SECOND EDITION. LATEST INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

SECOND EDITION. LATEST INTELLIGENCE. Mr. Hugh Ross' trial came on last Wednesday. After the evidence had been gone into, Mr. Mac- dowell (his counsel) objected to the form of the in- formation, and also contended that the prisoner was not a person contemplated by the statute on which the information was framed ; in a short time the jury returned a verdict of not guilty. On Friday Mr. Ross was again arraigned for embezzlement as Clerk of the Peace for the districts of Hobart Town, New Norfolk, and Richmond, as being one office ; an objection was taken by Mr. Macdowell   to the information. Judge Montagu agreed in opinion with the defendant's counsel, and Mr. Ross was again acquitted. The Gazette announces the appointment of Mr. Kermode to a seat in the Legislative Council, vice Mr. M'Lachlan. The Review says sales of wheat have been made at from 7s. 3d. to 9s. per bushel.

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. A MEETING was held last Tuesday, at the In- fant School Room, for the purpose of forming a Mechanics' Institute in this town. The large attendance evinced the laudable desire that exists among mechanics for the establishment of such an institution. Mr. Breton, the Police Magistrate, presided.   He referred with pleasure to the appearance the meeting presented ; stated the facilities there were   for forming a library, museum, &c., and that the   colonial government would doubtless assist, by pecuniary aid, the effords of the people themselves. The Rev. Charles Price briefly laid before the meeting the principles and objects of mechanics'   institutes ; although theology was peculiarly his province, yet as a minister, as well as a citizen, he felt it his duty to promote the object in view by every means in his power. Mr. W. Henty moved the first resolution — " That this meeting deems it extemely desirab...

HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

HOBART TOWN. We are happy to find that the agriculturists and the wheat holders in general have had the discre- tion to avoid falling into former errors. They have not taken advantage of the Sydney demand to keep back their grain or to raise the price. We are satisfied that this is the best method of keep- ing the market, producing as Van Diemen's Land is allowed to do, the finest grain in the world, and at a price which, all expenses considered, is little greater at present than the cost of purchasing from America. The prices are as follow :— Wheat, per bushel, 8s. ; flour, fine, 20s. — seconds, 18s. per cwt.. English barley, 6s. ; Cape ditto, 5s. ; oats, 5s. 6d, ; maize, 5s. ; hay, £5 per ton ; straw, £3 ; potatoes, 8s. ; Port Arthur coal, per ton, 20s. delivered ; she oak, 14s. ? gum, 10s. — Murray's Review. Return of Grain and Flour exported from the port of Hobart Town, during the week ending 1st March, 1842, inclusive — Flour, 250 barrels ; ditto, 14 tons. Return of Grain and ...

P. ditto, 3s. 3d. ; foreign ditto, 1s. 2d. per gallon ; case gin, 12s. 6d. to 14s. ; pale ale, 2s. 6d. per gallon ; brandy, 4s. ditto ; arrack, 11s. ditto ; bottled beer and ale, 11s. per dozen ; Dun- bar's scarce ; soap, £29 to £35 per ton. The grain market is on the rise. The millers still exercise an influence over the prices that is not desirable. The price of fine flour at the mills was £20 to £21 ; seconds, £17 to £18 per ton. Wheat may be quoted at 8s. to 10s., with the pros- pect of an advance. The grain held by the government on 1st Feb. was 39,014 bushels wheat, and.12,910 maize.

AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

AGRICULTURE. The important interests of agriculture will re- ceive our constant attention. If Van Diemen's land is to be A corn growing country, and to sup- ply the Australasian colonies when their own pro- duce is deficient, it must be by successful competi- tion with American and Indian growers ; there can be no doubt that the fine quality of Van Diemen's Land wheat will secure it precedence, unless its high price should induce regular lmportations from other countries. In the early stage of the colony when labour was more costly and less valuable, a looser method of cultivation might yield the largest immediate profit ; but now it is important that the farnmer should improve the practice of agriculture by fol- lowing out the principles recognised by occupiers of the best corn districts of Great Britain ; and in this way, by continued steady production, in- sure a profitable return upon his capital. Exces- sively high prices are always dangerous ; the secu- rity of the colonial fa...
