Captain Lorenzen, which left Puget Sound on July 18 for Pago Pago, struck a reef off Tuku, north of the Tongan group, on September 29. The captain and five men set out in an open boot and reached Mang>, Fiji, after five days’ severe buffeting, quite exhausted The vessel was breaking up when tho partyleft. The mate and 16 men were left on Tukji. which ; s an uninhabited island. The advent of the fine steamers Rotorua, Ruahine. and Remrera into the New Zealand Shipping Company’s LonclonWellington service made passengers somewhat fastidious, so the older steamers Ruapehu, Tongariro, Rimutaka, and Turakina had to makr way for them, and were only kept occupied just when and where occasion require I Now, however, this is likely to be altered, for tho four of them have had the passenger accommodation remodelled and brought up to date, and, besides, will in future only carry two classes of passengers—first and third. The _ improvaments comprise enlarged smoking and music rooms, a lengthier promenade deck, and more comfortable fittings generally. THE FERRY SERVICE.

The magisterial inquiry into the circumstances of the loss of the Kairaki off Greyraouth on September 26 was continued at Lyttelton this morning before Mr J. S, Evans, S.M., and Captain Black and Mr Hamilton (assessors). Alexander W. Bethune, inspector of machinery and surveyor of ships, stated that ho remembered the damage done to her in April at the Kaiapoi bar. He made an internal survey on May 4 at Lyttelton, and saw the engines running. There was a length of tne intermediate shaft bent. She showed signs of straining in the engine room. On May 6 she went into dock. On May 4 he considered her unaeaworthy. On May 5 he made a detailed examination, and found that about 400 rivets had to be replaced outside and about 100 inside in the vicinity of the engine room. Other repairs were also carried out, including the fitting of several angle, irons. To the Chairman: The bed plate of the engines was not knocked about, but had to be rolined. He had not heard that the boilers moved two inches since she was fired up. If the vessel was lilting about two feet on the bar she would bump severely, and would ho apt to do damage to herself and start something. He considered the hatches sufficiently strong to stand rough weather. Ho thought the beams fitted into the socket, and. were not securely fixed. It was not usual to secure them. He remembered that the gooseneck of the derrick slipped into the socket, bus he was not aware that it was fastened by a pin. If it was not secured the sea breaking over would move the derricks. Alter reviewing the diver's report witness said that the port side of the bridge of (ha ship was store in, and in his opinion it appeared as if tho damage was done by the sea before she went down. The new blades fitted to the propeller at Lyttelton were of steel, and should have been able to stand all the sea. She was classed A 1 a: Lloyd’s, and should have been a good sea boat, but no vessel, in his opinion, was altogether safe in broken water, which at Grey mouth was about 10 miles out. On the day of the- incident the Kairaki was a,bout two and a-quarter miles inside. Other witnesses were examined, and the inquiry was then adjourned. SHIPPING TELEGRAMS. WELLINGTON.
