TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 2 July 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNOESTON   EXAMINER.     SIR. — I had much pleasure last evening in at- tending the meeting held in St. John's church of   the auxiliary to the Society for the Propaga-   tion of the Gospel in foreign parts, and though it   was announced as exclusively a church of England society, the several addresses made by its minis-   terial and lay members were, as might be ex-   pected, worthy of the members of such a comnun-   nity ; at the same time exhibiting a spirit of christian candour and good will towards christians   differently denominated. I certainly was not, from what I heard, led to see the propriety of the protestant episcopal church being allied to the state, nor of that church bearing any honour by her being constitutionally and legally the church of England. I rejoiced to hear it stated that that society acted upon the volun...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 2 July 1842

PORT PHILLIP. DEPUTY SHERIFF. — By the Atlas of the 2nd February we observe that Alastair M'Kenzie, Esq., son of a general officer, has been gazetted as deputy-sheriff for Port Phillip. Mr. Raymond, we understand, will apply to be admitted to practise as a barrister in the Supreme Court of this dis- trict. We have little doubt that the ru- mour alluded to in our last, relative to an immediate separation from the middle dis- trict, and the removal of their Honors Mr. La Trobe and Judge Willis, originated in the above official notification. — Herald. IMPORTANT NEWS. — Upon the authority of private letters received by the Earl of Durham it is rumoured that the separation of Port Phillip from the middle district is to be immediately effected ; that his Honor Mr. La Trobe will be offered the situation of superintendent of Moreton Bay ; that Judge Willis will be superseded ; and that the deputy-sheriff, Mr. Raymond, is to be removed and be succeeded by a sheriff.

NORTHERN AGRICULTURAL REPORT FOR JUNE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 2 July 1842

NORTHERN AGRICULTURAL REPORT FOR JUNE. The general labour of the farm for June is less interesting than that of preceding months, but still not unimportant ; the rains, more abundant than usual, have enabled occupiers of new farms freely to proceed in breaking up their land, and we learn that our cultivated districts will be considerably extended this year. The desire to change from older farms seems to prevail amongst colonial farmers ; this shows a defective sys- tem, and must soon reach its limit. What would become of English farmers, if after a few years cultivation their farms were worn out ? We seem to be agriculturally, as well as geographically, at the antipodes. In England the object and result of agri- culture (next to the production of a crop) is to reclaim and improve the land ; there some of the finest tracts, displaying the most perfect cultivation, were formerly almost barren and worthless ; the light sandy soil of Norfolk has been strengthened and enriched, while the...

PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 2 July 1842

PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. The parliamentary intelligence is brought down to the night of the 10th. The address in reply to her Majesty's speech was moved in the House of Lords by the Marquis of Abercorn and seconded by the Earl of Dalhousie ; and in the House of Commons by the Earl of March, seconded by Mr. Beckett. In neither house was there any division. In the debate which took place on the address there was but little to attract attention. Lord Melbourne taunted minis- ters with the new functions the conservatives had assumed, the tenure of power convert- ing them to reformers, and laughed at the favourable change which had taken place in the views of the ministry as to the state of the foreign relations of the country, since the month of August. In the House of Commons, Lord John Russell twitted ministers with adopting the very principles the opposition to which had brought them into office. Lord John also referred to the rumour which had gained general credence that governme...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, July 2, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 2 July 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER,     Saturday, July 2, 1842. WE feel no trepidation in reminding our readers of quarter day. It naturally brings under review the merits of a journal ; but we hail it with confidence as fraught with accession to our strength. We appear be- fore the public — like a steward confident in his own fidelity, and in the favour of his master — to submit our past adminis- tration of a public trust, to a rigorous but candid examination. We have broken no promises : for fully aware that promises, unsustained by the past, gain little credit, we resolved to await that estimate of our editorial qualifications, which time alone could produce and confirm. We stated in our prospectus that pri- vate character should be sacred and in- violate : that to touch it in the ardour of public controversy is culpable, but to in- vade it for personal objects is a crime — less punishable indeed, but far more despi- cable, than assaults on the person or the purse. We ...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 2 July 1842

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. ON Tuesday evening the Rev. Mr. West de- livered a lecture on the Progress of Society, at the rooms of the institution : we were pleased to see a good attendance. W. H. Breton, Esq., the president, took the chair. The lecturer com- menced by observing " the proper study of man- kind is man," and contrasted the sensations that would be experienced by two individuals placed on the dome of St. Paul's, in the British metro- polis, the one well informed and the other a rustic. He thought, separate from scripture testimony, that all mankind were derived from a single pair ; and that, notwithstanding the diversity of colour that was found to prevail, he conceived we should be forced to the same conclusion, as two primary creations would not better solve the difficulties. In his opinion, man was not at the lowest point of civilization at the first, but was gradually reduced in the scale by persecution and dispersion. Many of the antediluvian arts doubtless survived the...

MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 2 July 1842

MISCELLANY.   PUSEYISM. — A Fellow and Tutor of Mag- dalene College, Oxford, thus records, in a pamphlet, his sentiments upon the Pro- testant Faith :— " Certainly I am for no middle ways, as you will understand, when I tell you plainly that, for myself, I utterly regret and anathematise the principle of Protestantism as a heresy, with all its forms, sects, or denominations ; and if the Church of England should ever unhappily profess herself to be a form of Protestantism, (which may God of his infinite mercy for- bid !) then would I reject and anathematise the Church of England, and separate my- self from her immediately, as from a human sect, without giving Protestants any un- necessary trouble to procure my expulsion. In conclusion, I once more publicly profess myself a Catholic, and a member of a Catholic church, and say anathema to the principle of Protestantism, which I regard as the principle of dissent, and to all its forms, sects, or denominations, especially to...

WOOL SALES. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 2 July 1842

WOOL SALES. THE fifth series of the Public Sales of Colon is Wool this season, commenced 27th uiltimo, and concluded 2nd instant, consisting of the following quantity :— 4584 bales Australian wool 940 " Van Diemen's Land " 570 " Port Philllip " 405 " South Australian " 217 " Touthern African " 6756 350 " East Indian " 7106 bales There was reason to apprehend, from the lan- guid state of the manufacturing districts and the gloom pervading the wool and woollen trades, that a decline in prices generally would be the re- sult of these sales, but we have satisfaction in stating that all descriptions of wool at 1s. 6d. or 1s. 7d. and under realised former rates.   A considerable proportion of the Australian wools, at these sales, were of good clothing quali- ties. Many of the flocks were rather weak in the staple — others defective in condition ; thcse may be quoted at about 1d. per lb. reduction from the prices obtained at the sales in November last. The wools suitable for c...
