No Title [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 April 1842

From last week's second edition. A man named John Clarke, a tinman in Col- lins-street, Hobart Town, cut his throat with a razor while labouring under a temporary fit of insanity. W. Olney, a private belonging to the 51st regt., shot himself last Tuesday, in consequence of being told that he would not obtain his discharge, as he had, without his major's consent, been asked in church with a female to whom he had been en- gaged. By the brig Dorset, from Adelaide, a runaway convict constable Armytage has been brought up, for whose apprehension a reward of £200 and a free pardon is offered In the Van Diemen's Land Gazette. — Courier. By the latest accounts from his Excellency and Lady Franklin, they had reached the Frenchman's Cap or Peak of Teneriffe, within sight of Mac- quarie Harbour. They had borne the fatigues of their toilsome journey with unimpaired health and spirits.

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, April 23, 1842. AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 April 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, April 23, 1842. AGRICULTURE. THE 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 effected. 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 the notion is injurious, because it is pernicious. When intercourse with Europe was less frequent, the population of surrounding colonies small, and the cost of manufactured goods much greater, a price enormously high and dangerously fluctuating might sometimes occur ; but the increa...

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

TEETOTALISM. WE cheerfully insert the able and temperate letter of our country correspondent. His arguments have not disturbed our opinions already recorded. The line between use and abuse may not be easily perceptible, any more than that of the equator; but its existence is equally indisputable. The distinction is clearly recognised in every system of morals, nor can a single teeto taller pass through the world without some times appealing to it as his warrant and his guide. In this case he may be unable to discover the proper pause between a gill and butt; yet the vast majority of English men demonstrate by their habits of sobri ety that they have dropped upon it by accident, or discovered it by reason. Whether fermented drinks are, or are not wholesome, experience alone can deter mine. We have sometimes imagined that the total abstinence advocates have as sumed their conclusions on questionable criteria. Medical opinions are entitled to great weight in the consideration of the qu...

THE INSOLVENT LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 April 1842

THE INSOLVENT LAW. THE 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 at once. What is an oath to a robber, and what is disgrace to a swin- dler ? 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 facility, laugh at his creditors, bow to the commissioner, and w...
