THE INSOLVENT LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 21 May 1842

THE INSOLVENT LAW. It is not in the power of legislation to 1 prevent the success of dishonesty, or to de feat the cunning of the swindler. The con fidence reposed by traders in each other, is necessary to conmmercial prosperity; andil when confidence is shaken the spirit of enterprise languishes, and gloom over spreads every market, and embarrasses every movement. But the ready credulity which admits the slightest evidence of re sponsibility, and establishes through every branch of business a system of credit, opens a door to the fraudulent, which no vigilance can sufliciently guard. It cannot be doubted that the loose pro visions of the Insolvent Law are an encou ragement to redklessness and dishonesty, and present temptations to commnereial gambling. 'l'lie speculator sets out with the conviction that should his hazard prove fortunate the profits are his own; should it prove unsuccessful, the losses are his neigh bours. The spendthrift knows that his lavish self-indulgence will c...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, May 21, 1842. THE SCOTCH KIRK QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 21 May 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, .May 21, 1842. THE SCOTCH KIRK QUESTION. NUMEROUS notices in the public journals have apprised our readers of a serious collision between the ecclesiastical and civil powers in Scotland. A Scotch re ligious contest is always a formidable affair; not from any symnlptonl which marks a particular stage, but from the in 'onitable resolution and quiet enthusiasm with which it is prosecuted. It has been' assumed that the breezes from the frozen ocean, blowing barrenness on the moun tains and moors of Caledonia, have caused the keen theological acumen which sniffs the distant taint of heresy. But Scotch men are not only theologians; they have transformed their country by cultivation, and studded her with cities of art and commerce. She has sent forth her chil dren wherever science, enterprise, and valour invite; foremost to brave the battle and the breeze : but the zeal they mani fest on religious questions is a striking characteristic of the nation. It is, h...
