Total Abstinence Society
It is now sixteen years since the first Temperance Movement was made in America, better than fourteen since it commenced in Belfast, and ten since the Total Abstinence or Tee-Total Movement, originated in Preston, England, several years before it was taken up by Father Matthew, in Ireland, or was generally adopted in America.
In Belfast there are now two Societies, composed of Protestants of different denominations, and of Roman Catholics, all adopting the principle of Total Abstinence as the only safe and effectual remedy against intemperance, and hitherto conducted almost without any assistance or co-operation of the clergy, who have as yet, unfortunately, with only one or two exceptions, remained neutral.
"The Belfast Association" meet every Tuesday evening at 8 o'clock, in the Lancasterian School Room ; "The Cork Branch" meet every Thursday evening in Cooney's Court, off Ann Street. This last is also a benefit Society, and has a Bible Society and Library connected with it. Every consistent member of the Belfast Association, when removing from the town, is entitled to a certificate or recommendation, signed by the President and Secretary.
No party politics or sectarian peculiarities in religion are permitted to disturb the harmony of the meetings, or allowed to be introduced into the speeches, as the cause can be advocated on the broad principle of Christian charity and love. Not only in Ireland, but also in England, Scotland, and the United States, where it is now advocated both from the pulpit, and the press, the cause is advancing with rapid strides, also in Canada, Australia, and by our missionaries in the Isles of the Pacific, the West Indies, the Cape of Good Hope, China, the East Indies, as well as in Russia, Sweden, and other parts of Europe.

If it shall happen, that a pilot shall not appear alongside, and offer his services to a ship, or vessel coming from sea into the said harbour, before such ship or vessel shall arrive in that part of the harbour called Whitehouse Roads, or during such time, as such ship or vessel shall be in the said Whitehouse Roads, and having a jack flying for six hours in day light, then, in such case, it shall and may be lawful to and for any person whom the master of commander of the said ship or vessel shall think proper to appoint, though not a licensed pilot, to take charge and care of the said ship or vessel as pilot thereof, and no pilotage shall be paid by the master or commander of such ship or vessel to the corporation ; and if it shall happen, then that master or commander of any such ship or vessel, going from Garmoyle to the sea, or to the quay of Belfast, having his jack flying, or from the quay of Belfast to Garmoyle, shall demand or require from the ballast office, a pilot, to conduct such vessel ; and if a pilot shall not attend such ship or vessel within four hours after demand, by a requisition in writing, shall have been made at the ballast office, then, and in that case, it shall and may be lawful to and for any person whom the master of commander of the ship or vessel shall think proper to appoint, though not a licensed pilot, to take charge or care of said ship or vessel ; and no pilotage shall be paid by the master or commander of such ship or vessel to the corporation.
Any person offering himself as a pilot to a vessel must show his license when demanded, or forfeit 40s.

To entitle a licensed pilot to payment, the shipmaster must grant him a certificate, signed by himself or his mate, immediately on the vessel's arrival ; masters refusing to do so, will be fined a sum equal to double the rate of pilotage. All pilots are provided with blank certificates.
