TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 30 May 1842
TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. Mr. Editor, It was announced in the pages of last week's Chronicle, that the members of the Me- chanics' Institute, intend to fit out an expedition for the purpose of making a voyage to the Moon, and, that several talented gentlemen are to accompany the expedition, for tbe purpose of exercising their talents,' in enlightening the Lunarians on their arrival at the surface of that satellite. Mr. Operative, in giving a list of the names of the gentlemen who are to ac- company the expedition, has very modestly suppressed his own, and, also that of the Editor of the Cornwall Chronicle; but, I beg to inform the public, that it is the intention of the members of the Institute to press both of these gentlemen into the service, provided they can prevail upon the inhabitants of this world, to part with these two bright Luminaries, and consign them- selves for a season to the moral darkness, which their &nbsp; absence would necessarily occasion....

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 30 May 1842
PORT PHILLIP. We have Melbourne journals to the 26th &nbsp; May. The bushrangers so gallantly captured by a party of volunteers had, been doomed to finish their career upon the scaffold. A public dinner was to be given to the gentlemen who aided in their capture. It appears the bush rangers were in communication with an armed band of bushrangers at Geelong, and another at the Goulburn. It had been planned for the three bands to meet the very night after the aff ray took place at William's Town, in the neigh bourhood of which, they were to be concealed until an opportunity, offered of seizing a ves sel and leaving the Colony. A despatch had &nbsp; been received from his Honor C. J. LaTrobe, Superintendent, announcing that his Excel lency the Governor had received the memorial from Mr. Arden, (at present tin a visit to the Colony) and that his. Excellency has adjudged proper to remit the whole of the sentence in flicted uppn Mr. Arden by Judge Willis. The Seahorse had ...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY. JUNE 13. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 13 June 1842
THE LAUHCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, JUNE 13. Under ihe head of ' Contracts concerning the lending of money,' Paley has the following remarks, which bear upon ihe subject of usury, now beint; discussed by some of our contempo raries. We copy it for their information : — ' There exists no reason in the law of nature, why a man should not be paid for the lending of his money, as well as of any other property into which the money might be converted. ?? Tl:e scruples that have been entertained upon this head, and upon the foundation of which, the receiving of interest or usury (for they formerly meant the same thing) was once prohibited in almost all Christian countries, arose from a passage in the law of Moses, Deuteronomy xxiii. 19 20 : ' Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury; unto a stranger thou mayost lend upon usury ; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury.' 'This prohibition is now gene...
