On account of the main pump crosshead carrying away, the Union Company’s chartered steamer Canada Cape took nine and a-half days on the trip from Newcastle to Wellington, which, under ordinary circumstances, should have taken five slays. The vessel arrived at Wellington on Smiflar morning. She left the New South Wales coal port at 6 p.tn. on Otoher 28. and experienced rough weather for the first two days out. It wan on Sunday, November 1. that the accident occurred. The engines were immediately stopped, and Hr t*. Gales, chief engineer, and his staff lost no time in endeavoring to effect repairs. By 2 p.m. the same day these were completed, and the Canada Cape was enabled to continue her journey at the rate of five knots per hour. The harbor master at Hokianga reports that on Saturday he sounded the bar channels. The north channel flagstaff bearing east magnetic showed 14ft at tow water; east by north, lift; south channel, flagstaff bearing north-east, 16ft at low water. The bank inside is nowclear on this bearing, but there is Bft of water on it on the north-east by north bearing. The channels are materially altering, and further sounding will be taken. Mariners -should navigate with caution, and the tide should be at least half-flood before the bar is negotiated.
Wind and wave Lave of late played sad havoc with the unfortunate steamer Devon, which wa.s stranded within a stone’s-throw of the level light at Pencarrow nearly 18 mouths ago (stales the ‘Post’). Of tho afterpan of the vessel not a vestige remains, her hull bavins: snapped in half imrmdhtelv behind the funnel. Her deckhouses amidships, stripped of all fittings and metal, remain, as also does the small deckhouse near her bow. The forward mast is still standing, and sum- of her ventilator shafts have withstood the ravages of the salvagers and the waves. Tho battered wreck is a great source of in- • terest to passengers on steamers plying to and from the port of Wellington.* The death is announced (says the 4 Lyttelton Times’) of Captain .). A. Wallace, aged 39 years, who for the past four years has been in the employ of tho Lyttelton Harbor Board. Prior to join- • ing the harbor board’s service he was an officer in the service of the Union Steam Shin Company. Some time back Captain Wallace was eomnelled through fail- ' ing health to relinquish the post of mate of the tug Lyttelton. He leaves a widow and family. THE FERRY SERVICE.
