Arrived Nov. 3, barque Bride, from London. The Bride, which had been 127 days from England, arrived on the 3rd November. She had very fine weather during the voyage, the length of which is attributed to the light winds and calm weather experienced. She brought 42 passengers, and a large cargo of general merchandize. The Bride was placed on the inner berth alongside the new wharf on Monday the 5th and was the first vessel to discharge cargo there. She draws sixteen feet, and was moored at low water. The facility with which vessels will be able to unload at this wharf will be readily appreciated, and will prevent that delay which too often arises where the assistance of boats is required. We believe arrangements have been made with the Coleman Company, so that their steamer will in future use the Government instead of the Albion Wharf.

Testimonial to Mr. J. S. Cross.— A handsome gold chronometer watch, of the value of £50, has been received from England by the Bride, and is intended by the members of the Nelson Coast Steam Association to be presented to Mr. J. S. Cross, pilot and harbour master, to mark their appreciation of the services rendered by him to the company while the Tasmanian Maid steamer was engaged in running to and from this port.
