A CHAPTER ON DUELLING. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 5 September 1842
A CHAPTER ON DUELLING. (from, Paley.) Duelling as a punishment is absurd ; because it is an equal chance, whether the punishment fall upon the offender, or the person offended. Nor is it much better as a reparation ; it being difficult to explain in what the satisfaction con sists or how it tends to undo the injury, or to afford a oomnensation fnr the damanrp. sdrpaAv sustained. The truth is, it is not considered as either. A law of honour having annexed the imputation of cowardice to patience under an affront, challenges are given and accepted with no other designs than to prevent or wipe off this suspicion ; ? without malice against the adversary, generally without a § wish to destroy him, or any other concern than to | preserve the duellist's own reputation and recep- 1 tion in the world. E The unreasonableness of this rule of manners is one consideration ; the duty and conduct of in dividuals, while such a rule exists, is another. As to which, the proper and single question is t...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1843. We have received an amended draft of ilie the Courts of Request extension act. The original has evidently been carefully reviewed by some Gentleman well versed in the techni calncs ol the law. 1 lie anie idnienls are im portant and judicious ; in fact by comparing the two drafts, we are much astonished at the vague ness and looseness of the original, though we must confess, many of its defects escaped our observation. The Lieutenant-Governor, is' empowered to institute Courts by proclamation, in such dis tricts, at such places, a-id for such amounts, and at such times us be may deem necessary. Under the original draft, the Courts throughout the Island were to be held imperatively once in each month, and no provision was made for regulating the time and amounts. There is still a slight defect in this clause ; the proclamations ap pointing Courts, Sue., should be published in the Gazette, but no provision is made to this effect. The ...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. A lecture was delivered at the rooms of die Mechanics' Institute, on Friday last, by Dr. Paton.on ' the progress and prospects of the Phys'ical Sciences.' Ihe lecturer slated, that, it would have occupied more of his time than he could possibly have spared from the duties of his profession, to' enter into so coin irenensivc an elucidation of the subject as he had at first intended, and that being at the same time incapable of doing justice to it in a single lecture, he hud been under the necessity of confining bis remarks within a more contracted sphere, and had been compelled to deviate in some measure from his original design. Instead there fore of directing the attention of his audience to the progress and prospects of the physical sciences, he con fined himself to the elucidation of some of their leading and more obvious features, and the close connection that existed amongst them. The sciences he observed might be divided into three distinct branches, firs...
