THE CAMPBELL TOWN BALL AND CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 23 November 1840

THE CAMPBELL TOWN BALL AND CONCERT. Eheu fugaces ! Thirty years, ago Sir, I could join, in the sports of the field, and could participate in the -delights of a ball-room; but Time, the ruthless de stroyer of all things, has long since prostrated those energies from which the charms of a dance, or a hunt, are derived. Eheu fugaces/ what a delightful season is youth ! spirit and elasticity of soul, displayed by youth, with feelings of pleasure; it affords a soothing kind of me lancholy to the mind, as the images of bye-gone days pass fle'eting by. With these feelings, I attended the recent Ball at Campbell Town ; and, as upon all such occasions, the ladies form the principal attraction, I consider myself the most proper person to speak of them, and have, therefore, furnished you with a report of the proceedings. Age prevents me from exaggerating the beauty of any of the fair ladies, out of fear of being discarded, nor can my remarks, for the same reason, be prompted by jealousy or ill...

Wednesday last, at eleven o'clock iu the fore noon, was tbe lime appointed for settling the Jury List for this district; a difficulty however arose, in consequence of the chairman, P; A.

POLICE REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 23 November 1840

POLICE REPORT. The Government stores for the reception of drunkards have been almost entirely closed this week,— no business doing at all. Money market in a dreadful state, drunkards can't pay their fines, and so the constables won't apprehend them. It is observable that a depression in the spirits of the publicans, always has a contrary effect upon the spirits of the constabulary. On Friday, the monotony of the police court was en livened by a* very pathetic theatrical kind of exhibition, in the shape of a dialogue between Mrs. Bond and tbe police Magistrate. Mrs. Bond it would appear, by some means succeeded in getting her husband encarce rated in the body of the goal, and not satisfied with this, afterwards succeeded in getting a number of useful ar ticles of apparel, &c, &c, encarcerated in the body of a large box, which box went on board ship in company with herself, and both arrived together at Sydney. Some kind triend, however, whispered to Mrs. JJond that her...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, DECEMBER 7. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 7 December 1840

the lmnceston mmim, MONDAY, DECEMBER 7. The Essinglon arrived from Port Nicholson, on Monday last. This vessel brings us about fourteen emigrants, and amongst them several mechanics, who, after meeting with a variety of disappointments at New Zealand, abandoned the nlace in despair and disgust. The settle ment is represented to us as being in a most lamentable state, and the greatest dissatisfaction is said to prevail amongst the unfortunate kid napped emigrants. Induced by false and flat tering exaggerations to abandon their homes and their native country, they discover imme diately upon their arrival, the treachery and in humanity of their selfish deceivers. They find starvation where they had been led to expect abundance ; and discontent and distress, where they were told prosperity and comfort alone reigned ; they find it almost impossible to obtain a livelihood, where they were assured that wealth and independence would be their certain reward. There -is nothing more base and c...

THE AGRICULTURAL SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 7 December 1840

THE AGRICULTURAL SHOW. Tuesday last, was the day appointed for the Northern Agricultural Show, and early in the morning the whole town was in a bustle, in con sequence of the number of gentlemen arriving from different parts of the country. Bytwelye o'clock the stock was all penned, and the public were admitted upon payment oi one shilling each— subscribers of course having free admit tance. In consequence of the lateness of the season and the short notice given, the show of Cattle was not so numerous as was .by some ex pected ; gentlemen at this time of the year being too much engaged with harvesting and sheep shearing to admit of their bestowing much at tention upon any other subject. The principal attractions were some beautiful Leicester rams belonging to Mr. Field, imported from England, the wool upon which it was calculated would weigh from thirteen to fourteen pounds. Some beautiful stock, fed by David Gibson, Esq., of Snake Banks, was also much admired. Upwards of five hundr...

TO-MORROW. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 7 December 1840

TO-MORROW. Every heart beats light in expectation of the delights of ' to-morrow', the toiling man of business as he bustles through the streets in wardly ruminates on ' to-morrow', and the busy mechanic often ponders over his work to bestow a few thoughts on ' to-morrow'. Amongst the fair sex many a one whose thoughts are usually centred in only one dear object, now begins to think of ' to-morrow', and even the lazy sluggard as he crawls out of his bed, cries, yawning, ' Heigho ! how I wish this was to-morrow !' The pleasures of anticipation often surpass those of possession, but in this case we have little doubt that the enjoyment of the reality will fully equal the sweets of anticipation, however warm and enthusiastic they may be. The Regatta is a sort of annual dispensation from the formal restraints imposed upon us by custom and habit, it is a time when even the ladies are allowed to be merry without being thought ungenteel, and when the veriest: prude upon earth, might laugh a...

POLICE REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 7 December 1840

POLICE REPORT. A large influx of drunkards is expected on Wednesday, so that there is little occasion to bewail the present scar city. Felonies are very scarce, and one murder has been in the market for some weeks, and is not yet disposed of. The stocks remain stationary— there is nothing in teresting in the miscellaneous market. ?

Whilst from many a voice the loud anthem shall ring, All hail to Victoria, the Queen of the Isles !
