Excerpt from Address of the Temperance Society of South Carolina to the Citizens of the State: With an Appendix

Those occurrences within the limits of our own State, or within those of the American Union, which are calculated to exert an in?uence for weal or woe upon the community, ought not and cannot be viewed by us with indifference. The era, in which we live, is one of great excitement. Institutions, venerable for their age and supposed usefulness, are overthrown and a conviction appears to pervade the world that there is a wrong somewhere, and that the happiness of mankind requires that a change should take place. Frequently, however, desolation commences her work ere time is granted for reflection, and instead of new and substantial institutions, adapted to bless the present and future ages, the ruins of the old surround us on every side. Not a few of those fabrics, attempt ed to be reared, and towards which the eyes of the world were directed with high expectations, have, like the heaven threatening tower of Babel, crumbled into dust. And it now appears, as f the world were to try the experiment, whether it is preferable to live anzonc the ruins of ancient institutions, exposed tothe attacks of beasts of prey, or in houses, solid enough in themselves, but affording, perhaps, less elbow room than the uneasy spirit of the age demands. \ve doubt not but this spirit is correct in the supposition that the happiness Of mankind requires a change, but we are also convinced that the mere destruction of ancient landmarks, is no better calculated to secure our happiness, than if we expected to find comfort in the burning Sands of Sahara, or the ruins of Thebes or Carthage. It is, however, not our intention, fellow citizens, on the present occasion, to point out to you those changes which we deem desirable for the happiness of our State and Republic, but we think we shall have gained much for the promotion of the public and private weal, if we succeed in con vincing you ofthe necessity of one change, which is, that you, as a community, should come forward to the support of temperance.
