LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, August 13, 1842. CAUSES OF COLONIAL DEPRESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 13 August 1842
LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, August 13, 1842. CAUSES OF COLONIAL DEPRESSION. So many have undertaken to ascertain and lay open the causes of distress, that if in- genuity and application could fully develop them, the public would have acquired a full knowledge of our monetary disease ; which the proverb tells us, is, in ordinary maladies, " half the cure." Our difficul- ties are not dininished : distrust and un- certainty are scarcely less apparent, than at the period, when our perplexities seemed to have reached their height. We have, however, a consolation, that there is nothing solitary in our pecuniary woes. The breadth of their foundations will, no doubt, enable many establishments to survive the trial ; but before it is past, if we may interpret the common fears, many will fall into ruin. It is difficult to suggest more than the general principles of humanity and prudence, for the guidance of our com- &nbsp; mercial and agricultural supporters. Not- withstanding, whe...

PROFESSIONAL. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 13 August 1842
PROFESSIONAL. We were anxious to have got rid of the medical dispute — to have cleared the list of all unimportant questions — that nothing might direct the public from those impor- tant causes soon to be determined. There are differences in which a general interest can be excited only by some peculiar bear- ings, not perhaps expressly avowed. A writer in the Chronicle, whose tenderness to Mr. Pugh is almost too much for his justice, after stating the truism, that either Dr. Pugh is justified, or he is not, has presumed to decide what we had left to the unbiassed judgment of our readers. Our object is not to show where the blame ought to fall. The community at large have received no evidence, and are ac- quainted with no facts to warrant a peremp- tory conclusion. They will see the patron of the Chronicle, with a strong body of medical gentlemen, who have risen up as if by enchantment, armed, not only with the lancet, but the lance ! But the mis- fortune is, there are no patients to...

NORFOLK PLAINS PLOUGHING ASSOCIATION. — The MATCH for 1842 will come off as advertised, on Thursday, the 11th of August.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. ON DRILLING AND HAND-THRASHING MACHINES (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 13 August 1842
TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. ON DRILLING AND HAND-THRASHING MACHINES (Continued) I think I have sown the necessity of deposit- ing the corn evenly ; that the seed will be pro- tected from the birds, and the sample and quan- tity improved and increased. These can easily be proved by drawing a few drills with a pick, or instrument temporarily made like a drill coulter, on a well pulverised piece of land. The quantity of seed wheat I would recom- mend is, for fine strong land, well tilled, and not worn out with repeated cropping, two bushels measure, (weight is not the regulation for seed), and the rows ten inches between each drill ; for second quality land, two bushels and a half, and nine inches front row to row — if poor thin land, three bushels of seed, and seven inches from row to row. (Let it be understood, the quantity of seed and width of drills should be regulated according to the number of crops of the same grain taken in succession, and times the land has been ...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. August 2, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 13 August 1842
TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. August 2, 1842. SIR. — We beg leave through the medium of your excellent paper to reply to the following question, proposed to us a few days ago by a zealous and, in our estimation, impudent advocate of totalism : the question is — are you in the habit of attending the meetings of the totallers. We answer, no : because we conceive that the scenes exhibited at the theatre of MODERATION-RUN- WILD, or totalism, are such as cannot even be occasionally — much less habitually — indulged in without falling under the just and severe censure of the word of God. Any individual, possessing a spark of true religion, attending a meeting of the same character and tone of feeling as that of the last meeting of the totallers, could not fail to be convinced that the foolish levity to which the meeting, nearly the whole time of its continuance, abandoned itself, is directly opposed to, and de- structive of, the sobriety and seriousness incuicated by the word ...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 13 August 1842
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We have received Adelaide papers to the 23rd July. PROVIDENTIAL ESCAPE. — On Saturday, July 9, the whalers at the Hog Bay station Kangaroo Island, in the employ of Mr. Haynes, of Port Adelaide, discovered a whale spouting in the bay, and two boats shortly set off in pursuit. After a long pull one of the boats succeeded in gaining a position near which it was supposed the fish would make its appearence, the other boat being about three miles astern. In a few minutes the whale rose, and to the dis- may of the crew made towards the boat, which it instantly upset. The crew were now nine miles from land ; and it appears, after swimming for a considerable time, had given over all hopes of ever reaching the shore, or receiving any assistance, as the night was coming on. The second boat had, some time before, ceased pursuing, and was returning to the station, when a whale rose and spouted at a short distance, and, most providentially made off in the direction of the first b...
