IS ALE A NUTRITIVE BEVERAGE? (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 8 November 1842

IS ALE A NUTRITIVE BEVERAGE? ( Continued. ) By tliis time 1 Jiope you will he ab!-? to see Uiat the opinion which has long prevailed us to the nutritious properties of ale is a great delusion. I beg here also to state, that in order to produce the poisonous liquors under the names of ale, porter, whisky, and gin, not loss tlutn forty mil lions hi bushels ot «oort -iram are destroyed every year. If our ale and porter were made from puving stones, materials of the least cost, it would be bad enough ; but to destroy so much good grain, given as fooH for man and beast, is little less than treason asainst 'lie British people and against God. If the; ijiiimtity should fail to produce a suitable impression as expressed by figures, allow me to illustrate this point by stating, that were this quantity spread out three 'feet deep and thirty feet wide, it. would cover a road 1U8 miles in length' I If, instead of stowing this grain in the granary, the farmer, at harvest time, were to discharge ...

SATURDAY'S POST. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 8 November 1842

SATURDAY'S POST. New Zealand papers of the 30th September, announce the death of Captain William Hob son, R. N., governor of that Colony. His Excellency who had been in ill health for some months, -expired on the 10th September,, at Auckland. Tlie interment took place, ac companied with the most striking demonstra tions of respect and affection. Not a person in the township of Auckland but appeared in the deepest mourning. TheN'.Z. Colonist bears testimony to the kind and urbane course of conduct adopted, in his private life, towards every individual who had the honor of his ac quaintance No man, he says, could be more fitted for the performance of sdteial duties ; a kinder heart never existed ; and whatever ap parent mistakes he may have committed in his official capacity, we cannot withhold our mite to the high admiration which has universally been accorded to his private station. The Mary Hay was laid on for Hobart Town and Launceston. We have received drafts of the Water Acts, a...

WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 8 November 1842

WATER. A ' Detector' would make it appear that we had attempted a fraud upon our readers in selecting the account of the experiment of Van Helmont upon a Willow-tree. We merely stated the circumstance of the experi ment, as it really occurred, and which it will be observed the Editor of the Magazine no where contradicts ; but merely combats the opinion that plants could be nourished by pure water, as held by Van Helmont and others. But as ' Detector' is anxious that the truth, the whole truth should be stated, we give the article from the Penny Magazine for 1841, as preferable even to his selection from it. ' THE USE OF WATER TO VEGETATION.' ' The ancient Eastern philosophers, who re garded water as one of the four elements of which the world was composed, were loud in their praises regarding the wonderful effects thev wit nessed water produce upon the rich soils of Eastern climes. During many succeeding ages it was a common opinion that water alone was able to support vegetation ; ...

' TO THE EDITORS OP TUB COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE.

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. Sheep Shearing. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 8 November 1842

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. Sheep Shearing-. Gentlemen, It appears to be a general custom to sup ply to the sheep-shearers, an allowance of strong drink, during the time of shearing. No practice can be more pernicious, for a variety of evils are onnnpp.tpd with it. In the first place, indulgence creates a thirst for the beverage, and the appetite is frequently only allayed when the intemperate man is left destitute of means to furnish himself with any more of the fiery liquid. The earnings of a season are squattdered in a debauch. And again, when the stimulant has a little excited the workmen — disputes arise among themselves — the work is imperfectly performed, occasioning loss to the employed anil' much suffering to the animal, and moreover the delusion, that intoxicating li quors are nourishing and strengthening is kept up from their being offered as a means or induce ment to renewed exertion ; but when offered as a reward for merit it is stamping them wi...

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 8 November 1842

TO THIS EDITORS OP THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. Gentlemen, — One might be suprisfid at the Examiner's imperious and futile attacks on the Teetotal cause, if it were possible that any impar tial member of the community, could for a moment, lose sight of his well known character. ' The Launceston Examiner' says the Hobart Town Advertiser, has entered the lists too confi dent in his strength to condescend to argument. Bold assertion and a little virtuperation are the weapons he has chosen : he ? , and as he thinks, crushes, not answers us with his own authority.' This, gentlemen, being his character it is no wonder that a number of low-minded, paltry scribblers are encouraged to dabble in this columns. Last week one of these Gents came forward with a degree of self-complacence at the idea of having detected the Teetotallers to . be guilty of error, and falsehood. This Detector reminds me of a. person I knew, who once had a present sent him of a fine large, plump-looking hare. He ...

MEETING OF THE TASMANIAN TEE-TOTAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 8 November 1842

MEETING OF THE TASMANIAN TEE TOTAL SOCIETY. On Tuesday evening, the Infant School Boom was crowded as usual ; the meeting was one of the most gratifying we ever attended, having been conducted with the strictest decorum whilst the evidence produced in favour of the good effects of Teetotalism was most encouraging and con vincing. We noticed amongst the assembly, a great many who have not hitherto honored the meetings by their attendance. The society is evidently exercising an extensive and beneficial influence amongst all classes; we do not despair, that many of tbose who frequent its meetings from mere motives of curiosity, may eventually yield to tbe force of reason, when that curiosity has been gratified. The Chairman, Mr. Sherwin, explained the object of the meeting, and hoped the speakers would not introduce matter foreign to the business ; nevertheless he should be happy to hear any per son -who -wished to oppose their principles by fair argumentation.
