Four reasons against the use of
ALCOHOLIC Liauons.
BY JOir.V GKIDLLY, M. D.
j
In presenting this subject it shall be my aim
to state and illustrate such lacts and princi
ples as shall induce every man, woman, and
child, capable of contemplating truth and ap
preciating motive, to exert the whole weight
of their influence in favor ofthe “Temperance
Reform.” There are four Reasons which
claim special attention.
The first reason we would urge why the
use of alcoholic liquors should be altogether
dispensed with, is their immense cost to the
consumers. It is estimated from data as un
erring as custom-house books, and the decla
rations ofthe manufacturers of domestic distill
ed spirit, that previous to 1S2G, GO,000.000 gal
lons of ardent spirit were annually consum
ed in these United States; the average cost
of which is moderately stated at fifty cents
per gallon, and in the aggregate, thirty mil
lions of dollars.
Thirty millions of dollar? annually! A sum
which, if spread out in one dollar bank notes,
end to end, would reach across the Atlantic.—
' Or, if in silver dollars piled one upon the oth
er, would forma column nearly thirty miles
high; and which would occupy a man twelve
hours in each day for almost two years to e
numerate, allowing him to count one every
second. Or to suppose a useful application of
I this fund, it would support annually from two
i to three hundred thousand young men in pre
paring for the U os pci ministry. J]] three year q
it is a sum more than equal to the supply <;i
a Bible to every family on the habitable globe. 1
()ne half the amount would defray all the or- ,
dimry expenses incident to t ie carryingon
of our nations governmental operations every
: year. Thusl might multiply object upon ob
ject, which this vast sum is ado mate to ac
complish, and carry the mind from compari
son to comparison in estimating i s immense
amount; still the cost, thus considered as in
volving the ; ecuniury resources ol the country,
is a mere item ofthe aggregate, when the loss
I of time, waste of providential bounty, neglect
of business, &c. incident to the consumption
of this one article, are thrown into the ac-j
count. . . , ,,,
A SECOND REASON WtlJ US USC SHOtim DC
condemned is, the entire inadequacy of any
j roperty it jwsscsscs to impart the least bene

distillation, viz.—And when the alcohol isj:
formed by fermentation, then it is drawn oft J (
by distilling from its union with the other ma
terials in tlie fermented mass. Alcohol then
is strictiy the product of fermentation. It is
not and cannot be produced in any otlmr way.
To distill, therefore is only to lead it olfj
from its union with the vegetable mass, and j
show it naked with all its virulence.

Having considered the manner in which
» alcoliol is "formed, let us exame some of its pro

anv nourishment to the body, and conse
quently it can impart no strength. When ta

as it must be for common use, its effect is, to
j arouse the energies ol the system, and tor a

I or execute. Hence t he fallacy ol’ that doc-j
| trine held by some, that to accomplish deeds !
j of daring, feats of muscular strength,&c. with j
1 sueccss.-f, demands the drinking of spiritous li- j
quors. Were l about to storm an enemy’s bat - [

or death, l might (principle aside) infuriate my

spirit, and let them loose upon the charge, as j

Yours of the Oth instant was duly reccivrd.
A remarkable cure wasefiected by the Vege
table Pulmonary Balsam in the winter and
spring of Ir33. The person, Mr. Moody, bad
been sick a long time with the consumption;
1 iis physician had l iven him up. He w as re
duced so low as to be unable to help himself
and was raising a large quantity ol blood when
he commenced using the Balsam, which Gleet
ed a complete cure, and lie is now as hale and

I will forward you. - U. S. C lay.
Kingston, A#, i. June xj,
The vegetable Pulmonary Balsam has; been
sold in this county for two years, and the
medicine has gained an uncommon celebrity,
for it scarcely in one instance tailed ol Laving
the desired effect. I arn by no means in fa
vor of the many nostrums, most of which are
impositions, upon a credulous public, hut that
which I know by experience to be effectual,
I cannot help but give my approbation to.—
A counterfrit preparation has been offered
by a travelling agent of Comstock, N. 'i ; and
there is also another article vended here that
is stronglv suspected to be spurious.

Miffiinton, Juniata co. Pa May 3, IS37.
It ie now more than six years since 1 was
brought very low by an affection ol the lungs,
and my complaint was declared to be incura
ble by a council of three physicians. I was
then restored to as good health as 1 had en
joyed for’mnny years by using the Vegetable
Pulmonary Balsam. Eince ^ my recovery I
Iiave recommended the balsam in a great
many lung complaints, and so far as 1 can
learn its use has invariably been followed by
much benefit, and in many instances it lias
effected cures which were whollvunexnccfed.
