You cannot and you don't have to... As i understand it you only want to
set some text in a statusbar. So the only thing you have to do is
sending some text as an argument of the signal.
You really should take a look at the examplecode in the gtkmm tarball.
Using signals is so much cleaner then passing pointers to objects

General approach would be..
- declare public signal in childclass
- connect childclass.signal upon instantion of childclass with
statusbar.set_text. this connecting is done in the parent!!
- whenever you want to set the text, you simply call signal.emit
("hello") from within the childclass.

Something like this..
