A NARROW SHAVE. Wellington, May 13.—The schooner Keni!worth, from Oamaru to Greymoufch, with general produce, was caught in a southerly pale on Friday and lost some of hor spars. The captain took her into Queen Charlotto Sound, but if the Waitapu liad not hove in sight and towed her out of danger she world probably have been lost, as she had got within 60ft of the rncks. The only thing that kept her off was the tide.

THE DIRECT STEAMERS. Shaw, Savill' and Albion Company's Arawa arrived at Plymouth on Friday evening, with her meat cargo in good condition. She left Lyttelton on April 4, and has thus made the run in thirty-six days gross time - an excellent record. Shipping Telegrams, Gbeymouth, May 12.—A few citizens chartered the steamer Aorere to visit Point Elizabeth Harbor anl take soundings this afternoon. About sixty persons were on board. They went into and all round the bay, get ing from c'gbt fathoms at low water to three an<J a-half fathoms, which was the least depth of water obtained. The bottom is of clay in the entrance, but inEide is of sand; no rock was found at all. Before entering the harbor it appeared small, but once inside it was found to be large and commodious, with water enough to float any vessel. The available space for vessels seemed to be about three timeß as great in area as at Lyttelton, but the general opinion was that it would cost a great deal of money. The impression was that Nature had outlined a harbor there roughly.
