In answer to a paragraph in our shipping news or this subject, a conespondent writes :— The fiwi red light consisted of one of the Lightship's Argand lamps and silvered reflectors. The new light consists of three of the Stutt lights, lamps, and three reflectors. In fact, the lamps and reflec tors, though not of the newest description, are ol excellent quality and of sufficient intensity. J colouring lights there is a greatSloss of power. In red shades four-sevenths of the power is lost, in green more than five-sevenths; but as it is not intended that the jetty light should be seen more than six miles, the loss of intensity is therefore of little consequence. The commander of the Flinders saw the liftht on Thursday night at six miles, although it was very hazy. Probably your correspondent estimates the intensity of the light b- viewing it from a boat at a short distance, con sequently oelow the plane of the focal centre.' The Coorong arrived on Friday morning at day ' light, when Captain McLean steamed into a capital position close to the jetty end. and courteously waited several minutes to allow the boardin officers time to pull off. The passage from Mel bourne has been quite a pleasure trip, smooth water and fine weather being the orders of the day. The Government Schooner Flinders returned on Friday morning, and cruised about the anchor age while the master landed for orders; and on the afternoon's tide she sailed into harbour. THE Fire Queen —The adventures of the beach rangers would form quite a readable book if taken in hand by some nautical writer who could enter fully into the spirit of the amphibious existence passed by those erratic creatuies. There may be uarkboisterousnightsto contend with occasionally, but there are also some pleasant recollections awakened by dwelling on farewell entertainments, where the masters and friends pass a few happy hours, as on board the Fire Queen on Thursda night. Captain Duggan was here many years bock in the Truro, when he married an Adelaide lady: and in consequence became somewhat identified with the interests of the colony-so much so that the intention of the Fire Queen's voyage was to have laaded for London; but finding homeward cargoes not availrble, she was hud on for China. When ready for sea a few choice spirits visited the ship, and after a cold collation proceeded to drink the health of Captain Thomas Duggan. The response was that of a sailor; and, a few other matters pertinent to the occasion being discussed, the guests left with a round of cheers. Early the following morning the ship sped on her way, to return again at the end of the year. VESSELS IN HARBOUR. ALBERT, schooner (British). 30 tons, Swiggs. master, from Kangaroo Island.
