CAUSES OF INTKMI'UBANCK.
The late I’resiileni DvMgbt, in a ser
mon on intemperance, mentions, among
the causes of that most fatal and alarm
ingly prevalentevil, the following:—
1. Example. '2. Frequenii'ig tli«jse
phices where strotigdrink is conveniently
obtained. 3. F.vil companions. -1. Cus
tomary And regular drinking.
Its kiiilu — 1. Il exhibits the subject of
it in the light of exirernt; odiousneas, and
degradation. 2. Drunkenness exposes
the subject of it to manv, and those ol-
teri extreme ilangers. The drunkard
exposes himself to many itinptations and
many sins. 1. A drunkard necessarily
wastes liisown property. 5. 'i’he drunk
ard destroys his health. C. The drunk
ard wastes his reputation. 7. The
drunkard destroys his rea-son. 8. The
drunkard destroys his usefulness. 9.
Tde ilrunkard ruins hi# family.—(1. Ih
spreads through his family the habit ol
inloxicatiun. 2. By squandering iheir
property, he deprives them of both coni-
i'ort and respectability. 3. lie breaks
their hearts by sutijecting them lo insup
portable mortilication.) 10. The drunk
ard destroys his life. 11. The drunkard
ruins his soul.
A late Liverpool |)aper gives the fol
lowing direciions for obtaining flowers
of ditfcreni colors, on the same siem.—
“Split a small twig of the Klder bush
lengthwise, and having scooped out me
pith, fill each of the compartments with
seeds of llovvers of dilierent sorts, but
which blossom about the sanie time, sur
round them vkiih mould, and then, tying
together ihe two bits of wood, plant the
whole in a j)ot filled with earth properl)
prepared. The stems of the dift'erent
flowers will thus be so incorjiorated as to
exhibit to the eye only one stem, throw
ing out b'ancbes covered with flowers
analogous to the seed which produced
them.
The biter bit.—A travelling tin mer
chant, (says the Schoharie N. Y. Repub
lican,) from tlie land of “ wooden nut
megs and 'jorn gun flints,” while moving
with his portable ware-house ihrougii an
adjoining town, called upon a very shrewd
descendant of St. Crispin, or in other
words, a pretty “ wide awake” shoema
ker, who, having on hand a Plattsburgh
dollar, thought the present opportunity a
very tine one for disposing ol it—besides
the immortal honor he would acquire by
having “taken in a Yankee pedlar,” a
consideration of no small importance, il
being generally believed a difficult point
lo accomplish, lie accordingly bought
a tin paste horn^ and giving a k?wiving wink
to the by-slanders,offered his I'lattsburgh
bill, and requested Ins change. The
pedlar looked grave, and sliojk his head
—he did not like the bill, he said, for he
had heard the bank was down. Crispin
said, “there wasiK^ such thing—the re
port was set ailoat by brokers and spec
ulalors, men not to be relied upon—the
bills were j)erl‘cctly good; as good as
specie—and as to that inaiter, a little bet-
tei, because it w^s less trouble to carry
Itand all the spectators joined with
him, in recommending the bill to be a
good bill, and the bank tiiat issued it, to
be a bank of “exceeding good rcjjuie.”
'I’he Inll ijeingso highly recommended, the
unsusjAclin" pedlar put ii in his pocket
and liaiided out the change—the by slan
ders pul on long faces—the shoemaker
lauglied behind his ears, and no one
looked renllij honest bui the pedlar, liul
trading dul tiot stop hei ; Crisjiin, el::l
ed with his success, clVeied to sell the
man of tin a lot of shoes, at a ieduced
price, for cash. The pedlar haigained
for them ai SlO—deposited the shoes in
the cart-box—paid the amount in Plntts-
hvrgh bills—and ilrove leisurely ofl', wbis-
ihng the old tunc of cul'\'i a a ami a-

The Manvfnctnritig Districts.—The Liv
erpool Courier «jf tlie 2Glb, s;iys—“The
accounis from difVerenl parts (d’ out

continue to be of a vctv painful desci ip-
lion; and w hat hf.s added to the alarm i^,

otlier places, meetings have been called bv
siHiie desperate and iuocious wreiches,
in order to inilame the sutJering popula

It is, however, but justice to the great
body of ilie unimployed workmen to slate
that little impression appears to have
been made by these inflammatory har
angues, and the more secret means
which, no doubt, have been resorted to
to produce riot, in order that a few un
principled incendiaries may profit by it,
und plunder their neighbours.
The Albion of the 29ih, says: “We
lament to state the distress which we so
often have had occasion to mention, con
tinues to increase day after day. Some
hundreds of our wretched countrymen
added to tht thousands already destitute
of employment. An accumulation of
misery is occasioned which demands in
stant relief. The funds so promptly rais
ed by private subscriptions are exhaust
ed, and in our cpionion it becomes the
imperative duly of government to insti
tute an immediate inquiry into the state
of the country.”
At Manchester there were slight ap
pearances of an improvement iu busi

of strengtliening the g.irrison, as for

of those stationed at Larissa, called the
