No Title [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 6 August 1842

(From our Second Edition of last week.) It is said, H. M. steamer Thunderbolt had sailed fobr V. D. Land. — The schooner Gem is a total wreck at New Zealand. — His Ex- cellency's stay among us (says the H.T. Ad- vertiser) is likely to be prolonged to a distant period. This statement is founded on a highly satisfactory letter received from an influential quarter. — The embarrassment of Mr. Macmichael's affairs excited general sympathy at Hobart Town. Fortunately for the Auction Company, though unfortu- nately for himself, this circumstance will induce perfect confidence in their manager, who will have no separate interest to attend to. He is said to have lost more than £8000 by a sheep farm, which a few years ago, was considered the sure foundation of a fortune — Murray's Review says, a new Governor of New South Wales was to em- bark early in May, in H. M. S. Fly, 18   guns, Capt. Blackwood. She is to be em- ployed in the survey of Torres' Straits. — The Gazette announce...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 6 August 1842

[ADVERTISEMENT.] Launceston, August 1, 1842. I HEREBY certify that the agreements made between Dr. Haygarth and Mr. Bates have been deposited in my possession since their execution, and that Dr. Hay- garth has no concern with Mr. Bates' busi- ness, except in purchasing from Mr. Bates the medicines necessary for his (Dr. Hay- garth's) practice. The above is certified at the request of the parties concerned. F. WALFORD. Horne & Walford's offices, Solicitors, St. John-street. The above has been rendered necessary in consequence of one amongst the many ignorant falsehoods in a scurrilous and anonymous letter sent to the editor of the Examiner, and published by advertisement in that paper on Saturday last.

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 6 August 1842

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. EMBARKATION OF TROOPS FOR AFF- GHANISTAN. — On Thursday morning, con- siderable interest prevailed in the vicinity of London-bridge, owing to the arrival and embarkation of troops for India. At eleven o'clock about 260 volunteers from the 10th, 12th, and 29th, embarked on board of the City of Canterbury steamer, for Herne Bay, to join the 45th regiment, now com- pleted at Canterbury, as well as the 78th Highlanders, who are expected to leave England in the latter part of the ensuing week. At twelve o'clock 270 men belong- ing to the 10th regiment, under the com- mand of Major Gordon, arrived at Vauxhall, by the Southampton railway, from Win- chester, and proceeded, with their band playing, to London-bridge Wharf, followed by an immense concourse of persons, where they embarked on board the Diamond Steam-boat Company's steamer the Topaz, for Tilbury Fort. Their departure for India will take place in the course of a few days. The last division of the 29th regiment, n...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 6 August 1842

PORT PHILLIP. THE Corsair brings Port Phillip papers to the 29th July. — The stores of Westley and Co. and the house of James Bennett had been broken into by thieves. COAL. — Samples of a very fine specimen of coal has recently been discovered near Geelong, on the property of Mr. Fisher, who resides at the Barrabool hills. A spe- cimen of the mineral was yesterday shown to us, and we safely say that we never saw a better in any part of England. We have not heard the extent of the vein ; it was discovered by some well-sinkers at a depth of fifty feet. We consider the dis- covery of so fine a specimen of coal to be of the utmost importance to the province ; for although the vein now opened is to be small or large, it shows that coal may be had for the seeking, and doubtless of suf- ficient abundance to facilitate materially steam navigation between this and other ports. We will allude more fully to this important discovery in a future number. A meeting of the directors will be held on...

NORFOLK ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 6 August 1842

NORFOLK ISLAND. The arrival of the Governor Phillip brings intelligence from Norfolk Island of a rupture among the convicts attended with serious results. On the 20th ult. an attempt was made by the prisoners assisting in loading the schooner Coquette to take the vessel, but they were prevented by the precautions taken. On the following morning on being called to work, two of the prisoners rushed on one of the sentries and disarmed him ; the other sentry presented his pistol, but it flashed in the pan, and after a short scuffle he was overpowered. The corporal and the remaining two of the watch were then thrown over-board. The alarm was given to Captain Boyle, who at the time was be- low. The sergeant of the guard managed to get on deck, and when there shot one of the conspirators named Kelly, but he was almost immediately knocked down with an iron belaying pin, and the ship's crew be- took themselves to the boats, leaving the deck in possession of the prisoners. Meanwhile Captain B...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 6 August 1842

NEW ZEALAND. The Auckland market, at this moment, is perfectly glutted in many descriptions of goods, such as hardware, in almost every article of that commodity ; spirits and wines, more especially the latter, such as they are ; some sorts of American or other furniture ; and many kinds of other coarse slops, exclusive of what has been sent down from Sydney ; some two or three late Eng- lish vessels have brought out large quanti- ties of merchandise, consisting in a great measure of the above mentioned goods. The only things, so far as I can understand, that would sell almost always, are very strong shoes, good large blankets, tea, sugar, and flour. Those are the articles that are and that must be in demand : however advan- tageous the importation of horses and cattle would ultimately be to this colony, such speculations, under present circumstances, would be a losing concern to shippers, as several parties of late have known to their loss ; for the charges of bonding are exces- si...

CAPTAIN ROSS' DISCOVERIES. (Parliamentary Paper.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 6 August 1842

CAPTAIN ROSS' DISCOVERIES. (Parliamentary Paper.) Extracts of a despatch from Capt. James C. Ross, of H. M. S. Erebus, dated Van Diemen's Land, April 7, 1841, and addressed to the Secretary of the Admiralty. I have the honour to acquaint you with the arrival of her Majesty's ship under my command, and the Terror under my orders, this afternoon at this port. I have further to report to you, for the information of my lords commissioners of the Admiralty, that, in accordance with the intentions expressed in my despatch to you, dated from Hobart Town, on the 11th of November last, I proceeded to Auckland Islands, and satis- factorily accomplished a complete series of magnetometric observations on the impor- tant term-day of November last. Under all the circumstances it appeared to me that it would conduce more to the advancement of that branch of science for which the expedition has been more ex- pressly sent forth, as well as for the exten- sion of our geographical knowledge of the ant...
