THE INSOLVENT LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 April 1842
THE INSOLVENT LAW. TIE Insolvent Law, designed to mitigate the sufferings of the debtor and to protect the property of the creditor, is daily sink ing in the estimation and confidence of the public. It is the refuge to which the spend thrift and the speculator direct their eyes for encouragement, rather than the shelter of the erring and unfortunate when over taken by the storm. A process which, by its frequency has ceased to be disgraceful, diverts the cloud from the debtor to the creditor, and frees the former from every difficulty atonce. What is an oath to a robber, and what is disgrace to a swin dler I Such are not wanting in comrades to applaud their dexterity, and to secrete their spoil. The too limited discretion of a too lenient commissioner is but a feeble check to dishonesty, where its practice is so easy and its inducements so strong. The most stupid villain can work an insol vency with faicility, laugh at his creditors, bow to the commissioner, and walk away with his di...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, April 23, 1842. AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 April 1842
LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, April 23, 1842. AGRICULTURE. THEt depressed condition of the agricultu ral interest is a subject of universal com plaint, but to prescribe the remedy--" in this the labour lies." After considering all the plans suggested by the press we are unable to escape the conviction that no sudden change can be cfl'ected. The de cline of prosperity has been rapid ; but its recovery must be slow : nor shall we seek a momentary popularity by encouraging hopes which may increase the bitterness of disappointment. A notion has been encouraged by the press, and naturally adopted by the grower, that the average price of wheat will not be less than ten shillings per bushel; and we believe tile notion is injurious, because it is pernicious. When intercourse with Europe was less frequent, the lpolmltion of surrounding colonies small, and the cost of manufactured goods much greater, a price enormously high and dangerously fluctuating might sometimes occur; but the increase ...

AGRICULTURE. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 April 1842
AGrRICULTURE. From a Lecture by Mr. John Trells. (Continued.) This might appear to a man unacquainted with farming to make no difference, but I am sure any nan that has seen land cropped inl both ways must perceive the one is an improving system, while that of taking three corn crops after the turnips, is a system that must be condemned. I have much satisfaction in telling you that it is now very rarely adopted. I know full well it is laid dlown by some nmen that, two corn or white crops should never be taken in succession, Ierhllaps on land that will grow with one ploughing a good crop of wheat, with little or no manure, and comparatively speaking, with little expense. I. agree with them, it is the very best system ; but, if we look at the land ill this neighbourhood, and set down the expence of lime and other mat ters that is absolutely necessary to enable you to grow a fair crop of wheat, I am of opinion that, unless the barley is taken between the wheat and turnips, no malt canl...
