AGRICULTURE. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 April 1842

AGRICULTURE, From a Lecture by Mr. John Wells. (Continued from our last.) Although an adequate degree of knowledge concerning it be seemingly of very easy attainment, yet in fact no small degree of judgment and ex- perience are necessary to arrange the plan, and to adapt it to all the varieties of climate, soil, and situation. It is therefore not to be wondered at that many different opinions should be entertained, though all are, perhaps, very much founded upon truth, what would be suitable to one case being totally inapplicable to another. As before ob- served, the great art of cultivation consists in the maintenance of the land, at least, in sound con- dition, and without impoverishing it, if it cannot be enriched. The main object of all rotation should therefore be, to establish such a series of crops as would prevent the too frequent recurrence of any one of these which are considered exhaust- ing. The land (to use the farmer's phrase) " grows tired" of a repetition of the same...

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

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, April 9, 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...

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- ing a command or filling an executive situ- ation thus, for example, promoting as it is said all those commanders who have held that rank ten years, and who have been three years actually employed ; and all first lieutenants who have held commis- sions ten. or perhaps fifteen years, and who have been full six years of this time in sea- going ships, the half of i...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 April 1842

NEW ZEALAND. The following information respecting the approach to Wellington at Port Nichol son, and New Plymouth at Taranaki, is published, as likely to be useful to com manders of vessels proceeding to those parts of New Zealand. PORT NICHOLSON. Two land-marks have recently been erected at and near the entrance of the port. The one is triangular, and about fifty feet high; the other is composed of casks set on end, and is about fifteen feet high, and has a flag staff thereon of about twenty feet high. Both are painted white. The former is on the cast, and the latter is on the west side of the port. The former is erected upon a point of land called Pencarron I-Head, which is about 200 feet above the level of the sea; the latter is on the loftiest point on the other side of the entrance to the port, and is about 500 feet above the level of the sea. The first-named however is by far the most apparent at sea, and should consequently be sought in preference by the mariner. The triangul...

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 anount 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.
