THE LAUNCESTON COURIER MONDAY, FEBRUARY 22. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 22 February 1841

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 22. The William brings us our files of Sydney papers to the 9th February. The proposed dis- memberment of the Colony continued to excite the greatest consternation. Another public meeting was held on the 5th instant, for the purpose of petitioning both Houses of Parlia- ment, and also for adopting a letter of instruc- tion, which it was proposed to transmit, to members of parliament and other influential persons in England, respecting the real state of the affairs and prospects of the Colony. The arguments of the speakers rested principally upon one point, viz., that the dismemberment of the colony of New South Wales, would be deeply injurious to its welfare, but they all appear to have overlooked the fact, that justice In one country sometimes renders it necessary that an injury should be inflicted upon another. The execution of the mandates of justice, is often attended with some degree of evil ; and even supposing the point to be fairly es...

Launceston Races. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 1 March 1841

Xiaunceston Races. The following account of tbe first day's racing is taken from the Launceston Advertiser of Thursday. ' The Races commenced here to-day, (Wed nesday,) and as we write this, the people are returning in crowds from the course, after en joying as good a aay s sport as couia well nave been wished. The weather was most delightful, and had the effect of drawing together a larger number of visitors than on many previous occa sions. From the first dawn of morning, the town presented the usual scene of bustle, and tbe note of busy preparation was resounding in every street. From some cause, the attendance on tlie course in tbe early part of the morning was rather thin, and seemed to forbode a dull day's sport ; but as the day advanced, so the crowd gradually thickened, and by twelve o'clock it presented a more tban usual gay and enliven ing spectacle. The Ladies' Stand was well attended, but the number of country visitors was not remarkably large, though comprising many of ...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, MARCH 1. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 1 March 1841

THE SlUfggiSTQgl COURIER. MONDAY, MARCH 1. The Lord Sidmoulh has arrived at Hobart Town from New Zealand wiih fifty emigrants. We have received our files of papers to tbe end of January, but they contain no matter worth extracting. Our contemporaries are sorely annoyed at seeing labourers leave the shores of New Zealand for this colony, and the Gazette proposes, with a gravity exceedingly laughable, that as a piece of retaliation, the New Zealand Company ought to despatch a vessel to this colony, to procure ' two or three hundred hardy woodsmen,' who it adds, ' would be a great acquisition to the newly-formed settlement.' It appears that this funny idea originated as a joke, but the Gazette thinking to improve upon it, recommends that it should be seriously car ried out This proposition certainly adds to the excellence of ' the joke.'

Second Day. On the second day, the course' was better at tended, and racing more spirited. The first race was the Town Plate, of 100 sovereigns, for all ages, heats three miles and a distance. The following horses started — Mr. Gee's Hollymount, Pink and blue. Mr. Dry's Jessie., Blue, and black cap. Mr. T. Field's Banker, Blue, and pink sleeves. Mr. Ive's Filho da Puta, Black and yellow. Jessie took tbe lead, and kept it well for the first two miles, Holymount following close, Philo next, and Banker fourth. In the second mile, Philo pulled up well and looked like a winner, coming in only about a length behind Holly mount, whilst Jessie and Banker were losing ground rapidly. In the third mile Philo again pulled up on the heavy ground, but to no pur pose, the ' bullock as Hollymount is surnamed, pushed a-head in the last half mile and won by about two lengths. When just inside the dis tance post Banker bolted off the course, and threw his rider, who remounted, rode in and thus saved h...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. Sir, As a letter published in the Cornwall Chronicle, of the 13th ins'., and signed ' Frederick Forth,' may possibly lead to misapprehension, permit me through he medium of your Journal to explain that the Rev.

POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 8 March 1841

POETRY. Love may dwell in rosy bowers, Laugh and'sport among the flowers ; Plume his wings with colours bright, And fill bis eyes with sunny light; He may twine a flow'rv wreath. And give it sweetness with his breath; And tip his shafts with gems or gold, For hearts that maybe bought or sold. But rosy chaplets will he bind, And leave th' attendant thorns behind, Or when he decks his wing so bright. Pluck out the plume desigri'd for flight ; Will the sun light in his eyes Never fade, or when he tries His golden shafts— ah, who can 'tell, If love e'er meant his victims well.
