THE CAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 15 August 1842

THE CAPE. By Saturday's post we received a file of Cape papers to the 20lh June. We are at a loss to understand why these journals did not reach us on Wednesday. We observe in our Hobart Town contemporaries, published on Tuesday Morning, extracts from papers received by the same vessel, and as the Mail does not leave Hobart Town until Tuesday evening, surely the papers addressed to this office, might, and should have been forwarded thereby. The intelligence they contain is of an exciting nature. A terrible conflict had taken place be tween the troops -and a portion of the emigrant farmers, during which, about fifty of the British troops were killed and wounded. It appears the expedition to Fort Natal, under command of Captain Smith, arrived there on the 4th May. From that day to the 16th, Captain Smith and Mr. Fretorius had been discussing matters connected with Fort Natal, which was about to lead to a peaceful Military occupation' of the Troops, and an amicable settlement on the pa...

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

PILOTAGE. The following is an abridgement of the draft of an Act to reduce the charges of pilot age on steam vessels. It is advisable that some such reduction be made in the rate of pilotage on vessels towed outwards or inwards by such steam vessels, and we understand the Government will be Memorialized upon the subject. It seems only rational and just that vessels which do not require a pilot should not be subject to the same charges as those which do. An Act wag passed inline, fourth year of the reign of her present-Majesty ^by the Legislative Council of this Island intituled An Act to provide for tlie Payment of certain Dues to be applied to tlus Maintenance of ' Light-lwuses in Van Piemen's Land and its Dependencies — By the second sec tion of that Act it is enacted that the several rates specified in the Schedule to that Act marked A should be paid to the Collector of Customs at Hobart Town or Launceston in respect of all vessels either arriving in or departing from either of t...

SYDNEY-Jnto 12. The quantity of wheat brought to market thiB week irom the interior was very small, owing to the bad state of the roads, but a good supply has arrived by small draft* from Wollongohg and other parts of the coast ; urices remain at our former Quotations.

ARDENT SPIRITS—MINISTERIAL POPULARITY [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 15 August 1842

AEDENT SPIRITS— MINISTERIAL POPULARITY. A* I was passing along ? street, iny parti cular friend 7T ? W ? stopped nW 1 bfthe question, 'Have you read the Rev. Mr.B— — 's sermons on Intemperance V As I felt disposed to have a little .conversation with mv friend on tne subject of temperance, (for he was a wholesale dealer in the article of ardent spirits,) I answered his question rather in the downcast fashion, by a pretty considerable circumlocution. ' Whether I have or not, I take it for granted that you have. How do youlike them ?' 'A strange question to ask me; for if Mr. B ? is right, then if I liked his sermons I should confess myself not only a murderer of the bodies and souls of men, but one of tbe greatest nui sances to be found in society. I think I have answered ^rour question now.' ' Yes, it requires no very great wisdom to see that you do not like them.'

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER MONDAY, AUGUST 15, 1842 [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 15 August 1842

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER MONDAY, AUGUST 15, 1842. We shall not be sorry to hear of the confirma tion of a rumour, which lias been so long cur rent, that the Austral-astatic Colonies are to he united under a general Governorship. Much good might be anticipated from such an appoint ment. The South Australian Magazine sums up the following advantages, as being likely to arise from the contemplated Union : — First. — By the union of the Auslralrasiatic colonies under a Governor-Generalship, we should be likely to secure men of higher stand ing and more thoroughly conversant with the science of government, as our rulers. Secondly — The responsibility of those to whom the administration of our affairs is in trusted would be divided, and, consequently diminished. Thirdly— The despatch of the public business of the colonies would be greatly simplified, and (hereby facilitated and lessened. Fourthly — The bond of union between these colonies would be drawn more closely, and a much greater impr...

Importance of immigration to the Commerce of Great Britain. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 15 August 1842

Importance of immigration to the Com merce of Gkeat Britain. We have seen an interesting calculation of the amount and value of the exhortations caused by emigration. The individual an nual consumption of English manufactures in New South Wales is found to vary from £8 to £10; but let us assume that the average of our colonies would be £5 per head. Supposing that 300,000 emigrants are annually sent to the Colonies, the yearly in crease of exports would be £1,500,000; at the end of ten years their value would be 15,000,000 and the aggregate amount' of merchandize ex pected to the Coliiiies in that period would be 82,500,009.

POETRY THE FEMALE CONVICT TO HER INFANT. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 15 August 1842

POETRY.         THE FEMALE CONVICT TO HER INFANT. Oh ! sleep not my babe, for the morn of to-morrow Will hush me to slumber more tranquil than thine ; The dark grave will shield me from shame and from sorrow, Though the deeds and the doom of the guilty are mine. Not long shall the arms of affection enfold thee, Not long shalt thou hang on thy mother's fond breast ; And who, with the eye or delight shall behold thee ; Who watch thee and guard thee when I am at rest. And yet doth it grieve me to make thee, my dearest, The pangs of thy desolate parent to see ; Thou wilt weep when the clink of my fetters thou hearest, And none but the guilty should mourn over me. And yet must I wake thee,— for while thou art sleeping, To calm thee, I stifle my tears for awhile ; But thou smil'st in thy dreams, while thus placidly sleeping, And, oh ! how it wounds me to gaze on thy smile. Alas, my sweet babe ! with what pride had I press'd thee, To the ...
