SYDNEY— April 2. Wheat. — There has been a considerable quantity of wheat brought to market during the week, and fair prices have been obtained.

MISLAYING AN IDEA; OR A SLY INQUIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 25 April 1842

MISLAYING AN IDEA; or A SLY INQUIRY. Our friend ? , whom we must be allowed to introduce under the name ,of Zigzag, would be one of the best story-tellers .in -the world, but for one trifling disqualification — lie cannot tellliLs story. He starts with tbe best intentions, but is so severely afflicted with, what we will call anffls sodativeness of ideas, the first begetting a second, the second a third, and so on to the twentieth and the fiftieth, that, in the confusion, the original idea is mislaid. He purposes to describe to you the launch of the Trafalgar, which he witnessed the other day, but before he has proceeded half way through his first sentence, he, by some strange process of thinking, is off to the Pyramids, back again to the British Museum, thence to a white bait party at Greenwich, which reminds him of Voltaire, Julius Caesar, and the Thames Tunnel, whence he emerges to appear at Naples, ?' Nova Zcmbla, or the Lord knows where !' We met him the other day near . the Duk...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, APRIL 25 [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 25 April 1842

THE LAUNOESTON COURIER. MONDAY, APRIL 25 The public will learn from our advertising columns, thai the efforts of the provisional Committee appointed to make the necesary arrangements for establishing a Mechanics' Institute have been crowned with complete success. We can ascribe the opposition of the Chronicle to nothing but au over sensi tiveness of approaching danger; the public know well that the Chronicle has always been a strong advocate for the promotion of science and the encouragement of the fine arts; besides »'c cannot suppose for a moment, that a person who writes doggerel to amuse himself, and etches caricatures for the benefit of the public, can possibly be opposed to the principle of a Mechanics' Institute. But the Chronicle has a perfect aversion to sinecures and monopo lies; he would sooner have his enemies hanged than see them filling a place of emolument. Accordingly, however laudable the objects contemplated, may be, however much conclu sive to the public good, the...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 25 April 1842

TO THE EDITOR Otf THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. tiu, Under the present aspect of things, when there seems to be a decided spirit prevailing in the colonies to claim for themselves, their legitimate political position, permit me to ssbthe following questions : — 1st— Why should not the colonies have their members in the House of Commons? 2nd. ? Why should not tbe colonies have their Elective Council to tike ?care of their interests, and to provide for their own legislative and ciecutire arrangements? 3rd ? Why should not the colonists elect their ' Go vernor,' and their own ministers of public affairs, and their own public officers? That British subjects of the colonies are awakening here and there, to a seme of their legitimate claims, is evidenced in tbe 'petitions' that have been drawn up, to sue for at least something in the shape of selfgovern ment, and for tome degree of immunity from that despotic rule which allows to colonists not so much as the phantom of a voice in (he management...

To mingle in the world, and learn its ways: Think of the lessons given in early days, And be not tbou beguiled From the right path ?

Thy mother weeps to see Her darling child thus from her care depart: And oh. how often will thy father's heart In absence yearn for thec ! Many a fond prayer, and many an anxious thought, Will be, ray child, with thy remembrance fraught. God bless thce t dearest one I Be watchful— strive thy duties to fulfil— Pray foi his grace to guide in good and ill ; And, when from earth I'm gone, I-et a fond father's parting precepts be Treasured for ever in thy...

TO THE ED1TOH OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. Sib, Your last number contains tan article on Tce-totalism, which forces me to exclaim, ' save me from my friends, J will take care of my enemies.' As a public journalist you fill a most important station in so ciety, and as your doctrine «n this subject appear to me in'nnnpu a mnci Hnntrprhns'iGndencv. 1 crave the inser tion of a few remarks as a counteractive; my or.lv motive like yonr own, being to promote in the most ef ficient manner the cause of sobriety. Excluding all discussion on the contents of Scrip ture, I observe— First, you have fallen into an error at the outset. The Tee-tolallers do not, as a Society, ar gue, that ' we should abandon the 'moderate system, because it often leads to excess. ' Their argument is, that alcohol is proved physiologically, to have an inju rious effect always on the human system, from its very nature. The extent of the injury being depen. dent on tbe individual constitution, and tbe quantity swallowed....
