Source - the Hobart Town Courier, reported arrivals and departures from Launceston for Port Phillip Colonial Times, The Sydney Monitor (NSW : 1828-1838)
The Sydney newspapers received copies of papers from Hobart and Launceston, and printed extracts of news, including shipping. The Sydney Monitor; The Sydney Herald; SGA - The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser;

I started this project started in 2008, and Internet resources have changed. Trove now has many more newspapers online, and their 'Advanced Search' improves each time someone checks and corrects a reference.
Comment on 6 Aug 2013 - Today I can not find the list of passengers on the 'John Dunscomb' for 1 Jan 1837. An example of my inadequate referencing - or the problem of sifting and trying to get a balance within web page limits, plus what can be stored in a spreadsheet of data.

The Sydney Herald, Fri 20th January 1837, notes that last nights Government Gazette contains a notce that the Gaol in Port Phillip is to be under the control of the Sherrif, the same as the other Gaols in the Colony are.
