A LARGE FACT, AND YET A FACT. — The difference of the earth's distance from the sun, between the apogee and the perigee of the lattcr, that is, when it is farthest off, or nearest to the earth, 3,200,000 miles, In this country the sun is in apogee, or far- thest off about the 1st of July, and in peri- gee, or nearest the earth, on the last day of December. If then, on the 1st of July, a cannon ball should be discharged from the earth in a right line to the sun, and go at the rate of 500 miles per hour, yet the earth, proceeding in her accustomed orbit, would be nearer than the cannon ball to the sun at the last day of December by 1,000,000 miles. — New York American

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 18 June 1842

SYDNEY. In the year 1841, thirty-five vessels, of the aggregate burthen of 2074 tons, were built in the colony. This gives an average of nearly sixty tons for each vessel. The quantity of wool exported in the year 1841, was 8,300,0540 lbs., being 220,000 lbs less than the previous year. CooKINo nv GAs.-On the Queen's birth day, after the levee, a party of gentlemen, consisting of some of the directors and their friends, met at the gas works, to test the efliciency of the apparatus for cooking by gas. An excellent luncheon, turkey, ducks, owls, round of beef, with a due proportion of vegetables, the whole cooked in the gas kitchen-ranges, afforded ocular and palat able demonstration that gas is not lcss valu able in the oven than in the lamp. The viands, both roast and boiled, were done to perfection. One great convenience of this method of cooking is, that the fire is lit the moment it is' wanted, made more or less ho't as the cook may find necessary, aid oxtinguislied the instant i...

LATEST INDIAN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 18 June 1842

LATEST INDIAN INTELLIGENCE. We have been politely favoured with the Calcutta ,Englishlman of 18th March. The troops destined for Afllghanistan were assembling at Peshawar, and would m.narch as soon as the season would permit the commencement of operations.--A number of the officers and men who es caped the general massacre at Jugdulloch still existed, although in the hands of the Alfghans.--There had been a mutiny in some of the Madras regiments, which had, however, been promptly put down.

CABUL. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 18 June 1842

CA II UL. The melancholy fate of Sir Alexander Burnes and other British officers, who in our paper of 16th April were said to have been killed, is now confirmnted by the last news from India: while intelligence of a series of brutal atrocities perpetrated by the rebellious natives on the British troops has at the same time reached the colony. Negotiations having been set on foot be tween the confederates and our minister, suspicion arose that Mahomed Ukhbar Klhan was more intent upon making terms in his own especial favour than cormported with the general desire of the insurgent chlieftains. To correct such an impression, Ukhbar Khan, it is said, determined on the murder of Sir William M'Natuglhten, wlhom ihe treacherously invited to a conferencee without the camptl, at a spot indicated, and whereto both parties relpaired. Sir William was shot dead with a pistol suddenly fired at hitnm by Ukhbar Khan, Captain T'revor was cut down by the Afllhans, and Cap tains Lawrence and Conolly w...

PROPOSED PLAN FOR THE BETTER TREATMENT OF THE ABORIGINES OF AUSTRALIA FELIX, BY JOHN HUNTER PATTERSON, OF MELBOURNE, PORT PHILLIP.—JUNE 7, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 18 June 1842

PROPOSED PLAN FOR THE BETTER TREATMENT OF THE ABORIGINES OF AUSTRALIA FELIX, BY JOHN HUN TER PATTERSON, OF MELBOURNE, PORT PHILLIP.-JUNE 7, 1842. Although much has been done by the govern. ment and enterprise of individuals to advance the interests of this colony, it is a matter of general comtlaint, that no efficient means have been adopted to restrain the predatory habits of the aborigines. At the samei time it is universally admitted that unless these are restrained, and the colonists furnished with a reasonable guarantee fbr the security of their persons and property, tile resources of the colntry can neither be fully nor speedily developed. It now appears to be established beyond the reach of dispute, that the extensive occupation of the territory has prodluced a scarcity of those plants and animals which constitutedl the staple articles of their subsistence; and this view is confirmed by the fact that the depredations of the aborigines have been hitherto conlmitted with the so...
