Betting of the Liquor Dealer* at Kings Tie Liquor Dealer* Society of Kings county met la Brooklyn last evening, in order to perfect ite organization and arrange a systematic plan of opposition to the Pro hibitory law, pursuant to the following notice Important Mi*tiwo,? Tlis Soeiety of Liquor Dealers of King* county call a public meeting at the hotel at Vettrs. To\nkeo A Elopkiaa, Montana plaea, near Court atraet, on Monday afternoon, at 2o'oiook I'. M., fjr the elec tion ot offlcaia. enrollment or member* of the aanooiatioa, and to adopt a ayatamof action in relation to the tyraunloai three o'clock in the billiard room of Mesars Toynbee St Hopkins, when Mr. Alfred Ronck *>i called to the chair, and Mr. P. Clemitaon acted aa secretary of the boiy. Mr. B.Fkehch, of New York, oaeen Jed tne stand and taid-He had came orer to attend the meeting of hi* fellow traders in Brooklyn but he wax sorry to see so few of them present on such an important occasion. It w;ulil appear a* if there wa* soma hanging back? a fact which, ir so, Le could understand the reason or, and he woulj call on every man engaged In the trade ? every dealer in liquor? no matter how bumble, to come forward manfully and euatain a cause which was tneir own. They had a right to do so. and their right, was just as good as the right which the Her. Dr. TyDg poieexsed to oomeout to injure them. Their cause was exactly the same a* that of the iren in New York: and at the late meeting at Tammtny Hall there they had a* respectable a list of men act ing both ss presidents ani vice presidents, and on their committees, as were ever presented before ky any bciy to the public. There they did not meet as botel keepers, as importer;, or aa spirit merchant), but emphatically as liquor dealer*. (Cheers.) In looking over tbe paper* this mornicg in order to find out the piece of meet Dg of this body, he found that another as KociaVcn, called the Care on League, was to assemble to night in the Mercantile library room, Aator place, New York, and that its members were to be addressed by the Rev. I>r. Chapin. He wa*, in fact, the only speaker of not* to be found in the city who would condescend to addiese a boly composed of informers. In this age of enl ghtenment, and at th a time of the day, it was un neceeeary for him to characterize an informer one of a class of m:-n ever held in detestation by the peeple of every country on the earth. In laying down their plan of organization they should remember that 1' they au: ceeded'in defeating the new law? rum? they would only defeat it up to the 9th of December next. The very seme Legislature would meet at that time which passed the bill, and if it required any amending or tinkering, the same hypocrite* and fanatics would stand realy to do it, cr eveu pats a new act, if required But if the liquor denier* were united they would lay the foundation of an interett wbich, at the next fail elections, would sweep those fsnatics and their interest clean oil tne political field. (Cbeers.) To do this the dealers must be united and bsniah party divisions frcm their ranks. They should attend and watch the primary election* and nominations of candidates. Whig* should watch in the wh;g committee*, and democrats in the democratic, and if three men were in the field, or two, the liquor deal ers should all vote for cne man who would f up port their interests. Ihu* they would be a "balance of power" patty, the support of which would be courted by all the others in the State and in the United State*, tin this plan the greatest enemy a man had, personally, may become bis best friend, politically and puolicly, and the dealers would wield a vast and overwhelming power. If Brooklyn became as well organized as New fork is, you will not find a party who will dare to nominate a test a law legally, you must break it first; therefore the men of Kings county must sell, and defend the prose cutions of tte informers without any shrinking. If they did so, they would be able to employ the fanatics in ths Courts for a year at least, and he would engage that New York would furnlah them with legal work for five jears t? come. (Cheers ) But let there bs no flinch ing?fall into line, and stand there shoulder to shoulder. It wan alio essential to have harmony intbe election of oflutrs. He kad endeavored to gat Brooklyn orgaolzed last fall, but they would not come forward, trusting that the Legit la ture would not attempt to pass such a law ; but they forgot that hypocrites and fsnat cs do not stop atasythlog. Even no ir the Caraon league li not idle as they are, although it was clear that all Ucetfles would be swept a spy after tho first of May. Many people at tribute the passage of this lav to ehuroh influence; bu 1 .say that It waa conceived at d originated intbe church At all the Maine !*>- meetings ever held, flieout of every ?ii speakers were tnin sters of the church, and although the law was dr xwn up by the temperance men at Alba d y, ?i<h the help of CnanceUor \Vnl*orth, tuere is no doubt bnt it was originally drafted by churaamen. This affords evidence to me tbat in this country the church men are anxiously striving for a Unnn with the St tte (Ciners.) However, it is too late for churchmen to Beak t swtep away the barriers ereoted by our forefathers, and the safeguard* of Thomas Jefferson, which continued Irom li87 to 1846, against tne encroachments of the church. (Hear.) The ministers are novassu'niog a near office; and if ttey do so, they should abandon the pulpit, as they catLot "aeive God and the devil." (Laqgh'er ) Ibis occiety should organize for Willi imsburg, Green point and Brooklyn- organize by warJs? aud then a central convention cculd lie easily called. I*t no man's name be entered unless he step up and write it do?n, subscribe to your rules and Fund in hi* initiation feo of ten dollar*. He mutt pledge himself to support your candidate* alao, both in the State an I United States (Iectior*. Receive no sent money, bat let the man ccme up with it, and that with energy. In New York, any man, importer, distiller, grocer or brew er, not joining, will be looked upon aa s. greater enemy than the men wbo drew up the law. You ahould let all such men know that here; alsa, record the naxei of jr ur member* by warO*, and keep a liat of these who re ln?e to join, in order that you may know your friends from your enemies. Write drwn the names ot the re cusants in red ink. At tbe elecfon, you mux*, not know claases, nor must yon in your organizat'on An humble Get man grocer's vote will be juat as goo 1 as toat of a hotel keeper, and I hope nnna will balance tuat of the Rev Dr. Tycg. snd we bave plenty of Germans to balance all tbefother reverend gentleman. (Cheers.) Mr. French tummed up by an energetic appeal far united actirn and retired amidst loud applauds, when an enthusiastic vote of thanks wax parsed to him for hi* attendance and speech, to which he replied taat every man should now "do bis duty." Colonel Garmctkr, of Williamsburg, then addressed the meeting, and said he was fully identified with them as a dealer, and he endorsed all the remark* of Mr. Lrebch. When a clergyman who do <e J :b rough a ser mon on Sunday, ar.d dosed through the week In an arm ebalr, wanted a church built, or " donation visit " from the it wive*, with money, or a pound of tea, he did not inqnlte bo wit was earned, but took it: aivlif theTiotel keepers, importers, grocer*, bar keepers, botler* corker*, glass-blowers, ceopers, bias* founder*, bar tenders, and other* engaged in the trade, or depending on it for sup port, organized against tbe churchmen, ffilir theolo giacs would soon have hungry stomach* and thread bare coats. (Hear. hear). Their pretensions are more intolorabie than those of the English persecutors, who drove away their forefather!. However, at tbe next flection, they would ahow them a little of the spirit of tbe Boston " Tea Boys." The resolution* of th* last meeting were then read, and also a report from the committee appointed to no minate officer* for tbe Miciety. Mr. F Swirr, of Williamsburg, said that he kept three rum miUw " (store*), and had a deep interest in the question. He hoped tbat no man would be eleoiei pre sident of tbe body, unless he were in the liuuor trale, a* he did not wihh men tc sneek in for polU'.caJ purposes. All the officers should be liqutr dealers. Colonel Gardk^kk called on Mr Swift to define bin po sition. He did not wl*h fir the presidency of the so ciety ; and if Mr. Swift alluded to him, he would *ay that he bad told out tbe Fulton House; but if be had, he had purcbaeed the American, and was still a liquor dealer. A ballot was then taken, when the following officers were elected ; ? l'rtritltnt ? Thoaw* Toynbee Vice- PmiJcnt? Alfred Roack. frflcti/rer? John Johnson. Secretary? Win. P. C'em'teon. 7i n/lerf ? Jnmes Wilde, John Snyder, Frarcis Swift. Finance Committee ? Henry Wiggins, Andrew Harrison, Frederick Oh*. The meeting then adjourned until Wednesday next, at 2 o'clock P. M. County.

It waa mach to be regretted that a larger andlence wae not present to hear thia popular and eloquent lec turer. The meeting waa called to order by the chairman of the League, Mr. Mahlon T. Hewitt, who presided upon thia occasion. The chairman made a short Introductory speech, in which he eulogised the Maine lew, condemned Intemperance, and put la a goed word fer the Carson l eague. In conclusion, ht said he regretted that the audience would be disappointed in cet hearing Hon. Joaeph Hoite, who wae advertised to addre.** tho most ing.

">(*> *n'1 Bt ***** *>9> (be a'orld, tip* hi* decanter and ,aiP* ?>!* w|n? *la??, art<l tills hi* frieni this law ia all ver7 *>ut be ttaaka .it a little fanatical, and tot 1 " about all thtt he knows, thioV* or cares about it. I\ 18 opponents of the Maiae law tell us that in legislating about liquor we hare confound*] lti ttse with its abuse* Now. we have not dow* aay sunh thing ; so far aa it ia useful, it may be had now, Toe new law baa left every necessary loophole open for too uae that there is in lk|? or. If a man need* it for a (lira u an tor medicinally, ?) oa the proscription of a physi cian it can b* ob'alnefl, We have not cut oil the n? of the article, but only ita aC'use. We have aimed at, ?od we hope we have hit the a'ark, and will stop its abuw. To me liquor an a bev-. rage it is to a rain whit spurs i are in the aide ot a horse kt prtsk* him up, it makes him go alittle faster, but b? can't live upon it? (L*u?ta- ' ter and load applause ) L o you Wk us taat this abuse j should oot be cbecaed ? Do you say that humuiity doea not call for and Ranctien this law? Look at in I Mvsges and answrr me Look at the hosts at Ifce dead arrlsiag from their grave* where they hav? been placed by rr.m, and answer me. Thus host of the dead that hare fallen from rum arise from their graves, more awful, and In numfteri larger than all ?? <*ead that hare gone down to their grave i from all thy battle fields of the world, fro as A r be la to Waterloo. (Loud applause.) But we are told that this is a nura> tuary lav ? thaflt la an innovat.ou upon our chartered rights. Vhy, how many laws are there upou the statute books as restrictive as this, already? Has a m\a now, even a right according to law to dress ai he pleases. Ltt any one here diess himself in female garments and walk down Broad nay, and sec If the la?* dun t deny him this privilege. (Applause.) Has a man a right to neep a pet tiger on his door stoop merely for his own amuse ment, and to bite his neighbor? (More applause.) No rights are restricted by a law that acts for the good of the greatest number. Special and individual rights al wajs give way for publio good. Why, upon this very ground tbe Declaration of Independence w?* based and maintained. Special rights were violated when against George the Third a whols nation stood up, in victory or death, to stand or fall for their independence The rights of the odicers of the crown were violated by this opposition ; the rights of all Interested in the stamp act were violated, but the greatest benefit far the whole community triumphed over all other consideration!, and these special rights were buried in our nation's independence. (Long and loud applauie. ) But men tell us we should have de pended upon moral suasion ; tbut forced morality won't answer? men cud not be forced iato abstemiousness. Well, we have triec moral suasion Year after year wo have preached against Intemperanse. From the pulpit and from the zoetrum we bave depicted the curse ot rum selling ; and in defiance of all our teaoiilng, tbe traffic has gone on, and ruin has spread bef r<? our eyee. Wnat has been the answer of the rumsellsr to our moral suasion? Wrapping himself up in his own selfishness and his intersbts, he says of his victims whom ke has ruined, "Let others look out lor them selves. If he drinks, gets .diunk and ia ruined, the fault Ib his, not mine." This ia now the an-iver we give tbe rumteller, wt en he tells us we are ruluing his iutlness piosoects : "If our law knocks the decanters out of your bands and uptlps your glasses, all we can say to you is, "Look out for yourselves.'' (Loua applause.) You have taught ua our answer an I we give It to you? "You must look out for yourselves " (Rs newed applaute ) But, gentlemen, after all, I must ray I have a liking for this spirit of the liquor dealers in opposition to this law, that is alone my regard for tho? wto are only mongrel opponents Those who op pons It because it restricts their a petites are contemptible in deed. But the oposition of the liquor dealers has a sort of a dating buccanering spirit in it. They hoist their black flag to the mast hoad and defy opposition. Toeir interest are at stake, their property is at stake. Daring to the extreme they level their swivels, whether consti tutional or otherwise, at the good old ship Prohibition as sbe comes looming down on her 4th of July rig, and with the stars and stripes flaunting at her mast nead, and if they give us a broadside we are able to stand the shot and return it with interest. (Kntnu elastic app'ause ) In this Maine law, gentlemen, we bave not made a sudden descent upon the liquor dealers. It is not a sudden storm which has over taken ttem, but one which gave Indications of its com in* years ago. The squall gathered around the rumsel lers lsst j ear, end to them the heavens were dark and louring, whin tbe veto of Gov. Seymour broke through what was to tbem the gathering Ump?sv and with his veto made the heavens all clear again But t iey should have known ttat tbe elements of the storm were still in tbe flimament. and it would gather again. It has come up again, and with good earnest it bM upon them, and it ?itb alt tueso wnrLlne*, the rum eiler has not cup-nod of bl - stcek, It l.e has not taken in sail and pr (i rided f< r the ; ntbtring storm, why ihe ron-equ-nces arc urrn bis o-a h-*1, and do om but nil own neslejt iatob'eme. ( ? augUur stdrnnewed applause ) Again, gentlemen. it is tot J jiu, tbat ouainees is going to suffer so much frcm law. Whv, thick how It will suffer Nine millions of bnabel* of grain la this State has actually g?ne tj tlir distillery.

(Long an-l eatbu hias'ie applause, and cries of " Thst's so, ' That s the talk.") >ow, in ooncluslon, g^ntlem'n, as to ths moral effect cf this law, I say it wil> as a law, exert all ^the moral Influence that any law d*s upon the statute book. If we are to trast only to moral suasion, ani never appeal to law to advatce monlity, tu?n abolish the law for punishng theft, murder, or aoy other cr me. Ihe tame argument that would abolish the lla ne Uw, as far ss its moral effect is concerned, would a o ish an the other aots upon our statute book* for the suppres elon of vice. This is the law of the last, ani the dlgni tv of be be the Uw of the land must demand for it re_ spect and obedience. I repeat, this will all the good that any otner law will enacted for the morals of the community. But even It it did not, I am for it Even if It did not make tbe sales one glass less, I am for it? for I hold it to be owiog to the dlgoity cf a btate tli?t its vo ce should be on the side of morality, whether the practices of Its people are or Every State owes i: to the woild at large that its otatute boots at least should speak on the side o' joettce ani morality. (Great applause ) And, finally, gentU men, we bave the Ms'ne law, and let Its opponents epeak ot it as ther *"'1. the experiment will have to be tried in the great 8wate cf Ktw York, and I believe it will be success ful (Ciies of?

It appears that the "metrie outlaw, Robin Hool," figured largely in the gvoe* instituted in Englant Is honor of Muy. Maid Marion, the original Qaeen of th* Jfaj, was not, it we are informed aright, a maid at all, but the leman? rome say, the wife? of the outlaw ; anil it was among the merry rogaes under hie command those festivals originated. The dress of llaid Marion, and of ?11 the Queen rof the May after her, (until th? invention of Paria milliners and ilressmakera,) was * blue sureeat, with white cuffs, the skirts of the rob* yellow, aad re J stomacher, with a yellow lace la oross bar.

But though these excursions worn exceedingly pleasant, if chroniclers are to be believed, they bad a dreadful (?fleet upon the morale of the afore said young maidens, whose reputations suffered quite a* much aa the flower beds. The nobility aad gentry In dulged in this amiable amusement, aad aa ioatanee to on record of Henry the Eighth and Queen Katlitrtoa having observed it. Though May ia considered an unlucky raoatb for mar riages, it ii not for courtship; and a young tody toH* ua how the jracticeJ a divination:? last May day fair, I searched to And a wait That might my lover's name reveal. I' poo a gooseberry buah a nnail I found? For alwaya snails near sweetest fruit abound. I seized tbe vermin: heme I quietly aped, And on the health the milk-white embers spread. Slow era sled the snail-, and it I right oan spelt, In the solt ashes marked a curious L. O, may tbia wonderous omen lucky prove? For L is found in lubberkin and love. It was the Puritanx who first succeeded ia bringing May games inte disrepute, and from the boavy blow aad sore dlacouragement they received at their hands they have never recovered. In our days of prohibitory aad Sunt ay lfquor laws, It la refreshing to look back an the times of Charles I., wban the follow!^- law was enact ed. It beara date Ootober 18, 1033. Sing Charles de creed that? For his good peoplre lawful recreation after the and af divine service, his good people be not disturbed, letted or discouraged from any lawful recreation, such aa dancing, either for men or women, arcb?ry for men, leaping, vaulting, or anv other aucn harmless reorea tiona, nor from having or May gamna, Whltson alee, and 14 or rice dances, and the setting up of Maypelea and other sports therewith used, so a* the same be had in due and convenient time, without impediment or neglect of dlviie service. After the execution of Charles, >iher aad very differ ent laws were placed en the statr.ts book, and sinoe that time May cuatcma have almost, died out to England. But not so on tbe eentinint; there to thia day may ha seen tbe Maypole and it* appurtenances of daneiag and drinking. Dr. Clarke te'la ua that in Russto May Is ob served with great trlat. Thy townspeople adjourn to forest side aad fountain, and beneath the trees upon the green sward, ting and dance to the music of tbe Balalai ka, and manifest their joy by shoutings and tumultuous revelry. The clapping of bands, the shrill notes of the Russian pipes, extravagant and even indecent dancing, are the onlec af the day. In oar own eountry, it must be confessed, May day to looked forward to as anything but a reason of roomette* and Mansonient. At this time of the year a periodieel madnSHs seises us; there is an extravagant delusion abread that somebojy else's are better than onr oven; aad so, initead of dancing around Maypolee, wa throw our homes Into confusion, pay cartsaen outra geous prices for smashing our furniture, lose enr temper, sleep all night ca the floor, and indulge in all the per plexities and annoyances of movtog day.
