    SHORT OF PROVISIONS.—The Newcastle Herald of Wednesday says:—Captain Le Coutier arrived this morning in Newcastle, from Adelaide, May 1st, noon. On Saturday May 4th, at 9 a.m., when off Wilson's Promontory, running before a brisk S. W. gale, observed a three-masted screw steamer steering towards us under sail— nearer approach showed her to have ensign (jack downwards), signal of distress, passed close under her stern, when her captain shouted "we are short of provisions, can you supply me." I at once replied, yes, send a boat, and I reduced sail to lower topsails and hove the ship to. The steamer was the "Alhambra" of Melbourne, from Otago to Melbourne (ten days out), owing to a succession of strong westerly gales. She had over 200 passengers on board and was short of provisions, and then had but four tons of coal, and was using her spare spars for fuel. This report we learned from the second officer, and chief steward, who came to us in the steamer's life boat. I supplied them with their requirements, and at 11 a.m. bid them farewell, two hours having thus passed owing to the strong wind blowing. (A telegram in the same paper announces the safe arrival of the Alhambra in Melbourne.)

    At the ordinary meeting of the Stewards and Cooks' Union, at Warren's Sydney Hotel, on Monday evening, Mr. H. Tombs, the vice-president, occupying the chair, the question of giving support to the operatives of the bootmaking trade was again considered, some misconception as to the amount voted by the union having arisen, thereby causing the publication of an erroneous statement in the columns of the daily press. On the motion of Mr. C. Clarke, seconded by Mr. D. Grinton, it was unanimously resolved that a donation of £5 5s. be handed by the delegate to the uses of the locked-out operatives, and that a levy of 2½ per cent on the wage earnings of the members of the union be collected for the same purpose. ...

    Charles Clarke, landlord of the Exchange Hotel, Flinders-street, was charged on summons, at the City Court on Thursday, with having sold liquor during prohibited hours. Sub inspector Ellis explained that the case arose out of one recently heard in that court against a cabman, named O'Neill, for breaking the defendant's windows. The evidence for the defence was that several cabmen, who were awaiting guests at a party that was being held in the hotel, obtained drinks in the bar between half-past 12 and 4 o'clock on the morning of the 7th inst. Mr. Gillott, in defence, said that the liquor might have been supplied, but it was in contravention of the defendant's orders, and in consequence of his being busy attending to the guests of the party in his house he could not see what was going on. The Bench said the evidence bore out the charge, but, in consideration of the circumstances under which the liquor was procured, a nominal penalty only would be inflicted. The defendant was fined 5s., with 20s. costs.

    The ordinary meeting of the Stewards' and Cooks' Union of Victoria Federated was held at Warren's Sydney Hotel, William street, on Wednesday evening, the chair being taken by the president of the society, Mr. Chas. Clarke. The secretary, when presenting the accounts, stated that since the issue of the new books of rules, the receipts for the week had been the largest in amount since the formation of the union. After the transaction of the ordinary business, the president addressed those present with reference to the action of certain members, who, it was alleged, had, without any authority whatever, attended in a body upon a new vessel which lately arrived in the port, and endeavoured to intimidate the cook into joining the union. Mr. Clarke stated that such a course was quite unjustifiable, and would be altogether discountenanced by the society. The secretary was deputed to do the work of interviewing strangers, and placing before them the advantages of the union, and it was presumed that he had sufficient tact and judgment to avoid anything like undue interference with the opinions of those whom he desired to enrol. In the present case the person had already signified to the secretary his willingness to join the society, and therefore the conduct of those members was the more unjustifiable. The officers of the union desired to gain the respect of employers for their society, and their actions should never be rendered nugatory by the ill-judged proceedings of unauthorised deputations of members, who, if they got snubbed for their pains, had only themselves to thank or it. Such practices were as bad as the pernicious system of "ratting," known in certain districts in England, and did much to degrade unions in the eyes of the public; in addition, he would remind members that under rule 23 of the new code this very offence was made punishable by fine or severe penalty. The remarks of the president were loudly applauded throughout, and after the election of several new members the meeting adjourned.

    The ordinary meeting of the Stewards' and Cooks' Union of Victoria took place at the Sydney Hotel, William-street, on Wednesday evening. The chair was filled by Mr. Chas. Clarke, the president, Mr. R. A. Murray occupying the vice-chair. The act and regulations under which it is intended to register the society were laid upon the table, and a sub-committee was elected to carry out the preliminaries. The appointment of trustees was brought forward, and the 13th inst. fixed as the day for closing nominations for the office. Mr. Clarke then addressed the meeting on the subject of the general position of the union, and dwelt upon the great advance the society had made during the past two months. He complimented the members upon the orderly and deliberative character of the meetings as they were now conducted. All this improvement meant greater stability to the union, and as their financial position was equally good, there need be no fear for the future of the society, so long as its affairs were carried out faithfully under the present form of government. ...

    The Stewards and Cooks' Union of Victoria held their ordinary meeting at the Sydney Hotel, William-street, on Wednesday evening, the chair being taken, in the absence of the president, by Mr. J. D. Pearson, and the vice-chair by Mr. J. Stark. Mr. W. H. Wallace, the delegate from the Adelaide Union, attended the meeting, and explained his views upon many matters affecting the several branches. The secretary gave a résumé of the work which had been done at the late congress in Sydney, and stated, in addition, that Mr. Wallace, Mr C. Clarke, and himself had attended a meeting of the New South Wales Union, at which a committee had been appointed to confer with them on the subject of complete federation. At this conference a basis had been arranged on which it was proposed to create a thorough reciprocity amongst all the branches, so that concerted action could be relied upon in the event of a trade difficulty arising in any port. The secretary read the suggestions which had been adopted by the committee and his remarks, like those of Mr. Wallace, were received with much favour. ...
