It is a notorious fail, that nol bne half of the tickets are fold whole within thefe five years, that were fold before that period ; this is owing to various caufes, alhong whieh may be enumerated, the high price at which they have been ifTued; and that the true value of tickets is better underload by thofe who ufed to be purehafers. The intelligent and enlightened part of the community do not buy many tickets ; to pay 61. or guineas, for the privilege of gambling for 10I: is to them too great a premium. The defcriptiou of men who have been the principal fuiferers by lottery fpeculations, have been retired traders,: who have been led to it by the defire of great gain without labour, or on the recommendation of fome how ft broker.

The holder of nine tickets would be entitled, to two prizes of 20I. ftnd one prize of 25I. if there were exattly two blanks to a prize, which make 65I. but as there are more than two blanks to a prize, we cannot ftate the produce of nine tickets at more than 63I.
