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 Hiighlanders, 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.

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 6 August 1842

SYDNEY. By the way of Port Phillip we have papers to 16th July. A mail, despatched from the London Post Office in 1840, with- out a direction, had reached Sydney after a two years' cruise in the Indian seas. — The Municipal Act is now virtually the law of the land. The Observer considers the mea- sure ill-timed ; providing as it does for direct taxation at a time when the distress of the colony needs no aggravttion. He says — " The bill is looked on at least by one section of the community with distrust, by another with aversion, and by another with indifference." — George William Evans was arraigned at the Supreme Court on a charge of forgery, in having altered the figures in a government contract for stationery : the jury, after being absent about an hour , re- turned a verdict of not guilty, and Mr. Evans was discharged. — On Thursday the first sale of land in the district of Moreton Bay took place at the Colonial Treasury : the allotments were put up at the minimum price of £100...

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 knowl...

ADVANTAGES OF THE INSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 10 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 finds 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. Thus the assurer may make ...
