THE PENGUIN'S MISHAP.
• WELLINGTON, October 26. The Penguin arrived at 9.30 p.m. in tow of the Takapiina. The mishap occurred to part of the high-pressure cylinder, but she was coming along under easy steam when picked np by the Takapuna.
, October 27. The damage to the Penguin's machinery is more serious than was at first thought, and repairs cannot be effected before Saturday night at the earliest. It appears that the bolts of the junk ring worked out, smashing the junk ring, the piston body, and the ring packing. . ■
