TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. Non tua te moveant, sed publica vota. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 27 September 1841

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COUB1ER. ?;? Non tua te moveant, sedpublica vota. SIR,— Though clearly evident as it must be, to every reflect ing mind, that universal earthly happiness depends upon the fulfilment of the above precept;, yet does not the history of man, from the earliest period to the broils ex hibited by the press at the present time in this Colony, fully show that a radical change in morals and politics is absolute! y'oecessary in order to ensure its fulfilment. ??? ' . : The efforts of man, with but too few exceptions, have ever been opposed, to the fulfilment of the above precept. ? This opposition arises from two causes— namely— im-i potence in infancy— and'delusive circumstances during' a state of manhood— and since each succeeding age has been thus unfavorably influenced— it is right to conclude that a selfish disposition is the ruling principle of man. For do we not see that the powerful have taken to themselves, not what is just, but, whatever their passions...

The History of Duelling. By j. G. Millingeit, M. D., ' ' F.'R.

Upon (other occasions we shall- give some extracts we have ^Hmarked which comprise some very curious details. The ^^Bnuthor contends that the practice of duelling was adop ?^Btedina barbarous age, and the examples he cites tend to ^Hshow that much fallacy is mixed up with what is termed HBthe code, of honour. - The following extract in relation ^Bto the age of chivalry, the departure of which is some ^Htimes so much regretted shows that tjie rules and regula ^Htions connected with tournaments were founded upon ^Hgood principles but the author seems to be right in his ^Hprgutncnt tha't it was an absurdity to suppose that such ^Ktrialsof courage or skill were very influential for the ...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 27. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 27 September 1841

THE LAUNGESTON COURIER. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 27. We Lave received our files of Sydney papers to the 14th instant inclusive. Tbey contain no intelligence of importance, but are princi pally occupied in discussing the policy of im posing a restrictive duty upon foreign grain. It is proposed to fix an ad valorem duty of fifteen per ceut. upon all grain imported into the Colony, a measure which was supported by petitions from most of the large and in fluential districts. It is confidently stated by them, that New South Wales possesses within itself sufficient capabilities for supplying the demand of its inhabitants without the aid of importations, and that unless some protective duty be established it will be utterly impos sible to compete with the importer. It is clearly an attempt to create a monopoly, which, how ever successful, can never be of long duration. The overplus produce of this colony must find its way to the Sydney Markets, and even with the addition of fifteen per cent, woul...

POETRY. ENIGMA. In air on Ibe wings of a. spirit I glide, I'm in th'e soft ripple that swells on the tide, .

In the billow that rushes with fury and foam, Tho' in madness 'tis bursting, yet there I've a home ; In the moon's silv'ry light as in beauty it glows, Lulled by zepyhrys to rest I in calmness repose ; In the violet I'm found, in the ivy 1 twine, In the tendrils I cling of the rich purple vine ; I lurk in the lightning that blights with its glare, And respire-in the mind that is breathing with prayer ; When the hero lies dying, I float in each sigh That is wafted to home, and each loud memory ; When sweet music most thrills— most subdues to a tear, I am beard in each strain that is borne on the ear; In the fire of the glow worm I modestly beam, In the assassin's stiletto I fearfully gleam ; I was alwaysin being, yet never was born, Tho' plain, still all beauties I serve to adorn...
