The Argonauts in Queensland: A Tale of the Forties. CANTO I. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 12 December 1885

The Argonauts in Queensland: A Tale of the Forties* by Mae. geburn. Canto I. A steamer throbbing on the restless sea, Australia's coast appearing dim and grey, Waves rolling past in never-ceasing glee, Or dashing on the bows in scattered spray Which the good ship spurned off in scorn, as she From Sydney to fair Brisbane cleft her way. And on her deck two men, who walked together, Discussing various topics, wind and weather. One was a tall man, clearly he was older Than he who walked beside him on the planks, Nor was he quite so broad across the shoulder; He seemed a man who'd risen from the ranks. His eyes were keen, and showed the close beholder He'd take his due without a word of thanks. He owned a store, and said so in proud tones, An honest married man, whose name was Jones. What of the other ? Well, let's hear hip speak : He says his name is Jason, that he's here G-lobe trotting, and he means to spend a week Or so in Queensland. This sounds rather queer, For surely Jason was an...

A Haunted Man. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 12 December 1885

A Haunted Man. f* Bo you believe in spirits ? " said a voice close to tay left ear, as I was perusing' the Melbourne Bulletin, not in search of knowledge, but to see how many of my good things it had purloined. " In moderation/' was my answer, without looking up. " I am not talking about whiskey," said the voice. " I mean evil spirits, imps of darkness, demons, call them what you will." I glanced at the speaker and saw a man with a haunted look in his eyes, who was re spectably dressed, save that between his collar and shirt there was a hiatus through which a large extent of sunburnt neck was jp^&le. "I have come from Mackay," continued th^j arker, on purpose to see you," I am haunted by ail f|Bpirit, which has followed me, even to Brisbane, warn safe-from it in this office;" and thrusting^ ^|^own the back of his neck, he pulled up the® buttoned on the collar. I sighed a sigh olf, so small, indeed, that I did not observe to sighdled to, and said " Go on, what is the nij|. Jp...

Virtue is its own and only Reward. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 12 December 1885

Yirtue is its own and only Reward. On Saturday afternoon, the Steamer " Garnet" •was caught in a squall. By the newspapers' account of the affair, it was only through the pluck and energy of the captain and crew, that the vessel was got back safely to Brisbane. The Daily Telegraph goes as far as to say that the wind was so Btrong, that it blew the buttons off the captain's coat, but of course that is blowing it into us a little too strong. I could have believed that the captain was blown away from his buttons, but it would require a good deal to make me believe that the buttons were blown off the captain. Now, 1 personally don't like sea captains* They appear to me, to be very pompous, lazy, self-conceit ed, sea-gods, and never seem, to me, to have to perform any particular duty at all, except in case of Bome accident or storm/ and generally abuse their officers and men and try to mash the. best-looking^le the female passengers, and put on heaps of side to every miserable land-lubbe...

A True Heroine. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 12 December 1885

A Trite Heroine. On a bright morning in the month of March, 1883, the s.s. Tasmanleft Hobart for Melbourne. Soon the passengers began to settle down, and to make each others acquaintance. Among them was a lady of thirty-five with her daughter, & pretty curly-haired native of Australia almost seventeen, with as sweet a face as you would see in a long journey. Close to them, sitting by herself, was a young girl of about fourteen or fifteen, with a face that looked plain, until you saw it in motion, then it spoke volumes^ and lighted up with such a loving smile that it really looked handsome. Such it ap peared to me, as the the girl of seventeen crossed ; over to where she sat, and, after a few words, asked her to come and sit with her mother and self, lhe pleased look, and the bright eyes, spoke at once, now this little get was appreciated, and they became at once intimate. The weather was pleasant, and after breakfast these two girls promenaded the deck, eloquent upon "their ...

Furnishing Exact Returns. THE EDITOR OF FIGARO. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 12 December 1885

Furnishing Exact Returns. The Editor op Figaro. Sir,—It is an old saying that " open confession is good for the soul," so here goes. I believe tlie only serious crime I ever committed, was in ^dming-to Northern Queensland 24 years ago as a pioneer,and engaging in pastoral pursuits, but sis I have suffered, and am still suffering more than the full penalty for my youthful indiscretion and. imprudence, I don't think the Inspector of Stock should add insult to in jury by'threatening us, the stockholders, with all kinds of penalties, if we don't furnish a correctreturn of all stock, etc. by the lst January, 1886. Now, Mr. Editor, I ask you, as the friend of the unfortunate, and therefore, ofa once ; powerful,; but now abused, neglected, and .down-trodden race, how in the name of all that's good, can a man with: stock dead and dying daily, I may say hourly, about.him, state the actual number of stock he possesses now, or on the 1st January?

secretary of Tattersal's Club tells me of the behav-iour of the mayor, who, on being *$|«i to for the use of a couple of watering carts, piined to grant them, in the most (sub) urbane ^nanner. Mr. Bently proposed to find horses and men for the work, and represented that, as Thursday was a holiday, the carts would not be in use in the city, and might very well be employed in making travelling pleasant along the common thoroughfare to both horse and boat races. But, like the deaf adder, 'Babbage stopped his ears, re fused to hear the voice of the charmer, and point blank refused to accommodate the club, or rather ultimately the public in any way. The carts want a holiday I suppose, as well as the horses and drivers j at all events it appears the tired wheels are to get one.

Don Quixote Studies Law. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 12 December 1885

Don Quixote Studies Law. | JThere are enthusiasts still in the world. They do not believe in the formal constructions of society, and are so heretical as to scoff at the growths of constitutional Time. It is because Figaro repre sents every class—has an antidote for every poison keeps a foothold for the most impossible lichens and mosses in the crevices of its rocks—that I now take up a subject, which, as a law-abiding, church going citizen, I should otherwise treat with a serious, impassive face, and with a visible respect. "'"k® palladium of British liberty is " trial by jury." What, then, is the palladium of a circus tent? . There have been cases recently that make men wonder where the preciousness comes in. I am speaking now about the Supreme Court of Morocco, and don't you mistake it. They have got sick and tired of law there. They ache for a little justice. And one of the enthusiasts sends me the filaments of a little scheme he's got by means of which law is to be for ever put...

Salary Grab. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 12 December 1885

Salary Grab. The Melbourne Argus observes:—"Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and the citizens of Victoria ought to feel flattered that Mr. Griffith has just treated the colony of Queensland to a parody of the conflicts between the two Chambers of the Legis lature which gave such an unpleasant notoriety to this colony a few years back. Apparently nothing could be more gratuitous than the attempt to raise a constitutional struggle on so very ignoble a question as a ' salary grab.' Had some great democratic principle been involved, or some popular liberty been in danger, there would have been a better excuse for resorting to the extreme step of a ' tack* to an Appropriation Bill. Mr. Griffith may have believed that this colony needed a great historical and Parlia mentary episode of this kind, in order to place it on an equality with the: big: sister States, but he certainly chose a ratherVshabby incident to 'make history'out of."
