THE LUNCHEON TO CAPTAIN EASTON. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 25 May 1867
THE LUNCHEON TO CAPTAIN EASTON. TO THE EDITOR OP THE SOUTHEBJJ ARGUS. Sir — The letter in your last issue headed ' Tbe Proposed Dinner to Captain Eastoii,' and signed ' Port Victor,' contains such a number of misre presentations and insinuated calumnies, that it is impossible to let it pass without commeut. If your shoulder is rubbed in the street by a gentleman, you take no notice, but when one is unfortunate enough to come in contact with a sweep, it is advisable to brush off the results of the collision. T shall, there fore, take up the paragraphs of' Porti Victor's ' letter teriatim, and dispose of them as they deserve. His first paragraph insinuates that the ' caterers for the public dinner ' were the same as the givers of the luncheon. This is a misrepresentation. The private luncheon was contemplated before tbe public dinner was commenced or heard of by those who originated the luncheon. There was nothing done by the latter to prevent any number of public dinners being given....

THE BRANDING IMBROGLIO. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 25 May 1867
THE BRANDING IMBROGLIO. We presume that ibe Hon. T. Reynolds is intensely disgusted at the way in which the Sydney Government has ' knuckled under ' to him. The wires had hardly ceased trem bling after the indignant remonstrance he sent through them last week, against the insult offered to the South Australian flag at 'Went- worth, when an humble and apologetic explanation is flashed back to him. New t South Wales presents her compliments, &c., &c, and begs to assure South Australia that no insult was intended in requiring South Australian goods to be branded ' S.A.' be fore they should enter New South Wales territory. It was a mere administrative precaution necessary to prevent confusion in keeping accounts with Victoria, and if South Australia prefers to do the branding at her own port of departure to having her goods un loaded for the purpose at Wentworth, New South Wales has not the slightest objection, but will be happy to render every assistance in her power.
