The Blessing already experienced arising from the Pastara of the Law seem to is to be very great indeed prospectively if i continues in Force they must be beyond All Competition. A the urgent demands for Relief made upon my a a poor a purse from the 1st of october to the Foth december 51, compared with those of the corresponding period of 50, were Only Cine sixth and the amount of rid granted during the same periods was $1 in %i,to$5afid%o. But theadoes by Quot no Means present a sufficiently Clear View of tire beneficial change actually wrought in the condition of the poor for As above intimated i was Prev Ion to the Temperance Reform chiefly concerned during the Winter to keep the poor Frodo perishing or from the severest suffering from cold and hunger but now 1 am helping them to keep themselves comfortable decent and respectable. Now sideling the terrible ravages of intemperance in other and larger cities statistics May seem to trifling too mention but let it be recollected that i am giving not the statistics of intemperance in the City but Only a few fact within my own sphere of observation. During the Winter of ,scarcely a Day pissed Quot on which 1 was not called Tipon in numerous instances to Render Relief to a spilies ten the very verge of a Lar vation. Or freezing whose destitution and suffering were the immediate consequences of intemperance. It1 not a single Case of the kind or one in any Wise analogous to it has occurred within my knowledge for six months past. The Calls for Relief made upon the in cases of real distress during the Winter in question were usually from five to Twenty daily to say nothing of the Ordinary Calls to obtain employment Etc., Etc. But for the last four months a period embracing of the severity of our Long Winters i have not had five or i any who were utterly callous to moral impressions Ore becoming susceptible to them we Are beginning to exhume and resuscitate ent Calls for immediate Relief on a single of Portland wednesday March or dear 3� an unusual pressure of business for the last ten Days has obliged me to defer answering your letter of Jereb. 29, till the present moment., you request me a to fun Rush some details of the diminution of poverty and suffering in Portland said to have resulted from the Maine Temperance Low a . A i can comply with Ybur a request ouly in Avery Brief and imperfect manner but will tora to the pages of my voluminous journal Ond make therefrom a very Brief abstract of a Little of my experience and observations there recorded which i shall present with scarcely a note or comment a i entered upon the duties of this ministry an entire stranger in the City on the 1st of april lb49�?nearly three years ago. My first Endeavor was to make the acquaintance of As Many of the poor As possible to learn their Hiz Toije the cause of their a a poverty and suffering a to the end that if possible the True remedy might be discovered Ai d applied. 1 soon come to the conclusion 1 the Roo and according to my exact record More than Twenty secular Days have Oro ured during this period on which i have not had a single application for Relief. I have not Iun Essed a Case of suffering As the immediate consequence of intemperance during the same period and indeed 1 have scarcely witnessed during this time except from sickness and pain to which All classes Are alike subject. Of the severity of the season 1 need not speak. Rents were never higher in Portland than at present particularly of such tenements As the poor occupy productive employment in such calling As poorer teases Are usually adapted to has been peculiarly difficult to obtain during the Winter Ana for want of it Many of them Are justly complaining. And there has been More than twice As much sickness among this class of persons for Tito last two months As during any previous two months of my residence Here. / have not seen a person intoxicated for three months and Only one or two who appeared to be in the so alight degree under the influence of intoxicating drinks. Several men of my acquaintance who were habitually and ily drunk a year a ago u and Kep most Dot families were sustains and whose1 ept from per Ishing by the Hando f Charity Are now sober Bow from the most careful observation that fall non eight of All the abject poverty squalor and suffering of the poor of this place were the results of intemperance. My subsequent daily experience has thoroughly confirmed this opinion. The records of a three year diary made i think with utter impartiality confirm it of the first 50 families with which 1 be came acquainted More than 3>t had for their heeds either drunkards or widows whose husbands had died drunkards. Of the am families particularly under my care Darius my first year is residence my first year residence Here 150 req charitable aids none of these were City paupers and More than three fourth of this number were suffering from the effects of intoxicating drinks. From april 1, 49 to j Itzy 31, �?T51�?ft period of two years and four Tho 1 was doily with the exception of w a 1 to Haling Mem a few Days absence from the City in Contact with to and misery almost indescribable Ipha ring the unearthly doors of new eng is land nun emitted from the foul lunge stomachs of drunkards Witt Oesting scenes both heart rending and disgusting. I am sickened at the Mere recollection though i have not experienced anything of the kind for Many months i made a More thorough investigation of the character and habits of the first 100 families which i had Token up almost indiscriminately hav air acted to them chiefly by the in agma of poverty vice and suffering than i have subsequently been Able to Mak in regard to Troat of the new ones added and have been earnings some $1�?some $1 26�?eome $1 50 per Day through the Winter and their families a re living comfortable and independently. Some of these identical families were often entirely destitute of food and fuel sometimes for one Day sometimes for two at once during the Winter a year ago and were relieved through my Agency. 1 have made a special Point of conversing with very Many poor intemperate men in tin stifled and almost extinct conscience. We begin already to perceive that Many of Theoe poor a neglected and apparently loot men have souls and Are capable of High moral Elevation. Now the labors of the teacher the philanthropist the Minshan Tail will not to in Maui and like water spilt on dry ground a they have chiefly been heretofore in relation to the Large close of intemperate persons found in All Christian cities. Your benevolent ladies always Forward. To every Good work have till very recently hoped to reach the miserable inmates of Many miserable tenements ooh through the medium of their children. They have accordingly clothed great numbers of these brought Titean into sunday schools furnished them with books to Toce Home with the View of thereby benefiting their parents in some measure As Well a the children them selves never dreaming that it would a possible to get the parents to sunday school Aud to Church. But within a few months they hive conceived the idea old actually undertaken the labor of helping to remove the remaining obstacles since Tite great of remaining obstacles since the great stack is removed which have Humerto debarred those people from almost ail moral and religious influences and advantages. It is True that Many of Quot them shrink from being clothed by the hand of Charity but at the same time they Are beginning to put Forth great efforts to Supply their own wants to Avail themselves of the privileges of the Christian Sabbath. Not a few Are becoming Quot very regular in their attendance at Church who till i Rittin a few months Hod not in regard to their opinion of the Temperance Law. Some of these were among the most unfortunate victims of intemperance and i have not found among them All a single opponent of the Law or one who would have it repealed. They express a it Ronimous wish As far i have been Able to ascertain that the temptation May be entirely removed. Or c.

One Hundred dollars now will accomplish More for the moral improvement of the poor than a thousand could during the reign of alcohol and yet such will be nay such Are now beginning to be the Manifest Good results of All Well directed Effort in their behalf that we May confidently expect a great increase of Assuta to be brought into use for their advancement there Are Many other fasts in connection with my experience m this matter which i intended to have mentioned Bat i have already trans aided All reasonable limits.
