ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 7 May 1842

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. The Limerick passage ships have been peculiarly unfortunate this season. It was only in May last, that we had to record the loss of the Minstrel from that port, with about 160 passengers, when 137 of them, with 11 of the crew, unfortunately perished. Quebec Gazette, October 4. THE NAVY. — A great deal of uncalled for apprehension has been excited by the accounts furnished by the newspapers of our respective ports, of the bustle and ac- tivity which are said to prevail in the royal dock-yards ; and an inference has been deduced therefrom which has no founda- tion in fact. During the last few days, we have seen paragraphs in the newspapers to which we refer, headed " Increase of the British navy," which have recorded nothing but the preparation of those ships which have been called into requisition by the late wholesale appointments of' Lord Minto, and the repair of vessels destined to supply the place of those whose terms of service have expired.

THE STORY OF THE OLD WOLF. (Translated from the German.) CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 7 May 1842

THE STORY OF THE OLD WOLF. (Translated from the German.) CHAPTER I. Sir Isegrim, the wolf, wag grown old. The years that had panssed over his head, too, had brought with them changes hardly to be expected In a wolf at any season of life. All his fierceness and forocity were gone; he was no longer tile slayer of sheep and terror of shepherds: no, he had lost his teeth, and was now a philosopher. To superficial observers, perhaps, the alteration in his character might not have been very obvious, but he himself knew thatlhe was no more what he had been--that his lnpuline prowess had departed from him. He resolved accordingly on showing mankind what a reformation Ilad overtaken him. " One of my brethren," says he, " once assumed the garb of a lamb, but he was still a wolf at heart. I reverse the fable ; I seem outwardly a wolf,; but at heart I am a lamb. Appearances are deceptive ; whatever prejudices may le excited against mne by my exterior, with which I was born, and for which I ami ...

TEETOTAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 7 May 1842

TEETOTAL SOCIETY. The courteous notice furnished us by our teetotal townsmen of their intention to ex amine the .Exraminer entitles them to our gratitude. But the field of oral debate is not always tenable by a journalist; and we freely confess our reluctance to hazard our reputation in contending with a practised disputant. We think, however, that wea pons selected from a detractor's armoury were unbecoming the champion who wielded them. lHow easily might the charge of interested motives be retorted. We assure a him that our approbation of " Samaritan," a though qualified, was sincere. There is , melody in the name; and the office it ex- j presses, threatened as we are with missiles t from nall quarters, we are not in a condition to despise. r We are not conscious of escaping from arguments by dexterity, or of answering t them with sophistry: whatever our opi- I nions are worth, they have been deliber ately formed and candidly expressed. The suppression of intemperance-the object t...

THE DISTRESS IN LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 7 May 1842

THE DISTRESS IN LAUNCESTON. THE following we extract from the Re view : At Launceston the distress is felt with unnmti. gated severity. The following is an extract of a letter from a highly respectable inhabitant of the northern metropolis :-"It is impossible to de scribe the depressed state in which everything is here. We were bad enough twelve months ago, but now our condition is infinitely worse ; and It is really wonderfiul how a great proportion of the inhabitants exist. Talk of want of labour indeed I want of bread would he a much snore accurate de scription of the wants of the great majority." We hope that investigation will not sus tain this picture of local distress. -It can scarcely be believed that the majority of our townsmen are languishing for bread. But the statement demands imnmediate in quiry; and if in any degree correct, a vigorous movement to implart relief. There is still enough charity and wealth to pre serve the poor from starvation; there are still many in th...
