at the Presbyterian
Church, in McArthur, Ohio,
March 29, 1874.

the companionship of deity for
the companionship ol humani
ty, the Ireedoni and wealth of
son, and for our sakes became
ionr, yea, took upon himself
he form of a servant; sacrificed
ease lor the weary road to the
ernes; sacrificed pleasure tor

of the death of the cross. ' ' "

calls "a mocker." h was wine,
and native wine at that, upon '
which Noah made himself
drunken, and disgraced him
self before his children.
"Whoredem, and wine, and
new wine take away the heart,"
says the Prophet Ilosea. (Uos.
iv:ll.) ' If. wine is thus barm
tul, makes a Noah drunk,
bite th and stfngeth like an
adder, is a mocker to men, and
in company with whoredom
lakes away Ihe heart, what
shall we say of these modern
drinks, whisky and brandy,
and drugged beer, and import
eJ wiqi-8, guiltless of even a'
drop of the juice of the grape,
which murder men by niches,
and poison just as surely and
fatally aa strychnine or arsenic!
Let us epeak ot wine then, and
understand that what we say
of it may be said with even
more force of all stronger
liquors. Wine is a cause of ot-
lente, of stumbling and of
weakness to our brother.
1st. Wine is harmful In its
nature. It contains alcohol.
i' in irue mat some wiues.
light wines and domestic wines
as they are called, contain but
a small per cent. But they con
tain alcohol aud alcohol is
the. product of vegetable de
cay, and is an active poison,
and In Its pure state will cause
death. Moreover most ol
wines coutaiu enough alcohol
lo cause drunkenness il taken
iu sufficient quantities. Ling
before distilled liquors were
known drunkenness existed, as
well as the principle of total
absliner.o. It is well known
that it i. the alcohol in liquors
that causes intoxication. Il is
the alcohol also that produces
the - peculia exhilaration ol
feeling which cdnttilutes the
temptation to drink., . Ami this
is thi severest condemriation
ol wine. One tfriuk of wine is
so enticing as to demand an
other drink, and that another,
and that a drink ot something
stronger, and lint another un
til an appiiite is lonued that
miitit be ted, a habit lakes
hold ihal makes a slave, a dis
ease Is tautened upon the vitals
ha, demands more and more
fuel lor ihe fires ot hell, it is
the alcohol lit the wine which
cries, "give! givel" The effects
ol alcohol upon the system are
extremely injurious. Dr. Dick
inson, in the Loudon Medico
Chirurgical Transactions, gives
the results ol extensive . ex
periments in which be lound
that alcohol causes disease to
vaiiuus organs ol the body.
"Alcohol multiplies iiiflitnrra
lory stales ol the brain aud
occasion gradual sIiriiiK'ng ol
the brain. ' The" sloina'cii and
I lie liver sutler She. .lungs.
the heart and the kidneys, alf
pailake of toe disorder, in
br.iet and - final enumeration,"
says Dr. Dickinson, "alouhirt
replaces, more actively vital
maieriaU by oil nd fibrous
tissue; it substitutes supuratiou
I for new growihf. it produces
caseous and earthy change; it
helps lime to produce the ef
lects of. agtt; aud iu a word, t
ls.lhe genius of. degeneration."
In plain , language, . alcohol
pn duces diseases totall the im
t.nd vital organ ot the
tody, u hastens old age, and
produce premature death, '
2d. Wine is the cause of drunk
eiiness,'an.tl on account of that
of tuueh ' misery vice, and
crime. I have spoken .of. the
physical, effects of the habitual
nse of alcohol. There are men
who drink habitually, yet who
do not get drunk.1 Upon them,
as well as upon the common
druukard, falls ' the curse of
alcohol disease, deterioration
and death. 1 But -worse even
than th-se evils, worse lhan
.11
death iMselt, is the curse' ol
drunkenneidi which eventually
ialis u nria the' ffiaiorit v of mild.'

America an army ol 750.000

brewers and 5.000 distillers.
making a grand total of 190,583

paupers, idiots and murderers
About S3 1470,000 is received
as taxes irom these drinks and
tobacco, but 140,000,000 of it
goes lor crime alone. . 750,000
common drunkards and 190 5S3
men engaged in making drunk
ards. Almost a million of men
drunkards and druukard-mik-
erd These figured are startling,
and jet moderate drinkers say
there is no danger'of ever be
coining one of that army., This
army is recruited out ct the
ranks of moderate drinkers.
There, is danger of any man
who takes a glass occasjonaly
that he will be one of the re
cruita. lloy many ot these
seven hundred and fifty Ihous
and, think you, when thev took
the first glass, ever expected lo
be drunkards?
From what classes in eocietv
are the ranks of this army re
cruited? From all classes iu
society, Irom wealth aa, well as
poverty, from learning as well
as ignorance, Irom Ihe 'palace
aa well as 'he hovel. The pro
fessions are all represented.
The bar and the bench are de
spoiled of many of l heir bright
and shining lights in this army.
