WHAMPOA. Government House, Hongkong, 22nd March, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 18 July 1842
WHABirOA. Government House, Hongkong, 22nd March, 1842. Gentlemen, — You are aware that some or tne Hong merchants lately paid a visit to Macao, and it is probably by this time known to most of you, that the object of that visit was to find out whether the Provincial Government of Canton would be allowed to rebuild the Bogue and other dismantled forts, or to erect new ones, on this side of the Whampoa anchorage. Although I, of course, declined having any sort of intercourse with the Hong merchants, I took advantage of the kindness of a friend, to let. these individuals, know in distinct terms, that orders had been long issued, to prevent the repair of the old, or the erection of any new forts, lower down than Whampoa, and that the consequence of any attempt of the sort, would be the renewal of hos tilities in the Canton river, the stoppage of trade, and consequent distress to the Province and City. I trust this warning will have the desired effect, and that matters will be allowed t...

The' supply of Barley and Malt being very consider able, the trade for the former article is exceedingly dull, although lower prices would be accepted.

FRANCE—ENGLAND—SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 25 July 1842
FRANCE— ENGLAND— SPAIN. The Paris papers arc to a great extent occupied by discussions on die present state of Spanish affairs, and are pretty nearly unanimous in as cribing' to this country hostile and treacherous designs upon Spam, the seizure of her nest ports and fortresses, and other crimes, which, we need hardly 'sayj have jfoundation only in the preju diced and wilfully false imaginations and asser tions of her accusers'. Thus the National con cludes a long article on Spanish affairs. in the following terms, addressed to the French Min istry;— . ' '.- ?????.' ' ??? ? ??' '?Halt in 'Vour career!

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, JULY 25, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 25 July 1842
THE LAUNGESTON COURIER. . MONDAY, JULY 25, 1842. Two candidates are already in the field for the situation of official assignee contemplated by the new insolvent act. The public generally are opposed to such an appointment ; we regard it as an unnecessary curtailment of the privile ges of creditors, not authorised by experience. We cannot discover what is to be gained, and supposing the creditors lose. nothing but that right of choice which they have hitherto en joyed, why should even that something be lost for nottiing P The estate of an insolvent belongs of right to his creditors, and ought they not by the same' right have the option of electing its manager? But the act proposes to ' diveat them of this power and confer -the assignQeship of every, in solvent estate upon -tn official appointed by the government -And for what purpose ? Why seek to dispossess the creditors of the inherent right of doing as they please with their own ? Can it be out of regard to their interests? Is'it...

PORTLAND BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 25 July 1842
PORTLAND BAY. * We are glad to observe by a notice in the Melbourne Patriot,^ that a journal is about to be immediately established at iliis rapidly advan cing settlement. It is to be entitled 'the Portland Mercury and Nonnanby Advertiser;' the proprietors are Messrs. Kerrand Thompson of Port Phillip. A letter from the Rev. Mr. Wilson of Portland, addressed to a clergyman at Port Phillip, states, that immediately on hie arrival at Portland' Bay, all the mechanics' of the place volunteered a day's work, to assist in die -erection 'of a temporary church. Mr. Henty gave the use of a piece of ground far the purpose. The Rev. Mr. Wilson also states, that out of twenty females who went to Port land by idle Sally Ann, eleven were married to respectable mechanics' before the vessel left. The church erected under the above-mentioned circumstances, it appears by . the Rev. gentle man's statement, is much more commodious than' that at present in use in Melbourne. :
