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

CHINA. How will the coming events of 1842 affect our position in China ? Vainly have we essayed to solve this momentous and all- engrossing question, but the study of the past affords no clue by which we can specu- late on the future. If experience had not taught us the humiliating truth that we have yet to learn the character of our enemy — that our opinions have been built on a foundation of ignorance — we should express our fears that a satisfactory settle- ment of the pending quarrel is still most remote. Our government is now about to com- mence what it should have done two years ago ; to carry on the war with vigour and upon a becoming scale. The pretty buc- caneering system of warfare that has hith- erto been pursued, while it has cost us a thousand lives, has not advanced our cause one jot. The moral effect upon the people, occasioned by the invariable success of our arms, has lost much of its force, and famili- arity with our mode of warfare and the superiority of our weapo...

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

AFFGHANISTAN. A decisive victory had been obtained at Candahar, on the 11th January, by the British troops under General Nott, over Mahommed Atta Khan with 3000 Affghans, 450 of whom were killed, 200 wounded, and the rest completely routed. On the side of the English, the loss was only 3 killed, and thirty wounded ; among the latter, 3 officers. This victory, although it was stated to have been in a great mea- sure due to the dissensions that had taken place among the native chiefs themselves, had not the less contributed to revive the drooping spirits and arouse the depressed energies of the British troops, whom the late dreadful reverses in Affghanistan had completely discouraged. The hostages, under the special guard of Akhbar Khan, together with the unfortu- nate women and children that fell into the power of the Affghans, were well treated. Shah Soojah was allowed still to retain the nominal title of King. Dost Mahommed with his family and suite composed of fifty persons, was s...

THE STORY OF THE OLD WOLF. (Translated from the German.) CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 2 July 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 affection 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...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 2 July 1842

(From our Second Edition of last week.) THE William, from Sydney, is alongside the wharf ; she left a few hours after the Sir John Byng, and brings no later news. Suisted, the insolvent, was at Sydney, lead- ing a gay life : Capt. Westmoreland, one of his creditors, endeavoured to arrest him, but was unsuccessful ; and before a warrant can be sent from hence, it is probable he will be on his way to New Zealand. — Capt. Tregurtha, late of the Charlotte, is a pas- senger by the William : he came from England to Sydney in the Cornubia, one of Mr. Boyd's steam vessels. She has since been laid up. — The Juno steamer is refitting. The Sea Horse is also again laid up — The Lady Rowena, Launceston whaler, had twelve tons of sperm. — The Windsor mail had been robbed, and a large number of bank notes taken. — Private advices of the 11th inst. state that tea is £5 10s. to £6, but the best marks are not offered at these prices ; sugar may be purchased at from £24 to £28 per ton, and more arriva...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 2 July 1842

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 those of the Lutherans and...

SECOND EDITION. LATEST INTELLIGENCE. Including the News by this day's Post. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 2 July 1842

SECOND EDITION. LATEST INTELLIGENCE. Including the News by this day's Post. By an advertisement, in our columns it will be perceived that the Horticultural Society will meet on the 6th instant. About £600 has been subscribed ; but we are sure the liberality of our townsmen and residents in the neighbourhood, will not allow the subscription list to be closed till £1000, at least, has been contributed. The fencing of the ground given by government will cost £100 ; the erection of a gateway and one lodge, fronting Tamar-street, £200 ; to build a brick wall between the pilot and in- fant-school allotments, and to attach on the one side a small green-house, and on the other men's huts, about £200 must be ex- pended. The government will furnish labour, but £100 at least will be required for the management of the garden the first year. COUNTERFEIT COIN. — From the innumer- able complaints which have been lately made of bad coins, particularly half-crowns, being constantly offered to the sh...

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

WOOL SALES. THE fifth series of the Public Sales of Colonial Wool this season, commenced 27th ultimo, and, concluded 2nd instant, consisting of the following quantity :— 4584 bales Australian wool 940 " Van Diemen's Land " 570 " Port Phillip " 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 descrliptions 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 ; these may be quoted at about 1d. per lb. reduction from the prices obtained at the sales in November last. The wools suitable for combing purposes...

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

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. ON Tuesday evening the Rev. Mr. West de- livered a lccture 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 he 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...
