Suedliche Post

by H. G. Jones, 2006

The Suedliche Post (Southern Post) was a short-lived German-language newspaper founded in Goldsboro in 1869 by August Heinrich Christian Julius Bonitz (who usually signed his name Julius A. Bonitz). The newspaper sought to benefit the substantial number of German-speaking residents in the area. Bonitz, a native of Clausthal-Zellerfeld, Germany, had settled in Goldsboro, where he published the successful English-language papers Daily Rough Notes and the Messenger, both stoutly "advocating the supremacy of the white race." In addition, he was agent for the Carolina Immigration Association, which encouraged foreigners to buy land in North Carolina; the Die Suedliche Post was its "adopted organ." Only three issues of the paper are known to be preserved; the last (number 9) was dated 27 Nov. 1869.
