REASONS FOR NOT BEING. A TEETO-TALLER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 24 October 1842

REASONS FOR NOT BEING. A TEETO TALLER. Many and various are the reasons assigned, by one's friends, neighbours, and acquaintance for not being a Teetotaller; such parties stnvang to satisfy themselves of the sufficiency of their reasons —despite all on the other side have said,' do say -or may say. ' ???'?'?' As self-knowledge is admitted to be t-» prime importance, it is only V work 'of charjty to assist such, by stripping off the di8guiae,.*nd shewing the true ekin and jnuscle beneath. .

WOMEN AND RUM. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 24 October 1842

WOMEN AND RUM. ' Sept. 24 ? Arrived at Hobart Town, thethlp Royal Admiral, 414 'tons, Fell, master, from Zxmdon the 7lb May, with 122 female convicts, and a cargo of rum.'— H. T. Advertiser. STRANGE MIXTURE— INCONGRUOUS MATgMALi I We may imagine ourselves to have been spec* tators at the embarkation of these females on board the Royal Admiral. Our sympathy might have led us to address them thus : -' Go, ye un happy females, to that distant land, and although in exile, yet ye may enjoy advantages denied to you at home. Society will receive you — your in famy will be forgotten — and the path to virtue, honor, and usefulness is once more opened before you; and, as wives and mothers, you may yet enjoy those domestic endearments you would seek in vain among your own kindred or associates.' But ah 1 while we were cheering them with their prospects, and telling them to dry their tears on bidding farewell to friends and home, we did not see that which was hidden in the hold of the vessel.

TO THE .EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE.

But 1 have a duty to perform to you my friend— you are an old acquaintance and a mah'l respect, and deem it proper to inform you that you are meddling too much in the cause, and creating eneiniesfo yourself ; why not enjoy the fruits of your -abstinence principles (which all your friends allow are abundant to jpu) without in terfering M'ilh those who .enjoy their glass in modera tion?

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. MONDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1842 [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 24 October 1842

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER ANJ- TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. MONDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1842 ? ' Evil habltc are so far from growing weaker from repeated ' attempts to overcome them, that if thpy are not totally sub ' dued every struggle Increases their strength ; and a habit ' opposed anil victorious, is more than twice as strong as before ' the contest. The manner in which those who are 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 they advanced, but ' before the dr-Iivcrance can be completed, habit 16 sure to *' throw new chains upon her fugitive.

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 24 October 1842

TO THE EDITORS OP THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. Gentlemen, — Your being the advocates of Tee totalism, I take the liberty of offering some obser vations on the conduct of the Proprietor of the Launeeston Examiner, in regard to the letter which appeared in that paper of the 15th instant, signed' Philanthropist.' As to ' Philanthropist,' he is unworthy of notice; the Proprietor is the person who is to blame for its insertion. Report aays, the Proprietor of the Examiner is a man professing Christianity, and as far as outward ap ??.) pearances go, wears a form of godliness. I repeat that it is only as far as outward appearances go, for what man who is a sincere Christian, would iu any shape lend himself as a willing instrument to circulate as gross a falsehood as was ever penned. I refer to the close of the above letter, in which a body of respectable and worthy men are held up to the public, as tending to pervert the minds of the uninitiated in crime. The Proprietor of the Examine...

MEETING OF THE LAUNCESTON TEE-TOTAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 24 October 1842

MEETING OF THE LAUNCESTON TEE TOTAL SOCIETY. The usual meeting of this Society, was fceld at the Infnnt School-room, on Tuesday evening. The room was crowded as i-n former occasions, and the sneakers were listmed to with much attention. Our remarks last week eein to have had the desired ?effect, for the meeting passed off in a most orderly ?and peaceable manner! without any interruption. A very slight inclinatim to create a disturbance was manifested by one or two persons, but their discretion fortunately got the better of their tolly. We are happy to say therefore, that we have not at present any occasioh to investigate their claims to the jool's cap, as alj seemed to have a decided objection to enter intb competition for that dis tinguished honor. i Mr. Sherwin, who presided, said he had so often addressed similar meetings, and so frequently ex plained the principles of the society, that he thought it unnecessary to repeat them. They continued to receive the approbation of those w...

POETRY. THE CAT AND THE MOUSE; A TABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 24 October 1842

POETRY. THE CAT ANO THE MOUSE; A FABLE. Some time ago a brewer's cat Pursued a mouse into a vat ;   The mouse was so o'ercome by fear Of death, thro' drowning in the beer, That he to puss made this advance — As if he knew the odds of chance; — — ' Pussy ! I must to you confess I now am in a wof'ul mess ; And if releas'd from it by you, I'm yours — to kill, and eat me too !' — Agreed upon. The cat lean'd o'er, And brought the trembling mouse ashore ; But at that moment, you must know, Grimalkin sneez'd. and lei him go, W ho e'er poor puss recover'd, stole For safely to the nearest hole. In vain Grimalkin 'gan to plead   Upon the saving terms agreed ; The mouse but laugh'd, and said, ' Good soul, Don't think that I am such a fool. Learn wisdom— aim to reason quicker : Heed not what's said by one in liquor!' K. G. Ihbett.

ADULTERATION OF INTOXICATING LIQUORS. (Adulteration of Wines continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 31 October 1842

ADULTERATION OF INTOXICATING LIQUORS; (Adulteration of Wines continued. J To these interesting quotations, may be added some further remarks of Dr. Henderson. ' The number of hands through which wine usually passes before it reaches the consumer, the great difference of price between the first rate and the inferior sorts, and the prevailing ignorance with respect to their distinguishing charac ters, afford so many facilities and temptations to fraud and imposition in this branch of trade, that no buyer, however great his caution, however just his taste is wholly secure against them.' The cheap port wine sold in this country, is manufactured principally by that cla6S of chemi cal operators to which Addison has made allusion. The Wine Guides contain ample directions for its easy manufacture. A writer of talent, in the 43rd number of the Quarterly Review, makes the following remarks : — ' The manufactured trash which is selling in London, under the name of Cape, Champagne, Burgundy, Ba...

The Publicans versus Teetotalism. TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 31 October 1842

The Publicans versus Teetotalism. TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. Gentlemen, — I cannot allow an auspicious opportunity for advocating the true dignity of mankind to glide away unheeded, like water under a bridge, as has too often been tlie case during tlie chequered career of man's tedious progress, to wards a rational state of civilization. I cannot, I say, allow that under present circumstances ; the columns of 'The Teetotal Advocate' shall never by chance lack of matter calculated to advocate the glorious ' Teetotal' cause, when I can spare a few hours to devote to its interests. It is my humble opinion Gentlemen, that the amelioration of the human species was never ad vocated under better auspices, than in this of 'Total Abstinence;' for, in its being happily free from all innovation and interference as affects our church and state institutions, it must, therefore, not only be looked upon as it affects the moral character alone, hut also in a light which cl...

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE.

Your in sertion of it in your next paper, as a warning, will much oblige. . ? A Teetotaler.
