The vessel will reappear in New Zealand with another cargo of case oil for various ports early this month. The Physa will probably make Auckland her first port of call in the Dominion. The steamer Mako, built at Home for Richardson and Co., Napier, called at Cape Town last month, and she should be reported shortly at Edithburg, where she will lift a cargo oF salt for Napier. The_ steamer Trafalgar, which is to load in New Zealand for Home early next year on behalf of the Shaw, Savill. and Albion Company, is to leave New York shortly under "the auspices of the A. and A. Line. Sho is commanded by Captain Peter, a son of one of Sydney's best known waterfront identities. The London shipp'inc journal ' Fairplay,* reports that the Shaw. Savill, and Albion Company have just contracted with Messrs Workman, Clarke, and Co., Belfast, and Messrs Alexander Stephen .and Sons, Linthouse, for the construction by each firm of a large high-class passenger and cargo steamer for the Australian trade. The Shaw, Savill, and Albion Company's Waiwera. from London via ports, is due at Wellington on December 14. and on December 16 she is due to sail for Bluff and Dunedin. The Waiwera will afterwards call at Wellington, Picton, Waitara, Napier, Auckland, and Whangarei for Homeward loading.

M'Lean transferred from the Mokoia to .the Paloona yesterday, and the following officers signed on the vessel:—Mr Middlctnn chief, Mr A H. Prosser Hate ..f the Mokoia) second, and Mr K. D.
