Wellington, To-day. Thes.s. Penguin is ashore at French Pass. The Wallace is standing by her, but her position is not considered dangerous. Further Particulars. Nelson, To-day. The s.s. Hawea arrived at the French Pass at 2 o’clock this morning, and found the Penguin jammed on one of the breaks in the reef. She lies about two of her own lengths from the beacon at Pass Point. At her bows there were 17 feet of water, and aft 18 feet at low water. She is straight through the reef, and is fixed by the rocks on both sides about abreast of the mainmast. The tide runs both ebb and flood straight with her. Part of her propeller was three feet dry at high water. She has laid on the tide and has not strained. At 5.40, when the Hawea left, she had made no water. The Wallace is still alongside, but on account of the strength of the tide, very little time is left for work. It is expected she will be got off when the tide next makes.
