TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 9 August 1841

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. Sir,— I perceive on perusing your journal of this week that my ' advertisement' has roused the hitherto dormant excellencies of a ' Well-wisher to Youth,' and that rather than 1 should any longer serve the public, { (never, of course, having before done himself the honor' 'to become the publics most faithful servant. Now I should be the last to object to any one's proposing him self a candidate for public favour, in the usual upright and honest way of doing so— and, especially, in offering to promote education ; a subject, in the furthering of which, 1 would sacrifice millions of money were I pos sessed of the power to do so. But though I have read, with uncommon attention, your correspondent's tirade of abuse of myself, yet 1 cannot discover one word tending to show that the public would receive, in ex phange for my services, either a servant more faithful or even so faithful as myself. I can, however, find in his production that, he is qual...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, AUGUST 9. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 9 August 1841

THE LAUMGESTON COURIER. MONDAY, AUGUST 9. It is a matter for just congratulation on all hands, that there is at length some probability of an improvement in the management of the road department in this colony. Of all subjects whicli can possibly come under the notice of a journalist, there is none deserving more serious attention than this, and none more closely af fecting the interests of every reader. Not only is it important when regarded in relation to its effects upon the value of property, and the im provement of trade, but also when viewed as a means of increasing the social and domestic comforts of the people. It was justly le marked by Mr. Gleadotv at the late meeting, that the. roads of this colony were never in a worse slate, than at the present time, and j-et there had never been less doing in the shape of repairs. It is lime therefore, for the people to bestir themselves; it is agreed by all that something must he done, but in what shape or form is a matter for their s...

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 parentswho resided in Launceston six years ago, that the minds of their respective sons presented the most lameutable proofs of in efficient instruction ; and thai in order to remedy which, they Were pleased to confide the education of them to me.

THE PERILS AND ADVENTURES OF THE CRESTFALLEN CAPTAIN, Alias, THE BLACK SCORPION. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 16 August 1841

THE PERILS AND ADVENTURES OF THE CREST FALLEN CAPTAIN, Alias, THE BLACK SCORPION. Introduction. — His Birth, Parentage, and Boyhood. — When a biographer under takes to record the life and adventures of a man of «uch universal notoriety as the Black Scorpion, he cannot help feeling that the public will expect much from him, and there is every reason to fear, that tbe expectations of the readers will be raised to such a pitch as to require more than ordinary talent and genius to gratify them. However competent the author may be to narrate plain matters of fact, he at once professes himself altogether inadequate lo the task of commenting thereon, in a style that their hidiousness and atrocity deserve. It is much to be regretted that a great deal' of the life of the Black Scorpion is involved in an impenetrable mystery, and many of the most important ^events occurred in distant countries ; of these exploits, but little can be known, except from the personal narrations of the captain him...

It is with much regret we have been com pelled to continue our notice of the Cornwall Chronicle, hut, even now, although he has ex erted himself by disgusting and loathsome abuse wishing to injure and annoy us, we are yet willing to spare him, if only out of respect to the feelings of a mother and her family. We are actuated by no animosity, but en . tirely from the repeated provocations of tlie Chronicle. If, however, we are spurred on by ike injudicious efforts of our contemporary, we would advise his friends immediately to . secure a cell in the asylum at New Norfolk; in the mean time, a straight jacket will be po sitively indispensible. We are quite willing ' to forget and forgive' but, however much the public may hold, that private life ought not to be made the subject of exposure in the columns of a newspaper, we are sure ' they will not enforce a law sacred to the protection of those who respect it, in favour of one by whom it is habitually abused.

In Mr. Clifford's advertisement x-a the deplorable state of education in this place, tend which has made the circuit of the Launcesteri journals, there is a circumstance stated which appears to me of so singular and extraordinary a character as to merit a more extended discussion, and to be brought' mote pro minently before the public than it has yet been. Mr. Clifford states lhat about six years ago the minds rf the youth of this town were rapidly verging towards'swate of idiotcy, through the want of an efficient system of education— and what is still, if possible, more singular is, that this process of deterioration and decay had com. menced from the earliest infancy, so that the poor dear innocents had scarcely opened their eyes upon the light of day, and breathed the vital air, when their mental powers began to recede and wither away into their original not...

Sydney market, July 27. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 16 August 1841

Sydney BSarket, July 27. The markets during the week have been quite inactive and the business restricted to sales by the hammer, which have produced wretched results, with the exception of Sugar. Wheat ? About fifty loads, of Wheat have been sold at from 6s. to 8s per biislitl. but the average price lias not been more than 6*. 9d. per bushel. Baelev — Only about ten loads of Barley have ar rived at the Corn market.

Flour. — The price of Flour is at a stand-till, and, as snips .ire continually arriving from difterent parts with it, we trust the millers will not again think of a further rise. Vegetables ? Vegetables have been plentiful, but the gardeners complain s;idly of the rain.
