THE DAILY POST.
A WONDER OF THE WORLD--THE
Most persons have probably been at a loss , to
imagine the motives which could have induced
any one to embark in so costly an enterprise as
the building of a steam , vessel of dimensions so
disproportionate to those of any yet afloat, as
this ship. The undertaking has been naturally
attributed to the mere ambition of accomplish
ing an enterprise in nautical architecture, Ishio,h
shall not be outdone, From the hazards which
so large a ship must run, of encountering un
known rooks, even in the most frequented seas,
at depths which have never yet beerseoundeci,from ,
the small number of ports in the world into which
au large a ship eau enter when loaded, and the
smaller number that can furnish a fall cargo for
her, especially within the space of time which so
Costly a ship could afford to wait for it to be ool
lected—it has been naturally inferred that mob
s, ship cannot re profitably' employed in any
known branch of trade at the present time, at
least with the chances of such a degree , of suc
cess as can indemnity her owners for the hazards
run in the execution of a work so novel in its'
character, that most of it must be carried on al
most wholly without any guidance from practi
But we learn from au interesting history of
this enterprise, containing a detailed description
of the structure of the ship, with °epic:Willits
trauon, lately published in the Londomillustrd
red .Tinzes, that the project was not undertaken
without calculation. It is there stated that the'
design of the construction of the Leviathan by,
Mr. Brunnel, its principal projector, by the im
possibility that any steamer hitherto built should'
carry her own coal for eo long a voyage as 'film
England to Australia, which, it practicable,.
would obviate the necessity of deviating from the
most direct course—a .d also, the loss of time
consumed in taking in coal, with the ruinous ex
pense thereby incurred.
To enable a steamer toperform the Australian
voyage, it is said to bo'ueoessary for her to hive
depots of coal at St. Vincent, the Cape of Goad
Hope, and the Matfritius, besides one in Atlitra
ha for her return voyage.. The coal for the Auk
ply of all those stations must be carried treat
England by' means of a fleet olcolliersciespatched'
iu advatice, and when • received on board at the'
expense of a material deviation from the direct.
route, it is essentially deteriorated in quality by
repeated shittings. It is stated that the beet and
quickest steamer hitherto constructed, vial'
made the passage from England to Australia In
sixty days, and obtained the prize as the fastest.
steamer that had made the voyage, lost £lOOO
by the operation, although she had a full cargo,'
and a full complement of passengers bilith ways.
it is added that other steamers have lost from
£lO,OOO to £12,000 by the voyage, and that steam
has ceased to be profitable in this trade, clippers
having superseded them.
To show the length of the voyage to Australia
by several routes, and that the direct ocean ,
route is the shortest, the following ,statement is
quoted from the report of the Eastern Steam
avigation Company ;
The navigable distances from Lands End to Port
Philip are as follows:
Via Cape of Good Hope,
" Cape Horn,
Giberaltar, Malta Alexandria,
Aden Point de Gallo and Sing
apore,inoluding transit through
Panama, including transit
across the isthmus, 12,678 "
In view of these facts and others, tending to
show the importance of an improved system of
navigation fur sustaining the intercourse with
Australia, Mr. Brunnel went into a course of
reasoning, to show that to prosecute successfully
a system of steam navigation between England
and Australia, steamers should be built capable
of taking on board on their departure from Eng.•
land a sufficient supply of coal for not only the
onward, but for the return voyage. He assumed
that a steamer to pursue a long voyage mimesis:
luny with the fuel taken on board at her port of
departure, should be of a tonnage nearly equal
to the number of miles measuring the length of
From reasoning on this hypothesis. he came
to the conclusion that a steamer to be adapted
Lu the Austrauliau trade should be of a burthen
not less than 20,000 or 25,000 tons. Poi. en
suring the efficiency and satisfactory manage
ment of so large a vessel, he suggested the ex
pediency of plait/10:1g it with not less than two
independent propelling powers, and as the most
effective made of giving sufficient strength to
a vessel of the nepeeeary length, he recommend
ed the introductisn of the principle of Mr. Rob-,
&rt. 6tepheneon's tubular bridge, as the only
mode of giving to the structure the greatest
strength wnere it is most wanted. These three
principles form the nucleus of the plan of the
Tue design and construction of the iron hdll
of this ship is due to the genius of Mr. Scott
Ituleell, the design being formed on the princi
ple of " the wave line of construction, "
was succeestally introduced by him in England
in the building of steamers some years ago,
atter many years of study and experimental
labor. It la stated that the Leviathan, so far as
her lines are concerned, is but a magnified copy
of the Little Wave boat built by Mr. Russell
several years ago. in the article from which We
derive most of the foregoing facts, it is stated
that the principle of the wave line of construe.
tiou was brought to the notice of the British as
sociation twenty-years ago, and that they then
recognized the value of it. Mr. Russell subse
quently demonstrated its value of building
steamers upon the principle, two of which, it is
said have been running for the last twelve months
between New Haven and Dieppe, their average
of speed in all weathers being seventeen miles an
hour, and their maximum speed nineteen mile,s.,
Although partially introduced with success-in
steam vessels in England some years ago, the
writer adds, "still predujdico opposed its nitro
cluction in the construction of our sailing vessels
,American clippers constructed on the
wave line principle by Mr. McKay of f Boston
triumphantly demonstrated its value."
The Leviathan is so constructed as to he work
ed by three independent propelling powers,
the screw, the paddle engine, and the sail. Her
screw propeller is 24 feet in diameter and of 36
tons weight,. it being far the largest ever egm
eructed. The ahead destined to move , the
screw is 160 fent in length and of 60 tons freight
and this shaft is to be put in motion by horizon
tal steam engines, earn of a. nominal horse
power of 1,000, with tour cylinders of 84 inchee
diameter cud 4 feet stroke. These are said to
be the largest engines over built for Marine par
passe, each being a complete separate engines
capable of working independently of the other
and of working together, Vita a joint poWerof
6500 horses. In addition to the crew, acting
with this power in pushing the ship forward from
the stern, there wilt be on each side of her an,
1:OLUellE0 paddle wheel 56 feet in diameter and
weighing 185 tons—each wheel having 80 floats'
13 lett by 3—each propelled by enormous
engines, butlt by .Mr. Scott. Russell on the.
oscillating principle. These engines are of 1000
.nominal nurse power, with 5 oylindera or 74
tactics' diameter and 14 feet stroke, working 14
strokes a minute, and with steam in the boilers
at 15 lbs, 16 strokes, giving a power by the pad
dle-engines of about 5000 horses. Each pair
of cylinders form a co mplete separate engine,
and each of the four cy linders is so constructed
as to permit instant disconnection from the other
three if required
