POETRY EPRENTANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 14 March 1842
. ' ' POETS.'?. TlRPKNTANCB. tio. lei me weep I there's bliss in tears. When he who sheds them only feels Some lingering stain of early vcars Effaced by every drop that steals. The fruitless showers of worldly woe Full dark to earth, and never rise : While tears that from repentance, flow. In bright cxhalement reach the skies. Leave me to sigh o'er hours thnt (lew More idly than the summer's wind; And while they passed, a fragrance threw, But left no trace of sweet.- behind. The warmest sigh that pleasure heaves Is faint, is cold to those that swell The heart, where pure repentance grieves O'er hours of pleasure, lov'd too well.

SECOND DAY [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 14 March 1842
SECOND DA}'. On Wednesday the Course was equally well attended and the day being cool, served to throw additiona spirit into the sport. The running on the whole was better than on Tuesday. THE PUBLICANS' PUUSE. Of forty sovereigns added to a sweepstakes of 6 sovereigns. For this race the following horses started : — Mr. Hunter's ch. g. Romeo, 6 year, old. Mr. Gardiner's b. h. Goldfinder, 5 year old. Mr. Lamb's g. h. Plenipo, aged. Mr. J. Ewart's b. h. Prince Albert, 4 year old. It was evident at first starling, that Plenipo stood no chance, (his inhuman master the day before having allowed the horse to run a three mile race after two heals for the Town Plate. When we consider the oppressive heat of the day, we cannot but think that Lamb should have been hooted off the course for his brutality. ) Romeo took both heats with ease. The iient on the list was a match, three miles and a distance, weight lOst, 7Jbs., between Mr H. Jamie son's b. g. Woodman, ridden by Mr. J. Hunter, and Mr. ...

EXPENSE OF IRRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 14 March 1842
EXPENSE OF IRRIGATION. The following is an extract from an article which will appear in the next number of the Tmmanian Journal. We copy !it ?from the columns of the Van Dicmeit's Land Chronicle, but how it got there, is a matter .of. mystery, which has thrown the hangers-on at Government House into fin awful state of fermentation. , Without enquiring into the matter, we may state, that the article is from the pen of Captam Cotton, and is an ex ceedingly valuable production ; the fact of its having ap'psared , in. the V. 2-. Land ^Chronicle, constitutes no detraction from its merits, although it may have astonished the Jiterarie cotery brer wWch Lady Franklin presides. ; - - \ ???????. jfSifieiu'.vflTrigation.v ' '??? :? ..??': This will, of course^ *ary greatly according toiitua-- tion; but an ei'ainple of .the probable cost of effect ing it in each of the wa_ys mentioned, taken, from observation of particular localities in the colony, may be useful. . ;' ?- . . *:.* Cost cf Tanks....

The proprietor of Plenipo was highly reprehensible for running his horse in this heat of 3 miles, after the animal had so ably acquitted himself in the former ones, and as expected, was nearly distanced.
