HINTS ON THE CULTIVATION OF THE POTATO. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 13 August 1842

HINTS ON THE CULTIVATION OF THE POTATO. The potato is hardly second to wheat in its im- portance to man ; there is so much bad manage- ment still witnessed, especially in rural districts, that we may be excused for devoting a small space to its consideration at this season, when the time for planting has arrived. Good sets with single   eyes, taken from partially ripe tubers, or small tubers undivided, furnish the best means of mul- tiplying the potato. It has been found, too, that if the tubers are over ripe, that is to say, have acquired all the mealiness and solidity possible, they are apt to produce the curl. It is, there- fore, the practice with some growers of potatoes to take up in the autumn what they want for seed before the general crop is ripe, or to select for sets the worst ripened potatoes they can pick out. The period of planting should be as soon after the 1st of March as circumstances will permit. " I have uniformly found." says Mr. Knight, " that to ob...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, August 13, 1842. CAUSES OF COLONIAL DEPRESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 13 August 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, August 18, 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 diminished : 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- mercial and agricultural supporters. Not- withstanding, when there is a ch...

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...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. ON DRILLING AND HAND-THRASHING MACHINE (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 shown the necessity of deposit- ing the corn evenly ; that the seed will be pro- tected from the birds, and the sanoke 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 from 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. 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, imprudent 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 inculcat...
