Garden ? Save various seeds at this season, and throughout the summer, as they ripen. It is advisihle, in most cases, to grow enough of one kind in a year, to last for ihree or four years. Put the seeds in bogs, and hang them up inside a house, in a free circulation of air. Hoe, thin, and stir the surface wherever necessary, among nil descriptions of crops. Take up shallots, &., and dry I hem for winter use. Prune, thin, and regulate all the summer shoots or your trees. I his also applies to »ines,— the bunches of choice kinds may be thinned with a pair of Ecissars, and the sun and light allowed to reach them. Continue taking up bulbs as they go out of flower. Eradicate all buds the moment they appear ; jceep the surface always fresh, and rather rough, never smooth and battered. It is better to hate little clods «nd knots of earth, than to have a naked and dug sur face as smooth as a (able. In that state it is more fa vorable Tor the admission of air, heat, and water to the ...

Mr. Sherwin opened the meeting by reading a variety of extracts from English papers, demon strative of the rapid strides which teetotalism was making in the mother country. He also com mented upon the traffic in intoxicating liquors, and the immorality which, in his opinion, those were guilty of, who* pandered to the depraved ap petite of a drunkard, and supplied him with that which they well knew was hastening his destruc tion. Mr. Sherwin stated the gratifying fact, that since the Festival, about 150 members had signed the pledge. Mr. Ballard deposed to the good effects he had experienced from teetotalism ; lie had been en gaged in reaping, sheep-shearing, sawing, and labour of all kinds, and found himself better able to undergo fatigue than when he was a moderate drinker. Mr. Rich spoke principally of temperance in America, and Elated that he knew a neighb...

THE DOCTORS BECOMING WISER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 16 January 1843
THE DOCTORS BECOMING WISER. The following extracts are from an excellent work by the late -eminent Dr. Cheyne, of Dublin, entitled ' A Letter on the Effects of Wi7ies and Spirits, as productivt of Disease,' published in 1829. We indulge the hope that there will vet be a continued increase of wis dom amongst the faculty, and as a conse quence that the use of alcoholic beverages will be increasingly discarded. ' The benefits which have been supposed to flow from their (wiueB and spirits) liberal use in medicine, and especially in those diseases which were once universally, and are still vulgarly, sup posed to depend upon mere weakness, have in vested these agents with attributes to which they have no claim ; and hence as we physicians no longer employ them as we were wont to do, we ought not to rest satisfied with a mere acknow ledgment of error ; but we ought also to make every retribution in our power, for having so long . upheld onc-of the most fatal delusions which ever took posse...
