The New South Wales Ministry. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 January 1883

The New South Wales Ministry, Here are a few jottings anent the new Ministry in New. South "Wales :-A. Stuart, the Premier and Colonial Secretary, is generally regarded as a sound, honest politician, who never spealcs until he knows he has something worth listening to. Sir Patrick Jennings, Vice-President of the Execu tive Council, (without portfolio) is a genial, well educated gentleman, more addicted to the crime of putting wool upon mutton than to sharp practice in the lobby; and he won his knighthood solely by the admirable manner in which he acted as Executive Commissioner long before, during, and after the great Sydney Exhibition, George R, Dibbs ought to make a decent Colonial Treasurer, as he was long-and may be at present for all this deponent knoweth-brother and partner of the Sydney manager of the Commercial Banking Company. It will be remembered, however, that George made one very serious mistake. When a law yer got swingeing damages against him for a libel arising out o...

Jim-Crow Journalism. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 13 January 1883

Jim-Crow Journalism. ME. EBENEZEE TUORNE is not unknown to fame. His experiences are as varied as ihey are instructive. It is hard to say whether his politics or his papers have been changed of fcener. Such versatility of genius is refreshing; such adaptability of character is bewildering. At the present moment Mr. Thome reminds us of our school boy, reading on the Colossus of Rhodes; or of Mr. Sanger in his famous six-horse, act as The bounding Brother, of the Prairie." Mr. Thome has one foot planted upon' Ministerial agriculture; the other resting upon the Liberal platform of tho Tribune, It is a great stride. But Mr. Thome is a great man, and thinks it not beyond his reach. Amazing as it may seem, Mr. Thoruo, who is the originator and editor of the Planter and Farmer, has purchased the Tribune, and undertaken the editorship. The one paper upholds M'llwraith's policy upon Coolies and Railways. The other promises "Elevation of Labour," "European Labour," "Pay ment of Members," and ...

A Peep at the Shows. "You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happenedit?"—The Spanish Student. NARY SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 January 1883

A Peep at the Shows. "You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happenedit?"~TheSpanish Student. NARY SHOW. BIIISBANU is a remarkable city for amusements. We do indeed talce our pleasures sadly. Theatrical shows come at very infrequent intervals, and then generally of an inferior character. During the last five months, with only one brief interval of opera, purely accidental in its arrival, the theatre has been-cither empty or handed over to nigger business. Is this the estimate that Southern impresariosba ve of our dramatic taste ? Can we only appreciate Bones and Banjo Well, it's hard to say, because really we never have a chance of testing our powers. If a " star " does come up, the rest of the company is so very indifferently good, or else so utterly bad that it is painful to see and hear the exhibition of contrasts. And if a tolerably level company arrive they so tear passion to tatters that it is better to stop away, and guard unbroken the Idol of one's theatxicaifanc...
