A semi-official paper publishes the following j account of the attempt made this afternoon upon the j life of the Czar: — I ' It is impossible to describe the feeling of sor- j rowful stupor which spread through the cif v when the news of the attack upon His Majesty was re ceived.

ADELAIDE. Adelaide, June 14. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 16 June 1866
ADELAIDE. JFrom our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, June 14. We are passing a quiet week in Adelaide prepara tory to the excitement — political and convivial — that is to overtake us in a fiw days. The intoxica tion circular agitation bas subsided, the civil servants have fumed and used uncivil language, their nou official friends bave chafed them until they are tired, and we shall hear no more of the subject till i; is introduced in Parliament to adorn acti -Ministerial harangues. I bave sceu the circular, and I must give it as my opinio l that it might fairly be taken as prima facie evidence of inebriety on the par' of the writer. I exceedingly regret that I am unable to send you a copy, or obtain one for myself; but the civil servants, though uncivilly treated, are loyal and devoted to official etique'te. I hear, however, that a copy has gone to Melbourne Punch, and if so he will form a lively and flattering estimate of Ministerial literature in the ' farinaceous village.' Vast pre...

QUEENSLAND. [By Electric Teiegkaph.T [From our own Correspondent. I Brisbane, Friday Evening. There have been heavy rains over the northern districts, Walgett. — Writing under date of May 7, a corre spondent favs : — Tlio weather still continues un broken ; notwithstanding, stock (especially sheep) are looking excellent ; horses are not thriving, of course, upon the same principle, owing to the work they perform ; and the disease, coupled with the distance they are compelled to go back in search of grass, is a preat drawback to cattle. Hut, with the Benson and other disadvantages taken into consideration, the stock arc doing far better than could be expected. Many t-quatters now perceive how advantageous the plan is of stationing sheep cqui-distant between the feed and water, so that they may feed into wa'er one day, and on to the back pastures the following one. Upon this system every flock in the district is look ing as jolly as aldermen ; and i-tunted iambs, dropped in last year'...

LATEST INTELLIGENCE. w ? ?-? LATEST MURRAY AND DARLING NEWS. (Via Wentwoith and Adelaide.) [Bv Electric Telegraph.] I From onr own Correspondent.] Fridav Evening, June 15. The Maranoa may be expected to arrive at Goolwa to-morrow. The Warrego is loading at Blanchetown, but there is no rise there. The Bogan will be the first boat.down with wool from Wentworth. She was preparing to leave there at date of these adrices, and also the Albury. Stilling's correspondents recommend the Government to make arrangements with the captains of the Murray boats for clearing the river of snage. At Wentworth on Sunday last (June 10) the river had risen three inches since the 'previous Friday. There had been the same rise at Euston, but at the latter place had begun to fall again slightly. Higher up the river was still rising, and it was therefore expected the rise would be permanent. There is no news of interest from the Dar ling — uo rain and no rise.
THE WOOL TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 16 June 1866
THE WOOL TRADE. The imr orts of -wool have been unusually large. Tbe ft'-ek en hand, therefore, for the May sales is row equal io 118,' 89 hales, thus composed : — 1 f.,36f- bales from .Sydney. 59 703 from Port Phillip, 3,786 frnm Van Diemen's Land, 14.843 from Adelaide, 6.267 from New Zealand. 2,077 from Swan River, and 13,042 hales from the Cape of Good Hope. There are now about 80,000 bales still afloat from our colonies. The whole of that immense quantity w'.|), it is anticipated, be at hand -within a fortnight from this time. The forthcoming1 sales will there fore I« the largest on record. As a heavy fay has taken plnee in the value of cotton, and as money in the discount market is likely to rule very firm, it is presumed that prices will give way under the pres sure of supply. Much will depend upon the wants of continental houses, and the state of the woollen trade in America. It is well known that the stock of wool in the hands of the manufacturers, both liere and hi France a...

THE CORN TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 16 June 1866
THE CORN TRADE. The supplies of English wheat on sale in our leading markets have been only moderate, and mostly in poor condition. Selected samples have moved eff steadily, and in some instances, the quo tai:ons have had an upward tendency. Low and damp parcels have sold slowly on former terms. For the time of year, the imports of foreigu wheat bave been liberal ; nevertheless, a fair average business has been transacted in it at full prices. Barley, oats, beans, peas, and flour have beeu in very mode rate request. The former article has given way Id. to 2d. per quarter, owing to the close of the malting season. The stocks of English wheat in the hands of our farmers are still large, and there are ample euppiies of foreign in warehouse. Although an im mense consumption is going on, there is very little prospect of risjug markets. Potatoes still continue very abundant and of excellent quality, and the young crops generally are looking well. Oil the Continent the grain trade has rule...
INDIA AND CHINA. CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 16 June 1866
INDIA AND CHINA. CHINA. The rebellion in ttie north continues to assume a Beiious aspect. It is reported that a scheme of telegraphic eoinroa nica'iou with Europe via the Russian settlement is on foo*. The British barque Cassar was attacked by piratical junks off the Asse's Ears, but having met with & vigorous resistance the pirates left her. The state of trade at Tciutsin is most satisfac tory. During the past two years trade has nearly doubled. Matters are going on smoothly in -In pan, arrange ments being concluded most favorably to commerce. The Japanese appear most desirous io please. They have decapitated the man who gave the fatal blow to the French sailor in a drunken squabble, and imprisoned the other ihree — not consonant with our English ideas of justice — the man having given great provocation.

THE SOUTHERN POSTAL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 16 June 1866
THE SOUTHERN POSTAL SERVICE. We are exceedingly glad »o find that the principal metropolitan papers heartily support the claim of this district for a through daily mail. Both the Register and Advertiser have reprinted from the Southern Argus the report of the public meeting held last week at Port Elliot, and -;f the proceedings of the deputation appointed to wait upon the Potmaster General.

MRS. RYVES AND THE ROMANCE OF liOYALTV. IF.om the ilornvui Star.] The ' Romance of Royal' y' is, we believe, as yet a field untiiled, and in al! kindness we commend it to some of the industrious bookmakers of the day. Wo need not go back to another dynasty, nor abroad to ar,othur country, for our materials. Commonplace as the uoli ical history of the Gueloh family has been, their domestic history has not wanted in many instances the painful interest and perplexed intrigue of a modern sensational story ? We allude to the. fOEtranrriinnrv rlaim to the nosition of a Royal Princess advanced by a private, individual, Mi^. Lavinia By ves — a claim which it is probabla will be. brought to a legal issue in the course of next month, and which will theu ba supported by docu ments that establii-u, if they arc gen nine, it must be admitted, a moFt astonishing series of facts; Since the details of the case, whether in the claimant's statement or in tho attempts made to impugn it,, all bear a cer...
