ANTHRACITE FOR STEAM PURPOSES. Acco ding to the results arrived at by the experimental trip of the Great Britain ro Australia with this species of fuel, it would appear that it is admirably adapted for all steam purposes, and for ocean voyages has a grea' superi- ority over all other sorts 01 fuel, by showing an economy of 10 per cent stowing in a far smaller compass, creating no soot, ash, clinker, or dust, so as to choke the pipes, rendering it very unhealthy for the firemen, and covering tfie engines and ship with dus'. On her first voyage to Austra ia she consumed from 50 to 60 cwts. per hour, while with anthracite, the consumption in the 24 bouts never ex- ceeded from 30 to 40 tons—some days only fiom 15 to 20 tons. On leading Liverpool the Great Bfitain 00k 1000 tons of best Pembrokeshire anthiacite, and 300 tons-ot patent fuel. In the 13 days to St. Vincent, 380 tons were consumed there, 300 tous of Cardiff coal were taken [ in. After a voyage of 49 days she arrived at Pert Phillip, w ith upwards of 400 tons of coal in stock, having used about 820 tons from St Vincent, or 1200 tons on the whole. vn\age from Liverpool 'o Port Phillip. The men are 1 better able to stand their work with anthracite than with other fuel. No fans were required to increase the blast, and with an ordinary d'augh: it is perfectly easy and prac- I ticable, not only at all times to be enabled to generate steam, but likewise to maintaiu it.
