brother nor sister ! Does not the influesce
exerted on him by ardent spirits affelc this
whole train of relationship I The whole is
not yel told. No. There is another rela
intm,-hip more interesting than all these.
Perhaps tha: man is united to an amiable
wife, one wilho loves him. and perhaps
when he is himself. he reciprocates that
love, and were it unot for the introduction
euf the intoxicating draught. that harmony
which should ever exist in such cases,
would flow on uninterrupted thmugh a na
tural life :ime. Perhaps he is the sire of
an interesting oftipring. marked strongly
with intellectual endowments. Yet not
withstanding the amiableness of the wife,
uotwithatanding the pifns of his children,
are they not compelled to participate in
the same train of misery and want with the
hushand and the father. For, are not

Gied it so, and I cannot change it. You
see then, he not only brings upon his fami
y the samie train of miserv and want with
himself, but also brings opon them the ad
ditional low estimate in which he is placed I
bay society. The intelligent wife sees it.
She reels it. She bemoans the condition
of heerelt andi tfamily. She pleads with
ter drutnkenm husband. She remonstrates
with him, and as the last and most power
fl argument. she presents to him his own
urspring, hiis batke, and pleads in its behalf,
that he would reform.
Strong andl irresisiihle as this argument
may seem, it wont do. No. The man has
;iven hitnself up so an intemperate use of
ardetit spirits; his appetites are formed,
xertin;: an itnduence over his conduct, too
sowerful to tbe overcome bay an earthly
:onsideratiean. The wife eventually des
