MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 19 March 1842

MISCELLANY. DISCOVERY OF AN ISLAND OFF THlE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. — Captain Courtois, commanding the ship Adolphe, arrived at Nantes from Bourbon, gives the following particulars relative to the po- sition of an island observed during the voyage, and not hitherto laid down in the charts :—" On the 15th October, a sailor at the mast-head called to him that he fancied there was land in sight, a fact which seemed strange, since on the preceding day we had attained a more southerly latitude than that of the Cape des Aiguilles, in which direction we were. Having, however, made a very attentive observation, we were perfectly sen- sible of the presence of land. We had then the Cape bearing W. ¼ N.W., and were sailing with a wind from the S.S.E. The island seemed to run E.S.E. and W.N.W., at a distance of about eighteen miles. At seven we had it on the S W., fifteen miles off. At eight it bore S.S.E. ½ S., distant about twelve miles. At ten, we lost sight of it in the east. The island seems fo...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, March 19, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 19 March 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, March 19, 1842. THE colonies of New South Wales, South Australia, and the Cape, are each enforc- ing their claims for a Representative Go- vernment. They have justly concluded that a spontaneous concession of this in- estimable privilege is not to be silently anticipated. The colonies of Great Britain have long been considered as the resource of every class of statesmen having parti- sans to provide for, whom it would be dangerous to neglect, and otherwise diffi- cult to satisfy ; nor does it require much penetration to discover that political en- franchisement would contract that resource, and embarrass the patron with considera- tions of colonial policy, as well as party solicitations. Thus, without denying the abstract superiority of Representative Go- vernment, the colonial minister of any ad- ministration may be expected to postpone the question to the latest possible period, nor will he be induced to entertain it until constrained by the decided ...

EVIDENCE OF OUR SENSES. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 19 March 1842

EVIDENCE OF OUR SENSES.   There is nothing more misleading in   all philosophy than the commonly received opinion expressed by the phrase "evidence   ot our senses." It is made use of to express   the immediate knowledge of something   outside of and beyond ourself, of which one   or other of our senses takes cognisance. It   implies that our eyes see external bodies,   and know them by their colours and forms   — that hearing is a faculty of our ears, and sound an external something which our ears   hear. But what is the natural fact ? See- ing is not a faculty possessed by the eye-   balls, neither do our ears hear ; colour does not belong to anything material, nor has sound any existence outside of our mind.   Neither the world, nor anything belongingt   to it is to us visible ; its substance possesses nothing eve...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 19 March 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR, — The important subject of Irrigra- tion, so ably brought forward by Captain Cotton, will no doubt excite great interest. Many will conceive of it as the sovereign remedy for all agricultural evils (the brandy and salt of husbandry), and will turn away from the more onerous duties incumbent on every good farmer, in whatever country he may be placed, to reap, in imagination at least, a golden harvest from the purling stream. It is not my object in the slightest degree to detract from the great advantages attendant on irrigation, nor raise doubts in the minds of any respecting its utility, but to remind those who may be able to adopt it, that it should be applied in con- nexion with a perfect system of tillage ; that before they resort to so expensive an auxiliary, everything should be done to se- cure the prospect of a crop worthy the out- lay ; that land should be clean, in good heart, and in a due rotation of crop ; then will the power...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 19 March 1842

As many were disappointed in not being furnished with a copy of our first number, we reprint the leading article : — In proposing the establishment of another paper in Van Diemen's Land, it may be proper to state its principles and delineate its plan ; more than this would be superflu- ous : to apologise would be mere aflfecta- tion ; we expect — we ask no favour, unless our exertions to instruct and please appear to deserve it. A strong and general impression exists that the multifarious interests, increased population, and advancing influence of this town and neighbourhood, demand the esta- blishment of an additional newspaper : having aspired to fill the acknowledged va- cancy, we are resolved to maintain our po- sition with spirit and resolution, to win the confidence ia new undertaking can hardly he expected to command, and, while looking to the public as our only patrou, to recog- nize it as our only judge. The legitimate province of the press has long been settled and defined...
