DOING THE AMIABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 28 May 1842

DOING TILE AMIABLE. The value of information diffused through the discussion of political questions is too often counterbalanced by the angry feelings they excite; but the mild controversy be- I tween the Launceston Courier and A dver tiser, in retcrence to municipal privileges, has introduced a new era, and illustrated the possibility of softening the shock of conflicting opinions by more than brotherly unanimity of purpose. Ilereafter the friendly editors can divide the questions of the day between them. The Advertiser can take up the position of Joseph I-Hume, and guard the pockets of the people. ilis province will be to demonstrate flinthat a tr thing is a constituent part of a pound : that public lighting and paving may be dis pensed with by the mere general use of lanterns and clogs : he can show that corporations are subject to hunger, and may order a dinner, and use less water than wine: he cnn prove that nothing is so valuable as money: that cash is not to bIe wasted to con...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 28 May 1842

(From our Second Edition.) FATAL ACCIDENT. — A man in the employment of Mr. Hopwood, at Longford, was sent to the mill yesterday morning, in charge of a loaded dray and two valuable horses. In attempting to cross the river, at Fenton's Ford, on his return home, the man and horses were swept away by   the current, and we regret to say, were drowned, before their situation attracted notice.     AN extraordinary statement appears in the Colonial Times, respecting a Launceston insolvent, named Riley, now in gaol. The real facts of the case are very different from the statement made public, but want of space precludes us from pub-   lishing those with which we have been furnished. We will, however, notice the case next week. OATLANDS RACES. — Giovanni, in the race for the Ladies' Purse, fell ; and, we regret to say, his rider, Mr. Maddox, broke his collar bone. IN yesterday's Gazette, we notice the census of 1842, has been published ; a...

DOING THE AMIABLE. The value of information diffused through the discussion of political questions is too often counterbalanced by the angry feelings they excite ; but the mild controversy be- tween the Launceston Courier and Adver- tiser, in reference to municipal privileges, has introduced a new era, and illustrated the possibility of softening the shock of conflicting opinions by more than brotherly unanimity of purpose. Hereafter the friendly editors can divide the questions of the day between them. The Advertiser can take up the position of Joseph Hume, and guard the pockets of the people.

MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 1 June 1842

MISCELLANY. SAGACITY OF A CAT. — It was only a few evenings ago, that one of our worthy neigh- bours, who keeps a shop in Little Under- bank, was much surprised at the conduct of his cat. He was standing in his shop, when pussy put her paws on his trowsers, and en- deavoured to pull him towards the cellar, leading out of the shop. He took no notice at first, but this she repeated three times ; and in order to see what could be the cause of her thus troubling him, he took her in his arms, and carried her into the cellar, where he kept a large quantity of leather. Pussy inmmediately sprang from him, and jumping upon a piece of leather, began to look underneath it, as if in search of some- thing. Her master raised the leather, and he there found a boy of 12 or 14 years of age concealed under it. On bringing the young rascal from his hiding place, he na- turally asked what he was doing there. The reply was, that he had not money to pay for a lodging, and thought he would stay there till...

Whether the prisoners have seized the vessel ; whether she has been driven off the coast, or on it, the length of time that has elapsed since siho sailed from Circular Head is surely a sufficient inducement for either the government or tihe com pany to despatch a vessel in acearch of thie Edward, lher crow, alnd passenlllgerrs, TENDnns for. bills oil the Lords Comm;nlissioners of Iher Mejesty's Treasury at thirty days' sight will be received by the Assistant-Conmnissary General at Hobart Town every Wc.dnesday until firther notico, to the extent of £16,000, in ex change for equal portions of British silver and dollars.
