This table is designed as a help to all classcs of spirit drinkers, from the man who uses his gill per day, to the man who uses his pint, and the one who uses his quart, and closes the day in a state of intoxication, Each of these classes may, by inspection of this table, see the quantity they will drink in one, two, or five years, and so on to thirty.

We have also calculated the expense of drinking, from one to thirty years at different sums per day, from three to twenty-five cents. Few persons who spend three, six, or twelve cents per day, are aware how fast the amount increases, or of how many comforts they deprive themselves, by their habit of small expenditures. One thing, however, must be noticed in the expense part of this table; no interest is added to the principal, and no calculation is made for loss of time, &c. These would greatly increase the respective sum total. - Temp. Rec.

All communications, relative to the general concerns of the American Temperance Society, may be addressed to the Rev. Justin Edwards, Corresponding Secretary, ANDOVER, Mass.

Donations and the payment of subscriptions, and all communications with regard to money, may be sent to Hon. GEORGE ODIORNE, Treasurer of the Society, 97 Milk Street, Boston.
