No one hears in this country oí an ale-house, a porter-house, a gin-shop, a dram-shop, but only of restaurants, offices, saloons, sample-rooms, &o. It would be half the battle if we could compel the liquor-sellers to put up truthful signs ; if where there are license laws a man was required by law to have in large letters on the front of his house " Licensed Liquor Store," or the words " Licensed to Sell Intoxicating Liquors !" Why not ? It would be simply the statement of the truth ; as when in some States we see signs " Licensed to Sell Gunpowder." And it were no more than tho truth could the liquor dealer be made to see whenever he looked up to his sign eome such announcement as " Tippling Hall," " Drunkard's Resort," or " Gateway to Heil." - Religious Exchanqe. We learn from a gentleman dowu from " 16," yesterday, that the recent " fresh " had allowed the starting out of a solid jam of 16 miles of log in the Tittabawassee on yesterday noon. This jam contained some 30,000,000 feet, and en, tirely cleans that stream, with the exception of a diminutivo rear. A gentleman well versed in such matters, down from the Rifle on Saturday, informed a Courier representative, yesterday, that out of the 13,000,000 feet put into the west branch of the Rifle last winter 11,000,000 feet were already out into the deep water of the main stream, and beyond all danger of positive delay. The remaining 2,000,000 feet are at the west branch in township 21, range 3, ready to come out, as soon as room can be made for them in the main stream below.
