''There can be no doubt of thc general adulte?
ration of all m,ilt lie j nor:<. In England and other
countries, whero heavy penalties are imposed, and
an increasing vigilance practiced to detect and '
punish such frauds, by a system of inspection of
all malt liquors manufactured before exposed to
sale, thc practice itt very common. How much
more in thia country, where thore are no laws on
the subject, and no officer to carefully analyze tho
products of tbc brewery? Some years ago, Pro?
fessor Mapee, of New York, analyzed too beer
from a dozen different breweries, and all .were
found adulterated with noxious substances. It is
said that the salo of drugs to brewers, is a profit?
able purl pf the trado. This is perfectly infamous.
Coomina indicus, (fish-berry,) nnx v?mica, (dOg
buttou, from which strychnine ie obtained,) aro
Homo of the delectable substances found in beer!
These are potent poisons, aud the brewer found
using them should be drowned at once in one of
his own rats. The British Parliament passed a
law to provont thia nefarious business. The fol?
lowing is an extract: 'No druggist, vendor of or
dealer in drugs, or chemist, or any other person,
shall sell or deliver to any licensed brewer, dealer
in or retailer of beor, knowing them to be such,
or shall sell or deliver to any person on account

tailer, any liquor called by the nano of or sold for
coloring, from whatever material tho same may
be made; or any material or preparation other
than ung rou nd brown malt, for the darkening the
