CHINA NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 22 August 1842
CHINA NEWS. The defences of the river between Whampoa to Canton, were all nearly, and some quite finished and armed ; on every spot great activity was apparent, and the practice of great and small arms was incessant day and night. ji was reponea in v^amon uiaiasmp oi aooui 350 tons, had just been launched near the Fate (flower ground gardens ) She is said to be pierced for 26 guns.; und .had been built by some rich individuals, for ft present to the government. One large boat, and one or two of smaller sizes, were propelled by paddle-wheels, in imi tation of our steamers. They were frequently seen exercising both above and below Canton, and they make very good way against wind and tide; it was supposed lhat they -were turned by winches, turned by hand at the bottom of the boat.

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, AUGUST 22, 1842. Our latest ludian news is contained in papers received via. tlie Mauritius. lie Ceylon Herald of the ,17th May, announces .that General Pollock had forced the passage of the Khyber and arrived at Jellalabad on the 16th April.- Tin's triumph was attended witli a loss of only 14 killed, 104 wounded, and 17 missing. General Sale had entirely routed Ackbar Khan and his army ; the enemy had sustained a loss of 500 men ; Colonel Dennie, was killed in this engagement. The Ceylon Herald extra, contains further news extracted from Bombay papers of 11th May. Shah Soojah had been assassinated at Caboul by a son of Zeroan Khan, whom the rebels had made king. It was said that a treaty was about to be executed between Government and Dost Mahommed for the liberation of the prisoners at Caboul ; the result of which says Le Cerneen, would be that Dost Mahomnied would be re-established on the throne, and the affairs of Caboul would be placed in the sam...
INDIA NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 22 August 1842
INDIA NEWS. At the latest dates from India, another engage ment was said to have taken place between the English under Sale and the Affghans under Akhbar Khan, in which the latter were defeated and five hundred of their liumbfr killed. The loss of the English is not stated, .and indeed, the whole account is discredited, as no intelligence of it has reached Calcutta, although Government was in possession of news from the camp at Jell allabad a few days later than the date on which the engagement is said to have occurred. Jealousies still unfortunately prevailed between the civil and military officers, and a want of union and mutual understanding much retards the suc cessful issue of the present disastrous contest. Accounts had reached Calcutta of the occur rence of an earthpuake at Jellallabad, about the middle of February, from which the Fort occu pied by the English had sustained considerable damage. Three bastions of the fuur were ' in jured, and part of the parapet thrown down, b...

Return of Grain and Flour exported from tlje Port of I-aunceston, during the week ending the 6th August 1842, inclusive -.—Oats, 981 bushels. Wheat, 3400 ditto. Flour, 36 tons 17 cwt. Return of Grain and Flour imported into the Port of Launceston, during the week ending 6th August. 1842.— Nil. . Uur Sydney papers do not warrant any change in the price of wheat, fhe inclemency of the weather and the bad state of the roads have prevented the farmers sending their grain to town. The demand for colonial produce is trifling. A slight advance in the price of a few articles of genera! consumption has taken place. Another reduction in the price of candles has been made. A supply of sperm candles has arrived, and may lie had at Nokes' Tea Mart. No alteration in the price of stock.
MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 22 August 1842
MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. On Tuesday evening, a lecture was delivered by Mr. S. E. Hervey at this Institute, before a more numorous auditory than we have seen at any pre vious meeting. The subject was- ' Heat, its in fluences and general practical application. The lecturer first alluded to the different opinions rela tive to the nature of heat, of which but little was positively known, though much had been conjec tured ; he inclined to the theory of Dr. Black, that heat was matter, one fact in support of which opinion, was the power of combination which its particles possessed. The effects of heat, he divi ded into the five following heads — expansion, liquifactioiijvaperisation, radiation, and combustion or ignition. The first of these., expansion, was the division of the subject to which the lecturer more particularly confined himself. To divert the minds of his hearers as much as possible from the natural association of ideas which connects beat, or elementary fire, with warmth and f...

SUPREME COURT, HOBART TOWN, TETLEY V. SHERWIN, Friday, August 12. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 22 August 1842
SUPREME COURT, HOBART TOWN, TEIXEY V. SHERWIN, 'Friday, August 12. Their Honors delivered their opinion this morn ing in the case of Tetley v. Sliertvin, upon a ?notion for another new trial, which had been made by the Attorney General on the first Bitting in the present term. Both the Judges concurred m granting a new trial upon the point of law. His Honor the Chief Justice observed, that it was entirely upon the point of law, and not of fact, that the trial was granted. If tlie decision of thejuryhaddepended upon the credibility of a witness, or as to the fact whether a certain thing was, or was not done, and two juries had decided the same way, the court would not interfere; but if it was shown that Sherwin was only the servant of the Insurance Company, and not the agent of Tetley, no court, even if twenty juries had found for the plaintiff, could refuse a new trial. There had been already three trials, and the list of jurors in Hobart Town, his Honor understood, was exhausted ; ...

PORT PHILLIP. The Carrington Case. The Port Phillip papers, received by the Scout, are filled with reports of another most extraor dinary proceeding on the part of His Honor Mr. Justice Willis.
