The Corn Market. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 12 October 1840

The Corn Market. Upwards of 2000 barrels of flour have arrived at Hobart Town from South America.. Wheat may be said to be daily falling in value ; and we observe that the Government Stores are no longer open for its .recep tion at a higher rate than 7«. 6d. per bushel. A few sales have come to our knowledge at about 9s., which we believe is as near the average as can.be fixed in the present state of the market. The price of Bread fell this morning to Is. 2d. the 41b. loaf.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 12 October 1840

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. Sir— The enclosed summary, respecting the hiring of free servants in England, which 1 have drawn up for the guidance of my agent, being a matter -affecting the public weal, you will perhaps be disposed to publish it. A ceneral concurrence in its sentiments, if approved of, will greatly strengthen the hands of masters, meet many unpleasant difficulties which might otherwise have to be encountered, tend in a great degree to lessen the number of complaints likely to be made at the polic, offices, and in the end prove highly beneficial to the men themselves, inasmuch as the particulars stated be ing, clearly understood, and agreed upon beforehaned their direct tendency will be to allay trifling causes of irritation which sometimes, in like cases, suddenly rise from mole bills. into mountains 1 As it will also be putting Chubb's patent padlock, as it were, upon the indenture, it will, in my opinion, be likewise very bene ficial to the emigrant ; f...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, OCTOBER 12. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 12 October 1840

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, OCTOBER 12. The first number of the Launceston Courier, is now laid before the public. In so doing we have much pleasure in stating that the arrange ments originally contemplated, have been abandoned, and that others liave been entered into, bv which this Journal will now be pre sented grade to the subscribers of the Launces ion Advertiser. We do not, however, hold ourselves responsible for any opinions expressed bv that Journal; the Courier will be under an entirely different management, and its political creed will in no way be influenced, or biassed by any other portion of the Colonial press. The first appearance of a new Journal is always looked upon with interest. It affords amusement to hundreds of busy specu lators, who delight themselves with predictions as fo its failure or success, it gives a momeutary gratification to excited curiosity, and adds some little variety to the monotonous life of a Colonial Politician. A new Journal is therefore,...

QUEEN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 12 October 1840

QUEEN VICTORIA. The interest so generally felt and displayed by all classes in the community, when anything pertaining to tlie Sovereign, addresses itself to their notice, is characteristic no less of the loyalty, than of the warm-heartedness of an Englishman : for who does not remember to have witnessed that intenseness of devotion to the subject with which an auditory has listened to the learned details of newspaper officidusness, merely because that subject involved the dis position of habits — perchance the less ostensible because the more remote peculiarities - of the Court; and who has hot, on such an occasion, shared the common enthusiasm, as the prayer, 'God save the Queen,' rose to his. impa- tient lip ? And long may that prayer continue to ascend from every honest heart, when the hand which now engraves the wish shall have signed its contract with the grave. ? Gentle Reader ! In introducing you to these scenes, be assured that we have an object in view beyond the gratifica...

OCTOBER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 12 October 1840

OCTOBER. « I see around me the wide fields revive, With fruits and fertile promise; and the spring Come forfhi her work of gladness to contrive, With all Ijer reckless birds Upon the wing..' Chilbk Harold. Plants.— This month may be considered the commencement of the Spring. The blossoms now expand to the returning sun, and the buds unfold to the fresh rains. The leaf-buds of fruit trees are protected from the colds prevalent in the pn^feding months, both by being com pactly fdKd.*,nd enveloped in a tough skin or **''* membrdhe, and, in most cases, by a thick glu tinous gum — too adhesive to be washed off by the frequent rains, The only efficient solvent to the leaf-bud gum is the je-aspending sap, which dilutes it and renders ityjelding, like the acid applied to its envelope, by the moth when it escapes from its pupa. It is worthy of re mark every bud, is supposed, by high botanical authority, to constitute an individual plant, and a tree is consequently a compound or rather aggreg...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. Her Majesty. — The universal gladness of this great national holiday, (her Majesty's birth day,) will be materially heightened by the com munication we are now enabled to make, inti mations of which* we gave some time since. It is no longer a matter of doubt that her Majesty is in a way likely to realise the hopes of all her loyal subjects,, by perpetuating, in the direct line, the succession to the Throne. — Globe. The Imprisoned Chartists.— At a recent mealing of the visiting magistrates of the Lan caster castle, the chaplain of the jail stated that he had been applied to by some of the Chartists now undergoing their term of imprisoment for some mitigation of the i-risqn rules respecting the books now introduced for their reading. Mr. Bronterre O'Brien Degged'to be allowed to have Blackstone's commentaries and the classics. A discussion thereupon took pla'pe, the magistrates appearing to think that such books were not contemplated by the rules, which declared tha...

POLICE REPORT. Thursday, October 8, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 12 October 1840

POLICE REPORT. Thursday, October 8, 1840. Wm. Burns, and Louisa Haggerty, paid 5s. each for   being overspirited the previous night Benjamin Casgrove was charged with assaulting a female ; the offence being proved against him, by way of extenuation he remarked, that he not only assaulted her, but was also intoxicated at the same time, and for this very palliating feature of the case, he considered himself entitled to some leniency. He was fined one pound and costs, and begged for time to pay it, which was refused; thus very clearly showing, that a person gains no credit by being taken to the Police Office. James Allen was charged with being found in the house of Mrs. Collingsby, at Kings Meadows, with a felonious intent and George Rowe on suspicion of being some how or other connected with him, but as nothing of this sort appeared, on evidence, he was discharged. Allen admitted his having been in the house in question, but denied that he was at all feloniously inclined,...
