No Stoles inan of enlarged views will place it on that ground. InJed. it is not attempted. On vhat ground, then, can .it be justified?

It' it is beneficial to the community, by throw into th" hands of a lew iiK-aflie, which tdiould be free to all: If it, is .not Injudicial, lb en, .-urely, no .license should lie grained. The Legish lurohave no inn Ml right to license a traffic, which is not be official. If the trafiiu is wrong, a legislnl ive license will not make 't riglil.

The only possible g round, on which' the hccncfisys'tcin can be defended, is, Ha t n ,-rnural tale by nil, ul ploa.ure, would be .njurious, mid that the .hcenso operates to retrain the traffic w.ll.i.T reasonable limit. The business being Iaw, 'nl. legislative in terference is uiijuslifiable, nnil worse than useless as a direction lo ind ividual oxerliun. Men should be left to pimu v their private hn-ineti in their own way. Jl there is any in uiui - .. . ood reason lo restrain mo u.-iiuc ai mi. me reason is conclusive to show that it thuuld bo prohibited altogether. , That the the general use or spirits, drink, is injurious, is too dear to bo dis poved in Iho present statu ol jiiibltc inlor Innuon. Tunc has been, when iho prop dies mid nnituo of btiiiiuhiting liquors were not understood, and the use became very general, in iiiiuuch that we have been culled a nation of drunkards. The fiver it y of this reproach is in i'h truth, and the exertions ofthe patriotic cannot bo better directed than in removing the cmifc. That the uso of I'qnnr tend to itnpnvcr r-ti iho indiviilual who uw it, need not be proved. It will be admitted by all. There is ns little doubt that, our taxes for the support of the poor mid the expensed of Ihe administration of criminal law am increas ed by it. Thcs" expenses arc not paid by those who occasion thrni but, are thrown upon the sober, orderly nnd indusirious portion of comniilnily. If the use of liquor tended in any way to benefit thine who drink, the expense would be cheerfully borne by the benevolent; but when it is known mid admitted, that, in proportion to the extent of the use, id the ini'cry and dgreedatioii of tliou who drink, the subject becomes revolting. The thief who steals a sixpence miy be sent to the .State prison, mid yet, under color of a legal traffic, tliu hard earnings of the poor are taken from them, mid, what is worse, they are sent home, diprivednf slreng'h and reason, to a famished and nlll cted family l!ow long hhnll this degrading mid demor alizing cetirso lu tolerated for the pmful gam of a few ! Vnu r petitioners consider it oppros-dve that one cent should be taken Iroui their earnings to defray the expenses occasioned by tin traffic; but when, as nil know, th" amount of publ.c burthen is enormously inercaed, your petitioners consider they have a right to expostulate in strong anil decided terms. . There are other views of the subject, which cannot fail to arrest the attention ol every well wisher to his race. Our gov ernment rests upon the broad foundation of equal rights, and every power that can be exercised has its commencement in that of oniverral suffrage. Wo can hardly the stream to How full and clear, while the fountain i impure. Insa mournful fact that in ninny p'iri.s of the (Slate, our election not only occasion ttic free iwuof liquor, but are someliniei carried by it. Wuat secu rity have we, if the measures of our gov eminent can, in any way, be nfleetcd by the use of liquor? We speak as unto wise men. The use of liquor lends to destroy the intellect and reduces man lo the condition of u boost. The security of person and prop crty, is but a small partVn the doty of good governments. They have a graver duly in charge, that of elevating man to the high est point of winch his nature is capable. And He, in whose hands governments arc but n-A ruinenls for the liappino-s of uf rational children, will not bold them guilt lcsJ, who neglect llii? charge. One of the chief excellences of a republican govern ment, is its tendency, if rightly administer e l. beyond all oilier governments, to lead the pc Mile on to the Inglie-'t attainments in nod moral cultivation. In this point of view, the Hlj'ct of I In.; pel it ion nddrc-r-es itself, with p'Puhnr force, lo w consideration of I he General, Assembly and d-mmnds great firmness in the application of I lie proper remedies. Your petitioners beg have to call the attention of your honorable body to a fad, winch may not cxi-l in other towns, lo the aine extern thai it does here, to the vai ni-rease of the number of foreigners. They have iiieren-i'd beyond all former propor tion, and fiom their general de-l it ul ion ot character, we have ma-on lo he alarmed for Ihe con-i qoenees. They land on our whnrve-', mid enter our village Willi no knowledge of our customs, with no respect for our institutions, and no minciplcs lor their guidance. They in.iuii." ivelv wend their way lo the daily and nightly haunts of intemperance, and our own eiti.'jn.s are among the panders of iheir appetites. Strangers to moral cultivation, they seel; only the gratification of n grovelling appe tite and sink hi the the scale of human ex istence, until they become not only drones anil oregs 01 society, noi corrupt, anil ror rupting masses, procreating their own hk"-ni.-s.

Vf, ns your petitioners believe, iho nian ufnclure, sale, nnd u-'eof liquor is injurious, the only remaining question is, ns to the moans' of (impressing it. Two modes present themselves. To leave the mailer entirely to iho regol'ilion of public opinion, or lo prohibit n by law.

All that remains then is for Ihe several count ies to organize mid mako their own nominations for Senators, and this can be better done nl homo than nt Montpelicr. Under all the circumstances, it sliikeg us that this tax might well be dispensed with one half of which judiciously impropriat ed in circulating correct information milling the people would produce vasty more liene lit in the parlv. These are our views subject however to the decision of a major. ily of our political brethren. Wo understand lhat tliu Rev. Ceo. G.

Urooks I'l-q., of Albany, lhat of I'uot, before the Literary Societies ol the University of Ver. muni at the, approaching Couiiuchcetiioiit. Whil-l the Globe is charging the present embarrassments of the country upon the merchants and businesi men, it may not be amiss to remind the people of the agency the government ofiieers themselves, have hud in theso "wild speculation." The truth is, that Kendall & Co.nfter gelling piissessinn of the Treasury, used it to their heart's content for the purposes ofspcciila lion, nnd when they had made investments enough, then clamored for n specie circo lar, to enable them to dispose of their funis &o. nl mi ndvance. And further it appears that Kendall was paid 50,000 by a hind company for the beur (it of Ins inlluonco at Washington. Tlio following extract from Ilalleli's report of Ihu proceedings of ihe investigating comiiiiiteu last winter, shows pretty dislinctly what would havo been proved, had the majority of lhat commiitce permitted the truth lo appear. Jiut, be it remembered, this committee, (hough o.-lee.
