi were As false As their position has be come ridiculous. They have ventured with their frail barque non a dangerous sea and have upset their cargo of political policy in a Whirlpool of Ribeir own creation. Not Only has this entirely speculative measure proved abortive h5 All its multifarious ramifications but it hat a was foretold by its opposes prostrated the influence of temper Ance societies in Ench a manner that years of controversy will be required if Ever we shall be Able to give stability and Perma Nency to any body of organized Temperance men. And the phrenic of their Burn ing indignation at unexpected contingencies they meanly seek to keep the shameful result of their own mismanagement on the Heads of innocent ones upon whom the Isopo Sibil Ity can never rest. Did they who supported this Law at the polls after having adopted the measure leave it to be guarded and executed by those whom they knew were aver Rould be opposed to it can they attach the blame of the Laws not being executed to the same individuals upon whom they sought to enforce its obedience Are they than who earnestly opposed this legislative interference the ones at whose door the shame of the result should be Laid Are such individuals the fanatics we have lost sight of the or Are Thi y the characters who at the bid Ding of hair own credulity open their Avaricio months and Swallow Down absurdities 19 Broad a creation i would not for u a Price of that sacred regard in which i h old the opinions of in honest censure a the member of society who Lent his influence to the support of this measure be Lieving it would have a Slat Are effect upon Community. And now when experience the Only True of political has proved the Law to ineffectual he will abandon it from the same principle of Honor upon which1 he previously advocated it while on the other hand the Light hearted politician who fears the frown of party demagogues dares not express a change in his political sentiment but will continue to clasp his favorite measure with All its wild contortions till its bloated deformities swell beyond the measure of his embrace and leave him the a realized victim of their o to contaminating influence. Its Hare barked Over their idol Law till shame is kindled on their Cheeks and their lips Are sealed in the presence of candid observation yet there Are some very knowing ones who still Baric in the Back grounds and Over the ruins of their dear Defeated measure.

But where Law is to the wants of society and the difficulties attending infliction of its penalties counteract and Over balance All the Good that might other wide accrue from its faithful execution it is an execration upon society and none but Disori Gani zing demagogues will attempt to Austain it a the sacrifice of an abused Community. Let me term Law As applies.
