The twin-screw* vessel Tongariro (New Zealand Shipping Company) reached Port Chalmers at 3 p.m. on Saturday from London via Hobart with 68 passengers, most of whom are returning to tho Dominion. Leaving London on October 3, the vessel sailed direct to Hobart, omitting Teneriffo and Capo Town, usual ports of call. The voyage _ was practically uneventful. Naval activity -was apparent off Dover, whore the ship came under observation by searchlights, and passed a flotilla of destroyers. Tho only other incident recalling the state of affairs in Europe wa* the falling in with a French warship off Cape Ushant. The ship’s papers were examined by a French officer, and the vessel then proceeded on her voyage. Fine ahd calm weather was experienced right down the African coast and across the Southern Ocean. The deck lights were not used throughout the voyage, in uniformity with the Admiralty’s instructions. Cape Town was passed on October 27, ana an uneventful run, during which no vessels were sighted, brought the vessel to ,Hobart on November 17. On leaving Tasmania heavy seas were experienced for two days, this being tho only rough weather met with during tho voyage. Eight passengers for Australia disembarked at Hobart. Although uneventful, the voyage, from a passenger’s standpoint, was a very pleasant one. Before arriving at Port Chalmers a meeting of passengers was held at which a vote of thanks was enthusiastically passed to 'Captain Cornwall, the officer?, and the ship’s company for the kindness and courtesy shown to all throughout the voyage. The Tongariro will unload 3,170 tons of cargo at Port Chalmers. Particulars of the cargo for other ports are as follow :— Lyttelton, 844 tons; Timaru, 850 tons; Auckland, 1,062 tons; Wellington, 67 tons. In addition the vessel has brought six Clydesdale stallions consigned to a Dunedin firm. They comprise three two-year-old colts and three yearlings.
