Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 3 August 1842

[ADVERTISEMENT] To the Editor of the Launceston Examiner. SIR. — A letter, signed by " Dr. Burton Geo. Haygarth," appears in the columns of the Corn- wall Chronicle of the 23rd inst. The object of the writer is so apparant, that to attempt an explana- tion must he deemed superfluous : had he been content with assailing the individuals to whom his letter particularly refers, he might have been per- mitted to assume the laurels to which he aspires ; he has, however, unfortunately, not confined his attacks to individuals, but, in his desire to detract, has levelled his shaft at one of the most respect- able of our British medical institutions. It is known to every person, in the least ac- quainted with the medical school of Edinburgh, that two medical degrees only are granted — the one, of Doctor of Medicine, by the College of Physicians ; the other, of Surgeon and Apothe-   cary. These institutions, like all civic bodies have certain local rights and privileges, attainabl...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, August 6, 1842. THE CAPITALISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 6 August 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, August 6 1842. THE CAPITALISTS. ALTHOUGH disposed to allow the new ver- sion of the Hobart Town Advertiser to pass, we cannot consent that we improperly interpreted his language. He did not re- commend the wholesale robbery of the fundholder, but he spoke of it with com- placency, alleged the ground on which it is usually proposed, and closed his remark- able description of capitalists with the fol- lowing passage — The hatred and suspicion with which they are regarded at home, would seem the precursor of   better state of things, and if' the destruction of this interest is necessary to the safety and pros- perity of manufacturers, the landowner, the crown, the constitution, and the people, their good deeds have not been so many as to cause much sympathy for their fate, or much sorrow that their safety rendered necessary the destruction of an interest to the formation of which every crime conduced that can embrute or debase the mind of man...

SAVINGS BANKS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 6 August 1842

SAVINGS BANKS. To advance arguments in favour of savings banks would be superfluous. It is ad- mitted that they are powerful incentives to social advancement — that they promote industry, sobriety, and economy among the labouring class — that they accumulate capital, available for the extension of trade and commerce — and are therefore, in a public point of view, of the utmost im- portance. The working man appreciates the security offered, and the interest paid for his small contributions. His overplus earnings are received with readiness, how- ever minute the instalments he can spare, and his fund in the bank is a valuable re- source in the event of sickness, or in the absence of employment. Nor has the le- gislature disdained to provide for the re- gulation of the " poor man's bank." In Britain and her colonies, where such insti- tutions are formed, the government has, in almost every instance, stepped in to protect the interests of depositors, and demanded proper controul, ample ...

HAPPY THE MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 6 August 1842

HAPPY THE MAN. -------- who knows the cause of things, Traces each motion to its hidden springs. ANON. WE congratulate the public on the pros- pect of discovering the secret causes of social dislocation ; the derangement, not of intellect, but of men. By some un- happy jumble, the members of society are disarranged and displaced. The sagacious mind, of a writer in the Chronicle, is now employed to delineate a plan, on which all discrepancies will be removed, and each man find himself, where each man ought to be. We have long suspected a some- thing had gone wrong. There has been an uneasiness, expressed in disdain, scorn, indignation, and declamation — in retire- ment, silence, caution, plotting, and pro- mising. We have seen old enemies shake hands, and pour out their souls in serious deliberation, as though some terrible cala- mity had united them. There has not been a delivery of manuscripts, perhaps, but there has been an exchange of pledges and vows ; and we have no doubt, that...

AGRICULTURAL REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 6 August 1842

AGRICULTURAL REPORT. AGRICULTURAL REPORT FOR JULY. — Our agricultural report for July, cannot vary much from that of the preceding month, in reference to the state and prospect of the season, and the en- suing crop. We receive favourable accounts from those farmers who were able to sow before the wet ; their young crops are looking well and get- ting strong. Farming work is generally very slack during the month of July, it has been par- ticularly so this season ; the great quantity of rain that fell, almost entirely suspended the farmers' operations, and much land in consequence remains unploughed, and in the backward districts, es- pecially to the westward, it continues very wet. We believe the lambing season has been pro- ductive, notwithstanding the heavy rains ; some focks, however, have lost from ten to fifteen per cent. of lambs in consequence of the wet. Cattle have kept their condition this winter better than usual, and are looking very fresh and promising. Our farmers shoul...
