IMPORTANCE OF FIRE INSURANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 23 May 1842
IMPORTANCE OF FIRE INSURANCE. The following article from the New South Wales Examiner, contains a useful hint lo Merchants. The partial destruction of the Lain Raffles hy fire, when on the point of sailing with a valuable cargo for London, suggests to our mercarifjlc.com munity in a very emphatic manner, the necessity bs well as the importance of insurance froin -fire It was not until several serious conflagrations had taken place in Sydney, that landlords discovered the advantages of ; an Insurance Company, but that its advantages were eventually discovered, is obvious from the feet that a second association for Fire Insurances has sprung up within the last twelve months, and that a sufficient business is fou nd for the profitable operation of this one, as we 1 as of its predecessor. We trust that jt will not require the burning of half a dozen ships, to prove the obvious necessity of insuring cargoes from the effect of this most destructive element, while in port — but that our me...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, MAY 23. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 23 May 1842
THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY. MAY 23. We do not agree willi a contemporary who dis approves of ihe establishment of Municipal Institutions in the Australasian Colonies. On llie contrary, we hail- their introduction with much gratification. We cannot comprehend our contemporary's assertion that ' the clamour for free Institutions is ridiculous, unless the principle of Legislation by representation be conceded in its fullest extent.' We should look upon any partial introduction of the elec tion franchise as a small instalment of our rights, and value it accordingly. Indeed we question the prudence of effecting so sudden a change in the Government of any Colony, as that which our contemporary seems to desire. The great transition from a state of bondage to that of in dependence could not be safely and suddenly accomplished. The change should be gradual. The establishment of corporations in the two principal towns, would he the first steps ; and why not seize upon every opportunity of...

The number now published concludes this ad mireable work ; and in the preface, the talented author has taken leave of ths public till November, 1842, when, if Providence permit, he intends to come before them again with a new work. His time will be occupied in a visit to America. The tale is well wound up. We copy the following extract rrom it : — Preparations for the execution of the principal rioters. ' The yard was filled with people ; bluff civic functionaries, officers of justice, soldiers, the cu rious in such matters, and guests who had been bidden as to a wedding. Hugh looked about him, nodded gloomily to some person in authority, who indicated with his hand in what direction he was to proceed ; and clapping Baruaby on the shoulder, passed out with the gait of a lion. ' They entered a large room, so near to the scaffold that the voices of those who stood about it could be plainly heard : some beseeching the javelin men to take them out ...
