Timaru, and the Bluff, and will finally sail for London on February 2. .Proof of the truth of the saying “It’s -. on. ill wind that blows nobody good" - (says-the ‘Argus’) is abundantly provided '" .•by the promptitude with which other na- • ttona have seized the opportunity to -pick German’s lost Australian trade by es- ’ tablishing new lines of merchant steamers to -the Commonwealth. Italians, Dutch, and Danish enterprises of this nature were < launched soon after the war began, and the- pioneer steamers of the Italian and Danish lines are already iu Australian , ports on their opening visits. In tho carriage to Australia of figs, raisins, cur* : runts, and other similar products of the (Mediterranean, German took a -J prominent, if not monopolistic, part, aup--7 plies of these commodities brought by them just before Christmas every year being extensive.

It had been thought that arrangeihents could easily be mi l de under • the Liability Act to form companies p.’-to- acquire these- vessels, but it now appears that very close. inquiry will be fcanado as to who is to supply the money mm the vessels before any boat will bo towed to bo transferred to them, and sV-thp purchasers Avill not be allowed to sell charter tho boats to an enemy daring f^ J ‘iiho ; --''yar ■or for .five years after' the' exiHpiratioa ,ol the war.
v Tb& Oceanic Company's. steamer which left Sydney on iSaturday, November 21, with aitocord Australian, mail on board for America and London, was-ex-pected to make on effort to reduce the usual? fasti time which provides for ft 19-, days’ rim between. Sydney and San Francisco. On December 10 the Sydney agent received a cable from his principals that the Sonoma arrived at the Californian port early on Wednesday morning, having cut the time down by practically a day and a-quartev. It is contended that the Sonoma, in consequence of this fast run, holds the mercantile and mail record for tho trip, and has ensured delivery of her mails in the Enjrlish metropolis nearly a week ahead of Christmas date.
Approximately 300 German vessels, costing for their upkeep roughly £5,000 per week, are lying at the piers New York (says the ‘ Shipping Gazette Weekly Summary ’ of October 23). As far as can be learned, German expenses are being paid through the medium of New York bankers with Merlin affiliations, but no one will hazard a guess as to when the payments will cease. On one little German tramp steamer alone the weekly wages amount to £SO, with a like sum for food. This class of vessel in New York is already up lor sale, but ’ there are few _ reasonable bids at a time when money is tight, freight scarce, ami risks great. Naturally the two big German companies can withstand a long siege. Tho extensive offices of tho two shipping concerns on Lower Broadway, New York, present a gloomy and deserted appearance, in striking contrast with former scenes of activity and cheerfulness. Empty chairs and closed desks meet the eye on every side, and a quietudo suggestive of rusticity and somnolence pervades tho atmosphere. _ From ono of the few officials remaining in the offices of the Norddentscher-Lloyd Company, who consented to talk to me, I learned that both the Norddeutscher-Lloyd and the Hamburg-Amerkan Lines are prepared to sell offices, fixtures, tugs, piers, and every available asset in the country so* long as they can keep their palatial ships and support their crews until the end of tho war. This official admitted, however, that the struggle would be a hard one, and estimated that if the war continues for a year his company will have paid out in this country for "wages, food, taxes, etc., some millions of dollars.” THE FERRY SERVICE. The Wablne, from Wellington, arrived at Lvttclton at 6.25 this morning, and connected with the first express for tho south. SHIPPING TELEGEAMS. AUCKLAND, December 24.—8.20 a.m..
