WOES OF INTEMPERANCE-

24                       8s. & 7s.
THE MISCHIEFS OF DRINKING.
1   WHEN we think of chill starvation,
When we think of sighs and team When we think of pale privation, When wc think of doubts and fears ;
When we think of raging madness,
When we think of reckless beings, When we think of death-like sadness, Nature's most distressing scene's ;
3  When we think of horrid murder*
Female virtue lost in crime ; When we think of black self-slaughter* Let us ever bear in mind,
4  That the cursed love of drinking
Hath produced the greater part$ And that thousands now are sinking, Pierc'd by dissipation's dart*
25                          C. M.
1  GO self-polluted loathsome wreteh, The scourge of human kind, Go waste thy substance and thy state,
And brutalize thy mind.
2  Go haunt the taverns night and day,
The time thus spent in vain, Will bring disease and wo and death, And barter peace for pain.
3  Go like a demon to thy house,
Destroy each comfort there; And from thy sorrowing family Wring out the bitter tear*
