BIBLE TEACHING-. We want no Bible teaching Within our Public Schools; Our sons and daughters do not want Such elementary rules.

The Secret Service of the Bludgeon. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 February 1883

MR GEOBGE MA.BCHA.NT, of 139, Elizabeth Street, lias brought a very serious charge against the Brisbane Police In a letter, pub lished in the Telegraph of Tuesday evening, 20th inst., he accuses the arresting constaMes of persistent ill-treatmejit of pnsoiier^ withiri the walls of the lock-up. It matters not whether the only specifj.e case mentioned be the brutal beating of two unfortunate Kanakas. Similar assaults are frequent, according to MarchanVs statement, and it is the arresting constables only that seem thus to give way to their savagery. The moral Mr. Marchant wishes to draw from this, is the retaliation which these and other Kanakas will take upon unprotected traders to the South Seas. We shall place our moral nearer home. We demand that a full enquiry be made into these charges. Either the Police or Marchant are guilty of a crime : the one of unprovoked assault, the other of unprovoked slander. The Police are public servants. Upon their behaviour the safety of life, limb,...

i^afewoirid your Hither My dbaii SIB THOMAS,-I am credibly.informed that you bail .from the V Land o' Cakes," that you cherish on your left breast the prickly badge of your nation, and that when in best fighting form you wreath a crown of Scotch thiatles around your manly brow.

LILLIPUTIANA. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 February 1883

LILLIPUTIANA. " Now is the winter of our discontent made glorious summer by the*'-children of Pollard. We. remember the little people with pleasurable affection- for their bright ways and spontaneous happiness. We welcome them back, -with every hope of a good season for them selves, and a merry one for us. From the way the bairns threw themselves into their parts, and the untir ing agility they displayed, it was always as great a pleasure to visit them at the theatre, in a former visit, as it was to see them enjoying, themselves at football, cricket, and racing. Nor must we forget the earefu singing that the people always exhibited. Forthis credit ; must be due to the untiring^paiience of the big brothers whoform the orchestra and train the youiig idea. After all this it will be a terrible disappointment if we do not appreciate their second appearance as much as we did their first.

INTERNATIONAL CRICKET MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 February 1883

INTERNATIONAL C&tCEET MATCH. The contest between the Hon. Ivo Bligh's eleven, and the combined Australian eleven, which has been looked forward to with great interest, was commenced on Saturday last, on the Association Cricket Ground, Sydney, the weather being dull and threatening right through the match. Bligb> who was again lucky, won the toss, and, taking advantage of a splendid wicket, sent his men in to bat. Barlow and C. T. Studd started to the bowling of Palmer and Midwinter. The game was slow at first, but Studd and Steel getting together, it soon became fast; Steel putting i together 135, not out, in grand style. Studd, run out, after making .48 in first-class form. Bligh 19, being the oply other score of any importance. The innings closed for 263 runs. Bannerman aud Bonnor opened for the Australians ; Bannerman playing his usual cautious game, and Bonnor going for big hits immediately. 1 Bonnor made 87 by rather risky play.

Municipal Muddling. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 February 1883

Municipal Muddling. THE position of the Municipal Council is not an enviable one. We do not think the rate payers will again unheedingly place confidence in the hands of men-so impatient of control, and so incapable of official management. Nor is the common sense in the Council of any very extravagant quantity. The Corporation workmen are several weeks in arrears of pay; yet no one offered to support Alderman Porter's very sensible proposal for meeting the present expenditure. Abuse, contradiction, and uncompromising obstinacy are; the only qualities requisite to make a first class alder man, under present conditions. The more serious question is still in abeyance. This is now, not so much who shall be Mayor ? as are the Council at present competent to elect .a Mayor P Mr. Griffith says they are. But Mr. Griffiith is a man and a lawyer. That combination of frailties is sometimes liable to error. Is it so in this case ? The local Govern ment Act provides that a Mayor be elected at th...
