Never men com menced an enterprise in higher hope and zeal, or under circumstances more favorable — officers, men, and ships being alike eminently fitted for the service.

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER MONDAY, FEBRUARY 21. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 21 February 1842

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 21. The Government are persisting in their folly witb respect to the Quit-rents. They are making attempts to enforce them, by sending to dif ferent parties the amount of their claims, but beyond this, they have not ventured to pro ceed, and we predict, they dare not. It be comes the duty of the Colonists, however to make a powerful resistance against whatever measures the Government may adopt ; and we cannot avoid expressing our utmost astonish ment, that some public demonstration has not long since been made, when the strongest of all possible motives that of self-interest, and self-protection calls upon them to be upon the alert. The grounds of opposition to the .collection of tlie Quit-rent have by common consent been reduced to this one: — That, the instructions issued in 1826, must be com plied with, before any correct estimate of the arrears -can be ascertained. The sixteenth of those regulations has been repeatedly brought under the no...

SUPREME COURT. Tuesday, Feb. 6th. The Sittings in Banco of the first term commenced this day. TETLEY V. SHERWIN. This was an action tried before Mr. Justice Montagu and a jury of twelve at the sittings after last term, on which occasion a verdict was recovered by the plain tiff for the amount of the insurance which he claimed upon the loss of schooner Paul Pry. The facts of the case are in the recollection of all our readers to whom the subject is in any way interest ing. The Attorney- General moved this morning Tor a rule to show cause why the verdict obtained by the plain tiff should not be set aside and a new trial directed. The verdict of the Jury— the learned gentleman stated ? was one that never could have been expected, fur it was alike inconsistent with the directions of the learned Judge as to the law, and opposed to the evidence. Jt was grounded on the assumption— for the fart was so stated by the Foreman of the Jury in answer to a ques lion t'ro'm His Honor— that the Defe...

Tuesday, Feb. 15. TETLEY V. SHEBWIX. Ill this case a verdict hod, on a trial at the last Civil Sittings, been returned for the plaintiff, two dissenti ents appearing, Messrs. Furlado and Wnrham. On Tuesday week last, being the silting in banco of the first Term, the Attorney-General, on behalf of the defendant, moved for a rule to show cause why a new trial should not be granted, on the grounds that the verdict had been returned contrary to the evidence, and in complete opposition to the directions of His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu, who tried the case. The decision had, according to the very words of the foreman of tbe jury, been arrived at under the im pression that the defendant acted as agent to both parties, which was at variance with the evidence eli cited fiom Mr M'Pherson.

POETRY TO ELIZABETH, ON HER BIRTH-DAY. Accompanied with a Wreath of the Flower "Everlasting." [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 21 February 1842

POETRY. TO n.IZABRTH, ON HER BIRTH-DAY. Accompanied willi a Wreath qftbc Flower ' Ecerltuting.' hweet Lizzy ] on thy natal day, I fain thy youthful brow would wreathe With flowers, as beautiful and gay. As e'er in spring their odours breathe; But ah I sad Autumn's dismal reign ? Hath swept with desolating power, O'er grove and garden, hill and plain, And left ub scarce one lingering flower. Just so my heart, in sorrow's thrall. Mourns o'er its sweetest pleasures gone, And vainly would my heart recall Some portion of its former tone ; ] ts notes of joy loo long have slept. To wake the tuneless chords again — My heart too long, too often wept— It cannot breathe one joyous strain ! Yet, though a melancholy veil Hangs o'er my bosom's sunshine now— Though Autumn flowers are all 100 pale To bind on youth's unclouded brow Dear Lizzy I wilt thou pause to hear Affection's sad, but tender lay— A fervent prayer, a wish sincere, For blessings on thy future day ? Thou wilt— for thou hast learned...
