My Deajbest Kittte,— Byron is the authority for the assertion that the moon isn't half as modest as those who love the sublime make out, but I wouldn't mind betting the author of " Don Juan" a box of gloves that clouds can put the kibosh on Diana any night in the week. I am led to this reckless assertion by a little inci dent that happened last evening, but first you must know that this is a religious neighborhood, and that our neighbors seem, in a vague sort of way, to regard Charley and I as teetotally doomed, because we play euchre while they go to church. Maybe, when I have half-a-score of kids, PU be that way myself, but till then I'm very doubtful if 1 shall care enough for anybodyelse's opinio...

A number of the leading gentlemen Of Norman township were assembled then, At Hely's old Transcontinent Hotel, And they were met to give a last farewell To their old comrade, Walter J. Chick, Who had been called to Brisbane in a click. This Walter, one of Normanton's best friends, Had ever proved and with unselfish ends. As you must know, of course, he held the rank Of local boss of Queensland Nation'l Bank. We all were sore to lose him, and we're stiff If he aint back amongst us in a jiff. The "boys" rolled up, of course, to see the say .done, Amongst 'erii, you perceive would, A. S. Haydon (The Chairman of the Carpentaria Board), J. Forsyth, F. A. Brodie, too, were stoi'ed, While R.

The Right of the Purse. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

The Elglit of the Parse. The Legislative Council placed its elf in an entirely disallowable position when it recently arrogated to itself the right to amend a money Bill--or even the privilege to do bo. Such a position is untenable under the Constitution Act, when interpreted by the Constitutional law of the Goveinment from which Australia has sprung. Several elderly^ legislators, with the tenacity that often characterises the old pioneers of this land, asserted that their right to amend a Money Bill was to be found expressly stated within the four corners of the Constitution Act, and declared that they would never, no, never ! abandon any of their expressly-conferred privileges. This was audacious nonsense. In the first place, there is no expressly-conferred right to amend a Money Bill, granted to the Legis lative Chamber, in the four corners of the Constitu tion Act. There is simply all absence of mention of the fact that the Upper House cannot amend such a Bill. . That is a horse...

" Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be dofie." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1885. Tlie Geographical Society's New Guinea Picnic. Beggars on Horseback; The Sydney Council of the Geographical Society has shown itself to be a Beggar on Horseback. A few months back the members of this Council went cadging round the colonies for subscriptions to enable them to start an Exploring and Scientific Expedition to New Guinea. Queensland was foolish enough to give them JB1000 hard cash, and another £1000 worth of assistance. After the Expedition was despatched, Queenslanders were ready enough to send out-»and did send out— a private expedition, and to risk their lives, on the mere rumour that the members of this Expedition either had been, or were in great danger of being, murdered. The Geographical Society's Expedition feturned to Brisbane last week, and is now safe in Sydney. How did the Sydney Council of the Geographical Society show its gratitude to Queensland fo...

How the Teachers Boycott. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

How the Teachers Boycott. .* . I have been pointing out two or three weak spots j • in our educational system lately, but none of them - are weaker than permitting teachers to use any. j books they choose in their classes. For they <jan. > r r -If Pedagogue Jones has an idea that "McSworter's Puzzles " is the best arithmetic for children to use, or, on account of a bonus from the publishers, tries to think so,; there is nothing on earth to prevent his forcing eTOry chilcl to get one. And, of course, the parents pay. Therfc is a list of books tacked on to the " Govern ment SchooWEegulations,'' which books, teachers are „ advised, ovkj^posed, to get, but there^is no compul sion about it. The regulation is a dead letter, and the choice is left entirely to the teachers, aB many a parent knows to his cost, ^ That this is an utterly bad system I don't think I need\say. Ifc is^o had tjiftt the ojaly wonder is it hasn't beep dfltdted long ago. For the fault isn't "with the tea...

Religion at the Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

Religion at the Elections. I've always been opposed to dragging sectarianism into politics, but when it comes down t© " God or no God," I go with the English Conservatives every time. Not that I am very much of a u Conservative/' for I've always maintained that parties here are turned upside down and that M'llwraith leads the Demo crats, but because, as I said in last Figabo, I believe in religion in the schools, and can make a quick choice between : Religion and Order— IrKeligion and Anarchy. That's where I differ from Chamberlain, the leader of the English Eadicals, although I look upon him as, otherwise, a good man and a strong man, and a man that some day will be Premier of Democratic England. I go with Chamberlain a long way, or rather, would, if he and his ideas were in Queens land ; but, when Chamberlain makes an election cry of " Secular Education," I would plunip " early and often " for— The Bible in the Schools. My reasons for this I gave last week., And I'll not repeat th...

Real enjoyment here you borrow, From my own peculiar way; Christmastide has nought with sorrow, All shall beam with joy to-day.

Death of Sir Peter Scratchley. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

Death of Sir Peter Scratchley. Major General Sir Peter scratchley, Special High Commissioner over the Protectorate of British New Guinea, died on board the steamer Governor Blackall, while that vessel was proceeding from Cooktown to Townsville, on Wednesday last. The cause of death was jungle fever. Sir Peter Scratchley (then Col. Scratchley) first came out to the colonies in 1878, his mission being (in conjunction with Sir W. F.'D. Jervois.the present Governor of New Zealand) to report to the Imperial Government a comprehensive scheme of coastal defence for Australia. He visited all the colonies, in company with Sir W. F. D. Jervois, and made a series of recommendations which have been more or less acted upon by the Imperial Government and by the Governments of the various colonies. In Queens* land, he designed Lytton Fort, at the mouth of the Brisbane river, besides drawing up a general defence scheme for the whole colony. He was afterwards appointed Inspector - General of Golonia...
