There scorns no end just now to news con nected with the mercantile trade, On the top of the Bensation cau-eJ by the proposed new company comes the informal ion of an important transaction in connection with the New Zealand Shipping Company. Some of the papers state that the lien which Sir William Pearce held on the company has been bought by the British India Steam Nav'eation Company, but that is incorrect. The line has been purchased by Mr Dawes, who is Sir W. Maokinnon's lieutenant. It does not amount to the same thing, for it means much more, as will be seen. Mackinnon and Co. are the most impoitant trading firm in England, if not in the world. In their hands at present are the Biitish India Steam Navigation Company, and most of the shipping tiade of India ; the Austiahuian United Steam Navigation Company, which does all the coasting trade in Au tralia; and the British East Africa Company. It is well known ia financial circles that Mackinnon sent on*; Stanley to relieve Emin Paaha, and quite recently he wished t > send out Josepy Thomson to relieve Stanley, only tho project fell through by reason of a quirrel with the explorer. Sir Francis De Winton is his lieutenant in tho Bsitish East Africa Oompany,andMrDaweßhislieutenantinotheraffairs. The purchase by Mr Dawes of the lien on the New Zealand Shipping Company for L 300,000 means, thrn, a great deal, for it giveß Mackinmn the option of using the boats for any purposa ho may think fit. I hea*- that the Slipping Company's directors are much annoyed at the transfer, for thoy had no 1 ; the option of pre-emption given them, and they naturally feared that tho action of Sir W. Mackinnon might prove di jadvantage.Ais to them. /s a man well versed in these matters Baid to me: "Maokinnon may take the boats Rnd use them in tho Qaernsland trade." As a matter of fact, however, I am in a position to state that there iB no Intention of doing this, thouzh the purchase of tho lien was made with a view to tho improvement of the Queensland trade. Mr Dawes, acording to my informant, says frankly " What I want to do is this: We are much interested in the Queensland tr*do. and I have come to the conclusion that the frozen meat trade can bo enormously doveloped there. I want, therefore, to get at the back of the trade and go thoroughly into it. so that I may develop tho Queensland business. New Zealand is the centre of the trade, and I have chosen the Shipping Company us likely to givo me facilities f r accomplishing my object." This is, in effect, his object. The new arrangements, then, will be that Mr Strickland goes back to the management here, but Mr Tyßer retains his position aB broker. The intention is to work amicably with Phaw, Sivill, and Co. The Board will not be interfered with, and the trade in New Zealand will be pui-hed, as well eb that in Queensland. I loam from another source that Mr Tyi-er is building two new boats, so that it is his intention also to push on the trade, but whether this is in conjunction with Mackinnon I have not yet discovered. —London correspondent of the Presß.'
