TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 4 June 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR, — Could you inform me what is the inten- tion of the Town Surveyor in leaving Margaret-   street unnoticed and untouched ? After a heavy rain it is quite impassable, being one sheet of water ; and not merely water, for when that has gone down, it leaves a quantity of mud, so that, as I said before, it renders the street impassable for a week or two. A SUFFERER.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR. — The fault lays principally with me, in copying the " Tear," not to have informed you that it was first published in 1803 ; which, from the multiplicity of business, you might have over- looked : but it certainly shows the test of true friendship in your grandmother, to shed so many tears in consequence of a mere oversight.

PARKS AND PLEASURE GROUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 4 June 1842

PARKS AND PLEASURE GROUNDS. Public opinion is gradually awakening to a sense of the importance of open spaces for air and exercise, as a necessary sanatary provision for the inhabitants of all large towns. In the suburbs of many of the cities of Germany and Holland, where for- tifications once existed, the walls have been demolished, the ditches filled up, and beds of flowers, shrubberies, and broad gravel walks formed instead, where in summer time the whole population may often be seen enjoying the pleasures of the evening promenade. In England, excepting a few instances, where the corporations retain the privileges conferred by old charters, the municipalities of large towns have neither the power to build a bridge, to erect a pump, to purchase a burying ground, to open pub- lic gardens, or to do anything not included in paving and lighting, however essential to the health and general welfare of resident householders. The town of Derby has lately received a noble benefaction throu...

NORTHERN AGRICULTURAL REPORT FOR MAY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 4 June 1842

NORTHERN AGRICULTURAL REPORT FOR MAY. The important field occupations of this season of the year have been carried on under highly favourable circumstances. While some of the jour- nals have represented the southern districts as suffering, till a late period, under protracted drought, we have been favoured with a succession of rains, commencing sufficiently early to permit a considerable breadth of land to be sown in ex- cellent time and in good order. During the last fortnight much rain has fallen, and as the temper- ature has been generally mild, the hay grounds and Cape barley are looking strong and promising, while the young wheat is also making a very good appearance. If the present open weather should continue, our young crops will get ' winter proud,' which might be very conveniently turned to ac- count, by running a few scores, or hundreds, of sheep over them, in proportion to the quantity of land under crop. For several years past we are informed that on the runs grass has ...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 4 June 1842

TO CORRESPONDENTS. " Inquirer, of Portland Bay." Some of the remarks in his excellent letter he will find anti- cipated in our former numbers. We should, how- ever, insert it had we not determined to decline, for the present, all skirmishing upon the question. Argument is degenerating into abuse, references to scripture into blasphemy, and some advocates of the cause plainly show that they disregard everything but the success of a shim and the ex- altation of themselves. We should be glad to se an authorised statement of the facts and argu- ments on which the Teetotal Society relies. It is too much to expend our pages in bagging every bird that may hop into the arena. " East-Anglian." We are reluctantly compelled to postpone his communication for another week.
