POETRY. WHEN LOVE, WHO RULED. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842
WHIEN LOVE, WHO RULED. 1 ? 'n Lovec, who ruled as Admiral o'er His rosy mother's isles of light,. Was cruising off the Paphlan shore, A sail at sunset hove in sight. "A chase, a chase I my Cupids all," Said Love, the little Admiral. Aloft the winged sailors sprung, And swarming up the mast like bees, The snow-white sails expanding tflung, Like broad mangolias to the breeze. " Yo ho, yo Ito, my Cupids all I" Said Love, the little Admiral. The chase was o'er-the bark was caught, The winged crew her freight explored ; And found 'twas just as Love had thought, For all was contrabandl aboard. "A prize, a prize, my Cupids all I" Said Love, the little Adniral. Safe stow'd in many a package there, And labell'd slyly o'er as " Glass," Were lots of all tht illegal ware, Love's Custom-nHouse forbids to pass. " O'erhaul, o'erhaul, my Cuplds all," Said Love, the little Admiral. Fa'se curls they found, of every hue, With rosy blushes really made; And teeth of ivory, good as noew, SFor veteran's i...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842
TO THE EDITOR OF TIIE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. BSn.-If you think the general truth embodied in the following extract from the works of a cele brated American divine, have any particular ap plication at the present time, you will perhaps give it a place il your journal. The exhibition of the character in its own native deformity, if it produces no beneficial effect upon the practised and hardened slanderer, may be the means of de terring others from entering upon a course in which they cannot fail to reap lasting disgrace. "A slanderer is a common enemy. All consi derate persons know and feel this truth, and guard themnselves with watchiul care against his attacks. So thr as their circumstances will permit they shun, and warn their children and friends to shun his company. Not mere suspicion, but a well founded and deeply filt cons iction of his hostility to the common Interests of ilen, meets him where ever he goes: his presence creates only pain: his tongue is a blast upon human comfor...

HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842
HOBART TOWN. The various reports of the state of the Sydney market caused much uncertainty as to the prices here. We know of sales effected varying from 9s. to 7s. 3d. It is now ascertained that the maxi- mum price for Derwent wheat at Sydney is 10s., while the best Australian will fetch only 7s., and foreign wheat scarcely half that price. Thus the superiority of our produce is practically established beyond question. The price this morning may be taken at an average of about 7s. 9d., perhaps 8s., and it is not a falling but a firm demand ; we trust the agriculturists will allow no inducement to tempt them to an advance beyond 10s. The following is the market report :-Wheat 7s. 6d. to 8s. per bushel; fine flour 20s. per cwt.; seconds, 18s. per ditto; oats 5s. 6d. to 5s. 9d., per bushel ; barley, English, 6s. to 6s. 6d. per ditto ; maize 6s. per ditto ; hay 4s. 6d. to 5s. per cwt.; potatoes, 6s. to 8s. per ditto ; fowls, 4s. to 5s. per couple ; eggs, 1. 9d. to 2s. per dozen ; fresh ...
SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842
SYDNEY. &nbsp; GRAIN AND FLOUR.-This market remains in- active ; the amount of business done since our last has been exceedingly small ; the millers are &nbsp; nearly without colonial or Van Diemen's Land wheat, and the few holders of the latter are firm at 10s. per bushel. OATS are in demand ; the retailers are charging 6s. per bushel ; only one load arrived during the week. BARLEY.-None received since last report ; what is on sale is charged at 5s. per bushel. MAIZE.-None having arrived from the inte- rior during the last fortnight, the dealers are charging from 5s. to 6s. 6d. per bushel. HAY has been plentiful, about 100 loads having arrived since last report ; the prices given yester- day, ranged from £11 to £13 per ton. Pork, 60s. per barrel ; hams, 7d. per lb. ; hyson skin tea, £8 to £9 per chest; sugar, £30 to £35 per ton ; tobacco, 10d. to 1s. per Ib. ; B.

LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842
LAUNCESTON. The wheat market is dull ; it is difficult to effect sales at 6s. 6d. per bushel for a good sample : how- ever it is not likely that the price will long remain at this very low rate, but exorbitant prices ought not to be anticipated. BARLEY-English, may be quoted at from 5s. 6d. to 6s. per bushel ; Cape barley 4s. 6d. per bushel. OAT--feed, 4s.; for seed, 4s. 6d. to 5s. per bushel. FLour-first quality, £18 ; second, £16 ; third, £14 per 2000lbs.

Return of grain and flour imported at the port of Launceston, during the week ending 12th March 1842, inclusive-Nil. The general market remains without alteration.

MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842
MISCELLANY, Blasting by Galvanism.--The new plan proposed by Mr. Martin Roberts, of blast- ing rocks and mines by galvanism to ex- plode the gunpowder, is detailed by him in a letter just published, addressed to the Agricultural Society of Scotland. This pro- cess of exploding gunpowder by galvanism has been in some degree familiarised by the practice of it by Col. Paisley, in his operations to blow up the wreck of the Royal George. This mode of operating, however, Mr. Roberts also claims as his own. By applying it to blasting it offers many and peculiar advantages. In the first place, it prevents all danger from the fuse &nbsp; firing the gunpowder before the man who lights it has time to escape. It enables all the men to remove to a place of safety be- fore the explosion, and it determines to a moment the time at which the explosion takes place. The plan adopted by Mr. Roberts, of charging the hole with gun- powder and closing it with loose sand, is extremely curious, and ...
