AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

AGRICULTURE. The important interests of agriculture will re- ceive our constant attention. If Van Diemen's Land is to be a corn growing country, and to sup- ply the Australasian colonies when their own pro- duce is deficient, it must be by successful competi- tion with American and Indian growers ; there can be no doubt that the fine quality of Van Diemen's Land wheat will secure it precedence, unless its high price should induce regular importations from other countries. In the early stage of the colony when labour was more costly and land less valuable, a loose method of cultivation might yield the largest immediate profit ; but now it is important that the farmer should improve the practice of agriculture by fol- lowing out the principles recognised by occupiers of the best corn districts of Great Britain ; and in this way, by continued steady production, in- sure a profitable return upon his capital. Exces- sively high prices are always dangerous ; the secu- rity of the colonial...

THE HOBART TOWN GAZETTE. Friday, March 4, 1842. PRINCIPAL SUPERINTENDENT'S DEPARTMENT. March 1st, 1842. NOTICE. — The Principal Superintendent begs to notify, that in consequence of the great de- crease in the number of male convicts available for assignment, and with a view of carrying out the instructions of the Secretary of State, as well as to afford a more equitable distribution of their services, His Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor has directed that no more men shall be assigned to individuals who already have to the number of fifteen convicts in their service. The Principal Superintendent, in publishing this for general information, begs at the same time to state, that in all applications for servants it will be absolutely necessary that the number of as- signed servants which the applicant shall at that time possess, together with the extent of his land in cultivation, shall be stated, and also that no at- tention will be given to communications on the subject unless they...

HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

HOBART TOWN. We are happy to find that the agriculturists and the wheat holders in general have had the discre- tion to avoid falling into former errors. They have not taken advantage of the Sydney demand to keep back their grain or to raise the price. We are satisfied that this is the best method of keep- ing the market, producing as Van Diemen's Land is allowed to do, the finest grain in the world, and at a price which, all expenses considered, is little greater at present than the cost of purchasing from America. The prices are as follow :— Wheat, per bushel, 8s.; flour, fine, 20s. — seconds, 18s per cwt.. English barley, 6s. ; Cape ditto, 5s. ; oats, 5s. 6d. ; maize, 5s. ; hay, £5 per ton ; straw, £3 ; potatoes, 8s. ; Port Arthur coal, per ton, 20s. delivered ; she oak, 14s.? gum, 10s. — Murray's Review. Return of Grain and Flour exported from the port of Hobart Town, during the week ending 1st March, 1842, inclusive — Flour, 250 barrels ; ditto, 14 tons. Return of Grain and Flo...

LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

LAUNCESTON. WHEAT. — A slight advance in price has taken place, although the market is not brisk ; sales have been made at 7s. 6d. to 8s. a bushel during the week. Perhaps the tenders advertised by the government may have had an influence on the price. Growers ought to take advantage of a temporary rise to quit a portion at least of their crops. It will be for their immediate as well as future advantage to meet the demand, at a remu- nerating rate. The foreigner will thereby be ex- cluded and a market secured for wheat of colo- nial growth. The state of the Sydney market is encouraging, but too much reliance ought not to be placed on its permanence. It is difficult to come to a decision on the proba- ble price of wheat in the course of the season, but we submit the following as we believe to be correct data on which an opinion may be formed. The crops of wheat and maize in New South Wales have been deficient ; in the southern portion of this island the harvest has not yielded an ave...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

SYDNEY. Pork, 60s. per barrel ; hams, 7d. per lb. ; hyson skin tea, £9 to £10 per chest ; sugar, £30 to £35 per ton ; tobacco 8½d. to 10d. per lb. ; B. P. rum, 10d. ; O. P. ditto, 3s 3d. ; foreign ditto, 1s, 2d. per gallon ; case gin, 12s. 6d. to 14s. ; pale ale, 2s. 6d. per gallon ; brandy, 4s. ditto ; arrack, 11s. ditto ; bottled beer and ale, 11s. per dozen ; Dun- bar's scarce ; soap, £29 to £35 per ton. The grain market is on the rise. The millers still exercise an infllence over the prices that is not desirable. The price of line flout at the mills was £20 to £21 ; seconds, £17 to £18 per ton. Wheat may be quoted at 8s. to 10s., with the pros- pect of an advance. The grain held by the government onl 1st Feb.   was 39,014 bushels wheat, and 12,910 maize.

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, March 12, 1342. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, March 12, 1842. The barque Richard Webb, arrived at Hobart Town from Dublin 15th November, brings the pleasing intelligence of the birth of a Prince of Wales on the 9th. Her Majesty and royal offspring were in excel- lent health. IN proposing the establishment of another journal in Van Diemen's Land it may be proper to state its principles and delineate its plan ; more than this would be superflu- ous : to apologise would be mere affectation ; we expect — we ask no favour, unless our exertions to instruct and please appear to deserve it. A strong and general impression exists that the multifarious interests, increased population, and advancing influence of this town and neighbourhood, demand the establishment of an additional newspaper : having aspired to fill the acknowledged va- cancy, we are resolved to maintain our po- sition with spirit and resolution, to win the confidence a new undertaking can hardly be expected to command, and, while look- ing ...

SUPREME COURT, HOBART TOWN. SITTINGS IN BANCO. I[?]es v. Muchall. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

SUPREME COURT, HOBART TOWN.   SITTINGS IN BANCO. Ives v. Muchall. In this case the Chief Justice said he very much regretted that the Court had not agreed. It was however his duty to state his reasons for thinking that the rule for a new trial should be made absolute. Having stated the nature of the action, his Honor proceeded to observe that it was not his in- tention to review the whole of the law, as cited at the bar. He would admit, at the outset, that where credit was originally given to a married woman living apart from her husband, it was the duty of the husband — the onus was upon him — to shew under what circumstances that credit was given to the wife. He admitted also that the hus- band cannot be said in law to be a contracting party, unless his assent he given to the con- tract, or that it can from his conduct be im- plied. In this case, however, it did not ap- pear under what circumstances the wife had separated from the husband ; and had the case stopped th...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. A MEETING was held last Tuesday, at the In- fant School Room, for the purpose of forming a Mechanics' Institute in this town. The large attendance evinced the laudable desire that exists among mechanics for the establishment of such an institution. Mr. Breton, the Police Magistrate, presided. He referred with pleasure to the appearance the meeting presented ; stated the facilities there were   for forming a library, museum, &c., and that the colonial government would doubtless assist, by pecuniary aid, the efforts of the people themselves. The Rev. Charles Price briefly laid before the meeting the principles and objects of mechanics' institutes ; although theology was peculiarly his province, yet as a minister, as well as a citizen, he felt it his duty to promote the object in view by every means in his power. Mr. W. Henty moved the first resolution — " That this meeting deems it extremely desirable that a Mechanics' Institute should be est...
