Bror.non on the Prohibi tory Liquor Law. So much has already been said upon our lately enact ed liquor law, that I shall only notice a f*w point*, and as to tboae shall da little mere than atat* my conolu aioas without much diacussicn. At another time I may wxamin* the subject more at large. L lhe legislature has, in my opinion, taken an un warrantable liberty with existing rights of property. The owner of liquor*, who hm acquired them under the aaactlon of the law*, ia wholly prohibited fr?m selling for um aa a- beverage, which deprives th? property or :uuofc the greater part of its market value; and ha can not sell for any purpose without finding two sufficient auretiea in five hundred dollars each, aatiafylng a Judge that he is a man of gooa moral character, and making oath ttat he ia an elector of the toirn or ward where he 'intend* to sell, that he does not use intoxicating liquor as a beverage, and doe* not, and daring the time he shall aell will not, follow any one o( somt fifteen or twenty lawful pursuit* specified in the aet. These are great impediment* in the way of the owner, and in many case* ?must operate a* a total prohibition against selling for any pnrpete The right to sell ia cne of the incidents of property, and that which constitutes it* whole mar ket value; and except where the merchandise ha* been acquired lot consumption, there is nodiiTerence in prin ciple between detyinr the right to *?U aod depriving th* -owner of hi* beneficial inteiest in any otter way. Our constitution provide* that no person shall b* deprived of life, liberty or property without du* process or law. Here (hers )s no pro**** at all. The legislator* ha* usurped judicial powers which beloag to th* court* alone, and paueil a sentence of condemnation againat the property. liquors kept for sal*, or with intent to sell, in riola tion of the act. are d*c-ar?d to be a public nuisance. I am *f opinion that th* legtlature cannot make a thi <14 a nuisance by merely declaring it to be auch. It mn*t . be noxious either in tt* own netnre, or from th* pits* or macnar of keeping or uaing It: anl whether a nui aance or not i* a queation fcr th* judiciary, aad net for the Legislature. A public nuisance may be abated by ?ny ooe: but be will act at the peril of being able to ?rove that the thing was In fact a nuisance. The Legia iture cannot make the evidence fot him nor give judg ment in his favor. The constitution atfords the like protection to life, liberty and property; and if the Le gislature can authorize the destruction or the latter by ?merely branding it with an olioua nam*, I **?- no reaaon why R may not, by the like m*an*, deprive the owner of liberty, or even lite itself. He may be denounced as ? heretic aad burned at the stake. Kxceaaive Jt inking is a great evil. It is an offence which ahooM be punished. Mat it does not folio w that the moderate use of liquor is a sin against either God or man, nor that th* imocent sbonld be punished as well as tii* guilt/. The gift* of God may ail oe abated, bat that furaiihies only a slender reason for denouncing the ftft* tbem?*ives as a nuisance, the abuse < f iutoxlcat eg drinks began aa leng ago a* the tim* of Noah, and yet when th* Uraeilte* were afterwards under a theo cracy, and thair law* were either written or c totaled by the Almighty, tke temperate tie* of in toxic.* ting liquor ?we* sot prohibited, nor waa it forbidden by th* Saviour nor by I'auL nor by any one else, until we get dewn to 1fce facalicL.'m of our own t<me*. Th* law is open to many other objections. It inflict* . grievous penalties, arms inferior and irresponsib e otfi oera with unusual and arbitrary povers, pacas juries, acspects aa t threaten* magistrut'S anil other public officer*, reverie* th* ru'es of evidence by presuming guilt instead of Innocence, Invite* aggressions upon pro Srty, and in other ways evince* a oonsnuuaneas in os* who fran..?.l it that the measure oouU not be car Tied into < x ecu tion by the ordinary means for enforcing penal statutes. I will only refer to ooe or two of these objectionable provisions. I'nder the law, the man who breaks into a dwelling and takes and came* away liquor as a thief or a robber, has got a better t'tle than the owner ef the house, for the latter cannot maintain an action to recover the value or porseuion of the property without proving that it waa "lawfully kept and owned hy him. Again, on th* trial of anyone charged with a criminal oOence created by the act, the delivery of liquor ia msde jtrima farie evidence of sale, and proof of aele la made sufficient evidence of unlawful sale. And thus a man who delivers a Lottie of wine to be iii?d by th* aick, or at the communion table may be convicted of a criminal oflence and shut up in prison, unless he in ao fortunate aa to be able to pr jv* bis innocence Hucb laws reflect no credit upoo the age or eoantry in w'uich we live; and, ia my opinion, the Legislature has gone beyond its legitimate powers If the law bad been wholly proapective in ita optta tlon, and had only forbidden the sale of such liquors as might afterwards be acquired, tt would have been free from some of the objection* which have been mentioned. But such U not the character of tbe anac tm-nt. the clauses which inflict penalties, anl authorise th* tteirare and forf*itar* of liquor*, are subject to several very grave objections; but these, with none other ira -potlaat question*, have been so fully considered in opi nion* already before tbe public, that I shail not disiuss them at present. A plauiible pretext 1| wanting for violent men pure* of this kind. The prevention of Intemperance i* only one among the number. Tne public good is always put forward a* th* end to be attained, aad that ia so im portant that no on* i* allowed to gn**t on the rnsan-t of xeaehing it. But thia is a dtugercua principle. Coder auch wttMCM the greatest enormities have beea com mitted. lb* right* of all have been invaded because aome men abuse their privileges. The llbertiee of the people have been overthrown iu many countries under color of promoting the public welfare, and under some aneh pretext men have evn beea denied the use of the Able, aad the right to think tot themselves upon th* most important of all subject*. The law in que* two i* none th* lesa dangerous because It J* aa*ri?!.? ^{issUj again, t a cias* ef m?n, inst?*d of efct whole community. That la to* usual mars* in th* ^ d^ajt^tnts of power. The attack omit-ecrs on the -weak pointo, and proc^' by d*rre.s it la* rareljr happened that th* privileges of ft ft"*;1 troyed in one day, or bi a tingle blow it hniiJjne* . *to watch th* first step. If other merchants a > well as ttioi? who deal in liquor* had b*ea included in tbe prohibition against felling their goo^s, ar. tbe farmer und the me chanic had, under come plaint bl? pretext b< *a >leni"<I the right to vend the fruits of thitr indu?t-y- *11 would have exclaimed *?ainst the rank ioinK'.lce of the meaaure Aad yet th* title to in'oxicat ng driok? is a* perfect as is the title to anv otder special of property If we allow the right* of a tingle cl >? s to be -ntsdel, no one can be tesure that hie riguta will not fait n?t t II. If we aasume thai the Uw 1* val> i, I th at It not aapiy to imported liquors Th* first anl general prohibitory section concludes by ttejUriag^lh^i i section ?hall not spplv to liquor the r ght to sell wLn It ti tbm '.^tate is given oy any law or tre?ty of the Unite i -tats*." aad It I* settled by tbe highest court iu the Ian !

The undersigned Wl?? the liquor trains ti be wrong, loiiBuet es it Aflect* our dearest family Ints lestc, demoralites the community, sacrifices life and pro perty, and burdens ua with taxes to a mom (earfui ex tent. We hold it not only to be the right but the duty of (he State to protect the pen pie from the vant evils produced by paid truffle We know that eminent oounsel hare declared the Pro bibitoryiaw unconstitutional, and therefore null and void. We know, too, that the chief magistrate of thU city, who voluntarily declared a determination to exereiee even ''doubtful powers'' where the public (food required it. has, by placing himself behind theee " opinions," de prived the law of the servloes of the poll re, oa which its execution mainly depend*, opened wtrto the fountains of intemperance, and in effect detlarel "free trade" in liquor. Hut these difficulties hare failed to discourage us. or change our convictions. we believe the Inhibitory law to be wine, just and constitutional, and demanded by the alarnrng spread of "intemperance, pauperism ami crime" In our midst. We believe the law will be sustained by the courts and by the people, and it is not from any doubt r.n ttiese points that its friend* in this city have abstained from vigorous prosecutions. They desire to sbosr a spirit of liberality and forbearance We would subject no citizen to the entanglement* of law, or place bis " liberty" or "pro(.erty" In jeopirfv, unless it appears to Ik> clearly right, ami demanded !or the n ulntenano* oT order, and the pro tlon of the community. We nhiink, however, fiom no rraponslbiltty imposed upon u i as advocates of prohibition. We ar* prepared to meet the issue ai men. Vou clffer fri>m us widely in opinion. You malnta'n that the Prohibitory law is unconstitutional and op pressive. We are no friends of strife. We would aroid need less irritation, annoyance or litUatiou. We contend for a great principle. We are as jealous or the individual right* 01 the humblest citizen as you are. If the law in any of ita provisions is unconstitutional. we want t> know it. If It is not, we shall labor diligently to en force It. Vndsr these circumstances and In consideration of the difficulties thrown in otir way by the ? onstxuctiou put upon the law by the llayor, we respectfully preeeot the following propoil ion for your consideration and ac ceptance. ? We pre pose that jou cr tome one or more of the memters of the I.iju'or Dft.leit' Society, ihali place us in possession of testimony of a charjeter whlcn nh--? II be at unobjectionable as the nature of the cast- will admit, but which shall be sufficient to euab'e us jointly to carry the following p^int. rn tfc? ir merits and 10 sepii rate suits. through the various :ormh to toe court of lait reiori, with the least possible delay ? 1 The r'ght of the 8 ate to prohibit tho liquor trndic. 2.

We want to be fat right In that, for It haa been ? a d that there waa an Intentional omlasioa of some conimir sioners. It.

At tbe meeting wai there a majority of the t omtniaaiout *a present? Wiy.nmw? There wure four present; there was the Mayor, mjsel', Dr. Ml.lerand l)r. Downing. Aldeiman Ki.r- At this moet'ug there was a resolution paoeeo? wan it passed unanimously f It waa so state! by tbe Mayor. W mmt-l believe that It was, it might be pyeper for me to state thst tbe Mayor aald in ollaausg Una resolu tion, that th? vesivl had been up to the surface of tbe water and thst it was very offensive, be said that it was very desirable to *et it p<*a*d at once, tbe preamble spent not its beta# removed before tne hot weather; hence it was no denlritble to get it up at once.
