CIVIL SIDE. Before His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu and a jury of four. THURSDAY, JULY 7. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 July 1842

CIVIL SIDE. Before His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu and a jury of four. THURSDAY, JULY 7. CHEESMAN v. FRAZER. — This was an action brought by the plaintiff against the sheriff for damages sustained in consequence of the bailiff permitting Israel Shaw to escape from custody. The defendant pleaded the general issue. The judge was of opinion that the new rules of court did not apply to the plea when put in by the sheriff. Not only had the plain- tiff to prove the arrest and escape, but all the preliminary proceedings. Under the di- rection of the judge, the jury found a verdict for the plaintiff, damages £29 11s. 9d., to be changed to a verdict for the defendant if it should be decided in banco that the plaintiff was bound to prove the amount of damages or the arrest of Shaw. FRIDAY, JULY 8. Before His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu and a Jury of twelve. REID v. HARTNELL. — This was an action brought by Mr. Charles Reid, of Long- ford, against the defendant, formerly his servant, for slander. ...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, July 9, 1842. LAND REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 July 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, July 9, 1842. LAND REGULATIONS. THE movement of Sir George Gipps in favour of emigration has drawn the atten- tion of the home authorities, and induced a review of the whole system, or rather series of systems, on which land has been given or sold ; and if once the eyes of the imperial minister and parliament can be steadily directed to colonial affairs, and if once the attention of England is engaged by the concerns of these colonies, we may expect a full share of the enterprise, capital, and liberal institutions of our countrymen ; who, though difficult to   rouse, and always tardy in comprehending their duty, are ever just. It appears that Lord Stanley introduced his bill for the regulation of land sales very early in the session. His measure has a more important aspect in the other colo- nies. It will, however, fix one pound as a mininum price in this, and consequently preserve the present settlers from all in- trusion on their back ru...

PUSEYISM. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 July 1842

PUSEYISM. " In conclusion, I once more publicly profess myself a catholic, and a member of a catholic church, and say anathema to the principle of pro- testantism, which I regard as the principle of dis- sent, and to all its forms, sects, or denominations, especially to those of the Lutherans and Cal- vinists, and British and North American dis- senters ; likewise to all persons who knowingly and willingly, and understanding what they do, shall assert, either for themselves or the Church of England, the principle of protestantism, to all such, I say anathema." WERE this the language of a Roman priest it might be heard with tolerance : we should have a right to construe with generosity that official cursing which education may induce a man to sanction or perform, while the mildness of his temper, and the benevo- lence of his life, soften the complexion of his creed. But this is the language of a priest enjoying the benefit of protestant profession ; and, having no excuse of edu- cati...

(From our Second Edition of last week.) 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-strcet, £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 shopkeepers,   we should s...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 July 1842

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. HER MAJESTY AND PRINCE ALBERT AT PORTSMOUTH. — Her Majesty and Prince Albert arrived about twelve on Monday. From lion-gate to the dock-yard, the streets were lined by the 32d, 34th, and 73d regts. The ropemakers of the dock-yard, accord- ing to previous custom, on the occasion of a royal visit, met her Majesty at Mile-end, and preceded the royal carriage on its route to the dock-yard. They were dressed in white jackets and trousers, and had wands and blue sashes, on which was inscribed, " God save the Queen." Upon the arrival of her Majesty at the lion gates, which were closed, she was met by the governor of the garrison, General Sir Hercules Pa- kenham, and the gates were opened upon the demand of her Majesty. The instant she was within the walls, the royal standard was hoisted, the guns of the forts and     of the shipping in the harbour and at Spit- head commenced firing a royal salute. The latter manned their yards. As her Majesty...

We have no doubt that the shareholders will authorise the im- mediate payment of Mr. Tetley's claim. AURORA AUSTRALIS. — On Saturday even- ing this splendid appearanse was visible in all its beauty. The coruscations, for tile short time it lasted, were most vivid, and shot up from time to time to a considerable altitude, and appeared as it were in moving relief on a stationary back ground of dilute light. We did not hear any of that pecu- liar crackling noise which is said sometimes to accompany it, and which we have seve- ral times heard ourselves, if fancy has not deceived us. In fact we should have no doubt on this subject did not very many ob- servers say that it is never accompanied with noise of any kind. — H. T. Advertiser. [At Launceston the appearance of the p...

HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 July 1842

HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. In another column will be found an account of the meeting held at the police-office to promote the formation of a botanic garden ; and whatever difficulty may attend the full accomplishment of its plans, we have no doubt of final success. It is gratifying to the pride of our towns-people to find their   locality advancing to the possession of all those valuable institutions enjoyed in older countries. It is true our narrow sphere and limited means will still leave room for odious comparisons. Miserable and cyni- cal snarlers — who bestow not a farthing for the accomplishment of a public object, and who are the muffled drums and hurdigur- dies of the world ; who seem only created to set off the charms of harmony by con- trast ; the miserable beings who grin where others smile, groan where others cheer ; who strut with the turkey, fret with the porcupine, and cackle with the goose — these will tell us that our Mechanics' Institution is much less cel...

COURT OF REQUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 July 1842

COURT OF REQUESTS. IN a late Law Magazine there is an arti- cle on the Local Courts' Bill, introduced into parliament by Mr. Fox Maule. Were our business with the reviewer, we should tell him his legal prejudices and political predilections have warped his judgment ; and that his article is rather a captious cri- tique than a fair review of the measure. Propositions for legal reform seldom issue from the profession. Intricacies, which have only been mastered by much labour and expenditure of time, are supposed to be essential appendages of justice ; and a lawyer, from education and habit, will gene- rally look with distrust on a cheaper remedy and a simpler code. The practised eye of Brougham, however, discovered no evil in the Local Courts' Bill he brought into par- liament several years ago ; which was ap- proved of by the country, passed by the commons, and rejected by the lords : and, in answer to the objection that cheap and speedy justice would encourage litigation, he boldly ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 July 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LA.UNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR. — Allow me to inform "Teetotaller" that the most intoxicating liquor that can be found, is the simple production of nature : viz. — the sap that exudes from the cocoa nut tree and some species of the palm. When drank before the sun has risen, it is most delicious and cool ; but as soon as heated by the sun's rays, it ferments and becomes a stimulant of the most active principle, and is used by the natives of India ; and com- pletely refutes his idea that nothing produced by nature contains the property of alcohol or fer- mented liquor in its simple state.
