LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, June 25, 1842. LAND REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 25 June 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, June 25, 1842. LAND REGULATIONS. IMPORTANT despatches have been re- ceived by Sir George Gipps, designed to amend the method hitherto adopted in the sale of crown lands. The communications of the right honorable secretary, accompa- nying her Majesty's instructions, would fill our columns. Their most important provi- sions may, however, be briefly expressed. They leave to the Governor-General full discretionary power to distribute the sup- ply of labour, irrespective of the amount contributed by the different settlements subject to his controul, except Port Phil- lip ; there, the scale of supply will de- pend only and wholly on the quota the district may yield to the land fund. Her Majesty's instructions provide that after land has been offered by auction, the settler may purchase at the upset price, by tendering the sum to the proper officer ; but the minimum rate is not to be less than twelve shillings per acre, which may be raised by government on du...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 25 June 1842

(From our Second Edition of last week.) PORTLAND BAY. — We have to acknow- ledge the communication of a valued cor- respondent, received by the Minerva this morning. A public meeting was held on the 30th ultimo, Edward Henty, Esq., in the chair, when the inhabitants agreed to petition his Excellency for a local Court of Requests, the erection of a jetty, the formation of a dam in the river, to keep back a sufficient supply of fresh water, and a bonded warehouse. They also request that Portland should be constituted a free warehousing port. A newspaper is to be started immediately. We will next week attend to the other matters mentioned in our correspondent's letter. WM. Porden Kay has been appointed Director of Public Works. PORT ARTHUR. — A new shaft is to be sunk at the coal mines. Thomas Shaw, an absconder, had murdered an overseer named Bickley, and William Langham has been fully committed for stabbing Thos. Cooke. THE prisoners that arrived last week from Sydney, in the Marian ...

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

AGRICULTURE. " There has been no change in the markets during the week. The intelligence from Sydney, and the favorable season, having tended to pre- vent a rise, the price of grain of every description   is rather lowered than advanced. This is to be regretted, because eight shillings per bushel for wheat can hardly be considered a remunerating price for the ordinary grower, much less for those who have had the misfortune to fall into the hands of the usurers." The above quotation from Murray's Re- view undoubtedly expresses the wish, or gratifies the passions, of a numerous class. Those whose thoughts continually recur to that recent period when holders scouted the offer of 20s. per bushel, will claim the praise of moderation in looking wistfully for eight. But opinions cannot permanently raise a market. Our destiny, as growers of corn, cannot be surveyed but in connec- tion with the productive capabilities of neighbouring colonies, or distant states. Corn can be supp...
