The Potter Potted. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

The Totter Polteff Some three months since this yarn ^mmences;; The slow-coach post, lads, And, lest my readers 131 say, at once, it was at Burketown. „ At Burketown, noted for malaria As ariyi in' Gulf Carpentaria; j And, as.I said just now, you know. The date was some three months ago. 1 The Sergeant of Police, a man Who's fond of shooting when he can Don't think at shooting blacks I aim, Uo, he is fond of shooting game. Well, then, the Sergeant of Police Went out a-shooting ducks and geese, (Some three months since, I mentioned) one day, I rather fancy it was Sunday. Now, as a rule, this same official, Inclined is to be high judicial; Officials, when they are ambitious. Are oft official and officious. And so it was with he whom I > Have tried to limn, yet not decry; Yet, when you limn a limb of law. You often touch him on the raw. Now, there were many gentlemen ' Who came beneath the Sergeant's ken, Of these, a small but keen minority . Had felt the weight of his authority. It...

" I hope I don't intrude." Sometimes I lie, sometimes you lie, In the jolly month of July. Personal patters Make no shatters, If you find each one a true lie! For I live by slinging ink. Haunting every place and lobby, And it don't require to think, Long as you can do it nobby. Sometimes I'm wrong, sometimes you're wrong, All must now and then endure wrong; Personal patters Hake no shatters. If you find jthat they will cure wrong. For I live by slinging ink, Haunting every place and lobby: And my readers healths I drink As I sign, Yours truly, Bobbie. The Courier correspondent from Maryborough says that Dan Mactaggavt was formerly a partner in Kilkivan Station. This is untrue. Mactaggart never had a share in Kilkivan Station at all. Cheap whiskies seem to deteriorate a man's. moral as well as his physical fibre.

Judge Mein and the Street Arab. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

, . „ » Judge Mein and the Street Arab. Lieutenant-Colonel Judge M-ei/i—or His Honor Mr. Justice Lieut.-Col. Mein (put it which way you like)—had a pathetic little experience in Sydney. It was on the day of the landing of the N.S. Wales Soudan Contingent, at the ceremonies attending which the Lieut.^Col. represented Queensland. He was driving in a carriage with Colonel Haultain, when a stoppage, caused by a crush, brought them to a halt. The Contingent had marched on* A faded, weary-faced little street waif came'peering in at the carriage window, and blubbered—"If y' ple-e-ase, Sir, yer Exc'ncy, I mean; can yer 'Onner tell me if—if, er—if, ooh, ooh, booh!" " What is it, my little man ?" tenderly asked His Honor. " Pie-ease, is--is Mister Hol-ol-ol-ol— Holland dead ? Mother wants to know, sir." " Who's Mr. Holland ? " " Wu-un of the*so-o-o-gers, yer Worship." Cheer up, little man j you go right along to the Barracks, iand you'll find your father all right, I dare say." Now, how did L...

Who did it? [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

Who did it ? The Marine Board, re the Cahors accident, has sat and hatched, and this is the chicken. The accident occurred—" Firstly, by the default of David Walker, the master, in navigating too close to the shore and outlying1 dangers; secondly, from the default of Robert Morgan, the mate, in not stopping the vessel and going astern when danger was observed." Whether Captain Walter is to be blamed or not, of course the Marine Board is the most competent judge ; but, if I remember rightly, both he and the mate were on the bridge together, a few minutes before the crash took place. It also came out in evidence that they had an argument about the course, and as to whether they had passed Evans' Reef, or not. The mate thought they had, and the Captain thought they had not. The Captain was right, inasmuch as that same reef, which they were approaching all the time, " brought them up all < standing" But, before the vessel struck, the. Captain ordered the course to be altered ...

Miss Marian Willis. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

Miss Marian "Willis. The talented Australian artiste, Miss Marian Willis, and a good stock company, have "been ap pearing at the-Theatre Eoya.1 in .sensational dramas. On Friday of last week, The Orange Girl was sub mitted, and on Monday last Eileen Oge was placed on the boards. Miss Willis has been very successful in the parts she has undertaken in both these pieces, but more especially in that of Bridget Maguire, in the drama Eileen Ojfe, her assumption of Irish brogue and manners being excellent. Miss A. Mowbray creditably enacted the part oi JEjleen. F. C. Mortyne and Wi A. Arrowsmith have earned encomiums, but the rest of the company cannot claim to have shown themselves to be above mediocrity. This (Friday) e vening The Shaughraun will be produced. • v ' . • - •

The Returned Islanders. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

The Returned Islanders. All my readers know the maAn-£o<H^bf>the^dl|^titd-^ between Sam Griffith and certain Northern Planters. The Government recently spent (probably) 4»20O^ih sending a Commission on. a junketings Northern Sugar Plantations, with ihstructiqfi^t^ draw up a report as to how certain Islanders v were' obtained in respect of their labor agreement^,^ Commission consisted of Buckland, M.L.A. for Bulimba, a faithful tool to Samuel Griffith and party j Kinnaird Rose, a now chum Scottish advocate, but privately a decent fellow j and Milman, P.M.,. who has ever so long shown that he has the most extreme views on Griffith's side of the question. Two, violent partisans and a new-chum 1 The tribunal was a farce on the face of it. The report that resulted is absolutely worthless as a test on what would be legal evidence.

Something to Boot. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

Something to Boot. Somewhere up North (I don't say in, or near, May town) an interesting raffle is likely to come off, at about Christmas. A lady is going to " put up " her self, valued at £100, and a cottage, ttoo cows, and six goats, valued at £50; the highest thrower to win the lady, and the lowest, the other prizes. It is sufficiently evident that the affair must ultimately result in some sort of transaction between the highest and lowest, it is so much like parting a watch and guard, a buggy and horses, or a steam launch and her engines; or otherwise separating those chattels which manifestly appertain to each other. But yet, even as the horses may not be of the breed which suits the buggy, and the winner of the horses might arrange with the winner of the buggy to provide him with a waggon instead, when buying him out; or the watch maybe gold, and the guard silver 3 and they require better assortment; or the engines throb too much, and the winner of the launch may like to have ...
