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

TO THE EDITORS OF TirK i COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. Gentlemen, — I need make no apology for asking a space in your excellent paper, Cora notice of the long length which the Xamiiier snake dis played in the last number, under the guise of ' No enemy to Tcetotalism. ' It is truly pitiable i to notice the shifts and turns the Xitmincr's men make to supply it with spleen anil lies nbout tee totalism. As this last dastardly and disingenuous article was announced in -a previous number, I was induced to look for it, expectinj»it would be a regular thunderbolt forged by one of the Xam iner's cyclops to dash in pieces the whole fabric of teetotalism, and scatter iu atoms the whole race of tetotallers. But I have been much disappointed in finding it the venom of the hissing serpent, who dares no longer disturb the teetotal meetings, and so has betaken himself to his friend Xamiaer, who assists all such in Calumniating and bespat tering the teetotallers. As this serpent lias coma out of hi...

ADULTERATION OF INTOXICATING LIQUORS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 28 November 1842

ADULTERATION OF INTOXICATING LIQUORS. {Adulterations of Malt Liquors.) Malt liquors, in the present day, are almost universally adulterated. The annals of the Court of Excise bear evidence of the nature, and extent of this illegal practice. In a work of considerable merit, recently published, the various adultera tions used in the preparation of malt liquors, are detailed at some length. In reference to London Porter, the writer expresses his unqualified opinion, that its nutritious qualities are greatly overrated. He then proceeds to allude to the various methods employed to adulterate this popular beverage, in allusion to which practice, he thus remarks : ? ' I disclaim any intention to particularize establish ments that use these ingredients, it would be use less to do so, because each of tlie'm practise it, in proportion to the extent of its business.' The author of a popular treatise on brewing, after enumerating several maetrials used in the preparation of porter, such as cocc...

to the erroneous impression that the St. Joseph's was opposed to the Tasmania!! Society-; this was not the case, and it was felt tbat there could not poBSi'bly be too many societies. When the coun try districts knew there were two societies in Launceston, surely they would think it time to have at least one 1 Mr. Sherwin and Mr. Cotham had some con versation respecting the form of the pledge. The St. Joseph's society have adopted father Mathew's pledge, which can be taken for a limited or un limited period as the party pleases. It also does not restrict a person from offering intoxicating drinks to others, hut merely to abstain personally, and discourage the vice of intemperance. Mr. J.W. Bell expressed his approval of Father Mathew's pledge, in preference to the other. People might be placed in situations where it would be impossible to refuse offering wine or spirits without a great personal sacrifice, that no principle could justify. For instance, lie could not adopt the Tasmania...

THE TEMPERANCE HALL. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 28 November 1842

THE TEMPERANCE HALL. The Petition has already been numerously signed, and will shortly be forwarded to His Excellency. We feel 'so confident that Sir John Franklin will respond favorably to the application, that it would be a work ot need less supererogation to waste words in urging it upon his consideration. It is impossible that His Excellency should be insensible to the ad vantages accruing to the community from the exertions of Teetotallers, and it would be an unjust disparagement upon His Excellency's moral principle, to suppose him capable of re fusing a compliance with the request, urged, in the name of reason, religion, benevolence, charity, patriotism, and justice. It cannot but be matter of regret, that medical men should (as appears to us) so thoughtlessly prescribe the use of intoxicating drinks to their patients. We cannot but think that, nine cases out of ten, some substitute could have been found less objectionable, and equally useful ; and, in such case, it is only u...

THE TWO PLEDGES. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 28 November 1842

THE TWO PLEDGES. Two Teetotal Societies are now firmly esta blished in Launceston, which, though unani mous in their object, differ slightly in the means adopted for its accomplishment. It is exceedingly desirous that the distinction should be clearly understood, to prevent the circula tion of an opinion, already too prevalent, that they are in some i especlsopposed to each other. Once for all, we announce, that the Tasmanian and St.. Joseph's Society, are upon terms of the greatest harmony, and that whatever dif ference may exist between the forms they re spectively adopt, their end, their objects, and their motives are precisely the same. The Tasmanian pledge is of the more strin gent character. It not only prohibits the use of all fermented liquors, but likewise for bids the offering of them to others, except as medicines, or for religious purposes. With these exceptions, a Tasmanian teetotaller must nei ther taste, sell, give, or offer intoxicating liquors of any description, ev...

Wevmouth-street, when not much less than one hundred persons were present. After tea the room was thrown open for a public meeting, which was soon filled and numbers re mained outside, not being able to gain admittance. Mr. RHley on taking the chair, stated the objects which the' society had in view, the primary aim was the recovery of the drunkard and the pre vention of intemperance. He directed the at tention of his audience with peculiar pathos, to the vnnny promising youths of both sexes, who hnve fallen victims to this vice. That the evils which liquor produced were every where to be found, that there was scarcely a family or an in dividual who had nut felt, either in themselves, friends, or circumstances, their prejudicial influ ence.
