Ten Years' Penal Servitude. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 28 April 1883

Ten Tears' Penal Servitude. I LEABK that the article under the above heading in last week's FIGA.RO has attracted the attention of the Government, who have already sent up north for a copy of Judge Noel's notes; when these are received, the Cabinet will consider the case on its merits, and the awful sentence of ten years will probably be re mitted. Further, I am privately informed from an other source that there are many mitigating circum stances, and that the case was so surrounded With curious incidents that there is a doubt whether the man believed he was stealing another man's horse at all. So far as I can indirectly learn, the animal was once his, had. been lost, impounded, sold by the poundkeeper in the ordinary way, changed owners more than once, and was again lost and impounded. But I can't put these statements forward as facts until verified by. official information.

'* Pear God; Speak evil of none; ; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, APRIL 28, 1883. The Yery Latest Thing in " Political Devices." A CHUM in Melbourne, sends me word that the old dry-as-dust squatters who live in luxuriance in the moneyocratic fashionable suburbs of South Yarra, Toorak, &e., on the money obtained from Queensland lands held by them at a nominal rental* are busily scheming to form another Syndicate. This new Syndicate will, as a matter of course, be joined by such men asWienholt, 0. B. Button, Lumley Hill, and others who appear to arrogate to themselves a Divine right to the possession" of the people's territory. Probably, too, some of its members will be recruited from the Brisbane Telegraph Syndicate. This association of solid landocrats (in consonance with the necessities of the times, I coin a new and suitable epithet!) are to submit to the Queensland Government a proposal to construct the -Transcon tinental Railway on very mach ...

Cricket. "Jovial, jocund, jolly bowlers, As if they were the world's controllers." —BARNABY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 28 April 1883

Cricket. "Jovial, jocund, jolly bowlers, As if they "were the world's controllers." -BARNABY. As little short of a miracle would have been neces sary to give them a victory, the Boweri Hills C. C. wisely concluded they had enough of Carltons for once, and made them a present of a win without fur ther trouble. The latter then wanted a shy at the formidable Stanleys, and arranged to give them a turn on the vacant afternoon. Receiving a snicker from the fickle goddess, they sent the inimy to chase leather, and started off Silvester and Gregory score hunting. They set the others a good start with 11 and 9, and played straight for them. Strickland came with a rush and passed them for first place. He made a very creditable 14, but couldn't resist the temptation to let fly at a curly-tail, and the fieldsman thought it might be-a-Umg time before he got another catch, BO Yorkey had to return to the bosom of his friends. Scott and Wearne bowled pretty well, especi ally the former j letus'give...

THE weightB for tbe Wsbwick hatidioaps appear be low, and, taking the two-mile race first, I find Satirist at the top of the list with 9 st., and if he were the Satirist of old he might have a show, even at this weight, albeit two miles never seemed to be alto £>£>?& C/9ME\ gether to his liking'.

Correspondence. A FLAT CONTRADICTION To the Editor of FIGARO. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 28 April 1883

Correspondence. A FLAT CONTRADICTION To the Editor of FIGABO. Sis,-It is a pity that the writer of " A Pluumy Plaint," in a recent issue of your paper, was not able to compose a rhyme without introducing falsehoods. I deny having teen " sacked," also having joined a swim ming .school. I further deny having ever been called an "ass" by any pupil of mine. During the time that I was teaching, I managed to gain the respect and affec tion of both parents and pupils; and if your writer wishes to gain the same respect and to be as popular amongst boys as myself, I should advise him to throw jealousy on one side, and to bear in miiid the old saying, viz., " People who live in glass houses should never throw stones." -I am, sir, &c., E. L. WILSON. Brisbane, April 23,1883. [I publish the above-rather against FIGABO style5 at the earnest entreaty of Mr Wilson, who informs me that he is " Dickey Plum," and believes that the doggrel referred to has injured him.

A FISHY STORY [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 28 April 1883

LAWYER SHBRIDAN made a good point at the Police Court on Monday, when defending Maria Nay lor, charged, on remand, with keeping a disorderly house in Margaret-street. " The law," said he, " licenses prostitutes, but does not license houses in which they may reside. Where are they to dwell ?" Mr. Pin nock, too, showed more acquaintance with' the subj ect than I gave him credit for when he remarked that he would prefer to see houses, rather than woineix, licensed, as that would prevent landlord wretches, who batten on the proceeds of vice from grinding the wretched girls down to the last penny. At last! Bravo, Pinnock! .# # # THE Toowooxnba Chronicle saye :-" The disastrous railway accident at Bowen Park may be-productive of good in one direction or the other 1" Why, cert'nly -especially " the other."
