Humbug Papers. No. I. BUNYIP LOQUITUR. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 5 September 1863

Pttiukj Iflapers, No. 1. BUNYIP LOQUITUR. On the 21st of January last, I wag roused from a nice little nap I had been taking of a few months' duration, in a soft part of the Seedbed?, by a great shouting from the north, and on putting on my glasses, I could see a vast crowd of human beings, collected in King William-street, Adelaide, whose noise had reached and roused toe. T immediately dispatched a fleet mesenger to the Bed Kangaroo, my accredited agent in the city, to know what is was au aooux, who repuea wrcaour iosb of time, in the following .diplomatic terms— To the Serene Bonyip, ' ; Squatting in the Beeds below, This cometh greeting,- ? From the Bed Kangaroo. The noise that he heareth With Ins big hairy ears, . Is the shout of a crowd, As a Stuart appears. The Stuart with his mates, Some months ago went forth; And he at length has penetrated, To the farthest north. Now he comes back again. AU. the people are expressing ; Their great joy — at the prospect ' ? Of more sheep-run...

Notices to Correspondents. NOTICE.—All communications to be addressed to   the EDITOR OF THE BUNYIP, GAWLER. *** We have been requested to contradict the statement that appeared in one of the dailies that the Ex-Arch Flam is the Editor of the   Bunyip, that gentleman (as will be seen) being only one among our numerous contributors. JONATHAN.—We have heard that the new hotel   in the course of erection on the site of the Old Spot, is to be called the "Mare's Nest." DUSTY BOB.— We believe it was Old Noholes who is reported to have said, that "It was the miller, not the flour, should be well dressed." PSEUDO PHILANTHROP.—You are laboring under     a mistake when you suppose that the Humane Society's medal has been awarded to the Cap'en of the New Burra Burra for rescuing two young ladies from a watery grave during the late floods. On the contrary, he has been   expelled from the Humbug Society, and de- prived...

Humbug Society Proceedings. PAPER BEAD BEFORE THE SOCIETY'S LAST MEETING BY A CANDIDATE FOR ADMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 5 September 1863

Humbug Society Proceedings. PAPER READ BEFORE THE SOCIETY'S LAST MEETING BY A CANDIDATE FOR ADMISSION.   I remember, that when I was a juvenile Patlander, our vernacular for a blow was a "lick." See when our dignity was insulted we threatened to have redress by giving the offender a "lick of a stick," or when boasting of our prowess in some recent mimics of the pugilistic artistes, we told how we "hit him a 'lick' under the short rib" and so on, and according to the peculiar construction of slang language, one who dealt out these "licks" must be a lickster, as one who follows that branch of mercantile trade called huxtery must be a huxter— hence our title.                       Now the memory of this has been revived by reading the other day, that one of this kidney—one of these licksters, has been just elected by the people of s...

NOTICES OF MOTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 5 September 1863

NOTICES OF MOTION. At the last Grand Cabinet Lodge of the above society, various notices of mo- tion were given, (as is usual in kindred societies,) on matters relating to the well being of the colony at large. Such notices of motion were duly reported by our con- temporary the Advertiser, and owing to leave of absence having been granted to the whole members of the lodge the notices of motion lapsed; but by per- mission of the Grand Arch Flam, have now been tabled again for discussion in a Parliamentary Lodge, to be held at Brother Kopke's, on Thursday nest, the 10th inst., when it is expected that the brothers will attend. The following, notices are tabled, viz : — 1. BY THE HON. BROTHER B.T.—That he will move(contingent on his being able,) that in the opinion of this Hon. Society, the most advantageous mode, of conducting, the affairs of the colony, will be to let the management thereof by public tender, for a term of seven or fourteen years, (as may best suit the tenderer), by w...

The Bunyip. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 5 September 1863

The Bunyip WHY the Bunyip?   Because the Bunyip is the true type of Australian Humbug! Go where you will in Australia, the poor benighted blackfellow, if he wishes to astonish you with unheard of marvels, or strike you with supreme terror, raises before you the shadow of the mysterious Bunyip— ever near— ever promising to appear— but ever eluding sight and grasp —true type of Humbug!   Do you find Politicians promising all good to all classes, if only permitted to hold the reins of office— seeking to oust those in power, and to replace them by their own worthy selves—moving votes of no confidence one week, and next week construing an adverse vote in a convenient manner, seeking anxiously for the moats   in others eyes, but neglecting the beams in their own?— then the shadow of the Bunyip is apparent. Do you find merchants in solemn con- clave, resolving, that the safety of the Colony depends upon all restrictions on their own dealings being rem...

THE HON. FRATERNITY OF HUMBUGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 5 September 1863

THE HON. FRATERNITY OF HUMBUGS. The Honorable Fraternity of Humbugs—   better known as the Gawler Humbug Society was first established some years ago by a few energetic humbugs — who, feeling that the society of the Colony, although pervaded thoroughly with genuine Hum- bug principles, yet had up to that time, failed duly to ackowledge the source from whence its prosperity had arisen, deter- mimed to make a strenuous effort to estab- lish a propaganda for its glorious creed. The world knows how completely suc-     cessful such effort has been. There is no society or branch in the Colony but has become embued with its principles, and the time has now come for it to assert its legitimate power on the community, and no longer to hide its light under a bushel ; and in pursuance of this object, the Central   Grand Lodge, held at Brother Kopke's, Gawler, have resolved to establish an organ of communication with the world at large, emanat...

Essay. BY THE EX-ARCH FLAM. HUMBUG: ITS UNDE-DERIVATUR AND DEFINITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 5 September 1863

Essay.   BY THE EX-ARCH FLAM.   HUMBUG: ITS UNDE-DERIVATUR AND DEFINITIONS. The City of Hamburgh was in former times, as now, the seat of extensive commercial dealings with England, chiefly managed by numerous descendants of the Patriarch Israel, who found in that fine and independent emporium, a refuge from persecution, and a busy field for the exercise of their trading ten- dencies, and of that ingenuity, in dealing which distinguished their great ancestor in connection with his unfortunate brother, and his posterity in certain transactions with their by no means wide-awake neighbours, the Egyptians ; which affairs, notwithstanding what that good man Bishop Colenso may say to the contrary, I take to be veritable narrations.   Hamburgh being the greatest trading place of the continent of Europe, naturally attracted trading adventurers from all parts; many of these having, what is very common in trade, the misfortune to possess more capital tha...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 5 September 1863

Local Intelligence. Skilful Surgical Operation— The people of Gawler cannot be too proud of the surgical skill and appliances which their town possesses. An operation of great skill and equal utility, has recently been performed by one of its lead- ing medical men, in the way of removing, by excision, a great gathering of superfluous matter, generally known by the name of 'puff,' from the spinal column of the 'Northern Star.' We believe it is preserved in spirit, so that people must not think it a Humbug.   Infant Legislature — A semi-official notice appears in the advertising columns of the papers in reference to vaccination at the General   Hospital, Adelaide, where the terrible threat is held out, 'That all children not vaccinated before four months old, are liable to a penalty of five pounds.' Where are the poor little dears to get the money from, and what further penalty is reserved for non-payment? Adelaide no longer without Sufficient Protection — Th...

OUR SPECIAL REPORTER AT THE GAWLER AGRICULTURAL AND HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY'S DINNER. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 5 September 1863

OUR SPECIAL REPORTER AT THE   GAWLER AGRICULTURAL AND HOR- TICULTURAL SOCIETY'S DINNER. In consequence of the absence of the Adver- tiser's reporter, which would have rendered the attendance of ours unnecessary, we determined to go to the expense of five shillings for a   ticket, for the ploughing match dinner, and presented the same to one of the most, accredited members of the G. H. S. with instructions that   he was not on any account to exceed two bottles of the Bucksfelde Tokay— as we know what a powerful effect this luscious drink has upon the heads of the Humbug Society in general. The consequence was, that he brought in such a report that we were about to fling it into the fire and dismiss him from our staff at once, under the impression that he had not only neglected our caution with regard to the Tokay, but had actually attempted to humbug us—an   offence which we should justly resent as an infringement of our glorious pr...

Bunbug Society Proceedings. OPENING A NEW LODGE. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 3 October 1863

Utttnlmg Sociclj Iwttebhtgs. OPENING A NEW LODGE. The Flam, assisted by the Twopenny, opened a new lodge of the society at Brother Johnson's, at Willaston Hotel, on Monday evening last ; owing to a kin dred society holding a lecture on the same evening, the attendance was not so large as was expected; however, at the close of the kindred society's lecture, the lecturer the society, appointed by the Flam, and was invited to the society's meeting, where a most sumptuous repast was served up by brother Johnson in his usual style. (He will be fined at the next society's meeting for having humbugged himself in providing a supper, and not getting paid for it.) Hie supper having had ample jus tice done to it, the Flam opened the busi ness of the evening, by pointing out to the brothers the feet, that there were two strangers present, who were desirous of being initiated ; this information was loudly applauded. The first friend initiated was friend 'Hummers;' he was a worthy candidate, and ...

MR. DUTTON AND EDUCATION. "HONORIS CAUSA."—EXHIBITION MEDAL [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 3 October 1863

Mb; DUTTON AND EDUCATION, 'Hoxobis Causa!.

BURRA BURRA. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 3 October 1863

BURBA BtTRRA. (From our own CJortespondent.) I am happy to inform you that the amount of secret and disguised Humbug has diminished considerably here of late, and that only an ordinary amount of that unrighteous leaven is at work in our indus trious community* Our incessant chapel-going and psalm singing, would possibly lead & stranger coming amongst us, to the conclusion that we might have some little hypocrisy afloat amongst us, and the loud tones in which unworthy sinners constantly appeal to Heaven are possibly not in accordance with the maxim of, the Ancient Father of the Church who said 'pUorant tacit*'* — 'Holy Men pray silently' — hut a short residence will convince him that that vice and someamount of the ''nipping trick' are counterbalanced by an air of quiet and sedateness amongst pur working classes that contrasts very favorably with some other places, where our great Society has a firmer footing, and where there is less prayer and little psalm-singing—where Mars...
