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

SYDNEY. We have papers to the 26th ultimo, per W~illiam. Ih Sydney people have at last carried a petition for legislation by repro 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 conmnittee:-1. That they lind allowed more than three weeks to intervene he tween their appointment and their first meeting; 2. That at their first meeting only ten of their number ont of the twenty-lbir were in attend ance; and, 3. That they had placed upon their list of notices of motions an absurd and nnconsti tutional proposition, as to whether the legislature shnlld consist of one house or two. If we can find room in our (next number we will copy the outline of a proposed lill to be brounhlt into parliament by Mr. Buller to accomplish the object contemplated. The qhualification fhv voters, the number of mem hers, and indeed the whole detail of a legis lative enactment are to be agreed upon by the...

DARING ATTEMPT TO SET FIRE TO THE HORSE GUARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 April 1842

DARING ATTEMPT TO SET FIRE TO THE HOUSE GUARDS. A gentleman connected with the Horse Guards acquainted us, so late as Wednes- day last, with the fact that a great sensation was created there on Wednesday morning, about one o'clock, in consequence of a com- bustible ball having been thrown into the building with the intention of setting fire to it. But the aim of the incendiary not being well taken, it fell at the feet of a sentry on duty, who immediately communi- cated the circumstance to the authorities ; and they are in possession, as we are in- formed of a portion of the destructive mis- sile. But what makes this circumstance the more extraordinary is, that a similar com- bustible ball was thrown on the same morn- ing into the barracks behind the National Gallery, at Charing-cross. It was fortun- ately discovered in time to prevent the in- tention of the incendiary from taking effect. The authorities at the Horse Guards were occupied during the whole of Wednesday in endeavouring ...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. FIRE AT WOOLWICH DOCKPARD. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 April 1842

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. FIRE AT WOOLWICH DOCKYARD. About half-past three on Saturday morn- ing, police constable 291 R, who was on duty at the western end of the dock- yard, adjoining Charlton Pier, discovered flames issuing from a wooden building in which Mr. Grant's patent fuel for steam- boats was prepared. He instantly gave an alarm, by springing his rattle, and in a very short time the utmost confusion prevailed. An express having been sent off to the police in the town, as well as to the garri- son, the drums beat, bugles sounded, the fire-bells were rung, soldicrs were seen marching from all quarters, and the alarm speedily spread throughout the town. In- spector Robinson, who was on duty at the dockyard, mustered his men, and proceeded, in company with a detachment of the 15th foot, to the spot, taking one of the small dockyard engines along with him. Unfor- fortunately the engine was in such bad repair that it broke down upon the road. On arriving at the spot, the flames were bur...

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

C H I N A. 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 bmin carried on at Canton with little interruption. On the 11th December there were (exclusive of ships of war) sixty-one British, Eleven American, one ]3romen, 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'1ri gone, 40, 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-occupation of Chusan and the capture of Ningpo and ...

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

MISCELLANEOUS. THE Avon has put into Port with only 350 barrels sperm oil, the cause of which we were unable to ascertain, in consequence of being re- stricted from going on board. We are therefore unable to give the particulars of vessels spoken by her. — Herald, March 25. THE Avon, whaler, spoke the Caroline, of Syd- ney, Captain Hunter, in November last, with 120 barrels of sperm oil ; the Tamar, of Sydney, Cap- tain Butcher, in October last, out 13 months, with 250 harrels of sperm oil ; the Onyx of Lon- don, from Sydney, Captain Brown, in November, with 100 barrels sperm oil. — Herald, March 26. THE Napoleon has returned from the whaling ground with no success, having only taken one fish (sperm), after being out three months. They fell in with a large shoal, but only caught one, such are the fortunes of whaling. We have. in our Port an English whaler, which in seven months has barrelled 500 barrels of sperm oil of fish caught to the northward. — Perth Gazette.

ARMY AND NAVY PROMOTION. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 April 1842

ARMY AND NAVY PROMOTION. There are a variety of reports in circula tion relative to the probable extent of the anxiously looked-for promotion ; but it is agreed on all sides that the present state of the finances of the country will not admit of the brevet being so large as was at first hoped for. In the navy it is supposed, by those who believe themselves to be in the secret, that the flag promotion will not at most go below the year 1807, thus taking in Captain Charles Gordon; and that in the other ranks it will be limited to a cer tain seniority, together with the length of the actual services of each officer now hold mn a comunand or filling an executive situ ation thus, for example, promoting as it is said nil those commanders who have held that rank ten years, and who have been three years actually employedt and all first lieutenants who have hiehl conkuis sints tenl. or perhaps fifteen years, and who have been full six years of this time in sea going ships, the half of it as ...

THE SCOTCH CURRENCY SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 April 1842

THE SCOTCH CURRENCY SYSTEM.   WE have thought the following, from a late work by Mr. Crosbie, Manager of the   National Bank of Scotland, would not at this moment be uninteresting. Perhaps one of the most surprising things in the   history of money, is the long-continued   and safe note circulation of Scotland. In   exact proportion with England, as respects   population, rental, shipping, and agricul- ture, Scotland ought to have from four to seven millions afloat as a circulating me- dium, whereas about half that amount answers the purpose. After adverting to the foregoing state-   ments respecting the comparative smallness   of the circulation of bank paper, Mr. Crosbie proceeds to the causes which are in constant operation to secure such an economical use of the Scotch notes, and produce the very extraordinary difference in the amount of   the note circulation of ...

CIVIL SITTINGS. WEDNESDAY, 6th APRIL. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 April 1842

CIVIL SITTINGS. WEDNESDAY, 6th APRIL. There was only one civil case, for trial, and that of a very frivolous nature. The plaintiff was Mary Smith, residing at Norfolk Plains, and the defendant Charles Stephens, who occupies an ad- joining farm. Plaintiff had been in possession of a close, of which defendant claimed part, and in- sisted upon turning his pigs and poultry, to feed   upon Mrs. Smith's barley. On the 1st of Janu- ary, these pigs were driven off by direction of plaintiff, and whilst on their way to the pound were forcibly rescued by defendant. Plaintiff was therefore deprived of compensation for the damage done. Mr. Stephens, who appeared for Mrs. Smith, stated, that as the defendant had made claim to portion of the land, it was thought he would have defended the case on the plea of ownership, and that then would be virtually try- ing a question of title ; instead of so doing this had merely pleaded the general issue. The evidence proved the rescuing of the p...

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 Chillian 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.

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

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, April 0, 1842. WHAT colonial party does the Examiner espouse? Such a question has been deemed worthy the attention of the curious. We should be disposed to publish as our motto, "Sworn to no master, of no sect am I," had it not been first uttered by the poet at the feet of an Imperial conqueror. Declarations of editorial independence and impartiality are so liable to perverse con tradiction, that we are content to enjoy, without boasting, a freedom from predi lection, and to remain until the last pos sible moment spectators on the margin of the arena without mingling in the fray. We believe a large body of the colonists are unbiassed observers of the Executive; prepared to applaud its measures where they are wise and beneficial ; to condemn them when they are erroneous and per nicious ; and to pass them by when they are indifferent. To express the senti ments of this large and invaluable portion of society will comprise our utmost am bition. We shall a...
