MONEY MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 April 1842

MONEY MARKET. THE reduction of Bank Interest at Ho-   bart Town to 8 per cent. is an indication of a more healthy condition in the mone- tary affairs of the colony. The incum- brance of mortgages and loans, and the high price of bank accommodation, have weighed down the impoverished settler and trader, and oppressed them with an iron hand. We are not disposed to join in the outcry against capitalists, who, like all other members of the community, are swayed chiefly by considerations of their own interest, and justly feel themselves warranted in acquiring the largest returns they can procure. The regulation of in- terest by law is a scheme which, after ages of experience, the British legislature has finally abandoned as useless. Money, not less than corn, is a marketable commodity, and its value must fluctuate with the fluc- tuations of commerce and agriculture ; and although time may be required to adjust the scale of profit due to the lender, it must ultimately find it...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, April 23, 1842. PORT PHILLIP—JUDGE WILLIS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 April 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER,     Saturday, April 23, 1842. PORT PHILLIP — JUDGE WILLIS. MR. ARDEN has been liberated by the resident judge. The collision of his Honor   with a portion of the press, has divided the inhabitants of Melbourne, and drawn all eyes to Port Phillip. We have hitherto expressed no opinion on the colduct and position of the parties in this extraordinary affair ; but we have been attentive specta- tors of the contest, and now nothing is wanting save the arbitration of govern- ment, we may avow our conviction that neither side has room for exultation, or pretensions to applause. If under the privilege of friendship, we were addressing his Honor of Port Phillip, we should de- lineate the proper character, and dwell on the real dignity of a British judge. We should assure him, that the cherished feelings of Englishmen which have invested the bench with sacredness, are the uncor- ruptible guard of those who adorn it. We might then rem...

SUPREME COURT—HOBART TOWN. TUESDAY, APRIL 10. Before His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 30 April 1842

SUPREME COURT — HOBART TOWN. TUESDAY, APRIL 19. Before His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu. John Berry was charged with stealing on the the 18th February last, a great number of very valuable surgical instruments, the property of Dr. Valentine, and Fortune Guillois with feloniously receiving five ounces of silver, being a portion of the stolen property. The jury found both prisoners guilty — when his Honor sentenced Berry to be transported for seven years, and Guillois for fourteen ; he lectured the latter severely upon his conduct as a notorious dealer in stolen property, and stated that his convic- tion was a general benefit to the commu- nity ; he would take care that he should pass six or seven years at Port Arthur. Richard Hall was acquitted on a charge of receiving three volumes of Shakspeare's plays, the property of Mr. Thomas Atkin- son, of New Norfolk. Nathaniel Harding was indicted for a burglary in the house of Mr. G. Smith (the Scotch Thistle) on the 22nd February, and for ste...

AGUICULTURE. From a Leclure by Mr.. John Wells. (Continued.) But in this, I think you will agree with me, that it would be desirable if landowners and their agents, instead of repairing the old miserable buildings we seeplaced one on this 111hill and another on that, would have a plan, and as the old build ings full into decay, build in a proper place accord ing to that plan, so as in the course of time, and without incurring any additional expense, con venient flrm buihlings might he seen on all fhrms. The action of manure upon the soil is commonly expressed by saying that it fortilizes the land, and that is generally deemed sufticiently intelligible to conmmon comprehension ; still it is of great illm portance to both the theory and the practice of agriculture, to know and distinguish the properties and the mode of application by which the different kinds of manure are made productive; and it is only by means of an acquaintance with their com position, that we can fiormn any safe ...

SYDNEY. WHEAT. — There has been a considerable quan- tity of wheat brought to market during the week, and fair prices have been obtained.
