Coal in New South Wales.
(per press association.)
Sydney, April 15. A seam of coal six feet thick has been discovered at Liverpool, twentytwo miles South-of Sydney* This seam is two thousand five hundred feet down, and the discovery proves beyond doubt that the coal seams are not thinning out toward^ Sydney to such an extent as was commonly believed; in fact it is a matter for consideration whether coal will not in future txvwofked under the city of Sydney, at a not much greater depth than the Liverpool find. Mr T. W. E. David, a geological sur- : veyor and one of the highest -iauthorir ties on coal measures in this colony, has determined that the western and southern coal seams, hitherto thought to be distinct, are one and the same,/ and only interrupted by intrusive' rocks.
