MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 11 June 1842

MISCELLANY.     DEATH NOT A PAINFUL PROCESS. — It has been observed that many commit suicide from the notion that death from natural causes is attended with considerable agony. This is the generally received notion, but it is a very erroneous one. Those who have often witnessed the act of dying allow that it is not a painful process. In some delicate and irritable persons, a kind of struggle is sometimes excited when respiration becomes difficult ; but more frequently the dying obviously suffer nothing, and express no uneasiness. Those who die of chronic diseases, the graduation is slow and distinct. Consumptive patients are sometimes in a dying state for several days ; they appear at such times to suffer little, but to languish for complete dissolution ; nay we have known them express great uneasiness when they have been recalled from the com- mencement of insensibility, by the cries of their friends, or the efforts of the attend- ants to alleviate pain.

CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 11 June 1842

CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE. What is a Chamber of Commerce ? — A society of mercantile men, formed for the purpose of farthering and increasing com-     merce, for watching the progress of trade with firmness and integrity, protecting those less experienced from the cunning of peo- ple who profess honesty but deal in deceit, to examine carefully into the wants and the productions of all other nations and coun- tries, and to frame from this knowledge a proper plan for ordering or bartering such goods in exchange for those which are pro- duced in the country. These constitute the outlines to satisfy the charge reposed in such body as connected with other coun- tries. The second part is the domestic duty, which has tle following offices to per- form. In a country where trials by jury in civil cases are not yet introduced, it is a matter of great importance to have a board, which can, from daily experience, enquire into and adjudge cases of a mercantile na- ture, with...

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

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIa.-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 pecrmanence, that it should take up more generally the consideration of agri cultural science. The Van Diemen's Land asso ciations have nearly confined their attention to improvement in live stock : this is n defect that ought to be remedied ; the agricultural associations atid farmer clubs at home should be our models. You can, perhaps, find space for a few observa tions on the subject of agricultural improvenients, which I shall divide into two classes-those that pertain to the land owner, and those which dc volve on the occupier. It will be evident that works of a permanent eharacter, inlolvillng 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 perfirmed by the the landlord. The te...

COLONIAL JURIES. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 11 June 1842

COLONIAL JURIES. THE language ascribed to Mr. Justice Montagu by the Hobart Town reporters, is calculated either to destroy all confidence in colonial jurors, or to subtract from that public respect which is not more honour able to the bench, than important to soci- ety. We do not imagine that the gentle men who sat in the cause of Tetley v. Sherwin require a vindication from the press: although their characters were less known, public opinion would have pro- tected them, in the discharge of their duty; however reckless and unguarded the im- putations of the judge. They were sworn to administer justice under the guidance of their consciences : that their decision is satisfactory to the community we know : their honesty in adopting it can only be estimated by the Supreme and all-seeing Judge. We have a right to assume, and so had his honor, that the verdict they pronounced resulted from conviction, and that, in resisting the opinion of the judges, they were controlled by the obligati...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, June 11, 1842. VAN DIEMEN'S LAND COMPANY. THn liberal and encouraging offers pub lished by the Circular Head Company will doubtlessdraw general attention and in duce many industrious and enterprising im migrants to become its tenanuts. Achange of ministry is usually followed by a change of measures; and the plans adopted by thle present agent will brighten tile prospects of the company, which have been so long blighted by disappointmenmtt. wVe have no doubt that the supercession I of the late manager was politic and just; e but the unlimited abuse which followed him at his departure, might have been f checked by a perception of his early difli culties. If we might venture to trace the b failure of his administration to its real f' causes, we should certainly ascribe it in i part to the too magnificent expenditure of the company at the outset, and the foolish a attemnpt to sccu'e all the facilities of a British town for a settlement just gained b frorn ...
