POETRY. THE HOURS I SPENT WITH THEE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 22 November 1841

POETRY. THE HOURS I EFENT WITH THFE. The faded leaves were falling fast, . When Srst that eve's bright ray ; A radiance o'er this spirit cast, Which hath not pass'd away ' For like a star beam from the sky, It lights my soul to see Those blissful hours of days gone by, Those hours 1 spent with thee. How many know a dark regret To think how moments fleet, Since those who could be blest when met In life so seldom meet ; But thus tlio' darkness gathers o'er The thoughts that else were free. Still, still 'tis but to brighten more Those hours I spent with thee. Still fortune round that heart of thine Shall its fair charms unfold, And all its smiles arc dark to mine, And all its shadows cold ; But life shall all prove colder yet, And darker fortune be, Ere memory's hallowed power forget Those hours 1 spent with thee.

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 22. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 22 November 1841

THE LAUNCESTQN COURIER. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 22. The report of the Committee upon emigration, recently published is an important document. The Committee have taken a very proper view of the question, and treat it in a ma-terly and argumentative manner, not confining them selves simply, to the actual condition and neces sities of the Colony at the present time, but extending their enquiries to the probable demands of future years. It is bjr (ar the most creditable report that ever emanated from a Committee of the Legislative Council. The report commences by enumerating the evils arising from a deficiency of labour, tbe rate of wages being too hi.--;b to admit of the employer receiving a fair share of profits. The consequences are briefly summed up in — the loss of the best seasons, — the bad manner in which the crops are got in— the dcmineralinn in the quantity intended to lie sewn — the land being imperfectly' worked — and attempts at im proving husbandry being discouraged. The average ...

THE UUKCESTON GOURfXi, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 29. It is not generally lenown, that a Branch of the Australasian Life Assurance, and Annuity Company, has been recently-established in this town, of which Messrs. Gleadow and Henty, are the Agents, and Dr Pouter, the Medical referee. The Capital of the Conmanv is £200,000, and the principle upon which it is founded, differs in :_no . material respect from other 'Companies of the same description. The leading features, as set forth in their .pospeclus, are, participation in the profits, and lower rates of premium than those of most Societies which do not give profits to the assured. The Di rectors, with a view of accomplishing these ob jects hare resolved upon retaining in England sufficient funds to meet all probable demands, and investing the remainder in the various Colonial Banks, and in Mortgage. This mode of in vesting capital the Directors represent as liav ing numerous advantages over the English funds, being as secure and safe as poss...
