MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 19 December 1842
MARKETS. It is a matter of regret that we have no market in this town. A 'weekly market ? would not only add to the comfort of the inhabitants — from the supply of fruits, poultry, vegetables, &c., it would insure, but would greatly promote the interests of flip Rmnll finit.Ip.r. wiifl wnllfii lliivfi fin minnrhinitv of vending the produce of his dairy, poultry-yards piggery,&:c. to the consumer — getting thelnghes, price for his .commodities. Whereas, now if he it desirous of making sale of such articles, his on'y, resource is, to. dispose of them to the salesman, whose profit .is scarcely lessithan the amount re ceived by the producer, jot otherwise hawk them from door to door? with uncertain success, and which latter, mode is, .mean, derogatory, and very objectionable, ? ? ? But a market should 4be held in a- central and convenient, situation. If a. market is too remote from the generality, of the inhabitants, its advan tages are nullified; .it, never. will .becom...

TAMAR REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 19 December 1842
TAMAR REGATTA. It a^aiti becomes our pleasing duty to acquaint our readers who may not have been so fortuuate as to he present, that our annual regatta com menced un Friday, the 16th, and, although from I the heavy appearance of the morning, anticipations j of a braeee for the yachts were rather low, yet a ; very respectable attendance was made on the ground, wliicli towards ten o'clock began to as sume an enlivening aspect. A light variable wind induced the committee to start the pulling gigs first — five of which were entered, and the excite ment was exceedingly great on account of two new boats, one the Leandtr built by Green, the builder of the favorite ' Red Rover,1' and tlie other ' La Belle,' built by amateurs, after some little delay caused by the Leandcr endeavouring to place herself eight or ten feet in advance, which we were most happy to see, Captain Bate man rectifying, the gun was fired, and off they went; the lied Sover and La 'Belle taking the lead in splendid style....
TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 19 December 1842
TO THE ETJITORS OF THK COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. Gentlemen, — When the tables are turned upon the Examiner, he seems to be as tame as a wolf caught in a trap. How sJiecp-li/t£ he wants to appear in his Wednesday's number I But if we make a comparison of his past columns with ' Truth,' how forcibly are the lineaments of the hypocrite and the wolf to be seen ! Numbers of ins an^es now crowd upon my mind in which he has attempted to impose upon the public, and to tear the character of honorable and upright men ; but Gentlemen, my patience is not suffi ciently expmplary to wade through the mass, 1 shall therefore simply refer to some of his late m.ves. He calls the attention of the committee of ihe Teetotal Society to the state of the corres p-::dence in the Advocate; but when he was re inihde 1 of the hypocritical cant, and the defama tion of ministerial character which he published in ' Q. Q.'s' letters — and of the calumnious lies wlrchhe also published in those of Philunthrojii...
ADULTERATION OF INTOXICATING LIQUORS. ADULTERATIONS OF ARDENT SPRITS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 19 December 1842
AOTlf ERA? rotf OF fi^XICATING LIQUORS. . ADDLTErtATfONS OF ARDENT SPIRITS. The adulteration of ardent spirits is, if possible, more extensive than tliat of either wine or malt liquors,. To detail the various .processes in com mon use for this purpose, would, fill a moderate sized volume. A few examples will, however, be lfliri lipfnrA i.lia rnfliipr frnm aniimoa annnllv au thentic with those which hare already been made use of. The extraordinary value attached to well frequented spirit establishments, is strong evi dence of the importance of .the traffic. A popu lar writer observes, that he has no doubt it will excite much surprise, when he states the fact, (well know to all persons connected with the trade,) that sums, of from one thousand to three thousand pounds,- ana,- where wine trades have been attached, as much as from three to six thousand pounds, have been given for the good wills of gin shops, possessed, of only twenty-one years leases, depending solely on the will of the...

PARRAMATTA. We have, seldom ever heard of a more' painful and heart-rending occurrence than the one we are about to relate, 'which took place in this town on Tuesday, the 22d instant, and is a convincing proof of the melancholy effects of administring a ' small drcm.' ns.it is tprrrip.11. in rriilrli-nn '?t.lio **L' suit of which has been, in tins instance, the loss ! of a fine healthy boy, only five years bid,, who be- . came so habituated to that accursed poison, that at length he took a 'large drop,' which caused the termination of his 'existence. .. We consider we cannot offer a stronger warning to parents than by furnishing an outline of the -evidence taken at the inquest.

LONGFORD BRANCH TEETOTAL SOCIETY. The second meeting of this society was held in Mr. R. Hazlewood's Barn, on Wednesday even ing last. Tbe chair was taken by Mr. M. Lassetter. Tbe meeting was well attended ; many appear to be taking great interest in tbe cause, so that we have no doubt tbe society will progress rapidly, and ultimately be productive of much lasting good to tbe district. Tbe speakers, Messrs.William Smith, Richards, Smith, Mason, Silcock, and Stublis, were listened too with much attention, their simple straight for ward appeals appeared deeply to interest the meet ing. At the conclusion sixteen persons took the pledge. ,, , After the meeting, our attention was called to rather a warm altercation at the further end of the barn, between a teetotaller and. a publican. From what we could-iiodersland, both parties had been engaged in the traffic. We were not a little gra'tified to hear from the lips of the Long ford publican, that one of their number had re linquished the b...
