The weather was very bad for diving operations, the diver only getting down twice. All the tools belonging to the engine room, a steam pipe, one of the boats' davits, and a small spar, were recovered. The foremast was taken out of the Westport, but ifc broke away and was washed ashore. Mr Ross has now abandoned the idea of saving anything else. The latest particulars received of the steamer Austral state the divers are assiduously at work closing up the steamer. Four centrifugal pumps have been received from Melbourne, and four others, besides those available at Sydney, will be used when pumping operations are commenced. Eight centrifugal pumps have been supplied by Messrs Robinson Bros., of Melbourne, and an additional one is coming from Brisbane. Mr Hilliard, who superintended to a great extent the floating of the Sorafca, is there. Everything that is possible is being done to have her again afloat. Sines 19th November 15 divers have been employed in two shifts, and the work will now proceed uninterrupted from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. The closing up of the ship is proceeding satisfactorily. There are only two or three large coaling ports to close now. Staging is being rigged up for the pumping* apparatus to be placed on, and from below all the loose material is being sent up.
