GREAT MIDLAND MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 18 June 1842

GREAT MIDLAND MEETING. THE great conference of manufacturers of   the midland counties was convened on   Thursday, 9th December, at Derby. The large room of the Lancasterian Institution   was crowded to excess by the wealthiest   manufacturers and traders of Derby, Bel-   per, Leicester, Harborough, Loughborough,   and Nottingham. Fourteen representatives   of the press were present from London and the provinces. John Heard, Esq., of Not- tingham, one of the most extensive manu- facturers of the midland districts, was called to the chair amidst loud and general acclamations. He said they were met to   consider the effect produced by the corn and provision laws on the manufacturing interests and trade of the midland coun- ties. W. Biggs, Esq., a large manufacturer of Leicester, moved the first resolution : "That the manufactures of the midland dis- tricts have for several years bee...

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 8,390,540 lbs., being 220,000 lbs. less than the previous year. COOKING BY 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, fowls, 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 less 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 hot as the cook may find necessary, and extinguished the instan...

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

CABUL.   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 confirmed by the last news fron 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 Mohamed Ukhbar Khan was more intent upon making terms in his own especial favour than comported with the general desire of the insurgent chieftains. To correct such an impression, Ukhbar Khan, it is said, determined on the murder of Sir William M'Naughten, whom he treacherously invited to a conference without the camp, at a spot indicated, and whereto both parties repaired. Sir William was shot dead with a pistol suddenly fired at him by Ukhbar Khan, Captain Trevor was cut down by the Affghans, and Cap-   tains Lawrence...

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

LATEST INDIAN INTELLIGENCE. We have been politely favoured with the Calcutta Englishman of 18th March. The troops destined for Affghanistan were assembling at Peshawar, and would march 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 Affghans. — There had been a mutiny in some of the Madras regiments, which had, however, been promptly put down. Lord Ellenborough, the new Governor-General had arrived, and taken upon himself the duties of his offlice. It is expected he will energetically carry out the plans of Lord Auckland in reference to Affghanistan. On the 10th March farewell addresses were presented to the late Governor-General, the Earl of Auckland. His retirement is generally regretted. Lord Auckland held his farewell levee on the 17th March. It is proposed to erect a statue of his lord- ship in London. — Dost Mahomed is kept in the s...

REPLY. Government House, 7th June, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 18 June 1842

REPLY. Government House, 7th June, 1842. GENTLEMEN — I have received with feelings of the highest gratification your address of congratulation on my safe return, and that of Lady Franklin, from my late journey to Macquarie Harbour. Although the difficulties and dangers to which we have been exposed have, in all probability, been magnified by that benevolent spirit and humane solitude which have been so generally evinced throughout the community, I beg to assure yon that I am not the less grateful for the sympathy which has been expressed by your dis- trict. For that expression, and for the terms of kind- ness in which your address is couched, I beg to tender the sincere thanks of Lady Franklin and myself, and I have the honor to be, Gentlemen, Your most obedient humble servant, (Signed) JOHN FRANKLIN. To G. S. Davies, Esq., Chairman, } and the other inhabitants of } George Town. } G. S. DAVIES, Chairman.

PROPOSED PLAN FOR THE BETTER TREATMENT OF THE ABORIGIEES 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 complaint, that no efficient means have been adopted to restrain the predatory habits of the aborigines. At the same time it is universally admitted that unless these are restrained, and the colonists furnished with a reasonable guarantee for the security of their persons and property, the resources of the country 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 produced a scarcity of those plants and animals which constituted the staple articles of their subsistence; and this view is confirmed by the fact that the depredations of the aborigines have been hitherto committed with the sole...

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

MISCELLANEOUS. Murder Committed by the Natives of one of the South Sea Islands. — The brig Martha, Captain Nichols, which sailed from Sydney on the 20th March last, for the South Sea Islands, having ar- rived at one of the Loyalty Islands, Captain Nichols, Mr. Henry Thompson, supercargo, Robert Milburn, second officer, Thomas Abbott, and Henry Bushnott, seamen, went on shore in a whale boat, for the purpose of trading with the natives, the vessel lying off about three-quarters of a mile fronm the shore. We understand that the captain missed a handkerchief out of his pocket, which was supposed to have been taken by one of the natives, and some dispute arose from this cause ; an immediate attack was made by them, which ended in the murder of the un- fortunate captain and two of the seamen, the sa- vages spearing their bodies in numerous places.   It is also reported that the captain was afterwards eaten by them. Mr. Thompson and the other seamen were making towards the bo...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, June 18, 1842. BRITISH CORN LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 18 June 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, June 18, 1842. BRITISH CORN LAWS. The accounts we extract from the English papers, corroborate by their details the general statements of commercial distress which have already appeared in our co- lumns ; and establish the painful conclusion that the decline of our manufactures is not a transient or partial evil, but that it arises principally from foreign competition : and strong ground is furnished for appre- hending that the markets once exclusively our own, will be permanently divided, if not wholly engrossed by continental manu- facturers. It would be folly to blame the enterprise of other countries, or to look with stupid envy on their successful efforts in trade and commerce ; the power of Britain would be disgracefiully exercised if, even to secure the commerce of the world, she stained her flag by oppressing rivals. But the citizen naturally enquires, why when England possesses capital machinery and labour, more than other nations, they are da...
