ARRIVAL OF THE SHIP MAORI FROM i LONDON. The ship Maori, 703 tons, Captain D. T. Roberts, made the harbour early yesterday morniDg from London, after a tedious passage of 112 days. She brings a general cargo and 113 passengers, and again comes consigned to Messrs. Cruckshank, Smart, and Co. She left Gravesend on the sfch of October,but did not clear the Downs until the 10th of October, losing •ighfc of the Lizard on the evening of the 15tb. The Channel was finally cleared on the 19th of October, and a fair run of 32 days was made to the Equator. The Cape of Good Hope was passed on the 14th of December, 60 days out. There was then every probability of a smart run to Auckland, but strong adverse winds and gales caused a detention between the Cape and the meridian of Van Diemen's Land, e'ome of the gales were very severe, and on the 25th of December a revolving gale of great violence was encountered, the barometer standing as low as 28 "BU. The gale continued more or less severe until the 30th of December. The ship was then in latitude 45*34 S. and longitude 61*17 E. to latitude 43*36 S. and longitude 84*22 E. Tasmania was passed on Sunday, Jauuary 19 th, in latitude 45*24 in 92 days from the Channel. From thence northerly winds forced the vessel towards the coast off the Middle Island, and on the 30th January she was close up to the Three Kings at 9 p.m. ; from the darkness of the night, however, they were not visible. The ship's head was put on the other tack for the night.andin the morningthe Three Kings wereagain neared, but such was the hazy state of the weather that^only a glimpse was obtained. The ship then stood to N.E., and from that time until the 3rd February at 10 a.m. a revolving gale or hurricane was experienced, in the violence of which all the features of a cyclone were clearly defined. At noon on the 3rdinst., the gale having moderated, the ship was steered for Cape Brett, which was made at 6 a. m. on the 4th, and the anchorage in this harbour at 7 a.m. yesterday. We are glad to find the Maori still retains her name as a comfortable passenger ship. Since April, 1866, she baa conveyed upwards of 800 souls, four only of whom have died on the voyage, and those from natural causes. Oa the presen t voyage, Dr. Armitage comes in medical charge, and reports two deaths and two births on board. The deaths were from consumption, and hopeless cases before leaving London. They were — Mary E., wife of Thomas Morgm, aged 26 years ; and John Paterson, farmer, native of Glasgow, aged 26. The health of those on board has generally been good throughout. The only vessel spoken during the voyage, connected with the colonies, \ras a brig bound to Dunedin, with a cargo of teas from Shanghai. The following are the trades and occupations of the immigrants :— l4 farmers, 6 labourers, 6 servants, 1 butcher, 1 engraver, 3 carpenters, 1 sailmaker, 1 mason, 2 clerks, 1 draper, 1 surveyor, 1 smith, 1 chemwt, 1 shoemaker, 1 fireman, 1 engine-fitter, 1 cabinet-maker, L builder, 3 housewives, 2 farm ■ervants, 1 dressmaker, 1 soldier! ; 8 are described as gentlemen, 3 spinsters, and 7 ladies.

THE BRIG PRINCESS ALICE. The brig Princess Alice, Captain Kiddey, made the harbour yesterday morning, coal-laden for Wellington, having run in to repair damage sustained, during the heavy gale o£ Sunday and Monday last. She left the Bay of Islands, — where she had taken in 419ton8of coalsfromtheKawakawamines — atll a.m. on Saturday, with an E.S.E. wind. In the evening the wind increased to a gale, and blew from the eastward with such force that Captain Kiddey thought it prudent to heave to. On the following day the barometer itood at 28 73, and the wind blew with hurricane violencs, exceeding in severity»the experience of year?. As the barometer ro^e, the wind increased, veering to the E.S.E. again, and blowing with greater force than before. The tjale was at its height soon after midnight on Sunday, or early on Monday moroing. During its continuance the galley of the vessel was washed away, and a boat stove, together with other damage, and Captain Kiddey consequently bore up for Auckland to repair and examine the ship before continuing the voyage. She reports the schooner Excelsior having nearly completed her loading for Taranaki, when she left the Bay. The schooners Joanna and Zephyr were awaiting their turn to load. Captain Kiddey reports :— The brig left the Bay for Wellington at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Ist inst , with a fresh E.S.E. breeze and a heavy swell from N.8., with thick weather. At sunset wind veered to E, ; run till midnight, when we hove to in a terrific gale from S,E. with a coaconfuaed heavy sea. During this time the barometer was gradually falling. At daylight; on the 2nd the wind had veered south about to S.W., continuing so till noon. At 2 p.m. shipped a heavy sea, which washed away the galley and partially stove one of the boats. At sunset the barometer showed the lowest reading, 28*73. The wind inclined to veer to W., and from 8 p.m. till midnight it blew a perfect hurricane, with a dreadful confused sea; from this time till Monday the gale gradually decreased with a rising barometer, wind finally settling N.N.W. Monday at midnight the North Cape bore by compass S.W., distance about 64 miles. Bore up for Auckland, and brought up in harbour at noon yesterday. The brig behaved remarkably well, proving herself a capital seaboat.

STRANDING OF THE KETCH SPEEDWELL. We regret to learn that the ketch. Speedwell, of tbia port, was stranded at Omaha daring the severe gale on Sunday lust. She left Auckland for Whangaroa on Saturday evening, and ran into Omaha for Bhelter on the following day. She was built and. owned by Mr. Brown, of the Buy of Islands.
