To find that I had attained to any consider able degre of moral excellence would be equally aurprising and far more gratifying to myself than to any of my friends I have done nothing of the kind however. of I have undergone no great revuUion in my own filings nur du I expect to revulutionix* 4 an) body by tbe few word* I purp«*« tu say in regard to the subject of gambling. I meri'Iy wish tu tender a few observations for the con sideration of those men whose situation* «nd condition* in life are *im»lar to my own. To thoie men io whole eocixl ecale I bave ol* way* end alway* expect to move; and more especially to tho*e who are my personal friends and associate*. To tho*e men of Placerai»« and Quartxburg, who, like myaelf. work for their living, and who gamble for no apparent reason except to keep ourselves poor. 1 would a*k. is it not mete that tbe shocking termination ot our late friend * ca reerfwhenwo conuder it *enou»ly aa we should do) should prove a warning to us who are. and who have been for year*, on that same well-worn though crooked highway which hac led to bis tragic and untimely tak ing off. I wpuld not have it understood that I, for a moment, hold it to be a tenable supposition that becauae Jamea Thompson has thrown hi* life away, there are any more of us at ail liable to follow bis example. On the contra ry, all evidence on tbe subject goe* to prove trat of the many thousand* who indulge in tbe habit of gambling, only a very inconsider able per cent ever resort to the frightful al ternative of suicide to free themselves from tbe difficulties which the practice is ut all times liable to weave about them. It ii rare ly that we have to record an instanoe of a man's reverse* and losaes at tbe gambling-ta ble making biro so desperate and ao blinded to bia own inbareata aa to take bis own life, the highest boon bequeathed to us by the Cre ator, and one we are in duty bound to Pre serve to the best of our ability, uotil in his own good time be shall aee fit to redeem it. The teaching of Christianity, the influence of civiliaation, the innate conviction implanted in tbe heart« of all men of an eternal life al ter death, aa well at a natural abhorrence of a deed in itoelf so revolting, all oombined to preserve aod restrain us from self-destruction. Admitting then, aa I for one am glad to do, that suicide, although not entirely foreign to the practice of gambling, is but distantly connected with it. As it fa the extreme«! penalty, to also is it the remotest But are (here not enough and more than enough mi nor yet mighty reason« that ever go haed in hand with gambling and are Inseparable from it, whieh should make ua pauae in a eareer that me are morally certain can lead to no cod or result I any we all knbw that do at no good ; and farther I claim pot that every mao with common cense jndgment enough po enable Urn good itcai itively Id th» yariooa fame« of Aaaae, know* when he ia doing it that he it to a eertaio ex tent committing a wrong against the commu nity where he it residing. That he know« he fcfeommitting again! himself a moral, men tal, physical, aooial and financial wrong. Ev eryone of ua know that this practice In alt it* workings and influences is prejudicial to and destructive of every one of those easential principle» necessary to constitute a good man —a good mao in any one of* the five qualifica tions above specified. We know that there is no remuneration at tached to the habit, that it don't pay. We bave not been oonvinced of thia faot by the theories and preachings of learned men, but by our own bitter experience paid for with years of toil. The practice is destructive of our health, both physical and mental. It makes old men of us in life while we are yet young in years by leading us into habits of ex travagance and dissipation. We must all own that intemperance is the natural ally and auxiliary of the card-table, and I don't think it any exaggeration to say that eight tenths of us will driuk more iutox icating liquors during twenty-four hours spent at the card table than during an entire month while engaged in our legitimate callings. We must drink because it is fashionable ; we must drink to keep ourselves awake, and above all we must drink to blunt our sensibil ities to tbe unpleasant fact that one, two or three months wages are slipping from our grasp during one nights revel. When loser we play to get even and if we fail we often do tbe worst possible thing we could do—get drunk. Mentally it weakens any and every man who follows it. Not that it is at all nec essary for us to be endowed with any great mental power or possessed of any great amount of trained intelligence to enable us to wurk in a ground sluice, use a pick in ä uartz ledge or shovel rock in to a battery. lut this practice almost entirely extinguishes our love of books and papers an amusement at ouce legitimate and beneficial, and one too that almost all of us would embrace if we would let gambling alone; for it is a rare in stance where a strictly stupid man engage* in tbe practice. But is our mental power left to rest and recuperate while we are playing —not bv any means. I don't think the esti mate would be absurd to say that if a man would follow gambling persistently for teu years, it would cost him a brain eflort as ex.
