ARRIVED.- -Januarv A Palunna, s.s. -6.30 a.m.;. 2.771 ton*. M'Beth, fr-m AuA:hu:<! and Fast I ~ast ports. Th've steamers domed this m.-iriiiu_ r at Port- Chalmers for overhaul- the i'ohen.a and Knwhai in the new dock an<l the Storm in the old dock. The l-T.ra w,-nr jlo'aii to the Port to-dav to discharge ib-uit- 800 tons of coal before dooldiig. The i'aloona sails m-morrow tor An- klan<! ami East- Coast ports. The Kowhai and the t'oherua will <■oiuplete survey at Port Chalmers this week. The Kaiapoi left Melbourne on Saturday for Sydney to discharge the balance of hpr cargo of timber. The Wairana left Wellington on Thursday for Newcastle direct, where she loads for Lytt-Uon. The Kamona and Karon are now both. ■undergoing survey at Wellington. After calling at Lyttelton. the steamer Anglo-Brazilian id due here in a day or two to complete her discharge. She will then go on the loading berth for London. Trie Ulimaroa leaves Wellington on I Thursday for Sydney. j The' Niagara leaves Auckland on Mon- 1 day, January 11. for Sydney in place of the Maheno, which remains laid up nt Byd ney. The Wanaka left Auckland on S.itnr- j day. She -was due at Napier to-day. and afterwards comes to Lyttelton to load transhipments ex the Aparima, and then ■proceeds to Timaru, Oa'tnaru. Bluff, and Dnnedin. She lays up h-rc for survey. We have good reason tor believing thai the Warrimoo will be requisitioned by the Government as a troopship to earry the j reinforcements of the Expeditionary "Force j from New Zealand, and also that the j troopship Hawke's Bay. on her return to New Zealand, -will go into dock at Port Chalmers. According to cable advices received in j Wellington, the (', and D. Line's steamer j Star of India (H.M.N.7..T. No. Bj. whieh left Wellington on October 16 with part of the Expeditionary Force for Egypt. has I ;arrived in London. " ; The Shaw-S avi 11 liner Arawa ' iH.M.N.Z.T. No. 10). after landing her troops in Egypt, went on to Gibraltar to Viad a quantity of frozen prodit e from | New Zealand ports. The Shaw-Savill liner Rangatirn. vdiieh was requisitioned by the Australian Government as a troopship, arrived at London on December 24. Hartlepool has received a .severe blow by the decision of the directors of Fur-nr-ss. Witty, and Co., of whom Lord Furiiess is chairman, to remove their headquarters to Liverpool as from tho present month of January. All departments are involved. The firm not only <ontroi a large fleet of steamers, but have extensive industrial and commercial pursuits, which involve the transference of a big staff to the larger city. The magnificent North German Lloyd steamship Kronprinze.->sin Ceci'e. which returned to America after war was declared, presents a war problem of considerable interest. She is now in the bailiffs' hands;, and is guarded by the revenue cutter Mohawk and a torpedo boat. Just off the coast British commerce destroyers are lurking, ready at the first opportunity to dispose of the German steamship. So long as the Cecile remains within the American three-mile limit she is immune lro,-n attack; but it is found that to convey her to a suitable winter berth she must pass out beyond the three-mile limit. The United States has a very material interest in the vessel, because of a claim filed against her by a New York bank. As she ha 3 been -seized by the United ■States, the Cecile is really "United States Government property for the time being under American, law. There would be no necessity for the British to recognise this peculiar status on the high sea?. There phe 'would be a German merchantman, liable to attack. To leave the steams''.ip through the winter at Bar Harbor, where jco -would almost inevitably destroy her, •would make the United States liable possibly to her German owners, and would rob American bankers o£ their security. It is desired, therefore, to take her to JB ostoh or New York. That would mean a trip round Cape Cod. and there a big vnssel like the Cecilo must go out bevond .the three-mile limit. It is hoped at Washington (says the New York correspondent '■ot the London • Dailv Telegraph ) that, in Tiew of tho special circumstances of 'the case, the British Govera.nont will inalfe concession.*, and allow an American collier to tow the German to winter quarters. The Ardgarry, Tinder the auspices of ihe U.S. and A. Line, is due here about lhe"*nd Of this month from New York via Trcm Duuedm she goes to JWbuma, S..f*uey, and Frenmntle. Ship masters ar# warned that tho JachHead light was extinguished last wpfk, and was to be relighted as soon 39 convenient. The beacon is one of the unattended variety, and, like others of it-B kind, is liable to be extinguished without noti-oe. En route from Montreal to Dunedin via Australian and northern ports, the New Zealand Shipping Company's chartered steamer Wirral arrived at Melbourne last Tuesday. After visiting Sydney th© Wirral will go to Auckland, Wellington, »a& Lyttelton. and is due here about Janimry &5 for final discharge. T'he Union Company's steamer Waitemata, -which left San* Francisco on December 20, is due at Wellington about the 12th inst. She is bringing about 8,500 tons of general cargo for Wellington, and -will proceed thence to Australia *» discharge*
1 It is reported that tho British Joint Committee of shipowners and. seamen's representatives havo decided to recommend tho steamship owners of Liverpool to grant an advance of £1 per month to seamen during the continuance of the war. In view of the present scarcity of seamen, this should tend, as it is "designed, to attract men to the mercantile service, which is now probably better paid than most classes of labor ashore.
