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

SYDNEY. The markets generally continue in an improv- ing state, with an upward tendency in most arti- cles of good quality — inferior are quite neglected — although the amount of business done since our last has been limited, arising from the firmness of holders, who ask increased rates ; yet it is satis- factory to know that trade is progressing and con- fidence restored. GRAIN AND FLOUR. — These articles remain without any alteration ; a few tons of Chilian have changed hands at £17 per ton. There is no alteration in the millers' prices. PROVISIONS. — Irish pork :— There has been somewhat more inquiry after sound samples, and the market for this description remains, though without any sales being effected : holders are now asking £3 15s. to £5 per barrel.

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 April 1842

PORT PHILLIP. The town of Corio was not without its proportion of distress. Captain Lewis succeeds Captain Beers, deceased, in command of the military de- tachment in the province. The Rev. Mr. Geoghegan has resigned his charge as Roman Catholic pastor in Melbourne. Dr. Thompson has been appointed Ma- naging Director of a branch of the Union Bank established at Corio. The Bank of Australasia was said to be contemplating the establishment of a similar agency there.

THE CHRONICLE'S EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 April 1842

THE CHRONICLE'S EXAMINER. EITHER the Cornwall Chronicle is not gifted with memory, or he calculates on the forgetfullness of his readers. To serve a momentary purpose, without the decency of a moderate pause, he publishes one week a fiction, and stifles it the next. What Protean shapes has the Examiner already assumed in his disordered vision ! The Messrs. Dowling have violated a covenant by establishing it; then a new set of pro prietors rise to his incantations: the Exa- miner is a teetotal paper; then it is edited by a brewer : it has only forty subscribers ; then it is a money speculation. Without reflection, this editor slips from lie to lie, unconscious that contradictory statements are neutralized by their dissonance, and that his paragraphs, like some chemical substances, contluse and destroy each ot her. Are we expected to dovetail incompatible falsehoods, or to answer every manifesto of this frantic calumniator ? The mournful catalogue of his debts and debtors, his assets ...

SYDNEY. WVe have Sydney papers to the 81st ult., from which we make the following extracts: BALMAIN.-Progress of the Voluntary System. -We are happy to inform our readers that the erection of a Presbyterian church at Bahnain, to be altogether unconnected with the state, has already been contracted for, and is now, we be lieve in actual progress. It will be erected ofrourse entirely by voluntary contributions. WVehave also been informed that a Presbyterian church, on the voluntary system, is to be immediately erected at Pyrmont, where a comparatively large number of Scotch Mechanics are already located, a very eligible allotment having been procured for the purpose during the past week.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNUESTON EXAMINER. USE, vcr18ss AUUSE. Mn. EnrTon,-" There is a distinction between use and abuse," are your words when expressing your dissent from teetotal principles. Similar phraseology has of late beetn much itn ague ; and not perceiving tile soundness of the bjiection In this case, I gladly avail myself of your did offer to make known the sentiments of all parties, if brought forward temperately. Now, Sir, you assume that to put intoxicating liquors into a human stomach in small quantities is the proper use of such substances. Here arises a boundary question,' of a most perplexing charac ter. Pray, Mr. Editor, where and when l does the rbolse begin? By what instruments do we find our true position, and know " when the line Is crossed ?" Rather say, is not a stomach pro perly used when digestible ndil nourishing sub stances are put into it ? and abused when tile con trary takes place? Alcohol, or spirits of wine, is the product of fermentation, the first ...
