TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 18 June 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR. — Your notice in the last number of the Examiner of obstructions in the road leading to the cataract ferry, induces me to point out the necessity for greater security from accident being provided for travellers passing that way. I am aware that the town-surveyor cannot attend to all suggestions that may be offered, and that much must be left undone relating to the streets and roads about the town that would be very benefi- cial ; but where danger is apparent, necessary improvement should be promptly made. The road leading past the mill to the punt is a narrow causeway open to the river, the bed of which lies ten or twelve feet below ; travelling towards the punt the passenger comes suddenly in view of the mill wheel, which if at work creates much noise, and dashes down a large body of water with great force ; or if the mill is not at work the sluice lets down a large stream which comes with an impulse of twenty feet fall, rushing and fo...

PROTECTION OF ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 18 June 1842

PROTECTION OF ABORIGINES. THE history of colonization is also, unhap- pily, a record of injustice and violence. To whatever shore the emigrant has turned his footsteps the original inhabitants have at first received him with hospitality and viewed him with wonder ; but subsequent intercourse has in every instance obliterated first impressions, and one act has followed another, retaliation has ensued, and peace has not been secured till the aboriginal in- habitants have been driven beyond the circle of European occupation, or, by suc- cessful sanguinary warefare, swept from the face of the earth. That the original occupants of territory,     taken possession of by more civilised por- tions of our race, are entitled to compensa- tion, is no longer a subject of debate. The British government, in establishing colonies in this hemisphere, has fully recognised the obligation to provide for the natural wants of the natives, and toameliorate his condi- &nbs...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR. — I have taken advantage of your widely circulated columns to suggest to the editor of the Chronicle the propriety of a greater degree of caution, in giving vent to what I suppose he con- ceives to be a "lucky guess" respecting the writer of the letter signed "Observer." That in the discharge of my official duties in connection with the Mechanics' Institute, I should be liable to the censure of that gentleman, was what I had every reason to expect ; but to be dragged before the public as the writer of a letter I never saw or heard of till it appeared in public print, is so unjust and unwarrantable an abuse of the liberty of the press, and of the privileges of an editor, that I felt it my duty to disabuse the minds — even of the small number who are likely to be influenced by anything emanating from that journal.

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 paintlf conclusion that the decline of our manufactures is not a transient or partial evil, but that it arises princilpally from foreign competition: and strong ground is furnished for app'rc betnding 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 successfiul effrts in trade and commerce; the power of Britain would be disgracefully exercised if, even to secure the commerce of the world, sIhe 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 daily...
