THE DOCTRINE OF TOTAL ABSTINENCE. (To the Editor of the Bristol Temperance Herald.) Birmingham, February 2nd, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 7 May 1842

TIIE DOCTRINE OF TOTAL ABSTI- NENCE. (To the Editor of the Bristol Tcmperance Herald.) Birmingham, February 2nd, 1841. MY DEAR SIR, — I am obliged to you for sending the copies of your Herald, which contain your views of the " Wine Question," as it is called, tested by scripture. As a real friend to the cause of total ab- stinence, I am grieved to hear and read, from time to time, the rash and perilous assertions of some of its most zealous, but in my opinion, least judicious advocates. Engaged in the desperate attempt to prove both from the Old and New Testaments, that no sanction has ever been given, even for the occasional and moderate use of any kind of alcoholic drinks, they hazard all kinds of unauthorised criticisms, some of them approaching to what is irreverend, and semi-infidel, and accompanied with much that is offensively dogmatical, to get rid of evidence which stands in the way of their hypothesis. By this means, they shock the judgments and the feelings of many who ar...

ORIGINAL POETRY. STANZAS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 7 May 1842

ORIGINAL POETRY. ' STANZAS. I knew not that the world contaln'd A form so lovely as thine own ; Nor deem'd that where such beauty reign'd Humility would fix her throne; For I had nr'k'd where eyes were brlight, Too well their owners knew their power, And arm'd thenl with that dazzling light The sun emlits at noontide's hour: Too proud to veil a single ray, Or one efiulgent ghlance surrender, And glittering with the blaze of day, And scorning twilight's softer splendour. I knew not where the foril display'd Such synunetry and grace as thine, That intellect would lend its aid, And sentiment there raise her shrine; For I had tnark'd where ferml and face Had beauty's varied charms combined, There oft was wanting feeling's trace The beam of soul-the ray of mind I And vain has been such studied art, And futile every cold endeavour I Thile light that cones not from thile heart A moment shines-then fades for ever. But I, at last, have tru''d from those Whom once I knew, to gaze on thee, Ott...

NEW NORFOLK QUIT RENT MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 7 May 1842

NEW NORFOLK QUIT RENT MEETING. ON Monday, the 25th ultimo, a meeting took place at the Bush Inn, for the purpose of considering the, at present, all absorbing question of the Quit Rents. The following address was adopted.— To His Excellency Sir John Franklin, Lieutenant- Governor of Van Diemen's Land, &c., &c., &c. SIR. — 1. The undersigned, landowners and other inhabitants of the district of New Norfolk, having heard with much regret that your Excel- lency has given positive orders to enforce the collection of the quit-rents, beg to unite in request- ing your Excellency's serious attention to certain obligations connected with those claims existing on the part of the government, which, apparently have been overlooked, though in justice they cannot be separated, but require full and equal consideration before payment can be reasonably or fairly demanded. 2. We do not now profess to enter fully into every particular bearing on the subject in question, but we b...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 7 May 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR. — Your correspondent " Samaritan" comes forward generally in such a candid liberal manner, in his letters on teetotalism, so far as he urges that practice on the score of expediency and special utility, that one feels regret at being obliged to differ with him when he is led to adopt the lax- ness of scripture interpretation, too general among the total-abstinence advocates. There are, I know, many practical teetotallers — men who ad- vocate that cause with great ability and sincerity — who revolt at the perversion of scripture often resorted to, in order to bear out the proposition that fermented liquors are unlawful, and that it is sinful to partake of them. Your correspondent in his zeal for the " cause" appears to me in his references to have taken the letter and not the spirit. I shall not go back to his antideluvian references, further than to remark that if teeto- talism then held sway it has left an imperishable memorial of its ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR. — Whcn three or four people having busi- ness to settle amongst themselves, and do not happen to meet with one another until rather late in the evening, they go into a public-house, where they remain until after ten o'clock on account of their being obliged to settle their affairs that night, as one or two of them intend leaving town early the next morning, they living perhaps from fifty to sixty miles apart from the others, is the pub- lican to turn them out as soon as ever the clock strikes ten, or is he allowed to let them remain until they have settled their business ? By informing me how the publican is to act, and the insertion of this, you will oblige Your's, &c., A FRIEND TO THE PUBLICANS. Launceston, April 29, 1842. [We presume in such a case as that put by our correspondent, the police would not interfere ; especially if the general character of the house was good. From the indefinite wording of the publicans' act, wer...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, May 7, 1842. EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 7 May 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, May 7, 1842. EMIGRATION. Long before Sir Robert Peel attained the reins of Government it was obvious that the party in power had frittered away their strength, and lost the confidence of the country. The historian will look back on their career with mingled emotions ; but he will do justice to their merits. He will mark their difficulties when he confesses their defeats, and not forget that they emancipated the slave, and widened the basis of civil and religious liberty. The attainment of office by the Tories will cause a new distribution of patronage, and scatter its golden stores among a class of poli- ticians which has long and impatiently suffered from exclusion. Yet we have no idea that the policy of the government will undergo a material practical change. A steady current moves on in spite of resist- ance. The power of the press, and the intelligence of the people, will successfully oppose the return of ancient Toryism ; and a strong minority, no...

THE DISTRESS IN LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 7 May 1842

TIE DISTRESS IN LAUNCESTON. THE following we extract from the Re- view :— At Launceston the distress is felt with unmiti- gated severity. The following is an extract of a letter from a highly rcspectable inhabitant of the northern metropolis : — " It is impossible to de- scribe the depressed state in which everything is here. We were bad enough twelve months ago, but now our condition is infinitely worse ; and it is really wonderful how a great proportion of the inhabitants exist. Talk of want of labour indeed ! want of bread would be a much more accurate de- scription of the wants of the great majority." We hope that investigation will not sus- tain this picture of local distress. It can scarcely be believed that the majority of our townsmen are languishing for bread. But the statement demands immediate in- quiry ; and if in any degree correct, a vigorous movement to impart relief. There is still enough charity and wealth to pre- serve the poor from starvation ; there are still man...

TEETOTAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 7 May 1842

TEETOTAL SOCIETY. The courteous notice furnished us by our teetotal townsmen of their intention to ex- amine the Examiner entitles them to our gratitude. But the field of oral debate is not always tenable by a journalist ; and we freely confess our reluctance to hazard our reputation in contending with a practised disputant. We think, however, that wea- pons selected from a detractor's armoury were unbecoming the champion who wielded them. How easily might the charge of interested motives be retorted. We assure him that our approbation of " Samaritan," though qualified, was sincere. There is melody in the name ; and the office it ex- presses, threatened as we are with missiles from all quarters, we are not in a condition to despise. We are not conscious of escaping from arguments by dexterity, or of answering them with sophistry : whatever our opi- nions are worth, they have been deliber- ately formed and candidly expressed. The suppression of intemperance — the object proposed by t...
