Aquatics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

Aquatics. • . A boat's crew of the Rockhampton Rowing Club, consisting1 of Q-. Sliaw, W. Or. Thompson, W. O'Neil, and W. Schmidt, went out practising in a string-test gig on Wednesday, June 3rd, when their boat collided with a floating log, and was so damaged that they had to pull for the nearest bank. Even then, being prevented from landing by. the man groves, and the boat being in a sinking condition, they all entered the water and made for the opposite bank, dragging the boat with them. On arrival in town, they despatched another boat to bring the damaged string-test home. The Townsville Bowing Club is commencing to as sume formidable porportions at last. Two sister boats are to be procured from Southland the secre tary notifies that boats will be ready for active members to practise on Saturday afternoons. That is a step in the right direction, and I can almost hear Rockhampton and Maryborough shivering at the mention of such names as Head, Elmslie, Hodel, Gandy, and a few other...

Damns Ritt, one of the Contingent, has written a tumorous little book on the adventures of himself and comrades, from the time of leaving Sydney until the re-embarkation at Suakim. The following are specimens of the style of the author's humor, they being supposed to represent portions of the farewell address of Lord "Wolseley" Woolloomooloo warriors andCoogee chiefs! You are welcomed by General .. graham j and I am not only proud, but thunderingly jflad to say farewell to you." And the conclusion of the%ame, thus:—" Her Majesty is proud of you, and tCareful; of you. I have just received this cable message from her, which refersyou' Keep those blackguards in the rear, and^pretend that it is the of honor, or they'll play old gooseberry among the regulars.'"

Have we not heard him blubber over the wrongs of the outraged Kanaka? . Have we not heard his indignant denunciations ;^bout the atro cities that have been in^ctedupfoi the poor Poly nesian Islanders ? Have we not felt a flush of shame when the Premier of this Colony declared that the late Polynesian Commission's Report had revealed infamies unheard of, even in the annals of the hor rible African Slave Trade ? Have we not seen how he acted upon that Polynesian Commission's Report— how he took a large number of Polynesians, alleged to have been kidnapped, from the plantations on which they were toiling, and shipped them home to. their respective Islands, per the steamer Victoria ?

The Modem Servant Girl. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

The Modem Servant Girl. During every morning call, over every cup of five o'clock tea, wherever ladies congregate most, 1 and there is an absence of the sterner se*, we Iheai always the same dolorous, tale, the iniquity of the1 modern servant girls, and the sufferings of their respective mistresses. .■■■•*! Now, though, we are of course, very fond of all our lady friends, and quite sure that they really believe their servants to be the abandoned and ferocious persons they represent; still, in spite of this, we cannot help wondering what makes them so very ' bad ? Why do we not hear the same complaints from other employers of female labour, the drapers, dress makers, milliners, and hosts of other tradespeople of all: kinds who employ females ? One cannot help wondering why women can work to the satisfaction of their employers in all manner of ways, except as domestic servants. J Now, servants are, as a rule, much better paid than Bhopgirls. A. woman who earns ten shillings a week, an...

When Phergie was speaking in the 'Ouse, during the debate upon ihe Address in Eeply, he made a singular response to an interjection. In the midst of his maunderings, Morehead chipped in with—"We will resume Mt. Morgan." Phergie replied—" The sooner, you do it, the better I " There's patriotism for you! I wonder how his partners in that mountain of gold like it? If Phergie were taken at his wor,d jvhat a host of claims would be pegged out on Mt. Morgan to morrow !

A Rover's Ballad. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

A Rover's Ballad. Come one come all, both great and small, I'll tell you a yarn, by which you may " larn;" And if you mil listen,Til make your eyes glisten, For what I will tell is really no " sell." A football team, is now my theme, Some members of which, more proud than rich, Are doing the "gents" at the Club's expense And gire a " holler," if you ask for their dollar. They go to Club balls, and its concert halls ; It s pic-nics and " swarries," and other " shivorries;" They enjoy themselves well, as many can tell; But if payment is pressed; you'll find them non est. But, alas ! for their larks, these gay younj; sparics Must now do the gents at their own expense; For the Rovers don't mean such conduct to screen, And of all such " trash," will now demand " Cash!"

Thursday Island. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

Thursday Island. It would appear that the advent of the hon. John Douglas to Thursday Island has stimulated social vitality in that land of pearl-shellers, bargees, board ing-house keepers, and Asiatics. Recently, the hon. John was complimented with a dinner, which/it would seem, he has reciprocated with a ball. I judge that this is the case, from the following effusion I have received from a lady correspondent resident in that island of the above-mentioned delights:— The Masher's Ball. " A Ball ? Bring me my robes! A ball!" Such was the hue and cry ; By mashers, belles, by one, by all One night not long gone by. The Residency Halls flew wide, And guests who love a pranqe, Its loneliness then beautified And mingled in gay dance. The Governmental Resident, Of manner dignified, Urbanely to his guests now bent; - His lady at his side. And, oh ! it was a motley throng, With many a matron staid; A few preux chevaliers of song,2? And many a blushing maid. And, 'mongst the motley throng, t...

Etiquette. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

The Chinkie is a despised man, but he can teach us, of Alpine whiteness, a^lesson in humility, after all. This is not in reference to the semi- Australian Celestial, who incontinently collars and washes out the'-mulloek"of: his white brother ; but to the real Chihg ChangChong,ofPekiii.;, This is what I hear of the latter'.—Etiquette requires that in Chinese conversation each should compliment theotherj and everybody belonging to him, in the most laudatory style, and depreciate himself, with all pertaining to ' him, to the lowest possible point. „ The following is no exaggeration, though not the precise words:— " What is your honorable name ?" " My insignifi cant appellation is Wong." " Where is your mag nificent palace?" "My contemptible hut is at Suchau." '1 How many are your illustrious children ?" " My vile, worthless brats are five." " How is the health of your distinguished spouse ?" " My mean, good-for-nothing old woman is well." ■ This is something worth learning. Now, why co...
