The Otago Daily Times, of the 25th inst , contains the following paragraph :— " We are authorised to state that the New d Shipping Company's arrangements are now completed for establishing a steam service quite irrespective of ,the tenders called for by the Government, which are on such conditions as are not likely to result in a service which will be advantageous to the colony from a passenger point of Tiew. The first steamer of the New Zealand Shipping Company's line will proceed to Wellington and Lyttelton, and load at the latter port in March ; after that the directors of the company will be open to make satisfactory arrangements for loading steamers of tbe line at Port Chalmers, and oi her places as trade may warrant. The steamers are all to be fitted with the most approved refrigerating machinery. The vessels are not likely to exceed a draft of 22ft to 23ffc loaded, and it is to be hoped the Harbor Board will do their utmost forthwith to secure the entry of such vessels at or near high water. The passenger accommodation of the boats, wbich are beiug builfc- for the company by Messrs Elder, of the Clyde, will be of tbe most superior description, and the vessels will be fitted with all modern appliances. The sea-going speed will be 12 knots. With such boats a45 to 50 days' service, with easy running, will be assured. Whether the proposals of the Government are taken up or not, therefore, the colony is certain to see a direct service established next year — one that we are assured will not be of a local nature, but applicable to the whole colony as trade requirenienls may demand." The British King, the first chartered vessel of the new service, will bring out passengers and cargo for Port Chalmers, and, indeed, all New Zealand ports ; but the question of her attempting to enter Otago Heads depends altogether upon the progress made there in the meantime in deepening (he bar.. Under present circumstances the chance seems very remote.
