TO COItI1ESIPONDENTS. " Inquirer, of P'ortland Hay." Some of the remarks in his excellent letter lie will find anti cipated in or former numbers. We should, how ever, insert it had we not determined to decline, for the present, all skirn?ishlng upon the question. iArgumnent is degenerating into abuse, refirences to scripture into lasphelly, andl soie advocates of the cause plainly show that they disregard everything bait tihe success of a whnim andla the ex allation of Ithlmselve..

NORTHERN AGRICULTURAT:" REPORT S FOOR MAY. Tlio Important field occupatiois f.tthis season of'the year have been carried on under highly favorable circinimstances.' While some of the jour 1nals have represented the southern districts as suffering, till a late period, under protracted drought, we have been flvourcd with a successilon of rains, commlencing sllficiently early to pIermlit a considerable breadth of land to be sown in ex cellent time anid ill good order. Durllng the last fortngllht muchl rain has thllen, anid as te tmplllr ature has been generally mild, the hay grounds and Cape Iarley are looking strong and promising, while tile young wheat is also making a verygood appearance. If the prlesllt open weather should continle, our young crops will get' winter prolld,' which might be very Conveniently turned to ac count, by running a few scores, or hundreds, of sheep over thel , in proportion to the quantity of land under crop.

TO THE EDITOR OP T'IHl, LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. Sln,-Could you infhrm moe what is the inten. tion of the Town Surveyor in leaving Mar 1ret. street unnoticed and untouched ? After a heavy rain it is quite impassable, being one sheet of water; and not merely water, for when that has gone down, it leaves a quantity of mud, so that, as 1 said cforce, it renders the street Impassable for a week or two. A SUFFERER.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. Slt.-'The thult lays prinicipally with me, in copying the " Tour," not to have infbormed you that it was first published in 1803; which, front the multiplicity of business, you might hltve over looked: but it certainly shows the test of true friendship in your grandmother, to shed so many tears in consequence of a lmcre oversight.

THE CORSAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 4 June 1842
S rTI-IHE CORSAIR.s Thle merchants of Ladncestonlwilo ronall hishor or less conicernedl in the littlheban-loats whIlch iserd to be on the station bheore the stcnaer made her appearance, scent to have received toe liro position very coolly, and we are sorry to see that our contemporary the Laencestoan Exandcr, from whompi we should have expected m tore poubil spirit, is llsy throwing cold water upon the pro ject. It will certainly be a pity If the interests of both communnities are slcrificed for the sake of few selfish individuals. The above appears -in the Port Phillip Patriot of tihe 1th May, but as the editor transferred the whole of our remarks .to his columns, we have no reason to -cdn\ plain of his coImmentary. Our last article admitted the advantage of steam commni nication between this island and Port Phil lip, and pointed out the true reasons which would induce the Launceston merchants to decline a partnership in the Corsair.

THE LECTURE LIST. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 4 June 1842
TIHE LECTURE LIST. It is true a lecturer has withdrawn from the list published by the Mechanics' Insti tute, to avoid the abuse of a newspaper. - We offer no opinion ou his decision. He had a right to prefer his own peace to the gratification of a meeting. Literary mar tyrdom is commenlded but by fiw examples, and but slender rewards. Yet if we are not authorised to dictate the path oft' another, we may express our regret that it should occasion a despicable critic a mo mentary triumph, Could a lecturer cx pect the approbation-even the neutrality -of the Cornwall Chronicle ? . We' may be told it is hard on gentlemen when obeying public solicitation, to he held forth to the ridicule of Goths and Van dais : that those who contribute their quota of money and intelligence should be described as swindlers or tools. We admit it; but it is impossible for that editor to be indil?ferent-for him not to abhor every imaginable association to elevate the in tellect or improve the morals of manki...
