TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 28 May 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR, — Permit me through the medium of your rcspectable journal to offer a few remarks on a let- ter which appears in the Chronicle of the 21st instant, purporting to have been written by " An Operative." After a lengthened tirade, in the shape of a preliminary which this self-elected censor of pub- lic measure finds it right to make in vindication of his assumed character, he offers what he appa- rently considers a few very erudite remarks on   the last lecture ; and, no doubt, consoles himself with the very pleasing satisfaction of having finished with a little witticism at the expense of the committee of the Mechanics' Institute. We are informed " that the foundation of all wit is truth ;" presuming this to be the case, what importance can be attached to the assertions of   " An Operative." There is, however, nothing that more betrays a base ungenerous spirit than the giving of secret stabs to a man's reputation,...

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

MIbSCELLANY. A GOOD STony.-One day, a sturdy pea sant in the environs of Evreaux was at work in the field, amidst storm and rain, and went house in the evening thoroughly tired, and drenched to the skin. iIe was met at the house door by his loving wile, who had been at home all day. " Mly 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 somie water from the well, which was at a considerable dis tance. On reaching the house, he found his wife comfotbrtably seated at the fire; then, lifting one bucket after the other, lie poured both onhis kind and considerate part ner. "Now wife," said lie, "you are -quite as wet as 1 anm, so you may as well toich water for yourself; you can't get any wetter."-E'curisions in Nor)mandy. Am...

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

LAUNC'ESTON EXAMINER; Saturday,, May 28, 1842, USURY LAWS. We nay 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 arc commercially impolitic and unjust. In contradicting thus broadly the arguments advanced, we hatis ard nothing but a fair opposition. A col lision of ojiilion is beneficial to society when it elicits important truth, and is never pernicious, except when the limits of lion ourabledebate a're unknown or disregarded. We have admitted the inability of thei colonists to pay the present rates of interest without difficulty and embarrassment. We applaud the efforts of tie press to. soften the rigour of the moneylender, and to pro mote a spirit, of forbearance. To somenic extent they have been successful: biut we are apprehensive that the hope of relief from sudden interposition is delusive--that time, economy, improved cultivation, and foreign capi...
