MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 28 May 1842
1MECHAI ICS' INSTITUTE. Is Launceston now to support a mecha nics' institution, or to wait, at the bidding of its enemies, until a race of lecturers shall arise who repudiate book-learning, and reject all knowledge unless it is derived intuitively, or drops from the clouds ? A correspondent of the Cornwall Chronicle (such we describe him in courtesy) will be able to detract from every public lecture by similar objections, until some noble Turk shall destroy every library, and com pel public speakers to depend on their own discoveries, andl give their own inductions. But does it become a man of understand ing, not to say a scholar, to reproach a lecturer with speaking in conformity with established facts ? A book contains the elements of a science-so may a lecture and is a speaker required to strike out some eccentric path in establishing mathe matical or physical truths, and to adopt a strain beyond the comprehension of a mixed assembly, to obtain the plaudits of a solitary and ecce...

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