THE WHECK OE THE S.S. TASMANIA. [by telegraph.] Sydney, August 10. Thirteen of the crew of the wrecked steamer Tasmania arrived in Sydney on Saturday in the steamer Tarawera from New Zealand.

Hailetf, trimmers : Charles Smith and Alexander Holmes, a.b.s. ; J. Ross, steward ; and E. Reid. On the voyage a suhscription was raised on their behalf. The story told confirms the account cabled from Wel lington, and the members of the crew stick to the view that has been pro pounded that the ship struck an un charted rock, and substantiate the I statements that no extraordinary excite ment existed on Itoard at the time of the disaster. The captain acted promptly and methodically, and did his best to allay any alarm. After it had been decided to head for Gisbcrne, a seaman named HoIiiips, who was in the captain's boat, describes the trip as qu...

Mr. Schlinke and his partner, Mr. Thos. Stevenson, have for years past been engaged in mining operations on Pil Imrra Goldfield, and have experienced all the vicissitudes of pioneering life in the North West.

PORT HEDLAND AS A HARBOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 27 August 1897

PORT HEDLAND AS A HARBOCR. The letter we publish elsewhere from the captain of the schooner Lady St. Albans, couceruiug Port Hedlaud, should prove especially interesting to residents of Pilbarra Goldfield. At last are the various mining- com munities about to be afforded those shipping facilities for which they have clamoured so long, and though Port Hedlaud will uot prove of the greatest utility until a railway has been constructed therefrom to Marble Bar, nevertheless the people of this district are content to go slowly yet surety. Capt. McKenzie speaks of the harbour under notice, as a man of wide maritime expeiieuce, and as such, his opinions are worthy of careful consideration and of credence. He considers Port Hedlaud second to no harbour on the Westraliau coast hctweeu Albany and Wyndharn, and one eminently secure for the larger class of coastal steamers to lie iu, for uot only is there the necessary depth of water, but the port is splendidly landlocked, and is commodious.
