A CHAPTER ON LOVE AND MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 25 June 1842

A CHAPTER ON LOVE AND MARRIAGE. " Hail, wedded love !" sang the " old man eloquent," and the beautiful, the sub- lime apostrophe, will be echoed while there are glancing eyes and breathing hearts in this stirring world. There is not a desire implanted in the heart of man by the Al- mighty, of which he forbids us the gratifi- cation. " Oh don't get married, don't, if you take a friend's advice," exclaims old bache- lor Spindleshanks, just turned forty-five, with his umbrella tucked under his arm in one of the driest of our late September days, his hat, coat, and breeches neatly brushed down, and an exquisite tie on his neckcloth, which cost him half an hour be- fore he ventured out, while not a hair on his smoothed forehead can be seen out of place, not a crease from head to foot, not a dimple, except on his sunken cheek, when a gracious, yet withall, a ghastly smile plays thereon " And wherefore, Mr. Spindle- shanks, may we not get married ? Why do you never venture on the street un...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE " GEELONG ADVERTISER." A FIGHT BETWEEN THE BLACKS. Ion Court, Geelong, June 4, 1842. SIR. — I have to state to you the parti- culars of an affray which took place last Tuesday night, the 31st instant, the par- ticulars of which are as follow:— " On the evening above-mentioned, two parties of aborigines encountered each other within a mile and a half of my station, part of the Barrabool Hill natives and part of the Mount Rouse tribe, who immediately gave battle, but were defeated with the loss of three men and two unfortunate young fe- males. On the Wednesday morning the few natives immediately belonging to my neighbourhood arrived bearing this intelli- gence, evidently in a great state of excite- ment, and dreadfully afraid to return to their encampment without the protection of myself and servants, who were to be well armed. Directly after breakfast, I started, accompanied by the natives to within a short distance of their huts, where they all re- mained, and I...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 25 June 1842

SYDNEY. THE head-quarters of the 28th regiment will be removed to India by the John Brewer. — The Arab and Kelso had been chartered for the conveyance of the re- mainder of the troops. — A drunken sol- dier snapped a loaded musket at Major Messiter, but fortunately the piece was so much out of order as to miss fire. The man would of course be tried by a court martial for the offence, which is capital. — A piracy was said to have been commit- ted by the officers and crew of the Water- witch, London whaler, they having, on the 23rd March last, while lying-to off Howe's Island, and during the absence of the cap- tain (Mr. W. Christie) on shore, sailed from the island, leaving their commander and his boat's crew to shift for themselves. This is one version of the affair, as deposed to on affidavit by the deserted party ; though the causes which led to so novel and, in any way, so unjustifiable a step on the part of the oflicers and crew, do not appear on the face of the documentary evid...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 25 June 1842

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. Intelligence to 3rd February, has reached the colony by the way of Port Phillip. On that day, parliament was opened by the Queen in person. The following is the report from the papers. — Her Majesty proceeded in state to-day to open the session of parliament. The day was gloomy, and one of those exclusively London fogs, which turn day into night, at one time threatening to envelope the me- tropolis ; but, although the day could at no time be considered a fine one, it lightened up considerably in the afternoon. There were considerable crowds assem- bled on the way leading from Buckingham Palace to the royal entrance to the House of Lords ; the guards and police, as on for- mer similar occasions, lined the way. The presence of the King of Prussia gave to this day's ceremony additional lustre. Her Majesty was received on her arrival at the Houses of Parliament with a military salute from the guard of honor, and a royal salvo of twenty-one guns. The Queen looked re...
