Gardeh ? If the weather is farorable, sow various seeds to come in during the winter and spring. This course should be regularly adopted, as if the seeds fail the loss is not much— if they succeed, the adrantage will be ereat indeed. Prune, regulate, &c, the summer shoots of all fruit trees as directed last month. .Never cease destroying insects. Uy continuing this course, they will eventually be thinned. Keep your garden clean, and clear off the decayed stalks of various plauts. All rubbish from your garden ought to be collected in a heap and rotted ; it will form by and bye, a valuable compost and manure. The practice of burning cannot be loo strongly reprobated.

POPULAR FALLACIES A CAUSE OF INTEMPERANCE. (CONTINUED.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 20 February 1843

POPULAR FALLACIES A CAUSE OF IN TEMPERANCE. From an Essay on the Nature, Causes, Effects, and Cure of Intemperance, oy Ralph Barnes Orindrod, Surgeon. (continued.) November 26th, 1831, Captain Ross, after sur veying a number of experiments, adopted with a view of preserving the health of the men during their protracted and severe exposure to cold, of from 80° to 80° below the freezing point, says, page 616, ' Yet, if I stilt add the restriction at first in the use of spirits, and at length the final abandonment of this false and pernicious stimulus, I have little doubt that I thus cast off one of the causes, which, if it may not absolutely generate scurvy, materially assists others in the production of that disease.' The writer of a publication of great weight, after narrating the results of a number of attempts to winter in the Arctic Regions, observes: — 'The three principal circumstances which distinguish the fatal attempts from those which succeeded, are, that in the former inst...

TESTIMONIES IN FAVOUR OF TOTAL ABSTINENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 20 February 1843

TESTIMONIES IN FAVOUR OF TOTAL ABSTI NENCE. 'So deep a conviction had he of the universal adaption, as well as of the necessity of the prin ciple of total abstinence from all intoxicating drinks, that if god were pleased to commission the archangel Gabriel on an errand that night, to say, — ' Independant of -the grace of-God' of religion, what do you ask tor your tellow-men I, — lie would, upon his bended knees, that if the almighty would be pleased to grant that from henceforth men should desist from the use of the demon Alcohol, he should be willing to yield up his life that very instant. That was notthe conviction of a moment. So important wastheprinciple of Total Abstinence and so appalling were the proofs of its necessity, that the very stones of London might be expected to move, if Christian ministers, if statesmen, if crowned heads, did not speedily move. He should mourn over his country, as a country that must sooner or later be lost, if such exertions where not promptly mad...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 20 February 1843

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1843. ' Evil habits are io far from graving 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 those who are weary of ' their tyranny endeavour to escape from them, appears by the 11 event to be generally wrong ; they try to loose their chains 11 and to retreat by the same 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 tut those who, by an effort sudden and violent, burst ' their shackles at once, and leave her at a distance.' Da. Sahosl Johnson. It is a highly mistaken notion, but neverthe less a very prevalent one, that teetotallers are opposed to every species of public amusement. It is right therefore for us to expl...

FATHER MATHEW'S RETURN TO IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 20 February 1843

FATHER MATHEW'S RETURN TO IRELAND. On Father Mathew's return to Ireland his re ception from his grateful countrymen exceeded, if possible, what he had just experienced in Scot land. His public entry into Cork took place on the 25th August. The procession on the occa sion was considered to be full two miles long when on the turnpike road. Amongst them were more than forty bands of music, comprising at the least six hundred musical amateurs. In Cork, the windows were filled with spectators, who testified their joy on the occasion by cheering, waving of bats, handkerchiefs, Sec. Triumphal arches were erected in several places, and on crossing the bridge, the entire length of Patrick-street seemed oue dense mass of human beings, through which it would be impossible to proceed. Every window was filled, and many anxious to have a sight of the procession, climbed on the chimneys and the roof of several houses.

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 20 February 1843

TO THB EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. Gentlemen, — Since I sent you my last com munication, I have been forcibly struck with the similarity of manner in which the prophet Habakkuk treats the same subject on which I wrote. His language sets before us in the most terse and comprehensive terms both the evils and the cause of what is called Intemperance : and he is fearless in telling the truth to those' persons who are guilty respecting these things. What volumes may be read in those words t — ' Men's bhod!' — ' the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwelt therein.' And now exactly do we see tiie cause of all this in — ' drink' — ' bottle' — ' drunken also.' But the word ' bottle,' which is here used, needs some explanation in order to shew the full meaning of the Hebrew term in the original. Our sailors know the meaning of the word ? bottle,' With them it is the liquor that maddens and intoxicates : and their meaning is the meaning of the word originally...

SUMMER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 20 February 1843

SUMMER. Now the rosy-fingured Aurora issuing from her saffron house, calls up the moist vapours to sur round her, and goes veiled, with them as long as she can ; till Phcsbus, coming forth in his power looks every thing out of the sky, and holds sharp uninterrupted empire from his throne of beams. Now the reaper begins to make his sweeping cuts with his crooked ecycle more slowly, and resorts oftener to his wine bottle. Now the carter sleeps upon his loaded cart of corn, or winks his eves under his straw ' hat. Now the little girl at her grandmother's door watches the different kinds of veicles as they pass, with her hand held up over her sunny forehead. Nom the traveller calls for his glass whilst his horse drinks out of the trough. Now cattle stand in water and ducks are envied. Now boots and shoes and wattle trees by the road side are full of dust. Now a fellow who finds he has three miles further to go in a pair of light shoes, is in a pretty situation. Now rooms with the sun up...

FALLACY OF THE ARGUMENTS IN FAVOUR OF STRONG DRINKS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 20 February 1843

FALLACY OF THE ARGUMENTS IN FAVOUR OF STRONG DRINKS. It is curious to remark Iiojf people change their tone. Some time ago every one agued for the amount of nutriment in beer and wine ; but che mistry has been consulted, and has shown that it is a misnomer to call the small portion of filthy stuff found in a bottle of wine, or a gallon of beer, nourishment. Well, that idea is no sooner aban doned, but a new subterfuge is found. Every one is ill I and ladies and gentlemen take these drinks medicinally 1 But here again, they are rather unlucky ; for while every one drinks this physic, no one is cured, but rat/ier grows worse! why not, then, change the medicine? Surely no one would take rhubarb, or gentian, or salts, for months together, if they found that, instead of being cured, they increased their maladies. We must soon then abandon the medical argument. The doctors will soon, for their own credit, give up this prescription, because the people ere loug will be too wise to employ me...
