The A.S.N. Co.'s s.s.s. City of Melbourne left Sydney at a quarter past six p.m. on the 10th inst. ; experienced light northerly winds and fine weather to Jarvis Bay, then strong southerly breeze to Cape Howe, which was rounded at half-past five p.m. on the following day, then fine weather until eight a.m. on the 12th,when a strong south westerly gale sprang up which lasted for several hours : passed Wilson's Promontory at one p.m. on the samo day, entered Port Philip Heads at one a m., and arrived in Hobson's Bay at four a.m. yesterday.

THE P. and O. Co.'s R.M.S. Northam was sighted by the City of Melbourne at half-past nine a.m. on the 12th inst., thirty-five miles N.E. of Wilson's Promon-


THE O.S.N. Co.'s s.s. Albion left Dunedin at half past six p.m. on the 6th instant, and arrived in Hob son's Bay at three p.m. on Saturday. Captain

McLachlan reports having encountered a succession of very heavy head gales from the westward through out the passage.  

THE steamship City of Hobart, hence for Otago, was sighted by the Albion at half-past six p.m. on the

11th inst. off Goose Island.

CAPTAIN ROSSITER, of tho brig Wave, reports the following : - " Left Newcastle, N.S.W., on the 28th ult. Had to contend against strong gale from S.W., W., and N.W., which lasted until the 11th inst., when the vessel was thirty-five miles west of Redondo. Since then has had S.E. winds to arrival on Saturday last. The following vessels were sighted during the pas- sage : - October 7, Tomatin, barque, from Newcastle for Wallaroo, off Hogan's Group ; 9th inst., Gold seeker, schooner, from Adelaide for Sydney ; and same day, Mary Ann, schooner, from Hobart Town for Brisbane; and a screw steamer, brig-rigged, under steam, steering N.E.

VESSELS SPOKEN. - Roxburgh Castle, Plymouth to Melbourne, 21st September, in lat. 41deg. N., and lon. 61deg. W., by the Roman (s.s.), at Southamp ton. By the Mary Frances, September 21st, Annie Longton, ship, from London for New Zealand, lat. 38deg. 59min. S., lon. 12 dcg. 10min. E.

THE manifests of the Warrior, from Hong Kong, and the Mary Frances, from Liverpool, will he pub- lished when those vessels enter at the Customs.

THE Chilian barque Maria Sophia, from Valparasio,   which arrived in Hobson's Bay on Saturday last, with a cargo of flour, has been ordored on, with her cargo,

on to Dunedin.

THE steamship Western took a trial trip on Satur- day last. During her lay-up she has been fitted with new steem chest (Rowen's patent condenser having been removed), so that, what with the new boilers she received twelve months since, she is now in much better order than when she first arrived from Eng- land. No expense has been spared to render her an efficient sea-going vessel. She left the Melbourne wharf at one p.m., proceeding down the Yarra, steamed round the West Channel lightship, the dis- tance from light to light being run in two hours twenty-five minutes against a fresh south-west breeze. The run up was made in two hours and five minutes, thus giving a speed of ten knots, though the vessel was out of trim and her propeller about ono foot out of water. Her saloon accommodation has also been greatly improved. A numbor of gentlemen connected with the intercolonial trade were on board during the trip.

THE Charles Edward returned to the wharf on Saturday night, having been absent only four days and three hours from heads to heads, during which timo she has visited the Lake ports and discharged and received cargo. Great complaints are made that, although this trade has now been open fully six   months, no steps have been taken by the Government to grant facilities for transit of bonded goods, but storekeepers are still compelled to pay duties in Mel- bourne, and, in additon to interest of money, are com- pelled to pay insurance on such duties. The protec- tion of the revenue, moreover, demands that Customs officers should be at once stationed at the Lakes.

THE s.s. Royal Shepherd left the wharf, Port Albert, at half-past five p.m November 11, and arrived at the Queen's Wharf at ten a.m. on Saturday last.  

The s.s. Penola left Adelaide on Wednesday, and discharged a large cargo at Guichen Bay, and took on board 485 bales wool for Melbourne. Called at   MacDonnell Bay and landed passengers, the weather being too bad to land cargo. Experienced fresh breezes from the westward, with heavy swell, through- out the passage.

THE barque Escape, from Leith, via Dunedin, after beating about the New River Heads for some days, came in through the New Channel on Monday morn- ing, and was taken in tow by the steamer William Miskin, at the Lower Pool, and taken to the Upper Pool. - Southland Times, Nov. 2.
