ARRIVAL OF THE MARGARET GALBRAITH.
Owing to the strong P.W. wind which prevailed on Saturday it was not deemed prudent for the tug Flacky to attempt to tow into port against the ebb tide the ship Margaret Galbraith, and she anchored under the North Head until yesterday morning, when she was brought across the bar under the charge of Pilot M'Donald, her draft being 17ft bin. On coming up the cross chant el, she was met by the Customs boat, and all being well was passed and cleared in, and came to anchor in the Quarantine Ground at 9 30 a ra., in readiness for towing to Dunedin. The Margaret Galbrair.h comes into part in excellent order, and is still under the command of Captain M. Carden, who brings with him as chief officer Mr M'Donald, Mr Leslie being second, and Mr Saunders third, Her passage, which has been rather a stormy one, has occupied 105 days from port to port, but we are glad to state no casualties have occurred, Her cargo consists of some 1,400 tons, a large portion of which is transhipments ; also ten passengers, all of whom have enjoyed excellent health. Captain Carden, with his nsual courtesy, supplied us with the following report of the passage: —Left Glasgow on June 7, and anchored at tho Tail of the Bank at noon. Afterembarking passengers left again at noon on the Bth, towed to Ailsa Craig, and east off the tug at daylight on the 9th, and made sail to a light N.W, breeze, which held down the Irish Channel, and landed the pilot off Waterford at 8 am. on the 11th. Light N. and K.W, winds continued until the 15tb, when the wind fell almost to a calm, and was succeeded by light southerly to westerly winds until the 17th, when the wind veered to the S.K., with heavy weather for twenty-four hours, when it veered to the northward until passing the latitude of Madeira on June 23, when the wind freshened for three days, again foil calm, and light variable winds prevailed until the 28th, when the first of the N.B. trade was taken in latitude 26deg 35min N. The trade proved very light, and gave out in latitude 14deg N., and was succeeded by light northerly winds and squally weather, and on July 10 spoke the ship Zealand!* in latitude 6deg 40min N., longitude 26deg 30min W., twenty-six days out, all well, on which day she took a southerly breeze and sighted St. Paul Kook at 4 am. on tho 13th, crossing the Equator at 11 a.m. same day on the thirty-fifth day out, The S.B. trade was fresh, but hung well to tho southward, owing to which not much progress was made, the ship having to bo kept up clo=e to the wind ; passed the meridian of Greenwich on August 7 in latitude 37min S. After losing the 8.8. trade had a succession of light northerly winds, and the Capo of Good Hope on August 15, in latitude 41 S., on the sixty-eighth day out. Still_ keeping light winds, she ran down her easting on the mean parallel of latitude 42deg S., until passing Kerguelen Land, when she had a succession of southerly and S.S.IV. winds until pasting the meridian of Cape Leeuwin on September 7, in latitude 42deg S , when she encountered strong S, and S.S.W, winds with heavy beam sea, daring which she shipped large quantities of water; passed the meridian of Hobart in latitude 4Gdeg S. on September 15. Still keeping similar weather, she passed the Snares on the morning of the 20th inst. with a heavy S.S.W. wind, accompanied by frequent hail squalls and veiy high sea; thence she had strong S.S.W. and B.W. winds along the coast, and arrived off the Heads as above. Neither ice nor wreckage was seen across the Southern Ocean.
A NEW STEAMER.
The New Zealand Shipping Company are in receipt of advice by cable, from their London office, that the Duke of Westminster will be the pioneer of their new line of cargo steamers, and that they will be informed of the others later on when arrangements are completed. The Duke of Westminster ia a fine four-masted steel steamer of 3,726 tons, 450 horse-power, built in 1882, and belongs to the well-known Eastern Steam Ship Company. Her dimensions arelength, 400 ft; breadth, 40ft3in; depth, 28ft7in. We understand that the carrying capacity of the additional cargo boats about to be put on by the
owners of the direct steamers trading to New Zealand will be equal to.about 750,000 sheep per annum,—‘Press.’
