LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, March 12, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 12 March 1842
LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, &nbsp; Saturday, March 12, 1842. THE barque Richard Webb, arrived at Hobart Town from Dublin 15th November, brings the pleasing intelligence of the birth of a Prince of Wales on the 9th. Her Majesty and royal offspring were in excel- lent health. IN proposing the establishment of another journal in Van Diemen's Land it may be proper to state its principles and delineate its plan ; more than this would be superflu- ous : to apologise would be mere affectation ; we expect — we ask no favour, unless our exertions to instruct and please appear to deserve it. A strong and general impression exists that the multifarious interests, increased population, and advancing influence of this town and neighbourhood, demand the establishment of an additional newspaper : having aspired to fill the acknowledged va- cancy, we are resolved to maintain our po- &nbsp; sition with spirit and resolution, to win the &nbsp; confidence a new undertaking can hardly ...
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 19 March 1842
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. (Continued from our last,) The publication of thie Colonial Records was exciting considerable interest. The Zuld Afri/haan has the following notice of the matter: The communication of Mr. D. Moodie, and our appeal, has had a good cfiict. The public have becen roused, and are becoming subscribers ; and last, not least, the Board of Commnissioners of the Cape Town Municipality, oil receiving from Mr. Moodie a copy of the publication, have resolved in their meeting of Wednesday last, to submlit to the ensuing meeting of the Boar'd of Wardmasters their resolution of the following tenor: "That it is the opinion of the Board of Com missioners that the publication of the Cape re cords is a national work, which, as it tends to v'n dicate the character and measures of the colonists and colonial government, with reference to the aborigines, should he brought to a conclusion. That Mr. D. Moodie, the compiler and editor of the same, deserves the acknowledgmicnts of the Cape p...
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 19 March 1842
ENGLIS? EXTRACTS. Shortly before one o'clock, the following oflicial bulletin, announcing her Majesty's accouchement, and the birth of a Prince, was publishedlc : " The Queen was safely delivered of a Prince this morning, at forty-eight minutes past ten o'clock.

"Buckinghaum Palace, Tuesday, Nov. g, 1841, half past 11 o'clock." -Standard. lhe following extract is from one of Lord John Russell's despatches to Governor Hobson, and has lately been published in a volume of parliamentary papers relating to New Zealand. We deemi it of sufficient interest to lay before our readers, as deve loping' views of colonial policy characteris lie of the late Ministry: Another important rule for your guidance is, to promnote, as thr as possible, the establishment of municipal and district governments for the col duct of all local affairs, such as drain...
PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 19 March 1842
PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. (Continued from our last.) The Examiner remarks on the Premier's debtt If it had been the intention of Sir Robert Peel to insult the distresses of the country. he could not have slighted them in a more marked and offensive way than lie contrived to do in his deblt as Prime Minister on Thursday. He appeared to give importance to trifles, as if to show how much more trifling he thought the questions which so large a portion of the community deem of thie vastest importance and vital concern. The whole was no had copy of Nero fiddling while Rosme was burning; and Sir Robert Pcel's tune in the midst of the fire is to " put the kettle on." Tile first subject, first in order and in conse quence, on ,which Sir Robert Peel entered wit h due pomp, was the warming and ventilating of th e new houses. This great topic occupiet a fit I quarter of his speech. There is something chla - racteristic inl the beginning-it said, " let us, first of all, take care to keep ourse...
NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 19 March 1842
NEW ZEALAND. The Land Claims' Bill (says the New Zealand lcearld) escaped the Committee on Thursday with the loss of a great por tion of its prodigious tail; it is now a snug little concern, consisting of three or four small clauses, so ambiguously worded that any child may read them, but tile wisdom of Solomon, or Solon himself, could not fathom their meaning. It is a neat little mnultum in parvo to settle a thousand claims, each varying from another, and affecting in their just settlement not only the present but prospective welfare of this interesting country. We were very much amazed at the great concessions made by the Government to two of the independent members, who we know were very sanguine in their expectations, and who ho were very anxious to impress upon the public mind that they would put everything to rights, and procure a good mensure from the Go vernment. We hope the public, and the land claimants in particular, will show their gratitude to Mr. Porter and Mr. Cleudon...
NEW TALE OF A TUB. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 19 March 1842
NEW TALE OF A TUB. Thrn " New Tale of a Tub" appears as a thin small folio, consisting of some sixteen pages of humorous verse, with seven or eiqht lithographic drawings, the former being by F. W W. N. Bayley, and the latter by Aubrey, from designs by Lieutenant J. S. Cotton. If any man has a tolerable drawing-room, in which he finds it some timer rather difficult to get company up to a certain pitch, let him possess himself of this laughter-moving volume, and deposit it on the principal table in the said room after which, we venture to predict, awful half hours before dinner, and tedious yawn ing whole hours after it, will be known no longer in that locality. The Tale of a Tub is told both by the drawings and the verse, clearly enough by the latter, but with out rageous drollery by the former. The scene is in Bengal. On a coolish day two gentle men, one tall and thin, the other short and stout, resolve to walk in the country and eljdoy a plc-nice. An empty barrel has been carried o...
