THE LAUNCESTON COURIER MONDAY, JULY 26. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 26 July 1841

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, JULY 26. Avaricious as was the conduct of many settlers last year, in withholding tbeir grain from the market, when more than a remunerating price was offered, and seriously as they have since suffered from the natural consequence which resulted from this avarice ; — the importation of lame supplies of foreign grain— there is still a spirit of covetousness existing amongst many settlers, and a fond lingering hope for scarcity and high prices, which we advise them at once to dispel ; nothing can be more fallacious than an expectation of this kind, whether it be viewed from present appearances or past experience. It comes within our knowledge, however, that whilst this spirit of deceitful expectancy still operates upon the minds of many, and induces them to reject the offers which are made for their forthcoming crops, their are others of greater foresight and more prudence who have entered into contracts to supply considerable quantities of wheat at the...

NEWS FROM ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 26 July 1841

NEWS FROM ENGLAND. The despatches brought by the Rajnk, zouvey the in telligence of the supercession of the Attorney-General Mr. Macdowell, and the late Solicitor- General Mr' Jones. The disagreements between these two gentle men have been the occasion of this decision in the ab sence of any interference on the part of the Lieutenant Governor, it being deemed unavoidable that the Queen's service must suffer thereby, and Mr. Macdowell having appealed home against the indisposition of the local government to condemn the conduce or nis colleague, the Secretary of State had but two courses left him to pursue, viz., either to dismiss Mr. Jones at the instance of the Attorney-General, or to refuse to recognise the complaint of the Attorney-General, or in other words, supersede him. The first course would have implied a censure of the local government— the second would have been too violent a measure of injustice, They hit upon a third expedient ; they dismissed the.

[ADVERTISEMENT.] MR. CLIFFORDS ACADEMY TO THE PUBLIC. SEVERAL persons having of late expressed a wish that the terms of this Academy were re duced to a scale corresponding to other establish ments for instructing youth— but, above all, have felt no small degree of surprise on the terms being, in variably, demanded in advance. I, the conductor, am therefore under the necessity of again publishing my motives for deviating from the plans of other teach ers. They are as follow.— It is known to many most respectable parents who resided in Launceston six years ago, that the minds of their respective sons presented ihe most lamentable proofs of in efficient instruction ; and that in order to remedy which, they were pleased to confide the education of' them to me. On examination of the pupils placed under my care, those of them whose educa tion was so deplorably defective, I found that the cause ought not to be attributed to the defects of their natural faculties, but to the abuse of those ...

THIRD APPEARANCE OF THE BOY JONES AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 26 July 1841

THIRD APPEARANCE OF THE BOY JONES AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE.   The boy Jones, who on two former occasions effected such a mysterious entrance into Buckingham-palace, on Monday, achieved a similar exploit. The urchin was   liberated from Tothill-fields Prison on Tuesday, the 2nd of March, his term of imprisonment as a 'rogue and a vagabond' having expired. On the day previous to his liberation, he was visited by Mr. Hall, or some one acting in the name of that respectable magistrate, and asked if whether he (Jones) was willing to go on board, a ship The boy did not object to go on board, but we understand be wanted to make certain conditions which were not acceded to; his father then sent for, and Jones was given into his charge, with strict directions that he should take every possible care of him, and watch his actions ; at the same time the offer to send the   boy abroad was renewed (and we understand it was of fered in the first instance some wee...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. The communication, headed the ' Crest-fallen Cap tain, alias Black Scorpion,' has been received, but is too severe for our present -use; it will be of service when we bring our six-and-thirty pounders to bear. The same remark will apply to ' The Cauldron, and The Bitter Pill.' The favours of our other Correspondents will be at tended to in due course. We had written an article upon the subject of the late fire, and the 'villainous' insinuations against Mr. Little, but have given preference to one of the many communications which have reached us on the subject.

The place of the nativity is under ground, with an access by 20 steps, now fitted up as a small chapel, floored with marble, 38 feet high by 10 broad, where massy silver lamps are kept constantly burning^ /and the precise spot where the son of God came forth is marked by a large star of marble inlaid withjasper, with a radiance, or glory, and -an in scription to that purpose.
