FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 28 May 1842
FRANCE. The different railroads in contemplation will extend 400 leagues. These 400 leagues will require 200,000 tons of bar-iron, and 60,000 tons of cast iron. The construction of these roads will not be concluded in less time than ten years. The consumption in them of cast iron would be only 25,000 tons annually, whilst Belgium pro duces annually 200,000 tons. ¶ lhe conse quence would be, that B3elgium would monopolise the market to the prejudice of the French mnlunaltiturer. From the year 1838 the 31st of Decem ber last there were firnished by the French metal works a iquantity of rails sufficient for 105 leagues, and those orders were exe cuted at a diminution of 20 per cent. in their price. The National states, that although the ministerial journals thought proper to deny that a serious battle had taken place be tween some regiments belonging to the garrison of Paris, it appears from a return of the wounded remaining in the hospital of the Gros-Caillon on the Oth inst,, that th...

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE TEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 28 May 1842
ORIGINAL POE'LRY. THE TEAR. When friendship or love :: Our sympathies move; When truth, in a glance, shall appear, The lips may beguile, With a dinlple or smile, But thile test of affection's a tent. Too oft is a smile But the hypocrite's wile, To mark detestation or fear : Give me the soft sigh, While the soul-telling eye Is dimm'd, for a time, with a tear. Mild charity's glow, To us mortals below, Shows the soul from barbarity clear; Compassion will melt VWhere this virtue is felt, As its dcle is dlflus'd in a tear. The man doona'd to sail With the blast of the gale, Through billows majestie to steer, As he lends o'er the wave, Which alay soon be his grave, Thle green sparkles bright with a tear. The soldier braves death, For a fanciful wreath, In glory's romantic career; But lie raises the fee, In battle laid low, And bathes every wound with a tear.:: If with high bounding pride He returns to his bride, Renouncing the gore-crinsoned spear, All his tolls are repaid, When emlbracin...
