ADVANTAGES OF THE INSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 20 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 fiom the profits of the company, as is the case of the English so cleties, 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 funds will be from tino 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 befbre boon offered in this colony. Participation, to the one thousand policy holders of the oldest dates for the time being, iu profits, to the extent of one-half, including. those of the annuity branch, which in England airo very considerable. Thus the assurer may make a ...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, August 20, 1842. MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 20 August 1842
LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, &nbsp; Saturday, August 20, 1842. MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. THE lecture of Mr. Harvey was, upon the whole, highly creditable to him ; and had it been chargeable with much greater faults than we could perceive, we should pass them by. When gentlemen appear in public, at the solicitation of the institute, their efforts are entitled, not only to a candid, but a generous representation ; and it must be on other than public grounds that they are misrepresented and exposed to ridicule. We have heard every lecture but one delivered, and we feel no hesitation in declaring our belief, that no town of the same date could furnish a more useful and intelligent list of lecturers, than have appeared on our own. Mr. Harvey's closing remarks were cer- tainly just ; but we venture our opinion, that the importance given to newspaper detraction, by a notice, is impolitic and unwise. The opinion expressed, to which reference was made, is the opinion of an individual, not of the...
ADMINISTRATION PAST AND PRESENT [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 20 August 1842
ADMINISTRATION PAST AND PRESENT THE Review and Hobart Town Adver- tiser are engaged in canvassing the re- spective merits of the late Governor and and Sir John Franklin, We cannot admit the colour and uncandid representation of Colonel Arthur's character ; although he was not entitled to unqualified praise, he certainly deserves, and possesses, the mea- sured esteem of a large and independent portion of our community. Col. Arthur was a gentleman of large capacity, and possessed firmness bordering on obstinacy. That he was corrupt, has been asserted by his enemies ; but those instances adduced, are such as arise in any protracted admi- nistration. That he was attentive to his own interests may be admitted ; it has not, however, been shown that they were op- posed to the general interests of the country. Many of the acts of Colonel Arthur's government were liable to excep- tion ; but so were the acts of the colo- nists, by which they were provoked. Col. Arthur despised the press ; but...
PROFESSIONAL AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 20 August 1842
PROFESSIONAL AGAIN. THE medical gentlemen, who have sig- nalised their valour in attempting to de- grade a successful practitioner, appear to perform duty in rotation, but as their sepa- rate arms do not seem to take effect, we should recommend them to form a medical society, and then fire in platoons. Dr. Hutchison, who has no local habitation, and who is about to pass into the cold atmosphere of the Horn, has exhibited amazing ardour in a quarrel with which he has no visible concern. It would have been much more satisfactory to the inha- bitants of Launceston, had some gentle- man better known, and more likely to weigh his sentences with caution, furnished a statement, (if we are to rely upon indivi- dual testimony ;) and it would have been far more satisfactory than even this, had Dr. Hutchison transcribed some of those printed documents which we are required, unwilling as we are, to accept on his authority. Not that we charge him with lying, for although in his short residence...
MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 20 August 1842
MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. Last Tuesday evening Mr. S. E. Harvey de- livered a lecture on " the effects of heat : their influence in the various parts of mechanics and general practical application ;" illustrated by ex- periments. The Rev. Mr. Garrett was called to preside. Mr. Harvey stated that the present lecture would only embrace a part of the subject announced, which must be considered as merely introductory to a course of lectures on chemistry, to be given at a future period. He confined his attention to one property of heat ; viz.— expan- sion : and, without pretending to follow the lec- turer exactly, we will endeavour to present to our readers a correct outline of the subject so far as it was entered upon. The term heat commonly signifies not only the sensation excited in us by the approximation of a warm body, but also the cause of that sensation ; and, to obviate ambiguity, the cultivators of phy- sical science have employed the word caloric to designate the cause of heat. It...
