SUPREME COURT, HOBARTON. SITTINGS IN BANCO. Friday, May 27. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 11 June 1842

SUPREME COURT, HOBARTON. SITTINGS IN BANCO. Friday, May 27. Tetley v. Sherwin. — His Honor the Chief Justice remarked that, from the evidence on former trials, he could not see that Mr. Sherwin acted in any other capacity than as agent for the insurance company. He believed the case stood thus : Mr. Tetley applied to Mr. Sherwin to insure his vessel, and previous to the time of the vessel being lost Mr. Tetley enquired of Mr. Sherwin if he had effected the policy. Now up to the time of the vessel being lost, he (his Honor) could not see that any contract had been made. The insurance company might have refused to have given up the policy until the premium had been paid ; and as there was not any contract made up to the time of the vessel being lost, there could not be after : therefore he considered the party not entitled to the document. His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu said, that at the time the trial came before him he plainly told the jury there was no evi- dence to justify the beli...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 11 June 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR. — I am glad to find that the Northern Agri- cultural Association is likely to be called again into operation ; and would suggest, as calculated to give it interest and permanence, that it should take up more generally the consideration of agri- cultural science. The Van Dicemen's Land asso- ciations have nearly confined their attention to improvement in live stock : this is a defect that ought to be remedied ; the agricultural associations and farmer clubs at home should be our models. You can, perhaps, find space for a few observa- tions on the subject of agricultural improvements, which I shall divide into two classes — those that pertain to the land owner, and those which de- volve on the occupier. It will be evident that works of a permanent character, involving a con- siderable outlay of capital, and the effects of which go on far beyond the usual term of a lease, are of the first kind, and should be performed by the the landlord. ...

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 of treasury bills, by a weekly issue, will render their price less capricious ; and that the regula- tions of the Commissariat will allow the payment of one-half in dollars, instead of requiring, as heretofore, the whole in Bri- tish silver. The affixing a legal value to dollars, the coinage of other states, in this colony, was one of those meddling measures to which all governments are prone, and which are ever productive of difficulties ; an act rendered more vexatious by a refusal at the treasury of a currency all traders are compelled to admit. 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...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 11 June 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR. — The inhabitants of Launceston have now the pleasing satisfaction of having a Mechanics' Institution in full operation amongst them ; and the question as to whether it will continue to flourish or not, depends entirely upon the coun- tenance and support which they may be willing to afford it. I believe that no one in this enlightened age would for a moment deny the utility of mechanics' institutes, either as a means of instruction, a source of enjoyment and reereation, or as a preventive of those vices and follies in which many of the working classes are too prone to in- dulge during their unoccupied hours. Since such advantages have invariably resulted from the establishment of mechanics' institutes at home, we may certainly calculate that as great or even greater benefits shall be derived from that which has been recently formed in this town ; and it is a matter of surprise as well as regret that such an institution should not long b...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 11 June 1842

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE, Last Tuesday evening Dr. Paton delivered an eloquent address "on the right objects and method of a modern education." The inclemency of the weather prevented many from attending, but the lecture room was tolerably well filled. The Rev. Charles Price was called to the chair, and intro- duced the lecturer to the meeting. A correspondent has furnished us with the fol- lowing outllne of the lecture :— " The lecturer introduced the subject by making a few observations upon the nature and faculties of man. His faculties, he observed, might be di- vided into three classes — the moral, or those means by which we have perceptions of right and wrong ; the intellectual, or those means by which we are enabled to cultivate the arts and sciences and carry on the common concerns of life ; and the animal, or those which we possess in common with the brute creation. These, he observed, were seldom equally distributed in the same individual ; but that one or other of them would ...
