ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 April 1842

ENGLISH.     BIRMINGHAM. — An improvement in trade has taken place — there is a better feeling amongst merchants and manufacturers ; in the iron and coal districts the aspect is not so encouraging. Parliament was ordered to be prorogued from 21st December till 3rd February, when it would meet for the despatch of business. The Queen Dowager is so far recovered as to sit up from eight to ten hours every day, and without assistance to walk about her room. The following is from the government Gazette : Whitehall, Dec. 4, 1841. — The Queen has been pleased to order letters patent to be passed under the great seal, for creating H. R.

A FABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 April 1842

A FABLE. My fable is concerning the cuckoo and the lark Upon a tree as they were sitting, They fell into a warm dispute (Warmer than was fitting) Which was the better flute. After much prating And debating, Not worth relating, Things camne to such a pass, That both agree To take an ass For referee. Tie ass Was studying botany and grass Under a tree. " Why," says the ass, "the question Is not hard ;"' And thus he made an excellent award:-= " Tile lark (says lie) As you shall sea Has got a wild fantastic pipe,. But no more music than a snipe. It gives one pain; ; It turns one's brain One can't keep time to such a strain. WhIereas the cuckoo's note Is measured and composed with thought His metllod is distinct and clear, And dwells like bells uivon the ear. I can distinguish too, I'11 lay a wager, His manner and expression Froim every forester and cager Of the profession." Tlhus ended the dispute. Tie cuckoo was quite mute WVithl admiration; I The lark stood laughing at the brute Affect...

The Zuid Afrikaan of 4th January, says — " The publication of the colonial records was still exciting attention ; 36 numbers have been published, 84 more would com- plete the work. The estimated expence, £2,100, is solicited from the Government." The inhabitants of Swellendam, had sub- scribed liberally for the establishment and maintenance of five new elementary schools in the district.

SYDNEY. WE have Sydney papers to the 31st 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 Balmain, 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 of course entirely by voluntary contributions. We have also becn 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. In short, the ap- peal to the people, on the part of Dr. Lang and his friends, has been warmly responded to ; and the example set by the congregation of the Scots church, in dispensing with state support, promises to be extensively followed — at all events in the Presbyterian communion.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. USE, versus ABUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 April 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. USE, versus ABUSE. MR EDITOR. —" There is a distinction between use and abuse," are your words when expressing your dissent from teetotal principles. Similar phraseology has of late been much in vague ; and not perceiving the soundness of the objection in this case, I gladly avail myself of your   kind 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 does the abuse 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 and nourishing sub-   stances are put into it ? and abused when the con- trary takes place ? Alcohol, or...

INDIAN. We gather the following from the Calcutta Englishman of 17th December :— AFFGHANISTAN. — A war rages between the British, in combination with Shah Shoojah's troops, and the Sha's rebellious subjects, the latter under the command of a number of plundering chief- tains, whose allegiance had hitherto been pur- chased. The town of Cabal had risen against Shah Shoojah on the 2nd November, the day Sir William M'Naghten had fixed for leaving it for his new government of Bombay. Both had been shut up in a fortified palace commanding the town ; the troops were entrenched, actions had been fought, and murders committed. " From that date to the 18th November we find there had been actions and sorties, with the fol- lowing personal results, but without altering the complexion of affairs for the better :— Sir Alexan- der Burnes, assistant to the envoy ; Lieut. Burnes, Bombay army ; Capt. Swayne, H. M. 44th regt. ; Capt. Robinson, ditto ; Lieut. Raban, ditto ; En- sign Salisbury, European...
