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 co...

From the statistical returns published during the week, we gather the following particulars :— COIN.   The total amount of coin in the treasury, the military chest, and the several banks on the 31st December last, was £462,624 17s. 9d., being an increase over the amount of the previous year of £65,043. 4s. POPULATION. From the 2nd March to the 31st December, the population returns for the colony, including Port Phillip, present an increase of 18,813, making the entire population at the close of last year 149,669. The increase by immigrants during the interval, was 19,908 ; the departures were 2,998 ; the births 4,273 ; the deaths 2,400. TIlE IMPORTS AND EXPORTS.

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 superiori...

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

LAUNCESTON EXAMINIER, 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 challenge the examination of ...
