1050 Miles on Foot. By a. Swagman. [Ail authentic record of a colossal' bluey " expedition from Rockhainpton to Brisbane, via the Barcoo, Nive, and Warrego Rivera,/with deviations on the Peak and Darling Downs; by a "blewed" author.] (Continued.) Messrs. Murphy Bro.'s Northampton Shed. On. a bare plain, three miles wide off the road, this shed stands outlikean immense glistening palace. There were twenty-six shearers " on the board" for the 30,000 sheep to be shorn. "Sit in, Guvnor," said the Slushy, ,fand have some chuck.'* I wanted it, and, although it was decidedly uncere monious, I enjoyed the meal which was offered without any fuss or false politeness. Being Sunday, most of the men were grinding their shears and touching up their springs. Some were " heading 'em " with half-crowns, and others were talking " horse/' Five shearers came that day and failed to obtain work. \ One of these told me he had just ridden 700 miles from tho other side of Winton and had decided to give the ...

Sly-Grog Selling at Thargomindah. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

Sly-Grog Selling at Thargomindah. Most people, at some time or other, have read an | article, " A Plea for the Burglar," but it has'been | reserved for Thar^omindah to produce the author of j " A Plea for the Shanties." The literary merit of the two articles is, of course, as wide asunder as the poles j and there is another very soHd difference in the genius of the two productions. The burglar article was, as Artemup Ward would say, "rote sarkastik." The shanties article is written in a serious and earnest strain, evoked from the actual beliefs of the writer, and is so positively ludicrous that I reproduce it here":— A Plea for the Shanties. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ff HERALD." Sir,—I have on more than one occasion seen remarks in your paper calling for the suppression of shanties in Thargomindah. I do not know that any such things exist, but, if they do, I think it would look a great deal better, and be far more reasonable, to have given your reasons, showing the injury they have done,...

The Situation in Thargomindah. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

The Situation in Thargomindah. Thargomindah is not dead, but sleepeth, That Western town on the far Bulloo seems to have been forgotten V' the Government, and the Thargonians -want to know what their representative/ Teetotal John' Dingo Donaldson, has been about, afldif he has been devoting his attention to Cunnamulla, and leaving them in the lurch. It is even considered doubtful now, whether the great and good S.W.Gr. will consent to change the name of Thargo to the new one, uuniversally adopted locally, of Leahytown. (You must, to be of the fashion of the residents of Thargo, pronounce this M(Lahey»town/') The general reader probably yearns to learn the reason of this change of name locally, and, as this is of more importance tl an news about the revolution in Eastern Eoumelia, I hasten to pour down the parched throat of the yearner the pisori required. The name of Leahy is great in Thargomindah. There are three of it, and it is feared. It is, in fact Thatgomiiidah itself t The Le...

This leniency has often been abused, and yet Davidson gave no sign. But the last straw was placed on the earners back recently when a carrier named Wilkinson1 cataped for five days at Paradise Dam, and then only travelled four miles aiicl a half before camping again. In eight days he only covered twenty-five miles, unwilling, as were our first parents, to leave the precincts of Paradise. But, in view Of the present grass and "water famine, Davidson fe...

THE LATEST AMERICAN INVENTION The Victory of Electricity. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

THE LATEST AMERICAN INVENTION The Victory of, Electricity. Since Electricity has been applied for lighting purposes, all efforts of inventors have been directed to construct a lamp for general domes tic use. The reason why this problem has till now not been solved, is that none of the inven tors could rid themselves of the idea of gas lighting, and that all have adhered to the system of producing the Electricity in some central place, or by large machinery, instead of first laying down the principle that a Lamp which should ever become generally useful ana popular, must be portable like an Oil Lamp, and contain the. generator of Electricity in itself, i.e., in the foot of the Lamp. The Norman Electric Light Co. has at last succeeded in completely realizing this ideal of Electric Lighting, and there is no doubt that this most important invention will bring about a complete revolution in all branches of light ing. Our Electric Lamp needs neither Machinery, Conductors, nor any expenBiv...

Pocketing the Plunder. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

Pocketing the Plunder. The first dividend of the Parliamentary Plunder Company, Unlimited, was paid the other day, when <£7000 was distributed amongst the shareholders. The amount was not very large, only <£200 a head when it came to be divided, and single Members had often before got ten times that amount to their own cheek,, but it was in hard cash—which seemed to give great satisfaction to the recipients. As one re marked when pocketing the cash. " There is nothing like ready money. If you take a bridge or a Railway through your land for your vote, you may have a lot * of trouble to release it, but, with a cheque on the Government bank, you are all serene as long as there is a farthing in the Treasury, for the} 'd have to pay us if they paid no one else." This is true, but still 1 should not wonder if there ;; were some disagreeables sticking to this plunder. There is no rose without a thorn, and even unsophis ticated childhood learns soon how nauseous jalap...

The Imperial Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

The Imperial Elections. Australians are watching1 the general, election now proceeding in Great Britain, with more than ordinary interest. Though a democratic community, Australians, while tied to British apron-strings, favor, for selfish reasons, the reign of the Tory party. Australians, as part of the British Empire, feel shamed and humiliated when British prestfge weakens, when British honour is insulted, and British timidity smooths over the insult by cowardice. It is a mere matter of sentiment—o, traditional sentiment; it scarcely affects our vital interests in reality; but sentiment is a human attri bute all powerful to sway and to operate. It is because we know that the Tories, with their cherished traditions of honor, will never permit Great Britain to be flouted, ignored, or insulted, that we Austra lians—in defiance of our democratic instincts— regard British Toryism with a kindlier eye than British Whig^sm or British. Radicalism. It was thought that the lowering of the Fr...

Something of what Sala thinks. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

Something of what Sala thinks. I remember, when G-eorge Augustus Sala was here, in one of the many chats I had with him, he mentioned to me a queer experience or two he had undergone, during his hurried transit through Aus tralia. He "was constantly receiving confirmation of Tris impression that Australia was "the land of topsy-turvydom." For instance, one evening late, when he was staying at Lennon's magnificent new hotel, he and Mrs. Sala strolled out upon one of the balconies. It was one of our bright Australian moonlight nights, and a peace, almost amounting to stillness, brooded over that part of George-street. Opposite Lennon's is the Supreme Court, with its nicely laid-out gardens, which looked still more en chanting in the silvery and shadowed moonlight.. "I stood," said Sala to me, "upon the balcony, gazing upon the enchanting scene before me. I was explaining to Mrs. Sala that we getting near the tropics now, and was pointing out the tropical flowers and foliage in the gar...

Police Illegalities. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

Police Illegalities. It is an axiom of British taw that "a prisoner is innocent until he be proved guilty." With: the ex ception of the necessity fortius detention " under suspicion,'* J;he has, therefore, all the rights and privileges of an innocent person, so far as those rights and privileges can be accorded him during necessary detention. There is to be no delay in his examination, and in his aquittal or conviction. I have frequently protested against the Brisbane Police Court custom/that had almostbecome habitual during Mr. Pinnock's absencein England, of what I call "an eternal remand?' :i;W^eek after week, some unfortunate devil in ctisipdy would b£ brought before Day, only for the purpose of being " remanded for eight days." The police would intimate that they were " not prepaid to go on with the case, .but we hope to have' evidence* in another week, your Worship." And P. M. Day, looking indifferently through his spectacles, would say, " Remand for eight days." Away went the...

Amending the Land Act. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

Amending the Land Act. Last year the Legislative Assembly occupied about four months of its time in passing the New Land Act.*- The Ministry assured Parliament and the country that the Act was the concentration of all earthly wisdom j an emanation from thei noblest and most virtuous Ministry ever seen. It was a political elixir vitce. Once it was passed there would be no more poor in the land; bad seasons, small-pox, and bad debts would be unknown ; every one would be '' healthy, wealthy, and wiseand as there were some unbelievers amongst its own followers it offered ten millions of public money to be spent in the constituencies of those Members who would say nothing but vote straight for the Bill. Of course, it passed. This year, one of the first jobs the Assembly had to do, was to pass an Act amending this inspired piece of legislation, by permitting selection before survey again in certain localities. And now the Land Board, composed of the creatures ofthe inspired authors of the...

The Warwick Water Supply. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 December 1885

The Warwick Water Supply. Although Warwick is called the " City of the ! Dead," the Warwick people do not want to die before their time; but, at present, they are being slowly poisoned by the Water Committee of the Municipal Council and its engineers. The fluid for which the happy denizens of Warwick are expected to pay ten per eent on their rents to the Council, is of a dark, brownish-green colour; and, when run from the tapB, makes a froth like soap-suds. Its analysis, by the sense of smell,. shews it to be fluid run from the streets, lanes, and back yards of the town, by the late thunder storms, into a hole in the river below the town, from which it is pumped into a reservoir and distributed back again in pipes. -It contains ip solution and suspension the following ingredients Sulphuretted hydrogen, carburetted hydrogen, de composing animal and vegetable remains, and numerous salts, to find names for "which would re quire the services of Professor Pepper.
