THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, JANUARY 18. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 18 January 1841

THE IAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, JANUARY 18. The William from Sydney brings us our files of papers to the 7th January. The sister Colony had only partially recovered from the recent commercial distress, and the want of money was still loudly complained of. Busi ness in general was very dull. Wheat is quoted iram os. to /s. bd per bushel, and a rise does not appear to be at all anticipated. We strongly advise the wheat holders of this Colony to pro profit by last years experience, and not to be too obstinate in demanding a high price for their grain. The harvest at Sydney has been un usually abundant. . The working classes at Sydney appear to be a -spirited set. An Act similar to the servant and apprentices act now in force in this Colony was attempted to be introduced there, but was vigorously opposed by the Sydney operatives, who united and petitioned against it. rue Aus tralasian Chronicle was also loud in opposing the. Bill, and in return for the services of the Editor Mr. Duncan,...

INSOLVENT COURT. Ok Wednesday last, George Griffiths appeared at the adjourned meeting of his creditors Immediately upon his being sworn, Mr. Gleadow, on behalf of the cre ditors, applied to the commissioners to lodge an infor mation against Griffiths for wilful and corrupt perjury, respecting a statement he made a few days previously on oath before the commissioner, relative to the first of a set of treasury bills, amounting to .upwards of it' 1,000. A clearer case of perjury could not well be conceived ; uut iur. oams am nut inin& uiai ne was me proper per son to prosecute, and accordingly declined doing so. It appeared from one of Griffiths' affidavits, that he had purchased goods with the bill in question at Port Phillip, and that these goods, or part of them, were on board some vessel in Launceston : the name of the vessel he refused to tell. He afterwards swore the bill was at his own command. ' Oh this, Mr. Gleadow applied to have the bill delivered up to the assignee...

WRECK OF THE CLONMEL STEAM SHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 18 January 1841

WRECK OF THE CLONMEL STEAM SHIP. When we visited this splendid vessel a few weeks ago, little did we think that it would so soon become our painful duty to record the above melancholy event. The intelligence reached us on Fridav, by the cutler Mary, from Port Phillip. The following is all that is at present known of the matter. On the 4th of Ja nuary, the cutter Sisters, when returning from the: wreck of the Isabella, where she had been despatched for the purpose of bringing up the passengers, saw in the distance a boat with a red flag hoisted, and upon bearing up, it turned out to be a boat from the steamer Clonmell, which had been despatched to Port Phillip to obtain assistance, and report the situation of the vessel to the agent. Captain Roach. It was from this boat that all the particulars were received, but we have been unable to obtain any satisfactory information as to the state of tbe weather when the accident occurred, or to what cause it ought be attributed. The Clonmell r...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, JANUARY 25 [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 25 January 1841

THE UUNCESTON COURIER, MONDAY, JANUARY 25. Ws have of late had numerous enquiries ad dressed to us relative to the Road Act;— Where is it ? What has become of it ? We can give no satisfactory answer to these questions— we do not Imow ivhere it is, or what has become of it; but the general impression is, that nothing more will be heard about it. It has never been transmitted to the court to be enrolled, and yet the date of ils coining into operation is fixed on the 1st February. Now, as an act cannot come into operation before it is enrolled, so also we imagine, it cannot be enrolled after the date fixed in the preamble for its coming into operation, unless therefore it is enrolled before our next publication, we apprehend that the council must be re-assembled before the Act can ?be brought into operation at all. We have little doubt, however, that the errors and ' blunders' have, upon further reflection, become so appa rent, that the government have abandoned the measure, rather tha...

THE FIRE IN PLYMOUTH DOCK YARD. (From the Devmport Telegraph, Sept. 27. J An awfully -grand conflagration, attended with the entire destruction of a line-of battle ship, a frigate, and an immense amount of public property, occurred in this dock-vard. on Sunday morning. - At 20 minutes past 4, the police officer on duty near the three northern docks, which contained the Talavera, 72 guns, and Minden, 72 guns, fitting as demonstration ships, and the lmngene, 28 guns, fitting for commission, suddenly observed smoke issuing from the bow port -holes of the Talavera, which- lay in what is called the stern dock. He immediately ran to the station at the gate, and Lieutenant Williams, the superintendent, got out the engine, ,'caused the bell to be rung, and was on the spot with a large body of his men within a few minutes of the first alarm. The fire had meanwhile burst forth with tremendous fury, and had caught the lightlycon Etructed roof over the dock. It was at once seen that nothing cou...
