Advice has been received from Sydney by the Union Company stating that there "is still a Largo quantity of cargo r.hero ex tho N.D.L. steamers Thurinsten, which left Bremen on July 8, and the Griefswald, which left the same port on June 17. Wool has now started to pour into the Wellington Harbor Board's sheds, nver ICO railway trucks having been brought in on one day last week. This teason's clip is coming in earlier than nsual, and will apparently be bigger than tho average. The Harbor Board has already been approached for extra •wool accommodation for tho November and December sales. An interesting contract has been made bv the St. Vincent Water Company with Messrs M'Kio (and Baxter, engineers, Glasgow, for the construction of a "water steamer to carrv fresh water from Tarrafal to St. Vincent, Cape Verdo Islands. The hull has been sublet to Messrs George Brown and Co., Greenock. The vessel is 95ft by 23ft 6in by 10ft, and is to carry 250 tons of fresh water in three tanks, constructed similarly to oil tanks in oil tank steamers. She has been designed by Mr David Donaldson, consulting engineer !»*u3 naval architect, of London, and is to be built on the Isherwood system of longitudinal construction as in the cases of practically all modern tankers. A rudder indicator is now made which indicates the position of a rudder at night without tho use of any light in the wheelhonse. The device is made entirely of bronze, and is attached to the steering wheel. An arrow travelling over a dial indicates the exact position of the mdder, swinging as it does with the rudder, so that the position of the rudder may be seen instantly in daylight. At night the scale Tcmains dark if the rudder is amidshiD. If the mdder is to port a red light illumines a translucent shield, thus notifying the helmsman immediately of the general position of the rudder, while the arrow gives the exact angular deflection. If the mdder is to starboard the shield glows green. In no instance is any bright light shown to interfere with or ob-s-ure the wheelman's vision, which is tho case wherevor a light is turned on in the wheelhouse. ! The Westralia is due to-morrow from Auckland via ports, and sails on Friday on the return trip. The Karori arrived this morning fTom Oaraam. She sails to-morrow for the West Coast.

She sails on Friday for Melbourne via Cook StTait. Tho Wanaka, which left Bluff on Saturday for Wellington, had aboard a cargo of 3.400 crates of cheese. These, on arrival, 'will bo transhipped to the Rotorua for London. On completion of her present extensive overhaul and survey at Port Chalmers, the Maori will leave for Lyttelton about December 9. Her first trip in the ferry service will be made from Wellington on December 12, and this service ■will fcfl then maintained by the Maori and the Wahino. It is understood that the Monowai, which ha 3 been relieving, ■will replace the Tarawera in the East Coast service, and the latter vessel will be withdrawn. THE FERRY SERVICE.
