THE Comm ?SP ?oner of Agriculture, in bia report'
for tbo year 1865, speaks ?s follows:
'.Them cac be no doubt of tho general adulte?
ration of all malt liquors. In England and other i
countries, whero heavy penalties are imposed, and |
an increasing vigilance practiced to dcttct and
punish auch fraudo, by a system of inspection of
all malt liquors manufactured before exposed to
salo, tho practico is very common, How much
moro in this country, whore lhere ?ire no laws on
the subject, and no ofliccr to carefully analyse the
products of tho brewery? Some years ago, Pro?
fessor Mapes, of New York, analyzed tho beer
from a dozen different breweries, and all wore
found adulterated with noxious substances. His
said that tho sale of drugs to brewers, is a profit?
able part of the trade. This ia perfectly infamous.
Oocculuaindiens, (tish lu rry.) ?ax vomie?, (dog
button, from which strychnine is obtained, j aro
some of tho delectable substances found in beeil
These are potent poison*, and the brewer found
using them should be drowned at onrc in ono of
his own vats, the Drilish Parliament passed a
law to prevent this nefarious business. Tho fol?
lowing is an extract: 'No druggist, vendor of or
i dealer in drags, chemist, or any other person,
shall sell or dclivi r to any licensed browor, dealer
! in or retailer of beor, knowing them to ho such,
or shall sell or deliver tu any person on account
?>f, or ii. trust for, any snell Grower or rc
j tailer, any li<|Unr called hy tin; .. : sold for
coloring,'fruin whatever uialei.^1 ino same may
bo made; or any material or preparation other
j than ungrouud brown malt fur the darkening thc
color of worts or beer, or any molasses, vitriol,
honey, quassia, COCCUIUS indicas, grains of para?
dise, Guinea pepper, or opium, or any extract or
preparation of molasses, or any article or prepa?
ration to be used in worts or beer for or as ? suh
utituto Tor mall or hops; and if any druggist shall
offend in any id these particulars, such prepara?
tion, &c , shall he forfeited, and may bo acized by
any officer of exciso, ami tho person au offending
shall forfeit fiw hundred ?HMltubl.'
"Under this law, very many druggists and brew?
ers were, brought to grief, and Net the practice
Continues. Unless the American public arc ready
to admit tho immaculate purity and innocence ot
American brewers, they must be conti nt, while
drinking their boer, tn cherish thc belief that they
are at the same time guzzling some narcotic poi?
son or damaging medicine. In view of thc unpre?
cedented growth of tho barley crop; of tho groat
increaso of the number of maltsters and brewers;
of tho vast unknown quantities of beer that aro
drunk in every city and almost every town on tho
continent; it is the dictate ol Hound wisdom, !hat
tho attention of li gislators should bo called to
the subject "f the adulteration of our malt liquors,
