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

TO THE EDITORS OP THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. (jentlemen, — The enemies to tetotalism seem at a loss how to account for the vigilance and anx iety manifested by the followers of that happy system, in instilling their principles into the minds of those, who have not yet made the disco very that intoxicating drinks are a nurse tn nnr community ; but, if they knew the change that is wrought in a man who has entirely abandoned the use of intoxicating liquors, they would uo longer ask, why he does not leave others alune; he no longer sees as he had seen, or as they who ask that question see, his intellects are clearer, he is soon taught that he has had a narrow escape, the very idea of his swallowing (to him) the nauseous draught is revolting to his nature, he has before him in all their horrific forms the baneful effects of this dreadful evil, he looks around him with au impartial eye, and discovers that this souldestroy ing and unnatural thirst is prostrating thousands of his fe...

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

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. Gentlemen,— Although it is not a true Tee taller, not having signe(F the , pledge, who ad dresses you, yet it is one who feels much pleasure and delight in aiding any cause or society with which the good of mankind at large, both men falllv nnrl lirtriillr ic /wnnDpfjajl ar\A nrlii/,li lino fn» its object the bringing up the depraved and in temperate members of ; society out of the mire of wretchedness and iniquity, thereby endeavouring to place their feet on the more elevated standing of comfort, peace, and righteousness. I am aware that teetotalism is not religion — that being a total abstinence man does, not constitute a Christian character — that disavowing the use of all fer mented liquors does not cause the man of an un curbed/evil, and impure disposition, to become a man possessing a peaceful and gentle mind. No, but it leads to it; it is the road -to happiness, to which so many, previous to signing your pledge, were total ...

GOOD NEWS FROM AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 31 October 1842

GOOD NEWS FROM AMERICA. We have received by the American ship Lark, news to the 18th April. The Cause of Temperance is still progressing. We give a few extracts :— In the State of Pennsylvania, there was in the year 181;3, 1500 distilleries; there are only 10 ro muiniug at the present time. More than four hundred rum-shops have been closed in Maine during the past year The Governor of Bermuda has taken the total abstinence pledge, and given a large donation for the circulation of Temperance publications. It is customary for the Mayor of the City of New York to receive his friends and the officers of the city on New Year's Day. On these occasions, it has been usual to provide the most expensive wines, &c, for the entertainment of the visitors.: last New Year's Day, nut a single drop of intox icating dring was provided.

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

ADULTERATION OF INTOXICATING LIQUORS. ( Adulteration of Winet continued. ) ' We commenced this subject in our last, and ?hall continue it from time to time, as our space will permit. About 1812, some strange facts came before the notice of the public, which exhibit the practices of the craft, as well as the vitiated tastes of those by whom these wines are consumed. Some com plaints were made respecting the method then commonly adopted, of adding brandy to wine, in order, as it was affirmed, to bring it to a state of perfection. The correspondence took place between the agents and factors of the Oporto Company, and may therefore be considered as authentic. The agents make the following ob servations, in reply to a letter of the factors who defended the practice as necessary for the exten sion of the trade: — ' The English merchants knew that the first-rate wine of the factory had become excellent; but they wished it to exceed the limits 'which nature had assigned to it, and ? that wh...

TO THE FRIENDS OF TEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 31 October 1842

TO THE -FRIENDS OF TEMPERANCE. (From a Correspondent.) There are some persons who are not content with maintaining a position in opposition to Temperance, but who exert themselves in se ducing others from the only safe path to so briety in which they have walked, — the way of teetotalism.- These enemies of truth not only close their own eyes to the light, but seek to withdraw those who are now illu minated to their own dreary chamber of dark ness. Many good men cannot agree with our principles, and yet towards them we can still stretch the liandof cordial friendship : this is because we duiow them to act upon fight feel ing, inasmuch as, though they acknowledge the good Teetotalism has wrought, they can not yet see their own way clear to join us. ?But such men are sure to come in amongst us at last; because, being accustomed to act upon convictions of duty, they will embrace our cause when they understand our principles. Yet what can we say to those whose height of pleasure is to se...

A correspondent enquires, what we understand by the ' principles of the Society' and com plains that lie is unable to obtain a satisfactory answer to lliis question from any duly recog nised authentic source. His question is ra tional, and admits of a very simple reply. The principles of the Society, we understand to be, certain fixed principles, in which all its members agree. They believe that a system of total abstinence is tlie best adapted for accomplishing the particular object contem plated by the Society. They believe that ob ject to be one of charity, benevolence and patriotism. Tlie peculiar views advocated by individuals, have no connection with the Soci ety as a body. Our views upon particular points may vary, and doubtless do vary, from those entertained by some of our readers, but they are not bound by our opinions, nor we by theirs'.
