SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 21 May 1842

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. PRODUCTINE CAPABILITIES OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. — The list of plants successfully cultivated in South Australia, published in our last, has called fortlh some judicious ob- servations in the Examiner, regarding those which are supposed not to have succeeded, and upon the horticulture generally of this province. It is remarked with justice, that it is "one thing for a plant to grow and live, and another that it should thrive and produce" ; and a suggestion is thrown out that an account of the failures should be given as a means of attaching " additional credit to the details of success." With regard to the more inportant ne- cessary of life — the potatoe — and that " there is no reason to set down South Aus- tralia as a potatoe-growing colony," ex- perience, we think, has fairly set that ques- tion at rest. We by no means say that on the warmer plains of Adelaide the sum- mer's crop will be always a successful or abundant one ; but an autumn or a spring gathering may wit...

MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 21 May 1842

MllISCELLANY. ROMANCE 01 TiHE ORCHESTRA.-I once witnessed a sceifo (six or seven years ago) in the orchestra of Covent Garden, which for ludicrousness of effect and the myste rious manner in which it arose, surpassed anything that ever came under my notice. A friend, considerably my senior, and a play-goer of the time of the Kombles, was one of my companions; the other was his wife, to accommodate whom, being short sighted, we had established ourselves in the front row of the pit, on the prompter's side. At the commencement of the overture, we found that the scroll-end of one of the large double basses intercepted the lady's view of the stage, and a request was preferred by my friend to the performer (a most eccen tric looking genius, with only one eye, and that apparently turniig on what mechanics call " an universal centre") to alter his posi tion, but lie very uncourteously refused to move; and still worse, on the rising of the curtain, hl left the instrument secured in a perpend...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 21 May 1842

SYDNEY. By the William we have files of papers to the 5th instant. The government has decided on a most unpopular requirement in reference to education. Before the schoolmaster can claim the usual allow- ance for each scholar, they must certify that the parents of the child are unable to pay school fees. The Observer designates this a " trap for tender consciences, and a premium on want of principle." Several conscientious schoolmasters have already been by this measure muleted of the go- vernment quota guaranteed by the original act of council. — The ecclesiastical inquiry into the conduct of the Rev. Mr. Brigstock in publishing an anonymous letter in the Herald, reflecting on the character of Mr. C. O'Brien, of Yass, had terminated. The reverend gentleman had stated that Mr. O'Brien, a magistrate, frequently diverted himself with a pack of hounds on the sab- bath day. The Yass hounds were in his charge, and it appeared in evidence that it was quite common to hear them in full cry ...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 21 May 1842

MECHANIOS' INSTITUTE. Captain Friend delivered a lecture on the science of astronomy at the Mechanics' Institute, on Tuesday evening lost. A considerable number of persons 1aid for admission, and the room was full. We think admission ought to be given on easier terms. A number of tickets might be is sued to each member for distribution, and seats might be reserved for those in a condition to pay. We are aware these improvements would require a larger building, and it is desirable the erection of one should be early contemplated; a moment and it is done. In the mnentime, might not the chapels in town be lent for the purpose, Surely, no building is desecrated by the lessons of science and philosophy. Captain Friend's lecture, principally extem porary, we understand, displayed an intimate acquaintance with the subject, which he very properly explained in a tbmiliar manner to the meeting. Of course, the lecture could not be equally intelligible to all, but the least informed would doubt...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. THE GENTLEMEN'S LAP DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 21 May 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. THE GENTLEMEN'S LAP DOG. SIR. — It is surprising to notice the force of human nature. That noble propensity " philopro- genitiveness" never fails to manifest itself under the most unfavourable circumstances ; and where one of the same kindred is not available as an object, man frequently condescends to adopt the quadru- ped — for instance, the lady has her "pet darling lap-dog," pampered and fed on all the dainties of the larder ; the gentleman has his " pack of hounds," all clean and sleek as a mole. Even the most noble gentlemen in a certain gang near the Cataract mill, have theirs also ; which they are kindly permitted leisure to fondle and caress. Poor creatures ! how they rejoice at the bountiful kindness of their masters ; they skip and play, and even tumble over each other with delight, and it is really amusing to see their various gambols. There is one brown bull dog, who at present wears a chain (which by the way looks rather suspic...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 21 May 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR. — Can you inform me what is the number of the population of Van Diemen's Land ; and, also the quantity of land cultivated throughout the island for grain. The government, I believe, send round annually for the purpose of ascertain- ing these particulars. [ENQUIRER. [We believe no statistical returns have been published since 1839. The tables in our possession include the years 1824 to 1839. In December, 1838, there were 26,055 free inhabitants, 18,133 prisoners, 1,576 military, (including their wives and children) and 82 aborigines, making a grand total of 45,846 inhabitants. We trust the govern- ment will, at an early period, give publicity to the results obtained during thie years 1839, 1840, and 1841. At the same period, 108,000 acres were under cultivation. — ED. L.

CORONER'S INQUEST. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 21 May 1842

CORONER'S INQUEST, AN INQUEST was held on Saturday last, the 14th instant, before P. A. Mulgrave, Esq., at the Gol- den Lion in William-street, on view of the body of John Ryan, a brickmaker, about thirty-two years of age, who died suddenly on the morning of the same day. James Powell examined — I first saw the de- ceased at Thomas Skinner's house on Thursday last ; he said he had been making bricks in the country, and complained of being troubled with rheumatic pains ; he dined with Skinner's family, and took his tea and supper about six o'clock ; he appeared to eat heartily ; he slept in the same bed with me ; we went to bed together ; he was then quite sober ; when I awoke on Friday morn- ing, soon after daylight, the deceased was out ; I next saw him him at breakfast-time ; he soon afterwards complained of rheumatic pains, and at his request I rubbed some brandy and salt over his back ; he dined and supped with the family on Friday, and appeared as well as he did on Thurs- day ;...

MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 21 May 1842

MISCELLANY. Prince Albert has become a British far- mer, as the valuable stock and crops on the Norfolk and Flemish farms, Windsor Great Park, which were in the occupation of His Majesty King William IV., have been valued to his Royal highness from the crown by Mr. John Braithwaite, of Cob- ham, by order of Her Majesty's commis- sioners. On Saturday morning, a new vehicle was exhibited in Great Scotland-yard, before some of the Commissioners of Police, which is to be used instead of the present police omnibus when there are not more than two prisoners to be conveyed to any place. It is drawn by one horse, and is so constructed as to accommodate one policeman besides the driver on the box in front. It opens behind with a pair of folding doors, and presents the appearance of one of those cabs commonly known us " omnibus slices," but without windows.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 21 May 1842

(From our Second Edition.) Mr. SHERWIN has resigned the management of the Launceston Branch of the Commercial Bank. His local knowledge must have been of material service to the establishment, and his re- moval will be regretted by many. Rumours are afloat respecting the mode and extent of business the Commercial will in future carry on, which we trust will prove incorrect. The Bank of Austral- asia, where prudence will permit, is resolved to carry its customers safely through the difficulties that may arise ; and we can hardly believe that the Commercial Bank, which has reaped so large a harvest from Launceston traders, will sacrifice their interest now, and desert them at a crisis like the present. Sir John Franklin's plan fur the extension of emigration has been highly approved of. — No ac- count has yet been received of the provisions of the bill granting an elective legislative assembly for New South Wales, nor whether we are to par- ticipate in that benefit. — There is not the...
