WITH SOME OF THEIR CAUSES, AND A REMEDY SUGGESTED. It is universally admitted that "prevention is better than cure."

An inquiry, therefore, into some of the causes of those habits of the working classes, which result in destitution and delinquency, must be of importance. It can hardly be considered probable that men would voluntarily plunge themselves and their families into such extreme misery, unless there were some powerful inducements to influence them to such steps, which human nature is not able to resist.
That such inducements exist there is abundant proof. It is to these, which may be regarded as the root of much of the existing evils, that we are desirous to wield the axe, trusting, by the Divine blessing, great good will be the result. For example :
