HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 2 April 1842

HOBART TOWN. There appears to be a perfect stagnation in the wheat market. A contract for 20,000 bushels on the north side the island having been taken by Mr. C. Reid at a fraction less than 7s. has tended to check the advance. Van Diemen's Land wheat is much in demand at Sydney, where all that is sent readily produces 10s. at the least, but the want of money keeps purchasers here back ; and although large quantities could be sold on condi- tion of drawing on Sydney for the amount, the holders are unwilling to sell on those terms. If the existing drought continues much longer, agri- cultural operations will be so impeded as to injure the prospect of the crops next year. What with want of water and pasturage, both of which are generally dried up, much loss will be experienced in cattle stock, which, with the low price of the meat contract whereby great quantities of sheep and cattle will be consumed, keeping out importa- tion, the best hopes are entertained of an advance next year.

LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 2 April 1842

LAUNCESTON. The grain market remains in a state of inacti- vity ; large quantities of wheat continue daily to arrive in town, but the usual purchasers are shy in the absence of a foreign demand. The want of confidence no doubt acts unfavor- ably on the price. While there is reason to be- lieve that at the present time a market would be found for a considerable portion of our grain at Sydney and Port Phillip ; yet the wish to keep free from heavy engagements here, and the uncer- tainty of finding a substantial purchaser at a re- munerating rate at either of the above places, hinder the export of corn and tend to depress the price. WHEAT — 6s. to 6s, 6d. per bushel.   BARLEY — English, may be quoted at from 5s. 6d. per bushel ; Cape barley 4s. 6d. ditto. OATS — feed, 4s. per bushel ; for seed, 4s. 6d. ditto. 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 19th March 1842, inclusiv...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE "LAUNCESTON EXAMINER." [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 2 April 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE "LAUNCESTON EXAMINER." Sir. — It has been a matter of great surprise to me that in all discussions about the communications between Australia and England, so little has been said on the route by the Red Sea ; indeed, I do not know that it has been at all seriously discussed to the present time, excepting very partially in a pamphlet of Mr. Ross' ; and yet it recom- mends itself at the first glance by these three most essential points — First, it is the most direct line ; secondly, a great part of the line has been for years occupied by a monthly steam communication, and very shortly more than half the distance (more probably two- thirds) will be provided with powerful steamers ; thirdly, the intercourse between India and England by that line is of such a vast extent and importance, that the communica- tion must, in the probable course of events, be put in the most complete footing that money can effect. These points being obvious and undeniable, it seems most si...

SUPREME COURT, HOBART TOWN. Tuesday, March 22. Before His Honor the Chief Justice. TETLEY v, SHERWIN. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 2 April 1842

SUPREME COURT, HOBART TOWN. Tuesday, March 22. Before His Honor the Chief Justice. TETLEY v, SHERWIN. This case, our readers will recollect, was tried at a former sittings, and a verdict of 980l. given for the plaintiff, there being, however, two dis- sentient voices against it. In the last term a new trial was moved for and obtained, on the ground that the verdict was contrary to the direc- tion of the learned judge (Montagu), who tried the case, as no private agency between the plain- tiff and defendant had been proved. On the pre- sent occasion, the same evidence was adduced, and His Honor the Chief Justice summed up with his usual minuteness and care, but appeared to think that the verdict ought to be for the defend- ant, in consequence of the delay in paying the premium. The jury, however, found for the plaintiff, damages 980l. For the plaintiff, the Solicitor-General with Messrs. Allport and Roberts ; for the defendant, the Attorney-General and Messrs Macdowell and Stephen, wi...

THE MISSES WADDELL understand-   ing it is generally reported that they   contemplate relinquishing their establish- ment, beg to state that such a report is erro- neous, and take this opportunity of inform- ing their friends and the public that in order to meet the depression of the times, they intend at the ensuing quarter to reduce their terms to 50 guineas per annum ; washing the only extra. The Misses W. presume that the report has arisen firom the severe indisposition of one of the ladies, having rendered her in- capable of taking an active part in the busi- ness of their establishment ; but as Miss W.'s health is now re-established, she will be happy to devote herself with her former assiduity to the instruction of her pupils. Those parents who value the privileges of a a religious education, combined with in- struction in useful knowledge and the usual accomplishments, will find every requisite for the promotion of happiness and improve- ment.

TO "A LOVER OF GOOD STUFF." [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 2 April 1842

TO "A LOVER OF GOOD STUFF." SIR, — Observing a letter from you in the Corn- wall Chronicle of last week, we wish to take some notice of it. Your assertions with regard to the general characters of those who belong to the "Total Abstinence Society" are partly true and partly false. It is not true, sir, that the members of this society are generally persons of the lowest and most illiterate class, for we rank among our numbers a majority of the greatest and best of men living ; and we judge, from the almust unpre- cedented success which has already attended the friends of temperance, that the time is not far distant when all great and good men will be con- strained to identify themselves with a cause which is so glorious, both in its effects and its achieve- ments, The achievments of our society you your- self, sir, acknowledge ; and we agree with you that some of our members have been raised firom a worse than beastly state of degradation — only there is this difference between you a...

A VERDICT.--In every instance where clemency can, consistently with justice, be administered, the jury are bound to award it ; but in the following example we cannot but think that their caution to avoid rigour unintentionally threw them into an opposite extreme ; the extremes of lenity or severity are equally pernicious in their   effects. In the case of John Sharpe, in- dicted at the last criminal sessions for stab- bing Mr. C. S. Wentworth, the evidence of three respectable parties and that of the constable substantiated the charge, (which indeed the man himself admitted), on the evidence of Dr. O.
