Launceston Market. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 27 February 1843

Xiaunceston market. Return of Grain and Flour exported from the Port of Launceslon, during the week ending the 11th Feb ruary 1843, inclusive ? Flour, 31} tons. Wheat, 1815 bushels. Oats, 785 ditto. Flour 6 tons Return of Grain and Flour imported into the Port of Launceston, during the week ending the 1 lth Feb. uary IH43 ? Aii No appearance of a change in the wheat market has taken place, the principal supply now required is for home consumption. Wheat holders are anxiously look ing forward to the government tenders for 30,000 bushels. News from the colonies in relation to corn and flour is very dull, and orders for shipments are not attended too for want of confidence. Hay has advanced a little in price, and may be expected shortly to make another ad vance; as an article of export, hay this season will no doubt be very considerable. The great reduction in the price of meat with regard to the tenders which have been accepted, has thrown a damp on the efforts of the graziers and flo...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 27 February 1843

GMinBN. — If the weather is favorable, sow various eeds to come in during the winter and spring. This course should be regularly adopted, as if the seeds fail the loss is not much— jf they succeed, the advantage will be ereat indeed. Prune, regulate, &c, the summer shoots of all fruit trees, as directed last month. Never cease destroying insects. By continuing this course, they will eventually be thinned. Keep your garden clean, and clear off the decayed stalks of various plants. 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.

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 27 February 1843

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER TEETOTAL' ADVOCATE. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1843. ' Evil bablu are so far from graving weaker from repeated ?' attempts to overcome them, that if Ihty 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 ' tbeir tyranny endeavour to escape from them, appears by the ' event to be generally wrong ; they try to loose their chains ' 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 hojw to ' escape but those who, by an cflbrt sudden and violent, burst ' their shackles at once, and leave her at a distance.' Du. Sauukl Johneon. His Excellency Sir John Franklin and suite, arrived in Launceston on Friday evening. Our correspondents have recently been dwel ling upon the introduction of Teetotalism in the ar...

TO THE EDITORS OF THR COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. Gentlemen, — It must be truly gratifying to the friends of temperance, to Lear that more than four thousand ministers of the gospel in the Uni ted States of America, have signed the total abstinence paper; we felt nn indescribable plea sure in thinking that Dr. Beechen bad lived to see such an universal response to the call which he gave to Christian ministers, when he first laid the foundation stone of the temperance reformation. And now, sa.vs this immortalised man, could my voice he extended through the land to all orders and descriptions of men, I would ' cry aloud and spare not.' To the watchmen upon Zion's walls — appointed to announce the approach of danger, and to say unto the wicked man, 'thou shalt surely die ;' I would say, can we hold our peace, or withhold the influence of our example in such hu emergency as this, and be guiltless of blood ? Are we not called upon to set examples of entire abstinence? How otherwise sh...

ON SEEING THE TEETOTAL PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 27 February 1843

OH SEEING THE TEETOTAL PROCESSION. In days of yore, when ancient Rome Potir'd forth her regions to the fight, Caused the whole earth her power to own, And fill'd all nations with affright. , Her heros then, with victory crown'd. The streets in grand procession pae'd; With laurel wreaths their brows were bound. And captive foes their triumph graced. Their names in sculptur'd marble shone A grateful tribute to their praise ; While bards their glorious deeds made known In rapturous sougsof plaintive lays. If ancient Rome could thus display Her gratitude for vict'ries won, Shall Britain's sons no honor pay To those who nobler deeds have done ? For these have fought a braver fight— These have subdued a fiercer foe Than e«er Roman by bis might Or warlike skill could overthrow. The drunkard's craving lusts to still, His raging passions to subdue, Are feats of labour, strength, and skill, Which Roman heros ne'er could do. If they who fight should merit praise. Much more should they who stri...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 27 February 1843

NEW ZEALAND. The following account of a gala day at New Zealand, will be read with interest. It exhibits a novel blending of sports, enjoyed without drunkenness. The teetotallers, we perceive, were setting a good example. The Third Anniversary of the arrival of the Srst band of adventurers for these shores, was cele brated on Monday last. Tbe weather on that day was every thing we could wish, although preceeded and succeeded by every thing the reverse. The amusement of the day commenced by a canoe race between two canoes manned by natives in full costume ; and although tbe waters were somewhat rough, they. were not so much so as to impede any of the aquatic sports of the day. Tbe next in succession was a rowing match between four whale boats, which was ably contested by the several crews, who had certainly no easy task to pull out to the turning pointwith the north wester blowing fresh. Mr. George Allen's boat won the race in good style. After they had started some short time, seven...

POPULAR FALLACIES A CAUSE OF INTEMPERANCE. (CONTINUED.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 27 February 1843

POPULAR FALLACIES A CAUSE OF IN TEMPERANCE. From an Essay on the Nature, Causes, Effects, and Cure of Intemperance, by Ralph Barnes Orindrod, Surgeon. (continued.) Tiie following extract is made from a statement in the European Magazine, and London Review for November, 1811.— 'Having passed the greater part of fourteen winters in the districtof Maine, in the latidude of 44° north, where fahrenheit's thermometer has been known 30° below Zero, and where a person engaged in any active pursuit, must frequently, in the course of every winter, be exposed to cold, greater than 20 ° below Zero. Under such circumstances, all prudent people abstain from the use of ardent spirits, and make great use of coffee, it being the general custom in travelling (which is almost always in open sledges) to have coffee as a beverage for dinner, instead of any other ; and the effect I have always heard at tributed to it, and which it certainly had on myself. is, to produce a general glow over the whole sur ...

' A wise legislature at home has seen fit to pro tect the interests of the humbler classes of society, and the savings' banks especially are fostered ana guarded against frauds and losses. The colomei, generally, in this respect hare followed the ex ample of the mother country, and have act* of council to protect the interests of depositors IB such institutions ; and I beg to band you the ab stract of the balance sheet of the New South Wales Savings' Bank, where you will perceive the deposits and accumulated interest amounts to tht large sum of £193,000.

MANAGEMENT OF COTTAGE GARDESN. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 27 February 1843

MANAGEMENT OF COTTAGE GARDESN. In order to derive as much benefit as possible from his plot of land, the Cottager must attend in par ticular to three things : — 1st. To dig it properly. 2udly. To provide, or lay on it sufficient ma nure. 8rdly, To change the crops regularly. We shall make a few observations on each of these points. 1st. To dig the land properly. Let the digging be to a sufficient depth. Particularly, if the Tumi should bare 'been but indifferently managed be fore he took it in baud, the cottager should dig a few inches deeper than die plough could have gone, and he will find what is called virgin-mould which is a treasure of great value. If the soil be naturally wet; it Is good if it can be dried by I under-ground drains, and if the under-soil be of a ] etiff retentive (likely to IidV.1 the moisture) quality, t'ae whole of tbe plot must be formed into ridges, well rounded uud raised to to the middle, 60 as ! ?allow tbe surface-water (water on the upper part) to run ...
