TWO STEAMERS ARRIVE,
Lyttelton, 10.20 a.m.
The dull move on the waterfront was broken to a great extent this morning by the arrival of two steamers, and the ferry wharf pre« sentfid a much busier appearance than for some days peek. Otherwise the port was quiet and lifeless, the beggarly array of deserted wharves giving the harbour a very depressing appearance.
The first arrival was the intercolonial liner Manuka, which came into port about 7 o'clock from Melbourne via Hobart, Bluff and Dunedin. There was only a very email crowd on the wharf when she berthed, the hour being somewhat early.
A few pickets and other strikers were interested spectators of the landing of the passengers, mails and lug gage, but there was no comment or demonstration of any kind. No cargo was worked by the Manuka, which was lying ide all day, She will sail this evening for Sydney, via Wellington, on the arrival of tbo 5 25 p.m. train from Christcburch.
