THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, JULY 4 [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 4 July 1842

THE UUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, JULY 4 Fobstbe is out of the quasi Legislature. The Courier says Le resigned twelve months ago. Dont believe a word of it. The facts are these : Sit John appointed him and tvent to the Down ing-feireet autocrat for -confirmation; A state ment appeared in ihe' Local .and English prints that sucii an appointment vcat contrary to law; an Act of Parliament -expressly declares'llia't no Stipendiary Magistrate sh'all' set in Parlia ment, or even vote for a Member. The officials decree^ that this 'principle extends lo the Colo nies, anil the Chief Police Magistrate was quite astonished at the result. So much for the re signation.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 4 July 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. Sir, . The following objection has been frequently urged, that alcohol it the product of nature, and therefore a good creature of God, and ought to be received with thanksgiving in opposition to one of the fundamental principles of the arcat temperance reformation. I think, Mr. Editor, the fallacy of this proposition admits of ready proof, it having been ascertained for certainly, that throughput the wide spread kingdom of animal and vegetable nature, not a particle of alcohol, in any form or combination whatever, has been found, as the effect of a single living process; but it arises out of the decay, the dissolution, and the wreck of organized matter. The name of al cohol in the present day, Is exclusively applied to the spirit or intoxicating liquor, contained in all fermented drinks. ? Alcohol ; was formerly supposed to be the gen. erical product of distillation. It is acknowledged, that distillation separates it only' from fermented liqu...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY. JULY 11. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 11 July 1842

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY. JULY 11. Arrivals at Hobart Town have put us in pos session of English papers to tbe middle of March. We have elsewhere inserted copious - extracts therefrom. Our columns could not be occupied with more interesting matter. The papers are of course nearly filled with parliamentary reports, of which we have taken but little notice, being of slight interest to the Colonial reader. The Corn Law question had created an immense excitement throughout England ; petitions were presented pro and con, not by dozens, but literally by hundreds. The Ministry had obtained a majority in all die na lious, and there was but little doubt that the Bill would .pass with very trifling alterations. The tories were increasing in strength in the Commons, and their ability to maintain office against the opposition parties was no longer a matter of doubt. The report that Ministers intended to intro duce some grand scheme of emigration is con tradicted. Six prison -ships were la...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 11 July 1842

ENGLISH NEWS. The Long Lost Pbbbident. — It is supposed from the following extract from the log book of the brig Po'ulttuy, Cptain James Moult, of Baltimore, that the hull of ' this long lost steamer has at last been seen: — ^'July 21, 11 a. m., lat. 24 21 N., long. 39 10 Wv trom JNew York tor Smyrna, passed a large piece of wreck, 60 feet long, 30 to 40 wide, and looked like tbe broadside of a steam boat. It appeared to be part of the main channels, having four dead eyes, with turned mouldings, and long flat iron strapB. Her hull was black, with a broad white streak, and large black ports. There was a bite of hauser over a niece of wood, apparently part of the guards.' Tlie ill-fated President was seen both here and in Liverpool by the chief mate of the Poultney, and he unhesitatingly says that tbe wreck passed was part of that steam ship. Every thing about the wreck plainly showed, from their great size and Manufacture, that they belonged, not to any merchant vessel or man of war,...
