The ship was oIT t!ie coast of Senegambia. when a shock v. as felt, and there was .some difficulty in navigation. There was n.i ro. k in the course, and icebergs <]o not thrive in those regions. The mystery wj solved when it was discovered that a v hide had uonc too near the propeller. Jlis head had got caught by the blades, and was jammed between two of them and the stern-post, so that the propeller eoidd not be moved one way or the either. An endeavor was made to secure the i;:nnite:\ and a wire was about to bo passed round him when he managed to get clear and slipped away into the sea. Tie is said to have been from 30ft to 40!'t lo.mr and 15ft to 18ft in circumference.

The story of luuv a f;t.-.t Herman fourmasted barque endeavored to outdistance a British warship is told in ' Lake's Falmouth Packet.' It >.iys :—" The r;iiitu)-c of the Ponape wan a most exciting affair. She had come from Iquiiiue in CO days. On Saturday a Rrit'sh warship saw h"r with every stit-ch »i canvas set. and Cowling along at a grand rate. Signals were hoisted on thn battleship, but 'Captain Hamm, of the Herman, did not respond, ,and it was evident that lie was not going to be captured without making a bold bid to escape. Hw ship was travelling faster than some steamers, and it so happened that the battleship which was bent on capturing the Ponape. had been laid up in Devonport for some time, and had not done much hard steaming of late. A couple of blank shots wero fired with tho object of inducing the Ponape to surrender, but she kept on, and at one time looked as if she was beating the batt'eshin in the race. However the warship's stokers and engineering staff pot to work, and it was evident that steam was to triumph over sail. Tt is stated that the captain of the man-o'-war ordered a live shell to bo fired at the Cerrnan, and it was only when this order was actually carried out. and the signal war made ' Stop, or we'll sink you,' that tho Ponape came round and surrendered. Tho Ponape was subsequently taken into Falmouth." THE FERRY SERVICE. The Wahine, from Wellington, arrived at Lyttelton at 6.50 this morning, and connected with the first express for the south.
