THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, AUGUST 1, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 1 August 1842

THE UimESTOft COURIER. MONDAY, AUGUST I, 1842. The New Bill for regulating thesaleof Crown Lands in the Australasian Colonies, has been introduced into the House of Commons It varies but little from the measure communica ted to the House by Lord Stanley in the early nnrr. nf flip spssinn The preamble declares that it is expedient that an uniform system of disposing of the waste lands in the Australian Colonies should be established. The 2nd clause protects all waste lands in the Australian colonies from alienation except by way of sale : the 3rd clause excepts lands required for public uses, such, for example, 'as may be required for public roads or other internal communications, whether by land or water, or for the use or benefit of the aboriginal inhabitants of the country, or for purposes of military defence; or as the sites' of places of public worship, schools, or other public buildings, or as places for the interment of the dead, or places for the recreation and amusement of t...

Garden ? Do anything which has been neglected during the preceding month. The spring is now rapidly advancing, and vegetation has commenced. No time is now to be lost in planting out all trees, &c, which from whatever cause, have been forgotten. Prune raspberries and figs, which being plants of much pith, arc apt to die back from the nlace cut. if nruned in the early part of winter. Flower roots not previously planted, may now be put in the ground; if deferred to a later season, they never flower well. In general this will be found the best month to sow your main crop of onions, carrots, &c. ; they will by this means be large and strong to re sist the attacks of the grub in summer. Continue sowing peas and ordinary rotation crops, which ought to be done at all times, follow no book on this head. Rules made to suit the climate of Britain, will not suit that of Van Uiemen's Land.

THE NEW INSOLVENT ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 1 August 1842

THE NEW INSOLVENT ACT. We intended to have entered into a minute investigation of the New Insolvent Act, but the appearance of a,,shrewd and sensible article in the Examiner, written by a profes sional gentleman, has. saved us the trouble. We prefer giving place to his observations. Having inserted an abridgement of the Act in our last, the reader can easily understand the application of the following comments : — Section 16. The declaration of insolvency by an insolvent or a creditor has the effect of divesting from such insolvent and vesting in the assignee, all the real and personal estate of such insolvent; but it is by no means clear ac cording to the wording of this section, that a de claration of insolvency on tue petition of an ad ministrator would) have the -effect of vesting the. real -estates in the assignee. Indeed, in our* humble opinion, it 'would not have that effect. An; administrator lias control only over the personal; estate of the testator; and throughout the sec...

? 00 ? LONDON.— March 21. Corn Exchange — The demand for Wheat conti nues very limited, the few sales made are at about the same rates as Monday. Bonded Wheat has been offered on lower terms. 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. The abundant arrival of English Oals this week has completely paralysed the trade; so few transactions have taken place that prices are nominally the same, although a reduction would be submitted to effect sales to any extent.
