OUR MERCANTILE STEAM MARINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 August 1864

OUR MERCANTILE STEAM MARINE. ['FROM THE S. M. HBKALD.'] The colony of New South Wales, although forming but part of a great whole in the By stem of Australian colonisation, occupies so prominent a position in the commercial relations of the world, as to constitute its chief port, Sydney, the principal depot for tho sur rounding countries. Although it has. a powerful rival in that of Melbourne with whom to share this honor, yet the harbor of Port Jackson, from its geographical position, great dimensions, safety, and small tidal in fluence, makes it a natural dock, requiring but litiJe im provement to facilitate its) usefulness ; and which is farther increased by the proximity of the cool-fieldB of the Hunter River district on the north, and those of rWollqngnng and Bulli on tho. south, affording advan tages of a ready supply of fuel for the use of steam vessels, forges, factories, and manufactures requiring a large consumption.

THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 August 1864

PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 August 1864

FORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS. Tho Island of Mauritius has gradually risen to a position of considerable importance in commerce, as the source whence large supplies of sugar are annu ally obtained. Tho Australian colonies are, in. fact, most wholly snppliod with this important article of domestic consumption from the plantations of the island. Its geographical situation in 20 ° S. lat., and 57 ° E. long. Its fine climate and rich soil, and espe cially its safe and capacious harbor— advantages con forred by nature— have all contributed to give it the value and importance it can now boast. Its first dis coverers, the Portuguese, in 1505, found it destitute of aboriginal inhabitants, and; they seem to have made no efforts to settle it, or turn 'tho possession of it to good account. „ The Dutch, who succeeded them in 1644, and held it for about seventy years after, appear: to have better appreciated thenatural endowments of, the place, and they, therefore, with the- energy that- distinguished t...

THE MALMSBURY VIADUCT .AND SITE OF THE COLIBAN RESERVOIR [from, a photograph by A. Morris and co.] — see page 10. THE MALMSBURY VIADUCT AND SITE OF THE COLIBAN BESERVOIR. We give elsewhere an engraving of the Malmsbury Viaduct, which crosses the Coliban Creek, near the township of Malmsbury, though which the Melbourne, Mount Alexander and Sandhurst Railway passes. As is well known, this is one of the main lines of the Go vernment which, have been constructed in this country by means of the loan, whose , debentures are well understood and favored on the London Stock Ex change. This viaduct is one of the finest pieces of work along the whole extent of this, line, about 100 miles, and as will be seen, it was designed strictly with a view to stability and strength, and but little architectural decoration has been bestowed in the finish of it. Its length from one abutment to the other is 492 feet, its width is 32 feet, and its level over the creek is 76 above the surface of the water. Th...
