THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, OCTOBER 19. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 19 October 1840

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER MONDAY, OCTOBER 19. The first act of the farce, entitled "Colonial   Legislation," has been brought to a close, and the performers have retired behind the scenes. In writing a critique upon the performances of this corps dramatique, we need scarcely remark that the hisses and other tokens of displeasure from the audience have been entirely disre-     garded, and that the farce, though violently op- posed and ridiculed, has been forced through the first part without any alteration of the plot. The leading characters were well sustained by Messrs. FOSTER and TURNBULL, who played to very good effect. The audience, however,   were far from being satisfied ; but their dissatis- faction was disregarded, with an indifference and nonchalance which might have done honour to a mountebank. Or, in other words the remon-   strances of the press have been wholly unheeded by our Colonial Legislature ; and upon ...

POLICE REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 26 October 1840

POLICE REPORT. A hoart-heabed Bacchanalian named Frazer, whose frosty locks plainly told that some three score years and ten had rolled over his head, was charged with having been in a state of intoxication. He was found the previous evening lying in a gutter, a circumstance, from whirii nnc wnuld be led to assume he must have taken a great deal of cold wiilwut. A-henignant smije.lighted up his countenance as he pleaded in extenuation of his crime. He was walking up the street— went into a public house and- came out again, as he had often done before. Strange to say, the effect was extraordinary he was seized with a giddiness, and fell into the gutter, where he certainly would not have remained,, could he have got out again. The Magistrate gave him credit for his veracity W made him pay for, his inebriety ; the old man left the office looking as pleasant as most old men do when they are pleased wit& themselves, and ap parently delighted to think that he had escaped on such c...

It is ex pected tbat scrme very interesting experiments willbe exhibited, proving tbe pernicious influence the dose has upon the physical and intellectual constitution of man. We are indebted to the Co lonial Times for the following extract, which is abridged from Tails Magazine. It appears that early in the year 1838, the Revd. Mr. Mathews, established a Total Abstinence So ciety in Cork, which on the 20th January, 1840, numbered 500,000 members. The first attempt to establish a Total Abstinence so ciety in the south of Ireland, was made in Cork, by some members of the society of friends. This was attended with little or no success; and they solicited Mr. Matthew to commence one on similar principles, rightly jud...

QUEEN VICTORIA. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 26 October 1840

QUEEN VICTORIA. ( Continued from our last. J We have before spoken of the happy iudica tions which the countenance of her Majesty so auspiciously betrays ; buVwe may be permitted to add that those who have not seen the Quefcn of late, can form but a~very imperfect idea of the personal appearance of their Sovereign since her accession to the throne. To even a casual observer, it must have occureu (who was present at St. James's palace on the memorable morning on the 20th June, 1837, and the feel ing was reciprocated,) that the weight of go vernment had not fallen lightly on the shoulders of its present possessor ; this was indeed so ge nerally and uniformly conspicuous in her Ma jesty's deportment, thac it does not require ad - niittance to the council-chamber to convince us of the fact ; even in her daily intercourse, at that period, with her people, (as was her habit at Brighton,) not traces only of deep and preg nant thought were visible in her countenance, but an abstraction of m...
