A knowledge of this lad should be sufficient to induce every Lover of Good society to cast motives of generous sympathy around those whom he would Lead by Bis gentle influence and direct heir wandering Steps in paths of peace and pleasantness. It is amusing and often pain Lully interesting to a vigilant mind to observe the precipitate changes of Public Opin Ion without any visible cause for such might revolutions in the great tide of popular Serin ment. But a few years since some Gen Irons healed individuals organized them selves Inlo Temperance society and styled themselves Washington tabs what a glorious appellation and hour happily applied to a society that sought to Mould their principles to the Model of that perfect Char Acter whose Wisdom shone As clearly in the councils As in the Bailies of ibis nation the organization of the Ciery was established upon generous and Noble principles and for the purpose of arresting the evil of intemperance whose growing strength had already become alarming arid threatened destruction to the moral and religious institutions As Well As to the political Prosperity of the country.
