A FOE AND A FRIEND. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 31 March 1866
A FOE AND A FRIEND. A homily appeared in a recent number of the Advertiser, signed ' Your Correspondent Reporter, C. L., Tort Elliot,' iu which some 'astonishing remarks were made about the j Southern Argus. The terms employed were ! terribly portentous, and in some instances almost unpronounceable without drawing breath . 'Tyro animadversion,' u grandiloquent cant of editorial pretension,' ' mimic thunder of (he South,' ' craving mouth of a new-fledged paper iu the hands of his enemies,' are speci mens. We .are not sure we should have been able to sustain the burden of ' C. L.'s' inves tive if we had not been in some measure re freshed by the amusement it afforded us, and even now we shudder at the bare idea of what may have been implied by such a sentence as ' a minute and scientific diagnosis of actual corporeal injury' which occurs in another section of the communication. We have naturally suffered some anxiety as to bow to approach this unmerciful antagonist, but happily a frie...

Sir — The district whose organ y-.u have become, under auspices of much promise, looks t-- y.-u (according to yonr pledge) for a thorough indepen dence on all subjects.

REVELATIONS OF A WORKHOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 31 March 1866
REVELATIONS OF A WORKHOUSE. The Pali-Mall Gazette, by way of showing what the accommodation for the London casual poo/ really is, publishes the narrative of an adventurous man who disguised himself as a pauper and went through the treatment: — At about 9 o'clock on the evening of Monday, tbe 8th January, a neat but unpretentious carriage might have been seen turning cautiuus y from the Keuuingtou-roaii into Ptiuces-road Lambeth. The curtains were closely drawn, and the coachman wore an unu-uallv resnonsihle air. Annroaciiincr a nufaiic house, which retreated a little from the street, he pulled up ; but not so close that the lights thou!d fall upon the carriage door, nor so distant as to unsettle the mind of anyone who chose to imagine that he had halted to drink beer before proceeding to call for the children at a juvenile party. He did not dismount, nor did anyone alight in the usual way- ; but any keen observer who happened to wa:ch his intelligent countenance might have setn a fu...

THE NEW MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 31 March 1866
THE NEAV MINISTRY. By the combined force of accidental circum stances, some good luck, aud undoubted personal ability, Mr Boucaut has had en trusted to him (he really responsible and honorable duty of forming a new administra tion, and he has accomplished the work in less time than most of our older and more ceremonious politicians would have occupied in those delicate negotiations which have come to be associated with the tempo rary exhumation of glossy swallow-tails and irreproachable Jouvins'. We wish we could commend his workmanship as much as we can fairly extol his activity and zeal. But this is impossible. The team Mr Roucaut introduced to His Excellency on Wednesday realizes oar worst fears iu one respect, and only partially affirms our hopes in another. The debut of Mr Aktiiuu Blyth as Chief Secretary presents the unfortunate display of a round manjn a square hole ; and after a careful and serious review of all the circumstances of the case v/e are quite unable to believe t...

The first priz3 wh-iat was o«:-ly beaten in weight by one sample at the Adelaide show, and a 1 the samples were very equal and very -«u|)=nor. The great improvement, however, iu the show, as com pared with laft year, was in horticultural produce. No one tili they had seen it thought it possible such a show could be got up. It fairly took peojile by surprise, and it speaks well for the progress the district is making. The stock. sh..w was very meagre, though many of the animals were superior of their kiud. We should like to see this depart ment made moie interesting. There was a large attendance of the public, an...
