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

SYDNEY. Private advices inform us that not more than Ts. can be procured for Van Diemen's Land wheat. A gentleman had been offered 10,000 tons of fine I flour at £15 per ton, six and twelve months' cre dit. In the southern districts wheat, equal to Van Diemen's Land growth, is raised; and the cultivation is yearly extending. Tea had declined in consequence of fresh arrivals ; it might be pur chased at £5 per chest. Prices of flour and wheat at the mills.

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 farmers 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,...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 21 May 1842

NEW ZEALAND. That Auckland will continue to prosper, no rational doubt can be entertained. Ac- counts recently received warrant us in an- ticipating the arrival of ships with immi- grants and goods direct from the mother country, almost immediately. Arrange- ments, we know, have been entered into by enterprising settlers to procure machinery for the establishments of saw-mills, and for dressing the native flax for exportation. Several extensive brick-making establish- ments are already in operation, and prepara- tions are being made for the commence- ment of others. Within a short distance of the capital, it is now ascertained, there are extensive beds of coal, in convenient situa- tions for shipment, which can be won and worked with but little difficulty. Springs of the purest water are found in most parts of Auckland at a few feet from the surface, and even in the most elevated situations by boring twenty or thirty feet. The Thames and the streams that flow into it, abound with th...

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

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 [how 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. Dost Mahomed is detained at Saharunpore for the present. His eldest son Ackbar Khan, chief promoter of the rebellion. A new king proclaimed at Cabool, a...

SECOND EDITION. LATEST INTELLIGENCE. Including the News by this day's Post. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 21 May 1842

SECOND EDITION. LATEST INTELLIGENCE. Including the News by this day's Post.   FATAL ACCIDENT.—A man in the employment   of Mr. Hopwood, at Longford, was sent to the mill yesterday morning, in charge of a loaded   dray and two valuable horses. In attempting to cross the river, at Fenton's Ford, on his return home, the man and horses were swept away by the current, and we regret to say, were drowned, before their situation attracted notice. AN extraordinary statement appears in the Colonial Times, respecting a Launceston insolvent, named Riley, now in gaol. The real facts of the case are very different from the statement made public, but want of space precludes us from pub- lishing those with which we have been furnished. We will, however, notice the case next week. OUTLANDS RACES.—Giovemni, in the race for the Ladies' Purse, fell; and, we regret to say,   his rider, Mr. Maddox, broke his collar bone. IN yesterday's Gazette, we notic...
