THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY. MAY 30. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 30 May 1842

THE UUNCESTOM COURIER. MONDAY. MAT 30. Arrivals this week, have furnished us with newspapers from nearly all the neighbouring Colonies. We make no apology for occupying so large a portion of our journal with extracts from those journals. The Canadians. — It appears 'by last week's Gazelle, thut two of these unfortunates who had received tickets-of-leave in the Oatlands district, have absconded, and as they were both known to 'have money, it is very probable that they have made their escape from the Colony. As respects the other Canadian prisoners, the circumstance is to. be regretted, as it will naturally induce the Government to exercise a closer -surveillance over such of them us iiave already acquired indulgences, and possibly re-: tard the granting of them to remainder. 'Chan- dler' and 'Wail' were prominent characters amongst them, 'and it was mainly to the extra ordinary heroism of tbe wife of the latter, that so great an interest was excited in England, as to their disposal h...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 30 May 1842

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We make the following extracts, from the latest South Australian papers, received by the Hawk : — Last Wool Ship of the Season. — The Caleb Angus sailed on the 9th May, for England, with wool, oil, and colonial produce — being the last ship direct for the present season. It is con fidently expected, says the Chronicle, that next {rear's oil. and wool clip will load eight vessels, at east the size of the Caleb Angus ; and' that the probable value of the exports, exclusive of pro duce to the neighbouring settlements, will exceed £70,000 — an immense sum, when the age of the colony is considered, and due allowance made for the almost ruinous check its energies have sus tained by the mad blundering pf its late Governor. The Coepobation. — The rate of ninepence in the pound is now in course of collection ; and, contrary to expectation, no .citizen has been yet found ready to ' bell the cat? with the Corpora tion on 'the score of its illegality.': The attempt to oppose th...

' Dear Sib,— We beg to hand you the annexed state ment of the importation of wool in 1841, which shews a considerable increase in Australian, 'when compared with 1840; an increase to such an extent we cannot an. ticipate in the present year, for a considerable portion of last year's importation belonged to the previous clip. The average importation of the last twelve years of wool from Germany, Spain, and Australia, (which are the onlv wools that come into' feomnetilion with each other.) is 34,270,000 lbs., while 1641, shews an aggregate of .36,650,000 lbs,, a difference' In itself comparatively trifling, but of some importance when it is considered that the average owes its augmentation solely to the Australian wool, while that of Germany and Spain has fallen oft It must, however, b...

TO THE EDITOH OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. Sir, . . In a late number of your journal, you notice an erroj in the longitude of a portion of the north-east coast of the Island, which the officers of the present Marine Survey have detected. Permit me to remark, that this errnr was renorted to the late Mr. Franklaod. their Surveyor General, as far back as 1836, by Mr. Znwson,' who was then employed on a coast survey in that quarter: How the last published map, appeared with so .gross an; error, (between nine and ten degrees I think,) or why it has not since been corrected, 1 leave the Survey depart ment tbcxplain. The circumstance argues a lamentable degree of neglect. ^ ? lam Sir; .,. . ~ Your's, very truly, . . Azimuth.
