Temperance Society, necessarily assumes its present form ;a collection of important facts illustrative of general principles. A treatise of this kind, moreover, may be deemed a desideratum in the present comparatively infant state of Temperance Societies. The advocates of these benevolent associations, have to contend against long, confirmed prejudices and habits. Stubborn facts alone, will dissipate this popular delusion. Hence the writer studiously, and perhaps to his own disadvantage, in general omits such arguments, as in a work more popular in its character, would be deemed essential to its success.

The Author deems it proper to apologise for any inadvertences or omissions which may have crept into a work that comprehends subjects so numerous and so miscellaneous, and which has been written in the hurry and confusion of professional pursuits.
