THE PROPOSED DINNER TO CAPTAIN EASTON. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 18 May 1867

THE PROPOSED IHNNER TO CAPTAIN EASTON. TO THE EI-rrOR OF THE S'UTIIEE!f ABGC3. Sir — The readers of Don Quixote will remember ! that His Excellency Sancho l'anza was soroly tantalized by the Court physician forbidding him to taste the savory dishes on tlie vice-regal table. Similarly were the good people of this district chagrined and -disappointed by the vacillating course pursued by the caterers for a public dinner to Captain Eastou. Their first instincts or impulses were right, were public spirited, and admirable. An advertisement appeared in our local journal spesifying j time and place for a public dinner, aud placards to j the same effect were duly posted; and the intelligent portion of tbe community hoped that some public benefit might arise from the nublic. aud. therefore. influential, demonstration. The captains of vessels ] then in harbor — practical men — were expected to make some valuable suggestions with regard to the requirements aid improvement of our port, and those...

THE BRITISH CORN MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 18 May 1867

THE BRITISH CORN MARKET. The Home Revs says : — ' The extensive arrivals of wheat having been cleared off, the market has become firmer, and at last market-day an advance of fully 2s. per quarter on floating cargoes was paid. On the spot the market is also firmer both for English and foreign, and prices ab'-ut Is. dearer. The trade in flour has been dull. Canadian brands sell slowly at 26s. to 2Ss. ; and extra fine, 30s. to S2s. Both beaus and peas have met a slow sale without change. Barley is less in demand, and rather easier. Oats have given way about 1 s. per quarter, but have been more in demand during the last few days, and prices close better. Canadian are quoted at 22s. to 25s., according to weights.'

TELEGRAPH AND POLICE STATION FINNISS VALE. TO THE EU1TOK OF THE SOITTIIK1IS AHGC3. !Mr — Allow me to say a word or two respecting t lie proposed Fiuniss Vaiu Telegraph and Police Station. It is now sonic time since Parliament discussed the question, at which time, after a severe debase as I to which was -he Lest site, Glenburn or Finuiss Vale, judgment was given iu favor of the latter. Now, Mr Editor, I wouiii ask to what purpose arc these -warm debates and animated discussion* ? It ! appears to me that after tlity are endi*d tt:e affair 5s I put to one sidu and forgotten. It swins very much j like arguing for argument's s;iku. j When the pciiiion from Flaniss Vale was presented J to Parliament, it was not merely to ascertain which was We in-jst suitable place tor the Government buildings.

THE FENIAN MOVEMENT. IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 18 May 1867

TIIE FENIAN MOVEMENT. IRELAND. The correspondent of the Register writes as follows : — ? There has been another Fenian insurrection, and this time one of somewhat serious aspect, although not very serious consequences. It took place principally on the 5th and 6th February, but dribbled out many days beyond, and for anything we know may be dribbling aw.iy still. There was a very general rising around Dublin, aud hundreds of linendrapers and their assistants left their employers and took part in the movement. At Drogheda the police barrack was attacked. At other places the ponce were overpowered and made prisoners; a coast-guard station was burnt. In many places the police and the Fenians came into collision, and it is stated that three policemen were generally found to be equal to oOO Fenians. Indeed, there is one recorded cafio. of the Drogheda police, numbering 12 individuals, having defeated 1,000 Fenians, which anyone may believe who likes; but I choose not to do so, and bo, I da...

DELIVERY OF THE ENGLISH MAIL AT GOOLWA. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 18 May 1867

DELIVERY OF THE ENGLISH MAIL AT GOOLWA. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHEltS AKGUS. Sir — Having frequently taken particular notice cf the arrival of the English mail, I find in a great many instances that it is received at Goolwa on Saturday nights, and, under the present arrange ment for delivery, is detained until Monday morning, a period of -32 hours after its arrival. This is a great disadvantage, and causes much anxious suspense to the expectant inhabitants of the township and ear rounding districts. Surely tbis injustice iu the retention of important correspondence so many un necessary hours cannot have been observed by the postal authorities, and I ask why we cannot have tbe same privilege accorded us as at. Port Elliot, where it is delivered on tbe night of its arrival. Tbe sacrifice of time and late hoars once a month would not be jrre.it to the posfmaster, as tlie delivery need not occupy a quarter of an hour, and would not be the same inconvenience to him as to the postmaster ...

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 18 May 1867

AMERICA. A Washington correspondent writes that the strength of parties in the 40th Congress, just convened, was tested in the vote for Speaker. The Radical party nominated Mr Colfax, the Democrats Mr Maxwell. For the former there were 127 votes ; for tlie latter, 30. Thirty against 127 is the relative strength of the two sides. But Congress assembles with no less than 17 States un represented, entitled, in the aggregate to SO voter, in the llousc of Representatives, and 34 in the Senate. The body at present meeting in the Capitol may be a CoBgress, but it is not a Congress of the United States. Bv a telegram from New York, dated March 21, through the Atlantic cable, we learn that the new American Congress seems determined to press the Alabama question ; the House of Representatives having instructed the Committee on Foreign Affairs to report why the Alabama claims have not been paid, and {what ought to be done to secure their payment. On St. Patrick's Day several collisions took pl...

Exporters did not for the first few evenings purchase very largely, but the confident tone of the home buyers imparted con fidence, and wool sold freely. The continuance of unfavorable weather for the spring trade, and the supply for immediate require ments being satisfied induced less activity, and a further decline of id. to Id. took place, at which, except for really choice...

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 18 May 1867

AMERICA. A telegram from New York, of March 15, states that British troops had been sent to the Canadian frontier, where a Fenian raid was apprehended. The movements of the troops are said to have been based upon reports from Government detectives. A letter, dated March 2, in the London Standard, from its New York correspondent, contains the subjoined : — ' There is no good reason for doubting that the Fenian ' President' Roberts seriously contemplates a renewal of the movement against Canada. A convention of Fenians who support Roberts has just Been held in Utica, New York. As usual, there was great affectation iof secrecy ; but in fact there was very little to be kept secret. In point of numbers the convention was not formidable ; there were, perhaps, 120 *' delegates' pre sent. But the proceedings were conducted orderly ; the wishes of Roberts were obeyed in every particular, and his suggestions were unanimously adopted. Roberts made no promises of new ' invasions,' nor did he in...
