After discharging and luatiiiig cargo she sailed again for Hokitika and this port on the morning of Wednesday, the lltkinst., and experienced strong head winds during the trip, which dei layed her considerabty, and made her run short of coals. In consequence^ she put into this port yesterday morning, before proceeding to Hokitika, aa was originally intended. She brings" a large cargo, and a number of sheep, which have arrived to a very good market. The s.B. Gothenburg arrived off the bar on Thursday forenoon, haviug left Nelson on the previous day. The Persevere did not Btart from the wharf to t,ake out her passengers, mail, and gold until about four p.m., when -fli'e tide had fccg'nn to flow. She was firm on the bank of shingle alongside the wharf, and required the assistance of the Woodpecker to haul her off. She had not proceeded far down the river when she stuck on a spit running flut from the Nelson side, )ind remained there hard and fast for two tours. When she floated it was quite dark, but Captain M'Meekan proceeded over the bar, transhipped his passengers into the Gothenburg, and returned to'port about nine p.m., with the schooner Tanibo in tow, The schooner Murray, Captajn Holloway, from Melbourne, wasgignalled off the bar on Thursday aftgwioon, and was towed into port yesterday forenoon by the tugs Persevere .and Wqotjpeoker. .She Jefi Melbourne; on the 245J.K June, and experienced during the early part" of "j£he. voyage strong northerly and north-east winds, jvhich increased to a heavy gale from the north-east.

She brings a large cargo of general merchandise in good order and condition. ; The schooner Tanibo, wliich was towed in by the Perecvcrc on Thursday night, is from Hokitika, in ballast, and comes here for a cargo of coals. She has since moved over to the Cobden wharf, in order to ship her cargo. ''..., The London ship King of Trumps, bound for Otago, put into Hpbart Town for repairs on the 14th ult. " Arrival of the Cook Stkait Cable. — The JVeie Zealand Advertiser, of the 4th iust., has the following:— "The Weymouth arrived yesterday with the Cook Strait telegraphic cable on board, after a passage ofp2 days from England. This fine vessel has arrived in capital order, although she encouutered some very heavy weather since she sighted New We believe that the cable will be turned jmt in as good condition as when it., was shipped, having been most carefully stow'etl on board." i. There is still the utmost uncertainty as to tthe fate of the ketvh Caroline, which we have already reported as having left this port "for i Hunt's Beach or Bruce Bay on the" 14th ult., aikl as haying been unheard of sinco that time. Various repi^rtf; haye been made by parties coming up from that vicinity, but no reliable information, either favorable or unfavorable' to the hopps of those interested, has been received. During Captain Tun.: bull's recent visit to Okavifca, that gentlemar, wjth. Mr. Yates, 'Captain Heron, and A,r Tizard, interested themselves in raising a subscription for the purpose of sending a messenger as far as Jackson's Bay, to glean such information as might be obtainable. Upwards of twenty pounds was very proinpty subscribed, but the sum is scarcely sufficient for the necessary expenses, and it has been resolved in the meantime to wait advices from Bruce Bay. In the absence of any favorable news from that quarter, the money will probably be expended in despatching a messenger from Bruce Bay. At present the fund has been lodged: in the Bank of New South Wales, in thenames of Captain Heron and Mr Tizard.— Westland Observer, Ju)y 7. The s.s. -William Miskiu steamed i'njlo port yesterday forenoon, after a smart run from Hokitika of one hour and forty minutes. She left Dunedin at 8 a.m. on the Sth inst., with strong head winds and heavy sea, and after a smart run of 23 hours, arrived at Bluff Harbor the next day at 7 a.m. Sailed from the Bluff at noon, .and experienced splendid weather during the passage found to Hokitika, off which port she anchored at 11 p.m. on the 1 1 th, crossing the bar safely next morning. The West Coast Times says : — "A considerable period has elapsed since the William Miskiu last visited this port, and her long absence was occasioned by the thorough overhaul she underwent inDnnedin. Very extensive alterations and repairs were effected, all her bottom plates having been removed and new ones substituted ; whilst her machinery was closely inspected and placed in thorough working order. We welcome with pleasure the return of this smart little boat, and trust that her. visits to tliis port will for the future be as constant aiid remunerative as they were of yore." The William Miskin reports that the Alhanibra, s.s., from Melbourne to Dunedin, fell in with a fearful gale of: wind when off the West Cape, on the Bth inst. Out of a deckload of thirty horses, twenty -nine were washed overboard or drowned, and the total loss and damage she sustained is estimated at £2005,, Tub Stranding of the Brpcr^^jP^ following details of the strWidyjjjjf^f tjt c steamer Bruce are given^pif^^ j fromMr.Oreei^wh^j^^^^ to Mr G Hf r P e F.

When wo arrived' on Sunday there was a stiff breeze from the N.EI, aiuVa heavy sea. At dayligiit it was too thick to make anything out ; but at seven o'ciock Kcrley stood in, and when he had made out the flagstaff with the red flag flying, found himself a little, too far to the southward, with a very strong current froqt the northward; There was sucii a high sea on the bar, and it was breaking so far- outside, that she made but very slow; progress as' the; seas .quite choked the wheels, and wehad the first of the ebb against in also.
