f . For the Argue. 1 Us l.t.ttr I.Ute l num 1 Ono of tbo iaker at lAto temperance meeting in Oregon City, presented a view of tho licenso yaloni which must comincnu iUc-lf lo every candid mind. It was tliii : First If tho twflio ia iutoxiuitinj; si.ir iU u bovcrago, U u tbo rumitc mnintuiu, riglit, thco it ought to bo left frco'nnd tin tramelod liko tlio trnflic in dry good, pro duce, or any oilier necowary article of trodo. And thoso wbo cngiigo in tlio trufllo are just men, andoufe'lit to enjoy all tho im munities of citiznlii). In this case tho li cense eyntoni makes, invidious distinctions between freemen and equals, and is therefore wholly wrong, unjust and unequal. SoconJIy. If however tho traffic, U as the Temperance party contend, and at the licence system ema to imply, wholly wrong, then to throw around it tho protec tion of law, is to plight tho faith of the country to wrongdoing. Hunco in this view the license system is wholly and rad really wrong. So that take it which way we will the license system is wrong and ought to be repudiated from our legislation. This representation of tho subject is worthy of sober reflection. If tho license system is anti-republican and morally wrong is it not high time that wo should adopt a mora consistent mode of legislation on this subject. Total prohibition is just tho thing, KIRKMAN. feolvemcy af Wells, Yars C. Wo have received a circular frdm Wells, Fargo Se Co. calling our attention to the "se curities and facilities" of their firm, as Ex press forwarders, Commission agents and Bankers. Tho circular sets forth that they have a joint stock cimh capital of $300,000, and that the whole "joint capital and property of thecompany," together with the "whole ag gregate personal property and reaponsibili ty of the share-holders, stand pledged for its engagements." . : t ! The circular goes on to mention various other matters connected with the constitu tion of the firm, which operate as strong guarantees for tho security of thoso who transact business with thcin. A circular of this sort seems very well timid in theso days, when tho bones of bodies corpornto in every direction, are yielding to the dreadful pressure in the money market, and being crushed in like the ribs of a spidor under the foot of a giant. Wo hope tho iron skeleton of Wells, p'nrgo & Co., will, liko that of the ancient Mastodon, yield to nothing short of light ning. STWa are authorize.! lo announce WM. W.
