'Arry's Opinion of the Ball. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 4 July 1885

'Arry's Opinion of the Ball. "A slippery floor, champagne galore, The music six-and-seven-ly j The waltz you know—a trifle slow—; But oh! the 'uggin' 'eavenly!" It is rumored that Prince Albert Victor is be trothed to the Princess Clementine, daughter of the King of the Belgians, a school-girl of 12. Bowen has evolved a second Private Assembly, so that it can now boast of two social whirlpools. This new Assembly numbers 40 members, and was to hold its first dance on Friday evening last. P.T.—It is said that very quiet eyes, that impress and embarrass one with their repose, signify not only self-command, but also much complacency a^id some conceit. Restless eyes, that cannot look one steadily in the face, denote a deceitful designing mind. Eyes in which the white has a yellowish tinge, and is streaked with reddish veins, prove much of j&rong passion and hasty tempers. Very blue gyes bespeak a mind inclinedto coquetry; grey% es signify dignity, intelligehce, aid excellent reas...

Stock-drovers' Rights. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 4 July 1885

Stock-drovers' Bights. r A Thargomindah correspondent writes:—" A mis carriage of justice occurred here a few days ago. A drover was fined £2 for trespassing on enclosed 'grounds. These grounds happened to be within half-a-niile of a road usually used for stock purposes. See Crown Lands Act, 1884,,part 3, section 36. The~ Chairman of the Bench either never knew of the ?es$ istence of this clause, or was pleased to ignore it, and gave the drover a little local jurisdiction/' This complaint of my correspondent is all very well, so far as it goes, but he does not give me suffi cient information to enable me to judge whether the Thargomindah magistrate acted in contravention of the statute or not. Section 36 of the Crown Lands Act, 1884, is as follows:—"Any person driving horses, ^cattle or sheep along any road passing through a holding under this Part of this Act [i.e. the. "Existinl'M'astoral Leases" part], which is ordinarily usedPfor the purpose of travelling stock, may depasture su...

Arthur Rutledge sees Snakes. ["SEE CARTOON.] [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 4 July 1885

Arthur Rutledge sees Snakes. {"See Cartoon."} The honorable Arthur Rutledge, Attorney-General for Queensland, is a man of sober habits. He is pious and truthful. In spite of a career in the pulpit, he has never yet learned to romance, and he couldn't tell a tarrydiddle if he tried ever so. When the honorable Arthur says a thing, his hearers feel that they • are on solid bottom. VVhich makes the following exception to the general rule all the more scandalous and all the more notorious. When Ah Sam, Queensland's noble Premier, and his family party, of which the honorable Arthur Rutledge was one, were proceeding up North in the Government steamer Lucinda, last week, Rutledge saw a remarkable phenomenon. It was night—Che weird, mystic, moonlit night. There were others on deck at- the time> but the vision was not vouchsafed to. anyone but the honor able Arthur.
