« A RACE FROM LONDON. It is not often that two direct passenger steamers arrive from London within fifteen hours of cacli other, but this happened in the case of the Athenic and Tongariro. During the whole course of the voyage it has been a hard race between the two vessels and the result was a win for the Athenic. Her competitor had set out fiom London on a Tuesday, fresh from the dock and the hands of repairers. The Athenic followed on Saturday, and from London to Hobatt did her be6t to lessen the disparity. The Tongariro was first to reach Hobart by about nine hours, but the Athenic was first to get away. After a smart run across from Hobart she arrived in the harbour at 5 on Saturday afternoon, and the Tongariro was here fifteen hours later. Both vessels had the same weather conditions and both arrived ahead | of their time-tabled dates. THE AORANGI. BRISBANE, 21st February. The Aorangi has arrived from Vancoaser after a line passage.
