(7.50 ;\.m.). 2.809 tons.: M'Millan. from Timaru. SAlLED.—January 4. j Corinna, s.s. (6 p.m. i. 1.27 L tons. Cam-j »ron. for Oamaru. i The Paloona sailed tn-day for A ink- I land and East Coast ports. i On completion of her overhaul, the ! Poh-rua will sail on Friday for West-j port via New Plymouth and way ports. The Kowhai will sail on Thursday for B-iuff and Wellington. The Vacuum Oil Company's steamer Caldergrove arrived this morning from Timaru. and was berthed at the Victoria wharf. She has about 2,800 cases of nil to discharge at this port, and will probably complete discharge at the end of the week. The Breeze is .due to-morrow from northern ports, and will sail in the nft-ernoon for Wauguiiui via Lvnelton and Wellington. A Sydnev message states that during !n.-t year 5,152 vessels arrived at Newrastle. compared with 5,481 in the previous year. The* Whakatane is due to-morrow from London via northern ports, and after putting out 1.250 tons of general cargo she will load at various ports under the auspices of the New Zealand Shipping Company. Word has been received by Messrs Turubull. Martin, and Co. that the Jlallamshire left New York on December 19 for New Zealand ports. The El Cordobes. from Liverpool via northern ports, is due here about January 18 to complete her discharge, after which she takes the loading berth for West of England ports. The Westmeath left Liverpool on December 3 for New- Zealand ports, and is due at Auckland on January 26. After discharging up north she will came to Dunedin about February 8 for final discharge, and will subsequently load for Avonmouth. The first pile of the Castlecliff wharf extension at Wanganid was placed in position and driven home en Wednesday. It is evident (savs the ' Chronicle') that the driving of the piles through tho hard papa, as in the case of the previous work done in the vicinity, will be fairly jtjbffirult. It is interesting to note that quite * large proportion of the hands now in the employ of the Harbor Board were cn•itatred at the inception of the "go-ahead'' policy several years ago. This is a very good indication of the excellent relations existing between the board's foreman, Mr J. Sutherland, and the men under his control. A possible light was thrown on the apparent ease with which German cruisers ie tb° Pacilie have obtained coal (says the San Francisco correspondent of the New Zealand 'Herald') by the recent seizure of the British steamer Lowther Grange off Guaymas. Mexico, loaded with fuel. She was taken by the British cruiser Newcastle, transferred to H.M.S. Rainbow, and headed into port at Victoria. British Columbia. This is the first prize brought :o Victoria since the outbreak of the war. The captain of the Lowther Grange- said , ; ie was bound from Rockhamptou. U.S.A.. t-o Port Pirie, South Australia. The former port is imaginary, and the route from the Straits of Magellan to Australia would take the vessel nowhere near the vicinity in which she was captured. Moreover, she was drawing considerably less water than the draft given by her papers on clearing her last port of call, and. as the explanation regarding the destination of her fuel cargo was altotether unsatisfactory, there was no alternative open to the commander of the Newcastle but to place a priz? crew aboard. The Lowther Grange is owned by the Neptune Steam Navigation Company. Ltd.. Sutherland. A San Francisco firm, Messrs J. J. "Moore and Co., in 'a telecram of protest to the Secretary of State. Mr Bryan. asserts that the Lowther Grange, "with a cargo of our coal aboard, shipped [rom Newcastle. Australia, and consigned to the Southern Pacific Company of Mexico, a neutral, was seized off Guaymas. October 11. by the British cruiser Newcastle.'' These statements hopelessly conflict with what the captain of the seized steamer is said to have told tho boarding party. THE FERRY SERVICE.
