GREAT TEETOTAL DEMONSTRATION ON GLASGOW GREEN. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 9 January 1843

GREAT TEETOTAL DEMONSTRATION ON GLASGOW GREEN. W It having been determined by the friends of teetotalism in Glasgow and neighbourhood : to walk in procession, and hold a great outdoor'de monstration on the occasion of the first visit of Father Mathew to the land of the mountain and the flood, these displays took place on Tuesday and they certainly were both nighly creditable and extremely satisfactory to the laree anrl r«. pectable body of whose views and principles this extraordinary man is at once the ornament and the head. We think that upon this occasion we speak the sentiments of every unprejudiced spec tator when we say that a more peaceful, moral and pleasing exhibition than was afforded by the'pro cession of the teetotallers through the principal street*, it has rarely been our happiness to witness The neat, clean, and orderly appearance of the men composingthe procession,— their blytlielooks and gay adornments,— the air of manly dlgnitv and honest self-complaceucy which' ma...

SUPREME COURT. CIVIL SITTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 9 January 1843

SUPREME COURT. Civil Sittings. Before His Honor Sir John Lewes Pedder, Knight, Chief Justice, and a Special Jury of twelve. Friday, January 6th. The Court opened this day for the trial of Special Jury cases ; there was only one trial for hearing, that of Pugh v. Haygarth. This was an action for malicious prosecution ; damages laid at £1000.

TEETOTAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 9 January 1843

TEETOTAL SOCIETY. A meeting of the above Society was held last Thursday at Evandale, in a barn belong ing to A. T. Collett, Esq., for the purpose of establishing a Society in that district, Isaac Sherwin, Esq., in the chair. The chairman opened the meeting by as suring the labouring: men before him. that in coming out to advocate the cause of Total Abstinence, he was not going to deprive them of their comforts. He then went on to show the evils and mischief which followed the use of these liquors, and the blessings which invariably attended the adoption of the prin ciples of the Society. Mr. Gillum next addressed the meeting, and said, that, as a labouring man he was able to do his work better without the use of these liquors, than when he formerly indulged in them. He stated also, that since he had be come a Teetotaller, he had increased in weight and appealed to those present, whether as far as appearance went, they thought him a bad sample of Teetotalism. The speaker then gave a ...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER and TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 9 January 1843

THE LAUrJCESTON SOliiNEB TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 1843. ' Evil habits are so far from growing weaker from repeated ?? attempts to overcome tuem, that If they are not totally sub ' dued every struggle Increases their strength ; and a habit ' opposed and victorious, is more than twice as strong as before ' tic contest. The manner In which those who arc weary or ' tuelr tyranny endeavour to escape from them, appears by the ?? event to be generally wrong j they try to loose their chains, ?' and to retreat J-y the same degrees as they advanced, but ' before the deliverance can be completed, habit is sure to 11 throw new chains upon her fugitive. Nor can any hope to ' escape but those who, by an effort sudden and violent, burst ' their shackles at once, and leave her at a distance.' Dn. Samuel Johnbon. It is almost impossible to take up any news paper, published in England, Ireland, or Scotland, without finding some mention of Tcetotalism. The rapid progress which it is makin...

FROM JOHN OSBORN, OF ST. MARY, NEWINGTON, TO GEORGE OSBORN, OF STOKE NEWINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 9 January 1843

FROM JOHN OSBORN, OP ST. MARY, KEWIXGTON, TO GEORGE OSBORN, OF STOKE NEWINGTON. Brother George,— Allow me to use this fa miliar title, for though not yet a Reverend in the ordinary acceptation of the term, like yourself; yet occasionally I endeavour to imitate Him who went about doing good. Having myself fallen into the net of these ' Totalists,' and having read sundry works in tneir lavor, ana among tUe rest Shrewsbury's Lecture, I felt somewiiat desirous to hear the other side, and rather the more so as upon en- ? quiring of a Wesleyan steward as to your cha racter, he said, rather significantly, ' Oh, he's one of your young preachers ;' and of Shrewsbury, he said, ' he's a beloved man.' The said steward not being a ' Totalist,' I took it for granted what he said was true, aud was increasingly anxious to read what ' the young preacher' had to say to the ' beloved man ;' and also your being a name sake of mine, and per chance a very distant rela on, combined to accelerate the grati...

1.—NATIONAL INBUSTRY AND WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 9 January 1843

I- — NATIONAL INDUSTRY AND WEALTH. Intemperance has ever been ruinous in its con sequences to national industry. On careful in vestigation, it will be found that national idleness and poverty harts been the uniform concomitants of free indulgence in the use of intoxicating li quors, ihe injurious effects of intemperance on industry were found by the late Parliamentary in vestigation to be ' extinction of disposition for practising any useful art or industrious occupa tion.' Such indeed will be found to be the uni versal tendency of this vice. Those who indulge m strong drink, have little inclination, or evpn capacity for improvement. Selfishness and apathy predominate in the character of the drunkard, and feelings of amendment, however frequently they may arise, are quickly dissipated in the love of sensual gratification. Loss of time is another lamentable result of in dulgence iu intoxicating liquors. It is impossible to estimate the amount and value of this loss. Time is the means...
