THE Ben Cruachan, from London, with passengers and a full general cargo, got up to the anchorage on Saturday night. The Ben Cruachan is now in the 10th year of her running, and during that period she has accomplished some remarkablv quick passages. She was built to trade from the Clyde to Melbourne, but from the superiority of her passenger accommo- dation, as well as for her proved sailing capabilities, passengers and freight have for a number of con-   secutive voyages have been found for her in London   and along with her sister ship, the Ben Voirlich, is now retained in the London trade. The present passage of the Ben Cruachan has been made under disadvan- tages, not the least of which is a foul bottom. This is the third voyage since the ship has been docked and     it is surprising how she gets along without the clean- ing process. Before leaving here, however, with a wool freight this season, the Ben Cruachan will be docked and cleaned, and tho bottom will have a coat- ing of patent anti-fouling composition. A comple-   ment of saloon and second cabin passengers have come out in the ship. Amongst them is Mr Robert Sutherland, for many years manager of the exten- sive ropeworks at the seaport of Leith, N.B., and who has come out to settle in Sydney.    

Mrs. Young, wife of Mr. Young, the surveyor who disappeared so mysteriously with several others, some time ago while on an expedition to Bermagui, is   also a passenger by this ship. A sad accident occurred during the passage, by which Thomas Hughes, a passenger, aged about 15 years, fell overboard, and was       drowned. Every effort was made to save him, but     without success. His mother and other members of his family were passengers. The event had a depress- ing effect on board for a time. The Ben Cruachan left London on May 2, and had light easterly weather down channel. The pilot left her off Dartmouth on May 4, and thence the winds were westerly and light to Port. Santo, which was passed on May 13. The N.E.  

trades commenced in lat. 30deg N. but the winds were light and fickle, and alternated between N.N.E.    

and N.W. The ship was on the equator on June 3, in   lon. 22deg. W., and the S.E. trades were   fallen in with about the same time. The winds proved quite as light as those to the north of the line, and the work done was not very brilliant. The trades were got rid of in lat. 24deg. S., whence light northerly winds prevailed to the prime meridian, which was crossed on June 2, in lat. 41deg. S. A good run thence was made past the Cape of Good Hope, the meridian of which was crossed on June 27, in lat. 43deg. S. Between this and lat. 42deg. the easting was run down, with weather en-tirely the reverse of that which had predominated until then. Gales from N.W. to W. were numerous

and severe, and squalls came fast and furious. These outbursts of weather were followed by sudden calms of about 48 hours' duration, and after the lulls the storms would follow up with increased violence. The longitude of Cape Leuwin was crossed on July 22, in lat. 41deg. S., and thence to lon. 135deg. E. the ship       come along splendidly, with the help of strong northerly and W.N.W. winds. On Thursday last the         wind shifted suddenly to S.W., and blew a complete drift for about three hours, and then steadied into a strong gale until making Cape Otway at midnight on July 27. The Heads were entered next day, 86 days from     London, or 84 days from off Dartmouth. The ship Is in admirable order, as usual, and a discharging berth will be found for her at Sandridge railway pier.

Tile faramungon her present \ojagcfrom New castle has had au experience of exceptional I j heavy weather, which resulted hi her sustaining some damage to her deck fittings Tho mischief was dono after rounding Wilson s Promontory on tho afternoon of tho 27th inst Tho winds, which had been north westerly all tho way from Newcastle, gathorcd fresh force in tho straits, and had increased to a hard gale off tho Promontorj When off Cleft Island the wind veered to bW, and for four hours rated mt» hurricano violenco This brought up a tremendous sea, which mado clean breaches over tho vessel, and was dangerous while tho gale was at its height Ono towering sea of moro than oui i

nary volume broke on deck and carried away tho after steering whee), breaking it short off bj tlio stock Tlio binnacle and ever j thing elsa movcablo on deck was swept awav bj tho resistless rush of water, and a portion of tho malnrail also went The weather moderated carlj on Saturday morning, and continued easier on tho remainder of tho passage Tho Taramung left Newcastle at noon on tho ¿)th Inst, and passed Gabo atop in on tho Mb Tho Heads were entered at 10 minutes past 10 a m on Saturday, and on arrival in the baj at half past 1 p m , the Taramung went alougsidu tho steamship Killarney at Sandridge railway pier to put coal into lie

Tho arrivals from the westward, as well as those from the eastward, have also something to say cou corning the heavy weather raging along tho coast during the lattor part of last week Tho In \ cstlgator, v.hich left Adelaide at half past 0 a.m on thu 20th inst, arrived off King ston at half past 10 inn same day, hut wau prevented from culling there on account of a hcavj gala which had arisen, and which waa attended with hard squalls and a storm oí thunder and lightning There was a rapidly falling barometer, and in the faco of all this Captain Brown considered It his w iscst course to proceed 011 to Mel

Tho gale continued to increase, and tho sua with It, and when off Cape Hanks at7am on tho 27th tho squalls carne down witt» hurricane force, and were accompanied with hail Towards noon tho t,alo abated, but tho sea still ran high During this period tho wind vocred N W round westerly toWbW, from which point it blew with greatest force As tlie wind hauled further to the southward it de creased In violenco and the squalls were less frequent Tho lowest reading of tiio barometer dm lug the gale was 20 30 and while the tempest was at its height some si if, ht damage was done to tho after steering gear bv an intrusive bca Capo Northum borland was passed at 1 p m on the 27th and Capo Otway at 0 a.m on tho iSth, tho Heads bciiiL entered
