NARROW ESCAPE OF THE HAWEA AND HINEMOA.

[bt telegraph.] Auckland, To-day. The steamers Hawea and Hinemoa arrived off the Manakau bar on Sunday morning. The wind was blowing strong off the land, and the weather was thick and raining. About 12 o’clock the Hawea steamed to the north of the entrance, and having proceeded a short distance she grazed on the bottom and in a few moments grounded. The Hinemoa was close behind and also grazed the bottom, but fortunately managed to get her engines reversed before the vessel became fast. Captain Johnson stood by to see if the Hawea would float off, which she did at high tide, and stfeamed up to the wharf not having sustained any injury.
