ARRIVAL OF THE MATAURA.
The barque Mataura, 853 tons, from London direct, arrived at Oamani yesterday morning, and was brought in by the Progress and berthed at the Sumpter wharf. She left London on June 22 at 8 p.m., experienced light variable winds and calms down the Channel, continuing up to latitude 41deg N. The N.E. trade wind was picked up in latitude 27deg N, longitude 21deg "W., and moderate and fair weather was experienced to latitude lOdeg N., and longitude 25deg W.. when the trade wind was lost. Very light winds and calms were the order of the day until the Line was crossed in longitude 27deg W. Light retarding breezes and calms were experienced until latitude 34deg S. was reached. On the 16th August vivid lightning and a fallii g glass betokened a change in the weather, and a heavy gale from the north struck the barque, the high sea continually breaking over her and washing away all the movable articles from the dock. On the abatement of the gale light westerly winds, changing to head S S.E, winds, were experienced. On August 21 Tristan d’Acunha ivas sighted, and from thence onwards the barque, with favorable winds, made an average run of 210 miles per day until within 200 miles of the Snares. The meridian of the Snares was passed at midnight on Monday last. On Tuesday the Nuggets Point was sighted, and the barque reported but received no answer. She also reported at Cape Saunders on Tuesday, at 7. a.m., and at Otago Heads. Calm weather and light breezes have been generally experienced, which accounts for the somewhat lengthy passage made. The barque is in very good order, and, after dischareing her Oanwru cargo, will proceed to the Bluff and discharge the remainder. The Hit of officers is as follows Captain, Mr J. B, Martin; first mate, Mr J, G. Roberts ; second mate, Mr J. W. Watkins; third mate, Mr T. B. Gordon; stewaid, Mr J. Horne.—* Oamaru Mail. Shipping? Telegrams.
