"THE SOUTHERN ARGUS." [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 30 June 1866
'THE SOUTHERN AfcGUS.' With our present number we initiate an important change in the business arrangements of The Southern Argcs, which we have little doubt will commend itself to the public of the South, for whom this journal exists, and upon whose sympathy and support it must relv for the means of becoming even additionally useful to the district it represents. When the paper was first established it was necessarily doubtful whether it would be ad visable to increase the eize, or to publish it more frequently than once a week, and to cover either of these contingencies the sub scription was fixed at tbe highest ordinary rate. It was, however, promised t&at one of those alterations should be made or that tbe price of the paper should be reduced. We have determined to adopt the alternative, and it will be seen from our business columns that on and after to day tbe rate of subscription will he Eeddced fkoji Six Shillings to Foub Shillings per quarter, and the price per copy ...

THE PARLIAMENT AND MR. JUSTICE BOOTHBY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 30 June 1866
THE PARLIAMENT AND MR. JUSTICE BOOTHBY. Our late telegrams convey the intelligence that the House of Assembly have adopted the address to the Queen for tbe removal of Mr. Justice Boothbv. Mr. Strangways' amend ment to coasider the address in Committee of the whole House was rejected by a majority of 15. The, netition was not forwarded to England by yesterday's mail, as the question as to the form in which the Council will address Her Majesty has yet lo be debated. Their Lordship's have, bowever, agreed that an address, asking for His Hokoh's removal, shall be prepared. An able resume of the debates will be found in our Adelaide corre spondent's letter. A press of matter received shortly before going to press compels us to hold over s second leader. Instances of the procrastination of the Public Works Department are almost too numerous to par ticularize. With abundant pecuniary means, votes passed long ago, and, it is said, much labor unem ployed, it is monstrously shameful that nece...

COMMERCIAL. Sotttiiern Argus Office. Friday Evening, June 29. 1868. There have been very few transactions in local markets during the week, but tbe re openiDg of the Murray trade, which may now be considered accomplished, will necessarily have an inspiriting influence. On Thursday night, tbe Queen, steamer, arrived at Goolwa with a small quantity of wool, and the Went worth is also there. The Bogan and Moolge ?wanke are, we learn by our-telegrams, on their way down, uoin wooi-iau«ii ; nun mere is aisu a prospect of a good rise on the Darling, as 62 hours' heavy soaking rain has fallen there. There has been a transaction in wheat during the week at 6s. 5d., but millers buy very sparingly, and our quotations can scarcely exceed 6s. 3d. Good trussed wheaten hay is worth £6 to £7. There have beea some enquiries for pressed hay during the week for shipment to Wentworth. It may be hoped now that lower prices will soon govern the stock markets, and that a better quality of meat will soon b...
AMATEUR CONCERT AT WILLUNGA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 30 June 1866
AMATEUE CONCERT AT WILLUNGA. On Tuesday evening a concert was given at the Oddfellows' Hall, Willunga, which, so far as music and song conld enhance the enjoyment of the occa sion, was a great success. The weather unfortu nately proving net and stormy, prevented many from attending who otherwise would have been present. The programme was varied, and comprised a choice selection of vocal and instrumental music. One of the most remarkable performances of the evening was that of Master Hall, a precocious musical genius of only ten years of age, who ren dered some very difficult compositions on the piano in a very masterly manner. The Misses Founsett and Mr. Founsett (under whose direction the con cert was ably conducted), saug and played some very charming compositions, amongst others a duet, ' The Wind and the Harp,' and the solo with choros, ' O, Gently Breathe.' Mr. Hall sang some comic songs in a very spirited manner, which were nearly all encored; and Mr. Hutton, besides introduci...

PRESIDENT JOHNSON'S VETO OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 7 July 1866
PRESIDENT JOHNSON'S VETO OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS BILL. 1 From tlie Atw York Herald 1 President Johnson's veto of the Civil Kights Bill is before out readers. They will iaiid it no half-way remonstrance, but a broad, sweeping, and comprehensive rejection o£ the measure. His objections on constitutional grounds exhibit this Bill as involving the most flan-rant -1p.vic.pk for ovprriflino- flin. re served lights of the States in the Legis latures and judicial tribunals ever attempted in Congress. We had supposed this UilJ, in a new shape, a sort of reproduction of the old Fugitive Slave law ; but, under the search ing analysis of Andrew Johnson, it appears a thousand times worse than the rejected Freed jncn's Bureau experiment, and iiothing less than a Bill of uncanstitutional abominations from beginning to end. Tim objections submitted against the first section of the Bill, however, are those which mark the impassable barrier between him and the ruling Kadicals or Congress. He is opposed t...
THE POSITION OF AMERICA.— THE NATIONAL DEBT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 7 July 1866
i. ' .... . ? ? THE POSITION OF AMERICA.— THE NATIONAL DEBT. I From the Nnc lork Tribune.] Our Government owes a great debt ; but the loyal people of tbe United States stand behind that debt, firmly resolved that every prnny of it shall be paid as it falls due. Though we have not yet fully emerged from die. expenses, the embarrassments, the ob pj ructions, of civil war, ive have a. revenue jnore ihan sufficient, to meet our current ex penses, including the interest on our debt. Instead of increasing, we have been reducing that debt for several months past. Congress, instead of being required to devise new taxes, like the Italian Parliament, is studying how suid where it is best to reduce taxation by seventy or eighty millions per annum ; though we intend to pe-severe, not only in paying the interest promptly, but in reducing the principal of our national debt. Our currency is steadily appreciating, because the Govern ment is felt to be strong and its finances pound and healthy- fcve...
MR. CHARLES LOWE VERSUS BENCH, PRESS, AND PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 7 July 1866
MR. CIIAKI ESLOWE VERSUS DENCET, PiiLS?, AND PEOPLE. To be compelled to devote any portion of our ppace to the vaporings of Mr. Charles Lowe is. it wiil be adiidttcd, about as un satisfactcry as the labor we are sometimes constrained to expend in crushing si gadfly. Under ordinary circumstances, wlien our erratic neighbor makes himself ruore tlian commonlv conspicuous, we vary cheerfully give him as wide a berth as possible, and leave him to the wonder and admiration of people who revercrjee mental contortions or pantomimic display. But there are circum stances uinler which even Mr. Lowe may command attention, and require an answer. If he will presume upon the privileges of public speaking in a public j-l-ice, which he enjoys by virtue of his solieitorahip and the forbcaraace of some of the Courts he appears in, to insult the representatives of public institutions, and impute ill faith- to the conservators of order and the administrators of justice, lie must for a moment cr two be !...
