LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, July 23, 1842. THE LEGISLATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 July 1842
LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, July 23, 1842. THE LEGISLATURE. OUR readers will easily imagine that what- ever confidence we may possess in our colonial legislature, that confidence is not founded in its constitution. In plain straightforward questions, which neither involve private interests nor party supre- macy, we have no doubt that the object of our law-makers is simply to do right. Experience has taught that beyond this human virtue is not easily extended : still we do not undervalue public vigilance, or question that an influence is exercised by the press, in favour of the people, which moderates the selfishness and rigour of their rulers. A loud outcry has been heard against the dependence of his Excellency's official councillors. There may be a needless pa- rade in the formality of taking their sepa- rate votes, when they hold their seats by their office, and are compelled by that office to follow in the governor's wake. Such a course, notwithstanding, is inevita- ble. They...
THE MONIED INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 July 1842
THE MONIED INTEREST. The Hobart Town Advertiser is described as the organ of government, we are there- fore disposed to examine his opinions with unusual deference and attention ; but the leader of the 19th instant has propounded sentiments which are certainly not held by any government on earth. A speculation on the embarrassments of England, how- ever widely it may depart from political truth, is in these colonies harmless enough ; but we regret to find a respectable mem- ber of the press inculcating the absurdest prejudices, and rousing the worst of pas- sions. He charges on the monied interest every principle that is vile, anti-national, and cruel. But we ask after all what is the monied interest ? In the imagination of our contemporary it is a divan of big bashaws, congregated in some secret haunt to buy up their countrymen, goods, and chattels, and to sell them to some customer equally impalpable and invisible. This monied interest in fact comprehends every man who has a sover...
INSOLVENT LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 July 1842
INSOLVENT LAW. Happily the time has passed away when criminality and insolvency were convertible terms. It was by a long and laborious process that the one was separated from the other. The penalties of crime and in- solvency were the same. The unhappy debtor fell into the hands of the individual whose vindictiveness was stimulated by his loss. " The law commanded him to be sold with his wife and children and pay- ment to be made ; " nor was this all ; the ancient Roman law authorised the creditors to drag the debtor into the market place and hew him to pieces. Such too was long the spirit of more modern legislation. The creditor could incarcerate his debtor while living, and seize his body when dead. But debt is not a crime, and the legis- lator has at length perceived it. The cus- toms of society, which commit the property of men to the management and discretion of others, divide the responsibility of loss between him who entrusts and him who loses. The debtor hazards all he posse...

TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS. Instead of the usual advertising sheet an extra number of the Examiner will be pub- lished next Wednesday. We have adopted this plan so that our readers may be fur- nished with such a notice of the proposed Insolvent Act, as its importance demands, We copy the following from The Home and Foreign Missionary Record for the Church of Scotland. It is contained in a letter from the Rev. Alexander Duff, D.D., and written from Calcutta in the latter part of last year.— With the signs and tokens throughout the world at large, I cannot at present inter- meddle. I can only bestow a passing glance on some of those now exhibited in the In- dian portion of the great vineyard. In noticing these, however, it would he worse than unfair to put the people of India on a par with the emancipated negroes of the West, or the tabooed islanders of the South- ern Ocean. There, men had to do with loose traditions and fluctuating customs. Here, we have to do with systems that have withstoo...
