As will be seen below, there have been only two English arrivals during the month, and one departure for England, but the Sydney and Southern trade has been earned on with vigour. We have had 3 Sydney, 1 Melbourne, and one Newcastle arrival, the firstnamed including the Airedale (s.s.), which brought the English Mails : and departures — 3 for Sydney (including the mail steamer), 1 for Callao, 1 for Shanghai, and 1 for Newcastle, N.S.W. Our arrivals from the South are 11, and our departures 15. The direct trade with Melbourne has been re-opeued by the Gazelle, the property of Messrs. Henderson and Macfarlane. The ships of the Intercolonial Mail Company have settled down steadily to work, and are gaining good names for punctuality. Indeed, both they, and that smart steamer, the White Swan, surprise us every now and then by their appearance quite unexpectedly. We re-publish our reports of the outward voyages of the two English vessels — the Maori and Harwood : — The Maori, Capt. Petherbridge, arrived in harbour on Wednesday morning, and went at once alongside the wharf. , Her dates are — Gravhsend the 11th of July, the meridian of the Cape on the 20th September, and the Three Kings on the 27th ult. Four deaths occurred on the voyage : Mr. Herbert Page, on the 29th ult., and 3 children at different dates. The Maori is an old New Zealand liner, and well known in the South, where, on her first arrival, her name, and her tattooed figure-head, gave great delight to the natives. She has made several voyages both to Nelson and other Southern ports, and since her last one to Nelson, has been in the Crimea and to China. The Maori was one of the vessels which rode out the gala in Balaklava harbour, when so many vessels were lost. Capt. Petherbridge has "always been spoken of in the highest terms by his passengers, and we need only say that those whom he has brought to Jt uckland appreciate him as highly as his old friends in the South. — Southern Cross, November 4. The Harwood, the news of whose departure from • London we received by the last English mail, arrived here on Wednesday, after a passage from land to land of 94 days. She was off the Scillies on the 13th Aug., - and sighted Cape Ortegal on the 16th. The N. E. trades were not very favourable, 2nd, after a succession •of light winds, the line was crossed on the 13th Sept. " ' in long. 170 W. The S. E. trades were moderate. The Harwood passed to the south of Tristian d'Acunha, where, on the Ist October, she sighted a six topsail ship steering S.S.E., which was conjectured to be the Shooting Star. In lat. 47° 10' and long. 46° 47' two large icebergs were sighted on the 16th Oct. Captain Forseyth had intended passing to the south of Van Diemen's Land, and of Stewarts island, but on account of heavy winds and seas from' the S. determined to change his course and ran into Bass' Straits on the 6th instant, leaving them on the Bth at 3 p.m., and making thence a splendid run to New Zealand. The Harwood made the Three Kings on Monday last at 4 p.m., and rounded the Cape at mid-night. She was at her anchorage by about 5 p.m. on Wednesday. We congratulate Captain Forsayth on his voyage, and on the general appearance of his ship, which is certainly greatly improved since his last visit. We noticed that she had been newly coppered. The passengers have been healthy during the voyage, though one of the steerage passengers, a Mr. Andrew Webster died, we believe of comumption. No births or marriages occurred. — Southern Cross, November 18.
