THE SOUTHERN POSTAL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 7 April 1866
TIIE SOUTHERN POSTAL SERVICE. &nbsp; &nbsp; Of all the grievances under which the Southern &nbsp; District has suffered, patiently if not un- &nbsp; complainingly, we challenge the mention of &nbsp; &nbsp; one more glaringly absurd in its character, &nbsp; &nbsp; more injurious in its results, or more easily to &nbsp; &nbsp; be remedied withal, than the arrangements &nbsp; &nbsp; which prevail for the transmission of the &nbsp; Southern mails. The proposition may be very easily demonstrated. Twenty hours are oc- cupied in the transmission of letters from Adelaide to Port Elliot, and as eight hours would, under reasonably proper management, be amply sufficient for the purpose, that &nbsp; arrangement is in the highest degree absurd. Again, eight and sometimes nine days are occupied in carrying letters from the Southern ports to Wentworth, while the very much &nbsp; ...

ROME. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 14 April 1866
HOME. Cardinal Anfonelli, in a circular despatch con cerning the consequences to the Holy See of the carrying out of the September Convention, declares that his Government had no share in the stipulations of that treaty, and will take no part in putting them into force. Their eff ct will be to surround Rome with 'an iron ring of revolution,' and to render the Pope helpless in the midst t,f e-emies. He declines to place faith in the honor of Italy, and but little in tbe protection of France. As for the employment of foreign Iroops, the state of the Roman treasury most pjae-o such a resource within very narrow bounds. The Cardinal ends by saying that if the Pope should fail to maintain order,' and avert evils from tho Chnrch, the responsibility of his failure will lie at the doors of those who have paralysed his ana.

LATEST INTELLIGENCE. AMERICA. [From the Home News 1 We have intelligence f.'ora New Y.tIc to the 15th February. Eight members of the Yn ginian Legis lature waited the preceding day upon President Johnson, and presented a resolution from the Vir ginian Assembly, proclaiming the loyalty of the State, and endorsing die curse pursued by Mr. Johnson. The delegates addressed tha President, saying that Virginia would abide by tho results of the war, including the abolition of slavery and the recognition of the necessity for tho perpetuation of the Union. Towards frecdmeu the people of Vir ginia felt only kindness and sympathy. The Presi dent stood between the South ai;d danger, by defending the Constitution from violation or innova tion. The President responded, saying that mutual confidence and forbearance must be exercised, and that the psople of the S -uth were entitled to repre sentation whenever they sent loyal representatives ; only loyal men should exercise political power.

IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 14 April 1866
IMMIGRATION. We alluded in our last issue to the absolute and undoubted necessity which exists for the extension of our system of national immigra tion, and that appropriately enough introduces the question of its general improvement. The very few and eccentric people who continue to urge ill-considered and illogical arguments against immigration constitute such an insig nificant minority in the colony that it would be a waste of tinse to combat the assertions they make with an obstinacy which hardens as their futility becomes every day more apparent. We might fairly point to the BakEOWS^ SOLOMONS, TOWSSESDS, BoCCATJTS, and Clakks of a few years back — who from being the platform apostles of ' no immi gration,' hare become the wannest advo cates of the expenditure of a portion of the land fund upon the introduction of labor to the colony — as remarkable instances of the change of public opinion en this ques tion. J3iit as ihe case stands argument is unnecessary. It is sufficient to ...

POST OFFICE EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 14 April 1866
POST OFFICE EXPEDITION. We have received a complaint from our Mount Barker agent respecting the postal delivery of the Southern Argus in that township. He states that the paper is never delivered there izntil three days after publication, and that last week his copies did not arrive until Wed nesday evening. This is a very serious impu tation upon the efficiency of the Post Office, and is calculated to inflict material injustice upon us, and disappointment, if not actual loss, upon our readers at Mount Barker. We shall seek an explanation from ihe authorities in Adelaide, and in the meantime we can only express our extreme regret that such iniqui tous delay should be possible. The Southern Argus is published at Port Elliot every Satur day inorniHg, and is posted for all distant places in time for ihe mails closing on the same day. Even under the wretchedly dila- I tory mail arrangements whicV exist now. the t delivery of the paper in Mount Barker ought never to be delayed beyond Mon...
