LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 11 May 1842
LAUNCESTON. WHEAT. — The prices range from 5s. 9d. to 6s. 9d. per bushel, according to the sample and credit. Purchases are now made more freely at 6s. than they were some weeks ago ; domestic consumption and exportation are gradually re- ducing the stocks : and, on this account, there is a slight indication of an advance in price. The experience of the last two years, we are however sure, will not he lost on the growers. Their plan is to meet the demand at a remunerating rate ; not to hold for exhorbitant prices ; which can never exist for a long period, and must ultimately be productive of injury to the farmer. When the price of wheat is above 8s, per bushel, foreign supplies will undoubtedly reach us. 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.

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 11 May 1842
SYDNEY. During the week the greatest tranquility has prevailed in the commercial markets, and business has been limited, arising from the inclement state of the weather ; the alterations have been but few. TEA has declined, and may now he quoted at £6 per chest, without any large sales being effected. SUGAR. — The cargo ex Caroline, has changed hands, but the figure has not transpired ; the holders of the cargo ex Fair Barbadian are ask- &nbsp; ing £55 per ton. The lowest figure at which this article is now to be purchased is £30. In other articles there is no alteration. WHEAT. — This market has been without any supplies from the country during the week. Price — 5s. 6d. to 6s. 6d. per bushel. FLOUR. — The business done in this market has been but small, in consequence of the inclemency of the weather.

SUPREME COURT, HOBART TOWN SITTINGS IN BANCO. Friday May 2. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 14 May 1842
SUPREME COURT, HO1A1AR1T TOWN' SITTINGS IN BANCO. Friday Uay 2. TITLIY V. SIIttwIN.-The Attorney General, on the part of the defendant, ap plied for a rule to show cause why a non suit should not be entered in the above case instead of a verdict for the plaintiff, on the ground that thie jury, in arriving at their verdict, must have assumed that the defend °ant was agent both for the plaintiff and the company he represents, which was con trary to evidence. His Honor the Chief Justice could not soc how the jury arriving .at-the verdict they did carried with it the inference that they believed the defendant to -llave been the agent for more than the Insurance Company. The jury found an unconditional verdict. Ifthe point of agency had been reserved at the trial, the court could of course hear the arguments; but unless the point was so reserved, he thought they ought not to interfere with the verdict. The rule was, however, after some further discussion, granted.
THE LAUNCESTON SWAMP CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 14 May 1842
THE LAUNCESTON SWAMP CASE. AnnorTT . CnvEY?n.-This came before the court on demurrer. The declaration was in case for pulling down a house then in possession of plaintiffs tenant, to the in jury of plaintiff's reversionary interest. The defendant pleaded-1st, the general issue; 2ndly, that the plaintiff' had not the reversionary interest; and 3rdly, that the soil and freehold were in the Queen, and that defendant by her command pulled down the house because it encumbered the freehold. To the 3rd plea the plaintiff replied, that the defendant of his own wrong, and with out the cause by him assigned, committed the grievances complained of which repli cation is commonly called the replication " de injuria sua propvria." The defendant demurred to this plea on four grounds 1st. That the replication referred to the whole plea, and not the command only. 2ndly. That it put in issue matter of title. 3rdly. That the replication did not spe cially traverse the command alleged. 4thly. For being...
POETRY. LA NOTTE ED IL GIORNO. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 14 May 1842
POETRY. LA NOTTE ED IL GIORNO. AnROUND our globe with ceaseless flight Move the twin sisters clay and night; Intent to bear to every clime, The mandate of their father, time; And pour with equal-handed grace, His blessings on the human race. Day bathes the earth in dews of light, Night brings its visions yet more bright. The op'ning flower, the wild bird's song, To day, glad joyous day, belong ; While night, with step more staid and calm, Brings slumbers soft lethean balm. When day has suffer'd aught of care, Night sheds her soothing poppies there; If night hath brought us aught of sorrow, Day shall lead on a brighter morrow. When time's allotted course is done, His wings unplumed, his hour-glass run, May day be merged in brighter day, And fdtio in heaven's own light away; And all night's fairest visions be Changed to more bless'd reality I -LIocdy Flora Hastings.

MISCELLANY. SIR ROBERT PEEL'S SAUCE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 14 May 1842
MISCELLANY. SIR ROBERT PEEL'S SAUCE. t " Sir Robert Peeool's Sauce" is advertised a in tlio windows of the oilshops and Italian c warehouses. It is the best of all sauces. t VWith it any sort of fare, no matter how plain or coarse, is relished, and without it l the most delicious viands lack zest. With Sir Robert Pool's Sauce a morsel of dry broad or a scrap of broken victuals is a luxury. But why expatiate on an excellence which has always been admitted. Sir Robert Peel's Sauce is proverbially the best of sauces. Sir Robert Peel's Sauce is hunger. It is the sauce of the poor, and the only thing which the rich envy them, and cannot buy of them. Sir Robert Peel has been reproached for doing nothing ftbr the country since his ac cession to power; but he has given the people his sauce in abundance, and has he not postponed to February the increase of hunger 'I Sir Robert Pool's Sauce is made of preserved corn law, from which it is to be had in infinite ablunance. Never was it so plenti...
STEAM.—THE "CORSAIR." [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 14 May 1842
STEAM.-THIE " CORSAIR." WE presume Mr. Arden has acted advisedly in olffring a share in the Corsair to the in. habitants of Launceston ; and certainly the terms he has suggested are not unfavour able. For a considerable time after the Corsair entered on the colonial trade she was a source of extensive loss to the Port P1hillip company. Recently her trips are said to have been more profitable; and it is extraordinary liberality in the present charterers to ofi'r those who have not shared in their risk and loss a participation in their prosperity. It is impossible to doubt that many in cidental advantages would accrue to the colonies from continuing steam navigation; but after all, the interest of the mercantile members of society must regulate its ap plication, unless the public come forward and contribute on purely public grounds. The present condition of the colony is hardly fivourable to generous designs or speculative undertakings, and it would be dlificult to find a sulficient n...
LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, May 14, 1842. MONETARY MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 14 May 1842
LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, ,Saturday, May 14, 1842. MONETARY MATTERS. WE find that we are at issue with some of our Hobart Town contenmporaries, who have expressed on opinion on present monetary afhairs. Two are recommending the revival of usury laws, and a third pro pounding a schemne of equitable adjust ment. But however plausible such laws and arrangements may appear, in our opinion they are both useless and unat tainable. We are filly sensible that the present rate of interest is too high. No ordinary branches of trade or pursuits in agriculture will leave the borrower of money a profit when lie has answered the claims of the lender. No doubt the permanent interests, both of the capitalist and his cus tonmer, are one; but they cannot be ce mented by law-they cannot be interpreted by the necessitous on tlhe one side more than by the wealthy on the other. And however dreary and pitiable the present condition of many impoverished settlers, the State cannot interpose without pro ducing co...
