    • In 1817, a nailer from Skibbereen named Jeffery Sedwards gave up alcohol. Soon he had convinced others of the advantages of abstinence, and that year The Abstinence Society was founded. Soon 800 people in the district were members. I wonder if the movement spread quickly to Skull and if David became a member himself. Nevertheless, his lifestyle of temperance had certainly taken hold by the time he and his family had settled in New Brunswick.

      Name, Bushels of Potatoes, Stooks or Bushels of Oats, Bushels of Turnips,

      David Scanlin, 50, -, 8

      The supplies purchased in the winter of 1841 consisted of porl, fish, flour, potatoes and other articles at the market prces, of the issues of which an account was kept with each settler.

      The settlers having contracted collectively to perform the work at the rates specified in the account, the Commissioner has recredited them for the amount of work done, at the contract rate, agaiunst the supplpies advanced to them for subsistence and aid, in planting their lands with potatoes, oats and turnips.

      Due to Government from 40 settlers, purchasing 50 acres each, at 2s 8d sterling per acre, including survey, 266L 13s 4d.

      1 Value of 200 acres cleared land at 4L sterling per acre...L800
      2 Value of 25 houses built, 20L sterling each, not including camp-houses, root-houses or cellars, &c L500
      Total: L1300

      Probably value of intermediate Crown allotments reserved in the setllement, 2,000 acres, at 8s seterling per acre *00L.

      The average rates of labour in the present year are reduced nearly one-half from the above rates, at which the road-work was contracted to be performed in 1841; and the price of provisions has been subject to an equivalent reduction.

      Statistical Return of the Cork Settlement for the Year 1847

      Harvey, Cork and Mechanics' Settlements

      In the latter part of the year 1841 and beginning of 1842, the commercial affairs of the province were in such a state of embarrassment, that great numbers of mechanics and labourers found it necessary to remove to the United States in quest of that employment which they could no mlonger find in the province; and several of them having been induced to form themselves into associations for the purpose of settling on Crown lands, encouragement was given to them by the survey, at the public expense, of suitable tracts of land for their occupation, and which were generally selected by themselves, credit being given them for the amount of the purchase-money.

      The measure being found to be succesful, the regulations of 2d December 1842 were framed for general application of the principle; and various applications from associated parties for land to be sold on these terms were received (vide Gazette, December 17th same year), on which surveys were made.

      In the Spring of 1842, trade having partially revived, and ship-building been renewed, many of the peopl who had proposed to associate to form settlements in the wilderness, rather than leave the province, having again found employment at their respective callings, were unwilling, whem the emergency had passed, to take possession or go upon the lands perpared for them. The consequence was, that the Mechanics; and Cork Settlements only were permanently located to any extence; the Harvey settlement having been commenced in 1838.

      The survey of the other tracts, nevertheless, was of great advantage, as many of them have since been partially settled by individuals, who have purchased allotments in them under the subsequent regulations of the 11th May 1843.

      A very considerable increase is also yearly made in the quantity of new land cultivated by emigrants and native of the province, who purchase lands contiguous to the older settlements, which are this more and more extended in whatever direction there is good land, the settlers frequently undertaking themselves to open roads to enable them to occupy the lands, in anticipation of any grants of money for that purpose.

      Another class of settlers, again, are those who at once proceed alone into remote parts of the forest, and choose spots of land for themselves, wherever the superior excellence of the soil attracts them. But a great civil attendant upon this latter practice, is the absence of all co-operation and uniformity; and hence the difficulty and delay they experience in forming roads and procuring the means of religious and education instruction, and of obtaining access to markets even of the lumber camps.

      To His Excellency Lieutenant Colonel Sir William MacBean George Colebroke, Lieutenant Governor and Commander in Chiefe of the Province of New Brunswick

      The Petition of the undersigned humbly sheweth

      That Your Petitioners are all British Subjects, Natives of Ireland, and are desirous of obtaining land for actual settlement. Your Petitioners are thrown out of their ordinary employment by the depressed state of the times and the consequent scarcity of labour and will be compelled to leave the County unless some encouragement is held out to them for settlement by Your Excellency. That, with the exception of two or three, all your petitioners are well acquainted with the mode of clearing land, and with some assistance from your Excellency, your petitioners would immediately go upon such lands as may be allotted to them, and cut down through the winter preparatory to cropping in the ensuing spring.

      Your petitioners are informed that there is vacant land on a road lately explored by B. R. Jouett, esq. on the eastern side of the St. Andrew's road, and your petitioners pray that this land may be laid out in lots, and granted to them under the most favourable conditions which can be imposed by your Excellency.

      Your Petitioners are informed that a part of the said explored Road remains to be cut out-and having had great experience in such work they are willing to open the residue of the said Road immediately by taking out the trees by the roots at two shillings per rod- one half to be paid when the work is stopped and the remainder upon and inspection and approval of the road in the spring- This road Your Petitioners respectfully submit is wanted to be opened immediately and the frost will offer no obstruction for several weeks to come.

      Your Petitioners having been encouraged to hope that some assistance will be afforded them by the evacument during the winter-they pray Your Excellency that thirty three lots may be laid off as the Southern extremity of the said explored Road- and that Your Petitioners may be allowed to purchase the same on such terms and conditions as will afford them the greatest amount of encouragement.

      And Your Petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray

      The last 21 names signed for the petitions by their authority by L A Wilmot
      Fredericton 2nd Dec 1841
      The undersigned has consulted the above Petitioners and has much favour in recommending the prayer of their petition to His Excellency?s favorable consideration- The Petitioners have agreed to call this location the "Tee-total Settlement" and are one and all resolved to act upon the principles of total abstinence.

      L A Wilmot

      May it please your Excellency, Fredericton, December 1841.

      In consequence of my interview with your Excellency of yesterday, I have convened a number of sober, able-bodied, and industrious labourers in and about the town, to ascertain their wants, and whether they were disposed to settle upon wilderness lands, and I am happy to inform your Excellency that I have procured the names of 36, who, if a little encouragement be afforded them, as I shall take the liberty of suggesting in a subsequent part of this communication, will enter upon their work immediately with enthusiasm.

      The great falling off of lumbering operations and the general scarcity of labour arising from the present depression of trade, have thrown numbers of able-bodied industrious men out of employment, and I would respectfully submit, under favour, that such men under such circumstances, when willing to help themselves, may be legitimately encouraged by the Government out of the ordinary course.

      The site selected for the settlement of these applicants, is on the road lately explored by Mr. Jouett, on the eastern side of the St. Andrew's Road.

      If it be incumbent on the Government to dispose of all lands under the law as it now stands, by auction, of course the lots required must be subjected to this mode of sale, unless your Excellency could give the applicants a mere licence of occupation at present, leaving them an opportunity of availing themselves of any new enactment which may be passed at the next session of the Legislature, for the encouragement of emigrants and settlers.

      If such permissive occupation could not be effected, I would propose that lots of 100 acres each should be laid off and numbered, that they be advertised, and bought in by the applicants; but they should not be required to make any immediate payment, but their bonds to be taken on condition to pay the principal when they are able, and to pay the interest in each year.

      But the main object now is, to obtain the means of subsistence for the present winter should the land be obtained for them; the men are anxious to go to work immediately; they can build their camps and chop down for the spring crop, and I have no doubt from the character of the men that they will average from 6 to 10 acres each by the 1st of May, so that from 200 to 300 acres would thus be immediately reclaimed from a waste howling wilderness, and rendered at once productive of abundant crops for the support of man.

      But while the men are working during the present winter, they will require to be provided with food; and I have, after a full and careful consideration of the subject, concluded that the sum of 200/. at least would be necessary to make such provision.

      This sum could be advanced by the Government as a loan, to be repaid by work upon the road through the settlement, at a fair remunerating price to be agreed upon.

      I have suggested this course to the men, who will gladly bind themselves to repay every shilling in this way.

      This work on the road would of course be exclusive of the work alluded to by the applicants in their petition, and which I hope your Excellency will allow to be done immediately, as the rate is low, and the road will be much wanted even during the present winter should the present settlement be formed.

      Nearly all the men I believe have taken the temperance pledge, and they with one voice have determined to call their location the " Teetotal Settlement," and to utterly exclude all ardent spirits from their neighbourhood. This is highly gratifying, and while it makes me the more anxious to serve them, I am sure it will prove an additional recommendation to the favourable consideration of your Excellency and Council.

      I sincerely hope your Excellency will be enabled to afford the wished-for assistance at an early day, so that the men may immediately commence operations.

      I have, &c.
      His Excellency Sir W. M. G. Colebrooke, K.h. (signed) L. A. Wilmot.
      &c. &c. &c.
