[From the Daily News.] [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 1 June 1867
[From tho Daily Nacs ! In a word, the public feeling goes along with the judicial interpretation of the law in deciding that adultery oiglit to be punished, but the law fixes that it shal be punished through the medium of damaprc?. When we have come to apprehend this, however, we may next reasonably ask whether the nature of the penalty la that which is best fitwd 1o produce the result we desire? It is plain lhat. at least, h does not equalize th position of the man or the woman. She is driven forth as a moral leper, cut off from all kindly intercourse, forbidden in the world's harsh code even the last refuge of the peni teut, the hope of beiug pardoned. But the man pays his money and is free. His name is no sound of reproach, his prospects are not blighted ; in some of the purest circles he may indeed find himself shunned, but he will pro bably think it a full equivalent that in other circles that are still called respectable he bears a species of tacit distinction. Equal justice w...
THE MAXWELL DIVORCE CASE. (Morning Star.) [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 1 June 1867
THE MAXWELL DIVORCE CASE. (Morning Star.) We do not often seek in tlie proceedings of the Divorce Court a subject of commentary. For the most part, indeed, these proceedings disclose nothing but a sickening history of guilt, which has not even the false lustre of romantic or sentimental interest shining on it. ... If we proceed to remark just now upon a case peculiarly painful and revolting, it is entirely because of the illustration it affords of LUC Dualize kuu uuaaitMAULVij nui&tug ui uoi law, and not because of any advantage which we think could arise from enforcing by com mentary the too obvious lesson taught by the case itself. We refer, of course, to the case of Maxwell against Maxwell and Westcar. The story may be very briefly told. Captain Maxwell and Mr Westcar were both military men — both men of means and social position — and they were friends. Captain Maxwell brought his young wife on a visit to Mr Westcar's, and Mr Westcar seduced her. The seduction was accomp...

Never cast a shadow O'-jr the soul of youth ; Leave it iti its trusting faith, Its UKuiiied truth ; Leave it with its buoyant hopes, us iuu|£ujg3 wuu auu ut^p , Let no mournful prophet-voice O'er its thrilling pulses sweep. Teach it not the lesson Of falsehood and of guile, With the traitor's hollow heart, And mocking lip to smile ; Tell it not in accents stern, Of the world's cold lore ; Oh, leave it— leave it yet awhile, On the Dream-laud's lovely shore ! Ye would not steal the richest tint From the glorious crimson rose ; Or the gem of price — that gorgeously In the jewelled circlet glows ; Ye would not make more wearisome The desert's burning way ; Or call the fiery tempest forth, On the tranquil summer day? Too quickly — oh, too quickly, The youthful one will learn. The step...

THE MURDER OF MR 1JOURKE. [From the Ballarat Correspondent of the Argus.] Monday, May 20. i here was general j*y manifested over the town last night whtn the news was brought in by the police that tbe gold and money taken from the murdered Mr Bourke, as also the pistols apparently used by the murderers, had been unearthed in- the paddock attached to George Searle's house. The iock-up and tho newspaper office were besieged by anxious persons.

THE LAND LAWS OF QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 1 June 1867
THE LAND LAWS OF QUEENSAND. There the auction system, with its upset price of £1 per acre, is still retained. Iiut from this system there are excluded certain agricultural reserves, which the Government, at its discretion, is to proclaim in all suitable places, with a guarantee that half the ex tent of such reserve shall be continuously kept in excess of the demand. On these reserves the in rending /settler may purchase farms to the extent of 320 acres, at a fixed price of £1 per acre; the pur chaser of each farm being allowed to rent a con ll^UUUS JlllULLllCliL Ul IU1CC bl 1UC3 113 LJlUGlAb tti ITU. £f«5l acre, within a right of purchase within five years at £1 per acre. Thu3 the object of the Queensland law*— without either free selection or deferred pay ment — is to enable bona fide farmers to buy laud at £1 per acre, and to rent a further quantity with right of purchase.

THE INDUSTRIAL LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 1 June 1867
THE INDUSTRIAL LEAGUE. We have hitherto refrained from alluding to the coterie of frozen out shopkeepers in Ade laide who style themselves the Industrial League, because, not being able to say much good of them, we thought it would be more charitable and Christian -like not to say evil, if it could be avoided. Had they kept out of our way we would have been in no hurry to thrust our selves into theirs. But this expectation of ours is being falsified — the apostles of the League have not had the common sense with which we originally credited them — the common sense, namely, that would have saved them from the absurdity of trying- to force their opinions on a district whose sympathies and interests are totally opposed to them. Will it be believed that the circulars of the Industrial League are at this moment being circulated in this neigh borhood although the very existence of our port is dependent on the maintenance of free trade ? Will it be credited that city politicians have been ...
THE REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 1 June 1867
THE REVIEW. The Volunteer Review took place on the North Park Lands, [at the foot of Montefiore Hill. The Government, with a liberality which had been wanting on former occasions, allowed the expenses of country troops of cavalry, and accordingly there was a larger and better gathering of mounted volunteers than at any former review. Unfor tunately, however, for the volunteers and the spectators, although fortunately for agriculturists and others, copious rains fell on Thursday night and Friday morning, which made the streets very muddy and the Review ground wet and slippery. At an early hour the streets of Adelaide assumed a bu ?y appearance, and the number of red coats and blue coats -which were to be seen lent a military aspect which is not often noticed. At 12 o'clock the populace, aud the volunteers also, began to move towards the Armory, where the companies were to assemble, and where al^o the royal salute was to be urea, xue .aueiaiae .arunery, wnu a nailery or lour guns, wer...
