The F.c Wairarapi Bteamed up from the Harbor at 9 a.m. to-day, aad landed cargo at the tongue wharf, The ship Waimate is expected to be ready for sea by the end of the week.

A dry dock of enormous proportions is at present being made in the Old Country for Zarate, near Buenos Ayres. It is designed for the purpose of dry-docking and floating vessels of 5,000 tons, and is to be constructed in such a way that it may afterwards be readily adapted, if necessary, to accommodate craft of twice that weight. With the first shift of wind to the S.W. we may lcok for the arrival of the baiquentine Javper, which cleared from St. Louis for Dunedin on July 1, with 314 (French) tonß of sugar. She should be closely followed by the ship Nelson, now eighty-four days out from London; whilat the Biier Holme is ninety-one days out from Liverpool, and the Danish birque Nanny ninety-four eliys out from New York. Tho Elderslie left the Bowen pier this afternoon for london with tho following cargo:— 621 bales wjol, 51 do flax, 34 do sluepskioH, 278 do rabbitskins, 74 do basils and leather, 31 casks ptltp, 939 cases meats, 20 do cheese, 44 sacks peaH, 14 packages sundries, 25,917 carcisses (rcz:n mutton, 18t cases kidneys, 54 hares, and 6 packages game. The schooner Lizz e Ellen, with 20,0C0ft timber from Fort rose, anived this forenoon and anchored in Carey Bay. She left Foitroso on the 9.h lnht. with a l'ght N.E. breeze, which increased same evening to a ttrong gale, which held until tho afternoon of tho 12th, when tt mcdjrt.tjd and veered round to tho westward; cairicd light westerly winds until oft' St.d lie Hill on tho morning of tho 18th, when it agiln shifted to tho northward, blowing fresh from that quarter to arrival. It is evident from the returns of the RegistrarGeneral of Shipping and Seamen for the mouth of May that the tendency towards steam navigation is on the incroaso. Both in the United Kingdom and in the colonies there is a loss of sailing tonnage and a decided determination of steam tonnage into large vessels. The old slowsiiling craft of former days has given place to the swift liner, and this again in m >ny instances to the magnificent argosies, which, propelled by engines of thousands of horse-power, carry tho commerce of the British Empire to every quarter of tho globe. Again, so marked is the change from sail to steam that the loss in tonnag« of the former in one month alono amounted to nearly 15,000 tons. Toe fact is, that the carrying Cip -.city of steamers is now on a much n.ore extensive ica'e than f rmeriy. Freight in every ins'anc>, 'as well by sea a< by hind, is mere remunerative ti an the carriage of there Is lesi uncertaint;, and a huge b earner 1 ka tho ArcadH, or one of the Orient line, filled with goods to i'.a utmost capacity, in a mino of wealth to tho owners According tj the leparfc of tho RogUtrarGenera'. after making up for ha'f-losscs to tho Bteam fleet b? misadventure, sa'e, removal?, etc., the addition to steam vessels in tids country, without c unting the cdoiiies, is at tho astonishing rato cf about 14,0C0 tons yearly. —English paper.

After leaving Wellington the ves?el proceeded down the Fast Coast of the Middle Island, making her u>ual lighthouo and port cills here and there as far as the Bluff. From thero she went away south to the Autipodes, Auckland, Bountiep, and Campbell Islands, where, on each, the depflts erected for the convenience of shipwrecked manners wero carefully examined and found to be intact, not having been interfere! with by anyone.
