CHANGE IN THE AUSTRALIAN MAIL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 7 July 1860
CHANGE IN. THE AUSTRALIAN MAIL. , -SERVICE. ; A great change is about, to.take. place. in.the Australian mail. The directors of the Peninsular and Oriental Steam- Company, finding, after. 13 months' experience of their contract, that it entails a considerable loss, have definitively decided upon throwing up the contract. The present subsidy.is £180,000, of which one-half is payable by the colo nies, and the other half by the Imperial Govern ment; and the company's expense leads to a belief that the amount ought to be raised £25,000, in or der to afford them any margin of profit. Before the matter arrived at this present stage the com pany submitted to the present Government that, in consideration of an addition of £25,000 being added to the present subsidy, whereby the total would be raised to £205,000, and of the service being limited to between Australia and Point de Galle, instead of Australia and Suez, they would establish a fortnightly service each way, instead of monthly one, ...

A doctor was at once sent for, but when he arived he pronounced death to have taken place ...
