Cricket in Brisbane. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 10 February 1883

_ Cricket in Brisbane. THE visit of the Hon. IvoBUgh's team to Brisbane has taught us an. important lesson j and that is, that our local cricket is not worthy .of-the name. Our eighteen has got the worst thrashing which has been recorded the tour of the victorious team. In iio department of tlie game did our< men show more than mediocrity; while our, batting was an exhibition of abject incapacity. An average!iof ?three runs per wicket is our record and speaks for itself . "Our field ing at-first was respectable, Gregory's and Scott's ?.patches were good ones j but before the day mbs oyer, our teaui;: .would have been surpassed Ay " many a schoolboy eleven in England or tlie Souther^ Colonies. Some of our bowling was good, notably Wearne's and Hobbs'j who between them got nearly attr|hejvickets. As for the rest, the less said about it the better,- The pitch was all in favour of the bowlers^ ai^ Englishmen made well tin to 300 runs. This, is as good a performance as 500 on ...

Immediately after the start, Uhlmann dashed off and obtained a slight lead-both pulling somewhat wildly; off Hogan's sawmills he had a lead of about two lengths; shortly before reaching the Brisbane Bowing Club's boat house, O'Sullivan put on a "spurt" and passed Uhl mann easily; in doing so, however, he came into contact with Uhlmann, who, after the conclusion of the race, entered a protest on the ground of a foul, which -has been disallowed by the umpire, the Hon.

Cricket. " Jovial, jocund, jolly bowlers, - As if tliey were the world's controllers." -BARNABT. SATURDAY'S CRICKET. IN the Gardens a large number of spectators watched the one day match between the leichhardts and Unions.' The ground was in a wretched con dition owing to the thunderstorm of the morning. It was doubtful to the last minute whether the match could be played; but at half-past two the captains Harris and White decided to commence, as the sun was drying the wicket fast. The Leichhardts batted first, and made the small score of 31. Toiler, Arm strong, and power, being very effective on the bad pitch.. The Unions batting one short totted up 79, which was a large score under the circumstances. Parker made 24j not out; a good innings. This makes four matches won by the Unions out of six their eleven have played out. SCOBES. LEICHHARDT C.C.-First Innings. Geddes, c.Power, b. Armstrong "... ... 4 Redpath, c. Green, p.

'Teas: God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17,1883. THE MINISTERIAL CRISIS IN VICTORIA. FOB people with such a reputation lor smart ness as Victorian capitalists are, they manage to muddle their public affairs in n remarkable manner. They have endured a hollow fraiid of a Government for a long time. Conservatives and Liberals had reduced themselves to the condition of the Kilkenny cats, and being quifo exhausted they were compelled to allow thie formation of a government by a group oi indi viduals who had no party except tneir own noble selves, Sir Bryan O'Loghen is a preten tious nincompoop, He is solemn, in manner, constitutionally lazy, and a very* indifferent administrator. His colleagues are all third rate men, the best of them being a quack doctor who lives by the practice of a branch of the Srofession which cannot be described in;a ecent journal. But as soon as he was installed the Conservatives who hate Berry with a w...

Is It Peace? IT'S about time that somebody spoke plain English about this Salvation Army business/ Let us give them every credit for hitherto having been very peace able and quiet. But who is to say how long it will be before we see these halleluijah lads and lasses com mitting a breach of the peace ? There are now no less than three " armies " upon patrol; two of them headed by Evangelical Amazons, and the third by the redoubtable " Captain" Cairns. There is feud /be- i twoen each and every of these missionaries. They ! hate each other with a peculiarly bitter hatred that is not known to the " ungodly." They advertise their spite in the newspapers. They declare their , hatred from the pulpit.

A Policy of Humbug. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 February 1883

A Policy of Humbug. WE have no more desire to indulge in personalities than the paper from which we quote below. But we have long been desirous of exposing the Penny-graph's policy of humbug. Therefore we feel bopnd to clip from a Northern paper, such strong arguments as the following in support of our views When the "Telegraph " taunts the Pre-mier with his ''intense selfishness/' and declare sthat" he cares nothing for the colony except he can make it serve Mb own ends," we can only say this kind of personal abuse is too contemptible to be reasoned against. And when it declares that "thecolouy ean borrow money as fast as may be necessary" we can only bow in silence to the oracular dictum of this great fiscal authority. We do: not like in dulging in personalites, but it is only fair for the public to know that the principal proprietor and managing director of the " Telegraph" is one of the biggest land speculators in the colony. Even in Q.ueen-streefc, among his own associates, he ...

By Land or by Loan? [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 February 1883

By Land or by Loan? One hundred and ninety-eight ?million acres of land alienated in the United States for railway purposes j and seventy-fourand a half million for other purposes. That was' the' Irey note of Douglas's address to his old friends at Maryboroiigh. s: Without that alienation , Amep^^would not nowhave her 100,000 miles of rail way, norher 50,000,000 of inhabitants. Except our distance from the old country there is nothing to pre vent our having a bid against America for wealth and population. We have a milder climate, an equally fertile soil, and plenty of room. If our seasons are not so moist, and our rainfall not so regular, we can modify the severity by art and supply tlie deficiency by -wealth. But the appliances of art and the expen diture of wealth mean that we must have population too.

On Young Men. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 February 1883

On Young Men. YOUNG men are only tolerated for their appearance. A. good-looking, fellow is the Cynosure of a ball-room. An ugly one is condemned to less conspicuous situa? tions. Hence the impudence or conceit of the one: the humility or sourness of the, other. The partiality of woman for young men of " presentable " exterior, has put a spurious value upon good looks. Youth considers that " appearances " must be kept up. It is not sufficient that his nails are clean, but his chin must be kept as smooth as a girl's, pad his coiffure parted to a hair. So long as he can display his graces youth is content to live. Place him in the bush among gum-troes and shepherds; and he at once grumbles at the miseries of existence. It is useles to point out to him that he is leading a life of more or less utility. The quality.6f his wool, or the weight of his beasts, are powerless to. console his wasted attractions. You may preach philosophy id him by the hour, you may assure him of the milUons of...
