POETRY. SMILES AND TEARS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 1 August 1842

FOETSV. SMILES AND TEARS. A smile may illumine the lip full of woe, A nd a (car dim Ihe merriest eye, And sorrow may banish the smiles as they glow, But the tears, Love will faithfully dry. And there shines tint an eve, howe'er mirthful its beam. Kor which Fate has no tear drop distilled. And there sorrows no heart, howe'er mournful it seem. Whose gladness for ever is chilled. As the rainbow its iris-hucd glory displays, When storm-clouds are fleeing the sky, Oft the brightest of smiles to the laughing lip strays, When the tears Iinve just shaded the eye. Then mourn not that sadness o'ersliadows tny brow, By joy but forsaken awhile, But remember each tear— though so bitter its floir, — Is the herald to usher a smile.'

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER MONDAY, AUGUST 8, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 8 August 1842

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER MONDAY, AUGUST 8, 1842. We suggest ibe insertion of a clause in the Insolvent net, providing punishment for any insolvent trafficking with his crcditors'property. Il happens occasionally that the insolvent is left in possession of his effects l-y the assignee, and it lias occurred at yon runup that a person so unlrustcd tool; upon himself to exchange several articles of great value for others of much less worth. This is no fraud according to the act ; there is no punishment for such trafficking — it was a mere commercial transaction, and although the creditors were the sufferers, it was alleged to be through the insolvent's want of judgment, not want of honesty. Strange to say, after the insolvent obtained his discharge, bis judgment brightened up, and brooming suddenly alive to ihe blunder lie had committed in parting with property so much below its value, he stipulated with his friend for a re-exchange, and upon re turning him the trifling worth of his poods...

At a very numerous meeting of members of the Royal Geographical Society, Colonel Gaw ler, the late Governor of South Australia, being called upon by the chairman, proceeded to give an account of the .slate .and condition of that colony. He stated, that his leisure had not permitted his writing a paper upon the subject which he was then about to communicate; which he should, howevei, give in detail. The tracts or features of the country he then pro ceeded to describe under the four following de positions : — 1. Sandy tracts. Bounded by mountains of sand of 100 or 200 miles in length, and generally of 120 to 140 feet in height; very difficult of ascent, on account of the prickly gnus and other shrubbery with which they are thickly covered.

MUTUAL INTERESTS .OF ENGLAND AND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Out of every hundred foreign vessels which enter the ports of the United States of America, above eighty are from the United Kingdom and its dependencies, the number in 1836 having been 3510 (£44,774 tonnage), and from all other coun tries 611. Nearly 1000 vessels' sail yearly direct from the United Kingdom to the United States, and about 800 arrive direct in our ports under their star-spangled banner. The ships from our shores are chiefly freighted with manufactured goods, and the aggregate value of their cargoes is about JE9,000,000 annually. ' In 1838 the United States took more than any other country of our woollens, linens, silks, -hardwares and cutlery, wrought and unwrought iron and steel, and several other articles ; and we send them annually about one-sixth of our exported produce and manufac tures.
