“FOR THE PILOT.
“Messrs. Baker & Newton:
        “I have for some time witnessed the vicious and immoral habits of the youth of this village – and have waited with anxiety for a reformation to take place, either through the interposition of those under whom they are immediately placed, by means of wholesome advice, coercion, or by the civil authority.  But from the deportment, conduct and daily (or rather nightly) acts still growing more daring and flagitious, I am inclined to believe, that neither coercion or advice is given; and the magistrates are quite to remiss in the important duty of suppressing vice and immorality.  The boys of our village, mostly apprentices, not satisfied with nocturnal revels at the taverns, a common habit, but they sally out into the streets at midnight, with hideous yells, intermixed with the grossest profanity and vulgarity, disturbing the repose of families and terrifying the timid of both sexes – with infernal design break and throw down fences, enter gardens, enclosures and orchards, destroy fruit and fruit trees, vegetables, farming utensils and everything their malignant hearts can devise and their strength execute, is done with unparalleled atrocity.
        “It is not only of the abuses committed by the effects of inebriety and intemperance, when a loose is given to every mischievous passion, that I complain, but of a vice very prevalent among all classes of people, and particularly attached to the youth of our village. – It is gambling.  In every nook and corner are to be found, lads from fourteen to eighteen years of age, playing at cards for money.  And their propensity for cards has become so great, that they spend the Sabbath in some out house or field in gambling! !  Parents, guardians and masters, how long will you suffer the youth under your care and instruction, to go on in the mad career of infamy, and wading in the mire of debauchery?  You are amenable to God as well as to community for their conduct. – Masters in particular, are bound in law to ‘instruct or cause to be instructed’ their indented apprentices, and as apprentices digress the laws of society, so are the masters accountable.  To you then the peaceable tho’ insulted inhabitants look for redress, for the innumerable outrages committed.  Every person who trades, bargains, or trafficks in any shape whatever with an apprentice, is liable to be prosecuted by the master of the apprentice – How cautious then ought every person to be, not to deal with them at all. – Inn-keepers who are in the practice of selling liquors to apprentices deserve the censure of society – let me warn them to refrain from the practice, and not to suffer their bar rooms to be made the haunts of idle village boys.
        “Let me warn the magistrates to be watchful over the deportment and conduct of youth. – It is a duty you owe to the public to be vigilant in suppressing vice of every kind: And by your laudable exertions, you may be the means of rescuing many of our youth from the State-prison, and preserving them for useful members of society.
        “To the inhabitants of this village, I would suggest the propriety of calling a meeting for the purpose of devising means for ‘suppressing vice and immorality.’  An example has recently been set us by the inhabitants of Manlius village.  Let us unite then in the common cause, and be determined not to relax in the least the penalties imposed by the laws of our legislature, in such cases made and provided.
