TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 30 January 1843
TO THE BD^TOES ro&^THE ^- COURIER AND TEETOTAL' AbyoCAfE « Accordingly, bavin); refreshed ills '(Julius Csiafrt men, previous to their setting out, lie led them once more a long and fatiguing' march across the AIdi through the extensive provinces of Gaul, to m»t .ui enemy in Spain. Indeed when I consider the amaiine length of tbe nay, and the various countries his soE diers were to pass, the mountains they had to ascend and the forests to cut through, the various climates they were to endure, and the military duties they were to undergo— while every sentinel wore seventy pounds weight of armour, that would be considered as a mo' dern man's load— while, besides this, each man wji obliged to carry with him ten days, provision upon the point of his spear, and was allowed nothing to drink but vinegar and water on the way ; when 1 con sider, 1 say, the fatigues these must have undergone' and the length of their continuance, I am struck with astonishment at their invincible patien...
IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 30 January 1843
IRELAND. Birmingham, 8th month, (August) 23rd 1842. Respected Friends, You rightly judge that with reference to the temperance question my thoughts turn with plea sure to the present state of Ireland, once such a theatre of disorder, now sc- peaceful. I have lately, visited the south-western part of that island under circumstances every way fa vourable for ascertaining the actual results oftee totalism, and I must confess that the effects pro duced by the mighty reformation, so often report ed to have accompanied the very extensive adop tion .of the practice of total abstinence, have per fectly astonished ine. I am one of those who have sincerely rejoiced at the progress of temperance both there and everywhere else, and am free to acknowledge that previous to my jouiney thither, I never could fully realize to my mind but that the statements received from Ireland were in some measure ex aggerated. So far, however, from this being the case, 1 am not only prepared to assent to these re...

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 30 January 1843
TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE, Gentlemen, — In your number of January I6th, I see an article headed ' your society is very good for the drunkard.' This I have no doubt is generally acknowledged, .and I .cannot see how this association should tie .any hinderance to many respectable and worthy individuals from joining your ranks. If you sign the pledge (they say) people will suppose you have been drunkards. Let them suppose what they think proper, in thinking so, it -will also convince the public flint you have been able to conquer the demoralising habit : that you are firm of purpose, and that your mind is properly fortified. But who it can be that | makes this assertion, it is difficult to determine. They must have only viewed the principles of the society on the surface, to come to any such conclusion, for even in its present state, its good j effects to all classes of the community are visible to the most casual observer. I enter in to the views of the writer...

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 6 February 1843
TO THE EDITORS OP THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. Gentlemen, — In looking over an English periodical, I mnt with the following paragraph, headed with — ' Very like an Anti-Teetotaller.' 'It is related of Galileo, who invented the tele scope witb which he observed the satelites of Ju piter, that he invited a man who was opposed to him, to look through h that he might observe Jupiter's moons. The man positively refused, saying, ' if' I should see them, bow could I main tain the opinions which 1 bave advanced against your philosophy V This is the case with many. They will not look at the truth. They will not hear it, for fear that the arguments which they have framed will be destroyed, and they may be obliged to give up their vicious indulgences.' To which of your readers Gentlemen, this may apply, I leave them each to judge for themselves. But Galileo met with more unreasonable treatment than this. He was apprehended by the Inquisitors, and kiken before the judges, where he was com...

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 6 February 1843
TO THE KDITOnS OF THK COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. Gentlemen,— On ray way home from even ing worship on sabbath last, I saw in the street one of those melancholy spectacles, which are calculated to arouse our sympathies — a drunken woman between two constables on their way to the watch-house. It bad indeed this effect upon my mind, and my thoughts immediately fixed upon your philanthropic efforts to stay tbe progress of those humiliating occurrences. Aud seeing tbe street thronged with persons, who like myself had been closing tbe sabbath in sweet comiuuuion witb each other at the house of prayer, an invol untary ejaculation escaped my lips, and these men have religious opponents, knowing its truth my mind was perplexed to find out any reasonable objection the Christian could have to the propaga tion of your principles, and tbe more I study tbe subject, tbe more I am at a loss to answer the question. Even was this scene a solitary instance of tbe misery produced by using inebriati...
