TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. SOME PASSAGES IN THE LIFE OF AN OLD SOLDIER. ( Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 27 February 1843

TO THE EDITORS OF THE COURIER AND TEETOTAL ADVOCATE. SOME PASSAGES IN THE LIFB OF AN OLD SOLDIER. (Continued from our last.) I escaped the gaities of Paris, where our regi- ment lay in barracks ; but the facilities with which our men procured intoxicating drink, proved a great snare to many of them. I remember, after leaving Paris, our men conducted themselves very disorderly while on the march. The commanding officer made no Complaint at the time, but upon our arrival at Cambray, where we were stationed for some time, he had the most outrageous tried before a court martial - having, as he observed, watched their conduct on the route, and been de- termined to serve them out. Their drinking pro- pensities led them to the halberts, and they were severely flogged.   Soon after, this I was ordered home, and having   served my country upwards of 21 years, I felt de- sirous of enjoying domestic comfort, and solicited my discharge, which was graciously granted to ...

THE ANATOMY OF SLEEP. The art of procuring Sleep at Will. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 6 March 1843

THE ANATOMY OF SLEEP. Tlie art of procuring Sleep at Will. If any one be disposed to enquire how this desirable result may be secured, when ever he is to sink into silent obliviousuesi not merely ?? sound,' but 'refreshing' sleep being premised— Dr. Binns discloses the secret in a lew words : — 'Let him turn on his right side; place his head comfortably on the pillow, so that it exactly occupies the angle a line drawn from the head to the shoulder would form ; and then, sliglhly closing his lips, take rather a fnll inspiration, breathing as much as he possibly through the nostrils. 1 his. however, is not absolutely ne cessary, as some persons breathe always through their mouths during sleep, and rest as sonnd as those who do not. Having taken a full inspi ration, the lungs are (ben to be left to their own action ; that is. the resnirution is nonlmr in l-» accelerated nor retarded. The attention must now be fixed upon the action in which the patient is engaged, lie must depict to him...

THE SCOURGER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 6 March 1843

THE SCOURGER. ' The vast, the untiniimlccl prospect lies before us; Iiut clouils.nlasl and darkness rest upon it.' Intemperajcce, because of iis airiquitv and extensive prevalence in the world, — because of the great snbilety with which it has made its lodgment among the families of men, — because ot me extreme tenacity ot us now, — anu on ac count of the ruin it has occasioned in the terra queous globe, — deserves, doubtless, the name which heads our present effusion. The pesti lence that walketh at noon-day is less hateful than (his odious vice : it is more deleterious than the Pennine marshes : more destructive than the combined evils of earthquake, shipwreck, and war ; and happy would it be for the world at large,— and fur the church of Gud loo,— were an alarm more frequent and more powerfully produced respecting this direful evil. Through Divine mercy, we are sensibly alive lo our responsibility ; and therefore we obey the mandate of Him who commands us, — ' Cry aloud, spare no...

He is an infant catholic, j. e. one not brought up to the religion ; and he is not a learned one either, or he would have known that his adopted church is excessively ?puritanical with respect to amusements much more innocent than horse racing.
