SBEE -WHISKY, OH THE MAINE LAW. The weekly Variety discourses as follows in relation to our. present License law. They may answer the logic who can t In the first place, it is our firm conviction that any attempt to regulate the liquor traffic is. not only a fruitless attempt to build upon a quicksand, but it is, as an effort to prevent the free use of ardent spirits, an absurdity. The question, ae presented by the two great parties in the contest; is literally —Total prohibition or indiscriminate sale & consumption. As much, as persons may wish to occupy "middle, ground," there is really iio^uch tangible position. We must be either for or against liquor. .If the sale of intoxicating dt inks can be legally assigned'to one man—if it is right for one man:to deal in .whisky-—, why shouldany one. man whose inclinations point in that direction, be prohibited from reaping a profit in the same traffic. If the sale of ardent spirits a* a beverage is an intrinsic right, the t...

DEATH OF JOHN KEATING It becomes our painful duty to announce the death of this eailiest fiend of our county. He departed this life at his residence in Philadelphia, on Monday, the 19lh instant, in his ninetysixth year. He will be remembered by all the old settlers as a kind-hearted and liberal landholder. He had a great attachment lor Potter and M'Kean counties, which he manifested in liberal donations to their Academies and other public institutions. Always gentlemanly and courteous in his relations with .others, his life Was an example which might be safely followed by all. During his pilgrimage of nearly one hundred years, he passed through many strange vicissitudes; was connected more or less intimately with many of the great political events, and the peo--pie who wrought them ; and the reminiscences of his life would possess au unusual degree of interest for persons wholly unacquainted with hirn. He wiu Irish by birth, but from his infancy resided in Frai-ce, and his f...

Let ths Govarnw Slow his Hand. we cup tne loiiowiug trom tho Welhboro Agitator, and we regret that Governor Pollock, who pioruised so much while a candidate, should have done so little since his election, that it becomes necessary to inquire where he stands: An Error.—-One of our exchanges speaks ofGovernor Pollock's ••organs." We are coiifi-lent that Gov. Pollock has no " organs," public or secret. His policy has been from the first, to meddle with no department of Government but his owii; and while he allows uo dictation to the Governor, •he- does not dictate to the printer.— Jjtwisburg Chronicle. Very good. But every public man has an accredited organ, sometimes more than one.

KANSAS C03UESPONDI3NCE.- Lawrence, May 15, ltioG. • Editor of the Journal • I stated in my letter of the day before yesterday that Governor Robinson started for the East a few days ago on private business. I write lo infoim you that ou Saturday last he ivas taken by a mob at Lexington.Missouri, and is there held aprisonei. He was taken on board the steamboat upon which ho was going to St. Louis. The mob wanted to hang him instantly, but the leaders knew better than to do that. They charge him with Treason, and swear that he shall-be given up to Shannon, and if he don't hang him, they will come up from Missouri and do so. Considerable excitement prevails here at this moment, and it is quite a hard task for the Committee of Safety who are_ now in session, tokeep company "A" —made up mostly of young men—of the Lawrence Militia from marching to Lexington and taking tho Governor from the hand" of that viilauous mob; and also tho rifles which the pirates there did not know how to ...
