Mr. Patrick Carolan came forward and was received with applause, as a trophy of teetotalism. Mr. Carolan is well known to most of our readers. He narrated the circumstances which led to his impoverishment, and traced them all to the vice of intoxication. He at one time was wealthy and respected ; he associated with the leading gentlemen of the community. But through foolish speculations undertaken in moments of inebriation, and by being incapacitated to attend to his own interests, he gradually lost ever thing he had in the world, and became comparatively a beggar. He strongly urged the necessity of total abstinence, for no one could feel more confidence in the resolution to drink moderately than he had done, and yet he became addicted to the vice of intoxication. Mr. Carolan stated that whilst he was keeping a public house, if he happened to turn his head away from the bar, his child, about four years old, would think nothing of helping himself to a glass of spirits.
