There are many indications that Australasia and its commerce are becoming more and more a matter worthy of oireful consideration in the great centres of mercantile activity of what are known as the Old and New Worlds. Tie latest evidonce that this is bo is the project now beginning to be Eeiiously takrn up io New Yoik for the establishment of a line of direct steamers to this fifth quarter of the globe. One of the papeis of that oity writes concerning the propos.il:—"lt has ken that a line of steamers between New York and Australia could be made to pay were it not for the fact that a return cargo would be difficult to obtain. Facts do not bear cut this supposition. Vessels are constantly plying between Australia and European ports, and no complaint is heard as to their losing money. But it has been 'suggested that a more certain means of making a line from New York profitable might be devised if a round trip from the States to the C*p9 of Good Hope and the coloniea, to return via Chinese and Indian ports, could be arranged. . . . For a return cargo coal coUld bo leaded at Newcastle or some other Australian poit for the Asiatic market." MOVEMENTS OF THE ITXION STEAM SHU?'COMPANY'S FLEfeT. Wednesday. October 23.
