TASMANIA. WE have papers to the 9th instant from Hobart Town and Launceston. The Hobart Town Mercury, of the 4th in-<*> stant, mentions that the Bight Rev. Dr. Murphy, Roman Catholic Bishop of Hobart Town, wu canonically installed the previous morning, in presence of a crowded congregation, at St. Joseph's Church. At 9 o'clock precisely, the Bishop, in full canonicals, entered the church, and was received by the clergy, headed by the Vicar-General, witliin the sanctuary.

WATER POLICE COURT. TUESDAY, MAY 22. BEFORE the Water Police Magistrate. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

WATER POLICE COURT. TUESDAY, MAY 22. BEFORE the Water Police Magistrate. BROACHING CARGO.—John M'Clelin, a sea-<*> man on board the Flying Cloud, was charged with broaching cargo on the 17th instant. David Isaacs, second made, deposed that on the mate, deposed 17th instant the prisoner and several other men were employed in getting bread out of the hold ; witness was overlooking them, when he missed the prisoner, and went forward to look for him; he found him lying in the bread locker, on the starboard side of the vessel, and some barrels of ale were near; he was intoxicated; witness ordered him on deck, but the prisoner used abusive language towards him, though he after wards admitted that he had taken dirink out of one of the barrels ; the chief officer was present when he confessed that he had spiked the barrel; no one but the prisoner could have done so, as all the other men were employed in another part of the vessel.—The prisoner said he got the drink from a frie...

THE DALBY RACES AND THE HORSES WHICH RAN THERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

THE DALBY RACES AND THE HORSES WHICH RAN THERE. On this subject a correspondent writes: —"I thought as some of the horses were coming down to you, you would like to know how they ran up here. Well, then I think we may dismiss the Jimbour lot as duffers that will not be likely to show again, except maybe little Milliner, a smart little mare that won the Hack Race. Job Short's lot, in the way they were brought out and ridden, contrasted with everything eke on the course, and did great credit to Cunningham, the trainer and jockey. Beeswing, a dapple grey fillcy, is as handsome as a picture, and won her trial stakes in style; she certainly is a beauty, and I think bound to-be heard of. Free Selection is a little black cob, bred at Jimbour, by Anchorite ; he divided stakes with Eva, but he cannot get away for much more than a mile. Quadrant is a curious made horse, but looks what he is—a galloper ; it was hard to see what Cunningham was doing with him, but I think his distance is one and...

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

CRICKET. A match was commenced on Saturday after-<*> noon between the first elevens of the Victoria and United Clubs. The game was not com-<*> menced United about 3 o'clock, and there was not time to play more than one innines. The cap tain of the Victoria eleren, having won the toss, sent his men to the wickets, and before they were all put out they succeeded in placiug 116 runs on tho paper. Maenish was the top scorer, with 25; he was a long time at the wickets, however, before ho got many runs. When Board, the last man, went in, he had only six to his credit. The two then threw some life into the play, and rattled off 39 runs between them in a very few minutes. Board's 17 com* prised a good leg-kit for 5. Fowles stood second on the list, with a well-earned score of 20. Sbeehan, of whom some* thing good is always exported, only got 8, and M'Grath, the " don slogger," 7. The Utter has been batting well this season, and in-severe? matches has got 24 and o...

Country Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

Country Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) THE anniversary of the opening of the Bap-<*> tist Chapel, Oxley Creek, was yesterday com-<*> memorated in the usual manner by a public meeting. In addition to the usual attendants, a number of friends from town were pre sent, conveyances by land having been provided for them, and some proceeded up the north Bide, and were crossed over in boats by the neighbors. Altogether about one hundred per sons assembled. A substantial repast was pro vided for 1 o'clock, and ample justice was done to it, the fresh air having an invigorating effect in this respect. The friends then assembled under a rustic shade which had been prepared for the purpose, and the annual meeting was held. Mr. William Moore was voted to the chair, and the meeting was addressed by the chairman and by the Revs. A. Caldwell and E. Hooker, and Messrs. Spence, Wright, Grimes, and others. The amount received on this occa sion will ...

GOODNA. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

GOODNA. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) ANNIVERSARY services in connection with the church in this place have been held this week, The usual sermons on the Sabbath were preached by the Rev. D. Mossop, of South Bris-<*> bane, and the Rev. William Draper, pastor of Draper, pastor the church. The building was well filled on each occasion. The Congregational Union held their meeting at Goodna this year, and hence on Tuesday last there was an additional interest excited in the number of ministers who were present at the annual tea meeting of the church which was held on the same day. The morn ing and afternoon was occupied in the discus sion of the general business connected with the Union, and the general welfare of the churches in the colony. At half-past 4 the tea meeting of the church and congregation was held. It was largely attended. It was originally iu tended to have the tea in another temporary building, but this idea was abandoned on ac count of the dampness of the ground...

THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 24. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 24. THERE is no holiday on this, the Queen's birthday, on the Logan. The Germans kept Whit Monday and Tuesday, and the English and other communities are to have the first day day of June for the Logan Races; that day being fixed to give a cjiance for those that have a mind to attend the Brisbane sports. It would not, perhaps, be amiss to recom mend to the Logan people the desirability of establishing a Farmers' Club, that might take the matter of an annual show or agricultural exhibition into consideration, in preference to the I second races being established regularly. Then, again, the Farmers' Club could weigh the' matter over of establishing a market, say once a month, for the present, at some central place on the river. In the old countries it is the custom for the agriculturist to establish corn and cattle markets in their own neighborhoods, and let the consumer and trades people attend to purchase what they want. This sort of syste...

CALENDAR FOR JUNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

CALENDAR FOR JUNE. WINTER commences on the 24th. The warn-<*> ing cold nip experienced during the last twelve days has given the finishing touch to vines, figs, and peaches; and the garden now looks leafless and bare, unless where a fresh spring of ground crops has been hurried into luxuriance by the late rains and fine tillage. This cold will do good, as in many cases the plants enumerated had commenced again to shoot, owing to the genial weather experienced since the rain fell. Had the unnatural growth continued the conse quences would have been most serious. The Tinea now want looking to. Prune well back, ■ and repair all damaged trellising; make cut ting! about 18 inches long, leaving four eyes ; keep the tort* apart, and after tying them in bundles of 60, set them in dry shady corner; lory one half of each bundle in the ground, patting tome litter or a piece of rag and a small ■ quantity of earth on the upper end of each bundle.

FAMILIAIR LETTERS ON GEOLOGY AS APPLIED TO AGRICULTURAL CHEMISTRY. FIRST LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

FAMILIAIR LETTERS ON GEOLOGY AS APPLIED TO AGRICULTURAL CHEMISTRY. FIRST LETTER. BY DR. D. MARCH. THE chemical products of Queensland are at present very few in number but will daily increase, both in quality and value. At the present time there are many things going to waste through the neglect of the people, and of this much could be turned to account in the process of what might be termed " the economy of daily life." Some things which are in every day use, in the arts and manufactures could be plentifully supplied from this colony, which are getting very scarce at home, for the manufacturers' con tumption, as the source of supply is falling off every day and must always do so. Queensland is abundantly rich in natural pro ducts to furnish these, and even might supply itself with many articles that are at present imported from other countries, and could have plenty for exportation, and give ample re muneration to the owners, and increase the prosperity of the country. In the first...

EXHAUSTION OF THE SOIL. (From the Melbourne Economist, May 4.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

EXHAUSTION OF THE SOIL. (From the Melbourne Economist, May 4.) ONE of the chief points to which the great scientific minds of Europe direct at-<*> tention, in regard to agriculture, is the pro- blem of "exhaustion of soils;" and the resources of knowledge, the talents and ex perience of the age, have been largely brought to bear on the questions of the con tinuance or revival of the normal qualities of originally good soils, and the improve ment of inferior ones. None has been more conspicuous than Baron Liebig in this and all other questions referring to the science of agriculture; and the startling conclusion to which he has arrived is that, "among the causes of the decline of nations, exhaustion of the soil is one of the greatest." It is a self-evident truth that an exhausted soil, if no means are taken to recover it from that state of exhaustion, cannot produce food for the same popula tion that it could have previously sup ported ; and this unproductiveness must i...

NATIVE GRASSES. No. II. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

NATIVE GRASSES. No. II. IT will be seen, by a reference to the extract I have already sent you from the journal of the Highland Society of Scotland, in reference to prairie grass, that one of the names by which it, or something like it, has been sold in Europe is Cerotochtoa Australii. In another place it is called Australian prairie grass; and a friend on whose knowledge may be placed some reliance, and who has given these fancy named seeds a trial more than once, says that the proper name is tall oaten grass, and that it is to be found in abun dance on the Darling Downs. Should this latter idea prove correct, your readers, many of them will know it. All who wish can try the seed, having no great distance to travel for it; and we may come to believe there is virtue in the " prairie grass" after all. Dr. Schomburgk, the curator of the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, has openly laid claim to the "prairie grass" {Cerotochtoa Australia), which has been causing all the stir in Europe, as a na...

MAIZE-MEAL AS HUMAN FOOD. FOURTH ARTICLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

MAIZE-MEAL AS HUMAN FOOD. FOURTH ARTICLE. IN the Courier of Tuesday last, in reference to the maize-meal question, which is evidently exciting much public interest, the following letter appeared, over the signature "Pater- familias," and dated from Ipswich : — " Sir,—You may remember the first direction in the old receipt of the way to cook a hare— " First catch it"—and it seems to me very applicable to the subject of the introduction of maize meal as an article of food. Belonging to that large class of men with large families and small means, the question of cheap, wholesome food is one of primary importance, and I was therefore much pleased with the articles upon maize meal which have lately appeared in your journal, as, from the price at which maize is now being sold, I anticipated being able to pro cure a good article of diet at something like a reasonable price; but, alas! for the vanity of human expectations in this .'respect in Queens land, I found, apon" endearoring to purch...

PLEURO-PNEUMONIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

PLEURO-PNEUMONIA. On the subject of pleuro, a correspondent, writing from the Northern Downs on the 15th instant, says:— Pleuro-pneumonia. What shall we say of Pleuro-pneumonia. say this plague of long duration ? As compared with the si*ter colony, we are in a manner free from it, and I am no ways inclined to attribute all the deaths of cattle we hear of to its in fluence, although that it has been here on the Downs, and is here now, is indisputable; we have not many cattle herds, but I believe ail have it more or less, but always chiefly the working oxen or milkers, or town herds in pro portion as it seems to me as they are worried and knocked about, and old and young, poor and fat, all take it equally. Jimbour and Myall Creeks seemed its strongholds among the cattle, and St. Ruth's herds are spoken of, but I have ridden over much of that run, and should say 2 or 3 per cent, would be the extent of deaths there, and about the same higher up the river. One proprietor of a large | run...

The Station. THE CUMBERLAND DISEASE. CONCERNING the Cumberland disease, which there is too much reason to fear actually exists in the colony, the following has been sent to us for publication:— Sib,—The motion of the Hon. H. B. Fitz on the Scab Assessment Act of 1860, requiring re turns, &c, &c., and the reply of the Hon. the exponent of GoTernment iHeas upon the sub ject, in which he says that he thinks it undesir able to include the Cumberland disease, although specially mentioned in the Act, and to destroy sheep afflicted with that disease, as it is not in his opinion contagious or infectious, leads me aa a squatter in the colonies for more than thirty years, and likely to be affected very materially by future motions that may culminate upon this question, to ask the kindness of your permitting me space in your valuable and extensively cir culated journal for the insertion of a few lines.

BANK OF AUSTRALASIA. THE following is a copy of the thirty-second annual report of the above corporation as pre-<*> sented to the shareholders on March 19:— 1.

The directors feel assured that the profits exhibited will be regarded by the proprietors as satisfactory, especially when it is considered that they have been earned in the face of in creasing competition, and under the disadvan tage of a drought of unusual severity and dura tion, which has prejudically affected the pasto ral and commercial interests of the Australian colonies. 3. The directors are enabled to renew the ex pression of their undiminished confidence in the stability and prosperity of the bank, and the progress of the business in New Zealand. 4. By th...

THE NORTHERN EXPEDITION. (From the S.A. Register, May 9.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

THE NORTHERN EXPEDITION. (From the S. A. Register, May 9.) THE recent departure of the Ellen Lewis, with eleven passengers and a quantity of sup-<*> plies, for the Northern territory, should remind our readers that the work of attempted settle- ment in that country is still going on. Mr. M'Kinlay pointed out in his letter, dated November 29, that if sheep were landed at Port Darwin instead of Escape Cliff*, thoj would probably do tolerably well, as the country wm more open and much more suitable for sheep than the neighborhood of the Adelaide Hirer. He also suggested that as several teams of working bullocks would be necessary to go on with the surrey of lands whenever the time arrived, and that as a number of itanch horses ought to be on the spot in good working order, it would bo wise to send them at once, so that ! they might become somewhat acclimatised. The Government have therefore sent by the Ellen Lewis 250 sheep, 6 horses, and 21 oxen. Forty pigs, too, have be...

SIR CHARLES DARLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

SIR CHARLES DARLING. The recall of Sir Charles Darling has been much discussed in England, and we may add that the course adopted by Mr. Cardwell has been fully ratified by the verdict of public opinion. A fatal error, of a nature to lead to worse and more serious results from day to day, had been committed by the Queen's representa tive ; and the only practicable solution of the difficulty, without entering into questions which properly belong to the colonial authorities, was to recall the Governor. The despatch in which the Colonial Secretary discharges this un pleasant duty is remarkable for its clear exposi tion of the facts, and of the violated principles underlying them. Sir Charles Darling had not only mistaken his line of duty, but otherwise rendered his continued administration of the Gorernment impossible. Had he, like Mr. Cardwell, left the dead-lock be tween the Assembly and the Coun cil to adjust itself by constitutional means, all must hare ultimately gone right, howev...
