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 accomnmodation, 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 comnerce and agriculture; and although time may be required to adjust the scale of profit due to the lender, it must ultimately find its proper level.

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 Guallois with feloniously receiving five ounces of silver, being a portion of the stolen piroperty.

LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 4 May 1842

LAUNCESTON. WHEAT. — We have merely to give our former quotation — 6s. per bushel. Upon the whole, the market is firmer, and there is a slight tendency to advance. Exportation, to a limited extent, continues ; but the latest sales at Sydney are dis- heartening, and have entailed considerable loss on the shippers. The best sample of wheat we have ever seen in the island has, in the course of the week, beetn sold at 9s. and 10s. per bushel in small quantities, for seed ; it is the produce of imported seed, and was grown in the neighbourhood of Launceston. BARLEY — English, from 5s. 6d. to 6s. per bushel ; Cape, 4s. 6d. ditto. OATS — feed, 4s. per bushel ; for seed, 5s. 6d. ditto. FLOUR — first quality, £18 ; second, £16 ; third, £14 per 2000lbs. We are glad to find that a de- mand for this article has sprung up. The South Australians are in want of a small supply, and we have reason to believe that they having nearly used all their own produce will, for the remainder of the year, take...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 7 May 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. Stn.-.Your correspondent " S:amaritan" comes forward generally in such a candid liberal manner, int his letters on teetotalism, so far as he urges that practice on the score of expediency and special utility, that one feels regret at being obliged to differ with himi when lie is led to adopt the lax ness of scripture interpretation, too general among the total-abstinence advocates. There are, I know, many practical teetotallers-men who ad vocate that cause with great ability and sincerity -who revolt at the perversion of scripture often resorted to, in order to hear out the proposition that fermented liquors are unlawfil, aind that it is sinful to partake of them. Your correspondent in his zeal for the " cause" appears to me in his references to have taken the letter and not the spirit. I shall not go back to his antideluvian references, further than to remark that if teeto talismn then held sway it hIis left an imperishable memorial of its ...

The undersigned, landowners and other inhabitants of the district of New Norfolk, having heard with tmuch regret that your Excel lency has given positive orders to enforce the collection of the quit-rents, beg to unite in request ing your Excellency's serious attention to certain obligations connected with those claims existing on the part of the government, which, apparently have been overlooked, though in justice they cannot be separated, but require full and equal consideration before payment can be reasonably or ftirly demanded. 2.

THE DOCTRINE OF TOTAL ABSTI NENCE. (To the Editor of the BrIstol Temperance Herald.) Birmingham, February 2nd, 1841. Mv D~:AR Si8,--I am obliged to you for sending the copies of your IHerald, which contain your views of the "Wine Question," as it is called, tested by scripture. As a real friend to the cause of total ab stinence, I am grieved to heal' and read, from time to time, the rash and perilous assertions of some of its most zealous, but in my opinion, least judicious advocates. Engaged in the desperate attempt to prove bothl from the Old and New Testaments, that no sanction has ever been given, even for tile occasional and moderate use of any kind of alcoholic drinks, they hazard all kinds of unauthorised criticisms) some of them approaching to what is irreverend, and semi-infidel, and accompanied with much that is offensively dogmatical, to get rid of evidence which stands in the ?ay of their hypothesis. By this means, they shock the judgments and the fielings of' many who a...
