SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 28 March 1842
SYDNEY. We have received by the Corsair, Sydney journals to the 15th March inclusive. They contain nothing of very stirring interest. There is no truth in. the reported rise of grain in the Sydney market ; the papers allude to this report as a ' pure fiction.' The Go vernor had given it as his opinion that the Government were bound to make good all monies that came into Mr. Manning's pos 'seSk|t5n without the consent. of parties, but from what source the money ought to be paid, he could not determine. The Rev. R. Mansfield had brought an action for libel against the Australasian Chronicle— damages one shilling; the judge certified for costs. A meeting had taken place relative to the erec tion of Sir Richard Bpurke's statute ; only about £120 more would be required to com plete the undertaking. The bushrangers were continuing their depredations in some of the nterior districts ; several had been captured. The Sydney Herald in acknowledging the receipt of Van Dienien's Land I rieVre, ...

SCENES AT THE POLICE OFFICE [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 28 March 1842
SCENES AT THE POLICE OI-'l'ICE. A large number of visitors congregated at the police office on Thursday morning, to hear a case of assault, which had been for two previous days a subject of gen eral conversation. The defendant, was William ..iishinglon Goodwin, i-squire; theplain'.ilT, plain Mr. Piddiugton. Mr. Rochcr appeared for the defendant, and plaintiff conducted his own case. To give any detailed account of the proceedings, would be to put upon record the most disgusting and foul-mouthed language that ever we heard repeated in any court of justice, or by the lowest of assigned ser vants; and if we may hazard a remark, it would be to censure the bench for allowing a repetition in their pre sence of such abominable and filthy expressions, which were not at all material to the point at issue. Swearing is not an assault, however, much additional force it may give to the manner and the expression, and it is by the common repetition of oaths and blasphemous expressions used by othe...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, MARCH 28. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 28 March 1842
THE UUNCESTON C00R1ER. MONDAY, MARCH 28. By the Corsair, a gentleman named Lang, has arrived from Port Phillip, with instructions from the Home Government to be appointed to a Police Magistracy in this Colony. News of the appointment of this gentleman reached the Colony some time since, and it will be re collected that we then called into question the right of. the Home Government to interfere in such local appointments. We still continue of the same opinion. We know nothing of Mr. Laxg personally ; we have heard him spoken of as an agreeable companion, of gentlemanly manners, and most popular prin ciples, inclining rather to radicalism. He conies to us also with the strong recommen dation of having been a strenuous advocate for reform. Granting all these qualifications, we have no hesitation in pronouncing any stranger to be totally incapable of properly administering the duties of police, or assistant police magistrate in a penal colony. His expe rience in England will avail him n...

.-?''„. :.'?' JPcBTitir.** . ''-??',-.'' J.tNF.S COMPOSED AT A BALL. The festive scene invites the dance, ? 'And many an eya is beaming, With hope and joy, that soon, perchance, In sorrow may be streaming. Ah 1 who, in such an hour as this, Would dream of pain or sorrow ; Or think if here, where all his bliss. Pale care may come to-morrow ? Yet soon the roseate hue may die, On yonder lovoly cheek ; And brilliancy forsake the eye, That now does all but spenk. Yes 1— care may come— but not to-night. This hour is all for gladicss: And who would throw o'er smiles so bright, The slightest shades of sadness 9 And if 1 when years have rolled away, We hear these strains again ? How fondly memory's glance will stray, O'er these b-ighl moments then. Recall to mind each absent face, Then withered, changed, or dead ; And, for one happy moment, trace Bright joys for ever .fled.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. Sir, Observing in th- Cornwall Chronicle of Saturday, the I9lb instant, a letter, signed ' A Lover of the Good Stuff,' and wishing to make some few remarks, I have ventured, from your known impartiality, to intrude on your columns. The letter, Sir, as usual contains plenty of abuse, and has no pretension to either argument or truth. The writer, in the first place proposes to takeasuivey of the individuals that compose the Total Abstinence So ciety, and very respectfully denounces them as men, of the lowest and most illiterate class— men, whose facul ties and constitutions (not circumstances) have been to tally destroyed by long and contiuued habits of excess. 1 1 has been a matter of wonder to me. Sir, that this Lover of Stuff did not find out, while writing and think ing about these poor teetotal fellows, that iheir Society was foimed for the reception and reformation of such characters. Now, Sir, if it can be proved, that this so ciety has ...
