1 The Norddeutscher-Lloyd and the Hmbc burg-American Companies appear to he treating tho war as if it were merely a trade depression. They remark that all i German shipping has to fear is “a reduction of dividends during the war, and after the Avar German ships laden with cargo ■will again appear in all the sea*, and prove to tho disappointed Albion that the German flag cannot be swept off the face of the waters.” The English shipping paper ‘ Fairplay ’ wonders how long it will take to wipe off the losses that are piling up against the German companies at the present time. Although only about 20 per cent, of the German mercantile marine has been seized, and of that a large proportion will b© returned after the war, the conditions will be so changed that it will be impossible for these vessels to secure profitable employment for some time. . The Transylvania. 14,500 tons, which bad a narrow escape from destruction on her last trip across the Atlantic, only readied the Mersey a few weeks ago from the builders, Scott's Engineering and Shipbuilding Company, of Greenock. She is the latest Cnnarder, and in her engine department embodies the most roeeiit development geared turbines. Hitherto these have been used only _on smaller vessels. The verdict of technical observers on the Transylvania during her mu from the Clyde ‘to Liverpool was wholly favorable. Not only do geared turbines need less engine room space, but thev work without noise or vibration. It is declared that all ships of importance imisl now be engined on this principle. The Transylvania is designed in all respects ns a'high-class passenger ship. She has accommodation for about 300 first class passengers, 200 second, and nearly 2.000 third. Her speed will be 15i knots. OVERSEA STEAMERS. AUCKLAND. December 20.—6.5 p.m.. Whatakane, front Liverpool via Durban. LYTTELTON,' December 20.—4 p.m., Lord Erne, from New York via the Panama ('anal.
