The 'Romulus,' anchoied off the North Head, made sail this morning, and prepared to woik up the harbor; but the wind increased to a severe gale, and she was obliged to clew all up again. The 'Indian Empire' in woikmg up the haibour. missed stij s, and was obliged to anchoi abreast the lower part of Oiaki Bay. The seventy of the weather the past two days has rendered coiutmmic.itioii with the shipping difficult, and we can Bympathisewith the new arrivals being prevented fiom meeting their friends. The following is the list of passengeis by the s.s. ' Airedale,' from the Southern Provinces : — Major McNeil!, Messis Harrison, John Corrain, James H. Crawford, the Hon. the Poßttnaster-General, Captain Buckley, Mrs. Buckley and maid, Master Buckley, Miss Buckley, Mr. W. Teed, Mrs. Jones, Miss Hoggaid, Miss Margaiet Jones, Miss Eliza Jones, Mes«is.

On Friday, August 3, as the pilot was bringing the barque ' Edward Thoinhill,' from London, into harbour, she grounded on a mussel bank, near the Arrow Rock. No damago wns, however, sustained. — Ntlton Examiner,

The Bengal diselmi ,. .1 nil hej passengers—numbering upwaids of 200 — intu (•tuaiuers ab the Headi. Having only passengers on boaid sho does not come up to the port — Otayo Times, Ootober 9. The ' Aiicdale '_ roturned from the Bluff in the morning. At iliveiton the ' Guiding Star ' still temained on the beach, filled fore-aud-af t, and with the hull covered at high-water. Very heavy weather had beeu experienced on the Southland coast for several days. — Ibid The 'Sea Gull,' from Sydney, while beating in on Wednesday against a strong south-easter, lost her foretopmast in a squall when in stays. It broke off close to the cap, coming down on deck with all the sails, &c. The schooner bore away towards the Sugar Loaves, wheie she anchored, and after dealing away the hamper, beat in with fore-and-aft canvas and forefiail. A new fore-topmast was promptly made and set up yesteiday — Taranaki Herald, October 18. The Wanuanui STr.\MEn.--At a meeting of the shareholders, held yesteulay, it was lesolved to offer the command ot the vessel to Captain Linklator, who is so well known by his speedy tups in the 'Tyne.' If lie accept the appointment, the sbaieholdeis may cong atulato themselves on securing the services of so thoiough a seaman, and so tmstwoithy anil eneigetic a man. — Waitganiu Chronicle, October 2. The steamer ' Guiding Star ' was going out at 7a m. , on Satutday last, at dead low water, for Riverton, and is nunouied to have touched on the tail-end Sandspit, wheie she began filling with water so lapidly that Captain Fraser had to beach her near the Maori Kaik, wheie she now lies perfectly cosy, her bows out even at high water, her stern being under Boine three feet. At low water I believe she is dry fore and aft. All tho cargo saved, and of course all lives. Some talk of the old poio which had nover been pioperly henled bieaking out; it is pretty sine she would not stand Lloyd's Al , tust on the gndiron, — Daily Tunes, Oct 6. Deep Sly Whakf. — We aie glad to learn that this whaif, at piesent in course of constiuction by Messia. McLaggan and Thompson, is now f>o fai advanced, that in the course of another month, the laiger portion, up to, and including tho first projection, will be completed. The whole length of the whaif is intended to be 550 feet, while up to the piojection alluded to, the distance will be above 300 feet and the depth at low water 10 fret. We undei&tand that the operations of tho contractois have been materially letarded by the impossibility till within t\\ o months ago, of procuring timber fiom the sawmills at the Wanaiapa, and by tho stiong northwesterly gales which have mteriupted the dnving of the piles — Wellington Independent The fine Ameiican ship ' Noi 'wester,' which was engaged in the Melbourne and Otngo tiado last year, was towed up to Port (Jhalmeis by tbo ' Samson ' to day, having ai rived at the hcailb on Monday afternoon, aftti a very lapul pas.s.i<*c>. Sho left Melbourne on Monday the 29th ult , and, as fai as Cape Saundcid, made one of the best trips that have yet been made— having fcightcd that Cape bearing noithwaids after a mn of si\ days and five hours Dining most of the time she expenencod stiong westeily galas Subso qucutly she had veiy heavy weathci fiom the south wot, succeeded by calms, which detained hei until Monday afternoon, when she came to an anchor out side -Daily Times, Octobei 9 Wjifck — Tho schooner ' Ann,' Gieen, inastel, bound from the Heathcote for Kaiapoi, on leaving the mer on Monday afternoon, with a fiesh N.W. biee/e blow ing, was unfortunate enough to touch one of the outei locks on thu inner end of the bai, when she bioached to, and drifted bioadside on to the outer face of the lalge rock. A toleiable bea running at the time, the hull of the schooner was seriously damaged in a short time, and the piospect of getting her oft became hopeless. The ' Ann ' was piuiupally the property of Mi Ailunan, and had on boaid only a small caigo of coal. She was built in Auckland, and was msuied in the New Zealand ofhes. Tim schooners 'Emerald Isle' and ' Lucy James,' going out about the same tune, both touched the giound, the foimei losing her bo.it, and the latter sustaining some damage* fiom collision with the locks — Lyltdton Timcb, Sept 24. Titr Hlathcote — Rumoms are afloat that the Heithcotc is to be made a sepaiate poit of eutiy, but we cannot ascertain that .uij positive steps have jet been tikon to pioclami it Fiom what has been gathered lioin those mombeis who inteiested themselves on the subject at the Geneial Assembly, the undei standing theie was that tho Heathcote should rathei be bi ought withm tho limits of the Poit ot Lyttdton. To.make it a, separate poit of entiy seem-, to be one of those mistakes which aie the inevitable lesults of ignoianco of the locality and peculiar geogiaphy of Canteibury The Heathcote stands m the same illation to Lyttelton as Poit Chalmeid does to Duucdui To embauass the lighterage business between the two places with all the formalities the law lequnos between the two poits of entiy — all for a distance lepiesented by two or thiee houis m time seems to be a very serious mistake, ceitain to impose lefatiictions lather than create new facilities for the tiausaction of ltnpoit and export business. Even while the lailway is being finished, the Heathcote can never be moie than a meie landing placo foi impoits biought to Lytteiton m laige bottoms, though a few coastemniity occasionally bung bonded and tianshipped goods from Wellington and Dunedin dnect to the m«.r Wh.it seei)i-> leally to be lequiied as a tempoi.iry step towauls meeting thu requnomonts of the community pending the completion of the tunnel is, to place a pioper btatt of watei side olhceis in the Heathcote, to make it an mtegial pait of the Port of Ljttelton, and let goods go lound diiect from the vessels of tounage in Poit, in lighters undei the seal of tlie Customs, to be finally examined and cleared at tho Heathcote This plan would obviously expedite business But if mere hghteid aie to be put on tho footing of coasteis, and lequired to enter and cleai and be lestucted by the formal houis of business, we cannot conceive what gain the public will denve by tho decl.umg of a new port of entiy at what can only be termed the back door of the only poit of entry leally requisite. — Lyttelton Times, October Bth. t .
