The P.M. Company's Now Steamer Zcalnndia, which is intended for the new mail line between Sydney and San Francisco.hns arrived at'Melbourne after the splen 'fle'd passage of 40 days' from the Clyde.-The 'Daily JWim describes the ship as "a handsome irán'screw .vteamer. 2,800 tons gro-.s i caster,'built ,by Messrs J. Elder,and Co., of Fairfield, Covan, and of the following ¡dimensions ¡-Length hetweou perpendiculars, 370ft. ; ^i'readth'mouldod, 37Aft. ; depth moulded, 29ft. Heren gmëa are'500-horso power nominal, and are constructed upon the builders' compound three-cylinder principle, 'having invertod cylinders, diroctacting. The diameter« of the cylinders are-one -loin., and two t\2iu. The vessel in rigged as a four masted schooner. The vessel ' is also'fitted up with hydraulic steoring-gear, and all

the latest improvements have been employed in perfect- ing her working machinery. She is fitted up in a very complete manner, accommodation being provided for 170 first class, 30 second-class, and 100 third-class pas- sengers, while exclusive quarters aro provided for the officers and screw, who number 90 in all.

'The proven speed of the steamers which are to perform the new San Francisco Sorvicc, will bo likely to throw tho P. and O. Company's time into tho shade, unless the latter place mole modem mid faster steamers on the lAustralian line than they are ut present employing. ,The sister ship to the Zealandia, the Australia, left the Clyde on the 20th January, and may therefore be ¡looked for at Melbourne about tho 7th March.

'l The mission brig John Wesley, arrived on the 30th «It. Captain Maunsoll reports that he left Tonga on the 10th January. At midnight, 11th, experienced a heavy squall, which blew away lower iuaintopsail, ship running eleven knots ; bout another topsail and set it : towards sunrise wind taking off considerably and by 0 a.m. fine weather with moderato breeze set in. On tho 14th November it commenced to blow heavily from the eastward at Tongatabu, and increased to almost hurri- cane force till the 19th, with heavy rain, doing much damage ashore and to the shipping. The Martin Luther, Russian ship, lying at Lifuka with 750 tons of copra on hoard, had to cut away all her masts to save the ship, and the Upolo, German schooner, parted her, chains and was driven on «boro at the same piace. She' has since been got off by the German wur-Hhrp Gazelle, and is coming up to Sydney in ballast to repair. The Taf ahau had a narrow escape at Nukualofa, riding with both chains out to tho lui u cuds, and all her yards and topmasts down. The chains cut throughher hawse pipes and the sea was making a breach over her at times. On tho 20th it began to moderate. During the gale the wind veered from N.E. to S.E. and back again several times. The breadfruit just cumingripe was all destroyed. Ab this is really all the food the natives «UVA to depend on at this season of the year until the

yams come in, in March, they have been reduced almost to Btarvatiun, especially as the plnintaina and bananas are destroyed as well. Tongatabu suffered the most in this respect. There is very little damage done to the cocoanut». The natives and residents all expected another hurricane, and while there the John Wesley had. very strong breezes, being compelled to ride with titree anchors, and upper yards down.-S. M. Herald. _
