ANOTHER DISASTER.

THE TATJPO SUNK AGAIN. Narrow Escape of Those on Board. [by telegraph.] Auckland, To-day. The steamer Taupo, when being towed by the s.s. Wellington to Auckland, filled and sunk, 17 miles outside Tauranga. A stiff breeze was blowing at the time. It is supposed that some of the gear below the vessel gave way. The men aboard had barely time to escape, and lost everything. The vesser was cased in wood sheathing, which was secured by chains, and it is these latter which are believed to have given way.
