LAUNCESTON ADVERTISER. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1830. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 8 February 1830

LAUNCESTON ADFBRTISEEL MONDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1830. It is tke -public duty -of a Journalist to dispel delusion; but In the discharge of this duty he must not expect to find his road perfectly free from the arrows of those who are interested in preventing the iBgis of truth from confronting and dissipatiug their power. On various occasions we have felt ourselves compelled to comment in a strain of some severi ty, not only on the manner in which the subordi nate members of our Police are permitted to arnioy by vexatious informations, the well-intentioned and respectable Junkeeper ; but, also on the de ficient and extremely erroneous Act of Council, by which the disc* etion of the Magistrates is seal ed up and bereaved «f its ability to decline im jposing any penalty ot all when justice and expe dience would cprabinedly render such a course desirable. We are aware that the Act complained «f w«s, when passed, most urgently demanded, to check with a strong arm the ruinous and dis gusting sy...

THE TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 8 February 1830

THE TURF. Whether the sanguine Adventurers wbo Slave so expensively speculated, by sending Stads -of tfntnmgh-bred Mares to Colonies ?tike New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land, wight not with «sore wisdom and greater advantage 4tave invested their capital in a different manner? is a question which by this time, we dare say, they are somewhat disagreeably .prepared to answer- Bat, whe ther the introduction of sach stock, at such a time, and under existing circumstances, is likely to benefit, or to injure us3 we are aware, may admit of disputation. Those who sought these distant shores with a pas sionate attachment to British Sports, and whose purses, when not clrawn from by 'home taxation, would support « life -of lux ury, will of coerce view the Race Course as a «o mean Colonial desideratum ; whilst those, on the contrary, whose views in emi grating, were fired exclusively on rural gieaoe and «naspiring humility, wiH, . perhaps, be inclined to Jatnent, that instead of Racers, a bre...

IMPORTS AND EXPORTS FOR THE LAST QUARTER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 8 February 1830

IMPORTS AND EXPORTS FOR THE LAST QUARTER. The proudest era of our Editorial life— the proudest day for this County in general, and the grievously ill-used tuwu of Launrrston in particu lar, has burst upon us with a brilliancy and splendor which some who shall bo nameless would have fain prevented.

Pressed down as we are by multifari ous annoyances, by wants innumerable, witheld from improvement by countless petty and vexati ous local enactments, we to this very moment, have not one paved or Macadamised street, and the very unfinished state of our nominal high ways, renders them during more than six moulds out of twelve almost impassable, even by horse men, (saying nothing of loaded carts) in 'act, at this present writing we could point out a street (so call...

SYDNEY EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 15 February 1830

SYDNEY EXTRACTS. StATfe oftue Crops.— The maize, all accounts testify, is at present in the most beautiful state ; and as all the fields of blasted wheat which have been mown into hay, are now planting with corn we expect a most abundant harvest, should a day's rain new and then intervene between, this and April. Hence the Distilleries may be getting ready. But if the Settler:; will take our advice* they will trust to pigs for a fair price for their maize, rather than to Distilleries, (rolden Pork is the object of the prudent thrifty settler who fears no bailiffs. Poor fellows! few are without fears of this sort, either directly or indirectly. Pigsfypt/rk however, not the Sydney Market, are the only prudent consumption for maize. Next April, corn will be selling for .eighteen pence a bushel atParramatta, and the Brisbane Distillery, to avoid tfie enormous tnrnpike tolls, and the still mtre ruinous'1 market dues' of Sydney.
