Theresa Ward, tug (11 p.jn.L 195 tons, Hamilton, for the Bluff. The Victoria is due to-morrow from Auckland and East Coast ports. She Bails on Tuesday on the return trip to Auckland, where she connects with the Eiverina for Sydney. Theresa Ward, Bluff tug. having undergone overhaul, left Port Chalmers last night for her home port. The Invercargill, from Stewart Island, is due at Port Chalmers to-morrow with timber for the Verclala. The Maori came out. of dock at Port Chalmers this morning. She resumes Tunning next month. .Dredge 223 is in dock having propeller repairs effected. The Paloona and the Breeze dock next week. The Star of Scotland went down to Port Chalmers this afternoon to load foreign produce.. She sails on Monday. The Ruahine sailed again tor Plymouth from Wellington this morning after reshipping the cheese that was taken out. The steamer Cape Ortegal, 4.895 tons, has been engaged by G. H. Scales. Ltd., of Wellington, to take the loading berth in New Zealand for Home. This is the first vessel of this season to load for the Scales Company. The Cape Ortegal was at Adelaide last weak discharging lumber from the Pacific Slope. The Maoriland Company's steamer Lauderdale, arrived at Sydney early in the week from Melbourne to complete discharge of her cargo of timber from Greymouth. The vessel is fixed to load coal at- Newcastle for a New Zealand port. The steamer Cape Gorso is due to leave New York at any time now for Auckland via the Panama Canal. The vessel is bringing the usual general cargo, and xv ill afterwards visit other Dominion ports, and then go to Australia.. The journey from New York to Wellington via the Panama Cana! is some 3,000 miles shorter than the old route. In connection with the wreck of the Marloo. which occurred near Sandy Cape on September 27 whilst the vessel was hound from Cairns to Sydney and Melbourne. the Queensland Marine Board, after the inquiry, found that the master (Captain W. E. Provo) did not exercise necessary: care and attention in navigating the vessel along a s-V'-li'-u of the roast where known dangers exist, and for this the board considered he was deserving of censure.
The captain of the steamer Canadian Transport, which has arrived at Brisbane from Ocean Island, reports tin.it a tragic incident happened at Nauru. The captain of a Norwegian steamer dressed himself one morning, putting on his hat and taking his walking stick, and walked over the side of the vessel. He was not seen again.
Compressed air is now doing greater wonders than ever before, particularly in salvage work. The steamer Gothland recently ran on the rocks off Sicily, and the whole of the bottom of the vessel, from the stem to No. 5 bulkhead, was carried away. Wreckers scaled bulkhead No. 2, and arrangements for compressed air in Nos. 1 and 2 holds were su effective that the vessel went ell the way from Sicily to Southampton under her own steam, part of the time at- eight knots, and with no pumps going, the compressors not having stopped work during ths entire run.
Captain Morrison. late of the- Taluno, joined the Taviuni at Amklnnd yesterday, vice Captain Pryde. who comes ashore on transfer. Mr F. Jaunay. late chief officer of the Talune, has been transferred to a. similar position on tho T.avinni, and Mr E. J. M’Lellan has been appointed second officer on the latter vessel.
Mr E. H. Baigen. Ihi rd officer of the Waitemata, will enmo ashore for examination for a first maltha certificate. Ho is being relieved by Mr .1. C. Parker. Mr A. W. Murray, late third officer of the Talune, has become third officer of the Taviuni, Mr F. Edge, of th- latter vessel, coming ashore on transfer.
Advices received in Sydney Inst week state that the cargo corning forward fcv the Burns, Philp liner Monte™, ex the G..M.S. Boon, which sought shelter in the neutral waters of Java, was originally shipped at Colombo, and consists of tea- and Ceylon products. Consignment* arc for Xew Zealand. Sydney, and Melbourne, also small lots for Adelaide and Fremantle. The arrangements for the cargo coming cn by the Moptero were made by Loudon insurance. companies. The first vessel to arrive in Xew Zealand or Australian waters from Xew York via the Panama route will be the Parley, which is loaded at the American port on behalf of the A. and A. line, for which the Xew Zealand and. African Company are the local agents. According to a cable message she was despatched on lbs 9th hast, for Auckland, Wellington, Lyttelton, Dunedin, Hobart, Launceston, and Sydney. The message announcing the Parleys departure alio states that the Keelung •wot despatched fpora Xew York on the 11th rest- lor Fremantle, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane. 'Hie Parley is expected at Wellington about November 19. The exports of cool from Newcastle last week amounted to 77.203 tqns, of which 54,865 were for the Commonwealth and New Zealand ports, and 23J37 for oversea
crease of 4.000 tons on last week’s trade, but a decrease of nearly 20,000 on the exports for the corresponding week of last year. The export of coal for the past jiine 'months shows a total decrease of 145,626 tons, as compared with the corresponding period of 1910. Taking into consideration the effect of the war and the decreased output occasioned by the afternoon shift strike, the total export (interstate and foreign) of 3,642,806 tons must be considered satisfactory. There is no doubt but that, had normal conditions prevailed, a record production jfpijld have resulted. Trade with the East has been particularly good, and although shipping business is at present somewhat quiet and unsettled, stocks of Newcastle coals in foreign ports must be running low, so that an early return to brisk trade must bo looked tor.
