POETRY. LA NOTTE ED IL GIORNO. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 14 May 1842

POETRY. LA NOTTE ED IL GIORNO. AROUND our globe with ceaseless flight Move the twin sisters day 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 its 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 fade in heaven's own light away ; And all night's fairest visions be Changed to more bless'd reality ! — Lady Flora Hastings.

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. (Via Port Phillip.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 14 May 1842

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. (Via Port Phillip.) By the Hopkinson, from Liverpool 9th of January. American news to the 15th December had been received. A propo- sition had been submitted to the legislature of Tennessee to divide that state into two separate commonwealths. The President's message was affording the usual degree of interest. The chief topic of discussion with this excitable nation was a charge of a criminal nature brought against the di- rectors of the National Bank for defraud- ing the shareholders, and upon which a grand jury had found a true bill ! ! Lord Ashburton had been appointed by government to proceed on a special mission to the United States of America, for the purpose of settling various matters in dis- pute between England and that country. The main questions are those of the burn- ing of the Caroline, the boundary, and the right of search in the case of vessels sus- pected of being engaged in the slave trade. It is currently reported in the naval cir- cles that the ...

THE LAUNCESTON SWAMP CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 14 May 1842

TIHE LAUNCESTON SWAMP CASE. ABBOTT v. CHEYNE. — This came before the court on demurrer. The declaration was in case for pulling down a house then in possession of plaintiff's 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 propria." 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. 4thl...

SUPREME COURT, HOBART TOWN SITTINGS IN BANCO. Friday May 2. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 14 May 1842

SUPREME COURT, HOBART TOWN SITTINGS IN BANCO. Friday May 2. TETLEY v. SHERWIN. — 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 the 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 see how the jury arriving at the verdict they did carried with it the inference that they believed the defendant to have been the agent for more than the Insurance Company. The jury found an unconditional verdict. If the 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 Bank of Austral asia, where prudence will permit, is resolved to carry its customers safely through the difficulties that may arise;; and we can hardly believe that the Conlercial Baink, which has reaped so large a harvest from Launceston traders, will sacrifice their Interest now, and desert them at a crIsis like the present.
