MECHANICS' INSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 14 May 1842

MECHANICS' INSTITUTION. LAUNCESTON possesses at length a Me- chanics' Institution. Its internal regula- tion is now finally settled, and its officers appointed by the parties who alone are en- titled to choose them. The meeting of Tuesday passed off undisturbed. The lit- tle spirits who distribute their petulant quibbling, and display their mortified va- nity in the columns of newspapers, were either absent or invisible. The members have pursued their object with unanimity, prudence, and zeal. They have not been alarmed by that race " who give liking to nothing but what is framed by themselves, and hammered on their own anvil." The institute now rests on a solid foundation : but as the design was drawn by men iden- tified with the mechanics, so by the same hands and the same assistance, the super- structure will rise. The mechanics of Launceston are not tainted with the pride that spurns ; but they are incapable of the meanness which implores the smile of the ranks above them : they...

Other parties of bushrangers were still abroad; five were reported as taken near Geelong.—The overcrowded state of the gaol was a subject of general complaint.—Burglaries and swin dling were of painfully frequent occurrence. —On the 2nd May the three captured bushrangers were fully committed to take their trials for highway robbery and shoot ing at with intent to kill.—It was proposed to form a troop of yeomanry for the pro tection of the settlers, in case of further disturbance from bushrangers.

The chcst was packed 1,500 miles above Canton, where the newspaper, which is in excellent preservation, must have been in ; and no explanation is given to remove the mystery how it has been preserv...

NEW ZEALAND. That Auckland will continue to prosper, no rational doubt can be entertained. Ac counts recently received warrant us in an ticipating the arrival of ships with immi grants and goods direct from the mother country, almost immediately. Arrange ments, we know, have been entered into by enterprising settlers to procure machinery for the establishments of saw-mills, and for dressing the native flax for exportation. Several extensive brick-making establish ments are already in operation, and prepara tions are being made for the commence ment of others. Within ashortdistance of the capital, it is now ascertained, there are extensive beds of coal, in convenient situa tions for shipment, which can be won and worked with but little difficulty. Springs of the purest water are found in most parts of Auckland at a few feet from the surahee, and even in the most elevated situations by boring twenty or thirty feet. The Tlumes and tte streams that flow into it, abound with the finest f...
