TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 14 May 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR. — So " Observer" has become an " Opera- tive !" When will this opposer of the spread of     knowledge learn wisdom ? When will this votary of " real science," this self-constituted arbiter of the good or ill of others, cease his brawling ? Is he really so infatuated — so completely absorbed in his own self-sufficiency — so elevated by the opinion he has of his own abilities, as to imagine that his foul, unmanly, and disgraceful personali- ties will, in the smallest degree, aflfect any one but himself ? But he may, perhaps, think he will be taken for a classical scholar, and " While we gaze, that still the wonder grows That one small head could carry all he knows." Surely the elegance of his diction, the chasteness of his style, and the suitability of the epithets he employs are sufficient vouchers for the profundity of his learning. Take a few quotations — " Archi- mides," " impostor," " Newton," " humbug." Cho...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 14 May 1842

TO CORRESPONDENTS. "A Spectator's" communication came too late for this number. His letter is to us an enigma. Before the next day of publication we will en- deavour to ascertain what he is driving at. We are sorry " Pure Water" should have been   at the trouble of addressing us in rhyme which we cannot publish. His communication shall be pre- served in our portfolio, and if required in support of his views at a future period, his letter shall certainly appear. As we intimated last week, the public are tired of the present mode of warfare.

MISCELLANY. SIR ROBERT PEEL'S SAUCE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 14 May 1842

MISCELLANY.     SIR ROBERT PEEL'S SAUCE. " Sir Robert Peel's Sauce" is advertised in the windows of the oilshops and Italian warehouses. It is the best of all sauces. With it any sort of fare, no matter how plain or coarse, is relished, and without it the most delicious viands lack zest. With Sir Robert Peel's Sauce a morsel of dry bread 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 for 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 ? Sir Robert Peel's Sauce is made of preserved corn law, from which it is to be had in infinite abundance. Never ...

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 contemporaries, who have expressed an opinion on present monetary affairs. Two are recommending the revival of usury laws, and a third pro- pounding a scheme 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 fully 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 he has unswered the claims of the lender. No doubt the permanent interests, both of the capitalist and his cus- tomer, are one ; but they cannot be ce- mented by law — they cannot be interpreted by the necessitous on the 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...

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.

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. he llmain questions are those of the burn ing of the (caroline, tile boundary, and the right of search in the case of vessels sus pected of being engaged in tile slave trade.

'They have not been alarmed by that race " who give liking to tinolthing bt what is tftuinc by themselves, and h1itCmered on their own anvil.", The institute now rests on a solid foundation ; but as the design was drawn by men iden tified with the inechanics, so by the same hands and the suame assistance, the super slructure will rise.

STEAM.—THE "CORSAIR." [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 14 May 1842

STEAM. — THE " CORSAIR." WE presume Mr. Arden has acted advisedly in offering 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 Phillip company. Recently her trips are said to have been more profitable ; and it is extraordinary liberality in the present charterers to offer 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 favourable to generous designs or speculative undertakings, and it would be difficult to...
