SAILING DIRECTIONS FOR NELSON HAVEN. Vessels bound to Nelson Haven, in Tasman's Gulf, if, when they arrive off Cape Farewell or Stephen's Island, the weather be fine, should run for the eastern shore of the gulf and make Croixilles Harbour, which is a few miles to the southward of the entrance to the French Pass, and will be easily known hy three islands being in the centre of the bay, which leads to a creek running up E. N. E. and W.S.W. with six and seven fathoms for two or three miles, and quite landlocked from the sea. After passing Croixilles they may run boldly down to the S. W., within a mile of tbe shore. About eight miles from Croixilles they will make Pepin's Island, which, however, dpes not show as an island, but as a point, with several small rocks off it. From thence the course is something more to the southward, about eight miles to the commencement of the flats off Nelson Haven, and nine from the entrance.

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, AUGUST 29, 1842. WHO SHALL DECIDE WHEN DOCTORS DISAGREE ? We take credit for having abstained from all comment upon the professional differences that hove recently agitated a portion of oui commu nity. ' We have done so from a conviction that* those who had agreed to differ, would never he conciliated by the' spontaneous interference of a third party ; that newspaper warfare was admi luiily adapted' for prolonging those differences and inflaming .the disputants; and more .espfe c1allyj|be-ttuse^e public cannot reg^tUjtbe sjateinents ^f jujil&iilhorisfiu1 ehampionsfis ad? fiilssable evidence of ahe real facts of tbecase, as existing /between the principals. 2?r^o, coin* thent ''would' be useless, and injudicious.

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1842. Mr. Fenton, seconded by Mr. Ashburner, has agitated a question in the legislative Council of the greatest importance to the » bole community ; ive refer lo the mismanagement of tbe Post office department. It is not of the agents, but , ?--f ilm «»d/am I Ji*it tiro in rnmin^n tvtt n iiitio_ tenths of our fellow colonists have so much good Teason to complain. Upon its first introduction we foresaw and pointed out, the evil consequences that would probably arise ; our anticipations have been fully realized ; the system has been proved to be productive of innumerable incon veniencies 10 the public, and frequent losses to individuals. Captain Fenton's evidence on this point could be coroborated by many others, who have been placed in a worse position than he has instanced. In point of fact, the delivery of letters in the country is conducted upon a system of chance. Suppose a letter of import ance were posted in town, addressed to a resi...

Svdney Banks ? An interesting conversaiion took place in the Sydney Legislative Council, upon the oc casion of bis Excellency laying upon the table the general abstract of the returns made by the Banks, for the quarter ending 30lh June. It appears that the Banks were discounting to the amount of two millions and a half, which, with the paper discounted, privately and by companies, his Excellency considered ?? frightful. 1 he high rate of discounts, Sir ueorge pronouncea 10 ue ' exorbitant,' but was opposed to the introduction of an usury law. We gather the following from a statement made by his Excellency. By the return made in March, '1841, it appeared there were not less than ±'222,802, in bank notes in circulation in the colony, but in June, 1842, there were £199,125, shewing a de crease in the circulation of bank notes to the amount of ±'23,677. There was an increase of bills in circulation, principally drawn upon the banks in Sydney; in 1841, they were something more than i49,O...

POETRY LOST PEELING. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 5 September 1842
POETRY. ; : LOST PEELING. Oh I weep not that our beauty wean Beneath the wings of time ; That age conceals the brow with cares That once appoar'd sublime. Oh I weep not that the clouded eye No shining thought can speak ; And, fresh and fair, no longer lie Joytints upon the check. No I weep not that ruin-trace Of casting time is seen, Around the form and face Where beauty's lines have been : — Hut mourn the inward wreck we feel As blighted years depart, A nd Time's benumbing lingers steal Young feelings from the heart ! Those joyous thoughts that rise and spring From out the buoyant mind, Like summer bees upon the wing, Or echoes on the wind. The hopes that sparkle every hour, Like blossomB from a soul Where sorrow sheds no blighting power, And care has no controul, — With all the rich enchantment thrown On Life's fair scene around, As if the world within a cone Of happiness were bound t Oh I these endure a mournful doom, As day by day they die ; Till age becomes a barren tomb Where ...
