"Shipper" (writing in the Lyttelton Times) says it is reported that part of the bosiness which has taken Mr James Mills, manager of the Union Steamship Company, to New South Wales is to endeavour to buy up the steamers Albion and Dupleix which are to be run between Sydney and New Zealand in opnosition to the Union Company. The Fairfield Shipbuilding and Bngineering Company (Limited) launched from their yard on January 23 a steel screw steamer of about 5000 tons for the Norddeutscher Lloyd, of Bremen. As the vessel left the ways she wa3 named tbe Munchen. Her principal dimensions are: Length overall, 405 ft • breadth, 46ft 6in; depth, 33ft. The Munchen, like her sister ship the Dresden, has been constructed In accordance with the newest regulations of the Germanischer Lloyd, under their special survey, and will be classed in the highest grade of that society. The number and tonnage of British vessels respecting whose loss reports were received at the Board of Trade during the month of January 1889, and the number of lives lost, are as follows-.—Sailing vessels 52, itonnage 10,935, lives lost 39.

THB TRAINING SHIP CUMBERLAND.
The Cumberland training ship was completely destroyed by fire at the mouth of the Gareloch on the morning of February 18. The fire was discovered at midnight of the 17th, and every endeavour was made to subdue it, but from the inflammable nature of the material about the vessel it was found impossible to do so, and those in charge at once set about to save the lives of the people on board, consisting of some 400 boys, with the officers and masters. At the cry of "fire" the boys rushed on deck in n semi nude condition, and in their endeavours to escape from the vessel some very exciting scenes took place. Some of them were unable to escape from their dormitories, and leapt through the portholes into the water, where they swam about until they were picked up by the boats. Several boys were injured while attempting fco put out the fire snd had to be attended byDr Keid, the ship's surgeon. Eventually all hands were conveyed safely to the training brig Cambria, and afterwards laniled. The Cumberland was a wooden frigate of the third class, and took part in Rodney's victory off Cape St. Vincent in 1780. She was lent by the Admiralty many years ago to the Clyde Training Ship Association, and in that capacity proved extremely useful. As a rule about 400 boys were kept on board, and since the establishment of the association, in June 1869, 2606 boys have been admitted and 2225 have left the ship. The commander of the Cumberland was Captain George Samuel Deyerell.R.N., who was appointed in 1888, on the resignation of Captain Jones Parry, R.N. The fire is supposed to have been the work of an incendiary.and four of the boys, named William Lewis, John Bankin, Jacob Napier, and James M'Vey, ranging from 14 to 15 yearß of age, were apprehended on suspicion.
