MINISTERIAL DIFFICULTIES. GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 27 April 1867
MINISTERIAL DIFFICULTIES. On Wednesday afternoon Mr Boucaut ten dered to liis Excellency his resignation of the office of Attorney-General, and on Thurs day morning the vacant pest was ofered to Mr R. B. Andrews ; but, as might have been anticipated, that ganllernan declined the honor. Mr Andrews has certainly proved himself to be one of the very last who would accept an office, however enviable it might be, without regard to the decencies of Parliamentary action. The last Ministry of which he was a member was ejected from office by a direct vote of the Assembly, and Mr Baueaut suc ceeded him. It ought, therefore, to have been evident to men of any conception of character at all that Mr Andrews would not consent io replace Mr Boucaut in conjunction with that j gentleman's colleagues, and necsssarily in opposition to his own old confreres, whenever another shuffle of the Ministerial pack might become expedient. However, the offer was made, and Mr Andrews' prompt refusal to accept it ...

THE ST. JUDE'S TEA MEETING AND LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 27 April 1867
THE ST. JUDE'S TEA MEETING AND LECTURE. On Easter Monday there was quite a gathering at Port Eiiiot of the members of the Churcli of England congregations of the district and their friends. The attraction ?which brought so many people together was the combined one of a tea meeting at the Court Hou.se and a soirto at Smallacombe's Assembly Eooms, in aid , we believe, of a fnnd for addiiw a ' study' to the Port Elliot Parsonage and providing new lamps for the church. Special tracks arrived from both Goolwa and Victor Harbor, ca-h well fi'.lcd with visitors, and a very respectable iuflux of buggies snd equestrians gave additions! animation to our pleasant township. We did not participate in the delicacies provided in the Court-House, but the reputations of the lair caterers for the beverage which cheers bnt not inebriates is a sufficient guarantee for the quality of the feast. The nmount lealized by admission, at Is. 6d. per head, was £1 1 13s. 4-J. ; and so if some of our juvenile rea...

STRATHALBYN. Strathalbyn, April 23. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 27 April 1867
STRATHALBYN. I From our own Correspondent.] Strathalbyn, April 23. A return match was fired on Friday last in the Strathalbyn Range, between six of the City and six of the Strathalbj'n Rifle Clubs. The first match of this series was fired in Adelaide, in August last, when it will, I dare say, be remembered that our Club won, but on the present occasion the City have won by four points, their aggregate being 727, Strath albyn 723. The morning was a lovely one — cloudy,1 but a clear atmosphere, no puffing winds, but a gentle fanning breeze, just suffi cient to bear away the smoke from the midst of the firing party. This weather continued until about the close of the contest at 600 yards, when for the compensation of the match at 800 yards, tke clouds, which had veiled the sun, dispersed, and the day was bright and beautiful, so that those who preferred a dull horizon had, when in the act of firing, to be shaded.
