We believe this is the shortest passage ever made round the Peninsula,- but under the circumstances above-mentioned cannot be considered as as any more than an average passage of this fine boat. It is contemplated to perform a weekly service with the City of Dunedin and Geelong alternately, and Akaroa may anticipate a large increase in the number of t visitors to her beautiful scenery, with the increased facility of communication, aud, as we learn also, largely increased accomodation for visitors in the town itself. i AKAROA. !

She sailed on the 26th Aug., and has therefore made a very good passage, beating the Green Jacket, which sailed before her. The Bombay comes into port in splendid order, for which Capt. Sellers deserves great credit, —the more so from the fact that the ( passengers speak highly of his attentiveness to their wants. The vessel is consigned to Messrs. Cruickshank, Smart, & j Co., and we may mention that she brings £4000 worth of clothing for the Volunteers in New Zealand, which has ' been forwarded to the General Government by Mr. Mor- j rison, agent for the colony in London. There has also arrived by her the second instalment of gas plant for the ! Auckland Gas Company, the remainder being in the Green 1 Jacket. —Southern Cross. 1 The Ocean Mail, a fourteen years' classed ship at Lloyd's, < 800 tons register, commanded by Captain Linklater, has been lost in the China seas. She was bound to England * from Shangai with a valuable cargo of teas and silk, roughly valued at £100,000, and appears to have foundered six miles off the entrance of the river Woosung. No < mention is made of the crew. The ship and cargo are stated to be insured in London and China. The rock in Hawke's Bay upon which Captain Gibson, of the Auckland, reported his vessel to have touched, but ' which many supposed to have been a floating spar or other ( part of the wreck of the Royal Bride, proves to be a reality —Mr. Murray, the pilot, having, when in Auckland, seen it laid down on an Admiralty chart, a copy of which he obtained. He hopes shortly to have the hidden danger discovered and buoyed.—Smoke's Bay Herald, ( Nov. 11, The Napier.—This fine vessel arrived on Tuesday last, 1 from London, after a voyage of only eighty-three days, the / quickest passage, we believe, that has ever been made to this port. The Napier is a new iron vessel, this being her ( first voyage, and is one of the finest ships that ever entered our harbour. Her cabin accommodation is equal to our ' best steamers, and commanded by so general a favourite r as our old acquaintance, Captain Petherbridge, formerly of * the Maori, the Napier cannot fail to become a favourite ( vessel for passengers. The Napier has brought out a large number of birds for the Provincial Government, and 6 some Cotswold sheep for C. B. Wither, Esq.—Nelson { jExaminer, December 10.
