AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 May 1861

america;. President Lincoln's inaugural address to Congress will be. road with intense interest throughout tho civilised world. The Re- public which has long been pointed to as the model'forall others is apparently on the eve of a great convulsion. If tho President at- tempts to carry out the policy enunciated in his address, civil and sanguinary war is ine- vitable. The seceding States, eight in num- ber, Texas having joined the Southern Con- federation, are now too powerful to be awed by menaces from a power not too stable it- self, and which is weakened by-secret ene- mies within. President Lincoln tells us that ho has no intention to interfere with tho institution of slavery as it at present ex- ists?he has neither the right nor the incli- nation to do so. Ho will maintain inviolate the right of each State to control its own domestic institutions; lawless invasion of any State or territory by armed forces he de- nounces. By his incoming administration no section is endangered. T...

The Courier. THURSDAY, MAY 23, 1861. The charge of inconsiderate disburse- ment of the public moneys is an old and oft'- repeated one, and has oftcu been found by demagogues and stump orators a most effectual weapon. Any respon- sible ministry may calculate upon having to rebut the accusation, no-matter what care they, may exercise in providing against, it. Entertaining these views, we have not sought thc earliest opportunity of pass- ing a critical opinion upon a department which has been commented upon with considerable freedom in our correspond- ence columns, and which has become a popular conversational topic. But find- ing that no rejoinder has appeared of at all a satisfactory nature, either privately or officially, we cannot avoid tho infer- ence that our Electric Telegraph esti- mates will not bear close scrutiny. Last session £11,000 were voted for   telegraphs; this session £3784 are wanted for salaries and contingencies; and it is proposed to raise by loan £2...
