SCHOONER'S ROUGH VOYAGE. GALES IN THE PACIFIC. DUNEDIN, February 17: The American schooner Irmgard, which arrived from the Columbia River with timber this evening, after a passage of 70 days, experienced some rough weather on the voyage. Severe gales were encountered on the run down the American coast, with the result that the schooner sprang a leak. The captain states that over 30,000 ft. of timber had to be thrown overboard, and the leaks necessitated constant pumping with the gasoline engine and steam plant for the pumps. On arrival here the vessel still had about three feet of water in her hold. Owing to calms and contrary winds the schooner took about 20 days' to come down from the East Cape. .-'■'•■
