ECCENTRIC TALES. CHAPTER I.—THE MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 29 March 1830

ECCENTRIC TALES. CHAPTER 1.— THE MAN. Karel Pictreht was an honest round little nun, sedentary aud phlegmatic, pensive and patient, fallowing the respectable and profit able trade of breeches-maker, in the town of—-—, iu the porvince of ? , His face was the index el his mind, there being nothing very remarkable or sagacious in it. A ioke or a witticism was as foreign to his' understanding as to his utterance ; for lie could neither take nor (jive— always measuring his periods and clipping his words with the same exactness he did his cloth. In his gait there was neither gentility nor firmness ; far his legs, smalt and slender, in proportion to his bulk, being rather incli ned to bow, occasioned him to waddle and trundle aloni;, to the great diversion and mockery of .-very little scapegrace in the town. Dot the breeches-maker was a man of too much solidity to be removed by a tri- , fle I and although he never laugh»d at their derision, or indeed at any thing else, in the whole course ...

LAUNCESTON ADVERTISER. MONDAY, MARCH 29, 1830. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 29 March 1830

LAUNCESTON ADVERTISER. MONDAY, MARCH 29, 1830. It is the public duty of a Journalist to dispel delusion; but in the discharge of this duty he must not expect to find Ms road perfectly free from the arrows of those who are interested in preventing the jEgis of truth from confronting and dissipating their power. We perceive by an article which we lost week copied from the Australian, that Ireland and the county of Corn wall, in some re?p«cts resemble each other, Ireland is taxed heavily, and the half of those taxes levied in that im poverished country arc swallowed up by England. Launceston in like man ner, only far heavier, is taxed* and, only comider for a moment, what a {treat and grievous injury must result to the whole of the people collectively, when they find that a half of the taxes levied upon them are fully sufficient to pay for all the colonial salaries, appoint ments, and contingencies, and that the other half— oh, most humbling and bitter consideration, instead «f being l...
