MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 April 1842

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. THE inhabitants of Launceston witnessed with delight the establishment of a Me- chanics' Institute. It could be productive of no evil ; its objects were elevating and harmonising ; it would bring together classes too long distinct, and sects too widely se- parated ; it would draw off the attention of the mechanic from debasing employ- ments, and find him rational and unexpen- sive pleasures ; the artizan would meet with his employer, the scholar with the tradesman, where none could esteen them- selves degraded by receiving instruction, imparting knowledge, and comparing opi- nions : so thought every intelligent and gene- rous observer. The people of Launceston were satisfied that no party objects could be contem- plated, or private interests promoted, when every man was invited to membership, and when every farthing contributed would be controlled by the members themselves, through officers of their own election. They were satisfied that the objects pro- fessed...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, April 16, 1842. REPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 April 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, April 16, 1842. REPRESENTATION. THE Imperial Government cannot long evade the claims of its Australasian subjects -they must obtain the full enjoyment of British privileges. Sydney has moved in earnest ; the difficulties created by division are at length overcome, and the prayer of one hundred thousand people must reach their rulers however distant : nor will it be unavailing. But we ask-Is Van Diemnen's Land indifferent on a subject deemed so momentous by our colonial neighbours? We have heard loud and boisterous com- plaints of misrule-they have issued from every corner of the land-they have been echoed by every press in the island : but many improvements desired by the colo- nists can never be accomplished by a go- vernment constituted like ours, and many regulations they condemn are originated and supported by the government at at home. What is the remedy for these defects and evils ? The colony can hardly be amended or relieved by phillipics pro- ...

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

NEW ZEALAND. The following information respecting the approach at 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 east, and the latter is on the west side of the port. The former is erected upon a point of land called Pencarron 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 trian...

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

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. MR. EDITOR. — The attention of Government has frequently been directed by our local press to the state of the Launceston wharf, but 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 undoubtedly the bar, at the head of the river, on which it is not an unfrequent occurence for vessels to get aground in attempting to cross, whilst those of large tonnage dare not even venture, but are un- der the necessity of discharging a part, and sometimes the whole 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 side of the river (on the government swamp) below the bar alongside of ...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 April 1842

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. General Scott, the commander-in-chief of the United States army, had offered him- self as a candidate for the presidency.   The decided tone of President Tyler in regard to the Bank question, had had a de- pressing effect on speculative property and fancy stocks. The yellow fever was rapidly on the de- cline at New Orleans. Sir Richard Jackson, the administrator of the government of Canada and com- mander of the forces, had appointed a court martial upon Mr. Johnson, for participating in the capture of Colonel Grogan when within the American territory ; he was sen- tenced to be discharged from the corps. Extensive improvements have recently taken place in the London Docks. The ex- pense will be little short of £20,000 ; and a similar amount has been laid out during the last six years in building. At a shop-window in Drury lane a paper is exhibited, on which is written " The Genuine New Prince of Wales's Shaving Powder sold here." At Portsmouth, on Wedn...

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

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR.—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 office 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 from a friend in Sydney in which he informed me that he had posted some news papers to my address, but they did not come to hand ; and by a letter from England, I learn that the Leeds Mercury, a weekly 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 the opportunity of enquiring about the last-named periodical, and found it had been sent 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 oblige, ...

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

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SlR. — The teetotalers of Launceston hardly ap- pear to deserve so much credit for moderation as you have awarded to them. The letter signed "Neighbour" 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 punishment of criminals. Since the 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 "Neighbour :" on the 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 the brewers of Launceston with imposing upon the public a poisonous compound under the name of ale, and very logicially proceeds to establish his conclusion by the admission of a brewer, who ...

MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 April 1842

MISCELLANY. It was a remark of Edmund Burke, and worthy of becoming an aphorism, that " the chief advantage of character is, that it is a shield against calumny." LANGUAGES.-There are 4,500 languages throughout the world, besides the language of the eyes.-American Paper. A Yankee paper says, " Our glass went clear forty degrees below nothing ; and would have gone much lower, but it wasn't long enough." Another paper says, " We have no thermometer in this town, so it gets as cold as it pleases." All the world has heard of the remarkable item of an electioneering attorney's bill to a successful candidate-" To having been thrown out of a tavern window while can- vassing for you, and having two ribs broken by the fall, £500."-But one of the charges sent in to Captain Elliot for compensation on account of damages, arising out of the attack on Canton, by a Yankee merchant, is worthy of renown.
