THE AUSTEALIAN SYDNEY, SATURDAY, MARCH 19, 1870. A Gigantic Project. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 March 1870
THE AUSTEALIAN SYDNEY, SATURDAY, MARCH 19, 1870. A Gigantic Project. WE have reason to believe that Mr. Gran*;, whether knowingly or accidentally, has merely stolen a march upon, or at least antici pated, by his notice of motion in thc Victorian Assembly, a project which has been long in con templation here, for the construction ol a great trunk line of railway through tho Australian continent, from b'outh. to North. We must await the arrival of later Melbourne papers to learn tho details, and the arguments in sup port, of Mr. Grant's project j but we take the opportunity of saying at once, that tho merit of thc originality in thc conception by no means belongs to him or to the colony of Victoria, groat enterprise of this kind has been under careful consideration in this colony for many mouths past, and some thing like a programnio, or prospectus, is ready for public inspection. The idea is, we believe, to cngago tho attention of capitalists in Great Britain and all over Europe, as ...
