The ship Dauntless, which has been for some time anxiously looked for by the friends of passengers and by consignees, was towed up in the afternoon as far as the new anchorage, where she remains with the last four arrivals from Europe until berths are found for them by the harbor department. The Dauntless sailed from London on the 12th July; from Gravesend on the 15th, and from theEddystone on the 25th, having experienced strong south-westerly winds in the channel. On August 18th she brought up off Madeira for the purpose of landing Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell, passengers; Mrs. Mitchell being in very delicate health. Subsequently she crossed the equator in 18deg. 45 min. W. on the 4th September, making a passage of 45 days from the Eddystone to the equator. From the equator to the meridian of Greenwich she made a passage of 24 days; and from the meridian of Greenwich to 20 deg. E. 6 days; from 20 deg. E. to 49 deg. E. 9£ days; from from 40 degrees E. to the Snares and thence to Port Chalmers 6 days, having been driven off and on the coast for the last week by the variable and heavj' weather which has been experienced.—Otago Daily Times, Nov. 25. The paddle steamer City of Dunedin, fresh from the stocks in the Clyde sailed thence under command of Captain M'Farlane on the 9th July. Lost sight of land on the third day out, and on the 21st of the month arrived at Madeira, whence, after coaling, she sailed on the 26th, crossed the Line on the 15th of August, steaming so far, then sailipg with light winds until within 600 miles of the Cape, when strong winds were experienced. Arrived abreast of the Solander on the morning of Sunday last, having run 9| knots under sail, with frequent gales and foul weather, during which the vessel behaved admirably, and to the thorough satisfaction of Captain M'Farlane. From the Solander she steamed, making 9 knots, with strong winds ahead on the coast; regular speed 10 knots; draught 6£ feet with full cargo and coals; length 167 feet; beam 23; depth 15; registered tonnage 327, DESTRUCTION OF THE UNITED STATES "WAR STEAMER VANDERBILT BY THE CONFEDERATE STEAMER GEORGIA. Liverpool.—By recent advices we have received information of "the sinking of the Yanderbilt by the Georgia, while in search of the Alabama. It will be remembered that a rumor was afloat, on the authority of an Havana paper, that the above steamer, after an engagement of twenty minutes, between Puerto Rico and St. Thomas, had been sunk. Further particulars have been received from Cape Hueso ; at which place two vessels had arrived, one a pilot boat, which had spoken a vessel that had passed the scene of conflict. The statement runs thus :—The Yanderbilt having received intelligence that a Confederate cruiser was doing damage to American vessels on the Great Bahama Bank, resolved to givne her chase. At daybreak she fell in with the latter, which proved to be the new Georgia guns), and her commander demanded a surrender. Captain Senimes, of the Georgia, answered in the negative; the demand was repeated by the Federal commander with the intimation that he would give no quarter if his summons was not complied with, and received the same reply as before. The contest began without delay, and resulted in the complete destruction of the Vanderbilt, which after an engagement of fifteen to twenty minutes' duration, went down with the crew and everything on board. —Shipping and Mercantile Gazette.
