North of Us. Rockhampton. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

North of Us. By Peter Bunkum. , Rockhampton. (Continued.) Wealth: " The rant is but the guinea stamp, the man's the gow'd for a' that." There are a good many men who Taave made money in B>ockhampton ; hut, as a rule, they go elsewhere to spend it. How they could be so foolish as to leave such an adorable place, is past my comprehension; for Rockhampton is just the identical spot a wealthy man should remain in. There he is looked up to and respected, for his dollars, if for nothing else; while, if he travelles to any other part of the world, and attempts to cut it fat, he only meets with bigger swells, and longer pockets than his own, and, after being made a little god of for years, he will find himself a mere nobody, and the fun he gets for his money will hardly atone for the srubs and the mortification he has to put up with. Fortunately for Rockhampton, there are some of its bloated aristocrats who still stick to the town, though owning a whole mountain of gold. The Mount Morgan...

Australian Allegiance and British Neglect. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

Australian Allegiance and British Neglect. Proofs are plentiful that Great Britain fails to appreciate the duties ahe owes to Australia, Colo nists are still sore over the scurvy way in "which Lord Derby treated them, in connection with New Guinea, but that ia a small matter as compared to the red-tape neglect shown by British officialdom, when the safely of these Colonies was actually menaced during the recent war furore with Bussia. Here is an extract taken from the annual report, for the year ended June 30th, 1885, of CoL trench, Commandant of the Queensland Defence Forces:— " It seems scarcely credible, but it is neverthe less true, that¥ in the middle of April, at a time when the Government were receiving telegrams from the Agent-General to the effect that war was 'inevitable,' a civil official in the War Office "was calmly writing to the Agent-General to the effect that rifles could not be sent out, as the department was engaged in supplying-the English Volunteers. Thus, from ...

SEVENTH LESSON. Advice to the Rouseabout. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

Seventh Lesson. Advice to the Kbugealiout, When you are mustering sheep, stick to a mate, and, when the sun gets warm, lie down under a. tree and playeuchvewith him. It is cruelty to sheep to drive them in the heat of the day. In the afternoon, you can make your horses travel arid get over nearly as much groirad as you would have done, if you liad kept a^itallthe time. ;As long ai,s the horses are sweating ^hen you get Back, no questions will ba raised, and you can talk as you please of the awful work they have done. ; , When you come across a small mob of sheep, leave them and look for a larger lot. Some of the others. may find these afterwards, and it won't be your fault any more than anyone else's, if they are not mustered eventually; whereas, if you come across a big mob and take them in; the overseer will acknowledge that you.liave done well. , Of ,course, you can only act thu3, when the' overseer is hot with you. tt he should be present, your only course is to do what he tells...

Cricket Chatter. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

Cri6ket Chatter. By Mid-off. An eleven selected from the Rover Football Club journeyed to Goodna on Saturday last to measure their strength with the Club representing that dis trict. After a pleasant trip, the Rovers arrived at their destination at 1.30, and after partaking of something to refresh the inner man, proceeded.to the scene of the conflict—the Asylum grounds. Play started shortly before 3 o'clock by old Sam Buxton winning the toss for Goodna. Sam thought it best to send his men to the wickets. The innings opened badly, three being out for five, but Buxton and M'Hugli came to the rescue, and the score mounted gradually. After putting 28 together, the genial man with the beard could not negotiate one from Harry Sykes, and retired amid much enthusiasm. It is not often Buxton scores, but, when he once starts, he can give the field a bit of trouble, though he is well up in years. M'Hugh fell to SykeS also making 14. None of the others got into double figures, and the innings c...

A Statement Challenged. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

A Statement Challenged. Dear Figaro,—A short time ago, you gave your readers an account of a scene, said to have taken place at the Toowong cemetery, viz., — a funeral with a drunken clergyman, and its effects upon the hearts of the sorrowful mourners, &c., &c., finishing up with the information that " Blue-ribbon" Clark was the source of the thrilling account. Now Sir, I know you to be a lover of fair play, and I ask you to assist me, by means of your columns, to bring out the truth of this statement of Clark. To my own knowledge, two clergymen of the Church of England have done their best with that gentle man but to both he has shown the white feather,     and refused to give names, further than saying the " cap did not fit" either of them; which, by-the- way, was only elicited after the use of strong moral uasion; and, having said so much, I understand he exonerated the clergy of the Church of England altogether. Be this as it may, I ask ...
