That destitution is the fruitful source of crime, and, in most cases, the unhappy fruit of improvidence and intemperance, daily observation and experience afford too much proof to admit of the possibility of a doubt. 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.
