VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 7 June 1864
VICTORIA. THE following is from the Argus. &nbsp; &nbsp; The young salmon, or parr, now hatched at &nbsp; the ice-works have become too numerous to number, They are estimated roughly at from 160 to 180, and no deaths have occurred amongst them. The little fellows are so active that when the pans are uncovered in the morn- ing the watchers have to be careful that none escape. A few of the ova die from day to day, but the number so removed from the pans still continues to be small. On the 29th, a ship from Hongkong, named the Snapdragon, with nearly 280 Chinee pas- sengers on board, was placed in quarantine. Small-pox, which was very prevalent at Hong- kong, had broken out among the passengers, but not to any serious extent, only five cases, one of which proved fatal, having been re- ported. On the Queen's birthday, the metropolitan and suburban Volunteers assembled in force to &nbsp; do honor to the occasion. The review, if it may be so called, took pl...
