The Dead Finish. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 March 1883

The Bead Finish. THIS is an age of shoddy. Sham jewellery, sham broadcloth, sham gentility,/make lip the motley, which now-a-days is the only wear. W6 are of opinion that every mail is a gentle man ; and every woman should be a lady by virtue of her sex. But the sham finery of dress and address which both sexes think proper to adopt, is more likely to provoke a smile than to command respect. Bridget scouring pots in a Pompadour dress, or wad dling to church in a pull-back, is a sight to make angels-sensible ones we mean-weep. 'Arry, in his leather .apron, belting away at a bar of iron, is a respectable citizen, worthy of all the respect due to manhood. But equipped in a velvet collared coat, scarlet tie, and tawdry ring, he sinks from man to monkey, Novy, we do not wish to polce fun at any* attempt of man, woman, or child, to raise him or herself to a superior position. "What tve want to impress upon these spurious imitators of false gentility, is this; It is the grain of the wood, ...

A. Brisbane Citizen in Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 March 1883

A. Brisbane Citizen in Ireland. MY DEAB,-I told you in my two last liow I had succeeded in pushing myself right up to the top of the treie. - How large a space I occupy in the public eye, wasj I think, made sufficiently clear to you by the six chairs I sat upon among the rank and file of distinguished foreigners at the Boyal review. In my last I endeavoured to show that if, as I put it, "the large majority of our representative men in Queensland are a credit to the colony," the small minority of our representative men out of the colony are a credit to the countries they visit. Didn't I just patronize Gladstone and the Australian leg of mutton ? And didn't I lay down the grouse in Scot land, and the law in Ireland ? But I was nearly laying down something else, too. You see it happened in this way. I was talking to 'em at Tuam; and they were drinking punch-not the Queensland article, you know, but the stuff that really does bring the tears into-a man's eyes-and they looked as if they ...

The Eight Hour's Demonstration. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 March 1883

:. rr r : - ^ ~ : : The Eight Hours' Demonstration. The 18th anniversary of the formation of the Eight Hours' Trades Union was celebrated on Thursday. This association isgovernedby a committee consist ing of 14 delegates from the various trades' leagues of the city; it includes masons, carpenters, brick layers, labourers, engineers, moulders, and plumbers, and gasfitters, . The painters, plasterers, and the cabinet-makers-the latter are eight hours' men are not represented. By this timeall classes of artisans and mechanics should appreciatively1 understand the value of combination for tlie conservation of their own interests. It is only by union that labor can successfully compete against any threatened aggres sions of capital. The history of eight hours' agitations ,in Australia traces back its source to that hotbed of protection Victoria. Upon the first of April-ominous date ! 1857, the masons of Melbourne succeeded in getting the hours of labor reduced to eight, but had tomake th...

Mr. Marchant and the Police. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 March 1883

Mareliant and the Police. WE published some severe remarks last week upon a charge of violence against the Police. The person making the charge was so explicit in his statements, and so punctilious in the inatter of his name and address, that we- confess our sentiments were somewhat biassed against the constables. We have to point out that Mr. Mavchant has quite failed to substantiate his charge. That even the lengthy figure of the Police Magistrate was unable to see the equally prolonged form of Mr. Lewis, from the vantage of Mr. Mavchant1 s verandah. And that Mr. Marchant atjd his sister both swore to the white helmets on the' arresting constables; whereas, when on night duty, no constable is permitted to wear a helmet. Prom all this, we consider that it is quite time the tables Aero turned upon Mr. Mavchant, who has so scurrilously attacked the Police, and abused the con fidence of the Press. Ilad the charge been borne out, we should have been glad to see proper punishment inflic...

Pickles. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 March 1883

Pickles. Hra godfathers and godmothers, I believe, called herMary. The appellation vhioh heads tiiis narrativ^ sheearned for herself:-for from my earliest recol lection of her,.her normal condition was over head and ears in some scrape or dilemma, only to be adequately described as a pretty pickle. We were both infants in amore than strictly legal sense when fate first drifted us together. She, Pickles> was eight-;! was, her senior by a year in point of age, though I be lieve that as regards capacity^for mischief she could have given me what she used to call a long start, though I was a boy and she a girl. Somehow, I fancy theladies are mther tlie'jsuperiors of the "sterner" sex in this respect at any age. We were both in ,$iatu pupillari at Miss Priscilla Primm's Preparatory Academy, the leading; establishment in the county town of Dormuaville for teaching the young ideate 'of both sexes how to shoot.

A Flutter in the Buzzacott. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 March 1883

A Flutter in the Buzzacott. TIIE horrible story which we last week extracted from the Cairns Telegraph, has attracted not a little atten tion. The Minister for Works immediately demanded our authority for the tale of blood ; and upon our showing him the original narrative in the C. T.t at once telegraphed instructions to Cairns for an enquiry to be held. Our remarks on the atrocity have caused a slight flutter in the journalistic Buzzacott. The Courier mildly suggests that the report is a canard, and " that the persou who told it to the Editor of the Cairns newspaper was playing a practical joke upon him." It happens, however, that the Editor of the " Cairns newspaper " is a more practical bushman than the Editor of the Queen Street journal; and is hardly likely to have published a bush story which "is ridiculed as being totally untrue." Even sup posing that the story is a canard, it simply shifts the responsibility of an inhuman scheme from the timber getter to the Editor. Any news...

il Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to tlie Truth; and never be done.' BRISBANE: SATURDAY, MARCH 3, 1883. Mr. Redmond's Mission. TUEBE is something which extorts a certain meed of respect in the death even of a fero cious wild beast like a wolf, who dies snapping viciously to the end, hut without a cry. The cur who cringes in abject fear, whose shivering yells are only stilled by actual extinction, ex cites 110 pity for its fate. We like even animals to die game, and when the wild beasts we have to put to death are in human shape, we have more respect for the wretch who goes to the gallows in silence than for him whfo whimpers and trembles under the hangman's hands But what shall we say of such men as the Irish assassins/now happily under lock and key in Djablin, who are eagerly competing for the privilege of telling tales on one another! A cur may cringe and yell, but he cannot turn Queen's evidence to save his pitiful life ; that is a depth of abasement which a brute cannot rea...

Their rendition of " The Oliiuies " is «o well known that we need not stay tb criticiise^ tlie perfor mance.

Tin; only first Eleven Match on Saturday, was the continuation of tho match between the Albert C. C. and tho Carlton C. C. in the Gardens, for the Prentice Challenge Cup. The Alberts, after a very close and exciting game, just managed to secure the victory by six runs. Owing to the good form' shown by Messrs. Sylvester and Gregory with the ball, the former obtaining 5 wickets, and the latter 3 wickets, the Alberts second innings closed for the small total of 39, leaving the Carltons 53 runs to get to win, which it was thought they would easily do , but owing to the fine bowling of Petrie, who obtained 6 wickets, and Baines who obtained 4 wickets, and the energetic manner in which all the fieldsmen worked, their total was 6 short of the required number. The form displayed with the bat was not first class, the only batsmen who displayed a...
