The Observer (Auckland) is responsible for the following ;— ‘ ‘As the Waitaki, bound for Wangarei, was rounding the North Head, the passengers were surprised by the engines suddenly stopping. Going o~i deck they saw the light of a vessel apparently coming straight towards them. This eventually proved to be the Government steamer Stella, which, on coming close, ran deliberately across the bows of the Waitaki. But for the care exercised by Captain Edie a collision would most certainly have eventuated. He (Captain Edie) shouted, *’ Where the d are you going ?” but no reply came from the Stella. Now the question arises, ought this sort of thing to pass unnoticed, and why don’t Captain Edie report the Stella ?” SHIPPING TELEGRAMS. Auckland, Yesterday.
