Hlamilton, Bermuda, Tuesday, December 13, IS81.

To the Editor of the .oyal Gazette. (
DEAR ME. EDrron,--Will you allow me space in I
your valuable columns for a word or two ? Thej
people of this country have been at their wit's end.
in the past few months to know what to do with |
our produce or how to dispose of it at remunerative
prices, but there is an evil existing at present in this
country that will, if not stopped, bring ruin and
desolation to many a home, even if we should get
20/ a box for our onions. Iwell know it is right to try
to get all we can for our produce, but I also know it
will prove useless-nay, a curse, unless there is
something done to stop so much liquor'traffic; it
seems to me that some men think of nothing but
liquor, it is never out of their minds, and quite out
of the question ever to refuse to take a drink; I
want everyone' distinctly to understand that I am
no teetotaler, I can drink liquor or leave it, just as
the case may be, but I am quite willing, if neces-
sary, to give it up for the good of my country. I
am well acquainted with men who smile and seem
very pleased if anything is said about liquor; when
asked to drink, instead of refusing, they are always
ready to swallow the accursed stuff ; I do not mean
to say that liquor is a curse to everyone, but to him
who allows himself and family to suffer from the
effects of it. Oh! to that man it is a curse above all
things! it is well known that it is impossible for a
man, especially a poor man, to bring up his family
as a father should bring up his children, if he in-
dulges in strong drink. I know men who should and
would hold a good position in the world and have a
very happy family in a happy home, had it not been
for drink. I would impress on the minds of men
the impropriety of frequenting drinking saloons,
especially those who can not take one glass without
an inclination for another; I would advise such per-
sons as that never, under any circumstances, to go
into a drinking house of any kind; if a man feels
that he can have a bottle of good liquor in his home
and take a little once in a while when he is very hard
at work, he may do it without any evil effect; but
that man must be sure that he does not hanker after
it. Some men will complain that they cannot sup-
port their family in this country and yet they will
spend from sixpence to a shilling a day in liquor;
I would ask such men as that to give up strong
drink for six months and have some energy about
them; and I will guarantee they will find a vast
improvement in themselves and family; oh, I en-
treat all such to try it! surely it is worth trying;
if there is anyone among us who says he cannot
give up liquor and try hard for six short months,1
he is worse than a brute and past redemption al-
though he may not think so himself; I, from my
heart, pity that man's wife and children if he has
any, for their lot is a sorry one and, oh my God,
what will his and their end be! I have tried to
use simple and plain words as I trust everyone who
needs it will understand me and improve by this ad-
vice. Mr. Editor, I fear that I have already en-
croached too much on your valuable space but really
I am so much in earnest that I think I could write
on forever on this subject. I have for years seen
the great evil caused by liquor in this little country,
but I am in a position at present to see ruin slowly
gathering over many a family who otherwise would
be happy; nd prosperousalthough the father may
not be what is generally called a drunkard, but may
just drink enough to take away that certain right
kind of energy and pride that helps a poor man to
fortune and happiness. Always remember that
whatever adversity may have overtaken him, or
whatever unfortunate habit may have fastened upon
him, no one is too old to take a fresh start and again
make a man of himself. Thanking you, Mr. Editor,
for this valuable space, and, if you will allow me
room, you will probably hear from me again.
Yours truly,

lice o! Hamilton, in sear nhing the ship before leav-

A public meeting, in connection with the above-
named society, was held at the Town Hall, Hamil-
ton, on Monday evening, the 5th instant This was
the last of a series of meetings that have been held
in the different parishes by the committee during
the present year. The object of these meetings has
been to arouse a greater interest in the society's
objects, with the view of increasing the number of
members in order to the early incorporation of the
The public attendance at this meeting was not as
large as was anticipated, considering the subject
matter thereof, namely, education. Probably, the
uncertain state of the weather was the cause of
the small attendance.
The meeting was opened with Prayer by the
Rev. Mark James, Chairman of the Society, who
afterwards stated the object thereof, and very ably
explained the objects and intentions of the society.
The Secretary gave a report of the Society's pro-
gress, after which three appropriate resolutions were
submitted to the meeting and carried unanimously.
The Book having been laid open for Subscribers
to the declaration, several persons subscribed their
names. The meeting was then closed with the
The principal object of the Society is, as has
already been publicly stated, to raise and invest
funds for the purpose of establishing a school or
schools for the better or higher education of the
people; and all interested in the most important
subject of education are respectfully invited to come
forward and assist in its early establishment.

Mn. RICHARD W. JERRAx having made his suc-
cessor acquainted with the routine of the Office of
Colonial Surveyor and the proceedings of the
Board of Works, has retired from the duties which
he was called on to temporarily discharge, and re-
sumed his position in the Royal Engineer Depart-
ment from which he was called on the decease of
the lamented Mr. P. Ness, to superintend the local
Public Works. The Governor, desirous that the
most competent services should be secured to the
Colony in the sudden emergency created by Mr.
Ness's death, called on the Commanding Royal
Engineer to furnish the best officer at his disposal.
The result was that Mr. Jerram was recommended
by Colonel Gordon to the Governor as a suitable
person to undertake the charge of the Colonial
Public Works. Though Mr. Ness kept his Office
in good order and the examination of his accounts
shewed a commendable accuracy still the task
which Mr. Jerram had before him was no easy one.
For he had almost unaided to make himself ac-
quainted with the various documents and with the

by his patient application and his practical know-

varied duties required of him and that he leaves
the Bermuda Public Works Department with
the best wishes of those who have had official
dealings with him, while the Public must feel
a satisfaction that their interests in no wise
suffered under his temporary administration of the
Office of Colonial Surveyor.

The Friends of this gentleman will be pleased to
learn that he has been very kindly and handsomely
received in his new appointment, the Parish of St.
Thomas, Grand Key, Turks' Islands, and that the
parishioners have made provision for him by a
salary of Two Hundred and Twenty-five Pounds
per annum, and have procured for him a very com-

Da"t Sta,-l have used your INDIAN BLOOD
SYRUP with great satisfaction and relief. I have
been afflicted with catarrh for a long time, could
get nb relief, until I commenced using the BLOOD
SYRUP. I was about to give it up because imme-
diately after taking it made me dizzy and feel badly,
but on consulting a physician was informed that it
was caused by the medicine restoring my imperfect
circulation and acting on the diseased matter in my
stomach, caused by the droppings of the catarrh
matter. I invariably found, however, that this dizzy
feeling soon passed away, my nervous system was
tranquilized, and the catarrhal poison removed by
the medicine. 1 have been entirely cured by your
invaluable remedy.
