p.366 We understand that one of the principle Forwarding Merchants of Prescott is engaging Masters and hands for Durham Boats upon condition of their abstaining from the use of ardent spirits. Such terms of service, we doubt not, will be found advantageous to both parties. It will be better for the men, as to their earnings, health, and morals, and they will be more trustworthy and at all times to be depended on. Besides, the example will be salutary. We hope to see the same practice eventually adopted on board our Steam Boats and all other boats and vessels. It will save many individuals and families from intemperance, poverty and ruin.
