THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, JUNE 20. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 20 June 1842
THE LAUHCESTON COURIER. iMONDAY. JUNE 20. It is generally understood that the Legisla live Council will meet early in July ; but, ibe members have not yet been summoned, and no drafts of the acts intended to be in troduced have yet been published. The pub lic are anxiously expecting an amendment of the Insolvent Law, and the extension of the Court of Requests. Both these measures are of urgent importance. The extension of the Court of Requests, is required lo prevent the ruinous law ex penses, which accrue under the present sys tem. Not long since a person in this town was sued for a bill of fifteen pounds ; three summonses were issued at the same lime, and in less than three days the expenses were up wards of ten pounds. . This is a good speci men of the ruination occasioned by law ex penses. Many an unfortunate man has been driven to the Insolvent Court by these means. An amendment of the Insolvent Law is equally necessary, and cannot be too soon effected. We hope the drafts of bo...

INDIAN NEWS. AFFAIRS AT APPGHANISTAN. (From tlie Bengal Hnrltarw, 23r# February.) We have letters, from Colonel Wild's force near Peshawnr, reaching to tli*e 3rd instant, and we are sorry to gather from them, that sickness to an alarming extent had broken out in camp, there being no less than two or three hundred sick in each regiment. The Khyberries are suspected of having poisoned the waters. We give the following extracts : — Camp Koonslah, Feb. 3.— On the 1st hist., Lawrence rode out to Pollocks's Brigade, some where about Uttuk. It wotiid seem that his ex pedition has not been unsuccessful, foi to-day letters from Pollock's camp, mention that an intention to push on to Jellalabad is already whisi-ered ; and the following brigade morning order by Wild, would seem to glance at some thing of the same sort. ' In obedience to instructions received from Major-General Pollock, C.B., commanding tbe forces, commanding officers of regiments, and details, are directed to make a strict exa...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER MONDAY. JUNE 27. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 27 June 1842
THE LAUNCESTON COURIER MONDAY. JUNE 27. We re-published in our last the official regu lations for granting and selling Crown Lands issued during the years 1826-7-8. A corres pondent some time since promised to supply us with those issued prior to those dates ; but we have not yet had the pleasure of receiving them. The republication of these notices will be of much service to the Campbell Town Committee, and will greatly aid them in col lecting information relative to the quit-rents, before they finally decide upon (their course of proceeding. The evidence contained in these regulations proves conclusively that the Government have ?not the meansof estimating with any degree of accuracy, what amount of quit-rent is due by each party, and consequently are disabled from enforcing their claims. It is a question which deserves considera tion whether lands, which irave passed from the hands of the original grantee are liable to quit-rents ; the responsibility throughout the regulations is...
