LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Wednesday, July 27, 1842. NEW INSOLVENT ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 27 July 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Wednesday, July 27, 1842. NEW INSOLVENT ACT. WE need hardly remark that the following article has been furnished by a gentleman practically acquainted with the working of the insolvent law. The professional know- ledge and minute investigation displayed, will at once entitle his remarks to a careful perusal. We willingly give place to his communication, as we are satisfied he is better qualified to judge of the detail of the proposed measure than we are. WE have carefully examined the draft of this Act, and compared it with the Act at present in operation. All the sections in the present Act are included in the draft, with the exception of those relating to the election of assignees, and the 38th section, which relates to as- signments by debtors of their estates and effects to trustees for the benefit of all their creditors, but with certain alterations which we shall notice. The 2nd section of the new Act em- powers the Lieutenant-Governor to appoint commissio...

ROBERT KERR, Esq., called in and examined. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 27 July 1842

ROBERT KERR, Esq., called in and examined. Q. You are a merchant in this colony ? A. I am. Q. Will you have the goodness to inform the committee whether your attention has been drawn to the working of the present Insolvent Act, and if so, whether any al- terations have suggested themselves to your mind as being desirable to be made in that act ? A. My observations will be limited to the 80th section of the Act, with respect to which I am of opinion that individuals in this colony entrusting the sale of their goods to others, should have the same pro- tection as is given by this section to persons not resident in the colony ; more especially because they would be protected, had the sheriff proceeded to a sale by writ of fieri facias, on giving the sheriff notice that the goods were their property. I would instance the cases of settlers sending their grain or wool to agents in town for sale, who when they become in- solvent, and in possession of the property, the assignee to the estat...

T. W. ROWLANDS, Esq., called in and examined. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 27 July 1842

T. W. ROWLANDS, Esq., called in and examined. Q. As a solicitor, have you had much practice under the Insolvent Act, and how have you found that act to work ? A. I have been compelled to have con- siderable practice under this Act, and have found it to work very badly. Q. Are you prepared to suggest any al- terations which you think desirable to be introduced into this Act ? A. Yes. As a declaration of insolvency affects the real estate of the insolvent, and there are no means of ascertaining who has been declared insolvent, I recommend that a record book should be kept for this pur- pose at the Registrar of Deeds' office, with the other records of that department ; that a memorial on parchment should be filed in the same office, containing the name, address, and occupation of the insolvent, date of insolvency, names of provisional and permanent assignees, dates of meetings, when order of discharge made, and if post- poned, why, and for what period, on whose petition declared insolv...

WILLIAM SORELL, Esq., called in and examined. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 27 July 1842

WILLIAM SORELL, Esq., called in and examined. Q. Are you the Commissioner of Insol- vent Estates for Hobart Town, and how long have you acted as such ? A. I am, and have acted as such since the 1st January, 1841. Q. Will you have the goodness to furnish the committee with the returns called for in paper marked A, which was referred to you for this purpose ? A. It is not in my power to furnish such returns ; I beg, however, to submit one em- bracing a period commencing from the 1st. January, 1841, to the 13th of the present month (September) — [The return is received and marked B.] Q. Will you have the goodness to favour the committee with your opinion as to the working of the present Insolvent Act ? A. I am of opinion that the Insolvent Act has, on the whole, worked beneficially, and that two important objects have been effected by it — I mean the protection from imprisonment of honest but unfortunate debtors, and the distribution of insolvents' estates equally amongst their credito...

Sectlon 55th. — The words within brackets in the second line should be left out, and a provision similar to that in the latter part of the 49th clause inserted. 5.

MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 27 July 1842

MISCELLANY. MAID SERVANTS AND THEIR FRIENDS. — Every master and mistress in the United   Kingdom knows what a maid servant's friend is. Sometimes he is a brother, some-   sometimes he is a cousin (often a cousin),   and sometimes a father, who really wears well, and carries his age amazingly ! He   comes down the area, in at the window, or through a door left ajar. Sometimes a maid servant, like a hare " has many friends." The master of the house, after washing his hands in the back kitchen, feels behind the door for a jack-towel, and lays hold of a friend's nose. " Friends are shy ;" sometimes a footman breaks a friend's shins, by plunging into the coal-cellar for a shovel of nobbies. We speak feelingly, our own abode having been once turned into a friend's meeting-house ; a fact we became aware of through the medium of a smoky chimney ; but a chimney will smoke when there is a journeyman baker up it. — Derby- shire Courier.

LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 27 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 required the better. Government is not likely to purchase at a lower rate than now rules, and the holders will be thankful for an opportu- nty 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.

MEDICAL, &c. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 27 July 1842

MEDICAL, &c. Dr. HAYGARTH has favored us with a letter: but although we are ever disposed to open our columns for the benefit of the public, we have resolved never knowingly to in- sert a libel. We commend Dr. Haygarth for attaching his name to his communica- tion, which appeared in another print. Such is not the custom of the colony, when persons are to be injured by the press. It shows that he is a man of courage, as well as of professional dignity. But what has brought this gentleman into a contest with which he has no visible concern? He has rendered his chivalry indisputable, but not so his prudence: and we can only ac -  count for his appearance on the supposition that he has the organ of combativeness par- ticularly large, and that of cautiousness re- markably small. When we see a number of gallant knights assailing an individual, we are strongly in- clined to lend our aid to the less-supported combatant, irrespective of the merits of his cause. We are unable to deter...
