THE VERY REV THEOBALD MATTHEW. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 28 November 1842
THE VERY REV. THEOBALD MATTHEW. The following address from the teetotallers of Liverpool was presented to the Apostle of Tem perance, at Lucau, on Sunday : — ' Very Rev. Dear Sir, — We, the members of the Liverpool Branch of the Cork J otul Abstinence Society, hail with heartfelt pleasure this opportu nity of paying to you, our beloved president, this humble but sincere tribute of affection, and of stating the pride, the gratification, the delight we feel in witnessing, through your almost super human exertions, a fallen nation restored to its former high moral standing1, and also some of the remotest kingdoms of the earth sending blessings to you across the mighty ocean for your bursting asunder the adamantine bonds of soul-destroying alcohol, and exhibiting the odious demon in all its naked and hideous deformity. Since your reverence honoured us by becoming our president, and that the Very Rev. Henry Brewer, our excellent and beloved pastor, accepted our vice-presidency, a period ...

SUPREME COURT— HOBART TOWN. Tuesday, Km. 15. IN RK TtTI.EY V. SIIFRH'IN. The A Homey- General applied to have (he conditional rule obtained by him in (his ease, on Tuesday week, made absolute. The Chief Justice having read over his notes of tlie trial observed that if Sheruin had been the atrent of Tedey, the plaintiff would be entitled, at least, to a re medy against him ; but. of this there was no tittle of evidence, in (net, it went the other way. Then, what was the value c.f the contract ? Upon the payment of a certain sum of money, the company were bound to pay the plain I iff' a specified sum, but there could be no con tract, if (here was do previous payment of the policy ; so that Tetlcy had no right to the' policy, until he had paid the premium. Upon this ground a verdict ought to be for the defendant, while it would be for the plain lift' on the conversion, subject to a point reserved.

NATIONAL DISTRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 5 December 1842
NATIONAL DISTRESS. We find that the attention of the people at home, is being directed to the efficacy of teetotalism as a prevention of national distress. This is a most important consideration, and in our opinion, is better calculated to improve the condition of society than the best attempts of human legislation. When it is reflected how great and widely extended are the evils arising from intoxication, it will be perceived at a glance, that in a national point of view, the major part of the poverty and distress is attributable directly or indirectly to that source. At a meeting held 'in Scotland — not a meeting of teetotallers, but of the public generally — the following resolutions were adopted which contain very powerful arguments in favour of teetotalism. 1st. — ' That the distress and privation so fear fully prevailing1 amongst the industrious portion of our population, demand the prompt and energetic interference of every Christian Phi lanthropist, in endeavouring by every ...

It is impossible to tell how many would have been pre sent, had the room been sufficiently capacious, but it is ndtexagge-ratm^tO'say, that at least a hundred muBt have been disappointed in not having been able to obtain admissioiui The want of a Temperance Ball was never mori seriously felt, indeed the so ciety is now creating such ah excitement that we must have a more commodious place of meeting. The chairman, iaac Sherwin, Esq., stated lie had so often addre led such meetings that he felt at; loss to say mon than he had done respecting the principles of teiotalism, aud he would prefer reading'...
