NEW TALE OF A TUB. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 19 March 1842
NEW TALE OF A TUB. THE " New Tale of a Tub" appears as a thin small folio, consisting of some sixteen pages of humorous verse, with seven or eight lithographic drawings, the former being by F. W. N. Bayley, and the latter by Aubrey, from designs by Lieutenant J. S. Cotton. If any man has a tolerable drawing-room, in which he finds it some- timer rather difficult to get company up to a certain pitch, let him possess himself of this laughter-moving volume, and deposit it on the principal table in the said room ; after which, we venture to predict, awful half hours before dinner, and tedious yawn- ing whole hours after it, will be known no longer in that locality. The Tale of a Tub is told both by the drawings and the verse, clearly enough by the latter, but with out- rageous drollery by the former. The scene is in Bengal. On a coolish day two gentle- men, one tall and thin, the other short and stout, resolve to walk in the country and enjoy a pic-nic. An empty barrel has been carried ...

CORONER'S INQUEST. &nbsp; &nbsp; AN inquest was held at the Scottish Chief, in Wellington Street, on Friday, the 18th instant, before P. A Mulgrave, Esq., Coroner, on view of the body of George Brently, who died of apoplexy on the preceding day. The following is an out- line of the evidence : W. R. Pugh, Esq., examined, - On Wednesday evening last, the 16th instant, I was called to at- tend the deceased ; he was in bed in a state of in- sensibility, violently convulsed, and labouring under an attack of epilepsy ; the usual means were &nbsp; employed, but the convulsions continued until yesterday morning, when he died, about ten o'clock ; I had a post mortem examination of the &nbsp; remains this morning, and found distinct evidence of long-continued inflammation of the brain and its membranes; the vessels on the surface of the brain were distended with blood, and a consider- able quantity of'serous fluid was effused into the ventricles at the base o...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 19 March 1842
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. (Continued fromt our last.) &nbsp; The publication of the Colonial Records &nbsp; was exciting considerable interest. The &nbsp; Zuid Afrikaan has the following notice of &nbsp; the matter:— The communication of Mr. D, Moodie, and our appeal, has had a good effect. The public have been roused, and are becoming subscribers ; and last, not least, the Board of Commissioners of the Cape Town Municipality, on receiving from Mr. &nbsp; Moodie a copy of the publication, have resolved in their meeting of Wedneoday last, to submit to the ensuing meeting of the Board of Wardmasters &nbsp; their resolution of the following tenor :— "That it is the opinion of the Board of Com- missioners that the publication of the Cape re- cords is a national work, which, as it tends to vin- dicate the character and measures of' the colonists and colonial government, with reference to the aborigines, should be brought to a conclusion. That Mr. ...
PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 19 March 1842
PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. (Continued from our last.) The Examiner remarks on the Premier's debut — If it had been the intention of Sir Robert Peel to insult the distresses of the country. he could &nbsp; not have slighted them in a more marked and offensive way than he contrived to do in his debut as Prime Minister on Thursday. He appeared to give importance to trifles, as if to show how much more trifling he thought the questions which so large a portion of the community deem of the vastest importance and vital concern. The whole was no bad copy of Nero fiddling while Rome was burning ; and Sir Robert Peel's tune in the midst of the fire is to " put the kettle on." The first subject, first in order and in conse- quence, on which Sir Robert Peel entered with due pomp, was the warming and ventilating of the new houses. This great topic occupied a full &nbsp; quarter of his speech. There is something cha-- &nbsp; racteristic in the beginning — it said, " let ...
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 19 March 1842
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. Shortly before one o'clock, the following official bulletin, announcing her Majesty's accouchcment, and the birth of a Prince, was published:— " The Queen was safely delivered of a Prince this morning, at forty-eight minutes past ten o'clock. " Her Majesty and the infant Prince are going on well. " JAMES CLARK, M. D. " CHARLES LOCOCK, M. D. " ROBERT FERGUSON, M. D. "RICHARD BLAGDEN. " Buckingham Palace, Tuesday, Nov. 9, 1841, half-past 11 o'clock." — Standard. The following extract is from one of Lord John Russell's despatches to Governor Hobson, and has lately been published in a volume of parliamentary papers relating to New Zealand. We deem it of sufficient interest to lay before our readers, as deve- loping views of colonial policy characteris- tic of the late Ministry :— Another important rule for your guidance is, to promote, as far as possible, the establishment of municipal and district governments for the con- duct of all local affairs, such as drainage, b...
TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 19 March 1842
TO CORRESPONDENTS. The letter of " A Real Shareholder" is received. If he will favor us with his name, in confidence, and satisfy us that the person to whom he alludes was concerned in concocting the dis- graceful letter referred to, we will insert "Share holder's" communication. Without this, we would not pain the feelings of any man by an allusion, however just, while it is to us unsubstantiated. Our correspondent will see we have not overlooked the matter. The reference to "LIFE Insurance more particu- larly" shows at once that the writer of the scur- rilous lettr is not even interested in the Com- pany. The production, as usual, has been got up for the occasion. S——'s original poetry will not suit our columns. &nbsp; His MS. is left at he office, and may be had &nbsp; on application. Communications for the Editor, order's for the paper and advertisements, to be ad- dressed or left at the Launceston Exami- ner office, Brisbane-street. TERMS. — Subscription, if pai...
NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 19 March 1842
NEW ZEALAND. The Land Claims' Bill (says the New Zealand Hearld) escaped the Committee on Thursday with the loss of a great por- tion of its prodigious tail ; it is now a snug little concern, consisting of three or four small clauses, so ambiguously worded that any child may read them, but the wisdom of Solomon, or Solon himself, could not fathom their meaning. It is a neat little multum in parvo to settle a thousand claims, each varying from another, and affecting in their just settlement not only the present but prospective welfare of this interesting country. We were very much amazed at the great concessions made by the Government to two of the independent members, who we know were very sanguine in their expectations, and who were very anxious to impress upon the public mind that they would put everything to rights, and procure a good measure from the Go- vernment. We hope the public, and the land claimants in particular, will show their gratitude to Mr. Porter and Mr. Clendon, f...
