Notes on Passing- Events. -(By :Kecow-eb.) '': In continuing the review of the tnany natural advantages of Devonpprt,ni1entibn can be made of its' snug little harbor. Years ago Government decided: upon Stanley, Burnie' and Devonport' as the' three ports of the North-'West Coasts and improvements were setron loot- to t rentier-, them capable of receiving the intercolonial trade. Step by step, under the fostering care of the Mersey Marine Board, the Mersey harbor has been greatly improved so that all but the very largest vessels' trading here can enter at any time of the tide, at any hour of the day ornight, and in any weather. This is a solid asset which, with the ready facilities for shipping, cargo, consequent upon the railway lines at West Devonport running, alongside the steamers, make it a favorite' place of call with the captain and owners of inter colonial steamships.
