ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 April 1842

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. LEGAL PUGILISM. — The chancery bar has been lately occupied with a question relating to a patent for pins' heads. The costs are estimated at £5000. The lawyers are the best boxers after all. Only let them get a head in chancery, even a pin's, and see how they make the proprietor bleed. — Bell's New Weekly Messenger. THE TOWER OF LONDON. — There is no re- corded time when the Tower of London was first erected. The precise date of its foundation is a point which the silence of authentic history leaves to the conjecture of the antiquary. It is gene- rally supposed, however, to have been built about the time of Constantine the Great, and that it owed its foundation to the Romans ; at all events, there is ground to believe that its site was once occupied by a Roman fortification. King Stephen was the first of our monarchs who made it a royal residence. SUSPENSION FOOT-BRIDGE ACROSS THE THAMES. — A sale took place in November of the extensive workshops and other erec- ti...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 April 1842

CHINA. The encroachments of the Seikhs upon the Celestial 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 Pckin. 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. By the latest accounts, Zorawar Singh continued to advance into Thibet, driving the armed and unarmed inhabitants before him, like sheep. He is now on the eastern side of the Munzorawar Lake, and having driven out the Deb and his forces, has...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. Launceston, April 28, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 April 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. Launceston, April 28, 1842. SIR. — On Saturday last I forwarded a letter (of which the annexed is a copy) to the editor of the Advertiser, which he has declined publishing, or noticing the receipt of. I beg respectfully to submit it to your notice, if you deem it worthy of insertion in the Examiner. SIR, — Teetotallers are justified in advancing all fair arguments in order to prove the necessity of total abstinence ; and therefore no one can com- plain if, whilst they advocate the general principle, individual injury should ensue : but if, leaving the high ground of public weal, they retire to the untenable fastnesses of detraction and slander, and from thence discharge their poisoned arrows at the reputation of their neighbours, that part of the community, whether rational or not, which remembers and admits the obligation of the sacred injunction " Whatever ye would that men should do to you, do you even so to them," will pause before they ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 April 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR. — Your remarks on the sublject of my former communication, affect me deeply. Im- mense interests are at stake. Convinced as I am of your honesty of purpose, and fair dealing with the truth, I venture again to crave a place in your columns. " Facts are stubborn things." Under what system have so many hundred thousands of drunk- ards made their appearance ? most assuredly, un- der the system for which you plead ; i. e. — moderation. Permit me to say, that your princi- ples have for ages had a fair field for exertion, but the swelling tide of intemperance has continually swept away the feeble resistance you could oppose to it. And now look at the doings of total absti- nence ; it has breasted the torrent, driven it back in many places and dried up its source, to the as- tonishment even of moderation men. Thousands of the most confirmed drunkards, cast out by you, and pronounced incurable,''" are now safe and sound ; America sings for joy —...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 April 1842

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. The members of the Mechanics' Institute met last Tuesday, in the Infant School Room, at six o'clock — W. H Breton, Esq., in the chair. Mr. Joseph De Little read a report of the pro- ceedings of the provisional committee. They had secured the school-room in Cameron-street for the present purposes of the institute — arranged a course of lectures for the season — and received donations of books from various members. They had also prepared a draft of the rules and regu- lations of the society, which Mr. Connor read, and which are to be submitted to the members on the 10th of May for approval or amendment. Dr. Paton suggested that for " misconduct" " wilfil breach of any of the rules of the society" ought to be substituted, as he considered it unwise to leave the interpretation of the word " miscon- duct" to the permanent board. The chairman invited any other suggestion in relation to the rules, but none were brought forward. The amount of subscription was then ment...
