The s.s. Rotorua, J. Macfarlane, commander, arrived in the bay at 9.15 a.m. on Friday. She cleared Sydney Heads at 8 p.m. on the 11th, and encountered a strong easterly gale, which continued the whole of the passage; passed the Three Kings at 6 p.m. on the 16th, but did not arrive at Auckland till 1 a.m. on the 18th; sailed again at 6.30 p.m. for the South, and anchored in the bay as above. She experienced head winds and moderate weather down the coast.
The steamers Manaia, Result, and Fairy, all left on Thursday for their respective destinations, viz., Wairoa, Mohaka, and Blackhead.
The s.s. Rotorua, Captain Macfarlane, left about 4 p.m. on Friday after discharging her cargo to the Sir Donald. The latter sustained some damage whilst laying alongside. The Rotorua had not a great many passengers from Napier.
The schooner Albatross has a cargo of sawn timber from Whangapoua, consigned to Mr Johnson, Spit.
The Union Company’s s.s. Rotorua, hence on Friday at 4 p.m., arrived in Wellington at 12.30 p.m., on Saturday.
The ketch Mary Ann Hudson returned on Saturday from Mohaka, with a full cargo of maize. On the passage up she sprung a leak, and she had to be discharged immediately on arrival in the Iron pot to keep her afloat. There was no damage to the cargo.
The s.s. Result arrived off Mohaka at 7 a.m. last Friday. At 2 p.m. a signal was made from shore to take the bar. Captain Baxter having the day before received a message that the bar was good he determined to try it. On going in she grounded on the bar, and went on the beach close to the mouth of the river, where she lay till all the cargo was landed. The captain then tried to get her in the river, but the fresh coming down caught her on the port bow, and canted her head seaward. Unfortunately a number of the inhabitants and natives were on board lending their assistance in getting her in the river when she canted, and as there was too much sea on to land them, they were brought on to Napier. Captain Baxter desires, through our columns, to return his sincere thanks to Messrs G. Bee, Sutherland, Ross, Brandon, Fannin, and the natives, for their prompt and efficient assistance.
The p.s. Manaia brings a full cargo of maize for Wairoa.
The s.s. Kiwi, Captain Campbell, arrived from Wellington via the Coast on Saturday at 9 p.m., and was brought to the wharf on Sunday at noon. She has about 30 tons of cargo for this port. The Kiwi, left Wellington on Tuesday last at 5 p.m., called at Castle Point to land some passengers, and arrived at Blackhead at 7 p.m. on Wednesday; she succeeded in landing about 74 tons of cargo for Messrs Hunter, and left at noon on Saturday for Napier, arriving as above. The ‘Frisco portion of our mails was on board the Kiwi, but neither the Captain or Mr Decker, the mate, was informed of the fact before leaving Wellington. Captain Campbell never suspected he had an English Mail, as he informed us the mail money he secured, amounted to 2s 6d.
The three-masted schooner Silver Cloud was 12 days going to Newcastle on her last trip, as against 9 ½ days on two previous trips.
Capt. Campbell, of the s.s. Fairy, was obliged to return to port with only the Blackhead cargo landed, too much sea prevented anything being put ashore at Pourerere.
The natives who were brought to Napier by the Result against their wish, were paid for their services on Monday, and leave for Mohaka overland on Tuesday.
The s.s. Stormbird, Captain Doile, had a smooth and calm passage from Wellington. She brings about 50 tons of general cargo.
The s.s. Southern Cross, Captain Holmes, arrived about half-past four on Wednesday, having had a head wind nearly the whole way down. In crossing the bar at high water, she bumped several times, although only drawing about 9 feet.
The barquentine Falcon was towed out on Thursday by the Sir Donald. In crossing the bar at the westward channel the Falcon bumped once heavily, although only drawing eight feet two inches.
The s.s. Result is in charge of Captain Robert Baxter this trip, in consequence of the indisposition of Captain W.E. Baxter. She left on Thursday for Mohaka and Wairoa. From the latter port she will bring back a cargo of maize.
The p.s. Manaia also left on Thursday for Mohaka and Wairoa. She is expected to load maize at Wairoa.
It is reported in Wellington that Captain J.C. Andrew is likely to get the command [of] the Tairaroa on the coast in connection with the Wanaka, Taupo, and Hawea.
The s.s. Rotorua is due here on Sunday next, and will be the bearer of the outward English mails.
The s.s. Fairy left on Wednesday for Coleman and McHardy’s station. We hope she will be successful in landing the whole of her cargo.
