Figures nnd Facts lo Snpport the SIotc
mcnt of the Good Women of
Memphis Etc., Ittc.
Our refiderS are aware of tho fact that
for sometime pa&taseriesof meetings of
the Women's Christian temperance
union have been held in this city, un
der the Immediate supervision and di
rection of lady lecturers from tho north,
thin being their first tour south.
Thid temperance union is the re
sult of the temperance firusadet
and cla'ms to haV6 millions
of members, twenty-three State ahxill
arv societies, and thousands of, local
clubPi composed rvlmoBt ehtiruy of
women, bid and young, who, diploring,
feeling and suffering the curse of drunk
enness, endeavor to reform mankind in
this respect &nd eradicate into?icalon.
The mei&bers pledge themselves to ab
stain from the use nf all malt, vinous
and alcoholic liquors, either as a dtink
or aB seasoning in food, and will not al
low it in their homes. Not satisfied
with thip, they pledge themselves not to
receive tne attentions of,nor to asapciate
with, any menqbet of. I he raai& sex who
drink"! any k4nd of liquor, beer, ale,
wine or spirits, who visits saloons,
or uses profane language This
they claim to adhere to, and
are conscientious in the belief that they
can accomplish a great moral reforma
tion. To argue this question is useless,
as we all have oUr opinion based on ex
perimental statistics, daily observation,
and judgment cool, dispassionate and
impartial. In this country diUnkennetB
la ou tho increase with that of its, popu
lation, but this vice seems ?li the Wester
becac3 it is oub which cannot be con
cealed from tho public eye. Hence its
seemingly enormoua magoitude, con
trasted with hypocrisy, disnouesty, and
other turpitudes of our nature. Among
those who have contributed interesting
Qgure3 how true, we know not upon
tne sub ject of intoxication in ths United
States, is Dr. M'Kinley, of Chicago, who
claims to have visiteu nearly all the
States in the Union, twenty-six peni
tentiaries, three hundred jails, roity
almshouses and hospitals, the haunts of
tha vicious anil tho palaces of the re
fined. " Out of every 300 men we are
told that 122 never drink ardent spirit
at all, and of 709 wolhen COO never taste
aJcchollcs of any kind. Of the 178 men
who drink 78 do so to intoxication. Of
these 78 we are told that 3 a-e confirmed
inebriates, 25 are periodical drinkers, 60
are ephemeral drinkers. In other words,
1 out of every 4 men in the country
drinks to Intoxication. The statistics
for the whole tfopulatidn. of" tbo country
show that out of 5,OOu,C0O there are
Gft.OOO habitual drunkards; in a, nation
of 40,000,000 thero are 400,000 habitual
drunkards. Dr. M'Kinley states that a
very large proportion pf the eAcesMva
drinkers are men ti! Buiture and retine
rribb.1 actors, lawyers, physicians, legis
lators and ministers ot the gospel. Out
of 11 congressmen 1 is a perpetual
drinker, 1 an ofscAsicn&l drinker, 5
drink ericllically, and 4 only are sober
at all times." Without entering into
an argument, we will say that
largely over one-half of the inmates of
the insane asylums have caused their
tflliction by tho indulgence net of
drink, but of a habit too hideous lo
mention. However, tne supposed
growth of intoxication, both in America
and England, has been called to the at
tention of the learned. Aud thoeb in au
thority. The London iuarlcrly Iteview,
in tt recent number, estimates tbn there
are six hundred thousand habitual
drunkards in Eogland and Gotland.

From 1785 to 1791, with a population of

tho annus! consumption of wina

which decreased to an average of from

bottles per caput; from 1825 to 18-51,
during which the population grew
to above twenty-seven million, tho
consumption of wiuo averaged a little
more than one bottle per head. From
1830 to 1S54. tbe demand was statiouary
at about 6 500 000 .gallons, but In 1S03 it
bounded up to 10 500,000, and by 1873 it
had risen to Just 18,000,000 gallons. It
Is claimed that tbo effect of this in
creased consumption upon the habits
and manners of the educated classes has
not had a daterloatiug character. This
condition is attributed to a number of
cauHsn, chief of which are the weaker
qualities of liquors drank, and the more
general diffusion of the habit of drink
ing, the consumption not being any
longar confined to a limited class of hard
drinkers. It is well established that as
the appetite inceases.the teverage must
bs strengthened, a fact illustrated in
Queensberry lodge, England, an institu
tion for the treatment of femalj inebri
ate?. There women have been known
to take methylated drinks of the most
nauseous kind, sometimes mingled with
shellac; in tome cases an infusion of to
bacco leaves has been u?od to strengthen
the whisky, and one patient used tur
pentine and shoe-blacking. These are
awful and horrifying fact", revealing an
amount of Inherent weakne-s that
makes m shudder. But whether they
can be corrected by an organizition eo
proscripJveand which makes social os
tracism a condition cf profane and
Uquor-dr ..king men, as dots the Wo
men's Chi I -tl.su temperance association,
remains to ie seen.

and so ranidlv thst the space between

In the city yesterday morning the
streets and sidewalks Were completely
blocked, aud throughout the day busi
ness in all departments was nesrly en
tirely suspended. The street-cars did not
bcgin rutining until late in the day, and
until heavy snowplows.drawn by double
teams, had cleared the traik from one
end of each line to the .pther; and even
then not half the usual number of cars
were running, tho company having to
double-tesm even the smallest c&t.
Throughout the day those who could af
ford the luxury enjybl sleighing to
their heart's content. Som6 of tho
turnouts were very c-lfgant, and
hardly to be looked for in Mem
phis, where tho. opportunity for
sleighing is to seldom nlforded. Wo
saw ai pretty cutters a3 are generally
seen In more northern cities, and the
merry Unfiling of the sleigh-bells car
ried one's thoughts way beyond tho lati
tude of trio temperate zone. Every con
ceivable shape of sleigti appe'irfd on ihe
streets during the day. Some of these
wore mad9 up by transferring the b?dy
of a buggy or rocfeaway to runners
made of plaok-boards; others wero rude
packiDg boxeo,hopped up on two planks,
the forward end rounded, so as to jump
over obstructions. But, no matter how
rude the contrivance, the occupants
ladies and gentlemen of the e'Mc of soci
ety enjoyed the sleighing. There were
thoae and they wore the majority
who could not affjrd even the
cheapest of the'o luSuriei, and
they, being idle by the temporary
stagnation f business, made it hot for
their more fortunate fellow-citizens by
Felting them heartily with snowballs,
odnlged to a certain extent this
would have been harmless sport, but,
as is always th3 casr, some of the mow
bailers, carried away by tbe excitement
were somewhat indiscreet in the itdis
criminate manner in which they hurled
hard-pressed snowballs at the lady occu
pants of the sleighs. Wo heard of sev
eral instances where the too enthusiastic
anowballer got a tin tar or an enlarged
proboscis for assaulting ladies with the
snowballs. It was rumored late yester
day aftertKon that a shorting-scrape
had resulted from one of thesa reckltss
snowballings, but diligent inquiry lailrd
to devel ip the fact. The great Ameri
can idea nowadays is burlesque, ar.d it
bgan to develop llsejif toward tho latter
part of the day. One instance was that
of a couple of geniuses who sat astride of
a single plank with a gaily caparisoned
hors9 hitched to one end, and traversing
the difftrent thoroughfares, seemed to
enjoy the centennial sleigh-ride as much
as ihoee more lucky outs who pranced
round gaily in their elegant cutter. An
other instance was evidently a number
of the marine fraternity who had mount
ed the body of a common road-wagon
on to board runners; on one side of the
wagon-body the word "Centennial,"
and on the other an anchor and tbe
word "Hope" were painted. We could
not interpret tho intended "take-off,"
but the turnout attracted considerable
attention, liaet night the colder winas
