THE POSTAL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 12 May 1866
TDE POSTAL SERVICE. The delays and inefficiency of the existing Southern and Riverine postal By stems consti tute perhaps tbe most serious grievance under which this district suffers. No one disputes the injustice or attempts to palliate the evils it inflicts. The arguments we have used on the subject have been and are constantly being abundantly sustained. Members of Parlia ment, speakers at public dinners, the Chamber of Commerce, and other authorities of vary ing degrees of importance, have all the same tale to tell, and the same remedy to ask for. Even the Postmaster-Gexeral himself confesses to haying been ' for some time desi rous of expediting' our mails ; but the pros pect of increased haste which he affords us is dim and uncertain indeed. We publish in another column an extract from the last rer port of the Committee of the Chamber of Commerce, in which the delays on Southern and Riverine mail routes are specially dealt with. The Committee it seems hare written to the Postm...

ROBBERY OF THE GREAT NORTHERN MAIL, NEAR SINGLETON. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 12 May 1866
ROBBERY OF THE GREAT NORTHERN MAIL, NEAR SINGLETON. [From the Mahland MercurtiA Shortly before dawn on the 16th April the Great Northern mail was robt.ed by threearmed highwayman, wl.o stopped it at Red fost Hill, near Fallbrook, about five miles from tingle; on. The fellows were ou foot when they called upon the driver of the mail to pull up. enforcing their co:nmand by presentirg pis-tols. The driver was then ordered to descend, and the passengers (six in number) to come out of the coach. The orders of the scoundrels were re luctantly obeyed, as Eo-ne of the passengers were armed. The scheme of jobbery was evidently well planned, because the robbers had ropes with them, and with these ropes they tied tbe driver and pas sengers un to trees and tbe fencina bv the roadside. Before dciag so Mr. Morse, of Abiiigdon, New England, endeavored to escape and to pick up a stick to defend himself, when one cf the ruffians seized him, and dealt him two blows with ihe butt end of a pi^o! — one ...

ADELAIDE. Adelaide, May 8. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 12 May 1866
ADELAIDE. [From our own Correspondent J Adelaide. Mav 8. Weather, politics, amusements, and gossip must necessarily form the staple of the letters of a cor responded in Adelaide. Science and the fine arts are cultivated but fitfully and imperfectly, and the instil ntiens formed in their interest are now in a somewhat quiescent state. Almost the otily matter of any interest to South Australian politicians has been the dinner on 2nd May to the East Torrens members — Messrs. Goode and JX. Ulytli. Tnere was a considerable gathering, and the affair went off tolerably well, as those dinners generally do. The occasion was scarcely political; it was more a personal demonstration. The elected of East Torrens have been generally opposed to each other on questions of importance ; but ** the most intelligent district in the colony' could go no longer without a dinner, and all shades of opinions being represented by the two members, the gathering was necessarily cf a catholic, universal characte...
