POETRY. THE TWEED. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 July 1842

POETRY. THE TWEED. On thy banks flowing Tweed still my fancy shall wander, Though away from the land of the thistle and thee ; And follow thy course to its latest meander, The place of my birth where thou meetest the sea. For there is a language in thee, sweeping river ; A voice in the woodlands that shadow thy braes, A home and a heart by thy side that shall ever Be one with existence, be dear to my lays. Midst the day dreams of boyhood, ere youthful ambition Had sung the young thrillings of beauty or love, Thy banks were my study, my only tuition The sound of thy waters, the coo of the dove. Stream of nativity, witness with heaven Of my vow, on the breath of thy murmurs con- veyed, When pure as thy fountain, confiding, was given To me the fond heart of may favorite maid. How can I forget thee, my soul's deepest feeling Now tells me that thou art remembered indeed, For to think of the maid of my heart, is revealing A tale that revisits the banks of the Tweed. Though years yet may n...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 July 1842

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. On Tuesday evening, the Rev. Mr. Garrett de- livered a lecture on the " The infinite variety which characterises every department of the ma- terial world." Mr. Breton, president, in the chair. The letter from his Excellency, published in the Examiner on the 9th instant, was read by the se- cretary. Not only did his Excellency accede to the request that he would become patron to the Institute, but expressed the deep interest he felt in its success. The lecturer made some remarks on the ob- jections that had been brought forward by one or two parties. It had been said that it was riducu- lous to establish an Institute without apparatus ; and while he acknowledged the deficiency was felt by the lecturers, yet everything must have a beginning, and every right-minded member of the community would rejoice with him that such an institute had been commenced. The child of a day could not be expected to walk forth in the full vigour of manhood, neither was perfection at-...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. ON DRILLING AND HAND-THRASHING MACHINES. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 July 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. ON DRILLING AND HAND-THRASHING MACHINES. SIR, — Before I commence my opinions and recommendation on the system of drill- ing and notice of the machine mentioned, allow me particularly to call your attention to an addition to your journal which, in my opinion, your subscribers and readers will hail with satisfhction, and tend to increase circulation. Judging from the manner in which your paper has been so far conducted you are desirous of rendering it a vehicle of information generally ; not one of abuse and personaities, so disgusting and unin- teresting as such paragraphs and letters are.   What I beg to suggest is, that in addition to the mass of information judiciously gleaned from the journals of the adjoining colonies, with some English extracts, (the latter, no doubt, will be more profuse as   you progress, and you have had time to ob- tain a regular supply of English papers), you will endeavour to obtain, by ...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 July 1842

PORT PHILLIP. Papers to the 11th of July have been received per Corsair. Messrs.

The bushrangers, who were executed on Tuesday last, were buried outside the fence of the cemetry ; the bodies, after remain- ing the usual time, were removed in their shell coffins, and committed to the earth. — Gazette, July 2.

ON the 7th of May we published in this Journal the New Norfolk Address on the subject of Quit Rents. We now subjoin his Excellency's reply :— Government House, 13th July, 1842. GENTLEMEN, — I have given to the Ad- dress now presented by you that full con- sideration which is due, not more to the subject discussed in it than to the character and station of the very respectable indi- viduals whose sentiments it conveys, and who are desirous that I should stay the collection of the Quit Rents until certain claims to a set-off against them for the maintenance of convicts, which they con- ceive to have been overlooked, shall have been investigated and decided upon by her Majesty's Government. It is, I assure you, very gratifying to me to be able to state in reply that not only the points to which allusion has thus been made have not been overlooked by this Govern- ment, but also that the reference which you deem so desirable has been actually made, and the decision long since received ; ...

MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 July 1842

MIXCELLANY.       THE BREAD-TAXERS SELF-CONDEMNED. In the late Edinburgh Conference on the subject of the corn laws, none of the speakers made a more argumentative dis- play, or was more rapturously received, than George Thompson, Esq., and probably   nothing that he then said had a more elec- trifying effect on the numerous audience, than the following. — " Don't be dependent on foreigners !" This is another favourite cry of the corn-law makers. Methinks if they were to practise the doctrine they preach, they would be poor indeed. Let us pay a friendly visit to the man who preaches this doctrine, and let us see whether he lives up to it ; for the beauty of all preaching, is that which is by practice. Let us go and dine with him at his own house, at seven, just after he has left the House of Lords, where he has silenced Lord Radnor by crying " Don't be dependant on foreigners for your supplies," and shouts of " hear, hear" will alm...
