MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 27 June 1842

MISCELLANEOUS. Beauty in a Wife. — A young man married a wife, whose oiily claim upon his regard was her personal beauty. She said to him at the end of one of their quarrels, ' You don't love me — -you cannot look me in the face, and say that you love me.' ' You mistake me, my dear/' cried he.: ' for it is only when I look you in the face that I can say that I love you.' Long Lease. — We remember seeing a bill in a shop-window at Faversham, which runs precisely thus : — ' These premises to let — on a lease, 151 feet in length.' Unsteady Reasoning. — Late one evening, Drunken Davy, after spending his day's earnings at a grocery, set out for home. ' Well,' says he, ' if I find my wife up, I'll lick her — what business has she to sit up, fire and light, eh ? and if I find her in bed, I'll lick her — what business has she to go to bed before I get home!' A Hint to the Tailors. — A boy's father (an Irishman on board a steamer on Lake Erie) had just put a patch upon the hinder part of his...

SOCIETIES FOR. PROMOTING CHRISTIAN KNOW LEDGE, AND PROPAGATING THE GOSPEL. The annual meeting of these Societies was held at St. John's Church, on Wednesday evening, Thomas lteibey, Esq. in the chair. The Report read by the Rev. W. L.

We regret that we have been unable to obtain a copy of the Report, but we shall endeavour to do so before our next publication. The meeting was not so numerously attended as .could have been desired, but the subscriptions collected were very liberal. Including 'the col lections on Sunday, the total amount received was upwards of £60. The following resolu tions were agreed to :— Moved by the Rev. Dr. Brown ; seconded by W. Henty, Esq. I ? Resolved,— That the report presented, be received and printed under the direction of the standing Com mittee. Moved 1-y the Rev. H.B.Davies-; seconded by J. P. Gell, Esq. J I — Resolved...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 27 June 1842

MISCELLANEOUS. National Characteristics. — It has been well said, by I know not whom, that an English man is never happy, but when he is miserable ; that a Scotchman is never at home, but when he is abroad j that an Irishman is never at peace, but when he is at war. An Extraordinary Fox Chase. — Not long ago, Mr. Caunter's hounds met near West Ogwell, where they quickly found (with a long tail) ; he made a short circuit and returned to his habitation ? the majority of the field still persist ing in it that 'twas a hare, whatever might come forth next. They were sooner halloo'd in again than a fellow halloo'd out — ' Tallyho, tallyho ! there he goeth !' On — on, on, on to Denbury ; thence to Woodland, through Broadhemstone, on to Staverton, down by the river Dart, which he crossed in view but a short distance from Dar Bridge, fortunately (the river not being fordable) for the field, who were more select than any other circumstance than hard running could have made 'em.

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 27 June 1842

SYDNEY. The Deborah, furnishes us with Sydney papers, to the 4th June. They contain but little matter of interest in addition to what has already been received by previous arrivals. The Municipal and Police Bills had met with more opposition than was anticipated, tbe public had protested against them, and they were undergoing a severe discussion in the Council ; the further consider ation of the Municipal Bill had been suspended for a week. The bodies of several of the unfor tunate people drowned by the upsetting of the Eliza had been found ; the evidence upon the inquest satisfactorily proved that the occurrence was purely accidental, and not in the least attrilu- table to carelessness or want of skill. The bush rangers were committing serious depredations in the country districts ; several hud been captured. Five out of ten prisoners proceeding from Berri ma to Pictoij, .^undcr charge, of two fotulables effected theit^ei&pe, apdltoofeo t#b|f|1j|A-ut were subsequently captu...
