But the laundress learnt that Louis bad already received a thousand thakrs, which he bad carried off and secured, no one knew where. To her questions he at first hesitated, then denied the fact, and finished by becoming embarrassed. There was no longer any doubt that L«uis had deceived her, and she therefore dogged his footsteps. Nearly every day Louis was in the habit of going ...

THE SOUTHERN MAIL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 2 June 1866
THE SOUTHERN MAIL SERVICE. Fok years past \he mail eerviee of the South ha3 been a standing grievance. The delays, unparallelled \n any other distiict of the colony, which have stuck like barnacles to our postal communication with the metropolis have been justly and vigorously condemned by public writers and public speakers — bv representatives in Parliament and Ministers in office. The Chamber of Commerce has memo rialized the Government on the. subject ; prac tical observers of administrative abuses have expounded the unnecessary evils of the sys tem ; every ono in the remotest degree in terested has suffered individually; the com mercial prosperity of the South has been 6eriously retarded ; and South Aus tralian, supremacy on the Murray and the Darling has been imperilled. All of these injurious results are confessed. Neither the Chiek Secretahv, nor the Postmaster General, nor any one else, has an apology to oft'er for them, except that Mr. Rounsevell | has got a contract which ...

EXPERIENCES OF A REAL CASUAL. [Temple Bar.] [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 2 June 1866
EXPERIENCES OF A REAL CASUAL. [Temple Bar.} You get a bath at Poplar Workhouse just the same as at Lambeth, and arc provided with a shirt also — a very rough one, made of canvas I should think. The bath is very clean, aud I don't think they bathe ab; ve two or three in one water. You run up some stone s eps as usual, and wait in bed until your snpper is brought, which consists, at this place, of six ounces of bread only. You have two rugs, and in every respect it is similar to the regular ward of Lambeth Workhouse. Iu the morning you pLk 1 1b. of oakum, and get for breakfast six ounces of bread av d one pint of good cruel. The gruel is much b- tter than at Lambeth, but you will s,_ ; it is not given at night also. In thia respect Poplar has not complied with the dietary agreed to in St. Martin's h L If the oakum is not picked you arc kept four hours after breakfast, which means until about 12 o'clock. Take it all in all, though, Poplar Work house is very good, although from the poli...

EXTRAORDINARY TRIAL FOR MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 2 June 1866
EXTRAORDINARY TRIAL FOR MURDER. The Benton (111.) Standard relates the following s'ory of a trial for murder : — A' few weeks since, wenoticed the fact of the finding of a human skeleton in the woods, about two miles east of this piece, by Mr. Benjamin Wiiliams, aud of the verdict of the jury of icquest, designating the skeleton as the remains of a man by the name of Henry Mahorn, and implicating David Williams, a eon of Beriamin Williams, as the murderer. Tbe circumstances surrounding the case were strongly against the accused, as the missing voung man was last seen in this community about a year ago, in com pany w:th Williams, en their way to enlist in thcarmv as substitutes. The accused, after an absence of a few weeks, returned home alone, stating that his comrade, neury Maborn, had enlisted in the 10 th regi ment of Missouri infantry. This appeared plausible at the time, and Hcury Mahorn was almost entirely forgotten by our citizens until tbe finding of the skeleton in the wood...

ADELAIDE. Adelaide, May 31. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 2 June 1866
ADELAIDE. 1 From our own Correspondent. 1 Adelaide, May 31. My last letter was written on the 24th — a day distinguished from all other anniversaries of the birth of Her Majesty by the extremely quiet, un demonstrative manner in which the proverbial loyalty of Sonth Australians was exhibited. This resulted principally from the disbanding of the volunteer force, and the consequent absence of the usual military display on the Park Lands, and the appearance of groups and troops of volunteers iu their uniforms parading our streets. I regret to say K.llalt 'LUC CUlVllUVUb raw**, gv^o \JU. IC1J QlUnly. ± JJC old volunteers think they have performed their duty, and drilled and fired long enough, and fresli hands do not offer themselves.
