Advices from Simla, dated September 8, state that tenders have been invited for the steamers Rheinfels and Wartrum, at Bombay, and that tenders were to be at mce invited for tho remaining vessels — laraelr, the steamer Alesia, at Rangoon, ■uid the steamers Wartenfels, Lindenfels, Franz Ferdinand, and Varzin, at Aden. '.)t the steamers detained at Colombo, the Moltkefels, Sturmturm, and IRappenfels are to go to Calcutta. The Italian ship Combermere, which has had a lengthy stay in New Zealand waters '.eft Lyttelton last week for Puget Sound, -vhere she will load timber. Like other 'oreign ships that visit these shores (says the 'Lyttelton Times'), the Combermere lost many of her sailors, with the result that, a "scratch" crew had to be requisitioned. It is understood that wages varying from £8 to £lO per month had to be paid to the men who filled tho vacancies brought about by desertion. The arrival of the steamer Cassis. at Sydney was one of the most important events in shipping circles of tho year, iniwmuch as she is tho first vessel that has arrived at Australia via the Panama Canal route (says tho Sydney 'Shipping List'). Unfortunately the war, just as with so many other things, deadened the interest in the vessel's arrival, but to those whoso business brings them into daily contact ivith shipping it awakens ideas on the ;natter of trade possibilities. . . Had
there been no war on wo feel sure the arrival of tho Cassis from New Orleans would have been- made memorable, but all were too affected with the affairs of the Empire to pay any special attention to the event, notable as it should be. Wellington was the first port in Australasia for the vessel to call at.
A large number of officer's iu tho steamers in.the New Zealand trade have recently been appointed to the Royal Navy Reserve, and are serving in various capacities afloat. Sub-lieutenant H. G.
