B. oynton, ex-Chaplain of Congress, pasior of the Vine Street Congregational }hurch, preached to-day, strongly favorng the license system for the liquor trade, nd he aaid he had seen all phasea of the uestion. All argumenta in the tempernce movementa were inostly unsound, nd the temperance people would have fc laat to re argue the aubject from a ew atandpoint. He believed the late hasea of the movement were miadireoted, ind that they aimed at the liquor aellers nstead of intemperate men, who were ie fountains of the trade. It was like ;rying to dip the river dry at the mouth ├▒atead of the fountain. Reform in thia mu8t come from the purification of the idividual and of aociety.
