Invereargill, s.s. (5.10 p.m.), 223 tons, Marks, for Invercargill. Extensive improvements are at present being made at Tokomaru Bay. The wharf is being extended another 100 ft. It is expected to make the accommodation sufficient for the berthage of small vessels in lieu of lightering. , , The Union Company's collier Kmi, which was picked up, with her taii shaft broken, by the Kittawa, is on the Wellington patent slip preparatory to having a new spare tail shaft fitted. The fractured tail shaft has been drawn. The break was just inside the end of the outer liner, 'and was a clean snap, without any sign of a flaw. The fracture is 6ft from the outer end of the tail shaft. No damage resulted to the vessel otherwise. The old propeller boss is now being fitted on to the new shaft, which was placed in position on Monday. Cabled advice from Newcastle states that the Carnhill sailed from there on Friday for San Francisco. Some months ago this steamer loaded a cargo of phosphates at Ocean Island for Stettin, Germany, but on the voyage she became disabled and was abandoned in mid-ocean. Subsequently she was picked up by the German cruiser Cormoran and taken to Namatani. From that place the tug Coringa towed the vessel to Sydney, and when she reached that port war was in progress between Britain and Germany. Her lost tail shaft was replaced, and her cargo discharged at Melbourne, after which she proceeded to Newcastle and took in a cargo of coal for San Francisco.
After a thorough search for the Kini, lasting nearly six days, the Union Company’s tug Tnrawhiti returned to Wellington on Friday evening. The vessel sailed from Wellington late on Saturday night, and was followed next morning by the Kittawa, which steamer was successful in picking up the disabled steamer and towing her into port. This, of course, was unknown to Captain Watchlin, of the Terawhiti, and lie made every effort to make his mission successful. The Kowhai urns spoken on Sunday night, and the Warrimoo on Wednesday. On Friday morning the tug signalled Cape Palliser. and received the news that the Kini was safe in port. The Terawhiti thereupon returned to Wellington. Throughout the search heavy weather was experienced.
The Paloona, which is due here from Melbourne, Hobart, and Bluff on Wednesday, will lay up for overhaul, her running being taken by the Warrimoo. which will sail for Lyttelton, Wellington, Hobart, and Melbourne. Taviuni, s.s., sails on Friday for the West Coast via ports. Mokoia, s.s., which was to have been withdrawn for overhaul, will continue in the Auckland-Dunedin service, leaving here on Tuesday, October 27. She is duo here on Sunday. Waitemata, s.s., leaves Timaru to-mor-row for Auckland. Corinna, s.s., is due here from Onohunga. New Plymouth, and Wellington on Saturday.
The barque Ashmore is proceeding from Timaru to Kaipara to load a cargo of timber for the United Kingdom. This was originally to have been taken by the Anglo-Norman, which was recently wrecked at Kaipara. Under charter to the Union Company the cargo steamer Strathdec arrived off Wellington Heads on Friday afternoon from San Fancisco, and was anchored in the stream at 5.50 p.m. Captain Norris reported that the vessel loaded general cargo at San Francisco only for discharge at Wellington ami Sydney. The run from the Californian port occupied 27 days, and was favored by fine weather generally. The manager of a Wellington coastal shipping company informed a reporter recently that there was quite a boom in the ’shipment of general cargo out of Wellington for coastal ports. Lately his boats had to shut out cargo in some instances.
Having completed discharge of her cargo of hardwood from Bnnbury, the steamer Arrino sailed from Wellington on Friday afternoon for Townsville, Australia, to commence Homeward loading.

The successful tender, it is understood, was close on £7.000, and none of the lenders were far out. Messrs Miller Bros, shipwrights and boatbuilders, Port Chalmers, wore the successful tenderers. ANTICIPATED CHANGE. Rumors are current on the West Coast that the Union Company intend to withdraw either the Maponrika or the Arahura from the West Coast run. and considerable concern is expressed at the fear of losing the Arahura, which, it is declared, would be disastrous to the passenger trade. The Wellington manager of the Union Company, when interviewed on this subject, said : “ Nothing definite has been decided yet, but it all depends on the cargo and passenger traffic, which has fallen away very considerably of late.” . • The local office of the Union Company states that trade on the run in question has fallen off considerably, but nothing is tQ be done in the meantime*
■ IN ANGRY MOOD. SCHOONER IN TROUBLE. [Special to the Stab.] BLUFF, October 20. The schooner Rosetta, which arrived off the Bluff- from Port Pegasus yesterday afternoon, had an exciting time near the Dolphin during a heavy blow. She missed stays and almost ran on the rocks. Captain Bailey dropped both the anchors instantly, and the Rosetta hung on in good stylo with her stern swinging over the rocks, but not touching. The Harbor Board launch came out to her assistance, but her engine - broke down, and she, too, had to to heave out her anchor and hang on. Eventually the launch Venus came out and rescued both craft.
