POETRY A poetical Letter of condolence. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 13 June 1842
POETRY. A poetical Letter of condolence. FniEKD. Permit me to condole with you, Ypon your sudden loss ; Advice, unask'd, yet deign to take, — Thank Heav'n it is no worse. 'l'is true you have a Lover lost ; What does that signify ?; Come listen to me, but first. That tear, wipe fiom thine eye. ?She is unworthy of a sigh, Unworthy of a I ear 4 I'or she nought but a jilt, to all The world, will now appear. Sincerely, she did never love ; , Hut feign'd, what she ne'er Celt ; She never heav'd ont 7ieartfelt sigh, Fickle, inconstant, jilt. Then, grieve not, Thou, for her lost love, *Tis better lost, than gain'd ; Her looks are false, her vows untrue. Then let her's be disdain'd. 'Tis possible — some Male Coquet, Influenc'd with too much wine; Scare knowing, what he said or thought, Hath worship'd at Her Shrine. She, thinking Him to be sincere, Tho' God knows, 'twas not so ; Car'd not, how much she stung thy heart. So she be freed from you. Perhaps some Alan, who wants a nurse, To tend Khe...

To my horror, she was a perfect beauty ; possi'ssinp: a sweet countenance, with an exquisite form.

COLOR AS INFLUENCING THE HEALTH OF ANIMALS AND PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 13 June 1842
COLOR AS INFLUENCING THE HEALTH OF AN IMALS AND PLANTS. It is a chemical axiom that black surface not only absorb but part with heat more quickly than the white; and hence the well-known healthier state of black men then white men in hot coun tries, from tbeir dark skins enabled their bodies to be more readily cooled when over-heated by ex ertion, and thus preventing tebrile action ensuing. It is for the same reason that white-haired an imals caunot perform the same amount of labour as dark, even in the cool climate of England ; also, even white feet and hoof's are accounted blemishes, from the greater liability of these to inflammatory disease. Such considerations, how ever, weigh stronger in the Australian colonies, where the temperature is so much greater, conse quently making the working Aalue of dark-haired animals still higher there than in England. But the greater proneness to discease in light than in dark colored animals extends also to vege tables, showing also that they h...
