The schooner Lizzie Ellen Bailed yesterday afternoon for Foitroee. Referring to tho schooner V. TJ. Camoron, which went ashore at the Bluff, the ' Lyttelton Times' says :—" The schooner E. U. Cameron was one of tho oldest vessels belonging to Lyt telton. She was a vessel of 41 tons register, and of tho following dimensions i 68ft 6inlong, 17ft Sin beam, and Oft depth tf hold. She was built at the Heathcote Valley in 1807, and waß then the property of Messrs Cameron Bros., for whom she traded for some time. She afterwards changed hands, but continued to run, chiefly in the timber trade, between the Heathcote, Lyttelton, and the Bays on Banks Peninsula, occasionally going farther afield. She is now tho property of Mr Goodman, of Christchurch, and Is uninsured. The old vessel was beginning to show signs of her twenty-two years' work, and some little time ago received considerable damage to her stern post, rudder, etc., through knocking against the wharf during a gale In Lyttelton. Thl damage was, however, repaired. . .„,,, „, ~ The last two additions to the White Star lino —the Teutonic and the Maje-tic—will bo rigged with taunt pole masts entirely destitute of yards, and this apparently is to be the latest fashion in steamer rig. At the same time, such an innovation is hardly adapted to any other vessels but those on the same principles as the two quoted above, and for this reason: they have each two Sets of engines working independently of one another to drive twin screwß, and thus being almost secure against absolute breakdown, they are able to afford to dispense with the auxiliary and necessary aids afforded by masts and sails under such circumstances.— ' Nautical Magazine.' " The next foreign vessels expected are the barques Thurso and D'Artagnan, from the Mauritius; Alice, which left New York on March 12, and is now seventy-seven days out; Glamis, from London (March 16), new seventyfour days out, and which was spoken on March 21 in latitude 48deg N., longitude 9deg W,; and the ship Oaitloch, from the same part, now seventy-five days out. I The Graft™ arrived at the Rattray Btreet wharf at 4 a.m. to-day. Purser Hunt Informs us she left Westport at 6 p.m. on the 23rd lost, and arrived at Nelson at 1 p.m. on the 24th ; j left at 3 p.m. on the 25tb, and arrived at Wellington 'at 5.30 a.m. on the 26th; left again at . 9, a.nv, and arrived at Lyttelton at 5 a m. on the '27 th, sailing again at U p.m.; called at THnartt, and reaoU'ed ' Durieditl 'tills morning. She'experienced fine weather from Westport to Nelson, thence strong N.W. winds with bad weather to Jackson Head, followed by light, vaiiable winds and fine weather to arrival. The Beautiful Star left Dnaeflinatl,o,p.m. yesterday cargo' 'and passengers for Oamaru. _ The Herald left Eunedin last night for West Coast ports via Oamaro. The 'barque Mabel is nearly clear of her general cargo. THE COLLISION IN RANGITOTO CHANNEL, Auckland, May 29.—The inquiry into the collision between the Awahinua and the Australia is still proceeding. The evidence yesterday was chiefly of a corroborative character. The captain of the Fssex Baid he was under the impression that a sailiug ship in tow would keep the right of way, and that a steamer should keep out of the way, and this is why he did not show a led light when he saw those of the steamer. After the red light was shown by the Australia there was no possibility of avoiding a collision. Eugene M'Carthy, second mate of the barque, deposed that the officeis of the Australia seemed to do their utmost to ayoid a collision. Evidence ib being taken.
Mklboubne, May 29.—-Tarawera, for the Bluff.
