STEAMER SERVICE WITH AUSTRALIA

NK\Y ARRANOI:MIiNT*. IMPORTANT 10 DUNF.DIN. The I'uiou Steal:: .Ship Company and Hudrlart, Parkrr, and Co have rearranged llw iutercolocial servicer The following letter from the ra:i..a"emcut of the Union Company to thb Duixdin Cliambcr of Commerce explain? the position: |l«sir sir.— Refi rr'niL' 10 your letter of 6th instant, wc wc.ro pleased to have the opportum'tv of a full di-eussior, with your eoinmittse" iu re-.'aru lo ihe intercolonial service, and as the Hcnenil position was clo<elv'"one into, between us, it is unnecessary to" deal with the details in this cou-

lieciion. , Speakin"- also on belialt ot Messrs Hurtdart, Parker. Lid., I may say careful consideration was given to tho slronsr representations made by your deputation, and I have pleasure in advising you that, arraie'enienls are now completed which will tho following alternate service: Paloomi. leave Melbourne, on 22nd instant for Hobart. Bluff, Duucriin, Lyttelton, Wellington. Hobart, Melbourne, and

each three weeks thereafter. Wimmera. leave Melbourne on 31st October for Hobart. Wellington, Lyttehon, nuiiedin, Bluff. Hobart. Melbourne, and each three weeks thereafter. The above arrangement furnishes a 10-da-y service, between Melbourne. Hobart', and the main ports in the South Island, also Wellington. . Iu addition to (he time-table referred 1.0 above, a, weeklv service will be maintained between Svduev, Wellington, and Lvttcllon, and "althomih time will not permit, these steamers to extend their voyage to "Dunedin. 1 have pleasure in advising that, with a view to making the service as valuable as iwssible to southern shippers and importers, we have decided to absord the extra, chnrtre of 3s 6d per ton at present, made on Van;o which has to be transhipped. As explained to the deputation, tho charge in question is an out-01-poeket expense, in addition to which wo are also called on to bear the extra cost of handling the cargo in two bottoms. We greatly regret the necessity which compelled us'to cut down ihe ordinary service, to meet the at present depressed condition of the shipping husiness. and as the extension of the improved service is naturally contingent on the support rcccired, we -iiK'fi-olv trust that, the results will be such as to justify its continuance.
