Barbour Wth century. Letter from seal Dow. Gbosvenor Hotel, '/ London, alay, 1873. ) To the Editor of the Portland Press: There has not been a time in this country for many years, when there has been so great activity and so much prosperity in every branch of trade, as there is now. The profits of the general business of the couutry arc very satisfactory, and the wages of labor are fully twice as large as they ever were before: and in some branches ol trade, the wages are three times and in some instances even foul times larger than ever they were. And no branch of trade has been more stimulated than that of the Brewers, Licensed Victual lers and Publicans, upon whom fifty-five millions of dollars more were spent by the people, during the last year than any former year. The result of this has been a Urge increase in tLe poveity, pauperism and suffering ol the lower classes of the people, upon whom the liquor trade exerts the largest influence. The press of the country exposes the fact, that there never was a time, when the work ing classes were in a more unsatisfactory con dition. As a class they do not save; they lay up nothing in a prosperous time, that may be a resource to them in times of dull trade; and I am assured by many large employers ol la bor iu different parts of the country, that if there should be a reaction in trade, great numbers of workmen now receiving the larg est wages, would be compelled in a week, to go upon the parish, as the phrase is here. These men spend their money recklessly, and waste their time and health at the grog shops. A great many of them will not work mote than three or four days in the week; very few of them working the six days. In this short time, they earn far more wages than they ever did before, but their families arc not better cared for, because they spend their money foolishly at the beer houses and gin shops. i uis condition ot toe country gives a iresti impulse to the agitation that is going on here, for the legal suppression of the liquor traffic. In every part of the country great meetings arc held in the largest halls, that are crowd ed and most enthusiastic, where the mischiefs resulting trom the grog shops are discussed, and the most pungent denunciations of that dreadful trade are most warreiv applauded. There is no subject which excites so much attention here now. as that of the poverty, pauperism and crime of the country.resuliing from the liquor trade, and none, the discuss ion ot which, calls together such great audi ences. Everywhere, the experience of America is appealed to, as the results of prohibition. The trieudsof the grogshops affirm that the Maine Law has bei n a failure: not lessening the liquor traffic to any appreciable extent. And the friends of temperance as warmly de clare the contrary to be true and brine for ward their proofs. Everywhere, Maine is cited on the one part as an instance of the fail ure of prohibition, and on the otner part as a demonstration of its success. In many places in Maine, liquor is sold more or less secretly in violation of the law: and the English peo ple of the belter classes cannot understand why t.iis should be so,because in tiii country generally, ttiere is a high sense of official lionor and responsibility, which impels all officers of the law to discharge their duty faithfully and conscientiousl , without being influenced in any way, by their personal views or preferences. They cannot under stand how honorable men caD ignore their official oath and their official duty, as a great many men in America do. 'i hey think the moral sense of our people must be dull, which could tolerate an official in the open and fla grant neglect of his duty. In this country, law is administered with fa- more impartiali ty and steadfastness than it is among us; be cause here, an official would be disgraced, if he should permit himself for any cause what ever, to neglect the faithful discharge ot his duty. Neal Dow. A Portrait of Yanderbilt. By the author or "Guy Livingstone." One day, driving bact through Central park-we were trying a Iambus team, and had gone out early, so as to “spead ’ ,hem when the I; n: was compai t vtly e'ear-we m< t a wagon, drawn by a pair of raking browns, go gait noticeable Sm g ceJebritiM when not extended, lu the shadow of the hood sat a tall, spare, erect old man, severe and somewhat stately in aspect, with a touch of the decision in aim ofh's beard the fashion of bb somber ipparel, and the turn of his bioad brimmed leaver. Neither in figure nor feature was here the faintest resemblance, yet some thing in his pose and method of handling the reins reminded at once ofa deceased dignitaiy uu.ier known in the Kow then in convoca t*on; though austere dignity was assuredly not a leading character! t c of the dean of St. unjan s. In acknowledgement of my com piniun « cheery hail.this solemn elder voueh saled a short, surly but scarcely a side glance out ot his hard steady eye; and vet the two had been intimate for years, and not !c| Tei'iint*** venture in the same argosy. Temperate and frugal, lor tobacco is bis sole excess, and a trotting steed his sole extrava gance; not a fond husband end father but ju t in his hard way toward the child en scarcely a professing Christian, yet rendering to the church her dues, aud not slow to con tribute to public chaiitics; both physically and morally absolutely fe_rless; prudent per severing a (1 sagacious; scenting either dan ger or profit trom afar with a keenness allied to instinct—such civic crowns Vanderbilt may assuredly claim. Now, turn pave. A despot in council; a bully on a tavern stoop everywhere, whether in jest or earnest, a foul-mouthed, blasphemous railtr; grossly il literate and booiish. and boastful of both de fects; even morose aud saturnine, save when moved to surly laughter by some brutal jest; 1 lUt rill III Ul IUC3 ami oouiomui-o WOICUUUIVU3 iu benevolence, but tbe veriest miser of pri vate alms:a man who would liever, auy day, hire a sycophant than secure a friend. always utterly remorseless, pitiless and unrelenting; and, in his arrogant intolerance of rivalry, of ten wantonly perfidious and cruel. In the early part ot this century flourished, like a mighty bay tree, a certain marquis, one of tlie tegent’s chief worthies. He had practiced the seven situ so seduously and extensively that small vices began to pall on tis taste; a"d even in gambling, he craved for some ad ventitious excitement. “It is poor sport play ing with rich folks,” he was wont to aver; “but I like winuingof poor men—they feel it so.” Truly, it would seem as if some of the peculiarities of this amiable noble had been reproduced in the commodore. That a man of bis reticence and reserve should aecp his secrets safe locked up is natural euougb. but that he should not seldom mislead his lellows to their hurt, is si mcwDat unaccountable. He has, ere this, given a valuable clue to a bar-keeper, prize-fighter, or trotting-jockey, when his own kin and families, were grop ins. helplessly in the dark. Indeed, it is cred* iblv affirmed that bis son-in-law, after being trapped in divers commercial pitfalls, on.v es eaped ruin by at last going exactly counter to tbe commodore’s suggestions; and evtr since be lias stood much higher in the old man’s favor, as one who. having paid his 'prentice fees, is entitled to the honor of an an inde pendent trader. Assuredly there are verv many mansions in New York that would still remain closed this Hoi Carotte, were his vealth and power trebled. Nevertheless, he is, beyond question, rather a popular fa vorite. When awbflt ago not a mouth after the death of his first wife, the mother of all his children, and his faithful helpmeet for foil y years, lie sold her favorite horse to the highest bidder people only laughed, saying, “It was the commodore all over;” and otne s of his social offenses have In like manner been glossed over and condoned. Well, it little be comes us, who have gathered up reverently the scattered aspirates of railway mooarchs, and been enified by fraudulent Gamaliels, to sit in judgment on our neighbors; but I think we have lievei yet bowed down before quite such an idol as this. A Lost Patient. A foreign scientific periodical relates this suggestive story: » Some time since a lady called upon a cele brated oculist in order to consult him on ac count of her eye3, complaining that their power ol vision had of late considerably di minished. At a glance the doctor saw that she wa3 a lady of rank and wealth. He looked at her eyes, shook his head, and th iught the treatment wotild require much time, as there was reason to fear amaurosis in her case. He must advise her, titsf of all. that as she had informed him she was re siding a considerable in the country, she must move into the city at once, and thus enable him to see her frequently, if pos sible daily. ine uay iuen rentea an elegant mansion, moved into the city, and the physician was punctual in his atten lance. He prescribed this anu that, and thus days run into weeks and weeks into mouths. The cure, however, was still coming. The physician tried to console her. One day 'he patient hit upon a curious scheme, and she waited not long to carry it into effect. She procured for herself a very old and poor attire, put a hood of tremendous size upon her head, took an < id umbrella and a market basket in her hand, and iu these habiliments she visited her physician, select ing for the purpt se a veiy rainy day. She had so well succeeded iu distorting and dis guising herself that the eye even of a lover could scarcely have recognized her. She was obliged to wait a long time iu the ante-room of her physician, with many others who, like her, were seeking relief. At last her turn came. ‘‘Well, my good woman, what have you to complain of?’’ ‘•Very bad eyes, doctor,” she answered. He took her to the light, looked info her eyes, but failed to recognize his patient. Shrugging his shoulders, he said: “Yo jr eyes are well enough.” “Well?” she said. “Yes; I know what I am saying.” “Bu. I have been told that I was getting the a—a—forgot how it is called.” ‘‘Amaurosis?’' “Yes, that is it, doctor.” “Don’t you let them make you believe any such nonsense. Your.eyes are a little weak, but that is all. Your physician is an ass!” “An-? ’ “Ye3, an ass! Tell him boldly that I say so.” The lady now arose, and iu her customary voice said: “Sir, you are my physician; don’t you kn >w me?” The face the sage counsellor made is easii r to imagine than to describe. “Gracious, madame!” he commenced to stammer an apology, but the lady would cot listen to him, and left him indignantly. She never saw the gentleman any more. Beaten at Hep own Game.—' So yon have finished your studies at the sera’nary ? I was much pleased with the closing exer cises. The author of that poem—Miss White, I think you called her—bids fair to become a poet.” “We think the authoress will become celebrated as a poetess,” re marked the young lady pertly, with a marked emphasis on two wolds of the sentence. “Oh! ah,” replied the old gentler>an, looking thoughtfully over his gold spectacles at tho young lady. “I hear her sister was ouite an actress, and under Mr. Hosmer's instructions will undoubtedly become quite a sculptoress.” The young lady appeared irritated. ‘ The sem nary. ’ continued the ol gentleman, with imperturbable gravity, “is fortunate in having an efficient board of manageresses. From the presidentess down to the humblest teacheress, unusual talent is shown. Tnete is Miss Harper, who, as a chemistress, is un equaled, and Miss Kuowles has already a reputation as an astronomeress.
