The Victory sailed from the London Docks on the 4th and from Lands End on the 1 7tU <i October. She brings above ninety passengers to NVw Zealand, out of which twenty five are for Auckland, about the lime number for New Plymouth, and the remainder for Wellington, Wanganui, and Otago. She adopted the principle of circular sailing on the pasiage out and h«s performed it in much shorter time than the rrajority of vessel* that have formerly arrived here from England. She was as far south as 51° where she fell in with icebergs of immense lize, but seldom approached nearer than then eight or ten miles of them. She lighted Van Diemen'i Land when three month* from L»ndon. She spoke no vessels connected with tbcie col me*. The Helen S. Page sailed from Sydney on the 16th January, and after leavinir that port experienced N. Easterly, and N. N. Easterly winds for fourteen dayi, which terminated in a heavy g»le at N. E. on the 29th ultimo. Notwithstanding her tediou* passage only one heifer and fifteen sheep of the cargo were lost. The Helen S. Page spoke in Ut. 377 S«» lnn£. 160 E., the American whaler barque Newbury Port, of Stenington, 7 month* cut, 80 barrels oil, bound to the Arctic Sea; also, the American whale ship Marcia, of New Bedford, 5 months out, 50 barrels sperm and 50 barrels whale oil. Sue pasied the Clifford Wayne, American whaler, beating in towards the harbour of Wang>,roa. The Mot had not arrived on the 16th; she sailed from Kawau on the s*h nit., and would most likely arrive (very shortly after the Helen S, Page iailed. The brig Emma, Captain Fox, was advertised to s»il for Auckland on the 18th ult. The Enterprise has been out 6 months from Nantucket, ami is last from the Western Isles. She has token about 150 barrels sperm oil. She has put into this port for refreshments before" proceeding to Bherings' Straits, wheie she intends to cruise during the spring months.

English Ockan Steam Navigatiow —We hare alread> hud repeated occasion to refer to the gigantic enterprise the British government has in hand, to connect with a fl^et of the firit class, the West Indies, Mexico, Enizi], and the Pacific. The main fea'turei of the pUn are as follows : There ia to oe a great trunk line pt Bte«naers-»-Qr ti the Ti-.»es well calls it a «• (jrcnt «team bridge"— direct from Southampton to the lathmus of Panama; Every fortnight, a firbt-clasi sUartidr- i's to sail' from Southampton by this hne, stopping firit at the Inland of St. Thomas, which distance W, wiJl ,accoinpliph in about twelre daja. In St Thomas's Bay three branch
iteamers will be waiting; which, receiving their respective mails, will imtantly proceed on separate routes— one to Havannah and the Gulf of Mexico — another to Porto Rico, Hayti. Jamaica, San Jago tie Cuba. Honduras Nicaragua, &c. : a third to the Windward and Leeward Islands, as far a< DemerKM. The mail line steamer, having thu» disposed of its branch mails, will steam on from St. Thomas'i direct for the litile town of Chagres, on the isthmus of Pmama. Here it will disembark its Pacific mailt for transtniihion across the i«thmm; and receiving i,\ return the homeward mails floin the Pacific, will be ready for its return voyage. Steaming back to St. Thomas.'*, it will thrre find th« three branch steamers, whose return voyages from the three nbove men'intied routes will be so arranged that they shall always (except in case of accident) arrived in time to give and take mails with the trunk strame rs ; then it will proceed direct to Soutlmmpton, bringing the Pacific mails, and the mails of the. foregoing West India routes. 1. It is emulated that, by this system ot direct Atlantic steamers, an accelerated communication of from twelve to sixteen days will be secured for all the ports concerned. 2. To correspond with these arrangements for the Atlantic side of America, it is in contemplation by the Admiralty, " to agree with the Pacific Steam Navigation Company for a fortnightly mail to and from Panama and Valparaiso, in plnre of the present month, ly steamer." This will bring Ch«gre>«, and consequently England, into much cloger approximation to the western coast of South America. 3 There will be a monthly mail to Brazil, with an independent line of packets. " Starting from Snutha smpton the steamers will proced to Fonr-lial (Madeira) Santa Cruz (TmerifTfe,) Port Praya (Cape V rde,) Pernambucco, Bahai, and Rio Janeiro. From Rio there will he a branch packet to Monte Video and Buenos Ayrei." The distance between England and the Brazilian ports, according to the preceding arrangements, will be as follows. — To Pernambucco eighteen or nineteen days: — Bahia, twenty or twenty-one days;— Rio de Janeiro twenty-four or twenty five davit. The Brazil line may be ready by August or September next. The sum of £240,000 per annum new paid to the West India Mail Company for the conveyance of the West India nnils alone, will, it is understood, suffice to cover the expenses of the whole propoied system; besides which there will be a retrenchment of £30,00fl a year now snent in maintaining of Her Ma. jesty'i brigs between Falmouth nnd Brazil. All this, we may say in conclusion, increases the peremiitoiy necessity of the great canal acrois Panima, which will sweep the little town of Cbasrres out of its present impudent littleness into nothingness.
