THE LAUNCESTON COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. MONDAY, JANUARY 16, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 16 January 1843
THE LAUNCESTON COURIER TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. MONDAY, JANUARY 16, 1841. ' Evil hatiu are to far from growing weaker from repeated *? attempt! to overcome them, that if thry arc not totally sub ' ducd every struggle increases their strength ; and a habit ' opposed and victorious, is more than twice as strong as before ' the contest. The manner in which those who are weary of ?' their tyranny endeavour to escapo from them, appears by tho ' event to be generally wrong ; they try to loose their chains, ' ana to retreat by the tame degrees as they advanced, but ' before the deliverance can be completed, habit is sure to ' throw new chains upon her fugitive. Nor c.in any hope to ' escape out thouc who, bv an effort sudden and violent, burst ' their ihacklcs at once, and leave her at a distance.' Du. Samcil Johnson. ' Your Society is very good fur the drunkard.'' Tins is said by some of the opponents of Teetotalism, and we doubt not with the view of hindering many respectable and worthy in div...
SUPREME COURT. CRIMINAL SITTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 16 January 1843
SUPREME COURT. CRIMINAL SITTINGS. Before His Honor Sir John Lewis Pedder Knight, and the following jury :— William Flet- cher, James Raven, William Bransgrove, Josias M'Allan, William Milne, James Stewart, Charles Best, R. L. Orr, John Young, James Hall, James Walbourn, William Longhurst. Saturday, January 7th. William Valentine was indicted for the man- slaughter of the late Theophilus Swifte, Esq., by having negligently, carelessly, and feloniously, administered to him a large quantity of laudanum, in the stead of some other medicine. The decla- ration contained two counts, similar in substance. Mr. Macdowell appeared for the defence. The Attorney- General stated the case to the jury. It was his painful duty to call their attention to the cir- cumstances which placed the highly respectable gentle- man now before them in the lamentable position of a prisoner at the bar. Although it was his duty to act as prosecutor, he regretted to hear that numerous witnesses were in attendance fr...

TEETOTAL HARVEST MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 23 January 1843
TEETOTAL HA11VEST MEN. We perceive by English papers just received, that Teetotallers are preferred as harvest men by nearly all the farmers in the United King dom. Most of the provincial papers speak very highly of Teetotallers, and recommend them to the notice of those tarmers who wish to get in their grain at a small cost, little trouble, and a great deal of peace and quiet ness. The Essex Herald, in support of the cause of total abstinence reports the following result of an experiment tried by one of Sir T. B. Lennard's tenants : — ' At Aveley, a, most respectable tenant of Sir T. B. Lennard, imported two total abstinence men from Dunstable, to assist the others in getting in the harvest ; coffee was their principal beverage, but they performed their full share of the work with the other men, and were extremely orderly and well behaved, though they were much jeered by their fellow-workmen ; indeed, when they first arrived they experienced some difficulty in getting lodgings, owi...

Gaudek. — Save various seeds at this season, and throughout the summer, as they ripen. Jt isadvisible, in most cases, to grow enough of one kind in a year, to last for three or four years, l'ut the seeds in bags, and hang them up inside a house, in a free circulation or air. Hoe, thin, and stir the surface wherever necessary, among all descriptions of crops. Take up shallots, &., and dry them for winter use. Prune, thin, and regulate nil the summer shoots of your trees. This also applies to tines,— the bunches of choice kinds may be thinned with a pair of scissars, 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; keep the surface always fresh, and rather rough, never smooth and battered. It is better to hate little clods and knots of earth, than to have a naked and dug sur face as smooth as a table. In that state it is more fa vorable for the admission of air, heat, and water to the roo...

THE VOYAGE OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 23 January 1843
THE VOYAGE OF LIFE, From the ' Rambler,' by Dr. Johnson. In the midst of the current of life was the gnlf of Intemperance, a dreadful whirlpool, intersper sed with rocks, of which the pointed crags were concealed under water, and the tops covered with herbage, on which Ease spread couches of repose, and with shades, where Pleasure warbled the song of invitation. Within sight of these rocks all who sailed on the ocean of life must necessarily pass. Reason, indeed, was always at hand to steer the passengers through a narrow outlet by which they might escape ; but very few could, by herin treaties or remonstrances, be induced to put the rudder into her hand, without stipulating that she should approach so near uuto the rocks of Plea sure, that they might solace themselves with a short enjoyment of that delicious region, after which they always determined to pursue their course witliout anv other deviation. Reason was too often prevailed upon so far by these promises, as to venture her ...
TEETOTALLERS AT MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 23 January 1843
TEETOTALLERS AT MELBOURNE. A meeting of ibis boily was held on Monday evening last, at the Scots' School. An ample supply of the decoction of Souchong nnd Hyson, with divers agreeable condiments in the shape of cakes ami bread and butter were provided, and at six o'clock a party of about one hundred persons partook of the cup '? which inebriates, but not in toxicates,' uud otherwise refreshed themselves with the gooil things placed before them. At half-past seven, Mr. Wade was called to the chair, who opened the business of the meeting by stat ing that the oliject of the society was to suppress intemperance, and that the means which in theif own case they adopted and recommended to others, was, total abstinence from intoxicating drinks, which was found by experience to be the only ef fectual method of accomplishing the end they had in view. After alluding to the failures of what had been termed ' Temperance Societies,' iu consequence of ardent spirits only being ab jured by them, an...
REV. J. WESLEY'S OPINIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 23 January 1843
REV. J. WESLEY'S OPINIONS. If rules hare any meaning, Methodists are bound to help on the Temperance Society. The preachers of this sect are much abroad ; each one preaches eight or nine times in a week, and in from twelve to twenty different places in a quarter. The influence of their example is therefore exten sive, and ot course their responsibility great. Many of them have promised over and over to adopt the rule of the Temperance Society. If then they are found daily or weekly breaking if, they must sink in public estimation, now that at tention is universally turned to the subject. In deed, the only way left to hold them up is ' ask for (he pood way and walk therein.' Those who confess that spirituous liquors are a deadly poison, snd thftt snuff and tobacco are a needfess self indulgence, should of course totally abstain from them. There is a little book of 84* pages, which, when a candidate for the Methodist Ministry is taken on trial, is put into his hands, as contaning sund...
