CHINA. IMPORTANT INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 6 March 1843
CHINA. IMPORTANT INTELLIGENCE, From the Hubirt Town Courier. The arrival of the Lord Eldon from Canton, the 24th December, with a cargo of tea, con signed to the mercantile firms of Burns and White, and Kennards, C hapnian and Co., has put us in possession of Canton papers to the 20l.li December. These papers bring us the intelligence of a serious riot at Canton, originating in a quarrel between some Lascars and a Chinese mob, concerning the shipping of some provisions for the ship Fort William ; the result of which was -he destruction by fire of several stores in the English, Dutch, and Creek hongs, with a very larce quantity of valuable mer chandize and a large quantity of specie. A still more painful and grave charge against the Chinese, is the cold-blooded mur der of the ship-wrecked crew of the ships Kcrhudd i and Ann, on the island of Formosa. by the Chinese authorities, it appears by ihe Proclamation of Sir Henry Pottinger to the Chinese, that not less than two hundred and ei...

THE BUSHRANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 6 March 1843
THE BUSHRANGERS. -» Various reports of the attack of the bushrangers on Mr Shone's premises having been circulated, we give the following which is substantially the same as those already given by our contemporaries, but varying in some points, which may prove useful in furtherance of the apprehension of the runaways than appears probable at first sight. A little after dusk on Wednesday evening last, Mr. and Mrs. Shone, with a person named Jackson, a stonemason, were at tea; when nearly finished a rap was heard at the front door, Mrs. Shone being seated nearest to the front door, got up and asked who was there, that entrance being locked. The inquiry was answered by a neigh- bour, Mr. James Bradshaw, and Mrs. Shone knowing his voice, immediately opened the door. The door opens into a lobby. Mr. Shone heard several persons coming in, but thought they were part of his family, and others he expected by the New Norfolk steamer. Some person said to Mr. Shone, what are you doing, he replie...

TASMANIAN TEETOTAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 13 March 1843
TASMANIAN TEETOTAL SOCIETY. The meeting of this society on Tuesday last, was, as usual, numerously attended,-and -orderly conducted. The opponents, who were in the liabit of creating disturbance, either absent themselves or remain quiet, and consequently the audience are neither ' amused' by folly nor ' disgusted' by uproar. The Chairman, Isaac Sherwin, Esq., alluded to the reception which the deputation met with from Sir John Franklin, and congratulated the society on the prospect of obtaining a piece of ground oil which to erect a Temperance Hall. But from a remark which fell from His Excellency, he (the Chairmau) felt the necessity of making their prin ciples as extensively known as possible. Sir John remarked that the society was a very good one for druukards, and people who could not resist temptation, but if they were to limit its advantages to these considerations, it is evident they would be entirely abandoning their principles. They maintained that total abstinence was good...
