Mulgrave, Esq., coroner, on view of the   body of Margaret Peebles, who died suddenly about eight o'clock the same morning. Catherine Wickenden — I have known the de- ceased about six years, a great part of which time she was in the habit of drinking to excess. She left my house a fortnight ago, after living with me three months ; I Iast saw her alive on the 10th instant ; she was than laboring under an attack of the bowel complaint, and had been so for some time ; she also complained of pains in her legs and feet ; while she lived with me she never drank less than three or four glasses of spirits a day, and sometimes more when she could get it, and ate scarcely anything. Mary Gregory — The deceased came to reside at my house last Tuesday week ; she complained of pains in her legs and feet, to which she a...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR. — If you think the general truth embodied in the following extract from the works of a cele- brated American divine, have any particular ap- pilcation at the present time, you will perhaps give it a place in your journal. The exhibition of the character in its own native deformity, if it produces no beneficial effect upon the practised and hardened slanderer, may be the means of de- terring others from entering upon a course in which they cannot fail to reap lasting disgrace. "A slanderer is a common enemy. All consi- derate persons know and feel this truth, and guard themselves with watchful care against his attacks. So far as their circumstances will permit they shun, and warn their children and friends to shun his company. Not mere suspicion, but a well- founded and deeply felt conviction of his hostility to the common interests of men, meets him where-   ever he goes : his presence creates only pain : his tongue is a bl...

MAURITIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842

MAURITIUS.   We have been favored with the Cerneen Extraordinary of the 4th January, from which the following is taken : Monday evening, Jan. 3, 1842. DEATH OF HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR. We regret to have to announce the death of His Excellency Lieutenant-General Sir Lionel Smith, Baronet, Knight Grand Cross of the Military Order of the Bath, Grand Cross of the Royal Hanoverian or Guelphic Order, Colonel of the 40th Regiment Foot, and Governor and Commander-in-Chief of this island. His Excellency, who was at his country house at Reduit, was taken ill on Friday evening ; but nothing occurred to excite the apprehensions of his family until early yesterday morning, when such alarming symptoms appeared, that his private phy- sician considered it necessary to call in to his aid the Chief Medical Officer and other experienced surgeons of the garrison, who succeeded in momentarily allaying his suf- ferings. But this respite was of short dura- tion, and His Excellency, after ...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842

SYDNEY. DR. LANG has not left for New Zealand, nor is it probable he will do so. A large portion of his congregation applied to him for farther information respecting his in- tentions, and he addressed a letter to the senior trustee of the Scots' church on the 11th February, from which we make the following extracts. " The reasons, therefore, that induced me to come to the resolution I announced on sabbath last were-1st, a feeling of absolute hopelessness as to extensive good being done through the Synod of Australia as at present constituted, either for the extension or for the edification of the Presbyterian Church in this territory ; 2nd, a conviction that all the calamities with which that church has hitherto been afflicted in this colony have arisen, either directly or indi- rectly, from its connection with the state ; and 3rd, a strong impression that it was my bounden duty, as a minister of the Gospel in this colony, to renounce all connection with the state forthwith and for...

Agriculture is a science, and a noble one, but unless the great ones of the land, the powerful and influential societies-we would prefer to say -the government itself, take up the cause, and institute agricultural colleges in many parts of the United Kingdom, wherein land in the large way, its geological and chemical characters, shall be tested by accurate experiments, and its powers of rotation practically ascertained, ambiguity and doubt will continue to embarrass every operation of the farm, and render every attempt at descrip- tion nugatory and illusive.

HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 26 March 1842

HOBART TOWN. The various reports of the state of the Sydney market caused much uncertainty as to the prices here. We know of sales effected varying from 9s. to 7s. 3d. It is now ascertained that the maxi- mum price for Derwent wheat at Sydney is 1os., while the best Australian will fetch only 7s., and foreign wheat scarcely half that price. Thus the superiority of our produce is practically established beyond question. The price this morning may be taken at an average of about 7s. 9d., perhaps 8s., and it is not a falling but a firm demand ; we trust the agriculturists will allow no inducement to tempt them to an advance beyond 10s. The following is the market report :— Wheat 7s. 6d. to 8s. per bushel ; fine flour 20s. per cwt. ; seconds, 18s. per ditto ; oats 5s. 6d. to 5s. 9d. per bushel ; barley, English, 6s. to 6s. 6d. per ditto ; maize 5s. per ditto ; hay 4s. 6d. to 5s. per cwt. ; potatoes, 6s. to 8s. per ditto ; fowls, 4s. to 5s. per couple ; eggs, 1. 9d. to 2s. per dozen ; fr...

LAUNCESTON. The wheat market is dull ; it is difficult to effect sales at 6s. 6d. per bushel for a good sample : how- ever it is not likely that the price will long remain at this very low rate, but exorbitant prices ought not to be anticipated. BARLEY — English, may be quoted at from 5s. 6d. to 6s. per bushel ; Cape barley 4s. 6d. per bushel. OATS — feed, 4s. ; for seed, 4s. 6d. to 5s. per   bushel. FLOUR — first quality, £18 ; second, £16 ; third, £14 per 2000lbs. Return of grain and flour exported from the port of Launceston, during the week ending 12th March 1842, inclusive — Oats, 1055 bushels ; wheat 1500 ditto ; barley, 92 ditto ; flour, 33 tons 2½ cwt. Return of grain and flour imported at the port of Launceston, during the week ending 12th March 1842, inclusive — Nil. The general market remains without alteration.
