New Books. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 29 August 1885

New Books. Geo. Robertson and Co. have issued a nefr edition of the poems of Queensland's poet, J. Brunton Stephens. The work is entitled Convict Once, and other poems." It is unnecessary to criticise the matter in the book, as the poems jare well-known to most of my readers, the compilation of the s volume being chiefly valuable as ahandy collection under jfoe cover of the author's shorter poetical efforts. Et&ny of the pieces originally appeared in Qubens latub j&itnch, the (Melbourne). J. Brunton Stephens, is the first of living Australian poets, and Quebttelanders mky well be proud of Mm.

Tlie RelioboamGovernment. it was Behoboam, son of Solomon, who, when, he ascended the throne of Judah, and was asked to lfet bisd^^ said: K'My little finger shall be thicker than my Other's loins. And now, whereas my father did lade you with a heavy yoke, I will add to your yoke j my father hath dhastised you with whips, but I will \ chastise you with scorpions," ^ If the ghost of old Behoboam walks about the earth, it has taken up an indefinite leasehold of the ♦' earthly tabernacle" of Samuel Walker Griffith, the present Premier of Queensland. The spirit of Behoboam is the leading principle that animates the present Government. If there is one political manoeuvre the present Government has thoroughly studied and mastered, it is .the science of terrorism, ilt has reduced its followers to the most abject and pitiable political slavery. It forced dowii the throats of its servile supporters an objectionable Land Bill, by threatening that, unless it were passed, the con struction of pu...

My Ducats! Oh, My Ducats! [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 29 August 1885

My Ducats! Oh, My Ducats! ; A publican at Towns vilie "named Thaler, landlord of the Leichhardt Hotel, had a booth at the race course, and retured to town with nearly a hundred pounds, as his day's takings. This he carefully locked up in a drawer, but, with less than his usual sharpness, left the drawer immediately iabove it, open. Three or four of the spieling fraternity w$re staying in the house, one of whom called him to the bar, not for legal promotion, but ostensibly get a drink, and in reality to detain liita in cony^itsation for reasons which afterwards transpired. The others, as far as was known $t the time, remained in the sitting room, which was situated between the bar and the bedroom in which was the chest of drawers containing the money. A remark dropped by one of the men induced Mrs. Thaler to go and examine the chest, when she found that the upper drawer had been taken out, which gave easy access to the treasure, a fact which was taken advantage of,, as the latter was...
