Garden ? If the weather is favorable, sow various seeds to come in during llie winter and spring. This course should be regularly adopted, as if lhe seeds fail the loss is nul much— if they succeed, the advantage will be great indeed. 1'rune, regulate, &c, the summer chnnicf-rni] fruit trpes as directed last month. Never cease destroying insects. By continuing this course, they will cteniually be thinned. Keep your garden clean, and clear off lhe decayed stalks of various plants. All rubbish from your garden ought to be collected in a heap and rolled ; it will form by and bye, a valuable compost and manure. This practice of burning cannot be loo strongly reprobated.

THE -UUNCESTOM COURIER TEETOTAL* ADVOCATE. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1843. ' Evil habits are so far from crowing weaker from repeated ' attempts to overcome them, 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 ' the contest. The manner in which tbose who are weary of *' their tyranny endeavour to eicape from them, appears by the ' event to be generally wrong ; they try to loose their chains « and 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 can any hope to ' escape but those who, by an effort sudden and violent, burst ' thelr'shackles at once, and leave her at a distance.' ' Dr. Samdel Johnson.

TASMANIAN TEETOTAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 13 February 1843

TASMANIAN TEETOTAL SOCIETY. On Tuesday evening, the Tasmanian Teetotal Society held 'their usual meeting at the Iufant School-room. Mr. Shenvin read several extracts from the Sydney Teetotaller, and directed attention to the prosperity of the Benefit Society, though of only two years standing they had nearly £400 in hand; not a single death had' occurred out of two hund red and thirty members, and there had only been one sick person on the books, and he only for a week. These facts spoke loudly in favour of tee totalism. He augured from them the success of their own benefit society, and urged all labouring men in particular to become members. Mr. Sherwin also announced that a library had been established ; there were many persons in the so ciety for whom it was their duty to provide some means of rational and profitable amusement, which was always to be tound in a library. It would he open from ten in the morning till ten at night; the subscription ten shillings per annum. They had ...

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. SOME PASSAGES IN THE LIFE OF A POOR SOLDIER. ( Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 13 February 1843

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. SOME PA6SAGES IN THE LIFE OF A POOR SOLDIER. ( Continued from our last. ) After my arrival in England I was inarched to Chatham, I suffered severely while sojourning there with the ague, the effects of my late cam paign, and many of my poor companions expired from the force of the disease. After this, our re giment took up their quarters at Westminster, recruiting having filled up the ranks so lately thinned by war and sickness, we now mustered three battalions of 1,000 men each. While at Knightsbridge barracks I could not but observe the effect of dissipation upon many of my com rades. When enlisted they bore the appearance of sober young men, totally unused to excess in intoxicating drinks ; but the effect of example soon led them to adopt the habits of other soldiers, and drunkenness prevailed to an awful extent among the regiment. Many were flogged, and more confined, but without success ; for as many of our corps were quarter...

SUPREME COURT HOBART TOWN. SITTINGS IN RANCO. Tuesday Feb. 7th 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 13 February 1843

SUPREME COURT HOBART TOWN, SITTINGS IN BANCO, Tuesday Feb. 7th 1843. To-day being the first sitting day of ? the first Term, the Bar was attended by almost every bar rister and solicitor in town amongst whom we observed Mr. Cartwright, the father of our Colo nial Bar. The Attorney General, in the case of Tetley v. Sherwin, moved for an order to stay execution, to enable the defendant to appeal to the Privy Coun cil; an application for appeal had been' already made to the Court, under the charter of the colo ny ; but their Honors did not consider that this particular case came within the charter, nor that amount was sufficiently exact, the charter requiring it to be £l,Oi)O. The present motion, however, was independent of the charter, and was shaped under a common law right, and when a party felt aggrieved, he might appeal to the Privy Council. The learned counsel would not waste the time of the Court in arguing this point ; but he contended that every subject has a right of appeal, ...

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 13 February 1843

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. Gentlemen, — I have had a task imposed upon me by a friend to the total abstinence cause. There is no doubt but his intention, like that of the lady to whop Cowper's ' Task' and its origin, is good, but it is a painful task to me. It is to write uDon the evils of intemverance. Cowner in his ' Task' took some notice of those evils, but as there was no remedy discovered in his day, he dismissed the subject with a pointed reflection on the Excise and Revenue of our country. Now, however, a true and efficient remedy has been found ; and it is our duty to apply that remedy, and to give the subject no rest until a complete and lasting reformation has taken place. The evils of intemperance, which in former years in our father-land I have tried to explore have made my heart to bleed, and have filled my mind with a feeling of concern and horror which was almost too much for me to bear. And iu conse quence I have latterly sought to divest m...

TEETOTALISM IN THE ARMY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 13 February 1843

TEETOTALISM IN THE ARMY. 'The following paragraph, being an'exira»t from Atkinso?i's Expedition into Affylwnistan has lately been extensively circulated through the public press : — ' Effect of Teetotalism on Sabre Wou?ids.~ Only thirty-eight wound cases were received into one held hospital (at lihuznee) ; happily, the gun shot wounds, the most dangerous, were few. All the sword cuts, which were very numerous, anil many of them very deep, united m the most satis, factory manner, which we decidedly attributed to the men having been' without rum for the previous six weeks, the commissariat having none to giv* them. In consequence, there was no inflamma tory action to produce fever, and interrupt the adhesion- of the parts— a strong argument in favor of teetotalism.' - - t ' We shall rejoice if the knowledge of this fact, with others that have recently taken place,.should cause an enquiry to be instituted into the practice of allowing intoxicating drinks to our soldiers.

It will require the united efforts and support of a great number of our in dependent and wealthy settlers to carry out this resolu tion. The foreigner having once gained a fooling, will not so easily be driven from the market as some people imagine— the first, second, or third loss will not deter the Spaniard or American from an enterprise which has hitherto proved so profitable.
