No further advice ha-s yet been received as to when the Maheno. laid up in Sydney, i 3 likely to resume Tunning. At Friday's meeting of the Auckland Chamber'of Commerce the chairman (Air hj. Kent) said there had been no movement on the part of the firemen to go on the steamer. The vessel, he understood, was 'very easy for firemen to work. Trade lad fallen off considerably, ami the vessel conld not be run for philanthropic purposes. They could only liopo for better times to come. A largo number of sailings from NewYork under the auspices of the- A. and A.

News was received in Auckland on Friday stating that tho _ schooner Gem •was aground at the Noisies, a group of small islands between Motutapa and Coromandel. The schooner was riding at anchor -when a squall of considerable violence * struck her and drove her on to a rocky part of the shore. The captain and, crew of three had no difficulty in getting ashore. It, was believed that the vessel would prove a total loss. Tlie Gem, is a small vessel of 20 gross tons, and was built in 1874. She has been engaged for some time past carrying shingle between coastal ports, nnd when she • was driven ashore she was loaded ■with, 60 tons of shingle for Messrs J. J. Craig, Ltd., Auckland. Throughout tho whole r>f the voyage of the New Zealand Shipping Company's K.M.'S. Tnrnkina, which arrived at Wellington from London on Monday night, favorable weather was experienced, but tho pleasantness of tho Journey" wa-s unfortunately marred bv the ", death of five persons on board, Heavy weatjier during the latter part of tho voyage caused the vessel's arrival to be somewhat later than was expected. Departure from the Home port was taken on too afternoon of October 2, but upon arrival at the mouth of the English ■ Channel she wa3 subjected to an ex[amination by a French gunboat. This , completed, the Turakina continued her •;vovage, proceeding direct to llobart. 'After pratique was granted bv tho Port Health Officer, the liner berthed at the - King's wharf. Captain V. C. White- ' Parsons retains command. Two more vessels have been added to , the already lengthy list of steamers and ■sailing craft at present laid up in Auckland Ilarbor (states a northern paper). ■ These- are the well-known barq.ieaii.ie ..Senorita and the Northern Company's steamer Claymore. The Senorita * ha just completed discharging a cargo of £ixal from Newcastle. It was i.ntictpated vessel would load a cargo of 5: sawn timber at thl3 port for Sydney, j&lrat as there was none offering the Senf orita was towed to an anchorage amongst jithe fleet In Sulphur Bay. The Claymore I-was recently withdrawn from the West sLCoast trade, and has.joined the list of Ijanemployed for the time being. The kcoastal steamer Rotomahana, which has fbbeen undergoing survey and overhaul for Sjeveral weeks, will also in the course of jpßi ; fe"w' ; days .be taken to an anchorage Efa {Wjrbuam'-ibE an indefinite jjeriwL

Other vessels laid up include the Union Company's steamers Moura, Talune, and Hourato, the tugs Stella and Lyttelton, and the ketch Lizzis Taylor. THE FERRY SERVICE. The Wahine, from Wellington, arrived at Lyttelton at 7.25 this morning, and connected with tho first express for the south. THE WARRIMOO'S MISHAP. [Special to the Stab.} BLUFF, November 19. A good deal of excitement was caused at the Bluff yesterday afternoon as the result of a mishap to the s.s. Warrimoo when attempting to leave the Bluff for Dunedin in the teeth of one of the heaviest gales that have visited Foveaux waters for months. When swinging out at the wharf the connecting hawser snapped like a gunshot, _ and left the Warrimoo exposed broadside on U> the full force of the gale. Captain M'Beth tried to manoeuvre his engines to clear the Hinemoa, which, occupied tho adjoining berth, but by so doing the gale carried him too far "out, and he passed over the Middle Bank, anchoring in the north channel. In trying to turn to sea Captain M'Beth hove* anchor, but before ho could complete his turn he ran aground on tho north bank, with the u r ale and the waves driving the vessel further and moro firmly in. The tug went to her assistance, and got a severe dustincr with the waves and spray flying over her. For nearly an hour she tried to tow the Warrimoo off, but had to give it up and return to the wharf. At times the spay and Tain completely obscured both the 'tug and the Warrimoo from tho spectators on the wharf. Although hard and fast, and likely to remain so for a day or two. the Warrimoo is in no danger, and is making no water. She had a heavy list when sho left the whurf. and this "was, of course, accentuated by the falling tide. It was too rough to take off the passengers, and the list, will probably cau.se them some inconvenience. It was on the top of the high spring tide when she went aground, and so it will be impossible to move her until the galo moderates. It is possible that if the galo continues much' longer j son:e difficulty may be experienced J through the material falling away of the j tides, e.T.h )ii;rh tide beinjr lower from noiv on. The Warrimoo has a large Australian cargo, including a big line of I JTobnrt fruit and cherries. TOWED OFF. ! BLUFF. November 19. The gale lulled in the early hours of this morning, and the tuc Theresa Ward succeeded in towing off the stranded Warrimoo shortly before 2 a.m. She came off on the top of another very high spring tide.
