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 Antic, 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 tlfere 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 of a tree yieldi...

(From our Second Edition of last week.) A special general meeting of the Van Diemen's Land Insurance Company is ad- vertised for the 18th, to consider the case of Tetley v. Sherwin. 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 the   short time it lasted, were most vivid, and shot up fronm 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.

THE TEETOTALLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 July 1842

THE TEETOTALLERS.   AT their meeting on Tuesday it was stated by Mr. Sherwin — in language not distin- guished for suavity — that the statement which appeared in our journal of last week was untrue. An interested rival might be expected to describe an error as a lie ; but a distinction between them will not be over- looked by the gentleman and christian. Our statement was, however, substantially correct, and Mr. Sherwin may have our authority if he requires it. The teetotal party have no just grounds of complaint against the Examiner ; unless to oppose their opinions is a crime. We have felt ourselves bound to reply to argu- ments and facts ; not to vituperation. To us it matters not from whence alleged truth may flow. To reject it, because the writer is despicable, is like refusing a letter be- cause the postman is uncivil. We may receive his message, without replying to his abuse. If the teetotallers believe that the Exa- miner is really the organ of the Exes, the lin...

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 Toryismn ; 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...

THE NEW MANURE. To the Editor of the Bristol Mirror. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 July 1842

THE NEW MANURE. To the Editor of the Bristol Mirror. SIR. — I avail myself of the earliest possible op- portunity to communicate to the public, and more especially to the members and friends of the Bris- tol Philosophical Institution, those precise details which I was very unexpectedly requested not to divulge on the day I undertook to describe the principles of Mr. Daniel's manure, in contribut- mg to the " Promotion of Vegetable Growth." This request was made to me after the advertise-   ments for the lecture had appeared, in conse- quence of an unexpected delay in reference to the foreign patents. The general principles under which the manure would be beneficial to vegetable growth were then fully canvassed, and it was stated that the mate- rials of combustion were used otherwise than by combustion to attain this end. What I have now to supply, is simply to name the materials of combustion used for this purpose. They are as under :— lst. — Wood of every description ;...
