" Flwr York, ThwridB|r, M?y~31, 18*0 The Kewi. Tbe arrival of the Pacific at this port yesterday, placet! us in possession of seven days later Intelll. gence from Europe. Her news is interesting. The announcement of the projected change of plan in the operations of tbe Allies in the Crimea seems to receive confirmation, from the fact of a secret ex pedition having been despatched in tbe direction or the Sea of Azoff, with what purpose is not known, u it returned to Balaklava in a few days, without having effected anything. The operations of the ?lege itself had been rendered temporarily imprac ticable from the heavy rains that hid fallen and filled tbe trenches with water. General Canrobert had resigned tbe chief command of the French troops to General Peliasier, and had retained merely the command of a division. The alleged motive of the former's resignation was ill health, but there can be no doubt of the factot his having been civilly cashiered by his master. No fnrther progress has been made In the peace negotiations. It is certain, however, that Austria Bud Prussia are drawing closer, and that bath Pow ers, and consequently the whole of the leissr Uermin States, will preserve a strict neutrality. Austria is plajing rather a high handed p vrt as the trustee of the common interests of tbe live Powers in the Principalities. A short time since, we bad mi ac count of a barbarous outrage and murder commit ted by an Austrian officer in Wallartiia, for which nil redress was refused. We now learn that Count Ooronlni, the Austrian Commander-in-C lief, has proclaimed martial law throughout bath 'Princi palities. It is not unlikely that Sweden will join Russia, after all. In reply to the ultimatum presented to her by the Allies, regarding the part she should take in the war, she has called out the whole of her militia. The democratic movement in Eagland has even extended to a section of the House of Lords. Tho debate on lord Ellenborough's motion bad drawn fcrth sentiments radical enough for tbe lorer home. It appears that the new Spanish Minister to Washington has not as jet been named. It had been determined to await the arrival of the next Bull from Havana before Senor Caeto's successor should be appointed. On this subject the Journal dei Dtbais of the 16th inst., has the following from Madrid, under date of the 11th:?" It is not as jet known wbo is to be tbe successor of Benor Cue to, tbe minister to the United SUtes. Whit i* certain is, that the government will not oc:upy itself either with the opinions or with the political color ?f the diplomatist that it will send to Washington." The same journal states that it is also certain that the Mexican government has refused to receive M. Antonio y Zayas, recently named Minister Plenip> tentiary to that republic in place of M. Lozuio. It is not known what oourse the Spanish governmsat means to take in the matter. M. Z ijas write* from Jelapa that he awaits orders from the government. An interesting description of the ia&uguration of the Paris Exhibition wi'l be found in our private letters. For some of the details therein contained, we are indebted to the courtesy of Prince Napoleon Ib furnishing onr correspondent with a special ticket of admission, and other facilities. In one cf our Paris letters will also b9 found some curious declarations of a member of the pre at at Fitnch government, in reference to tbe English al karce, aid what is termed " Russian progress" ia America. The cotton market yesterday, on the strength of the Pacific'! news, advancad about 40. per |b., with ?ales of about 4,000 bales. Fiour, for grides under fancy and extra, advanced about 12Je. per barrel. If icirigan white wheat sold at $2 CO, and Geneiee do. at $2 80. The receipts of corn fell olf, and prices improved, with active sales, in ilu ling par. eels to arrive and for export. Pork was fl-mer, with fair tales, CoCfoe again told pretty freely at full prices. Sugars were astive, tie sales hiving reached about 2,200 a 2,300 hfcds., the market closing firm. Freights were inactive anl rates un changed. There was again a large shipment of spade yes terday for Europe, to be followed by a considerable amount on Saturday. We understand that the nane ?gents who were the heaviest shippers by the pre vious Collins steamer were also the largest by the Baltic jesterday. ihe house which sent out the largest turn was the house of Mr. Belmont, the agent oi Hotii chiles. Tne remainder was divided up amcng otber bankers, iacludtng Brown Brothers and the agents of Barings. By an arrival at Charleston, we have advises from Havana to the 25th inst. The prevalenca ot the yellow fever and smallpox, nad created consider able excitement The seige of Cuba ceased on the 23d inst. Sujar unchanged and molasso* brisk. There is no other news. The lldermantc inqulrition iito the character and birthplace of the Chief of Police was resume! yesterday, but ai there were no refractory witnesses to examine the proceedings were rather dull. Tae only humorous feature in the whole affair was an affidavit trade by Mrs. McKeever, from which it ap pears that the worthy Cn'ef occasionally indalgod in the in*jo:?nt am lsement of writing love letters, and that be was also gui.ty of the unpardonab e crime of ridiculing, before his father's apprentices, those he received from the witnese. Bit this is not all; for it teems, wh'le he was corresponding with her, ha waa courting another. What his the Chief to say to this ? Our Washington correspondence, dited on the 28th instant, Informs of the departure 0' Governor lteeder from that city for Eaaton, Pa., where he in tends to remain for a few days before he sets oat for Kansas. President Pierce assured him that the Cabinet will not approve of his conduct with regard to the difficulty in that Territory. Thills looked upon i? a sop thrown to the South. It was thought that Kinder would be requested to resign bli olfi e, and if he refused that he would b3 removed by the Executive. Com. PauUing has been appointed by the 8ece tary of the Navy to command tbe Home squadron( in the placc of Com. McCau'.ey, whose appointment wia temporary. Tbe Know Nothing Si ate Con renMon which has been In session at Bangor, lie., adjourned yester day afternoon. No nomination was made f ir Gov ernor. Strong antl alavery resolutions were passed, with only three detecting votes, acd delegates wers appointed to th* National Conn il whl h is to as m ? b> in phfj?ielphl? ??** monti. Th? ?o-,T?n_ tion wu folly seeded, and great harmony pre vailed. A fire occurred last night, abiat 9 o'clock, in the four story tuilding No. 49 Ann street, occu pied by John F. Trow, printer and publisher of the New York City Directory. The flames spread ra pidly throughout the building, extending aome wbat into the buiidtog of No. 51, which communi cates by the upper stories. Tho principal loss will fall on Ur. Trcr, whom, we nnderatand, hai in Eur&noe in the Merchants and other insuranc 3 com panies, but to what amount, we were unable to learn. Three of the printers at work in the balld isg, at the time, were burnt somewhat by the fire in nuking their escape. Tneir injuries were no considered dangerous. Th? *?w? ftom Kurope-IUvoltitlon la England. I The news from Sebastopol is ? nothing. It would appear, from the evidence of Lord Har din ge belore the Sebastopol Committee, that i he position of the Allies is too stroDg and their artillery too complete to warrant the prospeot of thtir being driven into the seaj or even of a second Inkermann. Of course, no one expects that the siege of the city is to be prosecuted any further for the present. Rumor still assigns to the allied Generals, Raglan and Pelisaier, (Canrobert having received a hint to resiga,) th# intention of advancing inland to try their luck at a battle in the field. But from the Cabinets of the European I Powers the news is suggestive and pregnant with interest. There can be very little doubt now that a secret understanding has long exist j ed between the sovereigns of Russia, Austria and Prussia, and that the diplomatic negotia tions of the past twelve months have been a farce. Alison in the continuation of his his tory, Stiles, and other writers likely to be well informed on such a subject, said so long ago; and the language of the late Czar Nicholas to Sir Hamilton Seymour was strongly corrobora tive of the impression that the price of Rus sia's intervention in Hungary in 1849 was Austria's non- intervention in Turkey whenever the time came lor the fulfilment of Russian destiny. Since then Russia has thrown the Principalities into the bargain, as an additional bait to Austria. She holds them already, and her General declares martial law over the two millions of people they contain. Who shall wrest them from her ? Not Turkey, for it is dead; nor the Western Powers, for they have no bust* ness with them: nor Russia, for she has promis ed to let the Hapsburg have them; nor yet the people of ttie country themselves, for they would rather be the subjects of a powerful em pire than the sovereigns of a weak oac. Paid in advance, in this way, Austria has amused the T\ estern Powers by negotiating: her posi tion in Germany has once or twice tried her faith severely; but at the last, she seems faith ful to her engagement, and the prospect every day grows nearer of France and England find ing themselves thrust headlong into a war with the whole of Russia and the whole of Germany, However momentous such a turn of the war would be, it is really less so, to the human race at large, and to the cause of civilization, than the democratic movement in England which hj>s already grown out of the contest. It is given to very few to see the causes and trace the phi losophy of cotemporary events; mayhap, here after, the historian may allude to the British war with Russia aa an accident arranged by Providence for the purpose of precipitating the fall ?of the hereditary aristocracy in Eog land and the final triumph of popular principles For the one ha3 followed the other with start ling rapidity, and has' already surpassed it in importance; whether there be peace, or whether there ba more war, there must be a revolution I in England. The press is revolutionary, the mar. chants ? who have th-; most to lose by a change talk revolution: members of Parliament fear a revolution; ex-ministers of the crown expect it; even in the towering Houec of Peers, amid the feeble senilities of that pensioner's hospi tal, Lord Ellonborough preaches revolution io almost the toaes of Mirabeau. Does anybody dream that after a peer of England has told his brother peers that, birth is nothing, rank no thing, ancestry nothing, and that merit, head, brains, democratic sense ani honesty are everything? and has been listened to with silence and awe ? that England can returu to the old system, and the army, the navy, the church, and the civil service agaiu become fattening stalls for sprigs of aristocracy ? No. no. The hour has been loug impending, it ib cow at hand: the bell has beei long silent, but a hand is already bidding it strike the tocsiD; the fifiht must come, it must, it must, and neither the haughty defiance of a Derby, nor ?he glib assurance of a Palmerston, nor even the treachery of Iscariot Ellenborough, or the passing follies oi this or that popular leader, can prevent or retard It. War will haiten it, for twenty thousand Englishmen cannot beat fifty thousand Russians, as they will be expect ed to do, and mortification will light the mitsb. Peace will hasten it. for it will bring leisure,' aid a new channel will be needed for the agi tation arouted by the war. A continuance of the French alliance will ins^en it, by keeping constantly before the eyes of the people the superiority of the democratic sysU;m of the I' rench, with their ever-changing rulers and forms of government, to tte old, unchanging, unimproved stolidity of the oligarchical plan ol England. A rupture with France will hasten it, for it would be full of disgrace for England, and though the middle classes were the authors of the mischief, they would infalli bly make a scapegoat of the aristocracy and destroy tLcm in the first fit of self-reproach and peevishness. Come what may, happen what miracle Providence may have in store, nothing can avert revolution from England. And. until that great question is settlei, how futile the operations of the armies ! Do we not all know the whole story? what Raglan wlli do, and what Gortechakoff ? what con^a&ses their Majecties of Vienna, Berlin and St. Pe tersburg will hold, and what further guaran tees, besides the two points, the Czar will give to the German Powers in return for their al liance- what hecatombs of fine fellows will ret m the Crimea or on some other wild place on tte confines of Russia? do we not know all this as well beforehand as when it /shall hap Ptced, and be recorded in formal despatches elaborate correspondents' letters ? Are not ail warg alike and dQ thej not M cQd ^ Tnti , vPamep?int? IIave ?e kings of continental Kurope-the hereditary kings, not Cmpferors~atiy choice in deciding on their course of action?

So of alliances. All these powers have a course forced npon them which they mast take; mtny of ns saw this long ago and scouted the notion of new national leagues. The only chance of anything new growing out of this war hangs upon the prospect of revolution in Ed gland. _ Ocr Relations with Spain. ? It appears at last to have been discovered in the Spanish Cortes that the imbroglio of Mr. Sonll with the Spanish government was caused by his with holding one or more of Marcy's " sober second thought" despatches from the Spanish govern ment. This pgrets with our statements of the case published six months ago, and we presume that there is little doubt now of their correct ness. But we charge the whole of Soull's diffi culties, Ostend convention inclusive, to the double-dealing and treachery of the adminis tration.. It is not likely that he would have persisted in his filibustering experiments at Had rid without encouragement from Washing ton regarded as of higher authority than Marcy's official instructions. We understand, too, that although Mr. Pierce affected to be highly indignant about the Perry letter, he was well advised of that document in advance of its publication. What is to be done with Perry remains to be seen; but as all others concerned in Mr. Pieroe's European Cuban di* plomacy have been sacrificed to the treachery which has ruled this business at Washington, there can be little hope for Mr. Perry. Our new Minister, Mr. Dodge, will most probably refrain from exercising the slightest discretion, however advantageous it may appear, and will stick to the exact letter of Marcy's orders, for' fear of the consequences. In the meantime, as the Perry letter promises to bring out all the suppressed correspondence touching Soute's mission, we may expect in due time, some in teresting developements of the conflicting tac tics of Mr. Pierce, under the alternate counsels of Marcy, Jeff. Davis and the Kitchen Cabinet. Citizen Robespierre McElrath on the Kansas Disturbances. ? The President of fte Nassau Bank, Citizen Robespierre McElrath, like the Jacobins of the first French revolution, is thirsting for blood. Through the columns of his Seward coalition newspaper he is scatter ing his firebrands of agitation and sedition with a most ferocious zeal. For example, he sug gests the getting up "an organized force in the Territory, to repel the invasion of the slave holders, and to repudiate the proceedings of the official scoundre's who will assemble and call themselves the Legislature of Kansas." This sort of coup d'ttat is the very thing for which this Danton McElrath and his revolutionary associate, now in Europe, Atu chareis Cloots, denounced Louis Napoleon as a perjured cut-throat aud murderer. But cir-. cumstances alter cases, and where niggers are concerned, the cutting of throats is suggested as a positive virtue. Our amiable conspirator, Master McElrath, seems to have an echo in Kansas equally amiable. In a lett-.r of his published yesterday, this law-abiding Kansas tree soil emigrant says that the people of the North "know very little of the proper mode for tecuring the freedom of Kausas, which is to light," that "a battle or two must be fought? a fegular pitched battle;" and he accordingly ' calls lor a shipment of "revolvers and other weapons" of moral suasion of the same deadly character. Das it come to this ? Is this the way that the blood-iuirsty Citizen M'Elrath dtals with the customers of the Nassau Bank when they call lor a discount, especially if they be liquor dealers? When it comes to " revol vers atd other weapons," and a call for "a pitched battle," the abolitionists, like quiet people, keep within doors. Liquor Dealers in Trouble.? We perceive that Messrs. Coleman & Stetson, of the A?tor House, under the auspices of the Carson League, lave been brought under a proscution as viola tors of the liquor law. For many years these gentlemen of the Astor Ilouse have been the ftiends and purveyors, politically and socially, of this very Seward coalition wliijh is thus un gratefully rendering them evil for good. The agents of the very parties who have time and again enjoyed the champagne and other choice l:quors of tbe bountiful Astor House, on the most liberal and easy terms, are now as re morselessly pursuing this firm of the Astor as if they were escaped convicts from B'ack well's Island.

PROBABLY (26,000 or nonin destroyed ? t hue men in* JVHKD IT BUBKIKO. At about nine o':lock last evening, a fire broke opt is the four story buiUing No. 49 Ana (treat, principally occupied by John F. Trow, priater and publisher of Tree's New York City Directory. The Are, wi under stand, was first discovered by James Fox, eng ineer of a ?team engine, situated in a email building directly in the iear cf Mr.Trow's premise*. Mr. Fox says be stepped out frem the engine room and saw the fire buratlog out of the third story rear window of the building No. 49 Aon street. He forthwith i an to the engine house of No. 5, located almost opposite ta the bulking, in Ann street, and gave them tee alarm. At that time no fire could be seen from the front of the building. llr. Louis Durr is insured for $2,000; and his damage, which is by water, will be but trifling. Morrell, Donald & Co. were just amoving ia, and bad but little stock on the presumes. Their lo?s will ba but trifling. One half of tbe cellar under No. 49 was occupied for the manufacture of printers' rollers. The name of the person we eould not lesrn, but understand he was not nsured. The Ball bell racg off the alarm for the Seventh dis trict, and soon after the flames burst forth from the windows. The firemen rushed to the scene of conflagra tion in great numbers, and the streets were thronged with people, who could be seen running from all direo tions o wards the burning. It teems, at the time tbe fire was discovered, some twenty printers were at work in the adjoining building, No. 51 Ann street, which communicates oo the third and fourth floors. At first they thought it could be extin guished with a few pails of water, and some of them ap proached the fire for that* purpose, but they very soon found out their mistake; and so rapidly did the fire ex tend, tbat several of the printers were compelled to efceape through t be scuttle to the adjoining building, the smoke belnp too deaie for them to pais down stairs. Great cenfv sion became manifest among the printers, as the step ladder leading to the scuttle had beea die placed, and could not bo found, and they were com pelled to erect a kind of scaffold, In order to reach the ?cuttle for escape. At times, Ana street, towards Nassau, was complete ly smothered in smoke, and many were compelled to leave in a half suffocated con<?iti)n. Considerable f?ar was entertained by the Bremen in ref?rpno#|to the condi tion of the building, as it was rumored that a large num ber of printing presses were in the upper floors, together with some heavy iron safes. It was subsequently ascer tained, however, thata few weeks ago several of the larg est presses ha1 Deen removed, also the iron safes. The firemen worked desperately to conquer tbe destructive element, and in tbe space of about two hours the flames were sufficiently subdued to prevent its extending be yond tbe above named premises. The whole of the building. No. 49, has been completely gutted, and a por tion of No. 51. Trow's Directory, it is said, was very near completion, and was nearly, if not all, destroyed by the Are. The first floor of I*o. 49 appears to have been ociupied by Leavitt, Trow & Co , stereotype printers. The first floor of No. 51, was occupied by I# wis Durr. gold an1 silver refiners. No. 53 Is occupied by Morrell, Donald Ac Co., printing ink makers. The tire bad betn burning about half ?n hoir when an explosion took place, supposed to be caused by the gas meter. FIRE IN GREENWICH STREET. About 10 o'clock last night a fire was discovered in the attio of the frame buildieg No. 211 Sreenwich street, occup'ed by Jobn F. White, brush manufacture. His loss by fire and water will be abont $200? fully issared. The camphene, oil and lamp store, in the same building, occupied by M. Smith, wss somewhat damaged by water; he is insured in the Lorillard Insurance Company for $1,600. Tbe breaking out of this fire caused considera ble excitement, and the Chief Engineer ordered tbe fire bell to be rang for the Third district, in order to bring the np town engines down to attend to this fire in Greenvrlch street. FIRE IN WEST EIGHTEENTH STREET Soon after the breaking out of the fire in Apn street a fire took place ia a dwelling home in West Eighteenth street, near Ninth avenue. It occurred in one of the npper rooms, said to be caused by the carelessness of one of tbe servants. It was soon extinguished with but little damage. The Kinney Expedition Besieged, VISIT TO THE ltK IEQIfSG FOKCI ? L ATBBT INTELLI GENCE FROM THE BEAT OF WAfc, The announcement that (the clipper steamship United States, haying on board the participant! in the Kinney expedition, was about to sail on Monday afternoon trom her dock foot of Eighth street, caused no little exclte i ment among the government officials at this part, and on the news being transmitted to Washington, word was mmediatel^sent hack to stop it by all means. Accordi ngly orders were forwarded to Commodort Boor m in at ? the Navy Yard, to bold all his available force in readi ness to intercept the fleet little eraft, with her gang of presumed filibusters, and on no account to permit her even to leave the dock. On the receipt of these orders, (th's was last Saturday,) the greatest commotion pre vailed among the officials at the Navy Fard, and foor vessele? three steamers and a revenue cutter? were immeditely got ready for active service. Victuals, powder, ball, and all the appurtenances of war, were put aboard, and every available man and cfficer in the Navy Yard pressed into the serrioe. So difficult was it to find officers that the Commodire was compelled to impress several who had but just left the flag ship Columbia, just returned from a cruise, and were anticipating a good time on shore. All being in readiness, the war fleet sailed and was stationed in the river to prevent the United States leaving the dock, as described in yesterday's Hkrai.d. Yesterday one of our reporters visited the dosk foot of Eighth street, to give an account of the affair, and see when the expedition would sail. He found, on ar riving, tfce United States lying at the dock quietly, and the government vessels out in the stream, ready to pounce on her should sbe quit her berth. Abrea?t of the dock lay a fong, low, black topsail schooner, elipper built? one of those pert little crafts that woull delight a e?ilor to look upon, and, to use a nautical expression, capable of ''sailing in the wind'a eye." Above, in the river, at tbe foot of Twelfth street, wis a larger vessel, ?a propeller ? so placed as to cut rlf escape in that quarter; while below, at tbe foot of Houston street, was a smart looking, saucy little steamer, evidently reidy for any emergency. After survey ing this formidable fleet, our reporter stepped on the deck of the United States, prepared to find the vessel filled to overflowing with terrible fellows, " bearded like pards." and armed to the ftrj eyes, with revolvers, muskets, bowis knives, cutlasses, tomahawks, and all mtnnero' death dealing weapons. But what was his surprise to find every thiag on the deck etill as dentil, nor wa# there apparently n human telrg on board. Alter stumbling about tlie ship, up stairs, doirn stairs, through the cabins and corri dors, for seme time to find a stray filibuster, hs at length discovered a y< ung man, whom he afterward.-* 1' arced wss the Purser, W. V. l'erkirs, in one of the cables, whh whom he had the following conversation Pu' This Is the United 8tates I brieve, that had teen chartered to take out the famous Kinney ex pedition last Monday? Pu:sek ? All 1 know about the sailing on Mjndiy was what 1 saw in tbe HkiuLD ih a morniog. Indeed, I don't know when we will sail, or anyth'n? about it. We have plenty of ialt provisions aboard, bat no fre?h food. R ? How many personi have you aboard now ? P.? l our, two stewardesses, a storekeeper, and my eelf. Captain Graham if bow' on shore I see by the papers that these government vessels outside are placed there to stop us geing out; I don't think they'll have much trouble. They seem quite nervous about our rnovnuents. Yesterday afternoon we hsd occasion to build a fire iu the furnace, and when the srroke made Its sppeiracrte from tbe pipe it caused great commotion on the vessel* in tbe stream. The offi cers were running about, fits* in hand, taking observa tions, while the men ^ ere stationed at their posts on deck. To give them an excuse for tbelr exoetslve vigi lance we threw some pine knots in the fire, and emsed quite a smoke. In less than two hours sevirtl Unitel States Marshals came on board to see what was goln; oo, but foun(* tothirg to justify their suspicions. Mr. Perkins had little els* to say, further than that the vessel wa< undoubtedly hired by Colonel Ktoney, ai>d was provisioned colely for passengers A email boat was then procured and the little revsuue cxi tier next visited. Kverytliing nu board showed th?t every preparation bad been mads for a pitched battle should an opportunity offer. The decks were cisarei, and tte guns shotted to the very muzi'e, while the msa ay sround ready for Immediate action. Tbe prop tiler, afterwards visited, gave eTl'ence of the same readiness for i>n emergency. On both lies* vessels our reporter was rec?lvel by tbe officers with pallor like frankneei and cordiality, and was furnished with all tbe information be required. On board the steamer Vixen, he was not so lucky. On mtk ing known his errand to a tall gentleman on deck, wh? evidently took him for the redoubtable Kinney him mlf, he waa told, that was his (the tall gentleman's) busi ness, and be didn't feel disposed to commnnieate any < bicg, all of whlsh was said in a very valiant tone of voice.

The New Liquor Law. TO THS FPBI.IC. Ai nomtroui inquiries kave been addressed to me, verbal ly and by letter, by druggUts throughout this State, respect ing the operation of the new Prohibitory law after the 4th of July upon the tale of my Sehiedam Aromatic Schnapps, I will here state, for the information of whom it may oonoern, what I cenceive to be my rights under the statute. In the fir?t place. 1 claim under the first section, whioh says this section ihall not apply to liquor, the right to sell which in this Stat* la given by any law or treaty of th* United Btates; and in this assertion I am austaintd by th* opinion of Mr. Oakey Ball, District Attorney; ilr. ifllon, Couniel to the Corporation; Mr. Gerard, and Judge Beards ley, and several more of the lepal profession. My Sohnappi is an imported article, for whioh 1 pay the government a doty or one hundrtd percent. I also claim under the 22d section of the aot, whioh says '? Nor oball any provisions of thi? act be construed to pro hibit tbo manufacture or keeping for sale, nor from selling burning fluids oi any kind, perfumery, e senoe.i, drnga. Tar nishes, nor any other article which may be eomposed in part of alcohol or other spirituous liquors, if not adapted to use aa a beverage, nor intended to bo used aa a beverago, or ia evasion ot this act." Now I oin show, by incontrovertible teatimony, that my article is a medicine or drug, and comes within the meaning and intent of the above passage. In April, 1861, I obtained a patent tor it in dua form, as a medicine; and aa the pro hibitory policy had not then l>een adopted, even in Maine, it cannot te said of that patent, as it might be of a similar in strument if obtained now, that it w?? intended as nn evailoa oi the letter or the principle of prohibition My p eparation is also classed among " drugs, in the pharm^oopocia and in druggists' lists, and is kept and told by druggist* for medi cinal purposes. It ia a tiaoture?juat as much so as tiuctura of hops ?r tincture of ginger- and I suppose ttat no one will deny that these nre drnps, within the meaning of the law. In order tomate this evident, I will five Webster's defini tion of the word tincture, in its medical tense. It reads thus " A ipiiituons solution of such proximate principles of vegetables and animals as are soluble iu pure alcohol or proof spirit; spirit containing mrdicUal substances la solu tion." 1 su| pose that no person will deny that the tohiedim Aro matio bchnai ps, whioh consists of the finest oil of juniper suspended in the purest aloohol, is amedioinal tinotura, ac cording to the great American lexicographer. It ba* been sold in all the Maine law States since the first law was pasted in Maine, 1861, without any difficulty; tad I do tot believe we have a population in this State so fanati oal as to attempt to deprive the afflloted of on* of the great essettlals ot the materia medtoa.
