THE TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. MONDAY, OCTOBEIl 3, 1842. ' Evil habits are to far from growing weaker from repeated ?' attempts to overcome them, that If thiy are not totally sub *' dued every struggle increases their 6trengtfa ; and a habit ' opposed and victorious, is more than twice as strong as before ' the contest. The manner in which those who arc weary of ' their tyranny 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 thev advanced, but ' before the 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 odcc, and leave her at a distance.' Ok. Simuel JonNsoN. A Benefit Society is about to be established in connection with the Tasmanian Teetotal Society, for the purpose of relieving those members, who from poverty or affliction are reduced to a state of ...

ENGLISH NEWS. London Correspondent, May 31st, 1842. DEAR SIR, I avail myself of the opportunity afforded by a vessel sailing for your island — to drop you a letter acquainting you with the principal events of the last fortnight — there are several events of great public and domes tic interest winch nave transpired, and occu pied a very prominent share of attention. Among these are the Queen's Fancy Dress Ball, the destruction of the city of Hamburgh by fire, the Proceedings before the Election Committees, a dreadful accident attended with heavy loss of life on the Paris railway, and an inhuman murder of a female, rivalling that of Greenacre, with the trial of the prisoner. The railway accident at Versailles is of the most appalling kind 57 persons having been killed, most of them literally burnt to death, having been locked up in the trains, -which caught fire, and were thrown off the line, and a very large number were bruised and in jured. The fire at Hamburgh is even of a more cal...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1842. TETLEY V. SHERWIN. ? This extraordinary case was decided for a fourth, and we hope in the name of justice, a final time, on Wednesday last, attheOadands Supreme Court. The case lasted, from , ten o'clock in the morning until five in the evening, when the Jurv retired, and remained closetted for six hours. They then delivered their verdict, three fourths being in favour of tlie Plaintiff. The case has been tried four times during the last twelve months, and upon every occa sion a verdict has been returned for the Plain tiff. The general feeling is that no jury in the colony would, after this fact, do otherwise than confirm the preceding verdicts, not even if the case were tried upon the top of .Ben Lomond before a Jury selected from the most timid and subservient men in the chain gangs. The Judge summed up strongly against the Plaintiff's case, but the Jury declined adopting his Honor's opinions in preference to their own, and those of...
