OLYMPIC THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 19 September 1842

OLYMPIC THEATHE. Mr. Watson, the manager of this theatre will take his benefit this evening. It will be seen that in con sequence of the arrival of Mr. Spencer from Sydney, the pieces originally selected have been changed Mr. Spencer, as a tragedian, is highly spoken of by the Sydney papers, and his servici'shave been secured for a few nights at the Olympic. He will make bis first ap pearance this evening, as logo. Mr. Arauin playing Othello. Such an attraction would of itself be sufficient to ensure a good house, but it being also the occasion of Mr. Watson's benefit, there will of course be a bumper. It would be useless forusundersuchaceitainty, to urge upon the patrons ol the drama, the claims which Mr. VVaUon possesses for their support.

THE TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1842. ' Evil habits arc so far from growing weaker from repeated ' attempts to overcome them, that if thi y arc not totally sub 'dued every struggle increases their strength ; and a babit ' opposed and victorious, is more than twice as strong as before ' the contest. Tlie manner in which those who are weary of ' their tyranay endeavour-to escape from them, appears by the *' event to be generally wrong ; they try to loose their chains, ' and to retreat by the same degrees as they advanced, but ' before tlie deliverance can be completed, habit is sure to ' throw new chains upon her fugitive. Nor can any hope to ' escape but those who, by an effort sudden and violent, burst ' their shackles at once, and leave her at a distance.' Du. Samuel Johnson. The benevolent and philanthropise objects of the Teetotal Society — its daily increasing im portance — its vast public utility — the diffusive interest it lias created — and the misrepresen tation...
