CONSECRATION OF BISHOPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
CONSECRATION OF BISHOPS. Catholic Telegraph, November 18. On Tuesday, January 23, the Most Rer. Dr. Murray and the Most Rev. Dr. Quinn were consecrated respectively Bishops of Maitland and Bathurst, Australia, by his Grace the Archbishop of Dublin, in the pro-Cathedral, Marlborough-street. Within the memory of men still living there were only a few small Catholic missions on the great Australian con tinent, nearly equal in size to Europe. The progress of the Australian colonies became greater and greater every day, aid a prodigious impulse was given to it by the Onborery of the gold-fields aud the high price of labor. At an early period some missionary priests settled down amidst the Catholic populations and estab lished missions, which grew so rapidly that frequent and urgent demands had to be made to this country for priests to supply the spiritual necessities of an ever-increasing people. Places that had not been known a few years before became the centres of what are now great c...

Letters to the Editor. THE LOGAN RESERVE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE QUEENSLANDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
Letters to the Editor. THE LOGAN RESERVE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE QUEENSLANDER. -I remain, Sir, your obedient servant, ARTHUR PIMM. February 1,1866. SIR, —In your issue of Wednesday last, is a letter from a correspondent on the Logan, and as he draws my name unnecessarily into print, will you allow me to make a short reply. He seems to have no less than ten (10) roads shaken up in his brain, all connected with the Logan, and tells the Government in a very dictatorial manner which they are to adopt. But I think Government have some very able and respon sible officers in the Roads Department, who will without doubt do what is most useful to the general public. In regard to the memorial spoken of, about 80 signed it on the Logan, besides many on the Albert, and there was only one person who declined, and I believe he is the correspon dent of a newspaper. He gave as a reason that he had purchased other land down the river, and was interested in getting a new road further down ; another rea...
HIPPOPHAGY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE QUEENSLANDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
HIPPOPHAGY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE QUEENSLANDER. —Yours truly, NUTRITION SIR,-If beef and mutton get scarce, its well to have some resource to fall back upon; and this we have, in the numerous herds of horses to be found in some parts of these colonies. In " Contributions to Natural History," by a Rural D.D., the author expatiates on the nutritious qualities of horse-flesh, and quotes the celebrated French surgeon, Larry, who ap proved of horse-flesh for the soldiers and wounded in the French army. He gives his own experience as follows:—" We invite our readers to test its value, as we hare recently done, in a spirit of philosophical inquiry, and, we solemnly declare, without the slightest digestive remorse, though to the horror of our cook, a privileged old servant, who rules the roast, and us too sometimes! Misled by her imagination, and not following her nose assuredly, she declared that she perceived 'a fearful smell before the stuff came near the door.' After we had eaten delicio...
PRESERVING OF FRUITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
PRESERVING OF FRUITS. T. ONE of the greatest hindrances to the profit-&lt;*> able cultivation of fruit in Queensland at the present time, is the want of a market for its ready disposal; for of course when ripe it must be at once sold, very likely in an over stocked market, or its destruction and total loss to the grower is an inevitable consequence. We have no reason to wonder that such should be the case, as the quantity of fruit grown in the colony is rapidly getting out of all propor tion to the quantity consumed, although the case might be different were it potuible to spread the supply—of peaches or grapes, for instance— over double the period in which they are now brought to town. At the present time grapes, even of good quality, are a drug in the market, and are being hawked about town at 4d. per lb., or, as the day advances, at whatever can be got for them. The supply grown near town has been quite sufficient to supply the legitimate de mand, and as they are first...

THE BURRUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
THE BURRUM. We learn by a private letter from Mary borough, dated January 23, that the Burrum Creek, in which are situated the Maryborough coal mines, is very difficult of navigation, from the numerous shoals, and the narrow and intri cate nature of the channel. At the date of our informant's letter, the schooner West Hartley, which we are told does not exceed two feet in draught when light, had been in the creek for such a length of time that her master despaired of her ever getting out, although there were two pilots engaged on board. The ketch Reindeer, well known here, was sixteen tides in getting from the coal mines to Maryborough, with 50 tons of coal on board, and the John Weatherstone, which may be described as a ten-ton boat, was seventeen tides in performing the same journey with 20 tons of coal. The schooner Elizabeth entered the creek and made an attempt to get to the mines, but ultimately gave it up as impos sible, after having accomplished four miles in six days. These...
