'I'lie statement is made in a letter 10 the ediltjrsof the lios- timesrin consequence of which the old man has lost all thirst for spirituous li quors, and appears like another man. He says, it cost him fifty dollars a year to get driuiiM and now he does n»t love strong drink, and therefore he infers ihat he may yet rise in the world. 'I’his case is of two or three weeks continuance on - •y* Mr. S. a respectable mechanic, welf known here and highly esteemed by ma ny of our acquaintance, says that he has a young friend who was subject lo fits of intoxication, once in two or three weeks. He took, the medicine 6 or,7 weeks ago, and lost all hankering for spirituous liquors. Mr S. an old man, whom I saw, says i he was ten years addicted to intemper ance. He took the medicine 5 or 6 weeks smce, in cons* quence of which he has lost all hankering for spirituous liquors. —His employer, a gentleman of respec- t ibility, conliruiS this statement, and say? ! be dismissed this man from his scrvicc? I)efbre he look this medicine and has re* sioied him since. I saw both the indi viduals here spoken of. Mr K. an industrious mechanic, whon« I saw, says liis brother-in-law, a youth of 19 years, had become a curse to hiinselC and his friends, and had become so sot tish, as to make it necessary to take hint to the hospital. The physicians at the hospital, said he could not have Jived a fortnigbt, in the continuance of such ex~ cess. This young man took the mcdi- cine eight weeks ago, in consequence oC which he has lost all ihirst for spirituous liquor, and cannot be tempted to touclii it. His appearance is changed to that o£ u temperate and healthy youth. Hisr broiher-in-Iawcan use no language strong enough to express his confidence in th® efficacy and value of this remedy. Mr. I), a mechanic in the same neigh borhood, took this medicine about one week since, having been previously, as we learnt from himself and wife very in- teiiiperate, and now he has no relish for spirituous liquors. There were great indications of joy and gratitude in the countenancc and expression of these peo ple. P. K. took the medicine about the same time with D. lie had been in the habit of drinking 15 or 16 glasses per day, and in his last fit of intoxication, he was drunk ftve days. His' cups v/ere the first thing in the morning and the last at night— and for the last 4 or 3 years, he has been very much abandoned. His dreadful thirst for spirituous liquors is quenched, and he says he is willing to protlaim to the world the benefit he has received from Dr. Chalmers. Mr. A. a young man thirty years of age, has been dreadfully intemperatt* 13 years. His father, who is now dead, was the same, and brought up his son in his own habits. This young man, has. been twice a lunatic; three times brought ‘to the gates of death by fits 3 ten times committerl to the watch house ; and re peatedly brought home drunk to his mo ther who is a widow, all in consequences of intemperance. He took the medicine seven weeks ago last Friday, and contin* ued to take it till the Tuesday following- and he has had no desire of spirituous li- (juors since. The facts in this case V9-e coiled from his mother, his employer and himself. I have seldom seen a more grateful and happy woman than his mo- iber. (Jur societies for suppressing in’empon* ance, in our humble opinion, w )ul(l do more good, l)y purchsaing this medicine, and administering ilgi-atis lothe proper subjects, than they can ever ehect by puWishing tracts or newspapers, or by bolding public meetings. Their Tr.ictJi and Newspapers are. noi read, and fbeir I meetings are not attended by drunkards. Ik'nton Courif'r. Rc'-ordei', iiom Mi.
