SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 8 August 1842

SYDNEY. The William furnishes us with papers to the 26th July. We subjoin a summary of general news. The Legislative Council was to assemble ou 26th. A petition had been nu merously signed for an extension of the juris diction of the Court of Requests to £30. There will be i sale of Government juand at 1 ort Phillip, on the 18th October. Stock was ad vancing in 'price at Sydney ; a flock of 3,000 sheep bad been sold at 8s. 6d. per head. On the 13th the sentence of the Court was passed on Colonel Snodgrass, for endeavouring to excite a gentleman of the name of King to fight a duel. The gallant Colonel was fined £100. The Solicitor-General for the prose cution, in his address to the Court, commented eloquently on the absurd and criminal prac tice of duelling, which he observed was much on the decline, and that a powerful portion of the English Press had commenced a de termined crusade against it. The learned gentleman's speech was said to be one of the most finished, eloquent, and eff...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 8 August 1842

NEW ZEALAND. We extract the following account of the Wreck of the Schooner Look-in, formerly be longing to Mr. Lukin of this town, from the Nelson Examiner. On Sunday morning, June 12th, at daylight, the Look-in, which had arrived a few days pre viously from Cloudy Bay, with loss of anchors and cables, having'suffered damage by being on shore, was discovered on the bank to the westward of Bolton Roads. She had drifted out from the haven in the night, where she had been riding by a small hawser. Six of tbe crew had left her in the boat, and landed on a part of the bank which was dry, and were taken off by Cross's pilot boat. Mr. Carkeek, the Collector of Cus toms, immediately went off in his whale-boat with an anchor and hawser, and passed through a heavy surf on the bank to the Look-in, from which hie took five of the cre'w, leaving the master and two others on board, his boat not being able to carry more, and got out safely with them. After leav ing1 them ou board one of the ships ...

The wheat market remains quiet; few transactions have coma to our knowledge since our last. The fact of another vessel with a cargo of wheat, having arrived at Sydney, hai damped the ardour of some who intended to have speculated fn corn for that market. It is re ported the merchants at Port Jackson have entered into cztensive contracts for wheat of next year's growth, to be shipped from Valparaiso. Good working bullocks are still in demand. Other stock are dull of sale. No alteration in the general market.

HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 15 August 1842

HORSES. Good keep and good management strangely improves the appearance of even the naturally poorest breed of horses. The ponies of Shetland, the diminutive steeds of China, or the small Ti mor ponies, when bred on rich pastures, rapidly increase in size. The fleet-horses imported from Arabia, do the same although they degenerate from that speed so remarkable in the pure Ara bian. The best method of feeHing horses, espe cially those belonging to a farm, is a question highly interesting to the farmer. Many are the substances employed for this purpose, such as oats, oatmeal, barley, bran, beans, peas, potatoes, tur nips, carrots, parsnips, hay, cinque-foil, clover, rye-grass, straw, grams, and other pulse ; bruised gorse or furze is excellent. The oats are best given when bruised, the potatoes should be steamed, and mixed with chaff and salt; hay and straw are economically cut into chaff. ? The modern system in the London Stables, is never to put hay into racks, and in those cele bra...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 15 August 1842

MISCELLANEOUS. How to Acquire Knowledge. — A Persian philosopher, being asked by what method he had acquired so much knowledge, answered, 'by not being prevented by shame from asking questions where I was ignorant.' Bouquets at Night. — At a recent lecture at the Royal Institution, the fact was stated that flowers during the day gave out oxygen gas, which supports life, and that during tne night they emitted carbonic acid gas, one of the most (de leterious and poisonous gases known. The head aches, and, other aches, usually following balls, &c., where it is now the fashion for the ladies to display large bouquets, may be caused by the gas emitted. A kind refusal is sometimes as gratifying as a bestowal : he who can alleviate the pain of an ungracious act is unpardonable unless he do so. . Mdxdaii Support.. — The race of mankind would perish, did they,. cease to aid each other. From the time that the mother binds .the child's head, till the moment that some kind assistant wip...
