Error Corrected.- It seems to be the impression with many, that if the use of ardent spirits should be relinquished, there would result a deduction from the general business of the country, equal or nearly so to the whole cost of liquors. Nothing can be further from the truth than this. The rate of expenditure for each individual, as a general rule, is so much as he can afford; or, in other words, the whole amount of his earnings, except a small portion which is laid out as accumulating wealthy. If, then, we can ascertain who makes most, the drunkard or the sober man, we shall have ascertained which will have most to sell and most to buy. It will not be disputed that the consumption of spirits, as a whole, lessens the productive industry of the consumers, at least as the cost of the liquor. If this be so, and if the annual cost of spirits consumed in the United States is 30,000,000 dollars, then to abolish the use of them altogether would increase our productive industry to the same amount. The community would have 30,000,000 more to sell; they would consequently buy 30,000,000 more than they now do-and thus the whole business of the country would be augmented 60,000,000 dollars; an increase, which in these dull times would be very acceptable. Besides this, many a farm which is now overgrown with thorns would wave with corn; the broken hedges would be rebuilt; the rickety tenements repaired; and in place of a tippling business in rum, there would be produce to be sold, and calicoes, broadcloths, hardware, groceries, nay, carriages and equipages to be bought.--Pat.
