(Received November 11, at 10.5 a.m.) A proportion of the Norfolk's crew have arrived; the remainder are standing by the vessel. 'The fire was discovered early ou Sunday morning, when the Norfolk was 40 miles off the land. It had a strong hold, and all efforts to suppress it were unavailing. It was therefore decided to beach the vessel on the Gippsland coast. She now lies on a sandy bottom, half-gutted. Tho fir© is still smouldering. THE PANAMA CANAL. Tho earnings of tho Panama Canal in the early days of its operation are disappointingly low, but this is to be accounted for chiefly by tho war (w-rites a Saxx Francisco cor-respoiMlexit on. August, 30). In tho first week, of business the canal earned approximately £II,OOO, not including the amount collected for barge service and payments made in advance for ships on their way to the canal. These amounts would bring the total receipts up to almost £30.000. The number of ships passing through tho water way •was 16. The Teason for the light traffic by this new route is the f*ct that in the fli^fc._j»eek^aftei; it wai» opened -veiy Jew;
ahips sailed anywhere. With shipping on IMb coast and on the Atlantic. Bide becoming freer, and with the prospect that many foreign-owned vessels now tied up in American ports will take out United States registry and thus be enabled to sail under a neutral flag, traffic through the canal should soon become livoly, as there are enormous accumulated stocks awaiting transportation. During the first week only one ship carrying the flag of a belligerent passed through the canal. America's forethought in fortifying the waterway despite the willingness of the great nations to guarantee neutrality seems to have been justified. Paper neutralisations apparently are of no binding effect in time of war. THE SAILER. Maybe the war (says the annual supplement of tho ' Sydney Shipping List') will alter things and bring about a revival of the sailing ship into the trade of Aus--1 tralia; but if that does not, well, it is to bo feared that anothor few years will see the last of the state!" " windjammer.'' The steamer years ago eclipsed, them in tho passenger traffic, and soon after made inroads into the conveyance of wool cargoes. Slowly this was wrested from them, and the sailer foil back upon the "golden grain" or coal for her outward freight. Now it is found that the carriage of wheat by them is threatened, and even the coal "traffic is falling to the steamer 0:1 long and short trips alike. Even the New Zealand timber trade has been, and is being, competed for by the steamer. That the war will make any decisive alteration, or tho experiment tried in nmuc-ctiou with one of tho training ships by Yorkshire shippers during '1913 will do so, is hard to foresee: Iv.it i if only out of sentimentality it is pardon- j able to express the hone that the stately, and even to-day very useful in many ways, sailor will continue to hnM her own, SHIPPING TELEGRAM?.
