LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, July 30, 1842. ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 July 1842
LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, July 30, 1842. ENGLISH. &nbsp; THE financial measures of Sir Robert Peel have passed the House of Commons, and only await the sanction of the Lords. That they will be palatable in the upper house is very improbable : but the peers, naturally leaning to tory rule, will hardly be &nbsp; inclined to endanger the party in power by their rejection. Had Sir Robert Peel an- nounced his measures when he became minister of the crown, he would have found himself in a position widely different from that in which he stands. As a state doctor, he has provided a dose, which neither party would have been inclined to accept, had they possessed more leisure for consul- tation ; but by evading with such dexterity the public curiosity, he has taken the pub- lic by surprise. His sliding scale was not that measure of protection its designation &nbsp; seemed to promise the agriculturists, and when it comes into operation it will leave the corn-laws a...
DR. LANG'S LECTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 July 1842
DR. LANG'S LECTURES. WE have reccived the lectures of Dr. &nbsp; Lang on the Australasian System of Re- ligious Establishments. It is impossible that a question, in which so many are in- timately concerned, on which the best and wisest men have so much differed, should he discussed by Dr. Lang, without exciting considerable attention and feeling. Still we hope, that the wrath he imagines his lecture will produce, is not to be seriously expected. Here are no strong ties to the &nbsp; existing system to be severed, and we think &nbsp; it may be affirmed with confidence, that in &nbsp; a wealthy and British colony, those who most largely share in state support, if con- vinced of its impropriety, would feel no misgivings in resigning themselves to the generous justice of their people. The reasoning of Dr. Lang, even though his facts were unquestioned, is not in our view entirely tenable. If it is true that every species of cruelty, oppression, du- plicity...
TOTALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 July 1842
TOTALISM. &nbsp; &nbsp; OUR readers who have embraced Tee- totalism must not be alarmed at finding their usual denominative curtailed. It is not intended to deprive them of its honours ; much less is it a covert attack on their favourite beverage. Our hereditary attach- ment to tea has never been shaken by all the doctors have laid to its account. We should resent, as actively as themselves, any attempt to lower the strength of sou- chong, or to obstruct its free admission and use. It is the " cup that cheers but not inebriates." The press of England has introduced the new designation, and it appears to us a step towards ration- ality. The meeting on Tuesday last was nume- rous and merry. We have been censured for omitting a reference to some of the former ; but, now all parties understand each other better, we shall probably be- stow a larger space in recording the elo- quence of our friends. It is certain that Totalism has yielded its quota of amuse- ment and grati...

(From our Second Edition of last week.)

The Ocean Queen, from London, has en- tered the Heads. CORONER'S INQUEST. — An inquest was held at the Queen's Arms, at Longford, Norfolk Plains, on Saturday last, on view of the body of a middle aged man named John Duly. It appeared that the deceased had left the Liffey rivulet on Friday after- noon, with the intention of proceeding on Saturday morning by the coach to the hos- pital at Launceston. After eating a hearty meal, he retired to bed at an early hour, perfectly sober. At daylight, the following morning, he was discovered in a raised po- sition in his bed, but quite dead. After a patient investigation by the coroner, the jury found the deceased " died by the visit- ation of G...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 July 1842
TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR. — I beg you will do me the justice to give place to the enclosed communication in &nbsp; the columns of the Examiner. I believe you would not willingly injure &nbsp; any one unjustly to please any body by sup- pressing a document, and refusing the opportunity of self-justification, rendered necessary in consequence of the liberties used with my name in your comments re- pecting the medical disturbances of the Messrs. Pugh and Grant. I take the liberty of requesting, as you have commented upon my letter, that you will favor me by re-perusing its contents, &nbsp; so as to acquaint yourself with the facts it contains. — I am, sir, your obedient servant, BURTON GEO. HAYGARTH. &nbsp; SIR. — Give me leave to correct a mistake you have fallen into, in identifying my let- ter with other persons. No medical gen- tleman in this town was aware that such letter was either purposed, or in existence, before it was in t...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. ON DRILLING AND HAND-THRASHING MACHINES (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 July 1842
TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. ON DRILLING AND HAND-THRASHING MACHINES (Continued from our last.) SIR. — I now propose to give you some hints, from several years' practical expe- rience, on '' Drilling Corn ;" a matter far more important than many of your settlers may be aware of. To plough land well is undoubtedly essential, but the quantity and manner of depositing the seed also demands serious enquiry and attention, in order to receive the full benefit of the soil, and its blessings which the Giver of all good would send to man for his ingenuity and labour. The great advantages to be derived from the system, are — the regular depth which the seed is deposited, the protection of the seed from birds, the loss sustained both in quantity and quality by the exposure of the roots of the stem to the sun being scarcely covered with soil, and a saving of seed. I have witnessed in the colony on one hun- dred and eighty acres a loss of eight bushels per annum, or 1440 bushels, en...
THE STADE DUTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 July 1842
THE STADE DUTIES. THE Edinburgh Review of January has, at some length, discussed the legality of the duties levied by the King of Hanover. A mixed commission was appointed to meet at Dresden in the early part of the year to investigate this subject. British merchants have from time to time memo- rialised the government on the injustice and oppression involved in these exactions, but hitherto remonstrance has been fruit- less. It is true Mr. Hutt brought the matter before the imperial parliament, and by his able advocacy of the mercantile in- terests enlisted the sympathies of both sides of the House. A commission was in consequence appointed last year ; but when Mr. Ward proceeded to the conti- nent, and called on his Hanoverian col- leagues to fix a basis upon which their future proceedings might rest, they de- clined to megotiate on any basis whatever : and thus the disagreement was thrown back into the hands of Great Britain and Hanover. &nbsp; The interests of Great Brit...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. ALDERMAN PIRIE has been knighted, in consequence of holding the office of Lord Mayor at the birth of the Prince of Wales. GREAT LAUGHTER. In the Times' report of a speech by Sir J. Tyrrell, on Thursday, we find the following :— " Though they (the agriculturists) on that side of the House might be accused of being as dull as the animal that browsed on the thistle (great laughter), still their obtusity was not si great as to call for that fixed duty for which the noble lord contended. (Hear.) It was said in the east that when they crossed a desert they putt a don- key in front (loud laughter) ; these mea- sures were not subject of laughter ; it was said when they crossed a desert in the east they put a donkey in front — (roars of laughter, which interrupted the hon. mem- ber for some time, who at length resumed) — that you put a donkey in front. (Shouts of laughter.) On its subsiding the hon. member resumed) — you put a donkey in front — (loud roars of laughter, ...
HORRIBLE MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 July 1842
HORRIBLE MURDER. &nbsp; A murder has come to light at a villa on Putney Heath, which rivals the Greenacre murder in circumstances of atrocity. The mode of the discovery was singular. At Roehampton is Granard Lodge, the resi- dence of Mr. Quelaz Shiell, an East India merchant. Mr. Shiell's coachman, Daniel Good, a middle-aged Irishman, called in a chaise, on Wednesday evening (April 6), at the shop of Mr. Collingbourn, a pawn- broker in Wandsworth, and bought a pair of black knee-breeches, which he took on credit. The shop-boy saw him at the same time put a pair of trowsers under his coat- skirt, and place them with the breeches in the chaise. Mr. Collingbourn followed him out, and charged him with the theft ; but he denied it, and hurriedly drove off. The pawnbroker sent a policeman, William Gardner, after the thief ; and with the officer went the shop-boy, and Robert Speed, a neighbour. Good lived at the stables about a quarter of a mile from Mr. Shiell's house ; and when t...
