To the above table of altitudes, I may add a few other of the more important results which the hypsometrical survey furnishes.

1st. As regards New South Wales: —

The mean altitude of the divisa aquarum, in that colony, is 3500 feet above the level of the sea.

The average full of its eastern rivers is estimated at 48 feet in every mile. The average slope of the land, produced by the transversal spurs, is 96 feet.

The average fall of the westerly waters is 9 feet in every mile; that of the country within 72 miles from the crest of the dividing range is 20 feet.

2d. As regards Van Diemen's Land: —

The mean height of the divisa aquarum is 3750 feet above the level of the sea.

The average fall of the eastern rivers is estimated at 93 feet in every mile; and the average fall of the country, at 120 feet.
