' _ ' Messrs Fleming and Ferguson, shipbuilders, of Paisley, are constructing a paddlo tug steamer for the Timaru Harbor Board. Her machinery will consist of two sets of disconnecting compound diagonal surface condensing engines, of 600 horse-power. THE CAIRNTOUL. The latest addition to the Union Company’s fleet is the Cairntonl, which arrived to-day from Calcutta via Wellington and Lyttelton. She was built in the early part of this year by Messrs Palmer, of the Tyne, and is classed 100A1 at Lloyd’s. Her dimensions are: Height 261 ft, breadth 37ft, depth of hold 16ft gin. Her tonnage is 1,688, and net I|o7l tons;
and she Trill carry 3.630 tons cf deadweight, inclusive of bunker coal, on a draught of 18ft of water. She is fitted with two holds, worked from four cargo hatches, each with a patent steam winch. She has triple expansion engines of 155 horse • power nominal, and is fitted with steam steering gear. Her speed when deeply laden is nine knots, and with a light draught ten knots, on a consumption of twelve tons of coal per diem. She is divided into compartments by fom iron and one wooden bulkhead. Her saloon is small, l.nt very neat, and in addition to the necessary quarters for her officers she has berths for two passengers. Taken in all, the Cairntuul is an extremely serviceable boat, and quite suitable for the trade in which she is to be engaged. We understand it is the intention of the company to change the name of this steamer. She will be in future known as the Taieri.
The Cairntoul is commanded by Captain T. D. Dunlop, who was formerly here ns an officer in the Albion Shipping Company’s ships Dunedin and Canterbury; the chief officer is Mr 3. A. Reay; the second, Mr W, H. Heard ; the third, Mr D. Hendti; Mr H. 0. Seigel (late of the 8.8. Pukaki) fills the position of purser; the engines are in charge of Mr Oalrymple, Mr J, F. Scott being second, and Mr M’Gregor third engineer. The Oairntoul b.ings a quantity of Indian produce for this port, consisting of tea, castor oil, gunny bags, and rope, in addition to a large quantity which she has discharged at Wellington and Lyttelton.
