EARLY DISCOVERY OF THE POWERS OF STEAM. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842

EARLY DISCOVERY OF THE POWERS OF STEAM. Miss Costello, in a late work, transcribes the following interesting letter, written by Marion de Lorme from Paris, February, 1641 :— " I, according to your express de- sire, am doing the honours of Paris to your English lord, the Marquis of Worcester, and I carry him about, or rather he carries me, from curiosity to curiosity, choosing always the most grave and serious, speaking very little, listening with extreme attention, and fixing on those whom he interrogates two large blue eyes, which seem to pierce to the very centre of their thoughts. He is remarkable for never being satisfied with any explanations which are given him, and he never sees things in the light in which they are shown him. You may judge of this by a visit we made together to Bicetre, where he imagined he had discovered a genius in a madman. If this madman had not been actually raving, I verily believe your marquis would have entreated his liberty, and have carried him off...

MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842

MISCELLANY. BLASTING BY GALVANISM. — The new plan proposed by Mr. Martin Roberts, of blast- ing rocks and mines by galvanism to ex- plode the gunpowder, is detailed by him in a letter just published, addressed to the Agricultural Society of Scotland. This pro- cess of exploding gunpowder by galvanism has been in some degree familiarised by the practice of it by Col. Paisley, in his operations to blow up the wreck of the Royal George. This mode of operating, however, Mr. Roberts also claims as his own. By applying it to blasting it offers many and peculiar advantages. In the first place, it prevents all danger from the fuse   firing the gunpowder before the man who lights it has time to escape. It enables all the men to remove to a place of safety be- fore the explosion, and it determines to a moment the time at which the explosion takes place. The plan adopted by Mr. Roberts, of charging the hole with gun- powder and closing it with loose sand, is extremely curious, and...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. IN Whitecross-street prison there are 335 persons, 20 of whom are imprisoned by vir- tue of process out of the Court of Requests. In Newgate there are, in consequence of the recent gaol delivery, only 130 prisoners. NEW HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT. — In re- ference to the extraordinary demand for £80,000 or 90,000 for extra air flues, &c., to warm and ventilate the New Houses of Parliament, a writer in the Times says : — "While the honor and prudence of the country is advanced, we view with satisfac- tion the progress of national buildings ; but a spirit of rigid inquiry is raised at the sight of these extra £80,000 jobs, by which ori- ginal estimates are swelled to double, and thereby a confiding people are deceived and impoverished. The amount of money is, however, it the minds of many, a secondary consideration compared to the bungling con- trivances that would be the irremediable cost, if these aerial flue schemes were car- ried out." A GREAT robbery has latel...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842

PORT PHILLIP.   The late proceedings against Mr. Arden have given rise to a petition for the removal of Judge Willis. Although the petition had been handed about for some time   but few signatures were attached. A counter petition is published in the Pa- triot; and that paper and the Gazette are at war on the subject. We furnish the following extracts from the papers received : — EXTENSION OF CRIME. — We regret to find, from communications which we have received from the country, that depreda- tions are much upon the increase. Not satisfied, it appears, with the harvest al- ready reaped in Melbourne and its suburbs, we learn that numerous lawless villains are now paying their predatory visits to our country friends. It may be recollected that at the last criminal sessions, a man in the employ of Mr. Rider, a settler on the River Plenty, was found guilty of robbing his master of a variety of valuable articles, and sentenced to undergo three years in- carcera...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842

SYDNEY. DR. LANG has not left for New Zealand, nor is it probable he will do so. A large portion of his congregation applied to him for farther information respecting his in- tentions, and he addressed a letter to the senior trustee of the Scots' church on the 11th February, from which we make the following extracts. " The reasons, therefore, that induced me to come to the resolution I announced on sabbath last were — 1st, a feeling of absolute hopelessness as to extensive good being done through the Synod of Australia as at present constituted, either for the extension or for the edification of the Presbyterian Church in this territory ; 2nd, a conviction that all the calamities with which that church has hitherto been afflicted in this colony have arisen, either directly or indi- rectly, from its connection with the state ; and 3rd, a strong impression that it was my bounden duty, as a minister of the Gospel in this colony, to renounce all connection with the state forthwith and f...

MAURITIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842

MAURITIUS. We have been favored with the Cerneen Extraordinary of the 4th January, from which the following is taken: — Monday evening, Jan. 3, 1842. DEATH OF HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR. We regret to have to announce the death of His Excellency Lieutenant-General Sir Lionel Smith, Baronet, Knight Grand Cross of the Military Order of the Bath, Grand Cross of the Royal Hanoverian or Guelphic Order, Colonel of the 40th Regiment Foot, and Governor and Commander-in-Chief of this island. His Excellency, who was at his country house at Reduit, was taken ill on Friday evening ; but nothing occurred to excite the apprehensions of his family until early yesterday morning, when such alarming symptoms appeared, that his private phy- sician considered it necessary to call in to his aid the Chief Medical Officer and other experienced surgeons of the garrison, who succeeded in momentarily allaying his suf- ferings. But this respite was of short dura- tion, and his Excellency, after having only a ...

POETRY. WHEN LOVE, WHO RULED. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842

POETRY. WHEN LOVE, WHO RULED. When Love, who ruled as Admiral o'er His rosy mother's isles of light,, Was cruising off the Paphian shore, A sail at sunset hove in sight. " A chase, a chase ! my Cupids all," Said Love, the little Admiral. Aloft the winged sailors sprung, And swarming up the mast like bees, The snow-white sails expanding flung, Like broad mangolias to the breeze. " Yo ho, yo ho, my Cupids all !" Said Love, the little Admiral. The chase was o'er — the bark was caught, The winged crew her freight explored ; And found 'twas just as Love had thought, For a I was contraband aboard. "A prize, a prize, my Cupids all !" Said Love, the little Admiral. Safe stow'd in many a package there, And labell'd slyly o'er as " Glass," Were lots of all th' illegal ware, Love's Custom-House forbids to pass. " O'erhaul, o'erhaul, my Cupids all," Said Love, the little Admiral. False curls they found, of every hue, With rosy blushes ready made ; And teeth of ivory, good as new, For veteran's ...

SECOND EDITION. LATEST INTELLIGENCE. Including the News by this day's Post. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842

SECOND EDITION. LATEST INTELLIGENCE. Including the News by this day's Post. WE regret to learn that a considerable quantity of wheat and barley in stack was destroyed by fire on Thursday evening, between seven and eight o'clock, on the farm occupied by Mr. Jor- dan (formerly belonging to Timothy Quin) be- tween the properties of Messrs. Manley and Hard- wick. Strong suspicion is entertained that the grain was wilfully fired. Settlers cannot be too frequently urged to avail themlselves of the advan- tages offered by the fire insurance offices in this town. A calamity that would ruin an individual would only be lightly felt by companies, to which all contributed by the payment of premiums. The amount demanded for insurance from fire is too trifling to deter any one consulting his own interest from securing himself from loss, to which especially farm property is liable. SWAN RIVER.-Papers have been received to 26th February; a vein of coal is said to have been discovered in the nelghbo...
