THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 8. THE PRESERVATION OF PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 8 February 1841

THE LAUMCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 8. TITE PRESERVATION OF PEACE. From tlie Examiner. 'There is nothing like leather,' said the tanner. There is nothing like a barricade, quoth the King of the Barricades, and accordingly he resolves upon an enormous barricade round Pa ris. This is the only instance in which the Kins of the French has shown bis.- recollec- tion of the services of barricades, and yet it is hinted that the intention of the gigantic barri cade without the city is to domineer over petty barricades within ; that the design, under ex ternal pretences, is the purely domestic one 'of protecting Paris against herself, and that she is clothing herself most imposingly witli armour. Louis Philippe is reported, by the Covmer Francois, to have said to an ambassador, ' I am a lover of peace, and therefore I fortify Paris.' If the degree of the Citizen King's love of peace is to he measured by the scale of his fortification, it is well that his love of peace is not greater tha...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 8 February 1841

ENGLISH EXTRACTS The great success attending scientific researches, and the rapid progress which invention and machinery have made within the last six or seven years, induce us to copy the following wonderful discovery, from the Times: ' The Atmospheric Railway Carriages. — It is upwards of a year and a half since we described the experiment made by Mr. Clegg, in the borough on the mode of propelling carriages by means of exhausting a pipe, or tube, with which the carriages were connected, and then admitting the atmospheric air, and, as it were, forcing the carriages or train along, and thus superseding the ?necessity of gas or any other power for the conveyance of a train along a rail or tramroad. These experiments were very successful; indeed so successful, that few per sons had any doubt about the ultimate success of the principle of the invention. On Thursday the experi-r ments were exhibited on a large scale, on a railroad which connects, or is intended to connect, the line of ...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 15. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 15 February 1841

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 15. A difference has arisen amongst some of the Medical Gentlemen at Hobart Town, which, from the stations and characters of the parties concerned, has excited considerable interest, although to every reflecting mind, that interest must naturally be of a painful description. There is nothing more to be lamented, in a small community like this, than these disputes between professional gentlemen, aiming as they do, at the root of all social and domestic happi ness, and destroying that unanimity which the present situation of this colony renders so essen tially necessary. Without offering a single comment upon the subject of dispute between Dr. Beof -rd and Dr. Brock — beyond the expression of our regret that it shonid ever have been occasioned — and without expressing any opinion upon the merits of the case, we may be allowed to lay the particulars before our readers , premising, however, that they are drawn principally fromthepuhlished stateme...
