ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 July 1842

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. THE LATE HURRICANE — Dreadful Ship- wrecks. — Within the last three or four days accounts of the most deplorable description have been received by the authorities at Lloyd's respecting the loss of an immense number of vessels during the late fright- ful hurricane on the evening of Wednesday week, which has not been equalled in vio- lence for many years past. The sacrifice of human life has been very great, and it is feared, from the immense quantity of wreck that has since been washed on the coast, that many vessels foundered during the progress of the storm. It has been as- certained that upwards of twenty vessels were wrecked during the night of the 26th ultimo, as will be proved by the following particulars :— Shortly after the commence- ment of the gale a large smack called the Alicia, belonging to Cork, drove amongst the rocks off St. Bride's Bay, near Milford, and almost immediately became a wreck. The first person who left the vessel was a seamen named J...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 July 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR. — With your kind permission, I intend a word to your correspondent '' Anti-Humbug."   The sap of the coa-nut tree " is the simple pro- duction of nature," and as such, it intoxicates no man ; but it is downright " humbug" (an unlovely word) to say that it '' exudes" in any natural man- ner. No, no, friend Anti or Antie, if you ever saw a cocoa-nut tree, you ought to know that it is by purely artificial means that toddy is obtained, and   then only by destroying nature's powers of repro- duction ; the tree must be climbed, the opening flower severed from its stem, and an ugly pot fixed there in its stead to catch the liquid designed by " nature" for nobler purposes. Living nature certainly furnishes no alcohol. Let man take of any tree as his God bestows it, and who will be intoxicated ? " I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, July 16, 1842. MINISTERIAL MEASURES. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 July 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, July 16, 1842. MINISTERIAL MEASURES. SIR ROBERT PEEL may be a Tory in heart, and his ultimate view may be the triumph of Toryism ; he is strong for its defence, but the moment he becomes the leader of its friends he conducts them into measures which, unless in desperation, a Whig ministry would hardly have dared to propose. The disclosure of his financial plans must have taken the country by sur- prise, had it not before seen examples of the premier's dexterity. He promised the agriculturists a sliding scale, and they have it : but it cannot be matter of astonishment that the Duke of Buckingham, who really meant protection, has thought it most de- corous to retire from a ministry by whom both he and his party have been com- pletely outwitted. The reduction of duty on foreign timber, proposed by Lord J. Rus- sell, is to be carried into effect, but without advancing that on colonial ; and, indeed, Sir Robert promises a reduction of duty on seven hundred ...

COURTS OF EQUITY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 July 1842

COURTS OF EQUITY. THE court of Mr. Justice Montagu is highly amusing to a spectator, though we should conjecture not the most pleasing to the bar. The keen and satirical judge seems gratified in exposing the errors and in chastising the negligence he unsparingly imputes to all beneath him. Mr. Attorney General assumes the attitude of silent de- fiance, and the chief constable receives his half-yearly castigation with becoming meekness. The sound lessons, administered   by his Honor to the latter functionary, would almost atonc for the bitterness with which they were conveyed. Mr. Montagu spoke like an Englishman, as indeed he generally does, when he denounced the efforts of policemen to extract from pri- soners confessions of their guilt. It did not strike us as equally just that his Honor, who displayed so much pity for for one "poor devil," should resent the natural joy of another, when the jury ac- quitted him. To us it appears something like tyranny to subject a pri...

GOODWIN V. KNIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 July 1842

GOODWIN v. KNIGHT. IT is said colonists are tenacious of their minutest rights, and strongly addicted to litigation; and truly our busy and bustling people have afforded abundant instances that the assertion is not founded merely in fancy. Our main places of resort are the courts of law, and our magistrates and com- missioners occupy, in uninterrupted rota- tion, the shrine of our orisons. What with innumerable calls at the police-oflice — in- evitable in a penal colony — attendance as suitors at the " little-go," or as plaintiff's or jarors at the sessions, or as creditors in that most popular court where the process of " white-washing" is performed with such dexterity that it leaves the Ethiopian as black as ever, or in other capacities which the politeness of a journalist will hardly permit him to name, a large portion of our time, reflections, and conversation is occu- pied in discussing the discrepancy between what is and what ought to be. The dulness of the ordinary routine ha...
