Collie Coal. ? * ? We are informed that 40 tons of coal taken fromthe Collie Coal Fields, have now been delivered, by the con tractor, Mr. R. H. Rose, Jnr., on the railway line at the Collie crossing, brought down for testing on the rail way. The first trial will be made on Monday, in the furnace of the engine of the train from Perth £o Bunbury. The coal is being taken out of a drive near the Collie River, the seam, being about 17 feet in thickness, and when .first struck in the drive, there was really a fine sample of about 6 inches thick in the bottom of the seam. This superior sample has been gradually increasing in thickness and quality as the drive lias extended, until it is now of a thickness of 6 or 7ft.
