LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, July 23, 1842. THE LEGISLATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 July 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, July 23, 1842. THE LEGISLATURE. Oun 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 oflicial 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 posses...

TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 July 1842

TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS. Instead of the usual advertising sheet an extra number of the Examiner will be pub- lished neat 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 be 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 withsto...

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 my 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 nu...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. On Tuesday evening, the Rev. Mr. Garrott 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- eretary. Not only did his Excellency aceede 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 ridicu- 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.

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 personalities, 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-...

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 ; ...
