LAUNCESTON ADVERTISER. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1829. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 9 February 1829

LAUNCESTON ADVERTISER. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1829. Laboring under numerous disadvantages, we feel exceeding diffidence in introducing to the Public, this, (our first) number of the LAUNCESTON ADVERTISER, but when we consider, that time alone can surmount the difficulties, which invariably attend a new un- dertaking, find that those difficulties will be allowed for, and considered, by a generous and discerning Public, we confess we feel our confidence encouraged. At the commencement of our task, our readers will naturally expect us to avow the principles, on which our Journal will be established ; we therefore conceive it to be our duty to declare our sentiments in the most explicit manner, and faithfully to describe the path, which we in our pro fession are determined to pursue. The primary object that we have in view, is, io disseminate ififcresting intelligence, commercial information, pleasing inslruc fion, end profitable recreation.

Extraordinary discovery of the Murder of Mrs. Donatty. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 9 February 1829

  Extraordinary dicovery of the     Murderer of Mrs. Donatty. It will doubtless, be in the recollection of many of our readers, that the year 1822, a most   intense feeling of horror was excited throughout the Metropolis of Great Britain, by the shocking murder of MRS. DONATTY, who resided in Robert street, Bedford row, Bloomsbury square. For weeks the papers of England teemed with accounts of this mysterious and dreadful transaction, the perpetrators of which, till now have never been   discovered. It appears that Joseph Moulds, one of the unhappy men under sentence of death in this gaol, for participating in the robberies   Messrs. Corney, Youl, and Macleod, aware of his awful and approaching dissolution, and feeling a remorse of conscience for his past sins, has     declared himself the murderer Mrs. Donatty.     The wretched man states, that he and his com- panion, having accidentally heard that Mrs. D.   was possessed of considerable wealt...

Exorbitant Price of Bread. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 9 February 1829

Exorbitant Price of Bread. Although the price of wheat appears to have fallen considerably, we do not observe the least diminution in the Bakers' charges for bread. It comes under our personal knowledge, that several loads of wheat we sold in the course of last week at 7s per bushel, to the Bakers themselves, who still have the conscience to charge 1s 4d for the quartern loaf, a price, warrantable only, when wheat is from 15s to 20s per bushel ; this is a most infamous and gross imposition upon the pub- lic; but we trust the time is not far off, when the same regulations will be put in force here, which are in existence in the mother country, regarding the prices and the weight of bread. It is abso- lutely a serious public grievance, when the price weight, and quality of the STAFF OF LIVE, is left to the discretion of a mercenary junto of these despotic Lords of the oven. Four of the Convicts who lately escaped from Macquarie Harbour in a Government boat, have been taken near Circul...

ca[?]ion to Wife Sellers and Buyers. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 9 February 1829

Caution to Wife Sellers and Buyers. Charles Skinner having sold his wife to John Savage for one shilling and a pot of beer, at   Tonbridge, all three were sentenced last week, at West Kent Sessions, to a month's imprisonment — York Herald. ------------       The Tragedy of Macbeth was acted in August last at a town in Suffolk, and amongst the audience was a mnan who had been nearly 50 miles in the course of the day to see Cordor. the murderer, hanged at Bury. Such was the   belief entertained to the last, in some parts of the country, that the extreme penalty of the law would not be inflicted,, that the man who had seen him die was so pestered on all sides for an account of the melancholy spectacle, that he literally betook himself to the Theatre to avoid further importunities. Just as he entered, the fourth scene of the tragedy was commencing, and as he was quietly sitting himself down in a box near the stage, Duncan ...

LAUNCESTON ADVERTISER MONDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1829. That the unrestrained LIBERTY OF THE PRESS     it an INVALUABLE blessing, none but a madman would deny. It is equally true, that the licentions abuse of that liberty is a severe drawback upon iudividual comfort.   In taking upon us the important duties of an Editor, we come before the public with diffidence ; we solicit their forbearance upon this our first attempt, hoping that they will bear in mind, that "diffidence is no sure criterion of want of talent."   We commence with a subject that is of para- mount importance to every well wisher of this side of the Island, the land of our adoption. We find by the statment (as given in the Courier of last wcekfof the imports and exports for the year 1826, (but in which accjoujit (Jip exports from Launceston have been -oc$eEtderably sutler rated) that the exports amounted to i£O,«tH, «f which total, wheat «loin- amounted to £ 12.928, while ...
