The Religion of Honour. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 10 March 1883

The Religion of Honour. MY DEAB CHABLES,-You do put things very nicely, -very nicely indeed. At the ceremonial in the Grammar School on the 28th day of February, you took occasion to advert to the subject of religion in the school; and the following is the report of the words you used on that occasion: "One thing he would repeat-he had often spoken to the same effect-and that was, that they never in terfered with the religious instruction of the pupils. They endeavoured to give religious instruction to those whose parents did not wish it otherwise, but that instruction was principally a religion of honour. In Queensland the State character of education pro vided for instruction of a secular character, but the religious instruction was not neglected by the teachers. Further, children came from their homes where religious teaching was not neglected, and he believed parents in that respect discharged their duties to their children." Now, Charles, do you not interfere with religious ins...

Aquatics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 10 March 1883

Aquatics. ROWING.-The Commercial Bowing Club's Kegatta on Saturday last was not a great success. There was only one race-rowed in heats of two boats each. The first heat was between crews stroked by Bansom and Hardgrave respectively-won easily by Ransom's crew by about three lengths. The second heat was between crews stroked by Devoy and Mullen. After an excellent race Devoy's crew won by half a length. The final heat between Devoy and Ransom was not pulled. A scratch race between two crews from the Commercial Club, and one from the Brisbane Bowing I Club, was won by the latter after a good race. The Brisbane Bowing Club have just ordered another new string-test gig from Fuller of Melbourne, similar to that obtained for the last Regatta, which has turned out an admirable boat.
