The Monumental City.-The Board, which recently . sat -at Sydney, entirely exonerates Captain Adams

The New Screw Three-declted Man of War.-The Duke of Wellington, lal, screw three-decker, Captain H. I). Martin, C.B., in the steam basin, got her funnel up yesterday morning and lighted her fires, the machinery being ready for trial It reflects no small amount of credit on the engineer department of this dockyard that the gigantic motive, power of this colossal ship should have been got ready for trial by the very day intended-the commencement of the íinsneial year considering the delays and trouble in getting her machinery piecemeal from the Clyde, for the want of efficient transport accommodation in the .first instance. No one who Baw the engine-room of this Ship a fortnight ago would have imagined she could have bad steam up yesterday, but so she haul, and what is more -creditable to chronicle, there was no mishap, no scalding of the engineers by escape of ste*m, ¿te, but all the mighty parts-worked weil, ant exhibited but the slightest symptoms si warm bearings from the newness of the gear. Many officers and strangers assembled to witness the first working of the screw in this famed ship, and among them .no ' less a personage than Captain Is. Bourgeois, tbe second

captain - of the celebrated French screw line of battle ship Napoleon, who attentively inspected, inside and out, the Duke of Wellington. Rcar-Adiniril Fan flbaw, and many other«, were also present. The result of tho "stcam'-up trial" was deemed eminently satifaetory, twenty revolutions having been attained. The next highest Spring tides are on the.9th and 10th, nnd it is intended the Duke shall go out for public trial »t Stokes, Bayon the former of those'days, or on Monday the Uth -Home News, i»th April.

I ' líastern, Jloule lo Australia-A proposal is* being

agitated for a new eastern route to Australia by way

of tbo Red Sea. A canal .would havo to be' made across the Isthmus of Suez, which is of Httlo elevation, I and in somo places under tho level of tbo sca3 it

scpnratcs. With a canal across tho Isthmus ol' Darlen and auothur from tho Mediterranean to tim Red Sen, I the voyage by cither route to tbo Antipodes would bo

very materially shortened.
