THE DIRECT STEAMERS. , Referring to the paragraph from our London corre • pond ent’s let ter the * Press’ is informed by the Now Zealand Shipping Company that the | Rimutaka left Wellington on May 16, and arrived at Plymouth on June 27, being forty-two days on the passage. The Coptic left Lyttelton : on May 17, and arrived at Plymouth on June 30, making the passage in forty-four days. Captain Greenstreet, of the Rimutaka, reports that i he had to contend with adverse winds the whole way, and that the steamer was delayed in eending provisions to the French brig Delpbine, of Nantes, in response to a signal—- “ Want of food, starving. ” After leaving Ply- : mouth tho high pressure piston sustained some damage, and the Rimutaka proceeded under , low-pressure cylinder to Gravesend. From the feregoing it will be seen that the Rimutaka made tho passage Home in two days less than tho Coptic. THE BIG DREDGE.
