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 rema...

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...

THE STORY OF THE OLD WOLF. (Translated from the German.) CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 25 June 1842

THE STORY OF THE OLD WOLF. (Translated from the German.) CHAPTER III. Sir Isegrim felt more than ever the injurious effects of a questionable reputation. He could no longer live by his teeth as a wolf — his coat would not permit him to pass for a dog. All his elo- quence could not win the confidence of the shep- herd, or the afflecion of the flock. " My skin," he exclaimed, " is against me ; but the third attempt generally creates or dissipates the charm. May it be so in this instance ! No- thing will prove my reformation but bringing the head of a wolf in token of my eternal hostility to violence, and my admiration of persecuted inno- cence. The blood of the pack cannot taste so sweet as what I well remember, but will not whisper. But I must go warily to work ; there is some danger to be dared : yet hunger is supe- rior to fear, and will enable me to dare anything." As the shadows of evening closed, the wolf re- turned with slow and marshalled steps to the door of a neighbouring sh...

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...

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 control, 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 due...

PORTLAND BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 25 June 1842

PORTLAND BAY. WE prefer giving a verbatim copy of the letter alluded to in the second edition last week. " Portland, June 6, 1842. " My object in writing you these few lines is to give you some little idea of this place, and such information as may be of service to your journal. Great objections are made here by the settlers at the absurd difference in the weight of a bag of flour between Launceston and Hobart Town, which tends in a great degree to the disadvantage of your port : cannot you by the means of your paper call the attention of the millers to this ? For, if not directly arranged, you will throw the principal part of the trade into Hobart Town ; the rate of freight be- ing the same, and all other expenses. In these times it is necessary for parties to look where they can get the most and best for their money. " The township is progressing steady, and many trades are in demand — a good baker, tailor, and shoemaker would, if sober men, get full employment ; every description...
