Australian Federation [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 29 August 1885

Australian Federation I gave last week a full explanation of the Austra lasian Federation Enabling Bill, recently passed by the Imperial Parliament. Samuel Walker Griffith, Premier of this colony, has since drafted an Accept ing Bill, a draft of which he has forwarded to James Service, Premier of Victoria, and who wad the Chair man of the Intercolonial Convention that sat at Sydney, in 18S3. The Bill is to be introduced in the Victorian Legislature at as early a date as possible. Before, transmitting copies to the other Australian colonies, the Victoria^ Attorney-General (Kerferd, atid wlio is" riot- generally regarded as a very brilliant legal luminary) will go through our Sam's Bill, and communicate to the author His sentiments respecting it. .

Mixed, very. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 29 August 1885

Mixed, very. A train, when intended to carry freight as well as passengers, is tersely denominated in railway time tables a " mixed train." When the Maekay railway was opened the other day, a number of local residents put in a fair amount of spare time studying the rail way time-tables. Amongst these so employed were two ladies, between whom the following conversation was heard:— > No. 1: " W&at do they mean by' mixed trains,' my dea■" No. 2:/Oh t a 'mixed train' is one for all sorts of travellers, I suppose—one in which Kanakas, China men, Aboriginals, G-ermans, and white people are all mixed tip together."' No 11 " Oh! is that it P (Pointing to some adjacent cattle-pUs.) And what are they for ?

Ah Sam, in Couleur de Rose. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 29 August 1885

Hi Sam, in Conlenr fie Rose. W. Kinnaird Rose—a new-chum Scottish " ad vocate," and ambitious pressman—-has written a biographical sketch about Samuel Walker Griffith. When it is borne in mind that Kinnaird Rose was one of the precious trio of Polynesian Commissioners, and that he received £450, and all expenses, for a few weeks* work, it will n6t be wondered at tha»t his biography of his patron saint, Sam, is very, much couleur de Bose. The Scottish-advocate emigrant is proving himself worthy of reward, and grateful in the sense of enjoying a "lively anticipation of favors to come." It is good for him to worship the sun that shines in the meridian of his firmament, for such, to bira, is Ah Sam. Were Griffith out of power to morrow,^he would still be leader of the Queensland bar, and, as such, a valuable friend to, or formidable flouter of, any Scottish, or other, advocate, recently admitted to the Queensland bar. Just listen, you Queenslanders who have watched the drift of this col...

Great Orpheus, by the wonders of his lyre, Inspired by genius from a higher state, Made senseless stocks and stonos to "feel his fire. And loused the souls of things inanimate. The mantle, dropped by Orpheus, still is found Where, here and there, a flame divine indwells; Take off thy shoes, thou tread'st on holy ground, When godlike strata fvoaa Remeuyi outswells. Edouard Bemenyi, the " King of Violinists," and his little company opened in the Brisbane Town Hall, on Saturday last, and have been continuing the rarest of musical treats nightly during the present week. Remenyi is a musical revelation, but, as I treat of, him elsewhere, in a separate article, I am not called to devote spade to him in this column. The members of Remenyi's company are finished musical artists. Miss Hattie Dow...

The first is usually " at 6 a.m., and is what, in Ritualistic jargon is called a ? Low Celebration," or, sometimes, u Low Mass." There are three or four of these low services, to allow all who come from a distance, or whose time is much occupied, a chance of communicating. Then comes a service for children, followed by morning, prayer (which, by-the-way, is conducted with the sweet simplicity of the ordinary Protestant churches), and, after all these, come the " High Celebra...

He would have made an excellent model for a ir poor blind fiddler." i Such was the individual v$io made his bow to a Brisbane audience on the platforiaoi of the Town Hall, last Saturday night. His manner, his stoop, and the expression of his face, were all self-deprecatory and humble, like the poor Francis can who asked Sterne for charity "pour I' amour de There was but the slightest possible acknow ledgement of his presence from the brilliant audience. This meek man, clad in a strange garb, seemed, in Ms non-assertive demeanour, t0 appeal to his patrons not to hiss him before' he started. This, the great Remenyi ?.
