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 symptom which marks a particular stage, but from the in- domitable resolution and quiet enthusiam 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...

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

SYDNEY. fly 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 schoolmnsters 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, andi a premium on want of principle." Several conscientious schoolhasters have already been by this measure mulcted 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 math (lay. TThe Yass hounds were in his charge, and it appeared in evidence that it was quite common to hear thlemil in full c...

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

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. (Prom the South Ausal rein Rerister.) PRODUeTINE CAPAxILITIES OP SOUTH A.ustfALTA.-TIhe list of plants successfully cultivated in South Australia, published in our last, has called forth 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 ftilures should be given as a means of attaching " additional credit to the details of succss." With regard to the more important no 'essary of life - the potatoo -- and that ' there is no reason to set down South Aus tralia as a potatoe-growing colony," ox perience, we think, has thirly set that ques tion at rest. We by no means say that on the warmer plains of Adelaide the sumt mer's crop will be always a successful or abundant one ; but an autumn...

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

THE INSOLVENT LAW. It is not in the power of legislation to 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 commercial prosperity ; and 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 sufficiently guard. It cannot be doubted that the loose pro- visions of the Insolvent Law are an encou- ragement to recklessness and dishonesty,   and present temptations to commercial gambling. The 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-in...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 21 May 1842

CAPE OF GOOD hOPE. We have Cape papers to the 11th of March. We publish with much satisfaction, another proof of the serious attention which the Commissioners of the Cape Town Municipality, bestow to the interest of the farmers. It has come to their knowledge, that some persons buying goods on the market direct the larmers to bring them either to some square, such as Market square or Boerenplein, or other public place, and when the farmer arrives thereat, no purchaser is to be found, which detains the farmer for a long time, and at last ob- liges him to sell his articles at a reduced price. This is now obviated by the fol lowing directions giving to the market master : "That the market master be directed, the mo- ment an article put up for public sale; on the market Is knocked down by the auctioneer, to note on the certificate the place of delivery, and If no house or store is stated, as directed In the 135th section of the market regulations, but a street, square, or other public p...

CABOOL. We have the following items in a letter from the Loodianah quarter, and they are likely enough to be correct. After men tioning the return of M'Laren's brigade, and stating that there is good reason to suppose that at least thirty-eight officers have fallen at Cobool, and expressing fears that the Khyber Pass will be closed on Colonel Wild, our correspondent says: " You have no idea of the excitement that prevails in this quarter about Cabool. The despatches are written in French and car ried in a quill 1how the quill is secreted, we know, but cannot describe !] and so strict is the search made by the insurgents after letter carriers, that any man caught going in the direction of Peshawur is stripped and examined from head to foot, even his shoes being cut in pieces for fear they might contain intelligence.
