PORT PHILLIP. WE have papers to the 22nd instant. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 July 1842

PORT PHILLIP. WE have papers to the 22nd instant. On Thursday, the 7th instant, the re- mains of a human body, much torn by na- tive dogs, was found near Indented Head, which was identified by a prayer-book in the coat pocket (the only vestige of a gar- ment left) to be that of a man named Welsh, a servant in the employ of the Derwent Company, who had been some time miss- ing.

LORD JOHN RUSSEL'S RESOLUTIONS ON THE INCOME TAX. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 July 1842

LORD JOHN RUSSEL'S RESOLUTIONS ON THE INCOME TAX. 1. That it has been stated to this house, on official authority, that the deficiency of income to meet the expenditure of the country may be estimated, for the years ending 5th of April 1842, at £2,350,000, and on the 5th of April 1843, at £2569,000. 2. That this house is fully sensible of the evil of a continued inadequacy of the pub- lic income to meet the public charges, and will take effectual measures for averting the same in future years. 3. That by a judicious alteration of the duties on corn, by a reduction of the pro- hibitory duty on foreign sugar, and an adjustment of the duties on timber and coffee, the advantage of a moderate price to the community may be combined with an increased revenue to the state. 4. That, in addition to those main articles of general consumption, the interests of trade will be promoted by the repeal or re- duction of various prohibitory and differ- ential duties, and that extended com- merce will ...

DR. LANG'S LECTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 July 1842

DR. LANG'S LECTURES. WE have received the lectures of Dr. 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 be 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 existing system to be severed, and we think it may be affirmed with confidence, that in 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, and fraud, is to be traced in the alliance of church and s...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, July 30, 1842. ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 July 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, July 30, 1842. ENGLISH.   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   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 much dexterity the public curiosity, he has taken the pub- lic by surprise. His sliding scale was not that measure of protection its designation seemed to promise the agriculturists, and when it comes into operation it will leave the corn-laws a...
