MEXICO. New York, March 20. Advices per steamer Marietta, irom \ era Cruz, show the promised Imperial pacification of the country is as far as ever from realization, and that the Republicans still maintain the contest with the invaders, in nearly all their stations, with stubborn ness and energy. Not the slightest indication of the French to withdraw is yet apparent. Several addi tional fights are recorded. The victory of General Mendez over the Republicans in Michoacan is claimed to have been far more important than was at first reported, and he afterwards had a brilliant re ception at Mortia, in honor thereof. General Mendez says himself that he fought the bands of several chiefs combined ; that he had a hard battle, and that his own losses were severe.

THE SOUTHERN MAIL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 9 June 1866
THE SOUTHERN MAIL SERVICE. The improvement of the southern mail ser vice generally, and the establishment of a through, daily mail between Adelaide and Port Elliot, Port Victor, and Goolwa par ticularly, is a subject of such vital and pressing importance to this district that we are sure our readers will not be surprised that we return to the charge this week. The movement we advocated ia our last issue has been made, and we may fairly hope it will not be without effact. The large and influential meeting held at the Soutltern Argu& office on Wednesday, and the cordial unanimity which prevailed,, must have convinced the Post :mastek-Ge?;eral that whatever other differ ences may exist ia the district, there are, at all events, none at all as to the desirability and necessity of the through mail. We believe, too, that Mr. Lewis is quite sincere in his expressed desire to give the district the postal facilities he admits- it is entitled to, which he says may be accomplished not ...

We take the following from the Atla California of the 26th : — THE ^RESIDENT'S VETO. The National intelligencer has come to be regarded as the President's organ. It bad an editorial yes terday on me own niguts mil, indicating me pro bable points of the Veto Message. It says: — 'This is a Bill to abolish theStaUsof the Union. I To efiect such an object there are but tiro con ditions rc'quired — first, that doubtful Federal powers should be used ; second, that the statute shoal-i be efficiently executed. First, it abolishes tlie State judicature. This is so because it makes a high mis demeanor for any person to deprive any native in habitant of any right secured by this Act. Second, it establishes negro superiority. The proposed statute, as a whole, is grossly uDcoc.«-tituii'naI. There is a class of objections even more serious, be...
THE SESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 9 June 1866
THE SESSION. Bkfoije our next issue is at press Parliament will be in session. It is of course under stood that the ' urgent' affairs which have induced the meeting of our august represen tatives earlier than was contemplated are the j erratic proceedings of Mr. Justice Boothuy. j His Eccentric Honor ha?, no doubt unwittingly, | placed a weapon in the hands of the Ministry ; with which they may fight for their official ! lives with a probability of success that without j hi.s ingenious aid would have been beyond' their fondest hopes. He lias thrust himself into the Ministerial hand in the very welcome, character of the Ace of Trumps, and they will no doubt be shrewd enough to stick to their more-than-was-to-be-hoped-for luck. A Judge hunt, in which Mr. Bootuuy will be the quarry — and we regretfully admit that it is now his appropriate position — wiil be a most popular pastime. The scent will be | keen ; the Chief Secretary will be a benignant ' Master ;' the Attouney Genekal a subt...

THE SOUTHERN MAIL SERVICE. The course we advocated in our last issue to ini tiate the really necessary improvement of the Southern mail service has been adopted so far with very satisfactory results.
