A story to the effect that during the naval manoeuvres the New Zealand Shipping Company’s Kaikoura, on her way up the English Channel, was captured by H.M.S. Arethusa, appears to have greatly distressed Captain Orutchley, who writes to ‘The Times’as follows: —“On Monday, the 19th inst., off Ushant, a vessel was sighted at 11.30 a.rn, steering a north - west course. Knowing the naval manoeuvres were in course of proceeding, when the vessel crossed our bow and bore about north from theKaikoura, 1 stai boar Jed my helm and ran down to see what man-of-war it was so disguhed. This vessel, which afterwards proved to bo tho Arethusa, stood to the westward, declining close communication. She afterwards turned to the north-east and hoisted the sign .1 4 You are captured,’ and endeavored apparently to owne alongside. For the space of about half an hour she maintained the same distance from us, and, finally sheering off to the westward, fired a gun. I wish to point out that this so-called capture was not really so. The Kaikoura ran down to the Arethusa, which she -would have done had it been war time, and the Arethusa was unable to come alongside the Kaikoura without a greater expenditure of coal than sho apparently cared for, She did not gain one yard in the chase.” THE DIRECT STEAMERS. The Arawa (Wellington, August 22) arrived at Plymouth on the evening of Saturday, the 28th ult., after a splendid passage of thirtyseven days. Shipping Telegrams Auckland.
