The Colonial Union Company, Limited, known as Tyser’s line, have added two new steamers to their fleet—viz., the Star of Victoria, 3,240 tons register and 2,100 i.li p., and the Star of England, 3,450 tons register, and 2,400 i.h.p.

Several changes have taken place in the personnel of the officers of some of the Union Steam Ship Company’s steamers.

Mr Stanley, late quartermaster, now occupies the rank of fourth officer.
