Two old muzzle-loading cannon, which have been dismantled at the Heads, were brought up to Dunedin to-day on a punt. It is said that they have been disposed of and are going up country as curios. WAIMANA ARRIVES. The big oversea liner Wainiana arrived at Port Chalmers this morning from Alexandria. She left 12 days after the Tahiti and Maungantii. The trip was uneventful. Interest attaches to the Waimana, as she was the only vessel in the Australasian transport fleet to pick up the urgent wireless messages despatched from Cocos Island »s the notorious Emden approached. The Waimana communicated the important messages to the Maungantii, which transmitted them to the Minotaur. The Sydney was then despatched to destroy the Gorman marauder, a ■commission' she effectually performed, although one of the Emden's shells -went clean through her hull, entering one side and passing out the other, the passage being marked by gaping holes in the hull plates. The Waimana goes into dock this evening for cleaning and painting. Then she dismantles her transport fittings and goes on the loading berth.
