THE LAU®CESTON COURIER. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 1. By the Ullstoater we have Swan River papers to the 2nd January. The settlement is de cidedly progressing. The foundation stone of the first church, at Perth, was laid in the presence of the Governor, and a large assemblage of the inhabitants on New Year's day. The corner stone of a new Wesleyan Chapel had also been laid at the same place. This looks well for the spread of morality at the Swan, a commodity which we 'have been given to understand was, till lately remarkably scarce. At the half yearly meeting of the Bank proprietors, the chairman laid the usual returns upon the table, by which it appeared that the circulation had encreased twenty -five per cent., and the deposits about seventeen per cent. The amount of specie had diminished eleven per cent., and the securities had encreased twenty per cent A dividend 12s per share was declared ?on the half year.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 8 February 1841
TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER SIR, — Although I see that Mr. Underwood has paid me a compliment in his letter to the Editor of the Corn wall Chronicle, relative to Mr. Nicolson and Mr. Dry's affair, still you will be at no loss to perceive the end he has in view any more than I am. Doubtless he quotes the manner in which I was employed at Fort Fairy as another of the very many contemptible means be has bad recourse to, in order to throw all tbe false colours he can upon the situation in which Mr. Nicol son was placed when I arrived in this place. Mr. 'Underwood, however, need not have gone so far back for particulars, by which he introduced me to the public, as it is now upwards of two years since 1 became a partner in an extensive stock establishment in the quarter Mr. Underwood alludes to; this may not add much to my consequence; but, should I really be a per son of distinction, and were I placed in a situation where the better I succeeded in making black appear to be wh...

CHINA. The following is a proclamation (abridged from the Canton Press,) prescribing solitary con finement, as a means of punishment for getting rid of the abominable habit of smoking opium into which the greater part of the Chinese po pulation have fallen. ' Yu, acting Kwang Chow Foo, hereby isssues this clear and distinct proclamation, that all may know and understand: — ' Whereas tbe law prohibiting the use of opium has already been published for two years, yet tbe evil habit is far from being eradicated ; and through the district mandarins have seized numbers, and immediately after apprehension proceeded to try and punish them, yet (it must be confessed) the numbers thus taken are still rery few, while the greater part of the evil-doers escape the net of the law altogether 1 j ' ? If we permit tbe people to continue smoking for a single day, then the sale of and traffic in opium roust daily continue,' all of which regulations have been pointedly' discussed.
