The Niagara, which is due to arrive at Auckland on Monday, is also bringing 10.000 bushels from Vancouver for tha northern port. Owing to the examination steamer at the Wellington Heads requiring a pilot always in attendance, it has been found necessarv to retain the services of the deputy "harbor master. Captain Shilling, who was to have retired last Thursday on superannuation. The examination steamer has thrown a heavy burden on the pilot staff, who are amply engaged without extra work. The Italian ship Antonio Padre, bound from Marseilles to Brisbane with a cargo of tiles, has put into Bunhury in trouble. She left Marseilles on August 9, and in a prolonged passage of 132 days ran short fif fresh provisions. The captain developed symptoms of berri berri, and it was decider! to put into Bunbury for medical lid. The captain was landed. Arrangements have been made for the vessel to proceed on her voyage without him. The Whakatane, under charter to the Federal-Shire Company, arrived last evening from Liverpool via northern ports. She was berthed at the Victoria wharf, where the will land 1,250 tons of general cargo. On completion of her discharge she will revert to the New Zealand Shipping Company for Homeward loading. Captain D. J. Williams, who has been in the employ of the Union Company for 37 years, is to retire from the managership of the Newcastle branch at the etui of the month. His successor will be Mr C. H. Morgan, lato manager at New Plymonth and Suva. Advices received in Sydney stated that Ifie steamer Shirley had been abandoned »t seA on fire. At the time the vessel was bound to Hongkong with a general cargo valuedat £90,000 "from New York. "Britain for Britons," which is becoming tha motto of many of the trades hitherto dominated by foreigners, is now being taken up by the most important of all—the mercantile marine. For many years past dismay has been caused by the Increasing number of foreign sailors engaged on British ships. No doubt the war will in time put a stop to the employment of German and Austrian sailors, but mors drastic steps are necessary. An official notice issued by the Board of Trade is of jrreat importance. This is fin appeal to the British ship masters to employ as far as possible only British teamen during the war. Included in tha latest charters are the following :—Sator, ship, 1,133 tons, BusHelton to New Zealand, jarrah : Hesperos, iteamer, 4,354 tons, St. John to New Zealand, wheat; Largo Law, steamer, 3.974 ions, New Zealand ports to London, wool and general; Anglo-Bray'di an, steamer, 7,488 tons, New Zealand potts to London, wool and general. "Rather singular in appearance is the .Norwegian steamer Thor, which recently arrived at Melbourne from Puget Sound with a laTge cargo of Baltic timber for Messrs Gunnersen and Co. Its funnel is not only well aft, as mostly obtains in oil boats, but forward of the bridge are iron square supports, having at a distance the appearance of derricks, but which are actually square iron frames that are supposed to strengtheu the vessel and assist in the deck cargo stacking. THE FERRY SERVICE. The Wahine. from Wellington, arrived Bt Lyttelton at 7.15 this morning, and connected with the first express for the south.
