The Chatham Island Fishing Company’s Himitangi, which returned to Lyttelton on Saturday from the Chathams, experienced one of the roughest trips for some considerable time past (says the Christchurch ‘Star’), and the fury of the gale was borne out by an inspection. The Himitangi left Lyttelton at midnight on November 6, and off Godloy Head fairly strong northerly winds were experienced, which veered later to the louth, with high following seas. Waitangl, however, was reached on November 9, and Port Hutt the following day, the weather at this stage being foggy, Owenga, Tobury, and Waitangi being also visited. The homeward journey ■was commenced at 8 p.m. on Tuesday last, the weather being fairly bad, westerly winds and high 'seas the order of the day. At 9 a.m. on Wednesday the gale raged with cyclonic force, and as / little headway could, be made it was huhaequently decided to heave the vessel :.*■ to. • Everything went well until 10 a.m., when a heavy sea crashed on the fore•deck, smashing the ladder and gangway and staving in the window of the whcelfcouse. It was an unpleasant time for those on board. At 4 p.m. the weather moderated a little and at 5 p.m. she again got under way, but only slow progress could be made. On Thursday evening and Friday the weather cleared, and the conditions were more favorable, and Lyttelton was reached at 3 o’clock tho " next morning. ■ ■ * THE FEEET SERVICE.
