TEETOTAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 2 May 1842

TEETOTAL MEETING. A public meeting of this Society was held at the Infant School-room, on ' Thursday evening last. Mr. Sherwin first addressed the meeting, and read a letter from the Secretary of the Hobart Town Teetotal Society, announcing its progress, and expressing a desire to co operate with the Launceston Society, in fur thering the great object contemplated — the suppression of the vice ofdrunkenness. Two labouring men then addressed the meeting. They followed the trade of black smiths, and could do their work better, were stronger and more healthy since acting upon the total abstinence principle, than they were before. In every respect they found a great improvement to their health, and of course a corresponding improvement in their pockets. Mr. Edward Nash then rose, and read the following address : — In rising to address this meeting, I have no hesita tion in declaring I am not a teatotaller myself; neither do I think that I ever shall be, feeling within in my own mind tha...

BORROWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 2 May 1842

BORROWERS. This is a very large, but we are not quite sure if we can add, very reputable class. They will doubtless call themselves so, however; but as the point is one that ad mits of dispute, and as we never meddle with disputed points, we shall say nothing on the subject, either for or against, but content ourselves with saying they are a nu merous class; a fact which admits, we presume, of no question. On closely analysing the great body of borrowers, we find it naturally subdividing itself into various smaller bodies ; in. other words, we find tha? the great class of borrowers is made up of different minor classes, all re gulated and actuated, indeed, by one' common principle, but palpably marked and readily distinguishable -from each other. There is the bold borrower, the sneaking borrower, the occasional borrower, the habit and repute borrower (to use a Scotch law phrase,) and the deep designing bor rower. All these are the natural enemies of the rich man's purse : polite and...

Itbeing generally understood that the trial of Edward Beaumont Smith for the forgery of Exchequer Bills, would take place to-day, tbe Court was crowded at au early hour.

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, MAY 2. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 2 May 1842

THE LAUSSGESTQ&I COURIER. MONDAY, MAY 2. An expedition, like that in which Sir John Franklin is indulging, would be nothing if it could be accomplished without difficulty or danger. There is nothing romantic in travel ling upon the high road, and taking meals at an inn. Rocks, hills and stones, caves and caverns, are lar more agreeable objects for the scientific mind ; and a repast which would scarcely be looked at in any established house of entertainment, becomes most delicious, amidst the charms of such scenery. It re quires considerable art to relate these classic adventures with advantage. There must be plenty of exaggeration without falsehood, so as to give a mere rural excursion the appear ance of a fonnidable journey. The official accounts of Sir John's exploring party re mind us of Will Marvel's journey in the country, as related in the Idler. ' He was one of those who did not go out and return with nothing to tell. His story would strike a home-bred citizen with ho...

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

POETRY. THE HONEYMOON. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 9 May 1842

POETRY. THE HONETMOON. (From ihe New Monthly Magazine.) . ' The moon, the moon, so silver and cold, II pi- fickle temper has oft been told, Now shady, now bright and sunny ; Hut, of all the lunar things that change, The one that shows the most fickle and strange, And takes the most eccentric range, Is the moon— so called— of honey I To some a full grown orb revcal'd, As big and as round as Norval's shield, And as bright as a burner 13ude lighted; To olhers;as dull, and dingy, and damp, As any oleaginous lamp. Of the regular old parochial sump, In a London fog benighted. To the loving a bright and constant sphere. 'JTial makes earth's commonest scenes appear All poetic, romantic, and tender, Hanging with jewels a cabbage stump. And investing a common post or a pump, A currant bush, or a gooseberry clump. With a halo of dream-like splendour. A sphere such as shone from Italian skies. In Juliet's dear, dark, liquid eyes, Tipping trees with its argent braveriesj And to couples not favor...

Murray's Review is the only journal tliot lias attempted to justify the Vun Diemen's Land Insurance Company, in resisting payment of Mr. Telley's claim for the insurance effected upon the Paul Pry. rublic rumour ascribes his advocacy of the Company to something more than public prinuiple,i)Ut with his motives we have no concern. He may he .an extensive shareholder — may be assisted by occasional dis counts— or receive other favours, which, out of mere politeness, require a return. In these limes of universal distress, Editors, like other unfortunates, may perliaps be excused for sacri ficing a little principle to a great interest, or purchasing leniency at the cost of consistency.

LATEST INDIAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 9 May 1842

LATEST INDIAN NEWS. By ihe SaiiU George, the 28il- January from Calcutta, we (Zuid Jlfrikaan,) have received papers up to tbe 22nd of January, from \vbic3i several Extracts appear hereundur. The rumour of a ' declaration of war by the Burmese,' is without foundation, although fears are entertained that sonic outbreak will ultimately take place. The display of Thu rawaddie ot a large armed force, und the erec tion of fortifications, have justly excited tbe attention of the Bengal Government, who h&ve sent a considerable force to Moulmain, to be prepared for any ' untoward' event, that may possibly occur. In Afghanistan, however, the advance oi the Indian' force have met a serious check. A Cabul an insurrection look place on the purl of the native guided by some of their chiefs, and headed, it would appear, by Maliumeu Ukhbar Khan, son of Dost Mahomed; on which occasion the Political Agent, Sir Alex.
