TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. The Loan System. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 24 January 1842

TO THE EDJTOlt OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. The Xtoan System. SIR, Scarcely a twelve month has elapsed since we were told this monstrous abuse was effectually done a way with . The urgent reputed necessities nf the settlers to get in their harvest, however still affords an opportunity for dispensing the crumbs of patronage, and which oppor tunity is greedily seized on by many of those to whom Mow the main objection to any furtherance of this remnant of the loan system, is, that no plausible neces sity exists for it ; that their is abundance of labour, and that the crops have not been advanced to maturity so rapidly as to call for inordinate expedition in getting them in. Bad in itself, its' corruption is made more manifest by the shameful partiality with which the men are distributed, and the manner in which their labour when temporarily assigned is employed: of every ten men lent for the present harvest, not more than six have been employed for that legitimate purpose. 1 know of seve...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON C0U1UEK.

Butter is also said some times to be used in its manufacture. The rennet is then added without any colouring ; and when the curd has formed it is taken out without being broken, and put the whole into a sieve or drainer. In the drainer it is pressed with weights until all the whey is extracted, and when dry put into a hooped ches scl. The outer coal being salted, it is tben put into tbe press, and when sufficiently firm it is taken out of tbe chessel, and bound lightly in a cloth This cloth is changed every day until the cbeese is...

Editor, In your reference to tbe case of an individual who was fined Ten Pounds, on Friday the 13th inBtant, at the Police, for an unintentional breach of -the act for the 'prevention of sheep and cattle-stealing,' it appears 10 me, that you loose sight of one strong feature in the case bearing upon the conduct of the informer who evidently carea more auout oDiainmg a moiety ot tne fine incurred, than he did in doing bisJuty, to ascertain whether a felony had not also been committed ; .surely as head of the constabulary force of the town, tie 'ought to set a better example to those beneath him. Did he after ascertaining that the sheep in question had not been inspected, detain it until the person upon whom he found it, satisfactorily accounted for its possession ?
