THE LIGHT SHIP "ROSE." Sin,-A paragraph appeared in your local   contemporary of the 11th announcing that he was desired by Captain Bell to state that the light ship Rose was of no use where she is, and hoping the Government would remove her back to Brisbane, or place her in the middle channel, as his chief officer had to light all tho beacons. If Captain Bell thought the light ship was in the wrong place,   courtesy ought to have induced him to write to the Harbour Mastor, or Chairman of the Pilot Board, calling attention to the matter. A question has been asked in the house as to whether the government were satisfied that the light ship-Rose was in tho host place for the greatest use, and the following may en- lighten the public more upon the subject. Shortly after the light was established at Cape Moreton, the Rose light ship was moored at an angle in tho ship channel, near the buoy B, to enable vessels to enter the port after dark.
