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 Biristol 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- ing 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 :— 1st. — Wood of every description...

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...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 July 1842

The Radical Tait, in his number for last February, thus describes " the next move of the reformers." Whether are we first to witness the im- mediate and total abolition of the Bread Tax, and a free trade in the prime necessa- ries of life, — or a National Combination, consisting of all denominations of Reform- era, to obtain for every citizen his constitu- tional right, the enjoyment of the elective franchise ? — To this alternative we have fairly come. One or other of these things must take priority ; and from present ap- pearances we are led to conclude that, after all, the first in order must be a general agi- tation for complete Suffrage. The Free Trade party — the voice of the country, more properly, if ever it was decidedly uttered upon any question, has declared, that no compromise with the Monopolists can be submitted to ; that nothing less will meet the exigency than absolute and un- conditional repeal of the imposts upon the people's food, and the knocking off of the fette...
