PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

PORT PHILLIP. A prospectus of a Company for salting beef, curing hides and horns, and grinding bone for agricultural purposes as manure,   has been published — proposed capital £5000 — in 1000 shares.

SKETCHES OF SUPERSTITION. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

SKETCHES OF SUPERSTITION. The merrow of the Irish is, as regards the mean- ing of the term, precisely the English mermaid, moru ich being a compound of muir the sea, and oigh a maid. Yet the merrows of Ireland approx- imate more to the ideas entertained by the Shet- landers regarding the seal, than to the common notions of mermaids, as half human, half piscine beings. The people of the far north imagine the seal to put off its skin every ninth night, and to appear then in a form completely human ; and they further say, that fishermen have sometimes caught females without the seal skin, and taken them home as housewifes. Some such notions have the Irish of the shape of the merrow, though it does not appear that they conceive it to be transformed but merely to be a being in a human shape, capa- ble of living in the deep ; only so, however, when in possession of a cohuleen driuth, or little enchan- ted diving cap. Mr. Croker gives an entertaining little legend, illustrative of this sub...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

SOUTH AUSTRALIA.   WE have papers to the 18th of February.   In the Governor's minute to the Council it appears that the receipts for 1841 amounted   to £92,854. 1s. 2d., and the expenditure to £92.207. 9s. 8d. In reference to the receipts, £36,813. 0s. 6d. only had been raised from the revenue, or the sale of land in the Co- lony. The balance was capital imported to defray various miscellaneous expenses. THE financial affairs of the Colony were in a deplorable condition, and a meeting   had been held to take the circumstances of   the colony into consideration. This assem- bly of the South Australians was charac- terized by noisy declamation and disgrace- ful personalities. Mr. Mann, styled the little " Joseph" of the province, suggested as a remedy that the Government should advance a sum of money, and thereby re- store confidence.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

MISCELLANEOUS. THE BITER BIT. — " The other evening," says a contemporary, " a well-known novel- ist, a man of great coolness and courage, was met by a stout fellow, who pulled out a poinard and demanded his purse. ' Capi- tal !' the other exclaimed, ' I was just about to make the same demand on you ; but come, as I find have fallen in with one of ourselves, I'll give you a share of a prime job I have in hand. Come along. ' De- ceived by this show of confindence, the real rogue joined the counterfeit, and they stole along together till they were met by a patrol, into whose hands the good-natured friend unkindly lodged his associate." Galignani's Messenger. TTT VERSUS XXX. — They have temper- ance waggons in the west of America, marked TTT, to denote that the owner is a teetotaller. TALLEYRAND A PLAGIARIST. — Talley- rand has the credit of being the first who defined speech as " a faculty given to man to conceal his thoughts ; " but this sly recre- ant only twisted into an apophthegm...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. MR. CORNEWALL LEWIS ON THE GOVERNMENT OF DEPENDENCIES. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. MR. CORNEWALL LEWIS ON TIlE GOVERN- MENT OF DEPENDENCIES. (From the Spectator.) There are two kinds of philosophers — first, those who examine life or nature, and deduce principles from things as they exist in entirely or in relation to other things ; second, those who look at matters abstractedly, rarely considering a whole subject as it is, but as it might be if it ex- isted alone or could subdue all other things to its own nature. The former, or practi- cal philosophy, is by far the most dillicult ; for it requires living observation, great sagacity to perceive the true elements of things, and much reflection to estimate ex- actly their respective influences. It is also the most useful, and the most enduring ; for though the mere form of things are very various, their real essentials are few in number, and a true deduction from a suf- ficiently extensive subject-matter will give a lasting general truth. But abstractions, not having been copied from life, never r...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

SYDNEY. DR. LANG. — The Dr. has resigned. The address delivered to his congregation, an- nouncing his intention, is too lengthy for our columns. The construction put upon his late transitory visit to this Colony and Port Phillip, and the alleged uncharitable feeling that prevails among the Presbyterians in New South Wales, are the causes of' his re- signation. The Dr. professes to be a volun- tary : but from the address we learn that his voluntaryism is founded on expediency. He has no objection to state support, provided it is only afforded to those who in his opinion " hold the truth." The following extract from the address may be considered to com- prehend his views on the subject. On the logic we express no opinion. — " In regard to the abstract question of a connexion be- tween Church and State, I have already subscribed our national standard, the West- minster confession of faith, and I am quite willing to do so again. I do not regard such a connexion as either sinful or unlaw...

PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. Under this head in future will be found a summary of all that occurs interesting to the Colonist. For the sake of connexion we now take a hasty review of the proceedings of Parliament since its opening. Amendments to the address were carried by large majorities in opposition to Minis- ters. In the debates considerable tact was displayed by the Conservative party, while great ability was evinced on the other side, in vindicating the liberal cause. As varied and numerous were the subjects touched upon by the speakers, as were the measures of the Melbourne Ministry. Mr. P. M. Stewart's playful allusion to the state of parties, and the uncertain majority Sir Robert Peel, as Prime Minister, could have, was introduced with considerable effect. It is worth quoting : — Mr. P. M. Stewart was unwilling to add to a one sided debate, but his interest in, and duty to his constituents compelled him to urge the consi- deration of their claims. What had they to ex- pect ...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. The Labour Question is agitated at the Cape ,at public meetings and in the news- papers. It appears the Governor, Sir George Napier, has given great offence to the colo- nists in a despatch to Lord John Russell on,   the subject. His Excellency's views and statements are said to be at variance equally with facts and his expressed opinion twelve- months before. The following is from the Graham's Town Journal:— WAGES OF LABORERS. It would be satisfactory to the people of this colony were they informed of the exact quarter fron whence His Excellency has derived that in- formation on the subject of labor, which could have warranted the statements made by him there- on to the colonial minister. The statements are the more remarkable as they are so directly at variance, ,not only with the opinions of men at all conversant with the subject, but with those of His Excellency himself as distinctly set forth by him a year ago. The following extract from His Ex- ...

LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

LAUNCESTON. WHEAT. — A slight advance in price has taken place, although the market is not brisk ; sales have been made at 7s. 6d. to 8s. a bushel during the week. Perhaps the tenders advertised by the government may have had an influence on the price. Growers ought to take advantage of a temporary rise to quit a portion at least of their crops. It will be for their immediate as well as future advantage to meet the demand, at a remu- nerating rate. The state of the Sydney market is encouraging, but too much reliance ought not to be placed on its permanence. It is difficult to come to a decision on the proba- ble price of wheat in the course of the season, but we submit the following as we believe to be correct data on which an opinion may be formed. The crops of wheat and maize in New South Wales have been deficient ; in the southern portion of the island the harvest has not yielded an average return ; little wheat may be expected from South America, and less flour from the United S...
