THE CONVEYANCE OF MAILS AND PASSENGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 21 July 1866

THE CONVEYANCE OF MAILS AND PASSENGERS. Some beneficial results are already beginning to flow from the efforts that have recently been made to obtain a better system for the conveyance of Southern mails and passengers. We understand that the through daily mail to Milang is conceded, and we have also heard it stated that after the 1st ot August a night mail is to run from Willunga to Port Elliot, returning in time to catch the morning mail from Willunga to Adelaide. We can scarcely credit the hitter statement, because the incon venience of such an arrangement would be alitMst tan grotesque to be adopted even by tin1; Post Oflkt*. The fact is the postal diffi culty herw will not. be overcome until a morn ing mail i* tlisjwtcluw! from Adelaide, returning from WilluiiKH in tho afternoon.

A PLEA FOR ODDFELLOWSHIP AND THE WORKING CLASSES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 21 July 1866

A PLEA FO« ODDFELLOWSBIP AND THE WOKKINGr CLASSES. 10 THE EDITOR OF 1IIE SOUTHERN ARGES. ?Sir — If cannot be doubted that the working classes form the mo-t numerous as well as the most important portion of society. They have been well designated as the basis of the social pyramid upon which all the others rest, and by which they are supported. From their ranks have issued at various times the greatest benefactors of mankind — the noblest spirits of their country — the least of whose achievements it has been to render their own names illustrious in all times and in all nation?. They labor in the field and the workshop ; they cultivate, fabricate, and pro duce all that supplies the wants, the comforts, and the luxuries of all ; they are a nation's pride and a nation's strength ; in their welfare we may see the prosperity of a country — in their adversity its decline and destruction. It is to their benefit chiefly that all the other departments of society should be subservient. For the...

This case attracted considerable attention, as it was rumored that tbe prisoner bad proposed to another man that they should murder the prosecutor, and afterwards share his money.

THE METROPOLIS. Adelaide, July 26. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 28 July 1866

THE METROPOLIS. [From our own Correspondent J Adelaide, July 26. Although no one seems to be iinmedialely affected by the mercantile disasters in the old country, yet business is seriously affected, accommodation being much less obtainable than formerly, and speculators cautious to an extreme. There is a lull in raining speculations, and some of the results of prospecting operations are tbe reverse of reassuring. There is a good report from the Lyndoeh Valley gold work ings. From the Sixth Creek we have heard nothing this week ; and the report of the Directors of the Mount Lily is to the effect that the liabilities are £600, the assets nil, and the results uncertain, but not hopeless. A call of £l per share is made payable in two instalments of 10s. each on the 30th July and the 30th September. Wheat is dull at 6s. 2d., and fat stock will hardly keep their price much longer. We have had abundance of Melbourne beef and mutton of fine quality selling this week at from 5d. to 7d. per l...

THE VOLUNTEER MOVEMENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 28 July 1866

THE VOLUNTEER MOVEMENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN ABGCS. Sir — A desire having been evinced bv a number of persons to establish a volunteer corps down here, one of their number was requested to communicate with Colonel Biggs (who was just at the time at Goolwa), asking him to name a day on which he would attend a meeting at Port Victor, for the purpose of arranging for the formation of a company, and not a word has been received in reply. JSovr it seems the Govern ment are anxious to enrol as many volunteers as pos sible, and we find that Encounter Bay aud Goolwa are classified in the regulations as one district : and yet when the Colonel comes down he just goes to the extreme end of the district, never caring apparently whether few or many will serve. It is my opinion if be had visited Port Victor and Port Elliot he would have found a great many willing to enrol. It is a question which has arisen in my mind, consider ing the present state of European affairs, whether tbe Govern...
