TO CORRESPONDENTS. We solicit contributions from correspondents, and shall always feel obliged by the communica tion of facts — particularly of local occurrence — relating to the cause of teetotalism, or tending- to illustrate the evils of intoxication. The communications of Look Again will al ways be thankfully received ; it is necessary, how ever that they should reach us at latest by Friday afternoon, otherwise they must unavoidably stand over for a week. We do not feel called upon to notice thp letter of Q. Q. The writer professes to be a Wesleyan, and treats a minister of that denomination with a contempt and derision, that would subject him to expulsion, if he dared to avow himself. His attack is directed against the Rev. Mr. Turner, who requires not our aid to protect his character from such impotent malice TO OUR HEADERS. The title of this journal, it will be observed, has not yet been altered. This is owing to the existence of a doubt as to whether the title of a newspaper ...

MELBOURNE TOTAL ABSTINENCE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 3 October 1842

MELBOURNE TOTAL ABSTINENCE SOCIETY. A meeting of the above society was held at the Scots' schcol house on Wednesday evening-. Mr. Heales, senr., was unanimously called to the chair. The chairman opened the proceedings by expa tiating at some length on the evils of intemperance and the advantages of total abstinence. He said that two-thirds of the diseases to which men are incident, were occasioned by indulging in the use of ardeut or intoxicating liquors, which fact was of itself sufficient to frighten men into total ab stinence. The secretary then read over the various reso lutions passed by the society since its formation in February, together with the rules which had been framed for its government, and a report of the progress it had made up to the present t in.' ; from which it appeared that one hundred and six teen persons had been already enrolled as mem bers, while the funds collected amounted to £4 10s, and the expenditure for printing and candles, to £4 10s. 6d.

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 3 October 1842

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. Gentlemen, The excellence of (he principle of total abstinence may be inferred from the treatment it has received at the hands of many, in all pans of the world. Human nature has too frequently exhibited f U defects, py strenuously opposing tne announcement ot the most important ttutbs before unknown. Even Christianity was at first 'every where spoken against' by jew and gentile, and its advocates deemed ?' the filth and oSlcour ing of all things.' In fact, it has happened the better the doctrine, the worse the treatment both of it and its friends And Burely teetotalism is honored by taking its share of reproach, obloquy and misrepiesentatlon. Many of its opponents are well meaning men, possessed of learning, talent, and great influence; this is nothing new under the sun 1 Saul of Tarsus sustained just such a character, and yet thought he waa doing God service in putting into prison and persecuting to death, such as had embraced t...

Would it not have been somewhat nearer the truth, if you bad said in consi deration of tome two hundred aud fifty or three hun dred pounds, to be paid to him by the Teetotallers? and have not some of the Teetotallers boasted of the sum thit was raised for that purpose, in the short space of two days? Again, your correspondent A. A. stated that '-a Paul is placed fn the van of great men put forth by Q. Q., as the friend of tippling.' This he knew to be an ungenerous and wicked perver sion, and on referring to Q. 0,'a. letter ...

THE FAMILY CIRCLE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 3 October 1842

THE FAMILY CIRCLE. Cheerfdwess.— A wotuan may lie of great assistance to her husband, in business, by wearing a cheerful smile continually upon her counte nance. A man's perplexities and gloominess are increased a hundred-fold when his better-halt moves about wjth a continual scowl upon her brow. A pleasant cheerful wife is as a rainbow set in the sky, when her husband's mind is tossed with storms and tempests : but a dissatisfied and a fretful wife in the hour of trouble, is like one of those fiends who delight to torture lost spirits.'
