"1828, the consumption ol distilled snir its, in Ireland, according to the Excise of fice returns, was 10,000.000 of sallons. Besides this, a very lurtre aunntitv must be put down to the score ot illicit distillation which no vizilance; cf, tbe-trotfrnrucnt has yet been able to suppress. In tho i'nrlia mentnry papers for 1823, it is stated, that nt period when 3,000,000 of gallons were chnrged with duty, 10,000,000, in opinion of the uevenue committee, wero really mad In another case, subsequent to this, where 0.UUU.00U were charged, it was believed l!i, 000,000 were distilled. For some reason however, which does not appear, Professor idgar estimates tho pnvate distillation, in 1828, at only 2,500,000 gallons, winch, add cd to the 10,000,000 paying duty, makes 12,500,000 ; nnd this, by the addition of wa ter in the vaults and shops, raised it to at east 14,000,000. The cost, to the consum ers, could not nave been less than tune shillings per gallon, or i3,3O0,O00 sterling, At the annual meeting ol the Hibernian l'emperance Society in Dublin, held on the tyili ol June, lod5, it was stated by John Mackay, Esq. that no less a sum, than seven million ol pounds was expended on wins key, in 1833. Taking this as a fair esti mate, of the present consumption, in Ireland, the annual cost of liquid fire which goes down into, her vitals, and up to the throno of reason, is 935,000,000, But this is not all. In 183G, thcro wero 245 brewers' in Ireland, whose consumption of malt was 1,829,587 bushels. 1 he pro duct of this, must have cost the consumers from three to four million of dollars so that, including wines, large quantities of which tiro drank by the higher class in ire land, the aggregate cost ol intoxicating li quors must exceed y4U.0UU.UUlM Jow sup pose.tnis money were uirown imo uio irisn hannel, the loss would umoutit, in ten years, to 8400,000,000 1 Is it strange, that there are two million and a hall ot pauper in Ireland ! Tho wonder is, how" any thing can still be left to be consumed, by those (nrlnrean fires, which have so long ravaged theisland, But where; do tho 14,000,000 gallons of ordentspirits come from'? What substances I. in nature are put to the torture, in oruer to fill these fountains, and furnish these peren- uial streams of liquid poison? Not the vintages of France and Italy, nor tho cane crops of tho "West Indies, nor tho fruits of the. orchards: butthejwff or nje usen, Yes. tho eratn. tho bread which should teed tho famishing millions of Ireland, is taken irom their mouths, ana conveneu imo a uery iquid, to madden nnd burn them up, soul ind body together, I am not able, ut this moment to put down the average product, in whiskey, from a sinalo bushel of grain.

And infinitely greater would bo the imliimntinn and horror of all men, were some thousands or domestic incendiaries, not only lo burn up uve. or six minions oicorn in starving Ireland ; but to substitute noison for bread -...i i ?. .it .i i i . unu vcnu u au over ine isianu, to tno enor mous amount of $35,000.0001 While nil this is doing, however, evcrv thing is ns quiet ns a summer's lake. With mo exception ol a lew temperance agents and philanthropists, nobody complains, that mo people nre lust tarnished by the manu facturers, und then slowly tortured to death oy mo venders ol strong drink. The gov ernment stands and looks on, not with indif ference merely, but with positive nnd hirrh approbation; and even the starving millions themselves "love4o have it so." The Chan cellor of the Exchequer, in nrcsentinr? hi: annual budget to parliament, exults when he comes to the item or Irish ejrcise, and i cheered by the ministerial benches: wdil every hotly, both in and out of parliament, wond-ira nt tho incurable porcrty and de gradation of tho sister ialund- and all the wisdom of Whig and Tory cabinets, ns they successively come inio power, is oniiieu and foiled, as soon ns it crosses tho channel. Ii never seems to have occurred lo any admin titration that it is impossible for such a coun try ns Ireland to (loutish, so long as tho dc moil of intemperance is left to sway his sceptre over it. and it is garrisoned nnd trod den down by his myrmidons. The statistics of iti temperance iu Ireland arc so much like tliosn of our own country, nnd of every other country where it prevails . I I 1 . r tuai n rapid glance at some ol its more prominent features is all that justice to the subject seems further lo require. There, as well as every where else, the use of strong drink inllamesthc blood, scorches and scars tho delicate oigans of digestion, generates the most puinlul .diseases, exasperates them to fnlui issues, and renders many of them hereditary. It devours the substance, be gets idleness, pours gall und hemlock through all tho channels of domestic fellow ship, metamorphoses husbands and fathers into demons, mothers into lurites, and chil dren into imps and reprobates weakens the intellect, fires und maddens tho brain, sears the conscience, hardens the heart, multiplies crimes, saps the very loundntions ol roll cion and social order, and widens immune urably "the gates that leadethto destruction." Where intemperance reigns, the very breath of heaven is infected," tho clouds black and pregnant with wrath, shoot out their light nings, and the earth opens her mouth to swallow up that living moss of putrefaction nnd pestilence which it can no longer suffer . ... l I ' .'. r iu curse auu uisgracir us suuuce. The' reader may form n tolerably correct notion of tho stnte of tho case in Ireland, from the following brief minutes of the eci- lenecio which I have already alluded. It is said by somo careful observers, that twelve out of thirteen, and by others, that nine out of ten, who have becriTor any length of tirtio i .. .i. . r.!. . ii. t. i ... riifj'iij-i'u in uie spun irnuc, nave iifep great ly injured, if not ruined by it. Many shops are kept by widows, whose husbands have been killed by it. 1 know, says Professor Edgar, three such, one of whom had three husbands, and the others two each, who died hy drunkenness. The first of these had a son, who killed himself by drinking; a son of tho second was transported for stealing while drunk; nnd of tho family of the third, ttoo sons 'and Jour daughters became drunk ards, Upon tho Poworcburt estate in Armnghi (large enough almost for n duke dom,) tho inhabitants of which nro not'moro intemperate than those ol ahy other district, a sum equal toonu-third of tho whole rental, was till lately spent in spirituous liquors, Tho parish of Belfast, ns it is called; with a population of 60,000, pays upon a inodor- nto estimate. 44.500 pounds n year for distil led spirits. Among both mnle and female' servants, but especially among the former, there is reason to fear that three' fourths of them bring themselves to destitution by in temperance. Among artizans and trades men, tho case is very nine better, in one ard.says Professor Edgar, where filly men ,'ere working nt an average pf twenty-eight shillings per week, only six had saved any pressing for money in advance from their employers. In another yard, where 40 or 50 men arc employed, nt" from seven shill ings to thirty shillings per week, the clork states that thero is but one who has saved any money. Again. The masters or 38 establishments In Belfast lately, were in the habit of giving to their men, as a stimulus to increased exertions, two and a half glass es of distilled spirits daily, during soven months each yenr, thus expending about 1,300 upon 45G men, n greater amount than is voluntarily contributed for tho lodir ing. food, clothing, nnd medical attendance of all the poor of the town. This, instead of satisfying them, sends' theni lo the spirit shops for more; nndit is estimated that these 45G men drink 0,000 shillings worth (S30.- uuuj ui wuisKey in n year.

"Willi her superiors she played a deep, insidious game. Trusting to Iter strength of pride, she resisted their arts, while she almost invariably made them the victims of her own. In all this. Rose was actuated by something more than n mere girlish love of triumph ; she was ambitious, and had formed high hopes of opulent mar riage. Many a Cantaband Oxonian many a testy bachelor and gouty widower had got cntnngled in her foils, and had been extri cated only by early interference of proud or prudent relations. At length, notwithstand ing her modest manners und apparent art lessness, tho intrigues of Rose Mac Otne be came as proverbial as her beauty; she could obtain no service in any family" where there was a youth lo bo fascinated or wealthy old age to .be cajoled.
