LOSS OF OCEAN STEAMERS. Ocean steam navigation, says tho New- York Journal of Commerce, affords a pretty severe test of enterprise, when wo consider tho pecuniary hazards with which it has to contend, arising from defective management, distribution of patronage, and perils of tho sea. From its earliest history, disasters havo been frequent, mid seem to become moro numerous in proportion as the number ol' steam- ships is increased. Going back to the memorable loas ol' the President, in 18-11, the principal disasters to British mid American steamers, mostly running on Transatlantic routes, may bo summed up as follows : Valus of Veras! und Cavgo.

PROESCHEL'S MAP OF VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 7 July 1860

PROESCHEL'S MAP OF VICTORIA. We have been favored with a copy of Proeschel's Desk and Travellers' Map of Victoria, which is a beautifully executed work of art and contains on a small surface a really astonishing amount of information. Distances, roads, ranges, water-courses, telegragh -lines, gold fields, the boundaries of counties, &a , are given with great distinctness whilst, in the shape of foot notes is a vast amount of most valuable statistical information. The Map includes portions of the Colonies of New South AVales and South Australia, and the position of the Kiandra diggings is clearly laid down. Several pages of explanatory letter press comprising an Index with reference-figures of all the Towns, Rivers, Creeks &c. of Victoria are bound up with the M.ip in a neat pocket cover, and on the whole we may commend the production as being most complete.

The subject   -"The Advantages and Pleasures of Knowledge" -was handled by Mr Rout in a peculiarly able and impressive manner. The attendance was unu-       sually large and most respectable-Mr Rout's       previous admirable lecture (being his first) having   justly inspired a desire all but universal in the localitv to benefit by his second. Of the crowded and most attentive audience we feel assured none   capable of comprehending the important truths   brought under their notice and with such genuine eloquence-such convincing argument and illus- tiation-urged on their consideration went away   disappointed.
