LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, August 6, 1842. THE CAPITALISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 6 August 1842
LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, August 6, 1842. THE CAPITALISTS. &nbsp; 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 a 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 m...
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 suc...
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 reccive 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 flocks, 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 shou...

[ADVERTISEMENT.] &nbsp; Launceston, August 1, 1842. I HEREBY certify that the agreements made between Dr. Haygarth and Mr. &nbsp; 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.

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 6 August 1842
PORT PHILLIP. THE Corsair brings Port Phillip papers to ths 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 themselvcs to the boats, leaving the deck in possession of the prisoners. Meanwhile Captain B...
