LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 April 1842

LAUNCESTON. There is not the slightest alteration in the wheat market ; the quotation for a fair sample of wheat is 6s. per bushel. The news from Sydney is rather of a cheering character. Our own correspondent says — The   market has been in a very backward and unsettled state latterly, but it now begins to assume a brighter aspect, and business to settle down into some sort of regularity : V. D. L. wheat is 7s. to 8s. per bushel ; fine flour, £19 to £20 per ton ; seed oats, 6s. to 6s. 6d. per bushel ; oaten hay, £8 to £9 per ton ; barley, 5s. per bushel ; all other kinds of V. D. Land produce quite saleable at fair prices. From other private sources we glean that there had been an arrival tea ; it was selling at £7 per chest for the 50 chests, and £7 10s. in smaller lots. Sugar was chiefly in the hands of a few parties, and was selling at £30 to £35 per ton. The last sale of Launceston wheat was at 8s., but the gentleman writing adds, "I think it will rise." BARLEY — English, may b...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 April 1842

SYDNEY. The markets generally continue in an improv- ing state, with an upward tendency in most arti- cles of good quality — inferior are quite neglected — although the amount of business done since our last has been limited, arising from the firmness of holders, who ask increased rates ; yet it is satis- factory to know that trade is progressing and con- fidence restored. GRAIN AND FLOUR. — These articles remain without any alteration ; a few tons of Chilian have changed hands at £17 per ton. There is no alteration in the millers' prices. PROVISIONS. — Irish pork : — There has been somewhat more inquiry after sound samples, and the market for this description remains, though without any sales being effected : holders are now asking £3 15s. to £5 per barrel. American — of which there is in the market a new importation, ex St. Laurence, of excellent quality, equal to Irish — remains undisposed of. BEEF is still neglected at very low and unre- munerating prices. Butter, cheese, hams, ...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 April 1842

CHINA.       Canton papers of December contain but little news of importance, no further in- telligence from the northern squadron having been received. Trade was dull, but was being carried on at Canton with little interruption. On the 11th December there were (exclusive of ships of war) sixty-one British, eleven American, one Bremen, one Peruvian, one French, and one Dutch ship in the Chinese waters. Preparations were being made for renewing the war next season with increased vigour. Major Ge- neral Lord Saltoun was expected, as second in command to Sir Hugh Gough, with a considerable reinforcement of the land forces and a line-of-battle ship for China, had arrived in Simon's Bay early in Janu- ary. The French frigate L'Erigone, 46, Captain Cecile, arrived in Macao on the 7th December, having on board Colonel Dubois de Jansigne, envoy from the King of the French to the court of Pekin. The intelligence from China also relates to the re-occupat...

INDIAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 April 1842

INDIAN NEWS. Bombay papers to the 6th November have been received at Sydney. Calcutta papers of 26th October state that cholera had broken out amongst the troops embarked on board the Thetis for Moul- mein. The civil service is to be divided into six classes ; the designations of senior and junior merchant, writer, and factor are to be abolished. The government of Ceylon was in a minority on a questlon of military expenditure. A ship of war, to mount eighteen guns, belonging to the Imaum of Muscat, had been launched, and, by his direction, named Victoria. By the overland intelligence had been received that Dr. Buckhaus had arrived in London from Germany, on his way to Ireland, to accom- pany the mission of nuns who were about to embark for Calcutta, to impart the bene- fits of an enlightened education to the chil- dren of all classes there. Six priests had sailed from France for China, in a French frigate ; and five priests for the mission of Siam. The Bengal rice crops had been se-...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 April 1842

SYDNEY. We have papers to the 26th ultimo, per William. The Sydney people have at last carried a petition for legislation by repre- sentation, and appointed a committee to carry out their views. The Herald of 24th March says — We yesterday recorded three grounds of com- plaint against this committee : — 1. That they had allowed more than three weeks to intervene be- tween their appointment and their first meeting ; 2. That at their first meeting only ten of their number out of the twenty-four were in attend- ance ; and, 3. That they had placed upon their list of notices of motions an absurd and unconsti- tutional proposition, as to whether the legislature should consist of one house or two. If we can find room in our next number we will copy the outline of a proposed bill to be brought into parliament by Mr. Buller to accomplish the object contemplated. The qualification for voters, the number of mem- bers, and indeed the whole detail of a legis- lative enactment are to be agreed up...

EDUCATION. 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 from 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.
