POETRY. IMAGINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 25 October 1841

POETRY1. '.-?-. IMAGINATION. Yes— from thy band, Imagination I flow Those lurid shades tbat darken every woe, The 'ettog which points Fate'n arrow as itfllei, The drop that festering in the bosom lies ; Each stormy Passion borrows strength from thee, Love s raging pang, -slow-rankling Jealousy, The deep-set springs of silent Agony. Ah 1 what avails it, guided by thy wand. To tread the pleasant ways of Fairyland, Awhile on Life's stern truths to close our eyes, And chase thy bright illusions as they rise, When Youth's strong pulse with love and hope beats high. And mists opaque veil dim Futurity ?? Comes not the fearful, waking start at4ast ? Vanished the rapture of the dreaming Fast ! Vanished thy halo's visionary, glqw. ' So melt resplendent shapes of frosted snow ; The brittle scene breaks up ; the living waters flow. Is it not better, then, with fixed, firm eye, To gaze upon the paths which onward lie, And lead us from the joyous hour of birth To that when we shall lay our heads ...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, OCTOBER 25. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 25 October 1841

THE UUMCESTQN COURIER. MONDAY, OCTOBER 25. On Thursday next, a second meeting of ma gistrates will be held to determine upon tbe . Jury Lists for the districts of Tjaunceston, Morveu, and George Town. With respect to me iwo lasi mentioned, a aimcuity uas arisen which affords another proof of the inexplica bility of some of our most important colonial enactments. It is clear that both lists cannot have been legally taken, and whatever may be the opinion of the law officers of the crown, as to what is the intention of the act, it trill be impossible to legalise both lists without intro ducing into the Council, an act for that especial purpose. A like occurrence took place in 1839, and what is most singular upon the very same point. The names were then taken alphabeti cally, instead of according to the distance at which the parties resided from the police office, as is prescribed by law. This was deejned a fatal objection to the legality of the list, and an Act of Council, was passed t...

ORXOUNAX. POETRY. LINES TO A FRIEND OH BIS BIRTHDAY. Mr much lov'd (Hend, the purport of my lay Ib to address tbee on thy natal day ; Four-and-twcnty years hare wing'd their rapid flight': ' Since thou wert usher'a to thy parent's sight ; As yet thy path in life has befen serene, For scarce a cloud has Him'd the glorious scene ; And as the sun before a storm appears. So joy will oft precede the falling tears. This let me wish, that as these years increase, In wisdom's way alone thou'lt seek for peace, The Bible make thy counsellor and friend, Regard its precepts, its reproofs attend j There true humility thou'lt find portrayed, And faith and hope in simplest garb array'd ; There for the guidance of thy Saviour seek, He rests the weary and restores the weak ; Safely he'll lead thee through this wandering state, And bring thy ransom'd soul to Zion's gate ; Thy prayer to him each night and morning send, And with submission on his power depend ; Declare thy wants, and all thy mercies tr...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 1. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 1 November 1841

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 1. We have carefully waded through the lengthy correspondence published in the Van Die men s Land Chronicle, relative to the causes which led to the abrupt suspension of Captain Cheyne from office. Much as we are opposed to the general administration of tbe affairs of the department, over which he was the head, and although we are inclined to think, that his removal will prove conducive to the public wel fare, we are nevertheless bound in candour to express our opinion, that the correspondence to which we arc alluding, does not substantiate a single charge against Captain Cheyne,. of suf ficient magnitude to merit such a punishment. On the contrary, every -charge which is pre ferred against him, is manfully and (satisfactorily refuted, even to the minutest detail. The bit terest enemy of Captain Cheyne will admire the tone of his communications, and com menced the honesty of intention, which they manifest ; he shrinks from no explanation, tha...

QUARTER SESSIONS—JURY LIST. THURSDAY, October 28. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 1 November 1841

QUARTER SESSIONS— JURY LIST. Thursday, October 28. Pursuant to adjournment, the Magistrates assembled this morning, to determine upon the Jury Lists for the District of Launceston, and the sub-districts of Morven and George Town. The Chairman opened the proceedings by stating that in consequence of what occurred at tbe former meeting, he had addressed a letter to the Law-officers of the Crown, to ascertain whether either, or both, of the lists for the Morven aud George Toown districts were valid, and whether they could be legally attached to, or incorporated with the Launceston list. The following letter, and reply thereto were then read by the Clerk of the Peace. [We expected to have been enabled to insert here, the letters alluded to, but have been refused the copies which we requested. It is difficult to assign any reason for wicholding from the public, documents purely of a public nature, nor can we account for the unusual discourtesy which this refusal displays.
