SOUTHERN PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 11 August 1866
SOUTHERN PROGRESS. It must be impossible for any one who j listened to, or for auy one else ?who may Lave read, the sneeches delivered at ibe ii-amway inauguration luncheon at Middleion, to resist the conviction not merely ihat the South is incieasiag in popularity, but thai (here Is at last a disposition amongst those who rule us to render something like justice to a district ihat has been hitherto under the cold shade of indifference and neglect. But all is not gold that gliUers, although, if we are to accept the dictum of our erratic representative, Mr. David Sltheiu.anu, everything has been a'--eadv granted to the South that has been a*ked for, and that mainly because of the extraordinary influence winch he is able to Lrinf to bear upon Ministers. We canuoi, however, concede either of these propositions. Mr. Slt;ji:i:lam- was exceedinglj' unwise in bis attempt at self-glorification to exaggerate what has really been done for the district.

THE LABOR QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 11 August 1866
THE LABOR QUESTION. A characteristic feature of your 'working man's' agitator is that he never asks for work. He will bawl out vulgar personalities as long as stupid crowds will applaud and indulgent j newspapers will foul their columns with bis i nonsense and abuse ; but while weekly offer ings of shillings can be extracted from the surplus wealth of his suflering followers, the ; iools he ought to use will not be permitted to blister his horny palms. He is glib enough j at denouncing employers of labor who pve- j eume to insult his class by offering them work ] at a reasonable wage, and he is skilled in the art of pandering to the worst propensities of, it is to be hoped, the comparatively few working men who are foolish enough to pay 1 any attention to him. Work in its legitimate i sense is as hateful fo him as soap and water \ to a. nigger, and he will invent numberless expedients to avoid it. The ' agitation' ] which has been giving some spasmodic evi- j deuces of vitality in A...

LATEST TELEGRAMS. LATEST MURRAY AND DARLING NEWS. (Via Wentwoitb aud Adelaide.1) fFromour own Correspondents 1 The mailman from Fort Bourke reports a rise of four feet there. It is feared there is not yet a sufficient rise in the Darling to permit of the steamers going up. Splendid rains had been falling at Went' woiih during the week. There is now an abundance of grass up the Darling. Many of the stations on the Darling are nearly out of provisions, and several teams ^ have started with stores. There is, however, an accumulation of stores ready for shipment as soon as the river has risen sufficiently. Letters from a considerable distance above Fort Bourke state the river is rising rapidly. ^ New England rivers were Much swollen, and the Darling and Murray Rivers were muddy.
