Nor can any hope to ' etcape but thoie who, by an effort sudden and violent, bunt ' their thacklei at once, and leave her at a diitance.' Dr. Samuel Johnson.

We can here give you hut a part of his pitable story, with a piciure of the closing- scene. The lending facts were given by himself or his wife and are known to he strictly* true. HIS itARLY HISTORY. He was a young man of superior native talent, and was atone time a public lectureron chemistry. He was also gifted with a peculiarly lovely dispo sition, attractive social qualities and pleasant pow ers of conversation. He had many friends and iearty married a lovely woman. But he fell be fore the great destroyer, and by social drinking became nil run karil. His habits were followed by the inevitable con seqences, — gradual loss of bnsi...

THE LIQUOR MERCHANT AND HIS VICTIM. (Concluded from our last.) THIRD FALL. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 21 November 1842

THE LIQUOR MERCHANT AND HIS VICTIM. C Concluded from our last. J THIRD FALL.. The tempter went out, and soon returned with some liquor. ? With a tact worthy of an older fiend he placed the cup where he could not avoid the sight and smell. ' There, I dont believe you dare touch that glass. I'll take a sip. I can take care of mvself and make mv wife keen her own place.' The sellar began to drink. His victim looked ; he could not avoid the smell. The sellar ridiculed him : — taunted him : — defied him. The poor man thought he would taste to get rid of his tormentor, or to show bis power of self-control. But the sequel to that single taste may easily be imagined. He spent the rest of the day in the grog-shop and went home in the evening drunk. With this relapse, despair seemed to take posses sion of him. Yet occasional}', his better feelings would gain the mastery. 'Emma.' said he one evening. ' I shall soon kill myself in this course. I can not endure this misery will you, can you, hel...
