THE JOSEPHIAD. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 July 1842

THE JOSEPHIAD. To power restored by lords of large domains, Sir Joseph Surface place and pay regains. The lords of acres knew not what to do, They sought, but sought in vain, a leader new. " Stanley is headstrong, Goulburn cannot speak ; Gladstone's too young, and Buckingham's too   weak. Sir Joseph has betrayed us oft before, And yet Sir Joseph we must try once more. That he has brains, both friends and foes agree, He only wants a heart, and so do we." Obsequious Joseph promised much, and vowed " Low rents, cheap bread, shall never be allowed." And so the bargain's struck — the business done — Joseph's majority is — ninety-one. Once safe in place, Sir Joseph craved delay ; Puts off to four months hence the evil day : Sends home the landlords to receive their rents, And gravely asks the cause of discontents. Assumes compassion, if he has it not, For working-men's hereditary lot. Wonders extremely as he eats his dinner At what the deuce now ails the cotton-spinner. Mills...

ADVANTAGES OF THE INSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 3 August 1842

ADVANTAGES OF THE INSTITUTION. A subscribed capital in England, afford- ing perfect security, which, being partially invested in this colony, will contribute to instead of detracting from the profits of the company, as is the case of the English so- cieties, who pay a higher rate of interest to the shareholders than is yielded by their investments. The trustees are in possession of ample funds within the colony to meet losses when they shall occur, which funds will be from time to time increased by further re- mittances from the company in England, and by the investment of colonial pre- miums. Rates of premium lower than those of the companies which do not offer participation in profits, and very much lower than have before been offered in this colony. Participation, to the one thousand policy holders of the oldest dates for the time being, in profits, to the extent of one-half, including those of the annuity branch, which in England are very considerable.
