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.

SUPREME COURT, HOBART TOWN. Tuesday, March 22. Before His Honor the Chief Justice. TETLEYv, SHERWIN.     This case, our readers will recollect, was tried at a former sittings, anda 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. AlIport and Roberts ; For the defenda...

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

AGRICULTURE. From a Lecture by Mr. John Wells. In attempting to read a paper to you and the respectable company I now see before me, I feel my inability to do justice to the subject I have the honour of laying before you. I have no pre- tensions to superior learning or eloquence that can tend to catch your fancy, or win your ad- miration — but I stand before you as a straight forward British farmer, with the view of strength- ening the cause in which I am engaged, and shall give you what knowledge I have attained in agriculture, from my experience in farming different soils in different climates, with the best feelings that can possibly possess an Englishman's breast. Now it must be admitted, that it is a very comfortable thing for a man to have a nice good shoe on his foot — this shoe will suit one man very well, but will pinch the toes of another, and make him go crippling — and will be so loose on the foot of a third, that it will wear holes in his stockings, which is a very unse...
