Since the enactment, by our City Council, of
the ordinance prohibiting the sule of liquor, on
Sunday, several of the b'hoy i, .old and young,
have been in the habit, in the place of attending
church, of taking a pleasure trip on the ferry
boat, to the head of the Sny, and making them
selves generally useful, in helping to wood,
Ste., in consideration of the privilege of taking
a jug of the crttttr along, On last Sunday
some person added a little tartar to the contents
of the jug, and the way it produced sj mp
toms of cholera, cramp cliolic, &c, was i
caution. The first feelings were a little
grumbling at the stomach, and the boys
would take a little -more to settle it, and
soon it would need still a little more to set
tie, ui'til, finally, the Ca).;ain, finding he
was about to lose crew and passengers, as
a meant of snv'mg them, threw the jug
overboard ; but the consequence did not
cenke here they presented a picture of a
vessel going to sea with a crowd of lands
men on 4joard, all laboring with sea-sick-
uess at once, and between the groans of
the suffering could be heard threatening
loud and deep against their self-nppoiuted
doctor, could they find him. One of the
party though; it was all up with him ; de
clared lie never had such on attack of
cramp relic before in his life ; sent for two
physicians, aud finally prepaied tw give up
tha ghost. Another mudtvon onslaught on
a pile of raw potatoes, as a means of set
tling his stomach, but he could notgel over
one potatoe down before 'twould come
roaring back again, with a sound like some
one hallooing "New York I" "New York I"
Now, we think that if this is the effect of
stringent temperance laws; if the health, com
fort and happiness of Ire people are to be ob

manner, then I say, for one, that this is no longer
a free country; snl that our constitution ii
abused, and we had best not have any at sail I I
