The latter was expected on the 16*h, but was delayed by the breaking down of the Masilia in tbe Mediterranean. The Reform debate has occupied the chief atten tion of Parliament and the public. It has extended over eight nights. AU the leading statesmen and speakers have addressed the House. It passed by a majority of 5 only; Ayes 318, Noes 313. Mr. Gladstone, in the Easter recess, visited Liverpool, and delivered two speeches in favor of Reform. Meetings have been held all over the kingdom in favor of the Government Bill. More than 100 meetings were held in less than a week. There is not much excitement amongst the people, but apparently, great determination to have the Bill pa-=«ed.

CORRESPONDENCE. ♦ — ? — LEGAL AMENITIES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHEnX AKRCS.

The dispute about the well is now cleared up, and therefore does not need me to refer to it again. The part of the proceedings that I have to com pla...

OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 16 June 1866
OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. TnE third session of the fourth Parliament of South Australia was opened yesterday, and we print His Excellency's speech in full in another column. Contrary to general expec tation, the Ministry do not propose to go on with the general business of the country at present, but merely to settle matters with Mr Justice Boothky, and rectify the mistake of last session about the Strathalbyn Tramway Bill. There appears to be no indecision as to their course with reference to the Judge. The allusions to H?s Hoxor's obstructiveness are sufficiently explicit in the Governor's speech, and we learn from a telegram received late last night that Committees have been appointed in both Houses to prepare addresses to i;he Queen, praying for Mr. BooTnnv's removal froin the Bench. Certainly nothing less than this will satisfy the country or restore public confidence in the adminis tration of justice in the Supreme Court; but we mav infer that Mr. Boothby's sympathizers will batt...

SOCIAL SCANDAL. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 16 June 1866
SOCIAL SCANDAL. There is a vice in the world which pharisees and sinners by common consent and mutual sympathy have agreed to designate the sqcial evil. Anywhere between the poles an observer of life as it is in this terres:ial sphere may detect the. placid hypocrisy which seeks to ignore its own special deformities in the conspicuousness it attaches to a particular guilt in which it may or may not participate. The mythical personage commonly denomi nated the Devil is admitted to be cunning of device, and truth to say he is tutor to some apt pupils. But his art sometimes reveals itself. Scandalmongers — the very flower of the devil's artistic corps — are sometimes hoisted on their own petards. They don't always succeed in absorbing their own hideousness in the monstrosities they eagerly insinuate, but dare not openly assert, against other people. But they do instil a moral poison into most ears that listen to them. While they denounce one fault of the world they propagate what we ch...
