TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 20 August 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR. — As you ask for facts on the subject of totalism, otherwise total abstinence, pray insert the few following ; and contradict them if you can. Fact 1. Both in Australia, and Van Diemen's Land not only occasional tipplers, but many of the most confirmed drunkards have of late been made perfectly and habitually sober ; not by you or your principles, but by total abstinence. Fact 2. There are yet in these colonies great numbers of drunkards, male and female, rich and poor, and for whom you can do nothing ; for your moderation nostrum has proved a failure all the world over. Fact 3. " The common people" hear us gladly ; while, as it was once of old, from certain of you learned scribes, we hear plenty of murmuring and cries of nay, but they deceive the people. Fact 4. All — aye, even the greatest drunkards living, or rather dying — started witlh your modera- tion for a guide ; many of whom were for a long time very moderate, but who are now ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 20 August 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR, — From my observation of the working of the Insolvent Act, I am induced to offer a few suggestions for improvement, to be introduced if considered worthy into the Act now in contem- plation. The first, of importance to the creditor as well as to the assignee, relating to the mode of dis- posing of the estate and effects, is, that he should be fully empowered to dispose of such   in the manner most likely to realise the largest sum. As the Act now stands, the assignee is bound to sell by public auction, except where an individual makes an offer for the whole of the estate and effects, then the votes of the ma- jority of the creditors at a special meeting, duly called by advertisement, gives the assignee power to accept such offer ; but from what I have wit- nessed, a great loss — thirty-five per cent — has taken place by the removal of property to Laun- ceston, for sale by public auction, from a place where probably such mod...

PROCEEDINGS OF THE ASSOCIATION OF BRITISH ILLUMINATI AT THEIR ANNUAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 20 August 1842

PROCEEDINGS OF THE ASSOIATION OF BRITISH ILLUMINATI AT THEIR ANNUAL MEETING. Dr. Hoaxum read an interesting paper on the conversion of moonbeams into sub- stance, and rendering shadows permanent, both of which he had recently exemplified in the establishment of some public com- panies, whose prospectuses he laid upon the table. Mr. Babble produced his calculating ma- chine, and its wonderful powers were tested in many ways by the audience. It supplied to Captain Sir John North an accurate com- putation of the distance between a quarto volume and a cheesemonger's shop ; and solved a curious question as to the decimal proportions of cunning and credulity, which worked by the rule of alligation, would yield a product of £10,000. Professor Von Hammer described his newly-discovered process for breaking stones by an algebraic fraction. Mr. Crowsfoot read a paper on the natural history of the Rook. He defended their cawes with great effect, and proved that there is not a grain of truth in ...

THOUGHTS ON CURRENCY, BANKING, AND THE FUNDS, HOME AND FOREIGN. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 20 August 1842

THOUGHTS ON CURRENCY, BANKING, AND THE FUNDS, HOME AND FOREIGN. Another edition is here presented to the host of brochures, called forth by the cur- rency question. Mr. Brierly lays claim to a practical acquaintance with his subject, and his pamphlet affords proof of a power to apply knowledge in a systematic form, and is therefore worthy of perusal by all those who desire to acquire information and new ideas on so important a topic. Mr. Brierly proposes to place the entire currency, whether notes or specie, under the control of the Lords of the Treasury, to be by them issued to bankers at a charge of one per cent. per annum. He estimates the required amount to be about £70,000,000 of notes, independent of silver and copper coin. The issue to each bank to be only to the extent of the paid up capital of such bank, or such proportion thereof as may be deemed necessary. Other details are given to complete the system. Colonel Torrens some time since put forth a plan, similar, so far as ...

PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 20 August 1842

PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION. The repeated exposures of bad manage- ment in the Consular department, which have recently been made, encourage a hope that some general interest may be awakened to the question how the evil is to be pre- vented in future. Among other suggestions, it has been thrown out that the most effective pre- caution would be to appoint no one to the Consular office who has not been bred to the business, and given proofs of ability to discharge its duties Professional education consists of two parts — the general or preparatory, and the special or practical. The former consists in the general instruction received by young men in those branches of knowledge which render them conversant with the extent and nature of their future duties, and exercise those mental faculties most in request in their profession. This part em- braces the languages, in all liberal pro- fessions ; history and moral and intellectual science, with the lawyer and divine ; che- mistry and mathematic...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, August 20, 1842. MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 20 August 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, 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 public. It dep...
