His immortal mind is not less blighted, by this withering curse, than his dying body, ills mem ory, once retentive and ready, has lost its wonted elas ticity and power, "llis understanding, which could and wield, and elucidate almost any sub once grasp ject, becomes debilitated and childish. In his cups, the drunkard is generally a temporary fool or madman. His very horse exhibits the external symbols of mor tification for the load he carries, and his dog is asha med to keep his master's company. Hut idiotism and insanity are not always temporary in the case of the drunkard. Both of these effects often become permanent in the future man. Idiots may be found almost every where, who have brought this calamity on themselves by the immoderate use of ardent spirits. From men of intellect, and men of business, and, per haps, men of pre-eminent attainments, they have de based themselves to a common level of the swine. In some casps, reason seems to be blotted out ; and the miserable victim of intemperance lives and djes a lit eral fool. In other cases, still more numerous, there manifest approximation to idiocy where this de YVho has not is a plorable consequence does not follow, witnessed the wantof intellect around him? Who has not seen the shrewd accountant become dull ; the pro found philosopher rendered obtuse ; the arch politi cian bewildered ; the eagle flight of the learned advo cate flag ; and the precocity of genius, which, in the dawn of life, attracted the steady gaze, and promised giant manhood, dwindle into mental insignificance and death ? The world may, perhaps, stand and der at the change, and speculate upon the latent cause. But lift the curtain, and the mystery is solved. There stands the bottle and the death of intellect is in it.
