The barque Nanny, from New York for this port, was spoken on May 27 in latitude 87deg N., longitude 52deg W. A resident of Haabai, writing upon the subject of the height reached by tidal waves on the island of Fua during the gales of 7th and Bth March, says:—“Accurate scientific measurement by three gentlemen demonstrate that they reached the extraordinary height of 86ft above high-water mark. The waves could not have been caused by the gale simply, which was merely a heavy blow from the S.E., but mast have been created by earthquake or other upheaval some distance from the group. The waves inland during the galo of IBth March, when all the ships of war at anchor in the hstbor of Apia (Samoa) were wrecked, are reported as reaching, on the island of Savaii (where the greatest damage on shore was done), to 13ft above high-water mark only.” MOVEMENTS OF THE UNION STEAM SHIP COMPANY'S FLEET.
