MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 11 June 1842
lECI-IANICS' INSTITUTE, Last Tuesday evening D,. Paton delivered an eloquent address "on the right olbjects and method of 'a modern education." The inclcmency of the weather prevented many from attending, but the lecture room was tolerably well tilled. The Rev. Charles Price was called to the chair, and illtro duced the lecturer to the mceting. A correspondent has furnished us with the fol. lowing outline ofthe lecture : "The lecturer introduced the suliccetby making a few observations upon the nature tand ficultles of' man.

TREASURY BILLS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 11 June 1842
TREASURY BILLS. Persons who are so fortunate as to have money for transmission to creditors so happy as not to expect remittances in vain, will be glad that the distribution oftreasury bills, by a weekly issue, will render their price less capricious ; and that the regula tions of the Conmmissariat will allow the payment of one-half in dollars, instead of requiring, as heretofore, the whole in Bri tish silver. The antixing a legal value to dollars, the coinage of other states, in this colony, was one of those medtlling measures to which all governments are lprone, and which are ever productive of ditliculties; an act rendered more vexatious by a refusal at the treasury of a currency all traders are compelled to admlit. The merchant is still embarrassed by the difficulty of obtaining an equal pro portion of British silver. His claims on the bank, it is entitled to meet in dollars : and though in the colonial currency he might command a thousand pounds, it. would not infallibly secure...
