New music, [an advertisement for a new version of “Advance Australia Fair”, 1897]

[Editor: This 1897 advertisement offers a new version of “Advance Australia Fair”]

New music.

Messrs. W. H. Paling and Company send us a parcel of music containing a revised and improved edition of “Advance Australia Fair,” described as a “patriotic song,” written and composed by “Amicus;” “The Federal Banner of United Australia,” a well-meaning effusion, written and composed by Lieutenant S. Pegrim; and Mr. Sydney Hoben’s new song “Melons.” The last-named is described as “a coon love song,” and has already been successfully introduced by Miss Lottie Moore at the Palace Theatre.
