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

MISCELLANY.   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 almost oc- cupy a whole line in...

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

LAUNCESTON. Wheat may be quoted this week at from 6s. to 6s. 6d. per bushel. Merchants in town are pur- chasing at these rates, but the transactions are limited. It is expected government will require an additional supply : we hope so, and the sooner it is reqnired the better. Government is not likely to purchase at a lower rate than now rules, and the holders will be thankful for an opportu- nity of quitting a portion of their large stocks. WHEAT, 5s. 6d. per bushel, with little demand. BARLEY — English, from 5s. 6d. to 6s. per bushel ; Cape, 4s. 6d. ditto. OATS — feed, 4s. per bushel ; for seed, 5s. 6d. ditto ; but neither in demand. FLOUR — first quality, £18 ; second, £16 ; third, £14 per 2000lbs. Return of grain and flour imported at the port of Launceston, during the week ended 9th July, 1842, inclusive — Nil. Return of grain and flour exported from the port of Launceston, during the week ending 9th July, 1842, inclusive — Oats, 720 bushels ; wheat, 4600 ditto; flour, 38 tons....

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. SIR SLIDING SCALE, " It is among the wonders of our times that such a man should be the first minister of an em- pire on which the sun never sets." — The Examiner March 5, 1842. A Statesman ! pshaw, a thing of shreds and patches, Where not one colour with another matches ! Arch Harlequin confessed for sliding tricks, A very Joseph's coat in politics ! Of so much brain (and hardly that) possess'd Would make a parish overseer at best ; But just as fit to wield the helm of State As the grave Alderman of A—————.     He who aspires to earn a Statesman's fame, And to his country leave an honoured name, Should have a soul from party shackles free, That scorns to barter its integrity ; Should soar above each narrow, partial view, No purblind leader of a purblind crew ; Should rate each relique of an elder day At its true worth, — no slavish homage pay ; Should lead the van where True and False en- gage, Not lag behind the spirit of the age ; Shoul...

Minutes of Evidence taken before the Sub- Committee of the Legislative Council, appointed by the Lieutenant-Governor to report upon the Insolvent Act. Committee Room, 11th September, 1841. ROBERT PITCAIRN, Esq., called in and ex- amined. Q. How long have you been practising as a solicitor, and have you been engaged in many insolvencies under the present Act ? A. I have been practising as a solicitor for fifteen years, and have been employed in a few cases under the Act. Q. Has your attention been drawn to the provisions of the Act ; and if so, what is your opinion of its working ? A. Yes ; and I think the Act capable of amendment in some important particulars. Q. Will you have the goodness to state those particulars ? A. The first and most important is no- ticed in the memorial now before the com- mittee, and that is the necessity existing of a registry of insolvencies, in reference to the transfer of landed property. At present there are no means of ascertaining whether a person co...

ANDREW CROMBIE, Esq., called in and examined. Q. You practise as a solicitor in the co- lony ? A. I do. Q. Have you been professionally engaged in any cases under the Insolvent Act, and if so, will you be so good as to inform the committee what have been the general effects of the working of that Act ? A. As assignee of many insolvent estates, I have had occasion to notice particularly the working of the Act, and I am of opinion that its general effects have been beneficial. It has, in a great measure, accomplished two important objects : first, the equal dis- tribution of the estate of an insolvent among his crediters ; and, secondly, the protection and relief of the unfortunate debtor himself. Q. Can you suggest any alterations or improvements in the present Act ? A. I shall now suggest certain alterations which I should consider improvements : with this view I shall notice certain clauses of the Act in the order in which they stand in it. The first section which I would notice is...
