MACDERMOTT BROTHERS' STOCK AND STATION REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 5 January 1878
MACDERMOTT BROTHERS' STOCK AND STATION REPORT. Stations.—We have nothing of importance to report under this head; there are very few &nbsp; properties changing hands, and the demand is rather slack at present. We have some fine Western properties, stocked and unstocked, in our hands for sale, some of which are splen- didly watered. We have sold the Planet Downs Station, Springsure district, with the cattle thereon, at £4 per head, on account of &nbsp; the London Chartered Bank, Sydney, T. B. Moffat, Esq., purchaser. &nbsp; Fat Cattle.—There is a good demand at ad- vanced prices, and really prime cattle are &nbsp; scarce. We quote prime bullocks at £6 10s. to £7 ; cows, £1 less. We have sold, on account of Messrs, Black &nbsp; and McKay, Tilpal, 200 bullocks and cows, bullocks at £6 10s., cows at £5 10s. ; 100 cows on account of Messrs. Button and Christian, &nbsp; at £5 12s. 6d. ; 80 bullocks on account of T. B. Moffat Esq., Planet Dow...

ENGLAND AND THE EASTERN QUESTION. LONDON, January 3. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 5 January 1878
ENGLAND AND THE EASTERN QUESTION. LONDON, January 3. Earl Carnarvon, in addressing, a deputation of Cape Colonists, said England was not pre- pared to bolster up Turkish interests as such, but was firmly resolved to have a voice in the final settlement of the present difficulties. He made some remarks on " Keeping the peace,", observing that England had not offered to mediate between the belligerents as was supposed, but had merely conveyed to the Russian Government certain overtures for peace made by the Porte. It is stated that the Turks have proposed to the Russians an armistice on the basis of an uti possidetis, or the maintenance for a time of their respective positions. &nbsp;
The Scarlet Hat. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 5 January 1878
The Scarlet Hat. We are informed by cablegram that Cardinal Manning has received his Hat. This is the scarlet hat—the chief mark of a cardinal's dignity, and gives right of entrée to the Sacred College. The recipient is the Rev. Henry Edward Manning, D.D., Roman Catholic Archbishop of Westminster, who is now in his 69th year. According to our authorities, his Eminence was the son of a London mer- chant, and was educated at Harrow, and Balliol College, Oxford, where, in 1830, he graduated B.A. in first-class honours. He remained for some time afterwards at the University, being one of its select preachers ; but in 1834 he was appointed Vicar of Lavington and Graffham, in Sussex ; and in 1810 we find him Archdeacon of Chichester. These preferments he resigned in 1851, when he joined the Roman Catholic Church and entered the priesthood. He was made the Provost of St. Mary's, Moorfields, and had conferred on him the degree of Doctor of Divinity, and the title of Monsignor. He published ...
CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 5 January 1878
Late telegrams state that the match between &nbsp; the Australian Eleven and the Combined Fifteen resulted in a tie. If correct the result is extraordinary, but the probability is that "draw" should be the word. This is by far the strongest team the eleven have yet encountered, as will be seen by the following list of the players :—New South Wales : Coates, Evans, Geary, Gregory, Powell, Sheridan, Scanlan, Thompson. Victoria : Allee, Baker, Cooper, Elliott, Gaggin, Gibson, Hodges. The intercolonial cricket match was con- cluded on the 27th of December, and resulted in a victory for New South Wales by one innings and six runs to spare, the scores being: New South Wales 210 ; Victoria, 79 first innings, and 125 second. Coates and Evans bowled for the Sydney team, the trundling of the former being very effective. Nat Thompson made a capital score of 73, Coates being the not out man with 36 to his credit. A match between the Charters Towers and Townsville knights of the willow t...
Magisterial Enquiry. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 5 January 1878
Magisterial Enquiry. THE Police Magistrate held an enquiry in the &nbsp; Court House yesterday afternoon into the cir- cumstances attending the sudden death of the late Mrs. Watson, when the following evi- dence was elicited : Dr. Joseph Mark deposed that he was lately Surgeon-Superintendent of the Scottish Hero, and on Monday last he was requested by Dr. Salmond to see a woman who was ill at Mr. Dibdin's office; he went there in a buggy, in company with Mr. Dibdin, and found the woman seated in an easy chair, in Mr. Dibdin's inner office; he felt her pulse, which was almost absent, an occasional beat only being detected; she was breathing stertorously ; her pupils were insensible and contracted, and he informed Mr. Dibdin that she was dying, and the only thing that was to be done was to apply cold applications to her head and have her removed as soon and as quietly as possible to the nearest place for medical treatment ; Mr. Dibdin got the police to remove her to the vehicl...

Annual Meeting, March 18, 19. North Australian J.C. Annual Meeting, March 29, 30, April 1. ¶ Balonne J.C. Meeting, April 11, 12. Northern Downs J.C, Annual Meeting, April 11, 12. THOSE persons who indulge the idea that race horses of the present day are deficient in staying powers, will find that theory consider- ably upset by the result of the late Victorian Champion Race. That the race would be run in quick time, every one who had watched Chester's wonderful performances was ready to admit, but that the three miles should be &nbsp; travelled is 5 minutes 26 seconds seems indeed &nbsp; extraordinary, being, if I mistake not, the &nbsp; second quickest time on record in any country, &nbsp; the fastest being that of Rataplan who ran the &nbsp; same distance is 5...
