LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 7 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, been 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. 0d. 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 ...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 7 May 1842

SYDNEY.   FLOUR. — There has been a considerable stir in this market during the week, and purchases have been made to some extent for exportation. The quantity exported from this port to New Zealand, has been upwards of 250 tons within the last month. This drain on our stock, together with our consumption, must soon tell on our market.   The prices at the mills remain firm at our former quotations, namely — Fine, 20s. to 21s. ; seconds, 17s. to 18s. ; ration, 15s. to 16s. ; bran, 1s. 8d. to 1s. 10d. ; No. 1 biscuit, 26s. ; No. 2 dlitto, 21s. WHEAT. — The supply from the country by drays and by coasting vessels continues, and fair prices have been obtained for good samples : the greater part of the wheat is, however, much eaten out by fly and by weevil, and unless that which is now in stack is soon thrashed out and brought to market, the grower will suffer a considerabtle loss. The prices at the mills have ranged during the week from 5s, to 7s. per bushel ; ...

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, was grown old. The years that had passed 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 ferocity were gone ; he was no longer the 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 that he was no more what he had been — that his lupuline prowess had departed from him. He resolved accordingly on showing mankind what a reformation had 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 be excited agailst me by my exterior, with which I was born, and for which I aim no...

REGICIDE CLUB. — Some extraordinary revelations are expected to result from the trial of Quinesset, the fellow who attempted to shoot the French princes some time since. It is said that it will be clearly established that there is a regicide club having extensive ramifications, in existence. SHIPWRECK — Forty-one lives lost. — In the Gazette of Friday last, we informed our readers that Captain Buchanan, of the ship Scotland, had seen, off Metis, a ship on shore, which to all appearance was a total wreck. Yesterday that report was received in a letter, by Messrs. W. Price and Co., of this city, from which we have been favoured with the following extract : " Metis, September 29. " I have to inform you of the loss of the barque Amanda, Captain Davis, from Limerick, which came ashore at Little Metis Point, at 5 o'clock on the 26th inst. She had forty passengers, and a crew of eighteen. The captain, two seamen, and two apprentices were amongst those saved." — Quebec Gazettc, October 4.
