TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 21 November 1842

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. Gentlemen, — As you so politely gave inser tion to my few remarks on the custom of giving intoxicating liquor at sheep-shearing, I venture to intrude upon you with some further observa tions uoon the same custom at harvesting:. The impression has been so general, that sti mulants were necessary to endure continued and great exertions, the custom seemed imperative : but happily light has broken in upon us, ana many that lamented the use of strong drink on such occasions led to such excesses iu the abuse thereof) are now convinced that great and pro tracted labour can be better performed without the use of intoxicating liquors than with them, and extensive crops, even in this colony, have been reaped on the 'total abstinence principle — and, for many reasons, it would be very desirable if the use of spirits, wines, and beer, was alto gether abandoned. Some I stated in my last — the baneful influence upon the men — their reck lessnes...

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. Gentlemen, Although advocating the principles of Total Abstinence, I feel convinced that it is not your intention to mislead the colonists, either in the price of grain, the price of meat, or any other colonial produce. The Examiner of the 16th instant states, that the price of wheat at Sydney is, from 7s. Od. to 9s. per bushel. The Laun ceston Advertiser of the 17th instant, aiiotes r.lm Sydney markets— wheat 7s. to 7s. 6d., per bushel. Now, if you will set the matter right by giving the true state of the Sydney market, myself and many' more will be greatly obliged. Your's &c. A Wheat Grower. [If our correspondent will take the trouble to look at the dale on which1 the Examiner makes his quotations, he will find it to be October 4th, that, of the Launceston Advertiser November 7th, as the date of one is more than a month subse quent to the date of the other, a moment's reflec tion ought to convince ' a wheat grower,' whic...

TO THE EDITORS OP THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. ' Tlie greatest good to tlie greatest number.' Gentlemen, — An Anti-teetotaller in last weeks' Chronicle, iusists upon it that he, and not we, hold that doctrine — Let him LOOK ON THIS PICTURE! Whisky. ' It is the life blood of the gambler— the proof of the highwayman ; it countenances the liar — respects the thief — esteems the blasphemer — and honours infamy ; it hates love — scorns virtue — and slanders innocence ; it burns up men — con- sumes women — curses God — and despises Heaven' Seven men got employment about a distillery and malt house, producing 600 gallons of whisky per week, which at 12s. per gallon, the retail price, costs (.he consumer or the the country, £360 ; and allowing the seven men 18s. per week, then the sum expended upon wages, while producing £360 worth of whisky, is only the miserable pittance of six guineas, or about four pence in the pound sterling. Seven men are therefore employed in producing £360 wor...

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 28 November 1842

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. Gentlemen, — ' The greatest good to the greatest number' is professedly, the object of lte ibrmerfl; and although the Teetotal principals embrace this proposition, to the very letter, yet a writer in the Cornwall Chronicle, himself professing to be a reformer, signs himself ' Anti Teetotalism,' and endeavours to persuade people to think that it is both ' meau and disregardful of social duties to advocate teetotal principles.' No stronger evidence than such inconsistency could well be required to show the ignorance that blinds those,- who, through laudable motives, op-: pose the spread of ' Tcetotalism ; for the Chroni cles, that record the struggles made by the people, to improve their condition in society, during the last fi ty years in Great Britain, are' incontestable proofs in support of teetotalism. Those struggles were, in a great measure, productive of riot, the open opposition of the authorities, and. the shed-, ding of bl...
