THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, JUNE 7. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 7 June 1841

THE LM'NCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, JUNE 7. Private letters have been received by the Minstrel, giving the result of the investigation into the Moorgate Street Bank. Mr. Whit comb, one of the Directors, formerly a resi dent in this town, and well known to most ol its inhabitants,, and the never to be outwitted Mr. Boucher, were saiely lodged in me uueen s Bench ! Will Mr. Whitcomb now say, 'there has been no duping in the matter ?' It is clear that he has been altogether victimized by the duplicity and cunning of Mr. Boucher, and in deed, what could be more consistent with the whole of Mr. Boucher's proceedings than that l,o should wind up, by cheating the man through whom he was first enabled to cheat the public? It is. an. admirable consummation, and just what might have been anticipated. Mr. Whitcomb's property at home had been sold off to meet the liabilities of the Bank, and it was thought that a writ of foreign at tachment wouldbe immediately issued against his estates here.. . « ...

NEWSPAPERS AND CASH. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 7 June 1841

NEWSPAPERS AND CASH. (From the HoTtart Town Courier.) Abundant experience has convinced us tliat tne casn system is in the long run the only one upon which news papers and periodicals can be prosperously and indepen dently conducted. The charges for subscriptions are in dividually so small, and yet so vitally important in the aggregate, that the trouble and expence of making col lections are too ant to absorb aU the anticipated profits and to defeat the hopes of the proprietor. A suDscnoer when dunned for atwo or three dollar bill is two apt in considerately to regard it as a paltry business to impor tune him for so trifling an amount. He does not reflect that three thousand subscribers of the same mind with himself might, by declining the liquidation of 'these paltry amounts' seriously embarrass a large establisment. We can see no reason why a man should not pay nis two or three dollars down when subscribers for a newspaper as well as four or five, dollars when starting in a steam ...

POETRY. THE EARTHQUAKE. TUNE—A wet that and a flowing tea. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 7 June 1841

FOET8.V. THE EARTHQUAKE. Tune.— A. wet sheet and a floutos sea. The storm hath rose, at last, my boys, Hark 1 how the wind doth blow ; The lightning's vivid flashes too, Each moment fiercer glow. Terrific thunder roars aloud, An earthquake shakes the ground; From east to west, from north to south, Fear only reigns around. But now the rain doth cease, my boys, The winds have died away; Yet still, the light'ning does encrease, Oh 1 'tis an awful day. Terrific thunder roars, &c. See how both man and beast do quail, The 'frighted birds do fly ; The earth her mouth, doth open wide, To prove that God is nigh. Terrific thunder roars, &c. 2EGEUS.
