TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 April 1842

TO TIIE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. Mn. EnurTon.-The attention of Government has frequently been directed by our local press to the state of the Launceston wharf, bIt amongst all the improvements suggested, I am not aware that the one, which I am now about proposing has ever been presented to its notice, and yet how great would be the advantages resulting from its accomplishment ? A great drawback to our port, is nndouhedtly the bar, at the head of the river, on which it is not an ilnfrequent occurrence lir vessels to get aground in attempltillg to cross, whilst those of large tonnitage dare not evenl ventlure, but are tiun der the necessity of discharging a part, and sometlmes the vwhole of their cargo with lighters ; the loss of time and the expense incurred by be ing obliged to have recourse to this method are very great. To avoid these evils let a wharf be formed on the opposite shile of the river (on the government svwanl) below the bar nlongside of which, vessels would ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 April 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. Sen.-I beg to complain through the medium of your paper of mismanagement or inefficiency in some department of the Post Office. I was informed at your oflice that a number of your periodical of the 19th March was put in the post directed to me, which I sent for to the Post Office at Westbury on the following Friday, but did not receive it. Some time ago I received a letter ftrom a fiiend in Sydney in which he informed me that he lhad posted some news papers to my address, but they did not come to hand ; and by a letter from England, I (lcarn that the Leeds Mercury, a weekhla paper, is regu larly forwarded to me, and yet I only get about one in two months. I made a voyage to England in the year 1840, and when there took tihe opportunity of enquiring about the last-named periodical, and flmnd it Ihad been scnt regularly: I had only received one number during the space of a year previous to my voyage home. By in serting the above you will oblig...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 April 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. Sin,--The teetotalers of Launceston hardly ap pear to deserve so much credit for moderation as you have awarded to them. The letter signed " Nelghbour" advanced charges against all the brewers of Launceston, that if proved would de servedly draw down upon them the indignation of the public, and expose them to the punislhment of criminals. Since thie publication of that letter a public meeting of the society has been held, and eight or ten letters and communications have ap peared in the newspapers ; but in no instance has any disapprobation been expressed of the course adopted by "Neilghbour:" on tihe contrary, his letter has been defended by some of the writers, and more than justified by "A Witness," who says that "Neighbour" is right in accusing all timhe brewers of Launceston with hlposing upon timhe public a poisonous conmpound under the name of ale, and very logically proceeds to establish his conclusion by the admission of a brewer, w...

PRECEPTS FOR YOUNG FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 April 1842

PRECEPTS FOR YOUNG FARMERS. The following maxims for young farmers are extracted from a periodical entitled The Culttvator, published at Albany, United States: Regard all persons whose time and labour are wholly at your command, as beings for whose health, comfort, and good conduct in this life, you will be held most fearfidly responsible in the life to comle. Valueno as you ought the experience of others, and your own will cost you far less than .without such aid; since to use theirs costs only an effort of memory, whereas tile price of your own will often be the loss of health, fortune, and character. Leave show to spendtlhrifts and fools, while you and your families consult only tasteful simplicity, comfort, and usefuldness in all your arrangements and expenses. The only just means of increasing wealth are constant industry-true economy of time as well as money-well directed labour, and the regular application of a portion of our fair profits to increase our capital. Never expect...
