AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 19 August 1864
AMERICA. Our latest advices from New York are to June 15. The army of the Potomac had again changed its front; and while leaving enough force in entrenchments in front of General Lee's inexpugnable posi tion, had shifted its centre of operations from the north-east to the south-east of Richmond. This brings Grant into im mediate contiguity with Butler's army, which is in a strongly fortified pIosition at Bermuda Hundred, a peninsula on the James River, and gives him the support of the Federal grunboats and Monitors. The only danger in the case was that Lee may break through the Federal lines on Chickahominy, now weakened by the change of front, and make a rapid dash on Washington. In the meanwhile the Fed eral General Burbildge has d'feated the Confederate guerilla chief Morgan, and taken from him 1000 horses, after killing 600 men; but, on.the other hand, the Federal-General Sturgiss in conmmand of the Memphis expedition has been defeated by the Confederate General Forrest, in Tenn...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 19 August 1864
THE arrogance of "leading colonists" is proverbial; it is the result of a very natural cause. They generally leave Great Britain with very little money, but are, in most cases, prompted to what is sometimes called a voluntary exile by an intense desire to acquire wealth. Nothing is permitted to stand in the way of reaching the object of their ambition, and they reach it at last. It matters not to them what means they em ployed, whether keeping a brothel, prosti tuting the columns of a leading journal, by land swindles, or" lucky speculations, they have the money, but happiness recedes as they advance. They retrace their steps to England; they avoid Cape Horn, of course, by forwarding themselves overland, rid Suez. Their time on the passage is con sumed in. studying the best means of "astonishing the Browns" when they arrive. Like the old Nabobs of India who grew rich by divers tricks in the Carnatic or Bengal, the leading colonists, struggle hard to attract the attention of the mill...
