ROUNDABOUT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 18 August 1883

Oh, there Mas a.little nigger couldn't cut ii decent figure. (Though why a " decent figure " should he " cut" Is a matter beats me liollow; such a thing I cannot swallow, In fact it is quite utterly too tit.) Then there was another man, Joe, went and stole the nigger's .* lanjo, And deprived him of his rosin and catgut; So the nigger up with knuckles and he hit him near the buckles* . , « ! And after that he smote him with his " fut." Now, to mend the t'other's raw bones, why, they took him to a Sawbones, For fees they put. the banjo " up the spout Said the Doc , " This here old-nigger, oh I is a writer for the FIOAHO, -? .. .. .

Liberal? Or Stagnant? [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 25 August 1883

Liberal ?- Or Stagnant ? IT is really wonderful the influence that a popular name will carry. We, ? in Queensland, have seen it in the case of the Stagnant patty who have adopted th6 catch-word, Liberal. Great Britain has afforded another example. Who was the boldest and most progressive Premier of recent times ?-Beaconsfield, who was dubbed a Con servative ! Who themost shrinking and timid and reaMy conservative ?-Gladstone, who stands at the -head qf what is known as the Liberal party! . Some instances of the official acts of the Gladstone Government have, within the last few weeks, brought into prominent- relief the irony of the appellation as far as the "Grand Old Man" is concerned. There was the New Guinea annexation. The " Grand Old Man's" reply was-"Premature." There was the proposal to build a ship railway across the Suez canal. The "Grand Old Man's" reply was - "Premature." It was " Premature" to demand an explanation from France about the Madagascar out rages, until growli...

The two terms which you jcall." abuse,,> had at the time "a fresh local significancegiveri to tliem by ! aivery, proininent politician> and; applied .to the yery paper to which I was addressing myself. In reply, letme^give you-even you-a small piece of; outside opinion, which may be just as much off the track from this distance, as yours was. The art of concen tration is not all literature any more than what many people call blasphemy and a dropping fire of jokes based upon rum, constitute " ridiciule with an under current of satire." I don't speak of blasphemy upon religious grounds at all. But, in my, simplicity, I should think that it wasn't "business" to hurt the feelings of thousands of people whom you desire td get amongst, "by dealing with themes they reverence, ; as tire SairaMonl^ /does'from Ms. There are a C pap^g^fat^ |?iat :#h£|$)$a li...

A Baby Cuckoo. I NEVEB saw a more unblushing piece of cribbage, a more impudent piece of bombast, than the cockalo rum-jig indulged in by the Observer, over this expose anent Griffith's offer of the Speakership to John Douglas. The infant CrossKead takes all the credit to itself, and oil Monday says that Griffith "de nounced the Daily X)bsetver " (!) for publishing a deliberate falsehood. Now, it happens to be, as all Brisbane knows, wide awake FIGARO that drew the cover off that little bit of political intrigue. In my last issue, which was iri the hands of my readers on Friday morning, the whole business was exposed-nob ambiguously, but in set terms, that Griffith had offered Douglas the Speakership.. On . Saturday night, the infant Crosshead came limping in with the tremendous thunderboltthat it was enabled to state that " a certain consideration" had been named. On Monday, the little bantling Cries ** Coek-a-whoojp! See what Fve discovered 1" The most barefaced piece of literary ...
