On Tuesday, 12th instant, an addition was made to our coasting fleet by the launch from tho building yard of Mr. E. Close, Head of the Bay, Akaroa, of a fine ketch of about 38 tons, builders measurement, named the Mary Louisa. She has been built for Messrs. McHutcheson & Co., of Lyttelton, and intended for the river trade, and we trust she may be as successful as the Isabella Jackson, also by the same builder. We regret to learn that Mr. Close met with a serious accident the day previous to the launch, having cut his foot in such a manner that it must be a considerable time before he can again obtain the use of it. The dimensions of the Mary Louisa are 49 feet over all, 14 feet beam, and 5 8-12 th depth of hold. — Lyttelton Times, Jan. 16. ' Arrival of tiie Ship Tiptbee.—This ship arrived at the anchorage off Camp Bay on Wednesday about one o'clock. She was sighted on Tuesday afternoon making for the heads, however towards dusk the captain stood off the land, and the people in port were left to conjecture what ship it really was, yesterday morning however she was seen to bear up well from tho north and eastward as the sea breeze freshened with the flood tide. She left Plymouth on the 20th of October, passed the Cape de Verds on the 6th November, and crossed the line on the 10th, in long. 28 degrees, 43 seconds W.; was in the meridian of the Cape on the 13th December, passed the Snares on the 10th January, making the passage from land to land in 76 days. She spoke the following ships, October 28: The James Banks, from Manilla to London,
143 days out; Agra, from British Columbia, 77 days out; ship Aranaca, from Cardiff for Aden, 25 days out; Queen of the Seas, 112 days out, and the brig Speedy, 54 days out from Liverpool to Colombo. The Tiptree arrives in excellent order, and although they have experienced considerable mortality amongst the children, the ship is a credit to all on board for cleanliness, and is almost free from sickness of any kind. They had eight births and 17 deaths, viz., two from tabes, six measles, three hooping cough, three from other causes, and three infants who only lived a few hours after birth. Capt. Davis was presented with the following testimonial by the cabin passengers. The ship and cargo is consigned to Messrs. J. T. Peacock and Co.— lbid, Jan. 21.
Wbeck of the Schoonee Herald.—On Tuesday morning last Mr. Morrison, the pilot here, observed a small craft running straight for the beach, near the Arowhenua, and thinking it very unusual, he watched her for some time, when he saw her strike; he immediately hoisted the signals for the boatmen, and with as little delay as possible the lifeboat was launched, and on her wav to the wreck with a fair wind. On arriving there it was discovered to be the Herald schooner, from Lyttelton, Miller, owner and captain. It appears that about halfpast six that morning the captain was called from his berth by the mate, who said the schooner was on fire; he immediately went on deck, and lifted up one of the hatches,.when flames burst out; having again closed down the hatch, he went forward, and perceived that she was sinking deeper; he then threw over nine heavy tanks, but it did not appear to ease her much. Thinking it was the only chance for life he resolved to run her on the beach, as he could also then save a large portion of the cargo. Mr. Beswick (the agent), was almost immediately on the spot, and great exertions were made for the preservation of the cargo, a greater part of which was saved, and is being carted into Timaru. She was laden with general cargo for Mr. J. Beswick, and some lime which she has on board is supposed to be the cause of the accident. We are sorry to say that a Mr. Bills, of Arowhenua, has lost a large assortment of clothing, &c, owing to the wet lime getting into the cases. The schooner was not insured and it will be a very heavy loss to the captain and his partner.— lbid, Jan. 26.
Aeeval of the Alpaca.—On Tuesday morning the a barque Alpaca arrived from London, after a passage of oyer 121 days. She left the Downs on the 17th Sept., - and put back to Gravesend for repairs. It was discovered that the rats had gnawed a hole through the planking . below water line, thus causing her to leak. No particular incident occurred on the passage out. She made the land , off Cape Saunders on the 24th. Soon after getting to sea, it was necessary to dispose of some carboys containing i acid stowed on deck; they were thrown overboard. The s barque is in command of Captain Gordon. She is conl signed to Mesrs. Eeece and Co., and brings out a large , cargo selected for this market.—lbid, Jan. 28. The Ship Lyttelton. — Captain Taylor arrived on Saturday at noon in his old ship, but with a new name, , the Lyttelton of Lyttelton, N.Z., the first we believe hail- . ing from and owned in Canterbury. When in the offing it : was difficult to make her out, opinion wavered from the Mermaid to the Volga; soon after the pilot got on board i at the heads (the fine ship was then bearing up with a fair , wind from the N.E.) it was easily discernible that it was the Volga, at the fore the house flag was flying—a black ball on a white square—at the main, the British ensign, and on the signal halyards the staiy and stripes; in less than an hour she was brought up opposite the town. The passage was made in 107 days" from Boston to New Zealand. The following ships were spoken during the voyage Nov. 14, latitude 9.08 N., longitude 31.00 W., ship Nevin; Nov. 17, latitude 4.31 N., longitude 30.15 W., brig Beautiful Star, from . . . for Bremen; Dec. 2, latitude 25.15 S., longitude 28.38 W., ship Four Sisters, from .Sydney for London, forty-three days out; Dec. 36, latitude 43.00 S., longitude 17.00 W., ship Saladin, from London for Calcutta, sixtv-nine davs out.— Ibid, Feb. 2.
