—The dishonesty of the whislcey-bran

and the frauds proclaim the business
wholy and decidedly immoral. The
wholesale manufacturer or merchant
stands beside the streamlet heads, and
as the rills gather by his help, ho casts
herein the poisons which grow into
death: and the vender is the knowing tool
which lie employs to complete his accur
sed work. And the brewer of ale which
he draws from his rat-soaking vats, and
the ale and beer loving community par
take of their guilt. Were it not for

But, to sum up, for we do not wish
to be tedious.--is not THAT IMMORAL,
which creates unnatural appetites; which
perverts the bounties of Providence;
which creates and perpetuates Idleness,
pauperism and intemperance; which
diminishes the wealth of the people;
which impairs their health and spreads
disease ; which deterioates their intel
lect ;
which corrupts their morals and
fearfully increases crime; which increa
ses public burdens and taxes: which
shortens many lives ; which precipi
tates multitudes into eternal death ; and
does this too by deceptions and frauds
and dishonest speculations)—He that
cannot arrive at a definite conclusion in
this matter, and who cannot instanter
render a verdict of guilty, is incapable
of reasoning. He is an idiot and can
' not tell that two and two make four ; or
else his moral sensibilities are so blunt
ed by gain or self-love or prejudice that
lie has no heart to feel for the miseries
of his species. •
Let us suppose for a moment, that it
was arsenic and not alchohol, which thus
mixed up with water and drugs and su
' gar, &c. was sold in tasteful and be
witching draughts to our fellow men.
Would any reasonable man hesitate for
a moment what judgment to form of
such A trafic 1 And suppose that this
arsenic were inserted into our bread
stuffs—each loaf containing a portion—,
diseases spreading and deaths occurring
all around. When discovered, one uni
versal cry of indignation would ring
through the land. The culprits enga
ged in such a nefarious business would
be dragged to condign punishment. But
why rouse public sentiment more aganst
; the mon who poisons the bread of man
kind, than against him who poisons
their drink 1 Is the brewer or distiller
less guilty than the baker would be, in
the case supposed 1 Not one whit.
But we must resume the train of this
argument in the next number.

become pale and emaciated, but the contrary ; for
while it is the property of the Sarsaparilla, united
as itis with other ingredients, to remove all that is
foreign and impure, it is equally the property of
the Wild Cherry to retain all that is natural and

certain result of their united oporatione.

DR. GREENE—I take great pleasure in inform

ygenated Bitters you had the kindness to scud
me. For some twenty years I had suffered se
verely from humored Asthma. I was compelled
to sit up one third of the night, without going to
bed at all ; rind the rest of the time my sleep war
interrupted by violent fits of coughing and great
ihfficulty of breathing. In all my tittendance
upon our courts I Dever went to bed ill Not thump.

pelled to get up. Now I lie in bed without diffi
culty, and sleep soundly. I took your medicine
uccerding to directions. .The violent symptoms
immediately abated, and perseverance in the use
of the remedy hoe removed till its troublesome
consequences. The value of such a remedy is
incalculable, and f hope its virtues may be wide

I was finally induced to procure two bottle; of
you, and I hod not taken half a bottle before I
felt its effects upon my system , and after the use
of tho second bottle, I found' nrysel in a etato of
health as unexpected as it was gratifying. To
the afflicted I have no hesitation in recommend
