(By Fleotbio Telegraph.—Copyright,] [Per Press Association.)

A VERY HARD TIME. MELBOURNE, July 8. (Received July 8,1889, at 2.15 p.m.).

The ship Wray Castle, from Liverpool, arrived yesterday, leaking. Her pumps had been at work continuously fer the last forty-five days. The defect was due to faulty construction, many of the rivets in her bottom having worked themselves loose.


The P. and O. Company’s Valetta has arrived. Her only passenger for New Zealand is Mr M’Millan.


Eastern news, per the British India Company’s steamer, reports a disastrous inundation in northern Hwang Lung, a province of China. Six thousand people were drowned and ten thousand rendered homelees and destitute. The outlook in British North Borneo is dark owing to the want of proper Government supervision. Pirates surprised the French fort at Chobo, in Tonquin, and tortured the commandant and a corporal who fell into their hands alive. The former’s two children were killed before his eyes, and he was then slashed to pieces.
