POLICE REPORT Friday, May 20. James Goodman fined 5s. for having been drunk. John Groves, an assigned servant, was reprimanded for being drunk when in charge of his master's carriage. . James Arnold, ticket-of-leave, charged with misconduct in his hired service, was discharged. Saturday, May 21. Daniel Cameron, the gardener, who re- sides near the Cataract Hill, was charged with having assaulted Thomas Neville, the publican, with intent to do him some griev- ous bodily harm. The parties had a dis- pute concerning Cameron's bullocks tres- passing on Nevill's property, when Cameron struck Neville a violent blow on the left side of the head with a hand-saw, which cut off part of his ear and fractured the back of his head. The evidence of Dr. Pugh went to prove that the wound was a very dangerous one, and it was extremely doubt- ful if Neville would recover. There were two persons present when the assault was committed. Cameron was remanded. Joseph Iorne, an Iln?ligued servant, was char...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 28 May 1842

PORT PHILLIP.         THE papers were complaining of night auctions as forming a vent for the sale of stolen property. The resident judge says it will be a matter for the consideration of the Legislative Council at the ensuing ses- sion whether night auctions should not be done away with altogether. — Messrs. Mar- zetti's store had been burglariously entered on the 5th instant ; four men were in cus- tody on suspicion of being concerned in the robbery. — A party of burglars attempted to break open Mr. Petrie's stores, on the 3rd inst. but did not succeed. — The proprosed salting company, the prospectus of which appeared lately in the newspapers, never was organised.

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 50,000 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. The conse- quence would be, that Belgium would monopolise the market to the prejudice of the French manufacturer. From the year 1838 the 31st of Decem- ber last there were furnished by the French metal works a quantity of rails sufficient for 193 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 9th inst., that the...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, May 28, 1842. USURY LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 28 May 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER,   Saturday, May 28, 1842. USURY LAWS. We may assure our contemporary at Hobart Town that we are opposed to usury laws, not only from a conviction that they are inoperative where apparently most re- quired, but because they are commercially impolitic and unjust. In contradicting thus broadly the arguments advanced, we haz- ard nothing but a fair opposition. A col- lision of opinion is beneficial to society when it elicits important truth, and is never pernicious, except when the limits of hon- ourable debate are unknown or disregarded. We have admitted the inability of the colonists to pay the present rates of interest without difficulty and embarrassment. We applaud the efforts of the press to soften the rigour of the moneylender, and to pro- mote a spirit of forbearance. To some extent they have been successful : but we are apprehensive that the hope of relief from sudden interposition is delusive — that time, economy, improved cultivation, and for...

MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 28 May 1842

MESCELLANY.   A GOOD STORY. — One day, a sturdy pea- sant in the environs of Evreaux was at work in the field, amidst storm and rain, and went home in the evening thoroughly tired, and drenched to the skin. He was met at the house door by his loving wife, who had been at home all day. " My dear," said she, " it has been raining so hard that I could not fetch water, and so I have not been able to make you any soup. As you are wet through, I shall be obliged to you to fetch me a couple of buckets of water ; you will not get any wetter. " The argument was striking ; so the man took the buckets and fetched stome water from the well, which was at a considerable dis- tance. On reaching the house, he found his wife comfortably seated at the fire ; then, lifting one bucket after the other, he poured both on his kind and considerate part- ner. " Now wife," said he, " you are quite as wet as I am, so you may as well fetch water for yourself ; you can't get any wetter." — Excursio...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 28 May 1842

MECHANICS' 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, and 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...

MISCELLANEOUS. The Martha Ridgeway, from Nelson Haven to Port Nicholson, struck on Barrett's Reef, but got off : she had seven feet of water in her hold when she arrived at Port Nicholson. THE STEAMER " CORSAIR," — Messrs. Pullar Brothers, have received instructions to take this vessel out of the Launceston trade, and to send her on to China forthwith : but as these instruc- tions have evidently been forwarded under the impression that the Corsair was laid up, it is sup- posed, now that she is profitably employed, that, at the recommendation of the agent, she will not be removed, at all events for the present. — Herald. THE " CORSAIR." — The following is an ex- tract from Mr. Raven's letter, the agent of the Corsair at Launceston, dated 4th instant, to Pul- lar, Porter, and Co., of this town :— " Should any reasonable proposition be made, to take in the Corsair's charter I might entertain it upon the understanding of supplying her with coal, and having the agency, either on commissi...
