BRISBANE AFFAIRS. FROM OUR SPECIAL OORRESPONDENT. November 6. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 22 November 1879
BRISBANE AFFAIRS. FfiOM OCB 6PGC1AL OOBBG6PONDBNT. November 6. THIS is with us a day of small things-we I ate fain in default of something better to interest ourselves in such matters as the welcome accorded to the Dev. "Tommy" Jones. It is most amusing; to see the eager ness with which a number of people endea vour to get up a shindy round the most I innocent and inoffensive of Anglican cleigy mon. His arrival, and the announced inten tion of his admirers to give him a public weloome, was the Bignal for a number of gentlemen to besiege the newspaper offices with scurrilous letters, all written with "the utmost respect for" the reverend gentleman, but slating him most unmercifully notwith standing. And when the welcome ceremony did come off at the old School of Arts, it was all the committee could do to prevent the outbreak of a row. Drew, the Auditor General, insisted on introducing politics and polemics into his speech, and Dickson-well, he got so excited that the Courier reporter...

The Revolt in Cabul. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 22 November 1879
The Revolt In OalcL THE terrible fate which has overtaken the English Embassy in its new quarters at Cabul is the uppermost cubjeat of interest now. Lust week was singularly uneventful. Mot for years have we had so dull an inter val, devoid of wan and all political excite merits. Bat meanwhile this surprise was preparing for us. We had received only a few days previously the details of the recep tion of Sir Louis Gavoguari. Nothing apparently was wanting to complete die welcome. The Afghan Minister for Foreign Affairs met the envoy and his escort fcrar miles from Oabol. The entire gan-ison was turned out to receive him, the band playing "God Save the Queen," and the Ameer granted a firtt audience the same afternoon. Two palaces were placed at the disposal of the mission, and a guard of honour was assigned, for its protection. "The whole moral of the narrative," wrote The Sltmet, "is to make it clear that the poller which has brought this embassy to Cabul bids fair to be crowned with...
