AGRICULTURE. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 April 1842
AGRICULTURE. &nbsp; From a Lecture by Mr. John Wells. (Continued.) This might appear to a man unacquainted with &nbsp; farming to make no difference, but I am sure any &nbsp; man that has seen land cropped in 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 down by some men that, two corn or white crops should never be taken in succession, perhaps 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 in 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...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 23 April 1842
SYDNEY. In the papers to the 31st ultimo there is no alteration in the state of the markets ; our former quotations therefore stand. The markets generally continue in an improv- ing state, with an upward tendency in most arti- cles of good quality — inferior are quite neglected — although the amount of business done since our last has been limited, arising from the firmness of holders, who ask increased rates ; yet it is satis- factory to know that trade is progressing and con- fidence restored. GRAIN AND FLOUR. — These articles remain without any alteration ; a few tons of Chlilan have changed hands at £17 per ton. There is no alteration in the millers' prices. PROVISIONS. — Irish pork :— There has been somewhat more inquiry after sound samples, and the market for this description remains, though without any sales being effected : holders are now asking £3 15s. to £5 per barrel. American — of which there is in the market a new importation, ex St. Laurence, of excellent quality, equ...

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 came to such a pass, That both agree To take an ass For referee. The 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 :— " The lark (says he) As you shall see 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. Whereas the cuckoo's note Is measured and composed with thought ; His method is distinct and clear, And dwells like bells upon the ear. I can distinguish too, I'll lay a wager, His manner and expression From every forester and eager Of the profession." Thus ended the dispute. The cuckoo was quite mute With admiration ; The lark stood laughing at the brute Affecting so ...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 April 1842
CH IN A. The enecroachments of the Seikhs'upo! the :Colestial Empire still -'continue, and have indeed reached an extent likely to attract the attention of the Centre of the Universe,. if it be not altogether absorbed by the proceedings of the outer barbarians at Canton. For the present it may be, but Zorawar Singh and his victo riaus Seikhs, will hardly fail ere long to bring themselves distinctly enough to the notice of the court of Pekin. They are not to be turned from their course by the gloz ings of Commissioner Lin, the treachery of Keshen or the powers of Kwang, Lieut. General of the Chinese forces and cousin to the God of War. Defeat alone will tell upon them, a consideration from which our Canton chiefs might draw a very valuable inference. fBy the latest accounts, Zorawar Singh continued to advance into Thibet, driving the armed and unarmed inhabitants before him, like sheep. lie is now on the eastern side of the Munzorawar Lake, and having driven out the Deb and his force...
